Violin and Viola Lessons - Experienced Professional Teacher in Amsterdam

Violin and Viola Lessons - Professional and Experienced Teacher in North Holland ( Viool / Altviool )


Hi there! I’m offering a great opportunity to those interested in developing their musical abilities with individual guidance.

- Violin or Viola lessons

- Lessons for students of all ages and levels of experience. Beginners to University Level.

- Flexible teaching style

No matter your level of prior experience, your lessons will always be centered on the joy of making music.  We will work on developing a beautiful sound and building a way of playing that will allow you to perform the works that you love.

Throughout the lessons, you will be provided with methods that enable you to examine and overcome any challenge that you might face as you progress. You will be given the tools to independently continue your practice at home.

All styles of playing can be covered - from ornamentation in Baroque, or the operatic classicism of Mozart, to the romantic richness of Brahms or the impressionist fluidity of Debussy.

Apart from classical music, we can cover your favorites from Pop, Folk, and Film Soundtracks.


I aim to promote an artistic conversation around a common love for music. Whether you're looking to start a new hobby or you are wanting to gain some fundamentals to pursue your professional career, we can find a plan to suit your personal interests and schedule.

Please feel free to contact me to organize a first lesson.

Paul.

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 make 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 competitions, we can also work on that together. I will guide and support you through all the steps of the learning experience.

María
Music, violin, viola and musical language classes
I can teach viola classes at all levels, and violin to students up to the sixth of Professional Grade. I can also teach music theory at all levels and support the study of other subjects taught at the conservatory, such as music history, analysis, orchestra, chamber music, etc. I believe that the teacher must be able to adapt a lot to the student, and especially in music I find it very important to understand the sensitivity and difficulties of each student. I consider myself a demanding person, but very empathetic and patient. It is very important to me, apart from all the factors that affect the performance, to emphasize the care of the posture and the tensions of the body to avoid injuries that can be caused by playing the viola or the violin.
