Classical-contemporary saxophone (Included: approach to improvisation, harmonic understanding and basic music theory)

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
🎓 Graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

🎷 My courses mix practical aspects and theoretical notions, according to the interests of the student, to whom I adapt to offer them a course which really provides them with the elements which will allow them to quickly flourish in the musical field.

👨‍🏫 With 8 years of experience teaching non-profit organizations and in particular, I am used to training students of all ages, beginners and advanced alike.

🕺I am open to a large number of musical styles, current or old, focusing my artistic approach on an "all-musical" (by mastering the codes of harmony and melody, it is possible to understand and apprehend any new style of music)

🎶 I currently specialize in mastering the Saxophone, in a classical and contemporary repertoire.
But also, I am very open to improvisation, the practice of which I strongly encourage during classes, as well as live music such as jazz (swing, bossa, fusion, etc.).
Some parentheses are possible on electronic styles (D&B, Dubstep, Lofi, House,..)

✅ My final goal is to allow the student to express their ideas in music, and for them to evolve and flourish in what they truly like.

🐣 I take beginners without any knowledge of music theory.

I am available in:
* Brussels region.
* Region of Tournai occasionally.
* Online, via webcam lessons

About Me

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
I have been passionate about saxophones ever since I saw and heard Lisa Simpson play on television.
So I started to learn the instrument before my hands were big enough to be able to hold it fully.

Since then, I have explored many musical universes, having a culture mainly oriented towards Jazz music and of course classical music, which I am currently studying at the Brussels Conservatory in a professional manner. I am interested in all musical styles without distinction, in order to take the best of each universe to transpose it into a music that I wish the most sincere and rich ... I work for example a lot on electronic music coupled with acoustic sounds, or French music projects with texts, through jazz fusion between two sessions of contemporary music. I try to mix my various knowledge to look for new things.

Finally, I love meeting musicians, whatever their age, their musical intentions or their level; I love to teach simply, because I teach is to share knowledge, and sharing is the very essence of music!
My course does not require any notion of music theory, because it is based on listening and practice.
However, if the student wants to deepen the theory, this is also widely possible.

Education

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
I started my musical training at the Conservatory of Tournai, I graduated to the maximum level in saxophone, advanced music theory and in classical writing and analysis.

I am now finishing my Bachelor degree in classical and contemporary saxophone at the Koninklijke Conservatorium in Brussels, with in parallel a second course about to culminate in harmony and classical writing, also at KcB.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated by Google. Click to view original.
I have lived a lot in very diverse formations, ranging from street groups such as Brass bands or other fanfares from the Balkans, through intimate experimental jazz trios, but also by larger orchestral groups, of instruments classical winds, Big bands, cover groups and even many contemporary quartets or children's music! ...

In short, I like diversity and I am convinced that there is a way to approach music in an absolute way, to be able to stick to all possible styles of music if we clearly identify the peculiarities and the spirit.

It is this key to universal understanding of music that I try to transmit through my lessons which, at the choice of the student of course, can switch from one style to another, from pop to classical, from rock to rock. jazz, rap to electro, ...

I am delighted to share my very positive opinion of Bastien. Indeed, I would like to emphasize his patience and his always kind listening. He has the rare ability to understand my needs and adapts his methods according to my abilities. Each lesson is a little learning adventure as he conveys his knowledge with clarity and passion. In addition to his technical and artistic skills, Bastien has a warm and encouraging personality. The atmosphere is positive and his passion for music is contagious. All with a lot of humor. I highly recommend his classes!

