Private course of Piano/Composition/Computer Music with AppMuse

< Learning to play the piano is not learning to play the piano >

Before you start learning the piano, you should know that:
-''What we really want to learn is "music", not "piano".''
The purpose of learning any instrument is to learn to use the language of "music" so that we can use it to express ourselves and enjoy ourselves with others. We play the piano to make beautiful music, not to make our hands fast or our fingers strong ( That is the job of gym.).

< Course content >
Actually, I prefer calling my course " Music Counselling " because we will not only discuss " piano performance ", but also music theory, music history, instrument structure, piano playing ergonomy, composers' style study, harmony, composition, arrangement, recording, computer music, MIDI, sound physics. . and all sorts of other topics that professional musicians should know about, but for now, for not confusing you, I will simply call our classes "piano lessons".

< Duration >
For each course, I will schedule at least 70 minutes for you, including 60 minutes for the course, plus 10 minutes for discussion and questions (so that your course isn't rushed by the next student).
I hope our courses will give you enough time to solve your piano and music problems.

< Recording >
I highly encourage and help my students to record. This gives you an objective standard to review what you have done. In my 9 years music teaching experience, it is often that a student is already playing some parts very well, but because there is no objective standard to compare, they feel they could be better, but don't know how to make it better. It's easy to get tired and bored when one is practicing without a clear goal.
Comparing your recordings with those you like on YouTube or Spotify can help you to identify yourself a lot.

If you have a digital piano, for each session we can produce your music video as a result of your effort.

When I have a new student, I spend time understanding his or her current level and discussing his or her study plan in details. My student is fairly free to select their own themes, repertoires, and study progress.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have 9 years of experience giving piano lessons, and have come up with some strategies for different types of students.

Are you a beginner? Are you afraid to enter the piano world?
I offer you "flexible" songs for you, with simple harmony, maybe pop or classic. In this type, I would tell you how you can know and play as you really want, that means, as you are a composer of this piece. Either you're a child or you're an adult, it's a chance to find out how you'll be in music. If the composer chose 1-6-2-5 progressions rather than 1-4-5-1, what does he mean and how are you going to interpret?

Have you played some time yet but still want to go further? Either the conservatory does not satisfy you enough, or does your teacher only tell you abstracts? When I was in the conservatory, very often, I heard that teachers say '' it's not music '' '' we have to sing '' but without clear explanations, without '' why ''. I have always thought, if you meet a doctor and ask him how to do it, he tells you that '' you must feel it '' '' you will find it '', you will stay with this doctor will look for others?
For this guy, I like to introduce you to the possibilities of your pieces that you have played by time or why composers score like that. I always recommend, give composers a chance. I will explain why composers write them, with harmony (for example, chopin as master), equivalence between melody and harmony (Bach is genius in the case), use of bass (Beethoven), interpretation of epochs, yes, every era has its usual, for example, jazz swing, the way to crescendo immediately shows in the end during classical, but gradually during post-romantic, it can reopen your eyes to Rachmaninov, Beethoven and Bach.

Do you already have many experiences but want to go more or produce your soundtracks?
In the case, how I am also conductor, composer and I make digital music. I can also show you some techniques that maybe you need in 2019. With DAW as Logic Pro X, either your tracks, Beethoven or Mozart Chopin Liszt ... or jazz.

Mario
Piano lessons for all levels and all ages
I teach Classical Piano, Jazz, Pop, Variety, Rock, Solfege and Harmony, for beginners or for more advanced levels and for all ages (children, teenagers, adults). I also work with the singers who need to learn the chords and general bases of Harmony applied to the Piano.

Bastien
Harmony and Classical Writing
This applied music theory course is for any passionate musician, regardless of level. It aims to broaden his musical knowledge and abilities by understanding music as a whole. The goal is to be able to decode and understand how a music (not only of classical style, but also pop, jazz, rock, electro, ...) was composed, and to be able to use interesting harmonies oneself. and solid in a personal composition / production. It is made up of two main topics: * Harmony (building chords, understanding chord diagrams, learning to Harmonize a given melody, the possibility or not of using these Harmonies in a given style, etc.). But also understand the key, how to build a scale, how to navigate between different keys, how to transform a classic chord suite into another style? Harmony is a course open to all and all levels, no prerequisites to have. Any passionate musician will find interest in it, that's guaranteed. * Writing is a much more targeted course, which is already an introduction to classical composition. In this branch, we will develop the rules of classical writing (parallel fifths and octaves, false relations etc, ...) within the framework of an exercise based on a given melody or bass (in the first case it will be necessary to invent harmonization and compose a bass, in the second, it will be necessary to invent the harmonization and the melody). This course can also be used by academy or conservatory students who wish to prepare for the writing exam, or simply to deepen their knowledge.

Guy
Cours de musique (formation musicale, harmonie classique jazz et pop/rock, histoire de la musique)
(FR au dessous) Music is universal. It's a truth we accepted, but we don't figure out how far it can go. After years of studying and professional activity linked to music, I discovered that the limits among different music genres is a mirage: there are more things in common between hip-hop, for example, and classical music than differences. That's why I offer lessons of harmony, music structure and forms and composition adapted to any concerns and interests. All levels. All ages. - (FR) La musique est universelle. C'est une vérité qu'on accepte, mais on ne peut pas s'imaginer jusqu'a quel point elle l'est. Après des années d'études et d'activité professionnelle dans la musique (classique, avantgarde et jazz) j'ai découvert que les limites entre les différents styles de musique ne sont qu'un mirage: Il y a beaucoup plus de ressemblances entre le hip-hop et la musique classique que de différences. C'est pour cela que j'offre des cours d'harmonie, structure et composition de musique pour tous les niveaux et complètement adaptées aux inquiétudes de l'élève. Si vous cherchez à avoir une visión unifié de la musique et comment être versatile en plusieurs styles, ne doutez pas à me contacter.

I can learn to read and write music, have notions of music theory, play classical music, songs, movie music, ...

Sara
Piano lessons given by concert pianist with four postgraduate diplomas
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 many years of experience in teaching at different levels and aspirations of students, 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 while getting to know basis of classical harmony. 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 degree, as well as two different Postgraduate degrees and two different Concert musician diplomas in special program for gifted concert artists at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.
