Very fun and age-appropriate lesson for my 4.5 year old. April follows a lesson book, which has been fun to review during the week. My daughter was sad when class was over!

Seen Tung
Piano/Music theory/Composition & Arranging lessons tailored to your needs and wishes
Hello, this is Seen! I am a pianist, composer and arranger from Hong Kong, currently studying at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I am offering piano and music theory lessons tailored to your needs and wishes. Perhaps you are an enthusiastic adult beginner, or you want to pick it up again after not touching the instrument for some time? Or perhaps you are looking for a teacher for your child? I have been giving music lessons for the past 9 years to students at different levels aging from 5 to 60. I understand that we all approach music in various ways and everyone needs different styles of guidance. I am looking forward to getting to know you and experiment with how I can help you along the way. Perhaps you want to play pieces from the classical repertoire? Or perhaps you want to acquire the skill of learning your favourite pop songs by ear, or learn to read lead sheets and chord symbols? Perhaps you want to learn to accompany yourself singing? Perhaps you want to learn improvisation over chord progressions? As a musician grew up with classical music training and later moved on to explore jazz and pop, I enjoy helping you to deepen your understanding about different styles and to have fun with playing! Perhaps you’ve always wanted to improve your piano technique, but get turned off by studies and scale practice? Perhaps you wish to acquire a stronger sense of rhythm or a more sophisticated control of sound? In my experience, advanced technique comes along with a tension-free body and mental space, and we can work on that together. I also find creating unique musical exercises that adapts to students’ needs makes the learning process more enjoyable. Perhaps you would love to integrate music into your daily life, but find it challenging to keep the momentum and interest in a long term? I try to structure our lessons so that students can see steady progress. I also understand that incorporating a habit can be a tricky part, so we can also develop study and practice plans together and explore ways to make your practice time more efficient. Perhaps you not only want to learn the instrument, but are also interested about the theories behind the music? Perhaps you want to learn some basic arranging skills and write for an ensemble that you play with? Perhaps you want to try composing your own music? As a composer and arranger, I would also love to share my experience on these subjects with you. Music is an enormous universe and there are always new territories to explore. I’m still a student on this journey, and I’m more than excited to share my experience and accompany you on your way!

Duarte
Piano, Keyboard, Harpsichord Lessons; Solfège and Music Theory
Music has always been one of the central pillars of human expression, whichever the medium or style. I believe any student's goals and needs can be fulfilled in an interesting and efficient way with the right approach. On my lessons, I usually focus on the Baroque repertoire and Styles to nurture and develop the student's inherent musical skills, but other styles are also welcome, ultimately the material covered in lesson depends on the student's own curiosity and preferences.

Federica
Jazz/Pop/Classical Piano/Music lessons for all ages
Hi, I'm Federica, I am Italian and I am a jazz piano player and singer, I studied at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague. I'm doing my Master at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I give piano jazz/pop/classical piano lessons but my main goal is to try to give to the student a general underestanding of the music in order to approach every style and to have fun with music! I really love to work with children, I like to teach them good values like patience, selfe-confidence, trust, communication, collaboration, all through the music. That's what I learn every day by studying music and that's what I would like to transfer to my students. I've been told that If you have music in your life, you can't be a bad person. I believe in it. I offer live and online lessons: Piano Vocals Ear Training Technique Improvisation Repertoire Music Theory

Illia
Classical and pop piano lessons, music theory and solfège (Russian method of training perfect pitch)
I have been playing the piano since I was five. I graduated from a specialized music school in Kiev and now I am a student at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I teach both, classical and pop music. I have a very positive approach in teaching and will try to generate a motivating environment, as I understand that learning piano can be frustrating for some! My goal is to help you enjoy piano as well as seeing steady progress.

Fiachra
Piano or Music Theory Lessons from an experienced and knowledgeable teacher
Hello! I am pleased to be offering piano lessons to beginner and intermediate level students! Alongside the technicalities of playing the instrument, I have a broad knowledge of different genres of music. If you are interested in writing your own music that is wonderful! I will be delighted to give you all the skills you need. We can begin with any genre of music from the first lesson. Knowledge of how to read sheet music is not necessary for beginners. I trained in piano at the TUD Conservatory of Music in Dublin, and have had many performance opportunities there and in Amsterdam. I have also been taking regular piano lessons and at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam since I arrived here. I have taught piano in various different music schools and programmes in Ireland, but my main experience is from private teaching.

