    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.

    Piano, Keyboard and Music Theory (For Trinity Exams also)
    Online learning is the most suitable method of learning because it reduces the travel time and it also helps to avoid the hindrance of group learning. Students can learn with individual attention which will help them to correct their mistakes soon and accurately. They can have more knowledge about international music.The student will be given assignments regularly to keep in touch with what they learn. Those assignments are not so complicated and everyone can do that. Depending on the student's interest, he/she can appear for the Grade Exams conducted by Trinity College London. If the student is willing to learn music as a hobby, that is also accepted. Students can have flexible timings and they can attend the class on any day. Students can learn with their own instrument so that they may have the comfort and ease while learning. They are free to contact and ask doubts anytime.

    Dorelle
    Cello lessons and / or solfège in Brussels and Leuven
    My name is Dorelle and I play cello and piano since I was little. For me, art in general plays a particularly important role in life :-) Currently, after a year of Erasmus in Germany I will finish my studies in Leuven at the Lemmensistituut. The important thing for me in learning the cello is to have fun while making sure to find a good position that will not generate tensions later. I give an hour of class in general, but can adapt to the desires of the student without worry, whether in terms of course times or to find cool songs that change the repertoire "classic"! I can also help more advanced students who need support to pass an exam or progress more quickly.

    PIANO AND SOLFEGE COURSES BY SKYPE CHILDREN AND ADULTS
    Hello, I am a professor of piano (Studies at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Jaella Institute in Paris). For beginners: The course I give is global (learning to read, solfeggio etc.) so that I can give you lessons even if you have no training. We can start from scratch. For advanced students or those who have taken a break (sometimes longer) in their piano education, I often proceed to a repositioning of the technique or work directly on a directory of choice. I use an effective and dynamic method and I have experience with both adults and children. I chose to give my classes by videoconference to avoid wasting time and to minimize additional costs. Feel free to contact me for more information.

    Guitar lessons in Brussels for Beginners and Intermediate - Acoustic & Electric - all ages are welcome!
    Guitar lessons in Brussels. Playing guitar is not only fun, but it's also good for you. Put down that game controller for an hour a day, because playing guitar is a great way to exercise your brain. Did you know that studies show that playing a musical instrument both improves memory and activates creative thinking in the player's brain? Amplification and connection cables provided during lessons at the teacher's home. Students only need to bring their guitar and a desire to learn.
