Wat is de Gypsy Academy?

De Gypsy Academy heet officieel “De Internationale Haagse Kinderacademie voor Authentieke Zigeuner- en Volksmuziek”

Sinds oktober 2009 heeft Den Haag een heuse Gypsy Academy, gestart onder leiding van Herr Martin Schaefer, de inspirerende zigeuner- en volksmuziekspecialist uit Zwitserland die ouders en kinderen betovert met zijn muziek, en  juffie Stieneke. De Academy bestaat uit kinderen van 6  tot 11 jaar die volgens de Suzuki-methode vioolles hebben bij Juffie Stieneke. Sinds 2018 staan (oud-Suzuki leerlinge) Annemarie van Prooijen en Zigeunerviolist Noa Eyl aan het roer.

 

De Gypsy Academy heeft een aansprekend repertoire van ruim  een uur: Roemeense en Hongaarse tophits zoals de geliefde vogel-imitatie, het beroemde Arabische Yasmina, het Israëlische Mazzeltov, het Griekse Milise Mou. De kinderen spelen ook Ierse en Zweedse fiddle-muziek.

Location: Riouwstraat 23 The Hague

Telephone after 9 pm : (070) 350 310 5

Gypsy Academy Hours 3 times per year: M &Th: 3.30 -8 pm

History of the Gypsy Academy

martin-schaeffer

Here, in such beautiful city, an emblem of peace and justice, a lot of communities joined, leaving behind their countries, to learn how to live happily together.

Spanish, English, German, Italian, Dutch, French, Turkish, Iranian, Chinese, American, Canadian: a lot of families gather for violin lessons with Juffie Stieneke for their children from different parts of Europe and also from the rest of the world.

In the international schools children learn from their differences, mixing many languages or cultural backgrounds. In everyday life and in the Suzuki group violin lessons, sharing with Dutch children extra curriculum activities or simply playing with the boy or the girl next door, they assimilate also the Dutch language and culture. Even if they speak English, they do believe in Sinterklaas. They are not expats but international world citizens! And so are the Dutch children who learn about different habits outside the violin lessons.

They also are able to figure out and celebrate Europe. The Gypsy Academy-project is to gather them in music.

De Zigeuners - ons voorbeeld

“We are full of admiration for the gypsies. How they play their instrument. How they play violin with such a joy and freedom and how they seem to improvise”

Droom

Van de oprichter

I would like to realize with these children a dream which I have had since a long time: to found a CHILDRENS FOLK ORCHESTRA in The Hague – an orchestra where also the youngest 6-year-olds can play together with the oldest 12/14-year-olds. Folk music, gypsy music, Klezmer music, tango, waltzes and popular melodies from the classics (musicals, opera, operettas and cinema). An orchestra where you learn to play the violin, where you learn to play music together while playing folk music: a kind of GYPSY ACADEMY…
