Would you like to learn to play the violin? Violin lessons for everyone!

I am a professional violinist graduated with distinction at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Master) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from Codarts (Rotterdam).
I am currently pursuing a masters degree in Music Education at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

I teach students of all ages and levels.
I have ten years of teaching experience in the Netherlands ( privately and at music schools: Hart Muziekschool in Haarlem and Vioolstudio 020! in Amsterdam).

In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination.
The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes.

Gaie, encourageante, attentive,... Paula est une vraie pro!
Paula is a hands on teacher with lots of patience. Her instructions are clear and easy to follow. Paula is extremely encouraging and made my daughter of 6's first experience with the violin magical. I can highly recommend her.
I am extremely pleased with the lessons Paula gaves. I feel extremely lucky to have met her and to be able to be taught by her. She is a very nice and kind person, very open and knows how to communicate well. She gives great advice, is really attentive, plays amazingly and every lesson with her is just pure joy. She really makes it easy and very understandable for everyone, even someone like me, who didn't know how to play violin at all.

Valeriia
Cello lessons for children (English, Russian, Ukrainian)
I’m an enthusiastic Cellist from Ukraine specialized in teaching children. I have a pedagogy education from the Dnipro Academy of Music and want to show your children how much fun it is to learn to play cello, learning the right technique and feeling the music. In Ukraine I studied with Artem Poludennyi, one of the best Cellists of Ukraine, who performs as Soloist with all major Ukrainian orchestras and internationally. Here in Belgium I currently complete my formation at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with the famous Cellist Jeroen Reuling. I teach at home in Ixelles or can come to your house in Ixelles, Uccle or Brussels Center. Despite my focus on teaching children, I’m also happy to accept adult students. Don’t feel shy to contact me if you have questions. Valeriia I will be a hundred cellos, all in one. I will play – I will sing, I'll have fun. I'll describe a murky rainforest, with the rhythm in my soul. I'll be a thunderous storm, It's my only goal. And when I'm done with my few songs, People stand: applause. I'll smile and bow down with thanks, It's my only cause.

Guitar lessons for kids, teens and adults
Guitar teacher for many years, I am passionate about jazz, blues, folk and fingerpicking. My classes address in the greatest relaxation, the bases of these different styles. Chaining chords in a fluid way, exploring different rhythms, correctly placing a melody, trying improvisation (jazz, blues, rock), developing finger-playing techniques (classical or folk), are all elements at the center of learning. These are deepened by notions of musical theory and / or solfeggio. Teacher trained in the "Arc-en-sons" method, I also teach children from 4 years Classes are for Beginner and Intermediate levels. Individual lessons (20, 30, 45 or 60 minutes). Group lessons (60 or 90 minutes). Possibility of collective workshops (3h, min 4 participants). Hope to meet you!

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!
