Reviews (6)

To date, Duleen has provided 3 lessons to my 10 year-old girls. They enjoy learning from him and look forward to lessons. I've been very impressed with his teaching method and think it will allow my girls to improve their skills and understanding of music.
Vriendelijk, rustig, duidelijk. Hij heeft een goede ervaring. Goede aanpak.
Ik nam eerst een proefles bij Duleen om te kijken of het klikte: dit was zeker het geval! Duleen is een jonge en zeer gepassioneerde muzikant die dit goed op zijn leerlingen weet over te brengen. Na 5 jaar 'pauze' in mijn altviool 'carrière' besloot ik dit jaar weer te beginnen en mede dankzij Duleen heb ik mijn plezier in het spelen weer geheel terug! Snel vervolg lessen geboekt dus.
Prima les. Duleen is rustig, respectvol, motiverend en inspirerend. Fijne manier van lesgeven en duidelijk kennis van de materie die hij overdraagt.
He is very professional and makes you fee comfortable with the new instrument, really valuable to start right in order to get a correct technique. So far I really enjoy his knowledge and approach to teach.

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.

Roberto
Violin lessons lessons for students of all levels and ages
Hello everyone, I am a professional violinist based in Amsterdam. I have been teaching for 5 years in Italy, Belgium, and now the Netherlands! I can teach in English, Italian, and French to students of all levels and ages. Teaching method and lessons: I like to have a flexible method, shaping my approach so that each of my students grows in confidence with their instrument. To ensure that my students are committed to this process, we will set specific short-term goals, depending on the technical needs of each of you, and adequate to your level. In addition to this, we will also focus our attention on some interpretative challenges behind the repertoire we will approach.

Fiachra
Violin or Viola Lessons for all ages and abilities
Greetings! I am currently studying viola performance and education at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I also completed a Diploma in Music Education and Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music before coming to The Netherlands. I have had lots of experience teaching in schools and privately, and I get so much joy teaching people and helping them learn an instrument. My main goal as a teacher is to help students find their passion and love for music and for playing an instrument. I am also very practical in my approach to teaching, always trying to make things as clear as possible for each and every student to understand. I have plenty of experience teaching people of all ages. I also have a good knowledge of individual personalities and temperament which helps me to tailor the lesson to suit you individually. When teaching young children, I find that using various different games with and without the instrument helps a lot with their understanding and development. This resonates well with their impressive abilities to play for many hours every day - something which I think is very important for young children to make the most of while they have it. My understanding of the lessons is that every student should come out with the best feeling of wanting to improve their playing, and I always try to motivate every student in whichever way works best for them. I am also very open to using different approaches when it is not working for the student, and I am known to listen very well to feedback like this. I am flexible with the styles of music I teach and have experience in many different genres. If you need some ideas, together we can find the music that suits you best. The majority of students who start out do so on the violin, and some change to viola some time later. Some students who begin their musical journey on the violin go on to play not only viola but other stringed instruments such as cello and double bass if they grow away from the violin at any stage - so choosing violin in the beginning will certainly give you the most options.

Violin Lessons: violin lessons for students of all ages
My violin classes are open for people of all ages and levels. You may have used to play the violin many years ago and are trying to get back at it but don't know how, you may have just started and you're looking for a teacher that can guide your first steps, you may be looking for a regular coaching for an already developed sense of musicality — my classes accommodate all of the above and more. Most of my pupils are already intermediate students that are dedicated into becoming the young violinists of the future, but that doesn't mean my class isn't for you if you are simply looking for a hobby! Music is about having fun together! I can teach in English (fluent), Portuguese (fluent), Spanish (fluent) or French (basic).

Every student is very welcome in my lessons. We'll start from where you are in your playing and I'll structure the lessons around your interests. So if you are a beginner or perhaps a more seasoned player, you are very welcome. If you have any questions about my lessons, I'll be happy to answer them!

Lucas
Learn how to play the violin at a beginners level or expand your skills at a higher level with fun and seriousness involved
My name is Lucas and I am 22 years old. I currently have a grade 8 in violin with the ABRSM curriculum, and have been playing the violin for over 15 years. While learning the violin, I have always been taught in a private manner, with a teacher just to myself so I would know exactly what kind of atmosphere you would need to learn quickly. The lessons I would provide are for any level of students, from a person that is just beginning or is maybe just interested in playing the violin to a bit more experienced players that are looking to improve their skills. I will make sure that you always have some work to do between lessons so that you can also improve your skills on your own and show me what you have learnt or practiced in between our lessons.

Filipe
Learn how to play violin in English, Portuguese and Spanish (suitable for all ages & abilities)
Hi! Originally from Madeira (Portugal), I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years. After graduating from Bachelor and Masters, both at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, I have decided to pursue my education in the teaching field, currently enrolled on a second master's degree, this time in teaching. In addition to already having a vast curriculum as a soloist or orchestral musician, I consider myself highly passionate about teaching, not only violin but also music theory. I have been very lucky to have had great teachers, who, in addition to have taught me the violin and the love for music, they have also shaped the person I am today. I can't find anything more rewarding than to share everything what I learned throughtout all these years!
