What does being a "Curious" Piano Teacher mean?
Being curious (of course!), being creative and always striving to improve.
What do each of those mean for my teaching and for my students?
Being curious means that I want to find out how things can be done in different, better and more exciting ways;
I am always eager to explore new music, new resources and different approaches leading to the best possible lessons for each of my individual students.
Being creative means developing exciting, inspiring, innovative, fun, rewarding, challenging but achievable lesson activities for
lessons that are tailor-made for each and every pupil.
Always striving to improve means that I am always learning so I can empathise with my students' learning journeys.
I'm always moving with the times so I'm always ready to "teach the students of today ready for the world of tomorrow".
"He who dares to teach must never cease to learn."
John Cotton Dana, 1912.
