About Me

About

Hi, my name is Maja Benevrkic and I am very passionate contemporary artist/musician. I have finished my education here in England on De Montfort University getting my Bachelor’s in Arts, however, prior to that I have lived and studied in Croatia where I received most of my musical education. I can offer private tuition for Violin, Viola, Guitar, Piano, Music Theory, Composition and Singing for £35 per hour. (Lessons paid for in advance.)

Your current knowledge of music can be at any level. Are you someone without any previous knowledge of music who wants to learn and explore it more? Or are you an experienced musician who wants to boost your knowledge of music to even higher level? Or are you someone who is seriously preparing for auditions to enter music academy? I’d be happy to take all of you on. Since I was very engaged in classical music community for the past 15 years, my music base is mainly rooted in classical music. However, using that knowledge I was able to expand to every style and can explain every music genre and technique. I can confidently teach you how to read and write sheet music, site read, improvise, transcribe pieces of music or write your own music arrangements. Furthermore, if you want to record your own songs, I can teach you how to properly record an edit it in programmes such as GarageBand.

How I teach… My method of teaching varies from person to person I teach. The first step I take is finding where my students interests lie because that is the firmest base to build up on. Once I understand my student better I find as many correlations between their main interest and the subject I’m teaching. Pulling strings between the two peaks their interest more and they have less trouble with paying attention to the subject (or at least that’s what my experience of helping my friends during school years thought me.) I like to adapt the speed to the one that my student is most comfortable with because I believe that anyone can learn anything, but the only difference is the speed we are able to learn/understand it and I am ready to prove that claim. Since I have my Bachelor’s in Performing Arts I’m more than used to seeing the same concept through many different lenses, so let’s find a new way to see music through your lens.

Maja is a wonderful teacher. I have been looking to fill in the gaps in my music theory knowledge and expand on genres and she is helping me progress this amazingly so far. I would recommend her to anyone.
