Passion for imparting and sharing knowledge.

Teaching is a vocation I discovered early in life. My gift and my passion are definitely linked to imparting and sharing knowledge and beauty. More generally communicating, be it teaching, playing, reading poetry or writing books. I have taught flute since 1986 to students of all ages. I also teach piano, Portuguese and maths, mathematics being my first love (and my first university degree). My focus is on the particular needs of each student adapting my methods, if need be, to more efficiently achieve the desired goals. My communication skills extend to languages and I am able to teach in English, Portuguese, French, Spanish and Italian.

Flute Teacher

I was fifteen years old when I met António Marques. He was my first flute teacher at the Academia de Amadores de Música, the second oldest and emblematic music school in Lisbon. He is a very enthusiastic person and a great musician, who provided me with solid study methodologies and helped me develop my intrinsic motivation to pursue my goals on the flute. He is also a very sensitive person always focused on individual needs and preferences. He managed to keep me highly motivated by choosing studies and pieces that he, somehow, knew would sustain my dedication and interest. He not only introduced me to the basic flute techniques, but also to the music of many musicians that I follow since then. I have been a professional flutist for fifteen years and I will always be grateful to António Marques for all the things he taught me as a person and as a musician. A successful musicologist, his research and publications are a relevant scientific contribution to present day knowledge about Portuguese music. If you are looking for a qualified, but also flexible and passionate flute teacher, António is the right person!

I do highly recommend Antonio as a music instrument teacher, as soloist in chamber music groups and, as a choir member.

He was my student in chorus class at the Lisbon National Conservatory of Music, was a member of the chamber choir that I direct for many years where he had proven his musicality, professionalism and dedication.

As a person, I can vouch for his integrity and honesty, having known him for more than twenty years.

He will definitely be an asset for any tutorial position that he undertakes.

I am at your disposal for any additional information that you require!

What a fine teacher and musician

We were very impressed with Antonio from the very first lesson our son (6 year old) had with him. Our son is a very energetic boy, it is not easy to get him focused. But Antonio has a knack for working with children, he can engage with them and quickily build the real connection. Also, after one lesson, Antonio already understood where our son's advantages, areas need to improve and his individual needs, which makes him a fine teacher not just another one of others... Afterall, it is one of reasons we choose private tution, isn't it? -- not a 'one size fits all approach, but designed to suit individually.

We feel very lucky that we now found Antonio, we would love to see our son having lessons with him as long as time allows. We feel that Anotnio not only can help our son on his piano but also can nurture his love for music which really means more to us than anything else.
Subject:
Piano (Beginner)
Outcome:
It has been three lessons only, but the improvement on our son's piano learning is obvious.
