Trusted teacher: Bass guitar lessons with a holistic, "all-round" character. We will practice the lessons together and we will use your best songs for this. I believe that if you have deep emotional contact with a piece of music, the learning process will also become faster, cozier and smoother! Our main themes: - technique and overview of the bass (where?) - general music theory, ear training (why?) - creative improvisation and composition (what?) - rhythm, tempo, phrasing and feeling (how?) For adults and teenagers, lessons last 1 hour. For all levels from absolute beginner to conservatory level.
Vinicius - Amstelveen$78
Trusted teacher: Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

Music is my passion. I was captivated by it at a young age, and later, in 2012 I've started to teach piano. My music path starts at Russian music school and then goes to the College of Arts, also in Russia. During this time I was involved in all kinds of musical activities: competitions, live performances and hard studying. In the course of studying, I've found out that what I like most is composition and piano teaching. I love classical music and know about it a lot (yet there is still plenty to discover). I'm eager to share my knowledge and passion with all of you who will decide to learn how to play the piano with me. It's not only about PLAYING the piano... I will not only teach you how to play the piano but how to feel the music as well and express this feeling with the different touch on the instrument. You will discover the secrets of classical music that will prove you it is not boring. Maybe, while playing somebody's pieces, you will discover the desire to create something by yourself. It is possible, even for beginners. You just have to learn some methods and techniques and then let your imagination work. I also help my students to overcome the fear of failure and anxiety that usually comes during performances. My lesson plans based on the personal needs of my students but in general, they include: - piano playing; - music theory; - improvisation; - composition; - playing 4 hands; - listening to classical music.
