In short, my teaching methodology is built on the importance of listening and being open.
I think my first role is to meet the student where they are by listening fully and attentively to them, which is necessary in order to understand how it is I can help them in any area of their life. In this case, as a piano teacher, my concern would be that which concerns their music-making, their goals, and their overall musical experience. Openness and presence, instead of following what I have pre-determined to be "right" (strictly adhering to a pre-determined plan), is the most important part of the job, because, without it completely, there is no relationship with the student and no guarantee that I can truly be a support to them. It's about finding out how to form the bridge between the student and what might be considered "right", rather than forcing the student to conform to impersonal standards.
I have obtained the ARCT Diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music for Piano Performance and currently am a Classical Piano Performance major of the Mason Gross School of the Arts. In the past, I've prepared students for the RCM level 6 and 8 exams, competed in music competitions and festivals across Canada such as the Canadian Music Festival (Two-time National finalist), Kiwanis Festivals (Fraser Valley and Vancouver), Orford Music Academy, Richmond Music Festival, amongst others. In terms of teaching, I've taught two students previously to complete and pass their level 6 and 8 RCM exams.
