Electric guitar lessons, acoustic or music theory.

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Passionate, Curious, Open, Professional and Smiling, I am from Mexico.

My music career has taken me to several cultural capitals, including London, New York, Brussels and Paris. During my professional life I had the opportunity to perform with recognized jazz musicians such as Brian Lynch or EJ Strickland. I also composed for the National Orchestra of Mexico.

My mother being a university teacher, I grew up in an environment where education is valuable. Thus, music and foreign languages are two passions I like to associate: I teach guitar in French, English or Spanish.

In my ideals as a teacher, the technical and theoretical aspects of music education should never be a barrier to taste for the associated musical activity and cultural aspect.

Seeing the surprise of my students when they discover their potential and their progress is the greatest of my satisfactions as a teacher.

My students describe me as patient, efficient, kind and reliable.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have 10 years experience as a guitar teacher. When I studied for 6 months, I started to learn the basics to young neighbors who did not know it.

On the performance side, I started playing professionally at the age of 18, playing in all styles of music, including world music and jazz. I have studied with notable figures of this style like Danilo Perez, Brian Lynch, Adam Rogers, Eddie Gomez, David Liebman among others. I know various methods of music education because I attended the Berklee College of Music workshops and I graduated from the CRR in Paris.

I taught music to people of all ages, in music schools and in private. In English, French and Spanish.

Reviews (6)

Après quelques minutes du premier cours on a vite établit les priorités et les objectifs. José s’est vite adapté à mon niveau (adulte avec connaissances musicales mais mauvaise technique). Clairement José est très compètent et sérieux.
Very nice prof, reliable, flexible, adjusting the teaching approach to the interests and capabilities of a student. I do recomend.
Super Prof!
José est un prof avec juste le bon mélange de patience, rigueur, sérieux et passion pour transmettre à l'élève une envie d'apprendre, des fortes bases techniques et l'amour de l'instrument. Mon fils de 10 ans a fait de très grands progrès, et a beaucoup apprécié l'heure de cours hébdomadaires avec José. Je le recommande vivement!
le 1er cours s'est très bien passé. Hâte d'avoir le second.

María
Cours de violoncelle pour tous! / Cello lessons for everyone! / ¡Clases de Cello para todos! / Cellolessen voor iedereen!
Hello to everyone! My name is María, I am a Venezuelan Cellist. All my musical education was inside the musical program "El Sistema" in Venezuela. This education was based on preparing myself as a better human being though playing cello in orchestras, chamber music and as soloist. I am current studying my Master degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with Jeroen Reuling. In what consist my lessons? Cello classes for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced), it does not matter if you have never played cello before or if you are already studying, the important thing is to help you achieve the goals you want with this beautiful instrument. To have better results with practice, if it is necessary to help you with music theory, I will help you. As well, if you're looking for help in orchestral excerpts for auditions, I'm here for you! For kids, parental support is also important during some lesson, we are all a team and we need to work together to achieve the goals! Classes can be in person at your house or mine (just in Brussels, Belgium) or via videocall (Skype, Zoom, etc). The schedules are planned according to the time of the student and the teacher. Looking forward to meeting you and work together! Maria.

Guitar lessons (acoustic & electric) for all ages
The guitar lesson will allow you to have an initiation for a person who has no notion about it or who is not necessarily foreign to certain concepts related around the instrument. The work will be carried out in stages, taking into account the level of the student, the objective pursued as well as the time dedicated, all this in a structured, fun way and above all taking pleasure. It will be a question of basic elements such as the work of major/minor open chords, scales, the development of the musical ear and gradually going into the depth of certain styles such as blues, funk, jazz, bossa nova, samba, pop. , rock to dissect other elements enriching the game on the guitar. This progressive work put in place will consolidate the foundations for developing learning over time.

Ngoc

I am a Vietnamese pianist and I would love to share nice music to you with a friendly environment. I have finished my Master in piano specialisation in Royal Conservatory of Liège, and now I'm following piano accompaniment in Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

Bastien
Classical-contemporary saxophone (Included: approach to improvisation, harmonic understanding and basic music theory)
Student at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. From practical lessons to theoretical notions, I know how to adapt to the student and his interests to provide a course that really brings him the elements that will allow him to quickly flourish in the musical field. With already 4 years of course experience in non-profit organizations and in particular, I usually train students of all ages, beginners or more advanced. I am open to a large number of musical styles, current or old, focusing my thought on a "musical whole". I currently specialize in classical and contemporary saxophone but I am also very open to improvisation and live music such as jazz and the styles that derive from it, but also to electronic music. My final goal is to allow the student to express his ideas in music, and that he really evolves and flourishes in what pleases him. I take beginners without any knowledge of music theory. I am available in: * Brussels region. * Region of Tournai occasionally. * Online, via webcam lessons

Guitar workshops: personalized lessons / private training
Folk or classical acoustic guitar. The teaching philosophy is adapted to the level of each individual, according to the pace of work and motivation. For example, for beginners: Technique of the plectrum or fingers, coordination and correction of the right and left hand. Learning basic chords, simple themes, simple rhythms, reading tablatures (…). For intermediaries: development of rhythm, construction of chords, writing of tablatures, basic notions of harmony (…). Depending on your goals, you can learn, if you wish, to play 60 to 80% of current music from the first lessons, which often use the same chords and the same techniques. The objectives take into consideration the following points: -Study of various playing techniques, chords, harmony, music of your choice, rhythm, with reading of tablature, teaching structured around the repertoire you like, technique of developing the musical ear - Discovery of the neck, notes and basic positions of open chords - Left / right hand coordination and rhythm exercises for the right hand - Learning of different pieces of your choice - Left hand control exercises, speed and precision - Learning arpeggios - Work around muscle memory - Learning improvisation, musical play with others - Ear training: use your ears to find chords, melodies, sounds and techniques used -Spend a pleasant moment of exchange, without unnecessary institutional pressure, while obtaining concrete results -Understand and discover the many facets of an exciting and user-friendly instrument - Benefit from personalized advice on your posture and certain pitfalls to avoid when starting alone -Adjust and clarify your self-taught knowledge - Learn tablatures / tabs & in English. Note : - Possibility to use the guitar available on site, during the test phase. - As our teacher is also a singing teacher, it is possible to combine the two disciplines: guitar + vocal instrument, and to work on synchronization, style and accuracy. - Possibility of offering this course (birthday, party, Christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. THE TEACHER : Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field, in renowned international public and private establishments, with careful pedagogy and methodology as the watchwords. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Gabriele
Violin and chamber music classes for beginner/intermediate
During my training, I had the opportunity to study with famous teachers with whom I was able to discover different violin techniques and different pedagogical approaches, which allowed me to create my own methodology. If Italy gave me the passion of sharing and communication (a typical Italian characteristic), Belgium taught me to convey a message, an idea in a concrete way. My meeting with Mr Lawson also made me aware of the importance in the life of an artist to share his knowledge, and teaching is for me the best way to put this sharing into practice.

Arta
Piano lessons for beginners, intermediates and advanced levels of playing
Learning how to play the piano is a goal you can reach only by frequent exercising. Considering the fact that many pupils and grownups don't have much time to practise, my piano lessons are split in learning new information and also practising together.
