Composition Lesson

Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music.

My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real.

For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions.

I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more.
Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.

Reviews (3)

Our first lesson was an exploration of the feeling of holding the viola and the bow and of playing some notes pizzicato and with the bow. Maya was enthusiastic, patient and flexible in adapting to what I could and wanted to try. Her calm approach (letting learning sink in, allowing a process of getting used to the playing and learning) made me feel very comfortable and inspired!
Maya was very motivating and explanatory, with a pleasant and patient attitude. I'm looking forward to our next class!
I really enjoyed my first lesson with Maya. The lesson was very relaxed, but at the same time she gave great guidance as to where I could begin to improve my technique.
Violin & Viola lessons are for anyone who wishes to start playing, continue or rusume studying, for both children and adults. ​I combine various practices which I believe create a greater whole. I teach basic to advance techniques in reprtoire which corresponds with the student's personality and ranges from classical to contemporary, improvisation, world, folk, pop, rock and more. I combine repertoire with improvisation, composition, movement and other an interdicsiplinary manner. My method is personal and about listening to the student wishes and ideas. If you're intrigued, I'd be happy to play, teach and exchange ideas with you!

PIANO LESSONS: What about learning how to play the piano? (in person and online)
Piano, the instrument used by the romantics to make their most beautiful music, but also by the most experimental and modern composers to create their amazing music. Isn't it a great instrument to play? With more than 5 years of experience teaching in music schools and 8 years as a private piano teacher, I developed an efficient and "fun"-focusing way to teach how to play the instrument. Every student is different, so also the way to play and learn shall be different, which makes every single lesson special and rewarding. I also offer the possibility of teaching in groups: if you want to know more about this option. I hope I become the teacher you want and need!

This class is for aspriring musicians who aim to be professional and go deep in details about their preparation or just for passionated people interested about how to gain music knowledge.

Adrian
Guitar, Solfege, Ear Training, Rhythmic Training, Theory, Harmony and Jazz!
A little about myself: I'm from Venezuela and I'm currently studying in Codarts. I'm a Jazz Guitar player. I've had experience from all sort of places, from Latin America to the US to Spain to The Netherlands, so I can offer a wide view about not only Jazz but music in general. I tent to focus specially on Technique, I want my student to discover a personal and deep connection with the instrument and knows it in broad sense. That means working on really knowing the guitar! I also emphasize my lessons on Ear Training and consider it an important skill for maximizing the student's playing experience. Rhythm is really important as well for any instrument. And I have a strong background in Music Theory and Harmony, since I'm not only a harmonist (guitar) but also I've studied the subject quite extensively.and I'm convinced it will enrich the student's playing and understanding of music. I will also focus on repertoire. My commitment is too always teach these skills/techniques in a practical way, so it makes sense to the student and therefore inspires her/him to discover more about music and enriches her/his playing!. If you are not a guitar player don't worry! I can teach all these subjects (except Guitar) to any kind of instrumentalist.. I will always adapt to the student's needs!
