I believe education is any experience that has a formative effect in people, Education is a process where people transmits their knowledge from one generation to another.
My aim is to motivate students to being a personal exploration, and this can happened if they are inspired with the improvement made at classes and after practice sessions and confident in their abilities. Best teachers are the ones who adopts the perspective of an eternal learner.
To me, a key element of teaching is keeping the student motivate. I teach with a smile and open personality that helps me to interact with the students as a guide through their learning process. I believe that effective teachers understand what knowledge their students already have, to tap into it and build upon it every day.
My objective is to motivate students to a level of independence where they develop the skills to learn for themselves, exploring the way they play and trying to figure out by themselves what could it be the problem.
I believe that my enthusiastic and self-exploration approach to teach music enable students acquire musical and technique skills that keeps them interested and motivated. The results I have seen on students are positive.
She explains everything very well!
First I need to know where the student is at their playing, then we can start working on breathing, technique, and repertoire, creating a personalized plan.
