Trusted teacher: What do you love to listen to? How do you create music that expresses the music that has deeply influenced you? The "how do you create that" is where technique, or music theory, shapes what compels you. There are a variety of techniques because there are a variety of sound possibilities (jazz, rock, classical, etc.). "In order to create that" music in your head, the basics of music have to be learned: pitch and rhythmical relationships. The most basic examples of pitch relationships are melody and harmony. If my availability works, I will gladly take in anyone who desires to explore all the basics and beyond. I greatly hope that any student considering lessons will read all of the information provided about myself on Apprentus. I will not begin a lesson with any student who does not answer the first five questions. Now, I believe I've covered enough ground for potential students to understand what my lessons will be about. So for now... enjoy the sounds and Au revoir!

Trusted teacher: I am going to teach you how to sing in a healthy way. I work a lot of genres (opera, zarzuela, chanson, lied, musical pop,...) and I can teach you to accompany yourself on the piano. Also I give piano and musical theory lessons. Moreover, I train corageous people to pass successfully their auditions/exams.

If you feel interested about the vocal world and you want to begin, even if you think you can not do it, I encourage you to try! On the other hand, if you have experience and you want to reinforce your vocal technique, improve your interpretation and feel yourself more comfortable on the stage, it will be a big pleasure to work with you :) My methodology is unique for each person so it is shaped on the student needs. Generally, it is based on body awareness, breathing, vocal technique, declamation and interpretation. To achieve that, it is important to establish a trust-based relationship between us and to make you feel to be in a comfortable and free environment. I find this point essential to make music. You have to feel that you almost make no efforts to sing.

Trusted teacher: Former student at the Conservatory of Versailles in France in the class of Saskia Lethiec, I had the opportunity to be part of many student and amateur orchestras in Violin I: - Orchestra of the Sorbonne in Paris - Orchestra of the Universities of Paris - Orchestra of the University of Copenhagen in Denmark - Sinfonia Ensemble of Montreal Passionate about orchestra and the teaching of my instrument, all along my musical journey I had the opportunity to transmit my knowledge in violin and music theory especially to the youngest (10-15 years old). My method: As for young students, for me learning the violin must be a discovery in every class. The child must be amazed by the beauty of the music each time he vibrates his instrument. This curiosity must be enriched day by day during his daily work and I want my classes to allow them to learn the instrument in the joy of discovering their own sensations! As for adults, I want to provide them with the means to progress independently from day to day, always becoming aware of their body. It is important for me that the adult can develop his inner listening to help him progress on the quality of his accuracy and phrasing.

Vinicius - Amsterdam, Netherlands$56
Trusted teacher: Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years 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.
