Tatiana
Playing Flute (dwarsfluit) - Any age, any genre, starting now
My name is Tatiana and I am a flute player and an electronic musician. My passion for music first started when I was young and my parents showed me Brazilian folk music and I felt that I wanted to be able to play some of my favourite songs. I ended up in a classic conservatory and throughout my career I developed myself both as a classical and folk musician. I started to teach when I was 18 and for 6 years I taught in a project similar to the one of El Sistema in Venezuela. There I found how music can take such a social action on a community and develop the feeling of responsibility and friendship. In our lessons I would love tho share this feeling with you and enable you to develop the tools to share your passion with the world. This can come from playing a song, learning how to program or just by finding new ways on how to hear and experience music. This class is open to anyone from any age.

Markus
FLUTE/SAXOPHONE. Jazz/technique/improvisation lessons.
This class includes absolutely everything what the student is interested in terms of jazz and improvised music since the openness of Markus and thanks to the previous experience from CVA in terms of teaching and playing jazz in the Amsterdam Scene. Markus follows a more open-environment learning atmosphere whilst keeping the traditional teaching methods in mind. Technique exercises and information about the improvised music are the 2 pillars of the lesson. Also, its good to mention that the lessons are not what you'd expect from a traditional lesson. We rarely use paper in the lesson and the most important aspect is not the eyes but the ears. Since improvisation doesn't use paper, why would we use it in the lesson?

I offer a holistic method of teaching – believing that music matters and learning it leads to a greater appreciation of our world well beyond the realm of clefs and scales.

Pearl
Flute, Recorder, Theory and Aural tutoring in English/Deutsch/Chinese
Greetings! For the past decade, I have enjoyed teaching music through flute, recorder, viola, piano, cello and theory in both individual and group settings. As a multi-instrumentalist, I believe it is important that the students develop not only technical skills on their instruments, but approach music creatively. On top of teaching, I have studied pedagogy alongside my performance bachelors in Auckland and masters in Germany. Being originally born in Taipei, I am familiar with cultures from different continents, and happily teach in English, German and Chinese. Please feel welcome to contact me any time if you are interested. I will be here to answer any questions :)

Jordi
Learn all the Flute Secrets from the French School
Jordi underviser tværfløjte på begynder- øvet og konservatorieniveau. Hans undervisning er fleksibel og er baseret på Jordis egen erfaring med at skabe musik, og har et udarbejdet undervisningsprogram til alle niveauer, men input fra eleverne er altid velkomne. Jordi mener, at fløjten deler teknik med sangen, og undervisningen vil have fokus på: - Vejrtrækning - Luft-flow - Artikulation - Sound Man blæser ikke i fløjten, men synger. Undervisning i Ableton Live Jordi underviser i Ableton Live for begyndere. I undervisningen indgår bl.a.: - Forståelse af Abletons Interface - Læring af klipning og dets muligheder - Opbyggelse af trommebeats og bassekvenser - Optagelser - Masterering og brug af MIDI-spor - Brug af virtuelle instrumenter og plug-ins - Audio og effekter - Mixing og kompositioner Jordis mangeårige erfaring har gjort ham til en meget tålmodig og fleksibel underviser, og lysten til at lære er vigtigere end det færdige resultat. Dette gør eleverne dedikerede og inspirerede.

Aleksandar
Flute (piccolo) - beginners, intermediate, advanced.
Personal description: I am a professional classical musician, with a master’s degree in flute playing and years of experience playing solo, chamber music and with orchestras internationally. I offer Flute and Music Theory lessons to children and adults of all ages, skill levels (grades 1 through 8 and beyond). Also I offer Piano lessons for beginners (grades 1 and 2). Tutoring experience: I have worked in the National School of Arts “Prof. L. Pipkoff” Sofia, Bulgaria. My class had children of different ages and mastery of the subject. I prepared them for national exams and concert appearances. I’ve also given privet lessons. Tutoring approach: Since every pupil is different, I believe that a good teacher always adjusts his methods to the needs and personality of his student. I strive to provide a structured and clear lesson, while focusing on music as something to be enjoyed. I work with the requirements of the grade system (from grade 1 to grade 8). In the process the child will learn: Instrumental techniques, music literacy, correct breathing and ear training.

Classical flute/ Piccolo flute/ Music Theory/ Solfege
- Are you a professional musician wanting to improve any aspect? - Are you a beginner wanting to pursuit the professional life or just want to have the best hobby in the world? - Are you passionate for music and want to learn to play the flute? - You never tried and don't know how to read music? No problem! I did my bachelor degree in classical flute and a minor in Classical Singing. I have already given masterclasses, played in symphonic orchestras, wind orchestras and chamber music. Attended masterclasses with great flutists as Sophie Cherrier, Emmanuel Pahud, James Galway, Peter Lukas-Graf... The lessons are different for each student and designed according to your own level and your desires - if you are preparing for a flute exam, want to do an audition, just want to improve your technique or you want to play because you always loved the flute! I will assign always something to be prepared for the next lesson like a little piece, a scale, an excerpt... something in accordance on what we are working and that will also challenge you for the next lesson and for the next step of your playing! My goal is to help you play better and make you discover that you can actually do more than what you think! Music is good for everyone and even if you don't want to pursuit a professional career is the best hobby you can have, stimulating entirely your brain! “Music is a therapy. It's a communication far more powerful than words, far more immediate, far more efficient."
