About Me

Born in Klaipeda, LT, Andrius had his first musical experiences at the age of 12 when he was exposed to classical music and began playing the Birbyne, a Lithuanian folk instrument. He received his first saxophone at the age of 17 and enrolled at the Klaipeda Stasys Simkus music high school where he was introduced to jazz by playing big band and Dixieland music. After 4 years of studying and performing in Lithuania, Andrius relocated to the Netherlands for one year of Erasmus studies at the Prince Claus Conservatorium in Groningen, then subsequently at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam where he received his Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Saxophone.
During his studies in Amsterdam, Andrius regularly performed with various jazz groups within Europe including several international competitions. In 2013, he won the Leiden Jazz Award with the Andrius Quartet and won the Public and Best Composition prize at Tremplin Jazz Avignon with the band Morgan Freeman in 2016.

Following his studies and a brief period in Copenhagen, he moved back to Amsterdam where he currently resides and is active in the experimental music scene throughout the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia, Spain, Italy and more.

I've being teaching saxophone, improvisation, theory music and clarinet (for beginners) for all ages and abilities for almost 10 years now and, depending on which path the student is looking for, I will be thrilled to share and pass on the knowledge I have acquired throughout my teaching and artistic career.

VOCAL TECHNIQUE FOR ALL TYPES OF MODERN SINGING, POP AND JAZZ SINGING LESSONS, VOCAL COACH, VOICE WORK.
Do you want to know the register of your voice? Can you sing the higher notes without hurting your voice? Learn how to do pass marks? Getting to have a powerful but also agile voice? I am a songwriter, pop and jazz singer, and voice teacher with 20 years of music experience. I offer singing lessons at all levels. My courses are addressed on the development of bodily and vocal awareness which helps to perceive and consider our body as a musical instrument. My teaching method is the result of the synthesis of my experience as a singer and the many and diverse study paths followed. The lesson is structured in two parts: the first half devoted to vocal technique, the second half to musical repertoire. The vocal technique that I propose is a basic technique for all types of modern singing: from postural education to the care of breathing, from the use of the abdominal muscles, to the emission of air to the cavities of resonance. From a repertoire perspective, the course will be modeled after the student's needs or interests, with an eye for the right attitude to hold while you sing and you are on a stage. I prefer pop and jazz, but I can work with any other modern genre. If the student wishes, I can give him notions of harmony and reading music. EDUCATION I studied song with Bruno De Franceschi (conductor and composer of contemporary classical music and musical theater). I studied vocal technique with the lyric singer David Sotgiu (pupil of Luciano Pavarotti), with the lyric singer Maria Grazia Pittavini (teacher at the Perugia Conservatory) and with Cinzia Spata (one of the most important Italian jazz vocal coaches). I studied jazz singing at the Perugia Conservatory with Marta Raviglia (one of the most important Italian jazz singing teachers) and privately with Cinzia Spata. I studied lyrical singing with Maria Grazia Pittavini. I studied pop and jazz piano with Manuel Magrini (one of the most talented young Italian jazz pianists), I studied jazz piano with Alessandro Bravo, jazz piano master at the Perugia Conservatory. I attended masterclasses relating to the world of singing and voice held by: Maria Pia De Vito (singer), Alejandro Saorin Martinez (voice craft method), Albert Hera (singer, vocal coach, circle song), Erika Biavati ( singer), Eleonora Bruni (singer), Catharina Kroeger (lyric singer), Amanda Tiffin (South African jazz singer), JD Walter (American jazz singer), Matteo Belli (actor and one of the most important Italian experts in voice search), Franco Fussi (one of the most important speech therapists in Italy), Roberta Mazzocchi (speech therapist). EXPERIENCE / QUALIFICATIONS I have 20 years of experience in music with around 200 concerts between festivals, theaters, clubs and premises, an album of songs, an EP, singles, collaborations with the world of theater, organization of musical events . I lead musical projects in the field of jazz and pop. The passion for singing and song has inevitably brought me closer to the world of education in which I work.

Bastien
Classical saxophone / contemporary / improvisational approach / harmonic understanding / basic solfège
Student at the Brussels Conservatory. From practical lessons to theoretical notions, I know how to adapt to the student and his interests to provide a course that really brings him the elements that will allow him to quickly flourish in the musical field. With already 3 years of course experience in non-profit organizations and in particular, I usually train students of all ages, beginners or more advanced. I am open to a large number of musical styles, current or old, focusing my thought on a "musical whole". I currently specialize in classical and contemporary saxophone but I am also very open to improvisation and live music such as jazz and the styles that derive from it, but also to electronic music. My final goal is to allow the student to express his ideas in music, and that he really evolves and flourishes in what pleases him. I take beginners without any knowledge of music theory. I am available in: * Brussels region from Monday to Thursday * Tournai region from Friday to Sunday.

Carlos Javier
Classical and modern guitar lessons! * Titled Professor with Higher Degree and Master's Degree *
In my classes, depending on the case, theory accompanies practice. We will focus on establishing the basics of guitar technique and adding elements little by little without frustrating learning. I will adapt to the student's tastes without problem, having as a goal their priorities, but without neglecting my advice for proper development. The important thing is that the initial learning process is as efficient as possible, to maintain interest and consistency in the practice of the instrument.
