    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.

    About Me

    Music has always accompanied me since the first steps of my life. I started playing the piano and some years later I discovered the cello. Both became my life partners and part of my daily life. I studied cello and piano at the Conservatory in my hometown, Bilbao (Spain). After finishing, I decided to continue improving my cello playing and I moved to the Netherlands to study my second master's degree at HKU Utrecht Conservatory, which I finished this year. However, I continued improving my piano skills and right now I am an active player and teacher of both instruments.

    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.

    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.

You get homework every week to practice. (No hours in a row but almost every day.

    Piano lessons for all ages and styles? Look no further!
    Looking for educational, versatile and fun piano lessons? Look no further. My name is Áron and I am a 26-year-old performing artist and educator from Hungary. I have been playing the piano for over 18 years and I have taught students of all ages, from beginners to advanced musicians. What can you expect from your piano classes with me? My main goal, apart from teaching the technique, theory and repertoire, is to show students how much joy music can bring to their life and to let them expand their own musical ideas. You will be able to discover the importance of musicality, artistry, the role of music in our life, the attitude of playing, listening, composing and experimenting with new sounds. STRUCTURE BY LEVEL Beginner* I have got my own techniques of teaching kids (lots of colors, shapes, children songs), as well as adult beginners. What’s most important in this stage is to let the student enjoy the sound of the piano, and be satisfied and motivated after a lesson. Together we will work on a certain repertoire that will help you improve your technique and hearing skills, develop your musical knowledge and creativity. Intermediate* With students of this level, we will work more on perfecting the harmony, technique, and transcription. You will learn how to improvise a more challenging repertoire that requires the practice of both technique and music analysis. Advanced* Depending on your goal, I am going to help you develop a certain part of your piano playing. We are going to dive into details of harmony (jazz harmony), improvisational skills, compositional skills, stage skills and more. *Classes can be tailored to your needs and particular areas of interest if needed. I hope you are excited to explore music together! :) Feel free to reach me at if you have any questions.

    Mathilde
    Violin, piano, harpsichord and music theory lessons for all levels and ages
    My name is Mathilde, I am a French violinist, pianist, harpsichordist, producer and a composer. I have graduated from the world's greatest conservatoires/institutions such as the Royal College of Music London, Manhattan School of Music New-York, Brussels Royal Conservatory, and Paris - Sorbonne University (in musicology). I have been performing concerts around the world in the most prestigious concert halls including the Châtelet Theater and Seine Musicale (Paris), the National Opera House (Oman) and La Scala (Milan), as well as many other venues in Europe, US, China, Middle East. During this period of time, I had been playing in the Orchestra Academy of La Scala in Milan for 2 years. With the experiences I gained over the years - including the teaching experience in the Conservatory of Cambrai (France) - I became an expert in teaching violin and keyboards as well as music theory, including writing and reading scores. I have been teaching to the different age groups and different levels of technical backgrounds (beginner or advanced). I can easily adapt myself to the level of each student to create a synchronicity and help them pursue their goals and wishes. I am there to help them as a teacher and a music coach for their musical career. I can combine different practices and teach basic techniques in repertoire that matches the personality of the student (from classical to contemporary, pop, rock and more). Based on the teaching experiences I have, I can consider myself as a teacher with patience, motivating style and an open mind. I have recently moved to Amsterdam, and happy to provide references from my previous students from Paris if requested. Next to my technical teaching skills, I am also actively involving in various musical projects, and I have recently performed for major TV shows in Paris: Le Grand Échiquier (France 2), Variations (France Télévisions, Culturbox), and I am currently busy with making my first album in Amsterdam.
