Drum lessons, learn how to play the drums, music theory etc.

I can offer you private drum lessons, that are tailored completely by your own interests, or I can advice you what would be efficient for you to improve, depending on where you stand with your experience and skills. We can together discuss about setting a goal, and start working your way towards it.

You don't have to have previous experience in playing the drums. You can be an absolute beginner, intermediate, or more advanced student. I also teach all ages.

Some things that we can go through in lessons:

-Overall knowledge over the history of the drums
-Tuning & setting up the drums
-Posture & technique
-Groove & timing. Playing with a metronome
-Sound & dynamics
-Different styles (jazz, soul, funk, hiphop, latin, pop/rock etc.)
-Rudimental playing (classical etudes to improve your technique)
-Reading, writing & transcribing drum notes/fills/solos etc.
-Improvisation
-Polyrhythms

Everything is possible! :)
You just need to show up, grab a pair of sticks with you, and we can see what interests you and we may go further.

About Me

Hello!

My name is Roope and I'm a professional drummer. I come from Finland, and been living in Amsterdam since 2015.
Music has always played a big role in my life. I have grown up listening and playing classical, jazz, hiphop, progressive/psychedelic rock, and pretty much all kinds of stuff, which makes it easy for me to understand different interests and styles.

I come from a musical family, plus my parents and many relatives are teachers. For me teaching has always been a thing that I enjoyed to do, and I feel that it goes pretty naturally for me.

Besides of music Im very fascinated about arts, rock climbing and skateboarding.

Feel free to ask me anything, Im more than happy to help!! :)

Education

Conservatory of Turku (2014), music performance, drums
Conservatory of Amsterdam, Bachelor in jazz music (2019), drums

I have been studying drums with Jukkis Uotila, Martijn Vink, Marcel Serierse, Lucas Van Merwijk, Haye Jellema etc.

I started music at the age of 5 with classical piano.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been an active, performing drummer and musician since 2010 and have been giving private music lessons for almost a decade now.

2014-2015, before moving to Amsterdam I worked as the main drum teacher in a private music school in Paimio, Finland, called Varsinais-Suomen kansanopisto.

Since 2010 I have worked on/off as a substitute teacher in elementary schools & high schools in Finland.

I am a student studying classical piano at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I graduated from the Yehudi Menuhin School in England. I can help students with their piano exams, theory exams. I also have experience teaching beginner students. My goal is to inspire people with music so that they find joy in playing an instrument and in the lessons. I also aim to make every student coming out of the lesson to feel motivated to practice and want to do their best.

Leon Haxby
Professional Piano / Composition / Music Theory Lessons in English
I am a friendly, patient and professional Piano, Composition and DJ teacher from London, currently living near 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. I was the winner of the Orchestre Nouvelle Generation Composers Competition 2016/17, and the Birmingham Conservatoire Orchestral Composition Prize 2015. 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. Teaching Experience: 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.

Music 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: -Film Scoring -Sound Design -Music Theory -Arranging for Orchestra -Solfège -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.

Gonzalo
Violin Lessons for all levels in English, Dutch and Spanish
"I deeply believe in the greater importance of Music and in its ability to influence and shape who we are as human beings." -Daniel Barenboim In my classes, the student will grow his/her love for Music and violin playing by a very conscious work on technique and musicality. As a student, I started through Suzuki Method, which I followed for many years as a child, kept growing illustrated by the Franco-Belgian players, and discovered the importance of physical observation and technical accuracy from the Russian playing. Far to often I have seen young talents spoiled by physical tensions and also technical perfection with lack of musicality. It is my main objective to grow this two aspects in balance and combine a beautiful and encouraging repertoire with the necessary efficient exercises to free the body. I have a Master of Music degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I have students of all ages and they can tell their experience on their own.
