    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.

    About Me

    Hello!

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

    As a professional and a freelance musician, I am looking for different music projects all the time and I perform as a soloist or with ensembles. I think this experience as a performer helps me each day to improve as a musician and as a teacher, since I am always looking for the best result in each concert, with a new repertoire or a new situation.

    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!

    SINGING (POP, JAZZ, OPERA), HARMONY, EAR TRAINING, SOLFEGE',
    DEVELOPING POTENTIAL AND PERSONALITY During the years Roberto has learned modern techniques such as the Slech (Speech Level Singing), VoiceCraft and CvT (Complete Vocal Technique). Roberto: “I strongly believe that a good teacher is the one who can bring out and develop the potential and personality of the student without locking him in books, notions and unnecessary mental cages, traps in which it is very easy to fall”. Graduated in classical music as bass-baritone, he worked for 10 years as a soloist and chorister in many productions and with internationally renowned conductors. He attended the last year in vocal jazz at the Royal Conservatoire of Den Haag and regularly performed with Big bands as a crooner and in parallel, as a singer-songwriter, in his Italian pop-swing project. He has an album published in 2018 “Senza Troppo Rumore” and a long experience as a teacher of singing (opera, jazz, pop), solfeggio, harmony, ear training, music theory and guitar. Google him to check more about his work, style and the long artistic collaborations he had.

    Learn Piano the way it pleases you! I'm a pianist with 22 years of experience in Classical Music. I took three semesters of a Bachelor in Piano course at UECE - University of the State of Ceará, in Brazil. Since then, I have been giving private piano lessons, the youngest of my students being 5 years old. I have far more experience with Classical Music, but I also played rock in a few bands. I also studied Electronic music production, so I'm very open to whatever type of music you want to learn. Please feel free to tell me what is your intention in learning piano, whether it's playing Classical Music, learning songs by ear, or Music Theory, you name it. I'll be glad to give my best to help you achieve your goals.

    Adrian
    Guitar, Solfege, Ear Training, Rhythmic Training, Theory, Harmony and Jazz!
    A little about myself: I'm from Venezuela and I'm currently studying in Codarts. I'm a Jazz Guitar player. I've had experience from all sort of places, from Latin America to the US to Spain to The Netherlands, so I can offer a wide view about not only Jazz but music in general. I tent to focus specially on Technique, I want my student to discover a personal and deep connection with the instrument and knows it in broad sense. That means working on really knowing the guitar! I also emphasize my lessons on Ear Training and consider it an important skill for maximizing the student's playing experience. Rhythm is really important as well for any instrument. And I have a strong background in Music Theory and Harmony, since I'm not only a harmonist (guitar) but also I've studied the subject quite extensively.and I'm convinced it will enrich the student's playing and understanding of music. I will also focus on repertoire. My commitment is too always teach these skills/techniques in a practical way, so it makes sense to the student and therefore inspires her/him to discover more about music and enriches her/his playing!. If you are not a guitar player don't worry! I can teach all these subjects (except Guitar) to any kind of instrumentalist.. I will always adapt to the student's needs!
