Overview:
My love for music began when I first started taking piano lessons at the age of seven. I developed a strong interest in making music and played the trumpet and piano throughout my school years, performing with the symphonic, graduation, and jazz bands. I studied music performance and technology at the American University in Cairo, Egypt, where I took advanced lessons in the piano and trumpet as well as learned recording and production techniques. I performed with several bands in my undergraduate years and have graduated with a BA in music technology and a stronger passion for helping others discover and develop the gift of music.
EXPERIENCE
My first experience of teaching was about seven years ago, when I volunteered my services as a piano teacher to victims of a massive earthquake in Cairo, Egypt. I loved helping the students access the world of music and seeing their interest and skills develop over time. Post graduation, I decided to pursue my interests in music further and have been teaching music at a school for the past two years. I have recently relocated to New York so I am looking to help people here reach their highest potential and to discover how enriching and fulfilling music can be to one's life.
METHODS USED
For beginners, I like to start with the fundamentals of how to read music and how to apply it to their instrument. This can be done through various exercises and and practice workbooks. I would then develop a repertoire by working with the student to see what pieces they would like to play. I strongly believe that having a goal in mind is essential to maintaining motivation and interest, so we would work together with the goal of having the student perform their repertoire at a recital. Having them share the pieces they worked on gives them a sense of achievement and is a great way to see how far they've progressed.
LESSON STYLE
I love watching my students grow and see them taking pride in their accomplishments. I believe that passion is the key to continual learning. I make sure the student is enjoying the lessons by allowing each student to go at their own pace and by setting small goals to achieve during each session. Doing this allows the student to objectively see their progress and as a result gives them more motivation to set higher goals for themselves and to be the best musician they can be. Keeping the lessons fun is also a priority, because as a piano student I used to get bored of the repetitive nature music lessons can have. I therefore try to keep each lesson interesting by changing up the warm-up exercises and making sure that the student is enjoying the piece they are learning.
