    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.

    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 nine 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.
