Cello Lessons and Music Theory Lessons in English & Polish // from Beginners to Advanced // Zeeheldenkwartier

If you are looking for a fun and productive music lesson in a friendly environment, this is your place.
I would be happy to guide your development from any level. I treat every student as an individual, and I adapt my approach accordingly - whether playing cello is your hobby or whether you have more serious plans with it.

Depending on what you aim for, I'll choose nice pieces/songs or interesting exercises. I always care about leaving my students with necessary tools for practice on their own when I'm not around to guide them.
You'll learn a stable intonation, develop your rhythmical sense, musical interpretation, good posture and apparatus that works for you individually. Together we can go not only for the classical music, but also pop, rock or film music. What you might also enjoy during the lesson is playing together in a duo, or you as a soloist with my accompaniment on piano - so you can experience making music with another person, which is a super fun!

There is many fantastic advantages to learning music, such as growth of your musical taste and artistic sensitivity, and as even science proves - enhancement of your brain capacity.
But learning the cello - the instrument that everyone wants to play ♡ - will truly inspire you by its unique sound.

//Beside my main cello lesson domain, I offer help with Music Theory, Ear Training, Solfege, Music History and Piano//
We can have lessons either at my apartment in Zeeheldenwkartier/Den Haag or at your location within the central area of the Hague.

Extra information

I would advice to rent or buy your own instrument - I can help you to organize that.

About Me

I'm a freelance cellist - beside teaching, I play all kinds of music in different orchestras or ensembles in the Netherlands and Belgium.
I have almost 20 years of experience in playing cello and I come from Poland, where it all started :-)

Education

I completed my Bachelor in Cello Performance at Conservatorium Maastricht.
After that I continued with Master studies at Codarts Rotterdam, while I completed an Erasmus exchange program at Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. I've completed my Master's degree with distinction.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching children and adults from starting and more advanced levels for several years. As a teacher I have an open and inquisitive attitude and I really like to work with people.
Through many years of professional experience I played classical music, but also other kinds like a contemporary, jazz, latin, pop and crossovers. Most importantly, I learned a lot about teaching methods and got valuable ideas from truly inspiring teachers and artists at many international masterclasses. Things that particularly inspired me or which I remember to have helped me a lot, I try to put into teaching others, observe their progress and give them tools for practicing beside the lesson.
I learned a lot from the preparation for performances during contests, at which I've been grateful to receive several prizes. I am also an experienced chamber music and orchestra player. Among performing in the international academic orchestras, I have been a member and a principal cellist of the Netherlands Youth Orchestra.

Carla Peña
Let's play together! - Cello lessons for all levels and ages
My name is Carla Peña and I come from Barcelona. Since I was a child, music has played an important role in my life. I started learning music when I was 4 years old and cello when at the age of 6. I discovered my love for music and that is what I share with my students. I have around 15 pupils of all levels and ages and I teach at my own studio (De Constant Rebecquestraat 3) or at your place! If you are in The Hague area and you want to learn the cello or improve your playing, you are welcome to do lessons with me! FIRST LESSON: The first lesson consists of getting to know each other. This is essential to choose the best teaching approach. All the students are unique, that is why I always choose the method that adapts better to your needs. Then, we elaborate a personal plan, depending on your level, expectations, practice time, and taste. TECHNIQUE: Learning the proper technique of the instrument is very important to avoid injuries and to be able to express ourselves and perform our musical ideas in a successful way. That is why we learn nice songs in different styles, depending on your taste (from classical to jazz, film music, pop, etc.) and we combine it with cello method books with progressive exercises to improve the cello knowledge. In the case of young beginners, we also play cello games during the lesson to make the learning experience dynamic and fun! Children can lose attention and get bored very quickly! Playing together is an essential part of enjoying music. Therefore, the last part of the lesson always consists of playing cello duets and having fun! ABOUT ME: I studied my Bachelor in Conservatori Superior del Liceu in Barcelona, with professor Amparo Lacruz. Then, I decided to continue my studies at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague in the class of Michel Strauss and Jan-Ype Nota. During my studies in The Hague, I did a teaching internship at the Royal Conservatory as a part of their Minor in Music Education. I also taught in several Music Schools during my studies in Spain. Currently, I teach private students in The Hague and I created a cultural center in The Hague called Pandora Studio. I play regularly in two chamber music ensembles: Trio Jakob and Azalaïs Quartet.

