Violin tuition, Piano tuition and composition/ improvisation instructor

I have been teaching violin and piano for a number of years and have recently made the transition to teaching online!
I was trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and I am very happy to teach all ages and skill sets on both Violin and Piano.
While being classically trained, I have interests in many different genres of music, I run and play with a Gypsy Jazz band, a tango duo and a Ceilidh band and I have strong love of Eastern European folk and Klezmer. Even if I'm not familiar with a certain genre i'm very happy to learn new things, so don't be worried about bringing me unusual pieces of music, or even your own compositions. I have found that teaching is constant a learning curve and no two students are the same, and its always fun to experience something new!

About Me

Hi there,
I am a professional violinist living in Leeds, having just completed my Bmus Honours at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
I have a wide plethora of both performance and teaching experience in many different fields. I started off playing the violin in orchestra's as a young child, both as a a member of the violins and as a soloist, and performed and won a number of competitions on both violin and piano.
In later life, I've developed an interest in a huge variety of music, I play with a Klezmer band, a gypsy jazz band, a tango duo and regularly get work with orchestra's and string ensembles. Along side this I spend much of my free time writing music across a wide range of genres, though unfortunately I feel inadequately trained to teach composition at this point in time!

Any ages and abilities are welcome.
Regrettably, at the current time I am only able to teach online, but on the plus side of that, it means I have been able to meet and teach people on the opposite side of the country.

Education

I studied Violin performance at the Royal Northern College of Music, graduating in 2019.
Prior to that I was taught by some of the countries most illustrious instrumental teachers, including Dr Robert Jacoby.

I am impressed by Oscar's teaching. I get so many new informations although I learn to play the piano already for 5 years. simply great! just try a lesson. It's worth!
Oscar is a great teacher!
Hello, my name is Oscar and I am a Violin and Piano teacher from the UK, now living in Berlin. I've been teaching and performing on both instruments for 5 years, during, and after my studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. I have taught children from the age of four, up to adults in their late sixties, and I find all spectrums of age and ability rewarding and engaging to work with. Regarding Violin tuition, I am happy to teach up to any level. On the piano I however, I currently prefer to teach up to an ABRSM grade 8 level, and not far above it. My musical endeavours, whilst focused predominantly on the Classical style in my early childhood, have become quite varied and I am a great lover of many different styles. I play regularly in Klezmer bands, Celtic Folk groups and I run a Gypsy Jazz Collective, besides performing with Orchestra's, Small string ensembles, and as a Solo Violinist. Whilst I wouldn't consider myself to be an expert, I thoroughly enjoy guiding people through the early stages of learning to improvise, and I am equally comfortable working with students in this way as I am teaching in a more tradition, classically orientated manner. I look forward to hearing from you! Oscar

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

Personal Music Lessons(guitar, piano) for all ages
Dear prospective student, I offer lessons on classical and acoustic guitar, and on piano! The most important thing for me in my lessons is to give the possibility to my students to find theirselves through music. We will talk about what you like and we will adapt songs and styles to your preferences. It is important to enjoy what you’re learning! Then the lesson becomes more fun! In the lessons we can practice different skills based on what interests you. For example songwriting and improvisation. In this way you can emotionally connect with the material you play and find emotional growth! We can also practice your music theory skills so you know basic rules of music and understand a piece better! Or simply and nicely, play music together and improve your skills on your chosen instrument! If you are interested, contact me and we can set together goals based on your level and achieve great results!

Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.

I want to follow each student's interests, It's very important that they enjoy the lessons, therefore I'll do my best to keep them motivated! I hope we can make music together soon :)
