Learn Piano and Producing. Improvisation on the piano as a BEATMAKER.

You’re thought about producing your own music, but you have no idea where to begin. Beatmakers and piano players have different goals, so learn to improvise on the piano as a BEATMAKER

So why do we have to learn the piano from a classical standpoint when we're wanting to create awesome beats - whether that be beautiful piano beats, or just have a better understanding of chords and improvisation?

Cause here's the thing:

As a beatmaker, we create repetition.

We create loops which are on repeat over and over, and our goal is for these loops to be extremely catchy. (Also keeping in mind for our other instruments in terms of mixing for clarity.)

So in this course I cover with you:

- The basics of a piano to get everyone on the same page
- How keys, scales, and chords work
- Figuring out powerful chord progressions
- Thinking in terms of melodies and improvisation
- How to bounce around with your right hand
- Left hand techniques to add fullness to your composition
- Playing with both hands
- Popular note placement, counting beats, and different rhythms in the industry.
- How to stay motivated to practice piano as a beatmaker

I have been working in different fields of music almost all my life, My backround started in classic music and today I produce and work with different labels.


By the end of the course you will have an in-depth understanding of chords/scales, and be able to improvise on the piano.

From here on out, it's up to you to practice with this knowledge to take your productions to the next level!

Extra information

So, if you've decided this is really something you want to do, there are a few tools you'll need. Obviously a laptop or computer is essential, but
beyond that, there are countless programs and tools to get your music sounding sharp and modern.For a lesson I offer my mobile studio, software and different equipment .

Piano lessons with new methods and creative techniques for any ages.
As a graduate student in Piano Performance, I believe that music can bring color and light to everyone's life. I will teach my students to be creative and confident.

Danny
SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please SONGS generally consist of chord and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hIT or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you already play the guitar or piano, you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antennas are always open :-) and for some it is a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and minor input - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can achieve strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to share my knowledge about how to write a song with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book an hour to get started. That is the scan hour. Are we lying together and is there a click? If you book and I confirm, then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

Ivan
MAO class with a hyper-creative professional named Costals
I published music under the names of Gelivan and Costals. An album and EP in 2017 as Gelivan, then singles in 2019. In 2020 I will release a project a month, minimum, with several videos. My mission is to live music by December 31, 2020 with a prosperous income. I want to be a major player in the world of music and help young people to progress, excel and live. I have an approach that does not dwell too much on the technique, I work rather on the optimal conditioning to become a prolific creator while having fun. Our meetings, associated with your motivation and your daily constancy, will lead you to develop your creativity and will bring you an unequaled satisfaction. It is important that you are strongly determined to make the most of my support. I suggest we see each other once a week, ideally the same day at the same time to make it easier. To create my music, I mainly use Ableton Live, and I highly recommend this same program to my students. I also create a lot of sketches on my iPhone with the Auxy app. Suggestions of habits to develop to become a prolific creator and create a music of your own: - devote at least 10 minutes every day to musical creation - collect sounds that you find interesting - you can record what surrounds you with your smartphone, sample movie dialogues, bits of other music etc. - create a reference playlist with your favorite songs (the most varied possible) - listen actively for 15 minutes of different music, be attentive to the different elements and make notes on what touches us, several listening by focusing on different elements.

Piano, Keyboard and Music Theory (For Trinity Exams also)
Online learning is the most suitable method of learning because it reduces the travel time and it also helps to avoid the hindrance of group learning. Students can learn with individual attention which will help them to correct their mistakes soon and accurately. They can have more knowledge about international music.The student will be given assignments regularly to keep in touch with what they learn. Those assignments are not so complicated and everyone can do that. Depending on the student's interest, he/she can appear for the Grade Exams conducted by Trinity College London. If the student is willing to learn music as a hobby, that is also accepted. Students can have flexible timings and they can attend the class on any day. Students can learn with their own instrument so that they may have the comfort and ease while learning. They are free to contact and ask doubts anytime.
