Music Tuition Across the Board - Guitar, Music Theory, Music Tech and Composition (from Jazz to Pop to Classical)

I have over 10 years of music composition, production, and performance experience. Having studied at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (Jazz Guitar) and Leeds Conservatoire (Jazz and Production), I incorporate my education background in jazz and classical music to bring an in-depth perspective on teaching the likes of the guitar, music theory, composition, and production for a range of ages and abilities.

I can also provide additional support for students studying GCSE/A-Level Music, as well as delivering unique and personalized lesson plans tailored to musicians’ and artists’ own career goals and aspirations (from recording to music business). I teach in both 1-1 and small group scenarios, both online and face to face.

As an actively recording and touring artist and session musician, I have worked with a huge array of different musicians, artists, and producers and have been exposed to a broad range of genres worldwide. I use this knowledge and experience to bring a unique and fresh approach to teaching music in range styles and techniques, from Jazz to Hip-Hop to Classical Music - whether that by analyzing and examining a tune together, learning to improvise over your favorite piece of music, or simply playing for the fun of it.

It is important that I grasp an understanding of where my students are at with their instrument or subject before we begin learning together so that I can plan and ensure I approach the lesson in the right way.

I provide materials in advance of a lesson, such as worksheet activities or listening references, to allow enhanced learning as well as efficiency during sessions. Most of all, it is important that my students feel relaxed and that they are learning what they love. I make it my challenge to bring something fresh and new to every lesson.

About Me

I have extensive experience in the management and administration of an independent record label, a platform that strives for the equal representation of all women within the music industry. I have over 10 years of music composition, production and performance experience. As an actively recording solo artist and session music, I have had my music played across BBC Radio 6Music with Gilles Peterson, as well as on BBC Radio 1 with Huw Stephens. My different projects have ranged from composing and producing soundtracks and sound design for independent films, to managing and delivering Album and EP release campaigns. Since studying at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (Jazz Guitar) and graduating from Leeds Conservatoire with a 1:1 (Jazz Composition and Production), my work has taken me to venues and studios all over the UK and has led me to work with a range of independent artists, composers, engineers and producers across the board, as both a collaborator and an educator. I can deliver organisational change and creative solutions and have been impactful in my roles in all sectors. I am passionate about music and scores across all genres, as well as the representation of all cultures within the music industry, and my value is realised through the successful management of multiple creative projects. I carry extremely strong interpersonal skills and am trustworthy and professional with very effective all-round communication abilities.

I have a wealth of experience with my work as a session musician and freelance creative, with external commissions of composition, production, beat-making & sound design for independent artists and musicians. Collaborators include Maya Law (‘Hitchhiking’ EP - production, guitars & backing vocals), Dlore (‘House That Ain’t A Home’ single ft. Maya Law & Galli - production, guitar & vocals) and Leo Lore (‘Sorrows Golden’ single - guitar composition and arrangement, keyboards & synths), incorporating classical, jazz & urban music, electronics and scores. Other works includes: a 4-month collaboration with Falmouth dance group ‘Company Nexus’, to create soundscape and composition that works intrinsically with movement for live performance; original score & sound design for ‘FCR Music Presents: Women & The Creative Industry’, and recording and producing my own 10-month album project ‘AHLKE’, released on my label FCR Music in 2019, involving the likes of session musicians Taz Modi (Submotion Orchestra, Matthew Halsal) and Simon Beddoe (Submotion Orchestra, Abstract Orchestra) and mix engineer, Dom Howard (Submotion Orchestra, Ruckspin, Anchorsong). I am currently in the process of recording and producing a new solo EP under my own name, which has been funded by the Help Musicians 'Do it Differently' Fund, due to be released in 2021.

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

Flute lessons for all the levels and ages. Solfège lessons also possible.
I'm a flutist who just ended the Master in Antwerp Conservatory obtaining high distinction result and I have experience on teaching flute from debutants (children or adults) until preparing audition for students who want to enter a conservatory. I also have experience on teaching solfège and for people interested on starting music (both flute and music theory). I can combine everything in one lesson. Nowadays, I'm studying the master pedagogic in Liege Conservatory I enjoy playing the flute together with the students and for debutants, as I also play the guitar, I can accompany them.

Learn to play Electric or Acoustic guitar in any style
I teach electric and acoustic guitar in many guitar based genres of music, including every type of rock music and pop music, blues and funk, etc. Lessons I offer are tailored to the specific needs and abilities of each individual student. If you are a beginner and don't have all the equipment, don't worry, I own several guitars, two guitar amplifiers and many effect pedals, so even if you don't have all the equipment yourself we can have a fully productive lesson at my home. I have almost 20 years of experience in playing the guitar and great knowledge of the specifics of guitar playing in each individual genre that I am teaching. Whatever you wish to play, you will be able to master during lessons with me.

