SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
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.

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I am naturally a patient man who takes his time for everyone. My passion was, is and remains music. Apart from that, during my life career I also participated in the commercial world, but music always called me back. My Taylor acoustic guitar is my dearest possession.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have an A2 / A6 Trade / Language diploma and followed a Private Marketing course afterwards. In terms of music: since childhood education singing by mother (singer) - guitar lessons ever from people who are no longer on this planet. I learned a lot from Marty Townsend (American with a list of achievements to tell you) that I worked with for many years. Fortunately that man is still alive but he is currently back in California. I did a lot of gigs, did a lot of studio work and in the meantime wrote a load of songs. Songwriting comes with the years, there is no real school for it.

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I have been playing guitar for more than 40 years but am still a young foal when I am allowed to make music. My mother was a celebrated singer (years back) and she has been playing music with me since childhood. I have sung with many groups and played guitar and sometimes also successful. Especially during the nineties I wrote songs for several artists and again some songs were successful. I am a partner at Sabam and I know the music scene through and through. May also be interesting for you - as a future 'apprentice'.
Over the years I have also worked as a Sales / Marketing / Publishing Manager and in recent years I have enriched myself with new information about promo and distribution of music.
Since a while I write back for the really big guys and I am hopefully waiting for the productions at the moment.
I have been teaching for about 10 years (a late calling) and so far with great pleasure. I like to meet new people and am socially oriented. Some of my students have already made it into the scene. It does not have to be your ambition to stand in the Sportpaleis. It is important that you get enough information and science during the course and especially that you enjoy it. Music is Fun.

I love students who make time for (their) music. If you are motivated enough, you need to realize that it does not end with 1 hour of learning. You really have to practice further on your own at home. I evaluate every progress and give you the necessary exercises so that you progress quickly. Whether you take things fast or less quickly, that does not matter. That is the advantage of private lessons. I adapt to you ...
If you do not own a guitar yet, I will also help you further, that is included in the service.

Amazing experience
Leer elke les zeker nieuwe dingen bij het voelt zeker niet als 'school' alles gaat op het tempo dat de leerling zelf aankan/wil, verder word er tijdens de lessen veel gepraat/gelachen. Met andere woorden een TOP leraar
Danny is een heel aangenaam en gemotiveerd persoon om les van te krijgen. Ik kijk uit naar mijn volgende lessen!
Geweldige leerkracht! Neemt de tijd en weet over wat hij spreekt en heel vriendelijk! Na 1 les ging alles al wat makkelijker! Ik kijk uit naar de volgende lessen.
Leuk mens die weet waarover hij spreekt.

GUITAR and ZANGLES: For beginners and advanced, young and old. Everyone receives a personal lesson plan and objectives. You don't have to know any nuts. The lessons take place in a pleasant demo room. At your own pace I will get to know you the guitar and its possibilities so that you can quickly play your favorite songs. If you come to sing, I will lift you to unprecedented heights through my knowledge and years of experience. I like to coach motivated people who can make time to develop musically. I expect commitment and then it can go quickly. Several students of mine are now enjoying some success in the music bizz. Partly because of their perseverance but also because of the training they received. I am a music coach and guide you in a pleasant, successful way through an educational period. If you want more details or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Musical greetings, Danny

Pop & Rock Singing Lessons & The Singers Club Luxembourg
Do you want to improve confidence, find out how your voice works and develop your technique... well you’ve come to the right place! I have been a professional touring singer with 'Mia and the Moon' for 12 years+ and have been teaching singers of all levels since 2012. I have studied the Estill method as well as Speech level singing, musical theatre, pop/commercial style and have formed my own unique style of coaching which consistently builds the confidence and skill set of my students. I cater to all ability levels and welcome absolute beginners. During lessons, we study anatomy, warm-ups, exercises, placement, repertoire and then stage confidence and putting all of the skills learned into songs and performance. My style is relaxed yet very informative and I aim for a student to see results quickly - but to enjoy the lessons enough to want to continue over a period of time. I also offer club nights, studio days and various workshops alongside one to one coaching. I offer lessons for any age.

