About Romana Tivadar, Piano Lessons, Music Theory, Accompaniments

I have more than 20 years of experience in teaching piano from age 6 to 85. I have thought music theory or giving piano accompaniments both for instruments or dancing groups. I come from Slovenia and from October 2019, I live in Scotland which makes me very happy. I want to contribute somehow to this beautiful country and its residents to spread joy and music from our hearts to everyone who wants to enjoy music in good and bad days. Welcome!

MATEJ L.'s review on Jun 01, 2020

My collaboration with Romana (Tivadar) took place in the context of a BA study program of Eurythmy, a contemporary movement-based performing art. Over at least three years (up to 2017/18), Romana used to regularly accompany our group of seven students / artists on a nearly daily basis (i.e. at least 4 times a week) with a broad repertoire including short (miniatures) and longer (sonatas) pieces from a broad range of historical periods in music (from Renaissance over Classical, up to 20th Century and Contemporary). Romana's engagements included practice, rehearsals, and international stage performances. Overall, I can describe our mutual work as excellent, with Romana's contribution providing a key element of our success. Performing arts are about personal relationship between the involved. Romana excelled in many aspects of it: she showed an extremely elaborate and refined approach to music, combined with high-level work ethics and professionalism. Not only was she able to sightplay materials presented to her, she also proved to be an astounding educator at times when we, the dancers, needed support in musical theory. I can only recommend Romana for any further engagements!

Dear Matej, thank you for your review. Working with Eurythmy group as well as with you as an indiviual gave me a lot of new experiences. Accompaniement for dancing group was something new though I made many accompaniments with other instruments before. I learned much about movement as well as about Eurythmy as body and soul language and of course every minute we were together as one. It was my pleasure to support your idea, Steiner's psychological approach to every living being which gave me new horizon for opening heart to everything pure and good around us. Your capability of expressing yourself through music has tremendous potential so I hope that you and the rest of your group will spread this idea further, not only in Maribor or Slovenia, but also to the world. I wish you all the best.

Monika O.'s review on Mar 25, 2020

I meet Romana Tivadar on my 3rd year of Eurythmy training (organized by Stoimena Eurhythmy Society Zagreb - under Eurythmeum Stuttgart). We were looking a piano player who could accompany our curriculum in tone eurythmy and support us in music theory as well working on solos and group pieces for our graduation in eurythmy.  Miss Tivada was the right person for us. She was always on time to start the class and when she started playing our pieces  (Handel, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Ukmar ...) our Souls start singing. She was always supportive, kind and professional. Her rich knowledge of music theory and a great filling of  Inner insight of music pieces gave me hope to finish my training in eurythmy. It was always joy and pleasure working with her, when she was explaining music theory to me, she was clear, supportive and always looking new ways to explain, so I could really understand. She gave me the courage and confidence with her profound filling of music. Miss Tivadar was playing the piano for more than 10 solos and whole evening program on our graduation exam in Eurythmuem Stuttgart in 2017. We all succeeded with her support.

My dear Monika, working with you was pure pleasure since you did everything from the bottom of your heart even when it was hard for you or you were uncertain. Your inner passion is leading your heart and you just listen to your heart and maybe we will be together on the stage in some theatre somewhere in UK again, who knows? <3 Your willingness to learn something you never knew before was a deep motivation and inspiration for me as well. Never give up and always listen to your heart, right? All the best and hope to see you again one day <3

Team B.'s review on Mar 21, 2020

(This review was taken via Bidvine) Highly respected Mrs Romana was always making a creative and encouraging environment with her empathy on piano lessons. With her professional qualifications, she always adjusted her knowledge with the pupil's skills. In my dark time of illness she raised me up when we played her famous Black and white song for 4 hands which affected me therapeutically and even today, after so many years, I still can relive her colourfully played music. With best wishes, Lidija C.

