Teaching Philosophy

~Love of Music | Music for Life~

My teaching philosophy is to assist students in the pursuit of musical excellence by focusing on the whole musicianship and inspire them to reach their full musical potential. 

I am deeply dedicated to giving students rich musical knowledge and inspirations, allowing them to discover a lifelong fulfillment and passion in music. Ultimately, I hope to integrate music as a key component of students' lives, and hopefully, their lives are enriched by music.

Lesson Content

Learning through play based and tailored to meet students' needs and interests, lessons are always full of enjoyment, curiosity, and learning, along with building confidence, boosting motivation and stimulating creativity. After all, students find joy, happiness, and love in learning.

 

Building solid foundations and musical concepts is important at the early stages of musical engagement, such as good hand and sitting posture, fluency in music reading, good musical ear and sense of rhythm, proper piano techniques, fundamental knowledge of music theory, music history and musical interpretation etc. It does require lots of time and patience but the rewards make it well worthwhile.

 

Pieces will be chosen from different musical periods. Improvisation, composition, scales, sight reading, theory and aural will be covered in lessons too.

 

Students are often encouraged to participate in competitions, recitals, and exams. It will not only let them enjoy the journey, but also bring them fruitful, memorable and rewarding experiences.

If you have any further queries or would like to schedule an interview / assessment, please feel free to contact Aileen.
