Music on all levels: Bass guitar/Improvisation/Theory/Composition lessons

Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced player trying to expand on very specific topics, I am here to help you become a better musician.
I believe the best way to learn music is to study what you love. Therefore, we will always look together for ways of making the process the most enjoyable and tackle different topics through your favorite artists. The classes can be very structured if that is what you like, or very loose: all that matters is your progress and enjoyment.

Among other things, we can focus on:
-Basic technique on the instrument
-Learning songs of your choice, with a method that will allow you to learn songs by yourself later on.
-Learn about different styles: Pop, Rock, Funk, Soul, Metal, Jazz...
-Develop your understanding of music through the instrument (scales, arpeggios...)
-Creativity, and improvisation through the use of the material we have studied together
-Ear training and music theory
-Rhythm, all the way from basic to very advanced
-Basic compositional techniques, or fun ways to start composing

Extra information

If at my home, I can provide an instrument.
For lessons at the student's house, you need to have an instrument and an amp.

About Me

Hi,

I'm Matteo, an electric bass player, and composer from Brussels, currently based in Amsterdam.
I have been playing bass for the better part of my life, after discovering it by accident when I was 12 (by buying a Motorhead CD...).
After growing up playing Reggae, rock, and metal in various bands, I fell in love with jazz when I was 19, and have been focusing on that since then.
Through the years, this has led me to play in some majors venues and festivals across Europe as well as the USA, with various artists.
I currently play in many bands based in the Netherlands and in Belgium, as well as lead my own project for which I compose and arrange everything.

At the core of it all is a deep love for music, which I want to share with you. I am thankful to the great teachers I have met over the years, and hope I can carry on their work by helping you on your own musical journey.

Music Lessons (Jazz & Modern Guitar, Jazz Music, General Theory, Ear & Rhythmic Training) from a Graduated. Also ONLINE
Jazz & Modern Music Lessons in Amsterdam and ONLINE. Don't wait anymore and start your new hobby! If you’re passionate about music and would like to develop musical skills of your own, I can help. I am a graduate musician who can teach students of all levels. Some topics that I cover are, jazz and modern guitar, music theory, jazz improvisation and theory (any instrument), ear training and jazz/pop/hip-hop composition and arrangement. I can also teach piano for beginners. I cover a range of styles from jazz to other modern styles like Bossa Nova, Samba, Funk, Rock and Groove music. With ten years of experience in studying, practicing and playing, I have come to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is to develop your musical ear. This is done by the process of to transcribing and singing. I believe that music is like speaking a language so I start with teaching you how to connect your voice to your instrument. In accordance with your rhythm in the learning process, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, and how to compose your own melodies and improvise. I was born in 1997 in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain). At the age of 4 I started studying classical guitar at 10 years old I took a keen interest in modern music and jazz. I am currently based in Amsterdam, where I am studying a Masters Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam. Previously I studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), where I completed my bachelor's degree. I have studied and learned from great musicians and teachers such as Jesse van Ruller, Rob Van Bavel, Reinier Baas, Jaume Llombart, Maarten Van Der Grinten, Sanna Van Vilet, Dani Pérez, Eladio Reinón, Joan Monné, Enric Peinado, Albert Bover, David Xirgu, Gonzalo del Val and Santi Careta, among others. During my musical career I have been fortunate enough to play with renowned musicians such as Bill McHenry, Jasper Blom, Fèlix Rossy, Gianni Gagliardi, Jo Krause, Masa Kamaguchi, Horacio Fumero, Aldo Caviglia, Mario Rossy, Sanna Van Vliet, David Xirgu, Eladio Reinon, Rita Payés, Deejay Foster , Benet Palet, Deejay Foster, Julius Gawlik, Deejay Foster, Gonzalo del Val, Ian Cleaver, Txema Riera, Menno Daams, David Lucácks, Fernando Brox, Vicent Pèrez, Santi Colomer Serratosa, Juan Pablo Balcazar, Magalí Datzira and Lucas Martínez. I have participated in masterclasses with international musicians such as Peter Bernstein, Jorge Rossy, Chick Corea, Bob Mintzer, Christian McBride, Kenny Barron, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Gary Burton, Ben Street, Lage Lund, Michael Kanan and Richard Bona. Furthermore, I have had the pleasure of playing at many festivals and clubs in Spain (Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival from Barcelona, ​​​​Festival de Jazz de Terrassa, Luz de Gas, Jamboree, Sala Barts, Auditori, Robadors23, Balius, Música as Parcs , Auditori del Liceu, Cercle del Liceu, Casa de Cultura de Girona, Keyboard Jazz Lounge, Cafè Metropol, Festival Internacional de Dixieland de Tarragona, Traviesa, MArt, Sala Zero, Gira Cicle Andajazz 2018, Clasijazz, CICUS Sevilla, Gran Teatro de Huelva , El Musicario, Rizoma Records), and in the Netherlands (GrachtenFestival, Intercontinental Hotel, NEMO Science, festival Otis Park, Stella by Starlight).

Play only what you like! - Piano lessons for all levels and all styles
Music is Play! and everyone is it's own game. Read, understand and make only the music you like. I think if it isn't fun, it can't be music:) I studied a classical piano bachelor, and later a jazz master and a live electronics master. In the meantime, I have been teaching music. It's longer than 9 years now! Most of my students learn piano. With the starter ones, I use my own system to equally help them grow all the needed skills: body consciousness (to avoid lesions or bad habits), music theory (including writing and reading) and improvisation. Usually most songs are made of melody, chords and rhythm. From there, I can help you understand how a song works, how is it written, how does it translate to the piano... and voilá! You'll know the song by heart, and will be able to play it a bit different every time, because you won't be following a set of pre-imposed instructions. You will understand how a small system (a song) works. This way of learning can be applied to any song, from any century or style. Understanding is key! Play Chopin, write rock songs, play Monk, Bill Evans, the Beatles, make a lo-fi beat, play Beethoven, play the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and Star Wars, play video game music, play salsa! bachata and make people dance, laugh or cry. Music is very powerful! PD: I have also experience imparting electronic music lessons in Ableton Live and Max MSP, which is now a very important part of my professional practice. In case you are interested, it is also possible to mix the two worlds and create a any kind of path between piano, synths, beats and home studio techniques. Ask me anything, I'll tell you how I could help!

Learn MUSIC PRODUCTION in a professional studio: Including composition, arrangement, performance, recording, mixing and mastering.
The basic course takes you through all the elements you need to professionally write and produce music; with specialties ranging from record production to writing for media i.e. T.V and film. Learn all the pitfalls and save yourself years of pain! :) Skills I take you through are: 1. Music finishing; e.g. lyrics, arrangements, programming drums and synth parts. 2. Performance and recording techniques - setting up microphones, and hands on exploring the different types and 'colours' they record. How to record real synths and find the correct sounds for your music. Re-amping guitars and anything else to give your music more life! 3. Mixing; Using Pro Tools HD, Logic and Ableton, an SSL mixer with lots of classic 'outboard' equipment as well as the latest plugins on board the computer. 4. Mastering; The final stage of releasing music is making it sounds amazing on all systems. A course is tailor-made to suit the desire of the student - from recording and releasing your own music, to film audio post-production and sound design and everything else in-between. I have more than 30 years in the music industry, previously working at BBC Radio 1/1xtra station, and also at Jools Holland's Helicon Mountain studios in West London. I am eager to share what I have learnt over the years in a really friendly environment - it's perfect to take home all the knowledge you need to write from anywhere in the coming years.
