Christian Doepke, Amsterdam-based all-round pianist and piano teacher: Are you just getting started playing piano, or do you already have a lot of experience? The great thing of playing piano is, that it enables you to totally break free from everyday life and immerse yourself in music! You are wrapped up in your own world, where you are actively creating something great and beautiful!

Piano Basics - Beginners
As a beginner, you will learn the basics of playing piano through reading notes, effective exercises, improvisation, working out songs on YouTube and playing by ear. I have developed my own teaching style and use a number of piano methods.
Play the Songs You Love
In addition to tunes from a piano book, you will learn the chords and melodies of your favorite pop songs or easy jazz standards. You will also learn to play freely and become increasingly skilled in playing without sheet music, with the help of simple technical exercises. We will get started with improvisation!
Piano Lessons for Children with ADHD and/ or Dyslexia
You will primarily work in an auditive and visual manner, making it easier to follow the lessons. At the end of each lesson, you can film exercises and will receive the video footage and sheet music through e-mail. If you experience problems with sheet music, you can way watch the videos and memorise songs while listening.
In my lessons for children, fun in playing comes first. It is vital, that they enjoy attending my classes, have fun playing and practicing at home and are eager to learn new songs.
Theory, Arranging, Solfeggio
In addition to piano lessons, I also offer other disciplines, such as solfeggio, rhythm, harmony, composition and arranging. Recommended for students who want to prepare for jazz / pop music entrance exams of conservatories.
