Learn how to play the piano The beginner lesson ONE.

Lesson 1
This will be an introduction to the piano.
I will encourage the students to play some notes on the piano, and I will talk about the importance of time, and also the stave where different notes sit on the ledger lines.
This will involve playing a couple of notes, to begin with.
Due to the nature of online lessons, this will mean that there is more of an element of listening required by the students and also by myself.

About Me

I have been teaching in the locality of Croydon for the past 8 years.
I come from a musical background as my dad used to play the piano and the ukulele and also the clarinet.
I decided initially with the piano, then I dabbled with the violin and achieved grade 4 with merit.
However, my fondness was for the piano and I passed my initial grade one and then got the taste for it and managed to pass all my piano grades including grade 8.
I have very good musicianship as I can adapt to different styles of music on the piano because I have played in a disco band and done quite a few projects in the past.
I have accompanied students for their instrumental exams in the past.
I have taught Sunday keyboard classes at Sangeetha UK in Croydon where I developed very good relationships with the students and the team. Some of my students performed at the Sangeetha concert which was videod.
I really engage with the student and my existing students would happily testify to that as they feel reassured that I am there to help them.
Even though the online lessons are quite different and strange to start with, eventually everyone settles down and the learning begins.
At my home address I have two pianos one for the student and one for me and this can be of added benefit to the student.
It is important that the student enjoys the lessons and I always ask them if they have enjoyed it at the end.
I have public liability insurance and a Dbs which is on the update service for your peace of mind guaranteed.

Rhiain Awel
Professionally Trained Harp Teacher in South Croydon and Surrounding Areas
Learn to play the harp with professionally trained harpist! Whether you're a complete beginner, an advanced musician or somewhere in between my harp lessons can be tailored to harpists of all levels and ages. Every pupil is different and learn in different ways and I believe that it is important to identify what each student responds to in order to get the best results. A solid technique is crucial but instead of repeating various technical exercises which can be a bit tedious, I try to identify these techniques within pieces of music, helping them understand how good technique affects and supports their everyday learning, practicing and performing.

Zara
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 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!

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 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.

Klavierunterricht / Piano lessons. All levels are welcome to join.
In my style of teaching, I approach the challenges together with my students, working as a team. This way, the study progress allows for an individual pace while ensuring understanding due to frequent and implicit feedback. Having fun and learning exemplary pieces are considered as necessary as training technical fundamentals and musical understanding. The entire program is individually composed to meet each student’s interests and needs, so that any level and kind of student is ensured to find a fit. `` Learning the piano is a fascinating lifelong process. It can be compared to learning a new language from the very beginning, step by step. I love guiding students, who share the same passion with me through this wonderful experience of self-discovery. All levels and ages (6 -100 years old) are welcome to my class`

Improve your classical piano or music theory skills, or prepare yourself for music exams.
I'm a teacher with a master's degree in music, and I have played piano for at least 20 years now. As a musician I work in classical piano and composition. My classes are for anyone who wishes to improve his/her level on this instrument, or to learn it from scratch.

During the COVID-19 sanitary emergency, I only teach online classes,
