Piano lessons for beginner and advanced students (in Dutch / English)!

Learn how to play your favorite music on the piano.
I can teach you to do that by ear or visually (by using tutorials or sheet music).

For me, it is most important that you enjoy what you do. That starts with playing the music you love. The goal of the lessons is to guide you through what you wish to learn and achieve. We will do that step by step in a relaxed tempo. I am looking for enthusiastic students that like to learn new skills and who are curious about how they can develop their piano playing and other related parts of their musical knowledge and skills.

Additionally, I can teach you the following:

Musical hearing training
Improvising
Working with a DAW (Logic)
(Home) Studio recordings
Music production (editing, mixing, mastering)
Music theory
(digital) music notation
Composition and songwriting

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My musical background is very versatile. Piano is my main instrument and I also have a lot of experience with synthesizers and keyboards. In 2016 I graduated as a composer at the HKU in Hilversum. During my studies I came into contact with West African music and in the following years I specialized in djembe and doundoun drums.

I am also a singer, songwriter and have experience as a conductor and composer/arranger. I am also regularly involved in music production and studio recordings.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
As a teacher I give private piano lessons and West African drum lessons (djembe and doundoun). I have taken on the position of conductor, singing coach and rehearsal teacher for various choirs. I was bandleader and bandcoach in several bands I played in. In the field of percussion I regularly give drum circles and workshops.

In terms of musical performances, I have shown myself in many forms. With piano and other keys I have performed as a solo musician and as part of various ensembles such as duos, choirs, bands and orchestras. I also have experience in guiding various dance lessons and workshops. In percussion I mainly play African drums and handpan. With African drums I perform in small and large djembe ensembles and I accompany African dance lessons. I use the handpan in solo performances or duos.

In the field of compositions and arrangements I have written works for films, documentaries, dance performances, commercials, choirs, bands and various ensembles.

There are a number of musical elements that I feel extra passionate about as a musician and teacher. These are improvisation, rhythm and pulse, composition, presentation and how to practice in a relaxed and effective way.

Illia
Classical, jazz and pop piano lessons, music theory and solfège in Amsterdam
I have been playing the piano since I was five. I graduated from a specialized music school in Kiev and now I am a student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I teach classical, jazz and pop music. I have a very positive approach in teaching and will try to generate a motivating environment, as I understand that learning piano can be frustrating for some! My goal is to help you enjoy piano as well as seeing steady progress.

Play only what you like! - Piano lessons for all levels and all styles
Music is Play! and everyone is it's own game. Read, understand and make only the music you like. I think if it isn't fun, it can't be music:) I studied a classical piano bachelor, and later a jazz master and a live electronics master. In the meantime, I have been teaching music. It's longer than 9 years now! Most of my students learn piano. With the starter ones, I use my own system to equally help them grow all the needed skills: body consciousness (to avoid lesions or bad habits), music theory (including writing and reading) and improvisation. Usually most songs are made of melody, chords and rhythm. From there, I can help you understand how a song works, how is it written, how does it translate to the piano... and voilá! You'll know the song by heart, and will be able to play it a bit different every time, because you won't be following a set of pre-imposed instructions. You will understand how a small system (a song) works. This way of learning can be applied to any song, from any century or style. Understanding is key! Play Chopin, write rock songs, play Monk, Bill Evans, the Beatles, make a lo-fi beat, play Beethoven, play the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Star Wars, play video game music, play salsa! bachata and make people dance, laugh or cry. Music is very powerful! PD: I have also experience imparting electronic music lessons in Ableton Live and Max MSP, which is now a very important part of my professional practice. In case you are interested, it is also possible to mix the two worlds and create a any kind of path between piano, synths, beats and home studio techniques. Ask me anything, I'll tell you how I could help!

Piano lessons for children and adults, exams preparation. Classical and Pop music
Whether piano, songwriting/composition, music theory I bring all that I have learned and developed as a musician to the lesson in the interest of the student’s growth. Whether we work in classical or pop, We focus on what will directly fit your individual goals. We can cover the full spectrum of technique, theory, ear training, sight-reading, and performance. What emerges over time is tailor-made program suited to your needs and goals.

