Lessons at your home or mine.
I have a current Working With Children Check to show u and can show u my drivers licence until I get my police check updated.
I have taught in three schools and approved by the Victorian Institute of Teaching, VIT.
Referees/References available from happy students parents, past and present.
30min lesson/$30 per lesson. You save by not paying GST. This fee includes a discount on the recommended minimum fee by VMTA ($70/hr). You don't need to pay per term upfront so you don't lose money on missed lessons.
I teach students to read music.
I ask students with previous piano teachers what their experiences were - positive and negative. Students with previous teachers told me the teacher did not teach the student to read, so when the student got home to practise the student couldn't work out how to read the notes and didn't know where to put their fingers on the piano keys. So those students were unable to practise all wk. Then their previous teachers were angry, smacked hands and called them "stupid".
I do not smack or yell or call u "stupid".
I'm patient, helpful and ask questions. If a student doesn't understand it's my job to teach it a different way until u understand. I don't "spoon feed" treating u like a "dumb baby", I ask questions.
I give helpful verbal and written feedback, encouragement, support and explain weekly homework practise.
I try to be the nicest teacher students ever had, while maintaining strict, high quality standards. Student's laugh and have fun, feeling a sense of achievement. Students and parents know there is constant progress. I am patient, friendly, kind, encouraging and believe in your abilities. I help u to improve your weakness or correct bad habits. so students feel better in themselves they improved so much in 5min conquering something.
Students achieved up to A+ in exams (Aust Music Exam Board, Uni of Melb). I teach correct techniques, not bad habits. I'm thorough.
I can also give advice re. buying a digital piano or piano.
I can give advice re. your current keyboard or piano regarding if and when u need to upgrade.
I go the extra mile e.g. Students and parents know I sincerely enjoy this and they know it is not just about money for me. Other students and parents attending piano exams said they were impressed I seemed to be the only piano teacher that attended the examination studio.
I will respond promptly to any messages online or ph.
Thank you :)
