Music lessons: Double bass, bass guitar. Jazz, classical and world-music. Learn how to study

Hey there! In my lessons, what you want is the most important. That's why we create together a plan of study with ideas, goals and subjects to reach out our dream to make music (that's also my dream)

Nevertheless, I can give you an overview of the content:

I divide the music theory in two: Technical and Musical.
Technical Theory regarding all the concepts and information related to music, and Musical Theory regarding the ideas and concepts to help us understand and improve the performance of music. Besides that, we look to harmony in a functional, rhythmical and organic way. We learn and approach music from the first lesson, looking at it from different angles (understanding rhythm and essence of a song for example). All this plus a nice diet of assignments and exercises: D

Furthermore, we put especial attention to enjoying music. That means playing but also listening music! For me, that's one of the best ways to learn :)

And of course, we learn as well by making mistakes, so at the end it's all about fun and trying things out;)

Remember: "True success isn't just getting what you want in life - it's liking what you get";)

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!

Piano and music lessons tailored to YOU. Meet an experienced, awarded pianist and a passionate musician.
You are in good hands. I am trained profesionally to perform and to teach. I have a long experience working in French and American schools. In my pianistic career, I performed hundreds of times with numerous musicians and ensembles. Above all, music is my passion that I wish to share with you! My teaching experiences range from students aged 4 to 65+. My main feature is flexibility. I can help you with conservatorium entrance exams or with learning how to play songs you like - from scratch. I can help you improving your technique or guide you in writing your first song. Have you always dreamed of improvising? Or is it the film music? What is that you need? Tell me. Let's get in touch. Are you not sure? No problem. I always have some ideas.

Singing Lessons (Individual) - Pop, Jazz, Soul, Blues, Rock (in AMSTERDAM)
In my classes you will be deciding what to study, how to learn and in which way you want to approach singing and music in general. You will have the freedom to set up a plan and reach the designated goals with the help of my support. I will show you and teach you different singing techniques and guide you towards finding your personal and unique voice. I will adapt to your needs and will help you to achieve and surpass your goals! I strongly believe that: "The voice is an all-powerful instrument, capable of expressing deep feelings that perhaps no other musical instrument can do. It is directly connected with the soul and becomes the audible expression of it. It converts the invisible into visible, creates new sounds and colors, transforms emotion into music. The voice is a tool to discover, subject to continuous evolution and expansion; expansion that goes beyond our imaginable limits."

Seen Tung
Piano/Music theory/Composition & Arranging lessons tailored to your needs and wishes
Hello, this is Seen! I am a pianist, composer and arranger from Hong Kong, currently studying at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I am offering piano and music theory lessons tailored to your needs and wishes. Perhaps you are an enthusiastic adult beginner, or you want to pick it up again after not touching the instrument for some time? Or perhaps you are looking for a teacher for your child? I have been giving music lessons for the past 9 years to students at different levels aging from 5 to 60. I understand that we all approach music in various ways and everyone needs different styles of guidance. I am looking forward to getting to know you and experiment with how I can help you along the way. Perhaps you want to play pieces from the classical repertoire? Or perhaps you want to acquire the skill of learning your favourite pop songs by ear, or learn to read lead sheets and chord symbols? Perhaps you want to learn to accompany yourself singing? Perhaps you want to learn improvisation over chord progressions? As a musician grew up with classical music training and later moved on to explore jazz and pop, I enjoy helping you to deepen your understanding about different styles and to have fun with playing! Perhaps you’ve always wanted to improve your piano technique, but get turned off by studies and scale practice? Perhaps you wish to acquire a stronger sense of rhythm or a more sophisticated control of sound? In my experience, advanced technique comes along with a tension-free body and mental space, and we can work on that together. I also find creating unique musical exercises that adapts to students’ needs makes the learning process more enjoyable. Perhaps you would love to integrate music into your daily life, but find it challenging to keep the momentum and interest in a long term? I try to structure our lessons so that students can see steady progress. I also understand that incorporating a habit can be a tricky part, so we can also develop study and practice plans together and explore ways to make your practice time more efficient. Perhaps you not only want to learn the instrument, but are also interested about the theories behind the music? Perhaps you want to learn some basic arranging skills and write for an ensemble that you play with? Perhaps you want to try composing your own music? As a composer and arranger, I would also love to share my experience on these subjects with you. Music is an enormous universe and there are always new territories to explore. I’m still a student on this journey, and I’m more than excited to share my experience and accompany you on your way!

