    Learn how to use your voice correctly and how to improve your natural voice. Stay at home and keep singing guys!)
    Hey there, I am Vera, a singer, composer and a vocal coach, a member of NATS(National Association of Teachers of Singing, USA) if you also adore music and singing I would be glad to help you in developing your skills! I prepared students for entering the New York Film Academy to the program "Musical Theatre". Also, I prepared many recitals of my students and their bands in Ukraine, Poland, Canada, Israel, USA, Indonesia, Germany, etc..., recorded a few EP, have clips available on music channels, also perform their songs on the radio. Some of them have their own youtube channels and we are developing it choosing interesting songs for cover. Others write their own songs and have a contract with the music labels in the USA, and I always support these skills. Speaking of my personal achievements I can say that I am a singer and songwriter, I work in several styles- house, lounge, jazz, country, and pop, collaborate with musicians, sound engineers, and producers from many countries. I have experience of writing arrangements and working with professional musical programs such as Cubase, Nuendo, and others, also I worked a lot as a session vocalist in the many recording studios in Ukraine. So I can share my knowledge with you. My methods are directed to get the result as soon as it`s possible and also to develop your natural music skills. That`s why I use the most effective exercises in my work special for each student. Also, my methods are loyal so the student can sing his favorite songs at the lesson and enjoy it. See you at the lessons!

    Ableton & 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.

    Guitar Performance
    I've played guitar for over 10 years, and have taught many people during that time. I prefer to play by ear, so i can help you develop your own musical ear, which unlocks the ability to improvise, jam with other musicians, and understand music to a deeper degree. Bring me a song you'd like to play, and we'll work through others to help build upon the techniques you'll need to be able to play freely and accuratley, the music you'd like to play.

    Violin for everyone! ABRSM or Trinity are possible
    :) Hello! I've studied at the Royal Conservatoire where I followed the “Master in education”. I teach at a studio in the city center or at your place if you wish. I can also do online lessons if you like the idea. I graduated cum laude in my country and specialized in violin education here in Den Haag. I attended masterclasses and workshops with many celebrated musicians. As an orchestral violin player, I toured all over the world from Europe to China, and played with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Wayne Marshall, John Axelrod, Pascal Rophè and many others. As a teacher, I have been teaching full-time from 2015 and got very good experience ever since. I have familiarity with all the most common syllabi such as Trinity, ABRSM or Suzuki. I like using technology but also new repertoire with different styles in my classes, I generally follow and develop my own pupil's musical interests. If you are a total beginner without any experience or an advanced musician, this class is suited for you! :)

    Ukulelen unterricht / Ukelele lessons. Lernen Sie Ukulele spielen.
    Nicolás (DE) Gitarrenlehrer aus Buenos Aires, Argentinien. Als Gitarrenlehrer verfügt er über mehr als 15 Jahre Erfahrung und hat sich auf klassische Musik von der Renaissance bis zur Musik des 20 Jahrhunderts spezialisiert. Er hat auch Erfahrung in Tango, Jazz und Bossa Nova. In seinem Unterricht können Sie die Musik von Josquin des Prez bis zu Heitor Villa-Lobos kenner lernen, einschliesslich Piazzolla und The Bealtes. Er studierte an den wichtigsten Konservatorien in Buenos Aires. Er erhielt zwei Diplome als Lehrer und Hauptlehrer. Zurzeit absolviert er einen Masterstudiengang für Alte Musik (Instrumente der Lautenfamilie) an der Zürcher Hochschule der Künste. In den letzten zehn Jahren war er regelmässig als Solist und mit verschiedenen Ensembles in den grossen Konzertsälen der Stadt Buenos Aires zu hören. Er ist auch in Paraguay, der Schweiz und Italien aufgetreten. Im Jahr 2009 gründete er die Camerata Argentina de Guitarras (Gitarrist und künstlerischer Leiter 2009-2019). Im Jahr 2014 veröffentlichte er sein erstes Soloalbum "Morro de Saudade". Nicolás (EN) Classical Guitar Teacher from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is currently living and studying in Zürich, Switzerland, doing a Master’s Degree program in early plucked string instruments at the ZHdK with Eduardo Egüez. He studied in Buenos Aires with Marcela Sfriso and Eduardo Isaac. As part of his training, he also took several courses and seminars with renowned guitarists, such as Pablo Márquez, Eduardo Fernández, Walter Ujaldón, and Miguel de Olaso. In the last ten years, he was featured regularly as a soloist and with different ensembles in the main concert halls in Buenos Aires city, such as CCK, Usina del Arte and Centro Nacional de la Música. He has also performed in Paraguay, Switzerland and Italy. In 2009 he founded the Camerata Argentina de Guitarras (guitarist and Artistic Director 2009-2019). In 2014 he released his first solo album "Morro de Saudade”. He has made national and international premieres of Latin-American composers such as Leo Brouwer and Javier Farías, with an ensemble and as a soloist. We can work in any kind of songs, strummings, fingerpicking, fingerstyle My classes are for: -Amateurs and advanced students. -Kids, young people, and adults. I can teach in English, Spanish, and High German. More about my classes My guitar teaching model is based on books and the approach of guitarist and pedagogue Abel Carlevaro. In some way, it is about understanding and analyzing the nature of the movements we make to play the guitar or ukelele in the simplest way possible. Just as to build a building you need a good foundation, to build a system of skills that allows us to be musicians, we need to know and practice in a conscious way all the movements we do. These movements are what we do when we play just one open string or what we need to do to play the most difficult piece of the repertoire. After getting to know and listening to how my students play I propose a short and medium-term work plan. This plan is presented taking into account the objectives and wishes of each student. Exercises and pieces are included that will also allow to know the repertoire of the guitar. Therefore, each work plan includes specific and general contents.

    Music Mixing Engineering for All levels - Learn how to get the best sounds from your recordings.
    Mixing a recorded music is the art to connect musical ideas to emotions. Whether it is your music or someone else’s recordings, I’ll help you develop your skills in order to give the perfect “make up” to any song. But what exactly is Music Mixing Engineering? Imagine that you recorded drums, bass, keyboard, guitars and vocal. Now you have to put everything together and be able to listen to all the instruments with perfect sonic separation. You need to match the emotional intention of the composer to the emotions of the listener. The decision to make the voice louder or not, bring the guitars to attention only in a specific moment of the song, specify the type of reverberation and so many other decisions is the responsibility of the one working on the mix. I’ll teach you all the 7 main steps for every successful mix and work in-depth each of those according to your development or previous knowledge. I’ll fine tune the lessons specifically for your needs. We can work with your recordings, but if you don't have one, don't worry. I'll bring multi-tracks recordings of different genres for you to learn and practice along. Common Questions: - Do I need to be a musician to mix a music? Although it certainly helps, you don't need to know how to play any instrument. - I don't have monitors or an acoustically treated room, can I learn anyway? For sure yes. You can use headphone and simple speakers like the one from your notebook, for example. Once you'll understand the techniques and develop your hearing, you move to the next level. - Which software (DAW) should I use? If you're starting now, I recommend Reaper or Logic Pro. If you're already experienced, any DAW of your preference. Book now and start learning from beginner to Pro the art of mixing.
