To parents and students: ?I aim to give students as much as possible an overall education on music. Learning piano is only an approach towards the understanding of music, and it is the appreciation of music which is important to us. My approach towards piano teaching is so that students understand how to play piano pieces of different styles rather than just knowing how to play one particular piece. I try to make my lessons as fun as possible, and seek to take aim at what each individual student needs. If you are thinking of learning to play piano, make sure that you will practice minimum thirty minutes every day. If you cannot devote time to practice on piano daily, then it is useless to spend on buying the piano and books or learn to play piano. You may find that the initial process of learning to play piano is quite difficult. You will, therefore, need to do lot of efforts for first few weeks.
Have you also explored other ways to learn what it is you need to fill in the gaps in your knowledge and proficiency for what you want to do?Individual classes, summer programs, studying with a composer may all be worth considering before trying to dive into a master’s degree, in view of your prior training and number of years away from school.
