METHODS USED
We will be deciding materials and methods after discussing the goal of each students. I will be using the Suzuki methods for beginner level students and various solo repertoire for advanced levels. According to the repertoire choice of the student, I will be incorporating etudes and fundamental exercise books in order to help improving technical issues that relate to the repertoire. Non-classical music will be also included and guided with sheet music if students desire to learn specific popular tune.
LESSON STYLE
Communication based and goal oriented lessons will be conducted according to students' need and purpose of learning the instrument. We will make sure to have shared goals for each lesson. The most important thing is that students have the agency in the lesson. My guidance will boost creativity and musical inspiration of students. The focus will be put on finding students' own musical identity and ways of telling their story. Students will feel excited and confident to play their instrument and be satisfied with how much more capable they become with storytelling through music.
