Teaching in Piano
Angelina has been teaching privately for the past 5 years, including giving piano and theory lessons. She always encourages my students to practice, whether they are learning for hobby or for possible future studies. Angelina adjusts her lessons to the needs of the student, and she offers grades for those who wish to take them.
Angelina generally teaches using the Suzuki method - she believes it has a wide range of knowledge and pieces, and builds strong musicianship for the student. For students who have played before, Angelina will teach a more advanced method to help the student build up their playing and musical skills.
Angelina gives feedback to her students about their work within a specific period and will ask them their opinion on a new suggestion of a piece or idea she might have. This helps Angelina understand what each student needs and wants to learn, so she can plan her lessons accordingly. Where a student is more independent, musically, Angelina will give them choices between pieces and give them tasks to choose from.
Angelina teaches almost all genres, but specialises in classical music.
In the first lesson, Angelina will chat a few minutes with the student in order to make them feel more comfortable, especially the ones are that are very young. Angelina will ask them why they like music and why they chose this instrument. Then Angelina will find out if they have any favourite pieces, and she'll start the lesson from there to keep the student engaged and interested from the very beginning. Some students ask Angelina to play something for them so they can familiarise themselves with the instrument, especially if the student is very young.
A notebook with blank music staves (manuscript) might be helpful, but it’s not necessary to have from the first lesson. Bring your excitement for learning and playing music!
