About Me

I'm a passionate guitar and music theory/composition teacher, with ten years of experience in both children and adults music teaching. I developed through the years a method focused on creativity, improvisation, maieutics, learning by doing, practice before theory in order to let the student understand and give value to his/her own way of learning and have the best
learning experience.

Education

07/2019 - graduated in music education at Conservatory "F.Venezze" Rovigo
06/2017 - Master graduated in Music Composition at Conservatory "F.Venezze" Rovigo
06/2009 - Master graduated in Clarinet at Conservatory "F.Venezze" Rovigo

Experience / Qualifications

I studyed guitar since the early years of my life, both with great masters and by myself. I took part to several rock bands projects, and now I perform with Ensemble Collettivo Crisis, a group of musicians and composers from Italy.
Every child is a musician an improviser and an explorer! This class will guide her/him through her/his own exploration of the music territories in order to develop creativity, listening skills, spontaneity in a safe, protected environment, free from judgment and strict music rules. This music path will build a strong and solid ground, for every kind of future music activity the child will take. This method involves singing, playing (I can provide some instruments like a guitar, little percussions, etc. for the lesson time), improvising, composing, drawing, writing and it's aimed to work in a playful way on the sense of rhythm and pitch, creativity, music-related analytic skills. The method wants to help and support the children in the discovery of the music in a personal and individual way, pinpointing out the children's needs, empowering her/his talents.
Music Theory is known as a tough and scary subject but, as everything, it's a matter of teaching/learning method. During the class you will learn how to deal with music theory trough a practical approach, learning by doing we will put the focus on your needs, and I will guide you to the aim. Both if you are a musician who need a couple of extra lessons in order to take an exam, a songwriter who wants to improve his/her theory knowledge or if you are just a passionate learner, I can help and support you, finding the best learning path and guiding you trough the rules of the music architecture.

Alex
Guitar lessons and music theory lessons in Rotterdam
Through his studies in Rotterdam, Alex had the opportunity to learn guitar with teachers from different backgrounds and influences (classical, latin, jazz, flamenco, Turkish, Indian, jazz composition and pop). This led him to study his instrument and investigate music through multiple angles and perspectives, accumulating complementary knowledge to fully understand and synthesize its functioning. After achieving a degree in guitar (performance and pedagogy), he started to devise exercises and systems of learning through his own method, refining it as time went on. He then started to teach what he had learned and developed, first in private classes then through music schools. Alex's priorities through the lessons are development, motivation and interest. It's very important that there is a constructive evolution in the pupil's playing, a constant will to move forward, as well as pieces/songs that inspire him or her. It's important that the pupils learn through an efficient and personal method, but also through their own interest and repertoire (wishlist). In a teaching lesson the focus is put on : - guitar posture, technique and sound - timing and rhythmic feel - strumming and grooves - interpretation - theory and knowledge of music - improvisation - repertoire (on student's wishlist) There are three dimensions to a student's programme : scores, tutorials and coaching. Having a Master's degree in Jazz composition (Rotterdam), Alex designs the scores himself, making arrangements of pieces / songs in an accessible way, along with his method and exercises for guitar technique. The scores are written with a hybrid notation (music notation and tab notation), and with all the information necessary about the right and left hand. After having agreed on the pieces / songs to be worked on, the relevant score is shared and given at the lesson. The teacher goes through it, while he also plays it live to the pupil for even more reach. He then explains what needs to be clarified in order to prepare any homework. Finally, Alex creates a video tutorial about the piece or song that needs to be learned for the next lesson. This gives extra support when practising at home, in order to avoid any doubt and keep motivation up. A report is then created to keep track of what has been done as well as what needs to be worked on, in order to unlock technical requirements and complete a specific repertoire in a constructive and efficient way. Alex teaches in Rotterdam at home or at the pupil's own location ; lessons are in Dutch, English or French, for all ages and levels. The teacher mainly gives live lessons, where he works with his pupils on specific material (technique and repertoire). If for any reason a live lesson can't take place, it is of course possible to follow an online lesson. Lessons last 30 minutes or 45 minutes, weekly or biweekly.

