Kaspar
ACCORDION / BANDONEON lessons for all levels and ages
Hello! My name is Kaspar. I am a professional accordion & bandoneon player from Estonia and currently based in Brussels, Belgium. I'm holding a bachelor degree in jazz music (accordion, keyboards) from Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and master degree (bandoneon) in World Music / Argentine Tango from Codarts / Hogeschool voor de kunsten (Rotterdam, the Netherlands). During my prior studies, I have found, that I would like to specialize in Argentinian tango/folklore and combine my previous knowledge and skills in jazz and world music as an interpreter and composer. I have been teaching accordion, bandoneon, jazz piano, and music theory for the last 9 years and I have experience with students of different ages and levels. I'm offering accordion and bandoneon lessons for all ages and levels. Topics: - Technical aspects (scales, modes, exercises, patterns, timing and tone control) - Improvisation and phrasing in different styles - jazz, tango (traditional and tango nuevo), Argentine folklore and classical music and how to adapt them on accordion/bandoneon - Music theory - How to make the accompaniment and to build chords More information about me: For the last 6 years, I have been a composer and a leader in a band called Abraham’s Café. The group has given more than 150 concerts around Estonia and abroad at different jazz clubs and festivals. We have recorded 2 albums – “Journey to Haran” (2013) and “Berber Cinema” (2015). The music of the last album “Berber Cinema” was mainly composed for the Estonian-Palestinian documentary film “Rough Stage”, for which they also toured in Palestine in autumn 2015. For the last five years, I have involved bandoneon into my performances and played Argentinian music in duos with guitarist Martin Lopez Muro (ARG); accordionist Jaak Lutsoja (EST); Martin-Eero Kõressaar (EST); Isabel Bermejo (ESP), Trio Maag (EST) and bigger ensembles - Gran Orquesta Típica OTRA (NL) , Septeto Camaleón (NL) etc.

MUSIC FROM THE SOUTH OF THE WORLD - Culture and Folklore
Folklore from the south of the world – Music Lesson I am Chilean and I am fan and player of the music of the southern cone: Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Specifically I can help you learn tango, cueca, milonga, murga, boleros and tonadas. To a lesser extent I can help to learn Afro-Peruvian and bossa nova. The lessons I offer can include musical practice, rhythms, progressions and typical melodies, as well as the study of the history of the musical genres and the culture associated with them. If you want to nurture your career as a musician with other genres or if you are an amateur musician with an interest in music from the south of the world, these lessons are for you. If you are not a musician and simply want to approach the study of the culture, I can also provide books, articles and videos relating to it. I would love to contribute to the further dissemination of this folklore that I love so much.

Tango Argentino, conexión y comunicación con uno y el otro.
📌No siempre se necesitan dos para que funcione la cosa… Para empezar a conectar, asimilar y experimentar con un nuevo SABER, lo más IMPORTANTE ¡es el cuerpo, la actitud, constancia y una gran pizca de confianza! Me gusta siempre abordar los códigos de diferentes disciplinas de la danza, a partir de estructuras que trabaje el aspecto físico, rítmico, creativo. Se tiene la idea de que el Tango es difícil de aprender, y claro que si nos acercamos a él con esa etiqueta, así lo será. Partiendo del principal del concepto del tango, la CAMINATA, algo que tod@s hacemos la mayor parte del tiempo, bailar tTANGO está al alcance de todos.🤗 Otro punto muy importante es la manera de asimilarlo y entenderlo 😉😅 ❤️‍🔥¿Cómo serán las clases te preguntarás? Te comento un poquito, la estructura la vamos a desarrollar en el trabajo de cambios de pesos, la pisada, proyección de la caminata, el pivot, comprender la kinesfera individual y en pareja traducido al abrazo, los giros y el torso en espiral para entender el impulso en varios ejercicios, los ochos tan famosos en el tango, El paso básico y salida universal, caminatas con el concepto de carriles y mucho más a partir de diversas secuencias que vayan familiarizándote a las necesidades técnicas para poder realizar los pasos y sin dejar de lado las dinámicas, el pulso, acento y compas del tango. Todo se irá concientizando en segundo plano de manera más orgánica. No se trata de solo aprender pasos sueltos, y luego…¿qué hacemos 🧐? No es la forma la que debe tomar papel protagónico, sino la manera en que expresas esa forma. También dejaremos que tu lado creativo y lúdico forme parte del proceso, a través de una herramienta que considero muy valiosa que es la improvisación 👌 ya que permite encontrar tu propio estilo y reconocer tus fortalezas y debilidades para seguir creciendo en tu pasión por el baile. Ya con todas estas herramientas, entrar al mundo de secuencias más complejas y por qué no, crear las tuyas, será un paso más y no un desafío imposible de alcanzar.🤩 No te olvides, que los pasos que hoy se conoce y gran parte de las secuencias, surgieron de una mente inquieta y creativa, que exploró sinónimo de IMPROVISAR❗️ Transitemos por proceso junt@s y sostengamos en un abrazo.

Relaxation Dance / Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Reggaeton / Workshop
These workshops aim to learn or simply practice steps, combined with guided breathing exercises. 《Private sessions also available》Prices may vary depending on the number of people. The cumbia-relaxation workshop is a concept that pays homage to ancestral rhythms linked to the Earth and to heartbeats. One of these rhythms is the 《tresillo》, which can be found in several popular dances such as cumbia, bachata,bullengue, reggaeton, etc. This rhythm is also present in millennial cultures in Australia, Asia and Africa. His steps find equivalence in the movements of Tai-chi, an ancient martial art known for its self-defense techniques and its health benefits. Socially, a circle dance can help release any inhibitions. The workshop aims to show that we can dance alone, or in a group, and feel safe. Happy dancing!!

We are happy to do a free interview to get to know each other and talk about your goals with the flute. You don't need any prior knowledge. I will do my best to adapt the lessons to your wishes and needs.
