About Me

Hi, my name is Branko. I've been studying Drums and Classical Percussion for 17 years now, I started to play when I was 6 years old. I've performed many concerts, competitions masterclasses, and performances during my life as a musician. One year ago I came to broaden my view in my field and continued my studies in Holland where I'm a student at the Codarts University of the Arts Rotterdam. The reason for my tutoring here is first of all that I love to teach, and also to support my life here. I'm here to give everything I know to anyone who is interested in that knowledge.

Education

Bachelor in Classical music at "Codarts University of the Arts" Rotterdam.
Graduate of "National Music School "L. Pipkov" in Sofia/Bulgaria".
Graduate of many international academies in Europe and beyond.

Experience / Qualifications

Bachelor degree at Codarts Univercity of the arts Rotterdam.
"Certificate for professional qualification" in music from the NMS "L. Pipkov" Sofia/Bulgaria.
Laureate of many international percussion competitions with mainly 1st and 2nd prices. Member of different rock, jazz, fusion, hip hop bands. Played in many classical orchestras as timpanist or percussionist, including projects with the Mannheimer Philharmonic.
Do you want to play in a band, play for fun at home with friends, or become a proffecional drummer? Come for a lesson in my studio and see what you'd like to learn. If you like a certain style, we will focus on it and develop your playing towards your taste. I've been playing, teaching and studying drums for over 15 years now. I take it very seriously and try to tailor my teaching to every student that I have. I can use my experience as a proffecional musician to make you progress fast and focus on things not every teacher knows from books. In this course we will focus on technique as well as creativity and improvisation (one of the most enjoyable aspects of playing drums). Do you have any other percussion instrument you'd like to expand your knowledge on? I can offer you percussion lessons as well since I have a lot of experience in playing percussion as well. If you want to study with me I can provide a stable program for development for fast results including scores, exercises, etc. About me: As well as teaching, I'm mainly a performer of music - I've been playing drums with different bands as well as classical percussion for more than 15 years now in many different settings. In the last years of my development I've taken a closer look to jazz, pop, hip hop and rock music. I can use my experience to find good qualities in my students and develop them as much as possible. I hope you consider me to be your teacher :)

Electric Bass and Improvisation Lessons in Rotterdam
Hi, I am Zalan! Are you considering to become a bass player? Are you interested in improvisation? Do you want to play in a band? Or are you on the way to become a musician already, but you need some extra help? You are in the right place then. I am professionally educated electric-bassist and teacher from Hungary, currently based in Rotterdam (I am on Master 1 in the Royal Conservatory of The Hague) I am an active musician since 2014, I have played in several formations from solo performances to bigbands and orchestras. I mostly play in the genres of jazz (free, fusion), metal, repetitive minimal music and contemporary classical music. Besides playing I am quite passionate about teaching, after I have finished my Bachelor degree I started to teach in music schools and also in private. I teach jazz theory and my own teaching method too in a very clear way. My view on music is simple: Music is a game, that is why we call it "playing" music. Write to me if you are interested!

Understand What You Play on the Guitar - Harmony,Theory and Music on the fretboard
The internet is full of videos and tutorials about songs, chords, scales, licks and even music theory. But if you're tired of playing that song, or that lick, without being able to change it, then this class is for you. Before I entered the conservatory, I could never really understand what I was playing. And that was preventing me from expressing my musicality. By this I mean, I wasn't able to change a chord, or do a variation on a melody, or even creating an Intro. And this requires not so hard skills that can easily be developed just by thinking in music by its harmonical context. In my lessons I'll garantee you learn all this skills and you start making music since the very first day.

Carolina
Guitar lessons for teens-adults, classical and acoustic guitar
Hi! Thanks for being here, my name is Carolina and I'm a musician and a guitarist. I have the bachelor in classical guitar. I also have several years of experience teaching guitar to people all ages. With me, you will learn to play guitar with the songs and melodies you like while you improve your technique and get better with the instrument. It's not necessary to know music theory, though it's always better if you know a little bit. But I will make sure to teach you the basics so you can understand what you are doing with your guitar and someday, be able to play by yourself. I will teach you to identify and play rythms, the basic (and not that basic) chords, tonalities, melodies, right and left hand technique, etc.
