I believe that learning is individualistic–no two students learn the same, and thus they shouldn't be taught using the same methods. Music, specifically, is a very personal experience for all, and I believe that when a teacher builds a connection with their students, a passion for learning will begin to grow.
Charmaine doesn't have a specific teaching method, because she accommodates how she teaches according to the student's interest. She loves to teach little children, but she is mainly what you could call a piano tutor. She helps with whatever the students want to work on.
Each student will be mentored according to their individual learning style. While recognizing their true potential and capabilities as a visual learner, a verbal learner, a physical learner, or for those who prefer using sound and music, their inspiration and talents will be nurtured so they are able to excel and succeed through a structured course of development.
My approach is to first develop an individual plan to give you immediate musical growth and satisfaction in the activities you are currently involved. You tell me where you want to go, I will show you how to get there. Together we will form exercises and learning strategies to fit your learning style.
As a teacher, I like to find out the music goals of my student and design a plan to accommodate their wishes. In the case of school age children, I would discuss a suitable for them program with parents.
I offer students a personalized learning experienced developed to improve existing abilities, and to both introduce and master key tasks and knowledge. I will introduce both practical and non practical knowledge to aid students in their development.
My teaching methods are flexible for each person and is generally based on what you want to earn at the end of the sessions.
I evaluate each student's abilities and goals in order to design a personalized study plan and select repertoire that is simultaneously instructive and enjoyable. My extensive experience working with all kinds of students allows me to adapt to everyone's needs, making my lessons consistently encouraging and productive.
My first priority is getting to the heart of each student's strengths, weaknesses, and goals so that they can practice and perform as effectively and enjoyably as possible. From building foundations in rudiments and technique, to fine-tuning an audition or concert piece, I am committed to providing my students with the tools and guidance they need to play the most beautiful music they can.
My teaching method is simple: teach for the student. As important as it is to me that my students advance musically, it's just as important that they enjoy learning and have a positive association with music. Everyone learns differently, so this will vary person to person.
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.
I teach music and theory concurrently to help ensure students understand key concepts and ideas using a gradual progression of difficulty. Interspersed with regular lessons is the opportunity for students to pick what they'd like to do next such as for auditions, contests and concerts, or simply just for fun.
I base my theory and technique teaching on the RCM curriculum.
As a pianist and a teacher, it is important to assess the abilities of each individual student and to be attentive their particular strengths. It is valuable to allow for each student to develop the necessary tools to achieve their desired goals.
My main approach to teaching is based on positive reinforcement. Different people have different learning curves (i.e. some people learn fast while other learn at a more steady pace).
I use the authority, demonstrator and facilitator method. The demonstrator retains the formal authority role by showing students what they need to know. The facilitator promotes self-learning and help students develop critical thinking skills and retain knowledge that leads to self-actualization.
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.
I am looking to teach lessons during the summer (July 1, 2018- September 1, 2018), and winter vacation (December 15, 2018 -December 20, 2018, and January 2, 2019 - January 7, 2019). I am available to teach online (Skype) or at my house. I have a piano available for these purposes.
My teaching methods is to start from the beginning and get a solid foundation before actual starting to play piano. This will make learning the piano faster in the long run. Patience is a virtue as learning a new instrument is like learning a new language.
I like to give lessons to children and I have always chose this category because I know how to deal with children and I can relate to children while teaching them so they can learn fast and with a bit of fun.
Through my lessons, I try to reach my students with the right balance of personalized attention, patience, practical training, and positive encouragement. I try to focus the lesson on the interests of the student, and within that, find ways to teach all the technical and theoretical elements.
My teaching methods combine what I learnt from Italian bel canto, Vienna vocal techniques, and New York Broadway singing skills. I teach with imagination, anatomy, and body moves and gestures depending on each student's need and what helps most to achieve the goal as well as successfully exploit the technique required at the moment.
I am able to teach all ages and levels but elementary students enjoy my lessons the best. A typical lesson with me consists of a warm-up, a piece of the students choice (i.e. pop song), and their RCM repertoire. I strive for my students to be well-rounded in the music industry so I teach them to be proficient in sight reading, techniques, and most importantly, to fall in love with music.
I believe that every student is unique in their learning capabilities. I ensure that every lesson is tailored to their strengths as well as working on improving their weaknesses. I believe that every student's success is dependent on their willingness to learn and thrive in a safe and happy environment.
I like to teach students who are already very familiar with the basics and intermediates of piano, and have potential and musicality as an innate ability. I am passionate with my teaching and create an atmosphere of intensity during lessons. Extremely flexible to how a student learns or takes in information, however, the student needs to be good at retaining information as well.
1-on-1 approach tailored to the needs of the student regarding technique and music understanding/interpretation. Capable of teaching how to both improvise and to read sheet music. Able to use the RCM material, prepare for exams, etc.
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.
My teaching methods revolve heavily around learning to read music and, in doing so, absorbing as much new material as possible. This is what allows students to advance quickly and to build up an ability that will continue to serve them throughout their life.
First and foremost, a good understanding of the structure of the music is key to learning efficiently and developing a solid technique is crucial to enjoying playing the pieces that you love! If you're looking for high-level instruction, you've come to the right place.
