Piano Lessons for beginners and intermediate. All styles and genres

Piano lessons for beginners and for those who would like to play as a hobby.
I created a special program for students who want to play any kind of music (popular, jazz, classical), but can't spend a lot of time studying.
You will learn how to read and play sheet music and chords. We cover the basics very fast so you will start playing your favorite songs right away.

I also cover some theory that helps a better understanding of what you are playing. In this way the skills you get can then be used for playing other instruments, composing and songwriting.

Hi!

I studied Music Theory and Composition and I hold a Masters in Composition as well.
I also studied Music Pedagogy, where I developed the course I'm offering: Piano lessons for those who want to play for joy. That means a dynamic class in which you will learn the basics fast enough to be playing some songs in just a couple of classes. The final goal of this program is for you to be able to read and play chords and sheet music, such as jazz standards, songbooks, and musical theater scores.

I also teach music theory, from solfeggio and harmony to orchestration and composition.
This lessons are specially made for each student, so we can talk about your needs and I'll try my best to help you.
I can help you take the ABRSM theory examinations (grades 1-8), associate and licentiate diplomas.

Reviews (1)

Alan is a great teacher and super nice guy. He pay extra attention to your problems with piano and try to fix them using smart and innovative methods. I like the fact that he sometimes doesn't stick to the 60 mins and ask to extend it if he feels something is missing or incomplete. I already had 7 lessons with him and looking for more. Highly recommended.

With this class, you will learn everything you need to know to be able to write, copy, arrange, and compose music scores, from baroque to contemporary music writing.

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.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time.

Hakim
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.
