Piano and music theory courses - Cours de piano et Théorie de la musique

This class is designed not only to teach the concepts and fundamentals needed to perform on classical piano but aspire young musicians. It will increase musical understanding beyond reading notes and by introducing a vocabulary of chords, keys, scales and arpeggios as well as music theory. Students will develop good practice habits, and learn techniques to increase the muscular agility and flexibility of their hands.

I have been studying music since the age of six and I have been involved with national competitions and concerts. I am certified with a Grade 7 in the ABRSM system and currently in preparation to obtain the final level (Grade 8). I am a part-time piano teacher and I have experience with children and teenagers. In addition I am an active member of the Les culturElles (NGO) in which I am responsible of the creation and development of the music part of ongoing and future projects.

You can receive your private piano lessons from the comfort of your own home, or at my location. Nights and weekends are available. Lessons can be in English, Greek or French. Students can start as early as 4 years old and there isn't an upper age limit for adults. It is never too late to start learning the piano, and it is never too late to get back to it.

About Me

I am an enthusiastic pianist and chemist with specialization in sustainability chemical engineering for the latter. During my secondary education, I followed a double specialization degree in music and science which led to my Grade 7 Piano certification from the UK’s Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in 2008. I then graduated from London Metropolitan University (UK) with a BSc in Chemistry in 2011, followed by an MSc in Sustainable Chemical Engineering in 2012 and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Newcastle University (UK) in February 2017. I have experience in bioremediation studies for developing novel technologies for chemical and energy production.

They say that people who love science, love to play a musical instrument. My interests are chemistry, the environment and the piano. I have been playing the piano since the age of six and I have participated in national competitions and concerts.

Xenia is a well prepared and qualified teacher
I have only taken two lessons for now with Xenia, but I am enjoying it so much and I am super excited! :) Xenia is a very good teacher, she always plans the lessons very well in advance, with a good balance between theory and practice. I would always recommend her.
Xenia is friendly, supportive, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Her lessons are well-prepared and tailored to the student's level and interests. She is so very organised that you feel she has really given care to the pieces she has selected for you. She is able to balance knowledge and skills with application in beautiful musical compositions. She is also flexible and if something doesn't go according to plan she is open to change and variation to best suit your needs at the time. I look forward to my lessons with her each week and know that together we are not only making great progress but also enjoying and fostering the love for music. Anyone, young or old, would be very lucky to have her as a teacher and I recommend her whole-heartedly.
Thank you very much for your time Xenia. It was a great time for my daughter to learn with you. We are looking forward to the next class.
Thank You Xenia. The classes have been really good for Disha and he is enjoying it a lot.

Matthias
Guitar and bass lessons (participant The Voice season 7)
Participant The Voice season 7 in Mika's team, and singer in the duo Uku & Lily, I have been teaching the guitar for over 10 years to students of all ages and levels. I like to work on a register oriented to the tastes of the student to ensure his motivation, while giving him the best bases and technical elements necessary for his progression. I work the practice of the instrument above all, with moments devoted to the development of the ear as well as a little musical theory. I do not teach music theory, and use tablatures (guitar reference system) for guitar and bass lessons. I spend a lot of time in the studio and unfortunately take few students, but I still have a few places left! I also teach in english!
