I have worked as a volunteer assistant at the Animate Summer Performance Project organised by Trinity Laban for young musicians, including a performance at Southbank.Teaching assistant in the Animate Orchestra for 20 young musicians of various ages and instruments, curatedby Trinity Laban and Jason Rowland, including a performance at Southbank, London. I was heavily involved in the two-week preparation stage of the project. Apart from helping helping the piano students prepare their parts and develop their skills, I was also responsible for their overall involvement in the group. Practising
judgement, energy, patience, creativity, responsibility, leadership, reliability and enthusiasm were all
essential in helping the orchestra achieve their goals.
I also worked as a teaching assistant in the Young Musician’s Summer School 2019 by Trinity Laban, and taught music theory group classes. My role included helping students solve any difficulty or question they had regarding the preparation of our project (music performance), helping them to learn the music, rhythm on their instruments and coaching them on how to contribute as part of an ensemble not just as an individual. I had to engage them in the group and make them feel confident in their skills by fully evolving myself in the ensemble, showing them, we are all one when it comes to collaboration and support.
I have been teaching privately for the past 5 years, including giving piano and theory lessons.
I always encourage my students to practice no matter if they are learning for hobby or for possible future studies.
I always adjust my lessons to the needs of the student. I teach grades when students when to give their exams. I also encourage the Suzuki method as I believe it has a wide range of knowledge and repertoire and builds a strong musicianship. If the level of some students is higher and they are interested in studying music, I will try teach more like a conservatoire method, using piano repertoire only, studies if need to, to help the student build up her/his pianistic and musical skills at the best.
I always try to give feedback to my students about their work within a specific period and also I often ask them their opinion on a new suggestion of a piece or idea I might have. Mainly I do that to understand what each student needs and wants to learn and accordingly make my plan of the lessons. When I see a student is more independent, musically, I give them choices between pieces and give them tasks to decide on their own. In my teaching methods I include online tutoring. I started teaching online when I moved outside London and kept some of my teaching. It is a very different approach but a very fun one too. Especially at these times we are right now, I find significant to keep sharing our knowledge with young children. It is important to keep inspiring people and especially young kids with music. That way we encourage each other that life will soon get better and the situation shouldn't let affect our lives.
I teach online, or in person at my studio in my flat or at the student's house.
