violin & viola individual lessons, chamber music lessons

I offer violin and viola lessons for students of all levels and ages.
Beginners are welcome!
I have developed my own teaching approach, based on years of practice with my Master teachers and my own research.
I focus on supporting and developing student’s individuality. I am open to meet specific expectations and needs.
I play the violin with my students to demonstrate and to inspire them. I also willingly perform together with pupils as well as accompany them during family performances. This makes playing even more enjoyable!

I offer group and chamber music lessons. That's the best way to learn how to communicate with others through the sounds of instruments. Students learn how to use music as a way to connect, follow the leader or to train mindful awareness. Playing together supports motivation to practice and improve skills.

I teach to improvise. I treat the instrument as a voice to be used freely.
I use improvisation as a language, wordless channel to create dialogue or express emotions. It builds student’s ability to play with trust.
It allows making music to become more personal.

Graduated with highest marks cum laude for the Bachelor degree in flute at the Conservatory of Florence (Italy) and with the same points at the Conservatory of Milano for the piccolo Master, I am now attending a Master degree in flute performance at the Zurich University of the Arts.

Singing lessons for all voice types (English, French, or Spanish)
I hold a BM in Secondary Choral Music Education from Brigham Young University, wherein I was awarded the Barlow Music Endowment. I have been a private voice instructor, choral director, and professional opera and choral singer for over 12 years, and have taught throughout the United States and France both privately and at specialist schools such as the Children's Choir of Paris. I have performed with premier vocal ensembles on tour throughout Europe, as well as with the 8-time Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus. I have over twelve years of experience conducting adult and children's choirs in various community and ecclesiastical capacities. I offer singing lessons (classical and contemporary) to all levels and ages as well as musicality, language, sight-reading, dictation, and performance skills. I am patient and nurturing. I understand how daunting vocal lessons can be, and will work at building your self-confidence as well as a good technique. As your vocal instructor, I will help you to set goals that develop your unique instrument and bring out your own personality. I believe that singing is an important form of communication, and will use my experience to help you to deliver a performance with integrity and meaning. Above all, it must always be a joyful experience.

Elena
Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

Group lessons Music on your lap. Grouplessons Music for toddlers and parents. For parents with a child from 0 to 4 years old.
Even at this young age, children enjoy singing, dancing and making music together with small rhythm instruments. In this way, you playfully stimulate the development of your (grand) child. And do not think that the children have to sit on their lap all the time! We also enjoy moving and dancing.
