Singing Lessons / Recorder (Blokfluit) lessons for all ages

I am a singer studying in the Utrecht Conservatorium and recorder player graduated from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I can teach you recorder and singing and adapt to your tastes and needs.

For both instruments, I focus, as a teacher and performer, on a healthy, joyful and technically skilled way of playing and singing. With my students, I focus not only on the instrument sound production, but also on body posture, relaxation and organic movement. An happy and relaxed body produces a beautiful, natural and relaxed sound.

What music style would you like to learn?
Would you like to play folk music, to sing pop songs or walk through a more classical path?
I have experience in different areas, having sang and played folk and jazz music and also classically trained for many years.

I can also help you with music theory, from the basic introduction to music to advanced solfeggi and rhythms. I graduated in Musicology and studied Music Pedagogy in Portugal before moving to Amsterdam.
For little children, I can also combine the playing of the instrument with more didactic activities mixed with body movement and dance! I have several years of teaching experience both with adults and children, in group or individual setting.

And the most important of all, is that you fall in love with music, all kinds of music, and have loads of fun in the process!

About Me

I am Joana, from Portugal. I love music, dance, writing and relaxing in nature.
I have been doing music for more than 10 years now. I am a singer, recorder player and clarinetist. I also have some curiosity about frame drums and like to play it to relax.

I love music in general, which means that in a day I could be listening to Bach, then Mumford and Sons, then Epica, then Ella Fitzgerald, then Debussy, then Sweden folk music, then old ladies singing songs from Portugal. I believe music serves to express our deepest emotions and to enjoy life in a smoother and more meaningful way. This is what I search in all my musical projects and what I aim with my playing.

I also love teaching and by doing that I feel often at the most comfortable place of my self. My mother is a teacher and I always watched and learnt from her since I was a little kid. How to wonder children with the beauty of knowledge! From as soon as 16 years old I started teaching music to children. I have taught music initiation for children from 4-10 years old, private lessons for children, teenagers and adults, and I conducted a children's choir and an adult's choir while being still in Portugal. Since I moved to the Netherlands this side has been a bit erased, due to language barriers and because I needed to focus on my studies. But now it is the time to start doing it again! Looking forward to see you!

Very professional and very lighthearted at the same time :) Had a wonderful first leson.
I was very lucky to find Joana for my singing lessons! She is extremely kind, clear in her explanation, professional and knowledgeable. Her lessons are never boring and she is very engaging, which is a big plus point. I totally recommend her!
Joana is a very talented, dedicated and experienced teacher! She is attentive, patient, passionate, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, creative and encouraging! I take lessons via Skype and I am more than happy to have found Joana as my singing teacher! Joana easily adapts to the student's level and tailors each lesson to the student's individual needs. I would describe her teaching approach as original, motivating and effective. Joana knows how to create a warm and supporting learning environment where I feel comfortable to explore and improve my singing voice. It is apparent that Joana loves teaching and sharing her knowledge. I would definetely recommend Joana to anyone who is either interested in taking singing or recorder lessons!
Very attentive and clear communicator, offered strong guidance but also let me give my own input in terms of what I wanted to get out of the lesson. Enjoyed our lesson and would absolutely recommend to others!
