Information About Sebastian - Aberdeen teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Sebastian:
I am a second year medical student looking to start teaching Piano to beginner's. I have been playing Piano for over 10 years and have recently achieved Grade 8 Piano with Distinction. I have also recently won a Bach performance class at the Music festival. I also play the Saxophone at a Grade 8 level and I'm proficient with Music Theory. With Piano I've enrolled in a Piano performance course alongside my medical studies at Aberdeen University, and I have started preparing for my first diploma.
Taught a beginner student for a year in 6th year. I was taking over from another teacher so he knew some of the basics but while I taught him he learnt new pieces at a Grade 1 level, more music theory and we started looking at scales and chords. As I get more experienced teaching, teaching higher level pianists will become a possibility.
Over the years, I've been learning Piano, I've developed a real passion for the instrument and an interest in a range of styles of Music. Furthermore, I've become more disciplined and focused on paying proper attention to detail in order to refine my playing. As a teacher I'd love to foster the development of these same skills and passions. During lessons, the necessary theory would be taught, along with scales and pieces. I also think it's important to start listening to a range of different styles and composers and be inspired by listening to those so I would recommend a new piece a week to listen to. When the pupil has reached a level where they can sit a grade, if they want to, we could start preparing for the grade in a way that doesn't detract from the enjoyment that comes with music.
