Piano Lessons for Levels Beginner-Advanced, Classical and Contemporary styles

I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.

About Me

Music is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others—particularly my students! I teach a variety of styles, although my own training is classical. Generally, I choose music that fits the student’s level and personality—every student is very different! With that in mind, I emphasize good technique and skills, so that the playing experience can be with a certain amount of ease and enjoyment. I also love to learn new pieces (modern and Classical) from my students themselves, so music requests from my students are encouraged :)

Bachelor of Music: Piano Performance (Graduating Summa Cum Laude) at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, TX, USA

Great, knowledgeable teacher who was very patient with my daughter!
I had my first lesson today and I was immediately struck with the feeling that I am in the presence of a maestro in Piano playing, a professor in teaching and an extremely patient pedagogue. It was like Lydia knew me for years and instantaneously detected my strengths and my weaknesses in my piano playing and practice. I am an adult student and I highly recommend Lydia for all ages and all levels. An exceptional teacher that provides and exceptional lesson experience.
Lydia is a very good teacher, and I am sure I will learn a lot from her. She is furthermore very kind and very patient!
Awesome classes! I hiighly recommended Lydia as a teacher
Great lessons!

Piano lessons to learn how to play the piano well for all levels
In my course I'm offering to share my knowledge and passion with you, whether your preference lies with classical or otherwise. I work best with more advanced students to be able to go more in depth but would be happy to welcome any level of playing in my class. In a way I'd like to think that everything is in connection with everything else. A musician is not only a musician, but also a painter, poet, dancer (though in my case that last one can't be taken literally) and even a scientist. Why do I say this? Because I can teach you how to observe and learn from these connections which will improve your musicality, problem solving skills, technical skills, memorisation and many other aspects of your music playing - and life in general. Welcome to my class!

Stefan
Piano lessons for acquiring and/or improving piano skills
In my class, I teach piano in a way that allows you to make progress on your own. "Don't give a man a fish, instead teach him how to fish," is the idea here. My methods include, besides basics, approaches to expressing your own musicality, stable memorization, practice habits and efficiency, technical ease, focus exercises, body awareness, and stage fright. Hence, I am best suited for intermediate and advanced students that have the desire to either study piano on a collegiate level or make significant improvements for themselves. I would like to add at this point that I have a special affinity for the concert etudes by Frédéric Chopin. However, I am perfectly happy to start with students from the very beginning as well and regardless, I will adjust to my student's needs upon mutual agreement. My free times that I listed as available are a rough estimate, lesson times are normally negotiable.

Method of Independence for The Modern Marimaplayer
I want to make the marimba student aware of the different sounds that a marimba can produce, by using those sounds I want to improve his technique and teach him to phrasing. All this from relaxation, because many percussionists are not aware of how much tension there is in their body when they play, and in which places. We also look at the different techniques that are possible on the marimba and we look for which one suits you best. I teach both beginners and advanced students.
