About Me

Now a qualified Teacher of Music, for much of my life I was largely a self taught singer-songwriter and guitarist / keyboardist who had won songwriting and pop personality competitions, scored music publishing deals, had my music in film, advertisement, documentaries, and played live on radio stations.
It was later that I formally studied music and developed my colour music system to support learning music whilst completing a Music Degree at Goldsmiths, graduating with 1st Class Honours.
As a music teacher in SEN schools I have witnessed the positive impact that creating music through exploring has on people with physicals and learning disabilities and have found some of the most valuable musical contributions from pupils in these settings.
I am a nurturing and encouraging teacher with a sense of humour and great patience.

Songwriting is a great skill to have and a useful means of expression. Songwriting and musicianship involve using your instrument (guitar or keyboard usually) to create a song (lyrics and music) or piece of instrumental music if you prefer. I will guide you through the theory in as much or as little depth as you prefer, using it merely as a tool to better learn your craft of composition. For less experienced musicians, we can use my own color music system to find and remember where notes are on the instrument. Whether you are already an aspiring songwriter, just beginning, or thinking about embarking on the journey of learning to be a songwriter, these classes can offer you a scaffolding upon which to hang your talent. Together we can flesh out the ideas of your compositions that when realized will give you an incredible feeling of having created your own structure of beautiful sounds.

Fabio
Piano, Music Theory, Music Composition, Solfeggio.
Discover the beauty of playing piano or keyboard, being able to read a score, composing your own music. Graduated in Classical Piano from an Italian Conservatory and with a Master Degree in "Music Theory and Composition - Scoring for Film and Multimedia" form New York University (US), I am a passionate and patient teacher. My lesson are tailored according to your needs: you can learn piano technique, interpretation, how to play your favorite song, music theory and solfeggio. Do you need to prepare an exam? I will help you in that. If you would like to compose music, I can teach you the right way to create a melody, to harmonize it, to compose music for single instruments or for orchestra in the style you like.

Rida
Guitar, Bass, Piano, Song Writing, Music Production
Instrument Tuition: Very flexible approach, I will teach based on individual needs. Beginners will learn the basics of the guitar, basic chords, basic scales etc. And advanced players will learn more complex chords, intricate scales, harmonies and improvisation. If you just want to learn how to play your favourite songs, then I will teach you how to do that. If you want to learn about song writing, I will teach you that. Anything and everything. Logic Pro X: Equally as flexible and I will adhere to individual needs, I may need to start from the very basics even for proficient users. I have many years of experience and I graduated from Manchester MIDI School as a specialist in Logic Pro X. I will explain, demonstrate and test students about each subject per lesson. We will look at MIDI, editing, recording, compression, EQ, Mastering, mixing, time stretching, FX, plugins, remixing, audio design, sound manipulation and so on.

Jane
English Piano Lessons, Theory Lessons, Singing, Composition
I have been teaching for almost four years. My lessons are tailored to the individual and I teach all ages and stages. Depending on whether you are looking for a hobby, an escape or a new skill to develop, I would love to teach you. I grew up classically trained in piano, violin and singing, but from the age of sixteen I started to compose rock and pop songs. In the last few years, I have been lead vocalist in an electronic band and I am now working on an electronic solo project. I write, produce and perform as a pianist/vocalist at special events. I believe in providing a full-on creative education. Nothing is more uninspiring than lessons full of rules. Of course, there are some basic principles to be guided by when learning music, but once you have those then you will have a lot more freedom. My repertoire covers Mozart, Brahms, Bach, jazz standards (Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald etc.), classic rock/pop (The Beatles, The Stones/David Bowie/Kate Bush etc.) and chord chart learning/composition.

