We all know that music has always been an integral part of any culture. Accordingly, taking piano lessons has never been more popular. So, one remaining question is this: Why choose me? What makes me, as a piano instructor, different from others?
My Interpersonal Relationship Skills
Parents often tell me about my interpersonal aptitude to relate and connect to different kinds of students, a vital but often overlooked component of teaching. Those taking piano lessons with me generally feel very comfortable and relaxed with me. What good is it for a piano teacher to have a lot of musical knowledge without being able to develop strong relationships? Along the same lines, they often share with others about my intuitive ability to adapt to different kinds of students (e.g. gender, age, level, personality, etc.). Specifically, they talk about my skill to tailor my curriculum and demand according to their needs, goals, vision and abilities.
My pursuit of musical excellence
My families appreciate my driving passion to motivate and inspire musical excellence. Developing advanced, creative musical artists defines my teaching studio. They will tell you that I have an endless drive to challenge my students in the smallest of details, proper technique, musical artistry and creative expression. Yet, they will also not hesitate to also add that I have a natural gift to balance it with grace, understanding, and encouragement.
My clear, creative, descriptive teaching
Because teaching the piano is the perfect synergy of art and science, it has endless facets (e.g. notation, technique, rhythm, dynamics, phrasing, creativity, theory, etc.) Many piano teachers have a lot of knowledge and degrees, but don't have the slightest idea how to present all their knowledge in a coherent, logical, simple and effective manner to the point where students are able to easily grasp all the necessary concepts and clearly understand their goals and assignments. They tell me that I equip them with the proper "tools" to make their practice more effective.