Nada S.'s review on Mar 20, 2020

Moj mož se je začel učiti igranja na sontesizer pri 56 letih pri gospe Romani. Z njeno pomočjo in vztrajnim vadenjem je pridobil toliko znanj, da sedaj lahko igra po notah katerokoli skladbo. Gospa ga je znala s primernim vzpodbujanjem, potrpezljivostjo in natančnostjo naučiti teoretičnih ter praktičnih vedenj igranja na sintesizer, za kar ji je zelo hvaležen.

Gospa Nada in gospod Oto, hvala. Bila je prečudovita izkušnja in ostalo je veliko prelepih spominov ❤ Gospod Oto je bil marljiv učenec, ki se je potrpežljivo učil in dosegel prečudovite rezultate v teh nekaj letih. Toliko pesmi, toliko znanja, toliko neponovljivih spominov, ki nam jih ne more vzeti nihče, kajne?

Nusa M.'s review on Mar 20, 2020

Romana was my piano teacher when I was in primary school (10 years). Because of her I still love music - not just playing a piano, byt the whole "power" of music. Later I have also started to play a guitar and the music knowladge that Romana gave me was more than useful! She is a great teacher, she knows, how to motivate her students, she is positive and funny. I will always have beautiful memorries about our lessons!

Dear Nusa, after all those years I still remember how you start from the very musical beginning to all those songs you were able to play 4 years later. You gained so many skills just because music is your North star. And with that, my mission is done <3 All those beautiful memories with you and your sister Maja, so many years seems to be like yesterday. All those concerts where you were playing either Christmas songs or songs you like at the end of school year brings so many beautiful memories ... Later, you were playing guitar and accordeon and even cajon - so proud of you! So, thank you for your kind words and I'm wising you a lot of acceleratos in your life <3

Karolina Z.'s review on Mar 20, 2020

After several years of pause, I started learning the piano again. Romana Tivadar is a great teacher, she taught me a lot in a short time and she teaches very well. Romana Tivadar gave me a sense of music, taught me discipline in practicing, and gave me the feeling,that I could learn any song I wanted. It meant a lot to me. She is reliable, determined and professional in her work. Even now, when I can no longer attend piano lessons with her because of moving to another country, I follow her directions. I would recommend anyone learning a piano or synthesizer at Romana.

Dear Karolina, thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pure pleasure and beyond to meat you and teach you. Teaching lessons were usually full of joy, because you were so eager pupil. I was so proud of you when you overcome your fear of playing in public, because I saw pure happiness on listeners faces and that is all it counts <3 I could close my eyes and listen to your warm and tender playing! And I'm still very proud that you didn't stop playing and that you still send me some video where I can see your progression. And I still close my eyes and your music is getting me somewhere far away ... Music is love, isn't it? <3

Zala H.'s review on Mar 20, 2020

My experience with Romana was very good and memorable. I needed some music theory lessons as well as piano instructions because there was such poor explanation at school. After few lessons with Romana my grades rised up and I was so happy about it! Some of the lessons were made through the telephone, because she can hear the tones and rhythm so well and she also developed some kind of system for checking theory homework sheets she gave me to improve my knowledge! Romana gave so much efford into my music lessons with her high quality instructions so I'm very grateful for that. Unfortunatelly she moved out from Slovenia but her heart is in music, so lucky the one who will chose her for a piano or music theory teacher.

Dear Zala, thank you so much for your review. Your curiousity for piano and music theory made my teaching so much easier. Your homeworks were always spotless and done in time as it was expected. I wish that one day you will find time to learn piano even more as this is your wish as well neyt to maintain your beautiful horses. Stay well and I wish you all the luck! If you need me for phone lessons for block flute, call me <3

Maja M.'s review on Mar 19, 2020

Romana was my piano teacher as I was a kid. She introduced me to the world of music from the point of view I could never imagine. She always gave importance to enjoying the sound of music and made me love the piano. Her main moto was "practise makes perfect". She assigned me a weekly schedule for practise so that I could fit it into my busy school schedule. I was always excited to go to her piano class because she used game as a way of teaching piano and I had lots of fun. Moreover, she always used compliments to motivate me and was always happy for my success. Every Christmas she even organized mini concerts where her students could show off with their piano skills. Overall, she was the best piano teacher I could ever think of and I would highly reccomend her to anyone who wants to gain the love of music. With Romana, the piano will definitely find its way to your heart <3

