Zigi
Jazz-trained multi-instrumentalist teaches piano, guitar, bass, drums, music theory & music production to all ages and levels, in English.
I have over 8 years of experience teaching piano, guitar, electric bass, drums, band coaching and music theory in a wide range of styles to all ages. I approach music tuition with the aim to instil a lasting appreciation of and enthusiasm for playing music, especially with kids and teens! With emphasis on improvisation and rhythmic awareness, my lessons not only prepare my students to play jazz and jazz-related genres but also teaches them to understand music more deeply than just notes on a piece of paper. A typical lesson involves a balance of technical warm-up exercises, sight-reading, improvisation and working through a tune of your choice. That said, we can work on whatever you want, I'm always happy for my students to guide the lesson. My students love my fresh approach to teaching and parents especially appreciate my flexibility with timing and travelling to their house. I can teach all instruments online or at your location, but only piano and guitar at my location. I look forward to meeting you!

Nikhil
Piano/Keyboard Lessons (Music Theory, Aural Training, Sight Reading, Composition and Performance)
Music is a globally recognised form of expression that connects everyone of us in one way or the other. As a musician, I have tried to inspire people from different walks of life to feel the joy and love for playing the piano and creating music. I have composed music for multiple bands, have played for choirs and have accompanied many influential artists. I cleared the Grade 8 examination from Trinity College of Music, London in piano performance. My main goal as a music teacher is not just to provide training and lessons, but to inspire students to continue to learn and gain skills on their own and master the art of music composition. Classes can be provided at the student's residence and my classes will include a combination of aural training, sight reading and training in performance and composition (based on the student's level).

Clément
Music theory, music, piano and / or singing lessons
Passionate about music offers an initiation or a deepening in music (music theory, piano or song) during this particular period. My goal is to be as attentive as possible to your expectations and I will be completely able to adapt. Practicing the piano since the age of 6, I acquired a very good level of music theory and then found playful methods for this learning which may seem boring but which is still necessary. The goal is to help the motivation and confidence of the young (or at least young :)! ). Learning music theory can be for all instruments. Indeed, I know the three types of keys (G, F, and U) depending on the instruments. I am also a member of a musical comedy troupe with which we put on 8 shows with live music. So I also have a great experience in singing and piano in front of an audience. I am also preparing this year the Music option of the baccalaureate and could therefore also teach you comparative listening techniques or tell you about a work or a genre of music that interests you. Feel free to contact me for more information !

Louise
Music theory / musical awakening
Former student in preparatory class literary music option at Lycée Fénelon of Paris, currently music student, master at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (CNSM), I teach music theory and viola da gamba. I have a great sense of organization, I know how to find work methods that correspond to each student so that everyone learns in the most effective way possible. I regularly replace one of my teachers of viola da gamba in a conservatory in the Paris region. I am told very pedagogue. I really like children. I know how to be friendly, friendly, and set limits for the student to learn in the best possible conditions. I have always loved solfeggio and think that this subject can be taught in a fun, interesting way, in connection with the instrumental practice of the student. The musical awakening is a first approach of the music which allows the child to anchor the rhythm in his body, to develop his ear and his creativity through the improvisation, while beginning to learn the first notions of music theory . The group's musical awakening lessons make the child grow in his relationship to the other, by encouraging him to listen to and respect the interventions of other children, to react to these different propositions. I obtained my Bachelor's degree with Distinctions at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in June 2015, with a result of 16/20 for solfège.
