Adelina
Fun Through Music: Violin and Music Theory Lessons
Hello, I'm Adelina! I'm Romanian and I've recently graduated my master’s in violin performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. Apart from playing music, one of my other passions is teaching. While having a degree in pedagogy, I've had several violin and music theory students so far. I’m experienced with teaching children/teenagers between the ages of 4 and 15. However, I’ve had adults in my class as well! As my profession requires, I’m calm, creative with musical games and have quite a lot of patience. I’m fluent in Romanian and English, however I’m able to have basic conversations in Russian as well and I’m in the process of learning Dutch. Don't hesitate to contact me and let's make learning fun! :)

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!

Nathalie
Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.

Mi sono diplomata presso Istituti di Musica in Polonia e Conservatori di Santa Cecilia a Roma e a quello di Palermo. Insegno il violino a bambini, ragazzi ed adulti di tutte le età da più di 20 anni. Il mio studio si trova in zona San Pietro (vicino alla stazione di treno San Pietro). Ricerche scientifiche affermano che chi suona il violino sviluppa entrambi gli emisferi cerebrali mentre normalmente se ne sviluppa in genere principalmente solo uno Inoltre suonare il Violino puo’ anche offrire varie possibilita’ nella vita: forse voi stessi o vostro figlio/a avete del vero talento e nessuno ancora lo sa. Chiamatemi anche solo per saperne di più e vi darò tutte le informazioni. Riassumendo questo che offro sono: LEZIONI DI VIOLINO PER BAMBINI, RAGAZZI ED ADULTI DI TUTTE LE ETA’ E DI TUTTI I LIVELLI (Le lezioni possono svolgersi in italiano, polacco, inglese o tedesco) Attraverso la pratica sullo strumento, supportata dall’uso di libri didattici e brani di repertorio, lo studente inizia il percorso con lo studio dell’arco, del suono, dell’uso delle dita, della lettura delle note sul pentagramma, della posizione della mano sulla tastiera, l'affinamento della lettura. Un approccio strutturato e aperto allo studio del violino, ti permetterà da subito di iniziare a suonare delle piacevoli melodie… Per gli studenti principianti offro il mio aiuto per l'acquisto dello strumento adatto e do tutti i consigli necessari su altre cose (spalliera, corde, pece, leggio, ecc.) da acquistare.

L’iscrizione ai corsi è aperta sia a singoli strumentisti che a gruppi musicali già formati, di diversi generi e stili musicali. I gruppi di musica da camera sono formati in base alle personali esperienze, interessi musicali e preparazione degli allievi, al fine di creare gruppi il più possibile omogenei.

Durante i laboratori affronteremo il repertorio che include il periodo tra il XVII e il XVIII secolo
