Teaching Philosophy on my Saxophone Lessons in London.

I am strongly   committed   to   education. A few years ago I decided to  teach saxophone  privately in London people from all ages and backgrounds and ever since  I work  to  connect  music  to  my  students   daily  surroundings  and  activities with  the goal of making music a vital part of everyones lives. 

 

As an educator, my role is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for my students to learn and grow. It is important for learning to take place in such an environment so that students are not only free to be themselves, but free to make mistakes.

Why does this matter?

As a saxophone teacher, my goal is to be a facilitator of learning and a mediator of discourse rather than simply telling students what I want them to know.

I think I can learn just as much from my students as they can learn from me, so I want to make sure to show them as much respect as they give me by allowing for free flow of students’ ideas and interpretations.

 

How?

I do this by allowing students some input in choosing the music that they play, as well as specific content they want to learn. Music can drive certain emotions and a certain piece can mean something different to each person. I want to validate my students and their ideas about a piece by allowing them to share their personal connections so that  the students are able to combine their various experiences to create a deeper, broader and personal interpretation of their music.
