From metal to blues to jazz - guitar lessons in Amsterdam

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been playing guitar for around 20 years. I started playing classical piano at age 5, but quickly got drawn to the guitar. Since I was 12 I have known that music was it, and I have devoted myself to deepening myself in music and teaching.

During my 20ish years of playing guitar, I've gotten into many musical styles; I am fluent in rock, classic rock, metal, punk, indie rock, blues, country, pop and jazz.

Over the years I've also composed a lot of music, both pop, rock, jazz and classical style-pieces as well as studied film composing.

I have a bachelor's and master's degree in Jazz guitar, and thus I am also in a very high level in music theory, and ear training - two things that are challenging and fun in all levels and essential to musicians.

I structure lessons after what my students want. Example topics can be:

- Working on a song
- Learning new chords
- Learning how to play solos
- Checking out music and transcribing it

The possibilities are endless. I always try to:
1. Keep music in the center; learning to play has to be fun and connected to reality
2. Encourage curiosity; music should be fun and related to what YOU think is beautiful!

I can teach beginners, novices and advanced players alike.

I am a performing and active musician, which means that I am dynamic in my playing and I practice hard every day. I therefore know how it feels and how difficult it can be, but I also know how rewarding it can be.

I also toured in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Denmark, Sicily, Mexico and I regularly play in and around Europe.

I also released several CDs, amongst them my debut album from 2019 Where The Fence is the Highest (TRPTK) and my second album Throw Stones (2020, Loumi Records).

I teach from my home or your home, depending on which gear we need for the lesson.

Most of all I want to share the love I have received from music - and what better way than to give the gift of music to other people.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My name is Teis and I have been playing music for a little more than 20 years.

I started playing classical piano at age 5, but got drawn to the guitar. I loved how quick I could learn to play really fun things and all the cool sounds I could learn to make.

During the 20 years of playing guitar, I've gotten to play different styles; I love playing both rock, classic rock, metal, punk, indie rock, blues, country, pop and jazz.

During the years I've also written a lot of music, both pop, rock, jazz and classical pieces as well as studied film composing.

I have a bachelor's and master's degree from the Conservatory of Amsterdam. I am in a very high level in music theory, and ear training too - things that are challenging and fun in all levels and essential to all musicians.

I structure lessons after what my students want. Example topics can be:

- Working on a song
- Learning new chords
- Learning how to play solos
- Checking out music together and observing things.

I therefore can teach beginners, novices and advanced players alike.

I am a performing and active musician. Besides playing on stages like the Bimhuis, Paradiso, Melkweg, Tivoli Utrecht, New Luxor Theater with my own band or other bands, I have also toured Europe a lot and released several CDs. I released my debut CD in 2019 with the record label TRPTK, and am currently composing for my 2nd album.

I teach either at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, my home or your home, depending on which gear we need for the lesson.
Most of all I want to share the love I have received from music - and what better way than to give the gift of music to other people.

Send me a message to arrange a first lesson, and then we will take it from there on! All you need is any child or guitar and I will get you started. See you!

Gustavo
Learn to be creative on your game, and get to know another music world
I specialize in Latin American music. My goal is not only to teach the student to play guitar (or to help him further), but also to get acquainted with various folk music forms from Latin America both in practice on the guitar but also through listening and researching the various forms. For the advanced guitarist to further expand his knowledge within the classical repertoire from Latin America with unknown works and for those who are interested, learning to compose is also one of my goals. Music on its width. Not learning to play songs but composing your own work.

Singing Lessons / Recorder (Blokfluit) lessons for all ages
I am a singer and recorder player, studying in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I can teach you recorder and singing and adapt to your tastes and needs. In both instruments, I focus as a teacher and performer, on a healthy, joyful and technically skilled way of playing and singing. With my students, I focus not only on the instrument sound production, but also on body posture, relaxation and organic movement. A happy, relaxed body produces a beautiful, natural and relaxed sound. What music style would you like to learn? Would you like to play folk music, to sing pop songs or walk through a more classical path? I have experience in different areas, having sang and played folk and jazz music and also studied in the Conservatorium for a long time. I can also help you with music theory, from the basic introduction to music to advanced solfeggi and rhythms. I graduated in Musicology and studied Music Pedagogy in Portugal before moving to Amsterdam. For little children I can also combine the playing of the instrument with more didactic activities mixed with body movement and dance! In the past I taught how to play and sing, from little children (4 years old) to adults with around 60 years old, in group sets and individual lessons. I can adapt to your needs and requests! And most of all, you will fall in love with music, all kinds of music and have loads of fun!

Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques. Alongside with that, I spend around 10 minutes every lesson on things such as ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest on the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. Since I grow up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.
