I believe music is best transmitted as a whole. I strive to ensure that you, as my student, are well-rounded in all areas: technique, ear training, sight reading, memory, musicianship and theory. I am passionate about sharing my love of music with others. I believe that there is a musician in everyone and my door is open to anyone, no matter their age or musical background.
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.
My teaching methodology is to make class exciting and enjoyable yet still filled with learning materials. Starting with warm ups, then technical requirements and songs, and ending with some fun rhythm and theory related activities. Each class is designed to further the students' skills and understanding of the piano and songs they are playing.
We will use different methods of music theory and practice. Music theory: reading, listening, writing and singing music.
Many of my students follow the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum, but I am very flexible with my teaching approach. I think its important to create a variety in the lessons, whether its incorporating games/activities or playing the occasional pop hits.
I acknowledge that every students learns a bit differently or a lot differently then the other students. I tailor each class to the individual and try to tap into their personal background in order to make sure that they understand the information and procedures completely.
When I meet a student, in the first class I will see what they are looking for in my classes, and we will discuss what the aim of the class is. In general, I aim to educate youth and encourage musical growth. Specifically for students learning the RCM material, I will generally teach them a grade a year, unless I find that they are progressing very speedily and well.
I take a wide variety of teaching methods for voice, piano. I cater to the students learning strengths while making their learning organic while having fun. I have used RCM, Trinity exams for student prepratory and encourage performance to grow their musical experiences through concerts.
My teaching methods are learning the most basics of basics first, then adding on to each skill to effectively and efficiently grow their knowledge in piano, but at each person’s personal skill level. I base my classes in skill level and what each person wants to begin learning in. I also look into the person’s interest to help them love piano, and help them learn what they want to learn.
I am a positive, supportive and a caring teacher. I believe that every student is unique, therefore the methodology applied varies depending on the student’s strengths and weaknesses. I am a professional flutist with minor in piano and I have been teaching all over the world.
My teaching style is to create a program of learning that suits the students needs, goals, and wants. I am comfortable using any piano or music method, or can create one. I have a solid track record for students succeeding at RCM exams, however my focus is on helping students become musicians that love their instrument and can play a variety of musical styles.
