Learn how to write, record, and release a commercial quality song.

Songwriting -

My approach to songwriting is this - anyone can write a song! My goal is to show you some simple, fun, practical and effective methods of how you can write a song (you don't even need to be able to play an instrument!). Once you finish your song, you'll also have the opportunity to record it if you desire to do so (these lessons can tie in very well with the music production lessons). We will cover topics such as:

Lyrics
Chords
Melody
Structure
Co-writing


Music production -

After the initial stages of writing the song, you'll learn how to record it and turn it into a sonically awesome sounding piece of music. We'll cover topics such as:

Recording
Editing
Mixing
Mastering
MIDI Programming (drums and synthesized sounds)
Effects
Dynamics
Equalisation

Genres/Styles:

Rock and pop
Acoustic/singer-songwriter
Orchestral
Gospel
Soundtrack/instrumental


Releasing your music -

After developing your song to an excellent standard, you'll then have an opportunity to learn how to share it with the world on iTunes, Spotify and other digital music stores.


If you are interested in finding out more, please feel do free to get in touch, I'm always happy to help.

Extra information

Composition Electronic Music - MAO - Sound Techniques
Composer of electronic music since 2001, I developed a pedagogy specific to electronic music since 2005, in particular within the Technopol, Hadra and Musiques Tangentes associations, for an amateur or professional audience. I also graduated from the Pantin conservatory in electro-acoustic composition. The idea is to work on your own compositions, identifying the techniques that can help you progress. The ideal is to undertake this work over the long term, but it can also act as a one-off aid. I mainly use Ableton Live 11 software with Push2, but we can also work on Logic, Cubase, Reaper, Fruity Loops, etc.

Ivan
MAO class with a hyper-creative professional named Costals
I published music under the names of Gelivan and Costals. An album and EP in 2017 as Gelivan, then singles in 2019. In 2020 I will release a project a month, minimum, with several videos. My mission is to live music by December 31, 2020 with a prosperous income. I want to be a major player in the world of music and help young people to progress, excel and live. I have an approach that does not dwell too much on the technique, I work rather on the optimal conditioning to become a prolific creator while having fun. Our meetings, associated with your motivation and your daily constancy, will lead you to develop your creativity and will bring you an unequaled satisfaction. It is important that you are strongly determined to make the most of my support. I suggest we see each other once a week, ideally the same day at the same time to make it easier. To create my music, I mainly use Ableton Live, and I highly recommend this same program to my students. I also create a lot of sketches on my iPhone with the Auxy app. Suggestions of habits to develop to become a prolific creator and create a music of your own: - devote at least 10 minutes every day to musical creation - collect sounds that you find interesting - you can record what surrounds you with your smartphone, sample movie dialogues, bits of other music etc. - create a reference playlist with your favorite songs (the most varied possible) - listen actively for 15 minutes of different music, be attentive to the different elements and make notes on what touches us, several listening by focusing on different elements.
