Lígia is a flutist and saxophonist, with professional experience in classical and jazz music.  Graduate in classical flute and jazz saxophone, she studied in Portugal (ESMAE) and Belgium (Antwerp Conservatorium). With a master degree in musical education, she has been teaching kids and adults for the last 10 years.  Along with a career in performance, she has done some original compositions exploring a mix of the jazz and classical genres. At the moment she is starting a PhD about the effects of music on our time perception.

I've been working as a music teacher for the past 10 years, both in public artistic schools and in private lessons. 

Every student is unique so I focus on following each student´s needs, personal goals and preferences. I'm used to students of all ages and backgrounds and I'm happy to learn with every new student.

For me being a musician means beings able to listen, read scores, improvise, transpose, create. So I like to include some ear training and creative exercises besides the traditional approach of reading and working on songs. 

When I teach young kids I like the parents to be engaged and watch the lessons whenever they can. The parents will help me understand the child's needs and personality and also give me their own expectations on their musical education. The parents are also very important in the weekly practice at home!

Many of my students have pursued their musical careers in local wind or jazz  bands and some have moved to professional music schools. Some go to college in other areas and then return as young adults wanting to play again and live the joy of music in a whole new perspective.

Here at lessonface I've found both the young beginner and the adult who once played and want to get their music going on again.

I'm happy to help them both!
