    Piano and Music Theory--Suzuki method or self-teach with guidance!

    I teach many options for music lessons, including piano, music theory, guitar, violin, viola, and mandolin.

    In our piano lessons, you will learn proper technique from the beginning, to set you up for success, avoiding future pitfalls and making your learning easy and swift! You will learn how to identify the keys on the keyboard, how to use your fingers and begin to master the fine motor control necessary for piano playing. You will also begin to learn chords, how to coordinate both hands, and begin learning songs right away!

    Extra information

    You will need a strong internet connection with Skype, and you will need to provide your own instrument and purchase your own music and books as recommended. Young children (ages 0-7) require considerable parental involvement, and parents are required to attend all lessons for students in this age range.

    About Me

    If you are ready to take on music lessons, your life will never be the same. Music enriches our minds and lives in many ways, including expanding our expectations past what we think is possible for ourselves! I've taught hundreds of students over the past 15 years, and have loved helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing. I've been described by students as encouraging and fun, and my teaching style is warm, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and just plain old stage fright! I work with you to set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... It's what I love about what I do.

    I began my violin studies at age 9, with my humble public school string program. I continued through high school and into college, playing and singing with auditioned district ensembles, school musicals, and chamber choirs, coming in as runner-up in my high school's concerto competition and performing twice in Carnegie Hall. I studied opera, vocal pedagogy, and passed my piano proficiency exam from the advanced class.

    In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and soon after, joined the Kansas City-based Celtic folk group, Tullamore. I have enjoyed 13 seasons with this lauded regional group, playing countless esteemed Celtic festivals across the country and embarking on five international tours of Ireland and Scotland, as well as a Caribbean cruise hosted for our fans.

    In 2014, I relocated to Hampton, Virginia, where I auditioned for the Hampton Roads Philharmonic, and currently play as a first violinist.

    In 2015, I began playing with Brackish Water Jamboree, an award-winning Americana band, host of the annual Norfolk Festival in Norfolk, Virginia and featured on NPR's Out of the Box series with Paul Shugrue and the national American country and roots show The Blue Plate Special.

    Throughout this time, I have enjoyed teaching a full and enriching music studio of students: hosting recitals, open mics, and ensemble rehearsals, and watching students achieve goals they didn't know were even possible. I continue to teach online via Skype, Facebook video chat, and Google Hangouts, and I look forward to working with you to accomplish your own musical aspirations!

    Education

    University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Bachelor of Music in violin performance, 2003
    While working towards my degree at UNL, I was selected regularly to play in extra ensembles and pit orchestras, and also studied vocal technique and pedagogy, as well as piano.

    Hi, there! With over 15 years' experience in teaching hundreds of children and adults, and over 25 years' experience performing all over the US and in Europe, I am confident in my ability to work with you to achieve your goals! I specialize in viola and violin lessons, in many styles, as well as music theory. As a musician, I have toured and performed internationally, playing and singing with an American-Celtic folk group (Tullamore). I currently sing and play guitar and fiddle, performing and touring with an award-winning Americana group called Brackish Water Jamboree. Additionally, I play first violin with the Hampton Roads Philharmonic orchestra here in the US. I can work with you in many styles, including not only classical, but also Celtic, American folk or "old-timey", American country, blues, jazz, and rock styles. Students describe my style as encouraging, humorous, and relaxed, and after working with hundreds of children and adults over the last 15 years, I am confident in my ability to work with any student, at any skill level, including those with special learning needs or requests. We would have individual, live video-chat music lessons in English, and we can choose a learning method together that best suits you and/or your family's needs.

I also offer lessons in mandolin, both with chords and melody, to learn bluegrass or other traditional styles. We will spend time learning proper technique that sets you up for success by avoiding future physical roadblocks, making learning easy and swift for you. We will also learn chords, and begin learning songs of your choice, including melody and rhythm. We will have you playing your first song by the end of the second lesson!

