About Me

My name is Stefano and I am 30 years old.
I am freelance viola player, I came from Italy to Rotterdam to get my Master Degree and pursue a career in the music field.
I started my musical education at 15 in Italy, studying Viola and Composition in Genova and La Spezia.

I moved to Rotterdam in 2016.

I am very curious and passionate about cultures, arts (like music, of course :)); I love reading books, watching a good movie and cooking.

Education

- Codarts University for the Arts, Master in Classical Music Performance, Viola, 2018
- Conservatorio G. Puccini, La Spezia, Diploma and Master Degree in Viola, 2015; Intermediate Degree in Composition, 2015;
- Liceo Classico Andrea D'Oria, Genova, Classical Studies High School degree, 2009

After graduating in Italy and moving my first step in youth orchestras (such as Italian Youth Orchestra, Orchestra Giovanile Luigi Cherubini conducted by Riccardo Muti, Orchestra del Teatro Olimpico di Vicenza), I moved to Rotterdam to complete my Master degree at Codarts, which I obtained in 2018 in Julia Dinerstein's class.
I had the luck to follow lessons and masterclasses by amazing renowned teachers, such as Alexander and Mikhail Zemtsov, members of the Rotterdam Phil, Maxim Rysanov, Simonide Braconi, Candida Thompson, Eva Stegeman.

Experience / Qualifications

As a freelance musician, I devote most of my time to chamber music and orchestra playing, collaborating with orchestras such La Toscanini di Parma, Sinfonia Rotterdam, FOI Bruno Bartoletti, Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, Ciconia Consort and others.

Always enjoyed learning new languages (Dutch is in the making!) and sharing my experience with other people.

Music has been the cornerstone in my education: it gave me a powerful tool to discover and develop myself, and to connect with the world; I believe that the joy and magic of music should be brought to everyone, as it gives to everyone the possibility to grow and become the best version of yourself, through self-expression and listening skills.

Music is a very international field of work, so I am used to bridge with different languages and culture, and to help colleagues to better understand Italian (for example, through Opera lyrics:) )
Have always been eager to learn an instrument? have you started in your school years and now want take again that violin repertoire? Do you want to start from beginning a new hobby with music? My name is Stefano and I am a freelance viola player. After studying viola and composition in Italy, I moved to Rotterdam to complete my Master degree at Codarts, which I obtained in 2018. As a freelance musician, I devote most of my time to chamber music and orchestra playing, collaborating with orchestras such La Toscanini di Parma, Sinfonia Rotterdam, FOI Bruno Bartoletti and others. I had the luck to follow lessons and masterclasses by amazing renowned teachers (such as Julia Dinerstein, Alexander and Mikhail Zemtsov, members of the Rotterdam Phil, Maxim Rysanov, Simonide Braconi) realising how the teacher-student relationship is so important and fundamental for the all-round growth of the individual. They taught me that, beside being a form of Art and a job opportunity, Music is pure enjoyment for both mind and soul; its strength is the possibility music gives you to learn about yourself, to express your emotions, to connect with other people, and all in the most enjoyable way ever, which is MAKING MUSIC! How cool is that? :) If you want to start discovering music with me, I offer Violin, Viola, Piano (basic to intermediate), Music Theory and Harmony classes. I offer lessons for: - beginners - amateurs - preparation to exams - tutoring Contact me to book your first music lesson!

Roberto
Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!

Ayumi
Italian classes in Rotterdam! For advanced, intermediate and beginner :)
I was born in Japan and moved to Italy from a young age, but I always practiced Japanese at home and regularly went to Japan for summer study programs. During my undergraduate studies in France, I started teaching part-time Japanese and Italian. Last year, I was studying at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, where I had the chance to work as a teacher again, together with some translation and interpreting services. I am very passionate about helping people with language learning processes and sharing with my students my knowledge of my two cultures! That's why I believe that language classes should follow the student's personality, interests, and objectives :) I am also prepared to assist for official language tests. When teaching, my main interest is always "how can I help you more"! Feel free to contact me! Looking forward to hearing from you, Ayumi

Learn Italian from a Roman artist in Rotterdam - order your coffee like a pro
Ciao! I have been teaching Italian for the past ten years. I have taught privately and at language schools like La Scuola Italiana del Greenwich Village in New York and ItalCultura, the school of the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago. During the first few lessons I will make sure you have the tools to pronounce and identify all the sounds of the Italian language. This step is essential! And it will make everything easier afterwards. When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling. When you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I will customize my materials to your interests, needs and desired pace. And because you are learning from a native Italian you will also learn about Italian culture and history. You will absorb a way of thinking, not just grammar rules. I speak a bunch of languages so I know a thing or two about how tedious language classes can be. My terrifying French teacher in middle school made us repeat the same fake dialogue from a really bad book ad nauseam, over and over and over again. Some of those dialogues are carved in my brain: “Bonjour, je m’appelle Richard Drapeau, je viens du Canada, je suis Canadien…” When I teach Italian I try to avoid all the things that I hated as a language student. We will use real songs, real literature, do real conversation and storytelling and we will go on “talking walks” because when you are engaging all your senses it is easier to keep your mind relaxed and to remember new words. I hold a degree in Lingue e Letterature Straniere (Foreign Languages and Literatures) from Università Roma Tre (equivalent to an American MA) and a Master’s of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. I wrote a thesis about translating a long epic poem by W. H. Auden and I tried to ride a horse across America.

Shantidevi
Italian Classes for Beginners, English-speaking Tutor
Hi, my name is Shanti and I’m a first year University Student at Erasmus University College. I am a native Italian speaker and I’m also fluent in English. My classes will focus on covering the basics of the Italian language as well as getting acquainted with Italian culture. My aim is to provide my students with enough grammatical and cultural knowledge to be able to hold a simple conversation. To teach I will mainly focus on conversational skills, however, I will also use handouts to teach grammatical concepts. I come from a family background of teaching, therefore I know most of the skills necessary to get a concept across to my students. My only hope is that by the end of our lessons, my students will have felt like they did a little trip to Italy and back :)

Emma
- Italian language; Italian course or conversation.
- I´m a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 8 years teaching experience. I am very patient and I love to make a relaxed and friendly class environment. I have qualifications and experience teaching at different levels and in different contexts. I can help the student to improve the oral, written, and comprehension skills. Most important is that each course is based on the needs, interests and availability of the student. - The method is mainly what is called communicative, aimed at stimulating the student to speak immediately and put the focus on the functional aspect of the language. For beginners, I usually follow a specific program, I prepare a course and for each lesson I send students the files that I scan from the various books. Also the lessons can be essentially developed as conversations on specific subjects.

Candice
Private Italian language lessons for all levels
Trained translator with five years of experience, particularly in international institutions in Europe and America, I offer tutoring courses for the Italian language for all levels, from primary to university. In addition to my Italian language diploma (Master 2), I have been immersed in this language from a young age, which means that I have mastered it perfectly. It is mainly a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the subject which poses a problem for him, but I also adapt to the specific requests of the pupils or the students. I can give grammar lessons as well as pronunciation lessons, oral comprehension, etc. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in Italian more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course can be done face-to-face at my home or by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)
