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.

Myrto
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.

Maya
Composition Lesson for children and adults in Amstrdam
Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music. My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real. For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions. I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more. Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.

Celia
Professional pianist, Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offer music and piano lessons in the Netherlands. Good quality :)
Piano performance & Music therapy Hello! My name is Celia. I’m from Spain and I’m currently studying Music Therapy at the Rotterdam conservatory. I recently become a Music Therapy intern at Florence, The Hague. I obtained my bachelor diploma in piano performance in 2016. I have performed concerts as a soloist, in duet with other pianists and in bigger ensembles/orchestras. Since I moved to the Netherlands, I’m also part of a music trio where we perform pop, jazz, arrangements and compositions from our singer. All these experiences together give me for sure a big capacity of working repertoire and understand the different needs of my students as a teacher! 🙂 As I’m in education as a therapist, I also use all my knowledge in combination with Music Therapy skills with all my students and especially with people who demand a different experience during a music lesson. Free and guided improvisations, active play, and receptive music therapy are some of the techniques I currently use. Music Therapy techniques allow you to play music without any knowledge of theory, so it’s very useful when in the middle of the lesson you need a break or when you just need to connect with yourself, for example. You can always have a trial session if Music Therapy triggers your curiosity 😉 Learn & explore During more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I have worked all kind of people: children, adults, people with disabilities, families… I’m quite flexible and able to adapt my way of teaching to the circumstances! I like to work individually and in groups. Each way has its own advantages! In my lessons I use all methods I could experiment myself among my piano career; I’m also always open for new knowledge, repertoire and ways of working what my students may propose me. It’s fascinating how I never stop learning new repertoire and music styles thanks to my students! I try to offer music in a different way for every student according to their needs, with creativity and a relaxed ambience where the student can learn and explore. Each person has his/her own rhythm… which in my opinion is very important to respect. I also work with music theory, explaining concepts to my students from the pieces we play. I find this way is effective, instructive and much more motivating 🙂 In my lessons, we can work on classical, jazz, pop, arrangements, 4-hands piano music, improvisation and much more! Happiness Music needs a bit of commitment. It’s like a plant: a bit of water every day is much better than a lot of water just one day per week! However, every plant is different, and in the end, the important thing is that you feel happy and motivated during your learning process. This is also important for me, so for sure I always try my best to help my students in that aspect. The enjoyment of music (and everything) makes you learn much faster, don’t you think? Feel free to ask any kind of question! :)

Mihael
Guitar lessons in Rotterdam ( Learn according to your preferences and goals)
Throughout my 10+ years of experience in playing guitar, I have been part of various bands, played live, participated in competitions and projects, as well as composed and arranged music both as solo and rhythm guitarist. The main characteristic of my teaching approach is maintaining relaxed and informal ambient during lessons, but also keeping focus on completing the previously set goals for each lesson. That being said, whichever your motivation to learn guitar is (wanting to learn a set of specific songs and solos, wanting to learn basic chord structures for pop songs, wanting to learn enough to impress friends or wanting to get a more comprehensive musical understanding of guitar), we will set the strategy and goals accordingly in order for you to learn efficiently! :) P.S. If you're a writer of lyrics who needs help in making melodies and music to your song, I can also help with that.

Learn piano and start a beautiful musical journey!
I am studying Bachelor as violinist in Codarts Univerisity of Arts.But I've been playing piano since I am 3 years old and I finished my middle professional musical education of both instruments in Spain, where I also played in some youth orchestras. (That means that I have been playing piano for 18 years) I teach on all levels: kids who want to start playing and adults who want to improve their musical skills (or adults who are just about to start this musical journey!). In my lessons (that can be taught in english, spanish or russian) apart from improving your technical and musical skills, you will also learn some theorical aspects of music. I always do my best to make you a better musician. IMPORTANT: I do not teach at home, I prefer to move to the student's place.

Yenting
Songwriting, Composition, Music Theory and Arranging
There's a lot to exploring in songwriting and composition! To be able to write a good song, or to translate what you have in mind into music sheet and sound, you'd need to have some creativity and musical tools! If you're a total beginner, don't worry, we'll start from basic music theory and analyzing, little by little we'll make sure you complete your own music. If you already have some musical knowledge, then I have a pocketful of exercises for you, from motives to lyrics, from structures to harmony, from concepts to arrangements, etc. Feel free to contact me for any questions!

Davide Guido
Music Production, Music Theory, Composition, Cello, Sound Engineering
My name is Davide and my music experience started when I was 10 years old during my middle school in Italy. I started playing cello and I kept on studying classical music for 8 years, performing as a soloist and in many orchestras and ensembles. In the meanwhile, I started being interested in electronic music and composition for soundtracks. When I turned 17 I realized that music would have been my passion and my job. I graduated in “Contemporary Writing and Production” at Pescara Conservatory in Italy. During these studies, I dove deeper into Pop and Experimental Electronic Music, orchestration, and orchestral composition. I also had the opportunity to play in different bands and discover different genres such as Post Rock, Progressive Metal, and Heavy Metal. After my bachelor's degree, I finished my studies following a Master's program at Codarts (Rotterdam) in Creative Production. During those two years, I had the opportunity to collaborate with many people and explore different kinds of music (Turkish, Flamenco, Jazz, etc.). I wrote an Artistic Research about electronic unquantized music by analyzing the sound of producers such as Flume, Burial, and Arca. Now that my studies are finished I feel that I want to spread my knowledge and my passion to many people as possible. My class subjects are: - Music Production (from beginners to expert level, mainly Ableton Live and Pro Tools classes) - Cello Lessons (from beginners to intermediate level) - Music Theory (from beginners to expert level) - Composition and Orchestration (explore the world and joy of composing for an orchestra and how to use your DAW as a real symphonic orchestra). As a Producer, I want to let the student feel completely free to ask me whatever he/she wants. I have had many experiences as a producer and I know how to handle many different genres. My first teaching experience was at 17 years old and from that moment on I did not change my teaching set-up. I want the lesson to be an interactive moment in which the teacher and the student are sharing ideas and opinions. Feel free to apply for the lessons. I look forward to meeting you!

N. Kaori Fornós
Play the piano or make your own song. Music is sweet.
Use your musical power, write / compose your own pop music and then record. Or do you want to be able to choose music that you like? Should not be out of your level, we can play from pop to classical music, every student is different and therefore also my method.

Alicia Cerrada
Experienced teacher in piano, improvisation and music theory lessons
Music is for everybody and we should all be able to enjoy it! I teach to children (also with ASD) and adults, and my aim is to open their musical imagination, improve their position and technique in the piano, and to have a good time enjoying music! You can choose what goes better with you: classical, pop, tango, latin, ballads... and we will work together to make it happen! We will do also improvisation and composition exercises (if the student wants). I can teach individual lessons or with groups of two people. Ask for a first lesson or more information!
