VIOLIN and VIOLA lessons for ALL ages and levels with a professional teacher

Get into and explore the world of classical music through violin and viola !!

Dear music lovers,

I'm a professional violin and viola player who teaches students of all ages and levels.
During my musical education I had the opportunity to study in different conservatories in Spain, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland, awakening in me a passion for teaching the violin and viola and thus beginning to give private lessons and coaching youth orchestras.

In my lessons I help the student to feel enjoyment while playing, and feel happy with their instrument in order to connect with their musical imagination.
Considering the level and age, different methods and exercises will structure the lesson in order to get good aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body posture.

Not only interested in classical music?
The stable technical base you will reach during the lessons will give you the tools to feel free and comfortable playing in other styles with your instrument.

Reviews (2)

Francisco was an excellent teacher, who firstly took the time and trouble to understand my problems which I had built up in my viola playing. He helped me explore the outcome I was looking for and we discussed how to go about it. He had fully researched the music I was going play and showed me a new insight in to the music we looked at in the lesson. His knowledge of technique was very good and he was able to analysis the problems I was having and discuss practical ways of adjusting them. It was amazing how simply adjusting my shoulder rest could affect both my sound and intonation. He also discussed ways of looking at performance anxiety, and thorough out it all was most pleasant and encouraging.
Francisco is a great teacher. Very patient and calm. Always smiling, even when I am taking time to do things.

Violin lessons for beginners and intermediate students- children, adults and seniors!
Learning how to play a musical instrument is a path that only leads to growth. It is an activity that is challenging, beautiful and extremely rewarding. It allows you to connect your body and mind through a creative proccess that can be shared with others. I really believe that studying the violin has the power to stimulate the intellect, enhance creativity and let us enjoy music, not only by listening, but also by producing it! If this resonates, please keep reading! I am Julia, a classical violin player. I studied at Codarts university in Rotterdam and played in an Orchestral Academy for a year in Spain. I discovered I enjoy teching very much while following a minor in education during my bachelor. Throughout the course I learned pedagogy, didactics and methodology, and worked with students of different ages and levels of experience. I love teaching because it allows me to share my knowledge and challenges me to be more imaginative and flexible. The lessons are tailor-made. This means that the goals are going to be adapted to YOUR wishes taking in account previous experience, expectations and musical taste. Even though I have a classical training, I am open to work with different styles. I teach children from 5 years old onwards and adults. Where words leave off, music begins...

Musical Mayhem: Fun and Creative Lessons for All!!.
Hey there, Are you in need of a talented and fun-loving music teacher? Well, look no further! I'm your gal. First of all, let me just say that I love music. Like, seriously love it. And there's nothing that brings me more joy than sharing that love with others. That's why I've spent the last decade of my life teaching music theory, performance, and technique to students of all ages and levels. But here's the thing, I don't believe that music has to be all serious and stuffy. In fact, I think that learning music should be a fun and enjoyable experience. That's why I strive to create a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in my lessons, complete with jokes, puns, and maybe even some karaoke sessions (if you're lucky). Now, don't get me wrong, I take my job seriously. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and a Master's degree in Music Performance, so you can rest assured that I know my stuff. But I also believe that learning music should be a joyful and exciting journey. So, if you're looking for a music teacher who can not only teach your students how to make them laugh, then look no further. I'm your girl. Let's make beautiful music together!

Classical or Popular Music lessons for Violists/Violinists
Viola lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels and violin lessons for beginners and intermediate levels, specialised in classical music, pop or Latin music. Are you curious about playing different musical styles and exploring different possibilities with your instrument? With pop and/or latin genres, we will deal with rhythmic training, arranging skills, accompanying, interpretation and basic improvisation, as well as developing good technical skills on the instrument. Basic knowledge about the instrument is preferred. With classical music, we are going to be able to dive deeply into the instruments technical and expressive possibilities and work on classical repertoire from different periods. Classical and popular music are very good complements for each other. However, it is also possible to work only on one genre, depending on your interests :)

Leonor
Vocal and music theory lessons - breathing - posture
We will find your needs together and start working from that point. You can come with no experience at all and I will help you to explore and develop your voice. It's also not important if you cannot read music, I can help you with that as well. If you are already a singer, we will work in order to refine your technique. Voice, breathing, and posture are connected and fundamental for a healthy technique so we will also work on that while we focus on your voice. Singing can be very personal and confronting but do not fear, we work in a safe environment. Let yourself be surprised with what you can achieve!! The lesson can be in English, Spanish, Portuguese, or Italian.
