About Me

Since 2013 I have gained an extensive experience teaching students of all ages and abilities either privately or in specialist schools and universities. Within these appointments I have been responsible for teaching general musicianship, guiding students through the ABRSM grade exams, preparing students for competitions and public concerts and helping students with practice techniques in order to see week to week progress.

I tailor my lessons to the individual as I believe that this is one of the most important components of teaching one-to-one lessons as every student is unique and requires an individualised education to their needs and learning processes. It is important to have a balance between what ‘should' be learned in any curriculum and what ‘should’ be learned to gain a rounded musical education. I have always prided myself on my ability to apportion my time accordingly to tick both boxes, which is something I consider to be key in maintaining interest and enjoyment alongside syllabus and technical progress.

Aside from teaching, I perform regularly as a soloist and chamber musician. It is important to be able to demonstrate on the instrument during lessons as it inspires and motivates the student and provides them with a first hand reference point within the profession.

Violin and Viola Lessons - Learn a new instrument or improve your skills
I'm an experienced teacher, with students of different levels/ages. I enjoy the diversity of students and understanding of their different ways of learning and goals and for me, this is the best part of the job - to know an treat each student as a unique person that they are. You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with the teacher.

Rayan
Piano for all levels - develop confidence and inner singing
I offer piano lessons for all levels. 5 years of teaching experience in conservatories, music schools and in business. I have a very good contact with children. I am demanding but gentle and very patient. I believe that one learns by listening, I am present to allow this listening to be at the center of the course and thus accompany the student on the path of music. I adapt to the need, the desire and the receptivity of each one. The well-being of the student is essential for progress in confidence and joy. The development of listening to the inner song is at the heart of my teaching. For beginners: songs, games, improvisation, creation. The links with song and rhythm are very important to have a healthy foundation. The musical notions are approached gradually by experience then by recognition. Reading and writing are brought about by creation and musical composition. For the more experienced, polyphony and difficult passages can be approached with different tools, by awareness of harmony and melodic modes and polyrhythm. Sometimes it is enough to be aware of simplicity to overcome difficult passages. I push to go further in the quality of the interpretation with simple means to better understand the music and thus allow more expressiveness and freedom. I also offer improvisation, harmony, lessons in musical ensembles, especially vocal polyphony for children, and lessons for specific needs, for example just intonation for singers or other instruments.

I finished a music school and my speciality was the piano. I did an expanded course that lasted 13 years, 3-4 times per week and, of course, all included : sight reading, notation, music theory etc. Since 7 years old, I went to several national piano competitions all around the world every year until I was accepted at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute. There, I’m studying vocals and music industry in general. I won a lot of first, second, grand prices as marks of my achievements. I’m from Lithuania, I was working there as a private piano and singing teacher for a couple of years. During a gap year I took, I was teaching as well. My mum is a piano teacher, I was in this sphere for all my life. As I was teaching, I had international students from Germany and Italy. It makes me experienced in English language teaching. If you have any questions, I’m ready to answer and to teach you how to play from any level to any level you want. Klodele

Piano lessons at home. I am a 19 year old student in London having done 15 years of piano (including 8 at the conservatory)
You can have fun playing many pieces of all genres (classical, jazz, modern) while learning the basics of music theory in order to perfect the mastery of the instrument. The course aims to give the student the desire to play and progress at the piano. Obviously, my goal is also to support the student to help him refine his technique and his musicality.

I can also help with key musical skills including fingerboard harmony, technique, vocabulary, song/solo analysis, improvisation, music theory, ear training and sight reading.

Munro
Guitar Lessons for Beginners and Intermediates in London
I am a guitar teacher willing to travel around London. I used to teach guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, and drums in San Francisco. My style of teaching is hands on and not as book based as I believe that this approach generates a deeper interest and understanding of music than a book can bring. Lessons cover basic chords, technique, music theory, and songs (I can pre-learn a song for you). I am flexible when it comes to your musical, educational, and scheduling needs.
