About Me

Hello there! My name is Teodora and I am a professional cellist based in The Netherlands. I have been playing the cello for the past 20 years and still, I am getting more and more in love with it! If you are reading this, then maybe you feel the same way towards it as I do? Let me tell you a little more about it!

The cello is an extraordinary instrument, creating full, lustrous sounds that are truly sublime and very similar to the range of the human voice. And although it requires a bit of an investment, learning to play the cello is an extremely rewarding activity, generating benefits that last a lifetime. Not only will you develop the aptitude to produce music that comforts, excites, or moves someone, the actual learning process builds skills for the future and develops cognitive advantages in any age cello student.

Music education, especially one that involves learning a string instrument like the cello, is an excellent example of comprehensive learning. By combining mental and physical exercises in a structured way, music training stimulates and strengthens both your physical body and specific areas of the brain, such as memory, reading and math comprehension. Moreover, it also develops marketable skills that will serve you well into the future.

If you’ve recently decided to learn to play the cello or you’re still on the bubble about whether or not to take the plunge, I am definitely the person who can guide you through the beautiful journey of getting to know the instrument and music in general!

Teodora has been teaching me to play the cello for half a year now. As a beginner, it was quite a big step for me to start with the lessons. Teodora however, put me at ease right from te beginning. What I like about her lessons is that she is always giving me tips on how to improve specific elements , making my time practicing alone more rewarding and effective. I would recommend Teodora for anyone he would like to start playing the cello.
I’ve been learning how to play the cello from Teodora for over half a year now. I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. She is a very patient teacher, and she always tries to make the learning process a pleasant experience. When I am getting frustrated with my own mistakes, she makes good suggestions on how to improve them in a smarter way. I also like the fact that I have a choice in the repertoire we work on. That way, it rarely gets boring. She is also flexible with the schedule so that I can arrange the lessons after my regular working hours. Looking at the time we have spent together, I can definitely recommend Teodora as an excellent cello teacher.
I have been taking lessons from Teodora for a while now and she is a very friendly and warm person, as well as a very good cello teacher that knows how to create a pleasant, comfortable atmosphere. I play cello as a hobby and for me it was very important to find a teacher that can adapt to my level. And Teodora does exactly that, I don't feel pressured and have enjoyed every lesson that I had until now. Her technique, style, and way of playing the cello, show that the she has great and in depth knowledge of playing the cello. Thus, for those of you that are playing professionally or aiming do to so, I think that Teodora has much to offer. So check her out, she is amazing.

Sara Isabel
Professional Music Therapy sessions (individual or group)
I am a professional violinist and professional music-therapist. Music has been found to have curative, therapeutic, and other medical values for human well-being and its physical, mental, and social effects have been documented throughout history. In addition to its potential of relieving e.g. physical pain and stress, music has been considered as a powerful resource for the social aspects of healthcare and well-being, which suggests that music can provide and cultivate several aspects of human well-being. I have worked with different disabilities but I have focused my music-therapy work on deafness, autism, elderly with dementia and ADHD. I offer music-therapy sessions (individual or group) to work with people in personalised sessions. Contact me if you want to know more about it.

Santiago
Guitar and Music lessons from a CvA graduated teacher in Amsterdam
Learning to play the guitar can be an amazing experience at every stage of the process! My ultimate goal is to help my students to develop their skills and musical understanding by learning and playing music that they like. Therefore I adapt my teaching methodologies to the taste and needs of every student. Throughout every lesson, we will work on three main courses of development: technical aspects, theoretical knowledge, and performative practice. My classes are open for anyone who would like to enjoy exploring the universe of music: beginners and advanced, children and adults, you are all welcome to book the first lesson.

Sergio
Higher Graduate (with masters) in Cello and Conducting teaches music at all levels
My teaching method is scrupulously adapted to each student I have, regardless of the subject to work on (musical language, cello, music history, analysis, conducting, etc.) I always apply the Belgian teaching model, where I trained with my master's degrees in Conducting (Antwerp) and Historical Cello (Brussels). According to this model, the main thing is a living and practical teaching, taking understanding and not memory as the main learning engine.

María
Cours de violoncelle pour tous! / Cello lessons for everyone! / ¡Clases de Cello para todos! / Cellolessen voor iedereen!
Hello to everyone! My name is María, I am a Venezuelan Cellist. All my musical education was inside the musical program "El Sistema" in Venezuela. This education was based on preparing myself as a better human being though playing cello in orchestras, chamber music and as soloist. I am current studying my Master degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with Jeroen Reuling. In what consist my lessons? Cello classes for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced), it does not matter if you have never played cello before or if you are already studying, the important thing is to help you achieve the goals you want with this beautiful instrument. To have better results with practice, if it is necessary to help you with music theory, I will help you. As well, if you're looking for help in orchestral excerpts for auditions, I'm here for you! For kids, parental support is also important during some lesson, we are all a team and we need to work together to achieve the goals! Classes can be in person at your house or mine (just in Brussels, Belgium) or via videocall (Skype, Zoom, etc). The schedules are planned according to the time of the student and the teacher. Looking forward to meeting you and work together! Maria.

