About Me

I am an energetic and positive person who loves making music. My passion is to be on stage playing and sharing music with others. I also enjoy teaching because I love the unique connection music does with human beings; it takes out the best of ourselves and in our hearts!!

I specialized in two instruments: saxophone and viola ( I can teach violin as well). I have 20+ years of teaching experience, I work with adults and children of all ages, from beginners to advanced levels. My extensive teaching experience and performing expertise have given me a vast range of methodologies ideal for adapting my teaching to the needs and pace of individual students. I am familiar with Trinity and ABRSM syllabus since 2011.

I also took additional courses in Basics on arrangements and composition (software MuseScore and Sibelius), Emotional Intelligence in Education and Stress, Management in Education, and Mindfulness. In the lessons, I incorporate the Alexander and Feldenkrais Techniques principles.

Reviews (3)

Estela is zeer aardig en kundig. In mijn eerste altvioolles sinds jaren had ze veel aandacht voor de juiste houding van het lichaam (schouders, armen) en van de hand en vingers, wat ik erg fijn vond, omdat er dan minder kans is op blessures op de langere duur. Ze is vrolijk, geduldig en vriendelijk en ik ga zeker nog meer lessen volgen.
Een hele leuke les gevolgd bij Estela. We waren met zijn tweeën. Viool en saxofoonles. Estela was professioneel en lette op kleine details. Ze had geduld en was vriendelijk. We hebben nu al zin in de komende lessen.
Estella is a very positive, always happy teacher. Even though my son has been having on-line lessons with her, we can always feel her positive attitude during the lessons. She is very patient, gives lots of important tips and feedback, which has been helping him to guide his learning, improving in every aspect of it. We can see how much she care about the whole learning experience. It’s been very useful to expend his time while at home doing the lessons. He has been practicing more and has been feeling more motivated since he started the lessons with her. We definitely recommend her as a Saxophone teacher!

Send a message explaining your needs and Estela will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.

Mario
Violin for everyone! Repertoire provided. ABRSM/Trinity possible
:) Hello! I've studied at the Royal Conservatoire where I followed the “Master in education”. I teach at a studio in the city center or at your place if you wish. I can also do online lessons if you like the idea. Music making is guaranteed even online! You'll spare some money too as I will provide all the needed books and repertoire. You can play from your screen or even print at home the necessary sheets for the lesson rather than buying unnecessary extras. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

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.

Anna
Violin and theory lessons for beginners and intermidate in any age
Would you like to learn some music? I’m a Master student at Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague. I come from Poland and I have been playing violin since 16 years. I have some experience with teaching both kids and adults. Music is my passion and I would like to share it with the others.

John
Violin and Viola Music Lessons (Lessons in English)
I am a professional Violinist (also Viola and Viola dámore) specialising in Historically Informed Performance (Early Music) living in The Hague. I currently perform and record with ensembles throughout Europe and appear on concert stages around the world. Groups that I play for include Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, B-Rock, Collegium Musicum Den Haag and Musica Poetica. I have taught Violin and Viola for over two decades in both Netherlands and in Australia, teaching both privately and also attached to schools.

Alba
Violin for begginers and intermediate level. For kids to teenagers or adults that want to learn how to play violin.
I am a student in the Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague. I am from Spain and I teach music and violin to students from 7 to 99 years old. My aim to teach is due to my passion for music, being it something that gives people lots of joy and I also consider it's a helpful tool to develop mental, emotional and social capacities. Exploring different feelings and learning how to express them is also a nice part of this job. This way, working with students and teaching them to give what they have on the inside resuts very satisfying for me, as well as seeing them reaching their goals and enjoying the music they love the most. I adapt the lessons to the student depending on his/her goal, requirements and I also let them express their own ideas and resolutions and why they want to learn to play violin. By these lessons I hope to help each child and adult enjoying music and acquiring multiple capacities as creativity, discipline and patience.

Jasper
Viola, Violin, Music History and Theory Lessons in The Hague
I have been a performing Violist since 2000 and a dedicated teacher since 2010. I am currently studying Early Music at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and have recently graduated from The Juilliard School, where I was the proud recipient of a Kovner Fellowship. I have taught students from 12-63 in Texas, New York, Brazil, and Hungary. I believe that learning an instrument is a vehicle by which one may learn anything and that music is fundamental to our humanity. I believe one is never too young, or old, to learn, and I am committed to sharing music.

I am an experienced violin/viola teacher recently arrived in the Netherlands from Australia. I have a Bachelor of Music (Honours) from the University of Melbourne and am currently completing a Bachelor of Early Music at the Royal Conservatoire at the Hague. I have been teaching for more than 10 years, and since 2013 was running a strings program at a steiner school in Tropical North Australia, as well as running a busy teaching studio and conducting community orchestras in the area. I love teaching and consider it one of my main passions. I enjoy working with students of all ages, and have taught several adult students of varying abilities, as well as children as young as four. I aim for my lessons to be enjoyable, inspirational, systematic, and holistic (covering many different musical aspects and skills in one lesson). I am a friendly and patient teacher who believes in all my students and helps them be the best they can be.
