Each of us carries a melody within that wants to express itself during life.

Wikipedia (German): "Melodies arise from a sequence of tones and, where applicable, pauses within a timed framework (rhythm, meter and tempo, often embedded in bars)"

Life consists of stages and phases, creative moments, and intermissions, sometimes the pace goes faster, and sometimes slower.

@melody, our goal is to help you and your children develop your inner melody by learning different skills, from musical instruments to cooking. Learning how to produce pleasent sound, how you can have fun in the kitchen, or how to create a beautiful work of art with which you can give joy to others.

Learning new things increases your self-confidence.

Wikipedia (German): "Playing several tones at the same time (chords), each with a different pitch, gives rise to polyphony; harmony comes from the relationship between tones."

If we are in tune with our talents and take the time to do what we enjoy, we also live in greater harmony with our fellow human beings.

The Founder

My name is Nadya Canahuati-Jahnel, I am a violinist and a violin and piano teacher. My passion is to help children and adults to develop their musical and other creative talents and to develop new interests.

I received my educational training from Mimi Zweig, the founder and director of the String Academy at Indiana University Bloomington, USA. In 2003, I started teaching at the Béla Bartók music school in Berlin. Since then my students have been regular winners of the "Jugend musiziert" competition and have also won prizes at the international Paul Hindemith competition.

As a child I received my first violin and piano lessons in my hometown San Pedro Sula in Honduras at the music school "Victoriano López". Through early success in concerts and competitions, I found numerous sponsors who funded my studies in the USA, first at Florida University Tallahassee with Eliot Chapo and Karen Clarke, where I did my Bachelor of Music summa cum laude, and finally at Indiana University Bloomington, where I completed a perfomer diploma as a student of Franco Gulli and my Master of Music as a student of Ilya Kaler and Mauricio Fuks.

The Cellist

My name is Hans-Georg Dill. As a child I went to early musical education and after that I really wanted to learn the recorder, but then a very experienced music teacher said to me: "You are a cellist type!" It soon turned out that she was right.

I love playing the cello, whether only with piano, in chamber music groups, or in a large orchestra. So far I have been able to play with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the Dresden Philharmony, the Berlin State Opera, the Radio Symphony Orchestra Berlin, the orchestras of the Berlin Comic Opera and Deutsche Oper Berlin, as well as the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra. Chamber music is an important part of my musical life, in collaboration with various ensembles. I studied music in Leipzig and Dresden with Prof. Jürnjakob Timm and Prof. Jan Vogler. I also studied chamber music at the Weimar University of Music.

I really enjoy working with children. And when I still find time besides music and family, I like to go climbing and high-alpine mountaineering.

The Pianist

My name is Yulia Semenova. I was born in 1986 in Leningrad, Russia (now St. Petersburg). I am a pianist, répétiteur, song accompanist and piano teacher with many years of teaching experience.

I studied in Russia, Israel (B.Mus/M.Mus piano solo, pedagogy) and Germany (B.Mus accompaniment for singers). Since 2014 I have been teaching in Berlin.

In 2020 I graduated from the program “Early Education for Children through Art” in Moscow.

The Singer

My name is Uta Runne. I'm passionate about singing and teaching, whether it's Classical music, Jazz or Pop. One of my favorite genres is the opera. In addition to singing, I also play the flute.

After completing my studies in flute, classical voice and Jazz singing at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts, I worked in New York City with vocal educators Donna and Cornelius Reid and Jazz musicians Bob Stoloff and Gene Bertoncini. After that I planned and organized cross-over solo concerts with Classical and Jazz vocal music.

In the field of opera, I sang the roles of Dorabella in Mozart's "Così fan tutte" as well as Papagena and the Third Lady in "Magic Flute". I played Suzuki in Puccini's opera "Madame Butterfly" and Dido in Purcell's "Dido and Aeneas".

Since the summer of 2015 I have been involved in the Bayreuth Festival Choir in the first alto and have been taking on individual roles in smaller ensembles.

In the field of oratorio, my focus is on Baroque singing. In addition to my work as an opera and concert singer, I dedicate myself to lieder and French vocal literature.

In 2010 I was a finalist in Rome in the international competition for sacred music "Concorsomusicasacra" with pieces from the Baroque, Romantic and Modern eras. After that I made my debut at the Konzerthaus Berlin with Michael Tippett's "A Child Of Our Time".

The Cook

My name is Rainer Goerling. I'm a private chef with heart and soul who loves teaching young and old how to easily prepare quick and fresh meals and create true harmony with fresh products.

I have 34 years of professional experience in the hotel and catering sector. I was the head of the GVL catering service, chef de party at the ARAMARK GmbH training hotel of the DKB Bank in Liebenberg and chef de party at the Opernpalais "Unter den Linden", instructor at the training restaurant for restaurant and hospitlity industry specialists, and project manager at Kietz for Kids GmbH.

Today I'm passionate about passing on my knowledge to young people in order to support their health and well-being through good nutrition and enjoyment of cooking.
