Over Alejandro C. C.
My name is Alejandro, a professional violinist, and teacher. I teach because I have a strong impulse to share!
As a teacher, I feel comfortable the most when I am surrounded by a highly motivated atmosphere, so I diligently encourage you to be motivated.
I am very proactive, and enthusiastic. I try to be as professional and collaborative as possible and I always look forward to learning, constant growth, and having very clear goals.
I have been studying with exceptionally good teachers and have been lucky enough to absorb as much from their mastery. I have been playing the violin since I was practically born, I cannot live without my violin. During the lessons, I share the knowledge I have acquired during so many years.
In my lessons, we will work on: health, posture, and intensity versus relaxation. We will work on vibrato, intonation, and articulations, but also bow speed, phrasing, and dynamics. I teach you to make the bow and the violin work for you and not the other way around. I want to -whatever you do- make it your own.
For me, it is a privilege to devote myself to what I like the most. To be a pedagogue is almost like being a magician, as you teach hidden treasures! During the time together with the students, we are going to talk about what creates magical moments.
The essence of what I try to do with music is to transmit something unique so that it will live with the listener.
My teaching method is variable depending on your needs, but the goal is shared: to make a great musician and qualified violinist out of you.
I work on both technical and musical aspects from a (very) consciously prepared healthy and enjoyable perspective. Particular emphasis on having fun with the little ones!
I pay special attention to creating personalized lessons and experiences for every one of my students. I also give some additional tools applicable to violin playing which includes: Introduction to Yoga, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, and Body & Mind. All the basic theory is taught too.
Among the required tools for my lessons are a violin and a bow, score and books purchases when necessary, and, from time to time, meetings with the parents. On occasion, I use digital tools like phone/tablet apps.
About the homework, I send it to you on a weekly basis and encourage you to participate in competitions and summer music courses.
I can teach in various places near or in the center of Amsterdam, or, depending on the need, I can move to pretty much wherever in The Netherlands.
- Music sheets with the needed repertoire and recordings can be provided FREE of charge.
- I can help you find an instrument that suits your budget.
- My schedule changes every week according to the lessons and performances, so feel free to contact me to arrange the lessons together.
