About Me

Teaching has always been a big part of my musical experience and one of the main goals of my own musical education. I've always been focusing on the broadest and most organic way of learning music, gathering knowledge and practice in all the aspects of the musical field:
classical trumpet to have a real control on the instrument, the repertoires and the styles ;
jazz, to deepen the creative process of improvisation and apply it to contemporary music;
piano, bass and percussion to have a better understanding of harmony and rhythm;
an intensive and articulated course of sound engineering to learn the infinite possibilities of digital devices;
an intense live music activity , because that's what music is about.
I've been a private teacher since I'm 17 and I worked hard to develop my teaching skills during my studies. I have solid experience in both one-to-one lesson and group lesson. Ensemble playing has always been my passion: I coached and conducted bands and sections for many years. I also wrote a simple method to learn how to play in a section ( both classical and jazz ).

Education

-Classical trumpet degree (Italy)
-Jazz trumpet bachelor (Conservatorium van Amsterdam)
-Master of Music education (UCL, London)
-Sound engineering course (Italy, Florence)

Experience / Qualifications

I have more than a decade of teaching experience. From a one-to-one lesson to group lessons, lecturing classes and ensemble coaching.

Reviews (1)

My son had his first lesson with Rocco last week, and he loved it. Rocco is kind and encouraging, and he transmitted his love of music through his coaching. Rocco shared a wealth of material for my son to practice. We are happy to be working with him!
I am graduated in classical trumpet, jazz trumpet (at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam) and I have a Master of music education. I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching and I am offering lessons in my private studio in De Pijp. I welcome every age, level and style. For any further information, get in touch with me! One to One Trumpet Lessons - Amsterdam – In love with a solo from Miles or Chet? Want to play the classical concertos or you just want to learn how to jam along? Are you often short of breath while playing? Facing difficulties with reading music? Afraid to play high or low notes? Painful lips? Want to develop your improvisation skills but don't know how to start? Personalised Excersises You definitely need personalised excercises and private lessons! Trumpet teacher Rocco: Music is fun and the trumpet sounds great in many kinds of music, Trumpet Lessons - Beginner to Advanced Whether you are a complete a beginner or an advanced trumpet player, I am more than happy to help you with your trumpet playing. Learn a solid musical basis, breathing technique, tailor made excersises, buzzing, a comfortable and relaxed posture, music theory and lots of fun! Broad Experience – Classical to Pop I have a long and broad experience of live music performances in UK, Netherlands, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, India, Belgium and France. From baroque, symphonic repertoire, chamber music and contemporary music to pop, folk, jazz and funk. Enjoy making Music! It is essential for students to enjoy making music while facing the technical challenges that the instrument naturally presents. That’s why I always face technical problems starting from music. Without enjoyment, learning is much harder. No Instrument yet? I am very happy to you finding the suitable gear for your level and your budget! (trumpets, mouthpieces, bags, etc..) Location and Logistics I normally teach in De Pijp, in the heart of Amsterdam in my own professional studio. Perfectly sound-treated, very easy to reach and full of teaching resources. I have all sorts of material to facilitate and enhance the learning experience. Trumpet Lessons at Your Home I am, however, available for lessons at home within reasonable distance in the Amsterdam area. I can also arrange lessons outside of Amsterdam (conditions apply). I can teach in English, Italian and Spanish. Dutch coming up soon! About Rocco Teaching has always been a big part of my musical experience and one of the main goals of my own musical education. I've always been focusing on the broadest and most organic way of learning music. Thanks to my classical studies, my jazz Bachelor at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master of Music Education, I am able to tailor my lessons to fit the requirements of any student.

I hold a Master of Arts with Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music in London, as well as a Bachelor of Music degree with First Class Honors from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

I am a teacher at the prestigious David Game College, as well as cover teaching in various schools for Camden Music Service.

Learn how to play (alto-) Saxophone (for all ages!)
Saxophone Lessons are extremely fun! The Saxophone is a great and enjoyable instrument to play. It is powerful yet soothing; beautiful sounding and relaxing instrument to enjoy. I recently graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston, moved to London and now want to share my knowledge and passion about saxophone with others!

What will we cover? - Developing playing techniques: embouchure, breath control and tonguing - Learning to play a selection of notes on the saxophone - Studying relevant music theory and reading music for saxophone --Jazz Harmony - learning to listen and count time as you play - Developing practice methods: long notes, scales, studies - A range of repertoire in popular styles - Simple improvisation. What will I achieve? - Demonstrate the ability to play and read a range of pieces for the saxophone - Demonstrate an increase in confidence and ability to improvise short phrases - Understand musical concepts and ideas.

Piano Lessons with the Best Colombian Young Pianist!
Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia. I have a Master's degree from Liszt Ferenc in Budapest, Hungary, and a Master's degree from Columbus State University in the United States. Besides my career as a pianist, I have over 10 years of experience in teaching Piano, music theory, and history for all ages and categories. Even if you are a beginner we can make it! I have a personal method where I combine both classical and commercial repertoire depending on the student’s preferences. I usually play four hands with my students as well and organize at least one concert a year with all my students where they can meet and share their experiences. If you are an enthusiast about piano competitions, we can also work on that together. I will guide and support you through all the steps of the learning experience.

Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Music, violin, viola and musical language classes
I can teach viola classes at all levels, and violin to students up to the sixth of Professional Grade. I can also teach music theory at all levels and support the study of other subjects taught at the conservatory, such as music history, analysis, orchestra, chamber music, etc. I believe that the teacher must be able to adapt a lot to the student, and especially in music I find it very important to understand the sensitivity and difficulties of each student. I consider myself a demanding person, but very empathetic and patient. It is very important to me, apart from all the factors that affect the performance, to emphasize the care of the posture and the tensions of the body to avoid injuries that can be caused by playing the viola or the violin.

Santiago

Learning to play the guitar can be an amazing experience at every stage of the process! My ultimate goal is to help my students to develop their skills and musical understanding by learning and playing music that they like.

My classes are open for anyone who would like to enjoy exploring the universe of music: beginners and advanced, children and adults, you are all welcome to book the first lesson.

Houd je van zingen? Of loop je de hele dag met liedjes in je hoofd? Kom dan op zangles bij Deborah online of in Amstelveen Westwijk. We zingen liedjes uit verschillende landen en tijden. Ook gaan we aan de slag met verschillende ritmes, noten en toonoefeningen. Als je bezig bent met zingen kan je even al het andere loslaten en dat geeft een heerlijk gevoel van ontspanning waardoor je de rest van de dag extra energie hebt. Je lichaam is je instrument bij het zingen. We proberen dat instrument zo mooi mogelijk te laten klinken.. Tijdens de zanglessen zijn we ook bezig met articulatie, de uitspraak van vreemde talen en ook aan de betekenis van en je gevoel bij een bepaald stuk. Natuurlijk bepalen we samen wat voor soort muziek je gaat zingen. Ook maken we samen een ontdekkingsreis naar jouw favoriete muziek. WIE KAN ER LEREN ZINGEN? Iedereen kan leren zingen. Door de zanglessen zal je merken dat het zingen makkelijker wordt. Bovendien is zingen goed voor ontspanning, zowel van lichaam als geest. Zingen is gewoon genieten!
