This is how 4 referees rated Medea:
I teach piano and harpsichord at my home in Mountsorrel. I currently offer both real face-to-face and online lessons (via zoom). I have more than 20 years of teaching experience both at music school and university level. I thoroughly enjoy teaching as this means sharing my love of music with my students.
I teach all ages (minimum age 5). Adult beginners and restarters are very welcome. I recommend weekly 30 minute sessions for young students and 60 minute lessons for adults or more advanced students. In case you will be travelling from afar for occasional lessons, you may decide to book even longer time slots.
My personal focus is on baroque, classical and romantic repertoire. I also include jazz and popular music in my lessons. I keep revising the material I use in my teaching, often inspired by the individual needs and preferences of my students.
I strongly encourage my students to get involved in making chamber music. Playing easy duets forms part of my lessons from the very beginning.
Once a year I arrange opportunities for my students to perform. Taking exams is optional for my students. I follow the ABRSM syllabus. So far, I have a 100% pass rate.
I am an active performer on the harpsichord giving concerts both as a soloist and continuo player in the UK, Germany and other European countries. Where appropriate, I integrate my specialist knowledge in historically informed performance practice (historical fingering, ornamentation, basso continuo playing, historical temperaments etc.) into my teaching.
I am a member of the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians).
If you are interested, please get in touch to arrange a date for a first meeting. You can then decide whether you (or your child) would like to continue having lessons with me.
I started teaching more than twenty years ago and I have worked both with adults and children. Apart from giving individual lessons, I have also experience in coaching ensembles.
From 2003 to 2010 I taught at the University of Music and Theatre “Mendelssohn Bartholdy” Leipzig (Germany). I also taught at the Erfurt School of Music and at the School of Music and Arts in Jena (Germany).
I led several Early Music workshops. I worked as an assistant in singing master classes and I used to accompany recorder students in competitions.
Also, I helped students prepare for their entrance exam at Music College.
My approach to teaching is based on my appreciation of music and the joy of bringing it to life.
I believe that a warm and friendly atmosphere is crucial for any learning process. There is always room for a good laugh during my lessons!
Above all, my target is making myself unnecessary as a teacher. I aim to let my students become independent and confident in making their own decisions.
