About Me

Jim was born and raised in Arnhem, the Netherlands where first fell in love with drumming and percussion at the age of 7 after his father introduced him to latin percussion. After spending his first few years performing in local drum bands he then attended a local conservatoire from age 15 to 19, studying jazz and pop music on the drumset. After graduating he decided to pursue his musical career in London, where he graduated from the British & Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM) with an Honors Degree in Popular Music Performance in 2019.
Jim has studied with inspiring teachers such as Adam Betts (Mr Goldie), JP Bouvet (Best International drummer contest winner 2016), Tim Smart (The book of Mormon, the Specials), James Trood (AlunaGeorge), Justin Brown (Massive Attack), Andrew Mckinney (James Taylor Quartet) and Hans Eijkenaar (The Voice).

Jim has been working as a session drummer in London for over 3 years, performing, touring and recording for multiple artists in prestigious recording studios such as Abbey Road Studios and Dean Street Studios and venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, the Pizza Express Live Jazz Venue, the Hard Rock Cafe and the 02 Academy Islington. In 2019 Jim started his own contemporary jazz project called Creature., where he releases and performs his own original music frequently throughout London.

Jim started teaching children and adults at the age of 16 and developed a true passion in guiding students through their musical journey and create love and respect for the instrument. He strives to find and ignite the musical spark in each individual student. With his personal background, backed-up by his extra degree in Music Pedagogy, Jim has developed an excellent set of knowledge and intuition to work with every type of person.

Maria
German speaking classes for all levels and ages with me. Tailor-made for all levels!
High-effective German-speaking classes on the Internet with a webcam simply from home for everyone who wants to learn quickly and effectively with confidence! I am a great experienced believer in speaking the language right from the start of your language learning journey. Many people have the attitude that first, they must learn all the grammar and huge amounts of vocabulary before they could ever be ready to start to get in a conversation with native speakers. People are often scared of getting into awkward situations where they have no clue how to express what they want to say, leaving them only with blank expressions on their faces. This is completely the wrong mindset and I’m here to help! With my experience in language learning and teaching, I can teach you to speak and write with confidence in German. With conversations, stories, audios, videos, worksheets, flashcards, and speaking together progress is made successfully! My classes are concentrated more on speaking, listening, and understanding. They can be specialized for travel, business, or school. I am looking forward to meeting you!

Zejia (Luna)
Customized Easy and Fun Chinese class (online/offline)
With the certification in teaching, I have been teaching for almost 5 years and my students come from different countries with different backgrounds and from all walks of life. I have taught kids and adults both online and offline. My teaching style is also customized according to the level and goal of the students. I find ways to be creative all the time so the books and video materials I use in my class are always fun! Learning Chinese is not just about enhancing your vocabulary or your skills, improving your accent, nor perfecting your grammar. Learning a certain language is about bridging gaps and breaking barriers. So in my class, you would expect that you are not only going to learn, but at the same time, you are going to have fun-filled moments during the quality time we are gonna spend together. Making friends is one of my best skills and I easily get along well with people. I believe we will learn something from each other. Couldn't wait to know you :) Just send me a request and I am ready to talk more with you at first!

Tom
English lessons with a CELTA-qualified native English speaking teacher / Engelse lessen met een ervaren CELTA-gecertificeerde docent
Are you looking for a qualified native English teacher (British) with extensive teaching and business experience? If so, I would love to help you! I have a very simple teaching philosophy. Every single lesson must be challenging, rewarding, and fun – as the best way to learn is with a smile on your face. I adapt our lessons together to your unique needs and goals, including: • improving your accent and pronunciation; • helping you avoid steenkool English and typical ‘Dunglish’ words; • broadening your vocabulary; and • perfecting your use of tenses. Most important of all, I can help improve your confidence, which is the key to learning any language. A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

