My name is Dean and I am an experienced music tutor based in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
I have many years of experience working as a music teacher in the UK where I worked with children and adults. Both those who wish to have music as a hobby and those preparing for exams, auditions, and performances.
During my bachelor studies in music at the University of Manchester, I conducted research into the relationship between music performance anxiety and pedagogy and this research has enabled me to create a safe learning environment for my students.

Florence
Piano and Singing Lessons/ Master's Degree holder/ 15 years of teaching experience
Music classes are tailor-made based on student's requirements and goals. Florence has 15 years of music teaching experience. She has taught music in international schools, pre-schools, private music schools and privately. She also performs internationally as an opera singer. She has created unique teaching syllables for students of different age groups as well as for students of different goals from her many years of experience. Florence connects with children easily; children usually feel at ease to play for her. She thinks it is important that there is a connection between the teacher and the student especially in learning music. Great musicians play from their heart and this made them vulnerable, therefore choosing a right teacher is crucial for their music development.
