Glad to see you on my personal website!
Let me introduce myself. My name is Dmitry Kotleev. I have various interests - I am a musician and composer, music teacher, IT specialist and father of five wonderful children. Music is what drives and inspires me most of all – I believe you are keen on music too - that is why everything here is about music.
Guitar and piano are my two main instruments. I have been playing the guitar over than 22 years and as to the piano it is even more. I am a practicing musician performing on different events around Sydney. I have more than 6 year experience of music teaching in Sydney in the forms of both traditional face-to-face and online teaching. Indeed, I am keen on teaching. I know how to explain complex concepts in an easy-to-understand language and how to inspire students. You can find some feedback from my students and their parents here.
I teach students of all ages and grades. Even some families in whole are among my students! During the lessons I teach correct technique, posture and hand shaping. I convey all the necessary knowledge on music theory and sight reading. My lessons help in developing the sense of rhythm, musical hearing, concentration and much more. If you like, I can prepare you or your child to AMEB or ABRSM exams or we can practice for enjoyment.
Apart from music teaching, I am a musical director and an actor in DK Theatre, Sydney. As a musician and a singer, I work with other professional singers in joint projects. From time to time, I am invited to different art competitions as a jury. Also, in my free time (if it happens) I enjoy creating musical videos and share them with everyone on Youtube and Facebook.
So, do not hesitate to contact me! I’ll be delighted to see you online or personally!
