Maggie is an incredible teacher! My daughter has been taking lessons with her for 3 months now and she has improved so much. My daughter is in high school and has been playing for a few years now. She wanted to be more serious so we started taking lessons with Maggie. She has so much fun every lesson and I can hear her improve every time she practices after a lesson. Maggie makes playing the bass so fun. My daughter is always so excited and I can’t wait to see where this will lead to next.

Maggie has expert knowledge about the double bass from studying with members of the best orchestras in the US. Her teaching lead me to achieve things on the instrument that I didn't know I could do. I highly recommend her as a teacher!

Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

I’m a Native Speaker with over 10 years experience with tutoring. My lessons are fun and dynamic, they integrate grammar, conversation and culture. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations, that can be conveniently applied during a trip to Italy! We learn about Italian food recipies, music, and much more.
There’s no learning a language without understanding the culture and viceverse :) All lessons can be tailored to the student’s needs.
