Although not everyone will end up playing the piano for a paying audience, my job is to make their process fulfilling and productive. Art and music teach the creative and aesthetic side of humanity and good teaching will give the student intrinsic value in this art world.
Not only do I educate the student in musicianship, reading and listening, but students learn how to use music to express themselves. Students should look forward to their lessons and practice and, therefore, I adjust my teaching method to accommodate the student’s learning style while guiding them through the learning challenges with patience and understanding.
Playing the piano and taking lessons, does not just involve notes on a page and fingers on a keyboard, but it musically educates the whole person.
