Sara
Piano lessons given by concert pianist with four postgraduate diplomas
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 many years of experience in teaching at different levels and aspirations of students, 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 while getting to know basis of classical harmony. 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 degree, as well as two different Postgraduate degrees and two different Concert musician diplomas in special program for gifted concert artists at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

Piano lessons for all ages and levels - Piano lessons for all
--- english below --- I am a Canadian and Greek pianist completing my graduate studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel. I offer personalized piano lessons in French, English and Greek for students of all ages and levels in a warm and friendly environment. During my studies I gained a lot of educational experiences in several countries by giving private lessons and teaching in music schools as well as in international masterclasses. My life as a musician has allowed me to collaborate with many musicians as a soloist, with orchestra, in chamber music concerts, accompanying singers in different musical genres, accompanying choirs and accompanying masterclasses. I propose to introduce this acquired flexibility into my musical teaching, in other words, the ability to adapt to the needs and interest of the student while having fun and making visible progress. I'm a 24-year-old Canadian and Greek Master's student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel offering individualized piano lessons in English, French and Greek to students of all ages and levels in a friendly and encouraging environment. Throughout my studies I have obtained plenty of teaching experience in multiple countries and languages giving private lessons, teaching at music schools and at International seminars. My life as a performer has allowed me to collaborate with many different people as a soloist with an orchestra, in chamber music concerts, accompanying singers in a variety of musical genres, accompanying choirs and as an accompanist of International masterclasses. It is this acquired flexibility that I wish to encompass in my teaching, the ability to adapt to the students needs and interests while having fun and making visible progress.

Piano, music theory/harmony, jazz/classic, music reading
Experience has taught me that it is very important to build a warm, trusting relationship with students, especially the very young ones. Bringing laughter, a sense of humour, games, and creating imaginative stories with music are my motives throughout the lesson. The goals and character of each student guides the teaching approach I adopt - some students enjoy learning for the joy of music, whilst others prefer to aim for recognised qualifications or grades. In both cases I aim to make learning enjoyable. I always encourage all my students, of whatever age or ability, to do some simple improvisation, and have developed several ways to facilitate this. I emphasise developing technique and music theory as they make the foundation of becoming a good musician throughout life.
