About Me

My goal as a teacher is to make my students love guitar and music in general.
I love to explore different kinds of repertoire and help my students to develop their own taste and sensibility.
For the youngest I propose a playful approach to the instrument and to the music theory, with games, toys and drawings.
It is important for me to make my students feel relaxed and to work in a friendly context.

Reviews (10)

Caterina stemt zich af op het niveau en de wensen van de leerling en is vriendelijk en geduldig. Ze verdiept de leerkansen bij elke oefening en heeft oog voor het leerproces op korte en lange termijn. Ze heeft oog voor detail zonder te ontmoedigen. Bravissima! :-)
It was really good beginning. I am looking forward for my next lesson!
Prima lerares, werkt op het tempo van de leerling.
Just had my first lesson with Caterina and that was a very nice experience. She took her time to learn what I want to get out of the lessons and then quickly picked in on that with simple but effective excercises. Off to a good start!
It was a nice start. I am really happy with the first lesson taught by Caterina. She is really helpful and explains the basics quite well.

Diana
Violin Classes / Viool les, teacher of musical theory
I am a violin teacher based in the city of Leuven. I am a holder of a Master’s degree in Violin Performance, after studying in LUCA School of Arts – Campus Lemmensinstituut. As a violin teacher I have 10 years of teaching experience while working in numerous music conservatories and academies, having students with ages ranging from 2 to 30 years old. Through my experience, especially with students of early childhood, I developed teaching techniques which help children to approach music via a playful environment full of games and fun activities. At the same time, I can offer clearly structured lessons to students of any age, interested in classical music repertoire but also in any other genre (pop, jazz, improvisation, etc.). The lessons can be conducted in English, Russian and Greek. Binnenkort in het Nederlands! :-) Don’t hesitate to contact me for more information.

Ali
Electric Guitar
I have been playing electric guitar for 16 years and I was a member of several rock bands before. In my courses, I mostly focus on improvisation over bluesy, jazzy or simple rock chords. For those beginners, I start with some basics until we reach the required level to improvise. By taking the classes, you will learn how to accompany other instruments and enjoy together with other musicians.

Damla
Hi, I am cello and piano teacher with 10+ years of teching experience.I believe music lessons should be fun and educative
⁃ 10+ years of teaching experience either private (one-on-one) and group lessons. ⁃ I apply different education programs to children and adults. ⁃ In my lessons with children, i use games and play doug. Since i use these unique and fun techniques to teach, until now i have helped more then 100+ children to meet with either cello or piano. ⁃ Ensamble studies (i enjoyed to help my students get to gather and perform on a real stage!, because it is very important and motivating to actually express what they learned and practice it to a audience).

Piano and music theory lessons for all ages and levels
Hello! I am an experienced pianist and music teacher from Greece who is currently studying in Lemmensinstituut ( Major Piano). Apart from teaching, I also have several years of experience in piano accompaniment. As far as teaching is concerned, I'm mostly specialised in classical piano. Nevertheless, I can also help you in playing your favorite tunes or experimenting on simple improvisations. I can easily teach in Greek, English and French. As I am now learning Dutch, lessons can also be done in a basic Dutch level. If you are interested, I would be happy to receive your message.

Slaggitaar, gitaarakkoorden leren spelen en gitaar akoorden met tokkelen
Afhankelijk van uw niveau leer ik u elke les iets nieuw waarmee je aan de slag kan. Deze lessen zijn lessen die je een basis brengen voor slaggitaar maar even goed ook voor leadgitaar met behulp van akoorden en tokkeltechniek. Het is geen les voor mensen die reeds goed kunnen spelen! Het is een brede basis op een simpele manier aangeleerd.
