Private Piano and Music Theory lessons in Utrecht and surroundings

I'm Paula, 27 years old, from Barcelona and I have been a piano and music theory teacher for 6 years now. I learned in the Municipal Conservatory of Music in Barcelona (CMMB) and my goal is to help students master and enjoy music and piano playing as much as I do, because that's what music is about. Also, I can help the student prepare for specific challenges such as conservatory or any music school examinations.

I've been living in Utrecht for almost 3 years now and I would be pleased to help you, so if you are interested contact me!

Paula is good teacher of Spanish . Ready to adopt the class according to the needs of each person.
Paula is the best Spanish teacher I’ve ever had. She prepares ever class with great effort and always tries to adjusts the material to your level. Sometimes she even writes entire exercises herself to meet your standards and preferences. I really enjoy the lessons and am really proud of the knowledge I have taken away up until now!! If you are keen to learn some Spanish you should definitely reach out for her!! Saludooos!!:)
Had a great introductionary lesson!
I am Paula, 27 years old, from Barcelona, and I would be pleased to be your Spanish teacher here in the Netherlands :) I have been living in Utrecht for almost 3 years and I have been teaching here the whole time. I am very flexible with the schedule and the structure of the lessons since I try to adapt to each person's needs. I have a few useful books that I follow for the lessons, normally one that provides the main structure and the others for extra exercises and games. - If you are a beginner we will use different materials to learn vocabulary, first useful expressions and basic grammar while, every now and then, having fun with some games. I always give homework and (if adult) I expect the learner to be independent in this sense. Send me a message if you are interested :) Hasta pronto! Paula

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.

Alberto
Trumpet lessons in Utrecht with Alberto. Many genres to EXPLORE!
Playing the trumpet is very exciting! Are you looking to start learning the trumpet? Perhaps you already play for some years but want to improve your technique, breathing skills, or learn a new genre? I am Alberto, and I will help you achieve your musical goals with a tailor-made program. My approach is to find suitable music for your technical and expressive level and work specifically on the challenges that it represents. Music is for everyone! Kids and adults Perhaps you want to surprise your couple playing a bossa-nova. Or maybe you want to become the next solo trumpet at the Concertgebouw Orchestra. Everyone has different goals when playing the trumpet, it is my job to help you achieve them. If you don't have clear objectives yet, I will be guiding you and exploring the possibilities of trumpet playing with you. Also, especially for kids, I can help you find a nice pTrumpet. They are lightweight plastic trumpets made with great quality and available in different colours! Good technique, and a lot of fun The most important lesson I have learned in my career is that making good music is only possible when you enjoy the process. Of course, good technical skills are crucial but studying exercises that you find boring is not the best way up to proficiency. Instead, finding your unique best approach to improve your skills will get you to the moon! For improving your tempo awareness, would you practice with a metronome or would you rather use a drumbeat sample? Your health is important! Body awareness and breathing techniques Not only wind players benefit from doing sport, acquiring good posture habits, and being aware of their breath. It helps everyone in every single aspect of their lives. A good breathing technique will let you play easily, run for a longer period of time, or sleep better at night. On the other hand, body posture awareness helps with productivity and saves money on the fysio. Life hacks that you cannot miss! Improvisation and open-mindedness That very feeling of creating art on the spot. Only a few experiences can relate to it. When we explore and create, our flow state gets triggered. We are fully immersed in the activity and the world surrounding us vanishes. If you like, we will go on a journey discovering new emotions, colours, sounds, harmonies, textures, styles, genres. And improvising on them. Let's get creative! Technology in music. Recording and producing Let's face it, we are in the 21st century and the possibilities of technology are endless in the audiovisual field. Recording for auditions, producing and releasing your first single, live looping, use of effects... You can learn all that with me. Are you curious? Book your lesson now! Ok but, how will my lessons look like? Breathing practice is one of the best ways to start warming up. It will take the first 5 minutes of your lesson and your body will be prepared to start playing. Then, we would go into working on your specific goals. Perhaps, we are practicing music that demands improvement on the higher register, maybe we are working out different scales for improvisation, or it might be the case that you want to discover a new genre and go deep into it. Reading music, ear training, phrasing, music theory, buzzing and embouchure position, articulations (legato, staccato, accents), dynamics... These are only an indication of what we might work on. The final minutes of your lesson will be the moment to relax. We can get creative, play some tunes together, improvise, or even talk about a specific topic like musicality, art, creativity, technique, theory or the music industry for instance. Group lessons and ensembles Making music alone is fun, but playing with people brings it to the next level! If you like the idea, I will bring you together with other fellow students for technique workshops, jam sessions, duo with piano, or whatever other activity we might find interesting for you. When and where I offer flexibility in my schedule so your trumpet lessons fit into your agenda. I can come to your place, or perhaps you prefer visiting my teaching room in Utrecht. I will have some coffee or tea waiting for you. Online trumpet classes Online has become a new trend. I will help you set up your equipment and focus on what is important, music. Book a lesson now! Alberto, the eclectic brass player based in Utrecht I am a brass performer and teacher that has performed in classical and modern music ensembles for more than 15 years. During this time, I attended innumerable masterclasses and had great fun in various professional experiences such as performing at Tomorrowland, an avant-garde music festival in Malta, or the great symphonic masterpieces with symphonic orchestras in Spain and the Netherlands. I hold a bachelor's and a master's degree in music performance and a master's degree in music education during my official studies in Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Nowadays, you can still find me teaching brass in the Utrecht area, composing and producing my own music at home, playing tuba with a symphonic orchestra, trombone in a reggae band, or improvising trumpet over a techno track.

