Note: The views expressed in this post are strictly mine alone.
Qualifications: Qualifications matter, of course. But in reality, very few people ask about what qualifications I possess. Instead, they are more concerned about how much I charge. For the record, I have the LTCL and FTCL diplomas from Trinity College London. I also have a Bachelor of Music (High Distinction) from the University of Arizona, USA.
Experience: I have saved the most important for last. Experience is something that can’t be bought, and no one can rush to acquire it. It has to be accumulated through the passage of time; there isn’t any other way. To that end, I’ve been teaching piano for over 35 years now, and I have certainly learnt a lot along the way. I do have a lot of teaching experiences to tell, perhaps in a later post. Suffice to say, I customize my teaching methods to accommodate each and every student. Why? Because every student is different and a good and experienced teacher would treat them as such.
I’ll end this post by encouraging you to read through the testimonials that some of my former students have graciously written for me. It warms me up that I have been able to instill the love of music in them and countless others.
I look forward to welcoming you to The Good Pianist soon!
