Piano and Organ lessons: learn music as a discipline and as a way of living!
I just completed my Master studies at Codarts Rotterdam. Since I was very young I learnt music not only as a separate activity, but as a way to acquire an organized and disciplined mindset that I could apply to all situations in life. This is what my students will learn, together with improving their musical skills and enjoying everything that music can give us!

Eliot
Music: piano, harpsichord, composition, harmony, theory, philosophy, history... anything
Music is one of the finest and greatest arts in history. Encompasses the challenge of corporal control and exercise, rational thinking, and creativity amongst many other skills (and mental/sensitive pleasures). You can learn in the field of composition, music theory, music history, aesthetics and philosophy of music as well playing piano and harpsichord, either the historical repertoire of both instruments or improvising skills (free or based on a style) and old skills like "basso continuo" or "practical counterpoint". If you want to prepare an audition, exam, concert; you need extra-school lessons or you want to learn just for pleasure you may contact me.

Gregor
Piano lessons for beginners and advanced pianists in The Hague
My name is Gregor and I am a pianist and a piano teacher. I can help you or your children dive into the magical world of music. Through weekly individual lessons, you will develop skills of listening to, understanding and playing music either as beginners, students preparing for entrance exams or adult amateur pianists. After finishing studies at four conservatories around Europe (Slovenia, Italy, Croatia and The Netherlands), I am perusing a musical career based in The Hague. Eight years of teaching experience allow me to adapt the teaching process to the individual needs of the student and my active concert career keeps the enthusiasm fresh.

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 (97/100 for voice and 90/100 for piano). Besides, I am a holder of DipABRSM piano performance certificate and ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have been giving private singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 3 to 50 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 a little time on every lesson for ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest of 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. For piano students who are at the beginning of their music journey, I use a lot of creative ways to teach basic knowledge such as rhythm and fingering. These creative ways include colorful presentation slides, arranging a tailor-made version of the songs they like and introducing fun games to keep them motivated. Each student will get something different because everyone is different. As an instructor of vocal masterclasses for choir students in Hong Kong, I see myself as the person who: -- opens the door of fundamental vocal techniques for the students; -- influences them to be confident; -- shows them the beauty of human voice and vocal music; -- teaches them to embrace the others without judgement. My way and attitude of teaching was proved to be successful with a lot of positive feedback. I tend to plan my classes in detail, and give notes to students every lesson. In this case, the students can follow the lessons easily and make the best out of their time. I do not make my students always say "yes" and "okay", I like to work with them and they are always welcome to tell me their needs. Since I grew up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong (Belilios Public School) and I have a lot of English-speaking students, 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.

Piano Lessons for Beginners and Amateurs. Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Own Compositions.
I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master's Degree at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 6 years now, I have been teaching students of all levels between 5 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!

My schedule is very flexible. All levels welcome.

Illia
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.

Guitar and Piano Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own intrinsic passion to the music they enjoy.

Klavierunterricht / Piano lessons. All levels are welcome to join.
In my style of teaching, I approach the challenges together with my students, working as a team. This way, the study progress allows for an individual pace while ensuring understanding due to frequent and implicit feedback. Having fun and learning exemplary pieces are considered as necessary as training technical fundamentals and musical understanding. The entire program is individually composed to meet each student’s interests and needs, so that any level and kind of student is ensured to find a fit. `` Learning the piano is a fascinating lifelong process. It can be compared to learning a new language from the very beginning, step by step. I love guiding students, who share the same passion with me through this wonderful experience of self-discovery.
