Teaching Piano

Piano lessons are full of possibility and excitement for me and students.
Teaching is one of my passion beside performance. 
Here’s some of my students videos I wrote/post, and that I share with my instructors.
Hopefully it will help you to know about piano.

Begginer young kid sudent playing

Classic Begginer student Mila, 6 years old

She has been studying with me already 9month! She has hard time to play with both hands same time. but she finally over that point. Sometimes some kids always look their fingers to find the keys. When its time, i teach to not look at the keyboard and feel the interval.

Begginer young kid sudent playing - Lolly

Classic Begginer student Sarha, 8 years old

When i saw her first time, She already had lessons 2 years with other teacher. It's pity to say truth kid's parents that your kid can't read music. But some of them yes. Because some teacher just put Alphabets or finger numbers on the music note.  So they can cheat. Sarha was the one of example. i tried very hard to keep to start begging. Also difficulty is any kids (even Adult)  don't want to start from the begging again. Teacher need parents help that time. I sometimes force to teach them. We were fighting(?), crying, pissed of each other. but also happy, fun, laugh. All kind of emotions all came throw, kids student and me are become best friend.  Sarha made finally how to read that time.
