    Learn how to play the Viola/Violin and how to develop your musical skills!

    I'm a 24 years old Portuguese violist currently living in Amsterdam.
    I have studied at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Nobuko Imai and Francien Schatborn for 6 years from 2014 till 2020.
    As a freelancer I work with numerous orchestras such as: Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Radio Filharmonisch Orkest and Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. I'm also an active chamber music player, amongst others as a member of the Rotterdam Chamber Music Society.

    In addition to my private teaching experience, I have also done a teaching internship at the Muziekschool in Amstelveen during my studies, which gave me a lot of experience working with all levels of playing.

    In my lessons I always go first for the student's aim, what suits him/her the best and always serving the music.
    And of course having fun and pleasure in music making!

    Piano Lessons in English, Russian and Turkish for All ages
    Hello, dear music lovers! I am a concert pianist, chamber musician and piano teacher. I recently finished my master studies in Conservatory of Amsterdam and previously did my bachelor studies in Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. I have experience with children and adults for many years. Besides that I can help you with music theory.

    Duleen
    Viola/Violin or Theory Classes for Beginners, Amateurs or Professionals
    I am a student studying classical viola in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I like to teach and share my passion of music amongst others. I can teach classical, pop and jazz music-whatever you find most suitable. For me the most important, is for you to come out of the lessons feeling inspired and enriched by music. If you are an absolute beginner, do not worry, we can find the best starting point for you.

    Mathilde
    Violin, piano, harpsichord and music theory lessons for all levels and ages
    My name is Mathilde, I am a French violinist, pianist, harpsichordist, producer and a composer. I have graduated from the world's greatest conservatoires/institutions such as the Royal College of Music London, Manhattan School of Music New-York, Brussels Royal Conservatory, and Paris - Sorbonne University (in musicology). I have been performing concerts around the world in the most prestigious concert halls including the Châtelet Theater and Seine Musicale (Paris), the National Opera House (Oman) and La Scala (Milan), as well as many other venues in Europe, US, China, Middle East. During this period of time, I had been playing in the Orchestra Academy of La Scala in Milan for 2 years. With the experiences I gained over the years - including the teaching experience in the Conservatory of Cambrai (France) - I became an expert in teaching violin and keyboards as well as music theory, including writing and reading scores. I have been teaching to the different age groups and different levels of technical backgrounds (beginner or advanced). I can easily adapt myself to the level of each student to create a synchronicity and help them pursue their goals and wishes. I am there to help them as a teacher and a music coach for their musical career. I can combine different practices and teach basic techniques in repertoire that matches the personality of the student (from classical to contemporary, pop, rock and more). Based on the teaching experiences I have, I can consider myself as a teacher with patience, motivating style and an open mind. I have recently moved to Amsterdam, and happy to provide references from my previous students from Paris if requested. Next to my technical teaching skills, I am also actively involving in various musical projects, and I have recently performed for major TV shows in Paris: Le Grand Échiquier (France 2), Variations (France Télévisions, Culturbox), and I am currently busy with making my first album in Amsterdam.

    Erten
    Piano Playing in English, Russian and Turkish for Begginers
    Was born to musician family and I am a musician who is professionally trained for Piano for 12 years. I can teach from the beginning to intermediate level of piano playing. But most importantly, I will try to make a musician out of you. I have so many stage experiences as soloist and in orchestra in different cities and countries. Within my education I had years of Music Theory lessons and I can teach and explain theoretical part of music also.

    Fiachra
    Violin,Viola, or Music Theory Lessons (suitable for all ages & abilities)
    Greetings! I am currently studying viola performance and education at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I also completed a Diploma in Music Education and Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music before coming to The Netherlands. I have had lots of experience teaching in schools and privately, and I get so much joy teaching people and helping them learn an instrument. My main goal as a teacher is to help students find their passion and love for music and for playing an instrument. I am also very practical in my approach to teaching, always trying to make things as clear as possible for each and every student to understand. When teaching young children, I find that using various different games with and without the instrument helps a lot with their understanding and development. This resonates well with their impressive abilities to play for many hours every day - something which I think is very important for young children to make the most of while they have it. My understanding of the lessons is that every student should come out with the best feeling of wanting to improve their playing, and I always try to motivate every student in whichever way works best for them. I am also very open to using different approaches when it is not working for the student, and I am known to listen very well to feedback like this. I have been teaching violin and viola for many years, and I also teach piano to an intermediate level. For those who would like to learn music theory, or improve their knowledge of the subject, I also teach that. The majority of students who start out do so on the violin, and some change to viola some time later. Some students who begin their musical journey on the violin go on to play not only viola but other stringed instruments such as cello and double bass if they grow away from the violin at any stage - so choosing violin in the beginning will certainly give you the most options.

    Filipe
    Learn how to play violin in English, Portuguese and Spanish (suitable for all ages & abilities)
    Hi! Originally from Madeira (Portugal), I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years. After graduating from Bachelor and Masters, both at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, I have decided to pursue my education in the teaching field, currently enrolled on a second master's degree, this time in teaching. In addition to already having a vast curriculum as a soloist or orchestral musician, I consider myself highly passionate about teaching, not only violin but also music theory. I have been very lucky to have had great teachers, who, in addition to have taught me the violin and the love for music, they have also shaped the person I am today. I can't find anything more rewarding than to share everything what I learned throughtout all these years!

    Alejandro Cabrera
    Violin lessons for beginners to advanced, & music theory lessons.
    Private lessons for beginners to advanced level of violin playing. All ages are welcome. I am a professionally trained teacher and violinist for almost two decades. My lessons are given in English, Spanish and (soon) Dutch and French. My teaching method is variable depending on the students' needs, but the goal is shared: to make a great musician and qualified violinist out of the pupil. I work on both technical and musical aspects from a (very) consciously prepared healthy and enjoyable perspective. Particular emphasis on having fun with the little ones! I pay special attention to creating a personalized education and experience for every one of my students. I also give some additional tools applicable to the violin playing which includes: Introduction to Yoga, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique and Body & Mind. All the basic theory is taught too. Occasionally, there are student concerts and collaborations with other teachers. (These may include some teachers from the Sweelinck Academy or the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and more). From among the required tools for my lessons are: a violin and a bow, score and books purchases when necessary, and, from time to time, meetings with the parents. On occasion, I use digital tools like phone/tablet apps. I can teach in various places near or in the centre of Amsterdam, or, depending on the need, I can move to pretty much wherever in The Netherlands. About the homework, I send it to the students on a weekly basis and encourage them to participate on competitions and summer music courses. As always, this is conditional on the pupil's stage.

I have experience in teaching to children as well as adults and I like the student to have fun while learning such a wonderful thing as playing music. If you are a beginner I'll start with the basic theory, but always in combination with practical approach on the instrument. I'm mostly working with classical music, but I'm also into other genres and I'm very open to help you in any way I can. I can teach in english and in Italian (working on the dutch!) and I can't provide the violin, but I can give some suggestions about where and how to find it. Please contact me if interested!

    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.