    Cours de solfège et d'éveil par la professeur expérimentée
    Cours de solfège qui visent à développer votre oreille et votre potentiel de compositeur. Pour pouvoir arranger n'importe quelle chanson, sont nécessaires les connaissances en solfège et harmonie. La méthode progressive (ou intensive) assez logique qui demande juste un peu plus d'efforts au début;-))

    Dorelle
    Cours de violoncelle et/ou solfège à Bruxelles et Leuven
    Je m'appelle Dorelle et joue du violoncelle ainsi que du piano depuis toute petite. Pour moi, l'art en général porte un rôle particulièrement important dans la vie :-) Actuellement, après un an d'erasmus en Allemagne je vais finir mes études à Leuven au Lemmensistituut. L'important pour moi dans l'apprentissage du violoncelle est de s'amuser tout en veillant à trouver une bonne position qui ne va pas générer de tensions par la suite. Je donne une heure de cours en général, mais peux m'adapter aux envies de l'élève sans souci, que ce soit au niveau des durées de cours ou pour trouver des morceaux sympas qui changent du répertoire "classique" ! Je peux aussi fournir une aide à des élèves plus avancés qui auraient besoin d'un support pour réussir un examen ou progresser plus rapidement.

    Pianoles | Songwriting | Audio Productie - De Stolk Methode
    Piano (alle leeftijden): Leer de piano ontdekken op een intuïtieve en creatieve manier op jou niveau en vanuit jou interesse. Naast de basis duiken we in de wereld van: - Pop & Jazz: direct songs spelen, toonladders, schemas, harmonieën, melodieën, ritme, swing. - Improvisatie: zo ontwikkel je spelenderwijs je oren, je muzikale geheugen en muzikale vocabulaire. Songwriting: Leer ontdekken hoe je een Song bestaande uit tekst en muziek (piano / gitaar) tot leven en op een hoger niveau kunt brengen door meer inzicht te krijgen in: opbouw, structuur, dynamiek, contrasten, harmonie, melodie, ritme, groove……. Audio Productie: Leer ontdekken hoe je een instrument goed opneemt en een track professioneel produceert in de ‘in the box’ studio van begin tot eind. - Opnemen: microfoon plaatsing, levels, reflecties ruimte. - Mixen: editen, balans maken, panning, sound maken (plug ins) - Masteren: de slagroom op de audio taart, loudness, RMS, dynamiek. In mijn ’Stolk Methode’ staan de volgende onderdelen centraal: leren je oren te gebruiken, creativiteit stimuleren, muzikale geheugen ontwikkelen, muzikale vocabulaire uitbreiden, niet enkel blindvaren op muziek notatie, ritmegevoel en timing ontwikkelen, harmonische en melodische kennis uitbreiden, gevoel voor vorm en structuur vergroten.

    Piano&Music Lessons by Aleksandra (Buenos Aires-London-Rotterdam)
    Piano, harmony, music theory, aural training, arrangements and composition dedicated teacher. Vast experience with different ages and levels, preparation for international exams, auditions and competitions. "I am a superior piano professor and I have started teaching in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my home country, 8 years ago. Recently I was living in London, UK, where I worked as a full-time piano teacher in WKMT Piano Institute where I have trained and developed my pedagogic skills working with students from all around the world. This experience allowed me to mentor from professionals to early ages with very diverse backgrounds. These are the kind of experiences worth working for, and that confirm my engagement to my pedagogic aims. Building structures that fight to give a voice to the speechless is one of the values I learnt to care the most as a working woman, and that is the reason why I feel engaged with teaching music. Music is a tool to learn a whole different language and improve intelligence and creativity, no matter which is your background. Music is a way of finding how to express yourself in a specific language, and it is at the same time a fun and fascinating process. As a music teacher, I face a challenge every time I train a student, because learning music and learning piano implies a very personal developement. I am intending to continue this project in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where I live and study now (CODARTS - Master of Music - Tango) and where I intend to share my knowledge and experience with new students."