...
This applied music theory course is for any passionate musician, regardless of level. It aims to broaden his musical knowledge and abilities by understanding music as a whole. The goal is to be able to decode and understand how a music (not only of classical style, but also pop, jazz, rock, electro, ...) was composed, and to be able to use interesting harmonies oneself. and solid in a personal composition / production. It is made up of two main topics: * Harmony (building chords, understanding chord diagrams, learning to Harmonize a given melody, the possibility or not of using these Harmonies in a given style, etc.). But also understand the key, how to build a scale, how to navigate between different keys, how to transform a classic chord suite into another style? Harmony is a course open to all and all levels, no prerequisites to have. Any passionate musician will find interest in it, that's guaranteed. * Writing is a much more targeted course, which is already an introduction to classical composition. In this branch, we will develop the rules of classical writing (parallel fifths and octaves, false relations etc, ...) within the framework of an exercise based on a given melody or bass (in the first case it will be necessary to invent harmonization and compose a bass, in the second, it will be necessary to invent the harmonization and the melody). This course can also be used by academy or conservatory students who wish to prepare for the writing exam, or simply to deepen their knowledge.
[ENGLISH, SEE BELOW] A music theory course for anyone who wants to start with a solid foundation in music, or for an already advanced musician who wants to go further. This course is also perfect for an academy or conservatory student who wishes to prepare for the music theory exam. Despite the fact that this is a so-called theoretical course, everything that is seen will first be worked on in a musical context and experienced by the student in order to be assimilated. The theoretical explanations will follow from it by itself. On the program (student's choice) - Ear training (knowing how to rewrite melodies with one or more voices, chords, etc.) - Note readings in one or more keys - Rhythm readings, polyrhythmic work - Encryption and recognition of agreements, - Transposition. This musical theory lesson suits to every level, from the one who wants to learn how to read music to the one who wants to know more about chords, transposition or polyrythms. This lesson is also perfect for a student who wants to prepare an examination. In despite the fact I called these lesson "Musical theory", it is firstly about understanding the music. And that can only be possible by ... doing music. So be aware that we will be singing, playing chords, clapping rhythms, ... My purpose is that the student understand by himself first, then the theory will come naturally. What we can do during a lesson (student can choose): - Ear training (Learn to catch a melody of one or several voices and write it down by ear, recognizing chords, recognizing rhythms, ...) - Rythmical work: learn to clap different rhythms in different time signatures. Also included polyrythms. - Key reading, in one or several keys. - Transposition (learn how to read a flute sheet while you're playing trumpet, ..)

Looking for a passionate and professional piano teacher for your child or for yourself? My lessons are designed to bring out the joy of music and enhance creativity, while also gradually improving technique based on age and individual abilities. As a dedicated and experienced teacher with a Master's Degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy, I take teaching seriously and am committed to providing effective lessons tailored to each student. I offer different approaches to suit the individual needs and goals of every student. Playing an instrument should be a delightful experience and that's exactly what my lessons are all about! PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN (3+) Are you a parent eager to introduce your little one to the wonderful world of music? My lessons are designed to be playful and engaging. Using specially adapted piano books, I'll guide your child through an exciting musical adventure, complete with stories and new songs to learn. We'll explore music through singing, movement, and rhythm, helping your child develop a deep and lasting love for music. SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN The lessons are more than just learning songs. Children will explore a piano book filled with stories, characters, engaging music, and games. Depending on preferences we can dive into playing music with accompaniment recordings, which allows children to immerse themselves in a complete musical experience. Theory learning is included. TEENAGERS Are you looking for a piano teacher who will encourage and support your teenager's passion for music? I offer an accelerated piano book specifically designed for this age group, allowing your child to progress quickly in their piano skills. If your child already has experience in playing the piano, I build on their existing knowledge and continue to expand their skills and creativity. I understand that every student has their own goals, whether it's playing for fun or aspiring to be a professional musician. That's why I adapt my lessons to fit your child's intentions. By offering a variety of musical pieces for them to choose from, and being open to their suggestions, I believe that playing a piece they enjoy is more effective in keeping them motivated. ADULTS Are you worried that you're too old to start learning the piano? Don't be! It's never too late to pick up a new skill, and as an adult, you have unique advantages over children when it comes to learning music. You have greater focus, a better grasp of music theory, and a strong motivation to succeed. Do you have a favorite song that you've always wanted to play but thought it was too difficult? There are plenty of classical and popular melodies that have been arranged for beginners, so you can start playing them right away. I'll also recommend a piano book specifically designed for adult learners, which will help you build up your skills at a comfortable pace.

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.
