Great lesson! David explains everything very well and is patient and professional! Really enjoyed it!
Excellent teacher, looking forward to the next lesson!
I am a native Spanish speaker (from Spain) and also a language enthusiastic. I combine the use of some vocabulary books with speaking practice (which I think it's the most important thing). So we would focus on topics from the books, as a starting point, and then practice speaking, using the vocabulary in real life conversations. Contact me for more information or any other question, I will be happy to answer you.

Giannis
Drum lesson from passionate young Greek drummer, student at the Royal conservatory of the Hague!!
Teaching should always be fun!! Hey!! I am Giannis. I am a Greek jazz drummer and I study in the Royal conservatory of the Hague. In the past, I have taught in private lessons where I try to communicate my love about music to my students as my teachers did for me. Lessons for all levels and ages!! For beginners: - We work on songs that the student wants to learn and we develop the sense of rhythm and the appropriate technique to play the drums. For intermediate level: - We work on getting a sufficient drummer with good tempo, developed vocabulary and wide repertoire.

Eduardo
Saxophone, Clarinet, Piano and Music Theory classes taught by graduates in Music Performance
Hi! My name is Eduardo, a professional musician and long-time music teacher. I am offering physical and online lessons in Music Theory, Improvisation and Instrument. #Harmony #Composition #Solfège #Saxophone #Clarinet #Piano Lessons are addressed to every student profile, regardless of age, level of expectations (no matter if it is seen as a hobby or rather if the individual is getting prepared for official Conservatory auditions, etc.). We will play and/or focus on what the student is willing to deepen into (whatever music style they are interested in, more theoretical aspects or rather practical ones), trying to get the maximum profit of the employed time, and prioritizing the actual learning of the person as the main factor for their motivation. I obtained my Jazz Music Master's program at the Prince Claus Conservatoire of Groningen in June 2022. Previously, in 2018, I graduated from my music Bachelor's at the Conservatorio Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona (Spain).

•Learn how to play saxophone, develop your musicality and build your own repertoire (for all kind of music and levels)
“Don't play the saxophone. Let it play you.” - Charlie Parker - Everyone of us has is own musicality, we have just to let her come out. The goal of my lesson is to let you discover how much fun and passion music can gives. Music has no age: you're never too young or too old to tell yourself through a musical instrument. If you love and recognize yourself in the warm sound of the saxophone then what are you waiting for!? Let's start this wonderful Music journey Together :) “Whatever you think can't be done, somebody will come along and do it.” – Thelonious Monk SAXOPHONE LESSON: To learn how to transfer your musical ideas into the saxophone is required a total connection between your body and your mind with the horn. That's why for the first part of every lesson will be focused on the Sound and the saxophone technique. You need to learn how to build your own saxophone tone and how to sing into the instrument. This process can take some weeks for really beginners but it'll show you how the musical practice can positive effect your all body and emotions, as well as your creativity. In order to make your music journey more fun and personal my lessons will be based on your music interests and purpose (learn how to read music, improvisation ecc…) During this journey together we'll build your own repertoire of songs that most represent you, which we'll dedicate the second part of the lesson. FOR NERDY ;) For those who wants to go deeper into the world of saxophone I'll organize some special 'listening section' focus on the the role of Saxophone in the music history and in the different kind of music. From the classical repertoire (Gershwin, Bizet, Milhaud, Rota, Bernstein, Steve Reich, Michael Nyman…) passing through the more popular: Blues, Jazz (Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly, Sonny Rollins…), latin , rock&roll, Pop until nowadays. We'll listen to the milestones of the great composers and performers that have made the history of this fantastic instrument. I'm sure It'll be a journey of discovery the beauty of the music to which this instrument has made, and a big inspiration for you to grow the passion toward this amazing form of art.

Piano lessons for reading sheet music, learning favorite pieces, improvising and more.
Piano lessons for reading sheet music, learning favorite pieces, improvising and more. In a very calm and friendly environment, the classes are organized and planned according to the students goals/wishes. I can teach you about harmony, how to construct and play melodies and whatever interest in music you might have. While improving the piano technique, I will make sure the student enjoys the lesson and has a sense of improvement every week.

Jakob
Piano in all styles, music theory, composing, arranging, improvising, playing with other people in a group...
Hey! My name is Jakob, I'm from Slovenia and I've studied classical piano and am currently in second year bachelor for jazz piano. I played in many different bands, so whether it's jazz, classical, pop or any other kind of music, I will guide you through different ways to approach music and practicing (all of them will be fun and what YOU really want/need)!

