I have about 5 years of teaching experience and I am a full time piano teacher. I have taught students that range from 5 to 61 years old and I teach in students house and also in my own home studio.
I am a patient and motivating piano teacher that believes in making lessons engaging. Hence when teaching young students,I try to makes classes lively where we not only play pieces and do theory, but we also use props, stories, stickers and colors to learn.
This helps my young students remain interested while boosting their skills and knowledge at the same time.
For students that are older, we focus on the exam pieces as there is a need to excel in the piano exams.
But In lessons we also try to play songs of different repertoires, that are out of the exam pieces and my students tend to find this variety interesting and this helps increase their exposure and skills as well. So in general, my students look forward to having lessons and tend to stay with me for the Long term
I am currently studying at SIM-UOL for my Degree in Economics and Finance. I teach piano part time. I have been playing piano since I was 7 years old.
I started teaching as a part time job when I was in Polytechnic (in 2014) and have been continuing to do so all from beginner levels up till Grade 3 but all of my students play for pleasure with no exams. I teach at home as well as go over to students homes for classes. I find pleasure in teaching as much as playing myself.
I like to set goals (chart) for students at the beginning of each month and review with the student at the end of every month to see how far we have progressed and small awards.
I believe in also taking interest in my students interest in different kinds of songs that they may want to learn and modify it to their level so they can learn other than just songs I choose for them at their individual levels. I also modify hanon exercises for my students to practice along with scales.

Hi I’m Rebecca, I started music teaching in 2008. My students from different ages and skill levels from variety of musical styles, including jazz, blues, classical and coaching students towards taking examinations and performing live on stage.
In my music teaching career, most of my students started their music journey from beginner with me and completed their ABRSM Grade 8.
I believe having a great passion for music will keep my motivation of hardworking in piano teaching. My passion in piano teaching is that not just let students learn the music notes and rhythm but also cultivate student’s appreciation in music art. I preferred an effective variety of specialist teaching techniques to make lessons fun and enjoyable.;-)
I will cater the teaching materials (variety of piano books & theory books) for my students. I understand each pupils have different progress and preference.

Having had this experience, I have specialized myself into intelligently and effectively teaching youths and adult beginners to be able to progress at an accelerated pace
In my teaching, i take emphasis in simplifying musical concepts and breaking down the complexities of piano technique into bite size bits, which serve as enablers to facilitate the creation of a positive learning cycle through the students development of competencies and confidence
With the employment of an effective practice routine that i have developed over the years, many of my beginner students have been able to start playing the pieces they like after just a few lessons
Teaching music through pieces that my students are enthusiastic about is quintessential to my approach as I have found this to be an effective way to maintain their interest that has often been spoiled by rigid and strict methodologies
Through this, the lessons remain student-centric and always has a higher chance of being a good and lasting match

Her approach is one that applies kindness, patience and an understanding that a piano student's life does not naturally always have to revolve around music in as much as it is capable of drawing a person in that direction. Gentleness is always necessary where music brings a musician to some unintended place which may bring forth some unspoken memory or experience requiring an emotional release but these are rare occurrences and are to be handled with care.
Routine lessons require the development of proper technique and a right understanding of the way different components of music have to function to create music that is sound and satisfying as a whole. Besides this, a certain degree of spontaneity in music lessons make learning enjoyable.

As she graduated with a Diploma in Child Psychology and Early Education, she has the experience and confidence in teaching young children. For young learners, She incorporates music and movement activities, rhythmic games as well as singing into the lessons to instill a love for music and reinforce concepts taught.
She has experience teaching older students of primary school age, secondary school age and even adult students. For older learners, more emphasis is placed on technique and mastery of basic foundation skills to ensure that they will have the necessary knowledge and tools required to learn (and sight read) pieces well instead of just playing by memory.
For students who are not interested in taking exams or who would like a more relaxed approach, she gives them some control over their lessons by letting them suggest fun pieces which they would like to learn (e.g. Disney songs, anime songs, pop songs).
