Harp, Piano and Music lessons/workshops for students of any age

By mixing this learning together with my harp (and basic piano) skills, my goal as a Music teacher now is not only to teach you “the right notes”: I will do my best for you to enjoy Music, to discover the instruments, to be creative and curious, to give space to your ideas and to express yourself through playing, using few words but a lot of practice. Every lesson will be a moment of reciprocal exchange of knowledge and ambitions, a new adventure for everyone to learn from each other.

Extra information

I can teach harp at any level, and piano to very beginners; both individual and group lessons are possible.
I organise Music workshops for groups of children, with or without instruments (using body languages and voice).

I can teach both on my big concert harp (classical harp, 47 strings) and on my small one, perfect for little pupils (27 strings).

About Me

Why do I teach? Music is the most essential and natural form of Art, one of the anciest and most fundamental elements of all time, for all cultures. That's why it is known as the Universal language, the one to communicate, to share, to help, to express feelings and thoughts even when they cannot be expressed with or by words. I could see this even more during the past 4 years while teaching and leading classes for kids and adults, refugee and homeless people, often facing big issues like the impossibility of verbal communication (for cultural or physical reasons) or critical behaviour situations.
In these cases, as for daily life situations, flexibility, a very open mind, enthusiasm and empathy can make a big difference. Doens't metter which instrument or kind of Music you play: you can express something special with it, and I would love to help you to!

Education

After my Bachelor Diploma in Genova (Italy), in 2014 I won a Scholarship and I moved to Den Haag for a six-months Internship at the Royal Conservatory. There, from 2015, I have attended finished in 2017 the “NAIP-New Audiences and Innovative Practice” European Master, which enriched me with many new skills and a greater awarness about Music and its role in our own lives and our Society.

Experience / Qualifications

As harp performer, I am an open-minded and curious player: beside many years of pure Classical repertoire, all through the years I collected many different experiences also in Contemporary Music repertoire, focusing on free improvisation, live-electronics performances, collaboration with composers and experimentation of all possibilities on my instrument. I was part of NOOS Ensemble (Italy), PYO-Palestine Youth Orchestra (Italy, Palestine, Jordan), GEO-Galata Electroacustic Orchestra (Italy), Jeune Orchestre International de Montecarlo and DUO Flauto&Arpa (Italy).

As teacher, thanks to my Master carreer I am trained to lead and teach different kinds of groups, from children to teenagers, from people with dementia to vulnerable groups. In 2017, I was involved as Artistic Producer in an intensive training-programm for teachers of El Sistema Greece in Athens (supported by Impact Hub Athens) analysing and developing the organization of music lessons for children in refugee camps nearby Athens.
I am now collaborating with the vibraphone player Fernan Mejuto Vazquez for the
realisation of our original music workshop format “Around the World”, addressed to children and kids from different parts of the world living in NL, and based on our favourite method and philosophy of working through Creative Music Making and Collaborative Composition Processes, applicable to any kind of group and community.

Beside my teaching activity, I work as Production Leader both for Stichting Ciconia Consort (classical string orchestra based in Den Haag) and for the Classical Department at the Royal Conservatory (Den Haag). This job has certainly taught me a lot about reliability, responsibility, flexibility and punctuality: all these skills undoubtedly characterize every aspect of my working life, without a doubt also that of teacher.

Gina
Piano lessons and music theory for every age and every level!
My name is Gina and I teach piano and music theory for more than 5 years to children, teenagers and adults of every age. I consider myself a musician in a more holistic way than just a pianist, having experienced also multiple other instruments such as the viola, the tampouras (traditional byzantine instrument), guitar and voice, as well as different choirs and orchestras. At the age of 21 I gained my first professional degree in music harmony from the Conservatory "EHOGENESIS" and one year after in the classical piano from the Conservatory of Saint-Dimitris. Meanwhile, I was accepted in "The Royal Conservatory" of The Hague, to continue more advanced piano studies. Now I live, study and teach piano in The Hague and surrounding areas! The construction of the lessons is tailored on each student's needs and wishes. I choose pieces and exercises from different books, while guiding the students on practising songs that they personally like. I also provide basic music theory notes and knowledge, to help with the understanding of the piano and music in general. Every lesson is an opportunity to learn something new with main purpose the musicality, expression and enjoyment! The piano lessons are fun and productive at the same time! For the students who want to understand deeper the music, I am also teaching music theory as a separate class. *Lessons take part online (espesially in these Corona times), and also in person. Hope to see you soon!
