Krishan’s Approach to Teaching:
Growth through experience! It’s very important to perform and experience as much music as you can! Listening to others play and learning from listening is key to perfecting your own performance.Lessons, above all, will be both as fun and as communicative as possible. For that reason, students will be encouraged to ask questions and experiment with their instrument. My job is to be the best guiding influence I can!I like to teach a diverse range of repertoire, as well as covering fundamentals and theory in lessons, as a result, there will be a little bit of everything! I will focus on the areas that need improvement the most, and give the student tips and techniques for making the learning process easier.Reviews:”Krishan has been a great piano teacher to our two young sons.
