Piano Lessons—Classical and Contemporary (ages 6-adult)

Hello! Welcome to my piano teaching platform through Apprentus. I am a classically-trained pianist, currently studying the Postgraduate Concertsoloist program at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerpen. I previously received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in piano performance in the United States (University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth). My resume includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. In addition to my own training, I have taught piano professionally for 12 yrs, all levels and ages, as well as adult group class during my masters degree. My students regularly perform in many recitals, and I promote a spirit of fun and positive music-making with all my students, no matter the level or age :) Upon request, I can also prepare students for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) piano exams.

About Me

Music is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others—particularly my students! I teach a variety of styles, although my own training is classical. Generally, I choose music that fits the student’s level and personality—every student is very different! With that in mind, I emphasize good technique and skills, so that the playing experience can be with a certain amount of ease and enjoyment. I also love to learn new pieces (modern and Classical) from my students themselves, so music requests from my students are encouraged :)

Bachelor of Music: Piano Performance (Graduating Summa Cum Laude) at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, TX, USA

Master of Music: Piano Performance at University if Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Violin Lessons: begginers, intermediate and advanced levels, all ages
I start playing violin when I was 5 years-old, and since then I never stoped. I thank my first teachers for passing me the entusiasm, passion and love for playing violin when I was a child. So... I would love to pass the same feeling to my students, to have fun while playing violin and learning new music! In my first years playing violin, I followed the Susuki Method (you can find more information about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_method), and I find it really interesting for begginers (till intermediate students), since it really gives good basis and also keeps the students motivated (because of the repertoire, of playing together...). >Beginners: my idea is to introduce the student to Susuki Method, and to follow it after. If the student wants to pursue another Method, we can search together and see the best way to suit the student needs. >Intermediate/Advanced: first, my idea is to see the level of the student, and what the student expects from violin lessons (just learning for fun, hobby; amateur-musian; guidance for study; prepare for auditions; concerts;...). After that, the programme and lessons should be develop according to student needs. If possible I would also like to do group lessons (with all the students), because I find it really important to do music together and share experiences.

Method of Independence for The Modern Marimaplayer
I try to make the Marimba student aware of the different sounds that a marimba can produce, on the basis of those sounds I want to improve his technique and learn how to phrase it. All this from relaxation, because many percussionists are unaware of how much tension there is in their body when they play, and in which places. We also look at the different techniques that are possible on the marimba and we look for which suits you best. I teach both beginners and advanced students.
