In teaching violin we'll (my students and i) take our first steps by learning some simple chord shapes and strumming patterns.
From here on it will become apparent just how many songs my students can learn with just three or four chords and i endeavour to incorporate my students favourite songs into the teaching process as we progress.
Allowing them also play along to tailor made backing tracks as they progress, to give them that feeling of playing with a band from day one.
My name is Adedayo, I am a graduate of Olabisi Onabanjo University where i studied Foreign Languages. I also have other professional qualifications such as a diploma in French Langugage Studies from the Federal Republic of France, professional certificate in Musical Studies from the Musical Society of Nigeria which was sponsored by MTN, Nigeria. I am also a member of the Nigerian Institute of Management(chattered).
I have been teaching French Language, Musical Theory, Piano, Violin, Vocal Techniques,Trumpet, to mention a few for over four (4) years.
In my years of teaching, I have found myself in front of really difficult situations due to the circumstances that surrounds some of my students, however I never let this discourage me instead i always see these circumstances as challenges to overcome and learn from. While gaining experience and improving as a teacher.
My approach to teaching starts with the first class been focused on learning my students general level in each subject and what they expect to achieve from each class and at the end of the session. I use these information to create an appropriate individual lesson plan for my students taking into account their skills and what needs to be done and improve in order to reach the aim.