I've organized and paced my bass lessons based on seeing many students learn to play the bass. The goal of lessons is to educate you on how music works and how to create your own basslines and solos, not just to parrot those of others.

Valentina
Have fun by learning how to play the clarinet and discovering how the music works!
Do you want to have fun learning how to play the most beautiful instrument in the world or improve your skills with it? I'd be delighted to do it with you! I'm a classical clarinetist, I have two masters (recently graduated at Codarts) and different experience in orchestra, chamber music and teaching! My goal as a teacher is to stimulate the student to study in order to be at the disposal of music and not a passive player as can happen many times when you undertake a new study. That is why I like to play with my students and organize little private concerts and try-out. Concerning the music theory lessons, I am not going to bore you with long and incomprehensible explanations! We will study it in a fun and effective way! I've been studying music since I'm five years old and I started with the Kodaly method that made me approach music in a very natural way! I hope to see you soon!

Gina
Piano lessons and music theory for every age and every level!
My name is Gina and I teach piano and music theory for more than 5 years to children, teenagers and adults of every age. I consider myself a musician in a more holistic way than just a pianist, having experienced also multiple other instruments such as the viola, the tampouras (traditional byzantine instrument), guitar and voice, as well as different choirs and orchestras. At the age of 21 I gained my first professional degree in music harmony from the Conservatory "EHOGENESIS" and one year after in the classical piano from the Conservatory of Saint-Dimitris. Meanwhile, I was accepted in "The Royal Conservatory" of The Hague, to continue more advanced piano studies. Now I live, study and teach piano in The Hague and surrounding areas! The construction of the lessons is tailored on each student's needs and wishes. I choose pieces and exercises from different books, while guiding the students on practising songs that they personally like. I also provide basic music theory notes and knowledge, to help with the understanding of the piano and music in general. Every lesson is an opportunity to learn something new with main purpose the musicality, expression and enjoyment! The piano lessons are fun and productive at the same time! For the students who want to understand deeper the music, I am also teaching music theory as a separate class. *Lessons take part online (espesially in these Corona times), and also in person. Hope to see you soon!

Piano&Music Lessons by Aleksandra (Buenos Aires-London-Rotterdam)
Piano, harmony, music theory, aural training, arrangements and composition dedicated teacher. Vast experience with different ages and levels, preparation for international exams, auditions and competitions. "I am a superior piano professor and I have started teaching in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my home country, 8 years ago. Recently I was living in London, UK, where I worked as a full-time piano teacher in WKMT Piano Institute where I have trained and developed my pedagogic skills working with students from all around the world. This experience allowed me to mentor from professionals to early ages with very diverse backgrounds. These are the kind of experiences worth working for, and that confirm my engagement to my pedagogic aims. Building structures that fight to give a voice to the speechless is one of the values I learnt to care the most as a working woman, and that is the reason why I feel engaged with teaching music. Music is a tool to learn a whole different language and improve intelligence and creativity, no matter which is your background. Music is a way of finding how to express yourself in a specific language, and it is at the same time a fun and fascinating process. As a music teacher, I face a challenge every time I train a student, because learning music and learning piano implies a very personal developement. I continued this project in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where I became a Master of Music in World Music (Tango-Jazz Composition) at CODARTS University. I intend to keep sharing my knowledge and experience with new students."

Carlos
Guitar , Music , Composition , Theory & Production/Software
More than 25 years of  experience as a professional musician and more than 20 as a teacher and pedagogue have taught me that, alongside a technical and knowledgeable musical upbringing, my teaching can instil in the student a wide sense of musical appreciation. It is my firm belief that music connects to many other areas of learning and may even catalyse the overall pedagogical development of children. Furthermore, my training as a classical composer/arranger and a performer of classical, jazz and world music allows me to create diverse pedagogical scenarios, which fit not just the aspirations of individual students, but also helps me to work with students collectively in ensembles and other kinds of interactive projects. For the past 5 years I have also included many technological advancements (such as DAW software), which allow students to record and produce their own material or practice sessions. Using these techniques, I am able to reach out to each student, introduce new concepts and make sure they enjoy and improve their learning processes.