Lorane

Liam
Music Tutoring - Theory, Composition, History, and Technology
I specialise in tutoring music from beginner level to secondary school, having taught in the classroom up to IB and A Level music. I have taught composition and music technology coursework in these higher level studies and have had students attain a place at Oxford University to read music. No matter if you are a performer, composer, or academic musician, a solid grasp on music theory is extremely important. I have taught theory from beginner to advanced level and can tailor lessons to specific needs. I am a freelance composer and producer outside of tutoring and love to provide lessons for those who share the same enthusiasm for this creative process. The focus will be on honing composition and production techniques and refining the musical language of the artist. Even for beginner-entry creators, learning this at the start would be excellent for development.

Giovanni Paolo
Online Music Production Course with Ableton Live - ANY STYLE!
My method is ... LEARN BY MAKING YOUR MUSIC! The student will learn techniques, stylistic elements, tricks ... already by working on his first tracks: to keep motivation and satisfaction high, the result is always visible! The lessons are face-to-face and personalised according to the level of experience and the musical style of the student. The presentation of the information is clear and accompanied by practical examples. I'll show you how to: - use Ableton Live, - program and control synthesizers and virtual instruments, - use microphone and sound card to record your voice and your instruments, - process sound with effects (plugins) and optimize it for diffusion (mixing and mastering), - make your songs, from start to the last details. I also speak Spanish, French, German and Italian.

Aykan
Ableton Live, Sound Design and Music Theory for Beginners and Intermediates
Ableton Live is the new standard for electronic music. Its very easy to learn and with only a couple of lessons you will be able to start making your own music! Used by almost all EDM, House, Deep House and even Pop artists it is the must-have tool in the new decade. In our classes we will go over making beats, basic music theory, song-writing techniques and production techniques including advanced sound design with synthesizers. If requested, we can also move on to mixing to make your tracks sound just like what you hear on the radio. I specialize in Ableton Live and have released albums on multiple record labels. I hold a degree in Music Production and Sound Engineering from Point Blank Music School and I am currently the Ableton tutorial writer for Attack Magazine. I also own my own recording and production studio in East London.

Elena
Singing lessons by teacher with Master / 20 years of experience
Singing lessons (lessons for children below): Graduate of the Brussels Conservatory in jazz singing (Master), I sing professionally and am pedagogue for 20 years now. I offer private lessons and semi-singing in Watermael-Boitsfort (corner of the broom). Classes are directed to the desires and demands of the student. Here is what I propose ... Voice technique: through vocalizations and other fun exercises, learn to use your body and your voice in an effective and healthy way. Directory (or not): chosen by the student and the teacher. My preference goes to jazz and all its branches and roots (bossa, brazilian, blues, gospel, polyphony, ...) because it's for me the best training but I'm open and I sing myself (almost) every other styles ;-) Improvisation: the best for the end :-) listening exercise, creativity, self-expression, voice and musicality. Through very progressive and clear exercises, we will explore (if the pupil desires) vocal improvisation. Music lessons for children (from 1 year to + -6-7 years old): Animation of 30 min or 45 min (depending on age) with the same structure that remains, the songs change. Song or rhythmic activity to say hello Gesture song (fine psychomotricity) Songs with maracas eggs (keep a pulse, manipulate the eggs, work on coordination) Presentation of a musical instrument Song to be accompanied by children of different percussion instruments Song to move or dance Pre music theory or recognition exercise of noises or instruments (depends on age) Song to say goodbye

Paula
Would you like to learn to play the violin? Violin lessons for everyone!
I am a professional violinist graduated with distinction at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Master) and holding a Bachelor Diploma from Codarts (Rotterdam). I teach students of all ages and levels. I have nine years of teaching experience in the Netherlands ( privately and at music schools: Hart Muziekschool in Haarlem and Vioolstudio 020! in Amsterdam). In my lessons I help the students to find a good contact with the instrument and cultivate a positive relationship with music by integrating the development of aural skills, sense of rhythm and an optimal body use, enabling them to connect with their musical imagination. The lessons are adapted to each student's needs and wishes.

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
