About Me

I collect my experience as a pedagogue since 8 years. I quickly noticed that each pupil has his own expectation and difficulties. I learned from it to analyse and find suitable systems, methods and practicable exercises for everybody of any level.

I have been teaching from the naive 5 years-old kid to the mature 65 years-old lady. But also the wild 13 years-old teenager who doesn’t care about practicing, the curious 20 years-old student who has to learn for his exams and the busy 40 years-old dad who works a lot during the week and enjoys the weekend with his family.

It is important to understand what each of them want, understand their goals in order to elaborate strategies. Some of them would play songs from books, some would learn from hearing and watching. Others would want to play Chords, to accompany their singing, to improvise their own music.

But still, there are two main ideas i always keep in mind:
“To free from notes” has always been one of my most important task. Playing and enjoying music really starts when you don’t look at notes anymore, that’s why I motivate each pupil to play by heart and to take initiative in order to develop their creativity. Important is not how complicate and difficult they play but how easy and free they can express themselves.

When it is about freedom and improvisation, many pupils have tendency to bind it with Jazz even though this music is complicate or not always interesting for beginners. This is my second important point, to find the suitable music genre for any pupil depending on his taste and level. Pop is most of the time a great solution in order to learn the Harmony basics and to play we’ll known melodies.

I am an open mind person, patient and sympathetic. I enjoy to meet new people, to share my musical knowledge but also to learn more, better and deeper.
I believe not everybody can become a World Star, but everybody can learn how to enjoy making music. And that is the most important.

Through the years, i have been playing and recording with several bands from all kind of music genre: Pop, Rocknroll, Soul, Gospel, Reggae, Hiphop, RnB etc... playing Jazz and lounge music in severals hotels (solo, duo, trio).
Dance music for weddings, birthdays or disco parties (House, pop, Techno but also 80 ́s, 90 ́s hits...) leading and arranging medleys and mashups for a 7-man band, using synths, loops etc...

As an Arranger/producer, i have arranged for Bigbands, small strings and horns formations, produced an Neo soul-Jazz Ep for a singer, produced songs for different singers from Pop, Hiphop, Neosoul, House.

From Jazz to Classical: Saxophone and Piano lessons in Amsterdam
Jazz Lessons in Amsterdam. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you love music and you feel the inner urge of learning it, I can help you out. I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical. After years of studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing and singing. Music is like language,so I start by teaching how to connect the voice with the instrument. In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I've been learning music since I was 3 years old and recently I've graduated with a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously, I've studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), Kunst Uni Graz (Graz), Temple University (Philadelphia). I'm a professional performer since 5 years ago and I've performed in several countries around the world.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.
