Classical guitar and music theory lessons by a qualified teacher from the Conservatory
Whether you are an adult or younger, did you know that with the proper methods, follow-up and advice, you can reach in 2 years the equivalent of what is achieved in 10 years in music school? The passion and pleasure of playing will quickly make you forget the minimum 1h30 of daily practice necessary for this beautiful and pleasant feat. This is the challenge I set myself by offering you these courses. Practicing classical guitar for 27 years, graduated from the National Conservatory of Limoges, I teach guitar (beginner to advanced levels). My method is distinguished by a perfect combination of high standards and attention paid to the pleasure of playing. Passionate about music theory (rhythms, musical notations and other aspects that seem tedious to many), I know how to transmit this taste for musical technique. The pleasure of play develops when you feel your progress, and these come with regular work. I therefore ask for attendance and regularity of at least 1 hour of practice per day. Depending on the students, the frequency of lessons can be bi-weekly or bi-monthly, and will be defined together, while remaining flexible. I can also advise you on the purchase of a classical guitar. Note: the practice of the classical guitar requires short nails on the left hand, and nails overflowing just beyond the tip of the finger, on the right hand, at all times. This allows an inimitable sound quality. References on request Follow up by email/phone as needed between lessons. Examples of pieces you will be able to play after a year: works by Bach, Giuliani, Fernando Sor, Carcassi, Aguado, Jeux Interdits, baroque flamenco, romantic works

Whatever your profile, I will be able to adapt to your level as well as your objectives. From the first apprenticeship to the confirmed courses, the objective is to discover or solidify a theoretical knowledge, but nevertheless essential, on musical and historical notions which will come to complete and enrich your instrumental practice. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Piano lessons: Learn to improvise - accompany - compose! Musician GRADIED
---------------------> Do you want to be able to: -> to IMPROVISE on jazz standards or those pieces that you love ? -> ACCOMPANY someone who sings or an instrumentalist while being satisfied with your game? To enrich your chords and rhythmic games mode? -> to COMPOSER your own pieces, to finally be able to put music on your texts or to arrange them so that they are highlighted? -> to PLAY simply the piano, to release your creativity by being limited only to the notes of the scores but to be able to interpret freely the tunes that you hum, that you hear? -> to UNDERSTAND how does the harmony, the relation between the chords and the notes of the melody work? Understand why one can replace one agreement with another? If you answered YES to at least 1 of these questions and are motivated to progress, then this course is for you ... My pedagogy? Goal: Learning musical language leading to autonomy in order to express themselves through different spheres of music namely improvisation, arrangement, composition, solo or group piano playing. Organization of the course: The course consists of several parts working on the desires and needs of the student. In a good mood, we discuss, explain, define the important musical concepts that we will discuss and then use, making sure that they are understood using examples. We do some exercises of applications together and I also send you those to do for the next class. It is necessary to have your own notebook. I provide you the necessary supports to train you, (audio documents, pdf, handouts). My pedagogy is based on the work of understanding the musical material and visualization. Since music involves many senses, it is important to develop auditory (sound), kinesthetic and logical awareness to work intelligently and maximize the curve of progress. This work will obviously be done according to your objectives and desires to reach. In SUMMARY, I teach the piano through: -> Improvisation -> harmony (learning chords and understanding them) -> rhythmic forms (independence and coordination of hands) -> the accompaniment -> the arrangement -> the composition -> instrumental technique -> the score reading -> the development of the ear If you are totally beginner, do not panic! We will do a program together and you will also learn how to read quickly. Promised, it will not be boring! ;) Whether you want to work on improvisation in depth, the different types of accompaniment or learn your favorite songs, I'm here to help!
