Rein Godefroy Piano Lessons in Den Haag

Piano Lessons - Jazz - Pop - Classical

Hi! Welcome to my page! My name is Rein Godefroy and I'm a jazz pianist and keyboardist in The Hague. I've been teaching multiple styles of piano including jazz, pop and classical for more than 20 years, to students all ages.

Beginner to Advanced Piano Lessons

Having fun is the most important aspect of playing music, and when combined with smart and frequent practise, results will come naturally! You'll learn a good posture, scales, chord changes, improvisation, reading music, relaxed playing, independence of motor skills, articulation, dexterity, sound and dynamics.

Solid Basis

Learn to play fluently so that you can play even the hardest pieces and solos with more freedom, creating the space to develop your own story.

Your Favorite Piano Music

I encourage students to study the genre they prefer, and I always adapt lessons to the personal interests and preferences of my students. What kind of music do you listen to? What's your favourite song/artist? Together we will go through the chord structure of different songs, building your repertoire and training your ear.

Accompany yourself on the Piano

Perhaps you are a singer and want to accompany yourself on the piano? It might be also fun to work more on rhythm and dynamics. Often during the lesson I will create drum patterns on the computer so you can play along with the pieces at home.

Songwriting and Piano

Or maybe you compose your own songs? In my lessons I offer the possibility to record and work on the form and structure of a piece, create bass, drums and other instrumental parts, and to work on production. When lessons are finished you will receive an audio file to continue working on your pieces yourself at home.

Jazz is cool!

Al sinds mijn 10e heb ik af en aan heb ik pianoles gehad. Maar met Rein is het zo leuk dat ik al 3 jaar op rij zin heb in de les op maandag. De lessen zijn precies afgestemd op mijn behoeftes. Soms is dat jammen, soms is dat theorie over akkoordenschema's en soms is het eindeloos oefenen om een lekker jazzloopje in de vingers te krijgen. Les op maat met een gezonde dosis humor!
