Myrto
Classical Piano & Music Theory lessons for all levels
The focus of this class is to learn how to play the piano but most important how to make music. Music is a language that expresses our feelings & ideas and connects us with other people but also with ourselves. Together we will can work on the basic principles and tools to play the piano, setting a healthy technique but also cultivate your personal sense of music. Further on, we can explore new repertoire and unknown composers, refine your playing and learn how to deal with difficulties, discuss about interpretation issues and even work on your performance on stage. With music theory, we can dive into the alphabet and syntactic of music: the world harmony, rhythm, solfege and analysis.

Learn piano and start a beautiful musical journey!
I am studying Bachelor as violinist in Codarts Univerisity of Arts.But I've been playing piano since I am 3 years old and I finished my middle professional musical education of both instruments in Spain, where I also played in some youth orchestras. (That means that I have been playing piano for 18 years) I teach on all levels: kids who want to start playing and adults who want to improve their musical skills (or adults who are just about to start this musical journey!). In my lessons (that can be taught in english, spanish or russian) apart from improving your technical and musical skills, you will also learn some theorical aspects of music. I always do my best to make you a better musician. IMPORTANT: I do not teach at home, I prefer to move to the student's place.

Classical Singing lessons for all levels and ages; Piano lessons for beginners
Interested in classical singing / choral singing or playing the piano? Let's start the exploration of your ability with me! I am Soprano who studied my Master of Music in Codarts University for the Arts in Rotterdam, and before that I studied Bachelor of Music in Chinese University in Hong Kong. I have been teaching singing and piano for 6 years in Hong Kong and The Netherlands, for little children (starting 4 years old) to adults. I speak fluent English, Madarin and Cantonese. If you are interested in either singing or piano, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lise
Piano lessons for children/adults, beginner/intermediate
Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.

Celia
Professional pianist, Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offer music and piano lessons in the Netherlands. Good quality :)
Piano performance & Music therapy Hello! My name is Celia. I’m from Spain and I’m currently studying Music Therapy at the Rotterdam conservatory. I recently become a Music Therapy intern at Florence, The Hague. I obtained my bachelor diploma in piano performance in 2016. I have performed concerts as a soloist, in duet with other pianists and in bigger ensembles/orchestras. Since I moved to the Netherlands, I’m also part of a music trio where we perform pop, jazz, arrangements and compositions from our singer. All these experiences together give me for sure a big capacity of working repertoire and understand the different needs of my students as a teacher! 🙂 As I’m in education as a therapist, I also use all my knowledge in combination with Music Therapy skills with all my students and especially with people who demand a different experience during a music lesson. Music Therapy techniques allow you to play music without any knowledge of theory, so it’s very useful when in the middle of the lesson you need a break or when you just need to connect with yourself, for example. Music Therapy triggers your curiosity 😉 Learn & explore During more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I have worked all kind of people: children, adults, people with disabilities, families… I’m quite flexible and able to adapt my way of teaching to the circumstances! I like to work individually and in groups. Each way has its own advantages! In my lessons I use all methods I could experiment myself among my piano career; I’m also always open for new knowledge, repertoire and ways of working what my students may propose me. It’s fascinating how I never stop learning new repertoire and music styles thanks to my students! I try to offer music in a different way for every student according to their needs, with creativity and a relaxed ambience where the student can learn and explore. Each person has his/her own rhythm… which in my opinion is very important to respect. I also work with music theory, explaining concepts to my students from the pieces we play. I find this way is effective, instructive and much more motivating 🙂 In my lessons, we can work on classical, jazz, pop, arrangements, 4-hands piano music, improvisation and much more! Happiness Music needs a bit of commitment. It’s like a plant: a bit of water every day is much better than a lot of water just one day per week! However, every plant is different, and in the end, the important thing is that you feel happy and motivated during your learning process. This is also important for me, so for sure I always try my best to help my students in that aspect. The enjoyment of music (and everything) makes you learn much faster, don’t you think? Feel free to ask any kind of question! :)

Murat Ali
Piano ( jazz conservatory exam tutoring), Music Composition and Graphic Scores.
I am a master graduated jazz pianist and a master architect. I have a design approach to improvisation, composition and piano technique. As reading music is one of the biggest challenges for beginners of any instrument, I use graphic notation as an easy and fun tool for teaching and composing. I approach music as a form of language and I will do my best to teach you how to hear and understand it, step by step.

Francine
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.

Mario
Violin for everyone! Books provided. ABRSM/Trinity possible
:) Hello! I've studied at the Royal Conservatoire where I followed the “Master in education”. I teach at a studio in the city center or at your place if you wish. I can also do online lessons if you like the idea. I have a small keyboard connected to my laptop and music making is guaranteed even online! You'll spare some money too as I will provide lesson-by-lesson 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! :)
