Electronic Music Production and Sound Design with Ableton

I am an experienced electronic music producer and enthusiastic teacher with students of different levels.

I love sharing my knowledge and to inspire other producers and musicians. I like to focus on the individual skills and goals, and to make specific lesson plans based on each student needs (i.e. for beginners - have a full understanding of production techniques and software features / produce releasable tracks within 6 months; for advanced students - finding a signature sound, improving sound design and mixing skills)

Because of my expertise and versatility, I can teach many different styles of music. As an artist, I mainly focus on producing techno, IDM and house but I have a broad understanding of contemporary music and current trends because of my strong background as a drummer.

Learn how to use your voice correctly and how to improve your natural voice. Stay at home and keep singing guys!)
Hey there, I am Vera, a singer, composer and a vocal coach, a member of NATS(National Association of Teachers of Singing, USA) if you also adore music and singing I would be glad to help you in developing your skills! I prepared students for entering the New York Film Academy to the program "Musical Theatre". Also, I prepared many recitals of my students and their bands in Ukraine, Poland, Canada, Israel, USA, Indonesia, Germany, etc..., recorded a few EP, have clips available on music channels, also perform their songs on the radio. Some of them have their own youtube channels and we are developing it choosing interesting songs for cover. Others write their own songs and have a contract with the music labels in the USA, and I always support these skills. Speaking of my personal achievements I can say that I am a singer and songwriter, I work in several styles- house, lounge, jazz, country, and pop, collaborate with musicians, sound engineers, and producers from many countries. I have experience of writing arrangements and working with professional musical programs such as Cubase, Nuendo, and others, also I worked a lot as a session vocalist in the many recording studios in Ukraine. So I can share my knowledge with you. My methods are directed to get the result as soon as it`s possible and also to develop your natural music skills. That`s why I use the most effective exercises in my work special for each student. Also, my methods are loyal so the student can sing his favorite songs at the lesson and enjoy it. See you at the lessons!

Music Production / Computer Aided Music Course
No matter what genre you like, by taking my course you will learn how to manage the different stages of music production. I detail it in all aspects: mastery of the software, choice of sounds, structure, mixing, effects. The objective of the courses is the acquisition of artistic as well as technical skills. I adapt to different profiles: age, level, pace, style, goals. --- I give lessons via webcam on Google Meet which allow sharing of the screen, as well as the sound. This has the advantage of allowing people to share their screen and the sound of their software with me from their computer, and therefore promote learning even with busy schedules, or even upset in these times of health crisis and covers -fire. It also allows me to listen and advise in real time, as much on the creative aspect (composition, vocals, arrangements) as on the mixing techniques. I adapt to the needs of creation, so I encourage people to apply my advice directly and concretely, during the course.

Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

Ableton & MaxMSP Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing, and mastering. Max, also known as Max/MSP/Jitter, is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations. Depending on your interest I will show you how to use and customise each program to your needs, but also show you how to combine the two in order to get the best of the 2 worlds. Ableton and MaxMSP are a killer combo for anyone that wants to: - expand their musical instrument with electronic extensions - create custom made controllers for their live performances - create complex automations for live or studio use - produce music, compose, arrange - create automated VJ sets to accompany their live performance - create a live looping performance - control backing tracks for live performances - work on generative music - program art installations and much more I will give you sets & patches with examples to accompany the lessons, but also help you build your own creations in MaxMSP or Ableton.

DJ class with a professional and passionate
With 10 years of experience on all DJing media and in different places in French-speaking Switzerland and abroad, it is with great joy that I transmit my knowledge and my passion for music. I am also very active on the Internet, with four sets of mixes, one publication per week. I developed a basic course of about 5 hours, ideal for beginners, to share the knowledge that I myself took 10 years to assimilate as an autodidact. At the end of this training, you will have everything in hand to realize your dream and mix in public. In addition to revealing the secrets that make the difference between good and bad DJ, I will also teach you how to discover music, where to get it and how to organize it. You would save money because I will tell you exactly how to choose your equipment according to your needs and where you get it at the best price. The students are all very satisfied with this course that I gave actively between 2012 and 2015 (see the pictures to read the reviews).
