Hein Boterberg gives piano lessons to all levels and ages, in preparation for exams, concerts
or simply to enhance your learning experience. Lessons focus on the needs of the individual. 
The aim is to develop interpretation, communication, imagination and technique. 
Musical education has always been one of my strongest passions.
The way it supplements your general development is fascinating.

 

A few of my inspirations:

Anne Dickson (writer):
"Sing, dance, paint for the sheer pleasure of it -
instead of getting lost in achieving marks for artistic performance!."
If you can find pleasure in what you're doing, it will be transferred. 
Heinrich Neuhaus (pianist and pedagogue): 
"You can only boil water at 100 degrees." 
It is vital to solve problems and correct mistakes as soon as possible.
With creating the correct habits that can be produced instinctively under great
pressure, a performer can enhance the performance. In this, immediate and frequent
repetition of corrections overcomes the power of possible incorrect habit.
 
Igor Stravinsky (composer):
"The sin against the spirit of the work always begins with a sin against its letter."
The attention to detail is important to obtain good results. 
 
John Wooden (basketball coach):
"Trusting ourselves and each other
is a part of our higher nature,
doubting is a lower instinct.”
Performing demands a lot of trust.
Trust in ourselves,
our abilities
and the people around us.
