Tutoring Approach:

My name is Stefano**Removed By Admin**, I am a Music teacher.
I teach cello, singing, violin, theory-notation and piano for beginners.
I love teaching and I have a considerable experience in the field.

I have been teaching the above subjects privately and in schools for more than ten years.
I taught in private schools both in my country (Italy) and in the UK.
In Italy I taught at "Giovani all'Opera" Music school, which is located in the very heart of Rome.
In the UK I taught at Dallington school in Barbican, A to G music school in Sutton and Coconut Grove music school in Notting Hill (London). In those schools I taught violin, cello, singing, notation and piano, both individually and to classes.

In my experience as a music teacher I had a student with down syndrome as well, and I managed not only to make him write and read music properly, but also compose and write lyrics for original songs. I consider this as one my biggest achievements.

I graduated in Cello at the Conservatory after a regular 10 years studies. I studied at the most prestigious Conservatory in Italy: Santa Cecilia in Rome.

During my time at the Conservatory, I had the opportunity to study several music subjects such as singing, music theory, music history, piano, notation, classical harmony, orchestra ensemble, choir, violin, cello and quartet. Most of them with related exams. I started teaching music quite young as I used to teach children of my family's friends, even before my graduation. Then I increased my teaching more and more over the years, teaching music to a vast range of students of any age and level.

I do enjoy teaching. I love to transmit my knowledge to students and give them the key to express themselves at their highest potential, through this fantastic art that is Music. During my lessons I encourage them to enjoy music, while learning. With children for example, I use cartoons and drawings associated with notes, and little funny games to help them remember the notation. When teaching cello, I play my instrument together with them using simple and nice little songs, in order to improve their aural skills, form their ear and musical taste through this extraordinary instrument.
I have also composed several melodies for two cellos myself, and I'll soon create an actual didactic book out of it, it is a study about the development of the technique together with the pleasure of playing cello with the teacher.
When teaching teenagers or adults instead, the method is of course less childish and more technical, but the amusement is always there.

I can describe myself as a patient, sweet but quite firm teacher. I tend to infuse the discipline through sweetness and joy, so that my students don't suffer from the dedication that the music study requires.
I also try to understand what kind of person I have before me, and I tailor the lesson accordingly. I usually manage to create a good connection with my students and enable them to make the best out of the service that I offer.
Throughout my experience I've had many students who achieved important goals, such as entering prestigious Conservatories, getting high marks at exams, obtaining Diplomas and Degrees.
