Paulina van de Pavert Cello Lessons

The Cello moves You!

The deep warm sound of the cello can be so intense and moving. Maybe this is why you're looking for a cello teacher for your child or for yourself? Picking up cello lessons after a break and looking for positive feedback, motivation, challenge and advice?

Children and Adults

I am Paulina van de Pavert, enthusiastic professional cellist and cello teacher. The lessons are for children and adults and take place in my spacious studio on the border of The Hague (Mariahoeve) and Voorburg (Essesteijn). There is also a piano so that I can accompany you.


You'll play nice and beautiful songs and exercises, so that you can quickly and thoroughly master the basics of cello playing. We'll start with reading music notes and practising bowing technique. You'll quickly learn to place your fingers well on the strings.


Have you been playing cello for a longer time and do you want to be able to play fast passages with more ease? Do you want to learn a nice and relaxed vibrato? We can work together on interpretation and prepare your orchestral or chamber parts. Personalised exercises, progressive etudes and concert pieces help you to take your playing to the next level!

Baroque Cello

Playing on gut strings and with a baroque bow gives a very different feeling and sound! Experience what it feels like to play Vivaldi, Bach or Gabrielli on a baroque cello, just like in the time of the masters themselves!

Online Cello Classes

I also offer fun, comprehensive and well structured online courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced players. Book a trial lesson or Buy & Try the 3 lesson Starter's Package!

Home Lessons

Lessons in the comfort of your own home can be discussed. Contact me for a trial lesson!

Classical to Pop!

In a a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere You'll learn a classical basis, but pop songs can also be part of the lessons. We make music together and play duo's! This contributes to your motivation to study. In addition to etudes and recital pieces, increasing in difficulty, you will receive customised exercises.

Suzuki Elements

The cello lessons for young children are playful and pleasant. We play and sing a lot of their favourite songs. I use different teaching materials to combine the traditional and modern approach. I also use elements from the Suzuki method.


To become an all-round musician students need a range of interlocking skills – in performance, technique, notation, and listening and musical perception – as well as knowledge, understanding and creativity. ABRSM exam preparation possible!


Because of my interest in Yoga and Alexander technique, I pay attention to a natural body posture. You can play longer without getting tired and it contributes to a full and warm sound. It really makes a difference and you'll notice it!


Thanks to the flexibility the lesson card offers you can take lessons whenever that suits you best.

About me

Sharing this passion always gives me great satisfaction. You will see that gradually mastering the instrument is fun!
At the age of six I started my music education in Krakow (Poland). Under the guidance of excellent pedagogues, I completed my master's degree in two countries (2011 - Wroclaw, Poland and 2015 - The Hague, the Netherlands). I regularly perform in the Netherlands and abroad (Poland, Italy, France).
During my studies, I developed a lot of interest in pedagogy and completed a three-year course. After my internship as a cello teacher, I developed my own methodology and curriculum. But life doesn’t just consist of playing cello. I spend a lot of time with my son and love traveling, cooking, yoga.

Nothing is easier - or more difficult - than playing the cello - William Pleeth
