We only had 1 lesson so I can't say much yet, but the lesson was fine. Gerri is patient and his explanations are clear.

Gerri loves music, and it really comes across in his teaching. He's clearly thought a lot about how people learn, and I felt comfortable behind the kit almost immediately. Highly recommended.
It was a great workshop! I am an amateur drummer myself, but Gerri was able to help me with many different practical tips. I think he's from beginner to advanced, everyone can help you further along the way!!!

Music Lessons (Jazz & Modern Guitar, Jazz Music, General Theory, Ear & Rhythmic Training) from a Master Degree graduated. Also ONLINE
Jazz & Modern Music Lessons in Amsterdam and ONLINE. If you’re passionate about music and would like to develop musical skills of your own, I can help. I am a graduate musician who can teach students of all levels. Some topics that I cover are, jazz and modern guitar, music theory, jazz improvisation and theory (any instrument), ear training and jazz/pop/hip-hop composition and arrangement. I can also teach piano for beginners. I cover a range of styles from jazz to other modern styles like Bossa Nova, Samba, Funk, Rock and Groove music. With ten years of experience in studying, practicing and playing, I have come to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is to develop your musical ear. This is done by the process of to transcribing and singing. I believe that music is like speaking a language so I start with teaching you how to connect your voice to your instrument. In accordance with your rhythm in the learning process, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, and how to compose your own melodies and improvise. I was born in Tarragona in 1997 (Catalunya, Spain).

During his last course, he received both the Holland Outgoing Scholarship and Internalisation funds to go on exchange to one of the most considered universities in the US, the Temple University in Philadelphia. During his stay there, he recorded an album with jazz saxophone legend Dick Oatts with his co-leaded band “The Dam Jawn”, which will be released in Spring 2023 under the prestigious label Challenge Records. During my musical career, I have been fortunate to play and tour with renowned musicians such as Dick Oatts, Benjamin Herman, Bill McHenry, Fèlix Rossy, Jasper Blom, Gideon Tazelaar, Gianni Gagliardi, Jo Krause, Tim Brey, Horacio Fumero, Aldo Caviglia, Mario Rossy, Masa Kamaguchi, Sanna Van Vliet, Eladio Reinón, Rita Payés, Santi de La Rubia, Kyle Swan, Benet Palet, Julius Gawlik, Deejay Foster, David Xirgu, Martín Leiton, Gonzalo del Val, Ian Cleaver, Txema Riera, Menno Daams, David Lucácks, Fernando Brox, Vicent Pèrez, Magalí Datzira, and Lucas Martínez.

Saxophone lessons: Enjoy becoming an all-round musician (EN, NL, HB)
Enjoy becoming an independent & all-round musician!! My aim as a Saxophone & music teacher is to give you the ability to develop skills that will make you enjoy "music-making" and love exploring all kinds of songs/musical pieces. Also, I give you tools to be able to cooperate with other musicians. The methods I use are focused around goals that I create together with each individual student (and/or parents). Our goals are based on both the student's passion & musical desires together with the technical needs to make these desires sound! (control over the instrument, reading music notation, music theory, Improvisation, composition, ear-training and more). Music is a powerful language that everyone around the world can understand, but not all can speak yet... Music-making involves Joy, curiosity, self-expression and a feeling of being a part of something bigger than yourself! Practical Info: - Normally, lessons take place at my location in Amsterdam. (call to discuss other options) - I work with both kids (from age 8/9) and adults, (total) beginners, amateurs & semiprofessionals alike - I play & teach: Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Baritone Saxophones (Flute & Bass-Clarinet for beginners as well) ** FOR PARENTS ** - Music making teaches you about how to build long-lasting dedication & successful work ethics that can be implemented throughout life, in any filed! - Music teaches you how to express thoughts & feelings and can be important for a growth of a child. - Music is a rich lifestyle, and opening a child to that world is a great gift that a parent can give to his/her child.

Guitar lessons for beginners and advanced players in electric, acoustic or classical styles.
Guitar lessons for beginners and advanced players in electric, acoustic or classical styles. Lessons are tailored to meet the experience and interests of the student. I can also teach music theory, ear training, improvisation and composing techniques if requested. I'm a professional guitar teacher (BA) and film composer (MA).

Drum lessons (individual, ensemble playing, ear training, theory and more!)
The drumset is one of the most important and powerful instruments in a music ensemble. It does not only provide the rhythm and groove foundation for all the other instruments - it also defines the sound of the band, the character of the songs, the volume... just like an orchestra conductor. In these lessons (which are of course personalized and open depending on the interests of the student) we will work beyond the physical/mechanical aspect of the drums (technique, coordination, etc) into the musical aspect, so we will spend some time listening and analyzing music together, working on ear training and music theory from a practical point of view.

Violin and Viola Lessons with a Native English Speaker
Violin and viola lessons with a friendly Australian in Amsterdam. From complete beginner to intermediate levels, we can find a lesson style to suit you. As a professional musician with both Bachelor and Master degrees I have experience teaching at primary schools, secondary schools, music camps, and at home tutelage. I pride myself on being able to tailor lessons to best suit each individual student’s learning style, and on being able to adapt the level of strictness or lightness to the situation. So, if you’ve ever wondered about learning a new instrument or just need a new teacher contact me and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Learn How to Make Your Own Music: Saxophone, Improvisation, Ableton Live.
Music is a great way to express yourself and your feelings, it is an amazing tool to learn about your personality. As an art form, music has been around with us from ancient times. As a musician, you'll need to be able to know music theory and acquire technique. Through years of teaching I've developed a method of learning music in a practical and structured way, keeping the joy of making music as a main focus, as well as providing with all the necessary theoretical background. I teach music to all ages: my students currently are from 5 to 81 years old. And all levels: I have an individual approach for every student. You will learn how to play music, listen to music, compose your own music and more! Usually, my students are able to make music within a first week of learning and I have a lot of positive feedbacks and reviews from them! My lessons are: saxophone, improvisation, composition, Ableton Live, artist development.

The basic course takes you through all the elements you need to professionally write and produce music; with specialties ranging from record production to writing for media i.e. T.V and film. Learn all the pitfalls and save yourself years of pain! :) Skills I take you through are: 1. Music finishing; e.g. lyrics, arrangements, programming drums and synth parts. 2. Performance and recording techniques - setting up microphones, and hands on exploring the different types and 'colours' they record. How to record real synths and find the correct sounds for your music. Re-amping guitars and anything else to give your music more life! 3. Mixing; Using Pro Tools HD, Logic and Ableton, an SSL mixer with lots of classic 'outboard' equipment as well as the latest plugins on board the computer. 4. Mastering; The final stage of releasing music is making it sounds amazing on all systems. A course is tailor-made to suit the desire of the student - from recording and releasing your own music, to film audio post-production and sound design and everything else in-between. I have more than 30 years in the music industry, previously working at BBC Radio 1/1xtra station, and also at Jools Holland's Helicon Mountain studios in West London. I am eager to share what I have learnt over the years in a really friendly environment - it's perfect to take home all the knowledge you need to write from anywhere in the coming years.
