Music Composition and Music Technology - from Songwriting and Dance Music through to Contemporary Classical.

As a composer and producer with wide ranging skills, I balance tailoring my lessons to each individual pupil, while also looking to broaden their musical abilities with relatable knowledge. For example, teaching classical composers recording and mixing techniques to help them create recordings of their works, or teaching dance music producers jazz harmony to create interesting chord sequences.

I am also able to provide support for GCSE/BTec/A Level courses.

Extra information

Ideally I prefer my pupils to travel to my home to make use of my setup, but we can form other arrangements if appropriate.

Paul
Electronic Music production in Ableton Live or Logic
Ableton Live is as powerful software for musicians of all sorts. As a musician you will need to be able to understand physics of sound and its vibration through many exciting useful FX plugins and Virtual Instruments ( VSTs). I have designed this course as a practical guide to Electronic Music production specifically made for people who don’t know where to start. 

You will learn how to make a composition, with your own recordings, create multi track music projects and use advanced techniques not only to have fun with it but also to compose you own songs without anyones help.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time.

Danny
SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please Everybody generally consists of chords and lines of text. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hit or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you play 'what' guitar or piano, then you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antenna 's are always open :-) and for some it's a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and 2 sixes lines - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can get strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all, I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to write my science about songs, share it with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book with me for an hour. Then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

Raúl Cicuéndez
Saxophone lessons with professional saxophonist for all levels, children or adults. English, Español, Français
Professional saxophonist eager to teach and work to make the best of yourself! Classes are for all levels, children or adults. We follow a working method where you will develop in a continuous and deep way your musicality, way of playing, expressiveness and technique. -------------------------------------------------- ---------------------- Raúl is a Spanish saxophonist who finished his MASTER DIDACTIC in 2018 in the Ecole Supérieure des Arts in Mons. Before, he also followed a MASTER of INTERPRETATION at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (2015-2017) in the class of Alain Crepin and Simon Diricq. He studied at the "Musikene" (Higher Conservatory of Music of the Basque Country) with Eric Devallon, Tomás Jérez, Antonio Felipe Belijar and Miguel Ángel Lorente. Passionate about multidisciplinary artistic creation, he thinks of mixing all the arts in the same show as an aesthetic finality. This type of research has been observed in his project for his final master's recital in Brussels where he created a project based on Maslow's theory of human needs hierarchy where he mixes live, recorded music from the dance, light effects and effects under the name of "according to Maslow ..." At the level of his career as a concert artist, he has played in different ensembles (solo, duet, trio, quartet, orchestra ...) and different countries such as Japan ("Suono Italia" 2010), Belgium (2016 Musiq3 Festival) ), Artonov Festival at BOZAR in 2016 ...), France (Dax 2011 chamber music festival) or Spain (Quincena Musical Music Festival 2015, Aste Nagusia 2015, Heineken Jazzaldia 2014, Kutxa Festival 2015, Intercentros Melómano 2010).

(Bass) Guitar, Music theory and Solfège in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht
Hello (future) musician! Do you also have a song in your head that you would like to play? Always wanted to play electric or acoustic guitar or bass guitar? Have you never touched a string, or are you advanced and looking for new challenges? I have been giving guitar lessons since 2007 with great pleasure. In addition to these private lessons, I worked at the Guitar Academy in Amsterdam, at Muziekles Den Bosch and at Art in Music in Utrecht, next to my work as an executive musician. I studied at the Rockacademie in Tilburg and Musicology at Utrecht University. Broad interests, reflected in the hoevelheid styles I play and education (from pop and rock to salsa, tango and gypsy to metal and jazz). I also give solfège and music theory. It does not matter how exotic your interest, I can help you get better! In addition, I can choose and arrange songs for you, so that there is no limit to your imagination: learn to play what you want to learn to play. These lessons are not given in a large, impersonal music school: lesson duration and lesson dates are discussed and are flexible. Personal and smooth, easier for everyone. Besides guitar enthusiast teaching is a big passion of mine, and I think that is essential to be able to offer good lessons. Whether I teach you how to play your first songs in a few lessons, or whether we are going to pick up some tough pieces, it is a pleasant and productive learning process. Lessons in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht or at extra cost at home. If you have questions, mail or call!

Zara
Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. I graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music, Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude) and also the Post-master degree in classical singing. I am currently an opera singer working with conductors and directors from houses and studios such as Lyric Opera Studio Weimar, Komische Oper Berlin and Royal Opera House. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions at their ABRSM exams, some of them also won first prize at competitions. However, I do not teach music because of this. Distinctions and prizes are bonuses, but most importantly, I hope my students can enjoy and understand music. For beginners, I focus very much on building basic techniques, but I also share my knowledge about music history and theory when they need. For more advanced students, I teach more about musicality and music presentation, alongside with basic techniques. Since I grow up at one of the best English schools in Hong Kong, I can communicate in English very fluently without accent. Besides English, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese are my mother tongues. I can also speak some simple German. I am confident that I will provide my students the best learning experience.

