Inspiring Music Lessons: Ableton Live / Composition / Production / Guitar

Making your own music is a very personal practice that demands attention and care. It is comforting to learn the craft and to know what to focus on now and what to deal later in the process. This way you can let your creativity lead the way and take care of the technical details after on.

With this course, you'll learn the KNOW-HOW of making your own music from start to finish. We will go through; inspiration, composing, arranging, production, mixing, mastering, and release. You will understand the conceptual frame and the technical craft behind them. In no time you will start applying them to your own workflow as well, no matter what genre you are interested in, electronic, pop, jazz, indie, experimental, classical, and so on.

I try to make sure all my students leave the class with a new idea, a fascination, or a new question in their minds about whatever they want to do but most importantly with a smile. The music gathers people, and so is making it. That's why the lessons can flow into a conversation, a joke, a listening discussion, and a feedback session in which we become not only a teacher and a student but hopefully also friends.

Subjects we can focus on: Music Theory, Composing, Arranging, Ableton Live, Sibelius, Notation, Electronic Music, Synthesizers, Guitar(acoustic/electric), Piano, Mixing & Mastering

About Me

Making music started for me at the age of 8 with a small keyboard my aunt gifted me. I then went on to have piano lessons and not much after I started experimenting with the funny FX(effects) sounds in later presets of cheap keyboards to make my musical stories. At the age of 14, I started learning the acoustic guitar and after a year I moved on to the electric guitar with which I played in numerous pop-rock bands back in Istanbul. This was followed by me seriously getting interested in Jazz music and Composition. For that, I spent substantial time in Istanbul's jazz scene and then got accepted to Codarts in Rotterdam to study Jazz Composition where I had the opportunity to learn from all sorts of musical traditions from classical to Brazilian music, hip-hop to ambient...

I had written music of various genres, for acoustic ensembles, orchestras, and computers, and also for films and commercials. I also performed a lot with my electronics-based live sets in many different countries. Next to these artistic endeavors, I worked in a music school for 4 years, where I taught guitar, piano, theory, and composition lessons, individually to approximately 20 students of various backgrounds every week.

Most of the students I shared time with always left with glowing eyes and a smile on their faces, regardless of their age and skill level.

I now continue my Master's at the Institute of Sonology in the Hague, where I'm more focused on electronic music techniques, experimentalism, and sound research.

Yannis
Experimental electronic music composition / Free improvisation (theory & practice)
Experimentation is an inherent characteristic of electronic music. Nowadays, composing music using technology creates endless creative possibilities that demand the musician/composer to adapt to numerous technical and artistic challenges. Do you like experimenting with sound and making music that does not clearly belong to a particular genre or style? Interested in bringing a fresh perspective and out-of-the-box thinking to your music production? Are you just starting out in electronic music composition and wondering how to develop your own style? This course is just what you need. In this class, you will learn: - how to transform sound using analogue and digital techniques. - how to create sound structures and organise them in a DAW enviroment to compose a piece of music. - how to record, edit and mix sounds using both conventional and experimental techniques. - how to use improvisation in both the context of live performance and composition. - about the theory and practice of free improvisation. - about the history and origins of electronic music and how it affected the music we listen today. - how to document and communicate procedures related to your artistic practice. - how to create an artistic portfolio. Aspiring musicians with a background in any genre can take advantage of this course. A formal education in music or experience with electronic music composition are not required to follow. However, you should be unafraid of experimenting with sound and music technology! Each class is customized to meet the needs of the individual student in an innovative and flexible way! The course can also serve as a preparation for applying to several Dutch educational programmes related to electronic music composition (Institute of Sonology, HKU, ArtEZ, etc.). The class is focused on small assignments that help the student develop a sense of orientation and set goals. Recording, editing, and mixing will be done via the DAW "Reaper," but we can switch to your preferred software at any time. We will use the first lesson to discuss your background, interests, and motivations in order to develop a course structure that is tailored to your needs.

Custom music theory: general music theory, chord theory, etc.
As a conservatory student in Belgium and the Netherlands, I intensively studied solfège, rhythm and harmony (up to pastiche composition). In addition, with my experience as an accordionist and accordion teacher, I know how to connect theory with practice. From that perspective I teach custom music theory. This can help playing an instrument enormously! I guide you as a student in your self-chosen goals, for example: - be able to read music notes - improve rhythmic skills - train musical hearing - understanding music better: understanding chords - be able to write music according to a certain style in classical music (e.g. like Bach or Mozart) The lessons consist of theory (summarized in a course) and exercises. So all levels and all ages are welcome - we draw up a curriculum together and go on the road together. Free trial lesson (introductory meeting).
