Reviews (1)

Sofia is a great teacher! I picked up piano as an adult during the lockdown and decided to get a teacher to ensure that I was learning things correctly. Sofia is very patient, selects great pieces to play to keep me challenged and interested, gives excellent feedback on how to play them well and clear explanations on music theory. I really look forward to our lessons each week and would 100% recommend Sofia if you are considering getting piano lessons.
Description: This course is a beginning level music course which presupposes no background in byzantine music. - History of Byzantine Music and Christian Hymnography Overview of the history and development of the Psaltic Art (Byzantine Music) of Greek Orthodox worship. - Byzantine Music Theory and Practice Introduction to musical scales, and to most of the main characters or notes the student will encounter in church music. Basic principles of rhythm, time, measure, ascending and descending notes, Parallagi (solfège) and Melos (chanting the lyrics). Goals: The aim of this course is to teach the student how to read the byzantine musical notations through an easy method, in order to be able to interpret short hymns from the Orthodox Church liturgical books. Homework: After each class, the students are responsible to revise all the materials given in class. Will be given short assignments they will have to complete until the next class.
You have a basic knowledge in music, you play an instrument and want to start writing and creating your own music? Then this lesson is for you. Learn how to engrave your music, using notation software. Learn how to record, edit and mix your music with the simplest equipment at home.

Vanessa
Singing lessons, technique and interpretation in Rotterdam and online!
Voice is an amazing instrument with numerous possibilities. It is an instrument connected with the mind and the body. In the class we will work on relaxation techniques and stress relief, singing technique and support. Since every person is unique and perceives music and singing differently, we will work individually on what the student needs. In the class we will also work in interpretation of the songs the student wishes to sing. Repertoire lessons of folk music(greek, modal) are also offered. I am coming from Athens, Greece and I moved to Rotterdam in 2017 to study singing and modal music in Codarts Conservatory of Rotterdam. I am a professional singer since 2010 and at the moment I am performing regularly in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Grece. I am offering singing lessons which I love and I also learn a lot during that procedure.

My name is David, I'm a trumpet player, composer, and conductor based in Rotterdam. I started to study music when I was 8 years old and I get the Professional Music degree in the specialty of classical trumpet at the Conservatory of Noia (Galicia, Spain) and I've been playing Jazz since I was a teenager.

Beatrice
Piano lessons for children in Rotterdam: give your children the experience of playing the piano with a creative approach!
Surprise, fun, creativity, love for making music: this is what your kid will experience! Music is a gift. I believe that when we are young, music should be a constant discovery. Your kid will be able to explore music at their own pace, while growing techincal and musical skills. My name is Beatrice and I am a singer, composer and performer with a background in jazz piano. I am 26 years old, I come from Italy and I have been living in Rotterdam since 2018. What I like the most about teaching is seeing the students enthusiastic about their achievements. For me, it's a joy to be part of the process, and I find it important to show how beautiful music can be. I do my best to make the students leave the room with the feeling that they learned something new, that they had fun, that in those 30 minutes they had the chance to grow, be curious, discover something. My mission is to make them enjoy music every lesson a little bit more. When I teach piano to children, I like to stimulate the creativity of the students, I let them discover and create, explore the different sounds of the piano, compose their own little songs and do ear training through music games. All this alongside with learning the basics of piano playing: reading the pentagram, feeling the pulse, understanding the dynamics and learning the basics of music theory. I can teach in: Italian, English, Dutch, Spanish and French.
