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

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 assigne 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 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 to 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.
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.
I graduated at IMEP Namur where I obtained my Master degree for violin.

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.

Giuseppe
Piano, solfege, composition in Brussels and Leuven.
I give piano and music theory/ music writing (composition) classes in regions Brussels and Leuven. I have studied in Italy (piano) and at Brussels Conservatoire (music writing). I like sharing my artistic knowledge and experience with motivated students of all ages and varied backgrounds. In my teaching method I try to focus on the strong points and qualities of the student in order to build up technical skills which will help the student to overcome difficulties in a simple and natural way. It is crucial for me to make the student able to express their personality in an autonomous and creative way.

Siebe
Private lessons for piano, music theory and / or harmony. (Also online!)
I am in the second master piano at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven. Here I also spent 4 years in the Kunsthumaniora. I teach anyone who is interested in music and who wants to take steps in this wonderful world. I will personally guide you with what you want to learn. Prior knowledge is not required and every genre is possible. In addition to my classical education, I play at social events as a back or foreground pianist, where I tend to play jazz and pop music. Because of this I have a large collection of works / songs that you can learn to play. If you are not available at the times that I have indicated, you can certainly send something and we can arrange a different time.

Elisavet
Holistic violin lessons - all levels and ages welcome!
I use a holistic approach to transform your violin playing into grounded musical confidence. This means that you learn how to give up "control" and release the physical tension. Practicing is no longer boring and exhausting, rather it becomes a journey of self-discovery and authentic self-expression. The purpose is to become able to play the violin out from the inner singing. You learn how to "tune" the body so that it becomes a vehicle of what the heart, at the very moment, wants to share. Feeling inspired to dive into this journey and wanting to know a bit more about it? Feel free to message me! :D

Johan
Custom piano lessons, at your home! For all ages from beginners to advanced.
Under the motto 'learning music is learning to enjoy' Johan wants each student to follow a personal trajectory that meets the personal needs to achieve the desired level of the student. He teaches all levels, from a novice introduction to the instrument to preparations for an entrance test at the conservatory. Johan completed his master's degree in classical piano in 2020 with great distinction at Dhr. Joop Celis. As a young engaged teacher, he is ready to take the step in the educational field. He has a lot of experience in teaching himself. Johan has given piano lessons and solfège since he was 17. He has not only experience in teaching but also as a performing musician. For example, he released an album at the end of April of 2020 with his Chamber music duo RADAMES. With this repertoire, this duo was also selected to participate in the semifinal of the Supernova competition of radio Klara. As a self-employed student, Johan is going to do a master's chamber music in 2020-2021.

Piano lessons for beginning / semi-advanced pianists (no prior knowledge required)
Hey! Would you like to learn to play the piano at your own pace? Would you like to learn some chords on the piano so that you can quickly play a lot of well-known pop songs? Would you like to learn to play that one song by Coldplay, Keane, John Legend, Birdy, Ariana Grande, .. but you don't know where and how to start? I would like to help you with this. I started as a pianist at the Academy of Music, Word and Dance in Genk and have now been playing the piano for 15 years with a lot of performances behind my teeth. I also recently started writing my own piano course with the aim of helping starting pianists quickly get started in the wonderful (piano) world of music. In addition to piano lessons, I have also been teaching drumming to musicians of all ages for 5 years. Does this sound like music to your ears? Then I would love to hear from you, hope to see you soon! Greetings, Jannick

Voor de gemiddelde: Er zal verder worden gewerkt op reeds vergane vaardigheden en verdere ontwikkeling om een vaardige en handige pianist te vormen. voor gevordere: indien je hoge ambities hebt, zal ik mijn uiterste best doen om deze te verwezenlijken. We kunnen repertoire uitbouzen en het pianospel van de afgelopen 150 jaar bespreken. *** english version *** I am a skilled pianist and teacher with experience in the categories mentioned above. I was a student at the Hochschüle für Musik in Basel in the Piano performance master department and LUCA School of arts, Leuven (both obtained summa cum laude) This class is for everybody that wants to learn music, on any level. My main goal is to share my passion for music with the student and to motivate them as much as possible. For beginners: we will start with the basics in both piano playing and music theory.

Johanna
Tailor-made private violin lessons for all ages and levels
Hello! I am a violin student with Elisa Kawaguti at LUCA School of Arts Campus Lemmens and I am now in my second bachelor. In my lessons, I think it is most important that students have fun and feel good about themselves, which hopefully also motivates them to improve technically and musically at their own pace. If there are students who would like to have lessons during holidays, I do this with great pleasure as I used to always think it a pity that the lessons then stopped. I look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions, you can always let me know.

Andreea
So, you are here to learn violin? You came to the right place!
My passion is teaching violin to children and adults. I have been playing violin for 16 years and I am very happy each time I can teach everything I have learned. My goal is to make people fall in love with this instrument and to help them easily progress and feel comfortable playing diverse repertoire. I teach for absolute beginners, beginners and advanced level, music theory being included if necessary. The focus of the class is understanding how playing the violin works, learning new music scores, having a great time and developing your artistic skills after each lesson. My experience with teaching was built during my studying years, when performing as a professional musician and working as a private teacher for children and adults. Obtaining a violin performer degree and a teaching degree at National University of Music Bucharest, together with studying abroad, completed and improved my teaching experience as well.
