From Jazz to Classical: Saxophone and Piano lessons in Amsterdam
Jazz Lessons in Amsterdam. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you love music and you feel the inner urge of learning it, I can help you out. I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical. After years of studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing and singing. Music is like language,so I start by teaching how to connect the voice with the instrument. In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I've been learning music since I was 3 years old and recently I've graduated with a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously, I've studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), Kunst Uni Graz (Graz), Temple University (Philadelphia). I'm a professional performer since 5 years ago and I've performed in several countries around the world.

Singing. Learn voice technique for Classical, Jazz or Pop! Gesang. Chant. Voice.
I am a pianist and lyrical soprano. I have a pedagogical Master Degree in Singing and now I am studying Master Performance at the ZHdK, Zürich. I offer vocal technique and repertoire lessons for any style of music. Regardless of the style, singing is about correct breathing, a relaxed body and lots of expression! I have experience in other fields, such as jazz and musical, and I have already been teaching for a couple of years. Teenagers and adults are wellcome. Don't hesitate asking! :) María

Do you want to learn how to play saxophone in Amsterdam?
Music is the best way of communication in the world, the most international language and an easy way of sharing. Teaching means a lot for me; it allows me to pass on beautiful things I have learnt and at the same time to improve thanks to my students' feedback. Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results. We can work out many different topics together, such as learning tunes, technique, improvising, as well as approaching theory, reading, circular breathing, altissimo register and multiphonics... The lessons usually take place in my studio close by Javaplein in Amsterdam or by my house in Bos en Lommer. I work mornings and evenings as well as in the week end. Saxophone is fun! Contact me and get a first lesson as soon as possible, I am looking forward to meeting you.

Examples of topics covered: - instrument technique: breathing, mouthpiece, sound, fingerings - repertoire blues, jazz, soul, funk, latin, pop, rock, etc ... - music theory: music theory, harmony, scales - improvisation: jazz standards, ear, singing, solos recording I graduated from a DEM jazz EDIM (Cachan, 94) and regularly plays concerts.

Pablo
PROFESSIONAL GUITARIST OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN TEACHING - ONLINE GUITAR COURSES (SKYPE + TRACKS AND EXERCISES PERSONNALI
The Skype online guitar lessons allow you to make a personalized learning in any place that the student thinks comfortable. Thanks to my experience as a teacher, I discovered that online courses are a good option for students of all levels, offering the possibility to be personally followed on Skype plus digital sheets written each course and access to tracks recorded especially for the practice of all day. Method For more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I developed several methods and exercises for teaching guitar and music (composition, improvisation, harmony, etc.) for students of all levels. Over time, I realized that the most important thing is to have the ability to adapt to each student. I think the main thing is that students get to find the motivation to practice regularly with pleasure to progress in this instrument. The most common is the use of songs that the student chooses and take advantage of this to work on more general concepts of music and guitar that are important to gain a solid foundation and without bad habits. For more advanced students learning is determined together to set a personal goal.

Battery: Classes / internships / training / face-to-face and distance coaching
I offer my services (lessons, internships, training, coaching) to drummers of all levels, all musical styles and all geographic areas The first contact consists above all in discussing the desires and the desired axes of progression. For people wishing to opt for the classic format courses: Different packages with sliding scale tariffs are offered. For people wishing to go further: Intensive training / internship with pedagogy and personalized coaching, in order to give a big boost in technique, music theory (optional), but also on other aspects of the modern musician (home studio, stage ...). This is for any motivated and available drummer, at least 17 years old, wishing / wishing to improve or even professionalize, to become intermittent (e) or teacher of drums, to integrate one or more semi-professional or professional groups, to be versatile or to excel in their favorite style (s) ... For people wishing to learn at their own pace, without any scheduling constraints: System of distance learning videos (which can be accompanied by scores), relating specific themes at the request of the pupil (can possibly replace lessons or be complementary to them) For people who have not yet decided to get started on this instrument: Discovery course over several hours or even several sessions, in order to discover the world of drums (For more details on all these formats, contact me) In all cases, I adapt to each student on: - the form: I am flexible and can use alternatives to music theory for those who are resistant to it (for example, by making a video of the summary of what was seen, by re-explaining orally and by re-performing the exercises on the drums)) - the background: I always adapt to the wishes of the student if he knows what he wants The most important thing for me is to make things seemingly complicated -> simple to understand and to execute, while making sure that I direct the student in the direction he wants to take, and that he takes fun to learn The goal is to regularly cover pieces of music in order to put the things learned in a purely musical context. Regardless of the course chosen, I accept all means of payment, as well as CESUs. The latter is very interesting for the employer (yourself) because it will allow him to benefit either from a tax reduction, or from a tax credit if it is not taxable (50% of the amount courses in the year deducted from taxes or credited in taxes the following year)
