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?"

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. I have an excellent command of English, good working knowledge of French and basic German. Furthermore, I am currently learning Dutch.

Alethea
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.

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 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.

Francine
Private Violin and Viola lessons for all ages and abilities
I am an experienced violin/viola teacher recently arrived in the Netherlands from Australia. I have a Bachelor of Music (Honours) from the University of Melbourne and am currently completing a Bachelor of Early Music at the Royal Conservatoire at the Hague. I have been teaching for more than 10 years, and since 2013 was running a strings program at a steiner school in Tropical North Australia, as well as running a busy teaching studio and conducting community orchestras in the area. I love teaching and consider it one of my main passions. I enjoy working with students of all ages, and have taught several adult students of varying abilities, as well as children as young as four. I aim for my lessons to be enjoyable, inspirational, systematic, and holistic (covering many different musical aspects and skills in one lesson). I am a friendly and patient teacher who believes in all my students and helps them be the best they can be.

Alba
Violin for begginers and intermediate level. For kids to teenagers or adults that want to learn how to play violin.
I am a student in the Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague. I am from Spain and I teach music and violin to students from 7 to 99 years old. My aim to teach is due to my passion for music, being it something that gives people lots of joy and I also consider it's a helpful tool to develop mental, emotional and social capacities. Exploring different feelings and learning how to express them is also a nice part of this job. This way, working with students and teaching them to give what they have on the inside resuts very satisfying for me, as well as seeing them reaching their goals and enjoying the music they love the most. I adapt the lessons to the student depending on his/her goal, requirements and I also let them express their own ideas and resolutions and why they want to learn to play violin. By these lessons I hope to help each child and adult enjoying music and acquiring multiple capacities as creativity, discipline and patience.
