About Me

Music and teaching are my passion.
I am both a performer (organist) and a French Music Conservatory Professor.
I teach two subjects I love: Organ Performance and Formation Musicale (sort of a Musicianship or Ear Training course that would go up to a high graduate specialized level).
I have taught extensively, at all levels.
I pioneered live online musicianship lessons in France in 2011, and was since led to teach online in Europe, Asia, the U.S.A., and Madagascar.
I believe that the best qualification for a teaching individual is this: Being able to understand students and help them progress.
If you have a difficulty, nothing pleases me more than rising up to the challenge and helping you succeed.
My approach to teaching is not dogmatic, but rather pragmatic, empirical, and based on neurosciences when possible. I am not choosing methods or teaching tools because they are old or new, but I am choosing them (old and new) if they work for YOU.
So, I hope I will help fostering your progress soon!
Sincerely,
YOUR Prof.

Education

I have been trained in Europe and in the United States. I was awarded a Lurcy Scholarship (Fulbright-France partner) given annually to six French citizens for study in the United States.
A graduate of the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester with a Master of Music in organ performance and literature, I am also a graduate of the Nancy and Metz Conservatories, with degrees in musicianship (ear training), organ, harpsichord, and baroque chamber music performance.
I also won the First Prize in supérieur level at the 1996 "Concours International d'Orgue de Lorraine," president of the board of examiners: Marie-Claire Alain.

Experience / Qualifications

Concert artist since 1996.
Passionate teacher since 2000.
Music Professor since 2009.
Pioneer of live and real time online Musicianship lessons in France (since 2011).
Accredited with the equivalence of the French C.A.* in both Organ Performance and Musicianship by the French Ministère de l’intérieur, de l’outre-mer et des collectivités territoriales in March 2013.
* The C.A. (Certificat d’Aptitude) is the highest teaching certification for teaching music in French conservatories.
Published a Musicianship book in 2015 entitled "L2015 Leçons des premières années de solfège - formation musicale."
And yet, as previously stated, beyond experience and qualifications, I believe it is the ability and the joy to understand and effectively help the person you teach that makes someone a qualified instructor.
Music is a passion. Teaching is another. It is therefore my responsibility to share the first while satisfying the second. :) TEACHING... it's a beautiful human adventure where we learn, where we instill, and even where we advocate things. In doing so, we cannot escape our musical and human values. What does a very good teacher accomplish? What qualities (musical and human) are necessary to make a teacher a very good teacher? What is good progress? What are the steps to remember when training a student's ear? What are the steps not to be omitted in the transmission of rhythm? How can we really help students read notes well? How to develop virtuosity? How to make a correct diagnosis? What is the place of music theory, technical exercises, etc.? These are a lot of interesting questions... I will be very happy to help you and share the results of my research and my practice as a music training teacher, teacher. organ, and chamber music, whether on a specific point, or to develop an entire program. I talk about what I know and what works with the students. If you want something that works in practice, then I've got you covered! This is what I am passionate about and what I like to share. On the other hand, I do not specifically prepare for teaching competitions. I also do not wish to lock myself into lunar discussions which have no practical outlets... Looking forward to sharing with you, FM
Beautiful Rhythm is both precise & expressive. For the musician, it needs to be clear in both the mind & the body. Whether you are a beginner or a professional seeking help, I will be here for you. I teach the theory of rhythm and its practice. I can provide an all-encompassing progressive approach, or some training on a specific music piece (provided the piece really is at your level). Basic rhythms, or complex rhythm found in music from the Renaissance to contemporary classical music... anything can be addressed. Again, Rhythm needs to be clear in your mind and your body, therefore the lesson will be tailored around you and the score. My students often tell me I am very patient. I'd rather say I am understanding and straightforward. Actually, please know that I am also demanding: While there is no difficulty that I cannot understand, (and I found it thrilling to find a solution when the student seems stuck) yet I am not interested in approximation. If after reading this, you are still interested, please drop me a line! I am here to share my passion with you! Sincerely, YOUR Prof. PS: I use fixed DO solfège (French way), but if you don't that's okay! All levels (from beginners to graduate students and professionals). All ages. Lessons last 45 minutes (at least). When am I available? Please drop me a line and we will try and find a time for you.
All levels (from beginners to graduate students and professionals). All ages. When? Please drop me a line and we will try and find a time for you. Listening to several voices at once certainly is one of the most rewarding skills a musician can have, or can acquire. And, no, this is not only for those who are born with this gift. If you listen to music without being able to discriminate precisely the different layers of sound, you already know music is beautiful. I was like that a couple years ago. (Well, provided my gray hair, it must actually be many years ago). I can surely say that being able to listen to several voices at once has brought me much joy! Music became absolutely wonderful! When you can precisely hear the various voices, then you become aware of all the notes that are played, as if some nice new lights were shed on the music. Not only can you enjoy the music more, but as you play you can now shape all the voices in the best possible way, or if you play a duo for instance, you can be sensitive to the way the other musician plays, and musically respond to his or her interpretation. As a musician, that is a life-changing experience, a “must!” That can be learned, slowly but surely, with method. Now, when I say slowly but surely, I talk about mastery. But if we are talking about being able to listen for the first time to an additional note at once, this is usually quite quick (I'd say one lesson, two weeks at most). So, what can we work on? Harmonic intervals, recognizing chords, discriminating notes within a 4 voice chord or aggregate (i.e. hearing the precise voicing of an isolated chord), learning to listen to counterpoint precisely, you name it. That should be based on where you are at, and what you would like to achieve. Anything is possible. Let's talk about it and get started! Although perhaps you want to know this first: My students often tell me I am very patient. I'd rather say I am understanding and straightforward. Actually, please know that I am also demanding: While there is no difficulty that I cannot understand, (and I found it absolutely thrilling to find a solution when the student seems stuck) yet I am not interested in approximation. If after reading this, you are still interested, please drop me a line! I am here to share my passion with you! Sincerely, YOUR Prof. PS: I use fixed DO solfège (French way), but if you don't that's okay!

