After having Erasmus exchange in Karol Lipinski Academy of Music Wroclaw, Poland she finished Hacettepe University Ankara State Conservatory as top student of the department, as honored top student of the university. She studied her masters in Gordan Nikolic and Goran Gribajcevic’s classes in Codarts University of Arts Rotterdam.

She frequently performs at international festivals playing Classical, Pop, Jazz, and World Music. Amongst others she performs with Tim Kliphuis, Eric Vloeimans, Karsu en Yannick Hiwat.

After the first appointment ...

I feel very lucky to be able to study violin with Çisem. After playing bass for many years I wanted to learn to play the violin. I had planned on taking a couple of lessons to learn the very minimal fundamentals, after which I thought I would to just continue with self study. After the first appointment it was clear that nothing can compare to lessons with a professional player like Çisem, with her talent and experience she can see directly what you need to focus on to achieve your goals and make progress. No matter what issues you may be having she has many alternative exercises for anything that may be blocking your progress.  Basically she teaches you what you need to know when you need to know it, can answer any question you have regarding the instrument, and is a really nice and inspiring person to be around. As of now I don't plan on stopping taking lessons.

Sweet Teacher!

I found Çisem on this website and her happy photo immediately caught my attention. I read a lot of nice reviews on her and I can say.. it's all true. Çisem is a very sweet teacher and takes you by the hand on your violin-journey. I had zero experience in music and the violin and Çisem helped me to learn read notes, intonation, rhythm, bow-movements, left-hand gripping, how to relax and much more. She has a nice repertoire of exercises to learn technique like for example holding the bow and using it. I also really appreciate that she asks whether you want to continue with learning a new thing or want to take your time to figure out a technique or music piece. I am using the book 'Speel Viool' to learn to play violin and Cisem guides me through it. With now and then extra information or exercises, for example watching how conductors work and try to understand their movements.

I always feel at ease!

Çisem is a very patient and understanding teacher! That's my favourite thing about her! She always tries to explain things in a way that Is easy for me to understand which automatically makes it easier for me to learn. She always gives me homework and corrects my posture/playing after which is great for learning. She is very flexible with times as well!
She is a very friendly and good teacher and I always feel at ease, it's fun to learn an instrument with her. She tries to push me to learn more without making it stressful! 10/10 teacher.

Ontspanning en plezier !

Mijn laatste vioolles was 30 jaar geleden en sinds een pauze van een jaar door schouderklachten pak ik het spelen weer voorzichtig op. Ik heb nu 8 lessen van Çisem gehad en ik kan me geen betere docent wensen. Zij werkt doelgericht en kiest haar oefeningen heel precies: de moeilijkheid, de combinaties van oefeningen en het karakter van de oefeningen. De oefeningen brengen ontspanning en plezier in mijn spel en helpen mij revalideren. Ik vertrek daardoor verfrist uit iedere les. Zij geeft mij (zelf)vertrouwen door bij haar hoge verwachtingen tegelijkertijd veel geduld te tonen. Techniek, aandacht en intentie zijn altijd in balans. Çisem is een klantgerichte professional.

Inspiring violin teacher

Çisem Ozkürt is an inspiring violin teacher. She is very experienced and knowledgeable and pays attention to all aspects of playing the violin, varying from intonation to posture. Her patience and serene presence combined with an understanding personality, make every lesson a joyful event. I appreciate how she customizes her teaching to the wishes of her students. She gives clear directions and good exercises to practice at home. Above all, she taught me the very valuable lesson, that in order to improve playing the violin, one must not just practice more but one must principally learn how to relax better. Since then, I enjoyed playing the violin even more than I ever did before.
