Piano playing, Music Theory, Compose your own music

I am an experienced music teacher with studies at LCM (London College of Music) system, HKU Conservatory of Utrecht and BMus graduate of ArtEZ Conservatory in Zwolle.
I have teaching experience with children from 4 years old and adult beginners as well. I offer private lessons for music theory and piano. I have followed specific lessons for psychology and pedagogics for teachers.
My lessons include piano practise and theory. My approach is artistic, creative and always based to the needs of each individual student. Every student takes the time needed according to his level and age. Even from the very first lessons, we will start playing music!
I believe playing and experiencing how fun music can be is really important to keep the fun in the class, for that reason I use music fragments and even duets for all my students.

Evelina
Piano , Music Theory , ORFF lessons (specialized on the classical music)
I am a 25 year old Greek pianist and I have been living in the Netherlands for the last couple of years. I started teaching children and adults individually as well as in groups 8 years ago. According to your preferences we can create a lesson structure which combines technique and theory (chords, scales, harmony) but also repertoire that you enjoy and love. It is really important to be able to maintain your skills but enjoy the music the most as well . I can happily tailor the lessons to suit your skill level and personal taste ! Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions .

Singing Lessons (+Online)&more: Learn About Singing, Music(theory), Songwriting and Presenting: Be You!
Due Corona Now Online Lessons!!! Music is very special tool to express yourself in a creative way. When it comes to singing it gets even more personal, because the instrument is you! I am an experienced singer in jazz and popular music styles. Besides that I am a songwriter and arranger. I like to teach everyone in a personal way, that fits with your interests and talents. In the end I always apply different topics, such as singing technique, rhythm, songwriting, interpretation and presentation. * I like to teach you techniques and to give you tools that makes it easier to sing and to find your own sound. * Besides how to sing, I like to teach you about music, so you can apply your singing skills when you want to apply your musicality f.e. in a band, a choir etc. * I can teach you how to write songs, lyrics, melodies and chords. * I believe that interpretation and presentation are a big part of singing and also how they give you tools to sing better.

Anna
Beginner Piano and Music Theory Lessons and Singing (Fun and Interactive for Children and Adults alike)
I have studied classical piano for over 10 years and have completed my Royal Conservatory of Music studies in Canada. I have over 3 years of experience teaching singing and piano to young students (as early as age 4) to beginner adults at the City of Toronto Parks and Recreation Programs. I am a passionate, calm and patient teacher who wants to share my love of music with my fellow students. I am also keen on helping students improve and gain further confidence to perform. I will be teaching online and when it is suitable I will be able to teach on location.

Katerina
Cello lessons for all levels and ages, music, art.
Hey everyone, I am Katerina. I am a bachelor graduate of HKU Utrechts Conservatorium and I am offering cello lessons to pupils of all ages and levels. Music could be a valuable tool to express your musicality and explore the beautiful world of classical music or it could be a precious way to develop your kid’s skills and talents. In my lessons we could focus on learning how to play the cello from scratch, how to develop our technique and how to express our musicality. I also offer lessons to people that used to play cello and want to start again, any level is welcome!

Ana Martínez
Viool & Altvioolles in Utrecht. All ages and levels
I am Ana, a professional viola player who recently finished the Master in viola Performance at HKU Utrechts Conservatorium. I really enjoy playing but also sharing with other musicians (or future musicians) everything I have learned during my years of study. I have more than 5 years of experience working with people of all ages and levels, and I consider myself a very open and flexible teacher. I strongly believe in a learning process adapted to each student´s needs and interests.

Zara
Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions (97/100 for voice and 90/100 for piano). Besides, I am a holder of DipABRSM piano performance certificate and ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have been giving private singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 3 to 50 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques. Alongside with that, I spend a little time on every lesson for ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest of the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. For piano students who are at the beginning of their music journey, I use a lot of creative ways to teach basic knowledge such as rhythm and fingering. These creative ways include colorful presentation slides, arranging a tailor-made version of the songs they like and introducing fun games to keep them motivated. Each student will get something different because everyone is different. As an instructor of vocal masterclasses for choir students in Hong Kong, I see myself as the person who: -- opens the door of fundamental vocal techniques for the students; -- influences them to be confident; -- shows them the beauty of human voice and vocal music; -- teaches them to embrace the others without judgement. My way and attitude of teaching was proved to be successful with a lot of positive feedback. I tend to plan my classes in detail, and give notes to students every lesson. In this case, the students can follow the lessons easily and make the best out of their time. I do not make my students always say "yes" and "okay", I like to work with them and they are always welcome to tell me their needs. Since I grew up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong (Belilios Public School) and I have a lot of English-speaking students, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

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!

Lei
Piano Lessons, Music Theory, Aural Training and ABRSM Exam preparation
I have studied Piano Performance and Musicology at top universities in the UK and graduated with distinction. I have 6 years of teaching experience and an ABRSM Diploma certificate for Piano Performance. I design different lesson-plans for every single student depending on their levels, learning modes, interests, and abilities. You or your child will learn to become a complete musician, with not only performance techniques but also other highly transformative abilities: sightreading skills, aural skills, theory knowledge and above all, good taste in music. My schedule is very flexible. All levels welcome.

Professional classical violinist with teaching experience is offering violin lessons. In my class I pay attention to your technique and correct posture, but we do not miss the fun of playing music you like! We will adjust the lessons depending on your needs and wishes.

Illia
Classical and pop piano lessons, music theory and solfège (Russian method of training perfect pitch)
I have been playing the piano since I was five. I graduated from a specialized music school in Kiev and now I am a student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I teach both, classical and pop music. I have a very positive approach in teaching and will try to generate a motivating environment, as I understand that learning piano can be frustrating for some! My goal is to help you enjoy piano as well as seeing steady progress.

Johnathan
Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own intrinsic passion to the music they enjoy.
