Music lessons for children! Learn while you are having fun.

Childhood is one of the most favorable stages to learn an instrument or start exploring music inside. Not only does it help the child to have discipline, it also helps them develop many areas of the brain. Learning and discipline while having fun is one of the best ways to introduce them to music.

My practical method is focusing on having fun while we learn. Children usually get tired so easily but if we play with them rhythm, notes, high and low pitches and the most important factor : play their favorites songs, they will love having lessons and the most important thing, they will learn without noticing.

Extra information

Having a piano or keyboard at home it's not a must but let me advice you if you want one.

Singing lessons for all ages taught by professional singer
I am a trained opera singer with 12 years of teaching experience as a choir conductor and vocal coach, and I continue to perform on the operatic and concert stage. The focus of this class is to learn healthy singing techniques which include breathing, support, posture, and vocalisation, I am happy to work with lyric, classical/pop and musical theatre repertoire - the fundamental techniques of singing are the same and we will be working towards establishing a good foundation so that you can understand your own instrument better. The language of instruction will be mainly in English, but I am experienced in singing in English, German, Italian and French, so don't feel restricted by way of language as well. No worries if you are an absolute beginner - there is no age/gender limit or pre-requisite. Everyone has a voice, and I would love to help you find yours! I am a first-language English speaker, with a bachelor degree in law from Singapore, a Masters Degree in Music (Distinction) and Advanced Postgraduate Diploma (Distinction) from Manchester, UK.

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. Having graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music and Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude), I am currently pursuing my postgraduate study in singing at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, under the tutelage of Valerie Guillorit. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have performed as soloist at a lot of occasions in Hong Kong and Europe, and the repertoire includes opera, Lied, oratorio and new music. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions in their ABRSM exams and some of them had won prizes in competitions. However, I do not teach them for distinctions and prizes. No matter what they get on their music journey, I love them with all my heart and I always believe that encouragement is the key. For beginners, I focus a lot on basic techniques. During the lessons, I also like to share my knowledge about history and theory, which are important building blocks to shaping a musician. For advanced learners, I would teach more about musicality and music presentation along with basic techniques. Of course, the actual teaching method depends on the personality and ability of student too. I grow up in a top English school in Hong Kong, so I can communicate in English fluently. I am confident that I will give my students the best learning experience. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a trial lesson:)

Maxime
Commercial singing lessons / acoustic guitar / composition
My name is Maxime I'm 25 years old and I'm a singer-songwriter. I offer accompanying acoustic guitar lessons, singing and composition lessons in Pully or Skype. The vocal technique (mixed voice) that I will teach you, will allow you to interpret your favorite songs that you can hear on the radio with ease and fluidity. Organic : A trumpet player with the Pully band for many years, I gained my musical experience at the Pully Music School. I was passionate about acoustic guitar at the age of 14 and I trained myself as an autodidact with my already acquired musical knowledge. I then wanted to improve my vocal technique and it was through the vocal programs of Brett Manning (Singing Success) and the advice of his associates that I could improve my voice considerably. I am currently a member of the IVTOM International voice teacher of mix to train me more precisely on the scientific aspect of the voice.
