My name is Andrin and I've been an ever-growing musician and teacher since my earliest memories. I teach children from grade one up to their A-levels and I also tutor adults who would like to widen their musical horizons and challenge themselves to become one with music. Age and genders won't matter here. As long as you're a student who welcomes a playful and yet disciplined approach to learning, I'm sure I can guide your development.
Usually I adapt my lessons to the needs of each individual student, but structurally I am always adhering to the key principles of pedagogy:
-Introduction of Lesson Content
-Reviewing previous session
-Collective approach on new technique/topic
-Transmitting theoretical knowledge to practical sensation
-Target-setting and further perspectives (homework/exams)
This way I want to make sure the student understands the course of the lesson and the goals we set to be achieved by the end of it. I value transparency and participation in structuring a lesson plan which is why I am totally open to closely elaborating a curriculum as a team (mentor and student).
I have studied Pedagogy in 2016 and 2017 (Pädagogische Hochschule Luzern) and am counting nearly two years of practical teaching experience in various forms. Teaching classes of up to 15 children (max. Grade 6) but also mentoring students in 1-2-1 lessons makes me a flexible and diverse tutor. Currently I am online-tutoring 14 singing, piano and beatbox students between 6 and 50+ years old. Predominantly I am following the curriculum/syllabus of ABRSM (Associated Boards Royal Schools of Music) and I rely on a professional set up including two camera angles, various microphones and direct-input instruments.
One of the main take-aways of my previous students was the enthusiasm that they’ve developed under my accompaniment as a coach. I manage to excite my learners’ curiosity with my own sparking passion and vivid interest in music.
As a musician and multi-instrumentalist with a lifelong experience in stage performance. I am a certified vocalist (BA, University of Sussex) and a trained pianist with over ten years worth of knowledge. Other instruments that I play are handpans, various other percussive instruments, beatbox and the recorder.

Perfect! Andrin geht extrem auf unseren Sohn ein und sorgt dafuer, dass Unterricht mit Spass einhergeht. Kompetent - empfehlenswert!
Til is a keen learner and talented beatboxer. I very much enjoy seeing him progress and being there to guide him on his journey as a young musician. He has autonomously worked out a way to document our lesson contents and is eager to practise concepts/grooves/sounds we covered in the area of beatboxing.
Perfect! Geht super auf seine Schüler ein, hat schöne Ideen, wie man den Unterricht, auch online, kreativ gestalten kann!
Callum ist ein junger, begabter Musiker mit Enthusiasmus und Elan. Seine Energie ist sehr ansteckend und es macht grossen Spass, ihn auf seinem Weg zu begleiten und seine Lernfortschritte zu beschleunigen.
Perfect! Andrin is a very dedicated, passionate singing teacher. He's got professional equipment set up for online teaching, hence we've enjoyed excellent sound quality during the lessons. Andrin takes student's interest seriously and provides music sheet, etc. learning material tailor made for individual student. My 8 yo son enjoys lesson with Andrin very much! Thanks Andrin! (:
Timothy's pitching and tone in his voice are already at a high standard, which is why we can look at proper vocal technique and confident performance deliveries in the coming time. It's great to be working with such a young and talented learner. :)
Perfect! Very polite, attentive, patient and teaches well. Would recommend Andrin 100%
Reece and Scott are both two incredibly enthusiastic learners who have a great passion for beatboxing. I'm happy to give them guidance in discovering their own style of mouth percussion.
I have worked with Andrin for more than five years now. We are in the same Band, we were studying at the same University and our roots are close as well.
I have learned so much about singing and percussion from Andrin. He is the first person I contact when I have a musical blockage, when I discover a new exciting Band (chances are that he already knows them).
Andrin is a talented songwriter, a talented singer, a passioned teacher and a damn good friend.
Andrin is an excellent musician, a musician who is always curious to discover more in music, he never stops learning. Andrin always looks for new paths in music, new ideas, new teaching approaches. He is a teacher who tries to understand the student and find a specific method for each person, as everyone is different and has different musical needs and skills to develop. I could not recommend this tutor more! Excellent musician (vocals, piano, percussions), excellent teacher and a great person. Andrin will not only help you develop your instrument skills, but will also help you finding your true self in music.
When I met Andrin more than a decade ago, his musical interest and skills were already outstanding. He's only become better since! It's mind bending what sounds he is able to produce with only his mouth and vocal cords! If you're interested in learnig how to beatbox, Andrin is the exact right Superprof for you. He has a remarkably wide vocal range himself and is thus very well capable of helping you extend yours.
His rhythmic competency isn't limited to beatboxing: he passionately helps you making your singing or playing groove!
Andrin is keen to make you feel comfortable and at ease and has a good sense for the needs and current level of his students. Choose Andrin as your Superprof and you're guaranteed to see yourself progress!
Adrin's passion doesn't seem to have an end. super sick, and always gave new in-depth insights to anything I've asked. Super reliable. Would very very highly recommend
Andrin is a remarkable pedagogue and a very kind person. During our lessons he made me feel confortable and knew how to adapt his approach to make me understand and improve my vocal techniques. He's also a great musician. I would definitely recommend him!
Andrin is a very talented musician - and a brilliant teacher when it comes to any musical topic, may it be vocals, piano or any rhythmic lessons.
He’s a very straight forward person that uses different approaches to respond to each student individually.
He is also one of the kindest people I know and really good in making the people around him feel comfortable.
