My passion project

For my passion project, I had a difficult time deciding what I wanted to do. There are many things that I am interested in such as painting, cooking, photography, and exploring the outdoors. After much thought, I finally decided on something that I have wanted to do for a while now- to teach piano. Music has been an integral part of my life since the age of six, and although I am no stranger to the technical and performance skills that are needed to be a good piano player, I am new to the concept of teaching children those skills and I want to learn to be the best piano teacher I can be. Starting February, I will be teaching two children how to play the piano and plan on documenting my journey by posting pictures and videos of techniques I used, describing what went well and what didn’t, and reflecting on my overall experience. Alongside this, I want to keep track of my ongoing music studies by playing the piano regularly and completing music analysis for my upcoming exam in the summer. Upon completion of this exam, I will be given my ARCT teaching diploma. Because I have completed all my exams for piano, I’ve been finding it hard to find time and a purpose to practice regularly. I believe that by also documenting my journey towards getting my ARCT diploma, I can keep the passion that I have for music alive which will also help me to become a good piano teacher.
