Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Guitar lessons (acoustic & electric) for all ages
" UNIQUE " What if telling this story with music could be simple, fun and playful? Knowing how to share your inspiration, your feelings, your emotions, all of this through the guitar? This is what I offer you through my courses! It will be about laying the right foundations with the work of open chords, scales, but also playing expressions, the development of musical ear and gradually going into the depth of certain styles such as blues, funk, jazz, bossa nova, pop, rock to dissect other elements enriching guitar playing. Whether you have no experience or just a few days or weeks of practice, I will accompany you step by step, taking into account your level, keeping one thing in mind: having fun!

The lessons can be conducted in English 🇬🇧, Spanish 🇪🇸 , or Italian 🇮🇹 , ensuring accessibility for all students. Age and musical preferences are not limitations; with qualitative daily practice, rather than sheer quantity, progress can be swiftly observed. 💪🏼 🎶 My approach to classical guitar lessons is centered on tailoring them to each student's individual needs and potential. I prioritize fostering enthusiasm and motivation as primary tools for conveying technical and theoretical concepts, alongside a deep love for music. Lessons are open to students of all ages and skill levels. 🚀 The focus of the course revolves around the joy of playing music. Your favorite genres and pieces will take center stage, with a thorough exploration of their codes and secrets. Together, we'll delve into technical exercises and learn to play pièces of your choice or mine, enriching your repertoire and enhancing your playing style. 🤩 For example, we can reimagine pieces by applying advanced techniques such as the CAGED system, incorporating new chords, positions, and techniques like arpeggios and fingerstyle playing. This expands the instrument's capabilities and your playing skills, ensuring continuous progress and improvement. 👨🏻‍🏫 Upon request, the program also includes theoretical studies, which are presented in an accessible manner suitable for both beginners and experienced musicians. Exercises, pieces, and theoretical explanations are structured in a progressive order of difficulty.🔥 The theoretical program covers a range of topics, including guitar tuning, chord theory, scales and modes, finger picking techniques, strumming patterns, metronome practice, learning favorite songs, improvisation, harmony, melody, and rhythm theory.⚡️ Together, we'll embark on a musical journey tailored to your goals and aspirations, ensuring a fulfilling and enriching experience with the classical guitar.🔝☄️

Richard
Private guitar lessons for every level: from basic chords to out of the box improvisation
Hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, and pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. See you soon! Richard PS: my specified hours are a guideline, if this does not suit you, you can certainly send us a message and we will try to arrange something :)

Juan Alfredo
Music theory and harmony for beginners
In this class you will be able to learn different musical concepts that will help you expand your musical knowledge and skills in an applied way. It starts with baby steps and, depending on the student, the complexity gradually increases. It will be a pleasure to meet you and teach this discipline that I am so passionate about.

Yolitzin
Piano classes with a teacher with a specialty in pedagogy
My name is Yolitzin, and I have 11 years of experience teaching the instrument. The classes are dynamic and I try to nurture technique, theory, reading notes and mainly the love of music and the pleasure of playing the piano. If you are an adult, I will try to go at your pace according to your study times. If the classes are for children, we will try to encourage the habit of study so that the child grows with the discipline of practice and in a short time can successfully play their favorite pieces of music. The teaching approach consists of the student building their learning based on the experiences they obtain from classes and practice at home. I studied a second career focused on pedagogy, and currently I have a piano studio of more than 20 students who share a love for music and the piano. I organize recitals twice a year to encourage a complete artistic training. You will surely have a lot of fun!

Athanasios
Piano Lessons for All Levels | Technique, repertoire, and theory tailored to Your needs
I chose to teach piano driven by my profound love for music and the desire to help others find their expressive voice. My teaching philosophy extends beyond technique and repertoire to include the development of a deeper understanding of music through analysis, theory, and listening. I take into account the musical interests of my students, as everyone learns at their own pace and in diverse ways; my goal is to provide unwavering support tailored to your individual learning styles. I foster a friendly and open atmosphere in my lessons, opting for informal communication that promotes a sense of security, particularly beneficial for children. This approach encourages a self-directed development of their musical abilities. While I find joy in collaboratively setting goals from the first lesson, I equally value a relaxed approach that prioritizes the sheer enjoyment of making music.
