Music Theory (Analysis, History and Harmony).

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
These classes are open to curious musicians of all levels who wish to delve into music theory. The topics of the lessons can vary depending on the goals and interests of the student.

Usually I try to integrate the student's instrument into the lessons, so that the theoretical topics find direct practical application, thanks to short improvisation / composition exercises.

As a researcher and performer, I pay a lot of attention to different music styles from the Middle Ages, from classical music to jazz.

Even people with no knowledge of musical notation or instrument are welcome!

My classes are suitable for musicians who plan to take an entrance exam for the Conservatory.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My interests are very broad, thanks to my curiosity, and range from early music theory and notation, over jazz improvisation, history, epic literature, Italian music theater, to wind instruments and science. After my studies in Mathematics and a period of two years as a PhD student in Computer Science, I started further studies in the other great passion of my life, besides the sciences: music.
For the past five years I have studied Classical Singing and Music Theory
studied at the Conservatory of Ghent. An experience that I have enriched with many
master classes, summer schools, musical projects and personal research. Since 2018, I lead the ensemble Le Vecchie Musiche, an artistic laboratory for concerts, research and workshops.

I like to share my knowledge and experiences with my students with great enthusiasm and I am available for private lessons in Music Theory (Analysis, History, Harmony and preparation for entrance exam Conservatory) and Italian language coaching (for all levels, with specific attention to sawers and speakers).

Goed leraar ik ben blij dat ik heb gevonden
As a musician and researcher I specialize in Italian language and phonetics. The topics of these lessons can be very flexible depending on the goals and interests of the student. I give specific lessons for professional and amateur singers and speakers who want to strengthen their Italian. Amateurs and people interested in Italian language and culture are also more than welcome!

Javier Costa
Professional cellist gives cello and theory lessons for all levels
I've spent my whole live practicing and playing cello and I can assure it's one of the most marvelous things one can do. Even if you struggle! I can teach either beginners or amateurs who want to get better at it, or higher level students who want to perfect their craft. Also, if you are somebody thinking about starting with this instrument, do not have any doubt! I base myself on the teachings received from my teachers during all my years of study, in which I have always been especially interested in the importance of the figure of the teacher for the healthy development of students. I adapt to the technical and musical needs of each student, even if we start from 0, without prior musical knowledge. We will work on every aspect of cello playing: Both hands' technique, posture, musical expression... Musical theory, solfège, harmony, etc. are also possible!

Stuur me zeker een berichtje als je specifieke vragen hebt en zoeken we samen naar een voor jou zo interessant mogelijk individueel traject!

Would you like to learn to play the cello? Or would you like to improve your technique? Be sure to send me a message and we will make a schedule based on your wishes, agenda and interests! Being able to read notes is not a must, we can also tackle this during the lessons. Solfège and music theory lessons are also possible!

Don't hesitate in contact me for any kind of question you have.

Violin lessons for everyone! In Gent, Antwerp and Brussels
I am currently a violin Masters Student in KASK Conservatorium. Passion for music was the main vehicle that brought me to where I am now. But a big part of the origin of that passion came from the teachers I had contact with. ..... I am offering violin lessons, to all kind of ages and levels!! Obviously, violin doesn't come only by itself which means all the theoretical needs such as rhythm, harmonies, solfege, etc. will also be taught. If you would be interested in trying this beautiful instrument, send me a message :) ( I can teach around Gent, Bruges, Antwerp, Brussels)

Susana
Violin lessons (classical music) in Ghent, Belgium
I am a Spanish student of Master in violin performance at Royal Conservatory Ghent. I have been giving music lessons in Spain for 4 years, to people of all ages and levels. My main goal is to make you enjoy in the process of learning how to play this lovely instrument! If the student has no idea about music theory, there is no problem at all: I will dedicate a portion of the class to help him/her acquiring a basic knowledge of musical language, and so being able to read a score or recognize the musical notes. I will adapt the lessons to the level, capacities and the own purpose of each student. If you have any doubt, feel free to contact with me :)

Learn how to sing with an experienced teacher/professional singer
Do you want to be able to sing that song you love so much? Or maybe you just want to improve the quality of your sound because you're already a singer? Hi, I'm roberta, a professional singer and voice teacher. I've been teaching kids and adults since 2018, but I'm always on the go singing from stage to stage! I've been studying singing technique since the age of 14, but I started singing well before that. My performances began in 2007 for various competitions that gave me much satisfaction and awards, after which I continued professionally singing for agencies and companies until now, before coronavirus took over. I have attended many seminars on singing techniques (to name a few: EVT, SLS, TVS , Crossover) and in the meantime I have been certified in Vocal Evolution Method. I have a Bachelor's degree in Jazz Singing from the Conservatory of Cagliari, Italy, and soon I will get my Master's degree in Pop Music Performance in Gent, Belgium. My voice lessons are customized depending on the voice and person in front of me. Each individual is different and therefore functions uniquely. That's why I don't teach any particular method of singing, but I use the complex of knowledge that I have gained over time, in order to find the best and individual approach for the student that I have in front of me at the moment.