Violin lessons for beginners to advanced, & music theory lessons.
Private lessons for beginners to advanced level of violin playing. All ages are welcome. I am a professionally trained teacher and violinist for almost two decades. My lessons are given in English, Spanish and (soon) Dutch and French. My teaching method is variable depending on the students' needs, but the goal is shared: to make a great musician and qualified violinist out of the pupil. I work on both technical and musical aspects from a (very) consciously prepared healthy and enjoyable perspective. Particular emphasis on having fun with the little ones! I pay special attention to creating a personalized education and experience for every one of my students. I also give some additional tools applicable to the violin playing which includes: Introduction to Yoga, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique and Body & Mind. All the basic theory is taught too. Occasionally, there are student concerts and collaborations with other teachers. (These may include some teachers from the Sweelinck Academy or the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and more). From among the required tools for my lessons are: a violin and a bow, score and books purchases when necessary, and, from time to time, meetings with the parents. On occasion, I use digital tools like phone/tablet apps. I can teach in various places near or in the centre of Amsterdam, or, depending on the need, I can move to pretty much wherever in The Netherlands. About the homework, I send it to the students on a weekly basis and encourage them to participate on competitions and summer music courses. As always, this is conditional on the pupil's stage.

I can also teach piano for beginners. I cover a range of styles from jazz to other modern styles like Bossa Nova, Samba, Funk, Rock and Groove music. With ten years of experience in studying, practicing and playing, I have come to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is to develop your musical ear. This is done by the process of to transcribing and singing. I believe that music is like speaking a language so I start with teaching you how to connect your voice to your instrument. In accordance with your rhythm in the learning process, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, and how to compose your own melodies and improvise. I was born in 1997 in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain). At the age of 4 I started studying classical guitar at 10 years old I took a keen interest in modern music and jazz. I am currently based in Amsterdam, where I am studying a Masters Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously I studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), where I completed my bachelor's degree. I have studied and learned from great musicians and teachers such as Jesse van Ruller, Rob Van Bavel, Reinier Baas, Jaume Llombart, Maarten Van Der Grinten, Sanna Van Vilet, Dani Pérez, Eladio Reinón, Joan Monné, Enric Peinado, Albert Bover, David Xirgu, Gonzalo del Val and Santi Careta, among others. During my musical career I have been fortunate enough to play with renowned musicians such as Bill McHenry, Jasper Blom, Fèlix Rossy, Gianni Gagliardi, Jo Krause, Masa Kamaguchi, Horacio Fumero, Aldo Caviglia, Mario Rossy, Sanna Van Vliet, David Xirgu, Eladio Reinon, Rita Payés, Deejay Foster , Benet Palet, Deejay Foster, Julius Gawlik, Deejay Foster, Gonzalo del Val, Ian Cleaver, Txema Riera, Menno Daams, David Lucácks, Fernando Brox, Vicent Pèrez, Santi Colomer Serratosa, Juan Pablo Balcazar, Magalí Datzira and Lucas Martínez. I have participated in masterclasses with international musicians such as Peter Bernstein, Jorge Rossy, Chick Corea, Bob Mintzer, Christian McBride, Kenny Barron, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Gary Burton, Ben Street, Lage Lund, Michael Kanan and Richard Bona. Furthermore, I have had the pleasure of playing at many festivals and clubs in Spain (Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival from Barcelona, ​​​​Festival de Jazz de Terrassa, Luz de Gas, Jamboree, Sala Barts, Auditori, Robadors23, Balius, Música as Parcs , Auditori del Liceu, Cercle del Liceu, Casa de Cultura de Girona, Keyboard Jazz Lounge, Cafè Metropol, Festival Internacional de Dixieland de Tarragona, Traviesa, MArt, Sala Zero, Gira Cicle Andajazz 2018, Clasijazz, CICUS Sevilla, Gran Teatro de Huelva , El Musicario, Rizoma Records), and in the Netherlands (GrachtenFestival, Intercontinental Hotel, NEMO Science, festival Otis Park, Stella by Starlight).
