Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)

The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing!

The class duration: You can choose!
20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old)
30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old)
45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners)
1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory)


I use different methods depending on:
1) The goals of my student
2) The language that we will use on class
3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Extra information

For our class you will need a Skype account, or we can do it with Google Meet, you will choose.
Don't worry about the development of the lesson :) I will explain you everything as many times as you need it. Also, you will be able to see me and hear me very well, as the studio is provided with multi-cameras and microphones!

About Me

Hello!
I'm Gema, a piano teacher with +10 years of experience. I've worked with children mostly, but also with adults. In fact, my first experience as a teacher/conductor was in a Senior Choir, where I first learned how to conduct choirs in a professional way. Concerning my experience with kids, I really started to teach children around 7 years ago. My youngest piano student is currently 3 years old. I really like to teach small beginners, as everything for them is a fun exploration game. Something I also enjoy very much, is to work with students from different parts of the world, learning about their culture and their languages. That's why I will give you the choice to practice 4 languages with me: Spanish, Galician (very close to Portuguese), English and French (German is still on its way).
During these last years, I've been combining my activity as a teacher with the concerts (played in several countries in Europe). Thanks to this COVID situation (at least I could get something good out of it) I've been able to focus on online teaching. All these months of isolation have given me the result of being provided with a great audio/video system. That's why if you try a lesson with me, you will be able to see multiple cameras and microphones, aswell as the score of the piece that we will be working on :)

I was worried about my first online course. In the end, the contact went very well. Gema is a great teacher with whom I look forward to continuing my piano learning

My son loves Gema. She made herself very approachable. The lesson was fun. My son can’t wait to have the second lesson with Gema!
My experience right now with Gema is that she's an amazing teacher and she is good at spotting mistakes on your keys and helps me to play with confidence to get ready to pass my exam.
Very good teaching

Classes with Gema are awesome. I can't ask for more. I love his joy and spontaneity. The sessions are difficult but she manages to channel me and motivate me to focus on the tasks to be done. The techniques are simple that she gives. I am so delighted and honored to know her as a kind-hearted person. And I am very happy with the services which are much more than I expected. My experience is quite recent. The piano came to me in 2018 after a trip to Italy and then I started lessons in 2019. A whole journey with difficulties finding a teacher during this health crisis that we are all experiencing together. Thank you Gema thank you music is life. She helps me get better every day. Kisses

Spanish Guitar lessons in A Coruña, all styles and the possibility of singing mentorship too
With a full degree in music (classical guitar) and with almost 20 years of experience teaching I offer private guitar lessons in the center of Barcelona. You will set your pace of learning. I will propose easy mechanical exercises just to start having contact with the instrument and, at the same time, you will be playing the songs you love adapted by me to each level. Every style is possible and each method would be agreed. If you are keen on singing while playing, I can offer you some vocal techniques too. Check my profile and request a first class just to know me and decide if you will go on. Language classes: English and Spanish. Best regards

Virginia
Cello classes, musical language or theory. Made to measure and at home
Cello teacher with training and work experience. Specialized in general cello learning, in addition, orchestral repertoire work and chamber music. My methodology is very varied. I keep in mind that there are many people who want to learn to play the instrument without professional goals and therefore I will always focus on advancing content through personalized music for each student. Satisfaction is high both mine to see the progress of my students and theirs, since they are still my students !!

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.

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.

Making Music Fun: Learn Violin, Singing, or Piano!
Billy Joel said, "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." This, too, is something I believe in, and I wish to share my own love of music with prospective students. I offer violin, voice, and piano lessons to students of all ages. Lessons range from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on student's level. I believe in meeting students where they are at, so we will work together to find goals and objectives that suit you. (Or, if you have no goals and simply want to make some noise, that's good too!) I hope to inspire students to find their own voices and delve into their creativity.

César
Learn music in a simple, fun way and at your own pace.
You will learn singing, piano, guitar or musical language (You choose) at your own pace. From scratch (0). You do not require experience or previous knowledge. Just desire to learn and constantly improve. Do not be afraid. Ask and dare to do something new.

Cheslava
Piano and Singing tutor with 5 years experience and professional education
From my childhood I have been studying music and art: sang in choir and solo, played piano, painted, studied music history and literature, solfeggio. Later in college I have also learned choir conducting, had ensemble and choir singing lessons, cultural studies. During last year in university I had pedagogy practice at university and at private art school (where I worked as a music tutor before the war - piano, voice). I truly enjoyed working with students. They all were different age (8 - 40+ years old) and level. But all were very interesting and work was pleasant. My education was very various: my core subjects were conducting, choir, voice, piano. So it allowed me to work with children, teens and adults with quite wide range of interests and needs: some students needed/wanted to learn particular composition(s), sometimes pop songs arrangements, some were interested in “introduction” to the music, some wanted to renew skills they gained in their childhood and continue their journey to the music world. In addition I prepared presentations (which contained information about cultural and historical background and musical and character/art analysis). So after graduation from choir conducting faculty (which allowed me to deepen my knowledge in many important compatible branches) I concentrated on studying classical singing and piano, expanded my cultural studies and analysis knowledge, practiced solfeggio and harmony.

Composing Music using computer software (any genre)
Composing your own music has always been a very rewarding task. This has never been so true as the present day when you can hear what you compose instantly by using computers to generate and play back your own music. However, to ensure that your music sounds really great there are many principles to be considered. I have had a great interest in composing for over 40 years, composing in a wide variety of styles. Having been a music teacher in a comprehensive school for over 30 years, I have had a lot of very relevant experience in teaching composition to a wide range of different ages and abilities. The class will be personalized to your particular standard and chosen style of composition. If you are a complete novice and have not used computers to create music we can use a web-based programme or a free downloadable programme. On the other hand, if you are familiar with a particular programme that you have installed on your computer we can work through screen sharing and sound sharing to enhance your compositions using my experience. I will tailor-make the class to suit you.
