Dineke NautaSaxophone LessonsUtrecht Tuinwijk

Enjoy playing the Saxophone!

The saxophone is like the chameleon of musical instruments; you can really play all styles on it! Playing the saxophone goes by itself if you enjoy it. My name is Dineke and I am an Utrecht based saxophonist and saxophone teacher. During the classes I will give you as much inspiration, energy and love for music as possible, so that you can't wait to start practising at home!

All Ages

Childern from the age of 8 can start taking lessons on soprano or alto sax. Teenagers and adults welcome too!

Lesson Location

I address the lessons in a comfortable home studio in Utrecht. Lessons at your home may be arranged if preferred. Let me know!

All Levels

If you come to my lessons as a beginner, you will learn to read notes and we will work step by step on a good basis on the instrument. If you are advanced, I will help you to develop a nice sound and a solid technique. Curious? Sign up for a trial lesson!


After a few lessons you'll be playing your first tunes and after a few months you can start playing together with others. We work from a method, you learn to read notes and play along with CD.

Classical to pop

In love with classical music, jazz or pop? Want to play in a band, form a duo with, for example, a pianist, or become a member of a wind band? Or do you just want to start and discover which style you like? Tell me all about it during a trial lesson!


Have you been playing for some time but can you use some tips about embouchure, posture, articulation or breath support? I can help you with specific problems. We also dive into the repertoire of your choice and work on musicality.

Online Saxophone Lessons

At the moment I also teach lessons via Skype and Zoom. Inquire about the possibilities!


You can take lessons on soprano, alto, tenor or baritone saxophone. Don't have a horn yet? We will look together where you can rent or buy one.

About me

As a child I discovered the love for music in the world of wind bands. I obtained my Bachelor and Master in classical saxophone at the Conservatory of Amsterdam where I studied with Arno Bornkamp. Chamber music is my great passion. As co-founder of the Ebonit Saxophone Quartet and the Dutch Saxophone Octet, I have performed throughout Europe and recorded several CDs.

I have over ten years of experience in teaching saxophone through music schools and music associations. I co-organized saxophone days for amateurs and I gave masterclasses at conservatories in Innsbruck, Manchester and Katowice. In addition to saxophone lessons, I give music courses for children of primary school age.
