Drum, percussion and music theory lessons in Rotterdam!

‘’Music has the power to inspire and connect people and give them a chance to express themselves.’’

I am a drummer, teacher, composer and arranger. In my home country and abroad I have been fortunate to work with some of the best musicians and bands: Croatian TV-Radio Jazz orchestra, HGM A Band, The Frajle, Davor Krizic Experiment and many others and to lead my own bands.

My qualifications:
-Primary and Secondary School for Popular and Jazz Music in Zagreb
-University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria (Bachelor of Music)
-currently doing my master studies in jazz drums at Codarts in Rotterdam.

My goal as a teacher is to recognize and bring out the potential in each student and help them find their own way of expression. In the lessons we focus on: technique, sound, coordination, reading skills, interpretation, improvisation, grooves and independence.

If you are wondering: yeah, that's cool but does she like pineapple on a pizza? Or: I wonder if she thinks that hot-dog is a sandwich? I hope to answer those questions and many more on our first lesson!

P.S. Lessons are taught in English and Croatian.

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."

Helena Sousa
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!

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!
