Piano Teacher Singapore – Before You Start Looking
It is not an easy job to be a piano teacher. It is one of the most complex professions there is – but, it is also one of the most satisfying. Looking for a piano teacher in Singapore is not going to be difficult, but it will be a challenge.
You see, a piano teacher in Singapore can always play the piano – anyone can do that. When you have the skills and talent to give, you can be a piano teacher. Some people may even be great players. That doesn’t mean they can be a teacher to others.
Not everyone has the skill and talent to teach. It is important to remember that being a teacher would mean sharing your knowledge with others, and them learning from you. Being an effective piano teacher in Singapore would also require hard work and determination – and only a few people actually master this.
Finding the right piano teacher in Singapore will be a challenge. Worry not, because there are always those who are unique and stand out.
The Qualities of a Great Piano Teacher in Singapore
Patient. Piano teachers are patient. They know that no one can go from 0 to 100 real quick. No one is made that way, even a piano prodigy. So, they have to be patient in teaching, especially with kids who will be playing for the first time. Or, adults who have a hard time warming up their hands and fingers.
Skilful and talented. No one can teach if there’s nothing to teach. A piano teacher in Singapore needs to know everything from the basics to the mastering part of the piano – or, at least, almost mastering the piano. They need the talent and skills of playing the piano to help their students tackle techniques and strategies in playing.
Without the skills and talent of playing the piano, the product of the lessons won’t be as great as expected. This is because the students will lack certain twists and specialities in playing the piano.
Competitive. When someone sees potential, they see and dream for the potential they see. They will always try their best to help someone reach that level of talent, skill and capability. That is why this would be a good quality to find in a teacher. They would do anything in their power to help your child reach their potential.
Passionate. When it comes to the piano or music in general, it is important to know where a person draws their inspiration and motivation. Or else, the beauty of playing runs out. This is why it is important to have a piano teacher play their music with passion and emotions – because that is what makes them a rare gem with a distinct sound and rhythm.
Goal-setter. A piano teacher cannot be a piano teacher if they stop learning. It is important for teachers to also set goals, and continue learning despite their “mastery” of music and their desired focus.
Fun. Being respected and professional is a must, especially in a teacher-student setting. But, for the younger students, it is important to keep the fun and enjoyment of learning. This is to replenish the inspiration and motivation of the students in learning and mastering the art.
