Improvisation lessons for adults in a supportive atmosphere.

Does the thought of improvising frighten the life out of you?
Look no further.
I teach in a friendly, supportive and warm-hearted way. We start simply and easily, with various games and exercises. Sometimes we use sheet music, sometimes not.
I always try to draw on your strengths. Strengths that you may not even know you have.
My specialism is working with instrumentalists.
I have professional experience as a clarinet player, improviser and composer, in the UK and Belgium, and as a tutor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London.
I really look forward to helping you embark on a new musical journey.

Harmony and Classical Writing
This applied music theory course is for any passionate musician, regardless of level. It aims to broaden his musical knowledge and abilities by understanding music as a whole. The goal is to be able to decode and understand how a music (not only of classical style, but also pop, jazz, rock, electro, ...) was composed, and to be able to use interesting harmonies oneself. and solid in a personal composition / production. It is made up of two main topics: * Harmony (building chords, understanding chord diagrams, learning to Harmonize a given melody, the possibility or not of using these Harmonies in a given style, etc.). But also understand the key, how to build a scale, how to navigate between different keys, how to transform a classic chord suite into another style? Harmony is a course open to all and all levels, no prerequisites to have. Any passionate musician will find interest in it, that's guaranteed. * Writing is a much more targeted course, which is already an introduction to classical composition. In this branch, we will develop the rules of classical writing (parallel fifths and octaves, false relations etc, ...) within the framework of an exercise based on a given melody or bass (in the first case it will be necessary to invent harmonization and compose a bass, in the second, it will be necessary to invent the harmonization and the melody). This course can also be used by academy or conservatory students who wish to prepare for the writing exam, or simply to deepen their knowledge.

Piano lessons, composition, and MAO, home-based individuals
Hello, I am a pianist and composer. I offer private lessons piano and composition and MAO at home. I have 7 years of experience giving piano lessons, and I have proposed some strategies for different types of students. Are you a beginner? Are you afraid to enter the piano world? I offer you "flexible" songs for you, with simple harmony, maybe pop or classic. In this type, I would tell you how you can know and play as you want, it means, as you are a composer of this piece. Either you're a child or you're an adult, it's a chance to find out how you'll be in music. If the composer has chosen 1-6-2-5 progressions rather than 1-4-5-1, what does he mean and how are you going to interpret it? Have you played some time yet but still want to go further? Either the conservatory does not satisfy you enough, or does your teacher only tell you abstracts? When I was in the conservatory, very often, I heard that teachers say '' it's not music '' '' we have to sing '' but without clear explanations, without '' why ''. I have always thought, if you meet a doctor and ask him how you should do, he tells you that '' you must feel it '' '' you will find it '', will you stay with this doctor looking for another? For this guy, I like to introduce you to the possibilities of your pieces that you have played by time or why composers score like that. I always recommend, give composers a chance. I will explain why composers write them, with harmony (for example, chopin as master), equivalence between melody and harmony (Bach is genius in the case), use of bass (Beethoven), interpretation of epochs, yes, every era has its usual, for example, swing of jazz, the way to crescendo immediately shows at the end during classic, but gradually during post-romantic, it can reopen your eyes to Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Bach. Do you have a lot of experiences but you want to go further or produce your soundtracks? In this case, as I am also conductor, composer and I also do digital music. I can also show you some techniques that maybe you need in 2019. With DAW as Logic Pro X, either your tracks, Beethoven or Mozart Chopin Liszt ... or jazz. Language: French, English and Chinese If you are interested, it is with pleasure to give you lessons at home. I thank you for your reading. App

Cours de musique (formation musicale, harmonie classique jazz et pop/rock, histoire de la musique)
(FR au dessous) Music is universal. It's a truth we accepted, but we don't figure out how far it can go. After years of studying and professional activity linked to music, I discovered that the limits among different music genres is a mirage: there are more things in common between hip-hop, for example, and classical music than differences. That's why I offer lessons of harmony, music structure and forms and composition adapted to any concerns and interests. All levels. All ages. - (FR) La musique est universelle. C'est une vérité qu'on accepte, mais on ne peut pas s'imaginer jusqu'a quel point elle l'est. Après des années d'études et d'activité professionnelle dans la musique (classique, avantgarde et jazz) j'ai découvert que les limites entre les différents styles de musique ne sont qu'un mirage: Il y a beaucoup plus de ressemblances entre le hip-hop et la musique classique que de différences. C'est pour cela que j'offre des cours d'harmonie, structure et composition de musique pour tous les niveaux et complètement adaptées aux inquiétudes de l'élève. Si vous cherchez à avoir une visión unifié de la musique et comment être versatile en plusieurs styles, ne doutez pas à me contacter.

Learn to play fast. Dynamic guitar lessons, and music theory. In English and Spanish
Music is a dynamic art, and is my believe that it is how it should be taught. Practice is as necessary and important as theory, and sometimes even more. Beginner students start playing guitar within the first month, and not long after that they are able to compose their own music. My purpose is that the student open all the possibilities this instrument offers, and not just learn to play 3 chords; in music everything is possible when you know how and when to do it. La música es un arte dinámica, y por ende es así como me gusta enseñarla. La practica es igual de necesaria e importante que la teoría, a veces hasta más. En mi curso el estudiante puede tocar desde las primeras clases, y en un punto no muy lejano componer su propia música. En cuanto a guitarra, mi propósito es que el estudiante se abra a todas las posibilidades que este instrumento ofrece, no solo a tocar 3 acordes; dentro la música todo es posible, todo lo puedes hacer siempre y cuando sepas como y cuando hacerlo.

Leonardo
Guitar Class - Creativity Music Guitar: make the music you like with the guitar
During my lessons we will find the most suitable way for you to express what you like most. We can learn either how to compose your music and how to play the music you like to listen to, playing both classic and/or electric guitar. We'll practice technique, music and repertoire on the guitar, from classical/acoustic to pop/rock/electronics or whatever you like. We'll practice both composition and improvisation. We'll also practice vocal intonation and rhythmic coordination. Then we'll have a look at the music theory and history, and above all we'll listen to a lot of good music. As you see, the teaching method is tailored on you and everything is really open. Just 2 rules: practice and have a good time! Creativity is not teachable! But everyone has his own creativity to express. Music is a good way to let your creativity coming out, especially guitar is the best and the most complete musical instrument to do it. Looking forward to hear from you!! Best, Leonardo
