Reviews (2)

Prof très dynamique, organisée et qui vulgarise très bien la musique à un débutant. Elle est motivante. Je n’ai pas vu passé l’heure de cours que nous avons fait. Hâte au prochain cours!
Concentration sur le moment présent, calme, patience et inventivité sont autant de qualités que j’ai observées chez Chantal. Ses messages courriels sont à la fois des compléments et des rappels. Ses commentaires précis et son œil observateur m’amèneront à jouer d’ici quelques mois un petit air de Mozart sur un alto bien posé sur mon épaule gauche.

My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions.

Sara
A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons
Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.
