SAXOPHONE: learn how to play and enjoy the saxophone, for students of all levels

Saxophone is one of the world's most beloved instruments.
Learning to play the saxophone is incredibly rewarding, but getting started might be a bit of a challenge.
As an experienced classically trained saxophonist I can help you make the most of your practice.

During our saxophone lessons students can learn all the aspects of the saxophone playing: from the technique to master an instrument to the different musical genres and on the way also learn music theory and musicianship skills.
The lessons are tailored to the needs of each student according to the musical interests and objectives in music of each individual. Therefore we can work on specific music, work on the basics or just learn about the instrument and its history.
The course is available for all levels - from beginners to advanced students.
What you can expect to learn from our lessons:
Saxophone technique
Sound development
Breath control
Reading Music
Improvisation
Music Theory
Rhythm Reading
Ear Training
and much more!

I hope you will join and take this musical adventure with me!

Bastien
Classical saxophone / contemporary / improvisational approach / harmonic understanding / basic solfège
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: * Region of Brussels. * Region of Tournai occasionally. * Online, via webcam lessons

Réginald
Le violoncelle pour les débutants ou plus avancés (enfants ou adultes)
La musique est un loisir comme elle peut-être un métier à part entière. Il est important quand on débute ou quand on est plus avancé de prendre des cours avec une personne physique qui peut donner des exemples, conseils et offrir un bon suivi. Étudiant en Master au Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, j’ai près de 20 ans de pratique d’instrument. Je propose une approche complète mais fun de la discipline. Que ce soit à l’instrument ou uniquement pour apprendre le solfège. Je ne suis pas cantonné à un style de musique du moment que j’ai les partitions pour pouvoir faire travailler efficacement. Je serais à même de faire découvrir la musique ou renforcer les bases pour les personnes plus avancées. Je propose un enseignement adapté au niveau et à l'envie de l'élève : Ainsi, je peux donc faire découvrir le monde de la musique et de la pratique instrumentale aux débutants ou d’enrichir et approfondir cette pratique (en vue de préparer des examens, travailler des parties d’orchestre par exemple) pour les élèves les plus avancés. Je peux me déplacer si pas trop loin mais je donne cours chez moi. Au plaisir de faire la musique avec vous 😊
