Successful Music Teaching Course

Category: Music Teaching and Teaching Studio Business Course

I want to help you build your music teaching studio.

When I set up my own music teaching studio, I also experienced a difficult period. It took a lot of effort to achieve that dream, but most importantly, it took me a long time to find a real direction to build a successful music teaching studio. After the solid establishment of my music teaching studio, it was very satisfying in many ways. I wish there were someone who could guide me and teach me how to do it, so I wouldn’t have wasted so much time searching for ways to build the studio I really wanted, so that I could focus on music and teaching.

I know that I can help you: the “How to Build a Successful Music Teaching Studio” course is designed to change the way you – and many teachers who are passionate about music and teaching- teach and shape a music teaching career that you have always wanted . I like to take away your frustration and struggle, so that you can focus on contributing your effort to our local music teaching community. We need the best teachers like you to teach the next generation of students.

Note: This only applies to private music teaching; if you want to start a bigger teaching business, please contact us directly for one-on-one business coaching courses.

You can now enroll in this course by subscribing our professional membership plan or on our online learning platform.

 

Trinity College London- Music Diploma Updates (Performance Diploma Syllabus)

News: Trinity College London- Music Diplomas (Performance Diploma Syllabus)

The new 2019 Trinity Performance Diplomas syllabus will be published on 18 October 2018.

The new syllabus features the majority of the pieces from the current 2009-2018 syllabus*, which means candidates can continue to prepare for their examination whichever date they choose. We have also added a wealth of new pieces that we know candidates will want to play and teachers want to teach. In addition the new syllabus features revised written programme requirements at ATCL and LTCL levels, and updated assessment criteria providing more detailed guidance on how exams are marked. Performance requirements, including own-choice options, will remain largely unchanged. Further details about syllabus changes will be released soon.

The 2009-2018 syllabus will be extended until 31 July 2019. The new syllabus will be used from 1 August 2019 onwards.

Please note that there will be no overlap between syllabuses, so all exams from 1 August 2019 onwards will follow the 2019 syllabus.

*A small number of existing pieces from the 2009-2018 syllabus are being removed.

 

[:zh]學彈琴是否一定要考試?[:]

[:zh]
很多人學鋼琴都有這個問題:究竟學彈琴是否一定要考鋼琴級別試呢?

其實,我覺得,你要首先分清楚兩件事。

第一,彈奏鋼琴對於你來說,究竟是為了興趣還是責任呢?

第二,如果沒有考試,你會否繼續學習和練習鋼琴呢?

很多人學彈鋼琴是為了滿足別人,就說是成人也有這樣的問題。

這是什麼意思呢?什麼是滿足別人呢?

有很多人覺得,小時候學習彈鋼琴,然後因為沒有繼續學習,大個了覺得很可惜。於是重拾鋼琴課,主要是因為覺得「唔好嘥」。然後因為是成人,覺得如果沒有八級或文憑好像也「水皮」。於是迫自己不停的去練習考試歌,甚至要在很短的時間來完成考試,才保住面子。這樣做真是虐待自己,重複小時候被迫練琴的陰影。

那麼,你可能會問我,「你是不贊成考試吧?」

這也不是。其實我覺得考試有一定的好處。尤其是高級的演奏文憑考試,甚至是老師文憑考試,對學生老師的音樂教育和演奏修養有一定的水準提高。只不過,因為很多人見到考試二字,就只想盡方法去合格或拿到高分,忘記了學習真正的音樂知識,白白浪費了時間和機會,最後只是拿了分數,而沒有真正的得著。

所以,我請大家問自己第二個問題:究竟如果沒有考試的話,你會否繼續學琴彈琴和練琴呢?如果你的答案是「是」的話,恭喜你,因為你就算沒有別人的逼迫,沒有死線在前面,你也會繼續上課,練習鋼琴,聆聽音樂,盡量吸取音樂和演奏知識的話,那麼你一定可以在鋼琴領域上邁進一大步,被那些只觀念考試的人在考試中更能考取更佳的成績。

那你可能會說,既然我不用考試的話,那就不用上課吧,只在家中自己學習、練習就成了一對嗎?

那我問你一個問題:如果我去學習瑜伽,而我不是去成為瑜伽老師或者參加瑜伽比賽的話,那我是不是不用去上瑜伽班呢?

我是可以在家自己練習的,自己看書就可以啦,對吧?但是如果我想有進步、需要別人指點的話,我可能需要一個有專業瑜伽知識的老師,去幫助改善姿勢、學習更多瑜伽方面的知識,那我應該是想去上課吧?

那麼究竟興趣是否需要學習進修以改善技巧和吸取更多知識呢?興趣是否需要以其他方法去量度呢(例如考試表演等等)?當然如果你是想去專業方面去做,即是如果我想成為一個專業的瑜伽老師的話,那麼我就要去想專業老師訓練吧,又或者我是想成為一個星級瑜伽明星,那麼我就要特別去進修瑜伽技巧,已成為一個出色的瑜伽明日之星。

所以彈琴也是一樣,處決於你想怎樣去對待這件事。個人認為,就算是興趣也好,我自己也想有一個紮實的根基,有良好的基礎去彈奏,明白基本的音樂知識,有好的視譜技巧、聆聽技巧等等。至於考不考試的話,就是個人的決定了。所以重點來說,我覺得你真的是喜歡去學習鋼琴、欣賞音樂,培養這方面的修養和技巧和知識,這樣做的話,學音樂起上來就會得心應手了。無論是成人和小朋友也是一樣,如果家長真的希望小朋友在這方面有一定的水準的話,請在一開始就給小孩子有一定的時間和心機去做好這件事。這樣做的話,小孩子的音樂修養和考試成績也一定有相當的水準。
