Reviews (1)

I had the great privilege of having Sofia preparing me for a competitive international orchestra audition in November 2022. During the brief time we had for the preparation, Sofia has not only shown thorough understanding of violin techniques - from the fundamentals to the more virtuosic - but also a command of the whole spectrum of musical expressions, both of which she was able to convey with clarity and effectively. Furthermore, due to her extensive experience in performances/auditions, she identified my strengths and weaknesses immediately from the start and designed a strategic practice plan specifically for me, which helped me improve rapidly within our short time frame and maxed out my performance at the audition. She is a rare teacher who is encouraging and shares the students’ passions, without compromising critical judgement in any flaws in performance, giving me a realistic assessment of my abilities and a great sense of security before the audition. Musical matters aside - she is a caring, warm, and passionate person who does not hesitate to mobilise all her resources to help me -intellectually or otherwise, despite her busy schedule. I honestly could not have completed my audition without the advice and confidence she gave me. 10/10 would recommend.

Violin Lessons, Geigenunterricht, Theory of music, Music, children’s lesson, Unterricht für Kinder
Mein Name ist Margarita. Ich bin Absolventin des Moskauer Konservatoriums und HEMU du Lausanne. Ich unterrichte jetzt seit 8 Jahren Geige. Ich unterrichte sowohl Anfänger als auch Fortgeschrittene. Das Alter meiner Schüler muss 3 Jahre betragen. Meine Schüler sind Gewinner von internationalen Wettbewerben. Ich gebe sowohl Einzelunterricht und auch mit kleinen Schülern (3-6 Jahre) Gruppenunterricht (wenn sich die Schüler in einer Stadt befinden). Mit den Schülern spielen wir gemeinsam eine Vielzahl von Stücken und lernen, im Ensemble zu spielen. Ich unterrichte nach meiner Methode und verwende auch die Suzuki-Methode und andere. Beim Musikunterricht mit Kindern unterrichte ich auch Theorie und Fähigkeiten im Notenlesen, und meine Schüler komponieren seit der ersten Unterrichtsstunde. Mein Unterricht fördert das musikalische Gehör, das Rhythmusgefühl, die Intonation der Stimme und die Koordination der Bewegungen. Außerdem fördere ich die Aufmerksamkeit, das Gedächtnis und das Denken der Schüler. Ich unterstütze alle kreativen Initiativen meiner Schüler. Glückliche Gefühle, Interesse und Produktivität sind meine Unterrichtsziele.

Nicolas
Ukulelen unterricht / Ukelele lessons. Kanton und Stadt Zürich
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 any kind of songs, strummings, fingerpicking, fingerstyle 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 or ukelele 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. 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.
