Improvisation lessons for adults in a supportive atmosphere.

Does the thought of improvising frighten the life out of you?
Look no further.
I teach in a friendly, supportive and warm-hearted way. We start simply and easily, with various games and exercises. Sometimes we use sheet music, sometimes not.
I always try to draw on your strengths. Strengths that you may not even know you have.
My specialism is working with instrumentalists.
I have professional experience as a clarinet player, improviser and composer, in the UK and Belgium, and as a tutor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London.
I really look forward to helping you embark on a new musical journey.

Learn to play fast. Dynamic guitar lessons, and music theory. In English and Spanish
Music is a dynamic art, and is my believe that it is how it should be taught. Practice is as necessary and important as theory, and sometimes even more. Beginner students start playing guitar within the first month, and not long after that they are able to compose their own music. My purpose is that the student open all the possibilities this instrument offers, and not just learn to play 3 chords; in music everything is possible when you know how and when to do it. La música es un arte dinámica, y por ende es así como me gusta enseñarla. La practica es igual de necesaria e importante que la teoría, a veces hasta más. En mi curso el estudiante puede tocar desde las primeras clases, y en un punto no muy lejano componer su propia música. En cuanto a guitarra, mi propósito es que el estudiante se abra a todas las posibilidades que este instrumento ofrece, no solo a tocar 3 acordes; dentro la música todo es posible, todo lo puedes hacer siempre y cuando sepas como y cuando hacerlo.

Songwriting workshop: get your ideas together in a great song
Inspiration is very punctual and cannot come on demand. However, several keys exist to help you build something from your ideas. Together, we will review the steps to get your melody-lyrics-pattern ideas into a well constructed song. Firstly, we will work on the very essence of the song which is the "chords and voice", and once we got it, we will dig more into arrangements; how to give the structure more originality, what part will the drums play, what vocal harmony would fit on the chorus...

Piano lessons, composition, and MAO, home-based individuals
Hello, I am a pianist and composer. I offer private lessons piano and composition and MAO at home. I have 7 years of experience giving piano lessons, and I have proposed 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 want, it 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 has chosen 1-6-2-5 progressions rather than 1-4-5-1, what does he mean and how are you going to interpret it? 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 you should do, he tells you that '' you must feel it '' '' you will find it '', will you stay with this doctor looking for another? 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, swing of jazz, the way to crescendo immediately shows at the end during classic, but gradually during post-romantic, it can reopen your eyes to Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Bach. Do you have a lot of experiences but you want to go further or produce your soundtracks? In this case, as I am also conductor, composer and I also do 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. Language: French, English and Chinese If you are interested, it is with pleasure to give you lessons at home. I thank you for your reading. App
