Singing/Voice Lessons & Beginner Music Theory Lessons

I teach private singing lessons to children, teenagers, and adults in English (for now) and beginner music theory for all ages. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, I am teaching online only. There is no extra cost to the student and you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to have a fun time!
I have 20 years experience as a performer and 10 years of teaching experience and have a passion for sharing music with others through music education. I believe that singing is a joyful expression of each unique voice and person.
My teaching philosophy is to nurture students to have a fun and positive relationship with music no matter the level or age. My focus on a classical vocal technique gives the student a clear understanding of vocal technique, including: breathing techniques, pitch control, musicality and the knowledge to explore any genre of song. Basic music theory, rhythm, diction, sight-reading and ear training are also taught to the student to support a well rounded musical experience. I also teaches students how to practice, giving them the tools to feel confident in their own learning process. Absolute beginners are welcome!
For online course, piano tracks are provided for you to sing along with during the lesson and we have a lot of fun together.

About Me

Hi! I am Jessica and I am from Canada. I am a classical singer, singing teacher and English language coach. I enjoy working with all levels and ages and my favourite part of teaching is helping someone to realize that they can learn a new skill, be it English or music! I enjoy cycling, reading, exploring the Netherlands, singing with my duo partner in Duo TInuviel, and spending time taking my two kittens for adventures.

Education

I have studied music for 25 years playing violin, cello and singing. I studied at the University of British Columbia, completed my Bachelor Degree in Music and Voice, University of Toronto (both in Canada) and continuously advance my education as a performer and teacher through private lessons, masterclass and courses. I have traveled around Canada and Europe with my studies and performances.

Experience / Qualifications

10 years teaching children, teenagers and adults of all ages music appreciation and singing lessons in several cities across Canada, Berlin (Germany) and in Utrecht (Netherlands). I taught with my private studio as well as an employee with multiple music studios. I also work with my own singing teacher in private lessons on Singing Pedagogy.

Very knowledgeable and fun
Knowing English in the Netherlands is an important skill. Being confident with the grammar, comprehension and diction with English opens doors for you locally and internationally. I offer English lessons that focus on application for all levels and goals. You learn to correctly pronounce North American or Mid-Atlantic English (not-quite British), and have creative and goal specific exercises and lesson plans all tailored to your needs. I work with children and school-aged children, young professionals preparing for interviews, as well as adults wanting to sharpen their skills and take their English to the next level.

Janis
Guitar lessons (Electric, Acoustic) by Music Pedagogy graduate, in Utrecht
My lessons are always designed according to my students' needs, making the experience of learning the guitar productive and fun at the same time! Whether you are into exploring advanced stuff or just like jamming, as a Master's graduate in Musicology with a guitar teaching experience of 10 years, I can help you work your way around your favourite songs and styles and also give you the tools to express yourself through your own songs. We will carve our own path through chords, melodies, harmonies, techniques & composing methods as we head towards achieving a skillset of a versatile modern guitar player.

Flery
Piano (Classical, Jazz, Pop etc.) & music theory lessons for all ages/levels
Learning the Piano can be fun, especially when it is designed to meet your individual needs! Lessons are adapted to each student's preferences, based on their orientation and level, from beginners to advanced students. As a graduate classical pianist and also experienced Jazz musician (currently studying Jazz/Pop Piano in HKU), I can help you work your way around a variety of genres and repertoire in order to achieve your personal goals and express yourself through the art of playing the piano. I can also help singers that want to accompany themselves the most convenient way and also people that would like to use the piano as a tool to write their own music. I use both my own material of sheets and notes that I create specifically for each student, but also several books and a variety of methods. Some basic music theory is usually integrated to the piano lessons I give, in order to have a more complete understanding of the practical concepts but it could also be taught separately.

Evelina
Piano , Music Theory , ORFF lessons (specialized on the classical music)
I am a 25 year old Greek pianist and I have been living in the Netherlands for the last couple of years. I started teaching children and adults individually as well as in groups 8 years ago. According to your preferences we can create a lesson structure which combines technique and theory (chords, scales, harmony) but also repertoire that you enjoy and love. It is really important to be able to maintain your skills but enjoy the music the most as well . I can happily tailor the lessons to suit your skill level and personal taste ! Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions .

The classes are adapted for all levels, from begginers to professionals, and we will treat all the aspects about cello, repertoire and music theory that are necessary to develop and improve your playing. Based on your taste and preferences we will chose a repertoire that suits you the best and we will listen, play and enjoy music together. Hope to see you, Ludovica

Giovanni Battista
Saxophone, jazz saxophone, solfege, jazz harmony and ear training
The lessons are adapted to all the levels, from beginners to professionals, and to all styles considering your interests in the music field. We will treat all the specific aspects regarding the knowledge of the saxophone (technique, breath, articulations...), the music theory ( scales, chords, rhythm exercises, harmony, arranging for other instruments...) and the jazz improvisation ( chords progressions, transcriptions, jazz standards...). However my aim as a teacher is to discover with you the beauty of this art, enjoying, playing and listening to music together. Hope to see you and have fun together! Giovanni

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.

Gema
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.

Liliane
Teaching music, solfege, piano and oriental and western music theories via the Internet and for all ages
Studies have shown that listening to music makes an individual feel happy, helps him regulate his emotions, and helps him relax, and studies have indicated that listening to music he likes or likes causes the brain to release a chemical called dopamine, which has positive effects on mood, and music helps to feel emotions. Strong, such as sadness, fear, and joy, music has the ability to improve mood and human health.[1] Improve verbal and visual skills Several studies have indicated that teaching music at an early age stimulates a child’s brain in several ways that help him improve communication skills, visual skills, and verbal skills. ; One study looked at children aged four to six years who were given musical training in rhythm, voice, and melody.
