Conservatory student gives lessons in guitar, music theory and musical composition (all styles)

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Graduated from a license in musicology, I am currently pursuing my graduate studies at the conservatory in the scholarly disciplines of composition, analysis, writing, musical arrangement as well as Jazz.
I have been playing guitar for many, many years now, as well as piano and flute.

I have been giving guitar and music education lessons to children and teenagers for four years now.
I also have a very good level in music theory, writing (jazz and classical), harmony as well as musical composition.
My classes are based on listening as well as the development of the musical ear and musical creativity. I try to transmit my passion for music by making my students discover very varied horizons, from jazz to classical music, including current music and so-called traditional music.
I also seek to develop autonomy in my students, an essential quality in order to flourish both musically and in everyday life. This is why I insist on the knowledge of the instrument and the development of creativity through the teaching of applied music theory and the development of the ear.

My course is aimed at both beginners and people of an intermediate or advanced level who would like to improve their skills.
If you are looking for a teacher who is both an educator and attentive to your personal musicality, do not hesitate to contact me.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
My name is Damien, 22 years old, and in parallel with my student activity, I have been giving music lessons to children, adolescents and adults for several years. Truly versatile, I am able to adapt to the needs and personality of my students. Indeed, I base my teaching of the guitar and of music in general on the development of the creativity and the musical ear of my students. In my opinion, the most important thing is to instill in my students autonomy and a passion for music. Too often, in traditional education, teachers prefer the mechanical work of the instrument to the development of creativity and the musical ear of the student. Thus, I will constantly seek to introduce new music to my students, whether it is Jazz, rock and pop, the vast world of "classical" music or even non-European music.

Although the technical work of the instrument is essential, the development of a sense of creativity and a personal musical curiosity is too often overlooked. Music, above all else, should be a source of wonder, sharing and personal enrichment for the student. This is how my teaching revolves around the development of the ear (especially through singing), the practice of improvisation in order to free the imagination, and the learning of the basics of harmony and music theory in order to allow my students, even the youngest, to be able to create their own pieces and to navigate as they wish in this vast ocean that is music.

Whether, whether you are a parent and you are looking to help your children develop through the practice of music, or an adult in search of new knowledge, my teaching seems ideal to help you.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Regarding my student and professional career, I hold a license in musicology, ethnomusicology course (study and practice of extra-European music) obtained at the University of Paris 8 of Saint-Denis.

I am currently studying composition (for orchestra, small instrumental ensembles), baroque, classical and modern writing, analysis as well as jazz, simultaneously at the conservatory of Gennevilliers and at the conservatory of the 1st arrondissement.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been practicing the guitar as well as the piano, alone or in a group, since my teenage years. In addition to that, I have been playing the transverse flute in various jazz groups for four years now. A large part of my musical practice revolves around the Gamelan Balinais, a group with which we performed in the large Pierre Boulez hall of the Philarmonie de Paris on October 2, 2021 as part of the Nuit Blanche.

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.

Cours de guitare sur-mesure pour tous les niveaux.
Je suis le guitariste du chanteur Guillaume Grand, de Klingande et bien d'autres. Je compose et j’enregistre pour Chloé, Pal Zileri et beaucoup d'autres marques. Quand je ne suis pas en tournée ou en studio, ma passion est d’enseigner la musique et de partager mon expérience avec les autres. Je suis un musicien suédois vivant à Paris depuis 5 ans actuellement. Je parle anglais couramment. Je parle un peu français et si vous me permettez de faire quelques erreurs, je peux également donner des cours en français. Mon objectif lorsque j’enseigne est de personnaliser au maximum mes leçons pour vous. J’évite les cours standardisés pour ne pas vous démotiver. Je veux vous aider à trouver la meilleure façon d'obtenir les résultats que vous souhaitez. Je fais beaucoup de tournées et d’enregistrements, mais j’essaie de continuer à enseigner la musique car j’aime ça. J'ai de l'expérience avec des étudiants âgés de 12 à 71 ans. Je peux donner des cours autant à des débutants qu’à des guitaristes expérimentés. Je travaille souvent en studio et je fais beaucoup de tournées, ce qui me donne une expérience bien plus concrète du milieu de la musique par rapport aux professeurs diplômés qui ne connaissent que l’enseignement. J’ai un home studio de qualité professionelle et je propose également des cours d'enregistrement de guitare et de voix. Je propose aussi l’enregistrement de pistes sur lesquelles vous pouvez vous entraîner chez vous. Je travaille principalement sur Pro Tools et Ableton Live. Mes registres principaux sont la pop, le rock, la folk, l´électro, le blues, etc. (moins le jazz, le classique et le latino).

Composition and Mao lessons by a composer (CNSMDP and IRCAM graduate) and professor of international experience.
Hello! I offer composition lessons, Mao and other disciplines (harmony, orchestration, musical theory, etc.) for all levels, and according to a method similar to that of the conservatory. Always oriented towards musical practice, together we will refine the strategy that suits you best. What I like most about individual lessons is to adapt the course to the needs of the student, like the teachers who marked my training. I believe that a student's progress depends a lot on his teacher. For this reason, I always give them the best of myself. Punctual and patient I think I have the facilities to transmit my know-how and above all I have the desire, the motivation and the pleasure to teach my passion. For students who wish, preparation for an internationally renowned diploma (such as the ABRSM, or other) is offered, depending on the level.

Piano/Keyboard Lessons (Music Theory, Aural Training, Sight Reading, Composition and Performance)
Music is a globally recognised form of expression that connects everyone of us in one way or the other. As a musician, I have tried to inspire people from different walks of life to feel the joy and love for playing the piano and creating music. I have composed music for multiple bands, have played for choirs and have accompanied many influential artists. I cleared the Grade 8 examination from Trinity College of Music, London in piano performance. My main goal as a music teacher is not just to provide training and lessons, but to inspire students to continue to learn and gain skills on their own and master the art of music composition. Classes can be provided at the student's residence and my classes will include a combination of aural training, sight reading and training in performance and composition (based on the student's level).

Creative Music Expression - Understanding Music
Would you like to approach the creative writing of music? Would you like to fully understand the languages and the way music works? Can I help you! Like any form of creative expression, music has its rules, rooted in perception and in the context around us. We can work on fundamental concepts of musical expression, valid in all genres and also immerse ourselves in the area that interests you most (baroque, classical, pop, jazz ...) My course has a non-academic approach and it is open to all: whether you are professionals who want to deepen their musical knowledge, or you are amateurs or beginners we can build the perfect course for you and that will allow you to express yourself or simply to better understand the music you are listening to. The only thing I highly recommend is knowing how to read music, because it allows us to go much faster. If you are not able, we can start there.
