Experience
Tutoring since 2008 and teaching piano since 2010.

I am patient and understand that every student requires a different teaching approach in order for them to learn. I have had experience with students who are slower in learning where in this case, diagrams and models will be more useful to them.

My usual approach will be to assess the student's previous exam papers during the first lesson and identify the mistakes made and any doubts they have. With this, I will have a better understanding of the student's weakness and be able to come up with a detailed lesson plan and going through certain basics if it is necessary. Many of my students are siblings and have been with me for few years from primary to secondary school.

Techniques and overall musicianship is very much emphasized rather then the normal notes. For these years, my students obtained merit and distinction for both theory and practical.

1396. LeRain Lee is a StarTutor Pro

LeRain says

Am commissioned by an upcoming music school to do a complete 3 years program of curriculum and syllabus planning. The 2nd year is completed.

9 years experience in teaching chinese at primary & secondary school level and piano till grade 8. Also an assistant choral instructor and experienced in accompaniment for single line instruments for exams such as violin.

Attached to Gramercy Music School (Holland V) as a piano teacher for 9 years and on-going. Able to teach basic, intermediate pop drumming, jazz theory, jazz piano, pop piano and music composition other than usual classical practical and theory.

There will be an annual recital for all my students and it will be counted as one lesson. Students will get to play on a grand piano in an auditorium or recital hall.

Very experienced with kids as well as teenagers and adults. Emphasis is on cultivating the individual's interest in piano and music or mandarin language.

Chinese subject focus is Creative writing. My student with me for 9 years who hated the chinese language and did not mind failing or hanging around the border developed a keen interest in it as she grew older. Now she speaks fluent chinese, able to read both modern and olden day chinese writings and also able to watch chinese series or movies without subtitles and have no problems in understanding the show anymore. She is now in sec 4.

All my students are motivated to achieve Merit and Distincition in both Theory and Practical. Piano includes extensive repetoire other than usual 3 exam pieces only.

Jazz and Pop lessons are by per lesson. $50 per hr, learning how to play from lead sheets and various grooves. Materials are provided.

Learning how to play jazz and pop through clearly notated scores and not lead sheets have same charges as classical piano.

StarTutor's Review

LeRain is a confident and genuine person. She is an expertise in the Music field. She knows the different available exams (ABRSM, Trinity etc) for piano and their respective pros and cons. Thus, you can easily trust her to recommend the most suitable exam for your child to undertake.

She specializes at teaching Piano, both practical and theory with students ranging from Beginner to Grade 8, age ranging from 5 – 30 plus years old (Young child – Adult). She is able to analyze every student and come up with customized teaching method.

For younger children aged 7 and below, she feels that 30 minutes will be the maximum attention span and will not recommend anything beyond that. She interacts with the parents often to update them about their child’s progress, strengths and weaknesses in order to bring the best out of the child with the parents’ assistance.

For beginners, she teaches posture and introduction to the piano keys on the first lesson as she knows that the basic is always the most important key to proceed to higher levels. Although theories for Grade 5 and above are not compulsory, LeRain encourages her students to not only complete Grade 8 Practical, but also theory, to be a true qualified pianist. She loves to assist her musically talented students to go against their limits for greater achievements.

With her vast experience, LeRain is able to get suitable material for her students. She uses the age of the student as a gauge. For young children, colorful books filled with pictures will be suitable to capture their attention and arouse their interest whereas for adults, a typical book will be of better use.

Being a Full-Time Piano home-tutor and a Part-Time Piano tutor at Gramercy Music School, LeRain keeps herself updated with changes occurring in the Music field. She is patient yet firm when needed and believes that hard work will be accompanied with rewards.

Commitment
It is important for the parent to understand that music and arts take long time to reap results. The parent has to play their part in motivating their own kid and not pressuring them for getting the piece of paper.

The parent must understand that different child has different rate of learning. I do not believe in stupidity as that has been the moto of my teachers. Hardwork will be able to surpass talent.

Kids with me for a long period do gain higher level of confidence. What I do to help them is also to develop good virtues and values in the long term.

Once a kid is with me, I'll try my best to cultivate his/her interest, help them to teach themselves the skills requires for a life long ability to appreciate music.
