About Me

I am a Jazz, soul-pop saxophone player ...and a music teacher!

As a musician for as long as I can remember, I have always been keen to teach others what I have learned.

I am a saxophonist, songwriter, and soul-jazz singer. I have a classical piano training and I play drums too. This allows me to play along with my students and to surround them very early in an inspiring musical atmosphere.

To be beautiful, music must be conceived clearly and simply, whatever the musician's level. It is also quite simply that it must be taught and learned.

Education

Diploma of the academy of music theory and classical piano
I studied at the Brussels Conservatory with Steven Houben, and with Erwin Vann in the Dutch-speaking section. Private lessons with Kurt Van Herck.
Some lessons with Chris Potter in New York in 1999.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching in private schools and at home since 1993!

Here's a tiny professional bio of myself ;-)

LAURENT is a saxophone player, a singer-songwriter from Brussels,
mainly in the Soul Jazz idiom. Self-taught musician at first, he also learned with the best musicians around, from Brussels to New-York. For about 20 years, he’s been successfully directing his own projects, featuring the most soulful jazz musicians of Belgium and abroad. He played a major role in the great bands of Daniel Romeo and Marc Lelangue.
The free-lance part of his career let him play with names such as Fred Wesley, Boney M, George Mc Crae, Percy Sledge, and on a very special evening with James Brown.

VOCAL TECHNIQUE FOR ALL TYPES OF MODERN SINGING, POP AND JAZZ SINGING LESSONS, VOCAL COACH, VOICE WORK.
Do you want to know the register of your voice? Can you sing the higher notes without hurting your voice? Learn how to do pass marks? Getting to have a powerful but also agile voice? I am Italian, songwriter, pop and jazz singer and voice teacher with 20 years of experience in music. I offer singing lessons at all levels. My classes are addressed on the development of bodily and vocal awareness which helps to perceive and consider our body as a musical instrument. My teaching method is the result of the synthesis of my experience as a singer and the many and diverse study paths followed. The lesson is structured in two parts: the first half devoted to vocal technique, the second half to musical repertoire. The vocal technique that I propose is a basic technique for all types of modern singing: from postural education to the care of breathing, from the use of the abdominal muscles, to the emission of air to the cavities of resonance. From a repertoire perspective, the course will be modeled after the student's needs or interests, with an eye for the right attitude to hold while you sing and you are on a stage. I prefer pop and jazz, but I can work with any other modern genre. If the student wishes, I can give him notions of harmony and reading music. EDUCATION I studied song with Bruno De Franceschi (conductor and composer of contemporary classical music and musical theater). I studied vocal technique with the lyric singer David Sotgiu (pupil of Luciano Pavarotti), with the lyric singer Maria Grazia Pittavini (teacher at the Perugia Conservatory) and with Cinzia Spata (one of the most important Italian jazz vocal coaches). I studied jazz singing at the Perugia Conservatory with Marta Raviglia (one of the most important Italian jazz singing teachers) and privately with Cinzia Spata. I studied lyrical singing with Maria Grazia Pittavini. I studied pop and jazz piano with Manuel Magrini (one of the most talented young Italian jazz pianists), I studied jazz piano with Alessandro Bravo, jazz piano master at the Perugia Conservatory. I followed masterclasses and trainings relating to the world of singing and voice held by: Maria Pia De Vito (singer), Alejandro Saorin Martinez (voice craft / Estill method), Albert Hera (singer, vocal coach, circle song) , Erika Biavati (singer), Eleonora Bruni (singer), Catharina Kroeger (lyric singer), Amanda Tiffin (South African jazz singer), JD Walter (American jazz singer), Matteo Belli (actor and one of the most important Italian experts in voice research), Franco Fussi (one of the most important phoniatrists in Italy), Roberta Mazzocchi (speech therapist), one-year training in rhytmics and musical pedagogy at Institut Dalcroze in Brussels, three-month training in Gordon method for children between 0 and 6 years old. EXPERIENCE / QUALIFICATIONS I have 20 years of experience in music with around 200 concerts between festivals, theaters, clubs and premises, an album of songs, an EP, singles, collaborations with the world of theater, organization of musical events . I lead musical projects in the field of jazz and pop. The passion for singing and song has inevitably brought me closer to the world of education in which I work.
