    Passionate and specialized Electro/House music producer gives courses in MAO, music production and mixing (FL Studio).
    Hello, I have been practicing music production (MAO) for 5 years. During this period I had time to learn, to make mistakes and to perfect myself. I was thus able to acquire the essential things to know about computer-assisted music. It is through my computer music lessons that I will pass on my knowledge to you. I have published several of my productions on YouTube which have garnered several thousand views. I also released a 5 track electronic EP. I master and propose to teach the use of FL Studio as well as Maschine 2. I could teach you and assist you at each stage of musical production (Melodies, sound design, Mixing, Mastering...). I specialized in electronic music (House, Downtempo, Synthwave, EDM...), so I will be better able to help you in this genre. However, do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to learn how to produce other genres, I also have knowledge in typebeat and LO-FI production. I have already had the opportunity to teach several people to produce music. Usually a lesson will go like this: - Chat to find out your musical tastes and learn to talk about "music". - Take a reference piece and dissect it to see the different parts (drums, melodies, Fx, Automation, etc...). - Getting started and using FL Studio and/or Maschine 2 according to your objectives - Course summary and Q&A session. I like to teach my students to produce music because I pass on a passion. My gear: - Speaker: Mackie CR3X - MIDI keyboard: Komplete Kontrol M32 - Drumpad: Maschine Mikro MKIII - Sound card: Komplete Audio 1 - Acoustic and electric guitar: Fender Please don't hesitate if you have any questions. Looking forward to teaching you! About me : My name is Thibaut, I'm 22 years old and I'm currently doing an internship in a music label (Alter K). I am passionate about electronic music production.

    Would you like to approach the creative writing of music? Would you like to fully understand the languages and the way music works? Can I help you! Like any form of creative expression, music has its rules, rooted in perception and in the context around us. We can work on fundamental concepts of musical expression, valid in all genres and also immerse ourselves in the area that interests you most (baroque, classical, pop, jazz ...) My course has a non-academic approach and it is open to all: whether you are professionals who want to deepen their musical knowledge, or you are amateurs or beginners we can build the perfect course for you and that will allow you to express yourself or simply to better understand the music you are listening to. The only thing I highly recommend is knowing how to read music, because it allows us to go much faster. If you are not able, we can start there.

    Graduated from a license in musicology, I am currently pursuing my graduate studies at the conservatory in the scholarly disciplines of composition, analysis, writing, musical arrangement as well as Jazz. I have been playing guitar for many, many years now, as well as piano and flute. I have been giving guitar and music education lessons to children and teenagers for four years now. I also have a very good level in music theory, writing (jazz and classical), harmony as well as musical composition. My classes are based on listening as well as the development of the musical ear and musical creativity. I try to transmit my passion for music by making my students discover very varied horizons, from jazz to classical music, including current music and so-called traditional music. I also seek to develop autonomy in my students, an essential quality in order to flourish both musically and in everyday life. This is why I insist on the knowledge of the instrument and the development of creativity through the teaching of applied music theory and the development of the ear. My course is aimed at both beginners and people of an intermediate or advanced level who would like to improve their skills. If you are looking for a teacher who is both an educator and attentive to your personal musicality, do not hesitate to contact me.

    Creative/Experimental Writing in English (Fiction or Poetry).
    These classes are meant and designed to explore the burgeoning potentials of not just imagination, but also literary flair. The strengths will be stretched to their fullest reach, while the weakness will be worked upon together via different trials and errors. The classes will be tailored according to the needs of the individual, and according to their comfort and concerns. Editing procedures will also be thorough and perfected to produce a completed piece in the end. My tendency is to take up the experimental, self-cognizance, almost self-improvement/exploration methods. I have previously worked with various television production houses as a creative writer, with art galleries as an art critique, and often as an occult culture archivist. I have been published both- for my prose and poetry.

    Zen teaching of lyric or pop singing (vocal technique and interpretation)
    For me, each student is different and deserves a personalized approach. I try above all to put him in confidence so that he progresses serenely and in the pleasure of learning and seeks a language and a mode of operation which corresponds to him. I always start my lessons with a little warm-up before doing technical and musical work on the songs. After a few sessions we establish with the student a "plan of attack" defining the short, medium and long term objectives. More interested in pop than lyric? Not a problem ! I put my knowledge of vocal technique at the service of all styles to help you progress while keeping your voice safe.

So people wanting to approach opera welcome and anyone who wants to improve their techniques (opera or variety) also welcome. Vocalises and songs according to your level and musical desires. For music theory lessons it is really for those who want to fill their gap. In general I always accompany my piano or singing lessons with solfegic notions.

    Voice coaching, understanding your voice and developing a musical ear
    Musician graduated from a school of Jazz and modern music, my goal is to gradually and according to their levels, bring people's curiosity towards music to the desire to better understand, appreciate and master it. Singing is a discipline that requires regular work, to learn to control your breathing, your body and therefore your voice. My goal is to make the student want to stay diligent about his practice without overloading it, and to give him the tools necessary to move forward without him / her losing the pleasure of singing or composing. What interests me in the context of a private lesson is to clarify the student's objectives and to adapt to his personality so that he can relate what he likes to listen to something. accessible for him / her.
