Trusted teacher: I specialized in contemporary music composition in Bucharest, Birmingham and Paris having finished with honors my Bachelor, my Master and my Doctorate degree in this field. I also have a pedagogical degree and 2 years of experience in which I taught music composition, musical forms, poliphony, orchestration, music theory and solfege at the National University of Music from Bucharest. I am now doing a 2nd Master in Film Music Composition at the ZHdK. This class is for both beginners who want to compose music as a hobby and to aspiring professional composers. The main topic of my doctoral thesis was the compositional idea and the processes involved in the creative undertakings. How does one reach the final stage of a composition from just a few ideas? How can we improve this endeavour? What strategies and techniques are needed in order to do that? The class will be customized for each student so in order to achieve a certain objective in music composition the lessons can include elements of music theory, harmony, poliphony, orchestration, improvisation, music notation (Finale) and music production (StudioOne). Although solfege and improvisation are extremely useful (I dare say even indispensable) for a professional composer, they can also be means to an end for passionate music lovers. Solfege and strategies that come with it can help your singing and music sight reading. And improvisation is such a fun and relaxing activity that I think everybody should do it!

I will also show you different approaches to composing that can give you new ideas or are helpful if the writing process gets stuck. We look for inspiration in examples from music and try to explain our theories.

In these 1 on 1 classes we are going to explore the world of playing Low Brass instruments along with the necessary Aural and Theory skill required for each level. First of all, we can arrange a free (online) meeting to meet and discuss with the student what do they want from their lessons and what they want to achieve. Then I tailor the lessons and time to what each student needs. Even though I encourage my students to aim for high quality, the lessons are friendly, approachable and most of all fun. Furthermore I have access to a variety of online sources (repertoire, technique books, etudes etc) and recordings which can make teaching much more effective (especially online). - For beginner levels the goal is to establish some musical awareness and build an all-round technical foundation. - For intermediate levels we can start focusing on music details that will elevate the playing into different contexts. - For higher levels the goal is to refine the playing to the maximum quality possible while obtaining clarity and dexterity I try as much as I can to make the students to have a music opinion and taste for themselves, be their own teacher in a way. As Socrates once said “I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.”

Lou-Indigo - Brussels, Belgium33€
Trusted teacher: The course that I propose is BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH, as well as 2 BOOKS. Age and musical taste are not restrictive when in the program, you can with qualitative daily work (not quantitative) quickly observe your progress. Here the pleasure of playing music is put forward. The kind of music you love most will be the focus of the course, their codes and secrets will be the focus of our study, that's what I want to share with you. We can do technical lessons and simply learn together how to play one or more songs of your choice or mine, enrich your game with this approach and your repertoire! (For example, We can re-arrange the pieces and make them more original by approaching the system (CAGED), and enriching their chords, resulting in new positions, new techniques and new sounds, using arpeggio techniques rather than strumming for 4-chord pieces, voicing and fingerstyle techniques, in short, expanding the instrument's playing fields and playing skills to keep progressing in your game and improve your rehearsals ...) If you make a request, this program is obviously accompanied by the pleasure of learning more in theory and being able to directly apply new knowledge on its instrument and identify its common or rare use in the pieces discussed in class. In this case, the theory is translated 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 organized in an order of progressive difficulty. I wrote and produced 2 books of my method to learn the guitar and the music, that I sell to accompany my course and your apprenticeship in the best conditions and so that you can continue the course even at home and to review etc ... . There is ONE BOOK OF COURSES containing all the theoretical and practical program of the year, as well as a BOOK OF EXERCISE on the ranges and the modes that you can obtain directly.

Trusted teacher: The way I teach actually depends entirely on the student. The way I explain the concepts, plan and structure the lessons and approach each subject all depends on whether the student is a beginner, intermediate or advanced, and whether he or she has some experience on the subject. Each student has different needs and different abilities. It's just a matter of getting to know the student, in order to identify both the weaknesses and strengths on which to work.

Trusted teacher: I have been giving private music lessons and fortepiano for a long time. In addition to my classical music education in 2000, I obtained my bachelor's degree in psychopedagogy in 2006. This year I am interested in expanding my practice to include more students with special needs. I learned about the different ways music can help students with special needs. It helps them express their emotions and develop their memories and self-regulatory skills. It can show them strengths that they might not otherwise find during their school day. It can also open their eyes to a whole world of expression and beauty, enriching their lives. I find out what works for a particular student, what distracts them, what motivates them, what helps them focus and sometimes just learn how to relate to them. As a music teacher I enjoy working with the special needs students with autism and visual impairment

Do you dream of creating music that reflects your own style? You're in the right place! With years of experience in music production and self-taught training, I'm here to help you achieve your goals, whether you're a beginner or an advanced level. We'll work on composition, mixing, mastering, sound design, arrangement, live performance, and more! For me, music is a true adventure of research and creation. We build our own sound ecosystem using synthesizers, effects, strategies, and various techniques. But above all, the result depends mainly on the intention we put into it. It's a matter of mood and state of mind. I've had the chance to come into contact with many different musical universes, from metal to electronic music and from hip hop to jazz. I started with electric guitar, then studied for a four-year guitar lutherie diploma. I also taught music in a school before discovering the world of computer-assisted music, which opened up incredible new perspectives for me. Since then, I've done two years of musicology and taken some training at the Fastlane french audionumeric school, where I deepened my knowledge of production, composition, and mixing on a computer. See you soon, Johan
