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.

Extra information

For our class you will need a Skype account, or we can do it with Google Meet, you will choose.
Don't worry about the development of the lesson :) I will explain you everything as many times as you need it. Also, you will be able to see me and hear me very well, as the studio is provided with multi-cameras and microphones!

About Me

Hello!
I'm Gema, a piano teacher with +10 years of experience. I've worked with children mostly, but also with adults. In fact, my first experience as a teacher/conductor was in a Senior Choir, where I first learned how to conduct choirs in a professional way. Concerning my experience with kids, I really started to teach children around 7 years ago. My youngest piano student is currently 3 years old. I really like to teach small beginners, as everything for them is a fun exploration game. Something I also enjoy very much, is to work with students from different parts of the world, learning about their culture and their languages. That's why I will give you the choice to practice 4 languages with me: Spanish, Galician (very close to Portuguese), English and French (German is still on its way).
During these last years, I've been combining my activity as a teacher with the concerts (played in several countries in Europe). Thanks to this COVID situation (at least I could get something good out of it) I've been able to focus on online teaching. All these months of isolation have given me the result of being provided with a great audio/video system. That's why if you try a lesson with me, you will be able to see multiple cameras and microphones, aswell as the score of the piece that we will be working on :)

My experience right now with Gema is that she's an amazing teacher and she is good at spotting mistakes on your keys and helps me to play with confidence to get ready to pass my exam.
Tres bonne pédagogie
Les cours avec Gema sont géniaux. Je ne peux pas demander de plus. J'aime sa joie et sa spontanéité. Les partissions sont difficiles mais elle arrive à me canaliser et à me motiver pour me focuser sur les tâches à faire. Les techniques sont simples qu'elle donne. Je suis tellement ravie et honorée de la connaître comme personne de coeur. Et je suis très contente des prestations qui sont bien plus que ce que je pensais. Mon expérience est assez récente. Le piano est venue à moi en 2018 après un voyage en Italie et puis j'ai commencé en 2019 des cours. Tout un cheminement avec des difficultés à trouver un professeur pendant cette crise sanitaire que nous vivons tous ensemble. Merci Gema merci la musique c'est la vie. Elle m'aide à aller tous les jours mieux. Bisous
Gema is an enthusiastic and outgoing teacher.She really gave me a lot of support and made me feel warm!!!
My daughter loves her

Virginia
Cello classes, musical language or theory. Made to measure and at home
Cello teacher with training and work experience. Specialized in general cello learning, in addition, orchestral repertoire work and chamber music. My methodology is very varied. I keep in mind that there are many people who want to learn to play the instrument without professional goals and therefore I will always focus on advancing content through personalized music for each student. Satisfaction is high both mine to see the progress of my students and theirs, since they are still my students !!

John
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.

Maria
Fast progress piano lessons with the effective Russian method
Welcome to my online Piano Class. I will happily help you achieve your musical goals, from the basic fundamentals of piano playing (reading music, positioning your hand on the keys) to building a wonderful sound and technique, allowing you to play any song. I respect all students, I listen to their concerns and I am always happy and creative in helping them express themselves through music.

Hernan
Berklee Graduate offers private lessons of Film Scoring, Music Production, Orchestration & Arranging in Utrecht
The way I teach actually depends entirely on the student. The way I explain the concepts, plan and structure the lessons and approach each subject all depends on whether the student is a beginner, intermediate or advanced, and whether he or she has some experience on the subject. Each student has different needs and different abilities. It's just a matter of getting to know the student, in order to identify both the weaknesses and strengths on which to work.

Daniel
Learn Solfège, improvisation, composition and harmony
I am a multi-instrumentalist (saxophone, transverse flute, keyboard), composer and arranger (SACEM member since 2012), excellent improviser. This course will allow you quickly, whatever your instrument and your technical level, to understand and master the chord sequences and the articulation of musical language according to these sequences. In addition, you will learn the most frequent or rare harmonic structures used by composers. And, theory notwithstanding, you will learn to develop your ear to identify harmonic structures. This course also includes an introduction to the history of jazz.

Dina

Dominyka
Piano and Music Theory Lessons with a Certified Teacher (Beginner/Intermediate levels)
Dominyka is a professional musician: a singer, singing and piano teacher that is currently based in The Hague. She plays piano, violin and writes her own music. Over the past decade she graduated from the Royal Conservatory in The Netherlands with Bachelor's and Master's degree in jazz singing and in pedagogical minor studies. I am very communicative and patient. As I hear from my students, they say that they enjoy my classes very much! I believe that each student should embrace what they would love to play, and I would consider to be open to what student wishes to play. I am very adaptable with my teaching methods to each individual because everybody process information differently! You can expect to have a great time, and learn each lesson something new! In my lessons: * You will learn how to read the notes * You will learn how to read the chord symbols * You will learn how to play chord progressions * You will learn how to play melodies with both hands * You will develop the rhythm sense * You will learn how to connect your emotions into your playing * You will be confident on how to practise on your own * You will learn how to control dynamics * You will be able to accompany yourself * You will increase your memory * You will be fluent in music notation * You will learn to improvise * You will feel freedom while playing See you soon!

Music lessons, private lessons, easy and fun
Musicwonderland is easy and enjoyable and with great enthusiasm :) Violinwonderland, easy and fun. After a great international career, I love to teach everyone the violin! It's easy and based on the right moves that give the right sound directly :)

Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Andreina
Classical singing lessons, voice lessons, breathing technique.
I'm a faithfull believer that everyone can learn how to sing beautifly. We are all diamonds and we all have great voices hidden inside. I want to help you find it and develop it. I you alow me i can be a personal trainer for your voice. Whether you are someone who just loves to sing or someone looking to start a professional career, voice lessons are a necessary option for exploring more of yourself and your passion. This technique allows artists from any age and level to transfer healthy, and connected singing in all different genres. My lessons are geared to tend to the individual needs and goals of the individual student.

Transcribe any audio to the sheet music and learn how to play it (Beginners)
You have a favourite song, and want to play that on your instrument but don't have the sheet music? It's not a problem! I can help you to transcribe the music and write it using a special software on my computer. You will get your own version which is written especially for you according your level and your skills. If you are accordionist I can help you to read the sheet music and learn the song you chose.

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.
