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.
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.

Violin Playing: all levels in classical, jazz, folk and alternative
Your passion and direction is the most important thing. If you like to make your own music: great, I will show you the most efficient positioning of fingers to play and you can go free to do your music. If you are applying to Conservatorium, we will go into hard work to get you prepared for professional level. You give the tempo and direction, I will only share with you tricks and techniques I've learn for my years and years of playing (hopefully will be useful for you!).

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.

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!

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.
