Private violin lessons, Music Theory, Technical and Musical Skills

My goal is to make people of all ages and levels learn not only playing an instrument but how can music help them in their everyday life.
I am an Albanian violinist, with a Bachelor degree in Classical Music (Violin) and Musicologie in Sorbonne University.
Over the years, my experiences with different youth and professional orchestras all around Europe have made me understand that music is important not only for professional musicians but also for everyone.
I can teach in English or French and of course in my mother tongue Albanian.

Extra information

You will need to attend the lesson with your own instrument. Besides, we can choose the learning method together depending on your level so we decide on the sheet music that fits the best to you.

Esther is an excellent teacher. Everything is there, the pedagogy, the intelligence of the advice, and the adaptation to the student. Everything is designed to help you progress as quickly as possible, and so the violin seems simple.

Brice
Gives drum lessons (electronic and acoustic)
Hello, I like to transmit and exchange with my students. Seeing them understand and progressing is essential and very rewarding for me. My lessons are based on an academic method focused on learning music theory and instrumental practice. I bring a specific method adapted to the profiles of my students (age, availability, tastes, motivation, "anti-music theory"). I try to make my students independent, help them develop their listening skills, their sense of rhythm and transmit to them an efficient working method. All styles, all levels: pop, rock, funk, jazz, blues, soul, reggae, latin

Fernando
Violin and viola teacher (French - Español - English)
Passionate about teaching, I have devoted a large part of my time to it for 10 years with varied experiences in France and Argentina, both in an associative context and at the conservatory, including the network of conservatories of the urban community Paris Vallée de la Marne, where I teach viola and chamber music. I was a viola teacher at the Municipal Music School of Beauchamp and at the Municipal Conservatory of the town of Chevilly-Larue. Whatever the age of the student, beginner level or confirmed, I offer private lessons of violin and viola. No knowledge or musical notion is necessary beforehand, the theoretical achievements are made as and when the discovery of the instrument.

Luis
Composition courses: composer and teacher with international experience (graduate of CNSMDP and IRCAM).
Hello! I offer courses in composition, Mao and other disciplines (harmony, orchestration, musical theory, etc.) for all levels, and using a method similar to that of the conservatory. Always oriented towards musical practice, together we will refine the strategy that suits you best. What I like most about individual lessons is adapting the lesson to the needs of the student, like the teachers who left their mark on my training.

Jules
Solfège and musical culture (History, analysis ...).
Former student of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, editor-in-chief of the magazine Avant-Scène Opéra, editor for the Philharmonie du Luxembourg, I offer you the following lessons. Music theory and musical culture are essential tools for understanding and making music. Music theory, because it allows you to master the technical tools that allow you to make music, is fundamental for anyone who wants to progress in their instrument. Musical culture makes it possible to understand what goes on in music beyond the technique. From this knowledge (established over a lot of listening) we can develop an interpretation and go beyond technical issues. For music theory lessons only, I constantly articulate the different musical parameters (rhythm, intonation, ear, etc.) and draw my training from the repertoire, which has the advantage of making music from the start. Small technical exercises also allow you to focus on one or the other parameter, but the perspective remains mainly that of a global approach placing the music at the center. As far as musical culture is concerned, I use each of my professional experiences (Musicologist, playwright and music critic) to transmit my knowledge to you. Thus we will approach the history of music through works (history of forms and languages), interpretation and places of music. It is mainly through the study of documents (texts of musical criticism, iconography, scores, musical instruments...) that transmission takes place. Knowledge completes and informs this documentary study. Finally the study of document and the erudition have only one goal: to enlighten the listening of the works which I place at the heart of my teaching.

Louise
Music theory workshops and lessons for beginners average and advanced.
Currently studying music theory at an advanced level in the conservatory of Paris, I give lessons for everyone. I started my musical studies at seven years old in Lorraine where I got my music theory certificate in 2020. In 2021 I entered Paris' conservatory and progressed to where I am today. I has been more than ten years that I study musical theory and I am aware of the difficulties people can face learning it, especially children that tend to see it as boring. I discovered many different aspects of this subject and I would like to teach them to others while adapting to their needs and wishes. I can use the voice, the body, an instrument, some reading and lots of listening to develop the musical personality of students. Don't hesitate to ask me for any other informations!

Pietro
Trumpet lessons for 1,2 and 3 cycle 🎺 🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺
Playing the trumpet shouldn't be complicated! with a good technique routine and the right way it's not complicated enough either! I like to work a lot on breathing which I consider to be a main element and on technical ease. Works on flexibility, dexterity, and expansion of the range.

Jemma
Piano, Music Theory and Aural Lessons - all grades
I have over 10 years of teaching experience, both privately and in schools, catering to students of all ages, from children to adults. As a friendly and enthusiastic instructor, my goal is to ensure that every student finds joy in creating music and can work towards their personal goals—whether it's for the sheer enjoyment of music-making or to prepare for music exams. I'm also proficient in teaching music theory, which not only enhances musicianship but is also essential for students aspiring to reach higher levels in their musical journey. I hold a Bachelor of Music and a Master's degree from two prestigious London music institutions: the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music. Since then, I've been actively performing as a soloist and collaborating with various orchestras and ensembles worldwide.

I offer both online and in-person lessons tailored to individual needs. My lessons are designed for teenagers and adults. While I'm more comfortable speaking French, I also have a basic command of English.
