Following our first Japanese lesson at home with Asako, I can say I had a very good time with a patient and gentle teacher despite my rusty Japanese. We worked on oral conversation, reading and a little writing; It was a pleasure and the time passed very quickly. Asako is very flexible on the intensity of the classes according to my personal needs and motivation, which is why I was looking for private lessons outside of school so I am satisfied.

Que vous souhaitiez élever votre jeu de Chopin à un niveau supérieur ou jouer votre morceau préféré au piano, je suis là pour vous aider à atteindre cet objectif.

J'ai obtenu le Diplôme Supérieur de musique de chambre grâce à un concours et je suis actuellement inscrit dans un programme DEM en accompagnement au piano au CRR d'Aubervilliers. Avec ma formation en musicologie (Licence en musicologie), je suis en mesure de donner des cours particuliers en formation musicale, en harmonie et en histoire de la musique.

Réservez dès maintenant votre premier cours, et entamez votre voyage vers l'excellence pianistique. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whether you want to take your Chopin to the next level or play your favorite song on the piano, I can help you achieve your goal.

Roméo
Private piano lessons, music theory, technical and musical skills
My goal is to ensure that the student, whatever their age or musical level, learns not only to play and master their instrument but also to have fun even in the technical learning phase. The working methods revolve around knowledge of the instrument, technique, style, musicality but can also occasionally focus on historical contextualization if the student wishes to approach this approach. The repertoire offers endless avenues of work and great musical discoveries!

Sebastian
Piano/Keyboard Lessons (Music Theory, Aural Training, Sight Reading, Composition and Performance)
Music is a globally recognized form of expression that connects and unites us in various ways. As a musician, I have tried to inspire people from different walks of life to feel the joy and love of playing the piano and creating music. I have composed music for multiple bands, played for choirs, and accompanied many influential artists. I cleared the Grade 8 examination from Trinity College of Music, London in piano performance. My main goal as a music teacher is not just to provide training and lessons, but to inspire students to continue to learn and gain skills on their own and master the art of music composition. I offer classes both at the student's location and my own. My curriculum blends aural training, sight reading, performance, and composition (tailored to each student's proficiency level).

Luis
Pianist (CNSMDP graduate) and internationally experienced teacher offers piano lessons.
Hello! I offer piano lessons for all levels, and according to a method similar to that of the conservatory. Always oriented towards musical practice, together we will refine the strategy that suits you best. What I like most about individual lessons is to adapt the course to the needs of the student, like the teachers who marked my training. I believe that a student's progress depends a lot on his teacher. For this reason, I always give them the best of myself. Punctual and patient I think I have the facilities to transmit my know-how and above all I have the desire, the motivation and the pleasure to teach my passion. For those students who wish, preparation for an internationally renowned diploma (such as the ABRSM) is offered, depending on the level. The courses are given in various languages: including French, English or Spanish.

Ju Young
Private Classical Piano Lessons! All age and levels! (in English)
Hello! I am a 25-year-old South Korean student in Paris. I am currently enrolled at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris learning Classical Piano and in the course of the "Diploma Superieur de Execution". I started the piano at the age of 5. I was born in a musical family; both of my parents being opera singers and my sister a violinist. When I was 8 years old, my family moved to Budapest, Hungary, where I started to have lessons privately with professors at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. In High-School, I enrolled at the Bartok Conservatory of Music in Budapest. I was awarded the Bachelors as well as the Master's Degree at the Franz Liszt Academy and have graduated with the Highest Honors in Piano Performance. I would like to share and teach what took me many years to learn in just a few months. I know that there are those who have and had difficulties like me learning the piano and feeling stuck or non-progressive, or not being able to improve. I have solutions to those problems. If you are one of those in need of quick and fast adjustments, please do not hesitate to contact me! I have a teaching experience of 6 years and all my students were those who needed assistance with international competitions, entrance exams, and general piano learning. If you have problems relaxing your arms, muscle pain, tiring back, or no energy in your fingertips, then I might be able to help you and fix those problems.

Fernando
Violin and viola teacher (Français - Español - English )
"Talent is developed through practice..." - Shinichi Suzuki I have been giving violin lessons for 10 years, my working method is based on the Suzuki method, the mother tongue method. A child first learns to speak before learning to read and write. Language learning is done mainly by listening and mimicry. For music, it's the same, you must first master the basics of the instrument before knowing how to read notes and scores. Whatever the age of the student, beginner level or confirmed, I offer private lessons of violin and viola. No knowledge or musical notion is necessary beforehand, the theoretical achievements are made as and when the discovery of the instrument.

Gabriel
Piano lessons, harmony, composition, counterpoint
I give piano and music theory lessons with my own method. The music theory part is not purely theoretical but always mixed with practice. My method emphasizes the deciphering of scores, given that the objective is to allow the student to be as independent as possible thereafter. It will also have a technical aspect, but I prefer to have her work directly with pieces rather than dry exercises. I also give lessons in harmony, counterpoint and composition for those who would like to go further.

Louise
Music theory workshops and lessons for beginners average and advanced.
Currently studying music theory at an advanced level in the conservatory of Paris, I give lessons for everyone. I started my musical studies at seven years old in Lorraine where I got my music theory certificate in 2020. In 2021 I entered Paris' conservatory and progressed to where I am today. I has been more than ten years that I study musical theory and I am aware of the difficulties people can face learning it, especially children that tend to see it as boring. I discovered many different aspects of this subject and I would like to teach them to others while adapting to their needs and wishes. I can use the voice, the body, an instrument, some reading and lots of listening to develop the musical personality of students. Don't hesitate to ask me for any other informations!

Louise
Music theory / musical awakening
Former student in preparatory class literary music option at Lycée Fénelon of Paris, currently music student, master at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (CNSM), I teach music theory and viola da gamba. I have a great sense of organization, I know how to find work methods that correspond to each student so that everyone learns in the most effective way possible. I regularly replace one of my teachers of viola da gamba in a conservatory in the Paris region. I am told very pedagogue. I really like children. I know how to be friendly, friendly, and set limits for the student to learn in the best possible conditions. I have always loved solfeggio and think that this subject can be taught in a fun, interesting way, in connection with the instrumental practice of the student. The musical awakening is a first approach of the music which allows the child to anchor the rhythm in his body, to develop his ear and his creativity through the improvisation, while beginning to learn the first notions of music theory . The group's musical awakening lessons make the child grow in his relationship to the other, by encouraging him to listen to and respect the interventions of other children, to react to these different propositions. I obtained my Bachelor's degree with Distinctions at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in June 2015, with a result of 16/20 for solfège.
