Ms. Thao Pham
Students often ask me why I decided to become a music teacher? Well, my genuine love for music was nurtured by my mother who would always ask me to accompany her singing. My love for music was deepened by singing and playing piano in church choir during my teenage years. Teaching private piano lessons at home, made me realize how much I love sharing music with others. Through these experiences, I knew I wanted to be a music teacher. I am proud to say that this will be my tenth year at East Early College High School. I love the students at EECHS and as a result, I am willing to drive an hour everyday just to work here. I am married with three adorable children. Aside from work and sitting in traffic, I conduct a Vietnamese Church Choir on the weekends and I enjoy reading, gardening and traveling with family.
