Individual Music and singing lessons for children 4-12 years and music Theory. Individuele muziek- en zanglessen met theorie. Online too.

Houd je van zingen? Of loop je de hele dag met liedjes in je hoofd? Kom dan op zangles bij Deborah online of op zaterdagmiddag in IJmuiden of in Amsterdam op vrijdagmiddag. We zingen liedjes uit verschillende landen en tijden. Ook gaan we aan de slag met verschillende ritmes, noten en toonoefeningen.

Als je bezig bent met zingen kan je even al het andere loslaten en dat geeft een heerlijk gevoel van ontspanning waardoor je de rest van de dag extra energie hebt.

Je lichaam is je instrument bij het zingen. We proberen dat instrument zo mooi mogelijk te laten klinken..

Tijdens de zanglessen zijn we ook bezig met articulatie, de uitspraak van vreemde talen en ook aan de betekenis van en je gevoel bij een bepaald stuk. Natuurlijk bepalen we samen wat voor soort muziek je gaat zingen. Ook maken we samen een ontdekkingsreis naar jouw favoriete muziek.


WIE KAN ER LEREN ZINGEN?
Iedereen kan leren zingen. Door de zanglessen zal je merken dat het zingen makkelijker wordt. Bovendien is zingen goed voor ontspanning, zowel van lichaam als geest. Zingen is gewoon genieten!

Deborah is a vey nice teacher, friendly and gentle.I hope my class is longer so I can learn and enjoy more!
Deborah is a great teacher and she engaged my daughter staright away. She is looking forward to her second lesson.
Singing gives relaxation; the exercises used in singing technique such as low breathing and relaxation exercises are also pleasant and useful when you are pregnant. Furthermore, research has shown that the unborn child already responds to music. For example, music that is often repeated during pregnancy provokes a calming response when the baby is born. Also the voice of the mother is recognized immediately after birth. Deborah would therefore like to start with a singing group for pregnant women. Besides the exercises, we sing canons, polyphonic music and lullabies in different languages ​​and styles.
Even at this young age, children enjoy singing, dancing and making music together with small rhythm instruments. In this way, you playfully stimulate the development of your (grand) child. And do not think that the children have to sit on their lap all the time! We also enjoy moving and dancing.
Music and movement go hand in hand for young children. In this course, toddlers are busy with music and movement. Simple instruments such as drums and rhythm sticks belong here, but also balls and scarves, for example. There is an appeal to the imagination, different types of music are listened to, and many are sung and danced. This course is actually the logical continuation of Music on lap lessons, but without parents. For
During this course the children playfully learn the basics of music making, such as rhythm, pitch and musical notation. The following teaching methods are used: singing, tapping rhythm, listening to music and playing chimes, ocarina (a small wind instrument), recorder and keyboard. In this course children can learn basics of music, such as rhythm, notes, listening and playing using different kind of (small) instruments and keyboard / piano.
Your body is your instrument when singing. We try to make that instrument sound as beautiful as possible by working on sound formation. This allows the vocal cords to move more freely, so that you are less tired when singing. Your voice becomes fuller and you can sing higher and lower tones. During the singing lessons we are also engaged in articulation, the pronunciation of foreign languages ​​and also the meaning and feeling of a particular piece. Of course you decide for yourself what kind of music you are going to sing. Whether you only sing in the shower or that you are in a choir, for example, and you run into certain difficulties in general or in a particular piece? Then feel free to take your choral part to class and then we will see how we can make it easier for you. We work on repertoire that you love. We can also make a voyage of discovery together to your favorite music. WHO CAN SONG LEARNING? Everyone can learn to sing. Through the singing lessons you will notice that singing becomes easier. Moreover, singing is good for relaxation, both of body and mind. Singing is just enjoying! YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT As a singer or singer you already have one advantage over instrumentalists: you do not have to buy an (expensive) instrument. You always have your instrument with you, but ... you have to take good care of your instrument!
Do you like to sing? Or do you have songs in your head all day long? Then come and sing together at PLONS Music online or on Saturday afternoon in IJmuiden or in Amsterdam on Friday afternoon. We sing songs from different countries and times. We will also work with different rhythms, notes and tone exercises. For that you have to buy the book 'Juggling' by S. van Lieshout. Also for Adults: Do you like to sing? Or do you have music in your head all day long? Then come and sing together at SPLON MUSIC! on Friday in Amsterdam or on Saturday afternoon in IJmuiden. We sing different types of music, from opera to musical, and from pop to world music. We also work on voice formation and harmony. The teacher / conductor is also fond of singing, so together we will make something beautiful out of it! The price per hour is per person.

Charlie P.
Introduction to the art of music. Children and adults.
Graduated in medicine and finishing my studies of electric bass performance at the Utrecht Conservatory. Currently working as a music producer, bass player and songwriter. Seven years of experience as a music teacher teaching electric bass technique, modern ensembles and music theory. My interest is to approach music from its most creative perspective. The course is based on practical projects. Students are guided to create musical, audio-visual and even visual pieces using their qualities and interests. For this, students need to develop qualities strictly linked to knowledge of music or the instrument. In this way, the learning process becomes a more fun, stimulating and enriching process for the student. For those young students who wish to learn music and perhaps later pursue higher studies in music, I offer a preparation course for the higher exams that includes the necessary training in harmony, music theory and the performance of the electric bass. In this case, it is mandatory that the student is willing to commit and has the time necessary for preparation.

Andrés Hühner
Online and In-Person Electric Bass and Music Theory Lessons
The classes are specialized in Electric Bass and Musical Theory lessons, but I also teach basic guitar, singing and musical production. I use Ableton 10 for my lessons, alongside with different book methods that I customize according to your necessities. I keep a personal folder of all my students to check the progress and I assign homework after every lesson.

Natalia
Piano lessons , music theory and/or history of music as additional lessons
I have been a piano teacher for over 25 years. This is something I am very passionate about and truly enjoy. My goal is to combine the students' interests with a program that I as a teacher find nessesary to improve and develop technique and skills. Personally, I have also taught piano to my 5 kids, so I understand how important it is that piano lessons are interesting and exciting. I organize small concerts a couple of times per year with all my students so they have the change to play piano in public and share their success. For many years I had my own music theater studio for expat kids in Moscow. Now I moved to Amsterdam and am looking forward to continue with giving piano lessons. I have a grand piano and prefer giving lessons at my home. Although, I am flexible and can come to your house too.

Danai
Private piano lessons, music theory, solfège, composition
I am teaching piano, theory/harmony, ear-training & composition. I graduated from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam as a classical/contemporary composer. My approach to teaching piano is highly influenced by my composition studies, both in stylistic diversity and in pedagogical methods. I am very open to the stylistic choices of the students and adapt the lesson to fit their particular needs or interests. When it comes to piano teaching, i find it important to teach in an overall way, one that incorporates ear-training but also theory together with piano playing. This way i find that the lesson becomes much more stimulating, and it also becomes much more easy to learn. I have experience teaching adults but also young kids between 4-10 years of age. I believe it is never late to start learning music and that learning to make music is (& should) firstly be a fun and then a challenging adventure.

Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary.

SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hIT or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you already play the guitar or piano, you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antennas are always open :-) and for some it is a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to share my knowledge about how to write a song with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny
