Overview:
My main motivation in pursuing a doctoral degree in music is my enthusiasm for gaining knowledge and teaching. The dedication and generosity of teachers who I had the privilege to study with were not only inspiring to me, but also made me understand fundamental concepts of teaching. I strongly believe education can change lives and communities. Teaching with enthusiasm is fascinating, engaging, and a key factor to inspire students. I also believe that the ideology behind that kind of teaching is to create a quest for knowledge that never ends and will result in a consistent development for the student as a musician and as a person. Although encouraging students to experience and develop critical thinking is a complex challenge, it is still possible and essential. During guitar ensemble classes, the connection between a basic theoretical foundation and classical guitar technique is required in order to shape the understanding of playing a nylon string guitar with proper form. Therefore, flexibility is necessary for a teacher who is dealing with individual students or ensembles. In other words, teachers must adapt to given conditions and unpredictable situations. In fact, I have acquired many different experiences and results by teaching people from different backgrounds.
EXPERIENCE
I am a musician who has already studied in three conservatories and four universities. I have been teaching private lessons for fifteen years and group classes for ten years. I graduated with a Doctor of Musical Arts (D.M.A) in may 2017. From 2013 to 2017, I was teaching theory, group guitar class, private lessons and guitar ensemble at UNLV. According to my experience as a teacher, flexibility and adaptation are two necessary skills in lessons/classes. In fact, I have acquired several experiences and results by teaching people from different backgrounds and I strongly believe education can change lives and communities.
METHODS USED
For beginning and intermediate guitar students, I typically use Hal Leonard's Guitar Method Complete Edition by Will Schmid and Greg Koch. This book will cover technique, music notation, theory, repertoire, fingerboard knowledge and music fundamentals. It works for children and adults. For beginning students who are learning classical guitar, I use the Aaron Shearer's method which includes detailed lessons on theory, form, fingering, technique, sight-reading, and etc. Nevertheless, I usually use many other books for guitar lessons since I always take into consideration the needs and goals of my students. Furthermore, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire (from the guitar literature) appropriate for their level.
LESSON STYLE
Teaching is a major component of my musical life. I enjoy teaching students, rejoice at their progress, and am always on the lookout for new pedagogical approaches. Therefore, a teacher must have energy and enthusiasm to build rapport with students. My approach to teaching balances personal understanding of the student’s needs and goals, a strict approach to technique, and an artistic approach to music-making. As a teacher, I encourage students to search for creative solutions and artistic principles that are relevant to their musicianship.
