    Sara
    A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons
    Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

    Private lessons of trumpet and solfege for all levels
    I am a student at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in master 2 trumpet. I am French and I arrived 4 years ago in Brussels by being accepted in one of the most prestigious conservatories of Belgium. In Master 1 I had the happiness to leave one year in Erasmus Italy in Rome, essential artistic capital especially musically. I have already taught the trumpet by giving private lessons and classes can be done in French, English and Italian. My goal: to make you feel more than one with your instrument and to have fun when you practice it. Having experienced several teaching methods of trumpet teaching across different countries, whether you are beginners, advanced, adults or children, amateurs or in order to become professional I try to adapt my best knowledge pedagogy according to your expectations And above all without forgetting to share a maximum of musical happiness with you. Having finished the conservatory in music theory I can also give courses in this subject. If you have any other questions do not hesitate to contact me on the site. Hoping to share a piece of music with you, see you soon. Thank you

    Yuliana
    Solfege and awakening lessons by the experienced teacher
    Solfege courses that aim to develop your ear and your potential as a composer. To be able to arrange any song, knowledge of music theory and harmony is necessary. The progressive method (or intensive) quite logical that requires just a little more effort at the beginning ;-))

    Edoardo
    Modern Guitar Lesson (electric and acoustic guitar) from beginners level to professionals levels.
    As a guitar teacher, I design a personalized method for each student to be fun and challenging. During guitar lessons, I clearly explain music theory by applying it directly to the instrument. I specialize in modern guitar: Rock, Pop, Blues. As an expert in electronic music, I teach using software like Ableton and Logic Pro from scratch to a very advanced level.

    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.

    Shaya
    Classical Double-Bass, Improvisation and music theory lessons!
    Professional double bass teacher gives double bass and improvisation lessons to children and adults, all levels in Brussels and environments Passionate about the world of music and bass, I developed a method that allows everyone, children and adults, to discover this world through pleasure, to make rapid progress, and consequently to invest always more to arrive at real performances. Parallel to the mastery of the instrument and the ear, I teach the awakening of the music to the classes of young children, the sound poetry (sounds of mouth) as well as the instrumental improvisation in all age groups . The relation to the instrument is a relation to the soul and the body. That's why I conceive a global, playful and philosophical approach to music adapted to everyone's needs. In my classes, I develop creativity, spontaneity, the desire to go beyond myself, the sense of oneself and the other. Thanks to my studies in different regions of the planet (Israel, France, Germany, United States, Belgium) I was able to broaden my musical horizons, to deepen my knowledge and my mastery of the instrument (I play for example as well with the German bow with the French bow or the pizzicato). I like to experiment with the sounds of the double bass in all the range of its possibilities and to allow the students this same step. My playful approach to music also weaves excellent contact with learners, children and adults alike.

    Harp and Music Theory Lessons for Students of All Ages, Levels, and Backgrounds
    I'm a professional harpist who graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in Music with extensive teaching experience in the United States and Belgium. I am offering harp and music theory lessons to students of all backgrounds, levels, and ages. I am currently in the process of completing my Doctor of Musical Arts at the CUNY Graduate Center. I hope to transfer the skills and knowledge I have obtained from working with some of the most renowned teachers to my own students.

    Réginald
    Learn Cello and music theory for beginner and intermediate.
    Music is a hobby as it may be a job in its own right. It is important when you start or when you are more advanced to take classes with a natural person who can give examples, advice and provide a good follow up. Being a student to become a musician in an orchestra and practicing music theory and my instrument for over 15 years, I would be able to discover music or strengthen the bases for more advanced people. I propose a teaching adapted to the level and the envy of the pupil (for the style of music in particular)
