Piano lessons given by concert pianist with four postgraduate diplomas

Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after many years of experience in teaching at different levels and aspirations of students, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them.
Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns while getting to know basis of classical harmony.

I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master degree, as well as two different Postgraduate degrees and two different Concert musician diplomas in special program for gifted concert artists at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

Giorgos
I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Piano lessons for all ages and levels - Piano lessons for all
--- english below --- I am a Canadian and Greek pianist completing my graduate studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel. I offer personalized piano lessons in French, English and Greek for students of all ages and levels in a warm and friendly environment. During my studies I gained a lot of educational experiences in several countries by giving private lessons and teaching in music schools as well as in international masterclasses. My life as a musician has allowed me to collaborate with many musicians as a soloist, with orchestra, in chamber music concerts, accompanying singers in different musical genres, accompanying choirs and accompanying masterclasses. I propose to introduce this acquired flexibility into my musical teaching, in other words, the ability to adapt to the needs and interest of the student while having fun and making visible progress. I'm a 24-year-old Canadian and Greek Master's student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel offering individualized piano lessons in English, French and Greek to students of all ages and levels in a friendly and encouraging environment. Throughout my studies I have obtained plenty of teaching experience in multiple countries and languages giving private lessons, teaching at music schools and at International seminars. My life as a performer has allowed me to collaborate with many different people as a soloist with an orchestra, in chamber music concerts, accompanying singers in a variety of musical genres, accompanying choirs and as an accompanist of International masterclasses. It is this acquired flexibility that I wish to encompass in my teaching, the ability to adapt to the students needs and interests while having fun and making visible progress.

Piano lessons, composition, and MAO, home-based individuals
Hello, I am a pianist and composer. I offer private lessons piano and composition and MAO at home. I have 7 years of experience giving piano lessons, and I have proposed some strategies for different types of students. Are you a beginner? Are you afraid to enter the piano world? I offer you "flexible" songs for you, with simple harmony, maybe pop or classic. In this type, I would tell you how you can know and play as you want, it means, as you are a composer of this piece. Either you're a child or you're an adult, it's a chance to find out how you'll be in music. If the composer has chosen 1-6-2-5 progressions rather than 1-4-5-1, what does he mean and how are you going to interpret it? Have you played some time yet but still want to go further? Either the conservatory does not satisfy you enough, or does your teacher only tell you abstracts? When I was in the conservatory, very often, I heard that teachers say '' it's not music '' '' we have to sing '' but without clear explanations, without '' why ''. I have always thought, if you meet a doctor and ask him how you should do, he tells you that '' you must feel it '' '' you will find it '', will you stay with this doctor looking for another? For this guy, I like to introduce you to the possibilities of your pieces that you have played by time or why composers score like that. I always recommend, give composers a chance. I will explain why composers write them, with harmony (for example, chopin as master), equivalence between melody and harmony (Bach is genius in the case), use of bass (Beethoven), interpretation of epochs, yes, every era has its usual, for example, swing of jazz, the way to crescendo immediately shows at the end during classic, but gradually during post-romantic, it can reopen your eyes to Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Bach. Do you have a lot of experiences but you want to go further or produce your soundtracks? In this case, as I am also conductor, composer and I also do digital music. I can also show you some techniques that maybe you need in 2019. With DAW as Logic Pro X, either your tracks, Beethoven or Mozart Chopin Liszt ... or jazz. Language: French, English and Chinese If you are interested, it is with pleasure to give you lessons at home. I thank you for your reading. App

Cours de musique (formation musicale, harmonie classique jazz et pop/rock, histoire de la musique)
(FR au dessous) Music is universal. It's a truth we accepted, but we don't figure out how far it can go. After years of studying and professional activity linked to music, I discovered that the limits among different music genres is a mirage: there are more things in common between hip-hop, for example, and classical music than differences. That's why I offer lessons of harmony, music structure and forms and composition adapted to any concerns and interests. All levels. All ages. - (FR) La musique est universelle. C'est une vérité qu'on accepte, mais on ne peut pas s'imaginer jusqu'a quel point elle l'est. Après des années d'études et d'activité professionnelle dans la musique (classique, avantgarde et jazz) j'ai découvert que les limites entre les différents styles de musique ne sont qu'un mirage: Il y a beaucoup plus de ressemblances entre le hip-hop et la musique classique que de différences. C'est pour cela que j'offre des cours d'harmonie, structure et composition de musique pour tous les niveaux et complètement adaptées aux inquiétudes de l'élève. Si vous cherchez à avoir une visión unifié de la musique et comment être versatile en plusieurs styles, ne doutez pas à me contacter.

Elisavet
Inspiring violin lessons - all levels and ages welcome!
I am an enthusiastic professional violinist and teacher. I can teach you classical violin, folk songs from Greece and Middle East, as well as your favourite pop tunes and tunes of almost any other music genre! Being well classically trained, I can help you build a solid violin technique and prepare you for giving your best during important music occasions such as exams, auditions, concerts etc. Also, being member of pop - oriental bands with concerts around Belgium, France and Greece, having played with several classical and contemporary music ensembles and orchestras, as well as coming from a family of musicians, my lessons are ideal for students who want to learn to be at ease when they eventually make music with others. :) All pieces can be taught either by ear, music scores or BOTH!! Teaching you basic and/or more advanced music theory to facilitate your violin learning if you don't know yet how to read and write music, can be easily done! My personal experience with music psychology and body movement techniques for musicians have enriched my knowledge and teaching skills. Extra attention is given during the lessons to not only help you build a strong and steadfast technique and develop your music ear, but also to acquire a confident presence and attitude for when you play for others! All is being done with gentle care towards your body's physiology and feelings, and consideration of your learning style. :)) Finally, I'm at your disposal in between the lessons, answering to any questions you might have and offering you support and guidance with your new insights! :D

Classical Guitar, Music Theory lessons (all ages and levels)
Having obtained my diploma in classical guitar by the Municipal Conservatory of Patras, I deliver classical guitar lessons at any level (children and adults). Holding a Master Degree in the field of science (MSc, University of Patras), I perceive music as the perfect balance between art and mathematical thinking; this combination is a valuable equipment for a creative and mindsharp approach in education of music, too. Also, through my seven year teaching experience, I love introducing my students into the challenging, yet fascinating world of guitar performance, always taking into consideration each person’s special mentality and needs, as a matter of course.
