Hallo! My name is Claudia Brouwer (Cañedo Cázarez). Music and teaching are the biggest passion of my life. Nothing compares to the pleasure of making music and sharing it with others. It is one of the greatest human experiences we can have.
I have nearly 20 years of experience as a music and piano teacher in different countries and work now as a private teacher and freelance pianist in Groningen, NL. During the years I have worked with hundreds of students of all ages in different educational contexts and focus now on beginners and intermediate level students of all ages including 3 years old children.
Music pedagogy at the University of Guadalajara (Mexico)
Piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama of London (United Kingdom)
Bachelors Degree in Piano Performance from the Maastricht Conservatorium (Netherlands)
Master Degree in Educational Sciences from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium)
Baroque music, harpsichord and singing at the Leuven Music Academy
I am currently doing post-hbo studies on music education for the elementary school at the Conservatorium of Amsterdam.
Member of the European Piano Teachers association (EPTA).
I am interested in neuropedagogy, neurosciences of music and research based music education. My master thesis was dedicated to research music and dyslexia and other cognitive problems. I keep doing private research on different aspects of piano learning and development of kindergarten age children.
My playing goes from light music, covers, classic and improvisations. I write piano music for beginners and intermediate level players as well as arrangements and pedagogical works.
