Katie is a great teacher. Gave me great lessons. Definitely a skilled musician & a nice person. You won’t regret taking a class with her.
Katie took the time to guide me through the class and explained me about theory and practice.
Just perfect! Thank you so much. Heidi
Katie is an excellent teacher; she’s really patient, cheerful and attentive. I LOVED my first lesson ! We dove into the theoretical part and already played a few songs to assimilate what we just went through. Also, she will make sure to give you tips to practice at home; which is really valuable when you want to learn an instrument (or something else !). I started piano with her, and I honestly intend to continue learning with her as well ! :)
Had a great first piano lesson with Katie, she clearly knows what she's doing. Whilst at the piano I got a crystal clear hands-on explanation of the theoretics, during which Katie made notes in my book. I got to play multiple songs, learned technical exercises and how to practice at home. Katie's very motivating, sociable and a joy to have as a teacher. Though it has only been one lesson, I highly recommend her and have booked my next weekly sessions.

Piano Lessons in English, Russian and Turkish for All Ages
Hello, dear music lovers! I am a Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory alumni and currently continuing my studies in Conservatory of Amsterdam. I have experience with children and adults for many years. Besides that I can help you with music theory.

Marco
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. Hope to hear from you soon! Cheers :)

Zara
Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques. Alongside with that, I spend around 10 minutes every lesson on things such as ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest on the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. Since I grow up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

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!
