    Piano Classes and Solfège (no prior knowledge required)

    My ultimate goal is to let people enjoy playing the piano. In my classes, the focus is less on the competitive side of piano, but it is rather about the music we can create together. After going to the music academy with a rather strict, school-like approach, I prefer to make my classes instructive, but without comprising the joy of playing piano.

    I learned to play the piano with the books of Folk Dean, so I will use them in my classes too. These books are for beginners, people who don't know anything about piano at all. Most of the student I have now are beginners. I will teach amongst other things how you play with the right posture, how to read notes, how to create musicality... I will give you a solid basis for a pianist. I will also teach you the solfège that you need to know. There's no prior knowledge required for this class.

    About Me

    I am a 21 year old psychology student. I have been playing the piano since I was ten. I always had to learn songs from music sheets at the music academy, which has reduced my motivation to play the piano. You practice for a long time and once you can play it perfectly, you have to immediately switch to another sheet and repeat the whole process.
    That's why I started improvising, and now I play my own songs. I would like to share this knowledge with others. I can give piano lessons to people who already have piano knowledge (but would also like to learn to improvise) and to beginners. If desired, I can also give basic music theory to beginners.

    Education

    I have studied music and piano at the musicacademy of Geel since I was ten. I learned classical piano pieces and also played together with a partner so that we sat at the piano with 2, and in the last year of my education, there was a new option to choose (it was called 'begeleidingspraktijk', I don't know how to translate that) and I did it for a year and there I learned a lot for my improvisations.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have been playing the piano for 11 years, and have also had music theory, so I can also teach music theory too if desired. Of those 11 years, I have been fully concentrated on improvisation for the last 3 years.
    I've been playing the piano since I was 10 years old. But at music academy I learned piano in a very school-like way. We always had to learn scores, which you spend a lot of time on, and once you could do it perfectly, you already had to switch to another piece. I was tired of this and started improvising. I now make my own songs and prefer to play the piano than ever before. I would like to share this with other people as well. If desired, I can provide basic music theory for absolute beginners, so that the theory behind the improvisations is understood.

    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

    Pianoles voor muziekliefhebbers. Alle leeftijden zijn welkom!
    Sinds ik 4 jaar oud ben, neemt piano een grote plaats in mijn leven en hart, doordat mijn vader me sindsdien heeft lesgegeven. Ik ben enorm enthousiast om mijn passie te kunnen delen met geïnteresseerden, wat hun leeftijd ook is! Ik let veel op de positie aan de piano, zodat er geen injuries zouden opkomen. Ik praat ook veel over muzikale lijnen en hoe een goede klank produceren piano op. Als u geen notenleer heeft gevolg, ben ik heel blij om daar ook mee te helpen samen met de pianostudie. Piano spelen is voor ieder heel persoonlijk, zowel technisch als muziekaal. Daarom vind ik het heel belangrijk om de beste oplossingen te zoeken en me aan te passen aan elke individual leerling, zodat hij of zij zijn eigen band met muziek kan creëren. Ik ben momenteel mijn Master aan het afmaken bij Jan Vermeulen in Luca School of Arts, Leuven.

    Inspiring violin lessons - all levels and ages welcome!
    I am an enthusiastic professional violinist and teacher. I can teach you classical violin, folk songs from Greece and Middle East, as well as your favourite pop tunes and tunes of almost any other music genre! Being well classically trained, I can help you build a solid violin technique and prepare you for giving your best during important music occasions such as exams, auditions, concerts etc. Also, being member of pop - oriental bands with concerts around Belgium, France and Greece, having played with several classical and contemporary music ensembles and orchestras, as well as coming from a family of musicians, my lessons are ideal for students who want to learn to be at ease when they eventually make music with others. :) All pieces can be taught either by ear, music scores or BOTH!! Teaching you basic and/or more advanced music theory to facilitate your violin learning if you don't know yet how to read and write music, can be easily done! My personal experience with music psychology and body movement techniques for musicians have enriched my knowledge and teaching skills. Extra attention is given during the lessons to not only help you build a strong and steadfast technique and develop your music ear, but also to acquire a confident presence and attitude for when you play for others! All is being done with gentle care towards your body's physiology and feelings, and consideration of your learning style. :)) Finally, I'm at your disposal in between the lessons, answering to any questions you might have and offering you support and guidance with your new insights! :D

    Electric Guitar, Improvisation, finger style, backtracking
    I have been playing electric guitar for 16 years and I was a member of several rock bands before. In my courses, I mostly focus on improvisation over bluesy, jazzy or simple rock chords. For those beginners, I start with some basics until we reach the required level to improvise. By taking the classes, you will learn how to accompany other instruments and enjoy together with other musicians.

    Hi, I am cello and piano teacher with 10+ years of teching experience.I believe music lessons should be fun and educative
    ⁃ 10+ years of teaching experience either private (one-on-one) and group lessons. ⁃ I apply different education programs to children and adults. ⁃ In my lessons with children, i use games and play doug. Since i use these unique and fun techniques to teach, until now i have helped more then 100+ children to meet with either cello or piano. ⁃ Ensamble studies (i enjoyed to help my students get to gather and perform on a real stage!, because it is very important and motivating to actually express what they learned and practice it to a audience).
