Music lessons in piano, cello, harpsichord, for all ages and levels.

Lessons in piano, historical and modern cello, and harpsichord, with program and repertoire, adapted to the goals and speed of each student, whether young, not so young, or adult, for a general introduction to these instruments, for preparation for high music education, as a supplementary aid for exams in music academies, or for a hobby, or for amateur group music-making, or for developing qualities as concentration, coordination, discipline, expressibility, awareness of styles and music history.
In my teaching, I try to teach the students how to teach themselves, because the best teacher for you is yourself.
Lessons can be combined (+30min.) with theory/solfege and history of music, if the student wishes.
For my private students, I organize concerts 1-2 per year.
Fluent in English and Russian and Bulgarian, intermediate in Nederlands und Deutsch.
I have been teaching for more than 15 years, privately, in Brussels, and in New York in the past, and probably more than 100 students.
I am a graduate of Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, in baroque cello and harpsichord, but I play also modern cello and piano.

Extra information

Usually, I prefer to teach at the student's location. But for those, for whom this is not possible, I could teach in another location near Dansaert, the center of Brussel, depending on the availability of that place, but this will increase the price.

Location

About Me

Playing on musical instruments is one of the most efficient methods for development of intelligence, discipline, concentration, sensitivity, expressibility, especially for the young. My teaching is for those, who want to develop these qualities. For more intermediate level of students I use the repertoire they play in practice to teach analysis of music, harmony, and also a historical perspective to the works they study, recognition of styles. I guide my students to self-analyse their playing, to define difficulties, and work out by themselves solutions - how to become with the time their own teachers.
For the better progressing students, I organize small concerts.
Piano, harpsichord, modern cello, baroque cello, music theory (harmony).

Education

Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, Master's degree Baroque cello, Bachelor's degree Harpsichord. Master's degree in violoncello from Bulgarian Academy of Music.

Experience / Qualifications

Teaching private piano and violoncello more than 10 years in Brussel. 1 year teaching in two music schools in New York, USA.

Aangename, rustige en professionele pianoleraar. Mijn dochter is heel tevreden. Ze voelde zich meteen op haar gemak, wat haar liefde voor de piano nog meer heeft gevoed.
Boris weet goed waar hij mee bezig is, kan alles duidelijk uitleggen en geeft op een heel aangename manier les.

Nate
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.

Guy
Clarinet Lessons, in any style: classical music, jazz, folk and avantgarde
Clarinet is one of the most versatile and coolest instruments that ever existed: classical music, jazz, folk music around the world, just name it! After years of training, studying and professional activity, I learned you have to be versatile in different styles. I offer clarinet and bass clarinet lessons in any style you'd like to learn: clarinet technique itself, classical clarinet and/ how to apply music theory to your performance skills, jazz improvisation... I'll be very happy to help you to find out your voice and language through the instrument through a very creative and transversal methodology. My experience in teaching, orchestral performance, solo performance and chamber music performance is huge. If you want to know me more don't hesitate to ask for my CV or media. I also have a solid experience in Alexander Technique which I apply to my performance skills and my lessons.

Ignazio
Guitar lessons in Brussels with music professor Ignazio
I am Ignazio, professional guitarist with a Master in Jazz and an aggregation at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, a 5 year Diploma at the International Music Academy in Milan, 6 years classical guitar, a Bachelor in General Management specializing in the music market . I have many years of experience in teaching and numerous concerts. I am also sponsored by Ibanez, DV Mark and Gruv Gear. I teach Rock, Jazz, Blues and Acoustic guitar lessons in Brussels. My teaching method is personal, but very organized and accurate. It will allow you to progress quickly and intelligently, and avoid wasting time on boring and unimportant details. You will find yourself in a cheerful and pleasant environment that makes it possible to learn with pleasure. The courses are open to both beginners and professionals who want to improve their skills. I speak English, French and Italian. The lessons take place in my studio in Sint-Agatha-Berchem. Lessons via Skype are also possible.

Bastien
Harmony and Classical Writing
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.

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.

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.

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.

Oren
Professional composer with a doctorate in music gives composition and harmony lessons for all levels.
It is my passion to help composition students find their personal voice. I offer instrumental composition lessons (composition for instruments like violin, piano, trumpet, etc.) and electronic composition lessons. I also offer harmony lessons. My classes are open to all ages and all levels!

Lucien
Piano, music theory, musical awakening: beginner / intermediate or advanced course
I give piano lessons at all levels and at all ages (from 5 years old) with or without reading notes. I travel for you or you can also come to my place (electric piano in Brussels) European district. I always plan a small project in the year to play for an audience (concert / video / ...)

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.

Bohuslava
Piano lessons - All Levels - Tutor with a Master's Degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy
My lessons aim to transfer the joy of music, develop musical imagination and creativity together with the gradual improvement of technic according to age and individual dispositions so that playing an instrument is a musical experience and pleasure for all. Having a Master's Degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy, I give my courses not as a side-activity but as a profession.
