I'm a passionate, patient and motivated instructor who loves working with students both to share the love of music while playing and performing, then to student that want to advance musically and technically on their instuments. I started learning Piano at the age of 4 and excelled as my Piano grades went higher. I attained a scholarship on Merit at the Kampala music school and also was able to certify through ABRSM. I also was taught by Clare Hawkes (BMUS (Hons) ATCL, FRSCM on clarinet . Since Nov 2011 to present I've been teaching both in homes and at Kampala music school and presenting student to certify for there graded Piano and clarinet playing through ABRSM.
Through out the years of both learning, playing and up to present doing more teaching and classes i've realized the need to practice ones instrument. I also figured that practice just after a class means a lot as you tend to remember a lot that you talked about in a class session! We are all different when it comes to learning and material intake, so as a teacher loving and being patient with my students has always proven to bring out the best from students on their instruments. Also perfoming one's pieces to an audience helps!
My method when teaching students that are starters (kids) i used books like teaching little fingers to play piano and john Thompson which introduce learning of notes, their instrument, posture, and rhythm. Most of these books are in sets and will take the student to an advanced bigger player! From here I incorporate a method of learning at least 3-4 pieces ( A piece that has mostly a melodic line, a piece that concerns more of rhythmic exercises and then to a last piece which is a study) i will also top it up with scales and arpeggios and also a sense of knowing your instrument overall, listening , Aural and also incorporate sight reading . I will break this down to make sure my students are whole musically, can play and understand a piece of music .
At the begining of a lesson I encourage to start by listening and running through the scales and pieces that we last worked on. Make sure they are all well learnt. Before moving on to more scales and next pieces in the selected order at the beginning of class. Aurals are a great way for me to play to my student as they learn more about the selected piece, learn rhythm and also interpreting their selected pieces. In the session of sight reading, i encourage playing many pieces of music just once, and learning more notes and rhythm to increase their speed in playing a piece for the first time.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
