    Drums & Rhythm Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
    My approach to teaching drums is focused on developing a strong understanding of rhythm in general and applying it on the drum set. I will customise my teaching approach to your needs, depending on the level of your playing and your musical desires. I'll give my best in each lesson to guide you step-by-step into becoming a better musician/drummer. You can learn about: - Polyrhythms - Groove - Technique - Macro & micro timing - Drum sounds for different genres/applications - Controlling dynamics between different limbs - Rhythm singing (konnakol) - Reading complex musical notations - Composing mathematically harmonious/inharmonious rhythms And much more... Starting from beginner, up to experienced drummers. I'm also giving rhythm lessons to non-drummers, just to anyone interested in getting to know more about the rhythmical concepts of South India - the most advanced rhythmic system on planet Earth!

    Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
    I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

    Zadie
    Intuitive Music Production with Ableton Live (MAO)
    My name is Zadie and I have been an electro musician for 10 years. Having a great experience in the studio, on stage but also as a speaker in MAO workshops with high school students, I can help you overcome the first technical difficulties of music production to make the music you hear. In an era where everyone can compose, record, mix and share their music with the world, my personalized lessons will allow you to quickly acquire the basic reflexes of musical production to free your creativity. We will discuss many examples of recording, sound design and mixing to give you the autonomy to finalize quality songs. We will work with the very intuitive Ableton Live software which I can provide you with a demo copy.

    Drum Teacher available for technical and motivational lessons online
    If you want to know not just about drum techniques and playing, but also about its history and musicianship, you'll definitely have a unique experience with my lessons. I believe drumming is not just about playing and knowing your chops, but also about being able to listen to others in the band and make sure you "be" part of the music, without resorting to thrashing around and proving to others what kind of noise you can make. Hence the phrase "A band should be as good as its drummer". :) Drumming is undoubtedly a way of building up your self-confidence, in order to establish your identity. The drums are a great use to channel your emotions, so long as you don't have to pull a Keith Moon. ;) I can also add keyboards to the mix.... But why is it relevant for a drummer, you may ask? Well, although it may look the contrary from the outside, having an ear for other instruments and chords is absolutely essential, because both your drumming nd ability to improvise contributes to the atmosphere of each song. If you want to know more, do please get in touch. I look forward to rocking out with you! :)

    Computer Tutoring on Ableton Live
    Ableton Live is the reference software in terms of Computer Aided Music (MAO). Used by the biggest names in the industry, for both composition and live, it allows to adopt a fast and efficient workflow to convert all your ideas into music and that in a short time when you know the program well . Before the course, I always ask what are your motivations, your favorite music genre, the music you want to produce as well as your ambitions in terms of career (hobby? Tours? Ghost-production?), The I set up a personalized course that meets your needs and trains you as quickly and as best as possible so that you have all the knowledge to start alone in the world of music production. Eventually, you'll be able to program your drums, bass lines, and synths alone, process the vocals you use in your songs, and finally mix your entire composition, using only the built-in effects of your songs. Ableton Live (or third-party effects if you already have one). If you consider music production as more than a hobby, I also give music marketing courses (branding, distribution, visuals), which will allow you to create your digital identity and know the do's and don'ts of marketing music online to promote your music correctly (no spam, ...) Finally, I'm Jay Dunham, I've already had the chance to sign compositions on labels such as Armada Music / Klash Records (NL), Black Sur Blanc (FR), No Thanks (FR), Pinnacle Collective (US / LA), Diverge (NL), Kinetik Records (BE)!

Bring me a song you'd like to play, and we'll work through others to help build upon the techniques you'll need to be able to play freely and accuratley, the music you'd like to play.