Lou-Indigo
Guitar / Bass / Ukulele / Theory - LOUKELELE MUSIC ACADEMY -
REGISTRATION SEPTEMBER 2019 OPEN !!! The course I propose is BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH, with a program adaptable to your desires / needs with the COURSE BOOK that I wrote and produced especially for my students. Age is therefore not restrictive when you will be able to work with qualitative (and not quantitative) daily work in order to quickly observe your progress and not sink into the frustration of a quest towards an absolute that seems vain and time-consuming. Here the pleasure of playing music is put forward. This is of course accompanied by the pleasure of learning more in theory and being able to directly apply new knowledge on his instrument and identify its common or rare use in the pieces discussed in class. Music theory is popularized to be accessible to anyone, both for those who are connoisseurs and for those who discover everything from absolute zero. The exercises, songs and theoretical explanations offered throughout the program are therefore in an order of progressive difficulty. I wrote and produced 2 books of my method to learn the guitar and the music, that I sell to accompany my course and your apprenticeship in the best conditions and so that you can continue the course even at home and to review etc ... . There is ONE BOOK OF COURSES containing all the theoretical and practical program of the year, as well as a BOOK OF EXERCISE on the scales and modes that you can buy directly at home. The kind of music you love most will be the focus of the course, although I am particularly oriented in terms of metal / rock music and classical music in my style of play, I am a versatile ear and who appreciates a lot of very different (even contradictory) things. The writing of music and music theory are also two areas in which I am in my element and which allow me to travel transversally in music genres as different and varied as they are and to understand them, to learn them and therefore to retransmit their codes and secrets. You can play a guitar that I made available for the course, and you can also bring your own if you prefer. For bondage lovers the course can be given for 7-string / 8-string guitars. To finish I would like to add more personal that I am professional, dedicated to my profession of musician and teacher, I am always available to answer via message, mails, short videos or even for the following course, to students who contact me outside of class for a reminder or advice on a concept discussed in theory or a difficulty encountered in a piece :) /! \ CANCELLATIONS-REFUNDS-CONDITIONS /! \ For parents who want to put their children to music to occupy them: I advise you to make sure that the motivation comes from your child in the first place! I happened to be confronted with children who did not really want to take these courses and so I had to stop because lack of motivation of the child and boredom very visible! If for any reason whatsoever (on my side or yours) the classes are no longer given while you have paid for several lessons in advance, THE DIFFERENCE WILL BE REIMBURSED BY APPRENTUS, who stores the money and tells me pay per course (which you confirm). So no worries on that side! If we do not finish all the courses you ordered, the non-courses will be reimbursed BY THE SITE! Thank you for your reading and your interest if you have read so far. You can find here an indicative list of objectives that I propose in my program, which can adapt of course to your request. The general objectives of the course: --- Tuning / tuning and knowing his guitar: * Standard Tuning * Drop Tuning * Open Tuning * Adjust the optimal tension of the strings * Adjust the shaft axis * Adjust the action of the strings * Choose the strings adapted to the style of play / tuning * Change his strings --- Understand / Modulate / Choose the Sounds of an Amp / Effect Pedal: *Volume * Gain (Low / High) * Treble * Middle * Bass *Presence * Delay * Reverb *Chorus * NoiseSuppressor / NoiseGate * Wah * Octaver * Harmonizer * Etc ... -Know his chords: --- Know his scales and his modes * The Major Mode (7notes) * 3 Minor Modes (7 notes): Natural / Melodic / Harmonic * 2 Pentatonic Modes (5notes): Major / Minor * Blues Mode (6 notes): Minor Pentatonic + The "Blue Note" * 2 Modes of Triads (3notes): Major / Minor * 2 Triad Modes Seventh (4notes): Shift + 7th / Min + 7th * Phrygian and Phrygian Dominant Mode * Hungarian Fashion Etc ... --- Technique to the Pick / Plectrum / Tab / Pick (Electric Guitar): * Alternate Picking * Fast Picking / Tremolo Picking * Hybrid Picking * Palm Mute * Natural Harmonics * Pinch Harmonics * Artificial Harmonics * Shredding * Tapping * Sweep Picking * Legato Picking --- Strumming / Hand Picking (Acoustic Guitar) * "SnareDrum" percussion on the guitar * Arpeggios pinched with 4 fingers + thumb * Rasgueado (Flamenco Technique) * Generic Strumming * Fingerstyle Picking * Two-finger picking + Legato for fast melodies (eg a solo) -Play the metronome -Learn his favorite songs -Improvize solos - Understand and know the music theory -Theory of Harmony -Theory on the Melody -Theory of Rhythm
