Sylvain
Cours de flutes, classical, improvisation, world music ...
Graduated in France for a classical training, I offer courses of flutes (from piccolo to octobasse via bass and viola!). The content of the courses will be adapted to the needs of each one. I practice improvisation for quite a few years, the Brazilian music (choro) is one of my specialties. I also play in the French Flutes Orchestra, and I share with pleasure my practices and sound research such as multiphonic, flute and voice, circular breathing, whistle tones and other flatterzung! Music theory will be taught naturally if necessary. I can give classes in French, Portuguese (Brazil), English, Dutch.

Professional guitarist graduated from the Conservatory (DEM in France) gives guitar lessons all styles and all levels in Brussels
I graduated from the Conservatoire de Nice CNRR (France) in jazz guitar. I studied there for seven years with renowned professors such as Jean Paul Ceccarelli (Sting), Pierre Bertrand, Robert Persi or Philippe Petit. My teaching method is flexible and I adapt it to the needs and desires of the student. We will discuss the technical work on the instrument, the knowledge of the neck and chords and the rhythm. With or without solfege. The goal is to provide the student with the necessary tools so that he can continue learning by himself at home.

Nikos
Classical Guitar with professional musician in Brussels/ Cours de guitare classique a Bruxelles
Hello, My name is Nikos and I am 27 years old. I am currently pursuing my music studies in the Royal Conservatory of Brussels along with renowned professor Mrs Antigoni Goni. I teach classical guitar using scores, not tablatures. All students from the very first lesson use the instrument . My method with my students is to develop bases to approach a musical score through the knowledge of solfeggio and theory . I am able to teach in English and Greek having also a basic knowledge of French or Dutch. I can travel throughout Brussels Region Thank you, Nikos

Learn the piano, a reality now. Educational courses for all ages, all levels. In addition to piano lessons, music theory is also taught. The learning method varies from student, if he wants a piece we will work it according to his tastes.

Nathan
Guitar and Language Course (French - English)
The guitar lesson will provide an introduction for a person with no concept on it. We will work very gradually the work of scales, minor / major chords, 7th, blues, funk and many others in order to asséir the bases and be able to explore the different styles thereafter. The language classes (French and English) are given to improve the language expression and / or correct the errors that the student encounters. It will be in the form of oral exercises, written, vocabulary

Daniel
Violin lessons, viola and Solfege for all the people passionate a little by instruments
I offer my service to people who are interested in classical music no matter what level. It's nice enough to play together with friends, with our children, or just listen to our kids playing a few times at home, playing a little bit of songs at Christmas, on someone's birthday. The Solfege is a useful thing to understand the ABC of the score, possibly can help us to play even the piano too. Do not hesitate to contact me, the absolute happiness is not far from the music, it is necessary just to approach it with a few stroke of hands.

Martin
Enjoyable piano, violin, guitar, music theory lessons and exam prep
With 27 years experience and success as a qualified Music teacher (PGCE), I specialise in giving high quality, structured lessons on the piano, violin and guitar that are tailored to each student and which are designed to offer attainable goals as well as being enjoyable and fun for the student. The key and essence of my lessons is for the student to always enjoy learning as much as I enjoy nurturing, guiding and helping the student to improve. I have a history of successful exam results in all of the Associated Board Exam colleges as well as with Trinity Rock School. I am happy to offer lessons for students who wish to learn for enjoyment as much as to pass exams .

Shirine
Classical guitar, folk and accompaniment lessons
I am a medical student, graduated in music theory and classical guitar from the music conservatory of Tournai. I have been a member for 2 years of a musical project where I had the opportunity to give music lessons, to accompany singers and musicians. The courses that I propose are courses of classical guitar, folk guitar (picking, arpeggios, ...) for accompaniments of songs or for "fingerstyle" and finally, guitar accompaniment (chords to accompany songs). I offer these courses for beginners and for those who have already practiced this instrument but would like to deepen it.