Thank you, Maja. You were little girl hiding behind your Mom's legs <3 But I gained your trust very quickly and you were an excellent pupil - hard working and fun to have lessons with. Yes, those memories will remain in my heart also thanks to your father, who made all those beautiful memories kept on CD (yes, I'm an old fashioned lady :) I'm very proud that time to time you still find your time to play a piano, which gives me to trust that what I am doing is right to do. Your curiousity and happy nature made me happy everytime you came on piano lessons. Thank you for your kind review.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
Piano lessons usually needs more than few hours, that is why I can support you decision for playing with additional discount. And I guarantee that you will get all I can give you for your money. You will be a happy customer who will be happy to sit in front of the piano and play.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
My long time experiences shows me that good bond and trust with lots of laughter and spontaneity can bring qreat and really nice results and therefore quality lessons. For me it is a great achievement and pleasure if customer can open to me and slowly I can build that trust with giving all I know about music to someone else. Sparkles in the eye are most important and this is my thrive. Of course all starts with talk so I want to know more about the customer - about the previous knowledge, goals they have, special wishes or some kind of time limit (someones birthday or celebration etc) and also what they want to achieve with playing, Some of the pupils were happy to play when they are sad or lonely, others wanted to show their knowledge to others, I had one 81 years old lady who wanted to record a CD for friends :) So what is your main goal? You wish is my command <3
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
All you have to do is to come and contact me. I will be your personal trainer, motivator and music guru. And you will not regret it. But because no magician can not work alone, all you can do is to stay in touch with keyboards as I will instruct you. Easy isn´t it?
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
My advice is to take the one you can trust. You have to feel comfortable and relaxed during your lessons. It is all about fun and joy combining with some work (of course it is always some work involved isn´t it?)
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
My suggestion is start with your goals and wishes, not with your restrictions. A good teacher will know where to start and which song to choose for you (of course it has to be the one you like as well). So me, as a teacher, want to know: 1. Is there some special song you want to learn? There is absolutely NO LIMITS to learn it! It will maybe be customized to you, but still everyone will know which song are you playing. 2. Is there any other goals you have like time limits because it is some special occasion in which you want to play something? 3. Everything that comes to your mind is something I will try to answer the best I can.
What are some good examples of past customers?
i had one 79 years old lady, she never played a piano before. After few months she could read the music and play with both hands. After 8 months she was playing songs she wanted to play. She was playing for few years and actually she hired a studio and recorded songs she knew for her friends. Songs were not very hard, but not simple as well. She was my hero and idol, because she was 81 in that time! Many people came to learn piano or keyboards when they retire because they had money to buy an instrument and also time to play. After many many years they are still playing songs they like because i tought them how to be independent in reading notes and playing. I am proud <3 I had an authistic boy who's passion was music and it makes me so grateful that after 1st hour he was sitting in my lap and he was listening to what I play. I was teaching him with special autisthic programm for piano with colourful rubber band on his fingers and it gave me a lot of pleasure and new knowledge after he was able to read music under his term of course. He is still playing in Slovenia where I come from and we are still in touch.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
I am also playing piano so I made piano accompaniment for eurythmy group. In 4 years they succesfully completed Bachelor’s degree program in Eurythmeum Stuttgart Germany, so all 4 years we had many concerts in European countries like Slovenia (Maribor, Ljubljana), Croatia (Zagreb) and Germany (Stuttgart, Görwihl). Last concert was held for 250 people in National Theatre in Maribor.
How did you first get into this line of work?
My passions for giving love for music starts after my high school (many many years ago:)) when I discovered that I have that affinity for giving my knowledge to others. It's not about being Mozart, it is about having music in your heart.
