    Accordion lessons for all levels and Piano and Music Theory lessons for beginners

    My name is Helena Sousa and I am a professional musician. I have done my Bachelor and Master of Music in Spain and France, respectively, and now I work as a freelance musician in The Netherlands since December 2017.

    As a hard-working and active person, I am encouraged to show how music works and how it is essential in life, doing different activities with the student such as listening to music, doing body percussion with different rhythms, singing or playing instruments.
    All of these are important activities to develop the skills of the student such as coordination, attention or discipline, along with the most important thing: enjoying music as a fundamental part of life.

    I offer accordion lessons for students of all levels and piano and music theory lessons for beginners in Rotterdam or nearby.

    Thank you!

    Extra information

    - Accordion lessons - it would be essential to bring his/her own accordion (the student can buy or rent it, both options are available, I can help
    him/her with it)
    - Accordion, music theory or piano lessons - a music notebook would be important for the student
    - In case of lessons at the student's home, the price is the official price in "apprentus" + travel costs.

    As a hard-working and active person, I am encouraged to show how music works and how it is essential in life, doing different activities with the student such as listening to music, doing body percussion with different rhythms, singing or playing instruments.

    Classical Piano & Music Theory lessons for all levels
    The focus of this class is to learn how to play the piano but most important how to make music. Music is a language that expresses our feelings & ideas and connects us with other people but also with ourselves. Together we will can work on the basic principles and tools to play the piano, setting a healthy technique but also cultivate your personal sense of music. Further on, we can explore new repertoire and unknown composers, refine your playing and learn how to deal with difficulties, discuss about interpretation issues and even work on your performance on stage. With music theory, we can dive into the alphabet and syntactic of music: the world harmony, rhythm, solfege and analysis.

    Drum, percussion and music theory lessons in Rotterdam!
    ‘’Music has the power to inspire and connect people and give them a chance to express themselves.’’ I am a drummer, teacher, composer and arranger. In my home country and abroad I have been fortunate to work with some of the best musicians and bands: Croatian TV-Radio Jazz orchestra, HGM A Band, The Frajle, Davor Krizic Experiment and many others and to lead my own bands. My qualifications: -Primary and Secondary School for Popular and Jazz Music in Zagreb -University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria (Bachelor of Music) -currently doing my master studies in jazz drums at Codarts in Rotterdam. My goal as a teacher is to recognize and bring out the potential in each student and help them find their own way of expression. In the lessons we focus on: technique, sound, coordination, reading skills, interpretation, improvisation, grooves and independence. If you are wondering: yeah, that's cool but does she like pineapple on a pizza? Or: I wonder if she thinks that hot-dog is a sandwich? I hope to answer those questions and many more on our first lesson! P.S. Lessons are taught in English and Croatian.

    Celia
    Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offers music and piano lessons in Netherlands. Good quality :)
    Hello! My name is Celia. I'm from Spain and I've been living in Rotterdam since last August being part of a master programe in Art Therapies department in Codarts, Rotterdam. I have a bachelor diploma in Piano performance (Zaragoza, Spain), and after two years of experience in a music academy as a piano, harmony and music teacher in Spain, I've discovered in myself a real vocation of sharing and bringing piano music (and music in general) closer to all kind of people not only by teaching, but also by the use of music therapy. I have experience with children, adults, and cases about different disabilities, as Asperger, autism or Down's syndrome. I use in my lessons methods from different pedagogies, combining them in a different way for every student according to their necessities, and always with creativity and taking care about all aspects: sound, body posture, real understanding of the music... and the most important, the happiness of the student learning and having contact with the instrument and producing his/her own contribution to his/her development and enjoyment :)

    Piano ( jazz conservatory exam tutoring), Music Composition and Graphic Scores.
    I am a master graduated jazz pianist and a master architect. I have a design approach to improvisation, composition and piano technique. As reading music is one of the biggest challenges for beginners of any instrument, I use graphic notation as an easy and fun tool for teaching and composing. I approach music as a form of language and I will do my best to teach you how to hear and understand it, step by step.

    Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
    Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. Having graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music and Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude), I am currently pursuing my postgraduate study in singing at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, under the tutelage of Valerie Guillorit. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have performed as soloist at a lot of occasions in Hong Kong and Europe, and the repertoire includes opera, Lied, oratorio and new music. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions in their ABRSM exams and some of them had won prizes in competitions. However, I do not teach them for distinctions and prizes. No matter what they get on their music journey, I love them with all my heart and I always believe that encouragement is the key. For beginners, I focus a lot on basic techniques. During the lessons, I also like to share my knowledge about history and theory, which are important building blocks to shaping a musician. For advanced learners, I would teach more about musicality and music presentation along with basic techniques. Of course, the actual teaching method depends on the personality and ability of student too. I grow up in a top English school in Hong Kong, so I can communicate in English fluently. I am confident that I will give my students the best learning experience. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a trial lesson:)
