About Me

An award-winning British saxophonist, I'm passionate about music and I love sharing the joy of collective music-making.

From the age of 8, I began playing the saxophone. Within a year I joined my local jazz band and began playing my first professional engagements. Family and friends quickly identified my passion for playing and my dedication to practicing. With the encouragement of my teachers, I won the 'soloist of the year award in Great Northern Big Band and subsequently joined the Yorkshire Youth Big Band. At the age of 15, I began studying at the Leeds College of Music.

As a composer, I won a scholarship from Help Musicians UK to study jazz performance and composition at the Jazz Institute Berlin. Here I began my career as a teacher, traveling between schools encouraging students to discover the joys of making music together. Following a move to Amsterdam in 2016, I widened my teaching to include private students of different abilities, ages, and styles. I realized that teaching is as much about unlocking the potential for each student to have fun in making music as it is about imparting knowledge. Lessons should be structured and challenging, but most importantly they should bring joy!

Typical 1hr lesson plan:
- 10 mins warm-up (long tones, breathing exercises, sound, and projection)
- 15 mins scales and technical exercises (reading music, ear training, clapping)
- 15 mins learning a song (mostly by ear, playing along with recordings)
- 10 mins developing improvisation skills (building confidence, using improvising tools)
- 10 mins discussion, questions, and deciding homework

Currently, I maintain a busy schedule leading my original music project. I am also a regular member in numerous other bands including the BvR Flamenco Big Band, the Dutch Concert Big Band, and the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw. Recent concerts include major festivals such as JazzFest Amsterdam, Amersfoort Jazz Festival, and a Love Supreme. I have also recently played Holland’s most prestigious venues including the Bimhuis, TivoliVredenburg, and LantarenVenster.

Experience / Qualifications

Daniel
Recorder, flute and piano lessons, from medieval to contemporary music for all ages
“An exciting and versatile young recorder player, committed to pushing the boundaries of his instrument” (Erik Bosgraaf, 2021) Hello! I am a professional recorder and flute player with a passion for both early and contemporary music, offering lessons on the recorder, flute, piano and in music theory in the Amsterdam area and online. I graduated from a Masters in recorder at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam Cum Laude, with a scholarship from The Countess of Munster Musical Trust. Previously, I graduated from the Royal College of Music London with a First- Class Joint Honours Bachelor’s degree in Flute and Recorder. In 2021 I was a finalist for the Moeck/SRP recorder competition as part of the London Early Music Festival. I am an encouraging and dedicated teacher who believes that effective practice, rather than talent, is at the heart of any musical development. I share my expertise in how to practice well, varying your approach to make different connections rather than just repeating things - this also helps to keep practice interesting! I am also keen to help each student find their own voice and expression through music, tailoring lessons to each students needs and goals. I have specialist knowledge of medieval, renaissance and baroque music, and can help students to develop skills in historical performance and ornamentation/improvisation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Eduardo
Saxophone, Clarinet, Piano and Music Theory classes taught by graduates in Music Performance
I am a graduate in Bachelor´s Jazz & Modern Music Performance at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona (Spain). I am offering physical and online lessons in Music Theory (harmony, composition, solfège ...), Improvisation and Instrument (Saxophone, Clarinet and Piano). Lessons are addressed to every student profile, regardless of age, level of expectations (no matter if it is seen as a hobby or rather if the individual is getting prepared for official Conservatory auditions, etc.). We will play and / or focus on what the student wants / needs to go deep in (whatever music style of his / her interest, more theoretical aspects or rather practical ones), trying to obtain the maximum profit from the employed time, and placing as our priority the actual learning of the person as the main factor for her / his motivation.

My teaching method is flexible and always aimed at the needs of the student. As well as the instrument technique I would suggest an in-depth study in ear training, theory music and repertoire.

I've being teaching saxophone, improvisation, theory music and clarinet (for beginners) for all ages and abilities for almost 10 years now and, depending on which path the student is looking for, I will be thrilled to share and pass on the knowledge I have acquired throughout my teaching and artistic career.

Jaime
Clarinet and solfege lessons in English and/or Spanish
Hello, My name is Jaime and I am a Spanish clarinet player, composer, and teacher. With over years of experience playing the clarinet and having immersed myself in teaching for the last few years, I am currently completing my professional studies in clarinet and composition at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with professors Arno Piters (Royal Concertgebouw Orkest) and Hans Colbert (Residentie Orkest Den Haag). I see teaching not only as a way to pass on my (still growing) knowledge but also as a way to learn along with my students in a cheerful and inspiring way. During our classes, we will learn the basics of clarinet playing, as well as how to use these basics to build your own way of playing and learn simple songs, intermediate pieces, or world-class concertos! If clarinet is not your thing but you want to learn music theory I can also help you with personalized classes to suit your needs. Maybe you want to learn basic notation reading or solfege, or perhaps you want to audition for a renowned institution as the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. Whatever your need is I will find a way to articulate a plan we can follow so you can achieve success on your musical adventures. Aside from lessons on the students' place of residence, online lessons via skype or zoom can also be scheduled at a reduced price. I hope this helps you understand how I work and the way I could help you, but if you have any questions please feel free to contact me! Kind regards, Jaime
