SEN music provides individuals with learning / physical disabilities a highly musical experience in a supportive and fun environment.

Whether a beginner musician or more advanced, these 30, 45 or 60 minute sessions enable the individual to access music and improvisation using real and virtual musical instruments.

Where appropriate my colour music systems can support learning and interactions.

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.

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.

Giovanni

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 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.

This class is an opportunity to learn violin/ viola or receive tutoring in music theory (up to Grade 8) from an enthusiastic tutor who is passionate about music education. I have a positive approach and take into account the individuals needs and personality. I believe in a whole person approach to musical education and ensuring the student is always comfortable and confident when playing and performing.

Rayan
Piano for all levels - develop confidence and inner singing
I offer piano lessons for all levels. 5 years of teaching experience in conservatories, music schools and in business. I have a very good contact with children. I am demanding but gentle and very patient. I believe that one learns by listening, I am present to allow this listening to be at the center of the course and thus accompany the student on the path of music. I adapt to the need, the desire and the receptivity of each one. The well-being of the student is essential for progress in confidence and joy. The development of listening to the inner song is at the heart of my teaching. For beginners: songs, games, improvisation, creation. The links with song and rhythm are very important to have a healthy foundation. The musical notions are approached gradually by experience then by recognition. Reading and writing are brought about by creation and musical composition. For the more experienced, polyphony and difficult passages can be approached with different tools, by awareness of harmony and melodic modes and polyrhythm. Sometimes it is enough to be aware of simplicity to overcome difficult passages. I push to go further in the quality of the interpretation with simple means to better understand the music and thus allow more expressiveness and freedom. I also offer improvisation, harmony, lessons in musical ensembles, especially vocal polyphony for children, and lessons for specific needs, for example just intonation for singers or other instruments.

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.

Aurélien
Piano lessons at home. I am a 19 year old student in London having done 15 years of piano (including 8 at the conservatory)
You can have fun playing many pieces of all genres (classical, jazz, modern) while learning the basics of music theory in order to perfect the mastery of the instrument. The course aims to give the student the desire to play and progress at the piano. Obviously, my goal is also to support the student to help him refine his technique and his musicality.

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.
