HeliStudio, een muzikalerevolutie 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
Who dares to say that playing piano is easy? It’s not! Before it becomes fun, we have to put in serious amount of concentration, dedication, patience and the most important ingredient: whatever crazy sounds happen when you’re working on a new piece, stay positive and believe in yourself!
Piano lesson is the best place to realise that mistakes are always part of the road to something beautiful!
Here’s Miss Mia @mia.et.moi these days her middle name is Mozardina 🙂 I just love the energy how she conquers this piece and goes on when things feel tricky. It’s a work in progress filled with lots of joy! 💫
My Estonian Inspiration Calendar tells me something interesting today:
All troubles people have come from the fact that they aren’t able to sit alone in silence in their room.
Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)
Hmmm... the piano teacher in me objects! I notice that people who play piano don’t have any problem to be alone and enjoy the silence. They do it regularly and fill the silence with music 😉
Have a great day! 👋
Piano lessons with children - on one side ‘easy peazy’ and on the other side challenging. Children sincerely like to discover the piano, but they don’t know yet why they really like it... so there’s some motivation to work with, but a lot of it is my work to keep this little flame going. Piano seems and feels fun during first 3 lessons or so and then things get serious. Only practice makes progress every single day.
La Pianista Lou here has come through this tunnel of learning the basics of notes. I see her smile more and more and now she’s the one who takes the lead and asks: can we play it once more?
A happy day. Lots of gratitude. Warm feeling of sisterhood because of the piano and life in general. There are only Super Women in my piano class and sometimes they lift me up in most unexpected ways. I may know a lot about the piano, but i didn’t know that the one thing i still missed in my life was a huge box of choconuts! @sarah_horsten 🙏 ❤️
Weergoden waren niet mee met onze plannen van Kunstroute te houden vandaag @de.kunstfabriek, maar het was wel perfecte moment voor Singing In The Rain! Always unstoppable and positive - zo zijn mijn collega’s @alexandra.franck en @suzukischoolmechelen.
After 7 months of silence we had a chance to play for live audience again. The weather didn’t matter - the idea that we could share live music with an audience was far above anything else this time. Corona virus has brought so much stillness and distance between us, but music is always a meeting point.
This was Pianomarathon’21 - seeing and hearing each other again note by note. More thoughtful than ever before.
Thank you for the music. I’m always so moved how every student owns their moment on stage.
My new solo piano piece “43” 🎙link in bio- is celebrating another year to grow and learn. Lately i feel that the bigger meaning of Life is daily exercise in gratitude - sometimes it’s easy, other times it takes years to figure out stuff and also then, nothing but gratitude is what remains.
I hope this music adds few drops of peace and positivity to your day.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to it!

Special thanks Patrick Peeters @boxabeat for the recording.
For Helistudio pianists the countdown to Pianomarathon’21 @bib_permeke has started.
Here is Francesca @francesca_deproost and Gabriel’s Oboe by Ennio Morricone.
Another much more silent year is passing by at Helistudio... ‘Safety First!’, so yes - we have organised video concerts, but nothing can replace the experience of live performances from eye to eye and heart to heart. Pianomarathon is our only live public concert this school year. Sad fact to face, but i believe things can only get better towards next school year!
15/5 will be a beautiful Piano Day @ De Coninckplein! Helistudio pianists start at 14:00! 👋🎹☀️...
