About Me

"My ideas for teaching saxophone is to make Music!
For having a good musical phrase you have to understand basically where each and every note is going.
Sometimes is good to forget in what instrument are we playing. To avoid some specific problems we should think about how would this music sounds with other instruments, for example with the strings or piano. For makeing this possible I do have some very good exercises!!!
Yes you have to practice!!! But if you love music and you love the saxophone, then you also love working to get better and better!!! :)
See you in my class!!!

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.

Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results.
