教學

Victor Sir 擁有多年教學經驗,由一對一授課到各中小學樂器班。無論學生年紀由 K.3 到成人,都可以替他們發掘音樂天賦,我深信音樂訓練能夠引導他們成長。

我認為只有透過正確的教學方法,因材施教,每一位學生都可以發揮出最大的音樂天賦。因此在教學時,我會為學生訂立目標,例如音樂考試或公開比賽。為學生度身訂造練習計劃,每個月訂立練習進度表,從基本功、演奏技巧乃至音樂風格。然後前情況調整教學策略,從而達到最大效益。

曾經有一位小三學生家長向我表示孩子練習得十分懶散,無法長時間集中。因此我首先跟學生商量一個合適的時長(一星期一小時,分四節,每節 15 分鐘),再安排好每一個時段的練習內容,要求學生逐點完成並紀錄。當有一定基礎後,我再推薦學生報考考試同時增加部分練習量,藉此循序漸進建立練習系統。每星期的練習時數及量化的練習內容可以令家長更易檢視學生進度之餘,另一方學生更加願意主動完成練習任務。最後順利完成考試之餘,亦學生學習得更加主動。
