Violin, Viola, Piano and Music Theory lessons in EN, FR, DE, IT, NL

As a graduated music pedagogue, I adapt my lessons to the student's needs and interests. My goal is to give an as complete as possible preparation in the technical and artistic fields while keeping the lesson a positive, creative and constructive experience for all students, from the youngest children who didn't learn to read yet to more mature people looking for new challenges.

I teach violin and viola from beginner to advanced level and piano for beginners, integrating my lessons with tidbits of music theory in order to give the students wider knowledge and awareness.

Group lessons for two or three students are also an option.

Extra information

There's no need to buy music scores, unless you wish. I provide all the necessary material in digital format, which you can easily print at home.

About Me

No one is the same, therefore my lessons are completely adapted to the students' needs, interests and requests. The kind and the amount of work will be discussed at the beginning and during the teaching period with the students/parents in order to get the best from the lessons, but without being overwhelmed. It is crucial for me to maintain a pleasant and friendly atmosphere during my lessons.
I like organization and efficiency. The homework I assign is thoroughly explained on paper to avoid the risk of forgetting or misunderstanding it. With young children, I can make sure that the parents as well understand the method, so they can supervise their kids at home.
Even when a small break of a few minutes is needed I do some more relaxing but still educational activity in order to not waste time.
When I teach minors I usually communicate directly with the parents or, in case the student as well as using a cell phone, I send double messages to both the student and the parents.
My schedule can be flexible if needed and if communicated with enough advance, but I might not be able to extend the lesson if the student is late and in that case, I'd expect to be paid for the full lesson.
I'm available for answering per mail/SMS some little questions about the homework between a lesson and the next one, as I think this can be a great help for my students in case of doubt.

Education

I graduated in Pedagogy of Violin and got my first artistic degree in 2016 at the Kärntner Landeskonservatorium in Klagenfurt (AT), where I started my studies in 2013. During these three-years period I attended, between several other subjects, weekly lessons, pedagogy classes and apprenticeship for both violin and viola.
Since 2014 I started to get baroque violin lessons and masterclasses as well and in February 2019 I got accepted in a Master for baroque violin.
In September 2016 I moved to Belgium to attend Specialized Master studies for violin at IMEP in Namur, where I eventually graduated, in order to develope my artitic skills.
Since September 2021 I'm following a master for viola at LUCA Lemmensinstituut Leuven.
As for many musicians, the study of piano was part of my education and I've been studying it since I was 11 years old.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching since 2011 as private teacher for both young and adult students. In 2013 I started my studies and apprenticeship and in 2016 I got my degree as Music Pedagogue. Since then I've been specializing further in violin and viola and working as violin, viola and piano teacher in several music schools between Belgium and Italy.
Degrees:
- IGP degree for violin at Kärntner Landeskonservatorium
- Master in violin at IMEP in Namur
- Master in baroque violin at Conservatorio "F. Venezze" in Rovigo
- Currently inscribed for Master in viola at LUCA Lemmens in Leuven

