Developing confidence through music
For both children and adults, learning to play the piano can help to build confidence and self-esteem. With the right teaching and encouragement at home, an aspiring pianist's sense of who they are as a person can strengthen and flourish:
They can find their voice, learn to express a range of emotions, and communicate with others through music
They build self-belief through gradually advancing their skills at the piano, showing up to practise, and committing themselves to their musical goals
Over time, they will look back and acknowledge what they have accomplished, which gives them the courage to meet challanges with a greater belief in their ability to overcome them.
With all my students, my aim is to encourage and nurture a healthy sense of confidence at the piano — helping them to grow as individuals through musical self-expression. Students who are shy, nervous, or anxious, can be assured of a learning environment that is safe, supportive, and calm. I see each each student for who they are, and give them the tools and encouragement they need to develop personally and musically.
