    Drum Teacher available for technical and motivational lessons online

    If you want to know not just about drum techniques and playing, but also about its history and musicianship, you'll definitely have a unique experience with my lessons.

    I believe drumming is not just about playing and knowing your chops, but also about being able to listen to others in the band and make sure you "be" part of the music, without resorting to thrashing around and proving to others what kind of noise you can make. Hence the phrase "A band should be as good as its drummer". :)

    Drumming is undoubtedly a way of building up your self-confidence, in order to establish your identity. The drums are a great use to channel your emotions, so long as you don't have to pull a Keith Moon. ;)

    I can also add keyboards to the mix.... But why is it relevant for a drummer, you may ask? Well, although it may look the contrary from the outside, having an ear for other instruments and chords is absolutely essential, because both your drumming nd ability to improvise contributes to the atmosphere of each song.

    If you want to know more, do please get in touch. I look forward to rocking out with you! :)

    About Me

    There's nothing more important to me than being in the now, forgiving yourself for any mistakes you made and always looking forwards without any dwelling whatsoever.

    Jazz/Soul/Rock/Pop drummer Ricky Lawson once said to me in 2010 "If life gives you a thousand reasons to cry, you give life a thousand reasons to smile." And that's been my personal motto ever since. :)

    My teaching contains a lot of self-motivations, as they're vital for today's current times.

    Piano Lessons for Levels Beginner-Advanced, Classical and Contemporary styles
    I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I am currently pursuing my third degree (Postgraduate Concertsoloist) at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, and have obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions.

    PIANO LESSONS: What about learning how to play the piano?
    Piano, the instrument used by the romantics to make their most beautiful music, but also by the most experimental and modern composers to create their amazing music. Isn't it a great instrument to play? With more than 5 years of experience teaching in music schools and 8 years as a private piano teacher, I developed an efficient and "fun"-focusing way to teach how to play the instrument. Every student is different, so also the way to play and learn shall be different, which makes every single lesson special and rewarding. I also offer the possibility of teaching in groups: if you want to know more about this option. I hope I become the teacher you want and need!

    Professional saxophonist eager to teach and work to make the best of yourself! Classes are for all levels, children or adults. We follow a working method where you will develop in a continuous and deep way your musicality, way of playing, expressiveness and technique. -------------------------------------------------- ---------------------- Raúl is a Spanish saxophonist who finished his MASTER DIDACTIC in 2018 in the Ecole Supérieure des Arts in Mons. Before, he also followed a MASTER of INTERPRETATION at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (2015-2017) in the class of Alain Crepin and Simon Diricq. He studied at the "Musikene" (Higher Conservatory of Music of the Basque Country) with Eric Devallon, Tomás Jérez, Antonio Felipe Belijar and Miguel Ángel Lorente. Passionate about multidisciplinary artistic creation, he thinks of mixing all the arts in the same show as an aesthetic finality. This type of research has been observed in his project for his final master's recital in Brussels where he created a project based on Maslow's theory of human needs hierarchy where he mixes live, recorded music from the dance, light effects and effects under the name of "according to Maslow ..." At the level of his career as a concert artist, he has played in different ensembles (solo, duet, trio, quartet, orchestra ...) and different countries such as Japan ("Suono Italia" 2010), Belgium (2016 Musiq3 Festival) ), Artonov Festival at BOZAR in 2016 ...), France (Dax 2011 chamber music festival) or Spain (Quincena Musical Music Festival 2015, Aste Nagusia 2015, Heineken Jazzaldia 2014, Kutxa Festival 2015, Intercentros Melómano 2010).

    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). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.

It's a process! :) I play classical piano, and I usually direct my lessons in style, reading sheet music, rhythm, chords, musicality, understanding the scores in a musical sense, and not just notes on paper. I usually try to understand what each one needs to develop, it is a very particular process for each one and my role there is to show paths, concepts, ideas. I try to make the whole thing very personalized for each person's need. Ich lade Sie alle ein, Klavierunterricht in Friedrichshain zu nehmen.

Geralmente tento entender o que cada um precisa para desenvolver, é um processo bem particular de cada um e minha função ali é mostrar caminhos, conceitos, idéias. Tento fazer a coisa toda bem personalizada para a necessidade de cada um.

    Voice, piano, baroque/ chamber music/musical, stage performing,
    Hey, nice to meet you! This is He Xiao, you can call me Sophia. I'm a professional opera and oratorio singer from Shanghai Conservatory of Music. The lesson will be given with piano :) No matter you want voice training or stage performing. Depends on your current level, I’ll massively “upgrade” your skill and try to find the best ways of getting progress in future. If you want intensively to learn a piece, that’s no problem, we will work on “short term - high quality” mode; but if you want deep diving in the music world, welcome to join me! The lesson will be given in English or Chinese (my French is sufficient for chatting but I doubt if it's enough for teaching, better not to try...) All ages are welcome, I'm extremely patient with other people's kids though, lol~
