Katherine was very patient for my first singing class ever :) She explained the theory and how the body works in terms of singing well but didn't make me feel overwhelmed with information. Her constructive feedback was helpful and made me want to improve more!

Ester
Private violin lessons, Music Theory, Technical and Musical Skills
My goal is to make people of all ages and levels learn not only playing an instrument but how can music help them in their everyday life. I am an Albanian violinist, with a Bachelor degree in Classical Music (Violin) and Musicologie in Sorbonne University. Over the years, my experiences with different youth and professional orchestras all around Europe have made me understand that music is important not only for professional musicians but also for everyone. I can teach in English or French and of course in my mother tongue Albanian.

Singing and piano lessons, musical theory, combinated with Yoga
I have been teaching music for 15 years. I teach all styles. I work a lot with body awareness, improvisation and what each student needs and for their personal growth. The vocal technique that I use seeks the naturalness of the voice and body relaxation. I combine it with Yoga exercises to make it a complete job. On the piano I teach classical and popular (American cypher) and music reading.

Brice
Gives drum lessons (electronic and acoustic)
Hello, I like to transmit and exchange with my students. Seeing them understand and progressing is essential and very rewarding for me. My lessons are based on an academic method focused on learning music theory and instrumental practice. I bring a specific method adapted to the profiles of my students (age, availability, tastes, motivation, "anti-music theory"). I try to make my students independent, help them develop their listening skills, their sense of rhythm and transmit to them an efficient working method. All styles, all levels: rock, funk, jazz, blues, soul, reggae, latin

PLACES, FEES - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Music theory, music, piano and / or singing lessons
Passionate about music offers an initiation or a deepening in music (music theory, piano or song) during this particular period. My goal is to be as attentive as possible to your expectations and I will be completely able to adapt. Practicing the piano since the age of 6, I acquired a very good level of music theory and then found playful methods for this learning which may seem boring but which is still necessary. The goal is to help the motivation and confidence of the young (or at least young :)! ). Learning music theory can be for all instruments. Indeed, I know the three types of keys (G, F, and U) depending on the instruments. I am also a member of a musical comedy troupe with which we put on 8 shows with live music. So I also have a great experience in singing and piano in front of an audience. I am also preparing this year the Music option of the baccalaureate and could therefore also teach you comparative listening techniques or tell you about a work or a genre of music that interests you. Feel free to contact me for more information !

Composition and Mao lessons by a composer (CNSMDP and IRCAM graduate) and professor of international experience.
Hello! I offer composition lessons, Mao and other disciplines (harmony, orchestration, musical theory, etc.) for all levels, and according to a method similar to that of the conservatory. Always oriented towards musical practice, together we will refine the strategy that suits you best.

I believe that a student's progress depends a lot on his teacher. For this reason, I always give them the best of myself. Punctual and patient I think I have the facilities to transmit my know-how and above all I have the desire, the motivation and the pleasure to teach my passion.

Oboe and Theory lessons
I am a freelance oboist with over 10 years teaching experience both privately and in schools. Pupils have ranged from children through to adults (my oldest was 80 so it's never too late to learn!) beginners to post grade 8. I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher and my aim is to ensure that all my pupils enjoy making music and can work towards their individual goals, whether it be just for fun or preparing for music exams. I am also able to teach music theory, which not only helps with musicianship but is necessary if students are wanting to progress through to the higher music grades. I gained a Bachelor of Music and Masters degree from two of the top London music colleges; the Royal College and Royal Academy of Music. Since then, I have been performing as a soloist and with orchestras and ensembles around the world.
