Mariana Preda Panflute lessons in Amsterdam

Panflute Lessons Amsterdam

Hi I'm Mariana Preda. Panflute player and teacher in Amsterdam. I fell in love with the panflute as a child - I fell in love with the sound and the vibrations. All musical instruments produce vibrations: the vibrations are sound!

Touched my Soul

The seemingly simple instrument came alive in a very unique way when I played it: touching my soul and inspiring me to dedicate my career to this instrument, with the dream of showing all the possibilities of my instrument and building a community to carry it into the future.

World Music

The panflute has been an important instrument of world music for centuries, in cultures where music notation was not as important as it is in the west, and oral transmission of music is therefore a large part in the teaching of the instrument.

Learning by Ear

My teaching style balances this 'learning by ear' with more notation-oriented approaches depending on your needs, desires and abilities to equip them for the types and styles of music you wish to play.

Confidence

My style is based on demonstration, involving you in the process of understanding the techniques of the instrument, as well as the reasons behind certain musical styles, in order to achieve confidence and a better interpretation.

Private Lessons

Enjoy personalised learning, combining the existing material that I have, such as panflute methods, pieces and some fun exercises with musical inspiration. At the beginning of each class, we do ear training exercises to stimulate your attention using game-based learning.

Learning Materials

The methods I recommend are 'Complete Pan Flute Book' by Costel Puscoiu and my own methods and repertoire books I wrote to supplement my Master's work.

Beginners

Beginner lessons offer basic techniques of the instrument such as posture, breathing, articulation, left-right movement and your first wonderful easy tunes!

Advanced

As you progress through the panflute lessons, we will be exploring different techniques, rhythms, improvisation and building up repertoire based on your wishes.

Group Lessons - Ensemble

Playing music in an ensemble is a very important step in becoming a better musician and is also fun! Let's enjoy various music styles for panflute ensembles and have group lessons for pieces and technique.

Repertoire

Any type of music will be possible, from folk music to famous classical pieces, contemporary music and improvisation.

Music Theory

When it comes to reading scores and learning music fast, the theoretical part of music plays a huge role. To get a better understanding of the music, the lessons may offer solfege, rhythm and harmony. You will be learning the theoretical part in order to become a better musician, able to analyse, harmonise, improvise and compose.

Teaching Locations

The lessons will be held at my studio in Amsterdam Noord (6 minutes with the metro from Amsterdam Centraal Station) or at your location. I am also offering lessons in Den Haag.

Online Lessons

Online lesssons for beginners, intermediate and advanced players available!

A Wonderful Teacher!

Mariana is a wonderful teacher and makes you feel at ease during lessons while giving you thenecessary confidence and pushing your boundaries to do more and better each time. Her exercises are very clear to execute and between a lesson to the other I can feel already how much I'veimproved. I've been studying music when I was a child so I'm no novice to music theory and reading notes but Mariana helped me in getting back on track. Thank you so much!

Improvement in my playing

I met Mariana during a Panflute competition back in 2018 and I loved the way she performed. I'm a student of her since a year already and I've noticed some great improvement in my playing. At first my technique wasn't that good but with time I gradually improved. She helped me understand what I was doing wrong and gave advices on how to fix my tuning.

In love with the Panflute

I was looking for a Pan Flute teacher online and I found some videos on YouTube where I saw Mariana Preda performing. I sent her an email and then I asked for a first introduction lesson. At that time I had almost no academic knowledge of music but she was able to teach me the basics of theory and solfege. I wanted to learn this instrument simply to impress my work colleagues but I fell in love with it and I'm now learning more.

Great Panflute Teacher!

I've always loved the sound of the pan flute and was looking for someone who would be able to teach me this ancient instrument which is not so popular compared to the other classical instruments. I was amazed by the fact that you can play so many different styles on it and Mariana taught me how to achieve different types of sound and learn the differences between musical genres.
