Effective Teaching (VARK Modalities)

To teach music effectively, we find the strengths in every student and tap on it to make learning a breeze. We believe in helping students develop their strongest learning senses within the VARK Model to enhance their learning process.

What is VARK Model?

The acronym VARK stands for Visual, Aural/Auditory, Read/Write, Kinesthetic. They are modalities that affects our learning. Realizing our strengths withing VARK help us to plan facilitate better lesson plans. This will allow the student to reach their maximum learning potential and be able to learn new things quickly.

Visual Learners

Visual learners are usually good sight readers and are able to read faster than other students. They have the ability to understand music sheets and play them in a much shorter time. They see patterns and shapes within songs, music scores and music pieces. They also learn well by watching demonstrations by their teacher.

Aural/Auditory Learners

Aural/Auditory learners have a keen sense of hearing. They are able to distinguish beats from music and can learn by repeating the notes they have heard onto the instrument they play. Aural/Auditory learners who have been learning for a while are also able to transcribe music and "hear" the music sheet even without playing!

Read/Write Learners

Read/Write learners, like visual learners, are also good with reading and music scores. They can disect the information on the music sheets and are able to familiarise themselves with the music scores given to them quickly.

Kinesthetic Learners

Kinesthetic learners are students who are able to learn by experiencing playing the instrument itself. This is particularly useful for learning any music instruments because we rely on muscle memory to learn how to play them. They learn fast when replicating movements and take a more hands-on approach, relying less on music sheets.
