Mario
Violin for everyone! Repertoire provided. ABRSM/Trinity possible
:) Hello! I've studied at the Royal Conservatoire where I followed the “Master in education”. I teach at a studio in the city center or at your place if you wish. I can also do online lessons if you like the idea. Music making is guaranteed even online! You'll spare some money too as I will provide all the needed books and repertoire. You can play from your screen or even print at home the necessary sheets for the lesson rather than buying unnecessary extras. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

When words fail, music speaks. However, learning how to play guitar chords like Jimmy Page or Jeff Beck, isn’t easy.

Student's goal-centered trumpet and general music lessons in Amsterdam
Have you always wanted to play an instrument that is extremely diverse and used in many different music styles?

Gabriel
Violin Lessons in Amsterdam through the Suzuki Method
Private Violin lessons in Amsterdam, with a specific focus on the "Suzuki Talent Education". I teach children from ages 4 up to the conservatory level. My main teaching approach is based on the principles of the Suzuki Method. The lessons are tailored to the specific needs of each student, including game-like exercises and space to be creative and have fun!. I also teach adults who play the violin as a hobby. What is the Suzuki Method? Developed by Shin'ichi Suzuki, a Japanese violinist, and pedagogue who was one of the most influential ones of the 20th century. Through a life-long process of experiences, research and evolution, S.Suzuki created the "Mother Tongue Method" based on the observation that all children learn to speak their native language with ease through listening and repetition. He believed that since very young children could master the complexity of their native language, they could also master playing the violin. The Suzuki Method not only contributes to the development of the musical abilities in children but it is also a great and powerful influence on a child's growth as a human being and their social values, sensitivity, discipline and love for life. “Musical ability is not an inborn talent but an ability which can be developed. Any child who is properly trained can develop musical ability, just as all children develop the ability to speak their mother tongue. The potential of every child is unlimited." S.Suzuki.

Eduardo
Saxophone, Clarinet, Piano and Music Theory classes taught by graduates in Music Performance
I am a graduate in Bachelor´s Jazz & Modern Music Performance at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona (Spain). I am offering physical and online lessons in Music Theory (harmony, composition, solfège ...), Improvisation and Instrument (Saxophone, Clarinet and Piano). Lessons are addressed to every student profile, regardless of age, level of expectations (no matter if it is seen as a hobby or rather if the individual is getting prepared for official Conservatory auditions, etc.). We will play and / or focus on what the student wants / needs to go deep in (whatever music style of his / her interest, more theoretical aspects or rather practical ones), trying to obtain the maximum profit from the employed time, and placing as our priority the actual learning of the person as the main factor for her / his motivation.

I address my lessons to all levels, from complete beginners, to those who have never heard of music.

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.

I'm very relaxed, and I teach right through from complete beginners to an advanced level. Whether you are looking to advance your technique or just get to the point where you can play your favourite tunes, I can help! I'm a native English speaker, and music lessons are a great way to develop your language skills at the same time. I hold a MusB (Hons) degree from the University of Manchester, and I currently study at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
