Alexandros
Piano, Music Theory and Ear Training lessons for all ages/levels
Music lessons can be productive and fun if planned and organized according to the needs and desires of every different student. Upon the first meeting with each student it is important to discuss the long term goals in order to have a clear view and plan the following lessons accordingly. Based on the student's background, lessons can be adjusted to different levels, music genres and repertoire. The ideal lesson would always include practical, as well as, theoretical knowledge in order to boost your skills but also be able to express yourself through it.

Enrico
•Learn how to play saxophone, improvise on your favorite song and bases of Music Armony
I'm 24 years old and I joined the world of Music when I was 6. I got the degree in Cassical Saxophone 2 years ago in the Conservatory of Music of Mantova (Italy) and now I'm studying Jazz&Pop in the Conservatory of Utrecht (Netherlands). I've played many concert in Italy and Europe with many different formations: classic Orchestra and Ensemble (Ensemble of saxophone of Mantova), quartet of saxophones (Sax Fever), many different bands, Big Band (Dixiebell Orchestra of Garda, Utrecht BigBand)... •THE GOAL of my lessons is make people enjoy this beautiful form of art. Like when you sing playing saxophone required a total connection between our body and our mind with the horn. As our clarinet friends always remind us, Saxophone is not one of the most difficult wind intrument but an improper embrasure or a wrong breathing can create a wall between our musical ideas and the instrument. •In my lessons I want to work as first on the sound. If the sound is good Saxophone has the power to enchant audience with just one note. Playing long note is a good exercise in this sense, and more natural and relaxed is the embrasure and the body, more easily will be making a good sound. •We'll improve the knowledge of Music Armony working directly on the songs that you love. We will start by transcribe them by ear and then we'll go deeper into the armony and chords. The aim is start to improvise on them and create your own repertoire. •On the other side we will work on reading music. This skill has a primary importance if you want to join all kind of band in the city. •If you are a student that want to enter in the conservatory, classic or jazz, I have a lot of experience in these kind of auditions, so we can focus our practise toward this porpuse. •Music make the mind free and EVERYBODY can play, it's just a matter of practise and listening. If you think that Saxophone is your instrument What are you waiting for!?!? Let's play some Music togheter;)

Hernan
Berklee College of Music Graduate offers private lessons of Guitar, Harmony & Improvisation in Utrecht
The way I teach actually depends entirely on the student. The way I explain the concepts, plan and structure the lessons and approach each subject all depends on whether the student is a beginner, intermediate or advanced, and whether he or she has some experience on the subject. Each student has different needs and different abilities. It's just a matter of getting to know the student, in order to identify both the weaknesses and strengths on which to work.

Alberto
Trumpet lessons in Utrecht with Alberto. Many genres to EXPLORE!
Playing the trumpet is very exciting! Are you looking to start learning the trumpet? Perhaps you already play for some years but want to improve your technique, breathing skills, or learn a new genre? I am Alberto, and I will help you achieve your musical goals with a tailor-made program. My approach is to find suitable music for your technical and expressive level and work specifically on the challenges that it represents. Music is for everyone! Kids and adults Perhaps you want to surprise your couple playing a bossa-nova. Or maybe you want to become the next solo trumpet at the Concertgebouw Orchestra. Everyone has different goals when playing the trumpet, it is my job to help you achieve them. If you don't have clear objectives yet, I will be guiding you and exploring the possibilities of trumpet playing with you. Also, especially for kids, I can help you find a nice pTrumpet. They are lightweight plastic trumpets made with great quality and available in different colours! Good technique, and a lot of fun The most important lesson I have learned in my career is that making good music is only possible when you enjoy the process. Of course, good technical skills are crucial but studying exercises that you find boring is not the best way up to proficiency. Instead, finding your unique best approach to improve your skills will get you to the moon! For improving your tempo awareness, would you practice with a metronome or would you rather use a drumbeat sample? Your health is important! Body awareness and breathing techniques Not only wind players benefit from doing sport, acquiring good posture habits, and being aware of their breath. It helps everyone in every single aspect of their lives. A good breathing technique will let you play easily, run for a longer period of time, or sleep better at night. On the other hand, body posture awareness helps with productivity and saves money on the fysio. Life hacks that you cannot miss! Improvisation and open-mindedness That very feeling of creating art on the spot. Only a few experiences can relate to it. When we explore and create, our flow state gets triggered. We are fully immersed in the activity and the world surrounding us vanishes. If you like, we will go on a journey discovering new emotions, colours, sounds, harmonies, textures, styles, genres. And improvising on them. Let's get creative! Technology in music. Recording and producing Let's face it, we are in the 21st century and the possibilities of technology are endless in the audiovisual field. Recording for auditions, producing and releasing your first single, live looping, use of effects... You can learn all that with me. Are you curious? Book your lesson now! Ok but, how will my lessons look like? Breathing practice is one of the best ways to start warming up. It will take the first 5 minutes of your lesson and your body will be prepared to start playing. Then, we would go into working on your specific goals. Perhaps, we are practicing music that demands improvement on the higher register, maybe we are working out different scales for improvisation, or it might be the case that you want to discover a new genre and go deep into it. Reading music, ear training, phrasing, music theory, buzzing and embouchure position, articulations (legato, staccato, accents), dynamics... These are only an indication of what we might work on. The final minutes of your lesson will be the moment to relax. We can get creative, play some tunes together, improvise, or even talk about a specific topic like musicality, art, creativity, technique, theory or the music industry for instance. Group lessons and ensembles Making music alone is fun, but playing with people brings it to the next level! If you like the idea, I will bring you together with other fellow students for technique workshops, jam sessions, duo with piano, or whatever other activity we might find interesting for you. When and where I offer flexibility in my schedule so your trumpet lessons fit into your agenda. I can come to your place, or perhaps you prefer visiting my teaching room in Utrecht. I will have some coffee or tea waiting for you. Online trumpet classes Online has become a new trend. I will help you set up your equipment and focus on what is important, music. Book a lesson now! Alberto, the eclectic brass player based in Utrecht I am a brass performer and teacher that has performed in classical and modern music ensembles for more than 15 years. During this time, I attended innumerable masterclasses and had great fun in various professional experiences such as performing at Tomorrowland, an avant-garde music festival in Malta, or the great symphonic masterpieces with symphonic orchestras in Spain and the Netherlands. I hold a bachelor's and a master's degree in music performance and a master's degree in music education during my official studies in Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands. Nowadays, you can still find me teaching brass in the Utrecht area, composing and producing my own music at home, playing tuba with a symphonic orchestra, trombone in a reggae band, or improvising trumpet over a techno track.
