Classical-contemporary saxophone (Included: approach to improvisation, harmonic understanding and basic music theory)

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (spe. Classical/contemporary saxophone), I know how to easily mix practical courses and theoretical notions, in order to adapt to the student as well as to his interests to provide a course that really brings him the elements that will allow him to quickly flourish in the musical field.

With 7 years of teaching experience in ASBL and in particular, I usually train students of all ages, beginners as well as advanced.

I am open to a large number of musical styles, current or old, focusing my artistic approach on an "all musical".

I currently specialize in mastering the Saxophone, on a classical and contemporary repertoire, but I am also very open to improvisation and live music such as jazz (swing, bossa, fusion, ...) but also to electronic styles (D&B, Dubstep, Lofi, House,..)

My ultimate goal is to allow the student to express his ideas in music, and that he evolves and flourishes in what he really likes.

I take beginners without any knowledge of music theory.

I am available in:
* Brussels region.
* Region of Tournai occasionally.
* Online, via webcam lessons

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been passionate about saxophones ever since I saw and heard Lisa Simpson play on television.
So I started to learn the instrument before my hands were big enough to be able to hold it fully.

Since then, I have explored many musical universes, having a culture mainly oriented towards Jazz music and of course classical music, which I am currently studying at the Brussels Conservatory in a professional manner. I am interested in all musical styles without distinction, in order to take the best of each universe to transpose it into a music that I wish the most sincere and rich ... I work for example a lot on electronic music coupled with acoustic sounds, or French music projects with texts, through jazz fusion between two sessions of contemporary music. I try to mix my various knowledge to look for new things.

Finally, I love meeting musicians, whatever their age, their musical intentions or their level; I love to teach simply, because I teach is to share knowledge, and sharing is the very essence of music!
My course does not require any notion of music theory, because it is based on listening and practice.
However, if the student wants to deepen the theory, this is also widely possible.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I started my musical training at the Conservatory of Tournai, I graduated to the maximum level in saxophone, advanced music theory and in classical writing and analysis.

I am now finishing my Bachelor degree in classical and contemporary saxophone at the Koninklijke Conservatorium in Brussels, with in parallel a second course about to culminate in harmony and classical writing, also at KcB.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have lived a lot in very diverse formations, ranging from street groups such as Brass bands or other fanfares from the Balkans, through intimate experimental jazz trios, but also by larger orchestral groups, of instruments classical winds, Big bands, cover groups and even many contemporary quartets or children's music! ...

In short, I like diversity and I am convinced that there is a way to approach music in an absolute way, to be able to stick to all possible styles of music if we clearly identify the peculiarities and the spirit.

It is this key to universal understanding of music that I try to transmit through my lessons which, at the choice of the student of course, can switch from one style to another, from pop to classical, from rock to rock. jazz, rap to electro, ...

Je suis débutant saxo tenor. Premiere leçon tres bien et sympathique Je continue.
I just had my first class today. It was really great. I admire Bastien for the patience and words of encouragement. I will definitely continue our adventure with sax and the music!
Great prof, Bastien knows his material really well and knows very good exercices to improve technique.
Mon papa était très contente :)
Bastien is a great teacher!, as well as a very nice person. It was my first time with the saxophone (not with music in general) and at the end of the lesson I could already play (badly of course) a little song.
...
[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, ..)
This applied music theory course is for any passionate musician, regardless of level. It aims to broaden his musical knowledge and abilities by understanding music as a whole. The goal is to be able to decode and understand how a music (not only of classical style, but also pop, jazz, rock, electro, ...) was composed, and to be able to use interesting harmonies oneself. and solid in a personal composition / production. It is made up of two main topics: * Harmony (building chords, understanding chord diagrams, learning to Harmonize a given melody, the possibility or not of using these Harmonies in a given style, etc.). But also understand the key, how to build a scale, how to navigate between different keys, how to transform a classic chord suite into another style? Harmony is a course open to all and all levels, no prerequisites to have. Any passionate musician will find interest in it, that's guaranteed. * Writing is a much more targeted course, which is already an introduction to classical composition. In this branch, we will develop the rules of classical writing (parallel fifths and octaves, false relations etc, ...) within the framework of an exercise based on a given melody or bass (in the first case it will be necessary to invent harmonization and compose a bass, in the second, it will be necessary to invent the harmonization and the melody). This course can also be used by academy or conservatory students who wish to prepare for the writing exam, or simply to deepen their knowledge.

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.

Ngoc
Piano lesson for beginners and advanced students - all age levels
I am a Vietnamese pianist and I would love to share nice music to you with a friendly environment. I have finished my Master in piano specialisation in Royal Conservatory of Liège, and now I'm following piano accompaniment in Royal Conservatory of Brussels. Giving concerts, making some recording, working in both classical and contemporary music, and with more than 10 years of experience in teaching, I would be happy to share all my knowledge and enjoy the music together!

Bianca
Conservatory graduate gives private lessons in modern singing and jazz
The method I use in my singing lessons is divided into two main parts: the technique and the repertoire. In vocal technique, we will work on specific aspects such as the anatomy of the phonatory apparatus, its functioning, breathing, vocal emission, extension exercises, vocal register, vocal agility and vocal hygiene. . In the repertoire, we will mainly work on songs that help and support the development of everyone's artistic personality, and we will choose songs that can help the student acquire new vocal language and vocal cues. With me you can work on songs in Italian (I am a native Italian speaker), in English (I graduated from the Brussels Conservatory in English under the direction of my singing teacher David Linx), in French and in Spanish (languages that I studied, spoke and sung) and finally in Portuguese (a language that I studied a lot thanks to the Brazilian music that I sang and from which I learned a lot). My method is for anyone of any age who has decided to use their voice consciously, so not only singers but also actors, teachers and anyone who has to use the voice in their profession. With children, the method will focus more on rhythm, singing and musical awakening. In addition, we will explore topics such as complementary piano (piano accompaniment with voice), songwriting (writing your first songs or helping you write and write an unreleased song), recording and producing songs. a cover or your own original song. In short, there are so many things to learn about voice and music that the avenues are endless and I am always looking for them, constantly updating and with great passion that I can't wait to pass on to you.

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
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.

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.
