Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level

I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age.

I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Extra information

To own a piano or a keyboard is required for the lessons.
I also teach music theory and harmony if asked.
In case of online modality, lessons will be held on the platform that best suits the needs of the student.

About Me

I am a pianist resident in Budapest. I moved here two and a half years ago to get my piano Master degree at the Franz Liszt Academy.

In addition to being a concert artist, I have been a piano teacher for the past ten years, with experience both in music schools and in private lessons. Living abroad I offer online lessons from my studio in Budapest.

I believe that the study of music, regardless of the level you want to reach, is a very powerful means to develop a person's sensitivity, a taste for beauty, an interest in art as well as patience and perseverance, all very useful qualities in everybody’s life.

My experience has taught me the importance of choosing a teaching method and a personal approach that suits the student, in light of the fact that everyone is different. It is up to the teacher to understand this diversity and to know how to adapt to the student, and not the other way around. For me, being a good music teacher means understanding the personality of those in front of you and transforming their qualities into musical expression. I am happy to pass on my many years of studying music and piano I have been taught by my talented teachers, starting from my father, with whom I started as a child. From all of them I have learned and will always carry with me the love and respect for this art, qualities that I in turn transmit to my students.

Education

- BA in Piano at Conservatorio di Musica Giuseppe Verdi, Torino (Italy)

Experience / Qualifications

In addition to being a concert artist, I have been a piano teacher for the past ten years in Italy and Hungary. My teaching experience both in music schools, in private and group lessons covers the whole range of ages and my studies in pedagogical training find the best approach to meet my student's need.

Reviews (11)

I have took 5 classes with Giorgia so far and I must say that she is a quite patient teacher and has passion for teaching. She opens your eyes, minds and hearts to unexplored worlds by music. Since I am 25 and very much beginner level, I would say that better late than never :)
Excellent teacher. Highly recommended!
Professional and highly knowledgable teacher! Excited to continue working with Giorgia. My playing and my understanding of the music I'm working on is already improving. Highly recommend!
Giorgia is an excellent and very knowledgeable piano teacher. I’ve already noticed a big improvement in my piano playing having adopted the recommended changes to my technique. The lessons are focused and enjoyable and seem to pass very quickly. Giorgia is extremely patient and friendly and I’d have no hesitation in recommending her.
Giorgia is a very professional teacher with a great passion for music and teaching others. I feel like even after a couple of classes I could improve my knowledge a lot and in general I enjoy very much the great attitude and attention towards student's needs and goals. Will definitely recommend Giorgia to anyone who is looking for an efficient and fun way to learn playing piano.
...
Hello everyone! I'm Giorgia and I come from Torino, Italy. I offer my native knowledge of Italian to any of you, who wants to discover this beautiful language. I teach for all levels, from very beginners to advanced speakers, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I can also help with university exams and school works/assignments. Being a pianist and a piano teacher, I already have lots of experience with teaching and pedagogical approach with the whole range of ages. The lesson is intended to meet the student needs: the focus can be on the grammar, conversation or literature. In case of a middle-level speaker, the lesson will cover all four language's abilities: listening, speaking, writing and reading. My suggestion of a well planned lesson is, for any level, to divide it into two parts: grammar first and then conversation (covering all the abilities mentioned above). Thank you for your attention and looking forward to meeting you !!

Piano Lessons (Classical Music and Non classical), Music Theory, Harmony, Musical Arrangement, Composition
At my studio my students will not only learn how to play the piano, but they will receive a complete musical education in order to achieve their musical dreams. I will give all my best so everybody will get the tools for developing their own voice, helping them to master the instrument and teaching them all the theoretical knowledge they’ll need to make their particular personality shine. Openness, joy, dedication, creativity and passion for music are some of the things that you will find in the international environment of my studio. I care about who my students are and what they have to say to the world, and I will help them to develop it from the very first lesson. In my class you will not only be able to receive piano lessons but also will learn to understand how the music works as a language. If the interest and the profile of the student goes in the direction of the purely classical music performance, the lessons will be focused on a deep and conscious piano technique development, practicing techniques, musical interpretation, history of music, history of the piano, applied harmony on the keyboard, analysis, and score reading by a method that I have developed for over 15 years of experience. And if the students wish, I can help them to prepare for the ABRSM exams and competitions as well. All this is aiming to achieve in a very practical and exciting experience the best results in the fastest way possible. But if the profile and the interests of the students goes on another way, I will give them all the tools they need to understand the language of music in depth, so they can find their own voice on the instrument. In that case the lessons will include contents of piano technique, score reading, applied harmony on the keyboard, composition, improvisation, musical arrangement, music production, recording techniques, jazz and pop music analysis and performance. Both programs can be combined depending on the focus and the profile of the student, or in case the student would like to go deeper in one of the previously mentioned subjects there is the opportunity to take an independent course of specialization on the desired topic. At the end of the semester every student will perform at the winter and summer concerts held every year and will have the possibility of making a recording session with the material worked during the term. With this, the student will not only be able to see his progress and work, but also will give him a direct experience of performing and working on a live or studio recording session, which is a fundamental part of the developing process of every musician. Hope you can join and if so, I’ll be very happy to teach you!

