Learn piano and / or music composition in a relaxed atmosphere

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I teach piano to students of all levels and ages. My goal is to challenge but not overwhelm the learner student. I also teach theory during piano lessons, and I also give theory homework. I tailor the teaching method individually to the needs of the students. I'm also a composer / singer-songwriter, so if you want to improve your songs or pieces of music, you can do that very well.

Cello & composition lessons in Zaandam and Amsterdam
I am a professional cellist and have loved this instrument from up close for most of my life. I have a lot of experience teaching cellists of all levels between the ages of 5 and 75, and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for this gorgeous instrument with others. In my lessons, I look for an approach that suits each student individually and has lots of attention for the wishes and needs of my students. From the very first lesson, we make music together, and explore ways of allowing the naturally beautiful sound of the cello to emerge. Whether you'd like to learn the cello, polish up your skills, or further develop yourself as a musician, I would be delighted to accompany you on this journey. I teach in a spacious studio in Zaandam (Wednesdays and Thursdays), and in an atmospheric studio in Amsterdam (Mondays). Are you curious, or would you like to know more? Feel free to get in touch.

Bassoon (Baroque/Classical and Modern), Theory, and Composition Lessons
I am a bassoonist and composer from Australia who is available to tutor in Amsterdam. I teach not only the ordinary modern bassoon but also historical performance, whether that would be on period instruments or otherwise. I am also available to tutor music theory and composition for all levels. I have won prizes in both bassoon and composition, including the Royal Schools Music Club Anniversary Scholarship, the Bendat Family Foundation Composition Scholarship, the Royal Over-Seas League Arts Travel Scholarship, and the Catholic Arts Chapman Scholarship. I have also been part of a variety of ensembles, including the MAPLE wind quintet, Tura New Music's Breaking Out Ensemble, and orchestras in Australia. I have had the incredible opportunity to write and arrange for many ensembles with very different instrumental combinations such as Piñata Percussion, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of St George's College, and Trinity College, Perth. As a teacher, I strive to develop students to become inspired by music and to always seek a deeper understanding and appreciate of music. I am open to teaching any student so long as they can hold an instrument comfortably!

Songwriting: establish or refine a writing routine
I help beginning, intermediate and advanced songwriters establish and/or refine their songwriting routine. Using my own book on the subject (no extra charge) and a variety of interesting assignments, I work with you to make you the best songwriter you can be! Some basic music theory and instrumental skills are needed, but I can also help you get this under your belt.

Piano lessons, Singing lessons, Theater lessons or combination (Interpretation / Song accompaniment)
I graduated from the Conservatory in Arnhem (ArtEZ) in 2013. Since then I have been working as an actor, singer and pianist (mostly theater). In addition to playing always been active as a teacher. Many group lessons but also individual lessons. Currently active as a keyboard player for the Aunt Joke Karaoke Band. Because I master many different disciplines, we can make the lessons as personal as you want. Do you enjoy learning to guide yourself while singing? Do you want to write a song? Do you want to know if you are singing healthy? Do you want more technique in your piano playing? Do you want to learn more about music theory? Or just sing songs that you like? Everything is possible! Call or message me especially for questions !!

Gosse
Piano lessons via the best and fastest way to Rome!
Do you want to teach (electric) piano, keyboard or synthesizer? Then you have come to the right place! Gosse (1989) has been giving piano lessons for more than 10 years and we are proud to announce that almost all students who start the lessons actually continue. The lessons are primarily focused on fun and development. He knows from experience that the most important ingredients for learning to play the piano as effectively as possible are: 1: The pleasure of playing The fun is increased by learning to play numbers that the student experiences as beautiful or fun and that bring the right degree of challenge. Gosse mainly specializes in Pop, Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Funk, Bossa-nova, Latin and Light classical styles. Learn to play your favorite songs! 2: Learning in the way that best suits the student There are three different ways in which someone can learn to play the piano: sheet music, by ear and (the relatively new way) through software programs such as Synthesia. The correct method differs from person to person. 3: Knowing the music theory / shortcuts The three ways you can learn to play the piano described above help you press the right keys at the right time. But it can be easier. Namely by knowing the underlying music theory and / or the shortcuts! Gosse also teaches music production (songwriting and producing). He is most specialized in the Logic Pro and Ableton studio programs. He also helps vocalists who want to accompany themselves on the piano. Feel free to contact us for a trial lesson, for a more detailed version of the above 3 points or if you want to know more!

Piano or Theory Teacher for Beginners or Professionals
I am a student studying classical piano at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I graduated from the Yehudi Menuhin School in England. I can help students with their piano exams, theory exams.

Marco
Music Production and Theory: Everything you need to know.
My name is Marco, and I am an Italian composer and sound designer working and living in Amsterdam. I studied Classical and Experimental Composition at the Conservatory, and then Communication Sciences and Technologies, and Sound Design at the University. After that, I spent the last 8 years producing music and sounds for advertisement, short movies, tv shows, documentaries, theatre, art installations, and so on. This gave me a broad knowledge of how to write music in every different style, and how to do that fast. This class starts with my experience, but I really want the students to build their own personalized plan, choosing on which of these areas to focus on: -Film Scoring -Sound Design -Music Theory -Arranging for Orchestra -Solfège -Introduction to Piano -Introduction to Music Softwares (DAWs) and Plugins -Electronic Music and Beats Production If you need to take lessons at certain times excluded from my timetable feel free to contact me anyways and let's see what we can arrange. Hope to hear from you soon! Cheers :)

Ableton Live - Getting your ideas down into a workable format to create a full working track! No prior knowledge needed!
I specialise in making music with the computer when there isn't a whole bunch of theory knowledge there. I can teach you to quickly and efficiently make that tune in your head into a reality, then turn that into a full track. If you have tried a few tutorials or courses and they didn't fit with you because of all the engineering jargon and theory based approach, this course is for you! I learnt to make music because I was hearing all these songs in my head but wasn't good enough at any instrument to materialise them. Ableton allowed me to hash through ideas, jam with them, then finally turn them into a full working track. I have also worked as a live and studio sound engineer so I do have the theoretical knowledge but can communicate in the language of learners from all different levels. I think there are a lot of people that just need to express what they have in there head and Ableton is by far the best program for that. It is very intuitive, "jammable" and so much fun! For me Ableton is my instrument but I also play the drums, piano and bass.

Classical piano lessons in Amsterdam (for all levels)
Experiencing the joy of music-making can be one of the most rewarding things in life! If you, or one of your children, want to learn to play the piano, or to improve your piano playing, I can help you develop your technique and musicality. After discussing your goals, I'll see what's the best way to guide you there - and then we'll get to work together! My goal is that you're inspired and enjoy exploring the piano. I offer individual lessons of half an hour (especially recommended for younger children) or an hour. Normally, I teach in the Conservatoire of Amsterdam, close to the central station.
