Free introductory lesson
I teach piano in various styles, ranging from pop to jazz.
Depending on what you'd like to learn and your taste in music, we'll make a lesson plan with lots of room for your wishes. Besides that I will guide you in learning the right techniques. I like to focus on interaction and improvisation. Also, playing should be fun!
We will focus on technique, harmony, improvisation and interaction. If you like, we will also take arranging and composition into account.
Piano lessons are effective even if you play the keyboard or intend to do so. Experience teaches us that learning to play the piano has the effect that mastering the keyboard is an easy step to take. It is even better for your technique to start out on the piano!
You will always get a free of charge introductory lesson. Depending on your wishes and level of playing, we will determine if and how to proceed.
Online piano lessons
We can also organise 'virtual' piano lessons via Skype, Whatsapp or a comparable application. This way we can do lessons over distance. An advantage of this approach is that you can follow the lessons at home at your piano. Also, the lessons are slightly cheaper. A disadvantage can be that the lessons are streamed via internet which is dependent on the quality of the connection. A small screen can also be awkward when following al lesson. Nevertheless, experience (garnered during the corona virus outbreak) teaches that online piano lessons is a great alternative!

Preparation for the Conservatory
If it's your ambition to become a professional jazz pianist, we will adjust the lesson programme to accomodate your goal.
I have taught piano at the Conservatory for a couple of years and as of 2019 I'm teaching piano methodology for jazz students, which means that I have 'inside' knowledge of the admission requirements.
If you have such ambitions, I can schedule 1 hour lessons in which we will focus on the admission requirements. Technique, playing and music theory will have to be lifted to the appropriate level. You will receive clear and honest feedback on your progress and your chances of being admitted.
Expectations will be significantly higher regarding your playing ability, diligence, study skills and initiative in order to prepare you for this compelling and engrossing education.
I teach courses in Ableton Live for beginners and advanced users. I use this software a lot during live performances. This is why I am able to give you good practical insights as well as many tips about this DAW.
Ableton Live lessons are structured slightly different compared to piano lessons. Please send me an email to ask for more information.
