"From Zero to Advanced" - Online Classical, Jazz and Bossa-nova Flute Lessons with Brazilian/British Bacharel and Enthusiastic Teacher

Hello Flutist!!

How are you doing during these pandemic times? Hope you are well and safe!!

I am Marcio. Welcome to my Apprentus profile! First of all, I am a specialized and fully dedicated Online Teacher.
I have been teaching online since the very beginning of the covid pandemic. Since then, I have developed a lot of my way of working.
All my lessons are run on Skype which works amazingly well for both video and audio. Also, to enrich the quality of the audio from my students, I very often use a pair of professional headphones which give me amazing high definition sound and articulation of the student.
I also work on my iPad with the Apple Pencil and using the share screen resource I can demonstrate and draw on music sheets and methods that I am working with the student at that moment.
I simply love it and most of the time it really feels much better than a lesson in person due to all these technological possibilities.
My students and I have a lot of fun, you can count on that!

I also have a number of Pricing Plans for weekly lessons that will lower the cost of the lesson considerably!

My METHODOLOGY
I use a methodology that I have developed over the years of practicing and teaching both my students and myself. It’s called: PRIORITY FOCUS.
PRIORITY FOCUS basically is a non-multi tasking way of learning a musical instrument allowing time and space for us to learn and fully conquer one ability at a time.
We start at the very basic aspects of posture, fingering, and embouchure, and climb our way up to the most detailed techniques and musical expressions. One Flute-playing ability at the time.

This methodology is constructed on what I consider to be the two main subjects in Music learning and playing, what I call THE PILLARS OF MUSIC:

MUSICALITY AND INSTRUMENTAL TECHNIQUE

Both intermix and coexist in a single dimension, but in terms of studying and progressing, I find that separating them is essential to accelerate and solidify my students’ learning and my own.
MUSICALITY encompasses aspects such as musical phrases, vibrato, dynamics, tone colors, improvisations, music theory, harmony, and style: CLASSICAL, JAZZ, FUNK, POP, SAMBA, and BOSSA-NOVA, all of which I have KNOWLEDGE and EXPERIENCE.
In INSTRUMENTAL TECHNIQUE, in our case, FLUTE TECHNIQUE, we have elements such as posture, embouchure, fingerings, breathing, articulation, tonguing, and music reading.
To work on these aspects with my students I use several distinctive Flute Methods, from the most TRADITIONAL to the most MODERN ones, as well as INNUMEORUS EXERCICES that I have specifically developed for Flute technical improvements from years of experience as a Flutist, Student, and Teacher.
I also use many teachings from distinct areas such as Yoga for FOCUS and RELAXATION, Alexander technique for Posture and BALANCE, and Philosophical spiritual schools for MOTIVATION.
Let’s also not forget the intense work that’s is done on the REPERTOIRE OF THE STUDENT’S TASTE.
I provide all materials from my vast library completely TO MY STUDENTS.

I confess that there is nothing in the world, besides being with my wife and daughter, that I love more than playing and teaching about Music and the Flute.
I am an extremely PATIENT, ENTHUSIASTIC, DEDICATED, AND CARING TEACHER. MOTIVATION is the key and I GUARANTEE that you’ll leave motivated after each lesson.

About Me

Now, let me tell you a bit about myself.

I'm a 40 year-old Brazilian/British citizen. I have been playing the Flute for 28 years, since I was 12 years old. My career as a teacher also began very early in life at the age of 17 at my father's Music School "Music is Life" in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. Later, I continued teaching privately when I moved to the UK after I graduated from my BA (Hons) at the Colchester Institute in Essex. Today, besides from teaching, I am also Solo Piccolo at the Taubate Symphonic Band and Principal Flute at the Vale Philharmonic Orchestra. Recently, I have also been awarded for best soundtrack for the movie Duda with my composition Loneliness for Solo Flute. Other awards include the Solo and Duet Competition I won during University.

