I am a professional violinist graduated with distinction at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Master) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from Codarts (Rotterdam). I teach students of all ages and levels. I have six years of teaching experience in the Netherlands ( privately and at music schools: Hart Muziekschool in Haarlem and Vioolstudio 020! in Amsterdam). 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.

I teach motivated young and adult enthusiasts to make their passion a rewarding hobby !. I also specifically prepare young students or professionals for auditions, entrance exams at the Conservatoire / Haute Ecoles, various competitions. I have a lot of experience in coaching with excellent results on all levels, instrumental and personal. The violin is a school of life. I'm waiting for you! Respighi Award Winner 2015 (NY, USA) Irene debuted in 2016 as a soloist at Carnegie Hall in New York with the Chamber Orchestra of New York, conducted by Salvatore Di Vittorio, with the first New York performance of Dirk's Violin Concerto Brushed "Black, White and in Between". In 2016 she also had her debut in South America, with the first South American performance of Ottorino Respighi's Violin Concerto No. 1 and in the Czech Republic with WAMozart's Concerto No. 5. She has created several contemporary pieces, for example "Infal's Song" by Antonmario Semolini for solo violin (dedicated to her), "Andante mesto" by Federico Mantovani and chamber music by Richard Dubugnon. Today Irene is regularly invited to Festivals and concert series around Europe. Committed to teaching and deeply convinced of the social responsibility of art, Irene founded in 2015 POURQUOIPAS, a non-profit organization that organizes concerts, masterclasses and projects in support of a social cause. Passionate from a very young age for Niccolò Paganini (she wears her tattooed signature and she has an original letter from him dated 1831), Irene created with POURQUOIPAS an educational experience entitled "Niccolò Paganini: The Mystery": an itinerary of a time to discover the truths and mysteries of the composer's life, with a final concert. Italian violinist, Irene began her violin studies with the Suzuki Method at the age of four in Aosta. She continues her training with Marie Annick Nicolas, Pierre Amoyal, Corina Belcea and participates in Masterclass among others with Thomas Furi, Itzhak Rashkovsky, Viktor Pikayzen, Benjamin Schmid and Zakhar Bron.

Zachary
Viola and Violin Lessons: Technique, Improv, and a Healthy Relationship with your Instrument
This course is for viola and violin students from the beginner through the high school level. My goal is for my students to foster a healthy and long-term relationship with their instrument. The course focuses on practicing and truly understanding technique, with an emphasis on listening. Weekly assignments tend to include technical exercises, scales, and classical pieces of the student's choice. Basic improvisation is also an interest of mine and, I find, a valuable experience for my string students. I believe repertoire is largely a matter of student taste. Students of mine have learned pieces in the Suzuki books and other classical repertoire volumes, but have also learned pop and fiddle songs according to their interest. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from the University of Puget Sound, where I graduated in 2015 before moving to Vienna to study privately for three years. I am currently in the Master of Viola Performance degree at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, where I study with Ásdís Valdimarsdottir. I have been teaching violin intermittently since 2009. While my musical education is classical, my performance interests are much wider. I have performed jazz and pop improv, and am currently exploring how hip hop can be implemented on the viola and violin.
