Experienced cello teacher gives private lessons to all ages, both online and in person

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Hello!
I am Irene, a graduated Master student at HKU Utrecht Conservatory, and I offer cello lessons to people of all ages, both online and in person.
I have more than 5 years of experience teaching both adults and children, in private lessons, group lessons and music schools.
I have also taught music theory and piano to beginners.
The lessons could work in different ways: regular lessons every one or two weeks, or just a couple of times, etc. I have had students that only wanted to learn a bit, and I also have students that have continued for some years with me . I could also adjust the duration of the lessons from 30mins (especially for younger kids) to 1h.
The lessons can be in English and Spanish, and hopefully Dutch in the future! (work in progress!)
I give personalized attention and methods to each one of my students, as everyone is different!

If you have questions, please contact me!
I hope to see you soon :)

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been playing the cello since I was 8 years old (more than 16 years ago!), and it has given me wonderful experiences.
I am from a very small village in the Spanish countryside, and thanks to the music I have lived in many different places, including Valencia, Dublin and Utrecht.
Recently I graduated with a Master in Cello Performance from HKU Utrecht, with Prof. Timora Rosler.
I have played in different orchestras and ensembles and with incredible people, some of whom are friends for life.
In addition to this, I have been teaching (both in private lessons and music schools) for more than 5 years now, and I have had over 20 students overall. Some of them have been with me for more than 3 years!
I am a very professional teacher and I really care about my students, not only that they become good cellists, but also that they find joy in music and have a good time practicing!
Let's discover the fun in music together!

Private cello lessons for all age groups and experience levels
I offer private cello lessons to people of all ages and levels. As the principle cello teacher at the International School Utrecht, I have a lot of experience with young people and love to encourage creativity from a young age . During a lesson, I like to focus on playing and aim to have my students making music as quickly as possible. I incorporate a lot of chamber music into my lessons, developing a sense of fun and freedom in my students. This class is suitable for anyone with the desire to make music!

Cello, Piano and Music lessons in Utrecht. All levels and different genres!
My goal as a music teacher is to make the students able to experience all types of emotions by playing music, understanding the musical process from its roots with a creative approach. My lessons are designed according to the specific needs of each student and the main objective is to guide them in the optimal direction to achieve their full potential in a fun way. Thereby, the instrument becomes a tool to understand what making music really means and will be a way for the student to express his emotions. My approach to the lessons can provide a lot of creativity, fun and originality. How will my lessons look like From the first lesson, the student will start making music. We will begin learning the basic concepts of music, developing listening and rhythmic skills with fun exercises. Lessons will also be focused on learning the basics of music theory, creating a solid technical base and paying special attention to having a relaxed and healthy body posture. My academic and professional experience has helped me create a teaching method where improvisation is an essential tool for the student. I enjoy working on it from the beginning since it is a perfect way to develop musicality. Playing different music genres together As a musician, another of my sources of inspiration is to get to know and to learn from different styles, playing and experimenting with music from the classical period until the most avant-garde style. During the lessons, we will play pop, jazz, classical and many other styles. I would like to explore the instrument with the student in a fun way, growing, improving, and discovering new ways of making music together. During the lessons the students and I could play together, either playing some duos with the cello or accompanying them with the piano, which is an activity that I really enjoy. Playing together with more people and with a polyphonic instrument from the beginning will give the student clues to learn how to play in ensembles and listen to all the different voices that can be part of any musical composition.

[Skype, Face Time, Zoom] Online cello lessons from the teacher Frankfurt/Darmstadt/Mannheim, beginner-advanced
I study at the Musikhochschule Mannheim and at the Blackmore Academy Berlin. I have worked both as an orchestra musician with renowned orchestras such as the Hr-Symphonieorchester and the Museumsorchester Frankfurt and also as a soloist with the Geringas Chamber Orchestra. I have attended many international courses with, among others: David Geringas, Reinhard Latzko, Jan Ickert and Martti Rousi. I teach in German, Russian and English. I design the lessons according to the student's wishes. I am particularly interested in further development in order to cope with increasingly difficult tasks, for example the section leader in the orchestra. I attach great importance to literature from all stylistic epochs from baroque to modern, including popular music. I like to teach beginners according to Gabriel Koeppen's cello school, volumes 1-3 and the Suzuki method. I regularly arrange works for my students' cello sambles and, at the request of the students, music that has not yet been rewritten for cello.

Sergio
Higher Graduate (with masters) in Cello and Conducting teaches music at all levels
My teaching method is scrupulously adapted to each student I have, regardless of the subject to work on (musical language, cello, music history, analysis, conducting, etc.) I always apply the Belgian teaching model, where I trained with my master's degrees in Conducting (Antwerp) and Historical Cello (Brussels). According to this model, the main thing is a living and practical teaching, taking understanding and not memory as the main learning engine.

Ilona
Result-oriented professional cello instructor with 11+ years of experience
Hi everyone! My name is Ilona. I am a professional cellist and a cello teacher with a Master’s degree. My teaching experience is more than 11 years, with 3 years experience of online teaching. Online learning how to play cello is completely acceptable for all levels and ages from 8 years old.  Either you are a Zero Beginner or you are preparing to pass entry exam to conservatory - I will explain you how to practice to become more effective on cello. My current students range in age from 8 to 51 years old and come from all over the world. I always work for results, so our lessons may be longer than an hour at times simply because we haven't completed the lesson plan (with no extra pay). Before you begin learning the cello with me, you should understand two important concepts: when you play the cello, you use your body (arms, fingers) to create sound, and you use your soul and emotions to create music. We'll start by learning how to make sounds, which you'll later use to express your emotions. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. I am currently only teaching online.

“The cello is like a beautiful woman who has not grown older, but younger with time, more slender, more supple, more graceful.” — Pablo Casals “I am dying: it's a beautiful word. Like the long slow sigh of the cello: dying. But the sound of it is the only beautiful thing about it.” — Sonya Hartnett “Actually, music gave me the support when I needed it. I would never have gone to college unless I'd gotten a piano scholarship. And now I'm so glad I got to learn to play the cello, which is a different experience, you're flexing a different muscle, but it's beautiful because it is music.” — Jamie Foxx
