Teachers Academy Courses & Workshops

My experience learning at the Teachers’ Academy at The Music Circle was nothing short of the best. The teaching syllabus was very comprehensive and concise. The skills are practical and useful in any teaching situations be it teaching a beginner or advanced player. Though it’s a group learning setting, Tee Tong would always give her undivided attention to the individual’s learning pace. No other music schools that I have ever come across cares so deeply about real and proper music education of the students AND teachers other than this school.

The TMC Teachers Academy has been absolutely eye-opening and inspirational for me as a new educator. It not only prepared me to teach but made me question and consider various aspects of my own learning and being a musician, which very much shapes the way you teach. It was also very interesting to learn various pedagogies and understand how children learn. I am very thankful to Tee and her team for their time and effort to mentor and encourage me to grow and develop, without which I wouldn’t be the educator I am today.

My learnings from the TMC Teachers’ Academy form the basis of my teaching practice today, from the way I approach students to technical exercises.
