Piano lessons and music theory for beginners and intermediates.

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hello!

If you want to learn how to play the piano, you are in the right place!

I offer piano lessons for beginners and intermediates. As much for those who have never touched a piano in their lives as those who want to polish their technique or learn more about music theory.

I have been playing the piano for 15 years, have been a student in several conservatories in Switzerland as well as in Paris and I am now completing a Bachelor in piano at the HEMU in Friborg.

I now wish to share my knowledge and my passion!

Musically,

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hi!

To describe myself: I have passion (patience), discipline, the desire to share and fishing!
I have been giving private lessons for several years and each new student has asked for an adapted program and a different method. You must first know where the future student is, and what he wants, how he approaches the piano, to know how I will establish the study plan.

For beginners, I try to give the love of music, through play, singing and listening. This will become implied with the more advanced but we will focus on musicality, technique and music theory, depending on the desire and ability.

Always listening to the student, the course will develop in parallel with its musical development.

My pedagogy is based on the desires and objectives of each, there are as many lesson formats as there are students. I promote the discovery of a repertoire adapted to the tastes of the students, while allowing them to progress. We can approach different styles: classical piano, film music, written jazz ... I obtained my state diploma as a piano teacher in France, and am studying for a master's degree in pedagogy at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Friborg.

PLACES, FEES - 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.

Violin Lessons, Theory of music, Music, children’s lesson
I am 26 years old. I am Alumna of Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory (Russia) I am currently studying at HeMu du Lausanne. I teach playing the violin to children from 3 years and adults for 18 years. I have an 8 year- experience in teaching. Over this time my students have become laureates in local and international competitions, and have played with various orchestras. I have my own teaching method. Music is my passion, and I really love my instrument. I believe that from the very beginning it is very important to teach children the right skills and to instill in them love of music and beauty.

Piano, guitar and theory of music lessons for beginners and intermediate players
As a Master’s student in medical biology, I have been playing piano and guitar for 18 years. I can explain to you the musical theory that allows you to understand a piece on which you want to improvise or to understand the idea behind the composition of a piece. I can find you the chords of any song or piece and I have examples of songs whose chords search is particularly interesting. I can teach you classical music and jazz. I use a piano that provides an automated and complete accompaniment, that is to say that we can play as with a band with a drummer and musicians of any style. This is very convenient. I also have recordings of impro funk or hip-hop patterns that are what you might call "fire" to learn to improvise with pleasure. I took classes at the school of jazz and current music for about ten years and had some bands, concerts and jams at the university. I was also a member of the Lausanne University Choir. For many years, I made self-taught classical music in parallel with jazz lessons.

Victor
Trombone and / or Improvisation Jazz and current music.

This course is open to all instruments and levels. Do not hesitate to contact me on Apprentices, I will answer you with pleasure.

Violin4all: violin lessons (and / or solfège) for all!
I offer violin lessons in a warm setting in the center of the city of Freiburg. I want to bring the student to discover his instrument through play and developing his creativity through improvisation. The technique is developed in parallel with the learning of classical and popular repertoire. I am also open to other styles of music if the student wishes. I use modern teaching methods by adapting them to the needs of students.

Piano Lessons for Beginners and Amateurs. Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Own Compositions.
I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master's Degree at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 6 years now, I have been teaching students of all levels between 5 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!

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. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions (97/100 for voice and 90/100 for piano). Besides, I am a holder of DipABRSM piano performance certificate and ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have been giving private singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 3 to 50 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques. Alongside with that, I spend a little time on every lesson for ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest of the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. For piano students who are at the beginning of their music journey, I use a lot of creative ways to teach basic knowledge such as rhythm and fingering. These creative ways include colorful presentation slides, arranging a tailor-made version of the songs they like and introducing fun games to keep them motivated. Each student will get something different because everyone is different. As an instructor of vocal masterclasses for choir students in Hong Kong, I see myself as the person who: -- opens the door of fundamental vocal techniques for the students; -- influences them to be confident; -- shows them the beauty of human voice and vocal music; -- teaches them to embrace the others without judgement. My way and attitude of teaching was proved to be successful with a lot of positive feedback. I tend to plan my classes in detail, and give notes to students every lesson. In this case, the students can follow the lessons easily and make the best out of their time. I do not make my students always say "yes" and "okay", I like to work with them and they are always welcome to tell me their needs. Since I grew up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong (Belilios Public School) and I have a lot of English-speaking students, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

Classical and pop piano lessons, music theory and solfège (Russian method of training perfect pitch)
I have been playing the piano since I was five. I graduated from a specialized music school in Kiev and now I am a student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I teach both, classical and pop music. I have a very positive approach in teaching and will try to generate a motivating environment, as I understand that learning piano can be frustrating for some! My goal is to help you enjoy piano as well as seeing steady progress.
