Hola! My name is Maria Cristina, I have been playing flute for over 20 years and I am a professional experienced flute teacher in Amsterdam Zeeburg.

Flute Lessons for all Levels

Beginner or picking up the flute after a break? More advanced flutist and seeking ways to take your playing to the next level and learn new repertoire? Looking for a motivating flute teacher for your child?

Children - Teenagers - Adults

I offer instructive and motivating private flute lessons for teenagers and adults. Children learn to play the flute in a playful way and enjoy musical games and easy tunes! Reading sheet music is part of the lessons.

Flute Classes Beginners

Enjoy learning the basics of music, reading notes, easy songs, (classical to pop) posture, embouchure, sound production and a proper breath control in a motivating atmosphere. We play duets for 2 flutes and easy classical and popular tunes and songs.

Flute Lessons more Advanced

My flute lessons will cover every aspect of technique as well as breathing exercises, scales, sight-reading exercises, arpeggios. Develop a perfect legato, staccato, from pianissimo to fortissimo with a bright and warm sound. You will learn more about musical, theoretical and historical backgrounds of your favourite music.

Flute Repertoire

Any music style you want to play is welcome. Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern music, World Music, Pop, Traditional music... No worries, I will guide you to find your own voice. Learning music is fun, and I am sure it will change your life!

Baroque Flute - Traverso

If what moves you is baroque music and the sweet sounds of the baroque flute (Traverso) and you love composers like Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, or Telemann, let's enjoy and learn specific techniques, articulations and ornaments.

Audition or Exam?

Advanced players who want to prepare for an audition or entrance exam are welcome too!

Student Concerts

Over the years, organising student concerts has become a tradition I really look forward to. Once or twice per year, my students invite family members, friends, and colleagues and we all gather to play flute duos, trios, with piano or any other combination. We love sharing what we have all learned so far!  

Lesson Location

I give the flute lessons at my comfortable home studio in Amsterdam Zeeburg. Flute lessons at your own home are possible. Additional costs may be charged.

Online Flute Lessons

I can also teach you online. I have enough material and sound equipment to offer you the best sound quality from home. Just give it a try and you will be surprised!

About me

I am Maria Cristina, a south Spanish freelance flutist based in Amsterdam for over 7 years. I have obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Granada with Javier Castiblanque, and in the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, under the guidance of Vincent Cortvrint for flute and piccolo, Marten Root for historical flutes, and Kersten McCall for modern flute. My love for the historically informed performance made me specialise not only in modern flute, but also in early flutes (concretely flutes from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic period) and historical interpretation.

During this time, I have been fortunate to study in a city and in a conservatory where I have met a broad diversity of people, and where I have learned a huge variety of musical styles, from classical music to contemporary, early music, jazz, and world music. Dedicating my life to music has brought me to different parts of the world and has helped me to connect with people from different cultures and backgrounds, something that has opened my mind in many ways. Meanwhile, I have had the great honor to collaborate with world's top orchestras and ensembles such as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (KCO), Philharmonie Zuid Nederland, Het Nieuw Ensemble, Metropole Orkest, Orkest van het Oosten, Nederlandse Bach Vereniging, Linos Ensemble and Ensemble Resonanz, among others.

Prima fluitdocent!

Als muzikale herintreder heb ik, met het pensioen op overzichtelijke afstand, nu al weer zo'n twee-en-half jaar dwarsfluitles bij Cristina. Vastbesloten om na mijn pensioen niet achter de geraniums te gaan zitten en meer muziek te gaan maken, heb ik op een gegeven moment de knoop doorgehakt om weer les te nemen. Ik dacht dat ik een beetje dwarsfluit kon spelen, had in mijn tienerjaren zo'n zes jaar les gehad, maar was blijven steken bij die jaren. Cristina hielp mij op respectvolle wijze uit de droom. Zij leert mij echt luisteren, kritisch zijn en mijn spel analyseren en tilt het daardoor naar grotere hoogte. Met haar scherpe gehoor en haar analytische aanpak weet zij telkens weer de juiste snaar te raken(!). Ik ervaar haar lessen als bijzonder inspirerend, werp mij iedere keer weer met enthousiasme op het huiswerk voor de nieuwe week en wil nog heel veel van haar leren! Prima lerares: bevlogen, deskundig, sympathiek en met een gezonde dosis humor!

100% recommended!

My 10 years old daughter has already had 3 lessons with Cristina, and she could not be happier! My daughter is a very active child, and Cristina manages to keep her focused for almost an hour. Cristina is patient, funny and a motivating teacher. 100% recommended!

Music is Food for the Soul

"This will be our reply to violence: to make more music intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before''
