    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    I am a teacher of singing and piano. I have been making 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) to become, to improve their talent on both sides, to learn to be accompanied. The motto that characterizes my courses 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, demos, 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!

    Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
    Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. Having graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music and Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude), I am currently pursuing my postgraduate study in singing at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, under the tutelage of Valerie Guillorit. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have performed as soloist at a lot of occasions in Hong Kong and Europe, and the repertoire includes opera, Lied, oratorio and new music. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions in their ABRSM exams and some of them had won prizes in competitions. However, I do not teach them for distinctions and prizes. No matter what they get on their music journey, I love them with all my heart and I always believe that encouragement is the key. For beginners, I focus a lot on basic techniques. During the lessons, I also like to share my knowledge about history and theory, which are important building blocks to shaping a musician. For advanced learners, I would teach more about musicality and music presentation along with basic techniques. Of course, the actual teaching method depends on the personality and ability of student too. I grow up in a top English school in Hong Kong, so I can communicate in English fluently. I am confident that I will give my students the best learning experience. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a trial lesson:)

    Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
    I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

    Saxophone, music theory and improvisation - all levels
    This course is for anyone that's interested to play the saxophone at any level, from the very beginners to students interested in more advanced topics such as improvisation, both in unconventional ways or more founded on the tradition of Jazz. The course will be adapted to the pupils goals and level, with a demanding but not overpowering approach. The frequency can also be optimized to the pupil's necessities: weekly, bi-weekly or monthly (not less). I believe that the main goal of a mentor should ultimately to make the pupil become his own teacher and establish an empatic two-way learning process.

    PROFESSIONAL GUITARIST OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN TEACHING - ONLINE GUITAR COURSES (SKYPE + TRACKS AND EXERCISES PERSONNALI
    The Skype online guitar lessons allow you to make a personalized learning in any place that the student thinks comfortable. Thanks to my experience as a teacher, I discovered that online courses are a good option for students of all levels, offering the possibility to be personally followed on Skype plus digital sheets written each course and access to tracks recorded especially for the practice of all day. Method For more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I developed several methods and exercises for teaching guitar and music (composition, improvisation, harmony, etc.) for students of all levels. Over time, I realized that the most important thing is to have the ability to adapt to each student. I think the main thing is that students get to find the motivation to practice regularly with pleasure to progress in this instrument. The most common is the use of songs that the student chooses and take advantage of this to work on more general concepts of music and guitar that are important to gain a solid foundation and without bad habits. For more advanced students learning is determined together to set a personal goal.
