Teacher

I am a piano and music group teacher from Bangkok, Thailand, teaching children and adults alike. 

 
I hold a Bachelor Degree in Western Music (majoring in piano performance), and a Master Degree in Non-formal Education. 
 
With 13 years of work experience in the field of Music, I worked for a university, many music schools, and also worked as an independent 7 days a week. I would say that Music is my life!
 
In 2012 I moved to Geneva with my husband. After 9 months learning French I began my work as a piano teacher until I found Music Together in Geneva Center, and had an opportunity to become involved in a teacher training program. Everyday I enter the classes I feel so happy and excited!

Hi my name is Ceri.

I am a professional musician from England. I moved to Geneva last year and was lucky enough to find the Music Together® family. I have a degree in Jazz Guitar from the Royal Welsh college and a diploma in popular music from Guitar X London. I record and compose my own music and have recently made my first EP. I have always been involved in music in one way or another and now I am thrilled to be able to pass on my enthusiasm for music to the families of Music Together.

Teacher

I come from Slovakia. I am translator of English and Russian. Music made always part of my life. In my home town in Slovakia I studied Slovak and Hungarian traditional music but mainly I learned traveling all around the world.

In the year of 2000, I came to Geneva and I studied 4 years at HEAD, Geneva School of Art and Design, where I enjoyed working with sounds. Little by little I realized that music was the most important project in my life and I put now all my energies into it.

I may say that I am a multi-instrumentalist musician playing guitar, harmonica, flutes, percussion and I sing.

When my son was born I strongly felt the motivation to share and introduce the music to the children. That’s the reason why I happily joined Music Together Team in Geneva.
