Great lesson! David explains everything very well and is patient and professional! Really enjoyed it!
Excellent teacher, looking forward to the next lesson!
I am a native Spanish speaker (from Spain) and also a language enthusiastic. I combine the use of some vocabulary books with speaking practice (which I think it's the most important thing). So we would focus on topics from the books, as a starting point, and then practice speaking, using the vocabulary in real life conversations. Contact me for more information or any other question, I will be happy to answer you.

Eduardo
Saxophone, Clarinet, Piano and Music Theory classes taught by graduates in Music Performance
Hi! My name is Eduardo, a professional musician and long-time music teacher. I am offering physical and online lessons in Music Theory, Improvisation and Instrument. #Harmony #Composition #Solfège #Saxophone #Clarinet #Piano Lessons are addressed to every student profile, regardless of age, level of expectations (no matter if it is seen as a hobby or rather if the individual is getting prepared for official Conservatory auditions, etc.). We will play and/or focus on what the student is willing to deepen into (whatever music style they are interested in, more theoretical aspects or rather practical ones), trying to get the maximum profit of the employed time, and prioritizing the actual learning of the person as the main factor for their motivation. I obtained my Jazz Music Master's program at the Prince Claus Conservatoire of Groningen in June 2022. Previously, in 2018, I graduated from my music Bachelor's at the Conservatorio Superior de Música del Liceu in Barcelona (Spain).

Lise
Clarinet lessons, children or adults (beginner-intermediate)
Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.

Giannis
Drum lesson from passionate young Greek drummer, student at the Royal conservatory of the Hague!!
Teaching should always be fun!! Hey!! I am Giannis. I am a Greek jazz drummer and I study in the Royal conservatory of the Hague. In the past, I have taught in private lessons where I try to communicate my love about music to my students as my teachers did for me. Lessons for all levels and ages!! For beginners: - We work on songs that the student wants to learn and we develop the sense of rhythm and the appropriate technique to play the drums. For intermediate level: - We work on getting a sufficient drummer with good tempo, developed vocabulary and wide repertoire.

Adil
Classical Piano and/or Music Theory Classes for Beginners
I teach basic piano and music theory. If you want to learn how to play piano or get familiar with music analysis/solfege, I will be glad to help you out. Currently, I'm in my second year at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. As well, I have studied music production in college before.

Máximo
Piano lessons for reading sheet music, learning favorite pieces, improvising and more.
Piano lessons for reading sheet music, learning favorite pieces, improvising and more. In a very calm and friendly environment, the classes are organized and planned according to the students goals/wishes. I can teach you about harmony, how to construct and play melodies and whatever interest in music you might have. While improving the piano technique, I will make sure the student enjoys the lesson and has a sense of improvement every week.

João
Piano and music lessons (Intoduction to piano Jazz, Bossa Nova...)
Music is in our everyday life, wheather we realise it or not. To go in to music and start learning it is as natural as learning how to walk, cicle, or even breathe! Whichever the instrument, It is one of the most beautifull experiences we can give to ourselves, bound to take us to new and undiscovered places. My name is João, I'm from Portugal, I'm 24 years of age, and I'm doing my bachelor in jazz at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. I've been playing piano all my life, and can't wait to share what I've learned with you! I teach piano to all ages from beguinner to intermedeate. Although I have a program, I will let you create your own path, taking in to acccount the several landmarks I create acording to your level and needs. Teaching is all about the individuality of each person I work with, and as a student myself, I find it to be one of the most important points in teaching. I focus mainly in jazz music, but since music theory and harmony respect all kind of music, I am open to every sugestion you bring in to the class. The lessons will focus on learning music through listening, as well as introducing the student to music theory, and reading scores. Whether you like Pop, Jazz, Bossa Nova or Classical, all music come from the same place, so let's dive in!

Elsa

Hi! I am Elsa, I am 22 and I come from France. I am currently in my 4th year bachelor at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague. I have been playing cello for 18 years and teaching children, teenagers and adults for 5 years.

•Learn how to play saxophone, develop your musicality and build your own repertoire (for all kind of music and levels)
“Don't play the saxophone. Let it play you.” - Charlie Parker - Everyone of us has is own musicality, we have just to let her come out. The goal of my lesson is to let you discover how much fun and passion music can gives. Music has no age: you're never too young or too old to tell yourself through a musical instrument. If you love and recognize yourself in the warm sound of the saxophone then what are you waiting for!? Let's start this wonderful Music journey Together :) “Whatever you think can't be done, somebody will come along and do it.” – Thelonious Monk SAXOPHONE LESSON: To learn how to transfer your musical ideas into the saxophone is required a total connection between your body and your mind with the horn. That's why for the first part of every lesson will be focused on the Sound and the saxophone technique. You need to learn how to build your own saxophone tone and how to sing into the instrument. This process can take some weeks for really beginners but it'll show you how the musical practice can positive effect your all body and emotions, as well as your creativity. In order to make your music journey more fun and personal my lessons will be based on your music interests and purpose (learn how to read music, improvisation ecc…) During this journey together we'll build your own repertoire of songs that most represent you, which we'll dedicate the second part of the lesson. FOR NERDY ;) For those who wants to go deeper into the world of saxophone I'll organize some special 'listening section' focus on the the role of Saxophone in the music history and in the different kind of music. From the classical repertoire (Gershwin, Bizet, Milhaud, Rota, Bernstein, Steve Reich, Michael Nyman…) passing through the more popular: Blues, Jazz (Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly, Sonny Rollins…), latin , rock&roll, Pop until nowadays. We'll listen to the milestones of the great composers and performers that have made the history of this fantastic instrument. I'm sure It'll be a journey of discovery the beauty of the music to which this instrument has made, and a big inspiration for you to grow the passion toward this amazing form of art.

