Classical / jazz piano lessons and / or singing lessons at home for all levels

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Graduated from a Diploma in Musical Studies mention A + from the Jacques Thibaud Conservatory in Bordeaux (France) and a master's student in piano interpretation at the University of Montreal, I have been working as a piano teacher for four years now. I teach piano and music theory to all types of profiles, children, adolescents or adults ranging from a beginner level to an early 3rd cycle level. During my musical journey, I tried to feed my knowledge in the service of instrumental practice and pedagogy. During my lessons, we will address subjects that are essential for me such as the right position on the piano, the flexibility of the game, stress management, body relaxation and of course, interpretation. My pedagogy is based heavily on this last point so that the student can stand out musically and find his own language while respecting a correct interpretation. I work every day to find a playful side to the instrumental practice for the youngest while instilling in them the theoretical and technical bases which they will need to develop their game.

I obtained a degree in Music Studies at the Conservatoire Jacques Thibaud in Bordeaux (France) with a Mention of High Honors, I am a student in Musical Interpretation at the University of Montreal and I've also been teaching piano for the last 4 years. I teach piano and music theory to any type of profiles, from kids, teenagers to adults with level skills that can go from beginners to confirmed players. Throughout my musical path, I've tried to increase my knowledge and expand it thanks to a lot of practice and pedagogy. In my courses, we will see things that I find essential such as the good position on the piano, the flexibility of your hands, how to deal with stress, the relaxation of the body and of course, interpretation. My pedagogy is mainly based on this point to make the student musically shine, find his own musical language but with a right and harmonious interpretation. I work everyday to try to find playful ways to teach the youngest students without forgetting to teach them the technical and theoretical basis they will need to develop their skill.

J’ai appris les bases du piano avec Emma. Elle a su adapter son cours à mes préférences musicales et à mes attentes en termes de technique, et j’ai pu progresser très rapidement. Emma sait trouver un juste milieu entre pousser pour progresser, et proposer des morceaux plus accessibles pour prendre plaisir à jouer du piano régulièrement. Et point bonus pour son adorable chat !

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).

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.

Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia.

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.

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.
