About Me

Music Production - Songwriting - Guitar Tutor
I am a recent BA Creative Musicianship graduate of ICMP with previous experience in people-oriented
service roles and eager to become a Music tutor specialised in guitar and music production.

Studying at ICMP helped develop my experience of relevant theoretical and practical skills as a performer, music producer and songwriter as well as a guitarist, allowing me to be able to teach guitar, music theory at an basic Intermediate level. Also I am capable to teach songwriting and music production. I am use to of setting up workshops and music lessons as well to take on live studio and home recording sessions, as I have been working with several artists and peers at ICMP to produce exceptional sound quality.

I am familiar with programme such as Logic ProX practicing sound synthesis, sound-design and sound testing. My professional background as music producer and sound engineer also includes setting up equipment, arranging and conducting music theory and songwriting sessions, adjusting settings, and running sound tests while communicating effectively with performers and managers to drive recording and performance success.


Music is an important tool of interaction and self exploration and I believe it is necessary to make the student passionate about it without imposing a specific learning method. My goal as music tutor is to primarily invite my students towards music explorations and subjectivity of musical instinct and taste, designing classes based on the receptive and learning abilities of my student as the learning process isn't always the same for everyone.

Gema
Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Aleksandra
Classes of singing jazz, pop and all other kinds of modern music in Copenhagen
Aleksandra is a trained singer, singing teacher and choir conductor from the Academy of Music in Gdansk and Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya in Barcelona. She took to the stage in her childhood and has been teaching music for the last 6 years. For several years she was a chorister of the prestigious Polish National Youth Choir and leader of Vocal Quintet Solifonia. Currently, she is a choir conductor and the founder of CHOIR CLUB in Korskolen. What can you expect from her teaching? She believes that singing can be passion, a communication tool, a means of therapy and so much more: more than you can imagine! In her classes, you will learn key vocal techniques as well as learning to understand your voice. You will discover the deeper meanings of the songs you sing as you seek to express them to the world. As she is working towards becoming an Accredited Teacher of IVTOM (International Voice Teachers of Mix) she focuses on delivering teaching based on the Mix principles: by mixing the chest and head voice you receive the full benefits of “both voices”: the natural and powerful sound of the chest voice, and the beauty and range of the head voice. As a singer learns to sing using both of these resonances and trains the vocal folds to stay together, it is possible to vocalize smoothly and evenly from one register to the next. The relationship of the two elements working together will create an even, smooth vocalization and, as a result, eliminates the “breaks” in the voice. She has a good knowledge of playing the piano, so you can sing along to her accompaniment or accompany yourself under her supervision. What does the first lesson include? You’ll talk about: - your background and musical experience - all the circumstances that can influence your sound production - your needs, expectations and plans You also find out: - what your bad habits are - how you can start your singing technique - what kind of exercises will help you best achieve your singing goals Who is welcome? - Children (8+), adolescents and adults - Singers of all kinds of popular music - Students who want to learn hearing / rhythm theory - Individuals, groups and families
