Ms Hara
















Senior Teacher

Ms Hara serves the school as a piano, violin and Music for the Intelligent Mind (MIM) teacher . She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education, Major in Music Education at Colegio de la Inmaculada Concepcion in Cebu, Philippines in 1994. In 1992, while in her second year of college, she studied violin and viola as a scholar at the Salvador and Pilar Sala Foundation and eventually joined the Cebu Youth Symphony Orchestra, which ten years later was renamed to Peace Philharmonic Philippines. Within that 10-year period, she joined several concert seasons around the Philippines as a viola player. She was employed as a full time music teacher for graders aged 6 to 10, for over ten years in St. Theresa College, a prestigious school for girls in Cebu, Philippines.

Ms. Hara once organized and trained a choral group with members aged 8 to 12, which garnered Third Place in the Grand Finals in Manila. The then organized choral group went through a very tough screening. From then on, she has been invited as a trainer in various choral groups in church, government and school settings. All the choral groups she trained won several awards, always in the top three (from First prize to Third prize).

Aside from being a full-time classroom teacher, she also conducted private tutorials in violin, viola, and piano to children and adults at the Salvador and Pilar Sala Foundation and other institutions. After 12 years of her career (1994-2006), she ventured to Kuching, East Malaysia, teaching music and violin among pre-schoolers in Junior Learning House (a kindergarten school) and in International Music House (a music school).

From Malaysia, she was hired back as a music teacher by St. Theresa College, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines in 2008-2009. She has attended various trainings or seminars, workshops and short courses such as the Special Course on Kodaly Methodology, the XIIIth International Kodaly Symposium, a Seminar Workshop on Music Therapy for Special Education, and Functional Literacy Program in Sign Language (Level 1).
