• The professors are at the heart of the project of Mi-Young Lee. The quality of our courts cannot be guaranteed without a complete membership of the teachers to the pedagogy wanted by PIANO ACADEMIE. 

    We so have a program of recruitment, training and evaluation set up which allows to propose to the pupils of our academy a quality level of homogeneous education.

  • The training of the professors

    After their selection, the professors do a training course with Mi-Young Lee.

    The first part of training is dedicated to the method of learning proposed by Mi-Young Lee. This method is applied with all the pupils, the children or the adults.

    The second part is dedicated to specific pedagogy for the children:

    • Text books are then all peeled by insisting on the result waited after every lesson.
    • The videos of the courts are viewed.
    • The new teachers attend then courses given to the school.
  • Their first courses will then be given in double, with a professor referent who will help them adjust their method.

    In environment and at the end of the year school, a day of training in a group is made by the set of the teachers and Mi-Young Lee. Each so shares the experiences and proposes axes of improvement. The changes are so adopted by the teaching staff.

  • Teachers evaluation

    The evaluation of the professors is made for various levels: 

    • The return of the pupils or the parents. 

    We invite every pupil or every pupil's parent to go back up us as soon as possible the various remarks which they could have. So much on the quality of the education, the made progress either the behavior of the professor. 

    These returns are immediately taken into account and so necessary we let us get in touch with the pupils or the parents to understand well the origin of the problem.

    • The evaluation by the Academy

     PIANO ACADEMIE controls the progress of the pupils as follow:

    • After every courses: the professors send to the academy a video of what was learnt by the pupil.
    • Every month: the professors send a report formalized of the lesson.
    • Twice a year: we control during the courses. Our educational person in charge assists then the course and estimates the professor following a railing organized by Mrs Lee.
    • Concerts:

    Two concerts are realized for the children on the school year. These concerts are very naturally prepared by the children with their professor.

    Mi-Young Lee attends both hearings notice then the progress made by the pupils and estimates at this moment the efficiency of the professors.

  • A questionnaire is put back to the end of every year to the parents to allow them to formalize their remarks.
