I am a seasoned music teacher/tutor & classical/contemporary performer working and residing in Athens, Greece. An inspirational teacher, I have taught elementary-intermediate-advanced levels of music throughout the years in classrooms,one-to-one settings,and online. A passionate performer with vast experience in the field, I am always willing to share my knowledge with students and to teach instrumental courses to those that have the piano as their chosen instrument.
In previous posts I have been responsible for teaching the IB MYP Music curriculum, the IB Diploma curriculum, the British curriculum and the American curriculum to Secondary/College students as well Greek (and European) National Music curriculum to Conservatory students.
I have also been very active in planning/organizing successful presentations of students concert material,examination material and ensemble repertoires. I have also been responsible for forming and directing Primary School Choirs/Middle-High School Choirs/Semi-professional Adult Choirs/Classical Ensembles/School Bands (Pop/Rock/Blues). Many of these music groups have been presented in recitals, concerts, school shows, formal events, classical evenings and in annual teenage musicals.
My years of teaching music in some of the leading Conservatories of Athens have familiarized me with the rigorous preparation and the high performance standards required for Ministry-set Examinations, Exit Criteria, Piano Competitions and Master classes and I am an expert in supporting students in preparation and presentation of such repertoires.
I've also had the opportunity to teach the IB Music Program for 11 consecutive years. I worked closely with Year 1 and Year 2 students preparing them for their Exit Criteria and I successfully support students in their preparatory work for the IB Music Examination up to the presentation of the Exam itself.
My years of teaching the program have provided me with a wealth of information, materials, books, cd’s, past papers, online tools that can be used to help students in preparation for up-coming examinations and allow them to excel in their studies.
