    Trumpet lessons / flugelhorn lessons for beginners and advanced musicians
    Would you like to learn the trumpet or flugelhorn? Or are you looking for a new teacher to get a different input? Do you have problems or questions about playing the trumpet or flugelhorn? I'm studying instrumental pedagogy at the UdK with a major in trumpet. I have been playing the trumpet and flugelhorn in all styles (baroque, classical, romantic, modern, jazz, brass, funk, ska, pop, brass band, etc.) for 15 years in changing ensembles, for which I also often arrange pieces. Since 2017 I have been giving trumpet and flugelhorn lessons for people at different levels. From bloody beginners to passionate amateur musicians, everything is included.

    Professional piano and Music lessons to all levels and ages!
    Piano is an incredible instrument to learn - it provides you with a broad understanding of music, develops listening skills, great dexterity, increases concentration and much more. I specialize in jazz piano, but teach all musical styles according to the student's needs and wishes. Throughout the lesson we will learn music and songs, technique, harmony, ear training, theory and rhythm - all subjects of music can be addressed through the piano!

    Piano Lessons in Berlin, Mitte with a Professional Musician
    Hi everyone! I have studied piano for about 15 years and have gained a big repertoire. I'd like to share some of my experience with you on here, it can be online or live. I much prefer live lessons, but its not a problem, for me to teach online. My approach is based on a motion and sound connection, where I analyze from the sound, what can be technically improved to reach a better sound, A harsh sound is an indicator for a too strong touch for example. As important the physical part is, I build it from the musical part, and bringing out the character of a piece is the center of any lesson. I'm a classical pianist focusing on repertoire like Debussy, Brahms, Schumann, Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Beethoven, though a lot of my students are beside piano beginners professionals in a related field, such as music producers, composers, contemporary artists, etc. Im happy to work profound and professional, though this can happen on any level. Depending on your goals, we create a schedule for you to reach it. It is not essential for me on which level you are right now, you can either play for the first time or further advance your piano techniques. I also recommend to study harmony and music theory, since this is the core of any (tonal) piece. If you want to understand how music works and how you bring it to the piano, you can hit me up!

    Drumming and how to make your drums fit a composition
    Drums, as with bass guitar are the backbone of any good song, and the foundation upon which the music is built. Despite not being as famous as lead vocals or lead guitar. Drums in my opinion is much more fun, at all levels of performance. I will teach you how to play the drums, how to fit the style to the genre and we will learn by practice by breaking down the famous classics, and explain what part drums played to make these classics so good. We will use my electronic drumset, which is not as good as the real thing but is definitely good for starters. There are ways you can practice at home without a drumset as well. And we can expand later and rent a studio room, where I can jam with you on the guitar even!

    Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
    I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own musical knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

I offer guitar lessons online and face to face, with a special focus on Samba, Chôro, Bossa Nova, the traditional Brazilian MPB and variant genres. Classes are aimed at people of all age groups without the need for prior knowledge. Will be approached in class the language of the genres with their rhythmic and historical specificities, studies of technique and musical theory.

    Aurel
    Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
    Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). Recently, the band was part of Keep An Eye The Records's finalists (March 2022). Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!

    Guitar and Music lessons from a CvA graduated teacher in Amsterdam
    Learning to play the guitar can be an amazing experience at every stage of the process! My ultimate goal is to help my students to develop their skills and musical understanding by learning and playing music that they like. Therefore I adapt my teaching methodologies to the taste and needs of every student. Throughout every lesson, we will work on three main courses of development: technical aspects, theoretical knowledge, and performative practice. My classes are open for anyone who would like to enjoy exploring the universe of music: beginners and advanced, children and adults, you are all welcome to book the first lesson.

    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!

    Piano Lessons, Music Theory and ABRSM Exam preparation
    I graduated from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with distinction of my Master degree. I am a highly experienced and creative tutor who enjoys teaching all levels. I design lesson-plans depending on different levels, interests, and abilities in tailoring each lesson to my student's individual needs. More than 10 years teaching experiences, used to be Piano/ Music Theory/ Aural-training/ Sight-reading teacher at Music school in London. I have also prepared students for IGCSE and ABRSM examinations. Whether you wish to take graded examinations or just play for fun, please feel free to get in touch! :-)

    Giorgia
    Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
    I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

    Sergio
    Higher Graduate (with masters) in Cello and Conducting teaches music at all levels
    My teaching method is scrupulously adapted to each student I have, regardless of the subject to work on (musical language, cello, music history, analysis, conducting, etc.) I always apply the Belgian teaching model, where I trained with my master's degrees in Conducting (Antwerp) and Historical Cello (Brussels). According to this model, the main thing is a living and practical teaching, taking understanding and not memory as the main learning engine.
