Classical percussion and Drums lessons. Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Timpani, Snare drum and Drums in a lot of musical genres 🥁

I am a classical percussionist and a drummer, with many years of teaching and playing experience. I completed a Bachelor and a Master course in classical percussion in Italy, now I am studying a Master in Jazz & Pop drums at the HKU in Utrecht.

I have an excellent knowledge of musical theory due to my studies and I love teaching because sharing my passion with others is important to me. I have experience teaching many students, between the ages of 5 and 50, since I was 18. I taught in two music schools, led projects in kindergartens and gave percussion instrument lessons in high schools. I trained students as percussionists in two school orchestras. Additionally, I used to write and produce learning materials with my students, to encourage accessible learning.

My main teaching objective is to help students to find their personal way of playing and studying, without forgetting the most important thing; having fun. I understand that music should be fun, and those students not having fun will not get the best results. I usually start my lesson with the basics such as reading music, holding sticks and posture. I evaluate the student’s strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to reflect and evoke healthy self-criticism, to help them improve with a positive attitude.
I always try to inspire my students, and at the same time I am inspired by them, as by playing music together we can learn a lot from each other. Whilst my students have learned a lot from me, likewise, I have learned a lot from my students and this has been very valuable to my development.

I believe I would be an asset to you, because I am a flexible, open minded, experienced teacher.

Experience / Qualifications

Davide (born August 17, 1995) is an Italian drummer and classical percussionist.
His love for music was born when he saw a friend of his playing. He liked it so much that he knew he wanted to be a musician too.
Combining the classical sound research with jazz-influenced improvisational sensibilities and funky-pocket grooves with sophisticated electronic sounds, Davide's drumming has landed him gigs with vastly varied artists.
Davide started playing the drums at the age of 11 after some piano lessons.
A graduate of the “F. Petrarca” Music High School, Davide also obtained a degree and a master in classical percussion at the Convervatory “R. Franci” in Siena. He also studied with some of the best Italian and world drummers like: Keith Carlock, Paul Wertico, Christian Meyer, Alfredo Golino, Roberto Gatto, John B. Arnold, Ellade Bandini, Maxx Furian, Alessandro Paternesi, Ney Rosauro, Gianni Arfacchia and others.
Davide has worked both with classical and modern projects. He has been playing live shows as a drummer since he was fifteen. He has performed with many artists having the opportunity to play different musical genres: from a traditional jazz repertoire to rock music, from avantgarde to funky-soul music, from Italian singer songwriters to the Big Band repertoire.
Davide's drumming has allowed him to play with many differents artists, including Papillon Vintage Swing Band, Völdo, Gianni Bruschi project, Willi Loman Big Band, Pieve Big Band, JOTC young collective, Back on funk, Seme soul band, Ego, The other side of the game, Mocambo quartet, Swinghetto, 80Faber and others.
He has performed with many orchestras, including Orchestra regionale Toscana, Southbank Sinfonia, Oberlin Agimus, Dartmouth Symphony, Orchestra Sinfonica città di Grosseto, Orchestra sinfonica città di Lucca and with some chamber music groups, including Siena percussion quartet, The Mallets, Ensemble nuovo contrappunto and many others with whom he also performed world and nationals premieres in festival like “Orizzonti verticali” in San Gimignano.
He has also taken part in theatrical performaces as a stage musician with Hal Yamanouchi and Enzo Aronica.
With some of these projects he has recorded in studios both audio and video works, including The Garage Studio, Mearevolutionae, Spazio Seme and Centro Giovani Onda D'urto.
In 2013 Davide received a scholarship in Jazz Drum with Christian Meyer at the Tedamis School.
In 2019 he won the first prize with Papillon Vintage Swing Band at the Pescara Swing on the Beach festival.
He has had experiences as a teacher of both drums and classical percussion, in various music schools in Tuscany.
He is currently active as a drummer and as a percussionist in various projects, also as a teacher. He is writing music in order to be able to record his first album as a bandleader.
In addition to this Davide is part of a cultural association that deals with the organization of artistic events. In particular of musical events with the aim of enriching the culture of the small town where he lives.
Thanks to this reality, of which he has been part for many years, Davide has had experiences as a sound engineer and as a stage technician. This experience allowed him to work at the Kilowatt festival in Sansepolcro (AR), one of the most important contemporary theater festivals in Italy.
Davide loves meeting new people who can enrich him culturally. He thinks it is essential to be a musician to confront and play with people who know how to move you.
"The music starts long before the stage".

My name is Mar and I am a 24-year-old pianist (with pedagogical training) who is doing her master degree at the Utrecht Conservatory. I have been working for 10 years as a piano and music teacher (I started very very young, when I was 14 years old, because I always liked teaching): Experience in private lessons and official state music schools, with children from 2 years and adults of all levels, both individually and in groups.

I hope to have the pleasure that we both learn by making music together, do not hesitate to contact me! Flexible timetable and teaching adapted to the student's preferences

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.

Singing lessons in various styles & beginner music theory lessons
Singing lessons for all levels and age. For beginners, together we can discover the range of your voice and build the breathing and singing technique. At the same time we will work on music theory, ear training and how to read a score. For mature singers, we can delve into the singing technique and interpretation and add pieces in your repertoire. The lessons are provided both online and in person and can be held in English or Greek. I also speak some Italian and German. About me I have been playing the piano for 15 years. I have studied Classical Singing in the Municipal Conservatory of Kalamata (Greece) and I have followed a two-year Early Music Programme in Athens Conservatoire. At the same time I studied Music Theory (Harmony) at the Greek National Conservatoire from which I gained my Harmony degree. In addition, I have a Bachelor in Early Childhood Education at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Currently, I am a first year master student at the Utrechts Conservatorium. I have participated in Operas (“Julius Cesar”- 2015 in Athens Concert Hall and “Alcina”-2019 in Odeon of Herodes Atticus) as a member of a vocal ensemble and I have performed as a soloist in many concerts in both student and professional contexts.

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.

Drum lessons in Jazz&Pop Drums, all levels and genres welcome!

During the class, we're going to work towards the things you'd like to achieve, but also the ability to play with others and improvise! Having followed many Alexander Technique programs, I find it very important to develop some basic techniques to avoid injuries during playing and studying, but also share some tips for stage fright and stress while performing!

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.

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.
