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

Jannes or not Jannes, that's the question! :) :) Très bon premier cours!!!
Ik ben zeer tevreden. Bij de eerste pianoles legde ik uit dat ik liever akkoorden en fijne deuntjes wilde leren dan de echte klassieke composities. De stukken die hij me nu voorstelt beantwoorden helemaal aan mijn verwachtingen. Jannes is ook een leerkracht die de zaken helder en geduldig kan uitleggen, en ook ruimte creëert voor eigen inbreng. Ik heb een uur les om de twee weken, maar als ik in die periode een concrete vraag heb, dan bellen we even of sturen we elkaar een filmpje door zodat ik weer verder kan. Dat contact tussendoor is niet alleen heel handig, het is ook bijzonder motiverend. Tijdens de lockdown kreeg ik online les en dat ging veel beter dan verwacht. Kortom, ik ben zeer tevreden.
Mijn lessen met Jannes zijn heel leuk en leerzaam! De inhoud van de lessen wordt samen bepaald en is gericht op de bewustwording van het lichaam in combinatie met het instrument en heeft als doel om zowel spelkwaliteit als -plezier te verhogen. Door oefeningen met- en zonder instrument leer je het lichaam beter kennen en leer je je lichaam en geest beter samenwerken om tot een betere klank te komen. Voor deze kennis en oefeningen heeft Jannes mij ook in contact gebracht met andere professoinals, hij doet dus zoveel als mogelijk om zijn leerlingen op maat te helpen! Ik heb gemerkt dat het beter leren bewegen de muziek meer tot haar recht laat komen dan veel repetitief oefenen. Mijn plezier in vioolspelen is hierdoor zeker teruggekeerd en verbeterd. Jannes is heel flexibel in plaats en tijd om les te geven. Ook tijdens de coronapandemie zijn onze lessen door kunnen gaan en daarnaast ondersteunt hij waar nodig (en gewenst) via tekst en geluidsopnamen op e-mail of Skype. Mentaal en fysiek kan ik deze lessen echt aanraden!
I’m very pleased with Jannes. He is a conscientious teacher and makes sure to adapt the lesson to my needs and aspirations, whether it is in Russian or Dutch. Jannes additionally works on offering a great variety of content to work on, making the lessons continuously interesting. My knowledge and confidence level have definitely increased since I started working with Jannes.
I really enjoy the Dutch lessons with Jannes! He is professional, very flexible and well organized teacher. I would especially recommend him for the Russian-speaking students as he's fluent in Russian.
...

Thanks to its rich sound and endless possibilities, piano has become one of the most played instruments. Do you also like the sound of this instrument, but no idea where to start? I’m here to help you with the basics. I’m a conservatory student (violin) who has played piano at an intermediate level for several years now. I speak Dutch, English, Russian and basic French.

Music is my passion and it is a joy for me to pass it on: My educational experience and my training allow me to teach music with games and playful methods in order to learn and play with pleasure, and I adapts the pieces and methods according to the level of the students and their ages. La musique est ma passion et c'est une joie pour moi de la transmettre : Mon expérience pédagogique et ma formation me permettent d'enseigner la musique avec des jeux et des méthodes ludiques afin d'apprendre et de jouer avec plaisir, et j'adapte les morceaux et méthodes en fonction du niveau de l'élève et de son âge.

Harp and Music Theory/Solfege lessons, for adults and children. Harpe et Solfège cours pour enfants et adults
FR Je suis une harpiste italienne qui actuellement vit et travaille à Bruxelles. Je suis diplômée (Master of Music in Harp - soliste et orchestre) avec grande distinction en Italie et puis j'ai choisi de poursuivre mes études au Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. A côté de ça, je continue ma carrière de soliste, de harpiste dans l'orchestre et d'enseignant, en appréciant chaque aspect de ceux-ci. Je suis une professeur passionnée et j'ai plus de 10 ans d'expérience dans l'enseignement de la harpe, du solfège et de l'harmonie à plusieurs niveaux, à partir des enfants aux adultes. J'ai travaillé soit comme professeur privée pendant des années, soit dans l'école de musique de ma ville natale en Italie (Scuola di Musica "Luigi Rachel"). J'adore créer une atmosphère d'apprentissage positive, permettant à l'étudiant(e) de se sentir à l'aise et stimulé(e), qu'il/elle soit un(e) musicien(ne) débutant(e) ou avancé(e). Chaque étudiant(e) a sa propre méthode d'étude faite sur mesure pour progresser à son rythme et j'écoute avec attention chaque demande, afin de booster son attitude naturelle pour l'apprentissage. Je porte une attention particulière aux préférences de l'élève, en termes de répertoire et d'objectifs, en arrangeant également certaines partitions musicales qui pourraient ne pas être destinées à la harpe premièrement. Ces cours s'adressent aussi bien aux amateurs qu'aux musicien(ne)s professionnel(le)s, jeunes ou adultes. Ma langue maternelle est l'italien, mais je parle aussi couramment l'anglais et le français. J'ai hâte de vous rencontrer, Eleonora EN I am an italian harpist currently living and working in Brussels. I graduated (Master of Music in Harp - soloist and orchestra) with first class honours in Italy and then I have decided to continue my studies at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. Meanwhile, I have been going on with my soloist, orchestral and teaching career, enjoying every aspect of it. I am an enthusiastic teacher and I have more than 10 years experience in teaching harp, solfège, music theory and harmony on many levels, from children to adults. I have been working both as a private teacher and in my hometown's school of music in Italy (Scuola di Musica "Luigi Rachel"). I love to create a positive learning environment allowing the student to feel comfortable and stimulated, whether he/she is a beginner or an advanced musician. Every student has a tailored method of study for progressing at their own pace and I will carefully listen to every request. I pay close attention to the student's preferences, in terms of repertoire and goals, also arranging some musical scores that might not be intended for the harp in the first place. These classes are either intended for amateurs or aspiring professional musicians, young or adult learners. My mother tongue is Italian, but I am also fluent in English and French. I'm looking forward to meeting you, Eleonora

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.

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.
