オンラインピアノレッスン・ My Piano lessons online

この1ヶ月オンラインピアノレッスンに切り替えてから楽しい事苦しい事両方ありました。やっと少し落ち着いて来ました。まず一番神経をすり減らすのはインターネット接続が時々unstableになってfreezeした事。これに対してはwifi中継器ーをもう一つ購入したので殆どこれで解決した様で!It’s been one month since I had changed all my piano lessons to online. At first, it was quite stressful with trials & errors but there have been much blessings as well. The biggest headache was occasionally disrupted WIFI connection which made screen to freeze. This was such a frustration but I bought another adopter and hope this will solve the issue.

良い❤️事( Blessings)

*上級者も初心者も私が何かを言い終わる前に喋っても、弾き終える前に弾き出しても聞こえないので、注意や話を最後まで聞いてから一息置いて弾き始める事、と散々言ったので、対面の時より一応話を終わりまで皆聞いてから始める様になった事(忘れてしまう時もあるね)To students of all the levels, I had reminded them not to speak too quickly for through internet conference software can pick one person’s talk at once. Even most inpatient students can not interrupt when I am talking. Everybody have to wait until one party finishes talking or playing. ( of course these inpatient forgets that time to time!)

*通常のレッスンでは、注意点を私が楽譜に書き込むが、オンラインレッスンでは生徒に自分で書かせる。宿題も自分で記録させるので、返って自分で記録する事によって学習課題への自覚が生まれる。(小学校低学年の生徒さんは書くのが遅い~~笑 一生懸命で可愛い)

Usually I write my remarks in Students’ music or lesson notes books but now, they write down remarks and list of their home works by themselves. This works good for them to remember their assignment with summery of my instructions to remember.(Lower elementary school grade age pupils are quite slow in writings but they are making a wonderful effort! )

*音に関してはPC同士やIpad PC間では細かいことの共通の把握は望めないが、楽譜は共有できるので、注意がいつもより、楽譜に書いてある事を見直す=注意を払って楽譜を読むことに持って行ける。上級者には私は楽譜をスキャンしてフォアスコア経由で楽譜に注意を書き込んでPDFで送る。書きこみすぎて普段無視されている注意を 新鮮に真っ白なスキャンファイルから新たにポイントされて問題点を見直す事ができる?・(と良いな~~)私自身も問題点がまとまって見えてくる=私にとっても、生徒が弾いている曲を学習できる機会となる。

More focus on score reading. Since we can not expect to hear quality of sounds and subtle nuances online but we can share printed score and I can suggest students to read music more carefully. For older students, I scan music , using for score and add comments& instructions and send to them as pdf with annotation.


To conduct all the lessons, I have to have music(score) my students use, plan ahead what to do and summaries what students can do until next lesson, this makes me a better teacher who does more planning , rather than being a playful musician with inspiration & demonstration.

*レッスンはだらだら伸びることはなく、無駄なく効率的に運べる。 With this more speculations and planning, now I lead each lessons more efficiently and I feel good. For example, Now instead of giving the cures at the each site, I observe for more than one week to see what their problems are and try to give them point/ focused solutions. I always feel like I am a piano doctor. 1,Observe.2, think 3. Give them cure


For piano players, where to keep pencils to write in fingering numbers and other instructions in scores have ben always problematic, I have dropped pencils always inside of piano and had to remove heavy piano lid to retrieve them.
