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.

About Me

My first encounter with music was when I was 3 years old. Between singing, playing and
finding out the keyword to enter my classroom, I've learnt about rhythm, songs and
chords. Back home, among my family, I grew up surrounded by musicians. My mother is
a piano player, my father a drummer, my uncle a guitar player and my grandfather was
a multi-instrumentalist. Music has been part of my life since I can remember. From piano
to drums and later on to sax, I've found my own voice.
Nowadays, under the same spirit and joy that I've experienced when I was little, I try to
teach my students how to find their own. I believe that no matter at what age you start
in order to study music, you need to be patient and find the playfulness of the
instrument. I often improvise a class according to the age and level of a student. I
develop a personalized method focused on the relationship voice – instrument. You
don’t need to know how to sing. The simple act of singing and memorizing a song helps
us to understand our body. Its rhythm, breathe and ability to listen, brings us the right
posture to embrace an instrument. Later on, as the student develops, I provide exercises
for technique building, scales and music theory that will be part of home studying. The
goal is to help the student to achieve a level of improvisation and fulfillment. For that
matter, I find it crucial that the person decides what kind of music they would like to
learn. I am very open minded to all kinds of music and I am always looking forward to
learn and discover new music.

To have an overall idea of how an hour class could look like:

- 10 minutes of warming up and technic (instrumental technic, hand positioning
and air/sound projection);
- 10 min of music theory (theory and sight reading);
- 10 min of ear training (relationship between notes and sounds);
- 25 min of learning a song (transcription and memorize);
- 5 to 10 min of reflection over the class.

Aside from teaching, I’ve performed at festivals and clubs around Europe and the
United States. I've recorded albums as a sideman and during the last 5 years I've been
working on my own project. Lucas Martínez Project started in Amsterdam and so far
held me to the finals of the Keep An Eye Jazz Competition (2018), Semifinal of the
Dutch Jazz Competition (2018), and made me able to win the Incentive Price at the
semifinals of the Keep An Eye Jazz Competition (2017). With this band and together
with the Fresh Sound New Talent Label, I've recorded my upcoming album End of a
Cycle and my previous one Lights & Shadows.

Come and enjoy the perks of becoming a musician.
Hopefully one day you will record your own sound!