Cello classes, musical language and basic level of piano
Classes suitable for all ages, levels and tastes. It is not required to have prior knowledge of music. In my classes I offer you in a pleasant and effective way the mind-body integration with the cello. I will quickly teach you how to solve a passage, find the root of a problem, clarify solfeggio doubts and incorporate it into the cello with a physical feeling of comfort, that you feel comfortable and that you can finally enjoy the music you are able to make :) If you are starting into the cello, all the above is valid, it will be your base for takeoff! And if you are already initiated in the instrument, my classes will serve as reinforcement to be able to incorporate new elements that will facilitate your execution. It is a great pleasure for me to be able to accompany each of my students on the path of learning such a beautiful instrument and I am committed to giving my best every moment. I will try to teach you the way you need, individually for each student, and up to the level you want to reach. Now I'm in Spain and we could teach classes via online but from September I will be able to give classes in The Hague.

Marta
Singing lessons for children, teenagers and adults, music theory lessons
Welcome to my introduction site! My name is Marta and music has been a great love and passion for my entire life. Singing lessons are not only an opportunity to learn singing and something new about music but also an opportunity to express emotions, forget about everyday worries, and have fun! Through music theory lessons you can learn about the structure of music and also develop some very useful music skills such as reading music (sight-singing or sight-reading). All students who have a specific goal in mind, but also all who do not have any specific goal in mind and want to sing or learn theory just for fun, are very welcome! Different options for lessons which I am offering are described below and all of them can be modified and adjusted according to the wishes and needs of the student: SINGING LESSONS FOR CHILDREN (individual or group lessons - maximum 10 students*) Singing lessons for children is basically an integrated method that combines singing with solfeggio, developing basic music theory skills. It consists of playing musical games and singing children's songs and through those developing intonation, musical hearing, musical memory, sense for pulse and rhythm, all with the attention to healthy singing. SINGING LESSONS FOR TEENAGERS AND ADULTS (individual or group lessons - maximum 10 students*) During singing lessons we will be searching for a deeper meaning of the story and different ways of interpretation, with attention to healthy singing technique, pronunciation and style. The lessons consist of breathing exercises, vocal warm up exercises with a specific technical goal and work on the desired repertoire - meaning of the words and story, vocal technique, pronunciation, interpretation and style. My specialization is in classical singing but I don’t mind working on other genres in my classes. SIGHT SINGING LESSONS (individual or group lessons) Intense course where you will be learning how to read music at sight. The lessons consist of sight singing only, beginning from the easiest level and gradually learning how to read more and more difficult music. You will develop skills needed for sight singing as well as a certain way of thinking appropriate for sight singing. (There is no technique of singing or interpretation involved in these lessons.) SOLFEGGIO LESSONS (individual or group lessons, for children from 8 years old, teenagers and adults) In these lessons you will learn how to bring the written music to life (sight singing), how to discover and put on paper the music you hear (musical dictation) and how to build scales, intervals, and chords. This knowledge is needed and examined on every conservatoire and music academy. For some conservatoires and academies this is an obligatory pre-requirement and elimination factor on entrance exams. It is inevitable part of every professional music education. MUSIC THEORY LESSONS (individual lessons) Music theory lessons can include, if desired: solfeggio, harmony, counterpoint, music form, analysis, and/or other music theory related subjects. For each subject we can make a special program, depending on the wishes and needs of the student. COMBINED SOLFEGGIO AND SINGING LESSONS Combined solfeggio and singing lessons are also possible for adults, as separate subjects or integrated with singing lessons. In both cases the duration of each lesson is 90 minutes and the program is discussed and created based on the wishes and needs of the student. (A combination of individual singing lesson and a group solfeggio lesson is also possible.*) AUDITION TRAINING AND PREPARATION FOR EXAMS (individual lessons) Preparation for auditions concerning singing and/or music theory includes preparation for entrance exams, regular exams on conservatories or preparation for ABRSM exams. *Please, contact me for more information about group lessons. Prices per person in group lessons are much lower than prices for individual lessons. If you have any further questions, please, do not hesitate to contact me... I will be happy to answer all your questions!
