    Drumming and how to make your drums fit a composition

    Drums, as with bass guitar are the backbone of any good song, and the foundation upon which the music is built. Despite not being as famous as lead vocals or lead guitar. Drums in my opinion is much more fun, at all levels of performance.

    I will teach you how to play the drums, how to fit the style to the genre and we will learn by practice by breaking down the famous classics, and explain what part drums played to make these classics so good.

    We will use my electronic drumset, which is not as good as the real thing but is definitely good for starters. There are ways you can practice at home without a drumset as well. And we can expand later and rent a studio room, where I can jam with you on the guitar even!

    Extra information

    Bring your good spirits, and leave your pride outside. You can bring drumsticks if you'd prefer but I have some extra.

    About Me

    I am a software developer and a multi-instrumentalist; I play guitar (acoustic, electric, bass and ukulele), drums and keyboards. I have my own one-man-band project that I work on on-and-off. I've always enjoyed teaching. My fondest experiences have been things like teaching swing dancing and German to refugees, helping undergraduates with mathematics and programming.

    My approach to teaching is generally more hands-on with application of theory. I will dissect songs with you, and rhythm sections to show why this melody/rhythm is good as opposed to something else. I believe theory is indeed important, but in the end it has to be applied to an instrument. And the application is as fine an art as the theory. So I prefer to start from the application's side.

    Education

    I am a Data Scientist by profession, and I have a Masters degree in Computer Informatics with focus on NLP (Natural Language Processing). But music is much more fun to me, and I would love to make the switch soon if I can!

    Experience / Qualifications

    Music-wise, I have been playing guitar for 13 years, and drums and piano for 6 years.
    Arabic is the sixth most spoken language in the world. Spoken by about 420 million natives, and many more that know it as a foreign language for religious reasons. Arabic is known for its encompassing vocabulary, beautiful poetry, and a sense for the melodrama! I will teach you either Standard Arabic or Egyptian (your choice), with a focus on the amazing sides of the language and the culture such as poetry, great movies, TV, and so on. And of course we will hopefully have great discussions in Arabic!
    The Guitar is undoubtedly one of the most popular instruments of the modern age. It is so versatile and used in many genres ranging from Classical music, to Death Metal and even Electronic Music. I will teach you the basics of playing the guitar, and I'll spice it up later with my experience on composition and song-writing. We will learn by example through the famous songs that shaped our understanding of the guitar. Whether you prefer singer-songwriter style songs, or thrash metal we'll get there together. I will teach mainly using the guitar tablature format, we can do sheet music which is generally unneeded for anything besides classical, but I will need refresh my music sheet reading skills as I haven't had to read any in the last 10 years.

    Piano Lessons in Berlin, Mitte with a Professional Musician
    I'm currently studying with Dr. Yossi Reshef, and teaching a technique based on a free wrist, loose arms, weight play, motion control, and deliberate practice methods. Maybe you have hurts or technical issues while playing? that is a clear indicator for a wrong technique. It is actually possible to detect all kind of hurts and lead them back to techniqual mistakes. I know how to analyze your hand, arm and wrist motions and solve problems for you, also difficult passages can feel much easier suddenly. I'm a classical pianist, specializing in a repertoire of classical composers, such as Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Beethoven, Schubert, and Mozart, but I'm open to all Genres of piano music, whichever you would like to learn. Depending on your goals, we create a schedule for you to reach it. It is not essential for me on which level you are right now, you can either play for the first time or further advance your piano techniques. Beside piano technique, I can also teach you how to accompaign yourself or someone else singing, and how to easily arrange a song for piano. We can practice at my studio in Mitte close to U Französische Strasse with a Steinway&Sons Grand piano, or in my studio close to U Kleistpark, where I can teach also early morning or late evening.

Reading notes, deciphering, position of the body, working ranges - arpeggios - trills / work on the typical exercises of the Cortot school. Musical theory, how to build scales, alterations etc etc etc ...... We can tackle together the classical repertoire, the blues, some jazz, pop music ... Beginners and motivated children welcome.
