Bandoneon Lessons - Learning from the instrument's technique

Bandoneon is a very well know instrument for playing tango, in fact it's part of the genre's DNA. However,
not many people know that the instrument was constructed in Germany and some people even say it was supposed to be used as an portable organ.

This means that the Bandoneon has a technique that is independent of any genre. This technique is not found by coping other instruments such as the organ or keyboard but through the development of the nature of the instrument. This is mainly the importance of the air and how it is affected by the pulling and the movement we make when we play.

Of course Tango will be an important axis of the lessons as it very important for the development of the instrument and for specific techniques but Tango won't be the starting point as it's not the best pedagogical tool for learning the instrument. But no worries, we'll get there ;)

Have you ever wondered how a Gregorian chant, Bach, Mozart & Chopin might sound in the bandoneon? The results might surprise as you would get a very different sound from the one you are originally used to. Also, we can try and use the bandoneon for different and new genres, who knows what we might discover from the instrument along the way?

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)! We can work on anything you would like to improve; technique, music theory, accompaniment, songwriting/composing, improvising...

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 :)

Classical Piano & Music Theory lessons for all levels
The focus of this class is to learn how to play the piano but most important how to make music. Music is a language that expresses our feelings & ideas and connects us with other people but also with ourselves. Together we will can work on the basic principles and tools to play the piano, setting a healthy technique but also cultivate your personal sense of music. Further on, we can explore new repertoire and unknown composers, refine your playing and learn how to deal with difficulties, discuss about interpretation issues and even work on your performance on stage. With music theory, we can dive into the alphabet and syntactic of music: the world harmony, rhythm, solfege and analysis.

Bardia
Violin lessons and theory lessons for all ages, and skill level!
Hello everyone, my name is Bardia an experienced and enthusiastic violin teacher in Rotterdam. The key words for my teaching are fun and personal development. What matters the most to me is to have students feeling at ease with my teaching and feeling motivated after a lesson. This is why we will be playing lots of pieces together in duos, trying to develop complicity at your own pace, no rush ever. Last but not least, I also want to train and instruct students to reach a high mental level so as to express themselves free from constraints and stresses. Through a personalized method, tailored to your needs and wishes, we will cover together all sorts of repertoire, ranging from Baroque and Classical Music to more modern styles like Pop. Lessons can be given in English, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, French and Farsi. I teach at all levels from beginners to advanced with particular focus on amateur players. I graduated from Rotterdam Conservatory in 2017 and I am currently finishing my Master in Early Music in Utrecht Conservatory.

De saxofoon als een verlengstuk van je lichaam: uitdrukking geven aan je gevoelens met zijn prachtige geluid!
Hallo! Welkom op mijn Super Prof profiel! Laat me mijn passie voor het onderwijzen van mijn instrument uitdrukken en het grootste belang benadrukken van het ontwikkelen van een diep begrip van geluid en ritme. We zullen een uitgebreide reis beginnen die oortraining omvat door melodieën te zingen, het verkennen van toonladders, het duiken in harmonie met behulp van de piano, en zelfs een beetje muziektheorie als je geïnteresseerd bent. Onze focus zal voornamelijk liggen op het aanscherpen van onze luistervaardigheid, omdat dat het sleutelelement is. Let op dat onze leerbenadering niet draait om het lezen van muzieknotatie of het vertrouwen op geschreven materiaal. We willen genieten en als we ooit ervoor kiezen om muziek te transcriberen, kunnen we de tegenovergestelde weg nemen. We zullen leren het ritme te voelen en het vervolgens in geschreven vorm om te zetten. Onderwerpen Ontwikkeling van het geluid; Gehoortraining; Weegschalen (met je instrument en met de stem); Akkoorden (ook gespeeld op piano); Solo Transcripties; Ritme; Geschiedenis van muziek; Muziek theorie Muziek lezen Bedankt. Davide

Accordion lessons for all levels in Rotterdam or via Skype
My name is Helena Sousa and I am a professional musician. I have done my Bachelor and Master of Music in Spain and France, respectively, and now I work as a freelance musician in The Netherlands since December 2017. As a hard-working and active person, I am encouraged to show how music works and how it is essential in life, doing different activities with the student such as listening to music, doing body percussion with different rhythms, singing or playing the instrument. All of these are important activities to develop the skills of the student such as coordination, attention or discipline, along with the most important thing: enjoying music as a fundamental part of life. I offer accordion lessons for students of all levels in Rotterdam, as well as Skype lessons. Thank you!

Valentina
Have fun by learning how to play the clarinet and discovering how the music works!
Do you want to have fun learning how to play the most beautiful instrument in the world or improve your skills with it? I'd be delighted to do it with you! I'm a classical clarinetist, I have two masters (recently graduated at Codarts) and different experience in orchestra, chamber music and teaching! My goal as a teacher is to stimulate the student to study in order to be at the disposal of music and not a passive player as can happen many times when you undertake a new study. That is why I like to play with my students and organize little private concerts and try-out. Concerning the music theory lessons, I am not going to bore you with long and incomprehensible explanations! We will study it in a fun and effective way! I've been studying music since I'm five years old and I started with the Kodaly method that made me approach music in a very natural way! I hope to see you soon!
