Piano Lessons for beginners and intermediate. All styles and genres

Piano lessons for beginners and for those who would like to play as a hobby.
I created a special program for students who want to play any kind of music (popular, jazz, classical), but can't spend a lot of time studying.
You will learn how to read and play sheet music and chords. We cover the basics very fast so you will start playing your favorite songs right away.

I also cover some theory that helps a better understanding of what you are playing. In this way the skills you get can then be used for playing other instruments, composing and songwriting.

That means a dynamic class in which you will learn the basics fast enough to be playing some songs in just a couple of classes. The final goal of this program is for you to be able to read and play chords and sheet music, such as jazz standards, songbooks, and musical theater scores.

I also teach music theory, from solfeggio and harmony to orchestration and composition.

Alan is a great teacher and super nice guy. He pay extra attention to your problems with piano and try to fix them using smart and innovative methods. I like the fact that he sometimes doesn't stick to the 60 mins and ask to extend it if he feels something is missing or incomplete. I already had 7 lessons with him and looking for more. Highly recommended.

With this lesson, you will learn everything you need to know to be able to write, copy, arrange, and compose music scores, from baroque to contemporary music writing. You will also learn to create and engrave professional scores and parts as well as good quality digital performances of your works, using MIDI language and music libraries.

(Analysis, notation, history - Composition and arrangement for all levels. (Harmony, melody, composing processes, orchestration) - Ear training and solfeggio.

I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical. After years of studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing and singing. Music is like language,so I start by teaching how to connect the voice with the instrument. In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I've been learning music since I was 3 years old and recently I've graduated with a Master Degree at the Conservatorium Van Amsterdam.
