Harp, Piano and Music lessons/workshops for students of any age

By mixing this learning together with my harp (and basic piano) skills, my goal as a Music teacher now is not only to teach you “the right notes”: I will do my best for you to enjoy Music, to discover the instruments, to be creative and curious, to give space to your ideas and to express yourself through playing, using few words but a lot of practice. Every lesson will be a moment of reciprocal exchange of knowledge and ambitions, a new adventure for everyone to learn from each other.

Extra information

I can teach harp at any level, and piano to very beginners; both individual and group lessons are possible.
I organise Music workshops for groups of children, with or without instruments (using body languages and voice).

I can teach both on my big concert harp (classical harp, 47 strings) and on my small one, perfect for little pupils (27 strings).

About Me

Why do I teach? Music is the most essential and natural form of Art, one of the anciest and most fundamental elements of all time, for all cultures. That's why it is known as the Universal language, the one to communicate, to share, to help, to express feelings and thoughts even when they cannot be expressed with or by words. I could see this even more during the past 4 years while teaching and leading classes for kids and adults, refugee and homeless people, often facing big issues like the impossibility of verbal communication (for cultural or physical reasons) or critical behaviour situations.
In these cases, as for daily life situations, flexibility, a very open mind, enthusiasm and empathy can make a big difference. Doens't metter which instrument or kind of Music you play: you can express something special with it, and I would love to help you to!

Education

After my Bachelor Diploma in Genova (Italy), in 2014 I won a Scholarship and I moved to Den Haag for a six-months Internship at the Royal Conservatory. There, from 2015, I have attended finished in 2017 the “NAIP-New Audiences and Innovative Practice” European Master, which enriched me with many new skills and a greater awarness about Music and its role in our own lives and our Society.

Experience / Qualifications

As harp performer, I am an open-minded and curious player: beside many years of pure Classical repertoire, all through the years I collected many different experiences also in Contemporary Music repertoire, focusing on free improvisation, live-electronics performances, collaboration with composers and experimentation of all possibilities on my instrument. I was part of NOOS Ensemble (Italy), PYO-Palestine Youth Orchestra (Italy, Palestine, Jordan), GEO-Galata Electroacustic Orchestra (Italy), Jeune Orchestre International de Montecarlo and DUO Flauto&Arpa (Italy).

As teacher, thanks to my Master carreer I am trained to lead and teach different kinds of groups, from children to teenagers, from people with dementia to vulnerable groups. In 2017, I was involved as Artistic Producer in an intensive training-programm for teachers of El Sistema Greece in Athens (supported by Impact Hub Athens) analysing and developing the organization of music lessons for children in refugee camps nearby Athens.
I am now collaborating with the vibraphone player Fernan Mejuto Vazquez for the
realisation of our original music workshop format “Around the World”, addressed to children and kids from different parts of the world living in NL, and based on our favourite method and philosophy of working through Creative Music Making and Collaborative Composition Processes, applicable to any kind of group and community.

Beside my teaching activity, I work as Production Leader both for Stichting Ciconia Consort (classical string orchestra based in Den Haag) and for the Classical Department at the Royal Conservatory (Den Haag). This job has certainly taught me a lot about reliability, responsibility, flexibility and punctuality: all these skills undoubtedly characterize every aspect of my working life, without a doubt also that of teacher.

Alethea
Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7, and have been playing the violin for 15years. I am currently continuing my violin studies at a Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Lise
Piano lessons for children/adults, beginner/intermediate
Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.

