Music Lessons (Jazz & Modern Guitar, Jazz Music, General Theory, Ear & Rhythmic Training) from a Graduated. Also ONLINE
Jazz & Modern Music Lessons in Amsterdam and ONLINE. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you’re passionate about music and would like to develop musical skills of your own, I can help. I am a graduate musician who can teach students of all levels. Some topics that I cover are, jazz and modern guitar, music theory, jazz improvisation and theory (any instrument), ear training and jazz/pop/hip-hop composition and arrangement. I can also teach piano for beginners. I cover a range of styles from jazz to other modern styles like Bossa Nova, Samba, Funk, Rock and Groove music. With ten years of experience in studying, practicing and playing, I have come to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is to develop your musical ear. This is done by the process of to transcribing and singing. I believe that music is like speaking a language so I start with teaching you how to connect your voice to your instrument. In accordance with your rhythm in the learning process, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, and how to compose your own melodies and improvise. I was born in 1997 in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain). At the age of 4 I started studying classical guitar at 10 years old I took a keen interest in modern music and jazz. I am currently based in Amsterdam, where I am studying a Masters Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously I studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), where I completed my bachelor's degree. I have studied and learned from great musicians and teachers such as Jesse van Ruller, Rob Van Bavel, Reinier Baas, Jaume Llombart, Maarten Van Der Grinten, Sanna Van Vilet, Dani Pérez, Eladio Reinón, Joan Monné, Enric Peinado, Albert Bover, David Xirgu, Gonzalo del Val and Santi Careta, among others. During my musical career I have been fortunate enough to play with renowned musicians such as Bill McHenry, Jasper Blom, Fèlix Rossy, Gianni Gagliardi, Jo Krause, Masa Kamaguchi, Horacio Fumero, Aldo Caviglia, Mario Rossy, Sanna Van Vliet, David Xirgu, Eladio Reinon, Rita Payés, Deejay Foster , Benet Palet, Deejay Foster, Julius Gawlik, Deejay Foster, Gonzalo del Val, Ian Cleaver, Txema Riera, Menno Daams, David Lucácks, Fernando Brox, Vicent Pèrez, Santi Colomer Serratosa, Juan Pablo Balcazar, Magalí Datzira and Lucas Martínez. I have participated in masterclasses with international musicians such as Peter Bernstein, Jorge Rossy, Chick Corea, Bob Mintzer, Christian McBride, Kenny Barron, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Gary Burton, Ben Street, Lage Lund, Michael Kanan and Richard Bona. Furthermore, I have had the pleasure of playing at many festivals and clubs in Spain (Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival from Barcelona, ​​​​Festival de Jazz de Terrassa, Luz de Gas, Jamboree, Sala Barts, Auditori, Robadors23, Balius, Música as Parcs , Auditori del Liceu, Cercle del Liceu, Casa de Cultura de Girona, Keyboard Jazz Lounge, Cafè Metropol, Festival Internacional de Dixieland de Tarragona, Traviesa, MArt, Sala Zero, Gira Cicle Andajazz 2018, Clasijazz, CICUS Sevilla, Gran Teatro de Huelva , El Musicario, Rizoma Records), and in the Netherlands (GrachtenFestival, Intercontinental Hotel, NEMO Science, festival Otis Park, Stella by Starlight). I currently lead and play as a sideman in a number of bands such as Eladio Reinón & Joan Fort Quartet, Magalí Datzira & Joan Fort duo, Rita Payés & Joan Fort duo, LINE UP Quintet, Mar Vilaseca Group and Joan Fort Quintet.

Learn how to play violin in English, Portuguese and Spanish (suitable for all ages & abilities)
Hi! Originally from Madeira (Portugal), I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years. After graduating from Bachelor and Masters, both at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, I have decided to pursue my education in the teaching field, currently enrolled on a second master's degree, this time in teaching. In addition to already having a vast curriculum as a soloist or orchestral musician, I consider myself highly passionate about teaching, not only violin but also music theory. I have been very lucky to have had great teachers, who, in addition to have taught me the violin and the love for music, they have also shaped the person I am today. I can't find anything more rewarding than to share everything what I learned throughtout all these years!
