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.

About Me

I am a professional Spanish violinist currently living and working in the Netherlands. I have finished my master's studies in the Prince Claus Conservatory in Groningen last year and I already finished a Music-Therapy master in Spain. Because of that my work is based on teaching, performing, and also giving music-therapy sessions.

I really like to teach and have a personal approach to each student so I find out what is the best for each student to achieve their goals with the violin.

Education

Background Education:

+ Bachelor Degree in Classical Violin Performance (Spain).
+ Master Degree in Classical Violin Performance (the Netherlands).
+ Master Degree in Music therapy (Spain).

Experience / Qualifications

I have been teaching violin and music theory for more than 10 years now, to different age students (from 4 to 50 years old) and different levels. I also have experience teaching violin group class, and I also teach different music styles with the violin (jazz, country, improvisation).


I have been working in different health care settings for 7 years now. I have worked as a music-therapist in elderly homes, kid facilities and hospitals and I have focused my work on deafness, elderly with dementia, ADHD and autism. I am currently working as a violinist in different health care contexts in the Netherlands.

Reviews (4)

I'm happy I found Sara as a teacher. She is professional, attentive, full of useful advice and packs a lot into her lessons.
Useful lessons to improve the technique. Sara really paid attention to what to improve and was friendly, so the lesson was relaxed and pleasant.
the lessons are really helpful. I think Sara knows what she is doing and what to pay attention to, so I am sure that she can help me to improve my violin playing in the future!
I am a professional violinist currently living in Groningen. The violin lessons are for all levels and ages from technique and classical violin to a more modern and gypsy violin playing (jazz, improvisation). What you want to learn is up to you but I will help you to find out the best way to achieve your goal with the instrument. We can flexibly arrange the place and the frequency of the lessons each time we meet. Let's have fun making music together!!

Violin for everyone! Repertoire provided. ABRSM/Trinity possible
Hello! :) I'm a professional teacher/violinist with a “Master in education” from the Royal Conservatory. I teach either live or online from my studio located in the city center. I can also come at your place if you wish (I can reach different cities as I drive). Music making is guaranteed even through distance learning: you'll be provided with accompaniments and recorded music to support your learning process, giving so the opportunity of experiencing music making at its finest as you'll play often in a duo (violin and piano). You'll spare some money too as I will provide all the needed books and repertoire. You can play from your screen or even print at home the necessary sheets for the lesson rather than buying unnecessary extras. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

Nina
Drum lessons in Amsterdam or remotely (for beginners and intermediate level)
Hello, I am Nina from Amsterdam. After many requests from parents to give drum lessons for his or her children, I now have my own studio to give drum lessons. Adults are of course also welcome! :) I hope to be able to create lessons with you that match what you enjoy. The studio is located in Amsterdam - Schinkelbuurt with two professional drum kits and sound system. If this is too far or for someone else, classes at home and / or online are also possible! I play in several bands myself and will be able to transfer the experience I brought to different genres in the following techniques: - Stick technique - Brushes - Creativity - Hand technique - Improvisation - Timing - Relaxed position - Drum notation - New fills - Grooves I have performed in many different cities with my bands. We were also in the final of the Rob Acda Award last year and we have a lot of airplay at KINKFM. I will also occasionally invite another musician (s) if the need arises so that you can learn to play with them. Playing along with other musicians you learn to master your own instrument!

Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Targeted private drum lessons tailored to the student.
Before we start the lessons, a specific goal is first set. This can be anything (improving technique or reading skills, learning to play a particular song, learning to play the drums in a particular style, learning a basics, etc.). When the goals have been determined, a personal route is mapped out for you to achieve them.

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.

