Harp Course: The Harp "otherwise" (Pedal or Celtic)

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My name is Pia, I am a professional harpist-singer, composer and arranger.

I have been playing the harp for over 20 years, studied classical music for 10 years and then moved on to other styles and created my own musical projects.

I like teaching the harp "otherwise".

For beginners, we will start, of course, with the basics of technique.
For more advanced harpists, we can explore different styles, approach the rhythmic harp, improvisation, different jazz standards, try arrangements of pieces known to your requests, and even include singing, if you wish :)

Schedules will be defined together.

Here are some points of my biography

-Participation in the show The Voice France in the team of Louis Bertignac (2012)

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Passionate about music and meetings.

I started the music at the age of 6, with this beautiful instrument that is the harp and I never stopped :)

I studied the harp for 10 years in academy, participated in many competitions, while attending music theory, choir, improvisation and musical composition classes.
I also started the guitar and the piano in self-study, in parallel with my lessons. And I also started singing.
Once my studies of harp finished, I went on a trip, in Cuba for a few months, for the music, but also for the human experience and the Spanish language!
I then participated in the show The Voice France, in the team of Louis Bertignac.
Subsequently, I trained in harp-jazz at Berklee College of Music in Boston and then Valence (Spain), from 2014 to 2017.
I then spent 2 months in South America (Colombia and Brazil) to broaden my musical knowledge and I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2017.
After that, I lived in New York for 3 years where I explored the music scene with my music group.
I am now back in Belgium where I teach the harp at the Royal Conservatory of Liège.

Music is part of my life, I could not do without it. And being able to teach this passion, to transmit this knowledge, is for me indispensable and magical!

I hope we will have the opportunity to share a lot together!

Génial ! Pour moi, une adulte, qui n'a jamais fait de chant de ma vie et qui sort complètement de ma zone de confort en me lançant là-dedans, j'appréhendais la catastrophe, que je n'ose pas sortir un seul son, mais Pia m'a tout de suite mise super à l'aise, elle est agréable, on se sent en confiance très vite, et le cours s'est fait dans la bonne humeur, super ! :)
Great teacher! Really makes it fun to learn with her.
The kids loved the lesson.
Excellents cours avec une excellente professeure ! Pia vous accueille avec le sourire et vous met directement à l'aise. Elle s'adapte à vos besoins et à vos envies, ses cours sont instructifs et interactifs, adaptés à tous niveaux et compétences. C'est un plaisir d'apprendre la musique avec elle !
Pia est non seulement une prof géniale mais aussi une personne très ouverte avec une personnalité aussi riche que la musique du monde ! Chaque cours est une nouvelle aventure et j'ai beaucoup appris grâce à elle ! Ce que j'admire chez elle, c'est son professionnalisme. Elle arrive à nous pousser au meilleur de nous-mêmes, à réaliser des notes, qui fût un temps, semblaient impossibles à faire, par exemple. Sa méthodologie permet d'acquérir plus rapidement les connaissances et de nous ouvrir grâce à différents exercices qu'elle propose. Ses cours sont toujours bien organisés et structurés. Et la plus grande touche finale, Pia peut jouer de plusieurs instruments de musique, ce qui nous donne envie d'approfondir le savoir du monde musical ! Je recommande vivement les cours auprès de cette artiste très talentueuse ! Merci Pia !

Martine
Singing lessons for teens and adults (25 years of experience)
My name is Martine, I have been a jazz singer and voice teacher for 25 years. I offer private or group lessons, for teenagers and adults, tailor-made, in a friendly atmosphere! For the technical part (voice pose, abdominal breathing) a little rigor is required, but from the first class, you sing the song of your choice! No music theory required! If you are a beginner: get to know your voice and let yourself be surprised! Singing will make you express emotions, strengthen your self-confidence, and let's never forget that singing is above all a pleasure! A singing lesson energizes and calms at the same time. When we sing, we feel good! If you already have a technical background, come and deepen your interpretation, your posture, your presence and your stage confidence, prepare an audition, a concert, a studio, ... If your voice "lets go", you lose potential, do not hesitate to come and do a vocal assessment, I work with voice professionals! Classes are given every day of the week, afternoons and evenings. The individual lesson lasts 1 hour. The frequency is to be fixed according to your budget and your availability. Group lessons are organized on request. I also give singing lessons at home, in the south of Brussels. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information!

Matilda
Violin, Viola, Music theory and composition lessons
One-to-one music lessons inspired by the teachings of Suzuki, Havas, Hoppenot, and Galway. The lessons are adjusted according to age, level, and interests. The most important is that the student will learn in an enjoyable way for them. It is only possible to take 45 min. lessons when the student receives more than one lesson a week -which is highly recommended for anyone that might want to become a professional musician. Lessons longer than an hour are also possible for anyone over 14 years old. Other possibilities, a combination of instrumental/theory lessons and prices can be discussed.

