    Composition and Mao lessons by a composer (CNSMDP and IRCAM graduate) and professor of international experience.
    Hello! I offer composition lessons, Mao and other disciplines (harmony, orchestration, musical theory, etc.) 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 students who wish, preparation for an internationally renowned diploma (such as the ABRSM, or other) is offered, depending on the level.

    Singing lessons for all levels in Paris and its surroundings
    As a lyrical singer I had the opportunity to perform at an international level but also to continue to teach my profession. My "teacher creed" In vocal pedagogy, I would say that I always find myself "face to face" with a new and unique instrument - the voice: each student is unique and that is why we must look for individual didactic and methodological tools. This means that I am able to lead a singing lesson in different ways so that I can find the vocal exercises or personalized and appropriate pieces of music to get the most out of each student. My vocal technique is based on breathing exercises, awareness of the whole body as an instrument, knowledge of the biological principles of breathing as well as the artistic meaning of breathing. My basic goals are: to maintain a feeling of high position while singing (singing with resonance), binding purely distinctive vowels (legato singing), developing the range of a voice step by step and balancing the vocal registers. While "building" the voice, I take the assessment and development of a student's personality seriously, which I think is undeniable in arts education. It also consists in knowing the appropriate repertoire according to the vocal development of each student.

    Creative/Experimental Writing in English (Fiction or Poetry).
    These classes are meant and designed to explore the burgeoning potentials of not just imagination, but also literary flair. The strengths will be stretched to their fullest reach, while the weakness will be worked upon together via different trials and errors. The classes will be tailored according to the needs of the individual, and according to their comfort and concerns. Editing procedures will also be thorough and perfected to produce a completed piece in the end. My tendency is to take up the experimental, self-cognizance, almost self-improvement/exploration methods. I have previously worked with various television production houses as a creative writer, with art galleries as an art critique, and often as an occult culture archivist. I have been published both- for my prose and poetry.

    Learn how to play guitar, write your own songs, or both!
    I provide guitar lessons that mainly focus on bringing out your style and expressing your sound. I can teach you a lot to do with the acoustic, in regards to fingerpicking, open chords, alternate tunings, etc. We'll identify which exercises you'll need to practice to get to the spot you want, and I'll provide you with many things to take home and practice on your own. I can also teach you any of your favourite songs that you want to learn. I also provide songwriting/composition lessons. With songwriting, there are so many aspects, like constantly changing melodies, harmonies, lyrics, mood, theme, instrument arrangements, and so forth. For beginners, I can teach you how to get started with songwriting in a way that you'd soon be able to go home and easily write songs by yourself. For more advanced songwriters, I can critique your writing process in a way that ensures you get the best song possible. Especially for native French speakers, I can help you write better English lyrics, and work alongside you in your own songs that you want to put out.
