Cosimo
- Saxophone lesson by conservatory student for beginners -
Always dreamed of playing the saxophone? If you live in Rotterdam, you now have the chance! The lessons are based on exercises that I will prepare myself especially for you. If your level gets a little higher, we will also treat some extra material (such as arrangements, duets and / or studies) that is useful for learning good fingering. In a short time you can honk your favorite pieces on this beautiful instrument! I am a Dutchman who grew up in Italy where I started in 2010 with saxophone lessons from teachers at the conservatory in Siena. I have been following the Codarts jazz training course in Rotterdam for three years. I have lessons from nationally and internationally renowned musicians, such as Tineke Postma, Benjamin Herman, Simon Rigter and Ben Van De Dungen. I also had the opportunity to study in the beautiful Barcelona for six months at the ESMUC conservatory, with Gorka Benitez and all kinds of other fantastic musicians (Ignasi Terraza, Mario Rossy, David Xirgu, Eladio Reinon). I have also been active as a teacher for some time.

Luisa
Cello lessons in Rotterdam! Find your perfect private cello tutor in Rotterdam. All ages!
Hello! My name is Luisa. I'm from Spain and I am studying a Master's degree in classical music at Codarts. I studied the bachelor in Madrid and then I came here to do the Master last year. At the same time that I was studying I started teaching, this was a revelation for me, I love and enjoy to teach and share what I know about music. So if you want to learn and enjoy this beautiful instrument, I will be happy to help you! I have experience with both children and adults. I use methods from different pedagogies in my lessons, combining them in a different way for every student according to their neccesities and always with creativity.

Celia
Professional pianist, Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offer music and piano lessons in the Netherlands. Good quality :)
Piano performance & Music therapy Hello! My name is Celia. I’m from Spain and I’m currently studying Music Therapy at the Rotterdam conservatory. I recently become a Music Therapy intern at Florence, The Hague. I obtained my bachelor diploma in piano performance in 2016. I have performed concerts as a soloist, in duet with other pianists and in bigger ensembles/orchestras. Since I moved to the Netherlands, I’m also part of a music trio where we perform pop, jazz, arrangements and compositions from our singer. All these experiences together give me for sure a big capacity of working repertoire and understand the different needs of my students as a teacher! 🙂 As I’m in education as a therapist, I also use all my knowledge in combination with Music Therapy skills with all my students and especially with people who demand a different experience during a music lesson. Music Therapy techniques allow you to play music without any knowledge of theory, so it’s very useful when in the middle of the lesson you need a break or when you just need to connect with yourself, for example. Music Therapy triggers your curiosity 😉 Learn & explore During more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I have worked all kind of people: children, adults, people with disabilities, families… I’m quite flexible and able to adapt my way of teaching to the circumstances! I like to work individually and in groups. Each way has its own advantages! In my lessons I use all methods I could experiment myself among my piano career; I’m also always open for new knowledge, repertoire and ways of working what my students may propose me. It’s fascinating how I never stop learning new repertoire and music styles thanks to my students! I try to offer music in a different way for every student according to their needs, with creativity and a relaxed ambience where the student can learn and explore. Each person has his/her own rhythm… which in my opinion is very important to respect. I also work with music theory, explaining concepts to my students from the pieces we play. I find this way is effective, instructive and much more motivating 🙂 In my lessons, we can work on classical, jazz, pop, arrangements, 4-hands piano music, improvisation and much more! Happiness Music needs a bit of commitment. It’s like a plant: a bit of water every day is much better than a lot of water just one day per week! However, every plant is different, and in the end, the important thing is that you feel happy and motivated during your learning process. This is also important for me, so for sure I always try my best to help my students in that aspect. The enjoyment of music (and everything) makes you learn much faster, don’t you think? Feel free to ask any kind of question! :)

Singing classes (Jazz, modern): improve your vocal skills, find your true voice!
Does music have a special place in your heart? Yes? Then let's begin from there! My mission is to make you find your true voice, discover your own style and the things that make you enthusiastic. With my lessons, I can help you to experience the joy of feeling through singing. We are going to explore the possibilities of the voice, learn breathing and vocal tecniques that will make you improve your sound, play with improvisation and explore the fields of interpretation and communication with an audience.

I'm a trained piano player and I can play guitar, so I usually accompain my students: this will make you experience the interaction with a musician (or with another musician, if you can also play). So... are you ready? The first thing that I am going to ask you is: what is it that you like the most? This will be our starting point.

Clarinet Lessons, Improvisation, Music Theory, Music Understanding
Would you like to learn one of the instruments which have more style possibilities? Would you like to know why many composers say that is a very powerful instrument because it fits in may situations? Did you know that in the Klezmer history clarinet substituted the violin for projection reasons but also because perfectly able to imitate the human voice, crying or laughing? Would you like to discover the fascinating world of clarinet? One of my priorities as a musician is the sound. I believe that with a beautiful and personal sound you are able at every level to transmit emotion and meaning, it doesn’t matter the difficulty or the level. So I try to focus first on awareness of what’s beautiful for the student and what’s not. Then through technique and repertoire (suggestions of the student or suggestions of mine that can help to grow the student curiosity), we develop the student knowledge. Always helping the student to understand -depending on his/her the theoretical level- what we are doing, putting together music and theory. And giving tools to expand the border, at all levels. I have knowledge and experience in Jazz, Classical, Klezmer, Choro Music and Improvisation. You just need a precious element! • Music Theory I focus on having a good basics, spending as much as we need to understand every single thing, because then with times it becomes more easy. I try to help the student simplifying the material because then, we only with ourselves with a good procedure of the basics to solve any problem. Only with one lesson, you will understand what I mean. I have experience in preparing students for exams, the ones for the semester as well as any official exam; doesn't matter if you have an intermediate theory level and you want to improve, or if you would like to be stronger solidifying the knowledge you have (which is always the best option), or if you don’t know anything about notes and music concepts and you would like to be familiar with them. Maybe you are an adult who always wanted to improvise but doesn’t know where to start…? The only thing you need is a good organization -which I can provide- to reach any goal!
