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.

About Me

Hi fellow rhythm lover!

My name is Alex, originally from Croatia.
I'm a drummer, percussionist, composer and programmer.

I'm currently focusing on performing solo enhancing drums and percussion with electronic creations. But I'm also working as a live and studio drummer in the fields of electronic, hip-hop, jazz, pop music & more. Active as a teacher, available for workshops, Skype lessons and private lessons in Amsterdam.

I started my musical journey playing the piano (7 years old) at a local music school but was always fascinated by rhythm. Got into playing drums when I was 16, then I realised that's gonna stay for life. I developed a deep interest in jazz music and Karnatic (South Indian) music so I decided to move to a specific place in Italy (Vicenza) where was possible to study drums and take tabla & indian music lessons. After diving deeper into jazz and playing with artists from all over the world mostly improvised music, I decided to explore a new field of interest - electronic music. Again, I found a place in Europe that offered the best education in the field of electronic (specifically live-electronics) music and that offered me the opportunity to continue my Indian studies while still playing the drums. Here in Amsterdam I had to privilege to study with some wonderful people and to connect with so many cutting-edge artists. Definitely staying here indefinitely! :)

Education

Conservatorium Van Amsterdam - Master in Live Electronics.
Conservatorio Di Vicenza - Bachelor in Jazz Drums.
Specialised in Karnatic rhythms: "Applying Karnatic Rhythmical Techniques to Western Music"- Conservatorium Van Amsterdam

Reviews (1)

He is a very competent instructor. The lessons have been going pretty good.
My approach to teaching drums is focused on developing a strong understanding of rhythm in general and applying it on the drum set. I will customise my teaching approach to your needs, depending on the level of your playing and your musical desires. I'll give my best in each lesson to guide you step-by-step into becoming a better musician/drummer. You can learn about: - Polyrhythms - Groove - Technique - Macro & micro timing - Drum sounds for different genres/applications - Controlling dynamics between different limbs - Rhythm singing (konnakol) - Reading complex musical notations - Composing mathematically harmonious/inharmonious rhythms And much more... Starting from beginner, up to experienced drummers. I'm also giving rhythm lessons to non-drummers, just to anyone interested in getting to know more about the rhythmical concepts of South India - the most advanced rhythmic system on planet Earth!

Arduino/PCB/electronics/mechanical project mentoring
Do you wish you could build things with electronics and mechanical components? Maybe your house needs a web-connected doorbell, or you want to publish your air quality measurements to the web. Or maybe you're already experienced and you have an automatic cat flap opener or motion-triggered foam dart shooter? Whatever your home electronics/mechatronics project, I can help you get started, improve, or complete it. I have extensive professional experience designing electronic circuits, PCBs, and the software to control them, and I've tutored privately for years as well. The way I work is to help you solve your most pressing and confusing issues during our class, then give you a short lesson to help you understand better what to do next time, and then leave you with some homework tasks you can do in your own time to progress your project - this saves you money and gives you a better competency result! I have a 3D printer, a metalworking shop, and all the benchtop tools we might need to develop your projects, as well as some generic arduinos, breadboards, and passive components - all you need to provide is (some of) the specific materials for your project.

I like to have a peaceful atmosphere during my lessons, so every student feels confident and relaxed. I'll be happy to introduce you to new compositions and musicians of your interest. I want my students to enjoy music and have fun with it rather than treat it as a science! I can teach classical and pop music, improvisation and help you practising orchestra and chamber music excerpts. I welcome everyone to have lessons with me, no matter what age or level you have. If you have any questions about my lessons, I'll be happy to answer them!
