Ozan Ömer Küçük
I am a classical pianist and a piano teacher who is teaching in areas such as classical piano repertory and technique; classical music theory, history and harmony; ear training; and ABRSM exam preparations. Along with primary focus on advanced level piano teaching to children from a very young age, I am highly experienced and willing to teach how to play the piano to anyone of any ages at any level. As a piano teacher, I devoted myself to incorporating technical and musical knowledge with passion and empathy, embracing positive, supportive attitude, planning the learning path based on individual needs and capabilities, and thus creating an ideal environment for the pupil to learn. With more than 10 years of experience in piano tutoring, I have been teaching students of all ages, from beginners to conservatory students, enthusiasts looking for a new hobby, and determined grade exam certificate collectors. I have received my undergraduate degree in Mimar Sinan University State Conservatory, piano department with pianist Zeynep Yamanturk. Soon after, I earned my master’s degree in Istanbul Technical University Center for Advanced Music Studies (MIAM) with legendary state artist Aysegul Sarica. I am currently working on my PhD thesis. I am specifically interested in performance styles of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. As a performer, I have enjoyed being on stage for solo recitals, chamber music concerts, accompanying a soloist and as the pianist of Istanbul Film Music Orchestra. My repertoire ranges from early baroque (eg. Scarlatti) to contemporary (eg. Cage, Pärt, Jolivet).