Iryna
Pop or classical piano lessons for all ages and levels
Playing the piano is a great hobby and opportunity to relax after a hard day, as well as a good skill to impress your friends. I can help you with learning how to read notes, play by ears, analyze classical pieces, make covers of popular songs, improvise, accompany yourself while singing, etc

Seen Tung
Piano/Music theory/Composition & Arranging lessons tailored to your needs and wishes
Hello, this is Seen! I am a pianist, composer and arranger from Hong Kong, currently studying at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I am offering piano and music theory lessons tailored to your needs and wishes. Perhaps you are an enthusiastic adult beginner, or you want to pick it up again after not touching the instrument for some time? Or perhaps you are looking for a teacher for your child? I have been giving music lessons for the past 9 years to students at different levels aging from 5 to 60. I understand that we all approach music in various ways and everyone needs different styles of guidance. I am looking forward to getting to know you and experiment with how I can help you along the way. Perhaps you want to play pieces from the classical repertoire? Or perhaps you want to acquire the skill of learning your favourite pop songs by ear, or learn to read lead sheets and chord symbols? Perhaps you want to learn to accompany yourself singing? Perhaps you want to learn improvisation over chord progressions? As a musician grew up with classical music training and later moved on to explore jazz and pop, I enjoy helping you to deepen your understanding about different styles and to have fun with playing! Perhaps you’ve always wanted to improve your piano technique, but get turned off by studies and scale practice? Perhaps you wish to acquire a stronger sense of rhythm or a more sophisticated control of sound? In my experience, advanced technique comes along with a tension-free body and mental space, and we can work on that together. I also find creating unique musical exercises that adapts to students’ needs makes the learning process more enjoyable. Perhaps you would love to integrate music into your daily life, but find it challenging to keep the momentum and interest in a long term? I try to structure our lessons so that students can see steady progress. I also understand that incorporating a habit can be a tricky part, so we can also develop study and practice plans together and explore ways to make your practice time more efficient. Perhaps you not only want to learn the instrument, but are also interested about the theories behind the music? Perhaps you want to learn some basic arranging skills and write for an ensemble that you play with? Perhaps you want to try composing your own music? As a composer and arranger, I would also love to share my experience on these subjects with you. Music is an enormous universe and there are always new territories to explore. I’m still a student on this journey, and I’m more than excited to share my experience and accompany you on your way!

Javier
Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Music Theory and Composition lessons (Amsterdam / Online)
I am studying Bachelor Pop Guitar at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I can help you in different matters, such as performance, ear training or music theory. All the aspects will be link together in order to learn effectively! In my guitar lessons, we will develop your skills in the instrument to get a better and more personal tone, and feel more confident when improvising or playing in different styles. We will get there by learning songs, scales, chords, different techniques and putting all of them together. I can also help you in songwriting, which I personally think that is a beautiful way to learn and apply the things we learn. I can teach online or in student's location in Amsterdam or in Almere. Don't hesitate to get in touch if there is any questions :)

Saba
Jazz Piano, Improvisation, Comping, Harmony, Rhythm
I am a graduating student at Conservatorium van Amsterdam studying jazz piano under the supervision of the masters in the school. I have experience in teaching beginners how to start improvising. You can trust me, I will push you and make you learn it. Improvisation can be learned if the right tools are offered to the beginner. I know what methodology works for upbringing a beginner to start improvising, swinging, composing a tune. I can guide through all the scales that jazz musicians use, common chord harmonies used by Bud Powell, Mccoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock - and most importantly ideas behind it; or you might think you know scales and can't use them in creative way, I will teach you how to make it a logical language. Swing is the most important element in improvising in a jazz context, and I will guide you on how to practice getting the swing feel, that drives jazz music. Generally, I give lots of assignments, papers, so it would be nice the student knows how to read sheet music. If you are a beginner or intermediate who needs a push to get to know common, complex improvisational, compositional, harmonical ideas, contact me. If you are an intermediate/advanced level, our lessons might be even more adventurous, pushy. I will share everything I know. Looking forward to meeting you :)) feel free to contact me for inquiries.

