Hi! My name is Raquel and I offer piano and music theory lessons in Spanish. I am a dedicated teacher. My students consider me a friendly, positive and very patient teacher.
I was born in Spain, where I obtained my Professional Music Certificate, majoring in Piano; a Teaching degree, majoring in Music Education (2:1) and a Master in Musicology (First-Class Honours).
I am a flexible teacher. I can teach classical piano but I can also adapt modern sheets taking into account the preferences and level of my students. It does not matter the music style or level.
I always find the way to keep my students motivated. I think it is the key for an effective learning.
I have been working as a private tutor for eight years. In the meantime I worked as a music teacher in a music school and in after-school activities in several Primary Schools. Most of my students have been conservatoire students, but I have also had students that wanted to learn at their own rhythm. In addition to this, I have experience teaching Music Theory and preparing students for conservatoire entrance examinations (with excellent results).
I have experience as accompanying pianist in national exams and conservatoire entrance examinations. Additionally, I have played in pubs, restaurants, cafes, and several events like weddings, congresses and conservatoire concerts.
Furthermore, as a volunteer I played the piano and made musical arrangements for a children musical; I made the musical arrangements and played with a children choir and I have been helping playing the piano in summer camps for children.
Raquel has been the teacher of piano and music of my 7 year old son Javier for about 6 months. It is not a long time, but it has been more than enough to almost finish the first course and to awaken in him the desire to keep on learning and practicing. Raquel has shown a great ability to teach children, to balance fun classes and formal lesson. Now he is going to enter the official school of music and I have no doubt that largely it has been on her merit.
If you are lucky enough to work with her you will see how she wins student's and the family’s hearts with her good deeds and her big smile.
I have know Raquel for 6 years now. She was a piano private tutor by then. At that time, it could already be noticed that she loved her job. She used to spend time adjusting and writing piano sheets to adapt them to the students specific preferences (cartoon songs, movie soundtracks,etc.) and levels. All her students stayed with her for years until she moved to UK.
Raquel has experience preparing her students for the conservatoire exams with outstanding results. She has the ability of keeping them motivated, no matter their age. Additionally, she also has experience with students with special needs (ADHD). She was able to create a safe atmosphere with them, that helps them to increase their self-esteem and feel more sure about themselves. She has always been a very dedicated teacher and a very trustworthy person.
