Learn to Play Piano (Jazz, Accompanying, Songwriting, Music Theory)

Hello there, ever since I was a teenager I have always admired musicians in small and gigantic stages alike, and have wondered how such marvelous magic could possibly be created from their fingertips. If you are reading this, then maybe you feel the same way towards the piano as I do!

I can offer myself to explore with you, with my experiences coming from jazz piano playing, how it works on the piano: basic playing skills, chords and how to voice them, playing solo lines, harmonic knowledge to write your own song, learning to read a lead sheet with only melody and chords, and so many more.

Here are some of the goals that you and I can work together to make it happen:

1) Learn to play your favorite tunes on piano or electric piano
2) Learn to accompany yourself while you are singing
3) Learn to play in a band setting
4) Learn to write and play your own songs
5) Learn the keyboard skills for your home production gears (i.e. MIDI keyboard controllers)
6) Learn to improvise on the piano

Now, a little bit about myself; the moment I decided that I should try for music came much later compared to my colleagues. I started very late, and thus had to come up with methods of teaching myself fast and efficiently. And I believe that my own experiences coming from the struggles I've had could be of help to you, to understand the task at the hand better and to come up with plans on how to handle them.

Still, at the end of the day, progress by itself would be not our ultimate goal; it would be to have fun sitting in front of the piano!

If you are interested, hit me up!

About Me

Experiences of pursuing a career in the field of academia, being an amateur musician, being a music student, working as a professional musician, and being a private tutor/instructor for both school subjects and music have vastly expanded my horizon as a music teacher, which I would love to share with you.

I have started to pursue a career in music very late compared to my fellow colleagues, which means I was always facing challenges to be as efficient as possible while not losing the spirit of musicality and the passion that brought me to this path. I am very sincere in saying that my experience of coping with these situations will be of help to you!

Education

I have finished Jazz Piano Performance at Seoul Jazz Academy, currently continuing my studies at the Prins Claus Conservatorium. I've had the honor and pleasure of studying with some of the best musicians/teachers from the Netherlands and the United States, including Jasper Soffers, Rob van Bavel, Lex Jasper, Marc van Roon, David Berkman, Kevin Hays, and Fabian Almazan.

Experience / Qualifications

I have played in many countries, the list of which is only to expand. I feel also very humble and thankful that many colleagues of mine have asked me to perform for their recordings and senior recitals.

PRIVATE Music Lessons: electric bass, improvisation, composition, music theory.
The class I propose as a private teacher cover the following subjects: -Bass Guitar: we will cover elements such as technique (from basic to advanced), groove, timing, soloing, creating catchy basslines in different genres (Jazz, Pop, Rock, Funk, World Music, etc..) -Improvisation: idiomatic (related to music-genre) and non-idiomatic -Composition and Music theory: study of harmony, scales, melody, creative musical-writing. All these subjects are interconnected in the lesson! N.B. IMPROVISATION, COMPOSITION AND MUSIC THEORY ARE OPEN TO ALL INSTRUMENTALISTS!! The first lesson with a new student is always an opportunity for the student to express what he likes about music. During the first lesson I usually propose my favorite music to the new student, and the the student does the same. The first lesson is the first approach in knowing each other, so that I can tailor a study programme that fits perfectly my student. By developing the just-mentioned study programme I guarantee that practice is linked to pleasure, cuoriosity and discover! Regular practice is also ensured by giving the student exciting and challenging assignments, that at the same time are doable. In this way I guarantee both satisfaction and challenge.

Learn to Play (Jazz) Saxophone! Highly-personalized lessons that focus on the student's individual progress
Hello fellow musician! Have you ever dreamed of becoming a saxophone player? Wheter you are trying to become a jazz improviser, or you have just started familiarizing with the instrument, I can teach you how to: - be able to produce a beutiful sound; - use music theory as a practical way to play correctly over changes; - maximize the outcome of your practice-time; - master the technique on your horn. As a student, I often found myself struggling with resolving a particular set of problems. I would often be confronted with higher-levelled players, wondering whether I would ever be able to express myself as they did through their music. Having been studying this music for many years, I experimented with a lot of different learning methods, only to find out that music improvisation is something that is mainly learned in a very personal, differentiated way. One of the most interesting things I experienced as an educator, when confronted with students who shared my own past insecurities, doubts, questions, and struggles, was getting to understand a part of the person in front of me; and to find a way in which they would finally be able to grasp and internalize a theoretical concept that could then enable them to formulate a more coherent musical idea. Even if every student is a unique individual, thus responding to different educational methods, I think that, over time, I was able to identify a red line around which I could create a method that can be beneficial to the majority of aspirational players. For the past few years, I have been giving private instrument lessons to jazz players with varied backgrounds and experience. My educative career consists of a traditional classical, MA in classical saxophone (Conservatorio G. B. Martini, Bologna), a BA in jazz saxophone (ibid.), and a BA in jazz saxophone called New York Jazz Bachelor at the Prins Claus Conservatorium in Groningen, where I just started my Master.

