Fun and instructive CELLO LESSONS for all levels in Bezuidenhout (DEN HAAG) and ONLINE

I am a music teacher with a keen interest on helping my students to develop their musical identities and technical abilities.

Learning an instrument can be a fun and rewarding activity at any age, no matter if you want to become a professional musician, or just want to enjoy an artistic leisure activity. Learning music improves coordination, social and emotional skills, and makes us smarter. And music is something everyone needs in their lives, no matter the age, background or profession!

I have more than fifteen years of teaching experience. Throughout this time I have met students of very different backgrounds, ages and approaches to the instrument, who have inspired me a lot. For me, teaching is also a part of my lifelong learning of the instrument, which enlightens me every time. Also, being an active performer who is used to face a wide variety of styles makes me a more versatile teacher.

According to my own experience and philosophy, the best teacher is the one who teaches you how to become your own teacher. I do my best to follow this approach in my lessons, enhancing the student’s autonomy and own identity.

I use a bunch of different methods and resources, which helps me to match the needs, musical taste and level of each student. I like to play a lot with my students from the very beginning, so I can help them to improve their intonation and rhythm in the most efficient way, and we have more fun playing together! A special focus is put on keeping a natural and relaxed body posture while playing, in order to produce an open sound and be able to play with comfort. Also, as you might have noticed by browsing through this website, I am especially fond of baroque music, so if you are too, I will be happy to focus on this repertoire, or even introducing you to the baroque cello. But other styles are most welcome as well!

What is included in my lessons:

-Personal method adapted to the individual needs of each student
-Sheetmusic
-Music theory basics
-Leads on finding further coaching on music theory
-Advice on purchase/rental of a cello
-Newsletter with cello-related content

If you are not able to come to my place or you live elsewhere, I also offer online lessons for non-beginner students.

Silvia
Violoncello and Music Theory. All ages and all levels.
Hi! My name is Silvia, I come from Spain and I am currently studying a Master in cello performance in the Royal Conservatory of The Hague with Lucia Swarts. In my lessons, I put into practice a teaching method adapted to the needs and objectives of each student, always through an environment of motivation and enjoyment. In addition to cello classes, I also offer lessons in harmony and music theory both in English and in Spanish. I work for all levels and all ages, from the first contact with the instrument. Don't hesitate to contact if you have any questions!

Carla Peña
Cello and Music Theory Lessons for all levels and all ages
My name is Carla Peña and I come from Barcelona. Since I was a child, music has played an important role in my life. I started learning music when I was 4 years old and cello when at the age of 6. I discovered the love for music and that is what I share with my students. I have experience teaching cellists of all levels and ages. If you are in The Hague area and you want to learn the cello or improve your playing, you are welcome to do lessons with me! I adapt to the needs and the wishes of the pupil, creating a personal and flexible plan, depending on your time and level. Even though I am specialized in classical music, I can teach different styles from classical to jazz, to film music, pop, … ABOUT ME: I studied my Bachelor in Conservatori Superior del Liceu in Barcelona, with professor Amparo Lacruz. Then, I decided to continue my studies at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague in the class of Michel Strauss and Jan-Ype Nota. During my studies in The Hague, I did a teaching internship at the Royal Conservatory as a part of their Minor in Music Education. I also taught in several Music Schools during my studies in Spain. Currently, I teach private students in The Hague. I play regularly in two chamber music ensembles: Trio Jakob and Azalaïs Quartet. APPROACH: It is very important to share music with other people in order to develop as a musician. That is why I love teaching. I learn from my students as much as they learn from me. In order to learn the technique in an organized way, I use cello methods, choosing the method that adapts better to the needs of the student. I combine it with nice songs in different styles, depending on the taste of the student, from classical to jazz, film music, pop, etc. Playing together is an essential part of enjoying music. Therefore, the last part of the lesson always consists of playing cello duets and having fun!

Sophia
Learn Cello, how to read music, and get to know more music
For anyone who wants to learn the cello, get better at it, and have fun with it! We will work on the fundamental things (how to hold, how to read), training of muscles and the brain with exercises, the mindset, and the sound, so that you (or your child) can play with confidence, and most importantly, have fun. I will happily help you find your instrument.

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.

Liutauras
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!

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.

We will work with the objective of each student in mind to achieve it.
