    About Me

    I am an opening minded individual who is not afraid of being wrong. I have just moved to Germany from Ireland where I have been teaching music for the last four years.

    My teaching is focused on giving my students the tools they need to teach themselves, guiding students to their own conclusions rather than forcing my own on them. My teaching philosophy is largely based on ideas from the 'Art of Learning' by Joshua Waitzkin, the Suzuki method, and my own observations of the learning process.

    I am happy to teach whichever genre the student and parent collectively decide. I can teach classical, jazz and popular genres. I include theory in all my lessons, how much I focus on this depends on the student.

    I make a big effort to always be friendly, patient and welcoming in all my lessons.

    Leaving Certificate, Presentation College Athenry, Galway, Ireland.
    Bachelors of Music (Performance) from the Conservatory of Music and Drama, Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin, Ireland.

    Music Theory, Ear-Training, and Composition Lessons in English
    Whether you're looking to improve your overall musicianship as an already-seasoned musician or learn the basics, I am ready to work with you! As an active composer, performer, and music educator with a Master's Degree, I have years of teaching experience with various ages and levels. Theory topics can range from counterpoint, form and analysis, triads, harmonization, figured bass, 12-tone analysis, to introduction to note-reading, patterns, and more. We'll examine various repertoire from the Baroque through the music of today. Ear-Training instruction can include a mixture of sight-singing, rhythm exercises, melodic/harmonic dictation, chord recognition, and more. Composition lessons will be centered around developing and expanding your compositional voice, with special attention to form, theatricality, expression, and understanding of instruments. Your lessons will be designed to fit your personal level and goals! I bring 15 years of composition experience, 14 years piano study, and 13 years of intensive vocal training to my work as a theory, ear-training, and composition educator.

    Philip
    Guitar and Improvisation - 18 years musical experience
    My name is Philip and I’m a guitarist with 18 years of experience playing Jazz, Blues, Funk, Pop and Finger-style. I have worked internationally as a bandleader, accompanist and solo performer. Now, there's a lot of music teachers out there, but the vast majority of them take the same old approach to teaching. They'll teach you scales, theory, chords - you name it. But that's all just information, and information alone does not make a great musician. This is what sets me apart as a music teacher. Instead of taking the conventional "information-based" approach to teaching, I take a much more balanced and pragmatic approach. This means that in addition to learning all kinds of information, we will also be taking a deep dive into the PRINCIPLES which underpin that information. But even more importantly, we will be learning about the MIND, BRAIN and BODY - how they relate to music and how we can harness them so as to reach our highest musical potential. My approach is informed by years of research into areas such as neuroscience, psychology, philosophy and meditation. And as a university student of philosophy and psychology, I have written extensively in these areas. This background has allowed me to develop a truly holistic approach to music, one which promises not only faster improvement, but also greater musical EASE, ENJOYMENT and CREATIVITY. Philip

    Joshua
    Want to learn modern popular music instead of old classical?
    Want to take learn piano but not keen on the classical music part? No worries! I offer piano lessons focusing on popular music styles that will help you build your confidence and have you performing in front of others in no time. This is perfect for teenagers or adults who want to learn but aren't interested in learning classical pieces. I only offer 1 / 1,5 / 2-hour sessions to give us plenty of time to work on the techniques, and, ideally, play a whole song during a single session.

You will learn bit by bit how to play your favorite songs through coordination, tempo, sound and improvisation exercises. I am a 34 year old Spanish musician with a degree in drums (Barcelona) and music teacher (Huelva) who currently lives in Berlin. I have 12 years experience teaching drums and 18 years performing and recording. My passion is music and I love to pass this passion on to my students through my lessons. The lessons are carried out with a mask and with regular negative tests. Online lessons are also possible.

After studying in my youth with bass guitar innovators Matthew Garrison, Dominique Di Piazza, Skuli Sverrisson, at Berklee College of Music and privately with Jazz theory and Improvisation guru Hal Crook and after almost 20 years of playing professionally all around the world with amazing people I´ve accumulated tons of invaluable lessons ready to be shared with my students.

    Andrea
    Classical Guitar Lessons from Conservatorium-Trained Teacher
    Hi, I’m Andrea! I’m a professional classical guitar performer and educator from Sydney, Australia. I have been developing my music teaching business for over 9 years, through which I teach a wide range of styles, levels, and ages. Lessons are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each student, whether the focus is on classical guitar performance, chords, pop/rock, or Spanish-style fingerpicking. Music theory, composition, songwriting, improvisation, sight-reading, and preparation for high school exams or University auditions are all options that can be incorporated into lessons. I have plenty of experience with young children and teenagers as well as adults, from complete beginners to advanced players. My teaching philosophy is holistic in that I strive to help my students become well-rounded musicians with a range of listening, reading, improvisation, and analytical skills, while of course carefully choosing repertoire that will cater to the student’s taste as well as their abilities. Pop/rock guitar and jazz/blues improvisation are also options as well as classical training.