João
Piano lesson, harpsichord lesson, keyboard lesson, music theory
Over João R. Hello everyone! My name is João, piano and harpsichord player. I started playing the piano at the age of 7 years old and, since then, I completely fell in love with all the keyboard instruments and its possibilities of expressivity, the clear sense of making music, interacting with other musicians, for my own pleasure, and for the others. The harpsichord came in my life when I was 15 years old. I absolutely love Classical and Baroque Music and as well as Jazz and Pop. I started teaching piano at the age of 20 and I must confess that it became a great passion in my life! I love to see my students improving, getting acquainted with different music styles and motivated. I'm skilled in teaching kids and adults, beginners or experienced with the keyboard and/or music theory. Therefore, I use different methods, according to the student's needs and expectations. Each student is special so a lesson can differ, depending on the student's level. Normally, I start with warming up and technical exercises (posture is very important!), a brief music theory contextualisation of what is going to be approached in the lesson and, most importantly, have fun and provide a nice atmosphere during the lesson. I've graduated in piano and harpsichord at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2007. In 2012 I've graduated in harpsichord at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, obtaining my Master degree at the same institution in 2014. Currently, I'm doing my Ph.D. studies in Performing Arts at Leiden University/Orpheus Instituut Gent. I teach theoretical music studies at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague and, eventually, accompany and coach students from the Young Talent Music Department. In 2014 I've founded the Baroque Music Orchestra Le Concert d'Apollon, taking the lead of harpsichord player and music director. If you are willing to learn how to play the piano or continue your studies, it will be a pleasure for me to show you how learning a keyboard instrument has so much to add in your life. I can give lessons at my studio in The Hague or travel to your destination. I look forward to meeting you and guide you through the wonderful world of music!

Gina
Piano lessons and music theory for every age and every level!
My name is Gina and I teach piano and music theory for more than 5 years to children, teenagers and adults of every age. I consider myself a musician in a more holistic way than just a pianist, having experienced also multiple other instruments such as the viola, the tampouras (traditional byzantine instrument), guitar and voice, as well as different choirs and orchestras. At the age of 21 I gained my first professional degree in music harmony from the Conservatory "EHOGENESIS" and one year after in the classical piano from the Conservatory of Saint-Dimitris. Meanwhile, I was accepted in "The Royal Conservatory" of The Hague, to continue more advanced piano studies. Now I live, study and teach piano in The Hague and surrounding areas! The construction of the lessons is tailored on each student's needs and wishes. I choose pieces and exercises from different books, while guiding the students on practising songs that they personally like. I also provide basic music theory notes and knowledge, to help with the understanding of the piano and music in general. Every lesson is an opportunity to learn something new with main purpose the musicality, expression and enjoyment! The piano lessons are fun and productive at the same time! For the students who want to understand deeper the music, I am also teaching music theory as a separate class. *Lessons take part online (espesially in these Corona times), and also in person. Hope to see you soon!

Myrto
Piano, Music Theory and Musical Creativity for kids and adults
I am a greek composer and pianist and I give piano lessons to kids and adults of a wide range of levels. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in learning how to play the piano or you are curious about music theory or how to make your own music. The structure and the material of the lesson are based on your skills, preferences and wishes, but also according to established piano methods and further music bibliography. I am always keen on transcribing some of my pupils' favourite pieces on piano according to their skills, something that often is very useful and fruitful for their progress. In the first lesson we will talk about your interests, motivation and goals and we will create together a personal course structure. Music demands patience and practice, but all these become easier when you keep your motivation alive by enjoying the process! The lesson can take place online and at your place or mine.

Carmen Ramirez
Cello classes, musical language and basic level of piano
Classes suitable for all ages, levels and tastes. It is not required to have prior knowledge of music. In my classes I offer you in a pleasant and effective way the mind-body integration with the cello. I will quickly teach you how to solve a passage, find the root of a problem, clarify solfeggio doubts and incorporate it into the cello with a physical feeling of comfort, that you feel comfortable and that you can finally enjoy the music you are able to make :) If you are starting into the cello, all the above is valid, it will be your base for takeoff! And if you are already initiated in the instrument, my classes will serve as reinforcement to be able to incorporate new elements that will facilitate your execution. It is a great pleasure for me to be able to accompany each of my students on the path of learning such a beautiful instrument and I am committed to giving my best every moment. I will try to teach you the way you need, individually for each student, and up to the level you want to reach. Now I'm in Spain and we could teach classes via online but from September I will be able to give classes in The Hague.

Gulmira
Piano, solfedgio and theory lessons for the beginners and professionals
To learn how to play piano is never late! I have a 10 years experience of teaching students from the age of 5 until 80. Amateurs and professional musicians, all levels. Diverse repertoire, from light pop to classic. I also coach singers and teach them piano and theory.

