Gilles
Jazz-pop-rock pianist gives piano, rhythm and music theory lessons in Zellik.
🎼Will I like the piano to be played with music? Ik heb nog vrije plaatsen 😉 Children and adults 🎶 All you need to know My name is Gilles and I give private piano lessons for all ages and levels. I adapt to the expectations and abilities of the student. I obtained a Master's degree in jazz piano at the Flemish Conservatory in Brussels, accompanied by a teaching diploma. But studies were never enough for me: what I love is music: playing it and transmitting it. The jazz trio Base-12, which I created, released a first album in 2019: it was very well received on the media scene. I am also the leader of my pop group TocToc. My artist name is Max Wolly, you can listen to me on Spotify, iTunes, etc. But enough about me (however, I had to reassure you about my musical and educational background). Are you already a keyboard expert and want to improve? In a short time, you will dare to start improvising on jazz standards: thanks to the very concrete and progressive exercises that I will offer you, and the audio examples that I will share with you, you will quickly discover a talent for solos. Are you just taking your first steps and want to progress? I find in every beginner the seed of genius (yes yes, I swear, everyone, whatever their level, has a seed of genius): you will be amazed to succeed very quickly in interpreting some legendary pieces of boogie, rock , swing, pop or bossa nova. The rest of the story will depend above all on your motivation, that is to say the pleasure you take in playing. For those who like technical details, know that I work with the Faber piano Adventures books, which I find very cool. But over time I also made this observation: each musician, each student, is unique. So there is no one way to teach. Long live tailor-made! I can also support you and coach you as best as possible to enter the music conservatory in the jazz section. My two favorite jazz pianists have always been Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. And I had the chance to study and work on my music from Bill Evans, Joey Calderazzo, etc. It is possible to take individual group lessons (2 to 3 students max of the same level having lessons at the same time) or individual lessons.

Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Making Music Fun: Learn Violin, Singing, or Piano!
Billy Joel said, "I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." This, too, is something I believe in, and I wish to share my own love of music with prospective students. I offer violin, voice, and piano lessons to students of all ages. Lessons range from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on student's level. I believe in meeting students where they are at, so we will work together to find goals and objectives that suit you. (Or, if you have no goals and simply want to make some noise, that's good too!) I hope to inspire students to find their own voices and delve into their creativity.

GUITAR LESSON for ALL LEVELS ✨ taught by a seasoned CONSERVATOIRE PROFESSOR! 🎶
The lessons can be conducted in English 🇬🇧, Spanish 🇪🇸 , or Italian 🇮🇹 , ensuring accessibility for all students. Age and musical preferences are not limitations; with qualitative daily practice, rather than sheer quantity, progress can be swiftly observed. 💪🏼 🎶 My approach to classical guitar lessons is centered on tailoring them to each student's individual needs and potential. I prioritize fostering enthusiasm and motivation as primary tools for conveying technical and theoretical concepts, alongside a deep love for music. Lessons are open to students of all ages and skill levels. 🚀 The focus of the course revolves around the joy of playing music. Your favorite genres and pieces will take center stage, with a thorough exploration of their codes and secrets. Together, we'll delve into technical exercises and learn to play pièces of your choice or mine, enriching your repertoire and enhancing your playing style. 🤩 For example, we can reimagine pieces by applying advanced techniques such as the CAGED system, incorporating new chords, positions, and techniques like arpeggios and fingerstyle playing. This expands the instrument's capabilities and your playing skills, ensuring continuous progress and improvement. 👨🏻‍🏫 Upon request, the program also includes theoretical studies, which are presented in an accessible manner suitable for both beginners and experienced musicians. Exercises, pieces, and theoretical explanations are structured in a progressive order of difficulty.🔥 The theoretical program covers a range of topics, including guitar tuning, chord theory, scales and modes, finger picking techniques, strumming patterns, metronome practice, learning favorite songs, improvisation, harmony, melody, and rhythm theory.⚡️ Together, we'll embark on a musical journey tailored to your goals and aspirations, ensuring a fulfilling and enriching experience with the classical guitar.🔝☄️

Cheslava
Piano and Singing tutor with 5 years experience and professional education
From my childhood I have been studying music and art: sang in choir and solo, played piano, painted, studied music history and literature, solfeggio. Later in college I have also learned choir conducting, had ensemble and choir singing lessons, cultural studies. During last year in university I had pedagogy practice at university and at private art school (where I worked as a music tutor before the war - piano, voice). I truly enjoyed working with students. They all were different age (8 - 40+ years old) and level. But all were very interesting and work was pleasant. My education was very various: my core subjects were conducting, choir, voice, piano. So it allowed me to work with children, teens and adults with quite wide range of interests and needs: some students needed/wanted to learn particular composition(s), sometimes pop songs arrangements, some were interested in “introduction” to the music, some wanted to renew skills they gained in their childhood and continue their journey to the music world. In addition I prepared presentations (which contained information about cultural and historical background and musical and character/art analysis). So after graduation from choir conducting faculty (which allowed me to deepen my knowledge in many important compatible branches) I concentrated on studying classical singing and piano, expanded my cultural studies and analysis knowledge, practiced solfeggio and harmony.
