Hi! My name is Danai Karotseri. I am currently doing my Master in Piano Performance at HKU and I have a Degree in Composition. I fell in love with music in an early age. My mother is a Classical pianist, so I started playing the piano at the age of six. I have been giving piano lessons to students of all ages and levels for almost 10 years. Learning the Piano can be fun, especially when it is designed to meet your individual needs. Based on your specific background and knowledge we will create together a course with the music you love, as well as music theory and technique to help you achieve your goals and express yourself throw music.
If you want to start playing the piano, and you have no past experience, that’s no problem. During the lessons you will learn posture, technique, side reading and the basic theory you need to be able to understand and play music. I like to start with some warm-ups and some piano exercises and pieces I find necessary for your development. After that I always like to dedicate time to teach the music you would like to play and expresses you. If you like to play pieces and songs that are not in your level yet, I will make arrangements that suit your playing level , so you can enjoy the music you love.
If you are already learning the piano we will create together a program that suits you, and we will work on and give attention to the parts that will make you better and stronger.With hard work, discipline and willing to learn you will develop in an excellent pianist and I will support you throughout this journey.
If you want a deeper understanding of Music, we can start with Theory and Harmony lessons, and according to your desires we can also have Counterpoint and Fugue lessons and finally reach the Composition level, were you will learn the techniques and tools you need to write your own music from a solo instrument to an orchestral piece. These lessons will consist also orchestration courses, learning the features and abilities of every instrument and how to write them in music notation programmes.
I am also giving the necessary lessons to prepare for entrance exams in a Conservatory .
At last, we can also have online lessons.
