Piano lessons for all ages and levels in Dutch,English.Always wanted to learn the piano but never got the chance?No worries, I can help you!

Hello everyone,
I am piano docent in Conservatory and performing pianist.
I give private piano lessons to students of all ages and levels. Are you an enthusiastic beginner or do you want to pick up again after some time?
Toddlers and preschoolers from 3 years old can take their first steps in the world of the piano. Young adults and adults are also very welcome!

The piano lessons take place at my home in Berchem or online via Zoom or Skype. Due to the corona crisis, taking piano lessons online has become popular, although it can still be done at home without a problem. I live a short distance from Berchem station .

During the lessons I will take into account specific wishes, such as preference for classical or popular music. I use a piano method suited to your age. No prior knowledge of music is required.

I will open the world of music through the basics of piano playing. You don't know where to start? No worries, in this class you will learn everything about fingers, pianos and posture!
My goal is to encourage you to pursue your passion now, or to bring out the best in you.

I have been active as a pianist for more than 20 years. I graduated as a Master of Music.

Greetings
Sana

Reviews (21)

Mijn dochter is 5 jaar oud en volgde net een eerste pianoles bij Sana. Zowel zij als ik waren erg verrast en enthousiast over deze eerste les. Op een half uurtje tijd heeft ze al erg veel geleerd en toen we buitenkwamen vroeg ze: ‘de les was super leuk, wanneer mag ik terug?’.
This was my first lesson and it was fantastic. Sana is a dedicated, enthusiastic and motivational teacher. I look forward to more!
Very welcoming and enthusiastic teacher
Ik voelde direct een klik met de lerares en was direct op mijn gemak bij haar, iets wat voor mij niet vanzelfsprekend is. Ik heb echt het gevoel dat ze mij veel kan bijleren en kan bijsturen i.v.m. pianolessen.
Teaches on a personal level but with energy and quickly takes you to a higher level.

Guitar lessons for beginners to advanced players in person or online
If you want to get better at playing the guitar and music in general, this class is for you. Over the years of playing and studying music with guitar as my main instrument, I have amassed a great deal of knowledge, skill, information, etc. which I would like to share with all the seekers. There are endless subjects to be discussed when it comes to music and guitar. And, since everyone is different and are aiming at a different goal, I do not use a "one size fits all" approach with these lessons. However, a number of topics could be touched upon and thoroughly studied. Some of the standard topics that I could cover in the lesson are as follows: 1. Chords, voicing, etc. 2. Playing tunes 3. Improvisation 4. Arrangement 5. Transcription 6. Harmony analysis 7. Technique 8. Arpeggios 9. Ear training 10. listening 11. Playing in a group 12. Recording guitar and etc.

Piano lessons given by an Antwerp's Conservatory Master's Student
Do you want to learn how to play piano? Do you want to have music in your own hands? In this class, you can learn how to play this beautiful instrument as well as develop your technique and musicality. You will also learn and develop music theory knowledge, for instance, reading scores, basic harmony, and rhythm. I have 20 years of experience playing the piano and I love to share my knowledge and love for the instrument! I am a classically trained pianist that is now studying composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. As a pianist, I worked as a private teacher, and as an accompanist. I am familiar with classical repertoire as well as music from the 20th and 21st-century. If you have a specific kind of repertoire or piece in mind we will work on it! If you are unsure about what to play, I can give you suggestions and show you different repertoire so you can choose something that truly captivates you. The most important thing is that you develop or continue to grow your love for music and the piano!

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level/Beginner/ Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons with a focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms from a broad base of musical genres. Classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. Each lesson is designed to keep the student at the peak of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing their own technical skill. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their passion to the music they want to play. In the first lesson, we can get to know each other and you can get an idea for how the lessons will be taught while letting me know what elements you'd like to focus on in the future.

Felipe
Singing lessons: Vocal technique oriented to diferrent styles. (Opera, Jazz, Pop, Rock) Breath managment, body consciousness, placement.
I´m a profesional Opera Singer, who is also giving lessons in vocal technique since 7 years. This class is for begginers and intermedium level singers who want to improve the manage of their voices. The class starts with different vocalizations and breathing exercises to warm the body and start to understand how the voice works. Then we start to sing in order to apply the new concepts to different songs. The class its adaptable to every pupil, because everyone has their one vocal history, which means, they have different problem, which need differents aproaches.

