About Me

I'm an enthusiastic teacher. I like learn from each one of my students, discovering their goals and their capacities. I enjoy figuring out the right method for each of them but the most important goal I have as a teacher is to always make the students have fun while learning and making music. I studied music since I was 6 years old and I had the opportunity of learning from incredible musicians and traveling around the world with different orchestras and ensembles. I'm willing to share my knowledge and to get to know any interested person in music, no matter the level or the experience!

Zangles, gezond genieten! Als je bezig bent met zingen kan je even al het andere loslaten en dat geeft een heerlijk gevoel van ontspanning w
Je lichaam is je instrument bij het zingen. We proberen dat instrument zo mooi mogelijk te laten klinken door te werken aan klankvorming. Hierdoor kunnen de stembanden vrijer bewegen, zodat je minder snel moe wordt bij het zingen. Je stem wordt voller en je kunt hogere en lagere tonen zingen. Tijdens de zanglessen zijn we ook bezig met articulatie, de uitspraak van vreemde talen en ook aan de betekenis van en je gevoel bij een bepaald stuk. Natuurlijk bepaal jij zelf wat voor soort muziek je gaat zingen. Of je nu alleen zingt onder de douche of dat je bv. in een koor zit en je tegen bepaalde moeilijkheden op loopt in het algemeen of bij een bepaald stuk? Neem dan gerust je koorpartij mee naar de les en dan kijken we samen hoe we dat makkelijker voor je kunnen maken. We werken aan repertoire waar jij van houdt. Ook kunnen we samen een ontdekkingsreis maken naar jouw favoriete muziek. WIE KAN ER LEREN ZINGEN? Iedereen kan leren zingen. Door de zanglessen zal je merken dat het zingen makkelijker wordt. Bovendien is zingen goed voor ontspanning, zowel van lichaam als geest. Zingen is gewoon genieten! JE EIGEN INSTRUMENT Als zanger of zangeres heb je alvast één voordeel ten opzichte van instrumentalisten: je hoeft geen (duur) instrument te kopen. Jij hebt je instrument altijd bij je, maar… je moet wel goed voor je instrument zorgen!

Pianoles voor leerlingen aan huis in Amsterdam en omstreken!
Ik ben gespecialiseerd en opgeleid als pianopedagoog. In mijn lessen vind ik het belangrijk leerlingen het plezier van het muziek maken mee te geven. Ik geef al 7 jaar les en heb daardoor veel ervaring in het lesgeven opgebouwd en wil mijn handvaten graag doorgeven op het gebied van pianospelen. Met het pianorepertoire wordt op een creatieve manier omgegaan. Daarnaast is er veel aandacht voor noten lezen, harmonieleer, ontwikkeling auditief vermogen, ritmegevoel, pianotechniek en improvisatie. Er word goed gekeken naar de wensen van de leerling. Voor leerlingen die graag voorspelen wordt een keer per halfjaar een informele voorspeelmiddag georganiseerd. Voor jongere leerlingen heb ik verschillende attributen die de ontwikkeling ondersteunen en de fantasie van de leerling aanspreken.

Learn how to play the violin and read music step-bystep!
I use a step-by-step teaching approach based on The Suzuki Method, personalised and designed for each student, focusing on individual strengths and talents. My lessons incorporate music theory so that a deeper understanding of music can be met. This incorporation keeps the necessary theoretical component of music fun, interesting and alive. Students receive structural practice material, as well as their own favourite music to practice and master with my help and guidance. Teacher-Student duets are a fantastic and fun way to gain the skills needed to play with other musicians (Ensembles, Orchestra, Bands, etc.) I aim to empower the student to be their own best teacher whilst integrating discipline with proven practice techniques necessary for a solid foundation in violin playing.
