Classical and Jazz Piano, and Composition Tutoring

I am a composer, pianist, teacher, and researcher currently based in Berlin.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in jazz piano from the Conservatory of Vicenza, Italy, a Master and a PhD in composition from the University of Leeds, UK.
In 2011, I attained a scholarship as promising student of the Conservatory of Vicenza.
From 2006 to 2009 I was volunteer at a special needs-school, using music as a form of therapy. From 2013 to 2015 I studied Piano at the Conservatory ‘Prince Claus’ in Groningen, The Netherlands where I worked mostly as a performer. In 2019 my CD ‘Breaths’ was released by British label Another Timbre. My pieces have been broadcasted by Keith F’eM, Concertzender Radio, and Radio 3 and my scores have been published in IM–OS Improvised Music-Open Scores and THE MASS. I've been teaching piano, music theory, improvisation, and composition for 12 years now. When teaching I always attempt to organise targeted lessons that cover varying musical aspects depending on the students' skills and preferences.
I teach either online or at my place in Berlin, Mitte. I also offer engraving and arranging services.

Great teacher!
Very competent, friendly and patient teacher. Great learning experience!
The first lesson with Federico was great: attentive teacher, patient with kids, he gave us a creative, inspiring lesson!
Federico gave great jazz improv lessons and I learned so much each week. I had previous classical music experience and he adapted the lessons to suit my skill level and helped me improve a lot.

Native English piano lessons from experienced tutor
ENGLISH LANGUAGE PIANO TUTOR I have been teaching piano to adults and children for the past five years. I am currently accepting students of all levels: beginner, intermiediate and advanced. I prioritise the comfort and interests of my student in my lessons, while teaching fundamental technique and theory to give you the flexibility to learn the music you want to learn. I have a Diploma in piano performance from the British ABRSM assessment body: the most exacting standard in the country. 
QUALIFICATIONS:
 DipABRSM Piano Performance TEACHERS:
 B. Lucas Ogdon (London, UK) C. Tomlinson (Oxford, UK)

Kristóf
Professioneller Klavier- und Querflötenunterricht, Klassische Musik, Jazz, Pop, inklusive Musiktheorie an der Kreuzung Torstraße/Gartenstraß
[DEUTSCH] Ich bin fest davon überzeugt, dass guter Unterricht damit beginnt, dass man sich so weit wie möglich um die Bedürfnisse und Ansichten der Schüler kümmert, Sympathie übt und die Welt durch ihre Brille sehen kann. Der Schüler kann für den Lehrer genauso inspirierend sein wie der Lehrer für den Schüler. Der Unterricht kann individuell nach deinen Bedürfnissen gestaltet werden. Wir können besprechen, was Dich interessiert, was Du lernen möchtest, von Klassik oder Jazz bis hin zu populären Genres. Wenn Du bereit bist herauszufinden, welche Art von Reise und Fortschritt wir machen können, schreibe mir! [ENGLISH] I truly believe that good teaching starts with the maximal possible amount of caring about the student’s needs, point of view, practising sympathy and being able to see the world through their glasses at least as much as it is possible. The student can be just as inspiring for the teacher as the teacher can be for the student. When they happen to fit each other, their work bears fruit in no time! The lessons can be personalised based on your needs. We can discuss what you are interested in, what you would like to learn about from classical or jazz to popular genres. If you are ready to figure out what kind of journey and progress we can make, write me! Über mich/About me: [DEUTSCH] Ich bin ein 26-jähriger Musiker, habe meinen Master in Flöte in Ungarn gemacht, studiere Komposition an der Universität der Künste Berlin, gebe seit 6 Jahren Klavier-, Flöten- und Musiktheorieunterricht und gebe Nachhilfe in Mathematik. Ich bin ein Mensch, dessen ganzes Leben sich seit meiner Geburt immer um Musik dreht. Ich freue mich immer darauf, das Wissen der anderen zu teilen, gute Diskussionen mit aufgeschlossenen Menschen zu führen und neue Sichtweisen, neue Aspekte unserer Welt zu entdecken. Ich bin in einer Musikerfamilie aufgewachsen, meine Eltern sind Berufsmusiker in einem Sinfonieorchester. Seit meinem fünften Lebensjahr lerne ich Klavier und Querflöte. Als Kind wollte ich möglichst viele Instrumente wie Tuba, Fagott, Geige, akustische und elektrische Gitarre, Bassgitarre und Kontrabass, Akkordeon etc. ein wenig lernen. Am Ende wurden Flöte, Klavier und Komposition mein Profil. Ich habe viele verschiedene Konzerte organisiert und gespielt, die auf klassischer, zeitgenössischer, experimenteller, theatralischer, elektronischer, Jazz- und Popmusik, Free Jazz, freier Improvisation, grafischer Notation, Soundpainting , Performance Arts, Volksmusik verschiedener Völker und so weiter basieren. Ich bin begeistert, etwas Neues über jede Art von Musik zu lernen und Verbindungen zwischen den Musikstücken zu finden, die aus ziemlich unterschiedlichen Ursprüngen stammen. [ENGLISH] I’m a 26-year-old musician, completed my master’s degree in flute in Hungary, studying composition at Universität der Künste Berlin, having been giving piano, flute and music theory lessons and tutoring mathematics for 6 years so far. I’m a person whose whole life has always been around music since I was born. I’m always excited in sharing each other’s knowledge, having good discussions with open minded people and discovering new point of views, new aspects of our World. I grew up in a musician family, my parents are professional musicians in a symphony orchestra. I have been learning the piano and the flute since I was five years old. As a child I was eager to learn a little bit of as many instruments as possible such as tuba, bassoon, violin, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar and double bass, accordion etc. In the end playing the flute, the piano and composition became my profile. I have organised and played at a lot of different concerts based on classical, contemporary, experimental, theatrical, electronic, jazz and pop music, free jazz, free improvisation, graphical notation, soundpainting, performance arts, folk music of different peoples and so on. I get excited learning anything new about any kind of music and finding connections between the pieces of music coming from rather different origins.

