Great teacher for my 8yr old daughter. He is patient and explains things I'm a way that gets through to my kid. Highly recommended!
Bella
Phenomenal teacher! Rob simplifies advance techniques and organizes your lesson based on your personal goals. My lessons have been very informative but still always fun! I’ve improved significantly since our lessons began and have received guidance on how to make the most of my practice time on my own as well.

During this quarantine, having my lessons virtually is such a light during these challenging times, and they’re just as enjoyable as in person. Rob really is easygoing and has a great sense of humor!
Myles
Excellent teacher! Highly recommend! Feel like I’m going to learn so much and improve greatly!

Christiaan is a great teacher! Very thorough, patient, intelligent. He has a unique background in multiple styles/genres. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him!
George D.
WOW! Seriously, he's that good.

Before I started my lessons with Christiaan I would blow my voice out during extended singing sessions and knew I needed to find a vocal coach with the expertise to help me to prevent permanent damage. He quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses and gave me many tools and techniques I never even thought I'd be capable of.

Christiaan has an amazing teaching style and always brings positive energy to each lesson. He knows how to offer constructive criticism in a gentle way that makes you excited to want to do better.

I'm much more motivated and confident as a singer-songwriter as a result of these lessons and I can't thank him enough for bringing that element to my life.
Jerry H.
I took classes with Christiaan for about a year and a half. He is a really experienced singer, and his lessons were amazing!
We worked together for a grad school audition for vocal performance. I would not have got the offer without Christiaan. He was super helpful, patient, and really helped me become a better singer/performer! Definitely recommend his lessons!

So you're interested in writing music? That's awesome!
Do you listen to music and think, how does that even work? Or do you create your own songs in your head but struggle putting them to paper? Or perhaps you have a journal full of songs but you're not sure what to do with them? Or maybe you play an instrument and have already started putting songs to music but you just feel like something is missing?
No matter what stage you are at in your songwriting I am happy to help you get from where you are to where you want to be. You don't need to have any background in music whatsoever to be an amazing songwriter. Did you know that A LOT of famous bands and singers actually have other people write their music for them? Whether you are a well versed poet full of ideas or you can barely even rhyme or hold a tune, if you have a passion for music and songwriting there is nothing stopping you from writing dozens upon dozens of your own.
As a partner in your music journey, I aim to work with you

About Avenira

What is it that sparks your unique musical expression? That is what I'm here to help you find and pursue. Maybe you want yourself, or your child, to know everything there is to know about music? Perhaps you'd like to learn to how to play your favorite songs? Or do you have your owns so

Joy
My 16-year-old ---who had not practiced for over a year---is absolutely loving her lessons with Ms. Avenira! With only 3 lessons, I am now seeing the spark for playing the violin return to my daughter's eyes. Ms. Avenira is meeting my daughter "where she is" and truly customizing lessons to move her forward. She provides detailed updates for each lesson, and I could not be happier with my investment. Excellent teacher.
Michelle P.
Avenira really connected with my 14 year old, while our daughter has always been enthusiastic to learn an instrument, putting in the practice and the work has been a challenge in the past. Avenira's format, which allows flexibility for how the student learns best, is really working. My daughter has been practicing every night (unprompted by us), and is really excited abut her next lesson with Avenira. She also loves that she can learn both guitar and piano with Avenira, since she is interested in both. Avenira was very motivating, complimenting our daughter for being focused and for doing a great job during the lesson. Definitely would rate Avenira A+++++++!!
Ela
Avenira has such kindness! She has taught me so so much and she was the best instructor I had. She let me learn the song I wanted to learn, and I felt more passionate and confident about my singing and playing than ever. I wanted to practice more, I wanted to become better, and this never happened with other instructors.

I love her. She is so sweet, she is amazing I would tell all my friends interested in piano, voice, music theory, songwriting or anything having to do with music, to take lessons with her.
