Michele
Music Composition, Music Theory, Harmony, Analysis, History of Music
If you’d like study music theory to learn a new powerful language, or if you’d like create your own music; a good music theory knowledge could help you to learn more about “how music work” and “how manage your ideas”. It could be really helpful if you are considering to get admission at Conservatoire because Music Theory/ Ear Training/Solfege/Harmony/Analysis Test can required a really good training. I like customise didactic method on every student, my background is academic but I try to take in account needs of every young musician. I got my BA Degree - Music Composition in Italy at Conservatorio Alessandro Scarlatti.

Zuzanna
Singing and Piano lessons, Music lessons for children and adults
My name is Zuzanna, I'm a polish singing teacher, piano teacher, and music therapist. I'm a graduate of the School of Jazz and Popular Music in Wroclaw (piano class) and Academy of Music in Katowice - Jazz and Popular Music department in signing class. I'm a graduate of Music Academy in Wroclaw, my major being Music Therapy. Music is my passion. Usually, I play the piano and sing at the same time. My main goals in singing lessons are to develop a passion for singing and to learn to use your voice healthy. The SINGING classes include: - interpretation of the song - articulation and intonation exercises - breathing exercises - technical exercises (voice production) - improvisation - singing with accompaniment If you play the instrument and sing we can also focus on how to combine it. I offer PIANO lessons depending on their skills and needs: - to people of all ages - for beginners and intermediate users - classical music/jazz music/pop music - learning chords and playing by ear - music theory (solfege, harmony, chord learning, ear training, etc.) CHILDREN'S MUSIC. The classes are aimed at general music. We can focus more on singing, piano, or also music therapy - it depends on your needs. The classes include musical games and exercises. Children can develop their singing, sense of rhythmic, auditory skills. We can make music together! If you are interested, please feel free to contact me!

Eloi
Drum lessons (ensemble playing, ear training and more!)
The drumset is one of the most important and powerful instruments in a music ensemble. It does not only provide the rhythm and groove foundation for all the other instruments - it also defines the sound of the band, the character of the songs, the volume... just like an orchestra conductor. In these lessons (which are of course personalized and open depending on the interests of the student) we will work beyond the physical/mechanical aspect of the drums (technique, coordination, etc) into the musical aspect, so we will spend some time listening and analyzing music together, working on ear training and music theory from a practical point of view.

Luc
Electronic Music Production (Ableton, Beatmaking, Sound Design, Recording, Mixing)
I can help out beginner to intermediate producers. We can start all the way from the beginning or focus on specific topics that you would have questions about. I can teach you to produce tracks in an intuitive way without the use of music theory but can also incorporate the basics of music theory in the lessons. I’m specialised in sound design, playing live sets on stage and developing the identity of artists. It helps me to get intermediates to the next level. When you want to start with music production you need to work in a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). I work mainly with Ableton because it's very intuitive and "jammable". It's a great DAW to work in, especially for beginners. Preferably my lessons will be focused on Ableton but I can also work in other DAW's because the fundamentals are mostly the same in all of them. The following aspects will be covered in Ableton Live: 1. The Basics (overview of the layout) 2. Arrangement, session and clip view 3. Working with sequencers and MIDI 4. Recording and routing 5. Audio and MIDI effects 6. How to work with the built-in instruments in Ableton Live. 7. How to go from a basic beat to a finished track. 8. Mixing and mastering 9. The basics of music theory 10. Intermediate: sound design, synthese, synthesizers, sampling, field recordings 11. Intermediate: developing your own liveset with MIDI controllers, drumcomputers and synthesizers 12. Intermediate: developing your own sound and identity If you have any question, don't hesitate to message me!

Kate
Music Tuition: Piano, Music Theory and Composition lessons
Hi, I'm Kate! I've taught piano, music theory and music composition since 2014, and I'm studying music at masters level at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I pride myself on my empathetic and patient approach, while also encouraging students to do their best and aim high. My students have gone on to do well in their exams and win competitions. Don't hesitate to get in touch for a trial lesson! It's never too late to start to learn music, or pick it up again.

