Emese Jeszenői


violinist & music teacher

the hague and surroundings

About

My name is Emese Jeszenői, living and working in The Hague, The Netherlands. I was born in Hungary in 1993. I graduated from the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest where I earned my Master degree in performing with a 'Good' grade and my Master degree in education with 'Highest honors'. Besides of being a performer, I started my teaching career in 2017. Currently I am studying Baroque and Classical Violin at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.

vision

My primary goal is to create a safe place for my students where they can explore their own talent and expand their skills.

Being a music teacher means a strong engagement to your students' needs and wishes. There is a confidential relationship between teacher and pupil. For me it is very important to make my students sure that they can feel safe and free in the lessons.

In my pedagogy I like to mix elements from different schools and traditions. I strongly believe in the great tradition of the Hungarian violin teaching and the Kodály concept, but I also like to find new perspectives from other schools. I include alternative ideas in my practice too, such as Kokas pedagogy and mindfulness.

lessons

I offer violin lessons from the age of 5. Should you or your child be a beginner or someone more experienced, you will find whatever you are looking for in my class.

Taking music classes is a good way of recreation and for children it has many beneficial effects. Playing an instrument improves the fine motor skills, the concentration and the imagination. Children can get engaged to an art which may be part of their lifes forever.


I put a lot of emphasis on keeping contact with parents and give them feedback about the progress of their child.


Having private lessons means that pupils don't get to meet fellow players too often. However, I find it crucial to build a community and bring people closer. For this reason, I organize midterm and end term recitals for all of my students. Attending these occasions is a good way to get to know each other, try out performing in front of an audience and enjoying the music we share with each other.


For the violin lessons the students need to have their own instrument, music stand and music books. I will give detailed instructions and help to obtain everything. In case you do not own an instrument, there are a lot of possibilities of renting one with which I can help too.

Besides teaching kids, since the beginning of my career I am also working with adults. I had and have absolute beginners and re-beginners too. Many people choose to start learning music or getting back to an instrument in adulthood. It is a good way of recreation, some time away from the outside, time only for yourself.


When I work with adults, I like to know more about their motivation and goals so we can shape the lessons and the whole process together. You can always specify which style you are interested in more and what is the right tempo for you besides your work and family life. I stand on your side and help you to discover and enjoy your own music, abilities, a different world.

safety measures

Since the lock-down situation I have been giving online lessons to my students and from September I will be back to in-person teaching. I introduced some safety measure so all of us can feel safe but still enjoy the sessions. Such measures are: wearing a face mask, cleaning the hands, reducing physical contact to the minimum and maintaining the 1.5-meter distance. In case of me, my students or our families would experience any COVID-related symptoms, I carry out the upcoming lesson online so we don't need to miss the session but we stay safe.


After a few months of online teaching my experience is that these lessons can be highly effective too, and all of my students could develop their skills on a good standard. Should you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to get in touch with me!
