    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Grand Master International, French Champion and Master Coach of the International Chess Federation, I invite you to discover the wonders of chess.
    The game of chess goes through the centuries and still retains all its attractiveness. Contrary to popular belief, even the computer has not managed to lift all its mysteries.
    The benefits of learning are numerous and for everyone. It helps to develop concentration, sharpen attention, reinforce logical thinking and the ability to analyze complex situations.
    I will make you benefit from my pedagogical experience (over 20 years) forged during my classes for children, seniors, beginners or advanced players or people requiring an adapted approach.

    Violin for Everyone - Learn to play the most beautiful instrument in the world!
    Hello there! I offer highly individualised and very enjoyable lessons to anyone who wants to challenge themselves with the violin. Do not be fooled - it's a tough instrument to play well! With my guidance and special interest in postural health, you will quickly learn the basics with some regular effort. I especially encourage students to meet with other students in order to get to know each other on a human level. An alum of the ABRSM, Suzuki, American and European conservatory systems (Masters with Magna cum Laude), and relentlessly studying to become better and better every week, I filter through 'The Book' to find the most effective and efficient way for the individual learner. We will find out what sounds appeal to you, and teach your unique 'voice' to come out. With a little technique and a little good taste, there's no knowing where your violin can take you! Come yourself, or with a friend or even with your child and explore the infinite depths of real music-making! (Pssst: It's never really what we expect in the beginning!) Lessons can be carried out in English, Italian, French :)