Tibor
Improvisation, Jazz-piano, Jazz-theory, Music-theory, Classical piano for beginners in The Hague
I am improviser, pianist from Hungary, currently doing my BA degree in jazz-piano at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague. I have a classical background of 9 years and I study jazz for 6 years. I mainly play improvised music, and my own compositions. I offer individual lessons and coaching. Online lessons are only possible for theory lessons. I aim to have students challenged, motivated, but not overwhelmed. I take extra care to find out the students own learning tempo, and adjust the material to it.

Branko
Drum Lessons for all levels - all styles considered!
Do you want to play in a band, play for fun at home with friends, or become a proffecional drummer? Come for a lesson in my studio and see what you'd like to learn. If you like a certain style, we will focus on it and develop your playing towards your taste. I've been playing, teaching and studying drums for over 15 years now. I take it very seriously and try to tailor my teaching to every student that I have. I can use my experience as a proffecional musician to make you progress fast and focus on things not every teacher knows from books. In this course we will focus on technique as well as creativity and improvisation (one of the most enjoyable aspects of playing drums). Do you have any other percussion instrument you'd like to expand your knowledge on? I can offer you percussion lessons as well since I have a lot of experience in playing percussion as well. If you want to study with me I can provide a stable program for development for fast results including scores, exercises, etc. About me: As well as teaching, I'm mainly a performer of music - I've been playing drums with different bands as well as classical percussion for more than 15 years now in many different settings. In the last years of my development I've taken a closer look to jazz, pop, hip hop and rock music. I can use my experience to find good qualities in my students and develop them as much as possible. I hope you consider me to be your teacher :)

Enrico
Guitar Lessons for all ages, for all levels with international working jazz musician!
"Music is a social experience". That's the main thing that, regardless of wanting to be a professional musician or just play to have fun, music can offer to us: we can learn how to be among people, and get to know things about music itself, people and even ourselves! It's also a great way to get our own personality and have fun: it enhances our sensitivity and it's just a fun way to spend time! Anyways, how rude, I'm Enrico, a world-touring guitar player, composer and band leader, and I'm really glad you're reading this presentation. I grew up in a small town in the South of Italy, Crispiano, where I started playing guitar as a game, because it was such a great way to spend my afternoons and get together with my friends, just like playing video games or soccer, and here I am now ... my passion became my life! I like to teach that in my lessons: how fun it is to discover new things on your instrument and share them with all your friends ... starting with me. I'd love you to play with me during our lessons and learn things by doing them, starting with what you already like, playing your favorite songs together so you can go out and do the same with your friends! I've been lucky enough to meet teachers and colleagues that had the same approach with me, starting from my classical guitar studies in Italy, through the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where I'm currently finishing my jazz guitar Bachelor, till the masters or jazz music in New York City, which I had the luck to study with, like Peter Bernstein, Barry Harris or Dave Kikoski. This led me, despite my young age, to share the stage with great superstars on the international jazz scene such as Joe Magnarelli, Gadi Lehavi, Felix Rossy and many others and recording my first album, "Social Music" out with A.MA Records in July 2019!

I appreciate her enlightenment of jazz to me. Mandy was very responsible in class, she would begin with some warming–up vocal exercises with us, with explanations about how to do them correctly, and explain the different characteristics of jazz music in detail, such as rhythms, forms, harmony etc. She also paid great attention to examples and communication. After class, Mandy also gave us some useful exercises and taught us to use different devices and APP for practising so that we could better master singing skills. In Mandy, I can see her great passion for music. Besides jazz, Mandy has always been dedicated to combining Eastern and Western cultures. She is a good teacher with passion and heart." - Ally "Mandy practising teacher and a nice person. I've known her for several years. She had taught me a lot with vocal technique and Jazz knowledge. She's very patient and kind when she's teaching students. No matter if we did well or not, she would go through with us over and over again. Meanwhile, Mandy is also a very talented singer and musician. She did a lot of perfect stage performances. She is one of the best singers in China. Although she has already gotten a lot of achievements, she still keeps enterprising and self-disciplined and never stops learning and improving herself." - Baixue "Mandy is a teacher who is particularly good at guiding students. She teaches students following their aptitude and seizes the characteristics of each student. I always feel relaxed and happy in her lessons. Also, I understood all she taught me in the lessons. I highly recommend her!!!" - Grecia "Mandy is a very passionate and patient teacher. I have learned a lot from her singing & music theory lessons. When I encountered problems, she was always willing to help me and patiently answer my questions. She also uses different methods and provides more references to me to think better and learn and comprehend vocal music in the long term. I am very grateful to Ms Chen because I have been greatly motivated to feel the charm of vocal music after having lessons with her, which inspires me to learn and practice more vocal music." - Zoe
