陳永業校友 (音樂)於今年6月7日由香港青年協會主辦的「網上教學達人大賽」榮膺第一名!在初賽的時候,陳校友成功地展示對運用不同教學軟件的熟練程度。面對一眾不諳音樂的觀眾和評審,他選擇了一個較適合公眾人士的教學定位,就是以應用為主,讓他們能於短時間掌握演奏樂曲的技巧。這個較容易上手的學習模式,配合清晰講解與靈活運用教學軟件,使他成功擠身決賽十強之行列,後來更順利奪冠。

The stories are submitted by alumni. Facts and opinions in the articles published are solely their personal views.
