About Me

I am a teacher in classical piano with fifteen years of experience in piano teaching, I have taught broad categories of students, from piano pedagogy for children to bachelor-master’s advanced students, including specific training for piano repetitors and “reading the score” for conductors, always adding parallel insights into music theory, era-aural training, and analysis. My students have successfully passed ABRSM exams, conservatories and university exams, having gained recognition in musical contexts and competitions.
My teaching methods provide a unique and encouraging style that combines traditional, historical piano techniques acquired from Italian conservatories and academies with modern pedagogical aspects achieved in Switzerland in 2010 through my master’s coursework. Comprehension and perception determine the personal quality in the design of my lesson plans; thus, I react intuitively to the specific needs of each student.

Education

I was a pupil of the Italian teachers generation who were all direct disciples of Carlo Zecchi and the Neapolitan piano schools. In 1997-1998, while attending a specialization course with Sergio Fiorentino in Marotta, Italy, I graduated in pianoforte at the Conservatorio G.Rossini di Pesaro.
I spent many years furthering my piano post-graduate education with Professor Sergio Perticaroli of Accademia Naz. S.Cecilia Roma, as well as participated in piano summer courses in Italy with Franco Scala, Joaquin Achucarro, Leslie Howard, David Bradshaw and Cosmo Buono, and participated in masterclasses with Jürg Wittenbach and Vladimir Ashkenazy. After graduating with a Master of Art in Music Piano Pedagogy degree in Switzerland in 2010, I was accredited as a piano professor at the Kalaidos Music University in Zürich in 2016.

Piano Lessons For All Levels & Ages | Explore, Learn, Achieve
I teach beginning and advanced aspiring pianists of all ages (3+) with a focus on immersing students in the magical world of music and getting the best possible quality out of them by challenging to achieve more than assumed possible. Music is a soul-enriching experience and developing musical skills can be a great gift for a lifetime. With solo piano performance degrees from the Royal Academy of Music (London) and the Universität der Künste (Berlin) I am a highly qualified award-winning concert pianist with almost 20 years of teaching experience and a passion for education. My musical learning was also furthered by postgraduate musicological studies at Royal Holloway and serious interests in philosophy, religions, history, civilization, literature, poetry, law, languages as well as many other things. I loved my musical journey which included not only piano but also composition, the violin, recorder, flute, harpsichord and clavichord from childhood onwards. In the last two decades, teaching has been giving meaning to my life and I enjoy helping others to find fulfillment as well as joy in their learning. My teaching approach is comprehensive, builds up confidence and incorporates a multidisciplinary orientation thanks to which students get promptly enthused over their learning. There is a focus on enhancing musical understanding, developing or improving reading skills, building up technique, expanding repertoire in a healthy way and foundationally preventing or sorting out injuries as well as pain-related problems. Although my teaching style is primarily quality-oriented with regards to skills, I believe that happiness, confidence, results and a sane sense of achievement are important components to balance in holistic education and offer a non-judgemental, patient, kind, equality-oriented, multicultural environment in which learning can thrive. I encourage students to perform in concerts, festivals, exams and competitions. Many have won prizes in numerous competitions and passed exams with distinctions. Others have improved their technical skills as well as understanding of music, thus opening more doors and finding professional opportunities in the world of music.

Piano and vocal - singing teacher. All levels are acceptable! We will achieve any level you want
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 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.

Querflöten-, Keyboard-, Theorie- und Gehörbildungsunterricht auf Deutsch /Englisch /Chinesisch
Schöne Grüße! In den letzten zehn Jahren habe ich es genossen, Musik durch Flöte, Blockflöte, Bratsche, Keyboard, Klavier, Cello und Theorie sowohl in Einzel- als auch in Gruppen zu unterrichten. Als Multiinstrumentalist halte ich es für wichtig, dass die Schüler nicht nur technische Fähigkeiten auf ihren Instrumenten entwickeln, sondern auch kreativ mit Musik umgehen. Neben meinen Bachelor-Leistungen in Auckland und meinen Master-Studiengängen in Deutschland habe ich Pädagogik auch studiert. Ich bin ursprünglich in Taipeh geboren, kenne Kulturen aus verschiedenen Kontinenten und unterrichte gerne auf Englisch, Deutsch und Chinesisch. Sie können gerne mich kontaktieren wenn Sie Interesse haben. Ich freue mich Ihnen helfen zu können.

Piano lessons for children/adults, beginner/intermediate
Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.
