Learn how to play the flute or maybe would you like to try the computer music ? ! Flute, Music theory, Piano, Music history
Flute lessons for you! Or maybe computer music? I am a professional flute player with an experience on competitions, auditions and concerts. I have a Master Degree in Orchestermusik with distinction at the Zurich University of Arts. I also have a Pedagogy Diploma and experience of three years teaching flute in a music school and 10-year experience in private lessons. Playing music for years had also made me develop love for computer music which I can also share with you or your child. We can develop a unique practice where you play your instrument and combine it with a software for more immersive experience ! My teaching experience comprises teaching adults as well as kids, for diverse levels of experience. With my background on theory and history of music I will help you to discover a wonderful world of music through playing the flute. I can also prepare you for concerts, competitions, auditions and exams, or boost your creativity using the software together with the instrument ! All ages and skill levels are welcome! Some of the most important aspects on which I focus on the lessons are: -your good and solid sound and technique -rhythm -careful attention to your own sound, so you can be your own teacher while practicing at home and...MUSIC , FUN and CREATIVITY ! In my practice I always try to find the most natural way of playing and making music which is different for every person and which tends to bring out the most joy while playing!

Have you always wanted to play the flute? Or...have you always wanted to have a hobby that improves the quality of your life? Learning a musical instrument not only sustains and feeds the brain, but it also improves so many other cognitive and physical aspects of the human body.

Wolltest du schon immer Querflöte lernen? Oder...bist du auf der Suche nach einem Hobby das dein Leben verbessern kann? Doch es sprechen auch andere, wissenschaftlich belegte, positive Auswirkungen für den Musikunterricht: Das Erlernen und Spielen eines Instruments fördert die geistige Entwicklung, schult die Feinmotorik, weckt kreatives und emotionales Potential und vermittelt wichtige grundsätzliche Aspekte für ein erfolgreiches und glückliches Lernen!

Ariel
Private Classical Piano Lessons
Hello, I offer private lessons of classical piano, at home, at home, or even online, the one that suits you best :) I am Ariel, a Brazilian pianist living in France for the past 6 years, and in this time i have acquired significant experience as a music teacher, in music schools and with private lessons, also with children, young people and adults - and because of the confinement, I also have experience with lessons online. These courses can also be in French, English or Portuguese ! My method is mainly focused on the autonomy of the student and the joy of making beautiful music. These two principles will guide us in our work, and any technique learned will have the goal of making music more beautiful, of allowing you to actually make the music you want to listen to. Of course, I will adapt to your personal needs and goals, depending on your situation: - IF YOU (OR YOUR CHILD) ARE ANY BEGINNER, we will start with the basics of position, finger action, just like solfege. It will be a work parallel to the piano and the notebook, to develop intimacy with the instrument and knowledge of musical language. - IF YOU ARE ALREADY INTRODUCED TO THE INSTRUMENT, you have played the piano before and want to take up again or you are taking lessons in a music school and do not want to drop your studies during the summer holidays, then we can work on all that concerns the improvement of your game: I will talk about sound, technique, the development of a personal interpretation and your musical culture, deciphering and sight reading, finally, any subject in the music that interests you, that 'be more practical or more theoretical. It will be a great pleasure for me to teach you this profession and share my love for music. If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me!
