Our lessons are not only about learning piano. We would like to assist kids to understand the importance of daily practices and feeling ongoing satisfaction at having achieved their musical skills that encourages learning throughout their lifetime. Music is conceptually linked with numeracy as well as literacy, and the skills that they will experience in our lessons give a strong framework that be applied to any other subjects.
As teachers, we believe in developing confidence and encouraging each student’s potential throughout our lessons. Maintaining a positive approach and resilience is important when learning new techniques. We take into consideration that students might need to take their time or have a break for a while and encourage their natural interests, developing their abilities by letting them do what they need to do rather than pushing them to follow a strict order. We do so because we believe in sharing learning as an ongoing process with students, who better process and improve their skills technically and mentally when encouraged to own their learning. If students are trusted by teachers, they won’t hesitate to challenge new things and learn from their mistakes. This is the most effective means of improving their skills.
