Lauw Jiyi (Senior Teacher)
My teaching career first started as a part-time stint for the sole purpose of earning a little extra pocket money whilst pursuing my academic education in University. By the time I graduated, I knew that teaching music was my calling. Teaching music, or any other subject for that matter, is a difficult journey filled with plenty of ups and downs. Before I started teaching, I never imagined that I would feel such immense stress and anxiety when preparing some students for the exams or for concerts. I had not expected to feel frustrations and disappointments so deep, when my students neglected to practice. Yet, on the other hand, I never thought that their improvements, no matter how little, would bring such joy and fulfillment to my life. There are moments where my students are daunted by a challenging part, (sometimes even to tears) and they finally overcome it by listening and following my instructions on how to tackle it. This is most fulfilling to me, as I enjoy building up their confidence in their ability, and watching their wide smiles upon realising that they have just accomplished what they previously thought was impossible. Teaching is my passion, my dedication is to the music and my responsibility is to ensure that my students improve at every single class. Although I am the teacher, many times it is they whom I learn from. Some posture and bow hold mistakes are very common amongst all students, and watching and listening to them, and realising the solution to the mistake makes me grow as a teacher. Everyday, my students help me grow as a person as well, and it is through them that I have learnt numerous important life lessons. It is through teaching, that I have also come to understand that patience, empathy, and tactfulness are not simply nice virtues to strive for, but is required of anyone who is a teacher. I hold a Diploma in Violin Performance with Distinction from the Trinity College of London, along with a Bachelor of Science in Business with Second-Class Honours from the University of London. I am also registered with the Ministry of Education in Singapore (MOE) under the AMIS scheme, where I teach Violin Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) at three Primary Schools. I have been teaching privately since 2009, and have been teaching in the primary schools since 2011. Over the past six years, 72% of my private students’ ABRSM exam results have been Merits and Distinctions.
