Piano and Music Theory lessons with Specialised and Experienced Teacher

I am a classical pianist and teacher with more than 13 years of experience in teaching and a specialized Master in Music Education.

I tailor my lessons to each individual student, according to their interests, levels, and learning goals. Teaching is something I love and that I have continuously done privately and in music schools, with students from beginner to advanced levels, from 4 to about 70 years old. With my help you can learn from a basic to an advanced level, develop musical and technically, to read and interpret any score.

I am currently doing my second Master of Music, this time in piano performance. I have also participated in several piano masterclasses with world-renowned pianists and performed as a soloist and as a chamber musician in venues in Portugal, The Netherlands, Sweden, and Belgium.

Learn Piano and Producing. Improvisation on the piano as a BEATMAKER.
You’re thought about producing your own music, but you have no idea where to begin. Beatmakers and piano players have different goals, so learn to improvise on the piano as a BEATMAKER So why do we have to learn the piano from a classical standpoint when we're wanting to create awesome beats - whether that be beautiful piano beats, or just have a better understanding of chords and improvisation? Cause here's the thing: As a beatmaker, we create repetition. We create loops which are on repeat over and over, and our goal is for these loops to be extremely catchy. (Also keeping in mind for our other instruments in terms of mixing for clarity.) So in this course I cover with you: - The basics of a piano to get everyone on the same page - How keys, scales, and chords work - Figuring out powerful chord progressions - Thinking in terms of melodies and improvisation - How to bounce around with your right hand - Left hand techniques to add fullness to your composition - Playing with both hands - Popular note placement, counting beats, and different rhythms in the industry. - How to stay motivated to practice piano as a beatmaker I have been working in different fields of music almost all my life, My backround started in classic music and today I produce and work with different labels. By the end of the course you will have an in-depth understanding of chords/scales, and be able to improvise on the piano. From here on out, it's up to you to practice with this knowledge to take your productions to the next level!

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.
