    Music - Violin and Piano Classes - Beginner to Intermediate

    I have been learning the violin and piano since 5 years old, and am currently taking a bachelor in Music Performance in Violin, in the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp.
    Students of any age are welcome, and I have special experience with beginner and younger students, having given a lot of lessons of piano and music theory.
    I teach in English, Portuguese, Spanish, and basic Dutch.

    The individual violin and piano lessons are personalized and tailored to the progress and learning ability of each student. Emphasis is placed on developing good posture and ease of movements at the early stage. We will then continue to revise and enhance technique while taking on more challenging repertoire as they progress.
    Lessons are stress-free and I always try to provide a safe and calm environment for an engaging and fun class!
    Games for little kids are a absolute must!

    Don't hesitate to contact me if you have a question!:)

    I am a very creative person, interested in helping others grow musically through an engaging and stress-free class environment:)
    Are you interested in diving into the music world? Are you unsure how to start or how to navigate through it? Let me help you!

    Fun Through Music: Violin and Music Theory Lessons
    Hello, I'm Adelina! I'm Romanian and I've recently graduated my master’s in violin performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. Apart from playing music, one of my other passions is teaching. While having a degree in pedagogy, I've had several violin and music theory students so far. I’m experienced with teaching children/teenagers between the ages of 4 and 15. However, I’ve had adults in my class as well! As my profession requires, I’m calm, creative with musical games and have quite a lot of patience. I’m fluent in Romanian and English, however I’m able to have basic conversations in Russian as well and I’m in the process of learning Dutch. Don't hesitate to contact me and let's make learning fun! :)

    Piano lessons for acquiring and/or improving piano skills
    In my class, I teach piano in a way that allows you to make progress on your own. "Don't give a man a fish, instead teach him how to fish," is the idea here. My methods include, besides basics, approaches to expressing your own musicality, stable memorization, practice habits and efficiency, technical ease, focus exercises, body awareness, and stage fright. Hence, I am best suited for intermediate and advanced students that have the desire to either study piano on a collegiate level or make significant improvements for themselves. I would like to add at this point that I have a special affinity for the concert etudes by Frédéric Chopin. However, I am perfectly happy to start with students from the very beginning as well and regardless, I will adjust to my student's needs upon mutual agreement. My free times that I listed as available are a rough estimate, lesson times are normally negotiable.

    Guitar and Music Theory Lessons by a Qualified and Experienced Teacher
    I specialize in teaching about Music and how to play the Guitar. In class, I always make the effort of understanding what are the goals and interests of all students, as well as their own skills. This way we can address the issues at hand more effectively and make sure the student never loses his/her interest and focus in music and his/her instrument. I believe that an honest and friendly relationship between teacher and student is essential for this exchange of ideas to happen more clearly and fluently, and so I do my best to make everyone feel comfortable enough to share their own thoughts freely. I offer good and personalized classes. This means that there will special care with your interest in music and guitar, all basic skills will be worked upon and strengthened, all specific requests and ideas will be addressed, both improvisation and interpretation can be developed and exploring potential, achieving goals and having fun are main priorities. Come and enjoy learning more about Music and Guitar!!

    Piano Lessons for Beginner-Advanced Levels in Classical and Contemporary Styles
    I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. As a pianist 12 years of teaching experience and over 21 years of playing, 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. For example, in the last year my students have achieved highest marks in the ABRSM exams as well as prizes in various competitions. My own studies are as follows: 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.

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.

    Cello lessons and Conservatory preparation/Cellolessen en Conservatorium voorbereiding/Cours de violoncelle et préparation du conservatoire
    Cello Lessons for all levels: My main goal with my teaching is to share my passion for music with my students. I believe strongly that this passion leads to discipline and curiosity which benefit all other aspects of one's life. Whether or not my students decide to pursue music as their main profession, I believe they have much to gain from learning the cello. Besides the discpline one learns, Music-making in itself is fulfilling!! :) Conservatory Preparation: In my experience as a musician living and working in Belgium for the past 6 years, I have noticed a gap in the musical education of young Belgian music students transitioning from Music academies into Conservatories. Oftentimes, these young music students seeking to enter conservatories do not possess the necessary skill level to enter higher education in Music. Through my private teaching, I intend to bridge this gap by catering specifically (though not exclusively) to these students. I strongly believe that there is a huge demand for this type of teaching which I am capable to provide.
