I've started teaching piano in a local music school in 2016 and from 2018 to present I've been focusing on teaching only private students. I'm a full time piano teacher with 30 students. My students are as young as 3.5 year olds to retirees. The highest grade I've taught is currently grade 6.
Learning piano should be enjoyable and fun! As long as a student enjoys what he or she is learning, they would then be able to maximise to their fullest potential! There is not one fixed teaching method that I apply to all my students as I believe every student is different, I would always tweak my methods such that it could be adapted better by the student.
Most of my students would find that I'm approachable and amiable as I do not believe in scolding or being extremely firm with students and this might lose trust between the student and I. I believe that students and teacher should work together as a team so that we can successfully attain our short and long term goals set in our piano journey!
I've been playing the piano since I'm 6 and have not stopped since, I've not stopped learning the piano and am still embarking on more qualifications.
