About Me

I am an easy-going person, always considerate of the character and personality of the people around me, especially my students. Having harmonious educational relationships with my students is my goal and to achieve that I am willing to adapt to the student's personalities, as long as they commit to the educational process themselves.

In my teaching method, I combine learning basic pre-existing exercises and creating original ones on the spot, based on the skills and preferences of each student, in order to make it more enjoyable for them. I can teach famous (or not) songs, but I strongly promote the composing of original music, as it is one of the best and most fun ways to learn to play, analyzing, composing and further appreciating and enjoying music.

Apart from teaching, I have been a member of numerous bands in Greece and I have recently released my debut album...

Hernan
Berklee Graduate offers private lessons of Composition, Orchestration, Arranging, Ear Training, Harmony & Counterpoint 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.

Alethea
Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Jessica
Singing/Voice Lessons & Beginner Music Theory Lessons
I teach private singing lessons to children, teenagers, and adults in English (for now) and beginner music theory for all ages. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, I am teaching online only. There is no extra cost to the student and you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to have a fun time! I have 20 years experience as a performer and 10 years of teaching experience and have a passion for sharing music with others through music education. I believe that singing is a joyful expression of each unique voice and person. My teaching philosophy is to nurture students to have a fun and positive relationship with music no matter the level or age. My focus on a classical vocal technique gives the student a clear understanding of vocal technique, including: breathing techniques, pitch control, musicality and the knowledge to explore any genre of song. Basic music theory, rhythm, diction, sight-reading and ear training are also taught to the student to support a well rounded musical experience. I also teaches students how to practice, giving them the tools to feel confident in their own learning process. Absolute beginners are welcome! For online course, piano tracks are provided for you to sing along with during the lesson and we have a lot of fun together.

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.

Flery
Piano (Classical, Jazz, Pop etc.) & music theory lessons for all ages/levels
Learning the Piano can be fun, especially when it is designed to meet your individual needs! Lessons are adapted to each student's preferences, based on their orientation and level, from beginners to advanced students. As a graduate classical pianist and also experienced Jazz musician (currently studying Jazz/Pop Piano in HKU), I can help you work your way around a variety of genres and repertoire in order to achieve your personal goals and express yourself through the art of playing the piano. I can also help singers that want to accompany themselves the most convenient way and also people that would like to use the piano as a tool to write their own music. I use both my own material of sheets and notes that I create specifically for each student, but also several books and a variety of methods. Some basic music theory is usually integrated to the piano lessons I give, in order to have a more complete understanding of the practical concepts but it could also be taught separately.

Emi
Singing - piano - music theory lessons, given in Ede (in English or Dutch)
Hallo! My name's Emi - I'm a British musician living in the Netherlands. I have been incredibly lucky to have had some incredible musical experiences... Some highlights including performing for the BBC/Ronnie Scott's TV Nights/O2 VIP Lounge/support for acts such as JP Cooper, and founding the Limelight Sessions (international monthly music nights, with acts such as Nick Wilson/Joe Buck/Hannah Grace, and many more).... But my biggest passion is teaching. I have 7 years of teaching experience (singing/piano/theory/English language), and a 100% pass rate in students' exams - from classical to pop music. I teach all ages/levels, and will tailor lessons to your own goals and musical visions. If you'd like to know more, or want to set up a taster lesson, then I'd love to hear from you! Hopelijk tot snel, Emi :)

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.
