Murat Ali
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.

Victoria
Violin lesson and music theory for children and adults.
My name is Victoria. I give violin lessons in Rotterdam. Picking up a new instrument can sometimes be very difficult, so I will help you in this learning process. I can help beginners and advanced violinists to improve. My experience is that playing with a more experienced musician is more fun and benefits the development. As said, the level doesn't matter. I teach children (from 4 years old) and adults. Lessons can be given in Dutch, English or Russian. My program is very flexible and offers space for personal input. Whether you want a specific repertoire or you want to prepare for an audition, I can help you.

Zachary
Viola and Violin Lessons: Technique, Improv, and a Healthy Relationship with your Instrument
This course is for viola and violin students from the beginner through the high school level. My goal is for my students to foster a healthy and long-term relationship with their instrument. The course focuses on practicing and truly understanding technique, with an emphasis on listening. Weekly assignments tend to include technical exercises, scales, and classical pieces of the student's choice. Basic improvisation is also an interest of mine and, I find, a valuable experience for my string students. I believe repertoire is largely a matter of student taste. Students of mine have learned pieces in the Suzuki books and other classical repertoire volumes, but have also learned pop and fiddle songs according to their interest. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from the University of Puget Sound, where I graduated in 2015 before moving to Vienna to study privately for three years. I am currently in the Master of Viola Performance degree at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where I study with Ásdís Valdimarsdottir. I have been teaching violin intermittently since 2009. While my musical education is classical, my performance interests are much wider. I have performed jazz and pop improv, and am currently exploring how hip hop can be implemented on the viola and violin.

Natavan
Piano Courses in Rotterdam ( Basic to Advanced piano skills )
Hi! My name is Nata. I am from Baku (Azerbaijan), currently living in Rotterdam. I am a professional musician with a classical education (piano, organ, harpsichord) and 18 years of teaching experience. In addition, my music career is composed of a rich experience of performing on stage as a soloist, chamber performer, as well as performing with an orchestra. Being a participant of international competitions, festivals, and forums in Italy, Great Britain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Russia, the Baltic countries expanded my expertise even further. I have experience in an international school with children from different countries. Depending on the level of skills and preferences, I propose an individual approach to each of my students. You can choose the duration of the lesson, the frequency of classes, the time convenient for you. Repertoire preferences will also be taken into account. Group classes available for preschool age children. Classes can be held in English, Russian and Turkish.

Celia
Professional pianist, Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offer music and piano lessons in the Netherlands. Good quality :)
Hello! My name is Celia. I'm from Spain and I live in Rotterdam since August 2018. I currently study my second year of a master programme in Music therapy at Codarts, Rotterdam. I obtained my bachelor diploma in Piano performance in 2016 (Zaragoza, Spain), and after two years of experience in a music academy as a piano, harmony and music teacher in Spain (2016-2018) I discovered in myself a real vocation of sharing and bringing piano music (and music in general) closer to all kind of people not only by teaching but also by the use of music therapy. I have experience with children, adults, and cases about different disabilities, as Asperger, autism or Down's syndrome. I use in my lessons methods from different pedagogies, combining them in a different way for every student according to their needs, and always with creativity and taking 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 producing his/her own contribution to his/her development and enjoyment :)

Yiannis
Piano & music lessons, custom for individuals of all ages(6+), levels and styles
My name is Yiannis. I am a piano/keyboards player and composer. Being a member of various and diverse music projects and also leading my trio, playing in various European countries, is a fulfilling and motivating experience that makes me want to develop constantly, while fueling my passion and love for music. Besides performing, I have been teaching students of diverse age groups, different nationalities and backgrounds, of any level and style at music schools and in private since 2004. In my opinion sharing knowledge, passion and love for music with my students is of great importance, helping them to find or maximize their joy and skills of playing music and develop towards reaching their goals and dreams. Lessons The subjects I'm looking forward to working on with you, are: • Piano/keyboards in any style • Composition/Arranging/Songwriting • Music theory • Modern harmony • Ear training • Rhythm training (master’s thesis dissertation on “Applications of polyrhythms and note groupings in modern music performance”) • Producing (Cubase, synthesizers) • Digital music notation (Sibelius) • Band coaching • Individual practice/goal coaching • Preparation for entrance exams for Jazz and Pop Conservatories In our first lesson we will talk about your musical interests, background, and motivation in a friendly and relaxed environment (over a coffee or tea?). We will form an individual course structure, tailored according to your needs. Looking forward to work and have fun with you soon!

Pietro
Music, improvisation and music storytelling for Children
Every child is a musician an improviser and an explorer! This class will guide her/him through her/his own exploration of the music territories in order to develop creativity, listening skills, spontaneity in a safe, protected environment, free from judgment and strict music rules. This music path will build a strong and solid ground, for every kind of future music activity the child will take. This method involves singing, playing (I can provide some instruments like a guitar, little percussions, etc. for the lesson time), improvising, composing, drawing, writing and it's aimed to work in a playful way on the sense of rhythm and pitch, creativity, music-related analytic skills. The method wants to help and support the children in the discovery of the music in a personal and individual way, pinpointing out the children's needs, empowering her/his talents.

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!

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.
