Online Piano Lessons with RCM Certified Piano Teacher with 10 years of teaching and more than 25 years of playing experience. Music is love and love should be taught to everybody.

Methodology

Piano playing is not just playing alone. Music to me is a way of communicating love and passion as well as the deep true feeling inside the player’s heart. The first step of performing music is to understand how to convey feeling with notes and playing with the dynamics. From my point of view, a true musician is who can transit such feelings through their performance.

Background

I started learning music since I was 6 and piano since I was 8 with well-known and professional Armenian teachers. Since 18 years old I have attended several educational music classes such as solfege, teaching music, and music fundamentals to enhance the teaching methods. I studied music education course in Sydney, Australia, and Piano Teaching Pedagogy in the Royal Conservatory of Music in Canada.
I had several public performances since I was at high school and got the "first place" reward of best piano performance in the " Beethoven Music Festival" in 2004. I had this chance to perform in several concerts as a pianist and present my love of music to the public.
During these 10 years of teaching piano experience, I invented different methods of teaching, especially for children. I could be able to implant a standard method of practicing for the piano which my students have benefited a lot from that and this method has transformed their attribute toward piano practicing and performing viewpoint.
I have thrived passion and entered feelings and life into my students' performances.
