Piano Lessons, jazz, improvisation, harmony and ear training.

Hi! it's Álvaro from Spain. I'm a pianist and composer focused in jazz and improvisation.
After years of teaching experience, I direct my classes to ear training, harmony, and developing your intuition as an improviser. We can also work on sightreading or more technical issues. I teach at my own rehearsal space in Manhattan or I can also go visit you.

Harp and theory lessons for everyone with a professional harpist.
I'm a professional harpist from France, passionate about the harp since I'm a child, it would be a pleasure to share and help you to learn more about this beautiful instrument. I taught 8 years when I was living in Belgium and I always loved sharing my knowledge about the harp with my student. I like the lessons to be enjoyed by them and their way of doing things.

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.

LEARN TO LISTEN TO SEVERAL NOTES/VOICES AT ONCE WITH A HIGHLY TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED FRENCH CONSERVATORY PROFESSOR
All levels (from beginners to graduate students and professionals). All ages. When? Please drop me a line and we will try and find a time for you. Listening to several voices at once certainly is one of the most rewarding skills a musician can have, or can acquire. And, no, this is not only for those who are born with this gift. If you listen to music without being able to discriminate precisely the different layers of sound, you already know music is beautiful. I was like that a couple years ago. (Well, provided my gray hair, it must actually be many years ago). I can surely say that being able to listen to several voices at once has brought me much joy! Music became absolutely wonderful! When you can precisely hear the various voices, then you become aware of all the notes that are played, as if some nice new lights were shed on the music. Not only can you enjoy the music more, but as you play you can now shape all the voices in the best possible way, or if you play a duo for instance, you can be sensitive to the way the other musician plays, and musically respond to his or her interpretation. As a musician, that is a life-changing experience, a “must!” That can be learned, slowly but surely, with method. Now, when I say slowly but surely, I talk about mastery. But if we are talking about being able to listen for the first time to an additional note at once, this is usually quite quick (I'd say one lesson, two weeks at most). So, what can we work on? Harmonic intervals, recognizing chords, discriminating notes within a 4 voice chord or aggregate (i.e. hearing the precise voicing of an isolated chord), learning to listen to counterpoint precisely, you name it. That should be based on where you are at, and what you would like to achieve. Anything is possible. Let's talk about it and get started! Although perhaps you want to know this first: My students often tell me I am very patient. I'd rather say I am understanding and straightforward. Actually, please know that I am also demanding: While there is no difficulty that I cannot understand, (and I found it absolutely thrilling to find a solution when the student seems stuck) yet I am not interested in approximation. If after reading this, you are still interested, please drop me a line! I am here to share my passion with you! Sincerely, YOUR Prof. PS: I use fixed DO solfège (French way), but if you don't that's okay!

Mary
Instrumental Teacher ( Piano, Guitar, Bass & Ukulele)
Welcome to the music class! Here, we are gonna discover the wonders of learning an instrument. From reading note letters, implementing a proper form to sight reading a piece, we are gonna learn in our own pace. If you're just learning music now and it feels like there's a lot to understand, don't worry we're gonna start from the basics. I will help you understand music and its elements. With your dedication and my guidance, I'm positive that we will get a good result!

Cheslava
Piano and Singing tutor with 5 years experience and professional education
From my childhood I have been studying music and art: sang in choir and solo, played piano, painted, studied music history and literature, solfeggio. Later in college I have also learned choir conducting, had ensemble and choir singing lessons, cultural studies. During last year in university I had pedagogy practice at university and at private art school (where I worked as a music tutor before the war - piano, voice). I truly enjoyed working with students. They all were different age (8 - 40+ years old) and level. But all were very interesting and work was pleasant. My education was very various: my core subjects were conducting, choir, voice, piano. So it allowed me to work with children, teens and adults with quite wide range of interests and needs: some students needed/wanted to learn particular composition(s), sometimes pop songs arrangements, some were interested in “introduction” to the music, some wanted to renew skills they gained in their childhood and continue their journey to the music world. In addition I prepared presentations (which contained information about cultural and historical background and musical and character/art analysis). So after graduation from choir conducting faculty (which allowed me to deepen my knowledge in many important compatible branches) I concentrated on studying classical singing and piano, expanded my cultural studies and analysis knowledge, practiced solfeggio and harmony.

Getting to Grips with Music Theory is simpler than you think!
The theory of everything tends to be really scary and music theory can be too. I am very keen to make music theory easy for everyone. For some people there is only one way to tackle the unmentionable but I believe there are many different approaches and one of them will click with you. It is simply finding out what is best for each person. Once we find the key we can unlock the problems that have puzzled you for ages. Music theory needs to be more than a requirement, it needs to be the way to really appreciate the music you are playing. If you struggle with music theory then this is the class for you - why not give it a try?

Richard
private guitar lessons for every level: from basic chords to out of the box improvisation
hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else! Be sure to let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. see you soon! Richard (PS: my specified hours are a guideline, if this does not suit you, you can certainly send us a message and we will try to arrange something.)
