Courses that are great for expats.

Would you like to meet new people in Amstelveen and learn something new? Our music, dance, creative and languages courses are a perfect opportunity for that!

A large percentage of the people in Amstelveen are expats. Quite a few of the teachers at Platform C are expats themselves and know what it’s like to discover and explore a new country, their customs and the language. Our aim is to make sure everyone in Amstelveen can enjoy the benefits of picking up an instrument and learn how to play it. To take dancing lessons, even when you’re an adult. We also offer sculpting, painting and other creative courses. Then there’s also the language courses that we offer. English and Dutch for all levels and more. Explore all the options below and sign up today. 

The majority of the courses will be in Dutch, but all our teachers speak good English and will therefore be able to teach you or your child in either English or Dutch. At the moment, the parents of the babies and toddlers course prefer the music to be in Dutch, but we can easily adapt this to English, when requested. Same with most of the other courses. What’s most important to us is that you feel at ease, at comfort and excited to be here. If you have any remarks or ideas on how to improve this, please let us know. In the past, we’ve had parents point out that they would love a music class for their babies on Wednesday morning, so we’ve accommodated that. 

If there are any questions, we would love to help! Please send an e-mail to and we’ll answer any queries you might have.
