About Me

Spanish cellist Maximiliano moved to Amsterdam in 2008 to study with Maarten Mostert and Dmitry Ferschtman. From 2010 started his studies in early music and baroque cello with Viola de Hoog while at the same time he met the cellist Anner Bijlsma. The relationship with Bijlsma involved not only lessons and advices through a period of nine years but also brought him an unforgettable mark. In 2016 he was awarded, together with other cellists, the Anner Bijlsma Award, a prize given at the Cello Biënnale Amsterdam for his research about the origins of the violoncello in Italy.

Master degree in Early music, Conservatorium van Amsterdam (AHK) 2014

Did you always want to learn cello from zero and never had the opportunity to start, or do you want to improve your already learned skills? Then I can definitely help you! I am a Spanish cellist based in Amsterdam since 2008 with more than 10 years experience of teaching. I offer lessons for all ages and levels, in English, Dutch and Spanish. Here is a small resume of the lessons I offer: 1. Cello and/or baroque cello lessons: All levels. The lessons will be focused on two basic elements: Technic of the instrument and developing musical skills. 2. Music theory: Beginners. Basics of music, such as reading notes, rules and analysis. This field is as important as learning the instrument for it complements the process in music performance. 3. Music History: All levels The lessons will give a full understanding of the historical development of music, with a complete historical context of the arts, politics and society. These lessons are a key point to students of conservatories and musicians to complement their music knowledge.

Elisa
violin, viola, music theory lessons, group couching and personalized programs!
The lessons I offer at the moment (2021 covid times) are hold through zoom (I am flexible to use other platforms), and I will advice the student from beforehand on how to prepare their computers for the best audio quality for the session. In my experience, this online teaching works surprisingly good, and these are definitely the best times to start making that thing you never found time to start with but you would love to do. So I really encourage you to send me an email and we will plan what works better for you! -Violin lessons: All levels & any age. For beginners I complement the violin playing with basic music knowledge needed for the playing. -Viola lessons: All levels & any age. For beginners I complement the violin playing with basic music knowledge needed for the playing. -Music theory: From the basics to advanced analysis and harmony. General music culture or even history if interested. Solfege, ear training and theory. About me: I'm a young musician from the south of Spain. I started making music at the age of three, and I picked up my main instrument, the viola, at the age of seven. Currently, I keep on my development in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where I study with the teacher Francien Schatborn. Besides her, I have received lessons from great teachers such as Nobuko Imai, Joaquín Riquelme, Jonathan Brown, Lilli Maijala, Bruno Giuranna or Laure Gaudron in between others. As a very experienced student, I feel able to recognize the skills a teacher needs and I try to bring them into myself when I am in front of my students. I like to prepare every lesson, each of them thought for every different student, and I love helping them keeping on track.

Adrien
Private saxophone lessons, jazz and classical, for all levels.
Graduated from a Master's degree and a double Bachelor degree from the Conservatorium of Amsterdam, I can help you develop your technical skills on the saxophone, your harmonical and rhythmical knowledge, your understanding and improvisation skills, through a pedagogical method that follows the student's aspirations, starting from wherever the student is, and moving on from there step by step. I address my lessons to all levels, from complete beginners, to those who have never heard of music.

Nata
A simple guide to beginning and mastering the violin and building healthy posture.
Hello! I have extensive experience with students of all ages as a teacher of violin playing which are focused on student interests. I'm studying in Conservatorium van Amsterdam on my final year of Bachelor's Degree. I teach for last couple of years in Amsterdam and I had intensive teaching courses to help me become a professional teacher.

Chris
Songwriting: establish or refine a writing routine
I help beginning, intermediate and advanced songwriters establish and/or refine their songwriting routine. Using my own book on the subject (no extra charge) and a variety of interesting assignments, I work with you to make you the best songwriter you can be! Some basic music theory and instrumental skills are needed, but I can also help you get this under your belt.

Wilma
Cello & composition lessons in Zaandam and Amsterdam
I am a professional cellist and have loved this instrument from up close for most of my life. I have a lot of experience teaching cellists of all levels between the ages of 5 and 75, and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for this gorgeous instrument with others. In my lessons, I look for an approach that suits each student individually and has lots of attention for the wishes and needs of my students. From the very first lesson, we make music together, and explore ways of allowing the naturally beautiful sound of the cello to emerge. Whether you'd like to learn the cello, polish up your skills, or further develop yourself as a musician, I would be delighted to accompany you on this journey. I teach in a spacious studio in Zaandam (Wednesdays and Thursdays), and in an atmospheric studio in Amsterdam (Mondays). Are you curious, or would you like to know more? Feel free to get in touch.

