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.

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.

Douglas
Double and Electric Bass, Jazz Theory and Improvisation (applicable across instruments)
Specialising in jazz theory as well as double and electric bass technique, but mostly learning how to play! I enjoy working collaboratively with individuals as well as groups, focusing on listening skills, transcription, composition and communicating musical ideas through notation software Musescore. I have extensive experience performing and teaching in Scotland and around the world. I graduated in 2012 from Edinburgh Napier University, working as a full-time session musician since. Tuition fees can vary and be negotiated on an individual basis.

Ezio
Clarinet and Music Theory lessons (solfeggio, rhythmics, harmony etc.)
Reading, understanding, playing and writing music. I offer lessons for children and adults, no matter the level. In my lessons, in addition to learning technique and the instrumental repertoire (clarinet), you learn the language of music in all its facets (solfeggio, rhythmics, dictation, harmony, elements of composition). The method I use varies for each individual student and depends not only on his/her level, but on what interests him/her most and what serves his/her artistic growth. I am Ezio, I am Italian and I moved to Belgium to continue my studies. I have a degree in clarinet, I also studied conducting for wind orchestras, musical propaedeutics and also theatre and theatre therapy. I have worked with youth bands and taught in two music schools in Sicily. I am always interested in new methodologies and everything that can make learning not only functional, but also a real pleasure.

Max
Guitar lessons for beginners on acoustic guitar taught by university student.
I specialize in teaching guitar to people who are new or looking to improve their guitar skills. I plan to teach in a friendly and low-stress environment and adapt my teaching methods specific to each student's needs and wants. I can teach the student to learn how to read both normal sheet music and guitar sheet music as well.

Inspiring violin lessons - all levels and ages welcome!
I am an enthusiastic professional violinist and teacher. I can teach you classical violin, folk songs from Greece and Middle East, as well as your favourite pop tunes and tunes of almost any other music genre! Being well classically trained, I can help you build a solid violin technique and prepare you for giving your best during important music occasions such as exams, auditions, concerts etc. Also, being member of pop - oriental bands with concerts around Belgium, France and Greece, having played with several classical and contemporary music ensembles and orchestras, as well as coming from a family of musicians, my lessons are ideal for students who want to learn to be at ease when they eventually make music with others. :) All pieces can be taught either by ear, music scores or BOTH!! Teaching you basic and/or more advanced music theory to facilitate your violin learning if you don't know yet how to read and write music, can be easily done! My personal experience with music psychology and body movement techniques for musicians have enriched my knowledge and teaching skills. Extra attention is given during the lessons to not only help you build a strong and steadfast technique and develop your music ear, but also to acquire a confident presence and attitude for when you play for others! All is being done with gentle care towards your body's physiology and feelings, and consideration of your learning style. :)) Finally, I'm at your disposal in between the lessons, answering to any questions you might have and offering you support and guidance with your new insights! :D

Pablo

Double bass - Double bass - Classical music, technique, studies, repertoire for solo and orchestra.
The string bass or double bass is the biggest instrument of the orchestra. It is a long journey full of emotion and with a challenging repertoire. Many groups are currently searching for members who have some proficiency and lots of things to do.

Learn Acoustic Guitar/Piano by playing your favorite songs
Hi there :) I'm Lukas and I'd be happy to help you start with acoustic guitar/piano stress-free because isn’t that what we all need right now? Some people are busy, shy, or don't want to learn on their own. You don't need a lot to rock'n'roll your favorite songs and serenade your love, or get creative and make your own music. Of course, we can have a look at the music theory together as well. Give yourself well-deserved me-time in the busy world and have fun whether you study, work, or even enjoying your pension. Do you already have a guitar, great! And if not, no worries, I supply guitar/piano and a cup of coffee/tea :) Feel free to contact me anytime if you are interested or have more questions. We will have a look together at what you want and need and create a program just for you. Hopefully, I'll see you soon! Lukas
