Violin or Piano lessons for all ages in The Hague.

Dear friend,

I would like to help you or your child to realize the creativity and beauty of music through instrumental music lessons. I like to integrate my lessons with a holistic approach to learning an instrument, with a focus on establishing a solid technique and facility on the instrument through the lessons without letting the mechanical technicalities of an instrument eclipse the musicality of playing an instrument and therefore the enjoyment of it. I can also teach music theory, history, and aural (ear) training. I am happy to teach any age, I have 6 years of teaching at Forres Preparatory school in Cape Town as well as teaching a couple of adults. Most of my experience is with children, however, I encourage adults to learn as learning an instrument for an adult is one of the most rewarding activities.

Currently, I am studying towards my Masters in Music Education at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague (2019-2021) with Liesbeth as my violin teacher. In terms of my own experience in music, I have performed as a solo violinist with the orchestra as well as being an ad hoc tutti violinist for the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, and with the baroque violin for the Camerata Tinta Barocca and Cape Consort. I have a great interest in world music, folk or ethnic music from all over the world as well as different approaches to teaching music (for instance Dalcroze eurhythmics) and performing. Because of the styles of music I have and I have performed with traditional African musicians and ensembles, performed with MusicDance021 interdisciplinary real-time composition project and attended a summer school in Dalcroze Eurhythmics. I seem to have a bit of a global approach to music, perhaps as I have received tuition in music for short or long periods of time in South Africa, Europe, California, China, and Australia.

Fantastic teacher. Really engaged with our son. She quickly discovered he loved animals and so made the music about animal sounds, which he loved!

Private Violin and Viola lessons for all ages and abilities
I am an experienced violin/viola teacher recently arrived in the Netherlands from Australia. I have a Bachelor of Music (Honours) from the University of Melbourne and am currently completing a Bachelor of Early Music at the Royal Conservatoire at the Hague. I have been teaching for more than 10 years, and since 2013 was running a strings program at a steiner school in Tropical North Australia, as well as running a busy teaching studio and conducting community orchestras in the area. I love teaching and consider it one of my main passions. I enjoy working with students of all ages, and have taught several adult students of varying abilities, as well as children as young as four. I aim for my lessons to be enjoyable, inspirational, systematic, and holistic (covering many different musical aspects and skills in one lesson). I am a friendly and patient teacher who believes in all my students and helps them be the best they can be.

Alba
Violin for begginers and intermediate level. For kids to teenagers or adults that want to learn how to play violin.
I am a student in the Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague. I am from Spain and I teach music and violin to students from 7 to 99 years old. My aim to teach is due to my passion for music, being it something that gives people lots of joy and I also consider it's a helpful tool to develop mental, emotional and social capacities. Exploring different feelings and learning how to express them is also a nice part of this job. This way, working with students and teaching them to give what they have on the inside resuts very satisfying for me, as well as seeing them reaching their goals and enjoying the music they love the most. I adapt the lessons to the student depending on his/her goal, requirements and I also let them express their own ideas and resolutions and why they want to learn to play violin. By these lessons I hope to help each child and adult enjoying music and acquiring multiple capacities as creativity, discipline and patience.
