My name is Maëlle, I am a classical pianist, lyrical singer, songwriter, and music teacher, with a Bachelor of Music from Concordia University, Montreal. I find it essential to feel and connect with the pieces in order to have a unique interpretation, so my goal is to help students use the piano as a tool to find their "voice" and express themselves. Singing, composition and body relaxation also play an important part in my approach to learning the piano. I hope to transmit my passion of the beautiful gift that is music to everyone who comes learn and play with me!

I am Rita, clarinet player and music teacher. I’ve studied in Lisbon’s National Conservatory and later I moved to Amsterdam, where I concluded both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in music making.  I’ve played in symphony orchestras, ensembles, from jazz to classical, in Portugal and throughout Europe. Currently, I teach clarinet, musical education and musical expression to kids and grown-ups.

I believe music should be accessible to everyone and that music is everywhere. It happens in everyday life, mostly outside of the music classroom. 

I see music as an organic part of life- we just need to open our ears! - and my intent as a teacher is to pass that onto every student.

It all started with the recording of a laugh on a CD, "the most evil laugh you can do in the world!" - said the father and music producer Fernando Caneca to his 6-year-old son, who would come running home from school every day towards the family studio. Felipe Caneca, the boy who never took his feet off the studio, became a popular music composer, pianist and accordionist, and has been teaching classes for students of various ages for 5 years, seeking to pass on the same experience of self-discovery and fun that was the development of musical learning throughout his life. He had particular lessons with great brazilian musicians such as Maria Teresa Madeira and Marcelo Caldi, and approaches this year the conclusion of his first graduation in Jazz and Modern Music, at the Lisbon Lusíada University.
