About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I am a mixed media artist based in the Netherlands. I am currently completing my Master's degree in Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague in collaboration with the Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM) in Amsterdam. I am originally trained in classical piano and composition at the Conservatory of Music of Perugia, Italy. The strong interest in computer science and contemporary art has led me to experiment with new artistic languages, whilst the curiosity for new technologies is leading me to create interactive systems for mixed music compositions.

Ableton Live - Getting your ideas down into a workable format to create a full working track! No prior knowledge needed!
I specialise in making music with the computer when there isn't a whole bunch of theory knowledge there. I can teach you to quickly and efficiently make that tune in your head into a reality, then turn that into a full track. If you have tried a few tutorials or courses and they didn't fit with you because of all the engineering jargon and theory based approach, this course is for you! I learnt to make music because I was hearing all these songs in my head but wasn't good enough at any instrument to materialise them. Ableton allowed me to hash through ideas, jam with them, then finally turn them into a full working track. I have also worked as a live and studio sound engineer so I do have the theoretical knowledge but can communicate in the language of learners from all different levels. I think there are a lot of people that just need to express what they have in there head and Ableton is by far the best program for that. It is very intuitive, "jammable" and so much fun! For me Ableton is my instrument but I also play the drums, piano and bass.

Piano lessons Songwriting | Audio Production - The Stolk Method
Piano (all ages): Learn to discover the piano in an intuitive and creative way on your level and from your interest. In addition to the basic, we dive into the world of: - Pop & Jazz: play songs directly, scales, diagrams, harmonies, melodies, rhythm, swing. - Improvisation: in this way you develop your ears in a playful way, your musical memory and musical vocabulary. Songwriting: Learn how to bring a Song consisting of text and music (piano / guitar) to life and to a higher level by gaining more insight into: structure, structure, dynamics, contrasts, harmony, melody, rhythm, groove .... Audio Production: Learn how to properly record an instrument and professionally produce a track in the in-the-box studio from start to finish. - Recording: microphone placement, levels, reflections space. - Mixing: editing, making balance, panning, making sound (plug ins) - Mastering: the whipped cream on the audio pie, loudness, RMS, dynamics. In my 'Stolk Method' the following components are central: learn to use your ears, stimulate creativity, develop musical memory, expand musical vocabulary, not just blindflight on music notation, develop rhythm and timing, extend harmonic and melodic knowledge, increase sense of form and structure.

Davide Guido
Music Production, Music Theory, Composition, Cello, Sound Engineering
My name is Davide and my music experience started when I was 10 years old during my middle school in Italy. I started playing cello and I kept on studying classical music for 8 years, performing as a soloist and in many orchestras and ensambles. In the meanwhile I started being interested in electronic music and composition for soundtracks. When I turned 17 I realized that music would have been my passion and my job. I graduated in “Contemporary Writing and Production” at Pescara Conservatory in Italy. During these studies I dove deeper into Pop and Experimental Electronic Music, orchestration and orchestral composition. I also had the opportunity to play in different bands and discover different genres such as Post Rock, Progressive Metal and Heavy Metal. After my bachelor degree, I finished my studies following a Master program at Codarts (Rotterdam) in Creative Production. During those two years I had the opportunity to collaborate with many people and explore different kind of music (Turkish, Flamenco, Jazz etc.). I wrote an Artistic Research about electronic unquantized music by analyzing the sound of producers such as Flume, Burial and Arca. Now that my studies are finished I feel that I want to spread my knowledge and my passion to many people as possible. My class subjects are: - Music Production (from beginners to expert level, mainly Ableton Live and Pro Tools classes) - Cello Lessons (from beginners to intermediate level) - Music Theory (from beginners to expert level) - Composition and Orchestration (explore the world and joy of composing for an orchestra and how to use your DAW as a real symphonic orchestra). As a Producer I want to let the student feel completely free to ask me whatever he / she wants. I have had many experiences as a producer and I know how to handle many different genres. My first teaching experience was at 17 years old and from that moment on I did not change my teaching set-up. I want the lesson to be an interactive moment in which the teacher and the student are sharing ideas and opinions. Feel free to apply for a trial lesson with a 50% discount. I look forward to meeting you!
