    Cello and Piano Lessons including Musicianship training

    Hello, I'm Melanie, and thank you for visiting my profile.

    I am a professional musician; my principal instrument is the 'Cello and my second instrument is the Piano. At 16 years old I received the opportunity to teach young cellists for Miss Anna Shuttleworth (Casals student), during a 'Cello residential course in York. I thoroughly enjoyed supporting the students and knew from this point that teaching, as well as performing, was definitely for me.

    I am an encouraging, demanding and fun person to work with and make sure that structure is always present during lessons. The learning and well-being of every student is something I take seriously. The student needs to learn at their own pace, in order for them to achieve a good understanding of the Musical Language.

    In addition to playing the instrument, I get the student involved in musical activities, which greatly support their instrumental playing:
    - During lessons we sing in Solfa (doh, re, mi, fa, etc) with hand signs for younger students. This makes a huge difference towards developing the student's "inner hearing", musical memory, reading skills, playing in tune, performance presence, musicality, playing with more ease, and overall discipline.
    - I also enjoy involving the student in Dalcroze Eurhythmics, which is moving to music played to them, and this supports their handling of pulse and rhythm.

    At the moment I am mobile in Tain (Ross-shire), and teach online too.

    Do you have a musical child? Are you an adult keen to learn 'Cello or Piano? Then please do get in touch with me.

    Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
    Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

    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.

    Learn ukulele with me in Brussels. The ukulele's small size, lightweight, and strings that are easy to press down make this instrument one of the easiest to play. Learning to play the ukulele can deliver huge benefits including improved memory, coordination, and stress relief to everyone ranging from small children to seniors.

    Piano lessons for children/adults, beginner/intermediate
    Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level).
