Have fun by learning how to play the clarinet and discovering how the music works!

Do you want to have fun learning how to play the most beautiful instrument in the world or improve your skills with it? I'd be delighted to do it with you! I'm a classical clarinetist, I have two masters (recently graduated at Codarts) and different experience in orchestra, chamber music and teaching! My goal as a teacher is to stimulate the student to study in order to be at the disposal of music and not a passive player as can happen many times when you undertake a new study. That is why I like to play with my students and organize little private concerts and try-out.
Concerning the music theory lessons, I am not going to bore you with long and incomprehensible explanations! We will study it in a fun and effective way! I've been studying music since I'm five years old and I started with the Kodaly method that made me approach music in a very natural way! I hope to see you soon!

Jakob
Piano in all styles, music theory, composing, arranging, improvising, playing with other people in a group...
Hey! My name is Jakob, I'm from Slovenia and I've studied classical piano and am currently in second year bachelor for jazz piano. I played in many different bands, so whether it's jazz, classical, pop or any other kind of music, I will guide you through different ways to approach music and practicing (all of them will be fun and what YOU really want/need)! We can work on anything you would like to improve; technique, music theory, accompaniment, songwriting/composing, improvising...

Drum Lessons for all levels - all styles considered!
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 :)

De saxofoon als een verlengstuk van je lichaam: uitdrukking geven aan je gevoelens met zijn prachtige geluid!
Hallo! Welkom op mijn Super Prof profiel! Laat me mijn passie voor het onderwijzen van mijn instrument uitdrukken en het grootste belang benadrukken van het ontwikkelen van een diep begrip van geluid en ritme. We zullen een uitgebreide reis beginnen die oortraining omvat door melodieën te zingen, het verkennen van toonladders, het duiken in harmonie met behulp van de piano, en zelfs een beetje muziektheorie als je geïnteresseerd bent. Onze focus zal voornamelijk liggen op het aanscherpen van onze luistervaardigheid, omdat dat het sleutelelement is. Let op dat onze leerbenadering niet draait om het lezen van muzieknotatie of het vertrouwen op geschreven materiaal. We willen genieten en als we ooit ervoor kiezen om muziek te transcriberen, kunnen we de tegenovergestelde weg nemen. We zullen leren het ritme te voelen en het vervolgens in geschreven vorm om te zetten. Onderwerpen Ontwikkeling van het geluid; Gehoortraining; Weegschalen (met je instrument en met de stem); Akkoorden (ook gespeeld op piano); Solo Transcripties; Ritme; Geschiedenis van muziek; Muziek theorie Muziek lezen Bedankt. Davide

Bandoneon Lessons - Learning from the instrument's technique
Bandoneon is a very well know instrument for playing tango, in fact it's part of the genre's DNA. However, not many people know that the instrument was constructed in Germany and some people even say it was supposed to be used as an portable organ. This means that the Bandoneon has a technique that is independent of any genre. This technique is not found by coping other instruments such as the organ or keyboard but through the development of the nature of the instrument. This is mainly the importance of the air and how it is affected by the pulling and the movement we make when we play. Of course Tango will be an important axis of the lessons as it very important for the development of the instrument and for specific techniques but Tango won't be the starting point as it's not the best pedagogical tool for learning the instrument. But no worries, we'll get there ;) Have you ever wondered how a Gregorian chant, Bach, Mozart & Chopin might sound in the bandoneon? The results might surprise as you would get a very different sound from the one you are originally used to. Also, we can try and use the bandoneon for different and new genres, who knows what we might discover from the instrument along the way?

This is a great way to introduce any young child to the joy of playing. Basic music theory will also be taught.

Our intermediate lessons will progress students to the next level.

Davide Guido
Music Production, Music Theory, Composition, Cello, Sound Engineering
My name is Davide and my music experience started when I was 10 years old during my middle school in Italy. I started playing cello and I kept on studying classical music for 8 years, performing as a soloist and in many orchestras and ensembles. In the meanwhile, I started being interested in electronic music and composition for soundtracks. When I turned 17 I realized that music would have been my passion and my job. I graduated in “Contemporary Writing and Production” at Pescara Conservatory in Italy. During these studies, I dove deeper into Pop and Experimental Electronic Music, orchestration, and orchestral composition. I also had the opportunity to play in different bands and discover different genres such as Post Rock, Progressive Metal, and Heavy Metal. After my bachelor's degree, I finished my studies following a Master's program at Codarts (Rotterdam) in Creative Production. During those two years, I had the opportunity to collaborate with many people and explore different kinds of music (Turkish, Flamenco, Jazz, etc.). I wrote an Artistic Research about electronic unquantized music by analyzing the sound of producers such as Flume, Burial, and Arca. Now that my studies are finished I feel that I want to spread my knowledge and my passion to many people as possible. My class subjects are: - Music Production (from beginners to expert level, mainly Ableton Live and Pro Tools classes) - Cello Lessons (from beginners to intermediate level) - Music Theory (from beginners to expert level) - Composition and Orchestration (explore the world and joy of composing for an orchestra and how to use your DAW as a real symphonic orchestra). As a Producer, I want to let the student feel completely free to ask me whatever he/she wants. I have had many experiences as a producer and I know how to handle many different genres. My first teaching experience was at 17 years old and from that moment on I did not change my teaching set-up. I want the lesson to be an interactive moment in which the teacher and the student are sharing ideas and opinions. Feel free to apply for the lessons. I look forward to meeting you!