•Learn how to play saxophone, improvise on your favorite song and bases of Music Armony
I'm 24 years old and I joined the world of Music when I was 6. I got the degree in Cassical Saxophone 2 years ago in the Conservatory of Music of Mantova (Italy) and now I'm studying Jazz&Pop in the Conservatory of Utrecht (Netherlands). I've played many concert in Italy and Europe with many different formations: classic Orchestra and Ensemble (Ensemble of saxophone of Mantova), quartet of saxophones (Sax Fever), many different bands, Big Band (Dixiebell Orchestra of Garda, Utrecht BigBand)... •THE GOAL of my lessons is make people enjoy this beautiful form of art. Like when you sing playing saxophone required a total connection between our body and our mind with the horn. As our clarinet friends always remind us, Saxophone is not one of the most difficult wind intrument but an improper embrasure or a wrong breathing can create a wall between our musical ideas and the instrument. •In my lessons I want to work as first on the sound. If the sound is good Saxophone has the power to enchant audience with just one note. Playing long note is a good exercise in this sense, and more natural and relaxed is the embrasure and the body, more easily will be making a good sound. •We'll improve the knowledge of Music Armony working directly on the songs that you love. We will start by transcribe them by ear and then we'll go deeper into the armony and chords. The aim is start to improvise on them and create your own repertoire. •On the other side we will work on reading music. This skill has a primary importance if you want to join all kind of band in the city. •If you are a student that want to enter in the conservatory, classic or jazz, I have a lot of experience in these kind of auditions, so we can focus our practise toward this porpuse. •Music make the mind free and EVERYBODY can play, it's just a matter of practise and listening. If you think that Saxophone is your instrument What are you waiting for!?!? Let's play some Music togheter;)

Saxophone Lessons - The pleasure of learning the best musical instrument!
The three goals I have as a teacher is first to have fun with it and have a light pleasant lesson that is something we both look forward to. Second,is to convey in the best way what being a musician amateur or professional and performing music is about and finally to help students with understanding the saxophone, the endless possibilities of the instrument with its different sound colors, dynamics and wide range of techniques but also how simple and enjoyable it can be but demanding when attempting to master every detail. For me, it's the best instrument in the world. The lesson consists of different parts to cover in every lesson a number of different aspects of playing to keep improving every week. See you in class!
