About Me

Hi, my name is Dave. I'm a Musician, Composer, Guitar, Piano & Bass tutor with over 15 years of experience. After receiving a degree in Jazz and Contemporary Music, I was privileged to enjoy a fruitful career not only as a music teacher but also as a full-time composer and performer, both live and in the studio.

Music which I composed, performed and recorded was screened in over 25 film festivals worldwide. One of my films, called “Crumble”, is starring Amanda Hale and was selected for BAFTA, won the Silver Remi Award at the 50th Worldfest Houston Film Festival (USA) and was the Official Selection of the 17th East End Film Festival (London).

Among many other things, I also composed and produced music for Patreon sponsored gaming-series “Cool Ghosts”, Tesco Promotional campaign and the album “Warped Tension”, published by Evolution Media (i.a. Film4/ESPN/EMI).

Composing for Films

Performing Live

Performing in the Studio

My musical journey began with playing guitar in local rock bands as a teenager. While starting out with fairly simple pop/rock songs, I slowly gravitated towards more progressive genres that allowed the fusion of my many musical influences, ranging from chamber music to hard rock, electronic and trip-hop.

Following my graduation from the Jerusalem Academy, where I received a degree in jazz and contemporary music, I became head of the Guitar department in the municipal conservatory of Ashkelon city.
There, among daily teaching duties, I would start writing orchestral arrangements for the annual graduation concerts.

At the age of 26, I formed an alternative band called Laid8, along with which I was lucky enough to participate in many music festivals around the world and record three releases.

Lead single “Flush” from our debut album “These Faded Lines” gathered considerable radio airplay, which led to a deal with Kent-based management agency Factory Music ltd.

Around that time, I was also approached with a request to help to finalize the musical accompaniment in a couple of theater plays. That experience was so rewarding and refreshing that I started to explore scoring further, subsequently composing for many other productions outside of theater while combining traditional acoustic instruments with modern cutting-edge programming and synthesis.

Classical Guitar Performance (for beginners and advanced)
I teach classical guitar up to grade 7. The purpose of this course is to bring students closer to a conservatory experience, where learning is not limited to "how-to" tutorials and lectures. Through a series of lessons customised according to your needs, assignments, and working with me on tasks, you will develop a great load of skills in classical guitar performance as well as a deep understanding of the classical guitar repertoire. I focus on the western classical guitar repertoire from Renaissance to the 21st century (for example works of Dowland, Narvaez, Bach, Giuliani, Scarlatti, Carcassi, Tarrega, Villa-Lobos, Brouwer, Koshkin etc). Not only will we focus on the technical aspects of playing the guitar, but we will also analyse and use tools of music theory in order for you to deeply understand and be able to demonstrate your personal character in your performance.

I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. Having 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. I am currently pursuing my third degree (Postgraduate Concertsoloist) at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, and have obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions.

Sara
A concert pianist and PhD student giving piano lessons
Being naturally very skilled in sight-reading of music scores, I've realized numerous times how helpful and enjoyable can be to posses that "gift". Now, after being professor to many student of different level and aspiration, I can surely say that, despite their different ambitions in playing piano, all of them were very keen in learning how to be better in reading completely new and unknown music to them. Currently, I'm developing an approach which could efficiently help one in understanding better the composition seen for the first time, through "scanning" analysis and use of logical patterns. I'm a concert pianist with rich performing experience on worldwide stages, 1st prize winner of more then 30 international piano competitions in Europe and USA, holding Master and Postgraduate degree, currently finishing PhD and program for Concert musician at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.

Guitar lessons at your home or online through skype/zoom
Do you have a guitar that feels lonely in your home ? Would like to be able to play some beautiful guitar music? If so, my goal is to give you everything you need to become an autonomous musician : technical skills, understanding of music theory, sight-reading (nothing to be afraid of!), and development of your very own musical sensibility - all while enjoying yourself. I'm a diplomed classical guitar teacher in France, finished a Performance Master in Basel Musik Akademie and am now pursuing a Music Pedagogy Master. My greatest joys are to perform and to teach, and generally speaking sharing my love for my instrument. I have 8 years experience in teaching and always strive to find better strategies and most adapted methods for every pupil that I meet, from 6 to 70+ years old. ===NEW ONLINE FORMULA=== With the lockdown situation, I now offer two different possibilites : - live video lessons, charged at the hour like an usual face-to-face lesson, at the frequency you choose ; - You send me as many videos and questions that you like; I answer under 24 hours with either text, scores and PDF material, video or audio recording, with the feedback and assignments you need, plus one check-in live 30 minutes call every two weeks, if you wish to. That's the good option if you like working by yourself on your own time, don't want to add appointments in your week, and want to get a lot of value. If you're interested in starting online classical guitar lessons with me, please send me a message so we can discuss which option would fit you best! I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time.

Matt
Apprendre à jouer à la guitare acoustique/électrique
Guitar lessons are always useful for all levels of guitar playing. the course content will depend on the level of the student and is entirely open to any preferences in songs or techniques the student wishes to learn. My course is designed in such a way that it focuses on the student's creativity with the guitar and works towards fine tuning what will eventually become the student's original song or composition. I encourage my students to tap into their creativity, since in my experience, I have found that this is where the pleasure and beauty of music tends to surface, when there are the least amount of boundaries possible. All styles of music are welcome!

GUITAR AND / OR ZANGLES - Antwerp and surroundings - private
GUITAR and ZANGLES: For beginners and advanced, young and old. Everyone receives a personal lesson plan and objectives. You don't have to know theory. The lessons take place in a pleasant demo room. At your own pace I will get to know you the guitar and its possibilities so that you can quickly play your favorite songs. If you come to sing, I will lift you to unprecedented heights through my knowledge and years of experience. I like to coach motivated people who can make time to develop musically. I expect commitment and then it can go quickly. Several students of mine are now enjoying some success in the music bizz (not that this should be everyone's goal). Partly because of their perseverance but also because of the training they received. I am a music coach and guide you in a pleasant, successful way through an educational period. If you want more details or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Musical greetings, Danny
