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 :)

Reviews (7)

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.
Tres bonne pédagogie
Les cours avec Gema sont géniaux. Je ne peux pas demander de plus. J'aime sa joie et sa spontanéité. Les partissions sont difficiles mais elle arrive à me canaliser et à me motiver pour me focuser sur les tâches à faire. Les techniques sont simples qu'elle donne. Je suis tellement ravie et honorée de la connaître comme personne de coeur. Et je suis très contente des prestations qui sont bien plus que ce que je pensais. Mon expérience est assez récente. Le piano est venue à moi en 2018 après un voyage en Italie et puis j'ai commencé en 2019 des cours. Tout un cheminement avec des difficultés à trouver un professeur pendant cette crise sanitaire que nous vivons tous ensemble. Merci Gema merci la musique c'est la vie. Elle m'aide à aller tous les jours mieux. Bisous
Gema is an enthusiastic and outgoing teacher.She really gave me a lot of support and made me feel warm!!!
My daughter loves her

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 !!

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!

Jappe
Music theory for any level to understand the language of music
In this class I teach music theory for those who want to understand the language of music. Once you know the basics, you can apply this to any instrument. There is no basis level or knowledge needed, we can start from the beginning or fill in the blanks on where you are struggling to get the full picture.

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.

Juan
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.

Alethea
Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Piano lessons, Music Theory for children and adults
I am a composer/pianist with a master's degree in composition at the Royal Conservatoire Den Haag. I am offering Piano Lessons as well as Music Theory with 5 years of experience and recognition of success from my students. 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). I am also preparing students for ABSRM exams as well as any kind of piano/music qualifying exam. THESE ARE THE TOPICS YOU CAN LEARN: Piano (classical, jazz) Improvisation Jazz harmony with voice leading Songwriting

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.
