Piano, Cello and Grade 5 Theory Lessons for beginners

Whether they are learning the piano or cello for the first time, my students will not only learn the correct techniques to get them going on their instrument, they will also learn general musicianship skills such as listening, sight-reading, aural skills, note-reading and how to perform well and in a confident manner.

I teach using the ABRSM syllabus but can tailor lessons round my students needs and what they want to learn, for example, popular music. I specialize in teaching both beginner adults and children, adult learners are especially welcome.

My overall goal is to make learning an instrument fun and engaging, and for my students to capture the passion of music as well the enjoyment of and benefits of music.

Would be great if you had your own keyboard/piano/cello for online video lessons and lessons where I will travel to you.

About Me

My friends and family sometimes joke that I eat, sleep and breathe music but I definitely think that's true! I come from a very musical family and we all play multiple instruments and sing as well! I started learning the cello when I was 9 years old and taught myself the piano when I was 15 too! My Dad and Grandad introduced me to the music of Beethoven, Sibelius and Stravinsky (just to name a few!) and my love of classical music grew from there! I also wrote my own music and songs from an early age (I can still remember the first tune I wrote!) and that helped me develop into the composer I am today.

I have fond memories of my own cello lessons starting from primary school, all the way up to university; it was during these lessons that the passions for playing music was instilled into me and that is what I want to share with my own students and inspire them to play music!

I am always of the opinion that it is never too late to learn a musical instrument and anyone can be involved in making music, regardless of skill level!

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

Individual Music and singing lessons for children 4-12 years and music Theory. Individuele muziek- en zanglessen met theorie. Online too.
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!

Classical Guitar, Mandolin, Music theory lessons by enthusiastic tutor and performer
Enthusiastic guitar tutor and performer. I started playing classical guitar at the age of 6, and my formal musical education begun at the age of 9 when I started attending a music school in Croatia. After 6 years of primary school I continued studying classical guitar at secondary music school in Varazdin, Croatia. During that period I received training in classical harmony, Counterpoint (polyphony), Solfeggio, Music history and gained plenty experience at orchestral playing and choral singing. I decided to continue my musical education in Manchester where I was studying undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music and currently I am studying at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague. As a performing guitarist, I have successfully participated and won prizes in a number of international competitions in the UK, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Hercegovina. Although my studies are primarily related to classical music, I am comfortable playing and performing music in a range of other styles and genres. I am also experienced with mandolin and Croatian folk instrument called tamburitza.

Professional violinist is giving lessons of violin online! Learn to play violin and enjoy every lesson! 😊
In this violin course you will learn a foundation in learning one of the most rewarding instruments in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Grip the bow, hold the violin, have the perfect hand position and enjoy playing the strings while learning how to read the notes, the violin rhythm and technique. Students will generally learn better if they feel a connection developing with their teacher, whether that’s through humour, showing care about their development, or making sure teacher devote time equally to all students when in a group. You will not regret. 😊

Querflöten-, Keyboard-, Theorie- und Gehörbildungsunterricht auf Deutsch /Englisch /Chinesisch
Schöne Grüße! In den letzten zehn Jahren habe ich es genossen, Musik durch Flöte, Blockflöte, Bratsche, Keyboard, Klavier, Cello und Theorie sowohl in Einzel- als auch in Gruppen zu unterrichten. Als Multiinstrumentalist halte ich es für wichtig, dass die Schüler nicht nur technische Fähigkeiten auf ihren Instrumenten entwickeln, sondern auch kreativ mit Musik umgehen. Neben meinen Bachelor-Leistungen in Auckland und meinen Master-Studiengängen in Deutschland habe ich Pädagogik auch studiert. Ich bin ursprünglich in Taipeh geboren, kenne Kulturen aus verschiedenen Kontinenten und unterrichte gerne auf Englisch, Deutsch und Chinesisch. Sie können gerne mich kontaktieren wenn Sie Interesse haben. Ich freue mich Ihnen helfen zu können.

Improve your classical piano or music theory skills, or prepare yourself for music exams.
I'm a teacher with a master's degree in music, and I have played piano for at least 20 years now. As a musician I work in classical piano and composition. My classes are for anyone who wishes to improve his/her level on this instrument, or to learn it from scratch. I focus on strongly developing musical reading at the same time as piano technique, to achieve an improvement in level quickly and effectively. During the COVID-19 sanitary emergency, I only teach online classes,