Dominyka
Singing Lessons with a Certified Vocal Coach for all ages and levels. Prof. voc. training for any style:POP/JAZZ/RNB/ROCK/MUSICALS/CLASSICAL
Dominyka is a singer and a vocal coach that is currently living in The Netherlands. She plays piano, violin and writes her own music. Over the past decade she had a chance to graduate from the Royal Conservatory in The Netherlands with Bachelor's and Master's diploma in jazz singing and pedagogical minor studies. She had a chance to be behind the scenes in various TV shows, win several vocal competitions, participate in various music festivals as a singer and she truly developed her ears and her knowledge that she is now also helping others to find their own unique singing voice. She has developed her knowledge about vocal technique, CVT method, stage presence, body language, story telling, composition, writing, improvisation, and so on... with various great teachers from all over the world. As well as, she had an honour to participate in workshops of Snarky Puppy, Dianne Reeves, Dena DeRose, Bob Stoloff, Norma Winstone, Fay Classon, etc. In addition, she took a course of Stevie Mackey, Cheryl Porter and had had lessons with Natalie Weiss. "I feel like voice is a unique thing and music is such a good therapy. I believe everyone can sing, and I believe that everyone could sing greatly if they are patient and put work in it." - Dominyka "I promise that with our singing lessons you will learn more about your own voice and that you will develop your own sound as a singer. We work on warm ups/warm downs, breath support, vowel placement, vocal effects, vocal colour, dynamics, articulation, stage presence, high notes - power singing (belting), and so much more. My goal is to have a good time and spend our lesson's time wisely while we achieve the best results within singing. If there is a need I can also help you to broaden your knowledge about the repertoire that is suiting to your voice colour, recording sessions, live performance situations, "a workout plan for singing", songwriting/composing, music theory, and such." P.S. ALL STYLES ARE WELCOME ! (pop/jazz/rnb/musicals/and so on)

Gema
Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Emma
Learn to Sing with a Qualified Opera Singer with 6+ years teaching & professional performance experience.
Whether you're a beginner who just wants a confidence boost, or someone with a music background who wants to take your technique up a notch, I'd be so happy to make music with you! The principles of music-based vocal & breath work have such power, & will not only make you feel more oxygenated, but will bring out a strength of voice & character that you didn't know you possessed! I am/have been Peripatetic Vocal Coach at 2 Independent Girls High Schools, 2 Preparatory schools (one of which is all-boys), and teach several homeschoolers (one of whom lives in Zambia, and is online). I'm confident that I can give you the same sound pedagogical experience online that you would receive on site. My current online students live in China, Kyrgstan, New York, Zambia, Cape Town and Switzerland. Here's what one of my mature pupils from 2019 had to say: "I have always loved singing, but never had the confidence to follow through with my passion. As an adult it can be pretty daunting. I had a couple of lessons with Emma, & through her encouragement, patience & great teaching skills, my confidence grew .. She inspired me to believe in myself and my ability to sing, especially when I did not believe it myself. She is a tremendously positive, engaging & fun teacher, & I always came out of her lessons feeling better than I had walking in, & looking forward to the next lesson!" Others in 2022 said: "I now feel that I can sing well beyond 45mins, whereas previously with another coach, it was all that I could manage in a day! I'm also not afraid of high notes anymore, as I've been taught how to approach them healthily and safely." "I have been singing this song for a while, and haven't been able to sing those tops. In one lesson, you've shown me, as a tenor, how to do so - and comfortably!" Colleagues of mine at schools that I teach at have said of my lessons: "It is a privilege to listen to you teach." "I have never heard sounds like that coming from our department!" So what are you waiting for? Join me online, from a vocally safe and sunny home studio, & let's start from where you're at, make music, & have FUN doing it!

Lawrence
Singing lessons in English for all levels by professional voice teacher, vocal coach and singer
I'm a former New York City voice teacher/coach, professional singer and an award winning composer who has relocated to Berlin. I've taught with the most reputable children's musical theatre organizations in NYC (TADA!, Brooklyn Children's Theatre, The Neighborhood Playhouse) with students of all ages as well as private students and I've worked with Broadway stars such as Laura Osnes, Karen Mason and Ron Bohmer, who have also recorded my music, and I'm excited to bring my 20 yrs of teaching experience to Berlin! I teach songwriting as well, if that is something you're interested in. I'm a classically trained singer who performed with the San Francisco Opera and other companies both in opera and musical theatre for many years. Though I specialize now in musical theatre, I am happy and comfortable teaching you to sing in whatever style you prefer. The basics are the same! In our lessons, we will work on breath, correct vowel pronunciation, placement, diction, etc... as well as getting rid of the tension and habits that keep us from singing freely and beautifully. We will also work on the musical and dramatic aspects of the material we choose together, so that you will feel comfortable at an audition or a performance. And I keep lessons fun so that you can both learn and progress each week AND enjoy yourself! Whether just starting out or a professional who needs help working on an audition or role, I can help you reach your goals!

Deborah
Group lesson Singing Pregnant: Group Singing during pregnancy. Online possible too.
Singing gives relaxation; the exercises used in singing technique such as low breathing and relaxation exercises are also pleasant and useful when you are pregnant. Furthermore, research has shown that the unborn child already responds to music. For example, music that is often repeated during pregnancy provokes a calming response when the baby is born. Also the voice of the mother is recognized immediately after birth. Deborah would therefore like to start with a singing group for pregnant women. Besides the exercises, we sing canons, polyphonic music and lullabies in different languages ​​and styles.
