I’m so lucky that I was able to have lessons with Jack during my time in Berlin! He creates such a supportive environment for learning — laid back and calm, yet totally professional. After years of me struggling independently with a few pieces, he was able to show me new ways of approaching the music that transformed even the hardest parts into something accessible. He has a lovely and genuine way of offering encouragement / recognizing progress, while still keeping track of the underlying objective; a more far-reaching arc of improvement. I like how he remembers this larger perspective from week to week (especially when I forget), and finds ways to expertly weave the end goal into incremental, manageable steps. I have learned so much from the tools and techniques he’s shared with me, and am grateful to have enjoyed his teaching.
Lovely person, very knowledgeable, a very attentive teacher.
I started with Jack as a complete beginner. Through his constant encouragement and patients I'm delighted with my progress so far. The way he tailors his lesson to your goals and interests keeps the lesson fun and keeps you interested and engaged. I would 100% recommend Jack to anyone looking to learn how to play the piano and wants to enjoy the process of doing so.
I picked up learning piano in my late 30s, and Jack came to the rescue! I had no idea that I would learn to coordinate both my hands this fast! He's been really helping me shape my music and my playing skills with technique work and working on pieces that I really enjoy. The thing I like about Jack is he doesn't make you feel bad about your mistakes; he's really there to help you. He supports you and we laugh together when I make a bad move and he really helps me figure out what the pieces mean to him and what they could mean to me in a way that focuses on the music.
I had beginner level lessons with Jack and learned a lot. He is very professional, patient, always on time and has very good personality. I enjoyed having lessons with Jack a lot and can wholeheartedly recommend to both novice and advanced students!

Federico
Classical and Jazz Piano, and Composition Tutoring
I am a composer, pianist, teacher, and researcher currently based in Berlin. I hold a Bachelor's degree in jazz piano from the Conservatory of Vicenza, Italy, a Master and a PhD in composition from the University of Leeds, UK. In 2011, I attained a scholarship as promising student of the Conservatory of Vicenza. From 2006 to 2009 I was volunteer at a special needs-school, using music as a form of therapy. From 2013 to 2015 I studied Piano at the Conservatory ‘Prince Claus’ in Groningen, The Netherlands where I worked mostly as a performer. In 2019 my CD ‘Breaths’ was released by British label Another Timbre. My pieces have been broadcasted by Keith F’eM, Concertzender Radio, and Radio 3 and my scores have been published in IM–OS Improvised Music-Open Scores and THE MASS. I've been teaching piano, music theory, improvisation, and composition for 12 years now. When teaching I always attempt to organise targeted lessons that cover varying musical aspects depending on the students' skills and preferences. I teach either online or at my place in Berlin, Mitte.

Composition, Music theory, Music Production Lessons
Hello there, I am a professional composer living in Berlin Mitte. I hold a Master's and a Bachelor's degree in Composition from the conservatory of Utrecht in the Netherlands. I write for orchestras, ensembles and theater and I have had commissions from the Athens State Orchestra, the International Ensemble Modern Academy and the Gaudeamus Festival among others. Since 7 years I have been teaching students of any age (kids, adults) and level the following Subjects: -Composition / Songwriting -Music Theory -Music Production / Music Software (Sibelius, Logic) -Advanced Rhythm I am open to any combination of the above subjects :-) I always try to adapt to each student, his level and most importantly his needs. *With adults that are already musically active I like to focus the work we do together on the project you are working on now, in a way that can help you now. *With kids or adults willing to take that road, we can do the "harder" type of work that will build and enhance the foundations of your musical knowledge. I can teach in English and German and the lesson can be at my place, your place, or via webcam.

