About Me

I am a very relaxed person and can make you feel very comfortable learning and playing. I put things into simple terms so that the method of playing gives you confidence and therefore you learn and create more easily. I teach the basics of routes, chords, harmony. I teach you tricks of the trade on how to create film score music and also how to play by feeling the music so that you get out of the habit of stop-start traditional learning. Today I have over 25 keyboards together with other equipment and I also have my own custom-built set up that I constructed myself again because people told me it can't be done made me build this set up even more. How my set up is constructed allows you to play a full orchestra on one 88 key workstation namely a Korg T1 which is the exact same keyboard used by Vangelis (Chariots of fire). This allows me to play 14 different sounds from other instruments at the same time if required. This is the system that reduces the recording track after track after track. This is the system that in my opinion is a one-off and I invite you to learn and play.

Education

I started playing the piano when I was 11 went to piano lessons and absolutely hated it. I hated the traditional you must sit like this, your hands must be like this, you must read of the sheet. I wanted a more relaxed let me do what I want the attitude of playing and today I do not play from sheet music simply because I can't read sheet music. Don't forget a tremendous amount of top artists cannot read sheet music. My education was constantly playing learning from other artists and getting things like the timing correct, the harmony correct. If you love doing something you will get it right but you must find your own method, not somebody else’s.

Do not copy anyone. Learn from people yes but don't copy.

Experience / Qualifications

My experience came from playing anything and everywhere and eventually owning my own keyboard which was a JEN 1000. My dream synthesizer was a Yamaha DX7 made famous by many a band however the price ticket was totally out of my league. Today I have over 25 keyboards together with other equipment and I also have my own custom built set up that I constructed myself again because people told me it can't be done made me build this set up even more. How my set up is constructed allows you to play a full orchestra on one 88 key workstation namely a Korg T1 which is the exact same keyboard used by Vangelis (chariots of fire). This allows me to play 14 different sounds from other instruments at the same time if required. This is the system that reduces recording track after track after track.

Sara
A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons
Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

PIANO AND SOLFEGE COURSES BY SKYPE CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Hello, I am a professor of piano (Studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Jaella Institute in Paris). For beginners: The course I give is global (learning to read, solfeggio etc.) so that I can give you lessons even if you have no training. We can start from scratch. For advanced students or those who have taken a break (sometimes longer) in their piano education, I often proceed to a repositioning of the technique or work directly on a directory of choice. I use an effective and dynamic method and I have experience with both adults and children. I chose to give my classes by videoconference to avoid wasting time and to minimize additional costs. Feel free to contact me for more information.
