Piano Lessons/Klavierunterricht. All ages and levels.

Hallo,

I am a Chinese American concert pianist and I have been residing in Europe (Paris, Berlin, etc) for decades.
I have over 30 years of teaching experiences dating all the way back to my student times at the Juilliard School, New York.

My teaching philosophy is to help my students to express their individualism through music. In order to achieve this goal the students are encouraged to master the basics of the art of piano playing, such as adequate technique, memory, understanding of basic music theory and historic backgrounds of the compositions, and last but not least, the ability to sightread music scores efficiently, which, unfortunately, has been ignored by numerously teachers to my knowledge.

As a person I am friendly, punctual, open-minded and patient. I always see my students as friends and like to discuss with them about music and beyond, and through this way I can understand my students better personally so as to help them more efficiently in their musical ambitions.

My multicultural background and teaching experiences in different continents/countries gave me unique insight to understand students from different parts of the world. I teach piano in English, German, and Chinese languages.

Extra information

One can start music at any age. My students range from 4 to 86. Some started piano after their retirement!. So please feel free to contact me to discuss your individuals goals in learning piano.

About Me

As I already mentioned above, as person I am open-minded, reliable, patient and friendly. I see my relationship with my student as one of friendship. With my students I can discuss various topics, music and beyond. This way I can understand my students better personally which would enable me to design a method tailored specifically to their individual goals in music learning.
I am a person easy to be around with. Our lessons are conducted in a relaxed atmosphere. But I am also a goal-oriented person, and my top priority in teaching is to help my students to achieve their objectives.
I enjoy working with students of different personalities and different cultural background. Ultimately, music is the universal language that unites us all, which we can all share regardless where we come from.

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.

Learn piano easily with 1 on 1 private lessons perfect for beginner and intermediate students.
This Piano Instruction offers a program for beginners and intermediates as a package deal for students who are more serious and want to dedicate more time to learning piano. As a beginner, you will learn basic piano techniques and practices, and immediately start learning songs that will enforce and progress those techniques. By the end of the program, you will be able to read and play sheet music and have a much greater understanding of music in general. Those who are past the beginner level will start lessons that focus on learning more advanced pieces to further strengthen their skills. You may also choose to learn your favorite songs in this program. The goal here is to give you the practice techniques and confidence to be able to perform solo piano pieces. **YOUR LESSONS** You may choose to follow my piano/music theory program, learn to play your favorite songs, or even take lessons just to learn chords. I’m happy to work with my students to give them the lessons they want and the skills they will cherish.

Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Zara
Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a resident artist at an opera company in the United States, and I have worked mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions (97/100 for voice and 90/100 for piano). Besides, I am a holder of DipABRSM piano performance certificate and ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have been giving private singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 10 to 50 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. As an instructor of vocal masterclasses in Hong Kong, I see myself as the person who: -- opens the door of fundamental vocal techniques for the students; -- influences them to be confident; -- shows them the beauty of human voice and vocal music; -- teaches them to embrace the others without judgement. My way and attitude of teaching was proved to be successful with a lot of positive feedback. I always plan my classes in advance, and give notes to students every lesson. In this case, the students can follow the lessons easily and make the best out of their time. I do not make my students always say "yes" and "okay", I like to work with them and they are always welcome to tell me their needs. Since I grew up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong and I have a lot of English-speaking students, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

Ioanna
Klavierunterricht / Piano lessons. All levels are welcome to join.
In my style of teaching, I approach the challenges together with my students, working as a team. This way, the study progress allows for an individual pace while ensuring understanding due to frequent and implicit feedback. Having fun and learning exemplary pieces are considered as necessary as training technical fundamentals and musical understanding. The entire program is individually composed to meet each student’s interests and needs, so that any level and kind of student is ensured to find a fit. `` Learning the piano is a fascinating lifelong process. It can be compared to learning a new language from the very beginning, step by step. I love guiding students, who share the same passion with me through this wonderful experience of self-discovery. All levels and ages (6 -100 years old) are welcome to my class`

Lise
Piano lessons for children/adults, beginner/intermediate
Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.
