    Piano and Music Theory Lessons by an experienced teacher for children and adults at all levels

    Piano and music theory lessons in the comfort of your own home.
    Classical, pop and jazz!
    My lessons are structured around three major principles. First of all, they have to be fun. When students have fun, they are more enthusiastic and more motivated to learn. Secondly, the lessons should be interesting. There is always something new and useful to learn. And in third place, my lessons are efficient. I will help you study and practice in a more efficient way, so you'll get better and faster results, which will help in keeping you motivated as well!

    About Me

    Hello, I am a Belgian pianist and music theory teacher. And I have also worked as Dutch language teacher!

    As a music teacher, I taught kids and adults, at all levels. My lessons are structured around three major principles. First of all, they have to be fun. When students have fun, they are more enthusiastic and more motivated to learn. Secondly, the lessons should be interesting. There is always something new and useful to learn. And in third place, my lessons are efficient. I will help you study and practice in a more efficient way, so you'll get better and become more independent.
    I am trained as a classical pianist, but I can probably also help you with pop or jazz.

    As a Dutch teacher, I have mainly worked with French speaking Belgians and expatriates. I taught Dutch in a business context and at a few colleges.

    Education

    I studied music and art history at Lemmensinstituut Leuven, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and the Royal Conservatory in Brussels. I specialised in harpsichord, historical performance practice, music theory and piano.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have taught piano since I was studying music at university (2000 - now).
    I have taught Dutch from October 2006 until December 2011, and from September 2015 until now.
    Dutch class for teenagers and adults at all levels. We decide the structure of the lessons based on your needs, but I will make sure that all classes will be fun, interesting and efficient. My goal is to help you study the language faster and with better results. I can provide you with a detailed study plan for a set of lessons, and there will be a follow up with homework and other tasks. There are three different types of classes: - Conversation class for intermediate and advanced students: practice speaking Dutch by improving your vocabulary, creating and maintaining good habits regarding sentence structure, and work on pronunciation. - Grammar in practice lessons for beginners and intermediate students: In each lesson, we will focus on one grammar point. I will explain you the do's and don'ts, and we'll practice the newly learned grammar with written and oral exercises. - Writing class for intermediate and advanced students: In these classes, I will help you improve your Dutch writing assignments. For more info, please contact me.
