Work your diction to have a beautiful voice and / or a beautiful accent / Brussels

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
This course is aimed at those who evolve in the French language and of which it is not the native language. But also to people with a strong accent and who would like to reduce it.

The work that I propose is based on my speaking techniques from theater and singing and will allow you to have a beautiful diction, speak less quickly and more clearly.

This course is also intended for professionals of the communication (singers, comedians, journalists, lawyers, doctors, lecturers) wishing to develop their oratory potential or to address a specific question.

Contact me, I would be happy to help you!

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Performing and vocal artist, I play regularly in Belgium and abroad; mainly in the context of public readings, performances (spoken or sung), stage creations and radio broadcasts.

My practice is centered on the relationship between writing and voice. How to make a written text natural? It's an exciting question, to which I give myself as an artist and that I love to convey. It's always amazing to bridge a person (his body, his voice, his posture in space, his sensitivity) and what he / she has to say!

In recent years, my artistic practice has been enriched by a musical approach and the exploration of several vocal techniques. This knowledge is very valuable for the oral expression work that I pass on.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I come from the world of stage and theater. I studied acting at the Ecole Supérieure d'Art Dramatique (Paris) and directed at the National Superior Institute of Performing Arts (Brussels). I also studied Modern Literature, Dramaturgy and I have been singing for many years.
I have built my approach to voice with a variety of practices, such as Kristin Linklater's natural voice method, biodynamic approach and vibratory singing transmitted by Nadine Rodilla, the legacy work of the Roy Hart Theater (musical theater) taught. by Joseph Clark, the traditional polyphonic song transmitted by Dounia Depoorter or jazz singing with Marie-Sophie Talbot.
Today I am part of several vocal groups including the 'Hot bodies choir' directed by Gérald Kurdian.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been working on speaking with all kinds of audiences since 2009.
I have passed on my techniques to children, drama students, teenagers, professional journalists, executives, computer scientists, activists, European Commission officials, translators, diplomats, salesmen, linguists, professors, bearers of artistic projects and workers in the socio-cultural sector.
I worked in structures such as: The Contemporary Art Workshops (Liège, Brussels), the "Parallax" actors' school (Brussels), La Monnaie / De Munt (Brussels), the Odeon - Théâtre de l (Paris), the CFPJ (Paris), the school of scenic arts: Art-T (Brussels), Serco Europe (Brussels), the collective 52 (Paris), the Pole Les Bazis (France), the Smart and the Far network (Belgium), the Haute Ecole Franscico Ferrer, the Université Saint-Louis (Brussels), the CFS (Brussels) and Vie Feminine (Nivelles)

Living for over ten years in the European capital, passionate about other cultures, I teach in English as well and receive students from around the world that I can work with their mother tongue (I have notions of Italian, Spanish and modern Greek)
I also get to Paris, where I was born and where I go very regularly.

Je suis venu avec des objectifs professionnels bien précis et j'ai obtenu des résultats très prometteurs en peu de temps. Charlotte s'est adaptée à mes difficultés avec beaucoup de bienveillance. Je recommande sans hésiter !
Accompagnement très professionnel, et dans le plaisir de la rencontre.
Charlotte is an excellent coach and I would highly recommend anyone with fears of public speaking like myself to consult with her. Through my coaching sessions with Charlotte, I am visibly improving my speaking techniques. The exercises are fun and I am happy to say that my fears might one day even be conquered, so that public speaking will be a joyful experience. Thank you!
The lessons I've had with Charlotte have been extremely helpful already in calming my nerves and improving my voice. Highly recommended.
Charlotte is a superb instructor. I took classes with her at her home for several months to improve my public speaking skills. During each session, Charlotte helped me work on my tone and delivery through various public speaking exercises. Charlotte asked me to prepare short written assignments before our meetings, so that I could practice delivering my script using various speaking techniques during the class. For these assignments, Charlotte was very engaged and made sure that the assignments would assist me in my specific professional goals. She did this by tailoring the subject matter to my professional work - mostly legal and political matters - and she pushed me to consider what I wanted to achieve from my audience with each speaking opportunity. Charlotte, however, is not only a skilled professional. She is also a tremendously kind, energetic and dynamic person to work with. She made me feel comfortable sharing my vulnerabilities, which made the process of receiving constructive feedback a fun and welcomed experience. She encouraged me to practice my public speaking in French - which is not my first language - and made me feel at ease. She is kind, understanding and an incredibly nice person. If you are looking for a professional who is dedicated to helping you improve, welcomes your goals and ideas, and who is a pleasure to meet with each week - then look no further than Charlotte.

