Hi there! My name is Daan Hutting and I’m a key player, producer/songwriter and I teach, with great pleasure, piano lessons at Muziekcentrum Logblock. At the moment I’m studying at the Conservatory of Amsterdam pop department and besides that I’m active in bands (also as a singer, guitarist, bassist and drummer) as well as a producer in many different genres.
I’ve been teaching piano lessons for about 7 years, usually specialized in light music (pop/jazz/rock/indie) but I started classical piano lessons at age 5, fascinated by the piano that stood in our living room. This provided me a good basis on which I built my musical career.
As a teacher I think it’s very important to notice what the student wants to achieve as well as getting the most out of someone. Do you want to learn that one new Ed Sheehan song, or just an advanced jazz-piece by Herbie Hancock; I can always help you. The nice thing about music is that you can learn and perform it on many levels. My job is therefore to find the right level for the right student, because only then we’re able to make a good progression as well as having fun in playing music.
Besides that I think it’s necessarily that my students not only play the piano, but also understand the music and get a taste of the music theory behind the pieces we play. That is because in my own experience it really helped me to make big steps as a starting musician.
You are also at the right place with me if you’re writing and maybe already producing own songs/pieces that you’d like to take to a higher level. I can give you many tips on how to get the best out of your own compositions, because of my experience as a songwriter/producer.
I hope to see you soon at Muziekcentrum Logblock, the best Music School in Amstelveen and its surroundings. Where I’d like to show you the beauty that making music has to offer!
