Guitar workshops: personalized lessons / private training
Folk or classical acoustic guitar. The teaching philosophy is adapted to the level of each individual, according to the pace of work and motivation. For example, for beginners: Technique of the plectrum or fingers, coordination and correction of the right and left hand. Learning basic chords, simple themes, simple rhythms, reading tablatures (…). For intermediaries: development of rhythm, construction of chords, writing of tablatures, basic notions of harmony (…). Depending on your goals, you can learn, if you wish, to play 60 to 80% of current music from the first lessons, which often use the same chords and the same techniques. The objectives take into consideration the following points: -Study of various playing techniques, chords, harmony, music of your choice, rhythm, with reading of tablature, teaching structured around the repertoire you like, technique of developing the musical ear - Discovery of the neck, notes and basic positions of open chords - Left / right hand coordination and rhythm exercises for the right hand - Learning of different pieces of your choice - Left hand control exercises, speed and precision - Learning arpeggios - Work around muscle memory - Learning improvisation, musical play with others - Ear training: use your ears to find chords, melodies, sounds and techniques used -Spend a pleasant moment of exchange, without unnecessary institutional pressure, while obtaining concrete results -Understand and discover the many facets of an exciting and user-friendly instrument - Benefit from personalized advice on your posture and certain pitfalls to avoid when starting alone -Adjust and clarify your self-taught knowledge - Learn tablatures / tabs & in English. Note : - Possibility to use the guitar available on site, during the test phase. - As our teacher is also a singing teacher, it is possible to combine the two disciplines: guitar + vocal instrument, and to work on synchronization, style and accuracy. - Possibility of offering this course (birthday, party, Christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. THE TEACHER : Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field, in renowned international public and private establishments, with careful pedagogy and methodology as the watchwords. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Célia
Violin lessons for all Fr / Ang (solfeggio included).
As a violinist: I am currently a student at the Geneva University of Music, after having followed the pre-professional course at the Conservatoire de Musique de Genève. During my career, I won several prizes such as the Vatelot Rampal competition in Paris and the Jeunesses Musicales of Switzerland soloist, and string quartet (alongside Julie Berthollet in particular). I also attended the Indianapolis University Academy summer internship. As a Pedagogue: in addition to sporadically giving individual lessons for 4 years, I was part of the "Jeunesses Musicales of Switzerland" youth and youth internship team for three consecutive years. Overall, my goal is to allow my students to have fun making music, to express themselves as they wish and hear, with their instrument! I adapt the rhythm of my teaching, my teaching materials, the choice of songs to each, according to the requests that are made to me. My classes can also take the status of personal work support; in this case, students can obviously bring me their scores worked with their main teacher, or those they play in chamber music / orchestra. In short: The violin is an art, it learns yes, but we play! :)

Mein Name ist Margarita. Ich bin Absolventin des Moskauer Konservatoriums und HEMU du Lausanne. Ich unterrichte jetzt seit 8 Jahren Geige. Ich unterrichte sowohl Anfänger als auch Fortgeschrittene. Das Alter meiner Schüler muss 3 Jahre betragen. Meine Schüler sind Gewinner von internationalen Wettbewerben. Ich gebe sowohl Einzelunterricht und auch mit kleinen Schülern (3-6 Jahre) Gruppenunterricht (wenn sich die Schüler in einer Stadt befinden). Mit den Schülern spielen wir gemeinsam eine Vielzahl von Stücken und lernen, im Ensemble zu spielen. Ich unterrichte nach meiner Methode und verwende auch die Suzuki-Methode und andere. Beim Musikunterricht mit Kindern unterrichte ich auch Theorie und Fähigkeiten im Notenlesen, und meine Schüler komponieren seit der ersten Unterrichtsstunde. Mein Unterricht fördert das musikalische Gehör, das Rhythmusgefühl, die Intonation der Stimme und die Koordination der Bewegungen. Außerdem fördere ich die Aufmerksamkeit, das Gedächtnis und das Denken der Schüler. Ich unterstütze alle kreativen Initiativen meiner Schüler. Glückliche Gefühle, Interesse und Produktivität sind meine Unterrichtsziele.

Judith
- Particular course of violin and musical theory -
Pedagogy: Through the teaching of the violin, I wish above all to transmit a passion for music and a pleasure to play that have been alive for a long time. For this, the learning of a technique promoting physical relaxation seems to me essential. I also have the skills to teach the basics (and more if affinity) of a musical training allowing the student to decipher and understand a score, to improvise and if he wants to learn the basics of composition. Finally I want to adapt to all profiles. Young and old, beginner, amateur adult or music school student looking for support, all are welcome. Background: Student violin at the University of Music of Geneva, I obtained in 2016 my diploma of music studies at the Conservatory of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés. My curiosity and my interest for music in general also pushed me to follow trainings in musical writing, analysis and conducting in several conservatories in the Paris region. In 2018 I had the chance to make a replacement at the Regional Conservatory of Creteil which allowed me to complete (with private lessons for adults) my experience teaching violin.
