Teaching Philosophy

My Primary Goals

• I teach students how to learn.

• I match my teaching to the student's learning style (and not the other way round).

• I motivate my students by empowering them and introducing possibilities.


My Interaction with Students

• I will never be angry if you make a mistake.

• I will never be angry if you ask a question.

• I will only be upset if you do not try. If you do not try, I cannot teach you.

• If you do not understand, it is my fault, not yours.


My Foundations

• Piano lessons should be fun.

• Trying is often more important than succeeding.

• Piano study is not always going to be easy, but it should be satisfying.

• Exploration and creativity is encouraged.
