Beginner & Intermediate Violin Lessons (Taught in English)

I have experience teaching violin to beginner and intermediate students for over 15 years in California, United States. I recently relocated to Antwerp and look forward to meeting new students who are interested in learning more about the violin.

A bit about myself - I began playing the violin at age 9. I am a classically trained violinist and have performed with orchestras, chamber groups, rock bands, and jazz groups. I have performed in venues including Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House. Though I never pursued violin performance as a university major, I continue to maintain my skill, teach, and perform regularly. I have a passion for music history, and would love to talk about it with the student if they are interested.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Lydia
Piano Lessons for Levels Beginner-Advanced, Classical and Contemporary styles
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. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I am currently pursuing my third degree (Postgraduate Concertsoloist) at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, and have obtained 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.

Beatriz
Music and cello lessons in Antwerp - All levels and all ages.
Hello! My name is Beatriz. I am a Spanish cellist and I have just finished my Master Studies at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. Would you like to learn to play the cello? Do you want to improve your technique? Do you love music and you want to enjoy it as an amateur? It's time to prepare for auditions?. The lessons are adapted depending on your level and your goals. I love teaching and I have 10 years of experience teaching children and adults. Feel free to ask for more info. Let's do some music together!

Mafalda
Violin Lessons: begginers, intermediate and advanced levels, all ages
I start playing violin when I was 5 years-old, and since then I never stoped. I thank my first teachers for passing me the entusiasm, passion and love for playing violin when I was a child. So... I would love to pass the same feeling to my students, to have fun while playing violin and learning new music! In my first years playing violin, I followed the Susuki Method (you can find more information about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_method), and I find it really interesting for begginers (till intermediate students), since it really gives good basis and also keeps the students motivated (because of the repertoire, of playing together...). >Beginners: my idea is to introduce the student to Susuki Method, and to follow it after. If the student wants to pursue another Method, we can search together and see the best way to suit the student needs. >Intermediate/Advanced: first, my idea is to see the level of the student, and what the student expects from violin lessons (just learning for fun, hobby; amateur-musian; guidance for study; prepare for auditions; concerts;...). After that, the programme and lessons should be develop according to student needs. If possible I would also like to do group lessons (with all the students), because I find it really important to do music together and share experiences.

Elisavet
Holistic violin lessons - all levels and ages welcome!
I use a holistic approach to transform your violin playing into grounded musical confidence. This means that you learn how to give up "control" and release the physical tension. Practicing is no longer boring and exhausting, rather it becomes a journey of self-discovery and authentic self-expression. The purpose is to become able to play the violin out from the inner singing. You learn how to "tune" the body so that it becomes a vehicle of what the heart, at the very moment, wants to share. Feeling inspired to dive into this journey and wanting to know a bit more about it? Feel free to message me! :D

Violin lessons in Antwerp, in English or in French
I am a professional violinist based in Antwerp, currently finishing a master in pedagogy in the Conservatory of Mons. I propose to teach the violin to children or adults. I adapt as much as possible to everyone, according to what you want to play with the violin :) I am also looking a lot for the best posture, to find the most comfortable way of playing for each student. I am free in the weeks and in the weekend, so feel free to contact me! ----------------------------------------------- I am a professional violinist currently living in Antwerp. I am also in pedagogy training at the Conservatory of Mons. I propose to give lessons at home, I adapt to each student, according to the time he devotes to the instrument and his tastes. The approach of the instrument for beginners can be done in a "classic" way (through exercises, studies, pieces) or more playful. I can also give notions of music theory in addition! Possibility also to work only by ear. I focus a lot on the feeling, the relaxation and the posture, so that playing the violin is still a pleasure. I can give classes in French or English.
