Private violin lessons, Music Theory, Technical and Musical Skills

My goal is to make people of all ages and levels learn not only playing an instrument but how can music help them in their everyday life.
I am an Albanian violinist, with a Bachelor degree in Classical Music (Violin) and Musicologie in Sorbonne University.
Over the years, my experiences with different youth and professional orchestras all around Europe have made me understand that music is important not only for professional musicians but also for everyone.
I can teach in English or French and of course in my mother tongue Albanian.

Extra information

You will need to attend the lesson with your own instrument. Besides, we can choose the learning method together depending on your level so we decide on the sheet music that fits the best to you.

My private violin lesson with Ester was absolutely perfect. I had a privilege to hear Ester play her violin and she is so good- it is crazy to think I was able to learn from her. She is also such a good teacher. Full of knowlege and patience- which is, in my opinion, a rare combination. I had no prior musical education and this was my first real music lesson. Ester managed to teach me basic note reading, correct violin holding and even playing my first tunes. Her explainations are very clear and easy to understand. And her approach is very friendly. She is also a very nice person and easy to talk to. I wish we lived in the same city so I could keep studying playing violin with Ester- that's how good she is. Lidia
Ester is really good at finding problem areas and suggesting techniques to correct the problems. She is also extremely patient.
Ses leçons sont très professionnelles. Elle me donne toujours une leçon adéquate à ce que je veux faire !
Ester is a patient and helpful teacher. She will adapt her lessons to your needs and level while challenging you to improve.
Great teacher. Very professional. I started with no French and am slowly getting more comfortable with every class.

Recently graduated with a bachelor degree from Pole Superieur conservatory of Paris and Sorbonne University, I would like to teach french to foreigners(especially those who's native language is Albanian or English), living or working in Paris. I have been teaching kids since 2017. I also have a DELF diploma of French language (the one recognised from the state to study in any french university). My goal is to keep students challenged and progress while their living in the country. I assign home-works after every session and provide periodic progress reports. I can teach from English or Albanian towards French

Emilie
Classical violin lessons in French, English and Danish
Hello! I am Emilie, a Danish violinist who has lived in Paris since August 2020. I finished my Master's degree in Copenhagen in 2021 after a year in Erasmus+ at the CNSM conservatory in Paris. A passion of mine is teaching and inspiring students with quality, humor and energy. It's important to me that the students feel that the lessons are relevant to them, so the motivation remains to do the work alone between lessons. Also that we have alignment of expectations on the subject of work between the student, the teacher (and the parents of the students if this is the case) The duration of the course depends on each individual situation, as everyone has different needs. For small children 30 min may be sufficient. So I speak French, English and Danish and I can give lessons in the language you prefer :) See you soon, Emilie

Fernando
Violin and viola teacher (Français - Español - English )
“Talent grows through exercise…” - Shinichi Suzuki I have been giving violin lessons for 10 years, my working method is based on the Suzuki method, the mother tongue method. A child first learns to speak before learning to read and write. Language learning is done mainly by listening and mimicry. For music, it's the same, you must first master the basics of the instrument before knowing how to read notes and scores. Whatever the age of the student, beginner level or confirmed, I offer private lessons of violin and viola. No knowledge or musical notion is necessary beforehand, the theoretical achievements are made as and when the discovery of the instrument.

Jemma
Oboe and Theory lessons
I am a freelance oboist with over 10 years teaching experience both privately and in schools. Pupils have ranged from children through to adults (my oldest was 80 so it's never too late to learn!) beginners to post grade 8. I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher and my aim is to ensure that all my pupils enjoy making music and can work towards their individual goals, whether it be just for fun or preparing for music exams. I am also able to teach music theory, which not only helps with musicianship but is necessary if students are wanting to progress through to the higher music grades. I gained a Bachelor of Music and Masters degree from two of the top London music colleges; the Royal College and Royal Academy of Music. Since then, I have been performing as a soloist and with orchestras and ensembles around the world.

Brice
Gives drum lessons (electronic and acoustic)
Hello, I like to transmit and exchange with my students. Seeing them understand and progressing is essential and very rewarding for me. My lessons are based on an academic method focused on learning music theory and instrumental practice. I bring a specific method adapted to the profiles of my students (age, availability, tastes, motivation, "anti-music theory"). I try to make my students independent, help them develop their listening skills, their sense of rhythm and transmit to them an efficient working method. All styles, all levels: rock, funk, jazz, blues, soul, reggae, latin

Solfeggio (Music Theory) and Cello lessons, for beginners / intermediate / confirmed.
Music theory or music theory can be perceived as difficult and off-putting by all of us. However, it suffices to practice it efficiently and methodically to very quickly feel at ease and make progress.
