About the lesson

I always try to tailor my lessons around the students, both their personality and musical taste, and I think that's very important factor whether I'm teaching young children, teenagers, or adults.

Besides the standard music practice that goes on in a class, I often listen to music with my students, improvise and talk about the mechanics and theory the music language.

You can expect a devoted teacher from me.

About Joao

Hello, my name is João and I'm from Portugal. I began my musical studies by learning alto saxophone back when I was 12 years old. Since then I've experimented with various other instruments such as Piano, Guitar and Recorder and feel very comfortable teaching all of them.
I've been teaching for the last 6 years and I have experience with students from 10 to 65 years old.

My academic qualifications (BA in Music Education/M.Ed in Music Teaching) gave a deeper insight and knowledge about pedagogy and teaching strategies. My opinion is that you can't force someone to like playing music, they have to discover it themselves and my role is to provide a context and environment to make that possible.
