Creative Music Expression - Understanding Music
Would you like to approach the creative writing of music? Would you like to fully understand the languages and the way music works? Can I help you! Like any form of creative expression, music has its rules, rooted in perception and in the context around us. We can work on fundamental concepts of musical expression, valid in all genres and also immerse ourselves in the area that interests you most (baroque, classical, pop, jazz ...) My course has a non-academic approach and it is open to all: whether you are professionals who want to deepen their musical knowledge, or you are amateurs or beginners we can build the perfect course for you and that will allow you to express yourself or simply to better understand the music you are listening to. The only thing I highly recommend is knowing how to read music, because it allows us to go much faster. If you are not able, we can start there.

Creative/Experimental Writing in English (Fiction or Poetry).
These classes are meant and designed to explore the burgeoning potentials of not just imagination, but also literary flair. The strengths will be stretched to their fullest reach, while the weakness will be worked upon together via different trials and errors. The classes will be tailored according to the needs of the individual, and according to their comfort and concerns. Editing procedures will also be thorough and perfected to produce a completed piece in the end. My tendency is to take up the experimental, self-cognizance, almost self-improvement/exploration methods. I have previously worked with various television production houses as a creative writer, with art galleries as an art critique, and often as an occult culture archivist. I have been published both- for my prose and poetry.

Discussion of a Book, a Short-Story, a Poem, or a Movie.
In this class, we analyse and evaluate works of narrative art together. This is how it works: Before each meeting we agree on a short-story or a poem to read (or listen to), or a movie to watch in preparation for the session. If it's a book, it has to be one which we've both read in the past. We can easily determine our mutual reads through apps like Goodreads or Library Thing. The aim of this course is to exercise your capacity for critical and evaluative thinking. By the end of this course, you should be able to produce (in speech or in writing) a coherent and methodical review of a book of fiction, poetry, or a film.

Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you
Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

Poetry: The Art of Attention! Generative prompts, craft discussions, and the chance to workshop your writing.
We will look outside ourselves to practice noticing in the context of daily life—and noticing what we notice, which will tell us something about ourselves. “Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer,” Simone Weil famously wrote. Absolutely unmixed attention is also one way of thinking about poetry. Presence is a portal. It can feel nearly impossible to stay with what is, now, here. As the poet Marie Howe puts it: “[T]o resist metaphor is very difficult because you actually have to endure the thing itself, which hurts us for some reason.” In this course we will call on metaphor, but also read and write poems that are deeply invested in looking around to see what is here, now.

Learn how to make documentaries and television reportages
Hello, I'm Sam! I've been making documentaries and TV shows for 8 years. I've made dozens of (short) documentaries and TV shows. My main focus is directing, research & interviewing. I can teach you everything there is to know about making documentaries. I studied documentary directing at the Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema & Sound in Brussels and started working as director right after I graduated. The lessons will cover everything you need to know about how to make a documentary. The idea & research fase, conceptualisation of the idea, interview techniques, filming techniques, the importance of sound, the editing process and ways to fund your film will all talked about in great detail. I'm looking forward to teaching all the things I've learned over the last years so you will be able to make your own documentaries or to gather the knowhow so you could start working as a (freelance) director as well and make your living out of your love for film!
