About Me

My name is Jannes. I was born and raised in Flanders. I studied translation at the University of Antwerp and graduated a couple of years ago with highest honors. I’m specialised in Russian and Dutch. After graduating I started my current studies at the conservatory of Leuven, where I study violin.

Teaching is something that I reall enjoy. I guess it comes from my willingness to help people. I love to see people motivated and eager to learn and exchange knowledge and skills. I have worked as a language teacher for several private schools before and have given violin lessons in the past as well.

I’m very flexible in terms of what a learning process should look like, since everyone is different. Having mutual trust and being comfortable with each other is also very important to me.

Education

Bachelor in applied languages, University of Antwerp
Master in translation, University of Antwerp and Moscow State Linguistic University (exchange programme)
Bachelor in music, Violin, LUCA School of Arts (current study)

Experience / Qualifications

5 years of intensive language and translation training from different teachers in Belgium and Russia
Immersive Russian course in Ryazan
Experience in teaching Dutch to beginners, intermediate and advanced learners
Violin training from different teachers in different schools and masterclasses

Super
Great teacher!!☝🏾✨
Jannes is a very nice teacher: he has his own material and explains everything as many times as necessary. Since he's a linguist, he has a in-depth understanding of the Dutch language.
Ik heb een interessante en aangename eerste les achter de rug. Ook zeer vlotte communicatie/contact na de les. Ik kijk uit naar de volgende lessen :)
Il est très instinctif et prend bien le temps!

Jacob
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.

Electric and acoustic guitar techniques for begginers and for experts! Learn how to do solos and other techniques!
Now you have the oportunity to learn everything that you want about the techniques for the electric and acoustic guitars! For all the styles!! I worked as professional musician for many bands in Spain, I have played in many places and pubs, I have done many concerts and I also have experience in the studios, creating and recording because I worked for a Spanish discography during 3 years. I do lessons for all levels, and I can teach you all kinds of techniques and styles for the electric guitar in order to improve (scales, the greek modes yo improvise and make solos, tapping, swip picking, legatos...) and also for the acoustic guitar (air tap, tapping, percusive guitar, use different and original tunings to get new and rich sounds). I think that there are a lot of people that play guitar very good, so I allways try to find something new to make me different to others, and that is what I want to show you. I can make the lessons in English, French, Spanish and Catalan.

"Happiness is an art to be practiced, like the violin" John Lubbock
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, Currently a student in psychomotor skills, I have been playing the violin since I was 5 years old, today I really want to humbly transmit what I know !! :) It will be a question here of co-constructing the course with my student. These courses will be developed around: -bodies warm-ups - learning music theory (underlined by singing, body percussions, etc ...) -practice of the violin, of course, with or without sheet music support (ear work) -a time for self-expression with improvisation The important thing here is to take pleasure in living the music so I hope that these proposals make you want !! Beautiful day :) Lucile C.

Mariah
Private Cello Lessons - personalized cello instruction
I accept students of all ages and backgrounds, from a beginner level to a collegiate-preparatory level. I have been developing my teaching method for over ten years. My primary goal is to help my students understand the deep connections in themselves and between others that music can build. With the understanding that musical motivations are highly personalized, I work with each student to precisely define their goals and create a straightforward path towards achievement. My program is clear and concise, but highly adjusted for each individual. Starting with a strong foundation of technical work including scales, exercises, theoretical and note reading work, I ensure the optimal set up for each student to be able to play with confidence and comfort. I teach a variety of repertoire that is primarily classical, but I often supplement this with pieces from many other genres, which are personalized to excite each student. I encourage all of my students to participate in group-learning environments, and keep them and their parents apprised of camps, competitions, and other performance opportunities available in their area.

Cyrielle
Classical Guitar Classical / Folk - Solfège - History of Music
I obtained my Brevet de formation musical, as well as my patent and CFE of classical guitar in a conservatory in France and I wish to transmit my passion to anyone passionate or simply interested in learning the guitar. I give lessons in classical guitar, folk guitar (accompaniment) and music theory. The course of musical theory (solfège), will be given during the course of classical guitar, which is obligatory. For folk guitar lessons, however, it is possible to work from tablatures. Depending on the musical tastes, I choose the program and provide the scores of each piece and / or request the purchase of a specific study on which the student can rely. I adapt to the learning pace of each, as the work is done every day (15 to 30 minutes at least). The lessons are 45 minutes for children (from 8 years old) and go up to 1 hour or 1 hour 30 minutes for older children. (To be determined during the first lesson) and modular thereafter Courses for beginners or more advanced levels.

Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia.

I have a personal method where I combine both classical and commercial repertoire depending on the student’s preferences. I usually play four hands with my students as well and organize at least one concert a year with all my students where they can meet and share their experiences. If you are an enthusiast about piano competitions, we can also work on that together. I will guide and support you through all the steps of the learning experience.
