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.
