- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach adults, teenagers and children as well. I am happy to teach every level from beginner to professional. And besides working as a lecturer for music students, I always loved to teach people who wanted to learn music as a hobby.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

My priority is teaching my students how to feel music. Depending on the level, I concentrate on understanding the theory of music.

For my piano students: I teach them the fundamental techniques like, hand and finger positions, how to use the wrists, and the body using my Full Body Perception Method. Then I combine all those with repertory work and interpretation.

Please check my website for more information: (concealed information)

Every level is welcome. Please feel free to ask any questions.

I was a complete beginner when I started studying with Didem.
Her clear methods and engaging personality have been helping me to get where I want.
Both from technical and musical points of view I know much more now.
And I can finally play "The Phantom of the Opera" :)
