Are you or your children interested in learning an instrument, learning to play in a band or songwriting?

I am a qualified music teacher and experienced multi-instrumentalist, creative musician, singer-songwriter based in the Geneva/Nyon/Annemasse area. 

At my studio in Ville-La-Grand, near Geneva and Annemasse, I teach:

- guitar

- violin

- piano

- song writing and

- bands/ensembles.

I am also able to travel to teach at your home. I teach in English and French.

Music is an essential part of being human and the ability to play music is one of the best gifts you can offer yourself or your loved ones. Once you can play an instrument, you can produce music for yourself or others for the rest of your life.

As well as a skill in itself, playing an instrument has been shown to improve brain development and wellbeing. 

It is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving !
