Profile of Piano Teacher
Looking back, it’s an amazing journey I had with piano and music.
I started learning the piano after hearing someone having her lesson and got fascinated by the sounds coming from the keys.
Over the years, I improved steadily and got to perform in many private and public recitals and took up the O Levels Music Elective Program. Other than just playing classical piano, I also played and performed pop music on keyboard and sang during my tertiary studies.
And thanks to my wonderful teachers, I’ve attained ATCL Diploma in Piano Performance and ABRSM Grade 8 Theory.
I believe that learning an instrument comes with extensive benefits such as promoting creativity, memory, discipline… as these are what I have experienced myself too. And being able to play an instrument definitely improves confidence in social settings!
When I become a music instructor, I vary my teaching styles as I understand that every student learn differently. I want to maximise the learning potential of every student, so they learn the piano well, play the piano well, and ultimately, play and enjoy good music!
Teaching has given me immense satisfaction as I see my students improving and responding positively to my teachings and lessons.
I also know how difficult it is to have the discipline to self practice. I remember back then as a student, even when I really love piano, I still did not have the motivation to practice everyday.
Therefore, now that I’m a teacher, I use different ways and activities to build up my students’ motivation in learning and practice. These activities allow my students to work towards little goals, and have them look forward to my lessons every week!
With many years of solid classical training, I’m good in sight reading, piano techniques, and performance, both pop and classical music. I hope to impart all of my my skills to my students, just like how my teachers have shaped me as a musician today.
