*I started teaching to pupils in order to make some pocket money when I was in high school meanwhile studying at the conservatory. I am sort of picky when it comes to work- it has to be something I am really passioned about. Otherwise, I won't give it any valuable input. Whilst graduating from the conservatory I've realized that I really love the process of teaching, therefore, I have been giving lessons over 10 years with a deep passion of inspiring student's mind by showing them the methods of learning, thinking and making music.

Reviews (4)

Good for a beginner. Teaches theory. Patient.
Lora is a great teacher; persistent and serious, yet gentle and very friendly.
Lora is an excellent teacher. She makes learning how to play the piano fun. She is knowledgeable and knows how to adapt to the student's needs.
Lora is everything you would like in a teacher...Knowledgable, encouraging, flexible and probably most important persistent but positive. It was a pleasure watching/hearing my daughter learn and have fun in the process...

PIANO LESSONS: What about learning how to play the piano? (in person and online)
Piano, the instrument used by the romantics to make their most beautiful music, but also by the most experimental and modern composers to create their amazing music. Isn't it a great instrument to play? With more than 5 years of experience teaching in music schools and 8 years as a private piano teacher, I developed an efficient and "fun"-focusing way to teach how to play the instrument. Every student is different, so also the way to play and learn shall be different, which makes every single lesson special and rewarding. I also offer the possibility of teaching in groups: if you want to know more about this option. I hope I become the teacher you want and need!
