Hello everyone! My name is Natalia K., and I am a music teacher in Louisville, Kentucky. Originally, I came from Minsk, Belarus where I've been teaching for over ten years. Furthermore, I've been teaching in the United States for over five years and have a great understanding of American music theory. In my classes, you'll experience a challenging way of learning as I try to prepare my students to the best of my abilities. I often assign homework to my students for further material comprehension. I love my students, and I can't wait to work with each and every one of you.
My teaching experience dates back to my days at the Belarusian State University of Culture and Arts where I was teaching teenage students piano. As I continued teaching private lessons at home, I've gained a lot of knowledge about the techniques that work best for my students. Throughout more than ten years of teaching, I've noticed the passion and drive that my student has when they start learning their instrument. Their desire to learn more about playing the piano has fueled me to work harder every day as I continue to gain students throughout my years of teaching the piano.
For beginning students, who are starting from an early age, I typically combine playtime and learning. For example, for the youngest students, I use the analogy of the seven colors of the rainbow to learn the music notes. Throughout my years of teaching using this technique, I've received a lot of positive feedback from the students that as learning kept them interested and excited about learning the instrument. For my teenage students, I ask them about any music that they'd like to play in the future as it keeps them engaged in learning. Overall, my teaching style is individual to every student. And, I'd like to share my knowledge with the students in the most engaging way possible.
Nothing makes me feel better than seeing my students enjoy their time with the instrument! Therefore, I feel that it's necessary to fit my teaching style to the student's desire. I start the first lesson by asking them about the music that they listen to to get a sense of their music style. Furthermore, I am interested in the student's goals for their lessons. After asking these important question, I can contruct a personalized lesson plan based on the student's wants and needs. I believe that the student should be in charge of some parts of the lesson, and I should be a guide to their future goals with the instrument.
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
