Piano and music theory course
Actualizado: 24 abr
The piano and music theory course is designed to offer comprehensive musical training, personalized to the age, level, needs, interests, objectives, and preferences of each student in a pleasant space. They are developed from a methodically ordered material, specially prepared for the progressive acquisition of the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve independence in learning. To consult the available materials, I invite you to visit the following link.
The classes are individual, and their recipients can be:
Children from 4 years of age
Adults, no age limit
The course is divided into three levels, each of which contains four successive stages:
Basic (A1, A2, A3, and A4): intended for students who want to start studying piano or who have experience, but need to consolidate basic concepts and skills.
Intermediate (B1, B2, B3, and B4): intended for students who have developed autonomy in learning simple works and need accompaniment to solve medium-difficulty works.
Advanced (C1, C2, C3, and C4): intended for students who wish to start or are undergoing professional musical training, for example, at the university level, and need accompaniment in this process or wish to complement their training.
For more information about the contents and criteria of the levels, I invite you to visit the following link.
At the end of each of these stages, the student can choose to take a level completion test designed to consolidate the skills and knowledge acquired before continuing with the next one.
If you have musical experience, you can also choose to take a placement test to decide on the right material before starting classes.
To learn more about the tests, I invite you to visit the following link.
The classes can be developed in two modalities:
Online: the advantages of online classes are that they can be carried out from anywhere without the need to travel and can be enriched by the interactive possibilities of digital platforms. To develop, it is necessary to have a space equipped with an instrument (piano or keyboard), a device that allows the transmission of audio and video, and an internet connection.
Face-to-face, at my home in Düsseldorf, Germany: The advantages of face-to-face classes are that they do not depend on connectivity and allow for more personal interaction. To develop, it is necessary to approach the classroom space.
As complementary material, text and video explanations of the contents and activities proposed in the course are offered. You can visit this material at the following link and on my YouTube channel, where you will also find videos of various works for piano with a brief review of it, the composer, the visualization of the score, and the recommended level to play it.
In all modalities, the student will also have activities to do at home with material for self-correction, delivery for asynchronous correction, or synchronous correction in the next class, according to the student's preferences and the nature of the activity.
In classes aimed at children, it is recommended that an adult in the family participate in class if possible. The family's participation in class and weekly practice has the advantage that children get used to maintaining a study routine during the week, it is a pleasant activity to share with them and in parallel the companions also exercise musical skills. Families can opt for this possibility without a surcharge if they wish.
Prices vary according to the modality and duration of the class. The current rates are:
The class length can be 30, 45, 60, or 90 minutes. 30-minute classes are best suited for children, especially in the 4-9 age range, 45-minute classes for youth and adults, and 60- and 90-minute classes for adults interested in intensive study with specific objectives.
The recommended frequency is one class per week, but they can also be held fortnightly, monthly, or twice a week, with rates proportional to those in force.
The payment modality can be:
Per class: An invoice is issued after each class provided that can be paid in cash, by bank transfer, or PayPal within 14 days.
Monthly: An invoice is issued after the first class of the month.