Mykola
Piano and vocal teacher with unique methods of teaching.
I teach my students according to a methodology that is based on physiological training. It includes a new: playing technique - which provides rhythmically accurate sounding of all notes regardless of the finger you touch the key with, allows you to maximize the volume range, allows you to control the sound as much as possible and play very quickly; the method of teaching singing - allows you to teach proper breathing, sing with an open and covered sound, natural vibration, corrects diction, develops a sense of rhythm, hear and sing accurately, teach vocal speech: maximally lengthen vowel sounds and shorten consonants; the method of teaching reading from a sheet - allows you not to disassemble the works, but to play immediately as we read books, look at the notes and hear music; special exercises to relax the muscles and prevent flirting hands, clamping ligaments (bird).

Learn the guitar in a different and intuitive way
This course is above all there to make you want to play the guitar, let it be a pleasure! It will be based on the practice of the instrument, on the understanding and role of the guitar. The theory will be based on the progress of the practice. Step by step, practice and theory will thus be complementary, and will necessarily be useful! Have you always dreamed of being able to play the guitar? it's time to get started!

Meric
Ear Training for singers while improving technique
Hello! I am Meric jazz singer - musician - vocal coach and public speaking trainer. If you want to train your ear and sing those fancy notes, there is always an easy way to do that. But of course practice is vital. This class requires basic musical skills. So be sure that you are able to repeat (sing) that you hear.

Piano Lessons for Beginner-Advanced Levels in Classical and Contemporary Styles
I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. As a pianist 12 years of teaching experience and over 21 years of playing, 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. For example, in the last year my students have achieved highest marks in the ABRSM exams as well as prizes in various competitions. My own studies are as follows: I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received 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. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.

Online piano lessons for everybody: from any starting level with any set goal!
Learning to play the piano is a wonderful and very diverse experience! Every beginner has to go through it in their own special way in order to realize one's personal aspirations. But sometimes, unfortunately, due to a lack of guidance and direction, the learning process may cause some difficulties followed by unexpected disappointment. If you are in need of said guidance, if your learning experience is not that captivating or satisfying anymore, you don't have to turn away from your dreams of playing the piano - I will gladly help you to get closer to them in a fun and enjoyable way in our lessons! After finishing music school with the highest grades twice as well as a number of additional courses (improvisation, composition, orchestras, etc.) and after honing my teaching skills for more than 4 years, I can safely say that my lessons may prove useful to any type of student with any kind of given objective at hand. No matter your age, your previous experience, or background, you just need to name me your personal goal, task, or even a dream - be ready to dedicate a little time and effort, and I will take care of all the rest. Learning your favorite song, getting prepared for a concert, or simply improving the skills you already possess - in music, everything is possible and achievable, and I'll be more than glad to prove it to you in our lessons.

Piano Lessons with the Best Colombian Young Pianist!
Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia. I have a Master's degree from Liszt Ferenc in Budapest, Hungary, and a Master's degree from Columbus State University in the United States. Besides my career as a pianist, I have over 10 years of experience in teaching Piano, music theory, and history for all ages and categories. Even if you are a beginner we can make it! I have a personal method where I combine both classical and commercial repertoire depending on the student’s preferences. I usually play four hands with my students as well and organize at least one concert a year with all my students where they can meet and share their experiences. If you are an enthusiast about piano competitions, we can also work on that together. I will guide and support you through all the steps of the learning experience.

Learning music can sometimes be daunting, but I always find ways to cover the whole subject in a stimulating way, avoiding frustrating experiences as much as possible. HERE MY GENERAL APPROACH Learn as you like!!! - without pressure but with discipline - discipline with fun - acquiring knowledge without effort - explain complexity with easy ideas This is open to all ages especially for children (I develop a way to easily stimulate children when it comes to learning music).

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.
