Music Lessons & Services
Holding a range of certificates and diplomas in Music Theory, Music Literacy & Composition, as well as being an active composer and arranger, Egbert Juffer (ALCM, AMusLCM, ATCL, AVCM) offers music lessons in the subjects Music Theory and Composition to pass on his knowledge and experience, as well as a range of compositional, theoretical and engraving services.
Do you wish to be able to read and understand music?
By studying Music Theory you will learn how music is written down, learn to recognise elements, signs and symbols and their meaning. Egbert guides his students step by step on their journey of studying Music Theory with a clear purpose: From learning the basic elements you learn to start reading the music. And from being able to read music, you will learn to understand music. Throughout this journey are plenty of examples of music, both written and recorded, available where the student can listen to, so it's no 'dry theory'!
Whether you play an instrument, or sing, or like to listen to music, through understanding more about music you enable yourself to appreciate and enjoy the music on a deeper level than you did before!

Teaching philosophy Music Theory:
It is Egbert's believe that being able to read the music and understand it is necessary for every musician, whether amateur or professional. Often students are more interested in playing their instrument or singing than in learning theory. However, it is really rewarding to explore deeper understanding of the music one is performing and to enhance musicianship. Some students like to study for exams; others prefer to focus on deepening understanding without wanting to take exams; all are welcome!
Lessons are being given from a professional music studio on the Isle of Skye, Scotland where local students can visit and from the same studio online by Skype, Zoom, Facetime or WhatsApp for (long) distance students.
