Eamonn
Guitar and singing lessons in Brussels with a professional singer-songwriter/producer (En/Fr)
Trained at the Music Academy International, I propose private lessons of Guitar, Singing, and/or Audio Production centered on amplified music (funk, soul, jazz, rock, blues, etc.) and adapted to the requests of each student. My classes are open to all, children and adults, beginners or advanced. I attach great importance to the understanding of the technical tools implemented in the interpretation of the pieces, a typical lesson is therefore divided between technical work with clear explanations and actual practice on songs to play or sing. If the student is interested, I also teach the more theoretical aspects of music, such as harmony (scales, chords, modes, improvisation), music theory, rhythm, ear training, and deciphering. I also offer coaching sessions. These are non-regular sessions to target work on specific aspects of the requested repertoire. Each lesson is accompanied by work material (paper or audio) to practice at home. For guitar lessons, an instrument can be made available, for singing lessons, I accompany the student on the piano or the guitar (it is also possible to use backing tracks when the key and tempo are right ) and for audio production, I can provide the software required to start on any operating system (Win, Mac, and Linux) (I don't work with pirated software). Classes are given in my studio in Etterbeek, 5-minute walk from La Chasse. I also teach group lessons for singing, do not hesitate to contact me for more information. Flexible schedule (daytime or evening).

Théo
Dj mix course + music production on Ableton Live + understanding of the musical environment
Hello, My name is Théo, Dj for 10 years, I have performed in various establishments (clubs, bars, restaurant in a ski resort, dj set at the Lake Parade in Geneva and my biggest experience was at the Palais des Sports of Grenoble in 2016 in front of a room filled with more than 5000 revelers playing before big names such as R3hab) I first started to train myself as an autodidact but I quickly realized the limit of progression because even by exchanging regularly with Djs the secrets are not revealed easily and it is legitimate. So I decided to train myself on musical composition in Paris at the 40th Roaring with the Ableton software and at the SAE Institute in Amsterdam to have more original and personal sets, thanks to mashups for example. Then at the UCPA in Lyon for the pure mixing technique. It is all this experience that I wish to share today. I established a training over 3 months at the rate of 1 lesson per week + training at home of course. If you start from 0 in 3 months with an investment, you will be independent! The courses offered range from the beginner stage with the 3-month program to advanced DJ with your specific requests. I would know how to guide you to make you progress as much on the technique of DJ mixing, as on the musical production or on the medium of the music.

Kéwork
Online piano lesson, songwriting lesson and music production lesson
Would you like piano, production or songwriting lessons from an artist established in the music industry? That's possible with me, Kéwork. As an artist, keyboardist, singer, songwriter and producer, I know how to introduce or guide you further in your goals. Want to learn to play the piano but have never touched a key? Or are you looking for further growth in your (future) career in music? With my 20+ years of experience, I have grown from piano student to Conservatory graduate and currently work as a songwriter and producer for a music publishing company, writing music for various artists. In the piano lessons we can focus on learning to read and play sheet music and chord progressions, but improvisation is also taught. In addition, it is possible to learn to play (pop) music without reading sheet music. During songwriting lessons we focus on writing and creating original lyrics, song structures and rhyme schemes, with the aim of releasing your songs! Do you prefer tinkering with music? Then the production classes are for you! During these lessons you will learn to produce your own songs by recording music, designing your own sound (sound design), editing the audio by means of audio programs, mixing and mastering. All classes can be followed both online and in my studio in Almere Poort, according to the RIVM guidelines. Are you interested or do you have any questions? You can reach me by calling or sending a message. Kework
