The Maastricht Conservatory of Music provides numerous chances to broaden your contacts in the world of music.
Numerous international students from the Maastricht University and the Art Academies reside in the charming town of Maastricht.
Maastricht Conservatory is an all-Steinway school since Dec 2020.
A distinctive standard for Europe!
The majority of practise rooms contain a Steinway and Sons Grand Piano, and you will receive instruction on brand-new instruments.
Recently, the Hamburg Steinway Factory delivered 19 brand-new Steinways.
The renowned Maene Piano specialists do routine tuning and the maintenance on the Steinways.
The MASTER OF MUSIC Maastricht is one of the TOP Music Education Programs in The Netherlands.
Maastricht Conservatory has the highest standards of String and Wind classes, and there are many opportunities to play Chamber Music and Duos.
I teach piano technique that incorporates armweight technique and finger velocity and is based on "Weight-grading", "Key-bedding", "Grouping," and "Balancing Fingers."
My students typically achieve remarkably quick and solid results.
In contrast to Old Weight School, current arm-weight method is progressively becoming the standard when playing the piano.
The impact of arm weight on playing is quicker, more significant, and more effective when using the latest procedures and concepts.
The organisation of your technique and elementary piano skills, such as scales and octaves, is essential in modern professional piano playing.
As a result, one can play with confidence and ease while focusing solely on sound and expressiveness during even the most complex and challenging passagework.
