Singing Lessons / Recorder (Blokfluit) lessons for all ages

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

In 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. A happy, 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 studied in the Conservatorium for a long time.

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!

In the past I taught how to play and sing, from little children (4 years old) to adults with around 60 years old, in group sets and individual lessons. I can adapt to your needs and requests!

And most of all, you will fall in love with music, all kinds of music and have loads of fun!

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!

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!
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!
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!

Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. Having graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music and Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude), I am currently pursuing my postgraduate study in singing at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, under the tutelage of Valerie Guillorit. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have performed as soloist at a lot of occasions in Hong Kong and Europe, and the repertoire includes opera, Lied, oratorio and new music. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions in their ABRSM exams and some of them had won prizes in competitions. However, I do not teach them for distinctions and prizes. No matter what they get on their music journey, I love them with all my heart and I always believe that encouragement is the key. For beginners, I focus a lot on basic techniques. During the lessons, I also like to share my knowledge about history and theory, which are important building blocks to shaping a musician. For advanced learners, I would teach more about musicality and music presentation along with basic techniques. Of course, the actual teaching method depends on the personality and ability of student too. I grow up in a top English school in Hong Kong, so I can communicate in English fluently. I am confident that I will give my students the best learning experience. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a trial lesson:)

Andrea

Hi, I’m Andrea! I’m a professional classical guitar performer and educator from Sydney, Australia. I have been developing my music teaching business for over 8 years, through which I teach a wide range of styles, levels, and ages. Lessons are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each student, whether the focus is on classical guitar performance, chords, pop/rock, jazz/blues, or Spanish-style fingerpicking. Music theory, composition, songwriting, improvisation, sight-reading, and preparation for high school exams or University auditions are all options that can be incorporated into lessons. I have plenty of experience with young children and teenagers as well as adults, from complete beginners to advanced players. My teaching philosophy is holistic in that I strive to help my students become well-rounded musicians with a range of listening, reading, improvisation, and analytical skills, while of course carefully choosing repertoire that will cater to the student’s taste as well as their abilities. Pop/rock guitar, blues and jazz improvisation are also options as well as classical training.
