PIANO LESSONS: What about learning how to play the piano?

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!

Extra information

No need to buy any materials (like books) for the lessons. All of them will be provided by me.

About Me

Iago (1992. Rianxo, Spain) is a professional composer, pianist and conductor specialized in experimental, electronic music and modern ópera.

With a strong background in piano performing (bachelor achieved at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de A Coruña), and a master degree in music composition and contemporary music conducting (master achieved in the Conservatorium Maastricht with Vykintas Baltakas as his mentor), he has developed his very own way of creating and performing music, which allowed him to get one of the most difficult scholarships awarded by the SGAE Foundation (Spain), in 2017, to further study his master degree in prestigious international music institutions. Only 2 composers (including Iago himself) got the scholarship that year.

Iago has collaborated in several music festivals in Spain and the Netherlands, being the most recent the premiere of his project “Sferas…” (for piano, guzheng & electronics) during the “Xornadas de Música Contemporánea de Santiago de Compostela” (Galicia, Spain), and his music and arrangements have been performed in several countries: Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, Belgium and Japan.

After the premiere of his ópera “Cidade sen luz” in Maastricht, during the M4 Music Theatre Festival, he is currently developing his own modern ópera studio: the Póppera. A company meant to create and develop new ópera productions, focusing in the multimedia elements (digital design, electronic music, etc.). In the same time, he keeps teaching piano & keyboard in the city of Amsterdam, with more than 9 years of professional teaching experience.

Fantastic teacher, explains things in easy-to-understand language and tailors lessons to my goals.
It’s time to write those musical ideas you have in mind! I’m Iago: pianist, composer, and conductor. With more than 9 years of teaching experience, I can help you, your children, family or friends to learn how to write all the musical ideas you have and want to share. About me? I’m a professional composer (experimental music and opera) with a master's degree from the Conservatorium Maastricht under the guidance of Vykintas Baltakas. I’m also a piano performer specialized in contemporary music (piano and electronic music, why not?), and I’m also running my own multimedia ópera company in the Netherlands. I’ve been teaching for 9 years, which allowed me to notice how important it is to adapt all the lessons to the students. Teaching music is my passion, so my teaching way is not just superficial. About the lessons? The lessons are planned to be as practical as possible and always adapted to the music taste of every student. The development of the lessons goes through different musical elements: harmony, structure, rhythm, new technologies, etc. The main core of this course is being able to write several pieces with different instruments and tools.
Leading a group of musicians. Conducting is a necessary part of every performance with an orchestra, a wind band, opera performances, a choir and even smaller groups. Would you like to grab the baton? I'm a specialist in the conducting of Contemporary Music, which requires a deep knowledge of the music and how it works. I can teach any interested student how to conduct any kind of group: do you want to become the conductor of your local wind band? Are you planning to start your own small orchestra and you want to know how to conduct it? We can work together on that, so you will learn, gradually, how to deal with all the required things to lead any group: the musical part itself, but also the group psychology, management, etc. Join this class and enjoy of making music!

Piano Lessons with the Best Colombian Young Pianist!
Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia. I have a Master's degree from Liszt Ferenc in Budapest, Hungary, and a Master's degree from Columbus State University in the United States. Besides my career as a pianist, I have over 10 years of experience in teaching Piano, music theory, and history for all ages and categories. Even if you are a beginner we can do it. I have a personal method where I combine both classical and commercial repertoire depending on the student’s preferences. I usually play four hands with my students as well and organize at least one concert a year with all my students where they can meet and share their experiences. If you are an enthusiast about Piano and competitions, we can also work on that together, I will guide you through all the steps and support you all the way, we can also play together.

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.

Do you want to learn how to play piano, sing or maybe both? I am available to teach at my place, your house, or online. Method: Available to teach any level. I can approach the instrument in a free or structured way according to the goal of each one.

About me: I completed the Professional Jazz Instrumentalist Course at the Coimbra Conservatory of Music (Portugal,2016) and a Degree in Music (jazz variant) at the Lisbon Superior School of Music (2020). I attended a master's degree focused on music education (jazz) at the same institution(2020-2021). I am currently doing my Master's at Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. I am an active piano player and singer and I've developed several projects in different musical styles. I am friendly and I love to work with people of all ages.

You may also choose to learn your favorite songs in this program. The goal here is to give you the practice techniques and confidence to be able to perform solo piano pieces. **YOUR LESSONS** You may choose to follow my piano/music theory program, learn to play your favorite songs, or even take lessons just to learn chords.
