Trumpet Lessons for all ages & stages, in classical & jazz and more!

Hi! I'm a professional trumpet player from Australia now based in Amsterdam. I've spent the past 10 years freelancing with some of Australia's best orchestras (Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Darwin Symphony Orchestra & Sydney Symphony Orchestra to name a few..), as well as recording sessions for pop/rock artists, film scores and music theatre. I've enjoyed diversifying my career by teaching in Australian schools, and now since I've moved I'm looking to help you with your goals now I'm here in Holland.

I've taught students of all ages in classical, jazz, pop approaches to trumpet. My lessons are catered to your interests and your personal development. If you're an absolute beginner, no worries! We'll get you from making fart sounds to fun melodies soon enough. If you're a bit more experienced and wanting to improve your technique, you've come to the right place! I was lucky enough to be taught by some excellent heavyweight pedagogues in the scene, including David Elton (principal trumpet of London Symphony Orchestra and Sydney Symphony Orchestra), and Tristam Williams (international soloist). I've taken masterclasses with Wycliffe Gordon, Adam Rapa, James Morrison, Wayne Bergeron, Phillip Smith to name a few. I've got so much to share with you from those incredible teachers! And I've also formulated my own pedagogy along the way that I really believe in.

About Me

Hey there!
I'm a 27 year old professional trumpet player, composer and music producer from Australia now based in Amsterdam. I've been teaching for nearly 10 years now and I absolutely love it! Learning music is for absolutely everybody regardless of age or ability. It's a fantastic way to connect with others and express yourself, and it does wonders for kids development when done regularly alongside their school education.

When I'm not performing with professional orchestras, I'm often writing music for other people. Sometimes for chamber ensembles, or for advertisements. I also produce my own electronic music and collaborate with singers to make pop records.

My teaching style is very adaptive and respectful to the student's wishes and abilities. All of our lessons will be catered to you, and I am more than happy to share my enthusiasm for music and my wealth of knowledge I have acquired from my very long list of teachers I have had over the past two decades.

Education

Bachelor of Music, Melbourne University
Graduate of The Australian National Academy of Music.

I've also been a fellow of many national and international festivals and residencies, notably the Bang on a Can Summer Festival (2016), Eighth Blackbird's Creative Lab (2018) and Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio's (MESS) Professional Development Course
2018.

Experience / Qualifications

I am a registered casual musician with the following institutions and ensembles:
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Darwin Symphony Orchestra, WatchThis, The Australian Ballet, Australian Opera, The Production Company.

Fun Through Music: Violin and Music Theory Lessons
Hello, I'm Adelina! I'm Romanian and I've recently graduated my master’s in violin performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. Apart from playing music, one of my other passions is teaching. While having a degree in pedagogy, I've had several violin and music theory students so far. I’m experienced with teaching children/teenagers between the ages of 4 and 15. However, I’ve had adults in my class as well! As my profession requires, I’m calm, creative with musical games and have quite a lot of patience. I’m fluent in Romanian and English, however I’m able to have basic conversations in Russian as well and I’m in the process of learning Dutch. Don't hesitate to contact me and let's make learning fun! :)

This course also includes an introduction to the history of jazz.
