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!

So, I have time for new students for music theory, piano, improvisation, composing, music production on Ableton, and singing. From beginner to advanced levels, you all are more than welcome ! Helping others to discover their musical tendencies is my superpower, it’s been a desire for years. When I do a music lesson, I firstly observe their strong side and help them feel in touch with that. I create a personal working journey for every other student and do teach what they want to learn through the easiest way they can internalize a simple idea, making music with more than 14 years of experience in the music education field,. I’m here For beginners who want to learn basics in music theory & harmony, improvise on the keyboard & piano, create chord progressions on your own, understand the logic behind composing & producing, and know actually what they are doing on your own productions. For advanced, to freshen up your knowledge, get deeper on a subject, or gain another perspective towards your musical approach. Worldwide for online lessons or private in Amsterdam. Don’t be shy, please get in touch ! WHO IS SHE? My name is Lora, I am a classically trained pianist with a degree in Composition & Performance.

In the last fourteen years, I have worked with students of all ages and from different levels.

Spring course with Java/Kotlin, Postgresql/MongoDB, REST Api, Spring Security, J2EE Authentication, Angular web app, Ionic 4 mobile apps
Hi. I'm a senior software developer from Iran with over 15 years experience in software development. I'm in a business trip to Netherlands on mid July for a short period of time (almost 60 days) and I decided to conduct programming courses as besides my work mostly to cover some of my expenses though I'm eager to gain new experience working with local young students who are enthusiastic to learn programming skills. To said that, I tried to setup the course fee as low as possible and make it feasible for any interested person to take. I think it will be a great opportunity for both of us to have it. Here is brief bio about me and my working experience: I've been working and teaching programming for long time and the way I deliver contents is totally unique from my perspective because I always leverage my experiences to give my students a real practice on subjects while they get to know the core concepts behind each subject. I've been doing corporate training for about 2 years for 500 fortune IT companies and I perfectly know the standards and methods for teaching. I believe this is the time for everyone who wants to enter to programming era to learn the connected concepts all together in a practical way, therefore I sit down with my student and let him/her to practice along with me all new concepts and assist him/her to get the result as I do. All with practice and real life examples and projects. I also give my students an extra bonus to complete their tasks at home and send me their code for review out of the class without any extra charge. This actually means they extend the training hours event far more than the amount it's mention in course descriptions. At the end, I'm ready to refund the whole money if my student feel not satisfied with my service. I also have a flexible timing schedule which makes my students to book their class at their favorite time. Last but not least, I can customize the course contents based on your age and your backgrounds, so don't worry and contact me for more advise before you take my course. Good luck and hope to hear from you.

Electronic Music Production (Ableton, Beatmaking, Sound Design, Recording, Mixing)
I can help out beginner to intermediate producers. We can start all the way from the beginning or focus on specific topics that you would have questions about. I can teach you to produce tracks in an intuitive way without the use of music theory but can also incorporate the basics of music theory in the lessons. I’m specialised in sound design, playing live sets on stage and developing the identity of artists. It helps me to get intermediates to the next level. When you want to start with music production you need to work in a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). I work mainly with Ableton because it's very intuitive and "jammable". It's a great DAW to work in, especially for beginners. Preferably my lessons will be focused on Ableton but I can also work in other DAW's because the fundamentals are mostly the same in all of them. The following aspects will be covered in Ableton Live: 1. The Basics (overview of the layout) 2. Arrangement, session and clip view 3. Working with sequencers and MIDI 4. Recording and routing 5. Audio and MIDI effects 6. How to work with the built-in instruments in Ableton Live. 7. How to go from a basic beat to a finished track. 8. Mixing and mastering 9. The basics of music theory 10. Intermediate: sound design, synthese, synthesizers, sampling, field recordings 11. Intermediate: developing your own liveset with MIDI controllers, drumcomputers and synthesizers 12. Intermediate: developing your own sound and identity If you have any question, don't hesitate to message me!

Authorizations in ERP systems
In Erp systems authorization within a module often correlates with objects in another module. If this is not properly arranged, your authorization schedule is as leaky as a basket. And in practice, users can do a lot more than they should actually be able to. This is fraud sensitive and will never pass through an audit. That is why it is important to have this in order. And you can contact me for that!