Guitar / Bass / Ukulele / Theory - LOUKELELE MUSIC ACADEMY -
REGISTRATION SEPTEMBER 2019 OPEN !!! The course I propose is BILINGUAL FRENCH / ENGLISH, with a program adaptable to your desires / needs with the COURSE BOOK that I wrote and produced especially for my students. Age is therefore not restrictive when you will be able to work with qualitative (and not quantitative) daily work in order to quickly observe your progress and not sink into the frustration of a quest towards an absolute that seems vain and time-consuming. Here the pleasure of playing music is put forward. This is of course accompanied by the pleasure of learning more in theory and being able to directly apply new knowledge on his instrument and identify its common or rare use in the pieces discussed in class. Music theory is popularized 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 therefore in an order of progressive difficulty. 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 scales and modes that you can buy directly at home. The kind of music you love most will be the focus of the course, although I am particularly oriented in terms of metal / rock music and classical music in my style of play, I am a versatile ear and who appreciates a lot of very different (even contradictory) things. The writing of music and music theory are also two areas in which I am in my element and which allow me to travel transversally in music genres as different and varied as they are and to understand them, to learn them and therefore to retransmit their codes and secrets. You can play a guitar that I made available for the course, and you can also bring your own if you prefer. For bondage lovers the course can be given for 7-string / 8-string guitars. To finish I would like to add more personal that I am professional, dedicated to my profession of musician and teacher, I am always available to answer via message, mails, short videos or even for the following course, to students who contact me outside of class for a reminder or advice on a concept discussed in theory or a difficulty encountered in a piece :) /! \ CANCELLATIONS-REFUNDS-CONDITIONS /! \ For parents who want to put their children to music to occupy them: I advise you to make sure that the motivation comes from your child in the first place! I happened to be confronted with children who did not really want to take these courses and so I had to stop because lack of motivation of the child and boredom very visible! If for any reason whatsoever (on my side or yours) the classes are no longer given while you have paid for several lessons in advance, THE DIFFERENCE WILL BE REIMBURSED BY APPRENTUS, who stores the money and tells me pay per course (which you confirm). So no worries on that side! If we do not finish all the courses you ordered, the non-courses will be reimbursed BY THE SITE! Thank you for your reading and your interest if you have read so far. You can find here an indicative list of objectives that I propose in my program, which can adapt of course to your request. The general objectives of the course: --- Tuning / tuning and knowing his guitar: * Standard Tuning * Drop Tuning * Open Tuning * Adjust the optimal tension of the strings * Adjust the shaft axis * Adjust the action of the strings * Choose the strings adapted to the style of play / tuning * Change his strings --- Understand / Modulate / Choose the Sounds of an Amp / Effect Pedal: *Volume * Gain (Low / High) * Treble * Middle * Bass *Presence * Delay * Reverb *Chorus * NoiseSuppressor / NoiseGate * Wah * Octaver * Harmonizer * Etc ... -Know his chords: --- Know his scales and his modes * The Major Mode (7notes) * 3 Minor Modes (7 notes): Natural / Melodic / Harmonic * 2 Pentatonic Modes (5notes): Major / Minor * Blues Mode (6 notes): Minor Pentatonic + The "Blue Note" * 2 Modes of Triads (3notes): Major / Minor * 2 Triad Modes Seventh (4notes): Shift + 7th / Min + 7th * Phrygian and Phrygian Dominant Mode * Hungarian Fashion Etc ... --- Technique to the Pick / Plectrum / Tab / Pick (Electric Guitar): * Alternate Picking * Fast Picking / Tremolo Picking * Hybrid Picking * Palm Mute * Natural Harmonics * Pinch Harmonics * Artificial Harmonics * Shredding * Tapping * Sweep Picking * Legato Picking --- Strumming / Hand Picking (Acoustic Guitar) * "SnareDrum" percussion on the guitar * Arpeggios pinched with 4 fingers + thumb * Rasgueado (Flamenco Technique) * Generic Strumming * Fingerstyle Picking * Two-finger picking + Legato for fast melodies (eg a solo) -Play the metronome -Learn his favorite songs -Improvize solos - Understand and know the music theory -Theory of Harmony -Theory on the Melody -Theory of Rhythm

Singing lessons with certified teacher. Improve breaks, range and power. BEE VOCAL
Feeling like you're not using the full potential of your voice? I'm a certified voice teacher and I can help you with that. I am part of a worldwide voice community, The Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA) and I am regularly receiving training and being tested to be the best singing teacher I can be for you. Some of the teachers in this community I am part of, teach big names of the music industry. I have learnt directly from them. That means that when we have a lesson, you will be getting the same training as stars like Brandon Flowers (The Killers), Seal, Dan Reynolds (Imagine Dragons), Barbara Streisand, Michael Jackson, Brendon Urie (Panic! at the disco) many broadway artists and singers from all possible music styles have learnt with. In our lessons I will analyze your voice, define a goal for the lesson and trace a plan to achieve that goal. Then we will do vocal exercises that work almost like going to the gym, but for the muscles inside your larynx. Finally we will go through song application, and since I am also a singer/songwriter with a career of more than 10 years, I can help you with interpretation and stylistic choices. I want to help you start loving all aspects of your own voice. Working with what you have and improving what you can improve, never forgetting the most important thing which is to enjoy the experience of singing. obs: for kids under the age of 12, the lesson is less about learning the technique and more about getting familiar with music, with your voice, but in a fun and relaxing way.
