I have been working as a singing teacher since 2011 and I'd love to pass on my knowledge and experience as a performer and songwriter to you.

About Me

Hi :)

I sing jazz and pop music with German, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese lyrics.

I play the piano, accompany myself with various percussion instruments and do sometimes also take up the ukulele.

I compose my own songs, and help others to write their own music and lyrics.

I do teach singing and (almost) everything related to it.

I am grateful to be able to pass on her experiences and even more grateful to learn something new from you every lesson.

I like to work artistically, scientifically, spontaneously, organized, loudly and quietly.
But above all, I love working with different people and offer 100% enthusiasm to every project, every song and every student.

Oleg
Trumpet(Technique, Jazz Improvisation) for all levels
I am a professional musician and Master student of Conservatorium van Amsterdam(Jazz Department). I have a wide experience of teaching and performing which I would be glad to share with you. On our lessons we can consider such aspects of performing as: - breathing - sound quallity - phrasing - lips flexibility and legato - articulation - sight reading - improvisation I am flexible in process of teaching. I can offer systematic and personal approach. According of your level, needs and interests we can: - make a plan of lessons and learn topics step by step - work with specific questions and material you choose - prepare for exams. For example, entrance exam in Conservatorium If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me!

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

Antonio

If you don´t have a clear idea of what you want to do, we can work out a plan together.

Stefano
Singing Lessons (Individual) - Pop, Jazz, Soul, Blues, Rock (in AMSTERDAM)
In my classes you will be deciding what to study, how to learn and in which way you want to approach singing and music in general. You will have the freedom to set up a plan and reach the designated goals with the help of my support. I will show you and teach you different singing techniques and guide you towards finding your personal and unique voice. I will adapt to your needs and will help you to achieve and surpass your goals! I strongly believe that: "The voice is an all-powerful instrument, capable of expressing deep feelings that perhaps no other musical instrument can do. It is directly connected with the soul and becomes the audible expression of it. It converts the invisible into visible, creates new sounds and colors, transforms emotion into music. The voice is a tool to discover, subject to continuous evolution and expansion; expansion that goes beyond our imaginable limits."

Trumpet, Improvisation & Music Theory Lessons (Beginner and Intermediate)
Did you ever hear a tune and you felt like you wanted to just play over it? Did you ever feel like you’d like to discover what makes a tune that special? I can help you to understand how music works and what makes it such an incredible art form! Listening to what you want and need, I can make a tailored plan with you on what you’d like to learn and get you going in the instrument and in your theory. Whether you’re a complete beginner of picking back the trumpet we can work together and make this journey as fun as possible. I teach Trumpet in the multiple styles that you might have come across - being jazz, salsa, disco, pop or funk. In case you’d like to learn more about how to improvise on the trumpet we can also tackle that and get you going, all while having fun! I teach all ages and from absolute beginner to Intermediate players. I speak English, Portuguese, Spanish, and I’m also taking my steps into learning Dutch, even though music is such a universal language. I live in Amsterdam and you can learn at my studio in NDSM, or I can come and meet where you are! It is also possible to arrange lessons in the center of Amsterdam, close to Centraal Station. About me? I’m Luso-american musician who moved to Amsterdam to study jazz trumpet at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where I’m currently finishing my bachelor degree. I started playing the trumpet when I was 9 years old, and since then my passion for music just kept on growing bigger. My main focus as a jazz musician was big band playing, where I’m specialised in lead trumpet playing, however I kept myself open to different styles being part of Afrobeat bands, playing in small formations, such as trios or just playing some groovin’ music from Earth Wind & Fire or Kool & The Gang.
