Guitar lessons for kids, teens and adults

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Guitar teacher for many years, I am passionate about jazz, blues, folk and fingerpicking.

My classes address in the greatest relaxation, the bases of these different styles. Chaining chords in a fluid way, exploring different rhythms, correctly placing a melody, trying improvisation (jazz, blues, rock), developing finger-playing techniques (classical or folk), are all elements at the center of learning. These are deepened by notions of musical theory and / or solfeggio.

Teacher trained in the "Arc-en-sons" method, I also teach children from 4 years

Classes are for Beginner and Intermediate levels.

Individual lessons (20, 30, 45 or 60 minutes).

Group lessons (60 or 90 minutes).

Possibility of collective workshops (3h, min 4 participants).

Hope to meet you!

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Guitarist for over 20 years, I teach guitar in various styles (jazz, rock, funk, blues, fingerpicking, bossa nova ...).

The children's lessons are based on the Arc-en-Sons method, allowing to start the guitar from 4 years old. The learning is based on the senses of the child (hearing, sight, touch), play and singing. Once acquired the technical subtleties of the instrument, this method opens to any form of teaching of the guitar, classical or other. We learn music theory directly on the instrument and melodies known on tablatures.

For teenagers and adults the courses include:

- reading notes

- Learning chords and application on known songs.

- mediator and finger play technique

- learning improvisation jazz, blues and rock.

I give lessons at home or via skype

Opportunity to try a course without owning a guitar

Individual or group lessons (4 students max)

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I am naturally patient and calm. I currently give classes to 25-30 students aged 4 to 65 years old.
My method is not fixed and adapts to the objectives and level of each. Depending on the musical tastes, I work pieces of progressive difficulty by discovering or deepening certain techniques specific to particular guitar styles (jazz, blues, classical, bossa nova, ...). In class, theory can precede practice, accompany it or follow it.
My greatest satisfaction: to see progress.

Would you like to learn to play the violin? Violin lessons for everyone!
I am a professional violinist graduated with distinction at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Master) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from Codarts (Rotterdam). I am currently pursuing a masters degree in Music Education at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. I teach students of all ages and levels. I have nine years of teaching experience in the Netherlands ( privately and at music schools: Hart Muziekschool in Haarlem and Vioolstudio 020! in Amsterdam). In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination. The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes.

Trumpetmania: The new trumpet school in Brussels
Trumpetmania is a new trumpet school in Brussels whose teaching method is unique in Belgium. It is based on the student's memory technique (visual, auditory, bodily). We are all different and it is not the pupil who must adapt to the pedagogical project but it is this one which must be thought according to him. This method is also based on the flourishing of music. Our courses are not limited to the learning of the instrument as such, we place great emphasis on the assimilation of music by the body. For this we train the student in body rhythm and we include outings, among other sports, in our program. The teachers of the school are specialized in various fields: jazz, classical, instrument technique, improvisation technique, ... which will allow the student to choose according to his desires and meet his expectations. He will also benefit from a personalized follow-up. Our courses are open at all levels. It is the student who will determine with his teacher his schedules. This flexibility will leave him great freedom in organizing his schedule. The school curriculum is spread over three years and will allow the student to acquire a knowledge of a large part of scales, rhythms, to develop his musical ear, a culture of the great moments of the music and to have a better knowledge of his body through the approach of rhythm and breathing. The perspectives sought by Trumpetmania for the student is that he can quickly be confronted with the happiness of playing in a group.

Giorgos
I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Camille
Electric guitar, acoustic, folk lessons in Uccle
I seek above all to put forward the game with the instrument, and connect it to the theory. You do not have to know music theory at your fingertips to learn how to play an instrument, and if you want to progress more effectively and understand what you are doing and why you are doing it, the theory becomes an asset. There is no age limit when the courses I offer, suitable for both the youngest and the oldest, whether the practice of the instrument or solfeggio. We will approach the report to the instrument, with a method that focuses on the qualitative rather than the quantitative. The education of the ear is essential, with step-by-step progression and beneficial background work for the instrument. The learning of harmony, improvisation and reading are paths that we can explore at your convenience. Finally we will adapt the course to suit your style preferences and pieces that inspire you. Music is and must remain a pleasure and a passion.
