A biological science major first-year student who loves music and hopes to bring music to more people

Methodology

I would like to start off with how to place hands on the keyboard and then slowly teach the students to read the staff and music.
1. Ask them why they choose to learn this instrument and try to get their interests
2. Demonstrate how to place their hands on the keyboard and explain how and why it is placed this way
2. Explain to them how the keyboard works(positions of notes)and teach them fundamental knowledge of dynamics and rhythms.
3. Teach them how to read music step by step, and let them practice reading it by providing more music.
4. Teach them to play notes based on the music they read with left and right hand playing separately.
5. Gradually makes the music harder and teach them how to put hands together to play a sheet music.

Background

I am a first-year international student studying biological science at the University of Calgary. I started playing the piano at the age of 5 and continued with this hobby till the age of 15 where I had limited time to play the piano as high school started. However, I developed more interests in music such as learning how to play clarinet and saxophone in the high school band and found my passion for vocal singing as a group(choir). I love music and I desire to be a high school teacher as my career.
