Panflute Lessons Amsterdam
Hi I'm Mariana Preda, panflute player and panflute teacher in Amsterdam. Are you, like me, also in love with the sound, the music and the enchanting vibrations of the panflute? Are you looking for a teacher for your child or do you want to start with panflute lessons yourself? Ever started in the past and now pick up the flute again? Refine your playing and learn to improvise? Book a trial lesson!
Beginners and Panflute
Beginner lessons offer basic techniques of the instrument such as posture, breathing, articulation, left-right movement and your first wonderful easy tunes!
Panflute Lessons Advanced
As you progress through the panflute lessons, we will be exploring different techniques, rhythms, improvisation and building up repertoire based on your wishes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Any type of music will be possible, from folk music to famous classical pieces, contemporary music and improvisation.
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.
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.

Touched my Soul
"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! 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."
Her performances have ranged from electronic music festivals (UNTOLD Festival in Cluj Napoca,2015-2017), classical/contemporary music (Grachten Festival, Vondelpark Festival, UitmarktFestival, Prix Annelie de Man, Gaudeamus Festival, Romanian Days in De Hoge Veluwe.), to earlymusic and she plays jazz/folk with Cununa Ensemble.
