Reviews (2)

Great lesson! David explains everything very well and is patient and professional! Really enjoyed it!
Excellent teacher, looking forward to the next lesson!
I am a native Spanish speaker (from Spain) and also a language enthusiastic. I combine the use of some vocabulary books with speaking practice (which I think it's the most important thing). So we would focus on topics from the books, as a starting point, and then practice speaking, using the vocabulary in real life conversations. Contact me for more information or any other question, I will be happy to answer you.

Enrico
•Learn how to play saxophone, improvise on your favorite song and bases of Music Armony
I'm 24 years old and I joined the world of Music when I was 6. I got the degree in Cassical Saxophone 2 years ago in the Conservatory of Music of Mantova (Italy) and now I'm studying Jazz&Pop in the Conservatory of Utrecht (Netherlands). I've played many concert in Italy and Europe with many different formations: classic Orchestra and Ensemble (Ensemble of saxophone of Mantova), quartet of saxophones (Sax Fever), many different bands, Big Band (Dixiebell Orchestra of Garda, Utrecht BigBand)... •THE GOAL of my lessons is make people enjoy this beautiful form of art. Like when you sing playing saxophone required a total connection between our body and our mind with the horn. As our clarinet friends always remind us, Saxophone is not one of the most difficult wind intrument but an improper embrasure or a wrong breathing can create a wall between our musical ideas and the instrument. •In my lessons I want to work as first on the sound. If the sound is good Saxophone has the power to enchant audience with just one note. Playing long note is a good exercise in this sense, and more natural and relaxed is the embrasure and the body, more easily will be making a good sound. •We'll improve the knowledge of Music Armony working directly on the songs that you love. We will start by transcribe them by ear and then we'll go deeper into the armony and chords. The aim is start to improvise on them and create your own repertoire. •On the other side we will work on reading music. This skill has a primary importance if you want to join all kind of band in the city. •If you are a student that want to enter in the conservatory, classic or jazz, I have a lot of experience in these kind of auditions, so we can focus our practise toward this porpuse. •Music make the mind free and EVERYBODY can play, it's just a matter of practise and listening. If you think that Saxophone is your instrument What are you waiting for!?!? Let's play some Music togheter;)

Theory, Harmony, and Composition – Using examples from Classical to Pop and Jazz music to learn how to use harmony in a functional but yet free and creative way.

Percussion lessons (all instruments)/ Music theory
In the percussion field there are more instruments than you can count, it's a perfect opportunity to try out different things in the musical field and see what you like as a beginner, intermediate or advanced student. I am teaching music theory to all my students in order to deepen their musical knowledge on any instrument. I've been playing, studying, teaching and performing for over 15 years now, so I can use my experience to find good qualities in the you and develop them as much as possible. If you want to study with me I can provide a stable program for development including scores, exercises etc. In this class, we will be focusing on instruments sutch as Marimba, Vibraphone, Drum set, Latin percussion, African percussion, Djembe, Orchestral Percussion, Timpani and more. You can come to a lesson and see what you like from all the things mentioned. Do you have instruments at home? I can come to your home and spare you the travels.

Marcello
Drum lessons for all levels, styles and tastes! - The Hague
Hi! I'm Marcello and I come from Italy. I've been playing the drums for more than ten years now and a few years ago I moved to the Netherlands to pursue a jazz education and to establish myself as a musician. Since I started the jazz bachelor in the Koninklijk Conservatorium I also picked up classical snare drum as a minor. The lessons I offer will have a strong foundation in the technical aspects of the instrument but we will not neglect the music. So I advise you to have an idea of what you want to play but, if that's not the case, I'll be happy to share my passion and my favourite artists!

Adrian
Percussion for ensemble members and drummers - beginning and intermediate
My expertise is in percussion instruments as parts of ensembles or bands. I am a university student from the United States with 5 years of performance and professional experience. I have performed using/have knowledge in the drum set, toms, marimba/xylophone, concert snare, concert bass, and other auxiliary percussion instruments. I also am capable of teaching a number of genres ranging from classical to jazz to rock and latin music. These are targeted for students with any number of goals, whether they are improving technique or learning sight reading or maybe learning particular scores and songs. I particularly empathize with students or others who need to juggle music with other commitments, therefore I am open to and knowledgable in working under those conditions. I work with all ages and with students at the beginner and intermediate levels.

Stella
Jazz Harmony - Understand the How's and Why's. Compose and improvise!
Knowledge in jazz harmony is a very important tool when going into jazz improvisation and composition. When I really started to understand how things work and why they work, the way I started to use harmony really changed. It is not easy to explain the way music works, however, I want to share the way I was taught jazz harmony myself, as I feel it has been an incredibly valuable tool for me, and will be for others.

Enrico
Guitar Lessons for all ages, for all levels with international working jazz musician!
"Music is a social experience". That's the main thing that, regardless of wanting to be a professional musician or just play to have fun, music can offer to us: we can learn how to be among people, and get to know things about music itself, people and even ourselves! It's also a great way to get our own personality and have fun: it enhances our sensitivity and it's just a fun way to spend time! Anyways, how rude, I'm Enrico, a world-touring guitar player, composer and band leader, and I'm really glad you're reading this presentation. I grew up in a small town in the South of Italy, Crispiano, where I started playing guitar as a game, because it was such a great way to spend my afternoons and get together with my friends, just like playing video games or soccer, and here I am now ... my passion became my life! I like to teach that in my lessons: how fun it is to discover new things on your instrument and share them with all your friends ... starting with me. I'd love you to play with me during our lessons and learn things by doing them, starting with what you already like, playing your favorite songs together so you can go out and do the same with your friends! I've been lucky enough to meet teachers and colleagues that had the same approach with me, starting from my classical guitar studies in Italy, through the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where I'm currently finishing my jazz guitar Bachelor, till the masters or jazz music in New York City, which I had the luck to study with, like Peter Bernstein, Barry Harris or Dave Kikoski. This led me, despite my young age, to share the stage with great superstars on the international jazz scene such as Joe Magnarelli, Gadi Lehavi, Felix Rossy and many others and recording my first album, "Social Music" out with A.MA Records in July 2019!

Lise
Clarinet lessons, children or adults (beginner-intermediate)
Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.
