Music can be performed in many styles, many rhythms, keys and time signatures.  Playing "by ear" doesn't limit you to what is written.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I teach classical music with as much hands on approach as possible, I use games and other incentives to motivate the student. I also pick methods that I think will most enhance the students progress and interest. I believe that understanding theory is very important for the student to be able to sight read well, and whether it is written or done on the computer, doesn't matter as long as it is effective, The parent and I must work together to encourage the student to do their best. Positive reinforcement no matter how small is key to the student's success--whether they become a concert pianist or just want to enjoy it for themselves!!

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

At the end of each lesson, when I see that my student is happy because he has learned something new and has become more confident in his abilities, as a teacher I feel this is the best reward. I choose and combine the most appropriate methods of musical training for each of my students, because each child is wonderfully unique. I believe in teaching using classical methods and stressing the importance of correct hand position, good technique, sight reading, memorization as well as teaching music theory. By combining correct techniques and understanding the essence of each piece of music, the student will appreciate and love music and performance.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

My philosophy is to push you to exceed your expectations and reach your goals while still having fun.  I will push you, but gently and show you a lot of effective ways of practicing so that you achieve more in less time.  I am big on technique and really believe in the importance of developing a solid technique, which I will help you to acquire.  A strong technique will give you the tools you need to play whatever you want skillfully.  With a commanding technique you will be able to focus on making beautiful music.  After all it is all about the music!  Speaking of the music, I feel music has two sides, the side where you feel and connect with the music, composer and performer emotionally.  There is also a scientific / mathematical side to music which is called music theory.  Having an understanding of the analytical side of music helps you to understand what you are playing.  Unforgettable performances are the result of deep analysis, emotional connection to what the composer has written and brilliant technical skill.  When these elements are bridged together the results are astounding.

Irwin SolomonJazz Piano Teacher, Performer & Accompanist

PHONE: 561-732-2192
LOCATION: Boynton Beach, FL
AGES: Adults
Level: Intermediate / Advanced

 

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Music should be enjoyable to learn - if it isn't what is the point of doing it?  I think the piano is a very large box of crayons - 88 different colors. What I try to do is teach the different ways to use these colors to achieve the musical picture. It's not the the number of notes that are played that is important - it's how the notes are used - thats what creates music.

In addition to teaching, Mr Solomon is available for performing, either as a solo pianist, or with a group, from as little as two musicians, to a complete seventeen piece big band. He is also an accomplished vocal and/or instrumental accompanist.
