About the lesson

_I love music and I love teaching music. I believe that learning any kind of subject should be something inspiring, joyful and challenging. That is my goal when teaching.

_I prepare the lessons having 2 main concepts:
1) A holistic view of music when learning: Learning to play an instrument is very rewarding, but i discovered that if you learn how to deepen your ability to listen to music, why does it work , how to make music by yourself and concepts like these, the process feels extremely more rewarding and interesting.
2) Every student is unique: Each one has their own pace, their own talent, their own expectations and taste. A personalized lesson is extremely important, because it helps you to stay motivated and is more fulfilling if you accomplish what YOU desire!
_When I teach, I learn. Literally. I have transcribed and learned a lot of music my students asked for, and it was very fun and challenging. This helped me in shaping my knowledge in a lot of music genres.
_In addition to the weekly lessons, I am ALWAYS available for any kind of audio, video, and question concerning your music practice and learning process. This has been extremely helpful because you don't have to wait to the next lesson for answering your doubts or sharing your inspiring moments.
_I provide only ONLINE LESSONS. I've found them very valuable and practical. Learning music is not difficult, and with a little guidance, you will be able to discover a lot of new things in the comfort of your own home.
_The lessons for adults are usually one hour long for adults, and 45 minutes long for young people, but this can vary depending on the student needs!

About Tomás

Hello! My name is Tomás. I was born and raised in Argentina, a beautiful and quite weird country in South America.
Since i was a child, i have lived with music around me. The first instruments I grabbed was a guitar, which formed my personality and helped me gain friends and joyful moments throughout my life. Then I grabbed the piano, and it was a life changing experience. I fell in love with it, and I approached my adult life learning it, having fun with it and making music around it.
In college, I earned a Degree In Orchestral Conducting, which helped expand my musical horizons and taught me the ability to connect with others in a musical context.
Nowadays, I'm actually releasing my first albums with songs I wrote (of course, at the piano). The search of song-writing and performing those songs is what inspires me the most!

Around all this process, i discovered the joy of learning and teaching. I am grateful for having the possibility to teach every day. I started first with young kids in their first stages of musical learning, and then I started to have adults from all ages and backgrounds! I am very fond of my students, and I appreciate the bond that is made within the process.
I believe that the best qualities to teach are Patience, Passion and Empathy. I work every day on those!!

    1) When did you first develop a passion for music and your favorite instrument?

    When I was twelve years old, I met Lucas, a kid from another grade in my school, who introduced me to the guitar. From that moment, I became honestly passionate about music! Everyday I played something or listened to some new music. And that keeps happening up to this present moment!
    I found my favorite instrument, which is the piano, when I was sixteen years old. There was an old piano in a friend's house, and I started playing a melody by ear, and that simple melody, with that old piano, took me to the road that got me where I am today.

    2) Is there a particular type of music or artist that you listen to on a loop without it driving you crazy?

    There are a couple artists which I can't get enough. One is Bruno Major. A role model as a musician for me. His musicality, and his song-writing is just beautiful.
    As a type of music, I enjoy songs most of all. They are a simple concept in which you can place all of your artistic spirit in favor of the song. I'm also a singer-songwriter and it's something I enjoy deeply.

    3) Explain to us the most difficult or riveting course you could personally give to a student of music.

    I could help you learn score reduction, which is the process of playing on the piano an orchestral score! I've worked it for three years during college, and it's quite demanding 😰.

  • 04

    4) What do you think is the most complicated instrument to master and why?

    To master an instrument is a never-ending process, so any instrument is "complicated", because that takes a lot of motivation, patience and love. But, if I had to pick, I'd say the violin is quite a difficult instrument. It's so sensitive, and so tiny! Also, so beautiful ☺️.

  • 05

    5) What are your keys to success?

    First of all, having fun and pleasure in every step of the process.
    Also, practicing with focus on a daily basis! Having short and long term goals will help with the motivation and the challenge of daily practice. And, of course, a great tutor will help deeply in this area.

    6) Name three musicians you dream of meeting in your favourite bar in the early hours of the morning. Explain why.

    I know he is not in this world anymore, but I would love to meet Mr Leonard Bernstein. He was such a visionary, an excellent teacher, and a great composer. Chatting with him, for sure would be an enriching experience.
    I also would like to meet Finneas, and Paul McCartney. Because they are legends, and I love their music.

  • 07

    7) Provide a valuable anecdote related to music or your days at music school.

    I studied Orchestral Conducting at college. It was quite an experience. I wasn't bad at it, but it made me very nervous so I didn't really enjoy it too much. One time, a cellist told me to breathe with the music, not trying to controlling it, but to gently carry it. Next time I jumped to conduct, I felt so much difference. I felt lighter, and the music too. I am very thankful to that man.

  • 08

    8) What are the little touches that make you a Superprof in music?

    For me, a great teacher needs to be empathetic, understanding and patient. I, thankfully, have this qualities and I've been practicing them for a long time.
    To be a great music teacher, you also have to be a musician, which I am. And I keep trying to be the best musician I can everyday. So, I'm constantly learning too!
    Also, personally, I always adapt to the student desires and intentions. I don't want to impose anything, I just want to help you achieve your goals in the best and healthiest way possible :)
