Piano Teaching Philosophy
Learning the piano is a great way to develop creativity and self-expression, as well as intellectual abilities such as memory and concentration. Hampstead Piano Academy believes that music is an art form that teaches skills whilst also being enjoyable.
Hampstead Piano Academy is an institution with a friendly environment; our teachers know each student well and focus on their specific needs. The pupils get the teachers’ undivided attention and each lesson is carefully planned as well as tracked with the reports.
Our piano teachers are Mario and Angela, an ambitious and motivated couple who want to create a new concept of learning piano in the borough of Camden. They are also active piano performers with a passion for educating the next generation of young musicians.
M&A love music and love sharing their passion. They want to pass this enthusiasm onto their students, whether they’re just starting out or are confident performers. They help build their student’s self-esteem and give them confidence for the future.
The piano lessons
They are the vehicle to teach the ingredients of music to the degree that the pupils have really internalised what they’ve learned and can then apply them in all contexts. During the lessons, the teachers are continually making connections to deepen and inspire their students’ understanding of music. M&A believe that teaching is about continually drawing on their imagination to create even more possibilities to help the students get from their A (can’t do it) to their B (can do it), whatever their pace is and however they work.
Our teachers also recognise that all students are different. They all move at different paces and it is so important to acknowledge it. HPA believes that the process is more important than the outcome. The challenge of learning an instrument must be enriching, exciting, absorbing and engaging. If it is all those things, then the journey becomes just as important as getting results.
