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.

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.

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.

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.

Munro
Guitar Lessons for Beginners and Intermediates in London
I am a guitar teacher willing to travel around London. I used to teach guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, and drums in San Francisco. My style of teaching is hands on and not as book based as I believe that this approach generates a deeper interest and understanding of music than a book can bring. Lessons cover basic chords, technique, music theory, and songs (I can pre-learn a song for you). I am flexible when it comes to your musical, educational, and scheduling needs.

Daniel
Music/Audio Production & Guitar Performance & Music Theory
I currently offer teaching and mentoring in the following areas: - Music/Audio Production - Guitar Performance - Music Theory My methods are generally adapted to each individual’s needs and objectives, however, they do not include classical music training approaches, such as sight reading or formal classical music training. Instead, my approach focuses on developing an intuitive understanding of music, through understanding elements such as intervalic structures, mathematical permutations, analogies derived from other disciplines etc. The ultimate goal of my approach is to allow the individual to form a way of thinking, which will allow she/he to compose, produce or play ANY type of music.

Fausto
Sicilian Guitarist offers lessons in Classical guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar. I also give Italian language lessons
Hi, I am Fausto. I am an Italian musician, trained in the classical guitar. I have been studying guitar since the age of fifteen at the conservatory in Sicily. I finished my degree at the BENEDETTO MARCELLO conservatory in Venice. I compose my own music in the classical style with the guitar. Within the genre of classical music I play, for example, Bach and Giuliani. As an electrical guitarist, I am used to playing with the fender sound, blues, and jazz. I offer lessons for people who would like a start in the guitar world. I enjoy teaching all ages and I am open to see what and how you would like to learn. We can learn the technical way or be more open with playing. For example with children, I am used to teaching with the book from the composer Sagreras. However, I am open if you'd like to improve in some song which you love!;) The music is my life, playing and learning new things is always what I'm looking up. I like teaching because having the possibility to give something really amazing to someone makes me happy and more real with myself. If someone loves playing and needs help, it would be amazing to be as helpful as people have been with me If you need some Italian lessons I am also Italian and I can offer Italian teaching as well. If You need some lessons you can count on me for conversation or grammatically lessons.

Daniel
Electric/Acoustic Guitar Lessons From Beginner to Advanced
In my 10 years of experience playing guitar in various bands, I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge about a plethora of different genres that I am able to teach confidently in including, Rock/Metal, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Country and anything else that you may want me to teach. I can also help with key musical skills including fingerboard harmony, technique, vocabulary, song/solo analysis, improvisation, music theory, ear training and sight reading. My goal as a teacher is to give the student effective tools for building their musical vocabulary in a fun and effective way without making it feel too much like school. Each lesson is catered toward the individual. I aim to teach every student the integral aspects of whichever genre they would like to learn and help them through anything they may be struggling with with care and patience.

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.

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.

Easel

Whether you look to implement these skills in jazz or rock, the skills learnt here are applicable to all genres of music.

Jessica
Songwriting & musicianship - Composing on an instrument
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.
