Berta Mariana Sequeira Violin Lessons in Utrecht

Violin Lessons Utrecht

Are you fascinated by the beautiful sound of the violin, wondering if you could play all those beautiful melodies? Looking for motivation and inspiration to awake the artist in you? I am Berta Mariana, methodical, patient and enthusiastic Utrecht based violin teacher. I love to guide you in this adventure! 

Why Music for Children?

If all parents would know how much music lessons can do for their child! How learning music can improve their skills in math, memorisation, and listening. How playing an instrument also helps young brains to develop, motor skills and coordination.

Private Violin Lessons

My one-on-one lessons for children are fun and wel structured. They learn to read music, basic music theory, and to play their first easy songs and duo pieces!

Violin and Yoga!

I'm a Yoga and Alexander Technique lover and I believe that healthy posture and body awareness contribute enormously to become a good violin player. I will help you to develop a comfortable and natural posture, to allow you to improve your general body posture, violin playing and well being.


You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn to read music and pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with me!


Based upon your own wishes and goals I will elaborate a plan for the lessons. We will be focusing on learning and developing your playing  in a calm, methodic and healthy way, making you feel each day more comfortable and confident with it! We will focus on advanced technical aspects, sound, vibrato, repertoire and interpretation.

Orchestra - Ensemble

Playing together is very important to develop your sound, intonation and rhythmic skills. Enjoy your creative and artistic growth! Besides having a wonderful time sharing beautiful music together, this will give you a lot of knowledge, in case someday you would like to join an amateur orchestra or an ensemble, you will be ready!

Excellent Violin Teacher

During the time that Berta was a violin teacher for our son Henrique, she always presented herself as an excellent professional, always proactive and attentive to his needs.  In addition to undeniable musical and pedagogical qualities, Berta was able to cultivate in Henrique, who was just six years old at the time, great interest and enthusiasm about the violin, so it was possible to observe a positive instrumental evolution over that same period. This enthusiasm endures, proof of that is that Henrique continues to study the violin.

Met sprongen vooruit!

Zes maanden geleden ben ik als volwassen beginner gestart bij Berta. Sinds ik bij Berta les heb merk ik dat mijn spelen met sprongen vooruit gaat.  Na twee maanden waren mijn vaardigheden al meer verbeterd dan in de voorafgaande zes maanden bij een andere docent. Met hele simpele aanwijzingen zorgt ze ervoor dat je toon en strijktechniek direct verbeterd. Technische oefeningen worden afgewisseld met het spelen van uitdagende stukken. Zo mocht ik na twee maanden al aan mijn eerste concerto beginnen! Ze motiveert me echt om het beste uit mezelf te halen en ik ga elke week met veel plezier naar mijn lessen. Ik kan niet anders dan zeggen dat ik echt ontzettend blij ben met Berta als viooldocent.

Six months ago, I started with Berta as an adult beginner. Since then, I have improved and have actually progressed more in my first two months with Berta than in the six months prior while being taught by a different teacher.  Using simple instructions she manages to immediately improve your bowing technique and also your sound. Technical exercises are combined with challenging pieces to ensure progress is combined with fun. After only two months I was already playing my first concerto. Berta really motivates you to get the best out of yourself and every week I thoroughly enjoy my lessons. There really is no other way to state it than to say that I am extremely happy with Berta as my violin teacher.

I practise regularly!

Berta always ensures that students practice regularly and that they remain committed and motivated. She even asked me to send her audio and video recordings to accompany my daily development. I remember that a few weeks before the concerts, when I was nervous, she would always give me useful tips, not only to improve the technique, but also to get more comfortable with the violin.  At the beginning of each year, we prepared a study plan fitting the school timetable and the pieces I would like to play. Berta is always very enthusiastic and dynamic, organizing concerts and playing pieces together with the students!
