About Me

I am an energetic and positive person who loves making music. My passion is to be on stage playing and sharing music with others. I also enjoy teaching because I love the unique connection music does with human beings; it takes out the best of ourselves and in our hearts!!

I specialized in two instruments: saxophone and viola ( I can teach violin as well). I have 20+ years of teaching experience, I work with adults and children of all ages, from beginners to advanced levels. My extensive teaching experience and performing expertise have given me a vast range of methodologies ideal for adapting my teaching to the needs and pace of individual students. I am familiar with Trinity and ABRSM syllabus since 2011.

I also took additional courses in Basics on arrangements and composition (software MuseScore and Sibelius), Emotional Intelligence in Education and Stress, Management in Education, and Mindfulness. In the lessons, I incorporate the Alexander and Feldenkrais Techniques principles.

Mijn eerste vioolles bij Estela was erg fijn, ze is geduldig, lief en legt goed uit. Als ik weer een les ga volgen dan ga ik zeker weer bij haar boeken.
Een hele leuke les gevolgd bij Estela. We waren met zijn tweeën. Viool en saxofoonles. Estela was professioneel en lette op kleine details. Ze had geduld en was vriendelijk. We hebben nu al zin in de komende lessen.
Estela is zeer aardig en kundig. In mijn eerste altvioolles sinds jaren had ze veel aandacht voor de juiste houding van het lichaam (schouders, armen) en van de hand en vingers, wat ik erg fijn vond, omdat er dan minder kans is op blessures op de langere duur. Ze is vrolijk, geduldig en vriendelijk en ik ga zeker nog meer lessen volgen.
Estella is a very positive, always happy teacher. Even though my son has been having on-line lessons with her, we can always feel her positive attitude during the lessons. She is very patient, gives lots of important tips and feedback, which has been helping him to guide his learning, improving in every aspect of it. We can see how much she care about the whole learning experience. It’s been very useful to expend his time while at home doing the lessons. He has been practicing more and has been feeling more motivated since he started the lessons with her. We definitely recommend her as a Saxophone teacher!

Send a message explaining your needs and Estela will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

Anna
Violin and theory lessons for beginners and intermidate in any age
Would you like to learn some music? I’m a Master student at Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Hague. I come from Poland and I have been playing violin since 16 years. I have some experience with teaching both kids and adults. Music is my passion and I would like to share it with the others.

Alethea
Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Sacha
Violin lessons for children (3-12), teenagers (12-18) and adults (18-70)
I am Sacha, a violinist with a strong passion for teaching. I was under the tutelage of the great violin pedagogue Mr. Mauricio Fuks in Indiana University (USA) for 3 consecutive years (2018-2021) becoming his teaching assistant for 2 years (2019-2021). Moreover, I have taught young violinists in Elementary Schools, (e.g. Fairview Elementary School) and also collegiate students in the Jacobs School of Music. In Spain, I have teaching experience in several music schools instructing violinists ranging from 3 to 70 years of age. I have also worked with ADHD and autistic students with a great passion for violin playing and music-making. Now, I am pursuing a master's in Violin Performance at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag. I have an excellent command of English, good working knowledge of French and basic German. Furthermore, I am currently learning Dutch.

Manuel
Violin Lessons: violin lessons for students of all ages
My violin classes are open for people of all ages and levels. You may have used to play the violin many years ago and are trying to get back at it but don't know how, you may have just started and you're looking for a teacher that can guide your first steps, you may be looking for a regular coaching for an already developed sense of musicality — my classes accommodate all of the above and more. Most of my pupils are already intermediate students that are dedicated into becoming the young violinists of the future, but that doesn't mean my class isn't for you if you are simply looking for a hobby! Music is about having fun together! I can teach in English (fluent), Portuguese (fluent), Spanish (fluent) or French (basic).

Ruiqi
Modern violin, Baroque violin and viola. Collaboration skills
I'm a violinist graduated from The Juilliard School. I teach both modern and baroque violin from beginner to advanced level. As a musician, I perform constantly in Europe, American, and Asia. I would love to provide the opportunity for my students to come to concerts as much as they can, and to learn music through playing, collaborating with others and to have fun. I also teach music theory for beginners, as well as providing exercise on ear training( Aural skills)

Bernardo
Classical Violin Lessons (English) for begginers and intermediates from 7 years old
If you want to start playing the violin or if you need extra support, you came to the right place! Beginners: - I'll teach you how to hold the violin and bow and how to produce a clean sound; - I'll help you playing your first melodies and exercises; - I can also help you with the basics of music theory, since it's fundamental to read music Intermediate: - I'll give you new repertoire or help you with the repertoire you're working on; - I'll help you with technique and sound; - If needed, I can also help you with some music theory.

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.

Mario
Violin for everyone! Repertoire provided. ABRSM/Trinity possible
Hello! :) I'm a professional teacher/violinist with a “Master in education” from the Royal Conservatory. I teach either live or online from my studio located in the city center. I can also come at your place if you wish (I can reach different cities as I drive). Music making is guaranteed even through distance learning: you'll be provided with accompaniments and recorded music to support your learning process, giving so the opportunity of experiencing music making at its finest as you'll play often in a duo (violin and piano). You'll spare some money too as I will provide all the needed books and repertoire. You can play from your screen or even print at home the necessary sheets for the lesson rather than buying unnecessary extras. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

Emese
Violin (Viool) and music lessons on every level for every age
As a graduate violin teacher I offer music lessons. I'm 26 years old, and have BA and MA degrees in performing, MA degree in music education and I'm currently studying Historical Performance in the Royal Conservatory. I have experience in teaching different levels and age groups, from beginner children and grown-ups to advanced youngsters, age 5-55. It's a nice thing to help people get closer to an instrument and music, and be part of others' achievements! For children it's very useful to learn music because of its transfer-effects, and for adults it's also a good way of recreation, quit from the workdays and so on. Please write me with confidence, if You have interest! Detailed CV and references are available!

Jasper
Viola, Violin, Music History and Theory Lessons in The Hague
I have been a performing Violist since 2000 and a dedicated teacher since 2010. I am currently studying Early Music at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and have recently graduated from The Juilliard School, where I was the proud recipient of a Kovner Fellowship. I have taught students from 12-63 in Texas, New York, Brazil, and Hungary. I believe that learning an instrument is a vehicle by which one may learn anything and that music is fundamental to our humanity. I believe one is never too young, or old, to learn, and I am committed to sharing music.
