My Teaching Philosophy
Learning should inspire a love of music that lasts a life time.
As a teacher I want to inspire my pupils, break down their learning into manageable steps and encourage them so that they feel positive and confident. I aim to inspire my pupils so that they have a passion for practice.
Learning should be fun, engaging
Pupils sign up for piano lessons to learn to play the piano. I pride my teaching approach on creating a positive and happy environment where pupils are relaxed and therefore able to learn.
Learning should create an all-rounded musician
There needs to be a learning journey that delivers many aspects to create an all rounded musician. Music is after all a sound and not about just reading the notes. I work with my pupils to look at the character of the music and form a connection with the music they are playing.
Learning should be pupil centred
Lessons are tailored to each individual because all students' needs are different. My pupils play a key part in defining their goals, choosing music content and evolving their own objectives and destiny.
