About Me

I am a multi-instrumentalist specialising in Contemporary Music Performance on a wide range of instruments. I started playing the Saxophone at the age of 7, followed by Guitar and Bass as a teenager – achieving a Merit in ABRSM Grade 8 on the Tenor Saxophone before leaving secondary school. I was accepted to the London Centre of Contemporary Music as a mature student in 2011, and have been working as a Musician and Educator throughout London since.

My particular interest is in Flow-state and Music Education, and techniques for developing mastery in an easy, fun and intuitive way. I have applied this approach to my own instrumental learning, spending upwards of 30,000 hours over the past decade practicing and now play and teach all the primary instrument groups in the Western Convention.

I love working with children and Adults alike, at any skill level and on any instrument. I try to understand my student’s entire perspective and experience of Music, and use my skills and experience to support them in the goal of attaining creative and technical freedom in their instrument and idiom of choice.

Lessons with the Drummist - learn how to approach the drum kit from zero (or not) and how to self-improve through rhythm
Do you want to make people dance when you play? Is there that crazy drum part you just can't get right? Do you wish to manage the dynamics, the space, the sound of a song? Do you need help to prepare exams? ..(....) Well, there's no one way to do things, and everybody has strengths and weaknesses. So, I propose we see together what is it that doesn’t come out just like you’d want it, and let’s find the right solution for you! My priority as a teacher is to nurture my student’s passion for music. It is essential that playing the drums remains, above all, a fun and stimulating experience, and that studying is a consequence of this passion. Therefore I am devoted to fostering one's desire to improve, and I do provide all the tools necessary to overcome the challenges that you may face along the way. My study program is holistic and is always tailored to your needs, your inclinations and your objectives. All ages, all levels and all music tastes are welcome! Some of the topics I like to cover: - ergonomics, balance, grip - brute technique and the rudiments - hands and feet coordination - the styles; style-chorent fills and variations - the groove, the timing and the slowness - reading and memory, the mental map - copy the greats, listen to the records - finding the sound - playing with others and musicianship

Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Iker
Violin classes for all levels. Solfeggio/musical language and harmony.
Learn violin from the comfort of your home with personalized online classes.

I adapt to your objectives whether you want to delve into the experience of learning to play an instrument, or if you want to improve your previous abilities. If you want to focus on music theory, I can help you too.

GUITAR LESSON for ALL LEVELS ✨ taught by a seasoned CONSERVATOIRE PROFESSOR! 🎶
The lessons can be conducted in English 🇬🇧, Spanish 🇪🇸 , or Italian 🇮🇹 , ensuring accessibility for all students. Age and musical preferences are not limitations; with qualitative daily practice, rather than sheer quantity, progress can be swiftly observed. 💪🏼 🎶 My approach to classical guitar lessons is centered on tailoring them to each student's individual needs and potential. I prioritize fostering enthusiasm and motivation as primary tools for conveying technical and theoretical concepts, alongside a deep love for music. Lessons are open to students of all ages and skill levels. 🚀 The focus of the course revolves around the joy of playing music. Your favorite genres and pieces will take center stage, with a thorough exploration of their codes and secrets. Together, we'll delve into technical exercises and learn to play pièces of your choice or mine, enriching your repertoire and enhancing your playing style. 🤩 For example, we can reimagine pieces by applying advanced techniques such as the CAGED system, incorporating new chords, positions, and techniques like arpeggios and fingerstyle playing. This expands the instrument's capabilities and your playing skills, ensuring continuous progress and improvement. 👨🏻‍🏫 Upon request, the program also includes theoretical studies, which are presented in an accessible manner suitable for both beginners and experienced musicians. Exercises, pieces, and theoretical explanations are structured in a progressive order of difficulty.🔥 The theoretical program covers a range of topics, including guitar tuning, chord theory, scales and modes, finger picking techniques, strumming patterns, metronome practice, learning favorite songs, improvisation, harmony, melody, and rhythm theory.⚡️ Together, we'll embark on a musical journey tailored to your goals and aspirations, ensuring a fulfilling and enriching experience with the classical guitar.🔝☄️

Music Exams Support - any aspect, any board, any level.
Wanting some extra help in preparing for a music exam? Would you like some extra advice on performance techniques? Struggling with your composition tasks? Finding analysis of a piece of music confusing? I am here to help. I worked in a comprehensive school teaching music for over 35 years. In that time I engaged with many different exam boards at GCSE and A level delivering a range of different courses. I am passionate about all aspects of music, whether it be performing, composing or listening and analysis. Whatever you need help with, I am very keen to be able to offer my expertise in any or all of these areas. Each of the three disciplines is intrinsically connected with the other two and having a good grasp of all three will enable you to improve your ability overall.

Private guitar lessons for every level: from basic chords to out of the box improvisation
Hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, and pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. See you soon!

Whether you want to play just for fun or to become a professional pianist I can give you a personalised course. At the beginning of the course, I will evaluate your level and give you recommendations of what we can work on. There are two main types of courses: - a hobbyist course: it won’t be time consuming. I will help you learn new pieces and a little theory and solfege. The primary goal of this course is to make you enjoy playing in your spare time without having to practice too much. - a professional course: in this course I will help you reach the level of a professional musician. I will give you an insight of how to prepare a piece or pieces for a competition or an audition. I will also teach a lot of theory and solfege so that you can prepare for a conservatory or a school of music.
