About Zacharias W.
MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
‘Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid’ - Albert Einstein
As the quote states above, I believe everyone are born with unique strengths and abilities, but education and school often try and box us in to a specific way of learning which aren’t ideal for us as individuals. I believe a teacher’s role is to discover how a person learns best and adapt the lessons to the individual's abilities and personality. I also believe we learn best when we are fully immersed in something, lingering in a space between being too challenged and being able to master a task. Flow, passion and curiosity will take us further as musicians and my role as a teacher is to create that space for you and awaken your inner artist.
