celloles bij Sebastiaan de Rode


I have been teaching cello with great pleasure for many years. Playing music with other musicians - from small ensembles to large orchestras - is one of the most enjoyable parts of making music. From playing music together you learn a lot: besides having lots of fun, you learn to listen to each other for example. Therefore, I spend a great deal of the lessons on ensemble playing. Of course we’ll also work on hearing training, reading notes, music theory and posture behind the instrument.


Playing the cello is for people of all ages (minimum age of students for me is 5 years old) and of all levels. Whether you would like to learn the basics of playing the cello or to take your playing to a higher level, please feel free to contact me for more information about lessons and to book a trial lesson.


Perhaps you already play with a pianist or other musicians. Maybe you have an ensemble and you are looking for someone to listen to the overall balance and to give some pointers. I teach and coach music ensembles of many different instruments (for example piano trio or string quartet) and offer coaching sessions alongside my regular lessons.


My lessons are held on a weekly basis and at my studio. I offer 30, 45 and 60-minute lessons, depending on age, level and desire.

When you live in or close to one of the following cities, lessons can be addressed at your home:

- Amsterdam

- Haarlem

- Heemstede / Aerdenhout

- Lisse (also at Cinema Floralis)

- Purmerend (also at music school Van Ingen)
