Medieval, folk and Celtic harp lessons

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
"I still remember the first time I heard the sounds of a harp, when I was 8, my grandparents took me to a concert in the little church in Gosselies. To pinch the strings, I was kidnapped by the magic sound that came from the heart of the woods.The longer the concert went on, the closer I got to the harp ... After harassing my parents for a year, I started To study this magnificent instrument, it immediately became a sacred object for me, and thanks to him, I could communicate my feelings, laugh, relax and find the desired balance. "

My courses are based on the Irish teaching method so first of all to the ear, on the resources that the student has in himself and on the fact that one learns while having fun. I propose a harp lesson:
- Medieval dedicated to teenagers and adults for false beginner and intermediate based on medieval music and rebirth, improvisation, arrangement of melodies, ...
- Celtic for all ages from 14 to 70 years, beginner level, false beginner, intermediate and intermediate / advanced based on Celtic repertoire and Irish, Scottish and Breton techniques

After a few lessons, the neo-harpists will play short and simple melodies until the end of the journey to play more complete melodies that provide accompaniment and use of both hands. Lessons are defined on the learning needs of individual students. Even if I use the Irish teaching method, I will provide the basis for reading the pentagram, for the integration of rhythm, the foundations of harmony so that the student can read a piece of music independently.

I live in Italy, so I come back once a month in Belgium (sometimes more) for the courses in attendance (duration of the lesson in attendance: 90 minutes).
Next dates for the courses in attendance:
- October 18 to October 21
- from November 16th to November 18th included
22nd to 27th or 28th of December
- from 18 to 20 January (to be confirmed)

For skype lessons (3x per month, lesson duration 60 minutes) see the typical week.

Super premier contact !
Super, cours donné par Mélanie qui est très à l'écoute. J'ai reçu une grande aide pour pouvoir retrouver à l'oreille une mélodie dont la partition est introuvable. Bon suivi dans la progression des cours. Je recommande fortement pour qui veut acquérir des notions d'harmonie
J'ai commencé un cours de harpe celtique avec Mélanie en véritable débutante; après 3 cours, je me sens super heureuse d'avoir osé la contacter: elle est tout simplement géniale: encourageante, claire , structurée. Elle réussit à me redonner le goût de la musique, à passer son talent et sa sensibilité sur cet instrument magique et à allier solfège et doigté: à conseiller sans mesure!

Cello lessons and / or solfège in Brussels and Leuven
My name is Dorelle and I play cello and piano since I was little. For me, art in general plays a particularly important role in life :-) Currently, after a year of Erasmus in Germany I will finish my studies in Leuven at the Lemmensistituut.

I give an hour of class in general, but can adapt to the desires of the student without worry, whether in terms of course times or to find cool songs that change the repertoire "classic"! I can also help more advanced students who need support to pass an exam or progress more quickly.
