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.

SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hIT or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you already play the guitar or piano, you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antennas are always open :-) and for some it is a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to share my knowledge about how to write a song with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

Guitar and Music Theory Lessons by a Qualified and Experienced Teacher
I specialize in teaching about Music and how to play the Guitar. In class, I always make the effort of understanding what are the goals and interests of all students, as well as their own skills. This way we can address the issues at hand more effectively and make sure the student never loses his/her interest and focus in music and his/her instrument.

I offer good and personalized classes. This means that there will special care with your interest in music and guitar, all basic skills will be worked upon and strengthened, all specific requests and ideas will be addressed, both improvisation and interpretation can be developed and exploring potential, achieving goals and having fun are main priorities.

Julien
Music Production / Computer Aided Music Course
No matter what genre you like, by taking my course you will learn how to manage the different stages of music production. I detail it in all aspects: mastery of the software, choice of sounds, structure, mixing, effects. The objective of the courses is the acquisition of artistic as well as technical skills. I adapt to different profiles: age, level, pace, style, goals. --- I give lessons via webcam on Google Meet which allow sharing of the screen, as well as the sound. This has the advantage of allowing people to share their screen and the sound of their software with me from their computer, and therefore promote learning even with busy schedules, or even upset in these times of health crisis and covers -fire. It also allows me to listen and advise in real time, as much on the creative aspect (composition, vocals, arrangements) as on the mixing techniques. I adapt to the needs of creation, so I encourage people to apply my advice directly and concretely, during the course.
