He truly clicked with my son and my son loved him. But he is not true to his word and always late and or changing appointments last minute. I understand he travels from Lausanne but he then shouldnt advertise himself as available in Geneva. In the end my son (7) got a broken heart. Wasnt worth it.
Discover the rhythms of West Africa or deepen your knowledge in the field by playing the djembe with Baya on November 10, 2018! Two hours of lessons, mixed levels: Beginners will learn the basic rhythms to accompany the more advanced who will embark on more complex rhythms. I am a djembe teacher for more than 8 years and I have spent my life studying the rhythms of West Africa, and especially those emanating from the cultural diversity of Burkina Faso. I take great pleasure in sharing this knowledge with my students and look forward to meeting you!

Composition Lessons by experienced composer in a wide range of genres
I am a 28-year old composer, electric guitarist and songwriter based in Den Haag, teaching composition, music theory, and score writing. I teach in English or in Greek. I am half Greek and half Scottish and I have been living in the Netherlands for the last 4 years. I offer lessons in all styles, to all age groups, and for any experience level (ranging from students who want to learn how to read and write music to create their first score, up to more experienced composers who are looking for fresh ideas and improving their skills to really make their music shine, or who are looking for help polishing their composition portfolio for entrance exams). Face to face lessons are preferable, but I also teach online. I am a patient and open minded teacher, and my desire is to help you learn what you want to learn, and make sure you enjoy and take pride in your music, explore a breadth of musical ideas that can inform your work, learn to express your musical ideas as best as possible and nurture your curiosity and excitement about the world of music creation ! My Credentials: I hold a Bachelors of Music degree from Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), and a Masters of Music from The Hague Royal Conservatory. My compositions have been performed in venues such as The Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam), TivoliVredenburg (Utrecht), Korzo Theatre (Den Haag), Casa de Musica (Porto), Onassis Stegi (Athens) and at music festivals including Music in PyeongChang (South Korea), Tectonics Athens (Greece), Gaudeamus Muziekweek (Netherlands). 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. I also am very experienced in ambient and electronic-influenced guitar music, which has given me an in depth knowledge also of the guitar in combination with technology such as guitar effects, computer software and multichannel setups which expand the audio palette of the guitar. I have written songs, I have written orchestra pieces, I have worked as a DIY home producer, I have released albums, and I've performed in concert halls, rock venues, squats and festivals. I even some experience in beat-making. My music has been performed in and has taken me to several countries, including Portugal, The Czech Republic, The U.S.A., Canada, Korea, Greece, The U.K., The Netherlands. My Teaching style: My emphasis is to teach you based on your interests and your needs. The lessons are based around each individual student. You bring me the music you are creating and the skills you want to develop as a composer, and I build my lessons around that. 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.

Giorgos
I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

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!

Guitar and Music lessons from a CvA graduated teacher in Amsterdam
Learning to play the guitar can be an amazing experience at every stage of the process! My ultimate goal is to help my students to develop their skills and musical understanding by learning and playing music that they like. Therefore I adapt my teaching methodologies to the taste and needs of every student. Throughout every lesson, we will work on three main courses of development: technical aspects, theoretical knowledge, and performative practice. My classes are open for anyone who would like to enjoy exploring the universe of music: beginners and advanced, children and adults, you are all welcome to book the first lesson.

Pedro
Guitar lessons for students of all levels in the Lake Zurich area
The program will be tailored according to the student goals. (leisure, professional development) focusing on; basic knowledge of the guitar, basic chords and more advanced chords, scales and modes, theory and practice of improvisation, study of a repertoire, right hand technique (fingers or pick), music theory and rhythm. An understanding of what are the goals and interests of student, as well as their skills is the most effective way to pass on knowledge.

