Graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, Music Performance and Composition with a minor in Computer Science at CSUSB. I studied under Dr. Jocelyn Chang from 2012 to 2014, Dr. Wen-ting Huang from 2014-2018. I am now currently practicing my craft further for a future graduate studies. Otherwise, I am teaching students throughout my city.
Hello, my name is Fang. I studied piano as my major for Undergraduate studies and have since finished my studies as of June, 2018. I am looking forward to teaching beginners or intermediate in classical training. I want to teach an all-around encompassing a strong foundation for the piano. This includes playing the piano, techniques, hand coordination, ear training, improvising, beginner theory, notation reading, and anything else that interests my students. All in all, it's about having fun and learning to have fun with the Piano.
My teaching experience started back in my last few years of college. I was always hands on with learning the tricks and tips about playing the piano. I involved myself with my peers. I helped them with practicing and figuring out techniques. To my peers, I gave constructive feedback for techniques, harmony, play style, musical sense, and anything related. This helped me realize teaching others was fun and enjoyable. Therefore I started teaching. Although I work in a slow step manner, the results of a consistent schedule and practice makes it all worthwhile. The rewards from teaching is what I look forward to.
For beginning students, I start off with using Faber's set of collections and five finger positions. I keep the beginners on a regime of learning five finger position songs to build confidence and the ability to grasp the fundamentals. I teach simple techniques along with their five finger position songs such as scales and arpeggio. Once they have progressed to a certain degree, I begin to introduce more variety and the ability to read further than five finger position. As for the higher levels, I have to explore their interests and guide them accordingly to their goals. This includes repertoire, techniques, music theory, music history, and anything related. This will allow me to assess the student's goal and lesson plans.
The best reward is for my students to have fun learning. I always try my best and adapt to my student's learning ability. Every student I have taught was different at grasping the fundamentals. Therefore, it is important for the students to progress at their own pace. I encourage and motivate them with showcasing my ability. Setting goals that are realistic to reach within their abilities. Complimenting the student's success in scales, sight-reading, solo song, and practice. I am always learning their interests first, because it helps to lay out what the students will enjoy learning.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