The current professional world pushes us to always look valiant and efficient. But the voice can suddenly fail us and we hear screaming, inside us: "I'll never get there, I'm not up to it!" These silent cries block our expression and force us to remain spectators. of those who arrive there: to speak, to master their voice, their body, their speech ... How would it be otherwise, when we never learned these techniques and did not train? Public speaking has, for many of us, more naturalness. Today, and we can rejoice, oral expression is up to date in our Western societies. The work that this effort requires is known and it is important to be able to share its vulnerabilities with someone you trust, who will make you rediscover the pleasure behind fear! My specificity as a teacher? I transmit an accompaniment adapted to each person, resulting from my theatrical practice, vocal and my constant research on the language. My teaching experiences led me to be attentive to the problems related to the speech of women, particularly spoiled in terms of cultural obstacles! Others may also be happy to experiment with me a different approach, departing from the usual male injunctions. My goal is to find the singularity of each voice, which is that of each being. The solutions that you will put in place to make you feel more comfortable will emerge from you, your work guided with kindness and involvement. Want to try this joyous adventure? Welcome !

Many people are the ones who come to see me because they are shy and would like to change, feeling stuck in their career (where more and more people are asking for oral presentations) To those, I want to say: do you know that some of the greatest artists were very shy? That did not stop them from making the crowds vibrate on stage! "Technique is what prevents us from breaking our mouth!" This sentence, attributed to Jacques Brel - always sick before going on stage - reminds us where to turn our attention if and when we are not confident in ourselves and fear the eyes of others. We will develop all the technical means at our disposal to spread our word, learn to trust the situation of enunciation and welcome what the public (the audience) will send back to us. Nobody has interest in a failed speech! The public (the audience) is our ally and - thanks to the work - we will learn to build on it and play with it. Welcome to my home, in a secure space where you will have all the time to practice with a benevolent teacher, herself still practicing as a scenic and vocal artist!
Public speaking is one of the most scary things for human beings. For some, this can be extremely disabling and hinder their entire career. But this apprehension concerns a very large percentage of the population and crosses all categories of age, sex or socio-professional environment. If you are in this case, you can start by reassuring yourself: you are not alone! The second good news is that it works! It is by practicing that you will learn how to lower the level of stress, to be more aware of what you have to do and to be well prepared. To practice, I offer private lessons: a benevolent and demanding environment that will allow us to adapt to your specific needs. Once you have understood your fears and learned to overcome them, speaking (in public, meeting) may be a great source of fun!

Give French / FLE lessons in Ixelles or at home
Hello everyone, I. My French / FLE course: I first seek to identify the needs of the student but also the requirements of his Professor if necessary, or requests related to a particular professional situation. It is from this inventory that I build my course. My teaching method aims for a clear understanding of the rules, (transmissive model) and instructions, and their constant recall. My explanations are always clear and structured and are ideally made with the words of the students, rather than with technical terms. Clear explanations, certain guidelines for orienting oneself in case of difficulties, taking a few notes, repetition - in a fun way if possible -, constant practice of exercises, recurring questions that I ask to check that the material is acquired, will ensure lasting success without cutting corners. Thus grammar, for example, becomes much less arid mental gymnastics than it seems. On the contrary!

Jérôme
FLE French course - tutoring - FOS (French objective) - I deliver French lessons to children, teens and adults.
FLE teacher graduated from the Alliance française Bruxelles-Europe. I taught in Laos (1 year in a local school) in Peru (1 year in a college and in a French alliance), in Moscow (2 years in a private language school), in Brussels (6 month in an association that delivers courses to newcomers and the F9 for private and group lessons at the ULB). The type of teaching that I favor is based on active pedagogy, constant interaction of the learner with his teacher and his environment, a cultural exchange and a clear and precise understanding of the objectives to be achieved. To apply this practice I use a lot: authentic documents (radio and TV programs, articles, reports, songs, testimonials, ...), the role play (theatrical exercises), games are a founding element of my teaching (playful and recreational approach of the language), the debates (the experience and the personal history being the raw material to animate them), reading (books and comics: phonetics), the grammatical exercises in adequacy with the theme ( didactics of FLE and grammatical methodology)

Singing lessons / vocal technique / songwriting / interpretation work
Hi! I’m a singer who has been teaching professionally for five years, primarily in Norway and Denmark. I have a masters degree as a singer and music teacher from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen. In my classes you will get a chance to fully understand and explore your voice. We might try out different genres (pop, jazz, musicals, classical, free improvisation, etc), all depending on what you want or what we decide will be a fun challenge for you! I believe that there’s not one vocal technique that works for every voice, so together we will explore different approaches and techniques so that you get the sound you want and feel a freedom in your voice and singing. I've worked a lot as a vocal coach in theatre/musical productions and will be happy to assist in audition training/musical interpretation as well. I can also help you with songwriting/composing. Looking forward to hear from you!
