It is so versatile and used in many genres ranging from Classical music, to Death Metal and even Electronic Music.

I have been teaching for almost four years. My lessons are tailored to the individual and I teach all ages and stages. Depending on whether you are looking for a hobby, an escape or a new skill to develop, I would love to teach you. I grew up classically trained in piano, violin and singing, but from the age of sixteen I started to compose rock and pop songs. In the last few years, I have been lead vocalist in an electronic band and I am now working on an electronic solo project. I write, produce and perform as a pianist/vocalist at special events. I believe in providing a full-on creative education. Nothing is more uninspiring than lessons full of rules. Of course, there are some basic principles to be guided by when learning music, but once you have those then you will have a lot more freedom. My repertoire covers Mozart, Brahms, Bach, jazz standards (Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald etc.), classic rock/pop (The Beatles, The Stones/David Bowie/Kate Bush etc.) and chord chart learning/composition.

Danny - Antwerp, Belgium$38
Trusted teacher: English Translation: contact me please Everybody generally consists of chords and lines of text. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hit or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you play 'what' guitar or piano, then you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antenna 's are always open :-) and for some it's a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and 2 sixes lines - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can get strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all, I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to write my science about songs, share it with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book with me for an hour. Then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

The kind of music you love most will be the focus of the course, their codes and secrets will be the focus of our study, that's what I want to share with you. We can do technical lessons and simply learn together how to play one or more songs of your choice or mine, enrich your game with this approach and your repertoire! (For example: We can re-arrange the pieces and make them more original as by approaching the system (CAGED), and enriching their chords, resulting in new positions, new techniques and new sounds, using arpeggio techniques rather than strumming for 4-chord pieces, voicing and fingerstyle techniques, in short, expanding the instrument's playing fields and playing skills to keep progressing in your game and improve your rehearsals ...) If you make a request, this program is obviously accompanied by the pleasure of learning more in theory and being able to directly apply new knowledge on its instrument and identify its common or rare use in the pieces discussed in class. In this case the theory is translated to be accessible to anyone, both for those who are connoisseurs and for those who discover everything from absolute zero. The exercises, songs and theoretical explanations offered throughout the program are organized in an order of progressive difficulty. In addition to the YouTube channel and its tutorial videos that will be useful for reviewing after class, I wrote and produced 2 books of my method to learn the guitar and the music, that I sell to accompany my course and your apprenticeship in the best conditions and so that you can continue the course even at home and to review etc ... . There is ONE BOOK OF COURSES containing all the theoretical and practical program of the year, as well as a BOOK OF EXERCISE on the ranges and the modes that you can obtain directly.

Composing music is very similar to writing novels. Of course there are "novels" and Novels...and the secret to create expressive, compelling, and successful ones is the ability to write with emotions, tension, and conflict. With music is exactly the same, and in order to to so, musicians needs to have "at arm's distance" all the tools and knowledge that will allow them "to sculpture the air in the performance into something" (F. Zappa) As a musician, have you ever wondered: what if I replace this A min. chord with an E min. 7 ? is it better to stay "Tonal" or go "Modal" on this measure? what if I establish a stronger emotional response by changing this scale fragment into a Phrygian? shall I drive more of a rhythmic feeling by leveraging quartal harmony? what chords could I actually ask the guys from my band to add to this measures so that my solo would sound more interesting? how can I phrase this better to that my songwriting drives a more melodic and fluid verse? If at least once in your "music lifetime" you asked yourself any of these questions without finding a satisfactory answer, this course might be right for you. Please contact me, and together we will discuss your needs, your goals, your challenges. Cheers, Max

