Nina
Drum lessons in Amsterdam or remotely (for beginners and intermediate level)
Hello, I am Nina from Amsterdam. After many requests from parents to give drum lessons for his or her children, I now have my own studio to give drum lessons. Adults are of course also welcome! :) I hope to be able to create lessons with you that match what you enjoy. The studio is located in Amsterdam - Schinkelbuurt with two professional drum kits and sound system. If this is too far or for someone else, classes at home and / or online are also possible! I play in several bands myself and will be able to transfer the experience I brought to different genres in the following techniques: - Stick technique - Brushes - Creativity - Hand technique - Improvisation - Timing - Relaxed position - Drum notation - New fills - Grooves I have performed in many different cities with my bands. We were also in the final of the Rob Acda Award last year and we have a lot of airplay at KINKFM. I will also occasionally invite another musician (s) if the need arises so that you can learn to play with them. Playing along with other musicians you learn to master your own instrument!

I can give classes to anyone and any age. I have 2 years of experience giving music classes. Thanks a lot for reading!

In my teaching, I’m aiming to explain the basics of the DAW within the shortest time possible, making use of examples from actual tracks and showing how to achieve similar results, all the while keeping things fun and entertaining. My goal is to help students make sense of composing and arranging in Ableton and to create an effective workflow, utilizing the software’s numerous features.

Eamonn
Guitar and singing lessons in Brussels with a professional singer-songwriter/producer (En/Fr)
Trained at the Music Academy International, I propose private lessons of Guitar, Singing, and/or Audio Production centered on amplified music (funk, soul, jazz, rock, blues, etc.) and adapted to the requests of each student. My classes are open to all, children and adults, beginners or advanced. I attach great importance to the understanding of the technical tools implemented in the interpretation of the pieces, a typical lesson is therefore divided between technical work with clear explanations and actual practice on songs to play or sing. If the student is interested, I also teach the more theoretical aspects of music, such as harmony (scales, chords, modes, improvisation), music theory, rhythm, ear training, and deciphering. I also offer coaching sessions. These are non-regular sessions to target work on specific aspects of the requested repertoire. Each lesson is accompanied by work material (paper or audio) to practice at home. For guitar lessons, an instrument can be made available, for singing lessons, I accompany the student on the piano or the guitar (it is also possible to use backing tracks when the key and tempo are right ) and for audio production, I can provide the software required to start on any operating system (Win, Mac, and Linux) (I don't work with pirated software). Classes are given in my studio in Etterbeek, 5-minute walk from La Chasse. I also teach group lessons for singing, do not hesitate to contact me for more information. Flexible schedule (daytime or evening).
