Welcome to HeliStudio – where music lives

HeliStudio, een muzikale revolutie in de Spillemansstraat!

Wie de geschiedenis van de Baltische staten een beetje kent, heeft vast al wel eens van de Zingende Revolutie gehoord. Voor Estland, Letland en Litouwen is dit een voorbeeld  hoe muziek kracht en moed aan mensen kan geven. Heli Jakobson en Triin Tamm hebben deze bijzondere jaren beleefd als jonge kinderen en hebben hierdoor geleerd hoe muziek je kan helpen om je eigen weg te vinden in het leven

Flow

There are lots of special things to strive for by still keeping the distance these days... I sincerely hope that we will get back to the future with heartwarming house concerts and gatherings @ Helistudio. Listening to music played live from heart to heart is better than watching well edited video... So looking forward to the days when we can come together to celebrate the little wonders happening at Helistudio. Music brings people together!

Here’s a sweet memory of Mia giving her first concert performance 3 years ago.

The loveliest piano principessa’s @ Helistudio.
It’s never too late or too early to get in touch with music - all it takes is serious amount of dedication.

Peace of mind in playing the piano comes piece by piece.

Go for the music which requires the extra mile of effort from yourself. Challenges in piano lessons often turn into moments which eventually end with big smile and enthusiastic ‘aha!’ experience.

Feeling so much gratitude for all those special moments and the inspiring people i meet day in and out @helistudio_be !

I believe that beautiful piano playing starts by being yourself and loving the instrument.

So happy to have Frieda @friedaligtvoet @ Helistudio - such a bright soul full of love for music!

Every student brings different energy along and great surprises never end! The cool thing about people i meet in Helistudio is: they’re serious about learning the piano. So, about that - I have couple of shortcuts how to make playing with pedal a little bit easier: wear high heels!
So, here is Ingeborg and today she had wonderful excuse to bring her beautiful wedding heels to the pianolesson - ‘the pedal! 🙂

One of those hartwarming moments of gratitude for all these good vibes in my classroom!

Shadow poetry in Helistudio at night. Silence filled with gratitude and faith. I hope every student takes at least small drop of this energy with them from the piano lessons. There are always reasons to say yes to music. Remember that!

My favourite moment in the piano lesson is when i witness how students (re)move their attention from the head to their fingers - that’s where the magic happens! 🙂

The younger we are the more difficult it is to zoom in your focus just like that, the older we become the more confronting is the picture we then see... everything slows down, but our ability to feel the music becomes better. Children have this enthusiastic restlessness in their learning process. With time we’re more able to appreciate the experience of music weather we listen to it or play ourselves, it reaches us in much deeper levels.

I simply believe that people who play the piano are seriously brave and stay in touch with reality no matter what.

See you in your next piano lesson! 👋

This weekend sounds piano-pianissimo in Helistudio. First things first: we need to #flattenthecurve and #stayhomesavelives

Again.

I enjoy looking back to some memories of this autumn with Helistudio piano-tribe.

New school year brings always new beginnings - very glad to have met Ingeborg @ingeborgfrancken. She always brings extra colour to the pianolessons 🙂

“De Notenspotters” are the youngest singers and pianists to be in near future. They brighten up every wednesday.

I’m grateful that before the 2nd lockdown i had the chance to make music also outside Helistudio. Events organised by Geoffrey Van Hulle @truebygeoffreyvanhull are always magical experience.

And there was also Pianomarathon - chance to play on 2 grand piano’s with my students! Covid virus postpones lots of concert opportunities. Performances at pianomarathon made me see how students only grow closer to the piano, the essence is being able to play. It’s not about the applause. Posting this last pic to tell you that i really miss giving everyone a strong hug for their amazing efforts.

There’s still a long road to go by keeping distance from each other.

Let’s stay connected through the piano.

Rocco @rocco_sgrs is one of those students who comes to the lesson and literally leaves everything else behind. It’s just pure focus on music making.
Queen Kemble simply brightens up under his fingers.
We work on Solitude @jef_neve
Beautiful piece to listen to while getting our minds ready for the lockdown. Again.

Let’s do this 100% right this time. Let’s save each others lives by keeping distance. Let’s zero down our social life completely and invest more in meaningful phone calls, letters and messages.

Lets play piano to keep our mind fresh and heart open.

Out there is so much uncertainty, alarming numbers, overcrowded hospitals... In here we are looking for answers by playing, listening, analysing.

Piano lesson is very much much inside journey. It teaches us the value of patience and importance of taking small steps and getting it right from the beginning.

