Coaching

‘I have known Gisela for three years as a teacher. I first met her when I was doing a Music Foundation course at City Lit. I really got to know her when she took over running the choir, when another teacher was off sick. I really enjoyed her lessons, as she was thorough but also fun to work with, she has a great sense of humour!
Most importantly, when I started private singing lessons with her, she pushed me to heights I never thought I could achieve. Make no mistake, Gisela will get the best out of you!’   Jayne Larnie

 

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to send the YouTube links to help understanding and recognising note values.

And thank you for your nice words – well, if I am making progress it’s thanks to having such an outstanding and nice teacher, you are very good at putting me at my ease.

Very best Jeremy

 

TEACHING AND COACHING

 

 

Gisela is a passionate teacher and keen to explore the best possible way of getting the best out of her students. “Teaching is an enriching experience, often prompting reflection on my playing or singing that has in turn helped me perform better. I see it as a means of adding to a ‘box of tools’, adding and refining. I have been teaching for 30 years and can attest to the fact that we never stop learning new things, whether teaching, or receiving tuition.”

 

Gisela teaches privately, and also for the City and Islington College (cello, occasionally piano and vocal coaching).

She is tutor for Piano, Singing and Chamber music at the City Lit Institute, where she also deputises for cello classes of all levels.
