[:zh]鋼琴學習的進程和空間[:]

[:zh]

很多時候覺得自己或自己的小孩子在鋼琴彈奏上進步不夠多、不過快、不夠好。
 
首先應該問一問自己,究竟自己或小孩子有沒有放足夠的時間和心機去練習呢?請不要將學琴年資與進度等同,因為很多人說自己或小孩子有「五年學琴經驗」或是有「五級資歷」,但是實際上五年當中究竟真正放了多少時間去練習和上課呢?那就要捫心自問了。
 
第二時,究竟是否自己太心急想要自己或小朋友在短時間進步太快太多呢?
 
彈琴和學音樂畢竟是需要時間去學習、醞釀、思考、感受、磨練、聆聽、發揮的。有時可能覺得其他人 (的小朋友) 進度比較快而開始懷疑自己或小朋友是否太慢呢?其實很多時候大家一定要有更多的耐心去等待進度出現,而同一時間放更多的心機和時間去令進步發生。真正的進度是一隻在醞釀中的就像種子萌芽一樣,它的成長一開始有大部份都是在泥土裏面,你看不見它的生長,但是你一定要不停的灌溉施肥,小心地去處理它的生長、用心打理,最終當它生長出來是定會成為美麗的幼苗的。而究竟之後你是否想一直去灌溉打理,令它生長更大更高更茂盛的話,那就是你的決定了。
 
成長中的幼苗會變成美麗的花朵嗎?
 
請給予自己和小孩子多一點時間、多一點空間。

[:en]Communication: An Essential for Success at the Piano[:]

[:en]I always welcome feedback from the parents of my students (and now of my teachers’ students as well), whether that be a concern or question about the lesson, progress, practice or exam issues.

Communication between teacher and parent is extremely important when it comes to guiding the student in the long run. Without an open and interactive channel, it would gradually dampen the interest, growth and success in the student’s music learning progress. I believe a lot of the times it is not that the student does not want to work hard and do well, it is mostly because s/he is not sure what to do and sometimes is afraid to ask, and slowly s/he loses interest in playing the piano and taking lessons. Regular and close monitoring over student’s attitude and behavior in lessons and practice helps both the teacher and parent understand how to assist the student more positively and effectively.

So, I sincerely encourage those who are new to teaching spend more time talking with the parents in order to understand where they are coming from, which will eventually lead to more effective and successful teaching with the students. And to those who are parents, do not hesitate to ask the teachers when you have any concern with your children’s lessons/practice/progress, the good teachers are very eager to understand your doubts and frustrations and are willing to help you, because they genuinely want to teach your children and want them to learn well and love music too.

Happy Friday!

我常常歡迎我學生的家長給予意見(現在是我校老師學生的家長也一樣),詢問有關上課、進度、練習和考試的問題。 教師和家長之間的溝通是非常重要的,當涉及到引導學生從長遠來看。如果沒有一個開放互動的渠道,它會逐漸衰減的利益,增長和成功的學生的音樂學習進度。我相信很多的時候是不是學生不想努力工作,做好的,這主要是因為他/她不知道該怎麼做,有時是不敢問,慢慢地他/她失去興趣在彈鋼琴和課程學習。定期和密切監測了學生的態度和行為中的經驗教訓和實踐可以幫助教師和家長了解如何更積極有效地幫助學生。 所以,我真誠地鼓勵那些誰是新的教學花更多的時間與家長交談,以了解他們來自哪裡,這將最終導致更有效的和成功的教學與學生的到來。而對於那些誰是家長,不要猶豫,問老師,當你與你的孩子的經驗教訓/做法/正在進行的任何關注,好老師都非常渴望了解你的疑惑和挫折,並願意幫助你,因為他們真的要教你的孩子,並希望他們學習好,愛音樂。 週三快樂!
