Harmony and Classical Writing

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
This applied music theory course is for any passionate musician, regardless of level.

It aims to broaden his musical knowledge and abilities by understanding music as a whole. The goal is to be able to decode and understand how a music (not only of classical style, but also pop, jazz, rock, electro, ...) was composed, and to be able to use interesting harmonies oneself. and solid in a personal composition / production.

It is made up of two main topics:

* Harmony (building chords, understanding chord diagrams, learning to Harmonize a given melody, the possibility or not of using these Harmonies in a given style, etc.).
But also understand the key, how to build a scale, how to navigate between different keys, how to transform a classic chord suite into another style?
Harmony is a course open to all and all levels, no prerequisites to have. Any passionate musician will find interest in it, that's guaranteed.

* Writing is a much more targeted course, which is already an introduction to classical composition. In this branch, we will develop the rules of classical writing (parallel fifths and octaves, false relations etc, ...) within the framework of an exercise based on a given melody or bass (in the first case it will be necessary to invent harmonization and compose a bass, in the second, it will be necessary to invent the harmonization and the melody).

This course can also be used by academy or conservatory students who wish to prepare for the writing exam, or simply to deepen their knowledge.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been passionate about saxophones ever since I saw and heard Lisa Simpson play on television.
So I started to learn the instrument before my hands were big enough to be able to hold it fully.

Since then, I have explored many musical universes, having a culture mainly oriented towards Jazz music and of course classical music, which I am currently studying at the Brussels Conservatory in a professional manner. I am interested in all musical styles without distinction, in order to take the best of each universe to transpose it into a music that I wish the most sincere and rich ... I work for example a lot on electronic music coupled with acoustic sounds, or French music projects with texts, through jazz fusion between two sessions of contemporary music. I try to mix my various knowledge to look for new things.

Finally, I love meeting musicians, whatever their age, their musical intentions or their level; I love to teach simply, because I teach is to share knowledge, and sharing is the very essence of music!
My course does not require any notion of music theory, because it is based on listening and practice.
However, if the student wants to deepen the theory, this is also widely possible.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I started my musical training at the Conservatory of Tournai, I graduated to the maximum level in saxophone, advanced music theory and in classical writing and analysis.

I am now finishing my Bachelor degree in classical and contemporary saxophone at the Koninklijke Conservatorium in Brussels, with in parallel a second course about to culminate in harmony and classical writing, also at KcB.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have lived a lot in very diverse formations, ranging from street groups such as Brass bands or other fanfares from the Balkans, through intimate experimental jazz trios, but also by larger orchestral groups, of instruments classical winds, Big bands, cover groups and even many contemporary quartets or children's music! ...

In short, I like diversity and I am convinced that there is a way to approach music in an absolute way, to be able to stick to all possible styles of music if we clearly identify the peculiarities and the spirit.

It is this key to universal understanding of music that I try to transmit through my lessons which, at the choice of the student of course, can switch from one style to another, from pop to classical, from rock to rock. jazz, rap to electro, ...

It was my first time to play the saxophone. I was very nervous. Bastien made the start very easy and relaxing. Very Happy with my first lesson. Thanks Bastien
I just had my first class today. It was really great. I admire Bastien for the patience and words of encouragement. I will definitely continue our adventure with sax and the music!
Great prof, Bastien knows his material really well and knows very good exercices to improve technique.
Mon papa était très contente :)
Amazing first saxophone-experience, even for slow learners! :)
...
[ENGLISH, SEE BELOW] A music theory course for anyone who wants to start with a solid foundation in music, or for an already advanced musician who wants to go further. This course is also perfect for an academy or conservatory student who wishes to prepare for the music theory exam. Despite the fact that this is a so-called theoretical course, everything that is seen will first be worked on in a musical context and experienced by the student in order to be assimilated. The theoretical explanations will follow from it by itself. On the program (student's choice) - Ear training (knowing how to rewrite melodies with one or more voices, chords, etc.) - Note readings in one or more keys - Rhythm readings, polyrhythmic work - Encryption and recognition of agreements, - Transposition. This musical theory lesson suits to every level, from the one who wants to learn how to read music to the one who wants to know more about chords, transposition or polyrythms. This lesson is also perfect for a student who wants to prepare an examination. In despite the fact I called these lesson "Musical theory", it is firstly about understanding the music. And that can only be possible by ... doing music. So be aware that we will be singing, playing chords, clapping rhythms, ... My purpose is that the student understand by himself first, then the theory will come naturally. What we can do during a lesson (student can choose): - Ear training (Learn to catch a melody of one or several voices and write it down by ear, recognizing chords, recognizing rhythms, ...) - Rythmical work: learn to clap different rhythms in different time signatures. Also included polyrythms. - Key reading, in one or several keys. - Transposition (learn how to read a flute sheet while you're playing trumpet, ..)
Student at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. From practical lessons to theoretical notions, I know how to adapt to the student and his interests to provide a course that really brings him the elements that will allow him to quickly flourish in the musical field. With already 4 years of course experience in non-profit organizations and in particular, I usually train students of all ages, beginners or more advanced. I am open to a large number of musical styles, current or old, focusing my thought on a "musical whole". I currently specialize in classical and contemporary saxophone but I am also very open to improvisation and live music such as jazz and the styles that derive from it, but also to electronic music. My final goal is to allow the student to express his ideas in music, and that he really evolves and flourishes in what pleases him. I take beginners without any knowledge of music theory. I am available in: * Brussels region. * Region of Tournai occasionally. * Online, via webcam lessons

