Reviews (2)

Thao is an excellent teacher: energetic and patient, encouraging always and cheerful. She's great both with kids and adults (she teaches both me and my son). She gives honest and helpful feedback and clear explanations. I'm improving my practice in a way I couldn't have done by myself. And my son's motivation to play the piano is coming back thanks to Thao's good teaching skills, with the right dose of humour.
She is an excelent teacher! The feedbacks that I receive from her helps me to improve my performance skills at the piano! I really recommend her!

Piano lessons by experienced pianist and teacher, graduate of Frederic Chopin University of Music in Warsaw
Hello and welcome! Let me introduce myself and encourage you to take piano lessons today! As an experienced teacher, who give both private lessons and works as a teacher in music school, I managed to create my own way of tutoring, treating different students individually. It’s based on European and Russian traditions. I was a student of distinguished piano professors (prof. Maja Nosowska, who studied with Tatiana Nikolaieva in Moscow, prof. Alicja Paleta-Bugaj, prof. Nikolai Piatikov)) and took active part in masterclasses with pianists such as Andrzej Jasiński, Vincenzo Balzani, Edward Wolanin. I have master’s degree in piano performance from Frederic Chopin University of Music, as well as teaching certificate. I am widely experienced in piano performance - as a solo artist, as well as chamber music performer. I speak English fluently and have experience of teaching piano in English. I hope to find curious and excited students at every age. I will provide enjoyable and friendly atmosphere, as a basis to piano teaching. You can ask for my cv and other documentation.

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 passion to the music they want to play.

Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.
