About Me

I'm a saxophonist from Zurich and I'm currently studying jazz music at the Zurich University of the Arts. In the first few years of playing saxophone, I've mainly played classical music, but soon my interest in jazz music and jazz improvisation grew bigger. Right now, I'm specialized in jazz but I'm always open for different music styles. I've played in Latin Orchestras, Funk bands, Pop bands and Balkan bands, so whatever your preferred music style is, I'll try to help you as best as I can!

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!

Gemma Galeano
Saxophone lessons adapted to your needs and wishes!
I have many years of teaching experience working in Music Schools and as a private teacher. I have taught from children to adults and prepared students for entrance exams. My educational philosophy relates to increasing the motivation of the students through showing them easier, effective and fun tools and ways to work on our instrument. I am specialized in classical saxophone, but I combine it with contemporary saxophone, jazz, contemporary improvisation and piano. We could also combine our classical saxophone lessons with those specialties, in order to obtain a complete learning. We could also improve the musical base through theory and solfa lessons. If you are interested in playing the saxophone as a hobby or professionally, I will adapt the lesson contents taking into account your needs and wishes.
