This class is for people of all ages, who would like to get a bit more aquainted with music, and playing the piano. It's mainly for beginners and intermediate students, who would like to broaden their knowledge of music, but not necessarily would like to go on a professional career.

Piano, Music Theory, Technical Skills, Reading Music
I will encourage you to get clear goals, support you in finding a good practice rhythm. We will decide together what pieces you can approach, depending on your tastes and your skills. I will teach you music theory and you might need to prepare a homework for each lesson. My goal is making you to be able to learn and play a piece by yourself in the shortest time possible. I gladly teach beginners and advanced, students preparing for auditioning to conservatoire are welcome as well. I teach on a grand piano (Ixelles) or I can come to your place (we need to discuss it). I am a concert pianist, I've got my first diploma in Romania. I studied also in Austria (Salzburg) and in Switzerland (Zürich). I play in different chamber music groups, I accompany and I teach piano.

Let's play cello! Great method of teaching! Cello is beautiful!
Hello everyone! Cello is one of the most beautiful instruments. Its sound is so close to the human voice. It sings, but it can be a virtuoso instrument as well! I'm a concert cellist, laureate of many international competitions. I'm based in Brussels, but I regularly perform in Germany, Poland, Belgium and France. I am qualified cellist having studied both at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Brussels and the Academy of Music in Cracow and Leopold Mozart Centrum in Augsburg. Currently, I am a member of a piano quintet with the residence at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Brussels. I've been studying under direction of prof. Jeroen Reuling, Julius Berger, Frans Helmerson, Alexander Rudin and many more. My performing experience ranges from solo concerts, chamber music projects and orchestras, both permanent and freelance. As a teacher I gained 4 years of experience including primary and university education. I finished 2-year internship at the Primary Music School in Cracow where I also obtained a teaching certificate. During my PhD studies I have been leading classes for students, helping them to master their skills. I really like to teach. I have very good practicing methods and I make cello playing easy and understandable even for a beginner. I'll be happy to meet you soon and help you to enter into fantastic, cello world:)

Clarinet and bass clarinet lessons in Brussels for everyone.
I am a professional clarinetist graduated with distinction at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels (Master Degree in Clarinet) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from the Music Conservatory of Valencia (Spain). Currently I am studying for a Master's Degree in Bass Clarinet, so we can combine both instruments in my lessons. I teach students of all ages and levels. 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. On top of playing, I can also offer lessons on harmony, form analysis and counterpoint that focus on understanding the structure of music. My lessons will already include many different aspects of the music being taught but there is the option of focusing the theoretical or the practical. i am looking forward to teaching you music!
