    About Me

    Currently studying in Coservatorium van Amsterdam, jazz department as jazz vocalist, I grew up in a musical household with my father being a trumpet player, mother - violin player and teacher. From early age I studied classical piano, while starting to sing and compose my first songs. Later on I continued my studies as a jazz musician in one of the best music high schools in Latvia.

    Learn how to play Piano (Classical, Jazz, Pop) Piano Lessons
    A Piano class with different specialisations: Classical, Pop, Jazz, HipHop, etc.. This class is suited for people who have zero or little knowledge and experience in piano playing. We can decide in which direction to go style-wise, but we will start from the basics, reading music, working on your touch and technique, learning basics theory.

    Learning the basics of classical singing technique
    This class is suitable for anyone wishing to learn about the voice. I teach people that already sing and want to develop further their technique and repertoire but also people who have never sang before and who want to learn how to use their voice for the first time. I am a very passionate teacher who enjoys finding the right tools to make each person enjoy more their singing. We will focus a lot on connecting the voice with the breath and the body and on releasing tension from all the muscles that work together to create the sound. You might think that you will have to sing all kinds of high opera aria's during this class. Don't worry, this is not true of course! You can sing any music you like, including other music styles. You will learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but this will help you develop your voice for any kind of genre. You are very welcome to do a try-out lesson. During this lesson we can experiment with all kind of easygoing exercises and you can see if my way of teaching is what you are looking for and what you feel comfortable with!

Additionally, this class can teach you how to quickly develop a fluid communicatory dynamic with new sound engineers or visa versa, encourage productive and precise communication from sound engineer to recording artist. Other insights could include consultation for Future Sound Engineers and Recording Artists such as: where to make their sounds fuller, rounder, where to take breaths and/or change rhythms or shorten syllables where needed; how to take different creative songwriting or beat-building approaches to music. This course is only given in English. This is for individuals that are striving towards voice quality and enhanced composition in the English language. This is not a voice class nor a language class.

    Classical & Pop Singing, Music reading and Music History
    Hello all! I am a Mexican Musicologist and singer based in Amsterdam. I have been teaching for almost 7 years to different age ranges. //During the Singing lessons you will learn how to breathe and use the 'right' muscles for singing, voice exercises, repertoire and how to improve your music ear, it is basically a relaxing therapy, trust me. We will find together and based on your taste what songs you would like to work on! // The Music Theory lessons are for the ones who want to learn how to read music scores, no matter your level for sure I can keep challenging you with exercises and funny dynamics. Please be patient, to learn music language takes time... //In Music History I specialize in Classical repertoire, so why is Beethoven so good? Why is Mozart so famous around the world? what should you 'listen' when you listen academic music? Adding to this I also compare the music development with other arts and movements, so bring enough paper and pens for this lesson!

    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."
