Cello and music theory - instructions for beginners and intermediate students.

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
Music is very interesting both as a profession and as a hobby, but in the beginning we all face difficulties when it comes to playing an instrument. But with a little guidance, hard work and patience you can get the results you want... it's proven :)
My name is Paula, I'm 25 years old and I enjoy teaching and working with enthusiastic people, because as I said, teaching others is actually teaching yourself ;). My field of study is music interpretation (cello), at the Ghent Conservatory.
The way of teaching will suit the level of the student (for beginners I divide the lessons into two parts: half basic music theory and the other half cello), and I will always have my cello with me to illustrate.
If you are interested in playing this beautiful instrument, do not hesitate to write to me. And never forget: music is beautiful, not difficult.

About Me

Ich habe im Alter von 10 Jahren in der Musikschule meiner Heimatstadt angefangen, Cello zu spielen.
Mein Traum ist es, in einem europäischen Orchester zu spielen. Nach der Highschool bekam ich die Möglichkeit, meinen Bachelor in Belgien zu machen.
Während meiner Studienzeit interessierte ich mich sehr für Möglichkeiten, effizient zu üben und das Üben angenehm zu gestalten.
Seitdem ich über diese Methoden nachgedacht habe, wurde ich neugierig, wie sie sich auf andere Menschen anwenden lassen.
Was ich beim Unterrichten anstrebe, ist herauszufinden, was für jeden Schüler funktioniert. Mit anderen Worten, ich versuche, die Art und Weise des Unterrichtens so zu gestalten, dass sie zu jedem Schüler passt.
Das Unterrichten gibt mir auch die Befriedigung, mich selbst zu entdecken und natürlich Neues zu lernen.

Education

Bachelor in Music Performance @ Gent Conservatorium
Während der Jahre meines Studiums hatte ich insgesamt 3 Hauptlehrer, jeder mit unterschiedlichen Ansätzen des Unterrichts.
In der gleichen Zeit habe ich an vielen Meisterkursen mit großartigen Lehrern teilgenommen, von denen ich enorm viel gelernt habe.
Während dieser Zeit habe ich in vielen Projekten von klassischen Orchestern, Musiktheater, Kammermusik und sogar Pop-Bands gespielt :)

Experience / Qualifications

Instrumantalpädagogik-Hauptfach Cello@Peter Cornelius Konservatorium
Im PCK kann ich mich nur auf die Pädagogik spezialisieren. Es ist sehr interessant, sich den Lehrmethoden zu nähern, zu lernen, was Pädagogik eigentlich ist, Psychologie und viele andere.
Während der 2 Jahre bekommen wir die Möglichkeit, ein Praktikum mit jungen Studenten zu absolvieren.

Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

GUITAR LESSON for ALL LEVELS ✨ taught by a seasoned CONSERVATOIRE PROFESSOR! 🎶
The lessons can be conducted in English 🇬🇧, Spanish 🇪🇸 , or Italian 🇮🇹 , ensuring accessibility for all students. Age and musical preferences are not limitations; with qualitative daily practice, rather than sheer quantity, progress can be swiftly observed. 💪🏼 🎶 My approach to classical guitar lessons is centered on tailoring them to each student's individual needs and potential. I prioritize fostering enthusiasm and motivation as primary tools for conveying technical and theoretical concepts, alongside a deep love for music. Lessons are open to students of all ages and skill levels. 🚀 The focus of the course revolves around the joy of playing music. Your favorite genres and pieces will take center stage, with a thorough exploration of their codes and secrets. Together, we'll delve into technical exercises and learn to play pièces of your choice or mine, enriching your repertoire and enhancing your playing style. 🤩 For example, we can reimagine pieces by applying advanced techniques such as the CAGED system, incorporating new chords, positions, and techniques like arpeggios and fingerstyle playing. This expands the instrument's capabilities and your playing skills, ensuring continuous progress and improvement. 👨🏻‍🏫 Upon request, the program also includes theoretical studies, which are presented in an accessible manner suitable for both beginners and experienced musicians. Exercises, pieces, and theoretical explanations are structured in a progressive order of difficulty.🔥 The theoretical program covers a range of topics, including guitar tuning, chord theory, scales and modes, finger picking techniques, strumming patterns, metronome practice, learning favorite songs, improvisation, harmony, melody, and rhythm theory.⚡️ Together, we'll embark on a musical journey tailored to your goals and aspirations, ensuring a fulfilling and enriching experience with the classical guitar.🔝☄️

Private guitar lessons for every level: from basic chords to out of the box improvisation
Hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, and pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. See you soon! Richard PS: my specified hours are a guideline, if this does not suit you, you can certainly send us a message and we will try to arrange something :)

Online piano lessons for everybody: from any starting level with any set goal!
Learning to play the piano is a wonderful and very diverse experience! Every beginner has to go through it in their own special way in order to realize one's personal aspirations. But sometimes, unfortunately, due to a lack of guidance and direction, the learning process may cause some difficulties followed by unexpected disappointment. If you are in need of said guidance, if your learning experience is not that captivating or satisfying anymore, you don't have to turn away from your dreams of playing the piano - I will gladly help you to get closer to them in a fun and enjoyable way in our lessons! After finishing music school with the highest grades twice as well as a number of additional courses (improvisation, composition, orchestras, etc.) and after honing my teaching skills for more than 4 years, I can safely say that my lessons may prove useful to any type of student with any kind of given objective at hand. No matter your age, your previous experience, or background, you just need to name me your personal goal, task, or even a dream - be ready to dedicate a little time and effort, and I will take care of all the rest. Learning your favorite song, getting prepared for a concert, or simply improving the skills you already possess - in music, everything is possible and achievable, and I'll be more than glad to prove it to you in our lessons.

Piano Lessons in Classical and Contemporary Styles for Beginning-Advanced Levels (ages 6 and up)
I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. As a pianist with 14 years of teaching experience and over 23 years of playing, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I also have successful experience preparing students for conservatory entrance auditions and for various competitions. Recently, my students have achieved the highest marks in the ABRSM exams as well as prizes in competitions. We also have a class concert for interested students twice per year. I am happy working in both a relaxed and serious approach, we simply need to discuss the objectives of the student. My own studies are as follows: I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from the University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as a soloist in orchestra (also as a harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.
