  • Now, I knew the importance of this kind of social status... It's not quite about your teaching skills, teaching achievements from experiences, performance gifts blessed, and something - artist inspiring ideas and creations in education... but how others see you in society... no mather where in this earth, it's also like ...

  • Piano Education is a subject mainly in the family-based teaching & learning way (face-to-face and a supervisor with a family one by one), and as the intangible cultural heritage (from heart to mouth) of music from West and to all around the world (as a king instrument for itself, the correction of other instruments or vocal schools, and modern & digital & pop...

  • Sight-reading slowly (eyeballs movement position-locating, notation-translating and the matching way -rate between two hands...) is a helpful way to help students with specific learning difficults comprehensively...

  • Regarding with the posture of singing, also some other musical performance-forms, there is an argument lasting for centuries... I would describe it more clearly as I can:
    On one side, someone believes the postures of body-legs, back, chest, even head, mouth and throat... need to be fixed-on... or with certain scientific manners...

    On the other side,...

  • Therefore, we said: the assessment and examination should equally, transparently and fairly evaluate pupils' progressions. It's not to say: some students get a level to... but we cannot grade out; meanwhile, some students didn't get a level in cultivation, but we had to gradeout...
    Beside this point, we should encorage pupils to enjoy this musical learning...

  • In piano and music, all the grades and levels, abilities and achievements are very clear in standards and pupils' practices...

  • It's never to say:
    Finally, depending on some unnecessary and different ways, a parent's child get a certificate of Grade 10-the top one (but his or her hands didn't evenly achieve the ability, but equaling to no more than the half),
    meanwhile, a teacher's heart from an educational family and his or her family members' relationships have been totally broken...

  • Sometimes, we also need to care about teachers and their family's health at work, especially for some traditional Instrument's teachers, like piano- lasting for centuries as the inheritance...
    The reasonability of musical education is there which wasn't to say: a student didn't get the ability as a level of Grade 7th or Grade 10th...However, under some...

  • Art sometimes is art, only...
    If knowing every harmonic composing points and musical technique ways from nature and the self-being...
    that's the freedom whether or not pupils, even some adults choose to compose or improvise...
    If they did try, we will be together to think whether or not they are creations....
    That's a final opening... in my opinions...

  • Oh, I am not a composer... but in many different ways I did do some very similarities...
    such as singing...
    I felt very confused for long...
    My Major is piano... but my composing&improvising wasn't really here...

  • Homework to begin... yes...
    I usually think homework for many times...
    I know pupils' schooling stress....
    Therefore, every piece of homework I did use my brain to analyze how much time they may use and how to scientifically arrange the time...
    I also did ask them what about their schooling situation... and whether they could make a timetable to...

  • Yes, pupils usually brought their favorite pieces of scores, such as pop, rock, improvising piano songs... into my classes, and I also used some very classic but effective ways and techniques to help them analyse and make the designs of how they can perform them our...

  • In another view...
    After completing a whole grade examination system(must according to pupils' nature and the laws of age&growth), there are two brief points of benifits (Techniques & art creativity) we can find:
    1. Every time when I listen to a piece of music(piano or others), I would think: what grade it, if being realized by the hands techniques, may be...

  • There should be a good recircling to Knowledge& skills for the real ability-improving, and It's really some pupils of mine did really pay the energy to and get... However, It's not to say: you didn't do the basic working or got the basic level of a grade, just depending on other ways your parents may have, your teacher have to say - yes, you got... If it...

  • To the assessment of grading examination, indeed, teachers , experts and examiners, their own hearts, have all gotten a reasonable "standards-tree"...which was from centuries' accumulation and also the observations of pupils' progress generations after generations... Just someone didn't want to say out(for some purposes)...
    Such as in piano...
    In Grade 5,...

  • There must be assessment from Examination-testing, and also the standards. And also some comments from teachers' regular observations of pupils' daily endeavors and progresses.

  • Other things are okay... I thought physics and science can explain many things, such as mechanics(levers, fulcrum, arms of force), acoustics(frequency and periods), some scenes of life, like skipping stones on the lakes, river-landscapes, sea waves, Moon&clouds, climbing the mountain, swimming...some heart-feeling of psychology and moods-changing...

  • Ah, you see... not only piano... all the instruments have all been correcting pupils' basic postures from the very beginning... how to take stick, the distance from the instrument, the natural&relaxing shoulders... Then, the other is notation(scores)...
    Why?
