Classical and pop piano lessons, music theory and solfège (Russian method of training perfect pitch)

I have been playing the piano since I was five. I graduated from a specialized music school in Kiev and now I am a student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I teach both, classical and pop music. I have a very positive approach in teaching and will try to generate a motivating environment, as I understand that learning piano can be frustrating for some! My goal is to help you enjoy piano as well as seeing steady progress.

About Me

For me, teaching is always a lot of fun! Especially, when after my explanation students start to realize how easy it is to do things which they were dreaming about. It also happened to me when I had to deal with the same problems. Since I have always been a classical pianist, it seemed to be impossible to do nontraditional things like improvising, writing music, having fun with other musicians by playing with them, music which we hear right now. The problem is that I didn't have a teacher who would share with me his/her experience, so my way was pretty long. I had to practice really hard and search for solutions at the lowest stages on my own, which caused finding out personal tricks which I am always so happy to share with my pupils. It brings such a joy to watch how students apply my experience and overcome challenges which they were struggling with before.

The story of my classical music development is completely different since I was always very lucky to have the best teachers. Right now I am studying from Naum Grubert who is considered one of the best musicians in Europe. After two years of classes with him, my understanding of music completely changed! Every lesson I receive new discoveries which I am also so happy to share with my students!

Education

I graduated from the specialized music school in Kiev (2007-2018), and right now I am a 3rd-year bachelor student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (classical piano department):

Experience / Qualifications

I have been playing the piano from 5 years old. During studying in Kiev I was actively taking part in international projects such as:
• Richter piano competition
• Horowitz piano competition
• International festival "Moscow meets friends" organized by Vladimir Spivakov
• Chamber music festival and masterclasses in Ede organized by Anna Fedorova, etc.
After moving to Amsterdam and starting my study at the conservatory, I gained a lot of experience in pop music by playing at church every Sunday and performing background events. Now I teach private students for both, pop and classical music.

Aron
Piano lessons for all ages and styles? Look no further!
Looking for educational, versatile and fun piano lessons? Look no further. My name is Áron and I am a 26-year-old performing artist and educator from Hungary. I have been playing the piano for over 18 years and I have taught students of all ages, from beginners to advanced musicians. What can you expect from your piano classes with me? My main goal, apart from teaching the technique, theory and repertoire, is to show students how much joy music can bring to their life and to let them expand their own musical ideas. You will be able to discover the importance of musicality, artistry, the role of music in our life, the attitude of playing, listening, composing and experimenting with new sounds. STRUCTURE BY LEVEL Beginner* I have got my own techniques of teaching kids (lots of colors, shapes, children songs), as well as adult beginners. What’s most important in this stage is to let the student enjoy the sound of the piano, and be satisfied and motivated after a lesson. Together we will work on a certain repertoire that will help you improve your technique and hearing skills, develop your musical knowledge and creativity. Intermediate* With students of this level, we will work more on perfecting the harmony, technique, and transcription. You will learn how to improvise a more challenging repertoire that requires the practice of both technique and music analysis. Advanced* Depending on your goal, I am going to help you develop a certain part of your piano playing. We are going to dive into details of harmony (jazz harmony), improvisational skills, compositional skills, stage skills and more. *Classes can be tailored to your needs and particular areas of interest if needed. I hope you are excited to explore music together! :) Feel free to reach me at if you have any questions.

Yana
Enjoy Piano Lessons: learn to read music,understand rhythm,harmony, music phrase,technique and explore creative imagination!
Hello! My name is Yana and I am a graduate from the Juilliard School, New York who is offering piano and harpsichord lessons for children and adults in Amsterdam! Originally from Bulgaria, I have received a Master's Degree in New York and an Honoree Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music. As a soloist, chamber music performer and as part of the orchestra I have played concerts in the US, Canada, Italy, The Netherlands, Japan, Singapore and Bulgaria. I greatly enjoy teaching and I care most for inspiring love for music and piano playing. I believe in the understanding of the needs, likes and ways of learning of each individual student and through that searching for the student's own creativity and imagination. My teaching experience includes teaching several years in music and art schools in New York and Cleveland and almost 5 years private practice here, in Amsterdam.

