Piano, Music Theory and improvisation for kids and adults

Piano lessons for all levels and for those who are interested in exploring the nature and the possibilities of the instrument. I will teach you how to play, sing and write music but also how to improve your skills in understanding the music score. The structure and the material of the lesson are based on the skills, preferences and wishes of the pupil. My pupils usually ask from me to transcribe some of their favourite pieces on piano according to their skills, something that often is very useful and fruitful for their progress. Music demands patience and practice but all these become easier when you have a goal and enjoy the process.

In the first lesson we will talk about your interests, motivation and goals and we will create together a personal course structure.

The lesson can take place online and at your place or mine.

Extra information

You will need a electric keyboard or piano at home.

About Me

My name is Myrto and I am from Greece. I am a pianist and composer based in The Hague.

I am active both as a pianist and keyboard player and I have been a member of various music projects in Greece and the Netherlands. I am passionate about composing, but also enjoy improvising with local groups in the city.

My music has been performed by ensembles, soloists, and orchestras in Greece, Spain, Italy, Belgium, and the Netherlands, while I have participated in a number of multidisciplinary projects and have collaborated with dancers, film directors, actors, painters, and others. I have composed music for films, theatre plays, and animations.

Besides composing and performing, last three years I discovered that teaching music is one of the most powerful experiences that constantly develop me as an artist and mainly as a person. Understanding, supporting, motivating, enjoying together the experience of music is something invaluable. I truly believe that music is a language that everyone should have the access to learn and communicate with.

I have been teaching students of diverse age groups, with different backgrounds, levels, and styles. For me, as a teacher, my goal is to motivate the pupil to develop his/her skills and share with him/her my knowledge and passion for music.

The structure and the material of the lesson are based on the skills, preferences, and wishes of the pupil. My pupils usually ask me to transcribe some of their favorite pieces on piano according to their skills, something that often is very useful and fruitful for their progress. Music demands patience and practice but all these become easier when you have a goal and enjoy the process. :)

In the first lesson and we will talk about your interests, motivation, and goals and we will create together a personal course structure.

The lesson can take place at my place or at yours.

Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.

Violin for everyone! ABRSM or Trinity are possible
:) Hello! I've studied at the Royal Conservatoire where I followed the “Master in education”. I teach at a studio in the city center or at your place if you wish. I can also do online lessons if you like the idea. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. I you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

Caterina
Harp, Piano and Music lessons/workshops for students of any age
By mixing this learning together with my harp (and basic piano) skills, my goal as a Music teacher now is not only to teach you “the right notes”: I will do my best for you to enjoy Music, to discover the instruments, to be creative and curious, to give space to your ideas and to express yourself through playing, using few words but a lot of practice. Every lesson will be a moment of reciprocal exchange of knowledge and ambitions, a new adventure for everyone to learn from each other.

Gina
Piano and music theory for every age. Learn how to play the piano easily and quickly!
Have you been dreaming to play the piano? Or, you had when you were a kid but then..life happened? I am here to teach you and show you it is never too late! Music is for everyone, from 4-year olds to 80-year olds, no age limit! We create our lessons together and we make them interesting and fun, not strict and boring. My name is Gina and I started to play the piano at the age of 8 and fell in love with it. I consider myself a musician in a more holistic way than just a pianist. I have experienced also multiple other instruments such as the viola, the tampouras (traditional byzantine instrument), as well as different choirs and orchestras. At the age of 21 I gained my first professional degree in harmony of music from the Conservatory "EHOGENESIS" and one year after in classical piano from the Conservatory of Saint-Dimitris. Meanwhile, I was accepted at "The Royal Conservatory" of The Hague, to continue more advanced piano studies. Now I live, study and teach piano in The Hague. The construction of the lessons is tailored on each student's needs and desires. I choose pieces and exercises from different books, while guiding the students on practising songs that they like. Every lesson is an opportunity to learn something new with main purpose the musicality and expression. The piano lessons are fun and productive at the same time! For the students who want to understand deeper the music, I am also teaching music theory. This is a separate class from the piano, but they combine perfectly together. *Lessons take part online (espesially in these Corona times), but of course also in person. Hope to see you soon!