Kind of the same qualities we need trusting that these current somber times won’t last forever... By playing piano you do excellent soul-care for yourself.

Especially in current times, music is beautiful shortcut to more mindful living.

Since this autumn Quinten Alexander @quintenalexanderg is the best part of KU Leuven in Helistudio!

Rachmaninoff said: “music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music”.

Our lives have more colours with extra (piano) music in it, that’s why i’m always moved to see how my piano students make their next big steps in life and try to continuously make space for music in it.

Piano playing in Helistudio is not about perfection in notes, it’s more about who you are, what is your inner landscape. Music is vitamine M, remember! Play piano, because happiness is hidden in your finger tips! 😉

Sharing some saturday vibes @helistudio_be with you:

Young kids always find their ways how to get what they want - true or not? 👀

Today was Catherine’s lesson, but step by step her youngest daughter became curious and kind of took over her mom’s lesson. Girl with a mission and she made it! 🍀

I just love moments like this - piano and young children kind of works like a #magnet 😉

Last 6 months have taught me to look at things with more calm and what happens is that those few times i have left my home i always discover something mindblowingly beautiful. This is town hall of Borgerhout - i was waiting for my que to play livestream concert on sunday afternoon. I walked around in this beautiful hall and it felt asif the windows were talking back to me: The Art of Music - Muziekkunst, Love - Liefde and Open Heartedness - Openhartigheid. I believe these 3 qualities will get us through anything in life.

In the piano lessons i sometimes notice that especially adult students want to achieve perfection often too much too soon. They give too little space for themselves to try and maybe fail the first time(s)...

Need some extra inspiration for the baby steps in your piano practice? Know that your kids admire you for every single effort you make!

This pic here is a beautiful example.

@edwinvanmuylder thank you for letting me share your special piano score. 🙏 #inspired #babysteps #beginnersmind #gratitude #loveyoudad #soulful_moments #practicemakesprogress #bewhoyouare #dowhatyoulove #pianolessons #trusttheprocess #helistudio_be #borgerhout

I ordered this book in the beginning of the summer and today couldn’t have been any better timing to receive it. @aliciakeys is such a great talent in the world of music, but i ordered this book especially to find out how does she conquers challenges and difficult times in life. I see how youngsters, my students have big dreams, but not always equally much dedication...

As a music teacher i don’t just teach notes. Piano lesson becomes also the place where people are finding out ‘what’s my fire!’ Like ‘Girl on Fire’ by AK 🙂 It comes down to being seriously dedicated to what you want to achieve.

I’ve been inspired by Alicia Keys for many years, so cool to start this new school year together with this amazing Superwoman in my personal library. This book will be my soulfood for coming fall. I’m sure i’ll learn a lot what will also be useful to pass on to the youth in my piano class. The best life lessons are the ones of personal vulnerability.

One more day to get ready for new piano year @helistudio_be . Tuesday morning is the official start of the new school year. Great shortcut back to sharp piano fingers is: cut your (maybe slightly too long) holiday-nails and warm up with Hanon exercises in different keys!

Freedom in piano playing starts with short nails and strong fingertips!@rosaliecommers gives here a good example.

See you in the piano lesson - looking forward to another year filled with endless possibilities within 88 keys! 😉🎹👋 #gettingready #letsdothis #schoolstart #pianofingers #practicemakesprogress #dowhatyoulove #pianolessons #borgerhout #antwerpen #helistudio_be

I’m very proud of everyone who took the challenge to join and make live recording @boxabeat. I believe music brings people together, it reminds us about our well hidden super-powers and it gives us a different voice. Piano lessons @helistudio_be aren’t primarily about perfection in notes and virtuosity. My main message to the students is: playing an instrument is a life long inner dialogue with yourself about how to choose vulnerability over perfection. I’m very grateful and inspired by every single piano-journey @ Helistudio. 🙏💫 You’re welcome to listen to our student recital:

Conditions are never perfect, but sometimes things come down to following your gut feeling. It’s simply time, time to be even more brave and record some of my own piano pieces written during March and April during ‘the lockdown’. Actually these quiet weeks turned out to be the best quality time with my son and my piano and also all three of us together. I realised i don’t really miss people that much. My oxygen is music. I found out that i put the most vulnerable thoughts down in notes rather than sharing it in words.
Everything comes down to time - how much or how little time do we have in this life... To put it even more straight forward: it’s about how do we spend the number of heart beats that are given to us. How do we rise up after each fall, how do we celebrate the moments of growth, what does it take to feel at home in your own heart without any applause from the outside. These are some of the thoughts behind my Piano Diary C-19.
Walk With MI / Prelude / Silent Dream / Nocturne c-19 / The Exit