Gosse
Piano lessons via the best and fastest way to Rome!
Do you want to teach (electric) piano, keyboard or synthesizer? Then you have come to the right place! Gosse (1989) has been giving piano lessons for more than 10 years and we are proud to announce that almost all students who start the lessons actually continue. The lessons are primarily focused on fun and development. He knows from experience that the most important ingredients for learning to play the piano as effectively as possible are: 1: The pleasure of playing The fun is increased by learning to play numbers that the student experiences as beautiful or fun and that bring the right degree of challenge. Gosse mainly specializes in Pop, Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Funk, Bossa-nova, Latin and Light classical styles. Learn to play your favorite songs! 2: Learning in the way that best suits the student There are three different ways in which someone can learn to play the piano: sheet music, by ear and (the relatively new way) through software programs such as Synthesia. The correct method differs from person to person. 3: Knowing the music theory / shortcuts The three ways you can learn to play the piano described above help you press the right keys at the right time. But it can be easier. Namely by knowing the underlying music theory and / or the shortcuts! Gosse also teaches music production (songwriting and producing). He is most specialized in the Logic Pro and Ableton studio programs. He also helps vocalists who want to accompany themselves on the piano. Feel free to contact us for a trial lesson, for a more detailed version of the above 3 points or if you want to know more!

Viktor
Piano Inside Out - a complete introduction to understanding and playing piano
| Amsterdam or Haarlem | This class is defined by flexibility. I will teach you anything from inner workings of a piano, all the way to Liszt pieces, improvisation, analysis, sight-reading or arranging popular songs. The first lesson is reserved for my professional assessment and your exclamation of certain wishes - on what you would like to learn and at what pace. I send all relevant material before each lesson (including scores, infographics, or further reading material), so be prepared to have it with you when the time arrives! My mode of doing things is 'per lesson' - in other words - depending on your free time and spirit - with very flexible timing (regardless of the specified 'duration' of lessons).

Teemu
Piano and theory lessons in Jazz / Pop / Classical / Rock etc
Hi there! I've studied jazz piano & composition at Conservatorium van Amsterdam and Helsinki Conservatory, played live concerts & recorded albums with many various artists in different genres from jazz, rock to classical music. Currently I offer only lessons via Zoom-connection.* I use a camera above the piano keyboard, so you'll see my hands and the keys clearly when showing playing examples. Every student is very welcome in my lessons. We'll start from where you are in your playing and I'll structure the lessons around your interests. So if you are a beginner or perhaps a more seasoned player, you are very welcome. If you have any questions about my lessons, I'll be happy to answer them! After the lessons I make a PDF for each student about the theory we discussed and other details if necessary. *live lessons available in Amsterdam from August-September 2021 onwards. We take care of proper covid-measures if the pandemic is still.

Cello, Piano and Music lessons in Utrecht. All levels and different genres!
My goal as a music teacher is to make the students able to experience all types of emotions by playing music, understanding the musical process from its roots with a creative approach. My lessons are designed according to the specific needs of each student and the main objective is to guide them in the optimal direction to achieve their full potential in a fun way. Thereby, the instrument becomes a tool to understand what making music really means and will be a way for the student to express his emotions. My approach to the lessons can provide a lot of creativity, fun and originality. How will my lessons look like From the first lesson, the student will start making music. We will begin learning the basic concepts of music, developing listening and rhythmic skills with fun exercises. Lessons will also be focused on learning the basics of music theory, creating a solid technical base and paying special attention to having a relaxed and healthy body posture. My academic and professional experience has helped me create a teaching method where improvisation is an essential tool for the student. I enjoy working on it from the beginning since it is a perfect way to develop musicality. Playing different music genres together As a musician, another of my sources of inspiration is to get to know and to learn from different styles, playing and experimenting with music from the classical period until the most avant-garde style. During the lessons, we will play pop, jazz, classical and many other styles. I would like to explore the instrument with the student in a fun way, growing, improving, and discovering new ways of making music together. During the lessons the students and I could play together, either playing some duos with the cello or accompanying them with the piano, which is an activity that I really enjoy. Playing together with more people and with a polyphonic instrument from the beginning will give the student clues to learn how to play in ensembles and listen to all the different voices that can be part of any musical composition.
