I base my classes on the individual wishes a student has and combine them with the latest techniques, lots of patience and never focus on musical perfection but on the joy a human being should have when interacting with music
After having completed a 15-years education at an Austrian music school with theoretical and practical classes on distinction level I have been giving guitar lessons in person and online via Skype for more than 4 years to children and young adults always concentrating on their needs and wishes.
I am a historian and art historian who recently completed two master’s programmes with distinction at the University of Salzburg in Austria and have been working as a tutor for 4 years both in a university setting with adults at the age of 17 to 70 and in an informal environment with children at the age of 4 to 15. As I am also trained as a classical guitarist and singer, I taught both classical guitar and music theory as well as art history with a special emphasis on iconography and academic writing. Besides these subjects I provided courses for in my mother tongue German I also gave one-to-one Italian lessons in a marketing company proving that I am capable of both working in a team adapting to prescribed learning targets and to creatively structure lessons myself. Convinced of live-long learning and adapting contents and teaching methods to every learners’ needs and wishes, I am seeking for an opportunity to support others with their individual learning goals and to develop my skills as a tutor and communicator further.
