My Teaching Philosophy

I aim to inspire and encourage the student to think deeply about the music and what every piece you play means to them personally. Therefore this comes to my method in teaching music interpretation. The student should clearly understand the music, build a clear idea of interpretation and make solid decisions when learning a piece. I spend lots of time explaining the reasons for making these musical decision and figuring out the composer intentions, i.e. what is behind the notes on the page. 

 

Playing music is also a matter of problem solving, especially dealing with technical difficulties. Therefore I see practice not as a routine but an experiment or a chance for problem solving, which becomes my method in teaching mastery of technical skills.

 

Both aspects of musical interpretation and technical mastery can come together to make the most complete performance one can hope for.
