Petra
Violin or Piano lessons for all ages in The Hague.
Dear friend, I would like to help you or your child to realize the creativity and beauty of music through instrumental music lessons. I like to integrate my lessons with a holistic approach to learning an instrument, with a focus on establishing a solid technique and facility on the instrument through the lessons without letting the mechanical technicalities of an instrument eclipse the musicality of playing an instrument and therefore the enjoyment of it. I can also teach music theory, history, and aural (ear) training. I am happy to teach any age, I have 6 years of teaching at Forres Preparatory school in Cape Town as well as teaching a couple of adults. Most of my experience is with children, however, I encourage adults to learn as learning an instrument for an adult is one of the most rewarding activities. Currently, I am studying towards my Masters in Music Education at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague (2019-2021) with Liesbeth as my violin teacher. In terms of my own experience in music, I have performed as a solo violinist with the orchestra as well as being an ad hoc tutti violinist for the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, and with the baroque violin for the Camerata Tinta Barocca and Cape Consort. I have a great interest in world music, folk or ethnic music from all over the world as well as different approaches to teaching music (for instance Dalcroze eurhythmics) and performing. Because of the styles of music I have and I have performed with traditional African musicians and ensembles, performed with MusicDance021 interdisciplinary real-time composition project and attended a summer school in Dalcroze Eurhythmics. I seem to have a bit of a global approach to music, perhaps as I have received tuition in music for short or long periods of time in South Africa, Europe, California, China, and Australia.

Talía

Piano and harpsichord lessons for beginners, amateurs, and students at intermediate level. In the lessons I work in a balanced way between the repertoire, exercises and improvisation. I always seek to adapt to the wishes and needs of the students, and because of the flexibility that this requires I do not stick to one specific method, unless the student asks for it.

Celia
Professional pianist, Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offer music and piano lessons in the Netherlands. Good quality :)
Hello! My name is Celia. I'm from Spain and I live in Rotterdam since August 2018. I currently study my second year of a master programme in Music therapy at Codarts, Rotterdam. I obtained my bachelor diploma in Piano performance in 2016 (Zaragoza, Spain), and after two years of experience in a music academy as a piano, harmony and music teacher in Spain (2016-2018) I discovered in myself a real vocation of sharing and bringing piano music (and music in general) closer to all kind of people not only by teaching but also by the use of music therapy. I have experience with children, adults, and cases about different disabilities, as Asperger, autism or Down's syndrome. I use in my lessons methods from different pedagogies, combining them in a different way for every student according to their needs, and always with creativity and taking care about all aspects: sound, body posture, real understanding of the music... and the most important, the happiness of the student learning and having contact with the instrument and producing his/her own contribution to his/her development and enjoyment :)

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!