Composition Lessons by experienced composer in a wide range of genres
I am a 28-year old composer, electric guitarist and songwriter based in Den Haag, teaching composition, music theory, and score writing. I teach in English or in Greek. I am half Greek and half Scottish and I have been living in the Netherlands for the last 4 years. I offer lessons in all styles, to all age groups, and for any experience level (ranging from students who want to learn how to read and write music to create their first score, up to more experienced composers who are looking for fresh ideas and improving their skills to really make their music shine, or who are looking for help polishing their composition portfolio for entrance exams). Face to face lessons are preferable, but I also teach online. I am a patient and open minded teacher, and my desire is to help you learn what you want to learn, and make sure you enjoy and take pride in your music, explore a breadth of musical ideas that can inform your work, learn to express your musical ideas as best as possible and nurture your curiosity and excitement about the world of music creation ! My Credentials: I hold a Bachelors of Music degree from Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), and a Masters of Music from The Hague Royal Conservatory. My compositions have been performed in venues such as The Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam), TivoliVredenburg (Utrecht), Korzo Theatre (Den Haag), Casa de Musica (Porto), Onassis Stegi (Athens) and at music festivals including Music in PyeongChang (South Korea), Tectonics Athens (Greece), Gaudeamus Muziekweek (Netherlands). My experience as a performer range from classical guitar studies, to playing electric guitar in rock bands, as well as experience as an improviser, performer of notated contemporary classical compositions, creator and performer of ambient and electronic music. I also am very experienced in ambient and electronic-influenced guitar music, which has given me an in depth knowledge also of the guitar in combination with technology such as guitar effects, computer software and multichannel setups which expand the audio palette of the guitar. I have written songs, I have written orchestra pieces, I have worked as a DIY home producer, I have released albums, and I've performed in concert halls, rock venues, squats and festivals. I even some experience in beat-making. My music has been performed in and has taken me to several countries, including Portugal, The Czech Republic, The U.S.A., Canada, Korea, Greece, The U.K., The Netherlands. My Teaching style: My emphasis is to teach you based on your interests and your needs. The lessons are based around each individual student. You bring me the music you are creating and the skills you want to develop as a composer, and I build my lessons around that. My primary goal is help you develop your voice as a composer, so the starting point for our lessons will always be your music. My aim is always to help you find what the heart of your composition is about, and help you to bring this out and really make it shine. To help illustrate ideas about topics we discuss I will bring examples that can help inform the music you are creating, we will explore ideas of arrangement, orchestration, rehearsal leading and / or production to help flesh out your music, as well as music theory and using scores of other composers.

Primary and secondary school support and reinforcement classes
I give classes of reinforcement and scholastic support for children and young people of the ESO. I seek that the classes are enjoyable, so that the student can concentrate and be motivated. I seek to create trust and above all to maintain communication with the family, to make known problems that may have arisen and above all the achievements that we are achieving. In this way we can have an active monitoring of the educational process.

Sing from your room! Online singing lessons for young and old at your own pace (Classical and other styles)
Do you like to sing and do you want to develop your voice? Looking for a way to get away from it all? Maybe you now have the time to try out a new hobby? Great, because singing is great fun and healthy! During my online lessons we will explore the possibilities of your voice together. Developing a healthy, natural voice and fun are central. That is why the lessons are completely adapted to your qualities, taste and tempo. Together we work on a solid singing technique, breathing, articulation, interpretation, musicality and voice hygiene. We explore the classical singing repertoire and look for music that suits your voice. You can also take a trip to other genres (jazz, pop, musical, ...) You learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but with good singing technique you can handle many styles! Why you should come to class: - You have always wanted to learn to sing, with or without a specific goal in mind - You are curious about the possibilities to (further) develop your voice - You are looking for a creative outlet - You suffer from an often tired speaking voice and want to make it stronger - You sing in a choir and you want to work on your singing technique or you need some extra help with studying - You want to change your mind in a relaxing way - ... Whatever your motivation, you are always welcome! You can also take lessons together (with your friend, with the kids, ...). Do you have questions or are you unsure whether singing is something for you? Do not hesitate to contact me!
