About Me

Hi, my name is Dave. I'm a Musician, Composer, Guitar, Piano & Bass tutor with over 15 years of experience. After receiving a degree in Jazz and Contemporary Music, I was privileged to enjoy a fruitful career not only as a music teacher but also as a full-time composer and performer, both live and in the studio.

Music which I composed, performed and recorded was screened in over 25 film festivals worldwide. One of my films, called “Crumble”, is starring Amanda Hale and was selected for BAFTA, won the Silver Remi Award at the 50th Worldfest Houston Film Festival (USA) and was the Official Selection of the 17th East End Film Festival (London).

Among many other things, I also composed and produced music for Patreon sponsored gaming-series “Cool Ghosts”, Tesco Promotional campaign and the album “Warped Tension”, published by Evolution Media (i.a. Film4/ESPN/EMI).

Composing for Films

Performing Live

Performing in the Studio

My musical journey began with playing guitar in local rock bands as a teenager. While starting out with fairly simple pop/rock songs, I slowly gravitated towards more progressive genres that allowed the fusion of my many musical influences, ranging from chamber music to hard rock, electronic and trip-hop.

Following my graduation from the Jerusalem Academy, where I received a degree in jazz and contemporary music, I became head of the Guitar department in the municipal conservatory of Ashkelon city.
There, among daily teaching duties, I would start writing orchestral arrangements for the annual graduation concerts.

At the age of 26, I formed an alternative band called Laid8, along with which I was lucky enough to participate in many music festivals around the world and record three releases.

Lead single “Flush” from our debut album “These Faded Lines” gathered considerable radio airplay, which led to a deal with Kent-based management agency Factory Music ltd.

Around that time, I was also approached with a request to help to finalize the musical accompaniment in a couple of theater plays. That experience was so rewarding and refreshing that I started to explore scoring further, subsequently composing for many other productions outside of theater while combining traditional acoustic instruments with modern cutting-edge programming and synthesis.

Ben
Guitar tutor available for lessons, beginners - experienced / All grades covered
I am very open to any area of music subject, theory or technical abilities wishing to be covered or improved upon. Any level of ability can be suited for, from beginner riffs to the more intermediate/advanced level player wanting to tweak, polish and improve their playing or a particular area. I am a laid back tutor, patient, with my main goal being help others achieve more musical independence by teaching them the fundamentals that you probably already know!

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.

" UNIQUE " What if telling this story with music could be simple, fun and playful? Knowing how to share your inspiration, your feelings, your emotions, all of this through the guitar? This is what I offer you through my courses! It will be about laying the right foundations with the work of open chords, scales, but also playing expressions, the development of musical ear and gradually going into the depth of certain styles such as blues, funk, jazz, bossa nova, pop, rock to dissect other elements enriching guitar playing. Whether you have no experience or just a few days or weeks of practice, I will accompany you step by step, taking into account your level, keeping one thing in mind: having fun!

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 :)

Folk or classical acoustic guitar. The teaching philosophy is adapted to the level of each individual, according to the pace of work and motivation. For example, for beginners: Technique of the plectrum or fingers, coordination and correction of the right and left hand. Learning basic chords, simple themes, simple rhythms, reading tablatures (...). For intermediaries: development of rhythm, construction of chords, writing of tablatures, basic notions of harmony (...). Depending on your goals, you can learn, if you wish, to play 60 to 80% of current music from the first lessons, which often use the same chords and the same techniques. The objectives take into consideration the following points: -Study of various playing techniques, chords, harmony, music of your choice, rhythm, with reading of tablature, teaching structured around the repertoire you like, technique of developing the musical ear - Discovery of the neck, notes and basic positions of open chords - Left / right hand coordination and rhythm exercises for the right hand - Learning of different pieces of your choice - Left hand control exercises, speed and precision - Learning arpeggios - Work around muscle memory - Learning improvisation, musical play with others - Ear training: use your ears to find chords, melodies, sounds and techniques used -Spend a pleasant moment of exchange, without unnecessary institutional pressure, while obtaining concrete results -Understand and discover the many facets of an exciting and user-friendly instrument - Benefit from personalized advice on your posture and certain pitfalls to avoid when starting alone -Adjust and clarify your self-taught knowledge - Learn tablatures / tabs & in English. Note : - Possibility to use the guitar available on site, during the test phase. - As our teacher is also a singing teacher, it is possible to combine the two disciplines: guitar + vocal instrument, and to work on synchronization, style and accuracy. - Possibility of offering this course (birthday, party, Christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. THE TEACHER : Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field, in renowned international public and private establishments, with careful pedagogy and methodology as the watchwords. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.
