About Piano Learning 學琴之道 II

[anti-rclick]May 19, 2011

I love piano. I love music.

I love playing the piano and listening to music. I also love teaching piano and music to others.

I love classical music, world music and even some (non-local) pop and jazz music.

All of the above do not mean that I want my students to be musicians/piano teachers like me.

If any of my students ever want to study music and become professional musicians, that is great. I would do all my best to help them. But that is not why I want to teach piano.

I want to teach my students piano because I want them to be educated with music and piano, so that they can enjoy music from playing and listening, and appreciate great music for their lifetime.

With this music education, my students can be trained to have better manner, interpretation skills, independent thinking, and cultivate creativity as well as innovation. All these means will be preparing my students to become better persons who will play to their strengths, to see clearer, look further, and walk farther than others. I hope for children in particular, will become people of achievements, contribute to the society, bring to their own and others’ lives more colors, and to the world more positive energy and originality.

我喜歡彈鋼琴。我熱愛音樂。

我喜歡彈鋼琴和聽音樂。我也愛教鋼琴和音樂給別人。

我喜歡古典音樂,世界音樂,甚至一些(非本地)流行音樂和爵士樂。

上述所有並不意味著我希望我的學生像我一樣成為音樂人 / 鋼琴老師。

如果我的學生當中有任何人希望學習音樂,成為專業音樂人,我將盡我所能去幫助他們。但這不是我為什麼要教鋼琴。

我教學生鋼琴,是因為我想讓他們接受音樂和鋼琴的教育,使他們能夠在人生中欣賞美妙的音樂,從演奏和耹聽中享受音樂,把音樂成為他們生命的一部份。

在學習鋼琴當中所學到的,我希望學生可以學以致用,放到生活的其他層面,正面解決問題、克服困難,勇於面對挫折和逆境。

有着這個音樂教育,我的學生可以培養更好的修養,分析能力,獨立思考,創造力以及原創性。運用這些技能,學生能在自己的領域中發揮所長,比別人看清多一點、比別人眼界再要廣闊一點、比別人再要走前一點。尤其是小孩子們,將來可以成為有作為的人,為自己和別人的生命帶來色彩,對社會作出貢獻,給世界帶來多一點正面的能量和創新的元素。
