The lessons are (currently) taking place in compliance with 1.5 meters or online. One of my specialties is synthesis and sound design, in other words creating your own unique sounds. For this, my collection of vintage equipment is at our disposal, including a large modular system. But even without hardware you can of course go in all directions using. virtual instruments or the new free virtual modular synthesizer "VCV Rack". Questions I often got in interviews are "How do I start a track", "how do you get inspiration" and of course: "How do I finish a track". Thanks to my many years of experience, these are all things that I can help you on your way. The lessons are also suitable for instrumentalists who want to learn about recording or electronically accompanying their instrument, but also for DJs who would like to make their own productions.

Caroline Ripolles
Tailor-made language lessons for French, Spanish and English in Soest and the surrounding area
I am Caroline, a French woman who has lived in the Netherlands for 25 years. I was raised trilingual with French as my mother tongue and Spanish and German as second languages (Spanish father and Austrian mother). I have also lived in Great Britain and Norway (Norwegian husband) for a number of years, so I now speak 6 languages. I have been giving private lessons for years with a lot of enthusiasm and personal attention. My way of teaching is very free. I can follow a specific book, or adapt the lesson completely to the student with my own lessons. I always try to offer a combination: part grammar, part reading skills and reading comprehension, and a free part with fun themes. A language is alive, so I always try to give living lessons. Through experience I also know that many people who have difficulty with languages quickly drop out because the pace is too fast and because they do not understand the basics of the language. My lessons give the student the time to understand the language so that they can catch up. They also learn to overcome their fear of speaking. Real tailor-made lessons that guarantee progress and where you will not drop out!
