Learn how to play or to advance in violin with a professional

Tailoring my teaching approaches to each individual, I am confident in helping each student reach their desired goals with the violin. Whether a student is a complete beginner, or picking up the violin after many years of not playing, or a serious musician, I offer fun, encouraging, and enlightening lessons.

I also teach all styles of music genres - from Baroque/Classical/Romantic, to Folk, to Jazz, to Contemporary, and very happy to teach a broad spectrum of styles, or to focus on just one. I also have a specialism in teaching adults.

Extra information

Must have their own violin, and be prepared to buy suggested sheet music prior to lessons

Learn how to play the Accordion and have fun together! From beginner to advanced!
Professional accordion lessons, suitable for both beginners and those already familiar with the instrument! Basic requirement: having fun making music together! We will work on setting up the posture, getting to know this magnificent instrument and all its potential, up to its full representation in classical music (Bach, Scarlatti, Frescobaldi, etc.), tango (Astor Piazzolla), French music (Richard Galliano) and much more. Obviously, there will also be constructive and creative work on technique, which is indispensable for mastering the accordion in the best possible way and for being able to tackle all the pieces that will be studied with greater musical freedom! Lessons will also focus on listening to the accordion repertoire and its greatest performers, so as to keep abreast of the instrument's possibilities and to nurture the passion for music and the desire to play more and more!

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.

Eleni
Violin lessons for children and adults. Fun classes for the little ones.
Hello, my name is Eleni and I am a violin teacher and violinist. Having taught the violin for 20 years and knowing in depth different instrumental techniques and different teaching methods, I can adapt my teaching to the needs, age and character of each student. In addition, my educational background combined with the unique experience and knowledge given to me by my relatively recent motherhood and my love for children and other human beings, has led me to pursue positive teaching with empathy towards the student who aims to make him happy, to love music and to acquire a solid basis for his overall development! I am also able to teach with the Suzuki method. I teach children from the age of 3 and even adults. I organize concerts for my students at least twice a year. Classes are in French, English and Greek. For more information do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

Sylvain
Cours de flutes, classical, improvisation, world music ...
Graduated in France for a classical training, I offer courses of flutes (from piccolo to octobasse via bass and viola!). The content of the courses will be adapted to the needs of each one. I practice improvisation for quite a few years, the Brazilian music (choro) is one of my specialties. I also play in the French Flutes Orchestra, and I share with pleasure my practices and sound research such as multiphonic, flute and voice, circular breathing, whistle tones and other flatterzung! Music theory will be taught naturally if necessary. I can give classes in French, Portuguese (Brazil), English, Dutch.

Carlos
Clarinet and bass clarinet lessons in Brussels for everyone.
I am a professional clarinetist graduated with distinction at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels (Master Degree in Clarinet) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from the Music Conservatory of Valencia (Spain). Currently I am studying for a Master's Degree in Bass Clarinet, so we can combine both instruments in my lessons. I teach students of all ages and levels. In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination. The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes. On top of playing, I can also offer lessons on harmony, form analysis and counterpoint that focus on understanding the structure of music. My lessons will already include many different aspects of the music being taught but there is the option of focusing the theoretical or the practical. i am looking forward to teaching you music!

Nazanin
Classical piano lessons, music theory and musical culture
Learning to play the piano is like learning another language, it is the language of the body in harmony with the music. I teach my students to have a musical thought to better understand the technique and I work on body gestures to make it easier to adapt to the instrument. I can learn to read and write music, have notions of music theory, play classical music, songs, movie music, ... I have a Master in Solo Piano and a Master in Chamber Music from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. I also have a musical diploma of the regional conservatory of Paris. I've been teaching regularly for 8 years. I have experience with children and adults.

Violin lessons adapted to your desires in Brussels!
Violinist holder of the DEM, I offer lessons adapted to your desires, whatever your age, whether simply for fun or with the aim of going further (preparation for competitions, support...) I remain at your disposal to help you, it is with pleasure that I will teach you the violin!

Chiara
Violon, musique - 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 and technical skills at the same time. 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 targeted repertoire 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.

Mélina
Private lessons of Violin and Musical Formation.
Violinist from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, and the IMEP of Namur, I give violin lessons at all levels, all ages, from 5 years old for children. With several years of experience in teaching the violin, my lessons are for everyone, whatever your desires. I adapt my method according to the wish as well as the age of the student, and starting an instrument as an adult should not be a brake. Graduated in Musicology from La Sorbonne as well as from the ULB, I also offer support courses in Musical Training, History of Music and Analysis. An instrument lesson usually lasts one hour. If necessary, I can cut the time between Violin and Musical Training / History. My rates are 29/hour at my home (Schaerbeek), 35 if I travel.

Inés
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.
