Elvis is a great teacher! His musical expertise goes beyond just playing the violin. His approach and love for music are inspiring. I've already learned a lot from him and, most importantly, I'm having fun.
Classes with Elvis have been so worthwhile! Elvis has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable, and always keeping it light and fun. I would highly recommend it if you want to have fun while learning Violin.

Violin lessons in Leuven.For children, adults, for everyone! Nobody said it would be an easy instrument but I will try to teach you in the m

Elisavet
Inspiring violin lessons - all levels and ages welcome!
I am an enthusiastic professional violinist and teacher. I can teach you classical violin, folk songs from Greece and Middle East, as well as your favourite pop tunes and tunes of almost any other music genre! Being well classically trained, I can help you build a solid violin technique and prepare you for giving your best during important music occasions such as exams, auditions, concerts etc. Also, being member of pop - oriental bands with concerts around Belgium, France and Greece, having played with several classical and contemporary music ensembles and orchestras, as well as coming from a family of musicians, my lessons are ideal for students who want to learn to be at ease when they eventually make music with others. :) All pieces can be taught either by ear, music scores or BOTH!! Teaching you basic and/or more advanced music theory to facilitate your violin learning if you don't know yet how to read and write music, can be easily done! My personal experience with music psychology and body movement techniques for musicians have enriched my knowledge and teaching skills. Extra attention is given during the lessons to not only help you build a strong and steadfast technique and develop your music ear, but also to acquire a confident presence and attitude for when you play for others! All is being done with gentle care towards your body's physiology and feelings, and consideration of your learning style. :)) Finally, I'm at your disposal in between the lessons, answering to any questions you might have and offering you support and guidance with your new insights! :D

Andreea
Violin and music lessons for children and adults, for all levels
My passion is teaching violin to children and adults. I have been playing violin for 17 years and I am very happy each time I can teach everything I have learned. My goal is to make people fall in love with this instrument and to help them easily progress and feel comfortable playing diverse repertoire. I teach for absolute beginners, beginners and advanced level, music theory being included if necessary. The focus of the class is understanding how playing the violin works, learning new music scores, having a great time and developing your artistic skills after each lesson. My experience with teaching was built during my studying years, when performing as a professional musician and working as a private teacher for children and adults. Obtaining a violin performer degree and a teaching degree at National University of Music Bucharest, together with studying abroad, completed and improved my teaching experience as well.

"Happiness is an art to be practiced, like the violin" John Lubbock
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, Currently a student in psychomotor skills, I have been playing the violin since I was 5 years old, today I really want to humbly transmit what I know !! :) It will be a question here of co-constructing the course with my student. These courses will be developed around: -bodies warm-ups - learning music theory (underlined by singing, body percussions, etc ...) -practice of the violin, of course, with or without sheet music support (ear work) -a time for self-expression with improvisation The important thing here is to take pleasure in living the music so I hope that these proposals make you want !! Beautiful day :) Lucile C.

Electric and acoustic guitar techniques for begginers and for experts! Learn how to do solos and other techniques!
Now you have the oportunity to learn everything that you want about the techniques for the electric and acoustic guitars! For all the styles!! I worked as professional musician for many bands in Spain, I have played in many places and pubs, I have done many concerts and I also have experience in the studios, creating and recording because I worked for a Spanish discography during 3 years. I do lessons for all levels, and I can teach you all kinds of techniques and styles for the electric guitar in order to improve (scales, the greek modes yo improvise and make solos, tapping, swip picking, legatos...) and also for the acoustic guitar (air tap, tapping, percusive guitar, use different and original tunings to get new and rich sounds). I think that there are a lot of people that play guitar very good, so I allways try to find something new to make me different to others, and that is what I want to show you. I can make the lessons in English, French, Spanish and Catalan.

Electric Guitar, Improvisation, finger style, backtracking
I have been playing electric guitar for 16 years and I was a member of several rock bands before. In my courses, I mostly focus on improvisation over bluesy, jazzy or simple rock chords. For those beginners, I start with some basics until we reach the required level to improvise. By taking the classes, you will learn how to accompany other instruments and enjoy together with other musicians.