Hi, my name is David. I'm originally from Glasgow, Scotland, but now live just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. I got my first song cut in 2007, and since then have had over 150 of my songs recorded by numerous artists in Europe. I pretty much write across the board and have had songs cut by Pop, Rock, Country, Americana, Blues, Electronic & R&B artists. I've even had one song recorded by an Opera quartet! Those songs have been on many hit albums and have spent a total of 21 weeks at #1 on the official charts of Switzerland & Austria. I’ve done all this WITHOUT being signed to a publisher, which means instead of giving away 50% of my royalties, I keep all 100% for myself! Whether you want to write songs to record yourself or for others (and those can be two very different things), I can help you. I'll tailor the lessons to fit you. We'll work together, perfecting your strengths and building up your weaknesses. I'll show you how to write memorable melodies, heartfelt lyrics and innovative chord progressions. I'll also teach you how today's music business operates. One thing I learned early in life is that if you want to learn something, learn from someone who has done it already. If you want to be successful in the music business, then learn from someone who has had some success themselves. If they haven't how can they show you how to do it? Just because someone has written hundreds of songs doesn't necessarily mean they know about songwriting. In my lifetime I’ve made thousands of meals for myself, but I’m still a lousy cook! It’s not how many songs you write that’s important - it’s how many good ones you write. With me, you'll learn how to write songs that stand out from the rest. There's a craft to writing great songs. We all love that initial burst of inspiration when ideas come quicker than we can write them down, but once that burst is over, that's when the craft comes in. It's the craft that adds the polish and can turn a decent song into a great one. The trick is not to polish it too much, and not lose the thing that made you excited about the song in the first place. That's one of the things I'll teach you. Also, if you know how to craft a song, then Writer's Block really becomes a thing of the past. Success won't happen overnight, but if you’re willing to put in the work, I can show you how to get closer to making a very good living from your music. I’m not saying that I’m the best songwriter in the world. I’m just saying that I know how to write songs that get cut and I can teach you how to do it too. I'm always looking for good co-writers, so if there's anyone here who I think is talented maybe that will be something we can look at further down the line. I look forward to working with you.
What do you love to listen to? How do you create music that expresses the music that has deeply influenced you? The "how do you create that" is where technique, or music theory, shapes what compels you. There are a variety of techniques because there are a variety of sound possibilities (jazz, rock, classical, etc.). "In order to create that" music in your head, the basics of music have to be learned: pitch and rhythmical relationships. The most basic examples of pitch relationships are melody and harmony. If my availability works, I will gladly take in anyone who desires to explore all the basics and beyond. I greatly hope that any student considering lessons will read all of the information provided about myself on Apprentus. I will not begin a lesson with any student who does not answer the first five questions. Now, I believe I've covered enough ground for potential students to understand what my lessons will be about. So for now... enjoy the sounds and Au revoir!

Trusted teacher: Becoming a musician is not just about being able to read notes or having a rhythm in your blood. Making music is especially the desire to send a message of oneself to the spectators / listeners. So, be it the guitar, piano or just the composition of songs (lyrics, chords, structure) I do not ask for any necessary basis. However, if you wanted to learn how to read the notes or have a rhythm, this is possible as well. That is why I would adapt to the person who will be in front of me, in this case my student, to be able to give him at best an interactive and rewarding course.

Barbara - Montreal, 10, Canada$27
Trusted teacher: Who is this workshop for? For all curious about sound, all music, music in general, who wants to manufacture, build, examine ... (from 12 or 13 years). Should one know the music theory? Not necessarily. But familiarity with music of various styles can be a great help. DJ? Electro music? No ! We will not learn here to be a DJ or to compose "dance-music", "electro" music in the commonly understood sense, or even songs. Should I know the computer? It's better if that's the case, but learning can be done at the same time as music research. Is it necessary to have a computer? Yes ! A "workshop" rather than a class? The course takes the form of a practical workshop, listening sessions, critical works. By computer? Everything happens on computer once recorded sound elements of all kinds. Editing, transformation, mixing on software designed for this. No software required. The proposed route can be adapted to any multitrack sequencing software. The computer is only a tool, it is the composer who makes the music. Practically what do we do? The composer works "with the sounds" that he has most often recorded himself. He chooses them, assembles them, deforms them, mixes them according to his project, according to his his intuition, his ideas and desires, gradually builds a music. For those who want it and need it, exercises are proposed which allow to approach at the same time techniques of realization and specific musical proposals. Composition / Invention It is not a question of declaring oneself all composers, but of asserting that one can all ask questions of composers, with, at the same time, seriousness and fantasy. To confront the game of a free invention. What musical orientation? What style ? This is a "musical research" approach: to seek to invent a music beyond the traditional values - heights of note, regular pulsations, instrumental timbres - without being forbidden to do all that. A "music of sounds", in the widest possible sense, a "music of all sounds "as opposed to what we might call obviously too simplified" a music of notes ". This choice, which apparently seems to shake up the musical uses, is nevertheless part of a tradition of more than a century and rich of a repertoire too little known and which had various names: - Electroacoustic Music - Concrete music - Acousmatic music - Contemporary music Finally, we each have a precious tool to never forget: our ear, and a fascinating and rewarding work to drive, questioning oneself.
