About Me

*NEW TO APPRENTUS, SEE PHOTOS FOR PREVIOUS REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS*

I started playing piano at the age of 5, guitar at the age of 9 and drums at the age of 11. I have been teaching since I was 15. Last year I decided to make it my primary focus and am looking to develop my client base further.

All ages, abilities and styles are catered for and I am happy to offer advice and guidance on anything from guitar string choice to complex music theory. I also have recording and production facility if you require additional learning aids, such as backing tracks.

As I always say, the best and most satisfying thing for accomplished musicians to be able to do is to “play it forward” to those in the earlier stages of their own musical journey.

Apprendre à jouer à la guitare acoustique/électrique
Guitar lessons are always useful for all levels of guitar playing. the course content will depend on the level of the student and is entirely open to any preferences in songs or techniques the student wishes to learn. My course is designed in such a way that it focuses on the student's creativity with the guitar and works towards fine tuning what will eventually become the student's original song or composition. I encourage my students to tap into their creativity, since in my experience, I have found that this is where the pleasure and beauty of music tends to surface, when there are the least amount of boundaries possible. All styles of music are welcome!

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time.

Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music, Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing. I am currently an opera singer working with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques, but I also share my knowledge about music history and theory when they need. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and music presentation, alongside with basic techniques. Since I grow up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I can also speak some simple German. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

I am currently a member of the IVTOM International voice teacher of mix to train me more precisely on the scientific aspect of the voice.

Piano lessons in Angers, 8 years of experience
I give piano lessons for all levels, students without any musical concept or confirmed, from 3 to 80 years old. I adapt my teaching to the character, work time and taste of each, combining progress and pleasure. I include the main notions of solfeggio and harmony during lessons and in a fun way. My goal is to convey my passion for piano and music and I constantly question my pedagogy so that my students are as satisfied as possible. I can also teach solfege lessons alone, piano support, musical awakening for the youngest and in the history of classical music. I have been teaching piano at home for 8 years, including many children of all ages. I also did group workshops in primary schools in Paris. So I'm used to children, even younger ones, and I'm very patient. I can motivate an adult, beginner, in recovery or with higher goals, and give confidence to my students so that they can fully develop in their instrumental practice. I currently teach in the Paris region, but I will move to Angers at the end of the 2018/2019 school year. Classical pianist of 28 years, I started the music at 6 years old. Having first graduated from other fields (chemical engineering and archeology), I returned to my primary passion for teaching this passion full time. I have a DEM (Diploma of Musical Studies) end of conservatory curriculum obtained at the Conservatory of Clamart (92) with a mention TB. I attended classical piano lessons with Gohar Zorikian (1st prize in Armenia), chamber music, solfege, analysis, jazz piano, choir, music history and classical dances. contemporary conservatory.

I was fortunate to have varied teaching experiences: - music theory for children and adults, - musical awakening from 3 years, - harmony for professional composers, - piano for beginners from 5 to 80 years, - piano for intermediate or advanced students or piano rehearsals after long periods of stopping, - support courses in addition to the conservatory.
