    Jazz-Rock-Blues-Classical Guitar, Improvisation & Music Theory

    “Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue” (Plato)

    I think of music as a discipline, but it also is the most strong language we know as human being. Whatever your level is, you’ll always get something out from music, and that’s why, in my opinion, our main goal should always be, as students and musicians, just to have fun, because that’s when music works.

    These lessons are for everyone who wants to develop his instrumental skills and musical knowledge: during the lessons we’ll have the opportunity not only to work on all the theoretical aspects but we’ll also put focus on the meaning of what we do and why do we do it.

    The main subjects are improvisation, instrumental techniques, harmony development, music theory, how to obtain the best sound, transcriptions, music history, and of course we'll go through with any kind of request from the student.

    With a conscious education, everyone can have his own musical language and his own ideas, and my job we’ll just be to make the student able to feel free and enjoy your music.

    About Me

    Rocco is a guitar player and composer, born in 1996 in the province of Lecce, in South Italy.

    After a first musical experience with electric bass, he started studying jazz guitar at the age of 14, having individual lessons for five years in his town. During this period he had the opportunity to attend several masterclasses and confront himself with some of the greatest Italian jazz players (Bebo Ferra, Paolo Fresu, Luca Alemanno, Franco Cerri and more), and he had also different experiences in other environments (Umbria Jazz Clinics in 2013 and the Five Weeks program at the Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2014, for which he won a scholarship).

    In 2015 Rocco won a contest for young jazz musicians organized by the Locomotive Jazz Festival that gave him the opportunity to play opening concerts for great musicians such as Paolo Fresu, Omar Sosa, Daniele Di Bonaventura and more, and to record a live CD (the “Locomotive Jazz Compilation”) with the other winners of the contest.

    His primary language as a musician and guitar player is mostly jazz, but he always had the fortune to enjoy every kind of music: the most important influences come from every genre, from the modern classical music (Morton Feldman, Schoenberg, Stravinsky, etc..) to the jazz culture (Miles Davis, Bill Evans, Max Roach, Chet Baker, John Scofield) until all the rock music from 60s’ and 70s’ (Pink Floyd, Doors, Grateful Dead, Velvet Underground, Syd Barrett etc..) including finally also reggae, hip-hop and modern electronic music.

    In 2015 he decided to study guitar abroad, attending the Bachelor program at the Artez School of Music in Arnhem. Here he had the opportunity to develop his own ideas and to play in several collaborations with both students and teachers.

    His goal as a composer and player is to get rid of all the labels and genres in music and just being influenced by sound and vibes, exploring new techniques and ideas that could express at their best his own concept of music.

    Singing(pop, soul, blues, classical and more), theory and piano lessons
    Hi! I'm Jo and I offer lessons in singing, piano and music theory. I studied music education and I'm currently studying Jazz and Pop Vocals. I have 15 years of experience in playing the piano and have won numerous singing competitions during my school years. I took part in The Voice of Germany in 2017 and have performed and I'm performing both in a band, but also solo. My goal is to help students express themselves through singing or playing the piano and to help them understand music theory so that they are able to understand music better, but also compose music themselves. My goal is to help students enjoy their music lessons and learn in a fun way. Feel free to bring to the lesson the songs you like singing or the pieces you really want to play on the piano! Together we can learn the basics but also dive deeper into music theory and ear training.

    I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary.

I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.

    A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons
    Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.
