Edmund's Piano Lessons (Classical ABRSM Exams) or (Music Appreciation For Leisure)
Date Listed 09/04/2018
My name is Edmund and I have been teaching since 2008 in schools such as Cristofori/Play By Ear Music School and Ezoo School Of Music & Fine Arts. ABRSM EXAM SYLLABUS Goal Oriented Teaching Most students barely improve even though they practice because they practice blindly without a goal in mind. When preparing my students for exams, I will set weekly goals for them to achieve so that their practice sessions will be effective and efficient. Most teachers suggest the number of times and length of practice sessions. For me, I set the goal for the student, I will leave it to you how long you want to practice, but I expect the goal I set to be reached and presented to me. This is only for students taking exams. Updated Knowlege of ABRSM Exam SyllabusMusic Critiquing Listening to Youtube and Professional musicians' performances and critiquing them in order to gain awareness of different styles of presenting a song, thus developing a critical ear for music and performance. Playing Music. Not notes. When I teach, I ask lots of questions to my students to get them thinking like a musician. I ask them about the title of the song and how to interpret it, images that come to mind when I play a section of the music, and emphasise on playing with expression and colour. Playing the correct notes is never a priority for me. Most people play notes, but not music. With me as your guide, you will be able to engage your emotions, play more expressively and present a better performance to your audience. Music Appreciation and New Age For Leisure Students who prefer to enjoy learning music without the stress of having to do exams will fall under the Music Appreciation category. I have students age 5 all the way to 70 and I am a very patient teacher with a sense of humour so you'll definitely have fun during my lessons. In addition to learning your favourite songs, you will be exposed to Romantic New Age music artists like Yiruma/Kevin Kern/Yuriko Nakamura/Jang Sei Yong and various movie soundtracks.
