I am an active pianist and percussionist, having graduated from Berklee College of Music, where I studied Performance and Film Scoring. At Berklee, I received the Berklee Outstanding Scholar Award and the Berklee Achievement Scholarship.
I have an extensive background in jazz, pop/rock, and Latin music, and I have been teaching children and adults from different backgrounds in the many different countries I've lived in.
*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is based on making the student feel comfortable. Whether we are working on technique, on improvisation, or on performance aspects, I make sure to connect the material to songs and musical styles that resonate with each individual student. In the end, the student gets a thorough music education but they never feel overwhelmed.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Yamaha Piano.
Acoustic and electric guitars.
Piano faculty. Private piano lessons and music theory classes.
A great and worthwhile experience.
Piano lessons with Joao Martins have been excellent. Joao is very patient and thorough when explaining things and puts a lot of effort into tailoring the lessons to suit my interests and ability. He is great at fostering a relaxed learning environment. On top of this, he is very knowledgeable about different types of music, music theory, and technique. I highly recommend Joao as a music teacher.
