About Me

Hello!
My name is Julia, welcome to my lesson!
Although I am only 23, I have already four years of experience teaching as an employed teacher in a primary school and a secondary school. I have also trained as a Colourstrings Violin Teacher.
I believe that everyone can improve their musical skills and I love helping my students find their voice through music. I try to use methods that are encouraging and nourishing, giving my students challenges that make them love the process of learning.
As I myself am still a student - currently enroled in a Master Program in Codarts University of the Arts (Rotterdam) -, I am still very close to the challenges of learning violin, and of course to the joy of music making!
I like to combine my studies with working, both as a teacher and as a performer.
Let's make music together! :)

Hey there, Are you in need of a talented and fun-loving music teacher? Well, look no further! I'm your gal. First of all, let me just say that I love music. Like, seriously love it. And there's nothing that brings me more joy than sharing that love with others. That's why I've spent the last decade of my life teaching music theory, performance, and technique to students of all ages and levels. But here's the thing, I don't believe that music has to be all serious and stuffy. In fact, I think that learning music should be a fun and enjoyable experience. That's why I strive to create a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in my lessons, complete with jokes, puns, and maybe even some karaoke sessions (if you're lucky). Now, don't get me wrong, I take my job seriously. I am profesional cellist. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and a Master's degree in Music Performance, so you can rest assured that I know my stuff. But I also believe that learning music should be a joyful and exciting journey. So, if you're looking for a music teacher who can not only teach your students how to make them laugh, then look no further. I'm your girl. Let's make beautiful music together! From Classical to Modern music as Pop, latinoamerican, jazz, ...

Cello lessons in Dutch, Spanish or English (live or online)
Do you want to learn songs from around the world or invent your own? do you want to play happy birthday to your best friend with a cello? Let's explore together this beautiful instrument with pieces that you like, finding different ways to play one thing, becoming actors on the stage of music... Let's create games to develop creativity and technique, those that will help you to personalize your way of playing . With music, we learn much more than just playing pieces. I always thought about how the ancient Greeks introduced Music as an essential subject in school. Music was to heal, to entertain, to get to know yourself more. I'm just finished my studies in the University of Arts of Codarts (Rotterdam) and I can't deny I will always keep learning after finishing my degree. I'm looking forward to sharing some knowledge and to hear what you already know. What can I offer? Styles that we can work on: Classical, Folk, Jazz, Pop music. Languages that we can speak in the lesson: Dutch, English, Catalan or/and Spanish Skills that we can work on: basic techniques, jazz and folk techniques, play the cello while singing, percussion on the cello. How do I work? Each class will be individually prepared, in order to have the student goals in mind. In our first lesson we can get to know each other and then we will figure out what do you want and how can I help you. For BEGINNERS I teach the bow, finger positions and other basics with easy songs (with kids I add games to make it more entreating). Such as relating painting with playing, dancing with playing or literature with playing. For AVERAGE LEVEL we explore, with already some technique, how to play songs, finding a good sound and feel at ease with the instrument. Additional Activities: Once a month I plan a rehearsal with pianist to work on some repertoire of cello and piano. Meetings with other students are also arranged to play duos together. It's very necessary to play with people and not get stuck in our own individual studies! Do you have doubts or need more information? Don't hesitate to write me a message!

Everything you need to translate your ideas into your own preferred genre of music.
