Madeleine
Former cello student at the conservatory offers cello and music theory lessons
From the first class I gave, I felt that I was passionate about teaching, for many reasons, such as sharing knowledge or feeling the other progress and get to know the world better and better. instrument, but also because I find that the course is a moment of sharing, as enriching for the person who teaches as for the person who learns. Thus, I am very attached to the fact of being above all listening to the desires and needs of my students, in order to provide them with what suits them, while allowing them to progress effectively. I always try to understand the way of functioning of the person, in order to adapt to him what I propose to him. I want to give him keys that will allow him to work independently, while being present to answer his questions, and follow his development. Finally, I realize that it is important to love playing music, and I want to transmit the passion that drives me to people coming to me; but I also wish to convey the desire to play with music, a subtle nuance but nevertheless opening up a considerable field of possibilities.

Louna
Flute Lessons in Paris following my French-American method
My method synthesizes the strongest aspects of the French and American schools, and is oriented by an empowering pedagogical format teaching the student auto-listening skills so they can continue to build knowledge and ease on the instrument outside of the studio. The studio also holds two group masterclasses per year. I teach beginners, intermediate students, and do intensive coachings with advanced students who are looking to prepare a program or audition. Nous travaillons la sonorité, le rhythme, l'articulation, le phrasé et la musique de chambre (duos).

Nikhil
Piano/Keyboard Lessons (Music Theory, Aural Training, Sight Reading, Composition and Performance)
Music is a globally recognised form of expression that connects everyone of us in one way or the other. As a musician, I have tried to inspire people from different walks of life to feel the joy and love for playing the piano and creating music. I have composed music for multiple bands, have played for choirs and have accompanied many influential artists. I cleared the Grade 8 examination from Trinity College of Music, London in piano performance. My main goal as a music teacher is not just to provide training and lessons, but to inspire students to continue to learn and gain skills on their own and master the art of music composition. Classes can be provided at the student's residence and my classes will include a combination of aural training, sight reading and training in performance and composition (based on the student's level).

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

Damien
Conservatory student gives lessons in guitar, music theory and musical composition (all styles)
Graduated from a license in musicology, I am currently pursuing my graduate studies at the conservatory in the scholarly disciplines of composition, analysis, writing, musical arrangement as well as Jazz. I have been playing guitar for many, many years now, as well as piano and flute. I have been giving guitar and music education lessons to children and teenagers for four years now. I also have a very good level in music theory, writing (jazz and classical), harmony as well as musical composition. My classes are based on listening as well as the development of the musical ear and musical creativity. I try to transmit my passion for music by making my students discover very varied horizons, from jazz to classical music, including current music and so-called traditional music. I also seek to develop autonomy in my students, an essential quality in order to flourish both musically and in everyday life. This is why I insist on the knowledge of the instrument and the development of creativity through the teaching of applied music theory and the development of the ear. My course is aimed at both beginners and people of an intermediate or advanced level who would like to improve their skills. If you are looking for a teacher who is both an educator and attentive to your personal musicality, do not hesitate to contact me.

Graduate professional musician gives lessons in Solfège, Piano, Musical writing and Improvisation at home and by webcam
My courses are aimed for amateurs and / or professionals wishing to improve their level in solfège, music theory, piano and improvisation. After a first meeting with the student, and after a short audition and discussion, we can develop a work plan that can help him accomplish his goal in the most effective way possible.

Clara
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. Currently a student in Musicology, I obtained my DEM (Diploma of Musical Studies) at the Conservatory of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, after ten years of music theory and cello. I teach music theory and cello to a wide variety of profiles. Whether you are a beginner or want to deepen your knowledge, I can provide you with a support course and allow you to improve yourself through effective practice and clear, simplified and illustrated explanations for the concepts that pose a problem to you.

Antonio
Graduated saxophonist with 10 years of experience teaches saxophone and music theory.
I use the methods of the conservatory and I rely in particular on the works of pillars of the saxophone. I teach classical saxophone and / or current music (pop, jazz, funk). During a first class, we define your instrumental level and your objectives, in order to establish a working method that will allow you to progress, by specifically targeting areas for improvement. I divide each session into three parts: music theory / theory, instrumental practice and progressive learning of a piece chosen in consultation with the student. This allows him to gain autonomy in the practice of music by finding pleasure in playing. I address myself to all audiences (children and adults) and to all levels (beginners and experienced).

Yoann
Piano lessons, piano accompaniment or / and lyrical singing
For piano lessons, above all, have fun! The first lesson is given according to your level and your piano and musical desires. Then I adapt the learning according to (technique, pieces that can be approached ect ...) For singing lessons, I am an opera singer. So people wanting to approach opera welcome and anyone who wants to improve their techniques (opera or variety) also welcome. Vocalises and songs according to your level and musical desires. For music theory lessons it is really for those who want to fill their gap. In general I always accompany my piano or singing lessons with solfegic notions.

Jules
Solfège and musical culture (History, analysis ...).
Student of the National Superior Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris, contributor and critic for the Avant-Scène Opéra, editor for the Luxembourg Philharmonic, I offer the following lessons. Music theory and musical culture are essential tools for understanding and making music. Music theory, because it allows you to master the technical tools that allow you to make music, is fundamental for anyone who wants to progress in their instrument. Musical culture makes it possible to understand what goes on in music beyond the technique. From this knowledge (established over a lot of listening) we can develop an interpretation and go beyond technical issues. For music theory lessons only, I constantly articulate the different musical parameters (rhythm, intonation, ear, etc.) and draw my training from the repertoire, which has the advantage of making music from the start. Small technical exercises also allow you to focus on one or the other parameter, but the perspective remains mainly that of a global approach placing the music at the center. As far as musical culture is concerned, I use each of my professional experiences (Musicologist, playwright and music critic) to transmit my knowledge to you. Thus we will approach the history of music through works (history of forms and languages), interpretation and places of music. It is mainly through the study of documents (texts of musical criticism, iconography, scores, musical instruments…) that transmission takes place. Knowledge completes and informs this documentary study. Finally the study of document and the erudition have only one goal: to enlighten the listening of the works which I place at the heart of my teaching.

Anya
Voice coaching, understanding your voice and developing a musical ear
Musician graduated from a school of Jazz and modern music, my goal is to gradually and according to their levels, bring people's curiosity towards music to the desire to better understand, appreciate and master it. Singing is a discipline that requires regular work, to learn to control your breathing, your body and therefore your voice. My goal is to make the student want to stay diligent about his practice without overloading it, and to give him the tools necessary to move forward without him / her losing the pleasure of singing or composing. What interests me in the context of a private lesson is to clarify the student's objectives and to adapt to his personality so that he can relate what he likes to listen to something. accessible for him / her.
