Saxophone, Flute and Piano Private Tutoring Lessons.

Born in Setúbal, Portugal, Diogo commenced his musical studies at the age of ten at the CRS ('Conservatório Regional de Setúbal') in Portugal, from which he was awarded Grade 8 in saxophone.
He also has a vast field of working in an orchestral setting, since 2010 I have been doing a lot of internships, such as the 3rd Internship of Palmela Wind Band (Palmela/Setúbal/Portugal), in April 2010; the Wind Orchestra Internship of the Metropolitan School (Lisbon/Portugal), in April 2011; the 5th Symphony Orchestra Festival Art & Cult (Figueira da Foz/Portugal), in July 2012; the 2nd Edition LisbonFilmOrchestra (Valada do Ribatejo/Portugal), in March 2013; the Grand Union Orchestra (Oundle/United Kingdom), in August 2014 and the 1st Internship of the "Ensemble" Symphony Orchestra (Fátima / Portugal), in September 2014, among others.
In 2014, Diogo was accepted for undergraduate studies at ESART (‘Escola Superior de Artes Aplicadas’) in Castelo Branco, Portugal, under the tuition of Carlos Canhoto. For his final recital at ESART, Diogo received an outstanding classification of 18 marks (out of 20).
Back in Portugal, Diogo participated in several masterclasses with names such as Claude Delangle, Mario Marzi, Henk Van Twillert, José Massarrão, James Houlik, Artur Mendes, António Felipe Belijar, Alexandre Doisy, Hélder Alves, Albert Julià, Jean-Yves Fourmeau, João Pedro Silva Nicolas Prost, Otis Murphy, Michel Supera, Jerome Laran, Fernando Ramos and Timothy McAllister.
In 2018 Diogo was awarded the May Edwards Prize for Music and in 2019 his quartet "Alaw Saxophone Quartet" was awarded with the Woodwind Plus Ensemble Prize from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
In July of 2019, Diogo finished his Master's Degree in Music Performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, under the tuition of Gerard McChrystal.

During my time at ESART ('Escola Superior de Artes Aplicadas') in Portugal, I also had the opportunity to gain teaching experience at a music school in Castelo Branco for two years. I found that this teaching project was very important to me, not only on the instrumental and technical side but also on the personal side.
As a music teacher, I have thought about and worked hard to develop methods and approaches for working with my students. My firm belief is that one size does not fit all, and while the goals and results are often clear the way to get there is personal and individual. I tailor my lessons to and with my clients in mind - because I care. This personalised approach is married to good quality instruction, ensuring that the basics are taught correctly and with the student's age, style, goals and capacity being considered. I work hard to provide this. I am also open to feedback, clarification, and change in order to get the balance right and encourage an open discourse with our students and student’s parents about this.
Recently in the United Kingdom, I have been developing my teaching work and experience at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff since September 2017, with several students obtaining great results in ABRSM Graded examinations.

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 (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, 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 (97/100 for voice and 90/100 for piano). Besides, I am a holder of DipABRSM piano performance certificate and ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have been giving private singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 3 to 50 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. Alongside with that, I spend a little time on every lesson for ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest of the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. For piano students who are at the beginning of their music journey, I use a lot of creative ways to teach basic knowledge such as rhythm and fingering. These creative ways include colorful presentation slides, arranging a tailor-made version of the songs they like and introducing fun games to keep them motivated. Each student will get something different because everyone is different. As an instructor of vocal masterclasses for choir students in Hong Kong, I see myself as the person who: -- opens the door of fundamental vocal techniques for the students; -- influences them to be confident; -- shows them the beauty of human voice and vocal music; -- teaches them to embrace the others without judgement. My way and attitude of teaching was proved to be successful with a lot of positive feedback. I tend to plan my classes in detail, and give notes to students every lesson. In this case, the students can follow the lessons easily and make the best out of their time. I do not make my students always say "yes" and "okay", I like to work with them and they are always welcome to tell me their needs. Since I grew up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong (Belilios Public School) and I have a lot of English-speaking students, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

Piano lesson for beginners and advanced students - all age levels
I am a Vietnamese pianist and I would love to share nice music to you with a friendly environment. I have finished my Master in piano specialisation in Royal Conservatory of Liège, and now I'm following piano accompaniment in Royal Conservatory of Brussels. During my studies, I have joined many concerts, making some recording, also working in both classical and contemporary music. Combining my 10 years of experience in teaching, I would be happy to share all my knowledge and enjoy the music together!

Piano Lessons for Beginners and Amateurs. Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Own Compositions.
I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master's Degree at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 6 years now, I have been teaching students of all levels between 5 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!

Lei
Piano Lessons, Music Theory, Aural Training and ABRSM Exam preparation
I have studied Piano Performance and Musicology at top universities in the UK and graduated with distinction. I have 6 years of teaching experience and an ABRSM Diploma certificate for Piano Performance. I design different lesson-plans for every single student depending on their levels, learning modes, interests, and abilities. You or your child will learn to become a complete musician, with not only performance techniques but also other highly transformative abilities: sightreading skills, aural skills, theory knowledge and above all, good taste in music. My schedule is very flexible. All levels welcome.

Classical and pop piano lessons, music theory and solfège (Russian method of training perfect pitch)
I have been playing the piano since I was five. I graduated from a specialized music school in Kiev and now I am a student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I teach both, classical and pop music. I have a very positive approach in teaching and will try to generate a motivating environment, as I understand that learning piano can be frustrating for some! My goal is to help you enjoy piano as well as seeing steady progress.

Johnathan
Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own intrinsic passion to the music they enjoy.

Matthias
Private piano lessons for all ages & levels (also online)
My name is Matthias and I give private piano lessons to students of all ages and levels. Are you an enthusiastic beginner or do you want to pick up again after some time? Feel free to contact me for more information. Toddlers and preschoolers from 3 years old can take their first steps in the world of the piano. Young adults and adults are also very welcome! The piano lessons take place at my home in Beerzel, at your home in the Beerzel region or online via Zoom or Skype. Due to the corona crisis, taking piano lessons online has become popular, although it can still be done at home without a problem. I live a short distance from Putte, Berlaar, Heist-op-den-Berg, Bonheiden, Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Lier and Mechelen. During the lessons I will take into account specific wishes, such as preference for classical or popular music. I use a piano method suited to your age. No prior knowledge of music is required. I have been active as a pianist for more than 16 years. I graduated in 2018 as a Master of Music at the LUCA School of Arts in Leuven and from 2018-2019 I continued my studies at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna.

Learn the Art of Celtic Music on the Irish Flute
With me, you will have the opportunity to escape to "Celtic" country for a lesson There are several types of Irish flute: (Tin Whistle, Low Whistle, Irish Flute) I will make you discover the beauty of so-called "Celtic" music by explaining everything you need to know. * The basics of this instrument (positions, interviews, breath control, etc.) * The many Celtic Standards. Indeed, there are many more or less difficult songs, but nevertheless very melodious :) If you do not have a traditional Irish flute, during a first lesson, I will be able to guide you on which flute to buy. We will obviously take into consideration your different wishes So if you are ready to deepen your knowledge, I will be happy to teach you what I learned :) NB: If you have a Boehm type transverse flute (transverse flute used in Classical Music), it may take more time to familiarize yourself with Celtic Music. I mean by that that certain positions, certain fingerings will be more difficult to play because of the keys of the flute ... But don't worry, we will find a way to overcome this difficulty. :)
