Singing Lessons (Individual) - Pop, Jazz, Soul, Blues, Rock (in AMSTERDAM)

In my classes you will be deciding what to study, how to learn and in which way you want to approach singing and music in general. You will have the freedom to set up a plan and reach the designated goals with the help of my support.
I will show you and teach you different singing techniques and guide you towards finding your personal and unique voice. I will adapt to your needs and will help you to achieve and surpass your goals!

I strongly believe that:
"The voice is an all-powerful instrument, capable of expressing deep feelings that perhaps no other musical instrument can do. It is directly connected with the soul and becomes the audible expression of it. It converts the invisible into visible, creates new sounds and colors, transforms emotion into music. The voice is a tool to discover, subject to continuous evolution and expansion; expansion that goes beyond our imaginable limits."

About Me

I'm a Rnb, Soul, Pop, Jazz singer and pianist originally from Italy currently living in the Netherlands. I was born in Switzerland to a Swiss father and a German mother but I grew up in the south of Italy.

Though interested in music since childhood, I pursued a professional course of study at the Sain Louis College of Music in Rome, where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in jazz voice with minors in jazz piano, improvisation, jazz arrangement and classical harmony. During this time I spent one exchange semester of the academic year 2016/2017 at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy in Leipzig, Germany.

I have studied with some of Europe's best-known singers in Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. These are all countries I have been living in as well.

In 2017 I released my first album 'Love Through My Eyes' under my birth name Stefano and in 2020 my second album '#tellyourheart' with my stage name Stemin. You can find both albums on all major music streaming platforms.

I strongly believe that: "The voice is an all-powerful instrument, capable of expressing deep feelings that perhaps no other musical instrument can do. It is directly connected with the soul and becomes the audible expression of it. It converts the invisible into visible, creates new sounds and colors, transforms emotion into music. The voice is a tool to discover, subject to continuous evolution and expansion; expansion that goes beyond our imaginable limits."

Very good teacher, patient and professional)
My first lesson with Stefano was amazing!! I had never taken singing lessons before, and he did everything to make me feel at ease and comfortable. He’s also super knowledgeable and has given me great pointers on how to improve my technique as well interpretation! On top of this, he’s allowing me to focus on the genres of music that I am passionate about and tailoring the lesson to that. Finally, he’s a warm, kind person which makes the lessons more enjoyable as well! Would absolutely recommend!
The best, my child is 5 years and he enjoyed the class with Stefano a lot !!
Singing has always been a passion of mine but I always did it alone and I never had the courage to sing in front of others or take singing lessons. After overcoming my fear, I booked some singing lessons with Stefano. Stefano provided useful vocal exercises to strengthen my voice, helpful tips on how to make my singing more colourful and dynamic and most importantly a safe space to express myself. He encouraged my to find my own voice and thereby helped me overcome my shyness. I learned how to use my voice better and that I can connect to my emotions through music. Overall, I would recommend booking some singing lesson with him if you are interested in finding our own voice and want to connect to your soul through singing.
Not just a singing teacher, but by the way also the best vocal coach you can get hold of at this moment and in this area of the Netherlands (so take your chance...;-)). For about 3 years I had a serious problem with my vocal chords (incomplete closure) and a dislocated larynx. I started to be in contact with Stefano by chance asking him to show me some (singing) exercises additionally to my treatment at the ENT-department of Martini Ziekenhuis Groningen as well as an ongoing therapy at a professional trained speech therapist. To cut a long story short: Within a couple of lessons and dedicated exercises he succeeded in re-positioning my larynx and got rid of my incomplete vocal cords closure, meanwhile the medical specialists had decided that the only cure could possibly be an operation... As a ‘side-effect’ I am now able to sing and control my voice like I have never been able before and could never have imagined that this was possible to achieve by just some simple but individually chosen exercises and practice. Grazie!

Learn how to play Piano (Classical, Jazz, Pop) Piano Lessons
A Piano class with different specialisations: Classical, Pop, Jazz, HipHop, etc.. This class is suited for people who have zero or little knowledge and experience in piano playing. We can decide in which direction to go style-wise, but we will start from the basics, reading music, working on your touch and technique, learning basics theory. I'll keep the program light but challenging. As the level rises we can also explore some ear training and harmony.

Learning the basics of classical singing technique
This class is suitable for anyone wishing to learn about the voice. I teach people that already sing and want to develop further their technique and repertoire but also people who have never sang before and who want to learn how to use their voice for the first time. I am a very passionate teacher who enjoys finding the right tools to make each person enjoy more their singing. We will focus a lot on connecting the voice with the breath and the body and on releasing tension from all the muscles that work together to create the sound. You might think that you will have to sing all kinds of high opera aria's during this class. Don't worry, this is not true of course! You can sing any music you like, including other music styles. You will learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but this will help you develop your voice for any kind of genre. You are very welcome to do a try-out lesson. During this lesson we can experiment with all kind of easygoing exercises and you can see if my way of teaching is what you are looking for and what you feel comfortable with!

Do you want to learn how to play saxophone in Amsterdam?
Music is the best way of communication in the world, the most international language and an easy way of sharing. Teaching means a lot for me; it allows me to pass on beautiful things I have learnt and at the same time to improve thanks to my students' feedback. Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results. We can work out many different topics together, such as learning tunes, technique, improvising, as well as approaching theory, reading, circular breathing, altissimo register and multiphonics... The lessons usually take place in my studio close by Javaplein in Amsterdam or by my house in Bos en Lommer. I work mornings and evenings as well as in the week end. Saxophone is fun! Contact me and get a first lesson as soon as possible, I am looking forward to meeting you.

Classical & Pop Singing, Music reading and Music History
Hello all! I am a Mexican Musicologist and singer based in Amsterdam. I have been teaching for almost 7 years to different age ranges. //During the Singing lessons you will learn how to breathe and use the 'right' muscles for singing, voice exercises, repertoire and how to improve your music ear, it is basically a relaxing therapy, trust me. We will find together and based on your taste what songs you would like to work on! // The Music Theory lessons are for the ones who want to learn how to read music scores, no matter your level for sure I can keep challenging you with exercises and funny dynamics. Please be patient, to learn music language takes time... //In Music History I specialize in Classical repertoire, so why is Beethoven so good? Why is Mozart so famous around the world? what should you 'listen' when you listen academic music? Adding to this I also compare the music development with other arts and movements, so bring enough paper and pens for this lesson!

Eduardo
Saxophone, Clarinet, Piano and Music Theory classes taught by graduates in Music Performance
I am a graduate in Bachelor´s Jazz & Modern Music Performance at the Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona (Spain). I am offering physical and online lessons in Music Theory (harmony, composition, solfège ...), Improvisation and Instrument (Saxophone, Clarinet and Piano). Lessons are addressed to every student profile, regardless of age, level of expectations (no matter if it is seen as a hobby or rather if the individual is getting prepared for official Conservatory auditions, etc.). We will play and / or focus on what the student wants / needs to go deep in (whatever music style of his / her interest, more theoretical aspects or rather practical ones), trying to obtain the maximum profit from the employed time, and placing as our priority the actual learning of the person as the main factor for her / his motivation.