Dirk
Trial lesson singing course and vocal coaching for both those who want to learn to sing and who want to learn to use the voice better
No, we don't think that being able to sing is absolutely necessary for actors. Not every actor or actress has the ambition to play in a musical and not every series or film is sung. Still, vocal coaching is a good idea ... whether you want to learn to sing or not! With your course fee you can participate in any of our courses whenever you want. This way you can not only learn to act, but also taste our courses in debate and presentation techniques (our TV course), communication, singing, improvisation, 'physical acting', lie detection, hypnosis, directing, or writing! Of course, the following applies: the more you follow 1 particular course, the faster you progress. More info Anyone who has ambition as a singer or who wants to expand his or her skills in order to be able to get a role more easily will soon find singing lessons ... but also those who do not intend to ever perform songs, benefits greatly from vocal coaching. You often have to be on set for a long time and then it is important to use your voice properly, so that it does not get tired and you can speak as powerfully after hours of recording as before. Finally, it is very useful to be able to put different effects on your voice. Just think of the raspy character of Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, the barking explanations of Samson, the full voice of Kabouter Plop or the grunted insults exchanged in The Chronicles of Sabrina. Judiciously used voice effects can not only add color to characters, they are sometimes essential or almost automatically arise from emotional moments. So being able to use them correctly and maintain control over them without damaging your vocal cords is essential. What you learn As is the case with almost all of our courses, we teach you techniques from different approaches. For our singing lessons, these are Speech Level Singing (SLS), Estill Voice Training (EVT) and Complete Vocal Technique (CVT). Here are some things that will pass in review: • The similarities and differences between the three major singing techniques • Using support • The larynx, lips, and other organs that help control voice production • Add necessary twang • Add air or not • Different vocal modes (with CVT): neutral, curbing, overdrive and edge. • Variety of voice effects including: creaking, distortion, grunting, rattling, screaming, vibrato and ornamentation • For actors: relationship between voice color, effects and the playing of all kinds of characters • For actors: the relationship between stem kle Extras • Help with the CV • Assistance with admissions • Help in choosing the right equipment • Help with finding auditions • Syllabus with pdf of the book Complete Vocal Technique You can participate whenever you want!

Guitar Lessons - Creativity Music Guitar: make the music you like with the guitar
During my lessons we will find the most suitable way for you to express what you like most. We can learn either how to compose your music and how to play the music you like to listen to, playing both classic and/or electric guitar. We'll practice technique, music and repertoire on the guitar, from classical/acoustic to pop/rock/electronics or whatever you like. We'll practice both composition and improvisation. We'll also practice vocal intonation and rhythmic coordination. Then we'll have a look at the music theory and history, and above all we'll listen to a lot of good music. As you see, the teaching method is tailored on you and everything is really open. Just 2 rules: practice and have a good time! Creativity is not teachable! But everyone has his own creativity to express. Music is a good way to let your creativity coming out, especially guitar is the best and the most complete musical instrument to do it. Looking forward to hear from you!! Best, Leonardo

Get to know your singing voice! Singing technique lessons for every level!
In the singing lessons we will work with your own voice! We investigate where your points of improvement lie and what you are already good at. Are you a beginner? Then we focus on a basic formation of singing technique in combination with singing songs that you like to sing. Are you an experienced singer before? Then we go a little deeper into vocal technique by looking at where the difficulties lie for your voice with challenging songs. We get started with the songs you like to sing. I myself have been working for 4 years in a private music school where I give singing and piano lessons. I have a bachelor's degree in musical education and am studying a bachelor's degree in jazz singing at the Lemmens Institute. Hopefully see you soon! And don't hesitate to ask questions!

Albert
Violin and Music Theory lessons for all ages and levels
I'm a violinist currently doing a Master's in Music at Royal Conservatory in Ghent. I started playing violin at the age of 6, and studying with numerous professors made me realize how important an individualized pedagogical approach is for a good development. My aim is to motivate students to be creative and enjoy playing music, helping them express their own ideas. A relaxed and natural technique is always one of my focusses, to avoid future injuries and to find an ease while playing that will allow you to explore your musicality and feel free.
