Piano, Composition and Music Theory lessons – Create Your Own Music Worlds

I am an active composer, performer and audiovisual artist who believes that the sharing of knowledge and experience is one of the most important and also influential parts of the creative process. We are creative human beings by nature. Are you passionate about sound and would you like to expand your knowledge and perception of music? Would you like to learn how to compose your own music or play the piano? There is never too late to start or to continue with your passion!

I believe that education is a dialogue and I adapt the course plan according to the level and the age of students in order to develop their potential. I am always trying to bring the positivity and the zeal for curiosity during the lessons.

Depending on your interest I can help you with:

Piano:
I teach using different methods, according to your needs and goals. I always care about setting up and cultivating a healthy technique of playing, trying to bring a complex approach to interpretation or improvisation.

Composition:
Basic principles of creating a musical piece, theory of composition, notation (ranging from classical to graphic and open scores), instrumentation, orchestration, arranging, creating electroacoustic music, computer aided composition, recording.

Music Theory:
Harmony, rhythm, aural skills, music analysis and history of music – those are some of the topics inseparably belonging to music education. Since I have many years of experience of teaching music theory within all levels of education – from basics to advanced – we can find a way how to approach those topics with enthusiasm and creativity and learn as much as possible :)
