Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Doctorate Student and Concert Pianist with years of experience gives piano lessons Online

Methodology

My teaching method changes from student to student. If I am working with a beginner, I try to get them interested in music and fall in love with the pieces we are playing. My approach is fun, but I also like to set goals for my students. If I am working with a professional musician, we work on musical pieces on a deeper, more detailed level.

Perfect! Salome is a brilliant piano teacher. She is super nice and friendly. It's not easy to teach a 6-year-old boy piano online, but my son really enjoys her lesson. During the lesson, you can feel her enthusiasm for music. She also gave many professional tips on how to improve and practice daily. My son is looking forwards to having more lessons with her.

Salomé's response

Tim has a great future ahead of him. He is very intelligent and talented! He has a wonderful personality and is very interested in finding out more about music! I haven't had any 6-year-olds ask me a question on how to perform until Tim! It was great to have Tim's mom, Donna at the lesson! She is very present and attentive to Tim's needs! I know Tim will make great progress and will grow up to be a very good pianist!

Toscane is extremely nice, is very talented and eager to learn! She played Beethoven beautifully and I am sure she will keep making progress and become an even better pianist with time!

Salome is an excellent teacher. She is very professional, charismatic, intelligent and passionate about music. Not only is she an expert in classical music, she can also improvise in many styles such as Bossa Nova. She is super nice and knows how to connect with each student. I feel lucky to have met her.

Have you noticed? When people do what they love their eyes shine! Salomé is such a person. She’s passionate about music and it’s inspiring! I had a pleasure of visiting her in Warsaw while she was completing her Postgraduate Artistic Training at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music; those were the unforgettable musical days of my life! I attended several of her concerts at Nowy Świat Muzyki and Chopin Salon, as well as rehearsals, and got engulfed into her wonderful world of music. I saw how much hard work, love and determination go into the preparation of each piece. Salome practiced day and night and I felt like she was pouring her heart into every note she played. Apart from being a talented musician she’s also a beautiful human being. She’s an open and genuine person who radiates positive energy, and her easygoing and welcoming nature makes people feel comfortable around her. The cherry on top is Salome’s brilliant wit and sense of humor! One can never get bored with her. I believe she makes a wonderful musician as well as a tutor because she’s got it all: talent, strong will, intelligence and a radiant, charismatic personality. I am happy to know her and recommend her wholeheartedly!

When I met Salomé during my studies at one of the most widely acclaimed royal conservatories in the United Kingdom, I was much struck by the fact that, even there, she stood out as both an accomplished musician and as an exemplary tutor.

Throughout the year I’ve known her, Salomé has exhibited a flair for effective communication; the ability to capture the imagination of a group of listeners; an aptitude for engaging students with humour, relatability and a strong presence; an inexhaustible capacity for empathy; and a sincere and profound dedication to the continued education and enrichments of her pupils.

One memorable personal experience of Salomé’s talents is an occasion in which she gave a recital of Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier” sonata (a work whose length and difficulty bar its performance from all except the most elite of musicians). Not only did she display breathtaking technical masterful, but also, her interpretation was of transcendent beauty. The round of applause she gained was very long, very loud and, in my humble opinion, very well deserved.

It is not only her technical ability that impresses me, however. Salomé also possesses great natural charm and authority and fluency: that which is often described as the charismatic part of tutorship. She holds, at her core, a simple kindness that attracts various people, and could put even the most anxious of individuals at ease.

In short, Salomé is, by a not inconsiderable margin, one of the most splendid pianists and tutors I have ever had the good fortune of knowing. It is my highest pleasure to recommend her.

Salome is a very experienced teacher and her lessons are super fun. I had no previous experience playing piano and I was able to play a piece by the first lesson. Salome has been teaching me for the past few months and I will continue working with her in the future. Highly recommended!

Interview with Salomé

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you first develop a passion for music and your favourite instrument?
Salomé — I can't remember when I first fell in love with music. My mother is a piano professor, so music was all around me since I was born. I absolutely adored the piano from as soon as I heard it, but also loved drums, saxophone and the flute!
QUESTION 02 | 08
2) Is there a particular type music or artist that you listen to on a loop without it driving you crazy?
Salomé — I listen to many different genres of music - Classical, jazz, funk, electronic. I can always listen to Bossa nova. I absolutely love Jamiroquai and any kind of funky music! There are periods when I listen to a certain genre of music on loop and I can't seem to stop! Then it changes to a different artist or genre.
QUESTION 03 | 08
3) Explain to us the most difficult or riveting course you could personally give to a student of music.
Salomé — The most difficult and interesting task we have a teachers is to teach our students how to express themselves freely. How to put our fingers in service to the music, so that the technical side of music poses no threat to our musical one. That's something we can direct our students to, but they will certainly have to work towards this goal themselves as well.
QUESTION 04 | 08
4) What do you think is the most complicated instrument to master and why?
Salomé — In the words of the great masters - "piano is the most difficult instrument to master, but the most joyous once you've mastered it"
QUESTION 05 | 08
5) What are your keys to success?
Salomé — Love, practice and determination.
QUESTION 06 | 08
6) Name three musicians you dream of meeting in your favourite bar in the early hours of the morning. Explain why.
Salomé — I would love to have met Oscar Peterson, Frederic Chopin and Antonio Carlos Jobim. All three are my favorite musicians representing different genres of music. I admire them all for many different reasons and I think it would be incredible to sit down with each of them and share our musical journeys with one another.
QUESTION 07 | 08
7) Provide a valuable anecdote related to music or your days at music school.
Salomé — I don't know if it's much of an anecdote, but I have dreams sometimes, that I have a concert, where they announce a different programme from what I have to play, I step on stage and am forced to play a piece of music, which I have never even looked at! I have spoken to a few friends about this and they all have the same dreams! Must be a musician thing!
QUESTION 08 | 08
8) What are the little touches that make you a Superprof in music?
Salomé — I like to get to know my students, so along with being their teacher, I become a friend that they can trust. They can always email me between lessons if they have more questions about their musical pieces.
I tailor my lessons to each individual student. I like to make lessons extremely fun and informative. If I see that my student likes detailed work and is a serious professional, we go into as much detail as we can, music really is a never-ending world of discovery, so I like to make sure there isn't too much for the student to struggle with on their own.
If the student is learning piano for fun, as a hobby, we will concentrate on getting quick results, and learning as much as we can during the lesson, so that they don't have to practice too much on their own!