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

Pianoles op maat: fysiek of online. [Kinderen, tieners en volwassenen]
Pianolessen aangepast aan uw smaak en niveau. U zegt wat u verwacht van de lessen zodat ik u optimaal pianolessen kan geven. Bijvoorbeeld: u wilt pianostukken leren lezen en spelen. Hierbij moet ik de relevante theorie aan u ook geven. Extra theorie is aan u de keuze om in te studeren, maar het hoeft niet. Mijn lessen zijn dus efficiënt gericht. Als leerling kan u zelf kiezen aan welke pianostukken we werken(eerst moet het goedgekeurd worden door mij), zodat het piano spelen leuk en leerrijk blijft. Ik behandel klassiek muziek, pop muziek, videogame, movie, anime muziek etc… veel genres dus! Een ander voorbeeld: u wilt een piano cover maken van een bestaand stuk(bv. pop muziek of movie muziek). Ik zal u de theorie meegeven van akkoorden en het lezen van notenbalken. Zo kan u al snel aan de slag gaan. Samen gaan we voldoende oefenen zodat je alles goed begrijpt! Stuur gerust een bericht als u vragen heeft :) Ik heb al privé les gegeven aan volwassenen en kinderen, zowel online als fysiek. Beide opties werken uitstekend! Online doen we via Skype of een ander app indien gewenst. Fysiek doen we in Leuven stad (bij uw thuis of op kot). Idealiter geef ik 1 keer in de week les, je oefent thuis dan verder op je piano tegen de volgende les in de week erna. Indien u wenst voor om de week les of 2 keer in de week les, dan kan dat ook voor mij. Waarom kiezen om piano te leren spelen? Het is wetenschappelijk bewezen dat een instrument bespelen iemand slimmer maakt(goede hersentraining). Je kan je pianoskills laten tonen aan anderen maar je kan jezelf ook blij maken en belonen door middel van je piano. Ik heb van mijn vrienden gehoord dat ze spijt hebben dat ze geen instrument hebben leren spelen, hopelijk word jij niet zoals hun. Je leeft maar 1 keer! Waar wacht je nog op? Hopelijk tot dan! ^_^

Violin(viola) lessons in Kristiansand from a professional teacher
Always wanted to play the violin, but it never happened? Years of your violin not touched and now the will to pick it up again? You are never too old to learn it or to pick it up again! I am a violinist from Hungary - I have completed my Masters Degree in Teaching at the University of Debrecen, and in the meantime I have given violin lessons in various music schools in Hungary.

I am also following Norwegian classes, and I can give it a try in Norwegian as well.

Reinout
Violin Lessons | Beginners to Advanced | All ages |
DRIVEN AND DIVERSE VIOLIN TEACHER | As a violin teacher, I teach in a way that focuses on the pleasure of the student when playing their instrument. For this I turn, for example, to the use of different music styles (classical, film music, pop, Balkan ...), improvisation, modern technologies and ensemble playing. I myself am an enthusiastic violinist who is constantly looking for novelties on the violin. I strive to search for sound, texture, and musical experiments. This is something that I want to pass on to my students. I want to provoke their curiosity about all the possibilities of the violin. I have already gained several years of experience as a violin teacher. This within the DKO, various JMAs and private.

Eliane
Pianoles voor muziekliefhebbers. Alle leeftijden zijn welkom!
Sinds ik 4 jaar oud ben, neemt piano een grote plaats in mijn leven en hart, doordat mijn vader me sindsdien heeft lesgegeven. Ik ben enorm enthousiast om mijn passie te kunnen delen met geïnteresseerden, wat hun leeftijd ook is! Ik let veel op de positie aan de piano, zodat er geen injuries zouden opkomen. Ik praat ook veel over muzikale lijnen en hoe een goede klank produceren piano op. Als u geen notenleer heeft gevolg, ben ik heel blij om daar ook mee te helpen samen met de pianostudie. Piano spelen is voor ieder heel persoonlijk, zowel technisch als muziekaal. Daarom vind ik het heel belangrijk om de beste oplossingen te zoeken en me aan te passen aan elke individual leerling, zodat hij of zij zijn eigen band met muziek kan creëren. Ik ben momenteel mijn Master aan het afmaken bij Jan Vermeulen in Luca School of Arts, Leuven.

Lena
Piano and improvisation lessons (also without note knowledge)
I've been playing the piano since I was 10. But at the music academy I learned piano in a very scholastic way. We always had to learn scores, which you spend a lot of time on, and once you could do it perfectly, you already had to switch to another piece. I got tired of this and started improvising. I now make my own songs and I prefer to play the piano more than ever before. I would like to share this with other people as well. I do this in combination with solfège, so that everyone has the basics. The lessons consist of 70-80% solfège and piano pieces (I work with piano books) and then we conclude with 20-30% improvisation. Improvisation is experienced by all my students as the most enjoyable part of the lesson.
