Classical to Pop

My lessons offer a wide range of styles. Whether you like classical, romatic or pop music, you're welcome to book a trial lesson.

Fun in Music!

It is extremely important to me that the initial love and excitement that comes with starting an instrument is maintained and nourished throughout the lessons.

Violin Classes Beginners

With easy popular and famous classical tunes you'll be learning a good left hand and bowing technique, to read sheet music, a relaxed posture and we'll be playing nice duets! You'll also be playing scales, etudes and exercises, to create a smooth technique.

Violin Lessons Children

Recent studies have shown that the earlier music instruction is begun, the better. Most agree that beginning violin training before the age of seven offers the most definitive results.

Playful Violin Methode

We use playful modern tuition materials, easy popular or classical songs and fun exercises. Step by step your child develops a solid musical basis. Fun in music comes first and every lesson we play together some nice little duets!

Of course you want to learn to play the violin with a good technique and a relaxed posture. It is essential, but it is only the basis... Real music making comes when you can use this basis to express your own interpretation and feelings!

What to expect

With personalised exercises, etudes, scales and your favourite music you'll develop a beautiful tone, staccato, spiccato, legato and vibrato. Depending on your musical preferences you'll be playing classical, baroque, contemporary music, romantic sonatas and concertos or popular music styles.

Besides modern violin and experience in performing pop and folk music, I specialised also in baroque violin and love to share my passion for historical context and baroque music with you.

Genuine enthusiasm!

We wholeheartedly recommend Tomasz Alexander Plusa as a talented violin teacher and practicing musician. During our year abroad, Tomasz masterfully taught our daughter how to improve her technique and approach to playing the violin by sharing his real-world experience and passion for both music in general and this instrument in particular. Tomasz skillfully communicated the importance of discipline in practice without being preachy or condescending. Instead, he inspired improvement through genuine enthusiasm, demonstration, and useful expert tips. Thank you Tomasz and Vivaldi!

Perfect Teacher!

Since I came to the Netherlands in 2017, I started to learn violin with Tomasz. Although I have been playing modern violin for fifteen years, Tomasz is the most special teacher I have ever met, and also the enlightenment teacher of my Baroque violin. I still remember the first lesson we started learning Bach's chaconne, rather than only focusing on technique improvement, he first taught me lots of basic knowledge on baroque music form and specifically in this piece: what is chaconne, what is the basso continuo and melody line in this piece, how to play the chords in a correct and historical way, etc. He also demonstrated on his baroque violin and that open me up a totally new world: a warmer, more active, and full of emotion and vitality voice that I have never heard before. Now I have already switch to baroque violin and started from zero, with the detailed and patient help by Tomasz. Sometimes he combined the baroque violin playing with history background, visualized the music style by painting, or other beautiful metaphors. He is a passionate and perfectionist musician and teacher. He said that playing the violin is like making a sculpture. Only crafted with great care and precision can complete a piece of artwork. All in all, Tomasz's violin lessons have benefited me a lot from both playing technique and musicianship.

Elke les een genot!

Tomasz is een gepassioneerde violist en zijn enthousiasme werkt aanstekelijk. De basis van de lessen is muziek maken, techniek is daarbij helpend en wordt aangeleerd om meer muzikaal te kunnen spelen. Door gebruik te maken van mooie metaforen kan Tomasz je perfect duidelijk maken wat je moet doen. Door zijn vrolijkheid en positieve houding is elke les een genot!

Building the interest in music

Tomasz Aleksander Plusa is introducing our 8-years old son Alek into the world of violin. The lessons are fun as Tomasz not only concentrates on pure technical aspects of playing, but also inspires to discover the beauty of classical music. He masters in addressing to children in order to keep their attention and engagement. We do recommend him as an excellent teacher.
