Songwriting 101 (Composition, Lyricism and Education)

101 and small group settings where burgeoning lyricists or songwriters can start to flex their talent in a safe and honest space.

I am a songwriter of 6 years experience, having written with unsigned and signed artists at every skill level. I've taken ideas from the drawing board and handed them over to producers as fully formed songs.

Lessons typically run for an hour as we:
- Bring and share ideas (or the lack thereof)
- Gather up some inspiration
- Write together
- Dissect our favourite songs.

Popular music singing or accompanying keyboard lessons!
Music has the power to change lives. Popular music particularly changed my life. I would have killed for a singing lesson as a child where I was actually taught the music I wanted to learn! This class is for children/teenagers looking to learn about vocal technique through singing the songs that they love!

Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Basic Thai, Daily life conversation, Thai for workplace, Reading and Writing Thai literature
I believe that everyone has a personalized learning style, so I love to explore your interest, your goals first and then adjust it to my teaching approaches and learning activities. I really love to see learners’ confidence and progression. We will make the lessons fun and productive. Basically, the lesson will be started with basic Thai, daily life conversation and topics in society will be discussed and included in the lessons, Slang, or some Thai words will be discussed based on the learner asking for and we will expand it. The lesson will be focused on using the Thai language naturally as well. Moreover, I used to work for both public and private sectors so, for those who need to learn the Thai language and culture in the workplace/business, I can support you in these parts. I look forward to seeing you. Let’s learn and exchange our languages and cultures. See you!

ORAL PREPARATION 🗣️ WRITTEN ✍ PATENT 🎓 BACCALAUREATE by PROFESSOR of Higher & Secondary and PROFESSIONAL COACH Orientation COMMUNICATION
ORAL PREPARATION 🗣️ WRITTEN ✍ PATENT 🎓 BACCALAUREATE By PROFESSOR of TRADE Graduated from Higher & Secondary and PROFESSIONAL COACH State diploma PRESENTIAL and DISTANCIAL Hello, Currently, different contexts lead me to practice my profession as a State-certified Teacher and Professional Coach, also with middle and high school students. Also, for about fifteen years, face-to-face and remote (videoconference), in front of entire classes as well as private lessons at home. Finally, for two years I have devoted myself exclusively to the individual follow-up of my students, at home and / or by video. In particular with the success of high school students in their orientation, in agreement with their life project as well as in agreement with their family. A mission that is particularly close to my heart. Both in scientific and literary profiles, because of having implemented methods aimed at greatly facilitating their learning in complete confidence, with the key to a good improvement in their results. In order to be able to carry out their wishes serenely, in connection with their life project. For the College students, it is a significant gain in autonomy accompanied by higher results with a good homogeneity of their academic profile in both scientific and literary subjects. With for the Third, a successful transition to Second taking into account the first choice of the pupils and their family... Thanks to regular work, both on the understanding of the key words in the texts to be learned and the statements to be understood, as well as than on the structuring of responses. All this, regularly accompanied by continuous control situations (including the College Diploma). Thus, during these two decades I have implemented proven methodological approaches. Some borrowed from the Theatre, others like the Davis method (mind mappings / colors), as well as Mental Preparation or Cognitive Remediation borrowed from Professional Coaching (my specialty). The main objective is to establish a specific framework that can accommodate a methodology adapted to each of my students. In order to motivate your child sustainably, by developing at home a certain agility, and in all subjects. For now, as for his future, when I will no longer be present by his side to accompany him. Finally, working on a subject in order to gain points, generally four from the first trimester of treatment, does not seem satisfactory enough to me ... All the more convinced that I work alongside my profession as a teacher, that of mental trainer with our young athletes in France and in Europe (by videoconference); as part of their tennis preparation for the French and European Championships. Teacher from General Education, mainly in scientific subjects, I suggest you support your child, to become an actor in the construction of his school career, especially in this period so unique but oh so rich in its opportunities and challenges. . Besides that, I practice an hourly rate within the framework of the CESU. In particular in order to benefit from a tax credit immediately within the framework of the CESU +. Or up to 50% less depending on your income. So I propose to facilitate the procedures that allow you to benefit from it from the first lesson.

