Lessons - Students

Building structures that fight to give a voice to the speechless is one of the values I learnt to care the most as a working woman, and that is the reason why I feel engaged with teaching music. Music is a tool to learn a whole different language and improve intelligence and creativity, no matter which is your background. Music is a way of finding how to express yourself in a specific language, and it is at the same time a fun and fascinating process. As a music teacher, I face a challenge every time I train a student, because learning music and learning piano implies a very personal developement.

I am a superior piano professor and I have started teaching in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my home country. In the first semester of 2018 I worked as a full-time piano teacher in WKMT Piano Institute in London, UK, where I have trained and developed my pedagogic skills working with students from all around the world. This experience allowed me to mentor from professionals to early ages with very diverse backgrounds. These are the kind of experiences worth working for, and that confirm my engagement to my pedagogic aims. I am intending to continue this project in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where I live now and where I intend to share my knowledge and experience with new students.
