Learning an instrument not only “soothes the savage beast” but has tremendous effects in both brain and physical developments. It is evident that many researches has shown playing an instrument increase mathematical abilities, reading skills; enhance the memory capacity and coordination. Yes, playing music makes you smarter！
With so many benefits and much more in terms how music shapes an individual's character development, I think music education is essential in every child's life. I have taught students of all ages and cultural backgrounds for more than fifteen years. I care every child as unique individual, engaging every one of them with a personalized approach and various styles of classical music. My ultimate goal in teaching is to help student gain necessary knowledge and skills to become active participants in their own learning. This is why I constantly asking my students questions and encourages critical and creative thinking. I also incorporate music theory and history in my teaching to help students understand a piece from various perspectives.
