    Guitar lessons in Centre! - Becoming a complete musician

    Hi,

    Besides all elements of guitar knowledge and technique, I have developed my teaching method based on stage experience, acknowledging the importance of fun also when learning seriously, importance of relaxation and injury-avoidance, and general musicianship (keeping the big picture)
    I offer lessons in 5 languages and in a variety of subjects.
    I think students can benefit from my vast look on what music consists of as well as my natural sense for teaching.
    I am an experienced performing guitarist, composer, teacher and producer.
    I teach a range of subjects:

    - Note reading
    - Instrument technique
    - Chords, Harmony, accompany
    - Different music styles: Jazz, Brazilian, Folklore, indie
    - singer-songwriter, pop.
    - improvisation
    - Composition
    - Stage presence
    - Relaxation methods for performers
    - Personal orientation
    - Theory
    - Ear training
    ..And more!

    Extra information

    Bring your own guitar to the lesson, so I can see on which kind of guitar you normally play. I'll give you some constructive feedback, in case your guitar needs some extra care and issues which require attention.
    The rest of information will be provided in your first lesson.

    About Me

    Hi there! I am glad to be able share my 2 passions which are performing and teaching. I have been playing with some of the world's most outstanding musicians and in various countries. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience on stage.
    I enjoy teaching students who are motivated and have thirst for knowledge.
    I am a very patient person and enjoy equally teaching an advanced student as well as a beginner. Everyone comes with a different background of experience, tendencies and character, and that's why I never teach 2 people in the same way.
    I combine in my teaching elements of yoga, meditation, martial arts, sports and more.
    The most important thing in my view, when choosing a teacher, is to have that 'click'! When you find that someone, it's priceless. You are then on your way to something good!

    Education

    Graduated from 2 conservatories.
    I have also my private practice, where I implement my teaching method, which has been developed over the years. We are used in society to anything fast, and value it as a positive, but when it comes to learn something, we only achieve to reach deep by a slow process of learning.

    Experience / Qualifications

    Taught previously in different institutions in different countries. I have worked with students with a variety of characters, certain conditions and people carrying trauma. Many of my students are nowadays professional musicians (and happy! :) ).

    Music lessons: Double bass, bass guitar. Jazz, classical and world-music. Learn how to study
    Hey there! In my lessons, what you want is the most important. That's why we create together a plan of study with ideas, goals and subjects to reach out our dream to make music (that's also my dream) Nevertheless, I can give you an overview of the content: I divide the music theory in two: Technical and Musical. Technical Theory regarding all the concepts and information related to music, and Musical Theory regarding the ideas and concepts to help us understand and improve the performance of music. Besides that, we look to harmony in a functional, rhythmical and organic way. We learn and approach music from the first lesson, looking at it from different angles (understanding rhythm and essence of a song for example). All this plus a nice diet of assignments and exercises: D Furthermore, we put especial attention to enjoying music. That means playing but also listening music! For me, that's one of the best ways to learn :) And of course, we learn as well by making mistakes, so at the end it's all about fun and trying things out;) Remember: "True success isn't just getting what you want in life - it's liking what you get";) César

    Trumpet Lessons for all ages & stages, in classical & jazz and more!
    Hi! I'm a professional trumpet player from Australia now based in Amsterdam. I've spent the past 10 years freelancing with some of Australia's best orchestras (Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Darwin Symphony Orchestra & Sydney Symphony Orchestra to name a few..), as well as recording sessions for pop/rock artists, film scores and music theatre. I've enjoyed diversifying my career by teaching in Australian schools, and now since I've moved I'm looking to help you with your goals now I'm here in Holland. I've taught students of all ages in classical, jazz, pop approaches to trumpet. My lessons are catered to your interests and your personal development. If you're an absolute beginner, no worries! We'll get you from making fart sounds to fun melodies soon enough. If you're a bit more experienced and wanting to improve your technique, you've come to the right place! I was lucky enough to be taught by some excellent heavyweight pedagogues in the scene, including David Elton (principal trumpet of London Symphony Orchestra and Sydney Symphony Orchestra), and Tristam Williams (international soloist). I've taken masterclasses with Wycliffe Gordon, Adam Rapa, James Morrison, Wayne Bergeron, Phillip Smith to name a few. I've got so much to share with you from those incredible teachers! And I've also formulated my own pedagogy along the way that I really believe in.

    Aurel
    Drum and rhythm lessons (Karnatic techniques) with qualified and experienced drum teacher - all styles, all levels
    I'm Aurel, French Amsterdam-based drummer. In addition to my jazz drums bachelor's and master's degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), that included a thorough pedagocical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from four years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied many esthetics, and Pop and Rock musics in particular are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal. I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profile. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills, or teach "by ear" and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developping band playing skills, or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you're willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approach to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. Looking forward to meet you and to pass on my know-how to you!

    Violin lessons for beginners to advanced, & music theory lessons.
    Private lessons for beginners to advanced level of violin playing. All ages are welcome. I am a professionally trained teacher and violinist for almost two decades. My lessons are given in English, Spanish and (soon) Dutch and French. My teaching method is variable depending on the students' needs, but the goal is shared: to make a great musician and qualified violinist out of the pupil. I work on both technical and musical aspects from a (very) consciously prepared healthy and enjoyable perspective. Particular emphasis on having fun with the little ones! I pay special attention to creating a personalized education and experience for every one of my students. I also give some additional tools applicable to the violin playing which includes: Introduction to Yoga, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique and Body & Mind. All the basic theory is taught too. Occasionally, there are student concerts and collaborations with other teachers. (These may include some teachers from the Sweelinck Academy or the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and more). From among the required tools for my lessons are: a violin and a bow, score and books purchases when necessary, and, from time to time, meetings with the parents. On occasion, I use digital tools like phone/tablet apps. I can teach in various places near or in the centre of Amsterdam, or, depending on the need, I can move to pretty much wherever in The Netherlands. About the homework, I send it to the students on a weekly basis and encourage them to participate on competitions and summer music courses. As always, this is conditional on the pupil's stage.
