Recorder, flute and piano lessons, from medieval to contemporary music for all ages

“An exciting and versatile young recorder player, committed to pushing the boundaries of his instrument” (Erik Bosgraaf, 2021)

Hello!

I am a professional recorder and flute player with a passion for both early and contemporary music, offering lessons on the recorder, flute, piano and in music theory in the Amsterdam area and online.

I graduated from a Masters in recorder at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam Cum Laude, with a scholarship from The Countess of Munster Musical Trust. Previously, I graduated from the Royal College of Music London with a First- Class Joint Honours Bachelor’s degree in Flute and Recorder. In 2021 I was a finalist for the Moeck/SRP recorder competition as part of the London Early Music Festival.

I am an encouraging and dedicated teacher who believes that effective practice, rather than talent, is at the heart of any musical development. I share my expertise in how to practice well, varying your approach to make different connections rather than just repeating things - this also helps to keep practice interesting! I am also keen to help each student find their own voice and expression through music, tailoring lessons to each students needs and goals.

I have specialist knowledge of medieval, renaissance and baroque music, and can help students to develop skills in historical performance and ornamentation/improvisation.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

About Me

Daniel is a recorder and flute player with a passion for both early and contemporary music. “An exciting and versatile young recorder player, committed to pushing the boundaries of his instrument” (Erik Bosgraaf, 2021), Daniel is pursuing his own musical voice in myriad fields from renaissance consort music to contemporary music theatre productions. Daniel has just graduated from his Masters in recorder at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam for which he was awarded a scholarship from The Countess of Munster Musical Trust. Previously, he graduated from the Royal College of Music London with a First-Class Joint Honours Bachelor’s degree in Flute and Recorder.
Since 2019 Daniel has been a member of The Royal Wind Music, performing concerts across Europe and making appearances on Dutch and German TV and Radio. The group is a recorder double quintet and performs exciting new programs of renaissance music, completely from memory. Their latest programme is a celebration of the Dutch composer J. P. Sweelinck and will be premiered in October 2021. As a soloist, Daniel has researched and presented his own unique programs at the Open Recorder Days Amsterdam Fringe and in the Amsterdam concert series Les Goûts Réunis. He has also been selected as a finalist for the Moeck/SRP Recorder Competition, which will take place in November 2021.
In February 2020 together with Emily Bannister, Anastasia Terranova and Verena Barie, Daniel won Amsterdam’s Grachten Festival prize in the cross-over category for their music theatre performance that fused renaissance and electronic music, The Eternal Feminine. The performances are taking place in the fall of 2021 and are funded by the Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst. Daniel’s playing is also featured in the recently released blockbuster film, The Green Knight, by director David Lowery. With his recorder quintet Five Spice, Daniel has performed in the Utrecht Early Music Fringe, Leipzig International Chamber Music Academy and the Uitmarkt Festival in Amsterdam as well as a tour in Denmark and Austria. Daniel has participated in recorder masterclasses with Pierre Hamon, Maurice Steger, Michael Form, Dorothee Oberlinger, Walter van Hauwe, and Paul Leenhouts.

Hello! I am pleased to be offering piano lessons to beginner and intermediate level students! Alongside the technicalities of playing the instrument, I have a broad knowledge of different genres of music. If you are interested in writing your own music that is wonderful! I will be delighted to give you all the skills you need. We can begin with any genre of music from the first lesson. Knowledge of how to read sheet music is not necessary for beginners.

Singing Lessons / Recorder (Blokfluit) lessons for all ages
I am a singer studying in the Utrecht Conservatorium and recorder player graduated from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (2020). I can teach you recorder and singing and adapt to your tastes and needs. For both instruments, I focus, as a teacher and performer, on a healthy, joyful and technically skilled way of playing and singing. With my students, I focus not only on the instrument sound production, but also on body posture, relaxation and organic movement. An happy and relaxed body produces a beautiful, natural and relaxed sound. What music style would you like to learn? Would you like to play folk music, to sing pop songs or walk through a more classical path? I have experience in different areas, having sang and played folk and jazz music and also having classically trained for many years. I can also help you with music theory, from the basic introduction to music to advanced solfeggi and rhythms. I graduated in Musicology and studied Music Pedagogy in Portugal before moving to Amsterdam. For little children, I can also combine the playing of the instrument with more didactic activities mixed with body movement and dance! I have several years of teaching experience both with adults and children, in group or an individual setting. And the most important of all, is that you fall in love with music, all kinds of music, and have loads of fun in the process!
