Playing the piano, of course is one of the ways of expressing your ideas, emotions and feelings. It is when you have the total freedom of expression through your music. However, teaching piano could also be a better way to develop your mind and to realize your purpose as a teacher. Teaching piano may not be as easy as pie since you will be dealing with students with different personalities and different attitudes towards your lessons. There might be students who are fast to learn the tasks but there are those who need more guidance from the teachers. When teaching piano, it is best to assess the student’s level. This would help you decide the right task and approach to the student. However, regardless of the level, you have to make the student comfortable with the piano.

Seeing your student climb the ladder of success gives you the pride as the teacher. This also motivates you to strive more for yourself for excellence. Along the way you also know that as your students become successful, they carry with them the knowledge and the techniques that they get from you.
