Music Production / Computer Aided Music Course
No matter what genre you like, by taking my course you will learn how to manage the different stages of music production. I detail it in all aspects: mastery of the software, choice of sounds, structure, mixing, effects. The objective of the courses is the acquisition of artistic as well as technical skills. I adapt to different profiles: age, level, pace, style, goals. --- I give lessons via webcam on Google Meet which allow sharing of the screen, as well as the sound. This has the advantage of allowing people to share their screen and the sound of their software with me from their computer, and therefore promote learning even with busy schedules, or even upset in these times of health crisis and covers -fire. It also allows me to listen and advise in real time, as much on the creative aspect (composition, vocals, arrangements) as on the mixing techniques. I adapt to the needs of creation, so I encourage people to apply my advice directly and concretely, during the course.

Ableton & MaxMSP Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing, and mastering. Max, also known as Max/MSP/Jitter, is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations. Depending on your interest I will show you how to use and customise each program to your needs, but also show you how to combine the two in order to get the best of the 2 worlds. Ableton and MaxMSP are a killer combo for anyone that wants to: - expand their musical instrument with electronic extensions - create custom made controllers for their live performances - create complex automations for live or studio use - produce music, compose, arrange - create automated VJ sets to accompany their live performance - create a live looping performance - control backing tracks for live performances - work on generative music - program art installations and much more I will give you sets & patches with examples to accompany the lessons, but also help you build your own creations in MaxMSP or Ableton.

Music Theory / Piano / Music Production Lessons for all Levels
Hi everyone, seems like Corona is not easing up and clubs, concert halls are remaining closed. So, I have time for new students for music theory, piano, improvisation, composing, music production on Ableton, and singing. From beginner to advanced levels, you all are more than welcome ! Helping others to discover their musical tendencies is my superpower, it’s been a desire for years. When I do a music lesson, I firstly observe their strong side and help them feel in touch with that. I create a personal working journey for every other student and do teach what they want to learn through the easiest way they can internalize a simple idea, making music with more than 14 years of experience in the music education field,. I’m here For beginners who want to learn basics in music theory & harmony, improvise on the keyboard & piano, create chord progressions on your own, understand the logic behind composing & producing, and know actually what they are doing on your own productions. For advanced, to freshen up your knowledge, get deeper on a subject, or gain another perspective towards your musical approach. Worldwide for online lessons or private in Amsterdam. Don’t be shy, please get in touch ! WHO IS SHE? My name is Lora, I am a classically trained pianist with a degree in Composition & Performance. I received training in music in various disciplines as a composer in my bachelor's degree and as a sound designer in my Masters's degree. Today combining them to make my own music, besides, help music lovers to find their own way of learning and reflecting on music is what I mainly do. In the last fourteen years, I have worked with students of all ages and from different levels. My main purpose is to help the student to discover their tendencies and internalize a simple idea, making music. I give piano lessons at home or on location in Amsterdam and surroundings. It is my belief that whether it is piano or another instrument, creating melodies and sound with the assist of your body&mind is all by itself a beautiful idea to sustain.

Ableton Live - Getting your ideas down into a workable format to create a full working track! No prior knowledge needed!
I specialise in making music with the computer when there isn't a whole bunch of theory knowledge there. I can teach you to quickly and efficiently make that tune in your head into a reality, then turn that into a full track. If you have tried a few tutorials or courses and they didn't fit with you because of all the engineering jargon and theory based approach, this course is for you! I learnt to make music because I was hearing all these songs in my head but wasn't good enough at any instrument to materialise them. Ableton allowed me to hash through ideas, jam with them, then finally turn them into a full working track. I have also worked as a live and studio sound engineer so I do have the theoretical knowledge but can communicate in the language of learners from all different levels. I think there are a lot of people that just need to express what they have in there head and Ableton is by far the best program for that. It is very intuitive, "jammable" and so much fun! For me Ableton is my instrument but I also play the drums, piano and bass.

Music Composition and Production (Logic Pro X) – Online classes
Music production and composition is a key skill for any musician looking to accurately translate what's in their heads into reality, alongside the continued development of their creative musical ability. It can be very easy when composing song and chord structure to get caught in loops, repeating old patterns with little new. These can be subverted by new creative contexts, tapping in to unexplored areas. Additionally, a micro and macro learning of music theory will expand possibilities. I can teach Production to an Intermediate level and Composition to an Advanced level. Classes will specifically cater to each individual student.

Luc
Electronic Music Production (Ableton, Beatmaking, Sound Design, Recording, Mixing)
I can help out beginner to intermediate producers. We can start all the way from the beginning or focus on specific topics that you would have questions about. I can teach you to produce tracks in an intuitive way without the use of music theory but can also incorporate the basics of music theory in the lessons. I’m specialised in sound design, playing live sets on stage and developing the identity of artists. It helps me to get intermediates to the next level. When you want to start with music production you need to work in a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). I work mainly with Ableton because it's very intuitive and "jammable". It's a great DAW to work in, especially for beginners. Preferably my lessons will be focused on Ableton but I can also work in other DAW's because the fundamentals are mostly the same in all of them. The following aspects will be covered in Ableton Live: 1. The Basics (overview of the layout) 2. Arrangement, session and clip view 3. Working with sequencers and MIDI 4. Recording and routing 5. Audio and MIDI effects 6. How to work with the built-in instruments in Ableton Live. 7. How to go from a basic beat to a finished track. 8. Mixing and mastering 9. The basics of music theory 10. Intermediate: sound design, synthese, synthesizers, sampling, field recordings 11. Intermediate: developing your own liveset with MIDI controllers, drumcomputers and synthesizers 12. Intermediate: developing your own sound and identity If you have any question, don't hesitate to message me!

Gilles
Brussels singer-songwriter gives lessons on music production from A to Z!
MY MUSICAL PAST: After many trips abroad, a training in jazz piano (Antwerp) and in "electronic music production" at the SAE (Brussels), I released in November 2017 my first EP titled "Into The Star" which allows me to to play on several Belgian stages including the Botanique last March. At the moment, I am working full time on my "artistic ambition". My projects are mainly: the imminent release of my second EP "T.eye.M" and the desire to share my knowledge with ultra motivated people and passionate about music. METHODOLOGY: The objective of the training is that you will be able to EXIT A PROJECT ALL ONLY (composition - arrangement - mix - mastering - diffusion) My method is characterized by a trip between two poles: objectivity and subjectivity. Objectivity: Giving through the sharing of my in-depth knowledge on the subject as well as an interesting retreat, allowing to see the music industry as a whole. Subjectivity: Giving through the sharing of my experiences and my artistic points of view on the music and the elements that produce it. The desire to have students for several weeks allows me to know enough about them that to advise them at best in the paths they undertake. The courses will therefore be a balanced mix between: - Training in digital music / computer (MAO / ...) - Training in acoustic music / instruments (piano, guitar, voice, ...) Have you always wanted to have control over your entire production? Do you have ideas in mind that you can not materialize? Come !!!!
