LEARN TO LISTEN TO SEVERAL NOTES/VOICES AT ONCE WITH A HIGHLY TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED FRENCH CONSERVATORY PROFESSOR

All levels (from beginners to graduate students and professionals).
All ages.
When? Please drop me a line and we will try and find a time for you.

Listening to several voices at once certainly is one of the most rewarding skills a musician can have, or can acquire. And, no, this is not only for those who are born with this gift.
If you listen to music without being able to discriminate precisely the different layers of sound, you already know music is beautiful. I was like that a couple years ago. (Well, provided my gray hair, it must actually be many years ago).
I can surely say that being able to listen to several voices at once has brought me much joy! Music became absolutely wonderful!
When you can precisely hear the various voices, then you become aware of all the notes that are played, as if some nice new lights were shed on the music.
Not only can you enjoy the music more, but as you play you can now shape all the voices in the best possible way, or if you play a duo for instance, you can be sensitive to the way the other musician plays, and musically respond to his or her interpretation.
As a musician, that is a life-changing experience, a “must!”
That can be learned, slowly but surely, with method. Now, when I say slowly but surely, I talk about mastery. But if we are talking about being able to listen for the first time to an additional note at once, this is usually quite quick (I'd say one lesson, two weeks at most).
So, what can we work on?
Harmonic intervals, recognizing chords, discriminating notes within a 4 voice chord or aggregate (i.e. hearing the precise voicing of an isolated chord), learning to listen to counterpoint precisely, you name it. That should be based on where you are at, and what you would like to achieve. Anything is possible. Let's talk about it and get started!
Although perhaps you want to know this first:
My students often tell me I am very patient.
I'd rather say I am understanding and straightforward.
Actually, please know that I am also demanding: While there is no difficulty that I cannot understand, (and I found it absolutely thrilling to find a solution when the student seems stuck) yet I am not interested in approximation.
If after reading this, you are still interested, please drop me a line!
I am here to share my passion with you!
Sincerely,
YOUR Prof.
PS: I use fixed DO solfège (French way), but if you don't that's okay!

About Me

Music and teaching are my passion.
I am both a performer (organist) and a French Music Conservatory Professor.
I teach two subjects I love: Organ Performance and Formation Musicale (sort of a Musicianship or Ear Training course that would go up to a high graduate specialized level).
I have taught extensively, at all levels.
I pioneered live online musicianship lessons in France in 2011, and was since led to teach online in Europe, Asia, the U.S.A., and Madagascar.
I believe that the best qualification for a teaching individual is this: Being able to understand students and help them progress.
If you have a difficulty, nothing pleases me more than rising up to the challenge and helping you succeed.
My approach to teaching is not dogmatic, but rather pragmatic, empirical, and based on neurosciences when possible. I am not choosing methods or teaching tools because they are old or new, but I am choosing them (old and new) if they work for YOU.
So, I hope I will help fostering your progress soon!
Sincerely,
YOUR Prof.

Education

I have been trained in Europe and in the United States. I was awarded a Lurcy Scholarship (Fulbright-France partner) given annually to six French citizens for study in the United States.
A graduate of the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester with a Master of Music in organ performance and literature, I am also a graduate of the Nancy and Metz Conservatories, with degrees in musicianship (ear training), organ, harpsichord, and baroque chamber music performance.
I also won the First Prize in supérieur level at the 1996 "Concours International d'Orgue de Lorraine," president of the board of examiners: Marie-Claire Alain.

