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!

Irene
Violin teacher giving violin/music theory lessons in Amsterdam
My violin lessons are shaped in relation to the student's age, goals and interests. I have experience in teaching to children as well as adults and I like the student to have fun while learning such a wonderful thing as playing music. If you are a beginner I'll start with the basic theory, but always in combination with practical approach on the instrument. I'm mostly working with classical music, but I'm also into other genres and I'm very open to help you in any way I can. I can teach in english and in Italian (working on the dutch!) and I can't provide the violin, but I can give some suggestions about where and how to find it. Please contact me if interested!

Marco
Music Production and Theory: Everything you need to know.
My name is Marco, and I am an Italian composer and sound designer working and living in Amsterdam. I studied Classical and Experimental Composition at the Conservatory, and then Communication Sciences and Technologies, and Sound Design at the University. After that, I spent the last 8 years producing music and sounds for advertisement, short movies, tv shows, documentaries, theatre, art installations, and so on. This gave me a broad knowledge of how to write music in every different style, and how to do that fast. This class starts with my experience, but I really want the students to build their own personalized plan, choosing on which of these areas to focus on: -Film Scoring -Sound Design -Music Theory -Arranging for Orchestra -Solfège -Introduction to Piano -Introduction to Music Softwares (DAWs) and Plugins -Electronic Music and Beats Production If you need to take lessons at certain times excluded from my timetable feel free to contact me anyways and let's see what we can arrange. Hope to hear from you soon! Cheers :)

Violin and Viola lessons for children and adults in Amsterdam
Violin & Viola lessons are for anyone who wishes to start playing, continue or rusume studying, for both children and adults. ​I combine various practices which I believe create a greater whole. I teach basic to advance techniques in reprtoire which corresponds with the student's personality and ranges from classical to contemporary, improvisation, world, folk, pop, rock and more. I combine repertoire with improvisation, composition, movement and other an interdicsiplinary manner. My method is personal and about listening to the student wishes and ideas. If you're intrigued, I'd be happy to play, teach and exchange ideas with you! About me - I've graduated BA in Viola from The Jerusalem Academy for Music and Dance and BA and MA in Composition at The Royal Conservatory including an Erasmus semester at MIAM, ITU, Istanbul.

Mariela
Classical & Pop Singing, Music reading and Music History
Hello all! I am a Mexican Musicologist and singer based in Amsterdam. I have been teaching for almost 7 years to different age ranges. //During the Singing lessons you will learn how to breathe and use the 'right' muscles for singing, voice exercises, repertoire and how to improve your music ear, it is basically a relaxing therapy, trust me. We will find together and based on your taste what songs you would like to work on! // The Music Theory lessons are for the ones who want to learn how to read music scores, no matter your level for sure I can keep challenging you with exercises and funny dynamics. Please be patient, to learn music language takes time... //In Music History I specialize in Classical repertoire, so why is Beethoven so good? Why is Mozart so famous around the world? what should you 'listen' when you listen academic music? Adding to this I also compare the music development with other arts and movements, so bring enough paper and pens for this lesson!

José
Learn how to play the Viola/Violin and how to develop your musical skills!
I'm a 24 years old Portuguese violist currently living in Amsterdam. I have studied at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Nobuko Imai and Francien Schatborn for 6 years from 2014 till 2020. As a freelancer I work with numerous orchestras such as: Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Radio Filharmonisch Orkest and Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. I'm also an active chamber music player, amongst others as a member of the Rotterdam Chamber Music Society. In addition to my private teaching experience, I have also done a teaching internship at the Muziekschool in Amstelveen during my studies, which gave me a lot of experience working with all levels of playing. In my lessons I always go first for the student's aim, what suits him/her the best and always serving the music. And of course having fun and pleasure in music making!

Fiachra
Violin and Viola Lessons for all ages and abilities
Hi! I am currently studying viola performance and education at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I also completed a Diploma in Music Education and Performance at the Royal Irish Academy of Music before coming to The Netherlands. I have had lots of experience with professional orchestras in Ireland, and have taught in schools and privately with group lessons and one-to-one. My goal is to help students find their passion and love for music and playing an instrument. I am also very practical in my approach to teaching, and I make things as clear as possible to understand. When teaching young children, I find that using various different games with the instrument can help a lot with their understanding and development. My understanding of the lessons is that every student should come out with the best feeling of wanting to improve their playing, and I always try to motivate every student in whichever way works best for them. I have been teaching violin and viola for many years, and I also teach piano to an intermediate level. For those who would like to improve aspects of their music theory knowledge I am also very happy to discuss some options. The majority of students who start out do so on the violin, and some change to viola some time later. Some students who begin their musical journey on the violin go on to play not only viola but other stringed instruments such as cello and double bass if they are not too happy with the violin, so choosing violin in the beginning will give you the most options!
