Private Flute and Music lessons in English or in French

Hello everyone!
My name’s Gareth, I’m a young music teacher from Ireland specialising in the flute. I have recently moved to Cologne and am delighted to begin welcoming new students to my private teaching studio!

I obtained my Bachelor of Music from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in the UK, graduating in 2015. This included a diploma in woodwind instrumental teaching from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). I then moved to Paris to continue my musical studies at the Ѐcole Normale de Musique de Paris on the Cycle de Perfectionnement. I spent 3 years there studying with the principal flute players of both the Opera de Paris and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, whilst also taking advanced classes in music pedagogy.

I began teaching flute, saxophone, clarinet, bassoon and oboe in Northern Ireland at the Lisburn School of Music, and then continued teaching at the junior conservatoire of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. In Paris, I worked for the Mairie de Paris as both a flute/woodwind and choir instructor, in both primary and high schools. I have consistently taught private students throughout all this, ranging from ages 4-80 and beginners through to advanced players.

My teaching style is relaxed in nature, however structured and goal orientated. I enjoy working with my students to set short term targets along with long term goals, and together work out a strategy and plan to achieve these aims, with the overall aim being enjoyment and love for making music. I love working with children as well as with adult learners, at all levels from total beginners to advanced players.
I teach currently from my new home teaching studio in Weidenpesch, Cologne. I have several slots to teach at the students home, however please contact me on here to arrange a time that suits. Travelling to the students home will include a travel charge unfortunately!
I speak fluent English and French and am offering lessons in both languages!

I hope to hear from you all soon,
Gareth

About Me

Hi everyone!

I'm Gareth, I'm 27 years old and I come from Ireland. I moved to Cologne just under one year ago after having studied at both the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

I've been teaching since I was 16 years old, firstly in my local Primary and Secondary schools in Ireland. After moving to Cardiff at 18, I achieved a diploma in Woodwind Teaching from the ABRSM and taught extensively in both music schools and privately in Cardiff (as well as outreach work.) I continued this during my 3 years in Paris, where I worked in schools for children aged 4-17 as a flute teacher and choir director, as well as having a large number of private students of all ages and standards.

I like to take a structured approach to teaching, setting long term goals and short term targets together with the pupil, and then working out an efficient practice regime based on these. I aim to keep the a good balance between hard work and enjoyment, and take is a priority that all my students enjoy making music and playing the flute first and foremost.

I am available to teach in English or French, as well as teaching English or French with music lessons.

As well as catering for children, I also enjoy teaching mature or more advanced students, be it someone picking up the instrument again after many years or someone who hopes to pursue a career in music. If you wish to sit certain exams such as the ABRSM or Trinity grade/diploma systems I am more than happy to include this.

I also offer beginner lessons in Clarinet, Saxophone, Oboe, or Bassoon (roughly grade 5 standard.)

I've performed as an orchestral musician, chamber musician and soloist in the UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Hungary, Ireland, Czech Republic and the USA. My teachers have included Robert Winn, Magali Mosnier, Catherine Cantin, Roger Armstrong and Colin Fleming.

If it sounds like you'd be interested in learning with me and exploring the flute together, please message me!

Hope to see you soon,
Gareth

David
Math & Physics for school and University Students. SAT, IB, A levels
I'm a Math&Physics tutor for school students of all ages, Mostly help graduate students in SAT, IB, A levels Math&physics. My classes consist of only one student because every student needs a different approach. I believe that the best way to teach someone sth is to understand how his/her mind works and after that find the most effective and convenient method for the individual. Teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this to help students by sharing my knowledge and skills, so if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to teach you! And if you aren't motivated enough, then I will do all I can to help you find that motivation that you need for success. Currently, I'm doing online classes with a virtual board, which makes classes the most efficient. If you have any questions feel free to text me, will reply to you as soon as possible

Beginner rock/folk/indie guitar and songwriting lessons in English!
Hi! Have you been wanting to learn how to play guitar but never got around to it? Or do you have songs in your head but you don’t know how to get them out into the world? Well, I’m here to help! I am an American living Köln and have been writing songs and playing guitar since I can remember. For the past five years I have toured across Europe and Australia as the main songwriter, guitarist, and pianist for Arna Rox, an original band that blends rock/folk/blues/country/soul/indie to create a unique sound. Since covid started and touring stopped, I have been concentrating on a very different genre of composition: video game music. No matter what the style, though, I apply the same principles of melody, harmony, rhythm, movement, and soul. ***I am fully vaxxed and received my booster in January 2022 ***Lessons in English only (for now)

Aurel
Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). Recently, the band was part of Keep An Eye The Records's finalists (March 2022). Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!
