Harmonica (diatonic / chromatic) (blues / other genres)

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Lessons in harmonica, diatonic (bluesharp) and / or chromatic, given by an experienced musician.

These lessons are suitable for every level. Whether you have just purchased a harmonica, or have been playing for years and want to refine your technique. The music style is also a student's choice (ranging from blues, jazz, to folk, pop).

In recent years, Olivier has taught beginners, advanced, to professional musicians, both privately (in Ghent) and at music schools (Muziekpublique, Brussels). Knowledge of music theory or reading scores is certainly not a requirement. We mainly work by ear and possibly with tablature. During the lessons, own course material, recordings and backing tracks are also offered.


Olivier himself received lessons and advice from professional harmonica players such as Joe Filisko, Steve Baker, Filip Jers, Steven De Bruyn, as well as from qualified teachers at the Brussels Conservatory and Jazz Studio in Antwerp.

Geweldig aangename en geduldige leerkracht!
Excellent teacher and really nice guy too!
Great teacher, I would highly recommend to others!
Van de eerste les kan je eigenlijk weinig zeggen, dit is bij harmonica, gitaar, piano enz.. de eerste les is een kennismaking en kijkt de leraar wat je al kan en kijkt waar híj u kan in helpen of bijsturen. Aan de hand van dit krijg je wat huistaken mee en ligt het het grotendeels aan jezelf hoeveel tijd je er insteekt en hoe snel je het opneemt. Had wel direct de indruk dat het goed zat bij de leraar, een luisterend oor geduld, vlot in omgang en ziet direct waar je fout en bijgestuurd kan worden. Wat mij betreft kan ik u hem wel aanraden, ik ken leraars die meer met zichzelf bezig zijn door te tonen wat ze kunnen dan dat je er hulp van krijgt, en voor je het weet is uw uurtje voorbij waarvan je niks opgestoken hebt.
Duidelijk, goed.

Harmonica lessons for beginners to advanced. I offer adapted lessons for every level. I started using the instrument in 1993 and have been teaching since 2002 (now more than 200 students). You determine the direction that you take with your instrument. Of course there are always obstacles that you have to match.

Cours d'harmonica tout genre sur Tournai ou par webcam
L’harmonica est un instrument qui se prend rapidement en main et qui permet désormais d'accompagner tout style de musique. Je propose mon encadrement à toute personne souhaitant jouer de cet instrument, quelque soit le style qui les attire : blues, pop, rock, swing, jazz manouche, chanson française... Pour les débutants, je propose de découvrir l'instrument à travers des morceaux qui sont très simples et qui permettent à chacun d'avancer à son propre rythme. Une fois les premiers pas effectués, j'aborde avec les élèves des morceaux plus connus en fonction de ce qu'ils souhaitent pouvoir jouer. Je dispose d'un catalogue bien fourni à leur proposer et si le morceau de leurs rêves ne s'y trouve pas, je le complète ! Pour les personnes avancées, je peux les aider à perfectionner leur technique et à les accompagner dans l'étude de morceaux, de solos qui leur permettra de parfaire leur jeu. Je dispose également d'un matériel de cours très solide à ce niveau. Quelque soit le niveau des élèves, les cours sont toujours adaptés à leur rythme et à leurs envies.

Diatonic and chromatic harmonica lessons (blues, country, jazz, variety ...)
Classes are face-to-face or by web cam. Lessons : My harmonica lessons are based on an original method favoring pleasure over theoretical and tedious lessons, and experience of the professional scene. The basic principle is that like any language, it is better to learn to listen and play than to learn to read before you can speak! This is why my lessons do not require you to have any knowledge of music theory. The Vent d'Accords method (written and audio) is offered free of charge with the lessons.

Heddy
Chromatic Harmonica Lessons in Maastricht (For All Levels)
Chromatic harmonica is like a small keyboard which enables you to play music in all keys with distinct tone color and vivid dynamics. Ranging from classical, jazz, pop songs to folk music. Harmonica is full of potentials and musical possibilities. No matter you have any instrument background before or not, with passion and motivation by your side, it's never late to start your music journey with harmonica! : ) Regarding the teaching content, I will divide each lesson into two parts: (1) Basic techniques (2) Piece study, I would like to know more about what music you like in advance and we will explore together with the piece (I can rearrange the piece suitable for your level) and learn the skills gradually meanwhile! About me: Heddy is a harmonicist and composer from Hong Kong. After graduating from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology with her Chemistry bachelor, as a science student, she decided to transfer from science to music. Her composition journey was sprout during her exchange study in Munich, Germany in 2019, where she gained inspirations from instrument endeavors, local musicians, and mountaineering adventures. She is currently doing the Bachelor of Classical Composition in Maastricht Conservatory, guided by the composer Prof. Vykintas Baltakas. Heddy has been learning the chromatic harmonica for years, taught by the 2013 World Harmonica Champion Mr. Kelvin Shing Hei Leung. As a latecomer in music composition, her motivation is to compose more genres of works to harmonica and share with people through performances. Besides, she is passionate about mountaineering, as she always believes there is an innate connection between nature and music.

Harmonica and Harmonica for guitarists, diatonic harmonica, blues and others genres.
My approach is focused on the complete musical performance. A musician is not simply a set of notions, there is much more. Emotions. I can guide you in experiencing the satisfaction of being able to listen to a song and know that you can arrange it, accompany you with the guitar, sing it and even put on a harmonica solo. If you want to do something different, you have found your teacher!
