    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Initiated at the thing from a young age, I am passionate about music in general as well as jazz (and its African origins) in particular. Far from being closed-minded, however, I have collaborated on many musical projects exploring a variety of styles (funk, electro, jazz, afro, latin-jazz, spoken-word, hip-hop, fusion, soul, zouk, maloya). Currently, I shoot with 3 groups of which we will have, perhaps, the chance to speak viva voce.

    In addition to the more "academic" courses, I worked a lot on my instrument on the advice of some private teachers and especially as a self-taught teacher.

    Stay motivated! Music is a vast universe and there are many ways to listen to it, to enjoy it, but also to work and develop it. That is why, by paying close attention to the motivations of each student, I think that it is always possible to develop a personalized method, adapted to the best in order to allow each one to preserve all the pleasure that can provide the regular practice of his instrument.

    Whether using traditional exercises, methods or repertoires such as those of Hanon, Bach, Mark Levine, Charlie Parker or others, picking up pieces by ear, developing a sense of rhythm , composition, arrangement, etc., there is always one step more to go through and the resources to accomplish it in confidence, savoring the small daily progress.

    Regardless of the path followed, each new step undertaken is an opportunity for me to introduce (or to recall) musical notions peculiar to the piano or to music in general, as well as certain underlying and ubiquitous principles in the work. and the understanding of the instrument.

    It's been around twenty years that I develop my professional activities around this passion. 15 years ago, already, that I gave my first regular piano lessons, at the time of my university studies at the ULB In all, I would say that I accumulated 8 years of experience as a teacher , at home or in various schools / structures (Brussels Music School, REMUA, XL'Jeunes, International Montessori School).

    Whether they are 7 or 77 years old, the students always offer me unique experiences and points of view.

    From the beginning, I have been enjoying these opportunities to share what I know about my passion, to meet new people of all ages and all cultures around a shared motivation.

    Piano Lessons in The Hague Area - Beginners and Amateurs - Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Composition
    I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master's Degree at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 6 years now, I have been teaching students of all levels between 5 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!

    Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
    I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

    Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
    Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music (with honors), Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (with distinction) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing (with distinction). I am currently a professional opera singer working mainly in Germany with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Theater Rudolstadt, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions (97/100 for voice and 90/100 for piano). Besides, I am a holder of DipABRSM piano performance certificate and ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have been giving private singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 3 to 50 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques. Alongside with that, I spend a little time on every lesson for ear training, music theory, music history, sight-reading/sight-singing, music composition, instrumentation and conducting, depending on the interest of the student. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and presentation. I aim to provide all-round knowledge to my students so they will be well equipped for future development. For piano students who are at the beginning of their music journey, I use a lot of creative ways to teach basic knowledge such as rhythm and fingering. These creative ways include colorful presentation slides, arranging a tailor-made version of the songs they like and introducing fun games to keep them motivated. Each student will get something different because everyone is different. As an instructor of vocal masterclasses for choir students in Hong Kong, I see myself as the person who: -- opens the door of fundamental vocal techniques for the students; -- influences them to be confident; -- shows them the beauty of human voice and vocal music; -- teaches them to embrace the others without judgement. My way and attitude of teaching was proved to be successful with a lot of positive feedback. I tend to plan my classes in detail, and give notes to students every lesson. In this case, the students can follow the lessons easily and make the best out of their time. I do not make my students always say "yes" and "okay", I like to work with them and they are always welcome to tell me their needs. Since I grew up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong (Belilios Public School) and I have a lot of English-speaking students, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I am also knowledgeable in German, French and Italian. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.
