Accordion lessons for all levels in Rotterdam or via Skype

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 the instrument.
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 in Rotterdam, as well as Skype lessons.

Thank you!

Extra information

- 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)

About Me

Hello!

My name is Helena 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!

Miloš
I teach accordion at the beginner, intermediate and expert levels.
Hi! I am an accordion teacher! Through education, I gave private lessons mostly to older students. At the University of Linz, I chose pedagogy (as an elective module) where I had the opportunity to work with children in a group and individual classes. I am currently employed at a music school in Prijepolje (Serbia) where I work with children aged 10 to 14. I have a lot of patience in my classes with children and I primarily try to convey to them my love for music and then everything else necessary for their progress. I am also creative in finding different solutions when it comes to solving problems. Also, knowing how much stress music can sometimes cause at performances, I believe that with support and understanding towards the student and experience-based advice, we can help eliminate or reduce these problems.

ACCORDION / BANDONEON lessons for all levels and ages
Hello! My name is Kaspar. I am a professional accordion & bandoneon player from Estonia and currently based in Brussels, Belgium. I'm holding a bachelor degree in jazz music (accordion, keyboards) from Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and master degree (bandoneon) in World Music / Argentine Tango from Codarts / Hogeschool voor de kunsten (Rotterdam, the Netherlands). During my prior studies, I have found, that I would like to specialize in Argentinian tango/folklore and combine my previous knowledge and skills in jazz and world music as an interpreter and composer. I have been teaching accordion, bandoneon, jazz piano, and music theory for the last 9 years and I have experience with students of different ages and levels. I'm offering accordion and bandoneon lessons for all ages and levels. Topics: - Technical aspects (scales, modes, exercises, patterns, timing and tone control) - Improvisation and phrasing in different styles - jazz, tango (traditional and tango nuevo), Argentine folklore and classical music and how to adapt them on accordion/bandoneon - Music theory - How to make the accompaniment and to build chords More information about me: For the last 6 years, I have been a composer and a leader in a band called Abraham’s Café. The group has given more than 150 concerts around Estonia and abroad at different jazz clubs and festivals. We have recorded 2 albums – “Journey to Haran” (2013) and “Berber Cinema” (2015). The music of the last album “Berber Cinema” was mainly composed for the Estonian-Palestinian documentary film “Rough Stage”, for which they also toured in Palestine in autumn 2015. For the last five years, I have involved bandoneon into my performances and played Argentinian music in duos with guitarist Martin Lopez Muro (ARG); accordionist Jaak Lutsoja (EST); Martin-Eero Kõressaar (EST); Isabel Bermejo (ESP), Trio Maag (EST) and bigger ensembles - Gran Orquesta Típica OTRA (NL) , Septeto Camaleón (NL) etc.

Camille
Chromatic Accordion - Chord Chords - Private Lessons
Multi-instrumentalist artist, I offer private lessons of chromatic accordion with classical keys (keyboard with buttons) beginner and intermediate level in Waluwe-Saint-Pierre and its surroundings, and online. These lessons are open to children (from 10 years old), adolescents and adults. They are adapted and personalized according to the aptitudes and musical tastes of each student. They can be done with or without learning music theory, and take place at my workplace or at home. Regarding my experience, I practice the accordion for more than twelve years and has been teaching for almost two years. I took private lessons for five years in a company of accordionists in the north of France. I then continued as a self-taught, wishing to break the misconceptions about this instrument often reduced to balls musette. The accordion is a conductor by itself, so it adapts to all styles of music. It is by relying on the teaching of my teachers as well as on the learning methods of Médard Ferrero and the Galliano brothers that I have developed a pedagogy that adapts to each one and with the long-term goal of l autonomy as a musician. It also aims the development of the musical ear and the opening to different musical styles. COURSE BREAK: - Solfeggio (Key of Sol and Fa) - Mastery of the singing keyboard (right hand) - Mastering fundamental and complementary bass (left hand) - Major perfect agreements - Synchronization of both hands - Tonic and dominant seventh chords - Minor agreements - Ranges and tones - Film music, variety, adaptation of current music (pop, rock, etc.), jazz, waltz, java, tango, etc. - Musical culture A musical kiss!
