    I am a bassoonist and composer from Australia who is available to tutor in Amsterdam. I teach not only the ordinary modern bassoon but also historical performance, whether that would be on period instruments or otherwise. I am also available to tutor music theory and composition for all levels. I have won prizes in both bassoon and composition, including the Royal Schools Music Club Anniversary Scholarship, the Bendat Family Foundation Composition Scholarship, the Royal Over-Seas League Arts Travel Scholarship, and the Catholic Arts Chapman Scholarship. I have also been part of a variety of ensembles, including the MAPLE wind quintet, Tura New Music's Breaking Out Ensemble, and orchestras in Australia. I have had the incredible opportunity to write and arrange for many ensembles with very different instrumental combinations such as Piñata Percussion, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of St George's College, and Trinity College, Perth. As a teacher, I strive to develop students to become inspired by music and to always seek a deeper understanding and appreciate of music. I am open to teaching any student so long as they can hold an instrument comfortably!

    Ableton Live - Getting your ideas down into a workable format to create a full working track! No prior knowledge needed!
    I specialise in making music with the computer when there isn't a whole bunch of theory knowledge there. I can teach you to quickly and efficiently make that tune in your head into a reality, then turn that into a full track. If you have tried a few tutorials or courses and they didn't fit with you because of all the engineering jargon and theory based approach, this course is for you! I learnt to make music because I was hearing all these songs in my head but wasn't good enough at any instrument to materialise them. Ableton allowed me to hash through ideas, jam with them, then finally turn them into a full working track. I have also worked as a live and studio sound engineer so I do have the theoretical knowledge but can communicate in the language of learners from all different levels. I think there are a lot of people that just need to express what they have in there head and Ableton is by far the best program for that. It is very intuitive, "jammable" and so much fun! For me Ableton is my instrument but I also play the drums, piano and bass.

    Mariela
    Classical & Pop Singing, Music reading and Music History
    Hello all! I am a Mexican Musicologist and singer based in Amsterdam. I have been teaching for almost 7 years to different age ranges. //During the Singing lessons you will learn how to breathe and use the 'right' muscles for singing, voice exercises, repertoire and how to improve your music ear, it is basically a relaxing therapy, trust me. We will find together and based on your taste what songs you would like to work on! // The Music Theory lessons are for the ones who want to learn how to read music scores, no matter your level for sure I can keep challenging you with exercises and funny dynamics. Please be patient, to learn music language takes time... //In Music History I specialize in Classical repertoire, so why is Beethoven so good? Why is Mozart so famous around the world? what should you 'listen' when you listen academic music? Adding to this I also compare the music development with other arts and movements, so bring enough paper and pens for this lesson!

    Heather
    Learn piano, music composition, and / or English in a relaxed atmosphere
    I give piano lessons to students of all levels and ages. My goal is to challenge the student student but not to overwhelm them. I also teach theory during the piano class, and I also give theory homework. I make individual attunement of the way of teaching to the needs of the students. In addition, I am also a composer / singer-songwriter, so if you want to improve your songs or pieces of music, you can do very well. I can also give English lessons. I have a year of experience as a teacher for English as a second language. I really like meeting people and improving their English!

    Irene
    Music class for all levels. Singing, recorder and music theory
    I enjoy teaching music to both adults and children. I have taught people that can already play an instrument or sing, but also people that know nothing about it and want to give it a try. I like adapting my methods to the student and his/her interests. Music is for everyone and everyone has their own way to engage on it. I have been trained in: -Classical and Early Music Singing (current study. Conservatorium van Amsterdam) -Recorder (Bachelor, Conservatorium van Amsterdam) -Solfege -Harmony on the keyboard -Music notation
