private cello lessons (cours particuliers de violoncelle).

L’apprentissage d'une instrument musicale est accessible à tous! Aucune experience ou 'talent' nécessaire!
Salut, je m’appelle Ali. J’ai un diplôme de Masters de violoncelle. Diplômée de la New York University et en pédagogie de la méthode Suzuki à la School for Strings de New York, j’enseigne depuis 15 ans.

Ma methode se base sur l’apprentissage de la musique comme on apprends une langue. Au coeur, c’est un system qui est comparable à l’apprentissage de la langue maternelle— une approche efficace, naturelle et amusante. J'adapte les cours pour les enfants dés leur plus jeune age (à partir de 3 ans) et les adultes, ainsi que le style du musique vous voulez apprendre (classique, pop, folk).

En anglais et français.
Sur zoom ou en personne (Ixelles/Saint-Gilles).

Learning a musical instrument is available to everyone! No experience or 'talent' is necessary.
Hello, my name is Ali. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in cello performance. I studied at New York University and received my pedagogical training in the Suzuki method at School for Strings in New York. I have been teaching for more than 15 years.

My teaching method is based on learning music as one learns a language, by listening and repeating. This approach is efficient, natural, and fun. In your lessons, you will learn and improve your technique, sight-reading, basic music theory knowledge, practice methods, phrasing, and interpretation.

Children are welcome to begin from age 3. As well as adults starting from any age.

-Taught in English or French
-Live lessons (St-Gilles/Ixelles) or on zoom

Don't hesitate to ask any questions!

Piano Lessons and Music Theory Introduction lessons
I'm a pianist currently studying at the Koninklijk Conservatorium of Brussels offering piano lessons to anyone interested in starting with piano to more advanced pianists as well! With some of my students we play classical, pop or even movie soundtracks, so I always adapt my teaching to the student and his motivations/aspirations. With students who haven't played piano before, I also offer introductory theory lessons, so they can really understand music and harmony from the start of their musical development!

Xavier
Guitar lessons for kids, teens and adults
Guitar teacher for many years, I am passionate about jazz, blues, folk and fingerpicking. My classes address in the greatest relaxation, the bases of these different styles. Chaining chords in a fluid way, exploring different rhythms, correctly placing a melody, trying improvisation (jazz, blues, rock), developing finger-playing techniques (classical or folk), are all elements at the center of learning. These are deepened by notions of musical theory and / or solfeggio. Teacher trained in the "Arc-en-sons" method, I also teach children from 4 years Classes are for Beginner and Intermediate levels. Individual lessons (20, 30, 45 or 60 minutes). Group lessons (60 or 90 minutes). Possibility of collective workshops (3h, min 4 participants). Hope to meet you!

Marie
Cello lessons for all levels, teacher graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels
My name is Marie, I am 28 years old and I graduated from a Masters in cello at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. The cello is my passion, my profession, my life companion. I have been teaching for several years. I have at heart to transmit my interest for this instrument; this is why I continue to train within the conservatory. I spent a year in Denmark for a master's degree in education. An exciting year in a country where empathy is given a major role in teaching and where learning is based on the latest discoveries in neuroscience. I would like to evolve as a teacher by feeding on the pedagogies of the Nordic countries. Beginners, intermediates, advanced, I adapt to the age and needs of each. Playing a musical instrument requires a lot of concentration and involvement. I want to bring this taste for rigor, which is not opposed to fun or creativity, while respecting the rhythm of each student. I see the "classroom" as a laboratory: a place where we test, where we make mistakes, where we question ourselves ... because I think that it is the curiosity specific to each one that is the best progression tool. I offer private cello lessons at my home or at the students' homes. The price of the course is adjustable according to the trip. Do not hesitate to contact me if you want more information. Hope to meet you !

François
Trumpet school in Brussels
New trumpet school in Brussels whose teaching method is unique in Belgium. It is based on the student's memory technique (visual, auditory, bodily). We are all different and it is not the pupil who must adapt to the pedagogical project but it is this one which must be thought according to him. This method is also based on the flourishing of music. Our courses are not limited to the learning of the instrument as such, we place great emphasis on the assimilation of music by the body. For this we train the student in body rhythm and we include outings, among other sports, in our program. The school's teachers are specialized in various fields: jazz, classical, instrument technique, improvisation technique,… which will allow the student to choose according to his desires and to meet his expectations. He will also benefit from personalized follow-up. Our courses are open to all levels. It is the student who will determine his schedules with his teacher. This flexibility will give him great freedom in the organization of his schedule. The school curriculum is spread over three years and will allow the student to acquire a knowledge of a large part of scales, rhythms, to develop his musical ear, a culture of the great moments of the music and to have a better knowledge of his body through the approach of rhythm and breathing. The prospects sought by our school for the pupil is that he can quickly be confronted with the happiness of playing in a group.

Valeriia
Cello lessons for children (English, Russian, Ukrainian)
I’m an enthusiastic Cellist from Ukraine specialized in teaching children. I have a pedagogy education from the Dnipro Academy of Music and want to show your children how much fun it is to learn to play cello, learning the right technique and feeling the music. In Ukraine I studied with Artem Poludennyi, one of the best Cellists of Ukraine, who performs as Soloist with all major Ukrainian orchestras and internationally. Here in Belgium I currently complete my formation at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with the famous Cellist Jeroen Reuling. I teach at home in Ixelles or can come to your house in Ixelles, Uccle or Brussels Center. Despite my focus on teaching children, I’m also happy to accept adult students. Don’t feel shy to contact me if you have questions. Valeriia I will be a hundred cellos, all in one. I will play – I will sing, I'll have fun. I'll describe a murky rainforest, with the rhythm in my soul. I'll be a thunderous storm, It's my only goal. And when I'm done with my few songs, People stand: applause. I'll smile and bow down with thanks, It's my only cause.
