About Me

Hello,

I'm a Canadian pianist, currently a doctoral candidate at l'Université de Montréal and simultaneously pursuing a second Masters degree at La Haute École de Musique de Genève.

I really enjoy sharing what I do with others – helping them overcoming obstacles in playing the piano and improving their pianistic skills is always a pleasure for me. I'm very patient and enthusiastic in my teaching; having been a student my whole life (and I hope to continue learning in this way!), I know how wonderful it can be when you meet someone who is open to helping you through your personal challenges based on your individual background so I really aim for that type of teaching. I'm there to help in any way I can.

As a bonus, my doctoral research pertains to the neuropsychology of learning and the most efficient way to develop a skill – my goal is to help you develop the skills necessary to become an independent learner. I have a lot of tricks from my research and own experiences which I'd be more than glad to share!

Very happy to help you work towards whatever goals you may have, whether it be starting to play the piano or preparing for competitions or exams.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Looking forward to hearing from you! :)

PS: I'm also available as an accompanist.

Had my first piano lesson with Cindy and it was great! Easy to understand and very clear explanations! She prepared great material for the class! :)
Excellent first lesson. Our girls really liked Cindy and enjoyed their lessons. Well done!
Cindy is an excellent piano teacher. The fact that my son (11) is fully engaged and practices without any prompting is a testament to Cindy's professional but relaxed and fun approach to teaching. I would recommend Cindy without reservation!
Cindy is a professional and nice teacher and my daughter liked her a lot.

Gabriel
BATTERY LESSONS at home for all levels and all ages
Student at the HEMU of Lausanne in Jazz and holder of a Diploma of Musical Studies from the City of Paris in Jazz Drums, I give home drums lessons for all levels. The lessons are above all based on the requests and expectations of the student, according to his level and age. They generally include: - Position, gestures and breathing - Basic work - Rhythmic and / or melodic and harmonic music theory - Lots of music listening including Rock, Funk, Soul and Jazz - Work on the metronome I can work on a method or with my own lesson sheets. Having taught music theory to children's classes in a conservatory, I have a lot of experience in teaching for beginners or adolescents. The goal of my lessons is above all to discover, learn or advance, without stress or fuss!

I was trained to meet the desires and expectations of my students, which is why I am open to working with all musical styles and at all levels.

Do not hesitate to contact me for further information. I would love to share my passion with you. - Lessons and methods suitable for all ages and levels - Teaching for over ten years - Motivated, caring, methodical and passionate - Courses in French, German, Spanish or English - Possibility of travel and online courses (webcam)

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! :)

Zaiga

I offer home music lessons for all ages and for all levels. From teaching music theory to learning the piano. METHODOLOGY - Teacher at the “Neo Académie” music school - 4 years of experience in music teaching - Music class teacher for young children at the “yamaha” school in Latvia for 2 years - Graduated with a “play relaxed” certificate in 2017 - I improved my knowledge during several Masterclasses around Europe (France, Germany, Austria, Baltic States).

Piano lessons for beginners (possibility of combining with music theory)
I offer a course for anyone who wants to learn to play the piano. Classes are composed of practice and theory of music (solfeggio). I make my piano available if you don't have one or I will come to your place.

Carlos
Singing Lessons, classical and modern vocal tecnique
I specialize in teaching vocal technique (classical and modern) in order make the student aware of how he uses his or her whole body in order to produce and maintain a nice sound. I always try to tailor my lessons according to the student needs and find out the best way to engage in performance. Lessons usually begin with a small talk in order to find out about the students hobbies and interests. It is surprising how useful this is as it gives me more ideas on how to focus my teaching. Furthermore, I give a small theory talk that describes anatomically what organs are involved in producing sound so the student can have a practical understanding on how singing works. To sum up, my intention is to provide the student with tools that he can use on his or her own when practicing and singing.

Clément
Private lessons of trumpet and / or music theory
Hello, my name is Clément. I am currently a student at EPFL. I have been practicing music since my youngest age (3 years old) and I would like to continue to share this passion. I studied for almost 15 years at the Avignon Conservatory. I have worked with several orchestras and performed numerous solo performances in the Provençal and Parisian regions. I have a diploma in music studies. Through this course, I would like you to discover the practice of the trumpet and the learning of music theory in the most fun way possible. It is a demanding instrument (I have often seen it in recent years) but that does not prevent being able to escape and have fun while learning. According to your requests, the course should be organized in two stages: -45min-1h of trumpet practice -30-45min of discovery of music theory These two parts are complementary: the theoretical part is highly recommended if you are a beginner in order to be able to read notes, rhythms and other musical symbols. This course is open to beginners as well as intermediates.

Ariane
Piano lessons, music theory and also harpsichord: introduction to music
You will learn how to discover the piano keyboard, the sound, how to produce it, how to improve it and look for a beautiful timbre. You will discover a whole series of practical and simple exercises which will allow you to familiarize yourself with this new instrument. Then come a large number of composers. They are very old, modern, happy, nostalgic: here it is their music which will speak to you directly and thanks to it, a world will open up to you, speak to you but also allow you to express yourself in this new language that is: MUSIC!

Natalie
Piano lessons for all and Piano Therapy for students with special needs
Piano lessons are a powerful tool to improve concentration and give students a sense of satisfaction. Learning the piano could have a very beneficial effect on anyone with dyslexia or any other learning difficulties if the teacher employs slightly different methods, so the process of learning remains enjoyable but not frustrating. With my experience and qualification in teaching the piano and working for many years as a special needs teacher and assessor, I am ideally placed to create a specific approach for your or your child's needs. At the same time as teaching piano up to Trinity College Certificate Level (and up to ABRSM Grade 8), I am also giving piano lessons specifically designed for students who did not progress as expected and failed to reach customary milestones in compulsory education in order to overcome the challenges and help them succeed in learning to play the piano. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any questions or wish to discuss your individual situation.
