Dina brings a lot of life and experience to the piano lesson. My daughter enjoyed it.
Dina is very experienced and extremely talented pianist. She is very patient and has the ability to make her students achieve their full potential with constructive criticism and positive encouragement. I'm very glad we found her after our move to the Netherlands.
Dina is a great tutor and I would definitely recommend her.
Dina is very positive and easygoing. She easily finds common language with children.(my child is 6 y.o.)
After the first lesson the first impression is good. Dina is driven and likes to speed up. So if it's going too fast, say so. She is very nice, friendly and helpful in providing practice materials.

Sarah
Private Classical Piano and Music Theory Lessons taught at pace to suit student's ability.
I offer a diverse class covering all performance elements of classical solo piano, studies of music theory and notation, sight reading, scales, fingering techniques, and eventually learning entire pieces of music to a comfortable performance level. The pace and content of lessons will be influenced by the student's abilities and learning style - to gain a foundational understanding of classical piano, while developing the student's style. Most importantly, my classes allow students to contribute and enjoy their improvement as a beginner/intermediate musician.

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.

Haggai
Music lessons for musicians,Trumpet basics for beginners:how to hold the Trumpet, how to blow, the fingering. Piano basics:chords and scales
Music theory is a cardinal and essential prerequisite for one to become a successful musician in any genre of music. In these lessons you are going to learn about the basic fundamental principles of music And also how to read musical notes.

Arasay

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.

Learn how to play Piano (or Keyboard) at your own pace.
Have you ever wanted to learn to play the piano/keyboard but don't know where to start? Are you regretting giving up learning the piano/keyboard when you were younger? Do you feel that your current progress in playing the piano/keyboard is being held back? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then please contact me. I always try to ensure that each individual student's interests are catered for. If you want to play for pleasure then I will encourage you to learn pieces that you like. Alternatively, if you are more interested in achievement, in terms of taking graded exams, then this is the pathway that we will take. Enjoyment is the key to success as it leads to a desire to practise. So tayloring the class to your needs is absolutely essential and I am very keen to work with you to achieve this goal.

Yolitzin
Piano classes with a teacher with a specialty in pedagogy
My name is Yolitzin, and I have 11 years of experience teaching the instrument. The classes are dynamic and I try to nurture technique, theory, reading notes and mainly the love of music and the pleasure of playing the piano. If you are an adult, I will try to go at your pace according to your study times. If the classes are for children, we will try to encourage the habit of study so that the child grows with the discipline of practice and in a short time can successfully play their favorite pieces of music. The teaching approach consists of the student building their learning based on the experiences they obtain from classes and practice at home. I studied a second career focused on pedagogy, and currently I have a piano studio of more than 20 students who share a love for music and the piano. I organize recitals twice a year to encourage a complete artistic training. You will surely have a lot of fun!

Hey! Have you always wanted to learn to play the piano but aren't sure where to start? Or maybe you just want to take your piano playing to the next level? In either case, you can come to me for piano and theory lessons tailored to your needs! Are you a fan of pop/jazz music rather than classical? We can easily take care of this too!
