Piano Lessons Utrecht
Have you always wanted to play piano? Do you want to rediscover your passion for playing or take your skills to a new level? Do you want to learn how to accompany yourself to your favourite songs and improvise? I am Juliana, an Utrecht based pianist and enthusiastic teacher. My goal is to create a fun, individual study path for you that will allow you to express yourself through the music you desire to play.
Deepen the experience
My one-to-one piano lessons are tailored to suit each individual student and intuitively guide you in the direction to reach your full potential. I believe the instrument can be used as a tool to express the music that comes from within. So as well as focusing on the instrument, I also use singing/rhythm games to deepen the experience of learning.
I’ll guide you in a fun imaginative way to be able to express yourselve musically while playing or improvising songs/pieces you enjoy. My lessons give you a solid foundation on the instrument that will help you with future musical adventures and allow the soul to shine using the instrument! Curious? Book a trial lesson!
I teach my piano lessons in my home near the centre of Utrecht, or in the comfort of your own home. The 10-lesson ‘Strippenkaart’ offers maximum flexibility.

All Levels and Ages
My academic and professional musical life has inspired me to approach teaching method in a fun, interactive and productive way. Through a broad knowledge of music styles and teaching approaches, I enjoy helping and hope to inspire students of all ages, levels, and styles. I also teach expats from all around the globe!
Piano Lessons - Beginner
Learn basic fingerings and foundation of the instrument while choosing to play repertoire from easy classical pieces, folk, pop or songs of your choice. Other subjects include reading notes, basic music theory, improvisation, playing by ear, finger exercises and chordal accompaniment. Want to try? Set up a trial lesson!
Piano Lessons - Advanced
For intermediate/advanced students, we typically focus on repertoire that you may suggest. I can help you polish your technique, expand your repertoire and practice of harmony, delve deeper into interpretation of works by great composers, learn different accompaniment styles for songs you like to sing and learn how to improvise and create your own music.
Styles and Genres
Although I am specialised in classical music, I enjoy playing pop and folk music and accompanying myself in singing. I also love using improvisation within a style but also free!
Music has always played an important role in my life. From an early age I have played both piano and violin, performing solo and in ensembles/orchestras while travelling throughout Europe and Asia for competitions and concerts. I grew up in Ireland, studied with Anthony Byrne and Hugh Tinney at the Royal Irish Academy of Music and went on to complete a Bachelors in piano performance at Conservatorium in Amsterdam under the guidance of Frank van de Laar and David Kuyken. All of these musical experiences have shaped me to be a versatile musician.
As well as playing, I have a passion for teaching music. It has brought me so much joy to share this passion and get to see my students grow and develop their joy of music. I studied a Masters program in the Koninklijke Conservatory of the Hague on teaching according to the Kodaly method. This program gave me such a fruitful insight into teaching which I integrate into my lessons and my own practice as a musician.
