Teaching

“You can only teach yourself. Until we live in a day where I can physically implant knowledge into your head, I can teach you nothing. I can only show you things.”


Victor L. Wooten (The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth Through Music)

--> (english) <--
Als Instrumentalpädagoge sehe ich es als meine Kernaufgabe, Unterrichtsinhalte und Zusammenhänge methodenreich aufzuzeigen und umfassend verständlich zu machen.
Das Herausbilden einer individuellen musikalischen, selbst-reflektierenden Person, Kennenlernen eigener Stärken und Schwächen und musikalischen Interessen, stehen dabei im Vordergrund.
 
DRUMS
 
VOCALS
Für meinen Unterricht
--> habe ich drei Proberäume zur Verfügung,
--> bin ich mobil unterwegs
--> biete Live-Videounterricht
--> oder individuelles Videocoaching an.
Die Kombination dieser Möglichkeiten (Präsenz- <-> Videounterricht) bietet einen individuell zugeschnittenen Instrumentalunterricht.
Ich freue mich dich kennenzulernen :-)
//

My philosophy on teaching is to explore ways in which my students find their own musical expression, such as their own voice and interests.

Throughout the course of their lessons, they will learn to be their own critical teacher by extensively analyzing their own weaknesses and strengths.

 

The core task of every lesson is to provide a variety of methods and approaches to the student to better guide them in fully comprehending and correlating every topic of each lesson.