My name is Mathilde, I am a French violinist, pianist, harpsichordist, producer and composer. I have graduated from the world's great institutions such as the Royal College of Music London, Manhattan School of Music New-York, Brussels Royal Conservatory, and Paris-Sorbonne University (in musicology). I have been performing concerts around the world in the most prestigious concert halls including the Châtelet Theater and Seine Musicale (Paris), the National Opera House (Oman) and La Scala (Milan), as well as many other venues in Europe, US, China, Middle East. During this period of time, I had been playing in the Orchestra Academy of La Scala in Milan for 2 years, and I am currently playing at the Metropole Orkest in Amsterdam. With the experiences I gained over the years - including the teaching experience in the Conservatory of Cambrai (France) - I became an expert in teaching violin and keyboards as well as music theory, including writing and reading scores. I have been teaching to the different age groups and different levels of technical backgrounds (beginner or advanced). I can easily adapt myself to the level of each student to create a synchronicity and help them pursue their goals and wishes. I am there to help them as a teacher and a music coach for their musical career. I can combine different practices and teach basic techniques in repertoire that matches the personality of the student (from classical to contemporary, pop, rock and more). Based on the teaching experiences I have, I can consider myself as a teacher with patience, motivating style and an open mind. Happy to provide references from my previous students from Amsterdam / Paris / Milan if requested. Next to my technical teaching skills, I am also actively involving in various musical projects. I have recently performed for major TV shows in Paris: Le Grand Échiquier (France 2), Variations (France Télévisions, Culturbox), and I am currently making my first classical / electronic album in Amsterdam.

Barney
Composition for Beginners & More Experienced Composers, Harmony, Counterpoint, Orchestration
Barney's Teaching Manifesto: Dear Composer, The only true teacher is hearing your works rehearsed and performed. This is the most important element to realizing your destiny, but if you have come here, you probably do not yet believe it. Teachers will keep you trapped in the belief that you do not have what you already need. But everything you need you can get on your own. I cannot teach you anything, or rather, I can teach you everything but composition itself: You are the final expert on your own works. A teacher is a shortcut. And when we take shortcuts, we must always go back. But this is not a bad thing. Going back is a way to go forwards. If you have tried to advance through the no-teacher method and you feel that you cannot wait any longer, then perhaps it is time to try the teacher method. You are the king, queen, or ruler, shall we say. I am just your advisor, should you so choose. I can tell you what I think, I can warn you of pitfalls, and I can even stop you for a moment in time. But it is you, dear composer, that must choose. I cannot teach you to be what you already are: The Composer. Sometimes my advice may be of help. And other times it won’t be. And then one day you must rule your kingdom on your own. Let’s hope that that day arrives very soon. I seek students who are hardworkers, strong-willed, or a combination of the both. Composition requires an obscene amount of work and determination. We live in a world that seeks our silence and complaisance. The act of completing a piece is itself a declaration of war, because the amount of effort and energy required to bring this child into existence is unfathomable to the general public. With Eternal Love from my Compositional Pen, Classes for Beginners 1)Composition (60 mins) 2)Introduction to Composition (60 mins) 3) Introduction to Composition & Harmony (90 mins) Prerequisites: 0-3 years of composition experince 3 years of instrumental study Classes for Composers with Experience 1) Composition (60 mins) 2) Composition & Harmony (90 mins) 3) Composition & Counterpoint (90 mins) 4) Composition & Orhcestration (90 mins) Prerequisites: 3+ years of composition study with a teacher OR 5+ years of self study in composition If you feel that I can be of assistance for a short time on your compositional journey, then you may contact me to arrange a trial lesson. If we deem that it is a mutual fit, then we can work together for a period of time. Have a great day,