Sometimes we all are feeling a bit frustrated about our piano practice - you think you do your best and yet it doesn’t sound quite like it. The secret is: don’t do your best, simply be the best version of yourself when you practice - mistakes might still come, nothing is perfect, but when you switch from doing into being you dive into pure joy of playing the piano. I’m getting ready to record few of my own works in few days - in this piece here my right hand needs a pinky with some extra super-powers. Sometimes i get carried away in the emotion and lose the focus on those jumps in the right hand and i hit the wrong top notes... i could get mad and repeat it 100 times, but i choose to remind myself that the core of everything is i love to play the piano. In short: simply be your own kind of beautiful and stick to your daily practice. #practicemakesprogress #vulnerabilityisstrength #workinprogress #beyourownkindofbeautiful #gettingready #helistudio_be #borgerhout #happyatspilleman ...

Here’s a small glimpse inside a pianolesson @helistudio_be with Lux @luxashley_ She plays “Charlotte’s Daydream” by @pieterdegraafmusic Our online pianolessons today are more about how to keep your concentration sharp during your piano practice at home. I remind you of some ‘old truths’ from our earlier live-lessons. So even when you can almost sightread your pieces, always work it through also with both hands apart! What’s the difference? Well, sightreading is kind of like ordering a quick take away meal and the other way is staying at home and cooking yourself - cutting your vegetables piece by piece and enjoying every minute of it. Your sound gets better when you first give every note its own time and space, so don’t forget to practice with both hands apart and to enjoy it! 🎵🎹👋 #pianolessons #proudofmystudents #caringfromadistance #practicemakesprogress #musicbringspeopletogether #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

New reality @helistudio_be : piano lessons via iPhone screen instead of face to face. This doesn’t feel natural way of teaching for me, but i’m seriously impressed and very glad to see all of you practicing on and on with so much positivity and dedication! This is so heartwarming! Bravo to you, dear Helistudio pianists out there! 👏👏👏❤️ PS: i’m always a FaceTime or Whatsapp away when need me 🎹! 👋 #newwaysofworking #lockdownchallenge #musicbreaksboundaries #pianolessons #hearttoheart #proudofmystudents #helistudio_be #borgerhout #musicbringspeopletogether ...

Tip @helistudio_be in the times of lockdown and for 2nd week of home schooling our kids: music is vitamin M, so put creativity above all else - do the music lesson first! 🎹🎵🥁🎸🎻🎺🎤 #flattenthecurve #musiclesson #dowhatmakesyouhappy #creativity #staypositive💯 #helistudio_be #borgerhout #happyatspilleman ...

My vision of homeschooling these days: creativity first! Is the mantra in our house. Playing piano helps me to keep calm and grounded, before and after my practice my son loves to sport in my ‘office’. This is how we combine these two worlds @helistudio_be ! If you can do try this at your place as well ! 😉🎹🏃‍♂️👌#flattenthecurve #stayhome #followyourpassion #sport #becreativeeveryday #helistudio_be #borgerhout #happyatspilleman ...

Time to celebrate the young pianists @helistudio_be ! I miss our weekly lessons, but i’m so touched to see how proactive everyone is on their own! Here’s Lux @luxashley_ playing Charlotte’s Daydream by @pieterdegraafmusic In times like today music is such a beautiful bridge between all of us. Keep up your good practice! 👏🎹❤️ #proudofmystudents #musicbringspeopletogether #pianoteacherlife #practicemakesprogress #bethechangeyouwanttosee #flattenthecurve #stayhome #stayhealthy #borgerhout #helistudio_be ...

Dear Helistudio Family, it’s time to look in the mirror and do the only right thing: stay at home.
No more piano lessons for coming week(s). In the meantime i’m still available to you via whatsapp. Feel free to contact me with all your piano revelations and maybe also some frustrations 😉
Music is vitamin M - we see such heartwarming examples of it now happening in Italy. My wish for you is: in the middle of this chaos and fear, please fill the walls of your home with music, make a video of your favourite piano piece and share it with your grand parents you can’t visit at the moment, sing at home with your children, sing to your children, let your piano practice add more spark to every single day.
With music we can win fear.
Stay tuned for more info about coming weeks. I hope to see you back at Spilleman as soon as possible, but first things first: you must take very good care of yourself now and stay at home! Here’s Prologue by Pieter de Graaf @pieterdegraafmusic a piece filled with certain sadness, but for me personally it gives also lots of inner peace and harmony.
Take the best care of yourself, this is the best way to help each other. #stayathome #flattenthecurve #corona #dobetter #washyourhands #playpiano #staystrong #musicbringspeopletogether #hearttoheart

