About Me

Hi!
Composer, music theorist, and educator.
I did studies in Music Theory and Composition, I hold 2 Masters in Composition and in Media, Art, Design, and Technology.
I also studied Music Pedagogy, where I developed the course I'm offering: Piano lessons for those who want to play for joy. That means a dynamic class in which you will learn the basics fast enough to be playing some songs in just a few lessons. The final goal of this program is for you to be able to read and play chords and sheet music, such as jazz standards, songbooks, and musical theater scores.

I also teach music theory, from solfeggio and harmony to orchestration and composition.
This lessons are specially made for each student, so we can talk about your needs and I'll try my best to help you.
I can help you take the ABRSM theory examinations (grades 1-8), associate and licentiate diplomas.

Education

Master in Media, Art, Design, and Technology (MA)

Experience / Qualifications

Reviews (4)

He is a great teacher. I've learned so much music theory already in a single session!
Alan is very patient and good at explaining piano concepts. He assessed my level (music background, no piano background), and quickly got me started on music that felt challenging enough that I learned something from the start.
Alan makes the first lesson really easy and enjoyable, he is really nice and his knowledge is awesome. I recommend Alan 100%
Alan is a great teacher and super nice guy. He pay extra attention to your problems with piano and try to fix them using smart and innovative methods. I like the fact that he sometimes doesn't stick to the 60 mins and ask to extend it if he feels something is missing or incomplete. I already had 7 lessons with him and looking for more. Highly recommended.
I am a music composer and theorist. I have been working for 12 years with Sibelius Software. With this lesson, you will learn everything you need to know to be able to write, copy, arrange, and compose music scores, from baroque to contemporary music writing. You will also learn to create and engrave professional scores and parts as well as good quality digital performances of your works, using MIDI language and music libraries.
Piano lessons for beginners and for those who would like to play as a hobby. I created a special program for students who want to play any kind of music (popular, jazz, classical), but can't spend a lot of time studying. You will learn how to read and play sheet music and chords. We cover the basics very fast so you will start playing your favorite songs right away. I also cover some theory that helps a better understanding of what you are playing. In this way the skills you get can then be used for playing other instruments, composing and songwriting.

Ask a question

Send a message explaining your needs and Alan will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

Explore the secrets of the acoustic and electric guitar at any age!
" UNIQUE " What if telling this story with music could be simple, fun and playful? Knowing how to share your inspiration, your feelings, your emotions, all of this through the guitar? This is what I offer you through my course: tune the instrument, work on your first chords and quickly play your first songs; read tablature, discover and master scales and modes to combine them with playing expressions such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, legato; develop your musical ear by exploring the depth of certain styles such as pop, rock, blues, jazz, bossa nova, funk just to name a few. All this will no longer have any secrets for you! Whether you have no experience or a few weeks of practice at hand, we will go step by step, taking into account your level, so that you evolve at your own pace and consistently. But don't forget one thing: the most important thing? Have fun!

Terence
Classes in music theory and practical musicianship
Music theory is the foundation of all playing. You will never find a great musician who isn’t equally as good at playing the instrument as they are and understanding and analysing the piece too. I am a strong believer in making links between what someone is currently playing to what they will learn. If someone’s a beginner then it’s important to look at chords, intervals, key signatures etc.. If you’re a bit further in your playing then we can look at Bach chorales, stereotypical features in genres and styles of music, progressions of ideas throughout music history and more. Finally a person that is very advanced in music may know a lot of theory (by previous lessons or playing experience) and then it’s important to tie in not just advanced concepts in theory but also in history, culture and philosophy of music too. This could be something like deep diving into Charles Mingus’ “Haitian fight song” which uses huge amounts of ideas from Afro-Caribbean folk music, bebop and interpretive jazz. Then looking at the history behind it if oppression, freedom, patriotism and the cultural shift of a former slave nation.

Hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, and pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else.

Ella
Private oboe lessons for all levels in Amsterdam and the North Holland region
During my oboe lessons, enjoying music is central. The double reed plays an important role in both the sound and the ease of playing the oboe. I make sure there is always a reed that plays nicely. In addition, I will pay a lot of attention to the way of blowing. This is the basis that ensures that the students can have fun and make music right from the start. . Making music together is the best thing there is, so I like to play along with the students in a duet. I guide advanced students in developing their (musical) creativity and, if they wish, I offer reed lessons. In these lessons I give tips for updating reeds and explain all the steps of the reed making process.
