Music Theory, History and Appreciation Courses

Music is my passion and career and I am offering introductory music appreciation classes as well as advanced courses in music theory and music history in Bruxelles, Saint-Gilles.

I perform in Brussels as a violinist and I have performed classical, early music, and contemporary music. I hold degrees in music from Stanford University and the Royal Conservatory in Brussels where I have a specialized training in musicology, composition, and historical music. I teach students with a mix of ear training and more traditional approaches to reading music and learning music theory. High quality lessons for the serious learner and an opportunity to practice English! In addition, I was a DJ with my own radio show in the Bay Area for 5 years! If you love music and want to engage more, you have come to the right place.


Extra information

Lessons at your home might be possible if you live in the Saint-Gilles/Ixelles are of Brussels or we go to a place with a good piano which is important for music theory courses.

Nate
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. We will talk about basic elements like the work of major / minor open chords, scales, ear development music and gradually go into the depth of certain styles such as blues, funk, jazz, bossa nova, samba, pop , rock to dissect other elements enriching the guitar playing. This progressive work put in place will consolidate the foundations for developing learning over time.

Bastien
Classical saxophone / contemporary / improvisational approach / harmonic understanding / basic solfège
Student at the Brussels Conservatory. 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 3 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 from Monday to Thursday * Tournai region from Friday to Sunday.

Guy
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.

Pierre

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.
