What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching privately for three years. During the last year I was doing an internship at a music school in Porto, Portugal, while coming seasonally for private teaching in London, where I got familiar with the exam processes in England. I am a volunteer at a Social Care Home for children, where I help people with social adversities to develop their general skills and improve their social awareness through Music. I have also been leading workshops for children in Portugal on how to practice the piano on a creative manner, integrating Creative Drama, Movement and Narratives into the performance. An article about my workshop practice has been published in Korea with the title "Creating Music that Moves".

Do you have a personal message for students?
I am a very accessible person and open to any requests. Every student is different and every student has her/his goals with Music learning. The advantage of private tutoring is that we can specificy and target the teaching-methodology to the student's personal needs.
