Joao is an excellent teacher: very professional, patient and result-oriented. His explanations are always clear and to the point. I enjoyed positive atmosphere during the classes.
Perfect for starters
João is a wonderful, engaging teacher. I am an adult learner approaching her dream of learning to play the piano. João is compassionate and very good at explaining techniques and theory in a way that makes me feel very excited to continue.

Violin for everyone! ABRSM or Trinity are possible
:) Hello! I've studied at the Royal Conservatoire where I followed the “Master in education”. I teach at a studio in the city center or at your place if you wish. I can also do online lessons if you like the idea. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

Gina
Piano 🎹 and music theory 🎼 for every age. Learn how to play the piano easily and quickly!
Have you been dreaming to play the piano? Or, you had when you were a kid but then..life happened? I am here to teach you and show you it is never too late! Music is for everyone, from 4-year olds to 80-year olds, no age limit! We create our lessons together and we make them interesting and fun, not strict and boring. My name is Gina and I started to play the piano at the age of 8 and fell in love with it. I consider myself a musician in a more holistic way than just a pianist. I have experienced also multiple other instruments such as the viola, the tampouras (traditional byzantine instrument), as well as different choirs and orchestras. At the age of 21 I gained my first professional degree in harmony of music from the Conservatory "EHOGENESIS" and one year after in classical piano from the Conservatory of Saint-Dimitris. Meanwhile, I was accepted at "The Royal Conservatory" of The Hague, to continue more advanced piano studies. Now I live, study and teach piano in The Hague. The construction of the lessons is tailored on each student's needs and wishes. I choose pieces and exercises from different books, while guiding the students on practising songs that they like. Every lesson is an opportunity to learn something new with main purpose the musicality and expression. The piano lessons are fun and productive at the same time! You can also listen to some of my piano recordings here ⬇️ https://cutt.ly/2l8vZ3J For the students who want to understand deeper the music, I am also teaching music theory. This is a separate class from the piano, but they combine perfectly together. *Lessons take part online (espesially in these Corona times), but of course also in person. Hope to see you soon!

Every lesson will be a moment of reciprocal exchange of knowledge and ambitions, a new adventure for everyone to learn from each other.

Piano Lessons for Beginners and Amateurs. Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Own Compositions.
I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, currently following my master's studies at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 5 years, I have been teaching students of all levels between 7 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!
