About Me

I like to have a flexible method, concerned on the student's needs, but I tend to connect them as much as I can with existing music in order to understand notions, and not the opposite.
We will have a list of songs we might learn to figure out new guitar techniques, chords or theory notions, and we will learn how to improvise step by step.
I'm also an expert in electronics (computer, Ableton Live, audio and synthesizers) and guitar effects, so we can explore that side of guitar too.

Education

I have an academic background but I also played in rock bands for years before diving into a professional carreer. My degrees are:
Bachelor in Jazz Guitar 110/110 at Conservatorio Verdi di Milano 2014
Master in Jazz guitar at Conservatorium v Amsterdam 2016
Master in Live Electronics at Conservatorium v Amsterdam 2018

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching beginners to professional musicians for more than 10 years now. I gave classes and workshops about guitar and electronic music.

Learn How to Make Your Own Music: Saxophone, Improvisation, Ableton Live.
Music is a great way to express yourself and your feelings, it is an amazing tool to learn about your personality. As an art form, music has been around with us from ancient times. As a musician, you'll need to be able to know music theory and acquire technique. Through years of teaching I've developed a method of learning music in a practical and structured way, keeping the joy of making music as a main focus, as well as providing with all the necessary theoretical background. I teach music to all ages: my students currently are from 5 to 81 years old. And all levels: I have an individual approach for every student. You will learn how to play music, listen to music, compose your own music and more! Usually, my students are able to make music within a first week of learning and I have a lot of positive feedbacks and reviews from them! My lessons are: saxophone, improvisation, composition, Ableton Live, artist development.

Ableton & MaxMSP Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing, and mastering. Max, also known as Max/MSP/Jitter, is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations. Depending on your interest I will show you how to use and customise each program to your needs, but also show you how to combine the two in order to get the best of the 2 worlds. Ableton and MaxMSP are a killer combo for anyone that wants to: - expand their musical instrument with electronic extensions - create custom made controllers for their live performances - create complex automations for live or studio use - produce music, compose, arrange - create automated VJ sets to accompany their live performance - create a live looping performance - control backing tracks for live performances - work on generative music - program art installations and much more I will give you sets & patches with examples to accompany the lessons, but also help you build your own creations in MaxMSP or Ableton.

Composition and General Music Production in Ableton Live for all levels.
In general, music creation requires several steps from how to generate the idea in your mind, express it in a program like Ableton, know how to use that program well to be able to guide your idea through it, understanding its tools and workflow to be able to express (create) the idea as it sounds in your head, until you can reach the mix of your own song and culminate in the mastering, this with the aim of being able to make your idea sound really professional by your own hand. The objective and my commitment is that you understand music in general in a professional way, from a not very common point of view but very interactive and easy to understand and also very easy to carry out. I am a musician for several years, I have a degree as Musical Producer in Contemporary Popular Music, as Electronic Music Producer, in Audio Engineering and I have certification as a DJ, and I play drums and piano as main instruments.

Konstantin
Ableton Live, Music Composing (EDM, techno, house, hip hop music),
Having started making music at the age of 8, I fell in love with classical music. Already in music college, I wanted something more and immersed myself in the study of jazz and punk rock. I became a soloist of the Philharmonic in a Russian city ... And again I wanted something more. For ten years now I have been doing electronic music, releasing my music on labels, performing as a DJ and using all my experience in my tracks and teaching people. Music is a tree with roots that go deep into history. And I, teaching electronic music, use the background of previous generations and my own experience to quickly and efficiently teach the student to create excellent tracks. Even if you do not know anything about music, about theory, about how digital audio workstations work, I will teach you everything you need for a joyful journey in the worlds of music.