Damjan
Piano lessons, classical repertoire, jazz standards, composing and improvising on the piano
Through my courses I will teach all levels of piano playing. My approach will consist of forming an individual repertoire according to each student's needs. In case that students want to integrate piano lessons with composing, that is also something I would strongly encourage, since piano is the most frequently used instrument for composing music.

John
Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level/Beginner/ Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons with a focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms from a broad base of musical genres. Classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. Each lesson is designed to keep the student at the peak of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing their own technical skill. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their passion to the music they want to play. In the first lesson, we can get to know each other and you can get an idea for how the lessons will be taught while letting me know what elements you'd like to focus on in the future.

Maria
Fast progress piano lessons with the effective Russian method
Welcome to my online Piano Class. I will happily help you achieve your musical goals, from the basic fundamentals of piano playing (reading music, positioning your hand on the keys) to building a wonderful sound and technique, allowing you to play any song. I respect all students, I listen to their concerns and I am always happy and creative in helping them express themselves through music.

Fun Through Music: Violin and Music Theory Lessons
Hello, I'm Adelina! I'm Romanian and I've recently graduated my master’s in violin performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. Apart from playing music, one of my other passions is teaching. While having a degree in pedagogy, I've had several violin and music theory students so far. I’m experienced with teaching children/teenagers between the ages of 4 and 15. However, I’ve had adults in my class as well! As my profession requires, I’m calm, creative with musical games and have quite a lot of patience. I’m fluent in Romanian and English, however I’m able to have basic conversations in Russian as well and I’m in the process of learning Dutch. Don't hesitate to contact me and let's make learning fun! :)

Daniel
Learn Solfège, improvisation, composition and harmony
I am a multi-instrumentalist (saxophone, transverse flute, keyboard), composer and arranger (SACEM member since 2012), excellent improviser. This course will allow you quickly, whatever your instrument and your technical level, to understand and master the chord sequences and the articulation of musical language according to these sequences. In addition, you will learn the most frequent or rare harmonic structures used by composers. And, theory notwithstanding, you will learn to develop your ear to identify harmonic structures. This course also includes an introduction to the history of jazz.

Dina
Classical piano lessons for children and adults, exams preparation
I have been giving piano classes for children and adults for over 10 years, including preparation for ABRSM and LCM exams. Positive attitude and enabling atmosphere at my lessons help students advance quickly and enjoy piano playing, no matter what level they are.

Hernan
Berklee College of Music Graduate offers private lessons of Guitar, Harmony & Improvisation in Utrecht
The way I teach actually depends entirely on the student. The way I explain the concepts, plan and structure the lessons and approach each subject all depends on whether the student is a beginner, intermediate or advanced, and whether he or she has some experience on the subject. Each student has different needs and different abilities. It's just a matter of getting to know the student, in order to identify both the weaknesses and strengths on which to work.

When teaching I always attempt to organise targeted lessons that cover varying musical aspects depending on the students' skills and preferences. I teach either online or at my place in Berlin, Mitte.

Gema
Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Sabina
Piano lessons for professional musicians or students want to study as a hobby
My basic principle and method in piano teaching are to show how to work on piano as a self-education. Most students cannot continue their studies after they stop working with a teacher. I explain the efficient ways of working with the instrument. I suggest taking 4-8 hours of lessons per month. Each lesson can be between 1-2 hours. It depends on the level of the student. During the class, I assign students to have at least 20 minutes of finger exercises, then to work on pieces that were individually programmed with the student. Additionally, I give listening, reading, and video as homework. I allow students to send me any progress or questions via recorded video or video interview so that they can follow their work until the next class.

Ostap
Transcribe any audio to the sheet music and learn how to play it

I can help you to transcribe the music and write it using a special software on my computer. You will get your own version which is written especially for you according your level and your skills. If you are accordionist I can help you to read the sheet music and learn the song you chose.
