Giorgos

Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Producing (Electronic) Music with FL Studio - For beginners and advanced!
Always wanted to learn how to make music in FL Studio? Then this lesson is for you! I have been producing music with FL Studio for years and love to share my knowledge with people who want to learn this too. Whether you are a beginner and would like to learn how to make a song from scratch or if you are already more experienced and would like to take your music to a new level, I can help you with that. I specialize in Electronic Dance Music (EDM), but I also have experience with many other genres. I am currently taking a Professional Music Production course myself, so I also learn new things every week that I can include in my own lessons.

Santiago
Guitar and Music lessons from a CvA graduated teacher in Amsterdam
Learning to play the guitar can be an amazing experience at every stage of the process! My ultimate goal is to help my students to develop their skills and musical understanding by learning and playing music that they like. Therefore I adapt my teaching methodologies to the taste and needs of every student. Throughout every lesson, we will work on three main courses of development: technical aspects, theoretical knowledge, and performative practice. My classes are open for anyone who would like to enjoy exploring the universe of music: beginners and advanced, children and adults, you are all welcome to book the first lesson.

Harp and Music Theory/Solfege lessons, for adults and children. Harpe et Solfège cours pour enfants et adults
FR Je suis une harpiste italienne qui actuellement vit et travaille à Bruxelles. Je suis diplômée (Master of Music in Harp - soliste et orchestre) avec la grande distinction en Italie et au Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. A côté de ça, je continue ma carrière de soliste, de harpiste dans l'orchestre et d'enseignant, en appréciant chaque aspect de ceux-ci. Je suis une professeur passionnée et j'ai plus de 10 ans d'expérience dans l'enseignement de la harpe, du solfège et de l'harmonie à plusieurs niveaux, à partir des enfants aux adultes. J'ai travaillé soit comme professeur privée pendant des années, soit dans l'école de musique de ma ville natale en Italie (Scuola di Musica "Luigi Rachel"). J'adore créer une atmosphère d'apprentissage positive, permettant à l'étudiant(e) de se sentir à l'aise et stimulé(e), qu'il/elle soit un(e) musicien(ne) débutant(e) ou avancé(e). Chaque étudiant(e) a sa propre méthode d'étude faite sur mesure pour progresser à son rythme et j'écoute avec attention chaque demande, afin de booster son attitude naturelle pour l'apprentissage. Je porte une attention particulière aux préférences de l'élève, en termes de répertoire et d'objectifs, en arrangeant également certaines partitions musicales qui pourraient ne pas être destinées à la harpe premièrement. Ces cours s'adressent aussi bien aux amateurs qu'aux musicien(ne)s professionnel(le)s, jeunes ou adultes. Ma langue maternelle est l'italien, mais je parle aussi couramment l'anglais et le français. J'ai hâte de vous rencontrer, Eleonora EN I am an italian harpist currently living and working in Brussels. I graduated (Master of Music in Harp - soloist and orchestra) with first class honours in Italy at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. Meanwhile, I have been going on with my soloist, orchestral and teaching career, enjoying every aspect of it. I am an enthusiastic teacher and I have more than 10 years experience in teaching harp, solfège, music theory and harmony on many levels, from children to adults. I have been working both as a private teacher and in my hometown's school of music in Italy (Scuola di Musica "Luigi Rachel"). I love to create a positive learning environment allowing the student to feel comfortable and stimulated, whether he/she is a beginner or an advanced musician. Every student has a tailored method of study for progressing at their own pace and I will carefully listen to every request. I pay close attention to the student's preferences, in terms of repertoire and goals, also arranging some musical scores that might not be intended for the harp in the first place. These classes are either intended for amateurs or aspiring professional musicians, young or adult learners. My mother tongue is Italian, but I am also fluent in English and French. I'm looking forward to meeting you, Eleonora
