- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
My priority is teaching my students how to feel music. Depending on the level, I concentrate on understanding the theory of music.
For my piano students: I teach them the fundamental techniques like, hand and finger positions, how to use the wrists, and the body using my Full Body Perception Method. Then I combine all those with repertory work and interpretation.
