Sara
A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons
Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

PIANO AND SOLFEGE COURSES BY SKYPE CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Hello, I am a professor of piano (Studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Jaella Institute in Paris). For beginners: The course I give is global (learning to read, solfeggio etc.) so that I can give you lessons even if you have no training. We can start from scratch. For advanced students or those who have taken a break (sometimes longer) in their piano education, I often proceed to a repositioning of the technique or work directly on a directory of choice. I use an effective and dynamic method and I have experience with both adults and children. I chose to give my classes by videoconference to avoid wasting time and to minimize additional costs. Feel free to contact me for more information.
