    - BIO -
    Valerija is a musician from Latvia currently living and creating in Berlin, Germany.
    She started her music path back in 2011 when she applied for music school and successfully graduated from it in 2016 with audio-visual show back in Latvia. In 2016, in collaboration with local art fund Cita Abra she started to record her songs and lived in art residency in the woods.
    She went on travel to USA in the beginning of 2017 to have new vision on life. It changed her life – in few months, she took a risk to hitchhike through Europe and play on the streets of Paris, Ghent and The Hague in the summer of 2017. When she is bored she is just travelling around, writing poetry and reading Dostoevsky.
    Her first EP (“STUCK IN MELANCHOLY”) went out in the end of the same year after moving to Holland and is available on Spotify, iTunes and Youtube.
    Right now she has just returned from travel to Africa and she is looking forward to new life of Berlin and new experiments.

I have a bachelor’s degree in jazz guitar from Leeds College of Music although I also play and teach rock, pop, funk, folk and indie music. In lessons I aim to get students playing something they know as soon as possible in order to get excited about progress early on. We balance this with paying attention to proper technique and having one eye on the theory behind what we are playing to broaden your understand of how music works. I am actively engaged in playing within the music scene and have a real excitement for all types of music, whether it’s learning your first chords on guitar or working on improvisation or music theory. We'll go at the right pace for you and achieve your goals together. I have experience teaching all ages and abilities of students, having taught in primary and secondary schools as well as private tuition for adults.

    Marianna
    Classical guitar lessons in Berlin with professional musician
    Hello, My name is Marianna and I am 27 years old. I am currently pursuing my music studies in the Universität der Künste Berlin. From a young age, I got very passionate about classical guitar and started off at the age of 10 . I formally commenced my music studies at the State Conservatory Of Athens , graduating with the highest distinction. Along with my music studies , I studied International and European Economics graduating from the Athens University. During my studies , I was teaching private guitar lessons. This experience provided the ideal platform to continue my music studies in Brussels and now in Berlin I teach classical guitar using scores, not tablatures. All students from the very first lesson use the instrument . My method with my students is to develop bases to approach a musical score through the knowledge of solfeggio and theory . I am able to teach in English and Greek having also a basic knowledge of French and German. I can travel throughout Berlin Region. Thank you, Marianna

    Piano, Music theory lessons in English for all ages and levels.
    I am a highly motivated and enthusiastic piano teacher from South Korea with an experience working with students from a diverse range of backgrounds and ages. After graduating from a university in Seoul in South Korea with a B.A. in classical piano, I taught piano to foreign students in English not only in Korean. Since September 2017, I have been working as a piano teacher at this beautiful music school in Berlin. I am teaching piano to 18 students using English and a decent amount of German. I create professional, tailored and individual lesson plans for a diverse range of various students. In lessons, I engage actively with students and focuse on improving posture, developing practice strategies (i.e. utilizing various rhythm patterns on difficult, technical passages), and setting regular practice times, while also building a positive and encouraging atmosphere. I am a strong interpersonal communicator and I am passionate about helping my students grow and realize their full potential. I teach with love, patience, and encouragement, and I have a strong flexibility to adapt to novel circumstances. I give piano lessons at a music school in Reinickendorf in Berlin and I also occasionally offer piano lessons in student's own home in Berlin.

    I have studied Piano Performance and Musicology at top universities in the UK and graduated with distinction. I have 4 years of teaching experience and a teaching certificate from the Royal Academy of Music in London as well as an ABRSM Diploma certificate for Piano Performance.

You or your child will learn to become a complete musician, with not only performance techniques but also other highly transformative abilities: sightreading skills, aural skills, theory knowledge and above all, good taste in music. My scheduling is very flexible. All levels are welcome.

    Guitar lessons (Acoustic, Electric, and Bass) and music composition
    The Guitar is undoubtedly one of the most popular instruments of the modern age. It is so versatile and used in many genres ranging from Classical music, to Death Metal and even Electronic Music. I will teach you the basics of playing the guitar, and I'll spice it up later with my experience on composition and song-writing. We will learn by example through the famous songs that shaped our understanding of the guitar. Whether you prefer singer-songwriter style songs, or thrash metal we'll get there together. I will teach mainly using the guitar tablature format, we can do sheet music which is generally unneeded for anything besides classical, but I will need refresh my music sheet reading skills as I haven't had to read any in the last 10 years.

    Cours particuliers de violon - débutants ou intermédiaires
    Jeune étudiante française en échange à la Freie Universität à Berlin, j'ai étudié le violon en conservatoire en France et y ai obtenu le DEM de violon et le prix de Perfectionnement de musique de chambre. Je joue régulièrement en orchestre et en quatuor à cordes depuis plus de neuf ans. Aux débutants, je propose d'enseigner les bases du violon, et, si vous le souhaitez, du solfège et de la culture musicale classique, avec des petits morceaux et des exercices ludiques qui vous permettront de bien commencer la musique! A ceux qui ont déjà commencé la musique, j'essaierai d'apporter, outre des astuces techniques, un travail sur l'expression musicale. Je vous proposerai d'aborder le répertoire classique ou moderne, selon vos souhaits, tout en améliorant votre agilité! Je peux enseigner en français ou en anglais, et éventuellement expliquer brièvement en allemand.
