Trained in Beijing, Toronto and Germany by some of the best flutists in the world, Jiajia’s approach to teaching is to not only pass down the skills and traditions, but also teach students how to appreciate music and to make it part of their lives.

Jiajia teaches at Mount Royal University Conservatory in Calgary, and her studio of students brings her much joy.
