MarcoMusic Production and Theory: Everything you need to know.
My name is Marco, and I am an Italian composer and sound designer working and living in Amsterdam. I studied Classical and Experimental Composition at the Conservatory, and then Communication Sciences and Technologies, and Sound Design at the University. After that, I spent the last 8 years producing music and sounds for advertisement, short movies, tv shows, documentaries, theatre, art installations, and so on.
This gave me a broad knowledge of how to write music in every different style, and how to do that fast.
This class starts with my experience, but I really want the students to build their own personalized plan, choosing on which of these areas to focus on:
-Arranging for Orchestra
-Introduction to Piano
-Introduction to Music Softwares (DAWs) and Plugins
-Electronic Music and Beats Production
If you need to take lessons at certain times excluded from my timetable feel free to contact me anyways and let's see what we can arrange.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Luís TassoBassoon (Baroque/Classical and Modern), Theory, and Composition Lessons
I am a bassoonist and composer from Australia who is available to tutor in Amsterdam. I teach not only the ordinary modern bassoon but also historical performance, whether that would be on period instruments or otherwise. I am also available to tutor music theory and composition for all levels.
I have won prizes in both bassoon and composition, including the Royal Schools Music Club Anniversary Scholarship, the Bendat Family Foundation Composition Scholarship, the Royal Over-Seas League Arts Travel Scholarship, and the Catholic Arts Chapman Scholarship.
I have also been part of a variety of ensembles, including the MAPLE wind quintet, Tura New Music's Breaking Out Ensemble, and orchestras in Australia. I have had the incredible opportunity to write and arrange for many ensembles with very different instrumental combinations such as Piñata Percussion, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of St George's College, and Trinity College, Perth.
As a teacher, I strive to develop students to become inspired by music and to always seek a deeper understanding and appreciate of music. I am open to teaching any student so long as they can hold an instrument comfortably!

DannySONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please
SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. 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 already play the guitar or piano, 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 antennas are always open :-) and for some it is 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 minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve 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 share my knowledge about how to write a song 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 an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'?

IvanDJ class with a professional and passionate
With 10 years of experience on all DJing media and in different places in French-speaking Switzerland and abroad, it is with great joy that I transmit my knowledge and my passion for music.
I am also very active on the Internet, with four sets of mixes, one publication per week.
I developed a basic course of about 5 hours, ideal for beginners, to share the knowledge that I myself took 10 years to assimilate as an autodidact.
At the end of this training, you will have everything in hand to realize your dream and mix in public.
In addition to revealing the secrets that make the difference between good and bad DJ, I will also teach you how to discover music, where to get it and how to organize it.
You would save money because I will tell you exactly how to choose your equipment according to your needs and where you get it at the best price.
The students are all very satisfied with this course that I gave actively between 2012 and 2015 (see the pictures to read the reviews).

Lou-IndigoGuitar / Bass / Ukulele / Theory - LOUKELELE MUSIC ACADEMY -
REGISTRATIONS JANUARY 2020 OPEN !!!
The course that I propose is BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH, with a chain YOUTUBE and VIDEOS TUTOS, as well as 2 BOOKS.
Age and musical taste is not restrictive when in the program, you can with qualitative daily work (not quantitative) quickly observe your progress.
Here the pleasure of playing music is put forward.
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.