Je lichaam is je instrument bij het zingen. We proberen dat instrument zo mooi mogelijk te laten klinken.. Tijdens de zanglessen zijn we ook bezig met articulatie, de uitspraak van vreemde talen en ook aan de betekenis van en je gevoel bij een bepaald stuk. Natuurlijk bepalen we samen wat voor soort muziek je gaat zingen. Ook maken we samen een ontdekkingsreis naar jouw favoriete muziek. WIE KAN ER LEREN ZINGEN? Iedereen kan leren zingen. Door de zanglessen zal je merken dat het zingen makkelijker wordt. Bovendien is zingen goed voor ontspanning, zowel van lichaam als geest. Zingen is gewoon genieten!

Learn Dutch fast or improve it in a playful way (webcam)
As a creative copy professional and philosopher, I see every lesson as an experiment. To keep us both on the edge of our seats, I continuously explore new ways of teaching that fit your specific needs. Feel tempted? Book your first lesson and get one extra! Doubts? Dutch might feel a little violent to a delicate mouth in the beginning. But once you get passed that, a sea of inspiring and quirky new ways to express yourself will open up. To help you move beyond that hump, I will adjust my lessons to your personal passions and interests, including your specific reasons to speak and/or write in this language right now. Two kids that are roughly the same level can share one webcam lesson of one-hour minimum. Keep in mind that we will stay online for at least 15 minutes extra, as young ones will need at least two 5 minute breaks.

James
Composition Lessons by experienced composer in a wide range of genres
I am a 28-year old composer, electric guitarist and songwriter based in Den Haag, teaching composition, music theory, and score writing. I teach in English or in Greek. I am half Greek and half Scottish and I have been living in the Netherlands for the last 4 years. I offer lessons in all styles, to all age groups, and for any experience level (ranging from students who want to learn how to read and write music to create their first score, up to more experienced composers who are looking for fresh ideas and improving their skills to really make their music shine, or who are looking for help polishing their composition portfolio for entrance exams). Face to face lessons are preferable, but I also teach online. I am a patient and open minded teacher, and my desire is to help you learn what you want to learn, and make sure you enjoy and take pride in your music, explore a breadth of musical ideas that can inform your work, learn to express your musical ideas as best as possible and nurture your curiosity and excitement about the world of music creation ! My Credentials: I hold a Bachelors of Music degree from Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), and a Masters of Music from The Hague Royal Conservatory. My compositions have been performed in venues such as The Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam), TivoliVredenburg (Utrecht), Korzo Theatre (Den Haag), Casa de Musica (Porto), Onassis Stegi (Athens) and at music festivals including Music in PyeongChang (South Korea), Tectonics Athens (Greece), Gaudeamus Muziekweek (Netherlands). My experience as a performer range from classical guitar studies, to playing electric guitar in rock bands, as well as experience as an improviser, performer of notated contemporary classical compositions, creator and performer of ambient and electronic music. I also am very experienced in ambient and electronic-influenced guitar music, which has given me an in depth knowledge also of the guitar in combination with technology such as guitar effects, computer software and multichannel setups which expand the audio palette of the guitar. I have written songs, I have written orchestra pieces, I have worked as a DIY home producer, I have released albums, and I've performed in concert halls, rock venues, squats and festivals. I even some experience in beat-making. My music has been performed in and has taken me to several countries, including Portugal, The Czech Republic, The U.S.A., Canada, Korea, Greece, The U.K., The Netherlands. My Teaching style: My emphasis is to teach you based on your interests and your needs. The lessons are based around each individual student. You bring me the music you are creating and the skills you want to develop as a composer, and I build my lessons around that. My primary goal is help you develop your voice as a composer, so the starting point for our lessons will always be your music. My aim is always to help you find what the heart of your composition is about, and help you to bring this out and really make it shine. To help illustrate ideas about topics we discuss I will bring examples that can help inform the music you are creating, we will explore ideas of arrangement, orchestration, rehearsal leading and / or production to help flesh out your music, as well as music theory and using scores of other composers.

Singing lessons: Vocal technique oriented to diferrent styles. (Opera, Jazz, Pop, Rock) Breath managment, body consciousness, placement.
I´m a profesional Opera Singer, who is also giving lessons in vocal technique since 7 years. This class is for begginers and intermedium level singers who want to improve the manage of their voices. The class starts with different vocalizations and breathing exercises to warm the body and start to understand how the voice works. Then we start to sing in order to apply the new concepts to different songs. The class its adaptable to every pupil, because everyone has their one vocal history, which means, they have different problem, which need differents aproaches.
