Miss Ginny’s Theory of Teaching

Beginner to Advanced Lessons Available
1. I have developed a sophisticated teaching framework incorporating a scientific approach to book and music selections. Choosing appropriately for different age groups and levels.

2. Create a teaching plan for each individual student, detailing the anticipated learning time for each piece and the amount of work to be completed each year.

3. Taking examinations is recommended (but not compulsory). Preparation for tests should not distract from learning new skills or progressing, therefore it is important to limit time taken to complete the test (e.g. maximum three months of preparation)
4. Examinations only evaluate progress and provide an additional source of motivation for learning. Examinations do not conflict with cultivating student interest, because good students are not afraid of examinations.

5. Parents are expected to attend classes and help at home. Learning piano requires the effort of three parties, none of whom are dispensable.

6. It is important to focus on basic skills, but boring training methods should be avoided.

7. Students need to read music and establish rhythm awareness by themselves (metronome must be used).
8. Performing music beautifully and emotively is the key to maintain student interest.

9. Basic theory of music is essential to master.

With regards to absolute beginners, it is important to ensure the student adopts an appropriate approach to learning from the very beginning. If the learning method is not appropriate, the student may ultimately learn a new skill, but hate the art, leading to a loss of motivation and disinterest. On the contrary, by taking a scientific approach to learning piano (including how to read music, play rhythm, and do finger exercises) student interest can be maintained, directly affecting students’ interest in playing piano.