Ilona
Result-oriented professional cello instructor with 11+ years of experience
Hi everyone! My name is Ilona. I am a professional cellist and a cello teacher with a Master’s degree. My teaching experience is more than 11 years, with 3 years experience of online teaching. Online learning how to play cello is completely acceptable for all levels and ages from 8 years old.  Either you are a Zero Beginner or you are preparing to pass entry exam to conservatory - I will explain you how to practice to become more effective on cello. My current students range in age from 8 to 51 years old and come from all over the world. I always work for results, so our lessons may be longer than an hour at times simply because we haven't completed the lesson plan (with no extra pay). Before you begin learning the cello with me, you should understand two important concepts: when you play the cello, you use your body (arms, fingers) to create sound, and you use your soul and emotions to create music. We'll start by learning how to make sounds, which you'll later use to express your emotions. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any questions. I am currently only teaching online.

Ana
Violin and viola classes from a symphony orchestra member and music school teacher
In my classes, you will receive a lot of information about your instrument, posture, intonations, technique, and music expression. I can give you advice about music theory, how to act on stage, and reach your performing goals. Always feel free to ask anything you want to know, good communication and transfer of knowledge will speed up your progress. I teach children and adults, we can prepare together auditions, concerts, exams, or any program you would like to play for yourself.

Louana
Private lessons of Piano and Solfeggio for Beginners / Intermediates
Hello, My name is Louana, I am 28 years old and am currently a piano teacher for students ranging from 4 to 65 years old. Indeed, I started very young music with first 2 years of rhythm then 5 years of Solfege Jacques-Dalcroze and finally 12 years of piano including 10 at the Conservatory of Music in Geneva. (each year of study being validated by exams & diplomas) Today I continue to play for fun and give some of my time to teach a few students once a week. Class sessions are generally 45 minutes to 1 hour as proposed by the Conservatory. I teach with my old scores which allows a gradual evolution step by step. Obviously, I remain attentive to everyone's wishes, but I particularly teach classical music because in my opinion, these are the best bases allowing you to play what you want. I am obviously at your disposal for any further information or to arrange an interview at your convenience. Best regards, Louana

André
Piano Lessons - from children to adults, any level. Classical music, pop/rock, etc.
Hello! I am classical pianist with a Master's degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag. I teach Piano (and also Music Education) since 2016, to both children and adults. Teaching allows me to bring my passion and enthusiasm for music to the students, and I also find incredibly rewarding to guide and follow their musical and technical development! I am easily adaptable to the students' musical taste and expectations/goals in music learning, and I am also very mindful of how I communicate, according to the students' ages and personalities. I can teach classical music, pop, rock, or any other style. My approach consists of: giving you the necessary theoretical knowledge for what you wish to play; involving you actively in the choice of the pieces/songs you will play; setting up a long-term plan for your repertoire, so that your development is made step by step in a challenging - but achievable - way (and this way, you will feel more motivated!); giving you enjoyable and creative practicing strategies; creating a rich imagery revolving around the piece - by making up a story, relating the music to emotions, etc.; and also positive feedback! Thus, my lessons will allow you to: - Learn how to read scores. -Develop your musical understanding (from notes, rhythm, harmony, to musical taste, emotional comprehension of the music, or dive into aesthetic principles concerning the period and style of the piece,...). -Improve, step by step, until you are able to play that piece/song that you love. -Prepare yourself for exams. -Etc. The best thing is that it's possible for you to learn all this and have fun at the same time! Any question, don't hesitate to contact me.

The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play.

Rafaelos
Learn: Music Theory, Harmony and Analisys. Private or Group lessons.
Music Theory for all levels: In this lesson you will get deep knowledge and understanding of music. Either you are a complete beginner, an instrumental performer, either you want to prepare for entrance exams into music universities and conservatories, or just to strengthen some subjects, these classes are perfect for you. Together we are going to read, listen and analyze music and work towards understanding it in a musical, structural and compositional level. In addition, for the instrumentalists that may join the class, we can even discuss and work on a piece that you are studying at the moment and on your musical interpretation, regarding the piece's structure, analisys and time period.
