My philosophy of teaching piano and music is an integrated, individualistic approach. My responsibility as a teacher is to tap into the enthusiasm of the student - what excites them and captivates them about music and nurture that curiosity. While covering the spectrum of theory, technique, and depth of sounds - it is also important to keep it fresh with innovative approaches to learning different concepts and I achieve this using many different ways honed over the years. 'Practice' has become a loaded word with learning music and I encourage individuals to be self-motivated from their own desire to learn and reap the benefits of what 'practi ... View Profile