Matteo
VOCAL TECHNIQUE FOR ALL TYPES OF MODERN SINGING, POP, ROCK AND JAZZ SINGING LESSONS, VOCAL COACH, VOICE WORK.
Do you want to know the register of your voice? Can you sing the higher notes without hurting your voice? Learn how to do pass marks? Getting to have a powerful but also agile voice? I am a songwriter, pop and jazz singer, and voice teacher with 20 years of music experience. I offer singing lessons at all levels. My courses are addressed on the development of bodily and vocal awareness which helps to perceive and consider our body as a musical instrument. My teaching method is the result of the synthesis of my experience as a singer and the many and diverse study paths followed. The lesson is structured in two parts: the first half devoted to vocal technique, the second half to musical repertoire. The vocal technique that I propose is a basic technique for all types of modern singing: from postural education to the care of breathing, from the use of the abdominal muscles, to the emission of air to the cavities of resonance. From a repertoire perspective, the course will be modeled after the student's needs or interests, with an eye for the right attitude to hold while you sing and you are on a stage. I prefer pop and jazz, but I can work with any other modern genre. If the student wishes, I can give him notions of harmony and reading music. EDUCATION I studied song with Bruno De Franceschi (conductor and composer of contemporary classical music and musical theater). I studied vocal technique with the lyric singer David Sotgiu (pupil of Luciano Pavarotti), with the lyric singer Maria Grazia Pittavini (teacher at the Perugia Conservatory) and with Cinzia Spata (one of the most important Italian jazz vocal coaches). I studied jazz singing at the Perugia Conservatory with Marta Raviglia (one of the most important Italian jazz singing teachers) and privately with Cinzia Spata. I studied lyrical singing with Maria Grazia Pittavini. I studied pop and jazz piano with Manuel Magrini (one of the most talented young Italian jazz pianists), I studied jazz piano with Alessandro Bravo, jazz piano master at the Perugia Conservatory. I attended masterclasses relating to the world of singing and voice held by: Maria Pia De Vito (singer), Alejandro Saorin Martinez (voice craft method), Albert Hera (singer, vocal coach, circle song), Erika Biavati ( singer), Eleonora Bruni (singer), Catharina Kroeger (lyric singer), Amanda Tiffin (South African jazz singer), JD Walter (American jazz singer), Matteo Belli (actor and one of the most important Italian experts in voice search), Franco Fussi (one of the most important speech therapists in Italy), Roberta Mazzocchi (speech therapist). EXPERIENCE / QUALIFICATIONS I have 20 years of experience in music with around 200 concerts between festivals, theaters, clubs and premises, an album of songs, an EP, singles, collaborations with the world of theater, organization of musical events . I lead musical projects in the field of jazz and pop. The passion for singing and song has inevitably brought me closer to the world of education in which I work.

Pablo
Private piano lessons (instrumental practice, music theory, improvisation and composition) MAO (Pro Tools, MPC live, FL Studio)
Professional musician, composer and producer. 10 international experience (Europe, South America, Asia) Piano lessons, computer music, rhythmic initiation (through beatbox and body percussion) to all types of public. Attractive teaching method mixing classic and modern. PIANO LESSON: My learning methods are modern while reinforcing the fundamental notions of rhythm, interpretation and theory which make the difference between amateurs and professionals. My specialty is jazz which also helps develop the creative part and the improvisation of the students. For the youngest we will work on the pleasure of playing music before arriving on classical music theory (essential) but which can quickly disgust a young child. Through new methods such as beatbox, body percussion, we can learn rhythm and independence while having fun. According to the needs of the students I will develop a tailor-made program for each profile because each person is different, that's why I don't believe in only one way to learn music. The easiest way is to come and try! MAO COURSE: Many people are interested in computer music, essential tools for BeatMaking, Production, etc ... Unfortunately in France it is difficult to find serious training at reasonable prices. I myself had to go abroad to learn more about it. I specialize in the following programs: Pro Tools, Akai MPC Live, FL Studio, Ableton Live. Beginner who would like to launch into Beatmaking or confirmed who wants to improve the quality of these productions, I offer you all my secrets in composition and mastering. We begin?

Glenn
Targeted private drum lessons tailored to the student.
Before we start the lessons, a specific goal is first set. This can be anything (improving technique or reading skills, learning to play a particular song, learning to play the drums in a particular style, learning a basics, etc.). When the goals have been determined, a personal route is mapped out for you to achieve them.

Nicoló
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.

Willem Adrianus
Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Accounting, Economy
MBA makes ±90% of his students succeed in Accounting, Economy, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry as well as in English, Dutch, French and German and in other courses of high school and of the first two years of the university. I am specialized in accounting, for which I developed a scheme, which shows its logic. Due to this logic, I achieve in a few weeks to make students succeed exams. I published a book, in Dutch, which shows the development of this scheme in 25 draws. I monitor the performance of students throughout the year. I teach since 1975. I teach also via Skype. Ask my Skype name. I can also use Zoom or Vectera. I ask the students to come to my place, in the center of Hoeilaart and I teach for two hours.

Lise
Clarinet lessons, children or adults (beginner-intermediate)
Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.
