Bassoon (Baroque/Classical and Modern), Theory, and Composition Lessons

I am a bassoonist and composer from Australia who is available to tutor in Amsterdam. I teach not only the ordinary modern bassoon but also historical performance, whether that would be on period instruments or otherwise. I am also available to tutor music theory and composition for all levels.

I have won prizes in both bassoon and composition, including the Royal Schools Music Club Anniversary Scholarship, the Bendat Family Foundation Composition Scholarship, the Royal Over-Seas League Arts Travel Scholarship, and the Catholic Arts Chapman Scholarship.

I have also been part of a variety of ensembles, including the MAPLE wind quintet, Tura New Music's Breaking Out Ensemble, and orchestras in Australia. I have had the incredible opportunity to write and arrange for many ensembles with very different instrumental combinations such as Piñata Percussion, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of St George's College, and Trinity College, Perth.

As a teacher, I strive to develop students to become inspired by music and to always seek a deeper understanding and appreciate of music. I am open to teaching any student so long as they can hold an instrument comfortably!

Extra information

Students must provide their own instrument and/or composition software. I can provide reeds for bassoon students.

Music Lessons (Jazz & Modern Guitar, Jazz Music, General Theory, Ear & Rhythmic Training) from a Graduated. Also ONLINE
Jazz & Modern Music Lessons in Amsterdam and ONLINE. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you love music and want to start learning it, I can help you out. I am a graduated musician who can teach students from all the levels playing jazz & modern Guitar, Music Theory, Jazz Improvisation and Theory (any instrument), Ear Training and Jazz/Pop/HipHop Composition and Arrangement. Also piano for beginners. From jazz style to other modern styles such as Bossa Nova, Funk, Rock, Groove, etc. With ten years of experience in studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing, singing and learning it. Music is like speaking, so my method starts by teaching how to connect your voice with your instrument. According to your rhythm in the learning process, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I was born in 1997 in Tarragona (Catalunya, Spain). At the age of 4 I started to study classical guitar and when I was 10 I went into modern music and jazz. I am currently based in Amsterdam, where I am currently studying a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously, I've studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), where I finished my Bachelor last year. 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, Santi Careta, among others. During my musical career, I've been lucky to play with great musicians such as Bill McHenry, Fèlix Rossy, Gianni Gagliardi, Jo Krause, Horacio Fumero, Aldo Caviglia, Mario Rossy, Sanna Van Vliet, Eladio Reinon, Rita Payés, Deejay Foster, Benet Palet, Deejay Foster, Guillem Arnedo, Julius Gawlik, Deejay Foster, Gonzalo del Val, Ian Cleaver, Txema Riera, Menno Daams, David Lucácks, Fernando Brox, Vicent Pèrez, Pau Lligades, Santi Colomer, Santi Serratosa, Juan Pablo Balcazar, Eva Fernandez, Magalí Datzira, Lucas Martínez, etc. I've attended to masterclasses from International musicians 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, Richard Bona, among others. Furthermore, I've got the pleasure to play at many festivals and clubs around Spain (Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival from Barcelona, Festival de Jazz de Terrassa, Luz de Gas, Jamboree, Sala Barts, Auditori, Robadors23, Balius, Música als 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, etc.), and The Netherlands (GrachtenFestival, Intercontinental Hotel, NEMO Science, festival Otis Park, Stella by Starlight, etc).

