Diligent, upbeat early childhood educator giving children a headstart in their musical piano-playing journey. Motivated to help anyone looking to extend their skills and abilities.

Methodology

I base my classes on the student's learning goals and interest level. With younger children and beginners, I aim to provide a solid framework for flourishing in piano playing and note-reading, namely in piano playing technique. With older and more seasoned learners, I will adjust my teaching according to the needs of the individual, and provide resources, tips, and materials to support their learning progression. I welcome interest-led learners as well; if you're just wanting short-term help on a specific piece of music or a couple of songs, I will be most happy to help you as well.

A typical lesson with me begins with warming up, specific song playing, followed by theory (optional- according to the learner's goals and interests). For younger learners and children, I also cover aural training which is integral to successful music learning. My technique is guided my the internationally recognised Royal Schools of Music Board in London (ABRSM).

Background

I am an early childhood educator working as a relief in various settings.

On the side, I am passionate about teaching children music, and also supporting them to achieve within this subject. In schools, I have implemented a variety of strategies to engage children of different ages to engage in music learning and appreciation, and will apply these to tutoring contexts.
> I am experienced working with children, and adapting to their personalities and needs.
> I endeavour to make music learning a positive and fun experience through fun methodologies, hands-on learning, and positive reward structures.
> Having completed ABRSM Practical Grade 8 and Theory training, I am skilled and well-versed with technical piano, and piano skill assets for continuous and progressive improvement. I am also currently considering extending my skills through a Diploma in Piano teaching.

Due to my professional career, I have been limited in my ability to tutor private piano in the last few years; having offered lessons to two 5-year-old children. I am now looking to tutor more in piano- which I love and enjoy, and welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to come and seek my teaching help.
