    Patience and being understanding are probably my best qualities for being a teacher. That's not just what I think but a number of my pupils and pupils' parents have told me so. A sense of humour in the right situations can also be productive. Lots of people are good musicians but not all of them have the patience to teach people who struggle with the subject. I know from personal experience from when I was a child that the more someone shouts at a person who is trying hard but finding something difficult, the harder it becomes for that person to do well. That doesn't meant that I will be too soft with anyone messing about but am understanding towards those who are keen but not naturaly gifted in music.

    Andrew Clarke Classical Piano Teacher (Birmingham) Picture When practicing you sometimes come to a difficult section which slows you down or stops you. Instead of starting from the beginning of the piece again, take the difficult section and play it slowly 3 times without making a mistake. Should you make a mistake during any of the 3 times then start...
  • The importance of aural training and music theory

    Lin Qiu Classical Piano Teacher (South East London) Picture Although aural training and music theory seems quite abstract and complicated, there has to be a reason why every music student needs to be exposed to these two components of the discipline. First of all, we should discuss the definition and value of each of them. Here is a description by Frede...

  • Mental Training to Overcome Stage Fright

    Andrada Brisc Classical Piano Teacher (West London) Picture Stage fright is very common from beginners to professional pianists. Just mastering the technical side of the repertoire doesn't make us ready to go onto the stage and perform, though many beginners think so. There is another aspect which tends to be neglected: the psychological one. The...
