Fun and instructive CELLO LESSONS for all levels in Bezuidenhout (DEN HAAG) and ONLINE

I am a music teacher with a keen interest on helping my students to develop their musical identities and technical abilities.

Learning an instrument can be a fun and rewarding activity at any age, no matter if you want to become a professional musician, or just want to enjoy an artistic leisure activity. Learning music improves coordination, social and emotional skills, and makes us smarter. And music is something everyone needs in their lives, no matter the age, background or profession!

I have more than fifteen years of teaching experience. Throughout this time I have met students of very different backgrounds, ages and approaches to the instrument, who have inspired me a lot. For me, teaching is also a part of my lifelong learning of the instrument, which enlightens me every time. Also, being an active performer who is used to face a wide variety of styles makes me a more versatile teacher.

According to my own experience and philosophy, the best teacher is the one who teaches you how to become your own teacher. I do my best to follow this approach in my lessons, enhancing the student’s autonomy and own identity.

I use a bunch of different methods and resources, which helps me to match the needs, musical taste and level of each student. I like to play a lot with my students from the very beginning, so I can help them to improve their intonation and rhythm in the most efficient way, and we have more fun playing together! A special focus is put on keeping a natural and relaxed body posture while playing, in order to produce an open sound and be able to play with comfort. Also, as you might have noticed by browsing through this website, I am especially fond of baroque music, so if you are too, I will be happy to focus on this repertoire, or even introducing you to the baroque cello. But other styles are most welcome as well!

What is included in my lessons:

-Personal method adapted to the individual needs of each student
-Sheetmusic
-Music theory basics
-Leads on finding further coaching on music theory
-Advice on purchase/rental of a cello
-Newsletter with cello-related content

If you are not able to come to my place or you live elsewhere, I also offer online lessons for non-beginner students.

Learn Cello, how to read music, and get to know more music
For anyone who wants to learn the cello, get better at it, and have fun with it! We will work on the fundamental things (how to hold, how to read), training of muscles and the brain with exercises, the mindset, and the sound, so that you (or your child) can grow more confidence, enrich the everyday life, and most importantly, have fun making music:) I will happily help you find your instrument. At the moment I have one full size cello and bow that I can either lend (with monthly cost) or sell.

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.

Madeleine
Former cello student at the conservatory offers cello and music theory lessons
From the first lesson that I gave, I felt that teaching fascinated me, and this for many reasons: the fact of sharing knowledge or feeling the other progressing and knowing the instrument better and better. , but also the fact that the course is a moment of sharing, as enriching for the person who teaches as for the person who learns. Thus, I am very attached to the fact of being above all listening to the desires and needs of my students, in order to provide them with what suits them, while allowing them to progress effectively. I always try to understand the way of functioning of the person, in order to adapt to him what I propose to him. I want to give him keys that will allow him to work independently, while being present to answer his questions, and follow his development. Finally, I realize that it is important to love playing music, and I want to transmit the passion that drives me to people coming to me; but I also wish to convey the desire to play with music, a subtle nuance but nevertheless opening up a considerable field of possibilities.

[Skype, Face Time, Zoom] Online cello lessons from the teacher Frankfurt/Darmstadt/Mannheim, beginner-advanced
I study at the Musikhochschule Mannheim and at the Blackmore Academy Berlin. I have worked both as an orchestra musician with renowned orchestras such as the Hr-Symphonieorchester and the Museumsorchester Frankfurt and also as a soloist with the Geringas Chamber Orchestra. I have attended many international courses with, among others: David Geringas, Reinhard Latzko, Jan Ickert and Martti Rousi. I teach in German, Russian and English. I design the lessons according to the student's wishes. I am particularly interested in further development in order to cope with increasingly difficult tasks, for example the section leader in the orchestra. I attach great importance to literature from all stylistic epochs from baroque to modern, including popular music. I like to teach beginners according to Gabriel Koeppen's cello school, volumes 1-3 and the Suzuki method. I regularly arrange works for my students' cello sambles and, at the request of the students, music that has not yet been rewritten for cello.

“The cello is like a beautiful woman who has not grown older, but younger with time, more slender, more supple, more graceful.” — Pablo Casals “I am dying: it's a beautiful word. Like the long slow sigh of the cello: dying. But the sound of it is the only beautiful thing about it.” — Sonya Hartnett “Actually, music gave me the support when I needed it. I would never have gone to college unless I'd gotten a piano scholarship. And now I'm so glad I got to learn to play the cello, which is a different experience, you're flexing a different muscle, but it's beautiful because it is music.” — Jamie Foxx