Some piano-lessons turn out to be extra loud and very energetic. Here’s a glimpse of Monday’s piano battle with Mattias. It’s still work in progress. Norwegian Dances by Edvard Grieg are great pieces to test your limits 😉#energyiseverything #workinprogress #practicemakesprogress #musicbringspeopletogether #edvardgrieg #proudofmystudents #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Today is big piano tuning day @ Helistudio. Maarten Proost is here to make some magic, because Queen Kemble is slightly out of tune! Happens to all of us sometimes, right? 😉🎹#outoftune #pianotuning #kemblepiano #takecareofyourpiano #makeitright #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Time to look back at this week: monday is Rocco Day @rocco_sgrs in Helistudio. He always comes to the lesson with very open mind and eagerness to learn. Pure joy for any piano teacher! Right now Rocco is working on Blues by @jef_neve I believe music gives us kind of inner space where we can go to reload or to burst out - both extremes are possible and sound good! So simply be you and do you for you! 🎹#practicemakesprogress #beyoudoyouforyou #pianolessons #yesyoucan #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Every now and then a great song comes along and it’s simply nice to look into it. This is Estonian entry for Eurovision: What Love Is by @ukusuviste. I really love the chorus part, so countless amount of 12 points from Antwerp to you, Uku Suviste! #whatloveis #ukusuviste #eurovision2020 #12points #myfavorite #happyatspilleman ...

Groot en goed nieuws: la pianista Mia @mia.et.moi kan een octaaf spelen - 8j en het is gebeurd! Ze kan ook best goed met gekruiste handen spelen, begin maar af te tellen naar onze volgende leerlingenconcert! #bignews #yesshecan #happykid #pianofingers #pianolessons #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Saturday is Concerto-time @helistudio_be ! In the program we have this song about very strict parents 🤓 Sometimes it’s tricky to turn up the volume of those little voices, but when it comes to this song they’re loud enough! #funtimes #sing #saywhatyoufeel #concertcomingup #musicbringspeopletogether #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Yesterday i was completely blown away already in the first lesson. Nathalie is this busy-bee mom who started piano lessons 2 years ago. It was in her bucket list ‘last deadline: start to play piano at 40’. She did and few months later she sold her car and bought an upright piano instead. So far this is the coolest switch i’ve ever witnessed in my piano class! Nathalie never misses her 2 weekly pianolesson no matter what life throws at her. Very, very strong person. And so yesterday she came to the lesson, showed me her first successes with her new piece and after playing it through she said: you know what, every time i play the piano, no matter how it goes, i feel as if i return back to me. Just me, the part i otherwise seem to lose.
What a powerful insight!
Yes indeed, learning an instrument is the best me-time there is. However, the road to this happy-place is quite complex: you have to be very patient and determined, humble and honest, always keep an open-mind about every succes and also every failure. Learning piano is like climbing mountains in your own soul.
Nathalie, thank you for this magical monday morning! #soulful_moments #inspired #proudofmystudents #backtome #powerfulthoughts #pianolessons #helistudio_be #borgerhout #happyatspilleman

Norwegian music holds a very special place in the repertory at Helistudio. Here’s Timo @timovandeput_ with his first steps in Norwegian Dance by Edward Grieg. In few weeks you’ll hear his speedy fingers in the second part of the piece!I believe in festina lente - make haste slowly! #festinalente #grieg #practicemakesprogress #musicbringspeopletogether #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Here’s beginning of something new - inspired by Chopin (study in c-minor), a great concert i heard by Pieter De Graaf @pieterdegraafmusic and the fact that my 7y old son says ‘mom, this is cool!’ - alrighty then, a new piece coming up in c-minor with many, many notes 😉! #newbeginnings #inspired #thisisme #dowhatyoulove #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Sunday evening with Eleonore @symforosa and Preludes by Scriabin - hard work for fingers and such a treat to listen to. I’m very proud of the adult students @ Helistudio - these are the people who theoretically don’t have much time to practice, but they take the time and therefore they also make great music. #proudofmystudents #maketimeforwhatmatters #scriabin #pianolessons #soulful_moments #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...

Here’s an example of what i mean when i use the word Superwoman. I believe that Mary Poppins like superpowers are hidden in every mom and the one’s who come to Helistudio @helistudio_be they play piano on top of everything! Beautiful and inspiring lesson with Rosie. #inspiring #momsarethebest #soulful_moments #perfectmatch #helistudio_be #borgerhout ...