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.

Piano, Composition, Music Theory, Harmony and counterpoint
Learning music, is directly connected to the cognition system of our mind, and our cognition is the first step to perceive the music, so it is important to understand music and perform it. I am proposing class of Piano, Composition and Music Theory and writings. In the class of Piano depending on the student's wishes, we work on different methods, from learning music just as an activity to students who are wishing to continue their profession as a musician. Class of composition has the same algorithm as the piano class, the method selection is based on student's wishes. Music Theory is proposed in both classes of composition and piano on the side but for the students who wish to learn music theory separately with more concentration, I propose this class as a separated class too. Class of Harmony and writings actually has the same situation as music theory classes but students in the class of composition will be more specialized in harmony and counterpoint than piano students and of course, this course is proposed as a separated class too.

Guitar lessons (also by WEBCAM), harmony, improvisation ...
Hello everyone ! I am 39 years old, I am a professional guitarist and graduate composer. My rich and varied musical journey, going from "Art Rock" to Classic, passing by French song and currently jazz allowed me to acquire a beautiful experience that I like to share with my students. Obviously passionate about my favorite instrument, I am just as passionate about music theory. From baroque counterpoint to jazz harmony, from classical orchestration to digital music publishing, I have always thought that understanding the sound universe multiplies perspectives, opens up new horizons! My method is simple and has always proven to be effective: working in symbiosis with pure instrumental technique and the general understanding of music, its cogs which seem to the novice musician so mysterious. In addition to basic instrument learning, I also teach: 🎸️ Experimental instrumental techniques 🎸️ Work of virtuosity 🎸️ Picking game 🎤️ How to go well with singing 🎵️ Arrangement 🎵️ Composition 🎵️ Harmony (classical or jazz) 🎵️ Improvisation 💻️ MAO (Computer Aided Music) Exploring musical styles: #Pop #EXP #Classique #Electro #Jazz #Jazz Manouche #Art & Hard Rock #Chanson Française #Blues #Funk (60's / 70's) 🎥️ Possibility of lessons by webcam ️🇬🇧️ I also speak English 🏡️ I give lessons mainly at my home: Châtelain district in Ixelles, many transport nearby: 🚊️ bus (54), tram (92, 94, 81.) and metro (Louise). 🐸️ GREAT BEGINNERS welcome! (no prior knowledge necessary) see you soon ^^

"Dare to improvise!" : Collective stage improvised singing
WHAT - Collective stage improvised singing Two days to dare to improvise! The circlesong is a musical structure inspired by the singer Bobby McFerrin in which a person is at the center of a group arranged in a circle and freely improvises small musical patterns (loops) that she distributes to parts of the circle and that she changes according to her inspiration. This course is for anyone who wants to enjoy a weekend of diving in the world both crazy and meditative improvised singing. During this internship, I will propose games and tools aiming at gradually bathing you in the practice of circlesong. We will put ourselves in the position of the enthusiastic explorer who thirsts for discovery by alternating between moments of experimentation of improvisation, moments of research of cohesion and listening within the group, moments of work on rhythm, precision and arrangement, moments of attention to our body language ... We will approach all this in different forms of collective cacophony where everyone sings for themselves without anyone hearing it, the jovial solo where a person expresses himself in front of the group and delights in the support she receives from the singers who accompany him. The singing time will be interspersed with small exchanges to verbalize our feelings, our questions and all that wants to express themselves. The objective of this internship is to put a foot inside the circle and go taste what it feels like to be at the center of a group that sings with you and for you. And for those who choose to stay in the circle of singers, it will be the opportunity to savor the auditory delights that will emerge from our voices while working their place in the choir (comfort and pleasure in repetition, precision voice ...).

Songwriter singing, production and composition teacher
I propose adapted courses for all those who wish to learn to record their piece, to produce them and to mix them! I have been working for four years as a topliner (melody and speech) and producer for various record companies based in London. My job is to compose and produce music for other artists, meeting their specific requirements and in various musical styles. My professionalism and my rigor allowed me to develop a solid network in Europe and I had the chance to collaborate with many producers with whom I learned a lot. Among my greatest hits, I wrote a song in a film nominated at the Academy Awards in 2018, a title in collaboration with the Belgian DJ Sem Thomasson released on the label Warner Belgium and more recently the next single of a group South Korean very promising "Stray Kids" whose release is scheduled for 2020.