Bass Guitar/Animation/Adobe After FX/Post Production/Video
Online (worldwide) Offline (Groningen) Bass and innovations, visual content, defi, web3, crypto, NFTs. My experience is connected with several companies (MU Interactive, Simple Frame, Lightcraft, and ModulorVR as I did video editing / mapping, VFX, SFX, 2d / 3d animations, motion graphics). For ModulorVR I worked completely remotely as well. I mainly work with After Effects (with Polish companies clients like MediaMarkt, Mediatech, ING etc), I studied Final Cut and Adobe (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere too) with my advertising school. Now I use Blender, Cinema 4d, p5.js or Processing too. According to Gallup's teamwork testing, my top 3 talents are: 1. Strategy 2. Input 3. Empathy. I also gained a lot of experience with other industries, I worked with small or large teams, now I also study Dutch, I improve my communication by working with people offline. Doing volunteer work for FITC (Future Innovation Technology Creativity), I personally met Beeple or Pak there. So naturally I got excited about NFTs, crypto or defi and now I'm even more obsessed with podcasts again. Before meeting Beeple or GMunk, I also listened to podcasts with them. And I studied art history to prepare for the future. I made my first movies when I was a teenager, my visual workflows started with compilations about football... And that's how I made my first money (when I was 15 years old) with our international collective for SportsMaxTV. (completely remote) With Polish visual companies I worked as a video editor / video mapper or motion designer, and now I live in the Netherlands, so I become more communicative and sporty. Always learning is really important to me. I am not afraid of new things, innovations and to work smarter or harder. Sincerely, FR (Philip)

Piano lessons. Classical music, improvisation and musical theory.
I offer lessons of piano playing to any person who wants to start with the instrument or want to improve their skills. i have worked with kids and adults. My formation is from classic piano, being that my main activity of study. I have played different styles aswell, from jazz to neo soul, and I also enjoy playing piano through midi and produce music. Lately I have been creating lo fi piano music so I think I can offer a wide range of different styles. I like to work listening to the demands of my students, and not imposing repertory that doesn't come from the desire of the student, although I can offer some guidelines in order to make the progress of the student more organize and consistent.

Hugo

The love of music will be highlighted above all. A program adapted to each student will be established according to expectations. With the appropriate tools for the good practice of the violin and concrete objectives, we will be able to achieve a fast and satisfactory result. I have been teaching for many years and I'm currently working as a "violin group leader" in the Noord Nederlands Orkest. My experience has led me around the world in contact with the greatest masters of the violin. Violin and music have been the most important thing in my life and sharing my passion have always been a treasure to me. Class location and time can be discussed. ( Webcam also possible ) Feel free to contact me for more information! Hugo

Nick
How to play saxophone and the art of improvisation Groningen
I think of myself as social musician. I mostly like to play sharing music with others. My first priority goes to having an interesting/charming/ resonant full sound. Then i work on how to connect your ears to your instrument so that you can play as simple as possible in a way that you can hear it before you are getting to play it on saxophone. We can also work on repertoire based on taste in music of your choice. If we choose some music that you like before actually studying it, this is a strong motivation for the student to go for it ! I am mostly an alto and tenor player but i can teach to any other kind of saxophone like baritone, soprano etc. My sound , technique and lessons are mostly coming from jazz music(blues ,swing , mostly American music of 20s-60s) I assign homework after every lesson about the technique of the saxophone but also the possible tools of improvisation in music.

I am offering lessons for all ages and level as I have various experiences. Also if you are an adult (complete beginner/restarter) don't hesitate to contact me as my motto is: never too late to start to play the violin. (Lessons are also available at a simple dutch level.)
