Classically trained pianist & CRLA certified tutor with 5 years of teaching experience

Methodology

Each student is unique and learns differently. I always start by making sure that the fundamentals are highly understood and build up from there. I try to understand each student's unique way of learning and adapt it in my style. I combine visual, audible and hands-on methods of teaching. I like using real life experiences and songs as examples to make the class more interesting. I always try to help my students understand how to apply what they learned in their own personal work.

Background

I am a Composer for Film and Video Games and Classical pianist from Athens, Greece. I have a diploma in Piano and Music Theory from Trinity College of Music. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of music in Boston, with a dual degree in Film Scoring and Contemporary Writing & Production, and a minor in Video Game Scoring. During my time at Berklee, I was a core music tutor and taught classes such as music theory (jazz and classical), tonal harmony, counterpoint, conducting, and piano. I am a CRLA Level 2 certified core music tutor. I have also had several piano students (from 8 to 25 years old). I have experience teaching all my classes in person and online.
