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.

Guitar lessons at your home or online through skype/zoom
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 ; - 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!

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade 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. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

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

Matt
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!

Goncalo
Guitar and Music Theory Lessons by a Qualified and Experienced Teacher
I specialize in teaching about Music and how to play the Guitar. In class, I always make the effort of understanding what are the goals and interests of all students, as well as their own skills. This way we can address the issues at hand more effectively and make sure the student never loses his/her interest and focus in music and his/her instrument. I believe that an honest and friendly relationship between teacher and student is essential for this exchange of ideas to happen more clearly and fluently, and so I do my best to make everyone feel comfortable enough to share their own thoughts freely. I offer good and personalized classes. This means that there will special care with your interest in music and guitar, all basic skills will be worked upon and strengthened, all specific requests and ideas will be addressed, both improvisation and interpretation can be developed and exploring potential, achieving goals and having fun are main priorities. Come and enjoy learning more about Music and Guitar!!

Ivan
MAO class with a hyper-creative professional named Costals
I published music under the names of Gelivan and Costals. An album and EP in 2017 as Gelivan, then singles in 2019. In 2020 I will release a project a month, minimum, with several videos. My mission is to live music by December 31, 2020 with a prosperous income. I want to be a major player in the world of music and help young people to progress, excel and live. I have an approach that does not dwell too much on the technique, I work rather on the optimal conditioning to become a prolific creator while having fun. Our meetings, associated with your motivation and your daily constancy, will lead you to develop your creativity and will bring you an unequaled satisfaction. It is important that you are strongly determined to make the most of my support. I suggest we see each other once a week, ideally the same day at the same time to make it easier. To create my music, I mainly use Ableton Live, and I highly recommend this same program to my students. I also create a lot of sketches on my iPhone with the Auxy app. Suggestions of habits to develop to become a prolific creator and create a music of your own: - devote at least 10 minutes every day to musical creation - collect sounds that you find interesting - you can record what surrounds you with your smartphone, sample movie dialogues, bits of other music etc. - create a reference playlist with your favorite songs (the most varied possible) - listen actively for 15 minutes of different music, be attentive to the different elements and make notes on what touches us, several listening by focusing on different elements.
