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!

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 am a professional accordion player willing to share my knowledge and love for music
Hi! I am an accordion teacher! Throughout my teaching career, I was working with students of different ages. 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 in individual classes. I was also giving many private lessons to academy students. 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 learning music can cause sometimes, I believe that with support and experience-based advice, I can help eliminate or reduce these problems.

Selma
Teaches chromatic accordion in the Orléanaise region and in the Paris region
My pedagogy consists in proposing to the pupil several ways which will allow him to explore the instrument. I propose several approaches with, in particular, a work on the quality of the sound, the touch, the bellows, the ease to play and the music. Also, I take a benevolent look at the student's health since the instrument, by its size and weight, can hinder the musician. Learning this instrument requires diligence and rigor, which is why I am committed to helping the student organize his work with the help, for example, of a schedule. Dialogue and listening, between student and teacher, is essential to progress in learning this superb instrument.
