About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Guitarist for over 20 years, I teach guitar in various styles (jazz, rock, funk, blues, fingerpicking, bossa nova ...).

The children's lessons are based on the Arc-en-Sons method, allowing to start the guitar from 4 years old. The learning is based on the senses of the child (hearing, sight, touch), play and singing. Once acquired the technical subtleties of the instrument, this method opens to any form of teaching of the guitar, classical or other. We learn music theory directly on the instrument and melodies known on tablatures.

For teenagers and adults the courses include:

- reading notes

- Learning chords and application on known songs.

- mediator and finger play technique

- learning improvisation jazz, blues and rock.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I am naturally patient and calm. I currently give classes to 25-30 students aged 4 to 65 years old.
My method is not fixed and adapts to the objectives and level of each. Depending on the musical tastes, I work pieces of progressive difficulty by discovering or deepening certain techniques specific to particular guitar styles (jazz, blues, classical, bossa nova, ...). In class, theory can precede practice, accompany it or follow it.
My greatest satisfaction: to see progress.

Lou-Indigo
Loukelele Music Academy: Guitar / Bass / Ukulele / Theorie
Promo REGISTRATIONS JANUARY 2019 OPEN !!! The course I propose is BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH, with a program adaptable to your desires / needs with the COURSE BOOK that I wrote and produced especially for my students. Age is therefore not restrictive when you will be able to work with qualitative (and non-quantitative) daily work in order to quickly observe your progress and not to fall into the frustration of a quest towards an absolute that seems vain and time-consuming. Here the pleasure of playing music is put forward. This is of course accompanied by the pleasure of learning more in theory and being able to directly apply his new knowledge on his instrument and identify its common or rare use in the pieces discussed in class. Music theory is popularized to be accessible to anyone, both for those who are connoisseurs and for those who discover everything from absolute zero. The exercises, songs and theoretical explanations offered throughout the program are therefore in an order of progressive difficulty. The course is given with sheets that I provide for each information, range, songs, grids of chords, formulas of compositions, etc ... It can sometimes be accompanied by videos made during the course, tutorial videos posted on youtube, etc ... There is now a LOUKELELE MUSIC ACADEMY COURSE BOOK incorporating the entire program of the year. The kind of music you love most will be the focus of the course, although I am more oriented in terms of metal / rock music and classical music in my style of play, I am a versatile ear and who appreciates a lot of very different things (even contradictory). The writing of music and music theory are also two areas in which I am in my element and which allow me to travel transversally in music genres as different and varied as they are and to understand them, to learn them and therefore to 'retransmit their codes and secrets. You can play a guitar that I made available for the course, and you can also bring your own if you prefer. For bondage lovers the course can be given for 7-string / 8-string guitars. To finish I would like to add more personal that I am professional, dedicated to my profession of musician and teacher, I am always available to answer via message, mails, short videos or even for the following course, to students who contact me outside the class for a reminder or advice on a notion approached in theory or a difficulty encountered in a piece :) /! \ CANCELLATIONS-REFUNDS-CONDITIONS /! \ For parents who want to put their children to music to occupy them: I advise you to make sure that the motivation comes from your child in the first place! I happened to be confronted with children who did not really want to take these courses and so I had to stop because lack of motivation of the child and boredom very visible! If for any reason (on my side or yours) the classes are not given any more than you paid for several lessons in advance, THE DIFFERENCE WILL BE REIMBURSED BY APPRENTUS, who stores the money and gives me pay per course (which you confirm). So no worries on that side! If we do not finish all the courses you have ordered, the courses will be refunded BY THE SITE! Thank you for your reading and your interest if you have read so far. You can find here an indicative list of objectives that I propose in my program, which can of course adapt to your request. The general objectives of the course: --- Tuning / tuning and knowing his guitar: * Standard Tuning * Drop Tuning * Open Tuning * Adjust the optimal tension of the strings * Adjust the axis of the handle * Adjust the action of the strings * Choose the strings adapted to the style of play / tuning * Change his strings --- Understand / Modulate / Choose the Sounds of an Amp / Effect Pedal: *Volume * Gain (Low / High) * Treble * Middle * Bass *Presence * Delay * Reverb *Chorus * NoiseSuppressor / NoiseGate * Wah * Octaver * Harmonizer * Etc ... -Know his chords: --- Know his scales and his modes * The Major Mode (7notes) * 3 Minor Modes (7 notes): Natural / Melodic / Harmonic * 2 Pentatonic Modes (5notes): Major / Minor * Blues Mode (6 notes): Minor Pentatonic + The "Blue Note" * 2 Modes of Triads (3notes): Major / Minor * 2 Triad Modes Seventh (4notes): Shift + 7th / Min + 7th * Phrygian and Phrygian Dominant Mode * Hungarian Fashion Etc ... --- Techniques to the Pick / Plectrum / Tab / Pick (Electric Guitar): * Alternate Picking * Fast Picking / Tremolo Picking * Hybrid Picking * Palm Mute * Natural Harmonics * Pinch Harmonics * Artificial Harmonics * Shredding * Tapping * Sweep Picking * Legato Picking --- Strumming / Hand Picking (Acoustic Guitar) * "SnareDrum" percussion on the guitar * Arpeggios pinched with 4 fingers + thumb * Rasgueado (Flamenco Technique) * Generic Strumming * Fingerstyle Picking * Two-finger picking + Legato for fast melodies (eg a solo) -Play the metronome -Learn his favorite songs -Improvise solos - Understand and know the music theory -Theory of Harmony -Theory on the Melody -Theory on Rhythm

Multi-instrumental artist and student in movement and gesture theater, I offer beginner and intermediate guitar lessons in Saint-Gilles and its surroundings. These courses are open to children (from 8 years old), to teenagers and adults. They are adapted and personalized according to the aptitudes and tastes of each student. They can be done with or without learning music theory, and take place at my place of work or at home. Regarding my experience, I practice the guitar for over nine years and has been teaching for almost five years. In parallel to my learning of the accordion, I learned the guitar in self-taught through the books and various songs and pop, rock, blues and metal. I then turned to variety, gipsy, reggae, jazz and world music. I have gradually developed a pedagogy that adapts to everyone and aims to give you the keys to autonomy (which will allow you to practice and progress on your own). It also aims the development of the musical ear and the opening to different musical styles. COURSE CONTENT: Beginner : - Anatomy of the guitar - Tuning - International tablature, chart and encryption - Basic ranges and chords - Rhythmic - Arpeggios and accompaniments Intermediate: - Agreements barred - Specific rhythmics (reggae, flamenco, etc.) - Specific techniques (hammer-on / pull-off, palm-mute, slap, harmonics, slide, tapping, percussive guitar, etc.) On demand : - Musical culture - Bases of creation / musical composition A musical kiss!
