June's Music Teacher Interview

Posted by costastaffmusic@gmail.com on May 29, 2020 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)


Meet Rebekah! 

1. How long have you been teaching music?

Rebekah: I have been teaching music for 20 years

 

2. What inspired you to teach music?

Rebekah: I wanted to be just like my music teacher

Marie Sawany was my first private teacher

 

3. What is your favorite instrument?

Rebekah: Violin is my favorite. I do love cello but don't play. I can play the piano!

 

 

4. Any musical tips for teachers?

Rebekah: Make sure you are really listening to the student. I always say to my students "please ask any questions, If you dont understand I am willing to listen". or.." Dont be afraid to say something if I have piled on too much for you to manage."

I also often inform my students in how I much I give them. I give them a certain amount of work and have them work with it for a week and then we discuss what happened. Was it too much? Too little? Or just right? Now sometimes I still will pile it on - to challenge them. I make sure they know they have a voice. Teachers should be willing to try new methods. if you have been teaching a certin way for years and its not working for the particular student, change. Dont be afraid to try new books as well.

 

 

 

5. Any advice for parents?

Rebekah: Don't just think the teacher is just a sitter for 30 min or however the amount of time you have chosen for the lesson.

If it is at home, be somewhat engaged. For example, if you hear the child is misbehaving - not listening to the teacher - and heard a number of times the teacher had to repeat stop, YOU need to deal with it. It can simply be just walking in the room and not saying anything. Maybe just standing near the student. If need be tell the student to come in the kitchen for a quick word. Also maybe have the student apoloigise to the teacher after the lesson.

If you are in a music studio and just dropping the student, don't text the student to come out to the car. Be there a little before the lesson ends so the teacher can talk to you. Be open minded to listen.

 

 

6. Talk about a memorable teaching experience.

Rebekah: I had just gotten a new student. She never played violin before, she picked up the instrument and had the perfect left hand position. I was so amazed!!!! She is an amazing player, and gets better every lesson I hear her play. She is such a joy to teach, I often can't wait to have a lesson with her. Plus she's a funny student!

 

 

7. What methods or music books do you use to teach?

Rebekah: I teach from Suzuki and the Barbara Barber violin books. I mainly cater to the student. I try to see which method books works best for them.

 

 

8. Why is music so important to you?

Rebekah: It is an outlet for me, to express who I am. I also have been given this gift to give to others. It is a joy for me to play for the all generations. I love it! It is also a way for me to get to know people from all walks of life even if i dont know their language very well. Music can change people. As a musician I can bring people together from all walks of life and I love doing that!

May's Music Teacher Interview

Meet Edwin Lopez Villada!!

1. How long have you been teaching music?

Edwin: I've been teaching since late 2002

 

2. What inspired you to teach music?

Edwin: Assisting people inspires me the most to teach music.

 

3. What is your favorite instrument?

Edwin: Though I've always been debating between piano and violin, I chose piano!

 

4. Any musical tips for teachers?

Edwin: I have no musical tips for teachers because they have their own ways of teaching, but nudge your students wisely if you wish to challenge them.

 

5. Any advice for parents?

Edwin: Most parents must be supportive to their young children by knowing the difference between being a great supporter and vigilante. This is the main reason I would recommend parents to attend my lessons so they would be able to help their children with home assignment.

 

6. Talk about a memorable teaching experience.

Edwin: My memorable teaching experience was when I started to become a music tutor in Essex County College in Newark, NJ as my second year.

 

7. What methods or music books do you use to teach?

Edwin: I always recommend a staff notebook in order to write down notes. Alfred's piano lesson book for young students is my favorite because it explains music very clearly.

 

8. Why is music so important to you?

Edwin: Music is important to me because I want to inform music students that music is not just an art but also a universal language, and for me teaching them is my passion.
