Solfège & Hearing Training - Music Theory Preparation Courses

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Solfège is one of these indispensable tools that contributes to the development of musical hearing. With that a basis can be formed for the general musical understanding.

Through my role as a student assistant of various theory subjects (including solfège) at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, I have had the opportunity to teach students with many different ages and backgrounds.

My approach:
• The lessons are always in line with the environment and the theoretical knowledge that the student already has.
• Creative thinking is used in the lessons. This is done, for example, by improvising melodies or coming up with a second voice based on feeling.
• I also encourage critical thinking and listening. I do this by not giving too much pre-chewed information, but by an experiential approach.
• In practice I use different solfège methods (tonic sol-fa, or using numbers in a scale). My experience has shown that not every system is ideal for everyone. That is why I am flexible in my approach and I will always coordinate this
on my students.

Learn how to play the violin and read music step-bystep!
I use a step-by-step teaching approach based on The Suzuki Method, personalised and designed for each student, focusing on individual strengths and talents. My lessons incorporate music theory so that a deeper understanding of music can be met. This incorporation keeps the necessary theoretical component of music fun, interesting and alive. Students receive structural practice material, as well as their own favourite music to practice and master with my help and guidance. Teacher-Student duets are a fantastic and fun way to gain the skills needed to play with other musicians (Ensembles, Orchestra, Bands, etc.) I aim to empower the student to be their own best teacher whilst integrating discipline with proven practice techniques necessary for a solid foundation in violin playing.

Piano Inside Out - a complete introduction to understanding and playing piano
| Amsterdam or Haarlem | This class is defined by flexibility. I will teach you anything from inner workings of a piano, all the way to Liszt pieces, improvisation, analysis, sight-reading or arranging popular songs. The first lesson is reserved for my professional assessment and your exclamation of certain wishes - on what you would like to learn and at what pace. I send all relevant material before each lesson (including scores, infographics, or further reading material), so be prepared to have it with you when the time arrives! My mode of doing things is 'per lesson' - in other words - depending on your free time and spirit - with very flexible timing (regardless of the specified 'duration' of lessons).
