Music is connected in all elements. We cannot isolate a piece to teach without involving any aural awareness, and neither can we teach theory without ‘hearing’ the theory, (e.g. we have to hear the pitch of a sharpened note when we teach the accidental - sharp ‘#’). This cohesive organisation of thoughts and actions will make your lessons invaluable and interesting to your students. With it intertwined together, the lessons become ‘alive’ and musically enriching. — The ART of Teaching by Alice Chua

Let’s move on together for a more ‘MUSICAL’ music education for the new generation. They deserve a better music education than ours!
Set goals that are attainable, then slowly raise the bar. It is better to play something easier and master it, understand the character and technicalities of the piece, before moving on to more difficult pieces. Do not straightaway choose pieces that are too difficult, to avoid frustration and discouragement. - Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“Do not straightaway Google song sheets for your favourite songs. Try to DIY. Reach out with your musical sense and play out the melody. Use chord progression to add accompaniment to the melody. Decorate the tune with catchy ornaments. The song will be more meaningful with your own personal touch.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments
