Guitar workshops: personalized lessons / private training
Folk or classical acoustic guitar. The teaching philosophy is adapted to the level of each individual, according to the pace of work and motivation. For example, for beginners: Technique of the plectrum or fingers, coordination and correction of the right and left hand. Learning basic chords, simple themes, simple rhythms, reading tablatures (...). For intermediaries: development of rhythm, construction of chords, writing of tablatures, basic notions of harmony (...). Depending on your goals, you can learn, if you wish, to play 60 to 80% of current music from the first lessons, which often use the same chords and the same techniques. The objectives take into consideration the following points: -Study of various playing techniques, chords, harmony, music of your choice, rhythm, with reading of tablature, teaching structured around the repertoire you like, technique of developing the musical ear - Discovery of the neck, notes and basic positions of open chords - Left / right hand coordination and rhythm exercises for the right hand - Learning of different pieces of your choice - Left hand control exercises, speed and precision - Learning arpeggios - Work around muscle memory - Learning improvisation, musical play with others - Ear training: use your ears to find chords, melodies, sounds and techniques used -Spend a pleasant moment of exchange, without unnecessary institutional pressure, while obtaining concrete results -Understand and discover the many facets of an exciting and user-friendly instrument - Benefit from personalized advice on your posture and certain pitfalls to avoid when starting alone -Adjust and clarify your self-taught knowledge - Learn tablatures / tabs & in English. Note : - Possibility to use the guitar available on site, during the test phase. - As our teacher is also a singing teacher, it is possible to combine the two disciplines: guitar + vocal instrument, and to work on synchronization, style and accuracy. - Possibility of offering this course (birthday, party, Christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. THE TEACHER : Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field, in renowned international public and private establishments, with careful pedagogy and methodology as the watchwords. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

Do you want to learn all the secrets of the art of creating and composing music in any format?
You will learn to create music in all kinds of styles, languages and eras. Every kind is literally every kind of musical language that humanity has developed, from Africa to Asia to Europe, from the Renaissance to our times and also, thinking about the future. You will learn what you want to learn. Without limit of knowledge. In record time, that's how I learned. You will learn to read and write music and if you already know, you will learn to see it in other ways. Analyze and write music both by hand and with a score editor (Sibelius). You will learn to produce music in DAWs (digital audio stations, such as Pro Tools or Reaper or similar). You will learn the four steps (recording, editing, mixing and mastering) or if you know them, you will improve them. Do you want to compose a symphony? A reggaeton song? Know how free impro or jazz or techno 'work'? Do you want to give wings to your artistic and musical thinking? Secrets that very few musicians know will be at your entire disposal for an extraordinary price. 83 complete albums produced (and many of them, where the piano plays, performed) by me. 778 tracks available on all digital platforms. More than 1000 musical works/pieces composed. Creator, leader and manager of several musical projects. Finalist candidate for the Princess of Girona Awards, grants and awards for musical composition. If you are already a music professional, regardless of fame or wealth, and want to learn more and know more and know more about the art of music, contact me. You will not be indifferent at all.

I’m having a personal approach to each of my students, so you can be sure the lessons are not going to be boring!

Improve your drumming with expert tutor, all levels welcome.
For the last 20 years I have taught hundreds of drummers both privately and in formal institutions such as BiMM London (formerly Drumtech), ICMP and LMA colleges. I have developed a strong reputation, helping musicians to sound great behind the drums. My priorities as a player are always to be able to make the band sound great. I work on fundamentals that are directly applicable in musical situations. Whether I help someone taking their first steps on the instrument, or professional players who want to fine tune their technique, I have a very similar approach: It starts with a dialogue, understanding the person I work with, a diagnostic then a plan to reach our goals.

Flute lessons (Dwarsfluit lessen) and Music theory lessons for all levels
Hello! I’m Roser, a flutist and piccolist currently living in Groningen. I graduated from my bachelor on 2023 in Conservatori Superior de Música “Mestre Tàrrega” in Castelló, Spain. In 2023 I moved to Groningen to start my master studies at Prince Claus Conservatorium. During my bachelor in Spain I worked as a flute and music theory teacher in three elementary music schools and I have complemented my experience with courses in pedagogical strategies. The lessons will be fully adapted to each student and their musical interests or goals. For me it is very important that you can learn all the technical aspects of the flute but also that you can enjoy and express yourself playing the music you like the most.
