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.

Muziek maakt je kwetsbaar en tegelijkertijd ook krachtig. Geen wonder dus dat de wereld van HeliStudio doordrongen is van dit besef.

HeliStudio is een plek waar het beste van Estland gedeeld wordt, vooral op vlak van muziek.

In de lessen van Heli staat pianospelen gelijk met spreken met je vingers. Zo leer je jouw mening en gevoelens vertolken in muziek. In de lessen met de kleutersdraait het vooralrond het ontdekken van een eigen klank. Verder zijn zowel schoolkinderen als volwassenen welkom om hun pianoverhaal waar te maken.

Triin brengt dit allemaal in beeld. Ze ontwerpt inspirerende concertposters en maakt foto’s tijdens de evenementen van HeliStudio. Als de drukke dagen in HeliStudio voorbij zijn, speelt ze cello en werkt ze als bedrijfsadviseur.

Heli Jakobson is pianiste. Triin Tamm is grafische ontwerper.

Ze komen allebei uit Estland, maar ze hebben elkaar leren kennen in Antwerpen (dankzij Triin haar schoonmoeder en Gazet Van Antwerpen), waar Triin terechtkwam via haar werk in Zuid-Afrika en Heli na haar universiteitsjaren in Noorwegen.

Triin en Heli zijn trotse mama’s. Met hun kids spreken ze Ests.

In dagelijks leven spreken ze in Nederlands, maar als er iets te vieren is, zeggen ze wel ‘terviseks!’ – dat betekent gezondheid in Ests.

Neem een kijk in HeliStudio wereld.

We hopen dat je vindt wat je zoekt!

Muzikale groeten,

Heli & Triin

This pic says it all: we miss Helistudio concerts.
Playing for full concert hall and hearing the applause you all deserve so, so much.

This weekend and coming week it’s hopefully the last time for ‘bubble concerts’.
Bring your closest fans to the lesson! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

And then simply ⏩ to the next school year especially to 11/12/21 then it’ll be time for Helistudio Student Recital @ De Theatergarage!
🎹🎶🙏

Elke has started @helistudio_be just few weeks ago. She made a switch from ‘simply piano app’ to a ‘simply live’ piano teacher 🙂

Our lesson today was one big laughter - we discovered some funny hacks how to find space, place and peace in using the pedal. And the oldest truth: festina lente! Hurry slowly - very true also in learning the piano.

Beautiful extra is that sooner or later people in Helistudio end up wearing blue-black & white color combination. I’m not trying to ‘estonianize’ my students, but blue is simply the most perfect color to wear behind a black piano, don’t you think? 😉

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! 💫

This one is called “Bye Bye Minecraft!” 😉

To all kiddo’s-gamers out there who also study piano: Rule #1 in Helistudio is practice piano first and play computer games later!

Good vibes in my classroom with Lena & Robin-Aare 🙂

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?
Yessss! 🎹💫

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 🙏 ❤️

Fallen Angel by TIX / Andreas Haukeland. Norway didn’t win @eurovision but it’s more important that all fallen angels out there have a new hero to look up to @tixmusic

Thank you for who you are Andreas Haukeland! 🙏

I believe in small wonders. When you learn music, i guess you do the same. Everything grows note by note, piece by piece.

Here’s Sofie @deboissof, her first performance in Pianomarathon. Behind her beautiful voice is also very strong and inspiring young woman. That’s why i’m 💯 fan since our first meeting.

Summer is coming - hopefully we’ll hear more and more of Sofie! 🎙

You've got to put one foot in front of another
With a hand in a hand holding on to each other
Go on and rejoice
'Cause you have a voice!
