Reviews (2)

My first experience was great, the teacher was kind, responded quickly, and willing to adjust to my learning needs.
I had a great experience with these good lessons! The style of Nicolas' teaching is suitable for every horn player beginner or advanced. It is flexible and even online teaching works well. Nicolas takes the time to explain difficult musical passages and encourages you to perform at your very best. Not only are the lessons very thorough, they also include a good dosis of fun! I felt I learned so much during the lessons and would really recommend taking horn (or natural horn) lessons with Nicolas.
Bonjour! I am a french student from Avignon. Have you ever wanted to learn French? Or do you wish to perfect your skills, to practice your conversation? Do you need school support? I offer you private lessons in The Hague! For all ages and levels, all objectives, I will adapt my methods to your needs to give you a nice french experience! The first meeting usually is an assessment of the student's initial abilities, so that we can decide together of the needs and methods required. My lessons are based on personalized and playful exercises; they address listening, writing, reading, speaking, vocabulary and grammar. French is such a beautiful and fun language! You will love it.

SINGING (POP, JAZZ, OPERA) - sls method - cvt method
DEVELOPING POTENTIAL AND PERSONALITY During the years Roberto has learned modern techniques such as the Slech (Speech Level Singing), VoiceCraft and CvT (Complete Vocal Technique). 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. He has an album published in 2018 “Senza Troppo Rumore” and a long experience as a teacher of singing (opera, jazz, pop), solfeggio, harmony, ear training, music theory and guitar. Google him to check more about his work, style and the long artistic collaborations he had.

Guitar and Music Theory Lessons by a Qualified and Experienced Teacher
I specialize in teaching about Music and how to play the Guitar. In class, I always make the effort of understanding what are the goals and interests of all students, as well as their own skills. This way we can address the issues at hand more effectively and make sure the student never loses his/her interest and focus in music and his/her instrument. I believe that an honest and friendly relationship between teacher and student is essential for this exchange of ideas to happen more clearly and fluently, and so I do my best to make everyone feel comfortable enough to share their own thoughts freely. I offer good and personalized classes. This means that there will special care with your interest in music and guitar, all basic skills will be worked upon and strengthened, all specific requests and ideas will be addressed, both improvisation and interpretation can be developed and exploring potential, achieving goals and having fun are main priorities. Come and enjoy learning more about Music and Guitar!!

Classical Guitar Lessons for beginners and intermediate players
I've been teaching for more than six years now and I managed to come up with an easy and approachable method for anyone who wants to learn the ways of this beautiful instrument. I started playing the guitar at the age of twelve years old, thru high school and that eventually led me to the National Conservatory of Bucharest, Romania, where I refined my playing and begun teaching. I am gonna encourage you every step of the way with much needed advice on the right technique, score reading, so that you quickly gain confidence in your playing. I put a high importance on technique and theory because these two aspect, as well as your daily practice, are what will make you have fast progress and thus loads of fun along the way.

Music: piano, harpsichord, composition, harmony, theory, philosophy, history... anything
Music is one of the finest and greatest arts in history. Encompasses the challenge of corporal control and exercise, rational thinking, and creativity amongst many other skills (and mental/sensitive pleasures). You can learn in the field of composition, music theory, music history, aesthetics and philosophy of music as well playing piano and harpsichord, either the historical repertoire of both instruments or improvising skills (free or based on a style) and old skills like "basso continuo" or "practical counterpoint". If you want to prepare an audition, exam, concert; you need extra-school lessons or you want to learn just for pleasure you may contact me.

Piano Lessons with two Grand Pianos. Preparations for ABRSM and Competition.
There are two grand pianos at the location. There will be enough distance between the student and the teacher. For children it is important to develop basic musical skill through Singing, Rythmique and Ear training besides the piano playing. I use one technical exercise book, a main text book and a theory book. Through these 3 books students learn different aspects of music and they naturally get ready for exams and grade. After acquiring basic skills, students study Harmony and Chord exercise too. These are useful for playing pops and jazz, and they obtain deeper understanding of classical pieces too. Private Piano lesson, from age 4 above. Children can start the lesson after being able to read the number from 1 to 5 and alphabet from A to G. Advanced students who wants to prepare for competitions, auditions, ABRSM, GCSE, IB exams or the entrance exam of conservatory. Concert is held annually together with students of flute, violin and composition teachers. For the age 1-7 years, I have group Rhythmique lessons.
