    Piano lessons via Zoom! Since a few months I have piano lessons via Zoom from Lennert Triesschein. Five years ago I started with lessons in Amsterdam. At that moment Lennart was a student of the Amsterdam Conservatorium and was looking for students to practice with. For one and a half year I took his lessons with great pleasure and I can assure you that it is not so easey to follow lessons when you're over sixty. Lennart has an eye for your personal problems. He knows that a young child needs another didactical approach than an adult. That makes him a person/teacher with great didactical skils. Next to the piano lessons, you learn a lot about the technical site of how to play your instrument. He knows a lot about the history of the composers and tells you stories and that makes that time flies, which feels great. After his graduation of the Amsterdam Conservatorium he went to the US for his master degrees. Via Facebook I followed his steps and a few months ago I read that he was looking for students to teach online. I was so happy with that message because my piano teachter in The Netherlands at that time had stopped giving lessons because of Covid19. So Lennart is again my teacher and I love having lessons by internet. I can stay at home and it feels less stressful for me. I am sitting at home behind my own instrument, that gives me more confidence and it leads to better results. I am very happy with the way it goes now! Piano lessons via Zoom!

    He knew exactly where I was in my development and adjusted his plans accordingly. Everyone is unique, and he takes the time to get to know his students and their musical skills, to build on their foundations and challenge them with new concepts. On top of that, he inspired me to continue in music and explore other styles.

  • Tim Kamp

    His patience and motivation to learn me how to play the piano. And on top of that he's really a very nice guy.

  • Farah belahcen

    He’s very patient. He can explain very well and if you have something specific you want to learn like a song he’ll have everything and more the next lesson for you to learn it. I loved my lessons with Lennart. I was always looking forward to go to my piano lessons.

How did you get started teaching?

By comunicating clearly with my students to determine the best teaching goals and the best teaching style that fits the student.

Mostly with kids and young adults (<21), but I have also had some students of 60+ years old.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently played my second Masters Recital at the University of Colorado in Boulder. It was a program featuring all German Romantic music, with some of my composers.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone who can offer you a broad and solid set of skills. Someone who has had both the experience of intense and serious musical training, and a lot of experience in performing. And on top of that it needs to be someone that you feel comfortable and inspired with.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

- What are my goals? Why do I want to play music?

- Do I have a good instrument to practise on?

- Do I have time to practise regularly?

- Do I want to commit to a fun and rewarding, but sometimes difficult hobby?
