Lau believes music is the way to enrich lives, not only the joy, happiness playing the instrument, but also touching souls. Each student has their own personalities; Lau believes different pedagogies applied to different students accordingly. All-rounded music learning is not only learning the interpretation of the piece, but also the historical background, musical style and theory behind the piece.
