About Me

My name is Kay, I am from Australia and I began playing the saxophone at the age of 10 years old. I was admitted to the Victorian College of the Arts and attained my Bachelor of Music at the Conservatorium of Music in Melbourne. I also spent two year in France learning performative and learning technicalities of the Saxophone in Bordeaux - since 2015 I moved to Switzerland to further enhance my studies at the Zurich University of Arts in Master of Music Performance. Since being able to gain different perceptions and experiences through education, I have gained my own method through not only the saxophone and music but also through analysis of the body and movement.

I hope to also bring these aspects through my teaching methods and students can acquire different lessons in accordance to their needs of learning. I have also worked with many age groups and different levels. I believe that everyone has a different learning method and I would also like to introduce how music can be expressed and be enjoyed by everyone to share!

Luna
Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities.

Kristine
Professional instrumental lessons for viola
I offer beginners and advanced players professional instrumental lessons for viola. I will try to work towards your goals and requirements so that you can develop as a musician. My teaching is technically precise on the one hand, but it also promotes your musical creativity and enthusiasm, for example by making music together. Perhaps you are already playing the violin and would like to switch to the viola to play in the orchestra or in a chamber music ensemble, or you are curious about the somewhat less familiar instrument of the string family. I would like to pass on my passion to you to bring the beauty of the viola closer to the general public. At the end of my pedagogical studies at the ZhdK for instrumental lessons, I am an intern in the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich and an active chamber musician in various ensembles.

Gregor
Flamenco & Blues guitar teacher in Zürich for all ages
I‘m 24 years old man from Slovenia. I‘ve been playing guitar for almost 10 years now, I compose and dive deep into the and art of it. I‘m very interested in teaching and seeing how a person is developing it’s skills once they dedicate themselves to the subject. My approach is very precise and if one desires so, I‘ll teach from total basics as reading the notes and other music theory or we can also work from tabs. I lived in Spain, Granada for some time where I‘ve been to the fountain and the roots of flamenco itself and became more familiar with it. I studied art pedagogy when I was in university in Slovenia, where I learned some pedagogy basics, but I think a teacher has to see beyond the frame and find it‘s own way of passing the knowledge. I speak spanish, english, croation and Slovenian fluently and I speak some basic German and Italian, but I started to work more seriously on both of them. I teach at my home, but offer webcam lessons and also can come to student‘s house but charge additional costs for travel.

Nicolas
Gitarre Unterricht - Guitar - beginners and advanced
Nicolás (DE) Gitarrenlehrer aus Buenos Aires, Argentinien. Als Gitarrenlehrer verfügt er über mehr als 15 Jahre Erfahrung und hat sich auf klassische Musik von der Renaissance bis zur Musik des 20 Jahrhunderts spezialisiert. Er hat auch Erfahrung in Tango, Jazz und Bossa Nova. In seinem Unterricht können Sie die Musik von Josquin des Prez bis zu Heitor Villa-Lobos kenner lernen, einschliesslich Piazzolla und The Bealtes. Er studierte an den wichtigsten Konservatorien in Buenos Aires. Er erhielt zwei Diplome als Lehrer und Hauptlehrer. Zurzeit absolviert er einen Masterstudiengang für Alte Musik (Instrumente der Lautenfamilie) an der Zürcher Hochschule der Künste. In den letzten zehn Jahren war er regelmässig als Solist und mit verschiedenen Ensembles in den grossen Konzertsälen der Stadt Buenos Aires zu hören. Er ist auch in Paraguay, der Schweiz und Italien aufgetreten. Im Jahr 2009 gründete er die Camerata Argentina de Guitarras (Gitarrist und künstlerischer Leiter 2009-2019). Im Jahr 2014 veröffentlichte er sein erstes Soloalbum "Morro de Saudade". ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Nicolás (EN) Classical Guitar Teacher from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is currently living and studying in Zürich, Switzerland, doing a Master’s Degree program in early plucked string instruments at the ZHdK with Eduardo Egüez. He studied in Buenos Aires with Marcela Sfriso and Eduardo Isaac. As part of his training, he also took several courses and seminars with renowned guitarists, such as Pablo Márquez, Eduardo Fernández, Walter Ujaldón, and Miguel de Olaso. In the last ten years, he was featured regularly as a soloist and with different ensembles in the main concert halls in Buenos Aires city, such as CCK, Usina del Arte and Centro Nacional de la Música. He has also performed in Paraguay, Switzerland and Italy. In 2009 he founded the Camerata Argentina de Guitarras (guitarist and Artistic Director 2009-2019). In 2014 he released his first solo album "Morro de Saudade”. He has made national and international premieres of Latin-American composers such as Leo Brouwer and Javier Farías, with an ensemble and as a soloist. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We can work in: -Repertoire and interpretation. -Preparation for concerts and admissions to Conservatories or Universities. -Also musical reading and renaissance tablature. -Also Jazz, bossa nova and tango. -Music theory My classes are for: -Amateurs and advanced students. -Kids, young people, and adults. I can teach in English, Spanish, and High German. More about my classes My guitar teaching model is based on books and the approach of guitarist and pedagogue Abel Carlevaro. In some way, it is about understanding and analyzing the nature of the movements we make to play the guitar in the simplest way possible. Just as to build a building you need a good foundation, to build a system of skills that allows us to be musicians, we need to know and practice in a conscious way all the movements we do. These movements are what we do when we play just one open string or what we need to do to play the most difficult piece of the repertoire. I pay special attention to achieve a good balance in teaching. I try to make the student develop at the same time the techniques to play the guitar and the artistic sensibility needed to make music. Because no matter the technical level of the student, my classes will always be oriented to making music and to be able to enjoy the processes that the musical activity involves. A simple guitar piece takes on another dimension if the basic principles of musical interpretation are applied. After getting to know and listening to how my students play I propose a short and medium term work plan. This plan is presented taking into account the objectives and wishes of each student. Exercises and pieces are included that will also allow to know the repertoire of the guitar. Therefore, each work plan includes specific and general contents.