I live with my wife Carol and our beautiful 6 year-old daughter, Maria Flor. I consider myself a very happy and fulfilled person. I find that having something as special as music as a way of living (or even just as a hobby) can be very FULFILLING and THERAPEUTIC. And the very same I can say for teaching. One of the greatest Flute teachers of all times, the Englishman Trevor Wye, said in his book "Proper Flute Playing": “the greatest quality a teacher can have is enthusiasm and passion for teaching.” And that is how I like to path my way as a teacher. PASSIONATE and ENTHUSIASTIC to the art of Music and the Flute, the oldest and most mystical instrument in the history of mankind!

I really hope that this short text has left you with an impression of whom I am and what Music means to me. And that it somehow motivates you on following this journey in your life even if it is with another teacher. If you choose me, the first lesson I do not charge. It will be a very CONSTRUCTIVE chat about your history and, of course, some good playing to discover NEW MUSICAL POSSIBILITIES to you.

Thank you very much for your time! I do not take it for granted!

Hope to hear from shortly,

In the mean time, “KEEP ON FLUTING!”


Below, I will leave you with a more formal résumé of myself:

Marcio is an experienced Flutist, Piccolo Player and Music Teacher. Now at 40 years old, Marcio divides his time intensely between the career of Professional Instrumentalist and Professor of all levels. Besides being the father of the beautiful 6 year-old Maria Flor! Coming from a musical family on part of his father and mother, Marcio began his musical studies at the Recorder at the age of 11. At 12 he was already transitioning to the Transversal Flute. At 17 he was teaching the Transversal Flute and Guitar at his father's school, the so-called "Music and Life". Where he began his extensive experience as a teacher. In 2000, at São Paulo - Brazil, he graduated from the respected Conservatory "Maestro Fego Carmago" at the Transversal Flute and Saxophone with the legendary professor Jonnas Mansur. In that same year, he traveled as a Flutist representing the Conservatory of Music in exchanging performances in France, for the project "500 ans d'amitié Brésil et France". From there he traveled straight to England to further his musical studies with Professor Catherine Sign, graduated of the acclaimed Royal College of Music in London. In 2005, he graduated Bachelor of Music with Honors from the Colchester Institute of Music in Essex - UK, where he won two competitions: Soloist, with a performance of the complex Solo Piece from Varèse - Density 21.5, and Duet Competition with the talented flutist Amy Little .

Learn the Art of Celtic Music on the Irish Flute
With me, you will have the opportunity to escape to "Celtic" country for a lesson There are several types of Irish flute: (Tin Whistle, Low Whistle, Irish Flute) I will make you discover the beauty of so-called "Celtic" music by explaining everything you need to know. * The basics of this instrument (positions, interviews, breath control, etc.) * The many Celtic Standards. Indeed, there are many more or less difficult songs, but nevertheless very melodious :) If you do not have a traditional Irish flute, during a first lesson, I will be able to guide you on which flute to buy. We will obviously take into consideration your different wishes So if you are ready to deepen your knowledge, I will be happy to teach you what I learned :) NB: If you have a Boehm type transverse flute (transverse flute used in Classical Music), it may take more time to familiarize yourself with Celtic Music. I mean by that that certain positions, certain fingerings will be more difficult to play because of the keys of the flute ... But don't worry, we will find a way to overcome this difficulty. :)

Fun Through Music: Violin and Music Theory Lessons
Hello, I'm Adelina! I'm Romanian and I've recently graduated my master’s in violin performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. Apart from playing music, one of my other passions is teaching. While having a degree in pedagogy, I've had several violin and music theory students so far. I’m experienced with teaching children/teenagers between the ages of 4 and 15. However, I’ve had adults in my class as well! As my profession requires, I’m calm, creative with musical games and have quite a lot of patience. I’m fluent in Romanian and English, however I’m able to have basic conversations in Russian as well and I’m in the process of learning Dutch. Don't hesitate to contact me and let's make learning fun! :)

Aurel
Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). Recently, the band was part of Keep An Eye The Records's finalists (March 2022). Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!

Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.
