Teaching piano can never be confined in the four walls of the classroom. The piano teacher shall bear in mind that he or she has to take music education beyond traditional borders; sometimes new things and crafts would be learned, adopted, understood and acquired through some field works and adventures. Modern piano teaching can now be appreciated and enjoyed by most if not all our students. And this includes going beyond boundaries and traditional teaching.

There are various piano teaching methods; each strategy has to meet both the weaknesses and strengths of the students.
