What are the most important methods that teachers use to create the optimal musical experience for their students?
For Piano, I suggest:
using simple and quick visualizations: these are just simple visualizations that use the piano as a visual medium. Visualizations will help you to understand what you are doing in a quick way. For example, if you have been practising using the piano for
