In a relaxed atmosphere we will work on developing a smooth technique, always in a tension-free manner, focusing on tone production, dexterity of fingers, proper intonation and a healthy and comfortable posture. Notice and enjoy your progress!

Violin Lessons to Beginners

Well done for taking the first step! The violin is definitely one of the more challenging instruments to learn! You’'ll be encouraged to make music from the very first lesson. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty.

Duos and fun pieces

We make use of challenging 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 together in the lessons. Curious? Book a trial lesson!

Violin Lessons to Advanced

We will work on advanced pieces and etudes developing the technical skills on the violin and always look for musical ideas of the pieces. Keep going and bring your favourite violin sonatas/ concertos! Learn all about bowing technique, fluent bow changes, vibrato, intonation, phrasing and expressing yourself on the violin.

Baroque Violin

Are you in love with Bach’s music or do you prefer to play well known and unknown Italian baroque compositions from the 16th, 17th and 18th century? I'm a specialist and enjoy teaching you all about trills, ornaments, articulation, bowings and  fingerings! Initially it can be overwhelming but I’m sure you will love it! Want to try? Arrange a trial lesson!

About Giorgos Samoilis

I'm half Greek half Venezuelan and I started playing the violin at the age of seven. Music is  part of my life since I was a child and I'm totally addicted to the violin and the wonderful repertoire for the baroque violin. I have graduated from the conservatory of Utrecht as a baroque violin player with a masters degree and I perform often with baroque ensembles in the Netherlands and abroad. I love teaching since it is an opportunity to share my passion for music making!

Just let the learning process proceed at its own pace and find happiness in each improvement!

Vioolles is leuk!

Giorgos is aardig. Hij geeft op een ontspannen manier les waardoor het les krijgen echt leuk is. Hij is helemaal niet streng en hij maakt veel grapjes tussendoor. Hij heeft geduld en geeft je de tijd om wat voor mij moeilijk is goed onder de knie te krijgen. Ik kijk er iedere week weer naar uit om naar zijn lessen te gaan!

Plezier, humor en geduld

Ik volg met veel plezier een lessenreeks viool bij Giorgos. Hij kan op een ontspannen manier door middel van ervarend leren goed het vioolspelen aanleren. Met plezier, humor en geduld is hij met mij aan de slag gegaan. Hij past zijn tempo van lesgeven aan op wat ik als student aankan. Zo is het leren vioolspelen een fijn proces!

Motivating Teacher!

I am studying violin with Giorgos for a year and I always look forward to my violin lessons. Giorgos is a very motivating and positive teacher with a relaxed manner (but not too relaxed ;--)).Giorgos has many effective solutions and exercises to solve any technical difficulty. He has a great skill and creativity to explain things, which helps me a lot and gives me confidence. He is also a very nice, funny and comfortable person te work with. Thanks to Giorgos I think I made great progress this year!

Giorgos helped me!

I already had violin lessons for years when I was little, but stopped during my studies at university. After university I wanted to start again, to get the feeling back of playing the violin and try to become a bit better at it. Giorgos helped me to get back at it and to improve it. I really noticed the difference, already after a few lessons! Giorgos helps you to find your own way of practicing and also focuses on making a better sound. It makes it so much more fun to play if it sounds better. Furthermore he also arranges that I can play pieces with other musicians. Thanks a lot!

Grote stappen!

Als gemiddelde amateur heb ik al ruim een jaar vioolles bij Giorgos. En sinds ik les bij hem heb, heb ik grote stappen gemaakt. Waar ik vooral blij om ben, is dat Giorgos telkens onderzoekt waar ik vooral ondersteuning nodig heb, en hij past zijn didactische methode hier op aan. Ik krijg nooit een standaard les dus, maar een zeer gepersonaliseerde les, gericht op mijn eigen ambitie en doelstellingen. En over doelstellingen gesproken: deze worden samen bepaald en ingebed in mijn eigen voorkeur aan soort muziek. Last but not least: de stijl van Giorgos is coachend en aanmoedigend. Dat wil zeggen dat hij altijd bij wat goed gaat begint. Dat geeft zelfvertrouwen, en dat hoor je ook!
