Rapport Building
Commitment is crucial in music learning, it cant be happened over night, by putting an effort in a correct way will make the learning effective and efficient. Every month, I will give a feedback on how the student doing and how they improve.
Keeping Up with Curriculum
As I am used to ABRSM syllabus, I update myself with the teacher guide book from ABRSM, or attend a workshop for music teaching. I went to several concerts as well to broaden up my musical experience.
As a Good Tutor
A good collaboration and chemistry between teacher and student are very important. As a teacher, one must understand the character of the student in order to keep them motivated in their piano lesson.
Secondly, quality of playing is very crucial. It is not only playing all the notes accurately, but with a proper hand position, touch and musical idea which brings out music.
Lastly, as a good tutor, one must know how to reward students' hard work. Reward them with a small present or even appraisal will make them motivated and love what they are doing!
