I have done 3 lessons with Ronnie and I am very satisfied because I feel I already learned a lot : he gives lot of tips, is really supportive... And also he makes sure to find songs that suits your level and your music taste :-)

Un tout bon commencement avec quelqu’un de captivant, fort sympathique et exigeant.
Très dynamique et encourageant. On sent qu'il partage sa passion avec plaisir.

Learn ukulele with me in Brussels. The ukulele's small size, lightweight, and strings that are easy to press down make this instrument one of the easiest to play. Learning to play the ukulele can deliver huge benefits including improved memory, coordination, and stress relief to everyone ranging from small children to seniors. The ukulele is also one of the easiest stringed instruments to learn to play, making it an excellent stepping stone for other stringed instruments like the guitar.
Guitar lessons in Brussels. Playing guitar is not only fun, but it's also good for you. Put down that game controller for an hour a day, because playing guitar is a great way to exercise your brain. Did you know that studies show that playing a musical instrument both improves memory and activates creative thinking in the player's brain? Amplification and connection cables provided during lessons at the teacher's home. Students only need to bring their guitar and a desire to learn.

Guitar lessons (acoustic & electric) for all ages
The guitar lesson will allow you to have an initiation for a person who has no notion about it or who is not necessarily foreign to certain concepts related around the instrument. The work will be carried out in stages, taking into account the level of the student, the objective pursued as well as the time dedicated, all this in a structured, fun way and above all taking pleasure. It will be a question of basic elements such as the work of major/minor open chords, scales, the development of the musical ear and gradually going into the depth of certain styles such as blues, funk, jazz, bossa nova, samba, pop. , rock to dissect other elements enriching the game on the guitar. This progressive work put in place will consolidate the foundations for developing learning over time.

Lyric Singing, Ancient Music, English, French, German and Italian pronunciation
This course is intended for beginners (of all ages) and music students (up to the age of 18) wishing to discover, learn or develop their singing technique. I offer early learning lessons for children (up to 11 years old) that can be done in groups of up to three people. The learning revolves around the discovery of different musical styles, the development of the relative ear, the basics of singing techniques and of course the interpretation of a varied repertoire. I advise families able to consider group lessons, music is an essentially social practice and the practice with several facilitates its learning with children. (the price of group lessons is also cheaper). The awakening classes for adults (from 12 years old) are structured in the same way as the awakening for children with an emphasis on vocal technique, and a more advanced repertoire. The courses for singers in conservatories are more specific depending on the student. It will be possible to approach modern and ancient techniques of singing. Detail issues in the history of music in the repertoires. Prepare for competitions or concerts. Work on the pronunciation and the so-called “old” interpretation of pieces in this repertoire.

Dring Dring Dring! The guitar swings! beginner - intermediate course
Hello, I am a passionate young musician, trained trumpeter and self-taught multi-instrumentalist, I have been exploring the many facets of musical expression for 15 years. I have been playing the guitar for 7 years, to accompany the song, to create an improvisation support or atmospheres and melodies. The musical openness, the technical background and the experiences of multiple styles allow me to adapt my teaching to the needs and wishes of the student, and lead me to offer an accompanied teaching on the guitar, the piano, the percussions, decorated Harmonica or Trumpet. On this support a work of improvisation and musical listening is also offered. After my CEM course at the Bayonne Regional Conservatory and one year of private teaching, I have the educational tools necessary for effective technical education. Recalling the interest of technique as a means at the service of expression, I invite my students to explore and work through play, and to find their own expression. Learning the theory can be done upstream, or integrated into the learning of instrumental playing. Welcome to all students from 6 to 666 years old!

PLACES, FEES - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Medieval, folk and Celtic harp lessons
"I still remember the first time I heard the sounds of a harp, when I was 8, my grandparents took me to a concert in the little church in Gosselies. To pinch the strings, I was kidnapped by the magic sound that came from the heart of the woods.The longer the concert went on, the closer I got to the harp ... After harassing my parents for a year, I started To study this magnificent instrument, it immediately became a sacred object for me, and thanks to him, I could communicate my feelings, laugh, relax and find the desired balance. " My courses are based on the Irish teaching method so first of all to the ear, on the resources that the student has in himself and on the fact that one learns while having fun. I propose a harp lesson: - Medieval dedicated to teenagers and adults for false beginner and intermediate based on medieval music and rebirth, improvisation, arrangement of melodies, ... - Celtic for all ages from 14 to 70 years, beginner level, false beginner, intermediate and intermediate / advanced based on Celtic repertoire and Irish, Scottish and Breton techniques After a few lessons, the neo-harpists will play short and simple melodies until the end of the journey to play more complete melodies that provide accompaniment and use of both hands. Lessons are defined on the learning needs of individual students. Even if I use the Irish teaching method, I will provide the basis for reading the pentagram, for the integration of rhythm, the foundations of harmony so that the student can read a piece of music independently. I live in Italy, so I come back once a month in Belgium (sometimes more) for the courses in attendance (duration of the lesson in attendance: 90 minutes). Next dates for the courses in attendance: - a date at the end of February - once a month from May. For skype lessons (3x per month, lesson duration 60 minutes) see the typical week. Do not hesitate to write to me.