María
Cours de violoncelle pour tous! / Cello lessons for everyone! / ¡Clases de Cello para todos! / Cellolessen voor iedereen!
Hello to everyone! My name is María, I am a Venezuelan Cellist. All my musical education was inside the musical program "El Sistema" in Venezuela. This education was based on preparing myself as a better human being though playing cello in orchestras, chamber music and as soloist. I am current studying my Master degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with Jeroen Reuling. In what consist my lessons? Cello classes for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced), it does not matter if you have never played cello before or if you are already studying, the important thing is to help you achieve the goals you want with this beautiful instrument. To have better results with practice, if it is necessary to help you with music theory, I will help you. As well, if you're looking for help in orchestral excerpts for auditions, I'm here for you! For kids, parental support is also important during some lesson, we are all a team and we need to work together to achieve the goals! Classes can be in person at your house or mine (just in Brussels, Belgium) or via videocall (Skype, Zoom, etc). The schedules are planned according to the time of the student and the teacher. Looking forward to meeting you and work together! Maria.

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.

Ngoc

Furmi
SAXOPHONE LESSONS / Master's Degree in music / 5 years living and playing in New York City!
Have you ever seen a saxophone and wondered how it feels to play it? It’s never too late to start! I will help you get started with the instrument. Do you already know how the instrument works? Great! Let’s take it to another level! I have plenty of study method books with a big range of different styles, we will find the ones that you enjoy the most and suit you better and combine it in the right way, to help you improve. Plus work on any music that you personally want to learn, name any song and I will help you learn how to play it! I myself had amazing and terrible music teachers during my learning process and believe me, I know what a difference makes… To really enjoy learning music or just to feel a ‘must study’, is the difference between ‘…I have to’ or ‘I want to!’.

Arta
Piano lessons for beginners, intermediates and advanced levels of playing
Learning how to play the piano is a goal you can reach only by frequent exercising. Considering the fact that many pupils and grownups don't have much time to practise, my piano lessons are split in learning new information and also practising together.

Gabriele
Violin and chamber music classes for beginner/intermediate
During my training, I had the opportunity to study with famous teachers with whom I was able to discover different violin techniques and different pedagogical approaches, which allowed me to create my own methodology. If Italy gave me the passion of sharing and communication (a typical Italian characteristic), Belgium taught me to convey a message, an idea in a concrete way. My meeting with Mr Lawson also made me aware of the importance in the life of an artist to share his knowledge, and teaching is for me the best way to put this sharing into practice.

José
Electric guitar lessons, acoustic or music theory.
Passionate, Curious, Open, Professional and Smiling, I am from Mexico. My music career has taken me to several cultural capitals, including London, New York, Brussels and Paris. During my professional life I had the opportunity to perform with recognized jazz musicians such as Brian Lynch or EJ Strickland. I also composed for the National Orchestra of Mexico. My mother being a university teacher, I grew up in an environment where education is valuable. Thus, music and foreign languages are two passions I like to associate: I teach guitar in French, English or Spanish. In my ideals as a teacher, the technical and theoretical aspects of music education should never be a barrier to taste for the associated musical activity and cultural aspect. Seeing the surprise of my students when they discover their potential and their progress is the greatest of my satisfactions as a teacher. My students describe me as patient, efficient, kind and reliable.

