Piano performance & Music therapy

Hello! My name is Celia. I’m from Spain and I’m currently studying Music Therapy at the Rotterdam conservatory.

I obtained my bachelor diploma in piano performance in 2016.

I have performed concerts as a soloist, in duet with other pianists and in bigger ensembles/orchestras.

Since I moved to the Netherlands, I’m also part of a music trio where we perform pop, jazz, arrangements and compositions from our singer.  All these experiences together give me for sure a big capacity of working repertoire and understand the different needs of my students as a teacher! 🙂

As I’m in education as a therapist, I also use all my knowledge in combination with Music Therapy skills with all my students and specially with people who demand a different experience during a music lesson.  Free and guided improvisations, active play, and receptive music therapy are some of the techniques I currently use.

Music Therapy techniques allow you to play music without any knowledge of theory, so it’s very useful when in the middle of the lesson you need a break or when you just need to connect with yourself, for example. You can always have a trial session if Music Therapy triggers your curiosity 😉

Learn & explore

During more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I have worked all kind of people: children, adults, people with disabilities, families… I’m quite flexible and able to adapt my way of teaching to the circumstances!

I like to work individually and in groups. Each way has its own advantages!

In my lessons I use all methods I could experiment myself among my piano career; I’m also always open for new knowledge, repertoire and ways of working that my students may propose me. It’s fascinating how I never stop learning new repertoire and kinds of music thanks to my students!!

I try to offer it in a different way for every student according to their needs, with creativity and a relaxed ambience where the student can learn and explore. Each person has his/her own rhythm… which in my opinion is very important to respect.

I also work with music theory, explaining concepts to my students from the pieces we play. It’s effective, instructive and much more motivating 🙂

In my lessons we can work on classical, jazz, pop, arrangements, 4-hands piano music, improvisation and much more!

Happiness

Music needs a bit of commitment. It’s like a plant: a bit of water everyday, is much better than a lot of water just one day per week! However, every plant is different, and at the end, the important thing is that you feel happy and motivated during your learning process. This is also important for me, so for sure I always try my best to help my students in that aspect. The enjoyment of music (and everything) makes you learn much faster, don’t you think?

Feel free to ask any kind of question!
