Berklee Graduate offers private lessons of Film Scoring, Music Production, Orchestration & Arranging 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.

Great first lesson!!
Very good teacher, explains everything clearly and makes music theory less scary.
Hernan is an exceptional guitarist and a very skillful and a brilliant music teacher. He helped me prepare for my *Berklee College of Music* guitar audition that I have passed easily thanks to all of his tips and work methods. His music theory knowledge is outstanding and to a prominent level. He always explains musical concepts clearly and his workflow is very organized and to the point. I cannot recommend him enough.
Hernan was very well prepared and shared useful knowledge.
Concise, calm and clear articulation. Enthusiastic in explaining the reasoning behind music.

Panagiotis
Guitar Lessons(electric, acoustic,classical), Theory lessons
My name is Panagiotis and I am a professional guitar teacher and player. I have a degree in classical guitar and I have been teaching in music schools and giving individual lessons for the last 12 years. In 2017 I moved to Utrecht to continue my studies in jazz guitar at the Utrecht Conservatory. I teach electric, acoustic, classical guitar and music theory. Besides the basic technique and theory knowledge, which Ι make sure to provide to each of my students , I individually prepare their study line, according to their taste and abilities. My goal is to help my students to find their own musicality and reveal their inner voice by giving them the most appropriate tools. Besides teaching I have two bands with I give lots of concerts with , at several places and festivals (Knus Festival, Stukafest) since 2017.

Fabian
Guitar and Music Theory for Beginners and Intermediates
Guitar playing is a fantastic skill, and is passed down from generation to generation. I have been playing since I was a child, and studied music for 5 years, up to masters level. My classes focus on orienting beginners and intermediate level guitarists in repertoire, theory application, and musicianship. The classes run for 2 hours and are taught in English. First we will assess your current ability and what your goals are, and then we can make a roadmap to get you where you want to be in a reasonable time frame. I usually set one piece of homework each lesson. I like to use Sibelius First (totally free software!) to share score sheets and activities with my students.

Personalised Music Creation Workshops From Multi-Instrumentalist Singer and Improviser
Do you wish to learn writing music from scratch or improve your composition skills without a necessity of music theory knowledge? I'm a multi-instrumentalist singer, songwriter and performer and I offer applied workshops on writing and/or arranging pieces of music using various instruments of your choice, including your computer. I use a 'learning by creating' method, where we focus and go deeper on certain aspects depending on your needs on your music creation process. I like to use personalised methods that matches your desires, rather than following a certain curriculum. The goal is to help you gain or improve awareness on how a piece of music is written and learn various ways to begin and finalise a writing process. During our practices, I will naturally be transferring my knowledge on certain aspects such as: - Rhythm - Form - Dynamics - Texture - Melody making - Singing - Placing words into music/making music around words - Improvisation as a compositional tool - Integration of Ableton Live into creative process During the sessions, we'll either write together from scratch or work on your own material and tackle the issues of constructing a piece of music. Please contact me if interested, then we will have a first video call where we get to meet each other and discuss where you stand and your wishes. This way I can create a personalised program that suits your level and speaks to your area of interest.

Swar
Beginner/Intermediate Guitar Lessons in English (Netherlands) - Learn your favourite songs!
Hi! Im Swar! Ive been a guitar tutor for the past 8 years. Ive taught over 100 students how to play the guitar I myself have played in several bands and also been a part of a band that has opened for famous artists such as God is am astronaut, karnivool, etc. I have a simple funda: practice! Playing the guitar is a physical skill, I aim to give you enough practice to master this. The practice doesnt have to be boring! Every class you learn a little but of theory and a song to compensate for the theory ;) (except for the first class where you aren't allowed to touch the guitar). I personalize the class plan per student based on their learning needs. Minimum ‘boring’ theory if you know you're a hobbyist! And lots of theory for the nerdy music lovers! I do offer discount if you form a group with another student 2 student group - 20% off each 3 student group - 30% off each However, all grouped students must attend the class at the same time! I personally like group classes! Its cheaper and healthy competition pushes you harder to do better! Im looking forward to your responses! See ya! Cheers!

Cango
Classical Guitar methods and techniques, repertoire and basic theory
I have been playing Classical Guitar for 14 years. I have always practiced the greatest repertoire from Ancient Music (Dowland, Sanz, Bach), Modern and Contemporary (Paganini, Tarrega, Villa-Lobos, Brouwer) while experimenting other genres (Blues, Rock, Ragtime, Progressive, Pop) and composing music myself. My goal is to valorise an activity that is both methodical and rigorous as well as creative and entertaining as Music itself.

Mari-Anne
Music lesson piano, keyboard, guitar, ukulele, recorder
I give lessons on different instruments. Fun in playing is very important. Progress too, at what level it doesn't matter. My goal is that you can save yourself independently (by reading notes, or reading without notes by You tube). I also encourage playing together in, for example, a band. You get homework every week to practice. (No hours in a row but almost every day.

Classes can be taught in English, Portuguese or Spanish.

Gema
Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Gabriele
PRIVATE Music Lessons: electric bass, improvisation, composition, music theory.
The class I propose as a private teacher cover the following subjects: -Bass Guitar: we will cover elements such as technique (from basic to advanced), groove, timing, soloing, creating catchy basslines in different genres (Jazz, Pop, Rock, Funk, World Music, etc..) -Improvisation: idiomatic (related to music-genre) and non-idiomatic -Composition and Music theory: study of harmony, scales, melody, creative musical-writing. All these subjects are interconnected in the lesson! N.B. IMPROVISATION, COMPOSITION AND MUSIC THEORY ARE OPEN TO ALL INSTRUMENTALISTS!! The first lesson with a new student is always an opportunity for the student to express what he likes about music. During the first lesson I usually propose my favorite music to the new student, and the the student does the same. The first lesson is the first approach in knowing each other, so that I can tailor a study programme that fits perfectly my student. By developing the just-mentioned study programme I guarantee that practice is linked to pleasure, cuoriosity and discover! Regular practice is also ensured by giving the student exciting and challenging assignments, that at the same time are doable. In this way I guarantee both satisfaction and challenge.
