Flute Pedagogy – Teaching Beginners

“Flute Pedagogy – Teaching Beginners” training has finally come to an end after 16 weeks intensive sessions.

I always have the vision for local flute community to develop since I realised my passion in flute education years ago. 
I remember once I wrote “to make an impact to the music society by educating future instructors to cultivate good practices musically and socially” in my teaching philosophy.
Finally, after setting up my own music studio, I have the opportunity to do what I always wanted to.

Why 16 weeks training?
1 or 2 pedagogy seminars definitely not sufficient for the future teachers to understand their responsibility in their student’s growth.
It takes a lot a lot of practice to become a teacher, you cant be a good teacher by just graduating from the uni or after you got a grade 8 certificate. I realised many fresh grad music teachers wasn’t equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to know before accepting students. 

Special thanks to Myra for becoming the volunteer in this program, although she gets free lesson from me, but all the lessons was observed by the training participants, she is really brave to be able to do so in front of a bunch of strangers.

Lastly, I hope my students from the pedagogy training benefit from what I teach in the past 16 weeks, inspired by the thoughts and life advices I gave.

ps: I was exhausted preparing for this training every week, not gonna do this again in anytime soon 🤭