Piano lessons, composition, and MAO, home-based individuals
Hello, I am a pianist and composer. I offer private lessons piano and composition and MAO at home. I have 7 years of experience giving piano lessons, and I have proposed some strategies for different types of students. Are you a beginner? Are you afraid to enter the piano world? I offer you "flexible" songs for you, with simple harmony, maybe pop or classic. In this type, I would tell you how you can know and play as you want, it means, as you are a composer of this piece. Either you're a child or you're an adult, it's a chance to find out how you'll be in music. If the composer has chosen 1-6-2-5 progressions rather than 1-4-5-1, what does he mean and how are you going to interpret it? Have you played some time yet but still want to go further? Either the conservatory does not satisfy you enough, or does your teacher only tell you abstracts? When I was in the conservatory, very often, I heard that teachers say '' it's not music '' '' we have to sing '' but without clear explanations, without '' why ''. I have always thought, if you meet a doctor and ask him how you should do, he tells you that '' you must feel it '' '' you will find it '', will you stay with this doctor looking for another? For this guy, I like to introduce you to the possibilities of your pieces that you have played by time or why composers score like that. I always recommend, give composers a chance. I will explain why composers write them, with harmony (for example, chopin as master), equivalence between melody and harmony (Bach is genius in the case), use of bass (Beethoven), interpretation of epochs, yes, every era has its usual, for example, swing of jazz, the way to crescendo immediately shows at the end during classic, but gradually during post-romantic, it can reopen your eyes to Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Bach. Do you have a lot of experiences but you want to go further or produce your soundtracks? In this case, as I am also conductor, composer and I also do digital music. I can also show you some techniques that maybe you need in 2019. With DAW as Logic Pro X, either your tracks, Beethoven or Mozart Chopin Liszt ... or jazz. Language: French, English and Chinese If you are interested, it is with pleasure to give you lessons at home. I thank you for your reading. App

Javier
PROFESSIONAL GUITARIST WITH MORE THAN 15 YEARS OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE - ALL LEVELS
Hello, my name is Javier. I am a guitarist, composer, sound technician and music producer. I work professionally, especially in contemporary Jazz. Don't hesitate to look for me on Google, Spotify and YouTube! During more than 15 years of experience as a teacher, I have developed several methods and exercises for teaching guitar and music (songs, theory, composition, improvisation, harmony, etc.) for students of all levels and all ages. I have already had students from 6 years old to 74. I believe that the most important thing is that the students manage to find the motivation to practice regularly with the pleasure of progressing. //METHOD// The most common is the use of songs that the student chooses and take advantage of this to work on more general concepts of music and the guitar which are important to acquire a solid base without bad habits. For more advanced students the learning process is determined together by setting personal goals. The teaching method is totally focused on the individual needs of each student. Students with any level of knowledge in music (self-taught, beginners, advanced ...) are accepted. //INTERVIEW// 01 - Since when did you develop a passion for music and more particularly for your favourite instrument? - I became interested in the guitar at the age of ten. I had a friend who played "Blackbird" music by The Beatles and I was fascinated. From there, I started to study and I continue to learn today. 02 - What music can you listen to on repeat with the same pleasure (and without going crazy)? - Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. 03 - Tell us about the most difficult or amazing lesson you have given! - It would be a class where I have to explain the major and minor tonality and all its variants in one hour of class. But I will get there! 04 - In your opinion, what is the most complicated instrument to master and why? - It was impossible to answer. Each person has different predispositions. For me to play the piano at a high level would be complicated for the need for independence of the right and left hands. In this sense, the guitar is easier. 05 - What are, for you, the keys to success (apart from those of Sol and Fa)? - CONSTANCE, it's always better to practice a little every day than a lot once in a while. PATIENCE, learning an instrument takes time. You have to learn to coordinate the body and the brain and take new paths from time to time. And the most important : DON'T BE AFRAID OF MAKING MISTAKES, to learn it is essential to make mistakes and this should not be a reason to stop practising, on the contrary, it should be a motivation to improve. 06 - Name 3 musicians with whom you would dream of jamming in a bar at 2 a.m. and tell us why! - Tigran Hamasyan, Reinier Baas, Avishai Cohen (bassist) 07 - An anecdote to tell in relation to your job or your schooling (and not necessarily the party you had after entering the Conservatory)? - When I started giving lessons (I was 17), I had a 10-year-old student, when I suggested things to do, he looked me directly in the eye and said: No! But with patience, after a while, I managed to make a connection with him and at the end of the 3 years he played the guitar very well and we became friends. Now he is more or less 25 years old. 08 - What is the little touch that makes you a special teacher adored by all his students? - I am very patient and I always find the best way to explain for each student.
