Online or In Person: Piano and Music Theory Lessons

There is not a better time to study the piano! Experienced, dedicated, and fun instruction for your goals at the instrument.
I am a University music professor, now based in Østerbro, Copenhagen, with 20 years of experience teaching across Canada and the United States.

My students work in classical and popular styles, toward goals of examination preparations, university and conservatory acceptances, as well as learning a specific style or set of pieces, or simply for life enrichment. Music is the ultimate way to communicate and to express, and it is my goal for my students to equip themselves to do just that.

Lessons are taught in your home or at my studio in Nørrebro.

As a teacher of certificate programs for twenty years, and with over 5 years teaching at the college level to undergraduate and graduate students, my skillset is constantly developing.

Available to teach at all levels for piano, music theory and history lessons, as well as tutoring for conservatory music courses.

About Me

It is my goal to equip my students with the tools they need to become independent, curious learners. Working with an individualized approach, each student helps to set goals, and I provide structures, tools, and motivate to achieve those goals.

I have been teaching for over 20 years, and love my work! Teaching is a joyful experience- being a part of the process of discovery is one of my favorite parts of my work. My students are prizewinners and hobbyists; late bloomers, young starts, and everything in between. What we all have in common is a love of music and of learning.

I have founded music schools, worked in private lesson settings, and worked for several years as a professor at an American university teaching all levels. My own work includes a concert schedule of solo and group performances all over the world; I make music videos and documentaries, paint, and am an avid lover of art, design, and beautiful plants!

My experience as a musician crosses genres, styles, disciplines.... and I love my work. There is nothing more rewarding than sharing the thrill of music with others- especially my students.

Elena
Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

From Jazz to Classical: Saxophone and Piano lessons in Amsterdam
Jazz Lessons in Amsterdam. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you love music and you feel the inner urge of learning it, I can help you out. I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical. After years of studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing and singing. Music is like language,so I start by teaching how to connect the voice with the instrument. In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I've been learning music since I was 3 years old and recently I've graduated with a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously, I've studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), Kunst Uni Graz (Graz), Temple University (Philadelphia). I'm a professional performer since 5 years ago and I've performed in several countries around the world.
