RolandPiano lessons Songwriting | Audio Production - The Stolk Method
Piano (all ages):
Learn to discover the piano in an intuitive and creative way on your level and from your interest. In addition to the basic, we dive into the world of:
- Pop & Jazz: play songs directly, scales, diagrams, harmonies, melodies, rhythm, swing.
- Improvisation: in this way you develop your ears in a playful way, your musical memory and musical vocabulary.
Learn how to bring a Song consisting of text and music (piano / guitar) to life and to a higher level by gaining more insight into: structure, structure, dynamics, contrasts, harmony, melody, rhythm, groove ....
Learn how to properly record an instrument and professionally produce a track in the in-the-box studio from start to finish.
- Recording: microphone placement, levels, reflections space.
- Mixing: editing, making balance, panning, making sound (plug ins)
- Mastering: the whipped cream on the audio pie, loudness, RMS, dynamics.
In my 'Stolk Method' the following components are central:
learn to use your ears, stimulate creativity, develop musical memory, expand musical vocabulary, not just blindflight on music notation, develop rhythm and timing, extend harmonic and melodic knowledge, increase sense of form and structure.
AlexAbleton & MaxMSP Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing, and mastering.
Max, also known as Max/MSP/Jitter, is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations.
Depending on your interest I will show you how to use and customise each program to your needs, but also show you how to combine the two in order to get the best of the 2 worlds.
Ableton and MaxMSP are a killer combo for anyone that wants to:
- expand their musical instrument with electronic extensions
- create custom made controllers for their live performances
- create complex automations for live or studio use
- produce music, compose, arrange
- create automated VJ sets to accompany their live performance
- create a live looping performance
- control backing tracks for live performances
- work on generative music
- program art installations
and much more
I will give you sets & patches with examples to accompany the lessons, but also help you build your own creations in MaxMSP or Ableton.
JordanComputer Tutoring on Ableton Live
Ableton Live is the reference software in terms of Computer Aided Music (MAO). Used by the biggest names in the industry, for both composition and live, it allows to adopt a fast and efficient workflow to convert all your ideas into music and that in a short time when you know the program well .
Before the course, I always ask what are your motivations, your favorite music genre, the music you want to produce as well as your ambitions in terms of career (hobby? Tours? Ghost-production?), The I set up a personalized course that meets your needs and trains you as quickly and as best as possible so that you have all the knowledge to start alone in the world of music production. Eventually, you'll be able to program your drums, bass lines, and synths alone, process the vocals you use in your songs, and finally mix your entire composition, using only the built-in effects of your songs. Ableton Live (or third-party effects if you already have one).
If you consider music production as more than a hobby, I also give music marketing courses (branding, distribution, visuals), which will allow you to create your digital identity and know the do's and don'ts of marketing music online to promote your music correctly (no spam, ...)
Finally, I'm Jay Dunham, I've already had the chance to sign compositions on labels such as Armada Music / Klash Records (NL), Black Sur Blanc (FR), No Thanks (FR), Pinnacle Collective (US / LA), Diverge (NL), Kinetik Records (BE)!

GillesBrussels singer-songwriter gives lessons on music production from A to Z!
MY MUSICAL PAST:
After many trips abroad, a training in jazz piano (Antwerp) and in "electronic music production" at the SAE (Brussels), I released in November 2017 my first EP titled "Into The Star" which allows me to to play on several Belgian stages including the Botanique last March. At the moment, I am working full time on my "artistic ambition".
My projects are mainly: the imminent release of my second EP "T.eye.M" and the desire to share my knowledge with ultra motivated people and passionate about music.
The objective of the training is that you will be able to EXIT A PROJECT ALL ONLY (composition - arrangement - mix - mastering - diffusion)
My method is characterized by a trip between two poles: objectivity and subjectivity.
Objectivity: Giving through the sharing of my in-depth knowledge on the subject as well as an interesting retreat, allowing to see the music industry as a whole.
Subjectivity: Giving through the sharing of my experiences and my artistic points of view on the music and the elements that produce it.
The desire to have students for several weeks allows me to know enough about them that to advise them at best in the paths they undertake.
The courses will therefore be a balanced mix between:
- Training in digital music / computer (MAO / ...)
- Training in acoustic music / instruments (piano, guitar, voice, ...)
Have you always wanted to have control over your entire production?
Do you have ideas in mind that you can not materialize?

PatrickAbleton Live - Getting your ideas down into a workable format to create a full working track! No prior knowledge needed!
I specialise in making music with the computer when there isn't a whole bunch of theory knowledge there. I can teach you to quickly and efficiently make that tune in your head into a reality, then turn that into a full track.
If you have tried a few tutorials or courses and they didn't fit with you because of all the engineering jargon and theory based approach, this course is for you! I learnt to make music because I was hearing all these songs in my head but wasn't good enough at any instrument to materialise them. Ableton allowed me to hash through ideas, jam with them, then finally turn them into a full working track. I have also worked as a live and studio sound engineer so I do have the theoretical knowledge but can communicate in the language of learners from all different levels.
I think there are a lot of people that just need to express what they have in there head and Ableton is by far the best program for that. It is very intuitive, "jammable" and so much fun!
For me Ableton is my instrument but I also play the drums, piano and bass.
