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.

Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Saaya
Violin / Viola lesson for all levels in English, Spanish and Japanese
- Beginner, middle and advanced level, as well as preparation for entrance exams to Conservatory and support classes for official music schools. I also have experience in preparing ABRSM (British system) level exams, just let me know your goal and we will work towards that! - We will work on the technical skills putting the focus in observing the body, in order to build a healthy relationship with the instrument. You will learn also how to practice effectively to overcome the difficulties to master that music piece that you love. - The repertoire could be adaptable to your own taste, not only classical (jazz, tango, blues, soundtracks, etc). - If you love Chamber Music as much as I do, you are welcome to bring your own group to the lessons.

Improvise on Violin & Strings - Rethinking these instruments and their possibilities
The ability to improvise is not a natural skill that we are born with. It is an understandable chain of tools that can be learned and practiced into performance. Improvisation is something that requires discipline as much as freedom, and in fact, it stems from the understanding of sounds, the music's natural grammar. Violin is mostly seen as a melodic instrument but it can be otherwise. Outside of the classical world, rhythm reigns and the violin can be a leading rhythmical instrument too, providing solid grooves and accompaniments or challenging your fellow musicians with percussive sounds. Furthermore, to be proficient in specific styles, it is not enough to just play scales and patterns but it is necessary to learn the colors of the proper harmonical framework which is part of an idiom. In 10 years of teaching, I developed an approach that rethinks the function of fingerboard visualization allowing you to transpose in any key with great facility and to understand the logic behind the shapes of any chord on the fingerboard. In these lessons, I will help you to rethink the violin out of the box, as a powerful rhythmical and harmonical instrument while deepening your melodic ability (soloing) related to the styles you want to play: Jazz, Blues, Fusion, Pop, Rock, Brazilian, World Music. [According to the style we will also be working with loops and effects] This class is designed for musicians who already know the basics of violin techniques but addresses both beginner and advanced players in relation to the field of improvised music. The lessons will be custom made for each student. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player I will work to adapt to your learning rhythm while keeping you challenged at the same time. You will receive regular feedback, advice, and guidance and materials. Don't hesitate to contact me for more details!

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 base my teaching method on Suzuki and Galamian methods as well as my own experience. I also teach Music Theory and Solfège.

Violin and theory lessons for beginners and intermidate in any age
Would you like to learn some music? I’m a Master student at Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague. I come from Poland and I have been playing violin since 16 years. I have some experience with teaching both kids and adults. Music is my passion and I would like to share it with the others.

Petra
Violin or Piano lessons for all ages in The Hague.
I am a violin and piano teacher from Cape Town South Africa where I graduated with Honours in a Bachelor in violin performance from the University of Cape Town with distinction. Most recently I graduated from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (2021) with a Master's Degree in Music Education (specialising in violin). I have 7 years of violin teaching experience and 3 years of piano teaching experience. Most of my students have been young children but I have also had students of all ages, from children as young as three years old to adults who are in retirement. Attending Kodaly training at the conservatory has equipped me to teach from an auditory and songs based perspective, where singing is integrated into the instrumental lessons. I also use movement inside of lessons, as I have had some training inside of the Dalcroze eurhythmics approach. This approach sees movement as the embodiment of the music. I also actively incorporate elements of creativity in my teaching, for example creating improvisations, or making musical stories. In terms of my own experience in music, I have performed as a solo violinist with the orchestra as well as being an ad hoc tutti violinist for the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, and with the baroque violin for the Camerata Tinta Barocca and Cape Consort. I have performed with traditional African musicians and ensembles, as well as with dancers for instance in MusicDance021 which is an interdisciplinary real-time composition project.

Manuel
Violin Lessons in person and online for students of all ages
My violin classes are open for people of all ages and levels. You may have used to play the violin many years ago and are trying to get back at it but don't know how, you may have just started and you're looking for a teacher that can guide your first steps, you may be looking for a regular coaching for an already developed sense of musicality — my classes accommodate all of the above and more. Most of my pupils are already intermediate students that are dedicated into becoming the young violinists of the future, but that doesn't mean my class isn't for you if you are simply looking for a hobby! Music is about having fun together! I can teach in English (fluent), Portuguese (fluent), Spanish (fluent) or French (basic).
