Reviews (4)

Erten is quite patient and full of understanding regarding the problems that beginners face with the violin. I received a lot of guidance for setting my posture and wrist movements right. One can follow the classes even with no prior knowledge of music at all.
As a beginner, I've had a great time with my violin teacher, Mr Deniz. He is flexible and pleasant. After his lessons, I feel inspired to practise more.
patient and cheerful
Deniz is a very good teacher. I really enjoyed my first Piano lesson and look forward to the next lesson!
Learn Music Theory and Harmony from a professional musician and concert artist. From reading scores to understanding harmonic chord progressions, form analysis and tonalities and so much more. Can be bundled with your instrument lesson (violin or piano).
I was born to a musician family and I am a musician who is professionally trained on the piano for 12 years. I can teach from the beginning to the intermediate level of piano playing. But most importantly, I will try to make a musician out of you. I have so many stage experiences as a soloist and in an orchestra in different cities and countries. Within my education, I had years of Music Theory lessons and I can teach and explain the theoretical part of music as well.

Yammy
Private Music Lessons for Piano, Violin and Erhu (Chinese violin)
As a Cambridge University graduate in the Faculty of Education, I am delighted to have settled down in the Netherlands since September 2019. I started piano at the age of 5, and music has been an important part of my life ever since. Classically trained as a violinist, I picked up another instrument named Erhu (Chinese violin) and became a professional performer. I am experienced in teaching both children and adults, from different cultural backgrounds. Also, I have been actively involved in both Western and Chinese orchestra since high school. Thanks to my years of experience in being an orchestra member and soloist, I am also familiar with orchestral music. As a humble music therapist, I am passionate about music and believe in the power of music. I trust that music is in everybody and I respect every student's individuality and thus tailor my teaching methods to develop my students' full potential. I started teaching in 2009 and most students put their trust in me when they first decided to learn an instrument. I also enjoy exploring the world of music with students with learning disabilities. I am proud to say, my students, aged from 5 to 60, are enthusiastic in playing the instrument they have chosen and keen to improve their skills following my advice. I adopt a flexible approach in teaching - I believe every student is unique and my job is to develop the strengths and improve the weaknesses. I put a lot of emphasis on a solid foundation in my teaching. For young children, I tend to use a more interactive approach to explain complicated music theories, yet strict in the fundamentals such as posture and rhythm. For adults, I am always happy to discuss with them my lesson plan and choose the best exercises and songs that suit their music interests and needs. For my students who would like to take exams, I am happy to tailor the lessons based on their progress. I believe in the quality of learning and understanding rather than the number of pieces that they learn. Many beginners and their parents have put their trusts in me and achieved distinction in their first ABRSM exam. I am fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, and a native speaker of Cantonese Chinese. I am happy to travel and travel costs will be added on the top of the standard tuition fee. *Proof of qualifications avaliable upon requests.
