Great teacher, nice environment. Recommend it!
With today's computers it's now possible to create radio ready music with just a laptop and a pair of speakers. I've worked in the music industry for 20 years in every role from writer to performer to producer to mixing and mastering alongside legends such as Duran Duran, Charlie Puth and Chic and now I can bring my experience to you! I will show you every step of creating a song from coming up with an idea to playing it, recording, mixing it and getting it ready for release. Even if you can't play an instrument or know nothing about music I can give you the tools to make your own music and express yourself through sound. Playing an instrument is not required if you want to make electronic music but I can teach you the fundamentals of guitar, piano, bass, drums and singing and unlock the secrets of music making in a fun and easy way. It's totally up to you. We're going to find YOUR path to becoming the best musician you can be. Music should bring joy first and foremost and everyone is welcome from beginners to experienced musicians. I will make you laugh and smile and help you find talents you never knew you had. You have a choice of learning Ableton Live, Logic or Pro Tools (or even all three!)

Through a tailor-made course adapted to everyone's needs, discover, learn and master the different rhythmic techniques and make your drums an instrument without limits, thanks to the power of your imagination. Together, we will work as needed, directly on enriching your game, but also on learning technical processes allowing you access to new horizons. Passionate and determined, I help you progress at your own pace by offering you the keys to achieving your goals, whatever your starting level. After studying musicology at the University of Tours (specialty in jazz & contemporary music), in a jazz school and at the conservatory, I worked as a music teacher then artistic director and beatmaker. This allowed me to explore many genres from rap to electro through jazz and classical or even pop. Whatever your style, universe or ambition, let's create together the environment allowing you to progress as serenely as possible. PS: I stay out of class always available and reachable for each of you. Whatever the problem you encounter (technical problem, advice for the purchase of equipment, etc.).

I try to make my students independent, help them develop their listening skills, their sense of rhythm and transmit to them an efficient working method.

Hello everyone! My name is Sacha, I am a 28-year-old drummer, endorsed by Soultone Cymbals, and I give lessons in Paris at home or in the HF Studios in the 9th or 14th during which I accompany my students on bass . I started the drums at the Dante Agostini school where I went up to the upper level and I was also a student at the Conservatory of the 7th arrondissement in the third cycle of jazz drums. I am a member of the group Abrahma with stoner, psyche and metal influences with which I am often on tour. We are also scheduled for HELLFEST and MOTOCULTOR 2021. I am also a member of the group SWEAT AND TEARS with which I play at the Guinness Tavern in Châtelet about twice a month. However my musical tastes are quite diverse but centered first around Funk-Rock with the Red Hot Chili Peppers as flagship group as well as Extreme, Rage Against The Machine, System of a Down, Soundgarden, Audioslave for the rock side. I am also a big fan of Groove in the broad sense with artists like Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Jamiroquai, Incognito

• Conservatory graduate and gold medalist at Dante Agostini School. Today, I pass on my knowledge in a particular lesson without age, level or musical aesthetics (you can bring your own songs). • When I teach what matters to me is to nurture a common passion, to see students happy with their success and happy with their progress. As and when they become confident and relaxed. • My experience of the stage will open you to the art of accompanying a band and putting themselves forward. • Classes take place in the Marshland school (near the Republique metro) equipped with all the equipment to have fun (acoustic drums, bass and / or guitar to play together, support and learning software. .)

Curriculum vitae My various professional experiences in different professions of music (sound engineer, performer, composer ..), on stage or in studio, allow me to approach differently the pedagogy of the instrument and to bring you a more complete teaching.

Francisco
Drums
During my years of experience as a teacher, I developed different methods and exercises to teach drumming and music from beginners to advanced students. more important in my function is to have the ability to adapt since each student needs an individual and specific approach. Thus, although my teaching method is based on standardized concepts and exercises, the most important thing is to adapt to each student. I think the main interest is that the students can find the motivation to practice the instrument since the true learning is built by oneself. In this end, the most common is to use the songs chosen by the student and from this point of departure, to highlight the concepts that must be acquired.When it involves students of more advanced levels, I try to focus the teaching on a goal given together.

Aurel
Drum lessons with qualified and experienced teacher - all styles, all levels
Hello! My name is Aurel and I am a French Amsterdam-based drummer. Although currently specialized in Jazz music, I have studied various esthetics, and Pop and Rock music, in particular, are part of my background (I played in several pop-rock bands). Therefore I am able to teach a broad panel of music styles. I also have many drum methods and charts at my disposal, and have experience in teaching children from the age of 6, as well as teenagers and adults. Lessons and teaching method: I always adapt to the student's tastes and learning profiles. This is why, during the first lesson, and on a regular basis afterwards, I always take time to discuss with my students (or their parents if they are very young) to figure out together the path they want or need to follow. I will use charts and methods for those who need visual support to assimilate the skills or teach by ear and by demonstrating to the ones who feel more comfortable this way. I also play electric guitar and can jam with my students, which is a great tool for developing band playing skills or simply to have a good time. For those eager to make significant progress, I offer consistent and serious monitoring, with practice recommendations. I can for instance prepare a student for an audition or an entrance exam in a conservatory. If you are willing to improve your understanding of rhythm in general, you can also benefit from my knowledge of Indian Karnatic rhythm concepts, one of the most complete traditional approaches to rhythm. Students who simply want to learn at their pace, to have fun and unwind, are definitely welcome too! About me: In addition to my jazz drums bachelor and master degrees from the conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA), which included a thorough pedagogical training and a specialization in Indian Karnatic techniques, I benefit from 4 years of experience as an employed drum teacher in two French associative music schools (Ecole de musique de Nangis and Conservatoire des Deux Rives, Moret-sur-Loing). I am also an active musician, both on the Dutch and the French scene. My trio mainly tours in France and has played at venues such as the Sunside (Paris), or participated in competitions like the Keep An Eye International Jazz Award. I am also the co-leader of the sextet Chai Masters, finalist of several European competitions (Leiden Jazz Award, Golden Jazz Trophy in Lille, France, 7 Virtual Jazz Contest). Recently, the band was part of Keep An Eye The Records's finalists (March 2022). Looking forward to meeting you and passing on my know-how to you!