Miroslav
Experienced piano teacher still has room for a few private students. Intended for beginners or (very) advanced.
My goal in teaching and coaching is to bring out the best in people. I am an enthusiastic piano teacher with a lot of knowledge and experience that I gladly pass on to others. As a result, I adapt effortlessly to every level of the student. You can contact me as a beginner but also as an advanced or advanced person. Would you like help with preparing for admission to the conservatory or extra lessons for the final exam? I'm happy to help you with that too. Nice to meet you! My name is Miroslav. I started playing the piano at the age of three and never stopped. In Bulgaria I did my primary, secondary and academic education in piano and then in the Netherlands a DM and UM exam at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. This background allows me to combine the best of both worlds. The precise and energetic passion of the Eastern European way of teaching and the liberal, innovative and socially involved of the Western European education system. This allows me to adapt flexibly to any situation. Do you want to experience how it goes first? No problem! Feel free to contact me for a trial lesson. See you soon! Miroslav

Marta
Singing lessons for children, teenagers and adults, music theory lessons
Welcome to my introduction site! My name is Marta and music has been a great love and passion for my entire life. Singing lessons are not only an opportunity to learn singing and something new about music but also an opportunity to express emotions, forget about everyday worries, and have fun! Through music theory lessons you can learn about the structure of music and also develop some very useful music skills such as reading music (sight-singing or sight-reading). All students who have a specific goal in mind, but also all who do not have any specific goal in mind and want to sing or learn theory just for fun, are very welcome! Different options for lessons which I am offering are described below and all of them can be modified and adjusted according to the wishes and needs of the student: SINGING LESSONS FOR CHILDREN (individual or group lessons - maximum 10 students*) Singing lessons for children is basically an integrated method that combines singing with solfeggio, developing basic music theory skills. It consists of playing musical games and singing children's songs and through those developing intonation, musical hearing, musical memory, sense for pulse and rhythm, all with the attention to healthy singing. SINGING LESSONS FOR TEENAGERS AND ADULTS (individual or group lessons - maximum 10 students*) During singing lessons we will be searching for a deeper meaning of the story and different ways of interpretation, with attention to healthy singing technique, pronunciation and style. The lessons consist of breathing exercises, vocal warm up exercises with a specific technical goal and work on the desired repertoire - meaning of the words and story, vocal technique, pronunciation, interpretation and style. My specialization is in classical singing but I don’t mind working on other genres in my classes. SIGHT SINGING LESSONS (individual or group lessons) Intense course where you will be learning how to read music at sight. The lessons consist of sight singing only, beginning from the easiest level and gradually learning how to read more and more difficult music. You will develop skills needed for sight singing as well as a certain way of thinking appropriate for sight singing. (There is no technique of singing or interpretation involved in these lessons.) SOLFEGGIO LESSONS (individual or group lessons, for children from 8 years old, teenagers and adults) In these lessons you will learn how to bring the written music to life (sight singing), how to discover and put on paper the music you hear (musical dictation) and how to build scales, intervals, and chords. This knowledge is needed and examined on every conservatoire and music academy. For some conservatoires and academies this is an obligatory pre-requirement and elimination factor on entrance exams. It is inevitable part of every professional music education. MUSIC THEORY LESSONS (individual lessons) Music theory lessons can include, if desired: solfeggio, harmony, counterpoint, music form, analysis, and/or other music theory related subjects. For each subject we can make a special program, depending on the wishes and needs of the student. COMBINED SOLFEGGIO AND SINGING LESSONS Combined solfeggio and singing lessons are also possible for adults, as separate subjects or integrated with singing lessons. In both cases the duration of each lesson is 90 minutes and the program is discussed and created based on the wishes and needs of the student. (A combination of individual singing lesson and a group solfeggio lesson is also possible.*) AUDITION TRAINING AND PREPARATION FOR EXAMS (individual lessons) Preparation for auditions concerning singing and/or music theory includes preparation for entrance exams, regular exams on conservatories or preparation for ABRSM exams. *Please, contact me for more information about group lessons. Prices per person in group lessons are much lower than prices for individual lessons. If you have any further questions, please, do not hesitate to contact me... I will be happy to answer all your questions!
