    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!

    Celia
    Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offers music and piano lessons in Netherlands. Good price and quality :)
    Hello! My name is Celia. I'm from Spain and since last August I live Netherlands, being part as student of master in Art Therapies department in Codarts, Rotterdam. I have a bachelor diploma in Piano performance, and after having the opportunity to work as a piano teacher in Spain during the last two years, I've discovered in myself a real vocation of sharing, teaching and bringing piano music (and music in general) closer to all kind of people. I have experience with children, adults, and cases about different disabilities, as Asperger, autism or Down's Sindrom. I use in my lessons methods from different pedagogies, combining them in a different way for every student according to their neccesities, and always with creativity and with 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 the sounds it can produce.

    Piano&Music Lessons by Aleksandra (Buenos Aires-London-Rotterdam)
    Piano, harmony, music theory, aural training, arrangements and composition dedicated teacher. Vast experience with different ages and levels, preparation for international exams, auditions and competitions. "I am a superior piano professor and I have started teaching in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my home country, 8 years ago. Recently I was living in London, UK, where I worked as a full-time piano teacher in WKMT Piano Institute where I have trained and developed my pedagogic skills working with students from all around the world. This experience allowed me to mentor from professionals to early ages with very diverse backgrounds. These are the kind of experiences worth working for, and that confirm my engagement to my pedagogic aims. Building structures that fight to give a voice to the speechless is one of the values I learnt to care the most as a working woman, and that is the reason why I feel engaged with teaching music. Music is a tool to learn a whole different language and improve intelligence and creativity, no matter which is your background. Music is a way of finding how to express yourself in a specific language, and it is at the same time a fun and fascinating process. As a music teacher, I face a challenge every time I train a student, because learning music and learning piano implies a very personal developement. I am intending to continue this project in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where I live and study now (CODARTS - Master of Music - Tango) and where I intend to share my knowledge and experience with new students."

    Piano playing and Music lessons for every level and age
    Whether you are an experienced musician or a beginner, in this class you will learn how to approach piano playing in a relaxed but demanding way that will help you improve and reach your goals. I am a young but experienced and enthusiastic piano teacher, I have devoted all my life to music making and it is my passion to transfer this knowledge to other people. I have had many private pupils of all ages and levels and worked at SKVR Rotterdam with satisfactory results. My specialty is classical music, but I can also teach other styles of music (pop, jazz, minimal...), although I like to mix all of them in order to have a wider view and repertoire. Music theory, solfege, harmony, counterpoint and music history lessons are also available separately for a more detailed approach, but you will also learn some little things about them when playing the piano! All ages and levels are welcome, it is never too late to start learning something new!

    Adrian
    Guitar/Music Lessons with professional musician for all levels
    Guitar, Solfege, Ear Training, Rhythmic Training, Theory, Harmony, what you need! Learning Guitar starting in any level or preparing for Auditions, I can help you! 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!
