Piano Lessons for Levels Beginner-Advanced, Classical and Contemporary styles

I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I am currently pursuing my third degree (Postgraduate Concertsoloist) at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, and have obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions.

About Me

Music is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others—particularly my students! I teach a variety of styles, although my own training is classical. Generally, I choose music that fits the student’s level and personality—every student is very different! With that in mind, I emphasize good technique and skills, so that the playing experience can be with a certain amount of ease and enjoyment. I also love to learn new pieces (modern and Classical) from my students themselves, so music requests from my students are encouraged :)

Bachelor of Music: Piano Performance (Graduating Summa Cum Laude) at Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, TX, USA

Master of Music: Piano Performance at University if Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Postgraduate Concertsoloist Diploma: Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp (Belgium)

Lydia is a very skilled piano player and a great teacher. She listens to your personal preferences (music-wise and what you'd like to learn skill-wise), so you will be playing pieces you like. At the same time she keeps the lessons well-balanced and varied with technical detail, theory and musicality. Highly recommend!

Beatriz
Music and cello lessons in Antwerp - All levels and all ages.
Hello! My name is Beatriz. I am a Spanish cellist and I have just finished my Master Studies at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. Would you like to learn to play the cello? Do you want to improve your technique? Do you love music and you want to enjoy it as an amateur? It's time to prepare for auditions?. The lessons are adapted depending on your level and your goals. I love teaching and I have 10 years of experience teaching children and adults. Feel free to ask for more info. Let's do some music together!

Imre
Brass Instruments (Tuba, Euphonium, Trombone, French Horn, Trumpet) and other (flute, recorder, piano)
Have you ever been interested in studying music or even a brass instrument? I am a 22 year old student from Estonia and I am studying at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. I am offering lessons for playing the tuba, euphonium, trombone, french horn and the trumpet. Also offering lessons for music theory and playing the flute or the piano. I would be happy to teach people in all ages and levels. If you, or your friend or your child would be interested in those lessons.

Stefan
Piano lessons for acquiring and/or improving piano skills
In my class, I teach piano in a way that allows you to make progress on your own. "Don't give a man a fish, instead teach him how to fish," is the idea here. My methods include, besides basics, approaches to expressing your own musicality, stable memorization, practice habits and efficiency, technical ease, focus exercises, body awareness, and stage fright. Hence, I am best suited for intermediate and advanced students that have the desire to either study piano on a collegiate level or make significant improvements for themselves. I would like to add at this point that I have a special affinity for the concert etudes by Frédéric Chopin. However, I am perfectly happy to start with students from the very beginning as well and regardless, I will adjust to my student's needs upon mutual agreement. My free times that I listed as available are a rough estimate, lesson times are normally negotiable.

Robrecht
Method of Independence for The Modern Marimaplayer
I want to make the marimba student aware of the different sounds that a marimba can produce, by using those sounds I want to improve his technique and teach him to phrasing. All this from relaxation, because many percussionists are not aware of how much tension there is in their body when they play, and in which places. We also look at the different techniques that are possible on the marimba and we look for which one suits you best. I teach both beginners and advanced students.

Alejandro López
Flute, Music theory and Recorder lessons for all levels and ages
Hey there! This is Alejandro, but everyone calls me Alex. Like you, one ramdon day I got this little tube in my hands (17 years ago already!!!), and it has been accompanying me since then, playing, studying, and teaching all around Europe. Now I am based in Antwerp, giving live and online lessons. Does not matter your level, I have experience with: -Teaching flute and music theory for children's(7-12) -Preparing young flutist for conservatory's entrance exams -Teaching music theory for adults -Guiding amateur flute players in order to have fun with the instrument. So if you are interested in being one of the class, just contact me and we will have the first lesson, where you will show me your goals with the instrument, and I will design the way of working together to make them happen! Hope to see you soon, but if not, please keep making music!

Simone
Classical Piano Lessons with Progress and Fun Guaranteed
Dear Pianoteacher searchers :) If I describe my lessons I would say they are playful. The students play a lot, there is not so much talking about technique. Only when a difficulty comes up, then we explore together where the problem starts and how to solve it. I want the student to be able to study after the lesson without my help so one day he or she can take a score and play. Thats why I like to give homework so that the lessons progress. That being said, my lessons are also playful, because I put no pressure when the student couldn't practice. The most important for me is that the lesson is a space that gets you closer to music and that makes exploration possible. I studied 4 years Piano in Germany and now I study Piano in Antwerp so I have many years and teachers as expierence which can help us explore in the lesson how you can understand and listen to music and how you can practice, so you can do it yourself. If you are interested in my approach write me a message and I will get back to you. I wish you all the best for your music interest! Simone

Alana
Beginner & Intermediate Violin Lessons (Taught in English)
I have experience teaching violin to beginner and intermediate students for over 15 years in California, United States. I recently relocated to Antwerp and look forward to meeting new students who are interested in learning more about the violin. A bit about myself - I began playing the violin at age 9. I am a classically trained violinist and have performed with orchestras, chamber groups, rock bands, and jazz groups. I have performed in venues including Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House. Though I never pursued violin performance as a university major, I continue to maintain my skill, teach, and perform regularly. I have a passion for music history, and would love to talk about it with the student if they are interested. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Looking forward to meeting you!
