I love teaching, seeing results of my work, creating a special Music language for children so Music won't be a boring activity their parents force them to do. I believe as a highly educated musician my mission is to popularize classical music and make it my students' profession or lifelong hobby
Terana is just outstanding and she is the Master artist. She is elegant and talented and so patient with her students. When I first started learning piano, I kept complaining that my hands hurt so much, up to my elbows. A simple trick and advice telling me to straighten up, and stand straight ( and she moved me around showing me how to stand properly), made a huge difference. Those who are tought by Terana are truly fortunate. I highly recommend Terana to everyone.
Tarana is a wonderful musician, therefore an excellent teacher. Highly recommended...
Tarana has been brilliant with my daughter Jade who really looks forward to her lessons. Thank You!
I am a retiree and learning piano was on my bucket list. Really appreciated Tarana's paitience and professionalism. Can't believe how much I have learnt is the last minth
Introduction, testing skills depending on the level of students: clapping, marching, echoing short melodies, recognising major (happy) or minor (sad) tones, recognising changes in music, singing a song of their choice for beginners and sight-reading, playing scales, a piece of their choice, recognising meter, pitch for students who have some experience. Test is designed to help me to determine level of student and methods of teaching him and students don't need to get prepared for it. Every student is individual and I dont use the same method for all.
I hold B.A. and Master of Music in Solo, Collaborative Piano and Teaching. I also have MBA degree.
I started teaching when I was a 18 year old student in Music College and my student, who was my sister had to play for my Practical Piano class so I got credits. My sister passed with distinction, didn't become a pianist but became a wonderful soprano later.
Any kind of students and any kind of parents.
My students have a class recital twice a year and it is always a big event for me, them, their families and friends. Besides I am a pianist of Duo "La Note Bleue" and we are often performing in universities and colleges.
Studying piano requires a diligent hard work and will bring a big enjoyment when you see results of your hard work. Start lessons if you think you are a hard working person and you want to benefit from your teacher's knowledge. Find an easier activity which doesn't need any training if you think you are not the one. Wait, tell me if you find anything:)
I encourage my students ask me anything they want to know or don't understand about music or the piece they are playing. They don't need to get prepared for questions
