A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons

Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them.
Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns.

I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar!

Shaya
Classical Double-Bass, Improvisation and music theory lessons!
Professional double bass teacher gives double bass and improvisation lessons to children and adults, all levels in Brussels and environments 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.
