I have a Music Teacher Degree from Germany, comparable (NARIC) to British Bachelor (Honours) degree standard, and broad experiences as a vocal, piano, clarinet and saxophone teacher for students of all grades and ages.
I am familiar with the classical as well as the jazz and pop stiles of music and have experiences in teaching music in the English, German, Spanish and French language.
In my instrumental and singing lessons I provide the students with skills in vocal and instrumental techniques, music theory, improvisation techniques, score reading and knowledge about music styles and history. It is fundamental to me to motivate the students to delight in making music, to support through the lessons their individual creativity and sense for music appreciation and music aesthetics, as well as to facilitate the pleasure of learning, studying and concentrating through the positive energy music can give.
In my lessons I also prepare the students for performances on stage as well as for playing and singing in various combinations of bands, orchestras, choirs and musical groups.
