Whether it's your first piano lesson or if you've been playing for a longtime and are looking to reach a higher level, my lessons offer a relaxed and fun ambiance in which to learn. Having fun is the most important aspect of playing music, and when combined with a bit of practice, results will come naturally! Subjects we will be working on include posture behind the piano, relaxed playing, independence of motor skills and sound development.
Learn to play fluently so that you can play even the hardest pieces andsolos with more freedom, creating the space to develop your own story.
Jazz - Pop - Classical
My name is Rein Godefroy and I'm a jazz pianist and keyboardist. I've been teaching multiple styles of piano including jazz, pop and classical for more than 20 years, to students all ages. In lessons we will work on reading sheet music, reading and playing chord symbols and how to improvise over chord changes.
Your Favorite 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 ears.
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.
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.
Online Piano Lessons
Online piano lessons can be arranged.

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!
