I was nominated (2015) by the International Rostrum of Composer - International Music Council

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!!

Brisa
Violin and Music Theory Lessons for Children and Adults
After studying two bachelor degrees in Composition and a professional degree in violin, I am currently a student in Master degree of composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Den Haag. Being involved in music education since I was 6 years old -and starting to study in a conservatory at age of 8- has given me the enough experience to understand the needs of a music apprentice. Music is a wonderfully pleasurable form of expression and should be enjoyed with fun and sensitivity. However, discipline (without pressure) can not be forgotten. In my lessons, I try to train the body and brain simultaneously to develop the student's adequate skills to play the instrument and learn musical language in an efficient and stimulating way.

Amalia
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.

Hello! My name is Celia. I'm from Spain and I live in Rotterdam since August 2018. I currently study my second year of a master programme in Music therapy at Codarts, Rotterdam. I obtained my bachelor diploma in Piano performance in 2016 (Zaragoza, Spain), and after two years of experience in a music academy as a piano, harmony and music teacher in Spain (2016-2018) I discovered in myself a real vocation of sharing and bringing piano music (and music in general) closer to all kind of people not only by teaching but also by the use of music therapy. I have experience with children, adults, and cases about different disabilities, as Asperger, autism or Down's syndrome. I use in my lessons methods from different pedagogies, combining them in a different way for every student according to their needs, and always with creativity and taking care about all aspects: sound, body posture, real understanding of the music... and the most important, the happiness of the student learning and having contact with the instrument and producing his/her own contribution to his/her development and enjoyment :)
