Violin lessons

Music plays a significant role in our life. Sharing music allows us to communicate on a deeper level and to discover our deeper self. Playing an instrument opens up a whole new world of experience that further enhances the mind, physical coordination and expression. It allows us to unlock creativity in us. It is a privilege to share my passion with others. 
I tailor my teaching method to the needs, expectations and taste of my students. On my lessons you can learn different styles, depending on your taste (from classical, to film, jazz, folk and pop music). 

Reviews 

Genuine enthusiasm!

We wholeheartedly recommend Tomasz Alexander Plusa as a talented violin teacher and practicing musician. During our year abroad, Tomasz masterfully taught our daughter how to improve her technique and approach to playing the violin by sharing his real-world experience and passion for both music in general and this instrument in particular. Tomasz skillfully communicated the importance of discipline in practice without being preachy or condescending. Instead, he inspired improvement through genuine enthusiasm, demonstration, and useful expert tips. Thank you Tomasz and Vivaldi!

Elke les een genot!

Tomasz is een gepassioneerde violist en zijn enthousiasme werkt aanstekelijk. De basis van de lessen is muziek maken, techniek is daarbij helpend en wordt aangeleerd om meer muzikaal te kunnen spelen. Door gebruik te maken van mooie metaforen kan Tomasz je perfect duidelijk maken wat je moet doen. Door zijn vrolijkheid en positieve houding is elke les een genot!

Perfect Teacher!

Since I came to the Netherlands in 2017, I started to learn violin with Tomasz. Although I have been playing modern violin for fifteen years, Tomasz is the most special teacher I have ever met, and also the enlightenment teacher of my Baroque violin. I still remember the first lesson we started learning Bach's chaconne, rather than only focusing on technique improvement, he first taught me lots of basic knowledge on baroque music form and specifically in this piece: what is chaconne, what is the basso continuo and melody line in this piece, how to play the chords in a correct and historical way, etc. He also demonstrated on his baroque violin and that open me up a totally new world: a warmer, more active, and full of emotion and vitality voice that I have never heard before. Now I have already switch to baroque violin and started from zero, with the detailed and patient help by Tomasz. Sometimes he combined the baroque violin playing with history background, visualized the music style by painting, or other beautiful metaphors. He is a passionate and perfectionist musician and teacher. He said that playing the violin is like making a sculpture. Only crafted with great care and precision can complete a piece of artwork. All in all, Tomasz's violin lessons have benefited me a lot from both playing technique and musicianship.

Building the interest in music

Tomasz Aleksander Plusa is introducing our 8-years old son Alek into the world of violin. The lessons are fun as Tomasz not only concentrates on pure technical aspects of playing, but also inspires to discover the beauty of classical music. He masters in addressing to children in order to keep their attention and engagement. We do recommend him as an excellent teacher.

Betrokken en vriendelijk
 
Tomasz Plusa is een vriendelijke en betrokken viooldocent. Hij stemt zijn lessen af op de behoeften, niveau en tempo van de leerling. Daarnaast staat Tomasz open voor het spelen van diverse muziekgenres, dus je hoeft nooit bang te zijn dat je jouw favoriete muziek niet kan spelen. Al met al vind ik Tomasz een hele fijne docent, met talent voor zowel vioolspelen als het lesgeven, die ik iedereen zou aanraden.

Enthousiasme voor muziek
 
Tomasz Plusa is zeer ervaren docent met vriendelijke en warme persoonlijkheid.
Hij is geduldig en zoekt naar de beste methode om de doel te bereiken. Ik voelde me erbij goed ondersteund en begrepen.
Zijn enthousiasme voor muziek en viool is zeer stimulerend en zijn passie helpt de student de beste uit zichzelf naar boven
te halen. Zelfs als ik vanaf 0 viool en muziek ervaring begonnen ben, na een klein jaartje kon ik al een klassieke stukjes te spelen.
De technische oefeningen worden goed ingezet naar behoefte en afgewisseld met plezierige oefeningen in je eigen muziekvoorkeur. Kortom een super leuke ervaring.

Passionate teacher 
 
Tomasz is a passionate teacher who expects his students to achieve their maximum. He motivates them to work hard and not to give up. What I appreciate the most is that he could match the music they learn with the character of a child.  He has been teaching my children for three years now.  He helped my son discover his passion and talent for playing folk music. Thanks to Tomasz my son enjoys practicing and often plays for pleasure in his free time.

Genuine love for music

Our daughter had been playing the the violin for six years when she first started playing with Tomas. She has been taking individual violin classes with him for two years now. During this time she has significantly developed her skills, but perhaps more importantly, her motivation and curiosity in the instrument.

 Tomas has a genuine love for music. He communicates easily with our daughter, is patient and adapts to the inevitable ups and downs of individual lessons. Tomas’ positive attitude and patience, together with his ability to select appropriate pieces without overwhelming the student, have been extremely helpful in furthering our daughter’s interest in playing the violin. 

 Finally, we really appreciate the efforts Tomas regularly takes to bring his students together for an informal concert afternoon. 

We highly recommend him as a teacher.

Heel oprecht

'Jarenlang had mijn viool stil gelegen. Ik besloot weer vioolles te nemen. Op internet op zoek naar een viool leraar, koos ik Tomas, vanwege zijn vriendelijke uitstraling. En dat is hij...heel vriendelijk.Tomas heeft van zijn passie zijn vak gemaakt en weet dat over te brengen.

'De muziek zit tussen de noten'.

Ik ervaar Tomas als heel oprecht en dat geeft een extraatje aan de vioolles. Dankbaar dat ik bij hem terecht ben gekomen'.

All-rounder with talent and passion for playing and teaching.

Tomasz Plusa is a friendly and committed teacher. Rather than following a strict agenda he changes the learning program’s style, tempo and level to suit the individual student’s needs. Tomasz has mastery over different styles and genres of music, which makes the lessons versatile and dynamic. Since he gives students a lot of freedom where it comes to picking pieces you never have to worry that you won’t get to play your favorite music. Tomasz is an all-rounder with talent and passion for both playing and teaching violin. I would recommend him to everyone.
