    Jacob
    Professional guitarist graduated from the Conservatory (DEM in France) gives guitar lessons all styles and all levels in Brussels
    I graduated from the Conservatoire de Nice CNRR (France) in jazz guitar. I studied there for seven years with renowned professors such as Jean Paul Ceccarelli (Sting), Pierre Bertrand, Robert Persi or Philippe Petit. My teaching method is flexible and I adapt it to the needs and desires of the student. We will discuss the technical work on the instrument, the knowledge of the neck and chords and the rhythm. With or without solfege. The goal is to provide the student with the necessary tools so that he can continue learning by himself at home.

    Saxophone, music theory and improvisation - all levels
    This course is for anyone that's interested to play the saxophone at any level, from the very beginners to students interested in more advanced topics such as improvisation, both in unconventional ways or more founded on the tradition of Jazz. The course will be adapted to the pupils goals and level, with a demanding but not overpowering approach. The frequency can also be optimized to the pupil's necessities: weekly, bi-weekly or monthly (not less). I believe that the main goal of a mentor should ultimately to make the pupil become his own teacher and establish an empatic two-way learning process.

    Shaya
    Professional double bass teacher gives double bass and improvisation lessons to children and adults, all levels in Brussels and environment
    Passionate about the world of music and bass, I developed a method that allows everyone, children and adults, to discover this world through pleasure, to make rapid progress, and consequently to invest always more to arrive at real performances. Parallel to the mastery of the instrument and the ear, I teach the awakening of the music to the classes of young children, the sound poetry (sounds of mouth) as well as the instrumental improvisation in all age groups . The relation to the instrument is a relation to the soul and the body. That's why I conceive a global, playful and philosophical approach to music adapted to everyone's needs. In my classes, I develop creativity, spontaneity, the desire to go beyond myself, the sense of oneself and the other. Thanks to my studies in different regions of the planet (Israel, France, Germany, United States, Belgium) I was able to broaden my musical horizons, to deepen my knowledge and my mastery of the instrument (I play for example as well with the German bow with the French bow or the pizzicato). I like to experiment with the sounds of the double bass in all the range of its possibilities and to allow the students this same step. My playful approach to music also weaves excellent contact with learners, children and adults alike.

    Clarinet and bass clarinet lessons in Brussels for everyone.
    I am a professional clarinetist graduated with distinction at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels (Master Degree in Clarinet) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from the Music Conservatory of Valencia (Spain). Currently I am studying for a Master's Degree in Bass Clarinet, so we can combine both instruments in my lessons. I teach students of all ages and levels. In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination. The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes. On top of playing, I can also offer lessons on harmony, form analysis and counterpoint that focus on understanding the structure of music. My lessons will already include many different aspects of the music being taught but there is the option of focusing the theoretical or the practical. i am looking forward to teaching you music!
