Trusted teacher: 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!

Trusted teacher: Hi, I’m Toby, and I’m a professional violin, viola and music theory teacher based in Berlin. As well as regular instrumental teaching and ensemble coaching of all age groups and levels, I’ve led numerous professional workshops, including ‘Music First’ and ‘Music Masters’ workshops in London and was an assistant on the Primary Arpeggione viola course and Springgrove music competition. I teach in English, Russian, French and German and am trained in a variety of methods, including Suzuki, regularly preparing students for music exams at all levels. I am currently a member of the European String Teachers’ Association, and have participated in ESTA conferences across Europe. I also regularly accompany students on the piano, and work on music theory, aural and sight reading skills for exams, including on grades in theory and academic exams across all stages. As a performing musician, I've played as a soloist in venues across Europe and participated in several international competitions, notably receiving the Barbirolli prize at the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition 2019. I was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra in 2018, and a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2014-2015, appearing on BBC Radio 3 broadcasts and a televised BBC Prom, as well as being involved in the NYO outreach programme ‘inspire’ in schools across London, including workshops and interactive performances at the Royal Festival Hall. Testimonials: Tatyana Misirlioglu is a fantastic teacher. He is very reliable as he is consistently organised and punctual. I constantly see progress in my child’s music skills because every lesson Toby delivers is effective and well-structured. I highly recommend him to all who wish to learn or improve on their music skills. Jacques da Rosa Toby is an excellent tutor with top teaching skills..he teaches music theory in a way my 12 year old son understands the lesson easily; Toby is very attentive to my son's needs...

Trusted teacher: - Preparation for auditions for Bachelor level study, Master level study and orchestra audition. - Preparation for graduation exam (Bachelor/Master) - Preparation for national/international competitions - all categories - Working with very talented younger violinists - Working on interpretation of standard violin concert repertoire (concerts with orchestra, virtuoso peaces, sonatas, interpretation and playing of contemporary compositions as well as trio-quartet chamber music literature) - Consultations for young violin-viola teachers Hi everyone, my name is Volodja and I teach violin as "Full Professor" at Music Academy of Ljubljana University: Third-level teaching to Bachelor and Master students. Teaching is my great passion over 40 years and represents an important complement to my artistic activities as an internationally touring violin soloist and chamber musician, for which I have received several international music awards. I am excited to pass on my wealth of teaching and "on the stage" experience and sharing the "violin playing knowledge", that I got it in the past during my regular violin studies with such wonderful teachers and artists as Igor Ozim and members of Amadeus quartet in Cologne, Galina Barinova and Grigori Zhislin in Moscow, Josef Suk and Klaus Maetzl in Vienna, Josip Klima in Zagreb and Franco Gulli (Masterclasses). I am particularly proud of my current and former students who have won several national and international prizes. Many of them already have important positions in various orchestras, chamber music groups as well as professional teaching positions in Europe and USA. I also regularly give violin and chamber music master classes worldwide (Trinity Laban Conservatory in London, Music University in Vienna, Interlocken Art Academy in Michigan, Music Academy in Zagreb, ESTA (European string teachers association) conference 2020 in Porto to name a few). My first responsibility as a teacher is "to take care" of my students and guide them step by step, always having clear short- and long-term goals for them. I have an individual approach towards each of my students. I always try to show my students how to achieve maximum results through appropriate way of practicing and time-management. I teach my students to be independent, organized and responsible. The most important teaching elements, I take care on all levels of teaching process: - To keep in mind that everybody is different and to treat everyone as an individual! - To teach singing on violin, even if playing exercises and scales. - To support individual creativity on all levels - To teach how to practice and how to organize practicing time - time management - Taking care to listen to yourself "objective" and how important it is for all aspects of playing: technique (sound control, intonation, rhythm etc) and musical phrasing with final goal - "interpretation". - To choose the right selection of violin pieces (concerts, sonatas, short pieces etc.) and right exercises according to student/pupil's level - Building a solid violin basic technique and to take care for it on all levels - work on intonation problems and tonal restrictions, bowing solutions etc. - Regular intensive work on scales, "etudes" and other exercises for left and right hand - To take care of synchronization and "timing" of left-right hand. - Dealing with nervousness and finding solutions how to prevent being "too nervous" on the stage I love to give violin lessons for pupils of "Second teaching level" mostly of age 14-19 and "First teaching level - beginners and 1-6 years of playing, but preferable with the agreement of pupil's regular violin teacher or in special cases after previous appointment.

Saxophone, Viola, and Violin lessons from Beginners to Advanced levels. (The Hague)
Estella is a very positive, always happy teacher. Even though my son has been having on-line lessons with her, we can always feel her positive attitude during the lessons. She is very patient, gives lots of important tips and feedback, which has been helping him to guide his learning, improving in every aspect of it. We can see how much she care about the whole learning experience. It’s been very useful to expend his time while at home doing the lessons. He has been practicing more and has been feeling more motivated since he started the lessons with her. We definitely recommend her as a Saxophone teacher!

Violin Lessons with Full Professor at Music University of Ljubljana: 40 years of teaching & performing experience internationally
I've been working with Professor Volodja for some time and I have to admit that I've never felt better while playing and that I have never made much progress in such a short time. The energy that the professor brings to the teaching and his spirit make violin lessons incredibly fun and encourage even more effort and even more persistence . To all those who are interested in studying with Professor Volođa, I warmly recommend that they do so, because this is a man who demonstrates in the right way what zeal and love for music a musician should have.

1:1 English lessons with native English speaker (in English/Russian/French or German) (Berlin)
Toby is an excellent English teacher. I wanted to focus on my pronunciation and accent. He had patiently walked together with me with the various methods. I loved so much how he taught me English. And I started hearing from multiple friends that my English has improved. Significantly! These compliments made our days :) I would be pleased to recommend him.
