Private lessons Home studio, Ableton, Music production and Audio mixing

Are you passionate about music?
Are you an accomplished musician or DJ and want to increase your production possibilities?
Or are you just new and creative and don't know where to start?
Are you stuck and often having trouble finalizing a song?
Do you want a clear and structured follow-up without stuffing yourself with daunting manuals, confused youtube tutorials or overpriced training?

If you recognize yourself in these questions, I suggest you accompany you in the vast world of audio-digital and music production in home studio.
Because yes, nowadays, you can do everything from home, from the idea of ​​a song to its distribution on streaming platforms.
But on the other hand, despite the increasingly efficient hardware and software innovations, it is very difficult to find your way around, especially when you are just starting out.
I know, I've been there too.

Typical course and examples of courses:

Each student has different expectations and desires.
The advantage of private lessons is that I can adapt to your profile, whatever your starting level or your age.
In general, the first free course will allow you to get to know each other better and identify precisely your objective and your blockages.
I can then better respond and identify the key steps to achieve.

The theory is good but the practice is a thousand times more important.
We quickly set foot in the stirrup.
You are in front of the machine ready to do battle, and I stay by your side to guide you.

The courses then take place according to various learning axes determined together according to your profile:

- Discussion on the best material for your project, according to your personal objectives and your budget: Hardware, DAW, plugins…
- Familiarize yourself with DAW (“Digital Audio Workstation”): I work mainly on Ableton Live or Protools.
I can possibly teach you the basics (synthesis, composition, audio processing, signal flow) on Logic Pro.
Because it is important to familiarize yourself with the tool as best as possible and not to lose motivation in the face of what can look like a "gas factory" all in all quite intimidating for a novice in the matter.
This revolves around the following themes:
- Quick handling of any virtual instrument (VST Synth, sampler)
- How to record: your voice, external sounds, any other instrument (choice of microphone and placements, stereo, what to consider, mistakes to avoid ...)
- Compose a first song quickly
- Musical composition (tone, rhythm, melody and chord construction)
- Audio processing adapted to sound design or mixing (EQ, Compression, Reverb, Distortion, Sidechain, layering, automations…)
- Post-production (Mixing & Mastering): depending on your level,
Introduction to these trades:
What sets it apart from production?
Awareness of studio acoustics
Know how to read and interpret a waveform and frequency spectrum
Learn critical listening
More advanced course: work methodology, level management, Loudness, Mid / side, referencing


The benefits of medium-term support:

- obtaining commercially viable professional quality music, whatever your initial background and musical style
- greater clarity and autonomy in your future choices: you will be able to ask yourself the right questions
- an organization in all circumstances to remain productive and without inspiration breakdown
- and, overall, a progression in your artistic journey.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Sound engineer by training, I have been teaching computer music for 5 years.
I have been passionate about music for a long time, because of the emotions it conveys but also because it offers endless possibilities of creation, accessible to all thanks to technological developments and experimentation.
Another way of creating music using a simple computer without necessarily becoming a music theory expert or playing an instrument quickly fascinated me.

I am not myself a practicing musician, at least not in the classic sense of the term, because my main favorite instrument is the computer (and my ears).
I am more particularly specialized in musical post-production, that is to say the phase of mixing and mastering after the actual production.
Then, faced with the growing demand of students and musicians who want to learn to produce and mix their songs themselves, I turned to teaching and coaching.

I like to share a maximum of techniques and know-how, based on my own experience in this vast and constantly evolving field.
Pedagogy and rigor are my main assets.

Eamonn
Guitar and singing lessons in Brussels with a professional singer-songwriter/producer (En/Fr)
Trained at the Music Academy International, I propose private lessons of Guitar, Singing, and/or Audio Production centered on amplified music (funk, soul, jazz, rock, blues, etc.) and adapted to the requests of each student. My classes are open to all, children and adults, beginners or advanced. I attach great importance to the understanding of the technical tools implemented in the interpretation of the pieces, a typical lesson is therefore divided between technical work with clear explanations and actual practice on songs to play or sing. If the student is interested, I also teach the more theoretical aspects of music, such as harmony (scales, chords, modes, improvisation), music theory, rhythm, ear training, and deciphering. I also offer coaching sessions. These are non-regular sessions to target work on specific aspects of the requested repertoire. Each lesson is accompanied by work material (paper or audio) to practice at home. For guitar lessons, an instrument can be made available, for singing lessons, I accompany the student on the piano or the guitar (it is also possible to use backing tracks when the key and tempo are right ) and for audio production, I can provide the software required to start on any operating system (Win, Mac, and Linux) (I don't work with pirated software). Classes are given in my studio in Etterbeek, 5-minute walk from La Chasse. I also teach group lessons for singing, do not hesitate to contact me for more information. Flexible schedule (daytime or evening).

My experience as a performer range from classical guitar studies, to playing electric guitar in rock bands, as well as experience as an improviser, performer of notated contemporary classical compositions, creator and performer of ambient and electronic music.

My primary goal is help you develop your voice as a composer, so the starting point for our lessons will always be your music. My aim is always to help you find what the heart of your composition is about, and help you to bring this out and really make it shine. To help illustrate ideas about topics we discuss I will bring examples that can help inform the music you are creating, we will explore ideas of arrangement, orchestration, rehearsal leading and / or production to help flesh out your music, as well as music theory and using scores of other composers.

Sing from your room! Online singing lessons for young and old at your own pace (Classical and other styles)
Do you like to sing and do you want to develop your voice? Looking for a way to get away from it all? Maybe you now have the time to try out a new hobby? Great, because singing is great fun and healthy! During my online lessons we will explore the possibilities of your voice together. Developing a healthy, natural voice and fun are central. That is why the lessons are completely adapted to your qualities, taste and tempo. Together we work on a solid singing technique, breathing, articulation, interpretation, musicality and voice hygiene. We explore the classical singing repertoire and look for music that suits your voice. You can also take a trip to other genres (jazz, pop, musical, ...) You learn to use your voice from a classical approach, but with good singing technique you can handle many styles! Why you should come to class: - You have always wanted to learn to sing, with or without a specific goal in mind - You are curious about the possibilities to (further) develop your voice - You are looking for a creative outlet - You suffer from an often tired speaking voice and want to make it stronger - You sing in a choir and you want to work on your singing technique or you need some extra help with studying - You want to change your mind in a relaxing way - ... Whatever your motivation, you are always welcome! You can also take lessons together (with your friend, with the kids, ...). Do you have questions or are you unsure whether singing is something for you? Do not hesitate to contact me!
