About Me

I am an energetic and positive person who loves making music. My passion is to be on stage playing and sharing music with others. I also enjoy teaching because I love the unique connection music does with human beings; it takes out the best of ourselves and in our hearts!!

I specialized in two instruments: saxophone and viola ( I can teach violin as well). I have 20+ years of teaching experience, I work with adults and children of all ages, from beginners to advanced levels. My extensive teaching experience and performing expertise have given me a vast range of methodologies ideal for adapting my teaching to the needs and pace of individual students. I am familiar with Trinity and ABRSM syllabus since 2011.

I also took additional courses in Basics on arrangements and composition (software MuseScore and Sibelius), Emotional Intelligence in Education and Stress, Management in Education, and Mindfulness. In the lessons, I incorporate the Alexander and Feldenkrais Techniques principles.

Reviews (5)

Very friendly, helpful and supportive! In just 2 lessons I have made so much progress.
Een hele leuke les gevolgd bij Estela. We waren met zijn tweeën. Viool en saxofoonles. Estela was professioneel en lette op kleine details. Ze had geduld en was vriendelijk. We hebben nu al zin in de komende lessen.
Mijn eerste vioolles bij Estela was erg fijn, ze is geduldig, lief en legt goed uit. Als ik weer een les ga volgen dan ga ik zeker weer bij haar boeken.
Estela is zeer aardig en kundig. In mijn eerste altvioolles sinds jaren had ze veel aandacht voor de juiste houding van het lichaam (schouders, armen) en van de hand en vingers, wat ik erg fijn vond, omdat er dan minder kans is op blessures op de langere duur. Ze is vrolijk, geduldig en vriendelijk en ik ga zeker nog meer lessen volgen.
Estella is a very positive, always happy teacher. Even though my son has been having on-line lessons with her, we can always feel her positive attitude during the lessons. She is very patient, gives lots of important tips and feedback, which has been helping him to guide his learning, improving in every aspect of it. We can see how much she care about the whole learning experience. It’s been very useful to expend his time while at home doing the lessons. He has been practicing more and has been feeling more motivated since he started the lessons with her. We definitely recommend her as a Saxophone teacher!

Ask a question

Send a message explaining your needs and Estela will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

violin lessons | playing and creating together 🎶🎻
Hello music enthusiasts! I believe that playing an instrument is a very unique gift and a great tool for developing concentration, expression and creativity. I would like to take an individual approach with everyone and make sure that the lessons are productive and above all creative, because that's the appeal of music, that we can be the creators of something very beautiful! I would like to cultivate interests to different styles and give space to build and help in the learning process, giving tools for developing technique and musicality, so that you will feel free expressing your interpretation and as well, I will try to give you motivation and inspiration. And last but not least, all levels and ages are welcome to join, I look forward to meet you and create with you!

Eduardo
Saxophone, Clarinet, Piano and Music Theory classes taught by graduates in Music Performance
Hi! My name is Eduardo, a professional musician and long-time music teacher. I am offering physical and online lessons in Music Theory, Improvisation and Instrument. #Harmony #Composition #Solfège #Saxophone #Clarinet #Piano Lessons are addressed to every student profile, regardless of age, level of expectations (no matter if it is seen as a hobby or rather if the individual is getting prepared for official Conservatory auditions, etc.). We will play and/or focus on what the student is willing to deepen into (whatever music style they are interested in, more theoretical aspects or rather practical ones), trying to get the maximum profit of the employed time, and prioritizing the actual learning of the person as the main factor for their motivation. I obtained my Jazz Music Master's program at the Prince Claus Conservatoire of Groningen in June 2022. Previously, in 2018, I graduated from my music Bachelor's at the Conservatorio Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona (Spain).

Sacha
Violin lessons for children (3-12), teenagers (12-18) and adults (18-70)
I am Sacha, a violinist with a strong passion for teaching. I was under the tutelage of the great violin pedagogue Mr. Mauricio Fuks in Indiana University (USA) for 3 consecutive years (2018-2021) becoming his teaching assistant for 2 years (2019-2021). Moreover, I have taught young violinists in Elementary Schools, (e.g. Fairview Elementary School) and also collegiate students in the Jacobs School of Music. In Spain, I have teaching experience in several music schools instructing violinists ranging from 3 to 70 years of age. I have also worked with ADHD and autistic students with a great passion for violin playing and music-making. Now, I am pursuing a master's in Violin Performance at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag, where I am violin teacher assistant in the Young Talent School. I have an excellent command of English, good working knowledge of French and basic German. Furthermore, I am currently learning Dutch. I based my teaching method on Suzuki and Galamian methods as well as my own experience. I also teach Music Theory and Solfège.

Travis
Violin and Viola Lessons in The Hague and Surrounding Area
I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced violin and viola lessons to all ages. My lessons are customized for each student’s personality, learning style, and abilities. I put a strong emphasis on developing instrumental technique and fundamentals. With a good foundation students are more easily able to express themselves in an imaginative way. I challenge my students with high standards in a learning environment that is fun and engaging. I believe that students learn best when they feel challenged, but also successful and confident about themselves. I am a detail-oriented and rigorous teacher but I find balance through patience and kindness. I maintain a keen awareness to pacing, interests, and motivation so that my students never get bored.

I'm 26 years old, and have BA and MA degrees in performing, MA degree in music education and I'm currently studying Historical Performance in the Royal Conservatory. I have experience in teaching different levels and age groups, from beginner children and grown-ups to advanced youngsters, age 5-55. It's a nice thing to help people get closer to an instrument and music, and be part of others' achievements!

Jasper
Viola, Violin, Music History and Theory Lessons in The Hague
I have been a performing Violist since 2000 and a dedicated teacher since 2010. I am currently studying Early Music at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and have recently graduated from The Juilliard School, where I was the proud recipient of a Kovner Fellowship. I have taught students from 12-63 in Texas, New York, Brazil, and Hungary. I believe that learning an instrument is a vehicle by which one may learn anything and that music is fundamental to our humanity. I believe one is never too young, or old, to learn, and I am committed to sharing music.
