About Me

I'm a Spanish cellist finishing my Masters Degree in Ghent. Despite the difficult times that we are in, I feel really lucky to be able to live this experience abroad and I'm very excited to meet the students that await me here, both young and old.
I base myself on the teachings received from my teachers during all my years of study, in which I have always been especially interested in the importance of the figure of the teacher for the healthy development of students. I adapt to the technical and musical needs of each student, even if we start from 0, without prior musical knowledge.

Education

-Currently, I'm studying a Masters Degree in Performance with Judith Ermert at the KASK-Conservatorium of the School of Arts in Gent.

-I received my Bachelor Degree with Honor Mention at the Superior Conservatory of Music "Joaquín Rodrigo" of València, Spain.

-I coursed my Professional Degree at the Professional Conservatory of Music "Mestre Vert" of Carcaixent, where I received the Professional Music Award.

-I have received advice from renowned soloists and pedagogues such as Gautier Capuçon, Voro Bolón, Enrico Dindo, Peter Bruns, Tilmann, Wick, Troëls Svane, Sun Won-Yang or Asier Polo. In addition, I've been been a regular student of the great pedagogue María Casado.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching for the past few years and I have taken part in pedagogical courses given by CEPIC (Center for the Pedagogy of String Instruments)

Mein 10-jähriger Sohn hat sehr viel Spaß am Unterricht bei Javier. Javier hat ein gutes Händchen für Kinder und kann sie gut motivieren. Echt toll. Das mit dem Online-Unterricht klappt auch sehr gut.
I've spent my whole live practicing and playing cello and I can assure it's one of the most marvelous things one can do. Even if you struggle! I can teach either beginners or amateurs who want to get better at it, or higher level students who want to perfect their craft. Also, if you are somebody thinking about starting with this instrument, do not have any doubt! I base myself on the teachings received from my teachers during all my years of study, in which I have always been especially interested in the importance of the figure of the teacher for the healthy development of students. I adapt to the technical and musical needs of each student, even if we start from 0, without prior musical knowledge. We will work on every aspect of cello playing: Both hands' technique, posture, musical expression... Musical theory, solfège, harmony, etc. are also possible!
My classes are mainly focused on children and students, from 3 years old until the end of high school. However, I would be delighted to teach adults as well. I can assist you in your initiation to the language, give you reinforcement classes or help you with homework or exam preparation.
I'm a Spanish student living in Ghent. I will teach you whatever you need, from ordering at a bar to an intermidiate or advanced level. We will talk about your interests and whatever you fancy, so you can get more involved in your development. With very fun exercises, learning this kind of difficult language will be as easy as it comes!

Cello and/or Piano lessons in The Hague for all ages and levels
Every student needs a teacher that gives personal attention and is flexible, which is why I always adapt to the individual needs and different speeds of learning. Everyone is capable of making music, we only need to develop our skills and with the right tools the world of music opens up. I am deeply convinced that music is something that we all need and find the most comforting in the trickiest situations. Music helps to express the emotions and cello is an instrument that is immensely similar to the human voice. I hope that every student of mine will find their voice and reveal their feelings while playing cello. Let’s meet in our first lesson and enjoy the world of music!

Piano classes online, all levels and ages are welcome.
Being a professional piano teacher and pianist it was very important for me to understand how to make my online piano classes a real good and effective learning experience. My class is fun, easy to grasp and as close as possible to the real live-piano class. I provide my online students: - four different camera angles, so that I can explain technique, fingerings and posture. - great quality sound so that we can work more in depth with the pieces. - high quality image, so that this whole experience feels more natural and close to the student. - copies of my remarks that are send directly to my students after class, as well as displaying my remarks on the student`s music sheets in real time. (If you wish to attend my class in person please see my other class labelled `Klavierunterricht / Piano lessons. All levels are welcome to join.`) MY TEACHING STYLE: 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. All levels and ages (6 -100 years old) are welcome to my class``

Learn to play the CELLO! Spanish, Catalan, English or French. A beautiful instrument, all ages and levels!
The cello is a precious instrument, they say the closest and closest to the human voice. Would you like to learn to play it? You already know but would like to delve deeper? I have a degree from the Liceu's Higher Conservatory of Music, with a Master in Interpretation and finishing another, Master in Chamber Music. With a long career and experience as a teacher and concert performer (ten years of experience), I offer individualized classes, with different methods depending on the objective of each student. My students are from children and adults without prior knowledge to those who want to prepare tests (we can also include musical language in your classes!). We will work with the objective of each student in mind to achieve it.

Ilona
Result-oriented professional cello instructor with 11+ years of experience
Hi everyone! My name is Ilona. I am a professional cellist and a cello teacher with a Master’s degree. My teaching experience is more than 11 years, with 3 years experience of online teaching. Online learning how to play cello is completely acceptable for all levels and ages from 8 years old.  Either you are a Zero Beginner or you are preparing to pass entry exam to conservatory - I will explain you how to practice to become more effective on cello. My current students range in age from 8 to 51 years old and come from all over the world. I always work for results, so our lessons may be longer than an hour at times simply because we haven't completed the lesson plan (with no extra pay). Before you begin learning the cello with me, you should understand two important concepts: when you play the cello, you use your body (arms, fingers) to create sound, and you use your soul and emotions to create music. We'll start by learning how to make sounds, which you'll later use to express your emotions. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. I am currently only teaching online.
