Classical Piano & Music Theory lessons for all levels

The focus of this class is to learn how to play the piano but most important how to make music. Music is a language that expresses our feelings & ideas and connects us with other people but also with ourselves.
Together we will can work on the basic principles and tools to play the piano, setting a healthy technique but also cultivate your personal sense of music. Further on, we can explore new repertoire and unknown composers, refine your playing and learn how to deal with difficulties, discuss about interpretation issues and even work on your performance on stage.
With music theory, we can dive into the alphabet and syntactic of music: the world harmony, rhythm, solfege and analysis.

About Me

For me music education is sacred. A teacher should be willing not only to offer his knowledge but also and educate and teach the student how to learn. It is a challenge to guide the student to find his own voice in music and get ispired for his own path in life. I am happy use all my tools in order to spread the love for music and the joy of learning.
Through my experience in collaborating with amateurs and professionals I have gained the patience and understanding that is essential to identify the needs of each person. I believe that it is crucial to be flexible and able to adapt to the characteristics of a student...but it is equally important to make the educational process fun!

Excellent
Great first class! Update: Great *every* class! :D
Very good, individual approach and friendly atmosphere. Lessons are productive but also fun.
In my first lesson, I found Myrto very knowledgeable about music in general, that is to say she knows the theory behind playing rather than just tell you how to play. I was impressed with remarks on maintaining the right posture and wrist position as these mechanics are important if you want to practice for a long time. She also offered to help me learn any particular pieces that I specifically wanted to play, which I did not expect in my first lesson, so that's another catch.
Myrto is very professional and enthusiastic in her approach. Her personal approach to the lessons leave you with the impression that, to her, this is more than a job. She really loves to impart her music knowledge to others, and she carries that positive energy to the lesson.

Guitar and music theory classes. Online lessons also
I am a brazilian musician graduated in classical guitar, with experience in jazz and brazilian music. Everything from bossa nova, samba, choro and latin music in general is my speciality. Have been teaching for 15 years now, i developed a way of teaching music based on what the student needs to develop his/her potential. It can be more practical and playfull, or theoretical and methodical.

Learn piano and start a beautiful musical journey!
I am studying Bachelor as violinist in Codarts Univerisity of Arts.But I've been playing piano since I am 3 years old and I finished my middle professional musical education of both instruments in Spain, where I also played in some youth orchestras. (That means that I have been playing piano for 18 years) I teach on all levels: kids who want to start playing and adults who want to improve their musical skills (or adults who are just about to start this musical journey!). In my lessons (that can be taught in english, spanish or russian) apart from improving your technical and musical skills, you will also learn some theorical aspects of music. I always do my best to make you a better musician. IMPORTANT: I do not teach at home, I prefer to move to the student's place.

Piano&Music Lessons by Aleksandra (Buenos Aires-London-Rotterdam)
Piano, harmony, music theory, aural training, arrangements and composition dedicated teacher. Vast experience with different ages and levels, preparation for international exams, auditions and competitions. "I am a superior piano professor and I have started teaching in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my home country, 8 years ago. Recently I was living in London, UK, where I worked as a full-time piano teacher in WKMT Piano Institute where I have trained and developed my pedagogic skills working with students from all around the world. This experience allowed me to mentor from professionals to early ages with very diverse backgrounds. These are the kind of experiences worth working for, and that confirm my engagement to my pedagogic aims. Building structures that fight to give a voice to the speechless is one of the values I learnt to care the most as a working woman, and that is the reason why I feel engaged with teaching music. Music is a tool to learn a whole different language and improve intelligence and creativity, no matter which is your background. Music is a way of finding how to express yourself in a specific language, and it is at the same time a fun and fascinating process. As a music teacher, I face a challenge every time I train a student, because learning music and learning piano implies a very personal developement. I continued this project in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where I became a Master of Music in World Music (Tango-Jazz Composition) at CODARTS University. I intend to keep sharing my knowledge and experience with new students."

Jorge Municio
Cello and/or Music Theory lessons (analysis, solfege, harmony)
I am a Spanish Master student at Codarts. Lessons are intended for all levels, I can adapt my teaching to the student needs. My career is basically classical, but I am open to different styles so if you are interested on (for example) pop, jazz or rock we can just focus on what do you want to learn in order to make Theory become more practical.

