About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I can coach your learning, both as a guitarist, a composer, song writer or a mix of everything. why? Because I am experienced professionally, studied music on a very high level and generally just played music my whole life.

My name is Teis, and I am a Danish guitarist and composer, living in Amsterdam.
I started playing classical piano at age 5, but got drawn to the guitar immediately. I loved how quick I could learn to play really fun things, and all the cool sounds I could make.

During 20 years of guitar playing, I've gotten to play many different styles; jazz, rock, metal, punk, blues, country and pop. My schooling lies mainly in improvised music coming from the jazz tradition, but with that said, I am an all-around music lover and enjoy working with all kinds of music. I teach all styles, and all levels smoothly. No macho bullshit, everyone's welcome and I will do my best to make anyone develop their musical ability.

Graduating my masters from the Conservatory of Amsterdam, I am in a very high level in not only guitar but also music theory, and ear training - things that are challenging and fun in all levels and essential to all musicians. It's kind of like how a chef is really good at taste or a painter is good at seeing colours. You can't cook without taste and you can't make music without ears.

I structure lessons after what my students feel like working on. Example topics can be:
- Constructing riffs
- Learning new chords
- Learning how to play solos
- Checking out music together and observing things
- Theory and technical skills
- Ear training
- Building a good practice routine
- Analyzing music

I am myself a performing and active musician. Besides playing on large national stages, I also tour internationally and am gradually building a European wide name for myself and my music. I have also performed in Mexico and the United States and released several CD's, including my latest an third album Mean Mean Machine (Zennez Records).

Send me a message to arrange a first lesson, and then we will take it from there on! All you need is any child or guitar and I will get you started. See you!

///LESSONS TAKE PLACE IN MY STUDIO IN AMSTERDAM NORTH. Because of busy scheduling I can't offer to travel to students houses anymore.

Reviews (2)

Teis is great!!!! Super knowledgeable and great at explaining theory, technique, and exercises.
Teis is really knowledgable and pays close attention to your personal needs and aspirations. I highly recommend him
This course is for a musician who is making music and wants to take the first step into: publishing music Booking shows managing time Laying strategies Administration Fundraising Basically - all the not so fun parts about reaching for a musical career - but crucially important! I have a lot of experience with this, given that I am myself a professional musician with hundreds of shows behind me. I manage several projects and organize events. I also do booking, planning, press strategy, press material. I myself have released three albums, been selected for the largest European showcases, won competitions, been featured in national newspapers and been commissioned by large festivals to make concerts with my own music. I also organized tours with my band, and over the years, I've learned quite some things. If you think this is topics that you are struggling with, or you are ready to make the jump into becoming a professional musician, let's have a conversation and I'll share my experience on the subject.

Ask a question

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

Aurel
Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). Recently, the band was part of Keep An Eye The Records's finalists (March 2022). Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!

Niccolò
Saxophone lessons (Jazz and Classical) - Improvisation - Music Theory (All levels)
My teaching method is flexible and always aimed at the needs of the student. As well as the instrument technique I would suggest an in-depth study in ear training, theory music and repertoire. The lesson is about teaching by involving the student in a fun and well outlined path, without forgetting the joy of learning and making music. I've being teaching saxophone, improvisation, theory music and clarinet (for beginners) for all ages and abilities for almost 10 years now and, depending on which path the student is looking for, I will be thrilled to share and pass on the knowledge I have acquired throughout my teaching and artistic career.

Ischico
Piano lessons at the highest level by an experienced pianist/piano teacher
Hey! My name is Ischico and I am a concert pianist and piano teacher. With my ten years of teaching experience, I am happy to help you further with your piano skills. I think it is important and fun to be able to transfer my own knowledge. Topics that are regularly discussed in class are technique, musicality, interpretation, ear training, improvisation and much more. I give piano lessons in my piano studio at the NDSM Wharf. Every student is different and that is why I create a tailor-made lesson plan for each student. Having fun playing is very important. When a student has fun playing, he or she progresses the fastest. I would like to welcome you for a trial lesson to discuss your wishes. I did two master's degrees at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and at Conservatori del Liceu in Barcelona. Besides teaching, I regularly give concerts and organize other musical projects. I motivate my students, if they are open to it, to take piano exams at the EPTA and to play on recital afternoons that I organise.

Trumpet, Improvisation & Music Theory Lessons (Beginner and Intermediate)
Did you ever hear a tune and you felt like you wanted to just play over it? Did you ever feel like you’d like to discover what makes a tune that special? I can help you to understand how music works and what makes it such an incredible art form! Listening to what you want and need, I can make a tailored plan with you on what you’d like to learn and get you going in the instrument and in your theory. Whether you’re a complete beginner of picking back the trumpet we can work together and make this journey as fun as possible. I teach Trumpet in the multiple styles that you might have come across - being jazz, salsa, disco, pop or funk. In case you’d like to learn more about how to improvise on the trumpet we can also tackle that and get you going, all while having fun! I teach all ages and from absolute beginner to Intermediate players. I speak English, Portuguese, Spanish, and I’m also taking my steps into learning Dutch, even though music is such a universal language. I live in Amsterdam and you can learn at my studio in NDSM, or I can come and meet where you are! It is also possible to arrange lessons in the center of Amsterdam, close to Centraal Station. About me? I’m Luso-american musician who moved to Amsterdam to study jazz trumpet at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where I’m currently finishing my bachelor degree. I started playing the trumpet when I was 9 years old, and since then my passion for music just kept on growing bigger. My main focus as a jazz musician was big band playing, where I’m specialised in lead trumpet playing, however I kept myself open to different styles being part of Afrobeat bands, playing in small formations, such as trios or just playing some groovin’ music from Earth Wind & Fire or Kool & The Gang.

Sergio
Higher Graduate (with masters) in Cello and Conducting teaches music at all levels
My teaching method is scrupulously adapted to each student I have, regardless of the subject to work on (musical language, cello, music history, analysis, conducting, etc.) I always apply the Belgian teaching model, where I trained with my master's degrees in Conducting (Antwerp) and Historical Cello (Brussels). According to this model, the main thing is a living and practical teaching, taking understanding and not memory as the main learning engine.
