Berklee College of Music Graduate offers private lessons of Guitar, Harmony & Improvisation in Utrecht

The way I teach actually depends entirely on the student. The way I explain the concepts, plan and structure the lessons and approach each subject all depends on whether the student is a beginner, intermediate or advanced, and whether he or she has some experience on the subject.

Each student has different needs and different abilities. It's just a matter of getting to know the student, in order to identify both the weaknesses and strengths on which to work.

Hernan is not just a good teacher but an exceptional one. I have had only one lesson with him so far, but I got so much from it, that I am very happy for more. He gave me a good welcome and went above and beyond from the beginning. He is very modest and professional in his teaching style, which makes it easy to absorb what he teaches. I would say I am an advanced composition and intermediate orchestration student with decades studying and composing by myself. I had been thinking about taking some advanced online courses available on the internet, but almost all such courses are really work-on-your-own courses. They might have Facebook groups available at best, where you can post questions. But they cannot compare to having a real teacher with the hands-on knowledge guiding you one on one. That one session was packed with so many great insights which I could have never gotten out of any video course or book. Only an insider of orchestration craft and the music composition industry could have such insights. I am looking forward to what I can learn in future lessons.
Great first lesson!!
Very good teacher, explains everything clearly and makes music theory less scary.
Hernan is an exceptional guitarist and a very skillful and a brilliant music teacher. He helped me prepare for my *Berklee College of Music* guitar audition that I have passed easily thanks to all of his tips and work methods. His music theory knowledge is outstanding and to a prominent level. He always explains musical concepts clearly and his workflow is very organized and to the point. I cannot recommend him enough.
Hernan was very well prepared and shared useful knowledge.

Heewon
Tailor-made piano lessons with patient and professional teacher
Hi, I’m Heewon from South Korea and I currently study music in HKU Conservatory. For about 14 years I have studied various aspects of music, I’ve studied piano, vocals and composition, and now I am studying piano in the jazz and pop course. Not only have I played lots of jazz and pop, I have played lots of classical, neo-soul and gospel, to me it’s important to be well versed in lots of genre’s. How amazing is it to play the music that lives in your head? Piano is by no means difficult, it make’s for a great hobby and is a wonderful stress reliever. My class is open for people of all skill levels and is held in English or Korean. Essential parts of my lessons are: -Tailor-made lessons to suit your skill level and needs. *For beginners we’ll go through basic piano skills, basic music theory and reading sheet music. *If you're an intermediate, you'll be given a class that suits your level, needs and wishes. (ex. How to improvise, how to accompaniment, how to arrange, etc.) -I will provide my own materials and documents. If you are interested or if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me!

Singing/Voice Lessons & Beginner Music Theory Lessons
I teach private singing lessons to children, teenagers, and adults in English (for now) and beginner music theory for all ages. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, I am teaching online only. There is no extra cost to the student and you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to have a fun time! I have 20 years experience as a performer and 10 years of teaching experience and have a passion for sharing music with others through music education. I believe that singing is a joyful expression of each unique voice and person. My teaching philosophy is to nurture students to have a fun and positive relationship with music no matter the level or age. My focus on a classical vocal technique gives the student a clear understanding of vocal technique, including: breathing techniques, pitch control, musicality and the knowledge to explore any genre of song. Basic music theory, rhythm, diction, sight-reading and ear training are also taught to the student to support a well rounded musical experience. I also teaches students how to practice, giving them the tools to feel confident in their own learning process. Absolute beginners are welcome! For online course, piano tracks are provided for you to sing along with during the lesson and we have a lot of fun together.

Emi
Singing - piano - music theory lessons, given in Ede (in English or Dutch)
Hallo! My name's Emi - I'm a British musician living in the Netherlands. I have been incredibly lucky to have had some incredible musical experiences... Some highlights including performing for the BBC/Ronnie Scott's TV Nights/O2 VIP Lounge/support for acts such as JP Cooper, and founding the Limelight Sessions (international monthly music nights, with acts such as Nick Wilson/Joe Buck/Hannah Grace, and many more).... But my biggest passion is teaching. I have 7 years of teaching experience (singing/piano/theory/English language), and a 100% pass rate in students' exams - from classical to pop music. I teach all ages/levels, and will tailor lessons to your own goals and musical visions. If you'd like to know more, or want to set up a taster lesson, then I'd love to hear from you! Hopelijk tot snel, Emi :)

Max
Guitar lessons with a focus on playing technique, sound and applied theory
I want to base my lessons on playing the guitar and related instruments in a way that feels mastered and personal. I therefore want to focus on expression, technique and the aurally malleable nature of the instrument, for example by discussing extended techniques and the use of effect pedals. I want to invite the students to learn to listen carefully to the impact of different playing techniques and audio effects. During the lessons I want to cover different kinds of music theory, especially in an "applied" way that is valuable to the student. I also want to deal with recording and producing my own work. Owning your own effects pedals, a guitar amplifier or recording equipment is not required for this course.

In addition to good technique and musical developments, I am mainly concerned with the interests of the student and as a teacher try to apply an appropriate learning method. Everybody is different.

Singing lessons in various styles & beginner music theory lessons
Singing lessons for all levels and age. For beginners, together we can discover the range of your voice and build the breathing and singing technique. At the same time we will work on music theory, ear training and how to read a score. For mature singers, we can delve into the singing technique and interpretation and add pieces in your repertoire. The lessons are provided both online and in person and can be held in English or Greek. I also speak some Italian and German. About me I have been playing the piano for 15 years. I have studied Classical Singing in the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata (Greece) and I have followed a two-year Early Music Programme in Athens Conservatoire. At the same time I studied Music Theory (Harmony) at the Greek National Conservatoire from which I gained my Harmony degree.

Fabian
Guitar and Music Theory for Beginners and Intermediates
Guitar playing is a fantastic skill, and is passed down from generation to generation. I have been playing since I was a child, and studied music for 5 years, up to masters level. My classes focus on orienting beginners and intermediate level guitarists in repertoire, theory application, and musicianship. The classes run for 2 hours and are taught in English. First we will assess your current ability and what your goals are, and then we can make a roadmap to get you where you want to be in a reasonable time frame. I usually set one piece of homework each lesson. I like to use Sibelius First (totally free software!) to share score sheets and activities with my students.

Mar
Piano lessons for kids and adults of all levels: Teacher with official experience.
My name is Mar and I am a 24-year-old pianist (with pedagogical training) who is doing her master degree at the Utrecht Conservatory. I have been working for 10 years as a piano and music teacher (I started very very young, when I was 14 years old, because I always liked teaching): Experience in private lessons and official state music schools, with children from 2 years and adults of all levels, both individually and in groups. I have taught piano, music and movement for children, solfeggio and choir.

I hope to have the pleasure that we both learn by making music together, do not hesitate to contact me! Flexible timetable and teaching adapted to the student's preferences

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.