Teemu
Piano and theory lessons in Jazz / Pop / Classical / Rock etc
Hi there! I've studied jazz piano & composition at Conservatorium van Amsterdam and Helsinki Conservatory, played live concerts & recorded albums with many various artists in different genres from jazz, rock to classical music. Currently I offer only lessons via Zoom-connection.* I use a camera above the piano keyboard, so you'll see my hands and the keys clearly when showing playing examples. Every student is very welcome in my lessons. We'll start from where you are in your playing and I'll structure the lessons around your interests. So if you are a beginner or perhaps a more seasoned player, you are very welcome. If you have any questions about my lessons, I'll be happy to answer them! After the lessons I make a PDF for each student about the theory we discussed and other details if necessary. *live lessons available in Amsterdam from August-September 2021 onwards. We take care of proper covid-measures if the pandemic is still.

Ayla
Cello, Piano and Music lessons in Utrecht. All levels and different genres!
My goal as a music teacher is to make the students able to experience all types of emotions by playing music, understanding the musical process from its roots with a creative approach. My lessons are designed according to the specific needs of each student and the main objective is to guide them in the optimal direction to achieve their full potential in a fun way. Thereby, the instrument becomes a tool to understand what making music really means and will be a way for the student to express his emotions. My approach to the lessons can provide a lot of creativity, fun and originality. How will my lessons look like From the first lesson, the student will start making music. We will begin learning the basic concepts of music, developing listening and rhythmic skills with fun exercises. Lessons will also be focused on learning the basics of music theory, creating a solid technical base and paying special attention to having a relaxed and healthy body posture. My academic and professional experience has helped me create a teaching method where improvisation is an essential tool for the student. I enjoy working on it from the beginning since it is a perfect way to develop musicality. Playing different music genres together As a musician, another of my sources of inspiration is to get to know and to learn from different styles, playing and experimenting with music from the classical period until the most avant-garde style. During the lessons, we will play pop, jazz, classical and many other styles. I would like to explore the instrument with the student in a fun way, growing, improving, and discovering new ways of making music together. During the lessons the students and I could play together, either playing some duos with the cello or accompanying them with the piano, which is an activity that I really enjoy. Playing together with more people and with a polyphonic instrument from the beginning will give the student clues to learn how to play in ensembles and listen to all the different voices that can be part of any musical composition.

Jasper
Piano les voor beginners en gevorderden (in Nederlands / Engels)
Leer je favoriete muziek spelen op piano Op gehoor of visueel (dmv. tutorials of bladmuziek) Voor mij is het belangrijkste dat jij plezier hebt in wat je doet. Dat begint bij het spelen van de muziek waar jij van houdt. Het uitgangspunt van de lessen is om jou te begeleiden in wat jij wilt leren en bereiken. Dat zullen we op een stapsgewijze manier doen waarbij we op een ontspannen tempo door het lesmateriaal heen gaan. Ik ben op zoek naar enthousiaste leerlingen die graag nieuwe vaardigheden willen leren en nieuwsgierig zijn hoe ze zich verder kunnen ontwikkelen in hun pianospel en aanverwante zaken. Naast het leren spelen van je favoriete muziek kan ik je begeleiden in de volgende zaken: Muzikale gehoortraining Improvisatie Werken met DAW (Logic) (Thuis) Studio opnames Muziek productie (editing, mixing, mastering) Muziek theorie (digitale) Muzieknotatie Compositie en songwriting

Patrícia
Singing lessons in different styles: Classical, Jazz, Pop!
My teaching method meets the student's needs. Above all, I try to make people keep their passion and taste for music and my main goal is to make music or art a pleasure and not a sacrifice. I motivate students, showing them the benefits of exploring their unique talents, but also not hiding the need for continuous work and with some obstacles, sometimes difficult, to overcome. I let the students bring their own musical choices and, over time, I also recommend material that I think may be useful for a faster, simpler, and more efficient evolution. As I said, I focus on the pleasure of singing but also on the technique that allows us to achieve the best results with less effort. I hope that my way of teaching will work with you, but we always have to adapt to the needs and personalities of each one. Come and try it!
