IagoPIANO LESSONS: What about learning how to play the piano? (in person and online)
Piano, the instrument used by the romantics to make their most beautiful music, but also by the most experimental and modern composers to create their amazing music. Isn't it a great instrument to play?
With more than 5 years of experience teaching in music schools and 8 years as a private piano teacher, I developed an efficient and "fun"-focusing way to teach how to play the instrument. Every student is different, so also the way to play and learn shall be different, which makes every single lesson special and rewarding.
I also offer the possibility of teaching in groups: if you want to know more about this option.
I hope I become the teacher you want and need!

MarcoMusic Production and Theory: Everything you need to know.
My name is Marco, and I am an Italian composer and sound designer working and living in Amsterdam. I studied Classical and Experimental Composition at the Conservatory, and then Communication Sciences and Technologies, and Sound Design at the University. After that, I spent the last 8 years producing music and sounds for advertisement, short movies, tv shows, documentaries, theatre, art installations, and so on.
This gave me a broad knowledge of how to write music in every different style, and how to do that fast.
This class starts with my experience, but I really want the students to build their own personalized plan, choosing on which of these areas to focus on:
-Arranging for Orchestra
-Introduction to Piano
-Introduction to Music Softwares (DAWs) and Plugins
-Electronic Music and Beats Production
If you need to take lessons at certain times excluded from my timetable feel free to contact me anyways and let's see what we can arrange.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music.
My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real.
For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions.
I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more.
Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.
MarkusFLUTE/SAXOPHONE. Jazz and improvisation lessons in the centre of Amsterdam.
This class includes absolutely everything what the student is interested in terms of jazz and improvised music since the openness of Markus and thanks to the previous experience from CVA in terms of teaching and playing jazz in the Amsterdam Scene.
Markus follows a more open-environment learning atmosphere whilst keeping the traditional teaching methods in mind. Technique exercises and information about the improvised music are the 2 pillars of the lesson. Also, its good to mention that the lessons are not what you'd expect from a traditional lesson. We rarely use paper in the lesson and the most important aspect is not the eyes but the ears. Since improvisation doesn't use paper, why would we use it in the lesson?
NicholasPiano, Organ, Improvisation and Music Theory Courses

KlaasPiano- en improvisatieles en muziekproductie in Amsterdam
Vanuit mijn studio bij de Berlagebrug geef ik pianoles aan beginners en (half-)gevorderden. De lessen vinden plaats aan een Yamaha vleugel en wanneer een stuk goed in de vingers zit, kunnen we daar dus een professionele opname van maken.
Zelf ben ik in 1992 als docerend musicus afgestudeerd aan het Hilversum's Conservatorium (tegenwoordig Conservatorium van Amsterdam) in de richting lichte muziek, oftewel jazz en pop. Dus bij mij leer je niet alleen noten lezen, maar ook akkoordenschema's en -als je wilt- improvisatie. Of we zoeken samen een liedje uit dat je graag wilt spelen en maken daar een mooie bewerking van. We kijken samen eerst naar wat je precies wilt leren en stemmen daar de lesstof op af.
Ook kan ik je helpen bij het leren componeren en produceren. Ik werk met Pro Tools en Logic Pro X.
Voor klassiek pianoles verwijs ik je liever door naar iemand anders.
CarlaLearn how to play the violin and read music step-bystep!
I use a step-by-step teaching approach based on The Suzuki Method, personalised and designed for each student, focusing on individual strengths and talents.
My lessons incorporate music theory so that a deeper understanding of music can be met. This incorporation keeps the necessary theoretical component of music fun, interesting and alive.
Students receive structural practice material, as well as their own favourite music to practice and master with my help and guidance.
Teacher-Student duets are a fantastic and fun way to gain the skills needed to play with other musicians (Ensembles, Orchestra, Bands, etc.)
I aim to empower the student to be their own best teacher whilst integrating discipline with proven practice techniques necessary for a solid foundation in violin playing.

Leon HaxbyProfessional Piano / Composition / Music Theory Lessons in English
I am a friendly, patient and professional Piano, Composition and DJ teacher from London, currently living in Amsterdam. I began composition lessons with Darren Bloom at Forest School and was awarded a scholarship to the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, where I graduated with a BMus in Composition in 2015. I am now studying for a Masters degree at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Richard Ayres and Wim Henderickx. My previous teachers include Richard Causton, Edwin Roxburgh, Ed Bennett, Joe Cutler and Howard Skempton. I have also taken part in masterclasses with Mario Garuti and Colin Matthews.

My scores are held in the Royal Academy of Music and American Viola Society libraries, and my pieces have been performed in various locations throughout Europe, the USA, Canada and South Africa.
In addition to classical composition, I have also completed a number of scores for short films, and composed the soundtrack for Marianna Jungman's show at London Fashion Week in 2014. Other collaborators include Jeff Leyshon, Andrew Delaney, Zena Holloway and New York-based photographer Graeme Montgomery. I have been commissioned to write soundtracks for Japanese Vogue, and Cent Magazine.
For DJing I specialise in Techno, Dubstep and Drum & Bass music. I was taught by Noah Priddle and Kasey Riot at the London Sound Academy where I completed a course in 2017.
From 2009-2011 I taught Drumkit to students aged between 10-15 at a local Rock & Pop School. I've also been involved in a number of music courses for children between 2009-2014 as a Supervisor / Sound Technician.
In 2016 I began giving private lessons, and built up a group of over 20 pupils ranging from 5 year olds to adults. Between April-July 2017, I also gave private and small-group music lessons at a local primary school.
Approach to Teaching:
My philosophy in Music Tuition is to improve the student's technique through exercises and pieces which they enjoy. I also provide a general music education as I believe in a holistic approach, and increasing their passion for music which will increase their motivation for practice and improvement.
ParisaPiano Performance, Classical and Modern Music (with some Persian and Azeri music only if interested)
You will start to enjoy playing the piano both during the class and outside of the time of the class. You will learn how to be able to perform in a way which inspires your audience. I will teach you the basic music theory without going way deep into the theory because this is a performance class but you will learn what you need to excel your performance. Additionally, I will teach you the principles of aesthetics of playing the piano. The repertoire that I focus on is mostly the Western modern and Classical music, but we can also work on some famous Persian and Turkish pieces if you like. Of course, you are also always welcome to bring your favorite pieces to the class.

I have a long and broad experience of live music performances in UK, Netherlands, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, India, Belgium and France. From baroque, symphonic repertoire, chamber music and contemporary music to pop, folk, jazz and funk.
Enjoy making Music!
It is essential for students to enjoy making music while facing the technical challenges that the instrument naturally presents. That’s why I always face technical problems starting from music. Without enjoyment, learning is much harder.
No Instrument yet?
I am very happy to you finding the suitable gear for your level and your budget! (trumpets, mouthpieces, bags, etc..)

Teaching has always been a big part of my musical experience and one of the main goals of my own musical education. I've always been focusing on the broadest and most organic way of learning music. Thanks to my classical studies, my jazz Bachelor at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master of Music Education, I am able to tailor my lessons to fit the requirements of any student.