Celia
Professional pianist, Piano Teacher and Music Therapy student offer music and piano lessons in the Netherlands. Good quality :)
Piano performance & Music therapy Hello! My name is Celia. I’m from Spain and I’m currently studying Music Therapy at the Rotterdam conservatory. I recently become a Music Therapy intern at Florence, The Hague. I obtained my bachelor diploma in piano performance in 2016. I have performed concerts as a soloist, in duet with other pianists and in bigger ensembles/orchestras. Since I moved to the Netherlands, I’m also part of a music trio where we perform pop, jazz, arrangements and compositions from our singer. All these experiences together give me for sure a big capacity of working repertoire and understand the different needs of my students as a teacher! 🙂 As I’m in education as a therapist, I also use all my knowledge in combination with Music Therapy skills with all my students and especially with people who demand a different experience during a music lesson. Music Therapy techniques allow you to play music without any knowledge of theory, so it’s very useful when in the middle of the lesson you need a break or when you just need to connect with yourself, for example. Music Therapy triggers your curiosity 😉 Learn & explore During more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I have worked all kind of people: children, adults, people with disabilities, families… I’m quite flexible and able to adapt my way of teaching to the circumstances! I like to work individually and in groups. Each way has its own advantages! In my lessons I use all methods I could experiment myself among my piano career; I’m also always open for new knowledge, repertoire and ways of working what my students may propose me. It’s fascinating how I never stop learning new repertoire and music styles thanks to my students! I try to offer music in a different way for every student according to their needs, with creativity and a relaxed ambience where the student can learn and explore. Each person has his/her own rhythm… which in my opinion is very important to respect. I also work with music theory, explaining concepts to my students from the pieces we play. I find this way is effective, instructive and much more motivating 🙂 In my lessons, we can work on classical, jazz, pop, arrangements, 4-hands piano music, improvisation and much more! Happiness Music needs a bit of commitment. It’s like a plant: a bit of water every day is much better than a lot of water just one day per week! However, every plant is different, and in the end, the important thing is that you feel happy and motivated during your learning process. This is also important for me, so for sure I always try my best to help my students in that aspect. The enjoyment of music (and everything) makes you learn much faster, don’t you think? Feel free to ask any kind of question! :)

Murat Ali
Piano ( jazz conservatory exam tutoring), Music Composition and Graphic Scores.
I am a master graduated jazz pianist and a master architect. I have a design approach to improvisation, composition and piano technique. As reading music is one of the biggest challenges for beginners of any instrument, I use graphic notation as an easy and fun tool for teaching and composing. I approach music as a form of language and I will do my best to teach you how to hear and understand it, step by step.

Maya
Composition Lesson for children and adults in Amstrdam
Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music. My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real. For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions. I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more. Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.

Belén
Piano lessons. Come and enjoy with this wonderful instrument!
Enjoying learning music is the most important thing for me. Wether you are studying music as a hobbie, or you are preparing your professional career, we will focus on being the most efficient and learning as much as possible, while having a good time. Of course learning music requires discipline and hard work, but it can be done in an interesting and satisfactory way. Flexibility is my main feature: my goal is to give you what you need through a dinamic method that adjusts to your personality and specific way of learning. I offer one-to-one lessons as well as group lessons for people of all ages. Duration of the lesson is flexible and it is also possible to combine the content of the lessons between cello, piano and music theory. We can speak in English, German or Spanish (and little by little more Dutch as I am learning) and the lessons can be booked on the go or set in advance. In all lessons, music theory will be present in a natural and organic way. Contact me if you are interested and, of course, first one is on the house! :)

Alex
Guitar lessons and music theory lessons in Rotterdam
Through his studies in Rotterdam, Alex had the opportunity to learn guitar with teachers from different backgrounds and influences (classical, latin, jazz, flamenco, Turkish, Indian, jazz composition and pop). This led him to study his instrument and investigate music through multiple angles and perspectives, accumulating complementary knowledge to fully understand and synthesize its functioning. After achieving a degree in guitar (performance and pedagogy), he started to devise exercises and systems of learning through his own method, refining it as time went on. He then started to teach what he had learned and developed, first in private classes then through music schools. Alex's priorities through the lessons are development, motivation and interest. It's very important that there is a constructive evolution in the pupil's playing, a constant will to move forward, as well as pieces/songs that inspire him or her. It's important that the pupils learn through an efficient and personal method, but also through their own interest and repertoire (wishlist). In a teaching lesson the focus is put on : - guitar posture, technique and sound - timing and rhythmic feel - strumming and grooves - interpretation - theory and knowledge of music - improvisation - repertoire (on student's wishlist) There are three dimensions to a student's programme : scores, tutorials and coaching. Having a Master's degree in Jazz composition (Rotterdam), Alex designs the scores himself, making arrangements of pieces / songs in an accessible way, along with his method and exercises for guitar technique. The scores are written with a hybrid notation (music notation and tab notation), and with all the information necessary about the right and left hand. After having agreed on the pieces / songs to be worked on, the relevant score is shared and given at the lesson. The teacher goes through it, while he also plays it live to the pupil for even more reach. He then explains what needs to be clarified in order to prepare any homework. Finally, Alex creates a video tutorial about the piece or song that needs to be learned for the next lesson. This gives extra support when practising at home, in order to avoid any doubt and keep motivation up. A report is then created to keep track of what has been done as well as what needs to be worked on, in order to unlock technical requirements and complete a specific repertoire in a constructive and efficient way. Alex teaches in Rotterdam at home or at the pupil's own location ; lessons are in Dutch, English or French, for all ages and levels. The teacher mainly gives live lessons, where he works with his pupils on specific material (technique and repertoire). If for any reason a live lesson can't take place, it is of course possible to follow an online lesson. Lessons last 30 minutes or 45 minutes, weekly or biweekly.

Victoria
Violin lesson and music theory for children and adults.
My name is Victoria. I give violin lessons in Rotterdam. Picking up a new instrument can sometimes be very difficult, so I will help you in this learning process. I can help beginners and advanced violinists to improve. My experience is that playing with a more experienced musician is more fun and benefits the development. As said, the level doesn't matter. I teach children (from 4 years old) and adults. Lessons can be given in Dutch, English or Russian. My program is very flexible and offers space for personal input. Whether you want a specific repertoire or you want to prepare for an audition, I can help you.
