Piano Lessons in English and Spanish for Children and Adults. At your home, via webcam or at the teacher's location in central Zürich

My name is Clara and I'm a classically-trained pianist and a piano teacher. I offer piano lessons in English or Spanish for Children and Adults (from 4-70 years old).

My personal mission is to keep you motivated and committed to playing the piano. With this purpose, I use a method adapted to each student, taking into account what you want to achieve and what you like. In my classes, you will learn music comprehensively. My personalized lessons do not only focus on repertoire, but also on music theory, sight-reading, ear training, improvisation, and composition.

You will be able to express yourself through playing several styles of music, creating performances full of artistry and musicality, and also to create their own music. You will also learn music history through extra group appreciation lessons and play four hand duets with other students or me. You will learn while having fun and will become a well-rounded and knowledgeable musician.

You will:

-Play and read songs from different styles quickly, working at the same time on piano technique, sight-reading, and musicality, and enhancing your talents. Do you want to play the songs that you like? Do you want to play for your family and friends? The goal is for you to enjoy playing the piano and to be able to play the pieces you like soon!
-Lose your fear of music theory by studying it applied to the pieces that you learn.
-Write your own songs, improvise and train your musical ear.
-Learn several styles of music, starting from a classical approach and taking into account your preferences.
-Play four hands duets with me, other students, or a family member.

About Me

My name is Clara and I'm a classically-trained pianist and a piano teacher. I fully dedicate myself to my mission: to play the piano and transmit my passion for the piano through teaching. Nothing makes me happier than being able to give students a lifetime of music-making through the piano.
They say, “all you need to learn piano is talent and motivation”, but I believe there’s more to it than that:
-I believe strong foundations create great pianists. Through my classes, I aim to give my students the techniques they need to practice correctly and create performances with plenty of musicality, confidence, and passion.
-I believe commitment, discipline, and effort are the clues: motivation and talent are not enough. That's why I'm my students' coach during their learning process.
-I believe in the powerful tool that the piano is for self-expression, communication, and mental well-being. The piano is more than just a beautiful instrument: it is a way of life.
-I believe in the importance of sharing your passion and your successes, and setting goals that make you feel focused and keep track of your progress.
So I have one mission... making music part of your life!

Education

I did a Bachelor of Music in Spain and completed a Master in Musical performance and research. I also obtained an Artist Diploma. In parallel to completing my piano formation in several piano masterclasses and piano courses, I have focused my work on performing as a soloist and as a member of several chamber music formations and teaching students from different ages and levels.

Experience / Qualifications

I have a broad experience in teaching in English and Spanish in music conservatories and music schools. I work with students between 4 and 70 years old.

Reviews (2)

Clara is very professional and a great teacher. After only one lesson I already feel equipped to play more musically and intelligibly. She gives great tips on how to practice at home.
The first lesson with Clara was really great. She is so passionate about teaching and tailors everything in the lesson to your goals and music taste. Communication was great, especially after the lesson, where she sends feedback and exercises to keep you motivated through the week. I am really looking forward to continuing the lessons with her!

Mein Name ist Margarita. Ich bin Absolventin des Moskauer Konservatoriums und HEMU du Lausanne. Ich unterrichte jetzt seit 8 Jahren Geige. Ich unterrichte sowohl Anfänger als auch Fortgeschrittene. Das Alter meiner Schüler muss 3 Jahre betragen. Meine Schüler sind Gewinner von internationalen Wettbewerben. Ich gebe sowohl Einzelunterricht und auch mit kleinen Schülern (3-6 Jahre) Gruppenunterricht (wenn sich die Schüler in einer Stadt befinden). Mit den Schülern spielen wir gemeinsam eine Vielzahl von Stücken und lernen, im Ensemble zu spielen. Ich unterrichte nach meiner Methode und verwende auch die Suzuki-Methode und andere. Beim Musikunterricht mit Kindern unterrichte ich auch Theorie und Fähigkeiten im Notenlesen, und meine Schüler komponieren seit der ersten Unterrichtsstunde. Mein Unterricht fördert das musikalische Gehör, das Rhythmusgefühl, die Intonation der Stimme und die Koordination der Bewegungen. Außerdem fördere ich die Aufmerksamkeit, das Gedächtnis und das Denken der Schüler. Ich unterstütze alle kreativen Initiativen meiner Schüler. Glückliche Gefühle, Interesse und Produktivität sind meine Unterrichtsziele.

Piano Lessons Klavierstunde درس بيانو Music Musik موسقى
Melodie und Rhythmus gehören zu unserer Natur und die Musik ist ein Mittel, welches uns spirituell bereichert und uns näher zu unserem wahren selbst bringt. Es gibt keine «richtige» Methode welche uns allen gleichermassen passt. Der eine Schüler legt mehr Wert auf das intuitive Spiel, während der andere genau bis ins Detail verstehen möchte was in den Noten steht und seine Technik richtig aufbauen und erweitern möchte. Es ist wichtig, dass der Schüler von Anfang an von allen Aspekten des Klavierspiels eine Ahnung haben möchte, wie z.b. Blattspiel, Theorie, Gehörbildung und weitere Techniken zum effizienten Üben, denn das trägt dazu bei, dass der Schüler früher unabhängig wird. Stilrichtungen: Barock bis Modern. Da ich noch in der Ausbildung bin, erwarte ich Anfänger bzw. Fortgeschrittene Anfänger. Für mehr Harmonie im Klavierspiel benötigt es Übung (intelligentes Üben), denn Übung macht den Meister.
