Guitar lessons (acoustic & electric) for all ages
The guitar lesson will allow you to have an initiation for a person who has no notion about it or who is not necessarily foreign to certain concepts related around the instrument. The work will be carried out in stages, taking into account the level of the student, the objective pursued as well as the time dedicated, all this in a structured, fun way and above all taking pleasure. It will be a question of basic elements such as the work of major/minor open chords, scales, the development of the musical ear and gradually going into the depth of certain styles such as blues, funk, jazz, bossa nova, samba, pop. , rock to dissect other elements enriching the game on the guitar. This progressive work put in place will consolidate the foundations for developing learning over time.

Clarinet and bass clarinet lessons in Brussels for everyone.
I am a professional clarinetist graduated with distinction at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels (Master Degree in Clarinet) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from the Music Conservatory of Valencia (Spain). Currently I am studying for a Master's Degree in Bass Clarinet, so we can combine both instruments in my lessons. I teach students of all ages and levels. In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination. The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes. On top of playing, I can also offer lessons on harmony, form analysis and counterpoint that focus on understanding the structure of music. My lessons will already include many different aspects of the music being taught but there is the option of focusing the theoretical or the practical. i am looking forward to teaching you music!

PLACES, FEES - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Cours de violon et theorie musical à Bruxelles et alentours
Le cours du violon dure 1h / 1h30 normalement, cela dépend du niveau et des nécessités ou préférences de l'élève. Je voudrais travailler de deux manières différentes: d'une part, nous pouvons travailler sur les aspects techniques de l'instrument; par ailleurs, on peut travailler sur le répertoire et la musicalité. J'essaie d'adapter ma façon d'enseigner à l'élève, en pensant toujours à mon expérience en tant qu'étudiant, musicien professionnel et enseignant, toujours pour aider l'élève à s'améliorer et à se sentir bien en apprenant. Je donne aussi des cours de solfège, d'harmonie et d'analyse de la musique, car c'est une bonne base pour les musiciens et aide à comprendre la structure et le fonctionnement de la musique. Les cours peuvent être en espagnol, anglais et français.

Cours de musique (formation musicale, harmonie classique jazz et pop/rock, histoire de la musique)
(FR au dessous) Music is universal. It's a truth we accepted, but we don't figure out how far it can go. After years of studying and professional activity linked to music, I discovered that the limits among different music genres is a mirage: there are more things in common between hip-hop, for example, and classical music than differences. That's why I offer lessons of harmony, music structure and forms and composition adapted to any concerns and interests. All levels. All ages. - (FR) La musique est universelle. C'est une vérité qu'on accepte, mais on ne peut pas s'imaginer jusqu'a quel point elle l'est. Après des années d'études et d'activité professionnelle dans la musique (classique, avantgarde et jazz) j'ai découvert que les limites entre les différents styles de musique ne sont qu'un mirage: Il y a beaucoup plus de ressemblances entre le hip-hop et la musique classique que de différences. C'est pour cela que j'offre des cours d'harmonie, structure et composition de musique pour tous les niveaux et complètement adaptées aux inquiétudes de l'élève. Si vous cherchez à avoir une visión unifié de la musique et comment être versatile en plusieurs styles, ne doutez pas à me contacter.
