Piano Lessons with Experienced Teacher of 15 Years.

Piano is the perfect instrument for lockdown. It allows you to enter a personal world of creativity, emotion and focus - a world of discovery that is both rewarding and fun. With 88 keys a piano can play be a whole orchestra of parts, it can play chords, basslines, melody, harmony and counterpoint all together. It the ultimate vehicle in which to explore the landscape of music. The ultimate key to unlocking music's secrets.

My courses are tailor-made to suit the ambitions of my students. Whether you want to write songs, learn to read music, pass exams, learn theory, learn to improvise or just learn to play your favourite tunes, I am here to help and guide you to wherever you wish to be.

About Me

My aim in teaching music is to help a person to realise their own unique and specific potential: to become the musician that is waiting inside them. This means it is vital to teach what the student wants to learn and not what the teacher wants to force upon them. There are so many directions you can go in on the piano - those 88 keys contain infinite possibilities and infinite ways to express yourself, your tastes, your personality and your feelings. To help someone traverse their own musical journey and discover their path is very satisfying. It also means that I end up learning from them too, as I learn new styles and tastes and ways of thinking.

Lydia
Piano Lessons for Levels Beginner-Advanced, Classical and Contemporary styles
I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I am currently pursuing my third degree (Postgraduate Concertsoloist) at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, and have obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions.

From Jazz to Classical: Saxophone and Piano lessons in Amsterdam
Jazz Lessons in Amsterdam. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you love music and you feel the inner urge of learning it, I can help you out. I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical. After years of studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing and singing. Music is like language,so I start by teaching how to connect the voice with the instrument. In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I've been learning music since I was 3 years old and recently I've graduated with a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously, I've studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), Kunst Uni Graz (Graz), Temple University (Philadelphia). I'm a professional performer since 5 years ago and I've performed in several countries around the world.

Emanuele

PIANO LESSONS: What about learning how to play the piano?
Piano, the instrument used by the romantics to make their most beautiful music, but also by the most experimental and modern composers to create their amazing music. Isn't it a great instrument to play? With more than 5 years of experience teaching in music schools and 8 years as a private piano teacher, I developed an efficient and "fun"-focusing way to teach how to play the instrument. Every student is different, so also the way to play and learn shall be different, which makes every single lesson special and rewarding. I also offer the possibility of teaching in groups: if you want to know more about this option. I hope I become the teacher you want and need!

Ellen

Piano&Music Lessons by Aleksandra (Buenos Aires-London-Rotterdam)
Piano, harmony, music theory, aural training, arrangements and composition dedicated teacher. Vast experience with different ages and levels, preparation for international exams, auditions and competitions. "I am a superior piano professor and I have started teaching in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my home country, 8 years ago. Recently I was living in London, UK, where I worked as a full-time piano teacher in WKMT Piano Institute where I have trained and developed my pedagogic skills working with students from all around the world. This experience allowed me to mentor from professionals to early ages with very diverse backgrounds. These are the kind of experiences worth working for, and that confirm my engagement to my pedagogic aims. Building structures that fight to give a voice to the speechless is one of the values I learnt to care the most as a working woman, and that is the reason why I feel engaged with teaching music. Music is a tool to learn a whole different language and improve intelligence and creativity, no matter which is your background. Music is a way of finding how to express yourself in a specific language, and it is at the same time a fun and fascinating process. As a music teacher, I face a challenge every time I train a student, because learning music and learning piano implies a very personal developement. I continued this project in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where I became a Master of Music in World Music (Tango-Jazz Composition) at CODARTS University. I intend to keep sharing my knowledge and experience with new students."

It's a process! :) I play classical piano, and I usually direct my lessons in style, reading sheet music, rhythm, chords, musicality, understanding the scores in a musical sense, and not just notes on paper. I usually try to understand what each one needs to develop, it is a very particular process for each one and my role there is to show paths, concepts, ideas. I try to make the whole thing very personalized for each person's need. Ich lade Sie alle ein, Klavierunterricht in Friedrichshain zu nehmen.

Es ist ein Prozess! :) :) Ich spiele klassisches Klavier und leite meinen Unterricht normalerweise mit Stil, lese Noten, Rhythmus, Akkorde, Musikalität, verstehe die Partituren im musikalischen Sinne und nicht nur Noten auf Papier. Normalerweise versuche ich zu verstehen, was jeder entwickeln muss, es ist ein ganz bestimmter Prozess von jedem und meine Aufgabe besteht darin, Wege, Konzepte und Ideen aufzuzeigen. Ich versuche, das Ganze sehr individuell auf die Bedürfnisse jeder Person abzustimmen. Convido todos vocês a fazerem aulas piano de em Friedrichshain.

Geralmente tento entender o que cada um precisa para desenvolver, é um processo bem particular de cada um e minha função ali é mostrar caminhos, conceitos, idéias. Tento fazer a coisa toda bem personalizada para a necessidade de cada um.
