About Me

Hello,

I am Tristan, I am 24 years old and I have been playing music for 19 years. I have a unique and broad understanding of music that has stemmed from multiple facets including my participation in music throughout my public education, my formal music education from UNM, my ongoing involvement in musical theatre, and my personal endeavors in music composition and performance.
I believe that music has a powerful way of bringing people together and I'm passionate about using it to communicate, teach, and empower people of all levels and ages.

Education

I earned my Bachelor's of Liberal Arts in 2017 from the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque focusing in Music Theory and Composition, Theatre, and Dance.

Private Voice lessons with instructor Aaron Howe 2018-2020

Experience / Qualifications

I worked as the Music Director for Big Fish the Musical at Musical Theatre Southwest Albuquerque, NM. January-March 2020
Introduction to ukulele in a fun and pressure-free environment! In my lessons we will: -Familiarize ourselves with the neck of the ukulele. -Learn major and minor chords -Learn major, minor, and blues scales -Learn songs suited to each student's individual playing levels -Learn effective practicing techniques -Build a repertoire of increasing level as students progress over time -Build improvisation skills -Have fun exploring the vast world of sound and music!
Music is both a written and spoken language! And just as all written languages, music has rules to follow in order to understand it (like grammar or syntax). This course is designed to help students with a basic knowledge of music notation begin to understand the inner contructs, mechanics, and relationships within written music! In this course we will cover many different contructs of music each including multiple smaller elements. These include: •Intervals -what are semitones -what are scale degrees -consonance vs. dissonance -how to distinguish intervals •Chord Structure (all qualities) -how chords are constructed -differences in chord qualities e.g. major, minor, diminished, augmented -what are inversions - what are 7th and 9th chords •Key signatures (Major and Minor) -what they are -how they work -their relationships to each other -how to distinguish them •Time signatures -how to count compex and compund meters -differences between simple, complex, and compound meters -How to count time changes
MUSIC IS FOR EVERYONE! It is a universal language that is written and communicated the same throughout the world. It brings people together and everyone can benefit from knowing how to read it! You can begin to learning how to read music at any time! I'm here to help students at any point in their life begin their musical education! In this course you will learn all the basics you need to know to begin reading music for your primary instrument. This includes: •Learning what all the symbols are and what they mean. •Learning how to read different note lengths and rest lengths. •Learning and memorizing note names •Learning how to read basic time signatures •Learning the major and minor scale. •Learning how to count beats of music. •Develop an understanding of tempo. I strive for my lessons to be fun and engaging. I like to use exciting and popular musical examples to demonstrate and reinforce my teaching. In my lessons students will progress from having little to no understanding of music notation to being able to sight read a musical staff with no confusion! After students learn how to confidently read music our lessons together may certainly continue into my Introduction to Music Theory course where we will cover more challenging subject matter and dive further into the constructs and mechanics of music!

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

I then wanted to improve my vocal technique and it was through the vocal programs of Brett Manning (Singing Success) and the advice of his associates that I could improve my voice considerably. I am currently a member of the IVTOM International voice teacher of mix to train me more precisely on the scientific aspect of the voice.

Online guitar and piano lessons, in various styles and for all levels.
I give acoustic and classical guitar on every level and in most styles. On the piano I teach beginners and on average advanced students. I have extensive experience at various music schools in South Holland, as a private teacher at home and in my own studio. Currently I teach online from abroad with Skype or Facetime for the iPad, iMac or iPad users. Online lessons are actually just like regular lessons, but you can stay at home and play on your own instrument. All the music you need can be downloaded for free on a link that you get when you take lessons. I am flexible with teaching times, but moving is usually possible. Due to the time difference, the lessons are in the morning Dutch time. Up to about 14.00. I studied guitar at the Tilburg Conservatory and later piano during my conductor training at the SNK. I also have broad experience at primary schools as well as in secondary education as a specialist teacher music and music teacher.

Wouter
(Bass) Guitar, Music theory and Solfège in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht
Hello (future) musician! Do you also have a song in your head that you would like to play? Always wanted to play electric or acoustic guitar or bass guitar? Have you never touched a string, or are you advanced and looking for new challenges? I have been giving guitar lessons since 2007 with great pleasure. In addition to these private lessons, I worked at the Guitar Academy in Amsterdam, at Muziekles Den Bosch and at Art in Music in Utrecht, next to my work as an executive musician. I studied at the Rockacademie in Tilburg and Musicology at Utrecht University. Broad interests, reflected in the hoevelheid styles I play and education (from pop and rock to salsa, tango and gypsy to metal and jazz). I also give solfège and music theory. It does not matter how exotic your interest, I can help you get better! In addition, I can choose and arrange songs for you, so that there is no limit to your imagination: learn to play what you want to learn to play. These lessons are not given in a large, impersonal music school: lesson duration and lesson dates are discussed and are flexible. Personal and smooth, easier for everyone. Besides guitar enthusiast teaching is a big passion of mine, and I think that is essential to be able to offer good lessons. Whether I teach you how to play your first songs in a few lessons, or whether we are going to pick up some tough pieces, it is a pleasant and productive learning process. Lessons in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht or at extra cost at home. If you have questions, mail or call!

Javier
PROFESSIONAL GUITARIST OVER 15 YEARS OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE - ONLINE GUITAR LESSONS (SKYPE + TRACKS AND PERSONAL EXERCISES
The Skype online guitar lessons allow you to make a personalized learning in any place that the student thinks comfortable. Thanks to my experience as a teacher, I discovered that online courses are a good option for students of all levels, offering the possibility to be personally followed on Skype plus digital sheets written each course and access to tracks recorded especially for the practice of all day. Method For more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I developed several methods and exercises for teaching guitar and music (composition, improvisation, harmony, etc.) for students of all levels. Over time, I realized that the most important thing is to have the ability to adapt to each student. I think the main thing is that students get to find the motivation to practice regularly with pleasure to progress in this instrument. The most common is the use of songs that the student chooses and take advantage of this to work on more general concepts of music and guitar that are important to gain a solid foundation and without bad habits. For more advanced students learning is determined together to set a personal goal.

Improvisation for Guitar on the Minor Pentatonic Scale
Have you been curious how guitarists can come up with a solo on the spot and play for what seems like hours? That is exactly the point of this lesson. We will focus on you learning a few basic scales so that you can improvise over most rock and blues songs. Progressively, we will build your finger muscle strength, and correct techniques for playing. I have taught past students and got them to successfully learn the basics of improvisation that lead them to develop their own soloing style. This improvisation course is made for beginners.

Matt
Apprendre à jouer à la guitare acoustique/électrique
Guitar lessons are always useful for all levels of guitar playing. the course content will depend on the level of the student and is entirely open to any preferences in songs or techniques the student wishes to learn. My course is designed in such a way that it focuses on the student's creativity with the guitar and works towards fine tuning what will eventually become the student's original song or composition. I encourage my students to tap into their creativity, since in my experience, I have found that this is where the pleasure and beauty of music tends to surface, when there are the least amount of boundaries possible. All styles of music are welcome!
