MUSIC FROM THE SOUTH OF THE WORLD - Culture and Folklore

Folklore from the south of the world – Music Lesson

I am Chilean and I am fan and player of the music of the southern cone: Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Specifically I can help you learn tango, cueca, milonga, murga, boleros and tonadas. To a lesser extent I can help to learn Afro-Peruvian and bossa nova.

The lessons I offer can include musical practice, rhythms, progressions and typical melodies, as well as the study of the history of the musical genres and the culture associated with them.

If you want to nurture your career as a musician with other genres or if you are an amateur musician with an interest in music from the south of the world, these lessons are for you. If you are not a musician and simply want to approach the study of the culture, I can also provide books, articles and videos relating to it.

I would love to contribute to the further dissemination of this folklore that I love so much.

Extra information

My music lessons focus on practice and exploration rather than theory.

About Me

I am passionate about the Hispanic culture. I am convinced that one learns best through cultural integration. I enjoy Spanish music, cinema, literature, philosophy, and I believe I have the background to provide the convenient approach to each student.

My mother is a language teacher so my education was very rigorous grammatically.
I like to explore the possibilities of the language, from traditional formal use to contemporary, colloquial or street use.

I have a vocation as a teacher, I enjoy interacting with people and helping others. I am good at working with children as well as young people and adults of all ages and genders. I thrive very well in a multicultural environment.

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.

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.

Private music theory lessons - musical training
Having studied the horn at the Brussels Conservatory, I offer music theory / musical training courses for all ages from 7 years old, for levels ranging from beginner to first year of conservatory. I am now a student in psychology at UGent, and I intensively continue music (horn and cello) in parallel.

Bastien
Solfège all levels / Musical Theory all levels admited
[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, ..)

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 (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.

Cours de violon et theorie musical à Bruxelles et alentours
Le cours du violon dure 1h / 1h30 normalement, cela dépend du niveau et des nécessités ou préférences de l'élève. Je voudrais travailler de deux manières différentes: d'une part, nous pouvons travailler sur les aspects techniques de l'instrument; par ailleurs, on peut travailler sur le répertoire et la musicalité. J'essaie d'adapter ma façon d'enseigner à l'élève, en pensant toujours à mon expérience en tant qu'étudiant, musicien professionnel et enseignant, toujours pour aider l'élève à s'améliorer et à se sentir bien en apprenant. Je donne aussi des cours de solfège, d'harmonie et d'analyse de la musique, car c'est une bonne base pour les musiciens et aide à comprendre la structure et le fonctionnement de la musique. Les cours peuvent être en espagnol, anglais et français.

Paola
Private lessons of violin, viola, and/or music theory
As a violinist in higher education at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, I intend to pursue a professional career as a violinist, as well as as a teacher. Adoring to share my passion for music, I have been teaching the violin to different children, teenagers and adults for 3 years now. I am particularly interested in teaching different profiles of young artists, in order to help them develop their knowledge and skills. Whatever the level of the student, I always adapt as much as possible to his level and his rhythm. Always wanting to keep the pleasure of playing, I take the time to discuss with the student his projects, musical desires, motivations... The notion of sharing and communication is very important to me: music is above all a pleasure and a sharing between us. Remaining attentive to my student, it is essential for me to teach and to make him progress with things that he likes and that makes him want to share in music. Having a classical training since the age of 6, I also have expertise in world music (especially South American), as well as in jazz and contemporary music. I am therefore of course very open to playing and teaching any style of music.

Chiara
Violin - play beautiful music and learn new skills in a fun and healthy way! French, English, Italian, Spanish
In my classes I aim to transmit first of all my passion and love for music. I like to prepare a personalized programme adapted to the level and exigencies of each pupil. I also aim to include some violin duos, to be played with me during the lessons, as I believe playing with other musicians is one of the best ways to enjoy music and learn useful musical skills at the same time. Music classes are a really fulfilling experience as both teacher and pupil learn from each other and enjoy beautiful music! Another essential factor in my classes is correct and natural posture while playing, to let music heal our souls instead of hurting our bodies! ;) I have been practicing Yoga for a few years, and have experienced the importance of good posture and targeted light stretching, especially for younger players in a phase of growth and change. I like to help pupils to develop good technical skills in a fun way, always applying technique to beautiful music and keeping in mind that technique is nothing but a means of expressing ourselves through music. I give lessons in English, French, Italian and Spanish. Hope to see you soon :) Chiara

Jurij
Classical and contemporary saxophone for beginners, intermediate and advanced
In my course I offer a good understanding of the saxophone for beginners, intermediate and advanced players, techniques that you can use to improve your playing style and general knowldege about music and music history. I am open to all the musical styles and I like to discover new types of music. My goal is to allow the student to express themselves as they want and to support their ideas as much as possible. I take beginners without any previous knowledge.

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.
