Donovan Piano Wizard Academy
Are your children’s piano teachers not being able to establish good learning rapport with your children? Do your children lack motivation and words of encouragement from the teachers? Did your children start off the piano lessons well with enthusiasm but this did not last long? Or are your children constantly having difficulty in getting into the practice routine?
Each child is unique and you will need to get a teacher that is HIGHLY EXPERIENCED, DEDICATED, PATIENT, ENERGY DRIVEN, FRIENDLY YET FIRMED AND WELL QUALIFIED; and someone who can understand the unique learning situations of your children and tailor to the specific needs of your children’s learning styles. This particular teacher must share and celebrate the joy of students’ progress and success with them, no matter how minute the progress/success is; and despite all of the normal cycles of ups and downs in the journey of learning the instrument.
Getting the right teacher is absolutely the most important consideration when it comes to learning an instrument. The right teacher will INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, ENCOURAGE, GUIDE, PRAISE, GROW & CELEBRATE with your children.
My philosophy of music teaching is to let children grow up happily with music, to have an inquisitive mind for music learning & making and appreciation in their lifelong learning. I hope to see that they treat music as their lifelong companions.
For Adult/Matured Learners:
Did you stop learning the piano during your secondary/college days (due to the fact of concentrating on school work & activities/exams); and wish to pick up the piano again now for leisure, self-enrichment or qualification purposes? Or you have been learning classical piano all these while in the past and wish to pick up a new skill i. e. pop/jazz piano now?
From the two signs mentioned above, these show that your passion for the piano is still flaming high today; of which is absolutely a good sign. As a matured student, you may continue your past passion i. e. picking up piano lessons again to fulfill your missed learning in the past, of which you will not regret further in your later life. Or you may want to pick up a new skill i. e. pop/jazz piano now to expand your music horizon!
