Piano Lessons for Levels Beginner-Advanced, Classical and Contemporary styles

I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.

Generally, I provide an personal approach which is curated to fit each student's specific needs and musical interests, providing pieces which suit each student's individual personality. With that in mind, I emphasize good technique and skills, so that the playing experience can be with a stable level of ease and enjoyment. I also enjoy discovering new pieces with my students, who are always free to bring in repertoire (classical and contemporary) that sparks their curiosity.

Great, knowledgeable teacher who was very patient with my daughter!
I had my first lesson today and I was immediately struck with the feeling that I am in the presence of a maestro in Piano playing, a professor in teaching and an extremely patient pedagogue. It was like Lydia knew me for years and instantaneously detected my strengths and my weaknesses in my piano playing and practice. I am an adult student and I highly recommend Lydia for all ages and all levels. An exceptional teacher that provides and exceptional lesson experience.
Lydia is a very good teacher, and I am sure I will learn a lot from her. She is furthermore very kind and very patient!
Awesome classes! I hiighly recommended Lydia as a teacher

Blanca Graciá
Piano lessons for children and adults. Also online.
Hello everyone! My name is Blanca and I am a Master student in the Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen. I offer private music and piano lessons, at your place or even online. I have been teaching children and adults since I am 17, and I have been working in a lot of private schools, as well my own private students. I can adapt the contect to every level, and for me it's quite important the communication in during the lessons, and the goals we want to achieve. I can teach in Spanish (is my mother tongue), english or even German. If you have any question don't hesitate

Stefan
Piano lessons for acquiring and/or improving piano skills
In my class, I teach piano in a way that allows you to make progress on your own. "Don't give a man a fish, instead teach him how to fish," is the idea here. My methods include, besides basics, approaches to expressing your own musicality, stable memorization, practice habits and efficiency, technical ease, focus exercises, body awareness, and stage fright. Hence, I am best suited for intermediate and advanced students that have the desire to either study piano on a collegiate level or make significant improvements for themselves. I would like to add at this point that I have a special affinity for the concert etudes by Frédéric Chopin. However, I am perfectly happy to start with students from the very beginning as well and regardless, I will adjust to my student's needs upon mutual agreement. My free times that I listed as available are a rough estimate, lesson times are normally negotiable.

Irene Cervera
Music and Cello (violoncello) lessons for people all ages
I am a Master student of Violoncello in the Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen and I offer private music and cello lessons! I have experience teaching to children all ages and adults too. We can also organize music lessons for small groups of children (friends, family...) I am very enthusiastic and I adapt the content to your level. I will start learning Dutch as well, so soon enough I will be able to do the lessons in Dutch too!

Ana Margarida
VIOLIN LESSONS TO ALL AGES! (online or in person, in Antwerp)
Professional violinist graduated at Koninklijk Conservatorium Antwerpen, with 5 years of teaching experience, offers violin and general music education to people of all ages. The method used is adapted to the student's needs. The main focus is the student's interests and difficulties. To play an instrument, the student needs to be comfortable and enjoy the moment, and for me, that's the most important, to keep the interest! Please contact me if you are interested!

Stijn
Piano lessons to learn how to play the piano well for all levels
In my course I'm offering to share my knowledge and passion with you, whether your preference lies with classical or otherwise. I work best with more advanced students to be able to go more in depth but would be happy to welcome any level of playing in my class. In a way I'd like to think that everything is in connection with everything else. A musician is not only a musician, but also a painter, poet, dancer (though in my case that last one can't be taken literally) and even a scientist. Why do I say this? Because I can teach you how to observe and learn from these connections which will improve your musicality, problem solving skills, technical skills, memorisation and many other aspects of your music playing - and life in general. Welcome to my class!

Method of Independence for The Modern Marimaplayer
I want to make the marimba student aware of the different sounds that a marimba can produce, by using those sounds I want to improve his technique and teach him to phrasing. All this from relaxation, because many percussionists are not aware 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 one suits you best. I teach both beginners and advanced students.

Learn now to play modern and classical piano pieces !
I specialized in teaching piano and performing. My goal is to keep you challenged and curious for more! This class is to learn to play classical and modern piano in a relax and fresh way! If you are a beginner or have not played in many years, do not worry, it is never too late!

Simone
Classical Piano Lessons with Progress and Fun Guaranteed
Dear Piano teacher searchers ! The most important element of my lesson is playfulness. Playing the piano will be more important than talking about technique. I love to see technique as a gateway to playing or a reflection of it. But the central focus of my lesson is exploring yourself what you can do with the instrument, I am only there to give you tools to explore with. For me it is important that there is a long-term benefit so that at one point you can take a sheet of music and play without a teacher. I want to give my students tools for independent learning which includes effective methods of reading notes and understanding the rhetoric and structure of the music so that at the end you have the freedom of interpreting your own way. There will not be “You have to play it like that” without any explanation. I did my bachelor in music education in Germany and now I finished my bachelor in piano performance in the Conservatory of Antwerp. I have had many great teachers on the way, and everybody gave me another focus in music. That's why it depends completely on the students needs what my lesson focuses on. It can be hand, finger and body movement so you don't injure yourself/ how to get a juicer sound/ understanding the principles of music/ why it's written like that/ how to listen etc., but of course, all lessons are a mix and match of different aspects! I wish you all the best for your music interest! If you are interested in a lesson or have any further questions write me a message! Simone

Professional violinist is giving lessons of violin online! Learn to play violin and enjoy every lesson! 😊
In this violin course you will learn a foundation in learning one of the most rewarding instruments in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Grip the bow, hold the violin, have the perfect hand position and enjoy playing the strings while learning how to read the notes, the violin rhythm and technique. Students will generally learn better if they feel a connection developing with their teacher, whether that’s through humour, showing care about their development, or making sure teacher devote time equally to all students when in a group. You will not regret. 😊

Individual Music and singing lessons for children 4-12 years and music Theory. Individuele muziek- en zanglessen met theorie. Online too.
Houd je van zingen? Of loop je de hele dag met liedjes in je hoofd? Kom dan op zangles bij Deborah online of in Amstelveen Westwijk. We zingen liedjes uit verschillende landen en tijden. Ook gaan we aan de slag met verschillende ritmes, noten en toonoefeningen. Als je bezig bent met zingen kan je even al het andere loslaten en dat geeft een heerlijk gevoel van ontspanning waardoor je de rest van de dag extra energie hebt. Je lichaam is je instrument bij het zingen. We proberen dat instrument zo mooi mogelijk te laten klinken.. Tijdens de zanglessen zijn we ook bezig met articulatie, de uitspraak van vreemde talen en ook aan de betekenis van en je gevoel bij een bepaald stuk. Natuurlijk bepalen we samen wat voor soort muziek je gaat zingen. Ook maken we samen een ontdekkingsreis naar jouw favoriete muziek. WIE KAN ER LEREN ZINGEN? Iedereen kan leren zingen. Door de zanglessen zal je merken dat het zingen makkelijker wordt. Bovendien is zingen goed voor ontspanning, zowel van lichaam als geest. Zingen is gewoon genieten!

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

Vasyl
