    Music-movement lessons with a Qualified Opera Singer, for children from 4 to 6 years

    Did you know that music & maths use the same side of the brain?

    Other benefits to giving your children the gift of music education include:
    - improved motor-communication through music-movement
    - an exposure to the concept of culture through the use of multi-cultural instruments
    - enhanced social communication through ensemble/creative activities

    I am a music teacher and qualified opera singer, and hold a BA Honours with Distinction in Music and Academic Full Colours from Rhodes University. I have extensive child-minding experience, and am now working as a professional pre-school music teacher in Constantia Pre-School, Cape Town, South Africa.

    With Covid19 having disrupted the school year & social norms of people around the world, I'd like to offer my courses to a wider market, to keep our children learning - at home. Whether you're a parent looking for educational ways to keep your child/ren occupied on the weekends, or someone who's child is having to be schooled at home for whatever reason, I'm here to help!

    I offer entertaining, educational and creative music classes for various ages. Contact me to find out more!

    Experience / Qualifications

    3 years of private vocal coaching experience. I am now teaching in a preschool and high school, in addition to privately coaching students in my home studio.
    As a first-language English speaker who studied Advanced Programme English in Matric and English Literature for 2 years at University, I am qualified and experienced in English tutoring. For two years I tutored two second-language English speaking students towards obtaining their Matricand GED respectively, and I proofread the papers of several Masters-level students throughout my University tenure. Whether its reading, writing, comprehension or sentence structure that you need assistance with - I'm here to help!
    Whether you're a beginner who just wants a confidence boost, or someone with a music background who wants to take it up a notch, I'd be so happy to make music with you! The principles of music-based vocal & breath practice have such power, & will not only make you feel more oxygenated, but will bring out a strength of voice & character that you didn't know you possessed! I am currently Vocal Coach at Norman Henshilwood High School, and am about to commence work as a Singing Music Teacher at Constantia Pre-Primary School. Here's what one of my pupils from last year had to say: "I have always loved singing, but never had the confidence to follow through with my passion. As an adult it can be pretty daunting. I had a couple of lessons with Emma, & through her encouragement, patience & great teaching skills, my confidence grew .. She inspired me to believe in myself and my ability to sing, especially when I did not believe it myself. She is a tremendously positive, engaging & fun teacher, & I always came out of her lessons feeling better than I had walking in, & looking forward to the next lesson!" So what are you waiting for? Join me, in a safe & sunny home studio (Southern Suburbs), & let's start from where you're at, make music, & have FUN doing it!

    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

    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. The ukulele is also one of the easiest stringed instruments to learn to play, making it an excellent stepping stone for other stringed instruments like the guitar.