Professioneller Klavier- und Querflötenunterricht, Klassische Musik, Jazz, Pop, inklusive Musiktheorie an der Kreuzung Torstraße/Gartenstraß
[DEUTSCH] Ich bin fest davon überzeugt, dass guter Unterricht damit beginnt, dass man sich so weit wie möglich um die Bedürfnisse und Ansichten der Schüler kümmert, Sympathie übt und die Welt durch ihre Brille sehen kann. Der Schüler kann für den Lehrer genauso inspirierend sein wie der Lehrer für den Schüler. Der Unterricht kann individuell nach deinen Bedürfnissen gestaltet werden. Wir können besprechen, was Dich interessiert, was Du lernen möchtest, von Klassik oder Jazz bis hin zu populären Genres. Wenn Du bereit bist herauszufinden, welche Art von Reise und Fortschritt wir machen können, schreibe mir! [ENGLISH] I truly believe that good teaching starts with the maximal possible amount of caring about the student’s needs, point of view, practising sympathy and being able to see the world through their glasses at least as much as it is possible. The student can be just as inspiring for the teacher as the teacher can be for the student. When they happen to fit each other, their work bears fruit in no time! The lessons can be personalised based on your needs. We can discuss what you are interested in, what you would like to learn about from classical or jazz to popular genres. If you are ready to figure out what kind of journey and progress we can make, write me! Über mich/About me: [DEUTSCH] Ich bin ein 26-jähriger Musiker, habe meinen Master in Flöte in Ungarn gemacht, studiere Komposition an der Universität der Künste Berlin, gebe seit 6 Jahren Klavier-, Flöten- und Musiktheorieunterricht und gebe Nachhilfe in Mathematik. Ich bin ein Mensch, dessen ganzes Leben sich seit meiner Geburt immer um Musik dreht. Ich freue mich immer darauf, das Wissen der anderen zu teilen, gute Diskussionen mit aufgeschlossenen Menschen zu führen und neue Sichtweisen, neue Aspekte unserer Welt zu entdecken. Ich bin in einer Musikerfamilie aufgewachsen, meine Eltern sind Berufsmusiker in einem Sinfonieorchester. Seit meinem fünften Lebensjahr lerne ich Klavier und Querflöte. Als Kind wollte ich möglichst viele Instrumente wie Tuba, Fagott, Geige, akustische und elektrische Gitarre, Bassgitarre und Kontrabass, Akkordeon etc. ein wenig lernen. Am Ende wurden Flöte, Klavier und Komposition mein Profil. Ich habe viele verschiedene Konzerte organisiert und gespielt, die auf klassischer, zeitgenössischer, experimenteller, theatralischer, elektronischer, Jazz- und Popmusik, Free Jazz, freier Improvisation, grafischer Notation, Soundpainting , Performance Arts, Volksmusik verschiedener Völker und so weiter basieren. Ich bin begeistert, etwas Neues über jede Art von Musik zu lernen und Verbindungen zwischen den Musikstücken zu finden, die aus ziemlich unterschiedlichen Ursprüngen stammen. [ENGLISH] I’m a 26-year-old musician, completed my master’s degree in flute in Hungary, studying composition at Universität der Künste Berlin, having been giving piano, flute and music theory lessons and tutoring mathematics for 6 years so far. I’m a person whose whole life has always been around music since I was born. I’m always excited in sharing each other’s knowledge, having good discussions with open minded people and discovering new point of views, new aspects of our World. I grew up in a musician family, my parents are professional musicians in a symphony orchestra. I have been learning the piano and the flute since I was five years old. As a child I was eager to learn a little bit of as many instruments as possible such as tuba, bassoon, violin, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar and double bass, accordion etc. In the end playing the flute, the piano and composition became my profile. I have organised and played at a lot of different concerts based on classical, contemporary, experimental, theatrical, electronic, jazz and pop music, free jazz, free improvisation, graphical notation, soundpainting, performance arts, folk music of different peoples and so on. I get excited learning anything new about any kind of music and finding connections between the pieces of music coming from rather different origins.

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level/Beginner/ Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons with a focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms from a broad base of musical genres. Classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. Each lesson is designed to keep the student at the peak of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing their own technical skill. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their passion to the music they want to play. In the first lesson, we can get to know each other and you can get an idea for how the lessons will be taught while letting me know what elements you'd like to focus on in the future.

Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.
