    If English isn't your first language but you enjoy singing commercial Western Pop songs and wish to improve, then this is for you. It's difficult to get things right and be authentic when you don't understand the words, the context or the idioms (sayings) beings used. Understanding the words, the meaning and context is the basis of developing your singing performance. You'll learn how to pronounce the words correctly and understand exactly what you're singing about! Lessons can be 30 minutes or 60 minutes and sessions will cover the following (as well as so much more!): - Pronunciation & Articulation - Meaning - Vocabulary - Accent - Confidence - Fluency - Accuracy - Context - Delivery - Form & Structure Basic spoken English is required as that's the language we'll be using. However, I am patient and flexible and will tailor lessons at an appropriate pace dependent on individual needs. Lessons will be fun and engaging and will help you to develop English as a second language, develop general confidence and performance skills.
    Speaking in English with me will help to build your confidence, speech, vocabulary and dialect. I am a patient and well-spoken native English speaker. I am also a trained vocal coach and work within the education sector. What are your interests and hobbies? What would you like to speak about? I am here to facilitate your needs and I will be able to help you with the following, dependent on level: - Basic speech - Vocabulary - Pronunciation - Articulation - Enunciation - Diction -Dialect Sessions will be enjoyable, educational and informative and I look forward to speaking with you soon :)

    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

    GUITAR AND / OR ZANGLES - Antwerp and surroundings - private
    GUITAR and ZANGLES: For beginners and advanced, young and old. Everyone receives a personal lesson plan and objectives. You don't have to know theory. The lessons take place in a pleasant demo room. At your own pace I will get to know you the guitar and its possibilities so that you can quickly play your favorite songs. If you come to sing, I will lift you to unprecedented heights through my knowledge and years of experience. I like to coach motivated people who can make time to develop musically. I expect commitment and then it can go quickly. Several students of mine are now enjoying some success in the music bizz (not that this should be everyone's goal). Partly because of their perseverance but also because of the training they received. I am a music coach and guide you in a pleasant, successful way through an educational period. If you want more details or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Musical greetings, Danny

    Work your diction to have a beautiful voice and / or a beautiful accent / Paris.
    This course is aimed at those who evolve in the French language and of which it is not the native language. But also to people with a strong accent and who would like to reduce it. The work that I propose is based on my speaking techniques from theater and singing and will allow you to have a beautiful diction, speak less quickly and more clearly. This course is also intended for professionals of the communication (singers, comedians, journalists, lawyers, doctors, lecturers) wishing to develop their oratory potential or to address a specific question. Looking forward to reading you.