Personal Music Lessons(guitar, piano) for all ages
Dear prospective student, I offer lessons on classical and acoustic guitar, and on piano! The most important thing for me in my lessons is to give the possibility to my students to find theirselves through music. We will talk about what you like and we will adapt songs and styles to your preferences. It is important to enjoy what you’re learning! Then the lesson becomes more fun! In the lessons we can practice different skills based on what interests you. For example songwriting and improvisation. In this way you can emotionally connect with the material you play and find emotional growth! We can also practice your music theory skills so you know basic rules of music and understand a piece better! Or simply and nicely, play music together and improve your skills on your chosen instrument! If you are interested, contact me and we can set together goals based on your level and achieve great results!

Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.

Guitar lessons + Alternative playing styles and Genres
I am a guitar teacher from Edinburgh, Scotland with a strong focus on developing practical musicianship and enjoyment of playing the guitar. I can help you from the beginner level into finding your own style and relationship to music. The lessons heavily revolve around the musical areas that you are interested in, we will do things like look at your favourite guitarists and songs, breaking them down into their fundamental parts, and developing the class on how to understand what you are playing. I have many years experience playing in live bands and can help you in many ways with developing your playing for groups and performances. I can also help with the recording aspect of playing music, both solo and with groups. Here are some of the genres that I love to teach: Alternative and Classic Rock Air tapping, Opening Tunings Classical and Spanish Classical Heavier and Experimental Genres Ambient and Psychedelic with effects pedals Playing with Fretless/ 7 & 8 string guitar I like our lessons to be structured and goal orientated, we often have an online lesson diary together where I keep notes of everything we are doing in the lessons, where you can add your own notes and things you would like to work on. I find this is very useful to keep you progressing with the guitar at a good pace. Please just ask for more information :)

Lou-Indigo
Guitar / Bass / Ukulele / Theory
The course that I propose is BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH, as well as 2 BOOKS. Age and musical taste are not restrictive when in the program, you can with qualitative daily work (not quantitative) quickly observe your progress. Here the pleasure of playing music is put forward. The kind of music you love most will be the focus of the course, their codes and secrets will be the focus of our study, that's what I want to share with you. We can do technical lessons and simply learn together how to play one or more songs of your choice or mine, enrich your game with this approach and your repertoire! (For example, We can re-arrange the pieces and make them more original by approaching the system (CAGED), and enriching their chords, resulting in new positions, new techniques and new sounds, using arpeggio techniques rather than strumming for 4-chord pieces, voicing and fingerstyle techniques, in short, expanding the instrument's playing fields and playing skills to keep progressing in your game and improve your rehearsals ...) If you make a request, this program is obviously accompanied by the pleasure of learning more in theory and being able to directly apply new knowledge on its instrument and identify its common or rare use in the pieces discussed in class. In this case, the theory is translated to be accessible to anyone, both for those who are connoisseurs and for those who discover everything from absolute zero. The exercises, songs, and theoretical explanations offered throughout the program are organized in an order of progressive difficulty. I wrote and produced 2 books of my method to learn the guitar and the music, that I sell to accompany my course and your apprenticeship in the best conditions and so that you can continue the course even at home and to review etc ... . There is ONE BOOK OF COURSES containing all the theoretical and practical program of the year, as well as a BOOK OF EXERCISE on the ranges and the modes that you can obtain directly. You can find here an indicative list of objectives that I propose in my theoretical program, which can of course adapt to your request. The general theoretical objectives of the course: --- Tuning / tuning and knowing his guitar: * Standard Tuning * Drop Tuning * Open Tuning * Adjust the optimal tension of the strings * Adjust the shaft axis * Adjust the action of the strings * Choose the strings adapted to the style of play / tuning * Change his strings -Know his chords: * Triads: Fundamental State & Inversions * Tetrads: Fundamental State & Inversions * The chord progressions of the Range * Arpeggio techniques (tapping, sweep, 1/2/4 fing.shape, etc ...) --- Know his scales and his modes * The Mode of the Major scale * 3 Modes of the Minor scale: Natural / Melodic / Harmonic * Modes of the Pentatonic range: 5 positions * Modes of the Blues range: 5 positions Etc ... --- Technique to the Pick / Plectrum / Tab / Pick (Electric Guitar): * Alternate Picking * Fast Picking / Tremolo Picking * Hybrid Picking * Palm Mute * Natural Harmonics * Pinch Harmonics * Artificial Harmonics * Shredding * Tapping * Sweep Picking * Legato Picking --- Strumming / Hand Picking (Acoustic Guitar) * "SnareDrum" percussion on the guitar * Arpeggios pinched with 4 fingers + thumb * Rasgueado (Flamenco Technique) * Generic Strumming * Fingerstyle Picking * Two-finger picking + Legato for fast melodies (eg a solo) -Play the metronome * exercises on click * practice on song riffs -Learn his favorite songs * without thinking about the difficulty, nothing is impossible with the right methodology -Improvise * choose ranges and positions * to place oneself rhythmically, to finish on the judicious notes -Theory of Harmony * Understand harmonization and its practice -Theory on the Melody -Theory of Rhythm