Mykola
Piano and vocal teacher with unique methods of teaching.
I teach my students according to a methodology that is based on physiological training. It includes a new: playing technique - which provides rhythmically accurate sounding of all notes regardless of the finger you touch the key with, allows you to maximize the volume range, allows you to control the sound as much as possible and play very quickly; the method of teaching singing - allows you to teach proper breathing, sing with an open and covered sound, natural vibration, corrects diction, develops a sense of rhythm, hear and sing accurately, teach vocal speech: maximally lengthen vowel sounds and shorten consonants; the method of teaching reading from a sheet - allows you not to disassemble the works, but to play immediately as we read books, look at the notes and hear music; special exercises to relax the muscles and prevent flirting hands, clamping ligaments (bird).

Quentin
Learn the guitar in a different and intuitive way
This course is above all there to make you want to play the guitar, let it be a pleasure! It will be based on the practice of the instrument, on the understanding and role of the guitar. The theory will be based on the progress of the practice. Step by step, practice and theory will thus be complementary, and will necessarily be useful! Have you always dreamed of being able to play the guitar? it's time to get started!

David
Guitar Lessons for Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced Players
It´s important to me to plan the guitar lessons based on your likings, goals and skills to make the learning as enjoyable and lasting as possible. Which genre do you like the most? Where are you making great progress and where are you still struggling? Based on your interests I teach acoustic/ electric guitar, pop, rock, blues and fingerpicking and if you want, I can teach you some classical/Jazz pieces as well, I´m not an expert at the last two genres though. Furthermore I will teach you the reading of tabs and sheet music. How are chords built and how do I write a song? With more advanced players I will dive right in to the wide field of improvisation. In a typical lesson we will play the guitar together (I will always have my own with me), put the song you´re playing on a speaker and play along, jam together, sing together (only if you want) and you will get a copy of the sheets so you can practice at home. If that sounds good, write me a message! I´m looking forward to hearing from you!

Piano Lessons for Beginner-Advanced Levels in Classical and Contemporary Styles
I am a professional pianist offering private piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. As a pianist 12 years of teaching experience and over 21 years of playing, I enjoy motivating my students with music of their own preferred style and interest, whether that be classical or contemporary. My main goal is to promote a positive experience and love for music-making during the course of learning piano. If the student is interested in a more serious approach, I can also guide preparation for grades 1-8 of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams. For example, in the last year my students have achieved highest marks in the ABRSM exams as well as prizes in various competitions. My own studies are as follows: I have obtained two postgraduate degrees at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp: "Concertsoloist" in Piano Performance and "Chamber Music." Prior to this, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Piano Performance/Music from University of Minnesota and TCU-Fort Worth, TX, USA. My experience includes collaboration with many different instrumentalists and singers, performing as soloist with orchestra (also as harpist), and receiving top prizes in several competitions. While maintaining my performance and recording career in Belgium at present, I am developing my private music studio and look forward to meeting new students.

Online piano lessons for everybody: from any starting level with any set goal!
Learning to play the piano is a wonderful and very diverse experience! Every beginner has to go through it in their own special way in order to realize one's personal aspirations. But sometimes, unfortunately, due to a lack of guidance and direction, the learning process may cause some difficulties followed by unexpected disappointment. If you are in need of said guidance, if your learning experience is not that captivating or satisfying anymore, you don't have to turn away from your dreams of playing the piano - I will gladly help you to get closer to them in a fun and enjoyable way in our lessons! After finishing music school with the highest grades twice as well as a number of additional courses (improvisation, composition, orchestras, etc.) and after honing my teaching skills for more than 4 years, I can safely say that my lessons may prove useful to any type of student with any kind of given objective at hand. No matter your age, your previous experience, or background, you just need to name me your personal goal, task, or even a dream - be ready to dedicate a little time and effort, and I will take care of all the rest. Learning your favorite song, getting prepared for a concert, or simply improving the skills you already possess - in music, everything is possible and achievable, and I'll be more than glad to prove it to you in our lessons.

Piano Lessons with the Best Colombian Young Pianist!
Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia. I have a Master's degree from Liszt Ferenc in Budapest, Hungary, and a Master's degree from Columbus State University in the United States. Besides my career as a pianist, I have over 10 years of experience in teaching Piano, music theory, and history for all ages and categories. Even if you are a beginner we can make it! I have a personal method where I combine both classical and commercial repertoire depending on the student’s preferences. I usually play four hands with my students as well and organize at least one concert a year with all my students where they can meet and share their experiences. If you are an enthusiast about piano competitions, we can also work on that together. I will guide and support you through all the steps of the learning experience.

Giorgia
Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.