Denise
Singing classes for all age students and different vocal styles (pop, folk or classical) Online or Offline in Vienna
Dear students: My name is Denise and I'm a professional singer with a singing master's degree from Catalonia's Music College (ESMUC) specialized in Historical Singing, Musicology and Music Education. My experience runs mostly in early and classical music with an active performing life, nevertheless I also have the experience and knowledge of popular musical styles such as Latin-American folk, jazz and musicals. As a docent or vocal coach I've collaborate with different academic institutions and private artistic projects, focusing mostly on international students or social integration programs. I have years of experience teaching children, teenagers and adults in both Latin-America and Europe, therefore understanding different appreciation levels and needs. My main goal is to help the student discover her or his voice while enjoying making music. **Class suggestions and indications** No experience is needed just bring your enthusiasm and favorite music. Classes can be given either in English, Spanish, French or Deutsch. There are no limit for styles, bring your favorite music and I will provide a safe environment for your personal and musical growth. For Children I strongly recommend the 45 min class since their attention span and body development is different from an adult. Feel free to contact me in case of further questions. I hope to read from you soon and to make music together. All my best, Denise P.S. My schedule is mostly a suggestion since I'm constantly editing and adapting to a work schedule, please feel free to send me a message regarding your schedule needs and suggestions in order to give you the best service.

Getting to Grips with Music Theory is simpler than you think!
The theory of everything tends to be really scary and music theory can be too. I am very keen to make music theory easy for everyone. For some people there is only one way to tackle the unmentionable but I believe there are many different approaches and one of them will click with you. It is simply finding out what is best for each person. Once we find the key we can unlock the problems that have puzzled you for ages. Music theory needs to be more than a requirement, it needs to be the way to really appreciate the music you are playing. If you struggle with music theory then this is the class for you - why not give it a try?

In this violin course you will learn a foundation in learning one of the most rewarding instruments in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Grip the bow, hold the violin, have the perfect hand position and enjoy playing the strings while learning how to read the notes, the violin rhythm and technique. Students will generally learn better if they feel a connection developing with their teacher, whether that’s through humour, showing care about their development, or making sure teacher devote time equally to all students when in a group. You will not regret. 😊
