About Me

*NEW TO APPRENTUS, SEE PHOTOS FOR PREVIOUS REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS*

I started playing piano at the age of 5, guitar at the age of 9 and drums at the age of 11. I have been teaching since I was 15. Last year I decided to make it my primary focus and am looking to develop my client base further.

All ages, abilities and styles are catered for and I am happy to offer advice and guidance on anything from guitar string choice to complex music theory. I also have recording and production facility if you require additional learning aids, such as backing tracks.

As I always say, the best and most satisfying thing for accomplished musicians to be able to do is to “play it forward” to those in the earlier stages of their own musical journey.

Organ Lessons - Organ lessons - lezioni di organo.
Student in Master of organ at the High School of Music in Geneva gives course organ (or piano or solfège or harmony). The instrument used is a mechanical organ in a church in Geneva. I also teach in Milan at a musical association for 2 years and I have a lot of experience with children and adults. Organ lessons: possibility to work the repertoire of all times but also to work piano, harmony and counterpoint and basic forms of improvisation. It is also possible to work the organ as an instrument in the service of the liturgy. I have a master's degree in Italian literature and my classes are open to general musical culture and history of music but also to the history of literature and art history.

Katie
Piano or Theory Teacher for Beginners or Professionals
I am a student studying classical piano at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I graduated from the Yehudi Menuhin School in England. I can help students with their piano exams, theory exams. I also have experience teaching beginner students. My goal is to inspire people with music so that they find joy in playing an instrument and in the lessons. I also aim to make every student coming out of the lesson to feel motivated to practice and want to do their best.

Sara
A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons
Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

Danny
GUITAR AND / OR ZANGLES - Antwerp and surroundings - private
GUITAR and ZANGLES: For beginners and advanced, young and old. Everyone receives a personal lesson plan and objectives. You don't have to know theory. The lessons take place in a pleasant demo room. At your own pace I will get to know you the guitar and its possibilities so that you can quickly play your favorite songs. If you come to sing, I will lift you to unprecedented heights through my knowledge and years of experience. I like to coach motivated people who can make time to develop musically. I expect commitment and then it can go quickly. Several students of mine are now enjoying some success in the music bizz (not that this should be everyone's goal). Partly because of their perseverance but also because of the training they received. I am a music coach and guide you in a pleasant, successful way through an educational period. If you want more details or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Musical greetings, Danny

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time.

Online classical guitar lessons, live video calls or unlimited back-and-forth
Do you have a guitar that feels lonely in your home ? Would like to be able to play some beautiful guitar music? If so, my goal is to give you everything you need to become an autonomous musician : technical skills, understanding of music theory, sight-reading (nothing to be afraid of!), and development of your very own musical sensibility - all while enjoying yourself. I'm a diplomed classical guitar teacher in France, finished a Performance Master in Basel Musik Akademie and am now pursuing a Music Pedagogy Master. My greatest joys are to perform and to teach, and generally speaking sharing my love for my instrument. I have 8 years experience in teaching and always strive to find better strategies and most adapted methods for every pupil that I meet, from 6 to 70+ years old. ===NEW ONLINE FORMULA=== With the lockdown situation, I now offer two different possibilites : - live video lessons, charged at the hour like an usual face-to-face lesson, at the frequency you choose ; - unlimited back-and-forth formula : for the price of one hour/week, you send me as many videos and questions that you like; I answer under 24 hours with either text, scores and PDF material, video or audio recording, with the feedback and assignments you need, plus one check-in live 30 minutes call every two weeks, if you wish to. That's the good option if you like working by yourself on your own time, don't want to add appointments in your week, and want to get a lot of value. If you're interested in starting online classical guitar lessons with me, please send me a message so we can discuss which option would fit you best! I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Apprendre à jouer à la guitare acoustique/électrique
Guitar lessons are always useful for all levels of guitar playing. the course content will depend on the level of the student and is entirely open to any preferences in songs or techniques the student wishes to learn. My course is designed in such a way that it focuses on the student's creativity with the guitar and works towards fine tuning what will eventually become the student's original song or composition. I encourage my students to tap into their creativity, since in my experience, I have found that this is where the pleasure and beauty of music tends to surface, when there are the least amount of boundaries possible. All styles of music are welcome!

Guitar lessons in Brussels. Playing guitar is not only fun, but it's also good for you. Put down that game controller for an hour a day, because playing guitar is a great way to exercise your brain. Did you know that studies show that playing a musical instrument both improves memory and activates creative thinking in the player's brain? Amplification and connection cables provided during lessons at the teacher's home. Students only need to bring their guitar and a desire to learn.
