Musical Professional Teacher looking for new students to teach music and theory

Methodology

I usually teach without any book for one reason that I believe I can provide the most essential information without having to dive into a book which most often than not can have a lot of information that may not be so necessary, however, ones I do get the student equipped with the most, it is much easier of a transition to go to the book as they have much easier time to understand what is going on and are able to progress much more fluently.

Professional Summary
I have been always passionate about my piano teaching. I started as early as 11 years old as a way to help my friends who were also very interested in music, I would tutor them for free and I enjoyed being able to do something nice for my friends but also give them something useful. I started to teach private lessons later on as I got more professional and I by then had already a good experience in teaching so I can teach kids who are just bare beginners. I Have been someone who is very organized with myself because I have been in times where I had so much on the plate and I liked being able to be busy and yet maintain responsibility. Teaching is also a great therapy for me as It is always a pleasure to see kids grow into amazing musicians and being able to help them achieve their dreams and goals is just one of many great reasons why I love to be a piano teacher. I learn everyday but I also love to give knowledge to people, whether it is something small to someone who needs help, I genuinely enjoy working with people and being able to provide useful help.

Surrey, BC Jun 2012
musicians and better people. I mainly taught Kids from ages 5-13 and in my experience, I am someone who can get down to the student's thought process and pick out what is best for them so that they can make the best use out of what I have to provide for them. I start teaching students visually as I noticed in my experience that students naturally want to learn by seeing things rather then having to go through a book which most teachers do, which is also fine but I try to narrow the information down for the student so that they get the gist useful and essential material in their growth. I am a great communicator and my English proficiency is top notch so for me language is no barrier whatsoever.
Online Piano courses Surrey , BC Online Piano courses Feb 2015 Some students needed a way to get in touch with me whenever they would get sick or because I do YouTube, some people requested that I do online courses to show them some tricks and some tips on how to do this and that and showing them the theory behind. Ive been doing this for around 5 years and I have no problem teaching kids online especially given the current CONVID19 situation. I have all the equipment necessary to teach students and Its a great experience too.
