Would you like to learn to play the violin? Violin lessons for everyone!
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 nine 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.

Jonathan
GUITAR COURSE - AT HOME OR AT THE PROFESSOR - LAUSANNE
Classical or classical guitar lessons for beginners and more. I am a student and I practice guitar for 12 years at the conservatory and I have been teaching for 4 years. I travel near the EPFL and within a radius of 3 km around Lausanne. The course can be given in Lausanne in my music room. (1004 Lausanne) Want to start the guitar? Want to try out classical works or to play the latest pop songs on the radio? No problem I am here to help you achieve your goal! Even if you have never touched a guitar of your life I can teach you from basic notes through scales and chords to play your favorite arpeggios. If necessary I enrich my teaching with solfège and guitar culture. It will be necessary to learn to know your instrument and especially to know how to read the scores to exercise when I would not be there;) If the course is for your child I know how to be a pedagogue and a patient, and children often have a good listening experience when learning a musical instrument. I can help them develop their musical ear while showing them the basics of this art. For schedules I can be flexible but preferably during the week. Here I hope soon to scratch some agreements with you :)

Dorelle
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. The important thing for me in learning the cello is to have fun while making sure to find a good position that will not generate tensions later. 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.
