As a well experienced piano teacher, I offer lessons and tutoring sessions for beginner level students, both children and adults.
My piano lessons always include both practice and musical theory, as it helps the students appreciate the ‘why’ as well as understand the ‘what’ and ‘how’. As a parent, you’re highly encouraged to invest some time (as little as 10 minutes a day) when your child is practising, since supervision always helps them achieve the best results from each lesson. I was trained in classical music myself, and I believe strongly in the importance of laying a solid foundation and building up proper techniques with my students.
Apart from lessons, I’m also available for tuitions, which are essentially practice sessions carried out in between music lessons. The purpose of tuitions is that the student receives timely feedback and further instructions on their progress. It’s a great opportunity to rectify errors / mistakes so that no incorrect technique gets the chance to become a bad habit. There’s no new homework, instead we spend the time on practice and improvement of skills.
Various session lengths available (20 minutes for younger children, and 30-60 minutes for those with longer attention spans). Home visits may be available for 45 minute or longer lessons, shorter sessions are to be conducted at my studio in Carlton.
If interested, please contact me for more details and availability.
