Flute Lessons Amsterdam
Are you a beginner on the flute and do you want to learn how to get that beautiful flute sound out of your instrument? Or do you have a lot of experience and you want to take your playing to a higher level and be able to make music in your orchestra or ensemble more easily?
All Ages Welcome
My name is Konstantinos Andreou and I am a flutist and flute teacher in Amsterdam and I enjoy giving flute lessons to beginners and advanced students. Children, young people and adults; everyone is welcome !
What can you expect?
My teaching style pays attention to a good posture, breathing technique, tone development (legato, staccato, dynamics), musicality, interpretation and of course personal attention and cosy atmosphere. Curious?
A typical lesson may consist of working through scales, etudes, and repertoire. Incorporating the development of technique, breathing, articulation, embouchure development. I have extensive experience as a performing musician and I am happy to help you with solo repertoire in various styles and of course orchestral and chamber music parts.
Flute Lessons Beginners
Together we prepare an individual program that meets your needs and wishes. During the lessons we go for a relaxed good posture, you’ll learn a good breathing technique to play with beautiful sound. After, we'll begin by learning to repeat melodies, playing them by ear and by copying rhythmic patterns to develop a sense of rhythm and musicality. Along the way you learn to read music notes and simple music theory, so you can quickly play fun songs from sheet music!
Classical to Pop
Want to learn classical, baroque, jazz, or modern avant garde? Let's get started! I have a method for you and I have the background to help guide you through whatever music journey you wish to go on.
My lessons take place in my private flute studio in the center of Amsterdam, right behind the Rijksmuseum, at the metro stop Vijzelgracht. In front of my door. A metro stops there every 5 minutes.
