French Horn (modern / historical) and Music Theory with professional

Hello ! I am French historical and modern horn player based in The Hague. I play Horn since I was 4 years old and I have two Master degrees in modern horn and in natural horn. I offer you lessons on modern AND historical instruments, as well as music theory. I work with all ages, all levels, all objectives, and I can even work with other brass. If you want to discover the instrument or perfect it, if you need theory support or practice help, I will adapt my methods to your needs to offer you a quality musical time ! I teach children and adults since 2017, and I truly love leading people in their way to an enjoyable, musical and informed brass playing.
My lessons include warmups, technique, working on pieces of various repertoire, playing in duo with me and more. For music theory, I like to come up with playful exercises of my own according to the student's needs and level.
Horns are so fun !! Discover new instruments, sounds, techniques and styles.

Nicolas has a friendly approach in his horn teaching backed by his high professional standard with very good ears. His feedback is to the point and focused on building up in small steps for long term improvements. His lesson on resuming practice after a break was very useful, which I’m sure will benefit me repeatedly in future. He also very kindly helped me look for a mouthpiece and instrument, which again was very useful. If/when face to face becomes possible, I’d love to get lessons on historical horn from him!
Nicolas is very nice teacher. He focuses on the foundation of piano playing and gives helpful suggestions of where we need to work on currently and how. He also sends exercises according to my level right after the lesson.
Nicolas is an ecellent French teacher with an (linguistic) eye for detail. He uses the surroundings to make our class a relevant experience for me, so that I get to practice French for daily use. He also takes the time to explain the vocabulary and grammar until it makes sense and I can use it in my conversations. All in all, Nicolas is a patient and dedicated French teacher that I would highly recommend!
Nicolas is a fantastic French teacher, very patient and makes the lesson fun for my daughter.
Nicolas is very pedagogical. My 5-year-old daughter loves her kindness and patience. Simple and accessible exercises, it progresses quickly.

Roberto: “I strongly believe that a good teacher is the one who can bring out and develop the potential and personality of the student without locking him in books, notions and unnecessary mental cages, traps in which it is very easy to fall”. Graduated in classical music as bass-baritone, he worked for 10 years as a soloist and chorister in many productions and with internationally renowned conductors. He attended the last year in vocal jazz at the Royal Conservatoire of Den Haag and regularly performed with Big bands as a crooner and in parallel, as a singer-songwriter, in his Italian pop-swing project.