Gosse
Piano lessons via the best and fastest way to Rome!
Do you want to teach (electric) piano, keyboard or synthesizer? Then you have come to the right place! Gosse (1989) has been giving piano lessons for more than 10 years and we are proud to announce that almost all students who start the lessons actually continue. The lessons are primarily focused on fun and development. He knows from experience that the most important ingredients for learning to play the piano as effectively as possible are: 1: The pleasure of playing The fun is increased by learning to play numbers that the student experiences as beautiful or fun and that bring the right degree of challenge. Gosse mainly specializes in Pop, Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Funk, Bossa-nova, Latin and Light classical styles. Learn to play your favorite songs! 2: Learning in the way that best suits the student There are three different ways in which someone can learn to play the piano: sheet music, by ear and (the relatively new way) through software programs such as Synthesia. The correct method differs from person to person. 3: Knowing the music theory / shortcuts The three ways you can learn to play the piano described above help you press the right keys at the right time. But it can be easier. Namely by knowing the underlying music theory and / or the shortcuts! Gosse also teaches music production (songwriting and producing). He is most specialized in the Logic Pro and Ableton studio programs. He also helps vocalists who want to accompany themselves on the piano. Feel free to contact us for a trial lesson, for a more detailed version of the above 3 points or if you want to know more!

Sandra
Music lessons: Guitar, musical education and music theory, choir, therapeutic music practice or special education
I think it is important to learn a good musical basis adapted to your student's needs and skills. I am a guitar teacher and a school musician so you can learn everything in the music field. Classical guitar, song accompaniment with vocals, singing groups for adults and children etc. Also pupils who need special guidance or a disability are very welcome. Fun and fulfillment in and through music are the most important starting points. Home schooling is also possible.

Toby
Drum lessons in city of Amsterdam, all ages and abilities.
My name is Toby. I am offering drum lessons to people of any age or skill level in the city of Amsterdam. I have played and loved the drums since I was 6 years old, and completed grades 1-8 with Trinity Guildhall. I was taught for 12 years in England, and I aim to pass on what I have learned from my education and playing experience to new students. I believe that good technique must be practiced in order to access the range of musical expression possible with the drums. I aim to teach it comprehensively and practice it with students rigorously, so that they can develop their creative vocabulary and ultimately apply this to their own practice and playing. Learning how to listen is essential to playing an instrument. I aim to develop students’ listening and ability to play with sensitivity and feeling, something that is essential when playing with other musicians. I ultimately want to inspire students to make music. I consider this the most thrilling and creative reason to learn an instrument. Sessions will be in English, and held at a hired practice space in the city. If you are interested in a session please do get in touch, I would love to hear from you and get started!

Pedro
Guitar and music theory classes. Online lessons also
I am a brazilian musician graduated in classical guitar, with experience in jazz and brazilian music. Everything from bossa nova, samba, choro and latin music in general is my speciality. Have been teaching for 15 years now, i developed a way of teaching music based on what the student needs to develop his/her potential. It can be more practical and playfull, or theoretical and methodical.

Marco
Music Production and Theory: Everything you need to know.
My name is Marco, and I am an Italian composer and sound designer working and living in Amsterdam. I studied Classical and Experimental Composition at the Conservatory, and then Communication Sciences and Technologies, and Sound Design at the University. After that, I spent the last 8 years producing music and sounds for advertisement, short movies, tv shows, documentaries, theatre, art installations, and so on. This gave me a broad knowledge of how to write music in every different style, and how to do that fast. This class starts with my experience, but I really want the students to build their own personalized plan, choosing on which of these areas to focus on: -Film Scoring -Sound Design -Music Theory -Arranging for Orchestra -Solfège -Introduction to Piano -Introduction to Music Softwares (DAWs) and Plugins -Electronic Music and Beats Production If you need to take lessons at certain times excluded from my timetable feel free to contact me anyways and let's see what we can arrange. Hope to hear from you soon! Cheers :)

Piano lesson for beginners and advanced students - all age levels
I am a Vietnamese pianist and I would love to share nice music to you with a friendly environment. I have finished my Master in piano specialisation in Royal Conservatory of Liège, and now I'm following piano accompaniment in Royal Conservatory of Brussels. During my studies, I have joined many concerts, making some recording, also working in both classical and contemporary music. Combining my 10 years of experience in teaching, I would be happy to share all my knowledge and enjoy the music together!

Joel
Piano Lessons for Beginners and Amateurs. Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Own Compositions.
I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master's Degree at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 6 years now, I have been teaching students of all levels between 5 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!
