Piano and music theory classes. Classical / jazz. Berklee graduate.

I offer piano and music theory lessons in English, French and Spanish in the Lausanne area.

I graduated "summa cum laude" from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston majoring in film scoring and composition, minoring in conducting and with piano as my main instrument.

Currently my main activity is writing music for films but I have been teaching piano lessons since 2012 and love it! My Berklee education gave me a very solid education, both performance and theory wise, in many different music styles ranging from classical to jazz and rock.

My teaching philosophy is based on enjoyment of the music we create, enjoyment of the learning process, and on developing the ear. This allow the student, from any age, to start expressing themselves very quickly. My students start working hard not because I ask them to, but because they love it!

In addition of the piano part I can also give classes in classical or jazz theory, composing, improvising or music technology. I am also happy to mix any of those.

Rafael
Piano Lesson
I have a Bachelor in Piano Orientation Music. I studied piano first in Valais at Mrs Barbara Borse, then at Mrs Magali Bourquin in Lausanne and I concluded my Bachelor studies with Mr Christian Favre. I teach for 2 years in Lausanne in private homes. I have also made substitutions in various schools. My main goal as a teacher is to open the world of music to the student and teach him a solid foundation so that he can be as independent as possible in his work. That's why parallel to the piano course I also propose an instruction to harmony and of course music theory. I therefore welcome students of all ages beginners, students who wish to take the piano, students who wish to enroll in the conservatory thereafter or students with bases who want to improve. I am in possession of a vehicle and therefore moves easily even outside Lausanne. Spoken languages: German, French, Spanish, English

The clarinet, a fascinating instrument! Courses for all ages, all levels, all walks of life.
The clarinet is a fascinating instrument. Its woody timbre, its tessitura close to the voice offers a wide range of musical directions. Whether you want to play classical, jazz, song or world music, we will progress together to connect the song and the instrument. To develop the breath, to consolidate its supports, to feel the rhythm and to shine the melodies, that is the objective! I adapt my method according to each student but here are the central points of my educational work: - Warm up: stretching and breathing - Sound work: beak, held notes, harmonics * - Technique: ranges, transpositions * - Repertoire: Piece being learned, reading *, improvisation. * confirmed students SINGING I attach particular importance to the link between song and instrument. Singing the songs and even the scales improves the musicality, the phrasing, the accuracy to the instrument. MEMORY As much as possible, I ask to memorize the pieces. Knowing how to sing a song before playing it is for me the best way to integrate it.

I travel near the EPFL and within a radius of 3 km around Lausanne. The course can be given in Lausanne in my music room. (1004 Lausanne) Want to start the guitar? Want to try out classical works or to play the latest pop songs on the radio? No problem I am here to help you achieve your goal! Even if you have never touched a guitar of your life I can teach you from basic notes through scales and chords to play your favorite arpeggios. If necessary I enrich my teaching with solfège and guitar culture. It will be necessary to learn to know your instrument and especially to know how to read the scores to exercise when I would not be there;) If the course is for your child I know how to be a pedagogue and a patient, and children often have a good listening experience when learning a musical instrument. I can help them develop their musical ear while showing them the basics of this art. For schedules I can be flexible but preferably during the week. Here I hope soon to scratch some agreements with you :)