João
Piano and music lessons (Intoduction to piano Jazz, Bossa Nova...)
Music is in our everyday life, wheather we realise it or not. To go in to music and start learning it is as natural as learning how to walk, cicle, or even breathe! Whichever the instrument, It is one of the most beautifull experiences we can give to ourselves, bound to take us to new and undiscovered places. My name is João, I'm from Portugal, I'm 24 years of age, and I'm doing my bachelor in jazz at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. I've been playing piano all my life, and can't wait to share what I've learned with you! I teach piano to all ages from beguinner to intermedeate. Although I have a program, I will let you create your own path, taking in to acccount the several landmarks I create acording to your level and needs. Teaching is all about the individuality of each person I work with, and as a student myself, I find it to be one of the most important points in teaching. I focus mainly in jazz music, but since music theory and harmony respect all kind of music, I am open to every sugestion you bring in to the class. The lessons will focus on learning music through listening, as well as introducing the student to music theory, and reading scores. Whether you like Pop, Jazz, Bossa Nova or Classical, all music come from the same place, so let's dive in!

Rhythm – Timing precision/freedom, polyrhythms, odd meters, and coordination. Theory, Harmony, and Composition – Using examples from Classical to Pop and Jazz music to learn how to use harmony in a functional but yet free and creative way. Improvisation – How to improvise melodically over different chord schemes but also broader aspects such as building and breaking tension waves and telling an artistic story. Song Learning - Just learn how to play your favorite song and jam with your favorite bands.

Marcello
Drum lessons for all styles and levels from a KonCon graduate!
Hi! I'm Marcello and I come from Italy. I've been playing the drums for more than half of my life and a few years ago I moved to the Netherlands to pursue a music education and to establish myself in The Hague as a professional musician and teacher. I graduated from the Royal Conservatoire and minored in classical percussion in the summer of 2022 and I am currently studying drums and composition in the Master programme. I usually focus on the technical aspects of music, but the lesson plan will vary according to the student's needs. We can get as serious about playing as you wish! So I advise you to have an idea of what you want to play but, if that's not the case, I'll be happy to share my passion and my favourite artists with you!

Percussion for ensemble members and drummers - beginning and intermediate
My expertise is in percussion instruments as parts of ensembles or bands. I am a university student from the United States with 5 years of performance and professional experience. I have performed using/have knowledge in the drum set, toms, marimba/xylophone, concert snare, concert bass, and other auxiliary percussion instruments. I also am capable of teaching a number of genres ranging from classical to jazz to rock and latin music. These are targeted for students with any number of goals, whether they are improving technique or learning sight reading or maybe learning particular scores and songs. I particularly empathize with students or others who need to juggle music with other commitments, therefore I am open to and knowledgable in working under those conditions. I work with all ages and with students at the beginner and intermediate levels.

Stella
Jazz Harmony - Understand the How's and Why's. Compose and improvise!
Knowledge in jazz harmony is a very important tool when going into jazz improvisation and composition. When I really started to understand how things work and why they work, the way I started to use harmony really changed. It is not easy to explain the way music works, however, I want to share the way I was taught jazz harmony myself, as I feel it has been an incredibly valuable tool for me, and will be for others.

Branko
Drum Lessons for all levels - all styles considered!
Do you want to play in a band, play for fun at home with friends, or become a proffecional drummer? Come for a lesson in my studio and see what you'd like to learn. If you like a certain style, we will focus on it and develop your playing towards your taste. I've been playing, teaching and studying drums for over 15 years now. I take it very seriously and try to tailor my teaching to every student that I have. I can use my experience as a proffecional musician to make you progress fast and focus on things not every teacher knows from books. In this course we will focus on technique as well as creativity and improvisation (one of the most enjoyable aspects of playing drums). Do you have any other percussion instrument you'd like to expand your knowledge on? I can offer you percussion lessons as well since I have a lot of experience in playing percussion as well. If you want to study with me I can provide a stable program for development for fast results including scores, exercises, etc. About me: As well as teaching, I'm mainly a performer of music - I've been playing drums with different bands as well as classical percussion for more than 15 years now in many different settings. In the last years of my development I've taken a closer look to jazz, pop, hip hop and rock music. I can use my experience to find good qualities in my students and develop them as much as possible. I hope you consider me to be your teacher :)
