Music Craft! (Instrumental Lessons, Song Writing, Music Theory...)

Whether we're learning an instrument, writing a song, or developing our understand of musical ideas, letting music into our lives brings a unique and unmatched level of joy and fulfilment. As an award winning songwriter and professionally teaching musician myself, I love sharing my knowledge with those looking to learn a new skill, develop their craft, or simply take up a new hobby!

These lessons are open to absolutely anybody who want to try something new. Each lesson is specifically catered to the students needs and requirements, as we strive to develop whichever aspect of music craft you may be looking for! Want to sing and play your favourite songs? Want to write and produce your own music? Want to learn about what makes music "sound good"? We can cover any and all of these, and more!

Having taught 2 - 50+ year olds for 10+ years, my instrument specialties include guitar, electric guitar, piano, bass guitar, double bass, ukulele, trombone, voice and some other odd and wacky things! Additionally, I have been working as a professional song-writer for 10+ years, having studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and winning awards such as Best Song Written for Film and TV at the APRA Awards in Australia.

I look forward to hearing from you and getting started on our musical journey together :)

Denise
Singing classes in Vienna for all age students and musical styles (Online/Offline)
Dear students: My name is Denise and I'm a professional singer with a singing master's degree from Catalonia's Music College (ESMUC) specialized in Historical Singing, Musicology and Music Education. My experience runs mostly in early and classical music with an active performing life, nevertheless I also have the experience and knowledge of popular musical styles such as Latin-American folk, jazz and musicals. As a docent or vocal coach I've collaborate with different academic institutions and private artistic projects, focusing mostly on international students or social integration programs. I have years of experience teaching children, teenagers and adults in both Latin-America and Europe, therefore understanding different appreciation levels and needs. My main goal is to help the student discover her or his voice while enjoying making music. **Class suggestions and indications** No experience is needed just bring your enthusiasm and favorite music. Classes can be given either in English, Spanish, French or Deutsch. There are no limit for styles, bring your favorite music and I will provide a safe environment for your personal and musical growth. For Children I strongly recommend the 45 min class since their attention span and body development is different from an adult. Feel free to contact me in case of further questions. I would love to work together to achieve your musical goals. All my best, Denise

Valentine
Violin, Flute and Solfeggio lessons
VIOLIN: My lessons cover several aspects necessary for good violin playing and free musical expression: healthy body posture, stable technique, attentive listening, musicality, personal development. It is from these notions that the quality of sound, intonation, bowing technique, technical skill, expression, and many others arise. I also give importance to well-being, self-confidence, or other abilities that the student would like to acquire. TRANSVERSE FLUTE: My lessons cover several aspects necessary for good playing of the transverse flute and free musical expression: healthy body posture, stable technique, attentive listening, musicality, personal development. It is from these notions that the quality of sound, digital and respiratory technique, intonation, expression, and many others arise. I also give importance to well-being, self-confidence, or other abilities that the student would like to acquire. SOLFÈGE: My courses cover several aspects necessary for the successful learning of music theory: strategies for recognizing intervals, chords and rhythms and their executions, singing, musical indications, exercises, attentive listening, musicality. These aspects are essential to instrumental practice, because they first allow you to correctly read a score, then analyze and interpret it.

Richard
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! Richard PS: my specified hours are a guideline, if this does not suit you, you can certainly send us a message and we will try to arrange something :)