Producing (Electronic) Music with FL Studio - For beginners and advanced!
Always wanted to learn how to make music in FL Studio? Then this lesson is for you! I have been producing music with FL Studio for years and love to share my knowledge with people who want to learn this too. Whether you are a beginner and would like to learn how to make a song from scratch or if you are already more experienced and would like to take your music to a new level, I can help you with that. I specialize in Electronic Dance Music (EDM), but I also have experience with many other genres. I am currently taking a Professional Music Production course myself, so I also learn new things every week that I can include in my own lessons.

Piano Lessons - from children to adults, any level. Classical music, pop/rock, etc., at student's home
Hello! I am classical pianist in the last year of my Master's degree at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag. I teach Piano (and also Music Education) since 2016, to both children and adults. Teaching allows me to bring my passion and enthusiasm for music to the students, and I also find incredibly rewarding to guide and follow their musical and technical development! I am easily adaptable to the students' musical taste and expectations/goals in music learning, and I am also very mindful of how I communicate, according to the students' ages and personalities. I can teach classical music, pop, rock, or any other style. My approach consists of: giving you the necessary theoretical knowledge for what you wish to play; involving you actively in the choice of the pieces/songs you will play; setting up a long-term plan for your repertoire, so that your development is made step by step in a challenging - but achievable - way (and this way, you will feel more motivated!); giving you enjoyable and creative practicing strategies; creating a rich imagery revolving around the piece - by making up a story, relating the music to emotions, etc.; and also positive feedback! Thus, my lessons will allow you to: - Learn how to read scores. -Develop your musical understanding (from notes, rhythm, harmony, to musical taste, emotional comprehension of the music, or dive into aesthetic principles concerning the period and style of the piece,...). -Improve, step by step, until you are able to play that piece/song that you love. -Prepare yourself for exams. -Etc. The best thing is that it's possible for you to learn all this and have fun at the same time! Any question, don't hesitate to contact me.

If you are looking for an open, approachable, experienced and fun practitioner to help unlock/realise your potential then this one is for you. We can cover approaches to: Lyric writing, rhythm, harmony, melody, arrangement, instrumentation (inc. vocals if required), sonic (production) to breath more variation into your existing songs or develop new material together - happy to explore your goals and see where we can go from there. Happy to teach on an instrument and/or using a DAW (Ableton preferred) I have been working in the industry as an independent artist/top-line/co-writer for the past 18 years, alongside tutoring budding songwriters, musicians and emerging artists for the past 12 years using an extensive knowledge base developed both on the job and by undertaking my BA and MA qualifications.

EXPRESS YOURSELF! INTUITIVE MUSIC MENTORING (expression, creativity, self confidence)
Express Yourself! Unlock Creative Potential + Overcome Anxiety = Share The Gift That You Truly Are Sessions from anywhere online via Zoom or Skype or in person in Berlin. Do you play music but don't really know where to start in making your own? Do you feel anxious thinking about performing your music and is the idea of standing on stage very scary to you? I know exactly how you feel. I was a very shy and introvert being myself when I first started my path as an artist. I am here to help you on your musical journey and overcome those blockages. My mentoring sessions are open to any walks of life whether you have just started your musical journey or have been creating sounds for years. I wish to offer my experience and knowledge of being a live performer for 5 years and working with sound design and music production. I have an intuitive approach to mentoring and see myself as a creative doula (the ancient midwife), guiding you towards giving birth to your unique creations and authenticity. It can be scary to feel your own power but if we learn to tame it our sensitivity and vulnerability can become our greatest ally and help us share the gift that not only we have but also that we truly are. Just the way we tune an instrument, we can also learn how to tune our own selves and express the core of our being in the most authentic way. As an intuitive music mentor I want to share my experience with you in composing my own music and performing live with tools that help me build my creativity and open myself to expression. Composition is the art to flow with energy, the less we put control into it the more it surprises us and brings us to new territories unveiling the potential in ourselves we didn't even know existed. Because everyone is different in the way we express ourselves I have no fixed idea of how this course will be taught and I will adapt to every student's needs. I will share with you some meditation and breathing techniques to prepare yourself for live performance and give the best out of yourself. This course also applies to non-musicians and will benefit beginners as well as more advanced people.
