    Classical and pop piano lessons, music theory and solfège (Russian method of training perfect pitch)

    I have been playing the piano since I was five. I graduated from a specialized music school in Kiev and now I am a student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I teach both, classical and pop music. I have a very positive approach in teaching and will try to generate a motivating environment, as I understand that learning piano can be frustrating for some! My goal is to help you enjoy piano as well as seeing steady progress.

    About Me

    For me, teaching is always a lot of fun! Especially, when after my explanation students start to realize how easy it is to do things which they were dreaming about. It also happened to me when I had to deal with the same problems. Since I have always been a classical pianist, it seemed to be impossible to do nontraditional things like improvising, writing music, having fun with other musicians by playing with them, music which we hear right now. The problem is that I didn't have a teacher who would share with me his/her experience, so my way was pretty long. I had to practice really hard and search for solutions at the lowest stages on my own, which caused finding out personal tricks which I am always so happy to share with my pupils. It brings such a joy to watch how students apply my experience and overcome challenges which they were struggling with before.

    The story of my classical music development is completely different since I was always very lucky to have the best teachers. Right now I am studying from Naum Grubert who is considered one of the best musicians in Europe. After two years of classes with him, my understanding of music completely changed! Every lesson I receive new discoveries which I am also so happy to share with my students!

    Education

    I graduated from the specialized music school in Kiev (2007-2018), and right now I am a 3rd-year bachelor student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (classical piano department):

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have been playing the piano from 5 years old. During studying in Kiev I was actively taking part in international projects such as:
    • Richter piano competition
    • Horowitz piano competition
    • International festival "Moscow meets friends" organized by Vladimir Spivakov
    • Chamber music festival and masterclasses in Ede organized by Anna Fedorova, etc.
    After moving to Amsterdam and starting my study at the conservatory, I gained a lot of experience in pop music by playing at church every Sunday and performing background events. Now I teach private students for both, pop and classical music.

    Piano Inside Out - a complete introduction to understanding and playing piano
    | Amsterdam or Haarlem | This class is defined by flexibility. I will teach you anything from inner workings of a piano, all the way to Liszt pieces, improvisation, analysis, sight-reading or arranging popular songs. The first lesson is reserved for my professional assessment and your exclamation of certain wishes - on what you would like to learn and at what pace. I send all relevant material before each lesson (including scores, infographics, or further reading material), so be prepared to have it with you when the time arrives! My mode of doing things is 'per lesson' - in other words - depending on your free time and spirit - with very flexible timing (regardless of the specified 'duration' of lessons).

    Aron
    Piano lessons for all ages and styles? Look no further!
    Looking for educational, versatile and fun piano lessons? Look no further. My name is Áron and I am a 26-year-old performing artist and educator from Hungary. I have been playing the piano for over 18 years and I have taught students of all ages, from beginners to advanced musicians. What can you expect from your piano classes with me? My main goal, apart from teaching the technique, theory and repertoire, is to show students how much joy music can bring to their life and to let them expand their own musical ideas. You will be able to discover the importance of musicality, artistry, the role of music in our life, the attitude of playing, listening, composing and experimenting with new sounds. STRUCTURE BY LEVEL Beginner* I have got my own techniques of teaching kids (lots of colors, shapes, children songs), as well as adult beginners. What’s most important in this stage is to let the student enjoy the sound of the piano, and be satisfied and motivated after a lesson. Together we will work on a certain repertoire that will help you improve your technique and hearing skills, develop your musical knowledge and creativity. Intermediate* With students of this level, we will work more on perfecting the harmony, technique, and transcription. You will learn how to improvise a more challenging repertoire that requires the practice of both technique and music analysis. Advanced* Depending on your goal, I am going to help you develop a certain part of your piano playing. We are going to dive into details of harmony (jazz harmony), improvisational skills, compositional skills, stage skills and more. *Classes can be tailored to your needs and particular areas of interest if needed. I hope you are excited to explore music together! :) Feel free to reach me at if you have any questions.
