We are a small team of dedicated professionals with a wide range of skills and experience. We love what we do, and we do it with passion. We look forward to working with you.
We believe that education should not stop at the school walls. It is never too early, nor too late, to experience the beauty of learning and to discover one’s own potential, as well as hidden passions that have never had the chance to be expressed. We believe that the discovery of talent should start as early as possible and last a lifetime.
The Nid des Talents sets out to be a point of reference for the local community. We offer opportunities aimed at families with children, from birth through to adolescence and beyond. All our professionals will help families understand how the early years can nurture the development and fulfilment of their children’s lives.
The role of teachers and parents is to guide children, enhance their natural sense of wonder, and support them in their process of self-development. An important aspect of their work is to observe the specific needs of each child individually, their inclinations and abilities and to help them evolve as a whole being.

Jelizaveta Saimra-Khan Violin
Jelizaveta is a violin graduate from the Heino Eller Music College in Tartu, Estonia. She also completed a music pedagogy course at the Tallin Conservatoire in 2019. Since 2016, she has been working as a music teacher and performing violinist in several ensembles and orchestras.
She grew up in a musical family and became passionate about the violin when she was only five years old. That is why she understands how important the emotions that come with the first steps in musical education are for young students. As a teacher, she finds it important to show respect for the unique character of each student and to build up a strong relation with the children and their parents.
Jelizaveta has already some experience in teaching young children. Since 2021, she has developed an interest in the Suzuki method and started studying teaching material and observing lessons of Suzuki teachers. In September 2022, she will start the level 1 teacher training for Suzuki violin teachers at the conservatory of Antwerp (Belgium).

Rebecca Wannyn Guitar
Rebecca studied classical guitar at the Conservatoires of Leuven and Ghent. Since 1997, she has been an active music practitioner both as a teacher and as a player in various chamber ensembles. When in 2015 she moved to Luxembourg, she realised that despite the important role music plays in young children’s lives, the country had little to offer for them. Determined to bridge the gap, she resolved to update her knowledge and formally train as a Suzuki guitar teacher. The method offers an inclusive approach, involves the whole family and promotes peer support; technically it pays attention to repertoire and good posture, all indispensable qualities for a musician to freely express themselves through music.
