Dr. Purvi's primary goal is to establish an open channel of communication between her & the learners to get to know their areas of interest and then proceed with the session at a pace best suited to the learner. She provides detailed tailor-made compositions for every lesson plan which act as a point of reference for the learner during their lessons and even after they're done with it.
Dr. Purvi has an eclectic approach to teaching from years of experience from having taught both children and adults so even if one's a beginner, they need not fret as a step-by-step approach will be undertaken to ensure that the learner is well versed with the basics of composition, reading compositions and eventually learning to compose on their own as well!
Her extensive experience in teaching over 800+ online lessons since she began conducting online classes before the global lockdown in 2020 creates a seamless and effective learning experience for her learners, successfully replicating the benefits of physical teaching in an online format.
Dr. Purvi delivers a complete package in every single session you choose to take with her hereby ensuring that the learner isn't reliant on carrying forward the specific lesson for another session if they do not opt to. However, she believes it is essential for the learners to revise what they've learned, therefore she suggests that they riyaaz (practice) if it fits comfortably into their schedule.
Note: For learners not in possession of a Harmonium, the lessons can be taught on the keyboard as well.
Dr. Purvi pursued her Ph.D. (Music) from Maharshi Dayanand University, Haryana where she also earned her Masters (Music) and was awarded Gold Medal for being the university topper.
