Oboe/Music theory/Piano lessons for any age - gain confidence, fulfilment and have fun!

I am a professional oboist with over 20 years of specialised music education in England, Germany, and Belgium and performing experience with some of the best orchestras in the world including the London Symphony Orchestra, Gurzenich Orchestra in Koln, and National Orchestra of Belgium.
I have experience teaching young children, teenagers, and adults as well as giving group lessons. I offer private one on one lessons either in my home or yours (and at the moment via webcam) with a focus on fun, musical fluency, gaining confidence in technique, and learning repertoire.
Whether you're a complete beginner or more advanced, feel free to take some lessons with me and we can work on whatever area you would like to improve on. I believe that learning an instrument should be fun and enjoyable so lessons are student-centred and always with an encouraging atmosphere.

I also offer music theory lessons for school children to support their musical education and any exams they might be taking.

Piano lessons for the complete beginner - my main instrument is the oboe but if you'd like to start learning the piano, I can give lessons in your home and get you started with the basics!

Extra information

If you already have an oboe, please bring it along with reeds and whatever music you are working on. If you are a complete beginner, please let me know and I will help you find an affordable instrument to rent, and also provide you with reeds and sheet music to get you started.
Music theory lessons - please bring any material that you have.
Piano lessons - only available at students' homes.

About Me

I believe that lessons should always be enjoyable and that the relationship between teacher and student should be one based on trust and cooperation. I want to help you achieve any goals you might have, whilst encouraging you to improve and get the most out of the oboe (or music theory/piano).
I am friendly, encouraging, and professional - I prepare lesson material in advance and there will always be a focus on playing and repertoire. I believe that good technique is essential but I want my students to have fun and form positive associations with music, rather than seeing it as something else they 'have' to do.
I encourage students to tell me what they enjoy and what they would like to focus on, but can also give guidance and structure to the course of lessons so that students are clear on what they are aiming for!
Lessons should never be scary or stressful - I want students to feel confident and to come away from lessons feeling like they've accomplished something in a supportive and friendly atmosphere.

Would you like help with your English? Do you have an exam you need to take? Would you like some conversational practice? Or perhaps you want some help with school classes? Whatever the area you would like help with, whether it's fluency, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, or just feeling more confident in the language - I am here to help! I am an English born, CELTA certified, experienced language teacher who can help you prepare for exams, improve your accent and language knowledge, and gain more confidence in any of the skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing). I have taught classes and also individuals, and can design a course of lessons for you or help you with material you already have. I like to use authentic materials (newspaper articles, blog posts, youtube videos, radio shows) as well as making my own activities and adapting some from coursebooks. My lessons are student-centred, so there is an emphasis on the student doing the talking rather than me giving a lot of lectures about grammar points!

Giorgos
I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Sara
Piano lessons given by concert pianist with four postgraduate diplomas
Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after many years of experience in teaching at different levels and aspirations of students, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns while getting to know basis of classical harmony. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master degree, as well as two different Postgraduate degrees and two different Concert musician diplomas in special program for gifted concert artists at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

I'm a 24-year-old Canadian and Greek Master's student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel offering individualized piano lessons in English, French and Greek to students of all ages and levels in a friendly and encouraging environment. Throughout my studies I have obtained plenty of teaching experience in multiple countries and languages giving private lessons, teaching at music schools and at International seminars.
