Adriaan Gerryts

Adriaan Gerrys Global House of Music Teacher

Adriaan completed a BA-Mus degree at the University of Pretoria and is the violin teacher for Global House of Music. He conducts violin lessons both online and in person. He is currently completing a Suzuki teacher’s qualification. Adriaan enjoys composers from the romantic era; Mendelssohn, Bruch and Paganini. Bach’s genius in harmony and sensitivity and Mozart’s witty elegance also influenced him. 

Where it all began

Starting off in several youth orchestras, Adriaan now performs with the Pretoria Symphony Orchestra and Capital Chamber Orchestra as well as various string ensembles. He is currently the substitute concertmaster for the Pretoria Symphony Orchestra. A highlight of his career was a solo performance for Kyknet’s Sandra op ‘n Drafstap.

Adriaan credits music for developing many skills – music comforted him and facilitated personal growth. Making music with friends and colleagues created opportunities and memories. Performing taught him to deal with pressure and stress.

As a teacher

Adriaan finds satisfaction watching his students grapple with challenges and persevere. Students’ satisfaction and joy, once they overcome these, is the greatest reward. He recognises the ability playing an instrument has to reduce stress, foster self-discipline and express emotion. Hand-eye co-ordination and abstract thinking are also enhanced. 

Adriaan dabbles with musical arrangements and winds down with Netflix in his free time. During holidays he engages in woodwork projects and goes camping.