Alberto
Trombone lessons in Utrecht with Alberto. One of the MOST VERSATILE instruments!
Playing the trombone is so exciting. Many genres to explore! Are you looking to start learning the trombone? Perhaps you already play for some years but want to improve your technique, breathing skills, or learn a new genre? I am Alberto, and I will help you achieve your musical goals with a tailor-made program. My approach is to find suitable music for your technical and expressive level and work specifically on the challenges that it represents. Music is for everyone! Kids and adults Perhaps you want to surprise your couple playing a bossa-nova. Or maybe you want to become the next solo trombone at the Concertgebouw Orchestra. Everyone has different goals when playing the trombone, it is my job to help you achieve them. If you don't have clear objectives yet, I will be guiding you and exploring the possibilities of trombone playing with you. Also, especially for kids, I can help you find a nice pBone. They are lightweight plastic trombones made with great quality and available in different colours! Good technique, and a lot of fun The most important lesson I have learned in my career is that making good music is only possible when you enjoy the process. Of course, good technical skills are crucial but studying exercises that you find boring is not the best way up to proficiency. Instead, finding your unique best approach to improve your skills will get you to the moon! For improving your tempo awareness, would you practice with a metronome or would you rather use a drumbeat sample? Your health is important! Body awareness and breathing techniques Not only wind players benefit from doing sport, acquiring good posture habits, and being aware of their breath. It helps everyone in every single aspect of their lives. A good breathing technique will let you play easily, run for a longer period of time, or sleep better at night. On the other hand, body posture awareness helps with productivity and saves money on the fysio. Life hacks that you cannot miss! Improvisation and open-mindedness That very feeling of creating art on the spot. Only a few experiences can relate to it. When we explore and create, our flow state gets triggered. We are fully immersed in the activity and the world surrounding us vanishes. If you like, we will go on a journey discovering new emotions, colours, sounds, harmonies, textures, styles, genres. And improvising on them. Let's get creative! Technology in music. Recording and producing Let's face it, we are in the 21st century and the possibilities of technology are endless in the audiovisual field. Recording for auditions, producing and releasing your first single, live looping, use of effects... You can learn all that with me. Are you curious? Book your lesson now! Ok but, how will my lessons look like? Breathing practice is one of the best ways to start warming up. It will take the first 5 minutes of your lesson and your body will be prepared to start playing. Then, we would go into working on your specific goals. Perhaps, we are practicing music that demands improvement on the higher register, maybe we are working out different scales for improvisation, or it might be the case that you want to discover a new genre and go deep into it. Reading music, ear training, phrasing, music theory, buzzing and embouchure position, articulations (legato, staccato, accents), dynamics... These are only an indication of what we might work on. The final minutes of your lesson will be the moment to relax. We can get creative, play some tunes together, improvise, or even talk about a specific topic like musicality, art, creativity, technique, theory, or the music industry for instance. Group lessons and ensembles Making music alone is fun, but playing with people brings it to the next level! If you like the idea, I will bring you together with other fellow students for technique workshops, jam sessions, duo with piano, or whatever other activity we might find interesting for you. When and where I offer flexibility in my schedule so your trombone lessons fit into your agenda. I can come to your place, or perhaps you prefer visiting my teaching room in Utrecht. I will have some coffee or tea waiting for you. Online trombone classes Online has become a new trend. I will help you set up your equipment and focus on what is important, music. Book a lesson now! Alberto, the eclectic brass player based in Utrecht I am a brass performer and teacher that has performed in classical and modern music ensembles for more than 15 years. During this time, I attended innumerable masterclasses and had great fun in various professional experiences such as performing at Tomorrowland, an avant-garde music festival in Malta, or the great symphonic masterpieces with symphonic orchestras in Spain and the Netherlands. I hold a bachelor's and a master's degree in music performance and a master's degree in music education during my official studies in Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Nowadays, you can still find me teaching brass in the Utrecht area, composing and producing my own music at home, playing tuba with a symphonic orchestra, trombone in a reggae band, or improvising trumpet over a techno track.

Clarinet and Theory Classes for Beginners, Amateurs and Professionals
Currently I am studying Classical Clarinet in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I like to teach and share my passion of music amongst others.

Fiachra
Violin,Viola, or Music Theory Lessons (suitable for all ages & abilities)
Greetings! I am currently studying viola performance and education at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I also completed a Diploma in Music Education and Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music before coming to The Netherlands. I have had lots of experience teaching in schools and privately, and I get so much joy teaching people and helping them learn an instrument. My main goal as a teacher is to help students find their passion and love for music and for playing an instrument. I am also very practical in my approach to teaching, always trying to make things as clear as possible for each and every student to understand. When teaching young children, I find that using various different games with and without the instrument helps a lot with their understanding and development. This resonates well with their impressive abilities to play for many hours every day - something which I think is very important for young children to make the most of while they have it. My understanding of the lessons is that every student should come out with the best feeling of wanting to improve their playing, and I always try to motivate every student in whichever way works best for them. I am also very open to using different approaches when it is not working for the student, and I am known to listen very well to feedback like this. I have been teaching violin and viola for many years, and I also teach piano to an intermediate level. For those who would like to learn music theory, or improve their knowledge of the subject, I also teach that. The majority of students who start out do so on the violin, and some change to viola some time later. Some students who begin their musical journey on the violin go on to play not only viola but other stringed instruments such as cello and double bass if they grow away from the violin at any stage - so choosing violin in the beginning will certainly give you the most options.

I also aim to inspire people with music so that they find joy in playing an instrument and in the lessons. Feel free to message me with questions! Hope to see you soon!