    Francisco
    Guitar/Music/Composition Lessons in Berlin (All ages and all levels welcome!)
    Hello! Alright I'll break it down by parts. If you look for a more "narrowed description" just scroll down where I made a list :) My name is Francisco, and I'm a guitar player from Argentina, currently living in Berlin. I am very enthusiastic about teaching and sharing the energy to grow musically to my students. I have taught music for 7 years in schools and privately at home. With private lessons my aim is to adjust to the student likes and abilities. I am attentive to the needs and the reasons why someone is wanting to play and learn music. And I try to encourage the curiosity and spirit of making music and not follow what is "considered" that you should learn. What to expect from the first lesson with me? To get to know each other. That way I see what you like and what you don't, what you already play, and your learning pace. And probably I can share with you something new already, and from there, we will build a "program" according to what you want and your rhythm, and time availability. I value singularity and I like to get to know who I teach, so that way I can help them better. It can be first chords and ways of learning new songs, or improvisational tools, or pure harmony and theory stuff. Because everyone is different, for example, if you like Rock I will go in that direction and teach you the elements that make Rock sound like it does and I won't teach you Jazz Harmony, if you like Classical music we will go over the abilities that you have to have to execute this kind of music, the same goes for the styles that I play. My skills: I play and have played mainly Fingerstyle Guitar, Jazz, Argentine Tango, Jazz Manouche, Rock, Rockabilly, Experimental. I have worked a lot playing Bossa Nova at some point. I don't like teaching something that I don't know. So for example, oriental music I couldn't teach. And if we come to a point where I am not helpful anymore, I will say so. What I do like is learning with students, it is often the case that your students teach you new ways of thinking about music and I find that super exciting! I was lucky to travel a bit of the world playing music with different projects and musicians that I admire, I always did this playing mainly Jazz music. I have played in bars and clubs and theaters in New York, Boston, Buenos Aires, and in different cities around Switzerland, Germany, France, Holland. I was also part of several orchestras (Jazz, Tango and Rock) in Argentina and in the US. I teach beginner - intermediate - advanced levels of different topics: - how to improve technique (right hand and left hand) - how to improvise (elements of improvisation, vocabulary, phrasing, etc.) - how to visualize the fretboard - how to learn songs by ear, and how to read music (or tab) - how harmony and music theory works - specific genres such as, Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, Bossa Nova, Tango, Rock, and Fingerstyle. The lessons can be also in German (basic, so you might need a bit of patience with me!) or Spanish (that's my mother tongue) or English. They can be at my place (Wedding), all corona safe, or online via Zoom/Skype. Shoot me a message if you are interested! All the best, Francisco

    Sarah
    Piano Lessons for all ages and in different languages
    Hello! my name is Sarah. I have a certificate in Classical Piano Performance. I have years of experience in teaching music in different languages (Arabic, English, German and French). In 2020 I finished my master's in Music Therapy in Germany. At the end of my studies, I did my research on online music playing and wrote my thesis on music interaction through online platforms which gave me a great deal of experience when it comes to online teaching. In my online lesson, I use several cameras from several angles to give the student the chance to see what I am doing. My lessons (Live and Online) are fun and very beneficial, and all my students showed fast progress

    Aisling
    Piano lessons through English from enthusiastic teacher
    I teach piano and keyboard skills with a friendly and encouraging approach. My students learn technical exercises and pieces/songs carefully chosen to suit each individual and I also incorporate relevant music theory. I teach on an upright acoustic piano at my place in Wedding and in some cases travel to the student for lessons.

    Shanice Ruby
    Professional bass lessons from a trained musician
    Hello, I'm Shanice, 23 years old and I studied jazz / pop at the HfMT. I offer bass lessons for beginners and advanced players of all ages. I am stylistically very flexible because of my work in various bands. I play for Kat Frankie, Sookee and Marla Glen and shared the stage with acts like Akua Naru, KLAN, Alli Neumann and Fil Bo Riva. I also made a studio recording for Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson's guitarist). My core competency is teaching groove and timing across genres of pop, rock, jazz, funk and especially hip hop (swagtime, in-between timing). We are also happy to talk about ear training and harmony, as well as synth bass and VST synth programming and music production. In addition, I also offer band coaching (as soon as it is possible again). If you are interested in a free trial lesson (30min), I would be very happy to hear from you. For those who do not have time for lessons every week, there is also the option of purchasing a single lesson or tickets for 5 or 10 courses. Best regards, Shanice

    Ann
    Traverse Flute, Piano or Pop music Singing lessons
    I'm a music teacher( flutist, pianist) that graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Classical Music). I teach flute or piano lessons to students of all age and level. Moreover, I have always loved different genres of music, so if you are interested in pop music, I am up for that too! To share my passion for music is the best feeling, I love to teach students how to play their instruments and express their emotions and musicality. I don't have the same program for all my students, as I think every student is different, learns differently, has different interests...etc. I learn to understand my students, get to know them, and work with them based off of those aspects.
