Adult Piano Lessons | Core Values for Amazing Instructors
This content was created for Curtis Music Academy
At Curtis Music Academy, our primary core value is patience. We do not pressure students to learn a concept within a specific amount of time. We realize that each student is special and unique. A concept might take a certain amount of time for each individual to learn and sink into thoroughly. Because our adult piano lessons are tailor made for each student, we remain calm and remember our intent with each lesson so that our students can learn the necessary concepts that would help them progress in their musical journey.
We make sure that their environment is a peaceful and loving one so that they do not feel pressured themselves to learn each concept then and there in that moment. If the student makes a mistake, which is inevitable, as we all make mistakes, we do not react negatively, we react in a proactive manner which helps each student learn from the mistakes that they have made, which inevitably progressive’s them on their musical path.
As an example, there is a story that might help you understand where we’re coming from. With this being our first and most important core value, if you look at the Chinese bamboo tree. You would observe if you had ever taken care to grow one, that once you plant it, you might water it for one year, then two years, then three years.
And so on to the fourth year, then the fifth year, and nothing has happened. Then in the fifth year, you continue to water it for six weeks after. And in those six weeks, the bamboo tree rapidly grows 90 feet. So you may be asking yourself. How long did it take for the bamboo tree to grow 90 feet? Six weeks. Rather, we would submit to you that it took five years for the bamboo tree to grow 90 feet. Because during the first five years, the bamboo tree was growing.
A root system so large that it could support a 90 foot tree in the same way at Curtis Music Academy. We will have the patience to teach you the fundamentals that will be a foundation and a root system for you to grow up from and to become a master at your specific instrument for each student. It is going to be different. That is another thing we pride ourselves in, is having tailor made adult piano lessons plans for each student so that they can succeed in the way that is best for them.
We make sure that the instructors at the studio are teaching the students in a top notch manner that provides a calm, collected and intentional environment that is needed for success in music.
