*I started teaching to pupils in order to make some pocket money when I was in high school meanwhile studying at the conservatory. I am sort of picky when it comes to work- it has to be something I am really passioned about. Otherwise, I won't give it any valuable input. Whilst graduating from the conservatory I've realized that I really love the process of teaching, therefore, I have been giving lessons over 10 years with a deep passion of inspiring student's mind by showing them the methods of learning, thinking and making music.

Reviews (3)

Lora is an excellent teacher. She makes learning how to play the piano fun. She is knowledgeable and knows how to adapt to the student's needs.
Lora is a great teacher; persistent and serious, yet gentle and very friendly.
Lora is everything you would like in a teacher...Knowledgable, encouraging, flexible and probably most important persistent but positive. It was a pleasure watching/hearing my daughter learn and have fun in the process...

Mariana
Vioolles in Amsterdam - Violin classes in Amsterdam
I'm a violin teacher and I'm expert teaching groups. I have a lot of experience teaching beginners but I'm also able to guide more advanced students so they can reach their full potential playing the violin. My first goal is to motivate the student and to have fun playing the instrument. I also apply singing and score reading. To more advanced students I apply my knowledge of Kato Havas' Approach so they learn to relax while playing.

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!

Yana
Enjoy Piano Lessons: learn to read music,understand rhythm,harmony, music phrase,technique and explore creative imagination!
Hello! My name is Yana and I am a graduate from the Juilliard School, New York who is offering piano and harpsichord lessons for children and adults in Amsterdam! Originally from Bulgaria, I have received a Master's Degree in New York and an Honoree Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music. As a soloist, chamber music performer and as part of the orchestra I have played concerts in the US, Canada, Italy, The Netherlands, Japan, Singapore and Bulgaria. I greatly enjoy teaching and I care most for inspiring love for music and piano playing. I believe in the understanding of the needs, likes and ways of learning of each individual student and through that searching for the student's own creativity and imagination. My teaching experience includes teaching several years in music and art schools in New York and Cleveland and almost 5 years private practice here, in Amsterdam.

Private Piano and Music Theory lessons in Utrecht and surroundings
I'm Paula, 24 years old, from Barcelona and I have been a piano and music theory teacher for 6 years now. I learned in the Municipal Conservatory of Music in Barcelona (CMMB) and my goal is to help students master and enjoy music and piano playing as much as I do, because that's what music is for. Also, I can help the student prepare for specific challenges such as conservatory or any music school examinations. I'm studying clinical psychology at Utrecht University and I would be pleased to help you and to learn together, so if you are interested contact me!

My name is Nadav, I am a Master's graduate of Conservatorium van Amsterdam's classical piano department. I offer piano lessons for all ages and levels!

Parisa
Piano Performance, Classical and Modern Music (with some Persian and Azeri music only if interested)
You will start to enjoy playing the piano both during the class and outside of the time of the class. You will learn how to be able to perform in a way which inspires your audience. I will teach you the basic music theory without going way deep into the theory because this is a performance class but you will learn what you need to excel your performance. Additionally, I will teach you the principles of aesthetics of playing the piano. The repertoire that I focus on is mostly the Western modern and Classical music, but we can also work on some famous Persian and Turkish pieces if you like. Of course, you are also always welcome to bring your favorite pieces to the class.

Leon Haxby
Professional Piano / Composition / Music Theory Lessons in English
I am a friendly, patient and professional Piano, Composition and DJ teacher from London, currently living in Amsterdam. I began composition lessons with Darren Bloom at Forest School and was awarded a scholarship to the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, where I graduated with a BMus in Composition in 2015. I am now studying for a Masters degree at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Richard Ayres and Wim Henderickx. My previous teachers include Richard Causton, Edwin Roxburgh, Ed Bennett, Joe Cutler and Howard Skempton. I have also taken part in masterclasses with Mario Garuti and Colin Matthews. I was the winner of the Orchestre Nouvelle Generation Composers Competition 2016/17, and the Birmingham Conservatoire Orchestral Composition Prize 2015. My scores are held in the Royal Academy of Music and American Viola Society libraries, and my pieces have been performed in various locations throughout Europe, the USA, Canada and South Africa. In addition to classical composition, I have also completed a number of scores for short films, and composed the soundtrack for Marianna Jungman's show at London Fashion Week in 2014. Other collaborators include Jeff Leyshon, Andrew Delaney, Zena Holloway and New York-based photographer Graeme Montgomery. I have been commissioned to write soundtracks for Japanese Vogue, and Cent Magazine. For DJing I specialise in Techno, Dubstep and Drum & Bass music. I was taught by Noah Priddle and Kasey Riot at the London Sound Academy where I completed a course in 2017. Teaching Experience: From 2009-2011 I taught Drumkit to students aged between 10-15 at a local Rock & Pop School. I've also been involved in a number of music courses for children between 2009-2014 as a Supervisor / Sound Technician. In 2016 I began giving private lessons, and built up a group of over 20 pupils ranging from 5 year olds to adults. Between April-July 2017, I also gave private and small-group music lessons at a local primary school. Approach to Teaching: My philosophy in Music Tuition is to improve the student's technique through exercises and pieces which they enjoy. I also provide a general music education as I believe in a holistic approach, and increasing their passion for music which will increase their motivation for practice and improvement.
