Piano Teaching Philosophy
Music plays an important role in our life. It should be integrated into what education considers the “core curriculum”. It is not just fun or entertaining; it also provides a great exercise for our brain. The students who are more actively involved in music studies are more likely to experience a higher sense of self confidence and accomplishment. Research shows this type of mental exercise appears to help strengthen students’ academic performance particularly in the areas of math and reading.
As a piano teacher, I am always looking at ways to improve my teaching methods. My graduate studies gave me the power and skills to be an effective practitioner. I strive to make a change in the class and make music more interesting to the students. I believe an active engaged approach to teaching leads to better learning and students would gain a greater understanding of what music has to offer.
I love teaching and respect my students. Also, I believe patience is another essential skill for all teachers to develop. Without love, respect and patience, it is impossible to create a stable and happy learning environment which will encourage a student's best work.
