Does the Cello moves You?
Starting with cello lessons from scratch because you are in love with the warm and deep sound? Have you played the cello before and want to pick up lessons after a break because you miss it? Bring your cello playing to a higher level and enjoy the friendly atmosphere and personal approach in my lessons.
Cello for Teenagers and Adults
I'm Wouter, all-round cellist and patient and motivating cello teacher in Scheveningen. I like to blend teaching technique and musicianship, while keeping things fun. Sign up for a trial cello lesson in my inspiring and artistic studio.
With easy songs and personalised exercises, playing by ear and easy duets you'll discover the many sides of the cello. Step by step you'll develop the sense for tone quality, rhytm, intonation, bowing technique. You'll learn to read music and some basic music theory.
Lessons may cover duo's, technical studies, playing in treble, bass and tenor key, thumb position, vibrato, articulation, phrasing, bowing, scales, legato, staccato, dynamics. Expand your musicality with challenging etudes, known and unknown concert pieces and the magnificent Bach solo suites. Sign up for a trial lesson.
Orchestra and ensemble
Need some help with orchestra or chamber music parts? I can help you with fingerings and bowings. You'll feel more confident in your next rehearsal!
I started to play the cello when I was 7 years old and the cello still challenges, amuses, irritates and makes me happy every day! I have more than 30 years experience in giving cello lessons to individuals, duo lessons and ensembles, both to adults and teenagers. I regularly perform in chamber music concerts with the French pianist Jean-Baptiste Milon. I am founder and owner of Vivaldi Music Lessons. I toured all over the world performing with well known ensembles as COMBATTIMENTO, LEUPOLD TRIO, HAYDN TRIO and the recently founded Mijnders - Broncano & Milon trio. I also gave several master classes in Buenos Aires, U.S, Colombia, Tunesia, Japan, and Europe. Enjoy a nice CAPPUCCINO or ESPRESSO while taking a lesson!
