About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I am a teacher of singing and piano. I have been playing music since I was 5 years old. I started with classical piano, then pop and jazz. My second instrument was singing, at the beginning classical, then pop and jazz. I studied in pop / jazz singing at university. So during my classes, I often go to the piano. I think this is a big advantage. I am ideal for pianist (s) / singer (s) in the making, to improve their talent on both sides, learn to be accompanied. The motto that characterizes my classes is: Learn while having fun, in the fun. Never forget that all this is for the sake of music and pleasure. I like to see the evolution of my students, I adapt courses to everyone and I quickly detect their motivation and seeks to fan their enthusiasm to achieve, to excel. I love to pass on my passion and to enrich and grow the student of an experience he will remember for a long time. I connect well with young children, teenagers, adults, professionals, retirees. I have a portable recording studio. I am comfortable with sound recording, microphone technique. It is possible with me to record your demos for contests, demo, etc.


In the case of a 60-minute singing class, I begin with exercises of breathing and muscle tone. (10 minutes) (Note that I spend a lot more time on this aspect in the first class because it is the base and that it is very important) Then I follow with a vocal warming and auditory training. I check the student's progress, give him concrete examples, answer his questions, and correct him if necessary so that he can perform well in his moments of individual practice. I show him how to practice. (15-20 minutes) The number of new exercises varies depending on the student's assessment at the time of the course. I show him how to exercise the new exercise. Send him the material (recording on the piano mp3) to repeat it. Then, proposed by the student and approved by the teacher, we apply the new instructions in a song. (30 minutes) We apply technique, interpretation. I accompany especially at the beginning to find the right tone, tempo, interpretation. I send the frame (mp3) for the student to practice.

Hope to meet you!

Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.

Bastien
Classical saxophone / contemporary / improvisational approach / harmonic understanding / basic solfège
Student at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. From practical lessons to theoretical notions, I know how to adapt to the student and his interests to provide a course that really brings him the elements that will allow him to quickly flourish in the musical field. With already 4 years of course experience in non-profit organizations and in particular, I usually train students of all ages, beginners or more advanced. I am open to a large number of musical styles, current or old, focusing my thought on a "musical whole". I currently specialize in classical and contemporary saxophone but I am also very open to improvisation and live music such as jazz and the styles that derive from it, but also to electronic music. My final goal is to allow the student to express his ideas in music, and that he really evolves and flourishes in what pleases him. I take beginners without any knowledge of music theory. I am available in: * Region of Brussels. * Region of Tournai occasionally. * Online, via webcam lessons