Experience / Qualifications

Concert artist since 1996.
Passionate teacher since 2000.
Music Professor since 2009.
Pioneer of live and real time online Musicianship lessons in France (since 2011).
Accredited with the equivalence of the French C.A.* in both Organ Performance and Musicianship by the French Ministère de l’intérieur, de l’outre-mer et des collectivités territoriales in March 2013.
* The C.A. (Certificat d’Aptitude) is the highest teaching certification for teaching music in French conservatories.
Published a Musicianship book in 2015 entitled "L2015 Leçons des premières années de solfège - formation musicale."
And yet, as previously stated, beyond experience and qualifications, I believe it is the ability and the joy to understand and effectively help the person you teach that makes someone a qualified instructor.
Music is a passion. Teaching is another. It is therefore my responsibility to share the first while satisfying the second. :) TEACHING... it's a beautiful human adventure where we learn, where we instill, and even where we advocate things. In doing so, we cannot escape our musical and human values. What does a very good teacher accomplish? What qualities (musical and human) are necessary to make a teacher a very good teacher? What is good progress? What are the steps to remember when training a student's ear? What are the steps not to be omitted in the transmission of rhythm? How can we really help students read notes well? How to develop virtuosity? How to make a correct diagnosis? What is the place of music theory, technical exercises, etc.? These are a lot of interesting questions... I will be very happy to help you and share the results of my research and my practice as a music training teacher, teacher. organ, and chamber music, whether on a specific point, or to develop an entire program. I talk about what I know and what works with the students. If you want something that works in practice, then I've got you covered! This is what I am passionate about and what I like to share. On the other hand, I do not specifically prepare for teaching competitions. I also do not wish to lock myself into lunar discussions which have no practical outlets... Looking forward to sharing with you, FM
Beautiful Rhythm is both precise & expressive. For the musician, it needs to be clear in both the mind & the body. Whether you are a beginner or a professional seeking help, I will be here for you. I teach the theory of rhythm and its practice. I can provide an all-encompassing progressive approach, or some training on a specific music piece (provided the piece really is at your level). Basic rhythms, or complex rhythm found in music from the Renaissance to contemporary classical music... anything can be addressed. Again, Rhythm needs to be clear in your mind and your body, therefore the lesson will be tailored around you and the score. My students often tell me I am very patient. I'd rather say I am understanding and straightforward. Actually, please know that I am also demanding: While there is no difficulty that I cannot understand, (and I found it thrilling to find a solution when the student seems stuck) yet I am not interested in approximation. If after reading this, you are still interested, please drop me a line! I am here to share my passion with you!

Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Richard
Private guitar lessons for every level: from basic chords to out of the box improvisation
Hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, and pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. See you soon! Richard PS: my specified hours are a guideline, if this does not suit you, you can certainly send us a message and we will try to arrange something :)

Matteo
Bass lessons for all levels: focus on the music you love
Hi! My name is Matteo, I'm a professional bassist from Brussels, currently based in Amsterdam. I perform and have performed with renowned musicians and bands from many different scenes and styles, bringing me to venues all over the world (USA, UK, Germany, Denmark, France, Romania, Portugal, Spain...). I have a deep passion for music ever since I started playing 16 years ago, and would like to share it with you! Bass is the best! And I want to help you uncover it's full potential. I believe the best way to learn music is to study what you love, and always work from a place of curiosity and passion. Therefore, we will always look together for ways of making the process the most enjoyable and tackle different topics through the music YOU love. The classes are tailored to each individual student: we find the best work flow for you, and adapt the lessons. If you need structure and a clear program, I can provide that; but if you prefer to keep it loose and see as we go, it's all good. All that matters if your continued motivation and progress. Among other things, we can focus on: -Basic technique on the instrument -Learning songs of your choice, with a method that will allow you to learn songs by yourself later on. -Learn about different styles: Pop, Rock, Funk, Soul, Metal, Jazz... -Develop your understanding of music through the instrument (scales, arpeggios...) -Creativity, and improvisation through the use of the material we have studied together -Ear training and music theory -Rhythm, all the way from basic to very advanced -Basic compositional techniques, or fun ways to start composing I have been teaching privately for the past 6 years, with very happy students. I can also teach online if it's better, I also have regular online students with whom we are making great progress. For the lesson, there is no need to bring an instrument: I can lend you one. Looking forward to meeting you!
