Learn MUSIC PRODUCTION in a professional studio: Including composition, arrangement, performance, recording, mixing and mastering.

The basic course takes you through all the elements you need to professionally write and produce music; with specialties ranging from record production to writing for media i.e. T.V and film.
Learn all the pitfalls and save yourself years of pain! :)

Skills I take you through are:

1. Music finishing; e.g. lyrics, arrangements, programming drums and synth parts.

2. Performance and recording techniques - setting up microphones, and hands on exploring the different types and 'colours' they record.
How to record real synths and find the correct sounds for your music.
Re-amping guitars and anything else to give your music more life!

3. Mixing; Using Pro Tools HD, Logic and Ableton, an SSL mixer with lots of classic 'outboard' equipment as well as the latest plugins on board the computer.

4. Mastering; The final stage of releasing music is making it sounds amazing on all systems.

A course is tailor-made to suit the desire of the student - from recording and releasing your own music, to film audio post-production and sound design and everything else in-between.

I have more than 30 years in the music industry, previously working at BBC Radio 1/1xtra station, and also at Jools Holland's Helicon Mountain studios in West London.
I am eager to share what I have learnt over the years in a really friendly environment - it's perfect to take home all the knowledge you need to write from anywhere in the coming years.

Extra information

Nothing needed - you can bring in your own projects and laptop and plug into the system here.

About Me

Hi :)
I'm originally from London, UK but I unplugged my music studio and moved over to beautiful Amsterdam where I have lived and worked for just over 4 years.
I'm a trained guitarist, with a specialisation in acoustic guitar played with fingers.
I also specialise in music and song composition, recording, mixing and mastering.

Education

Guildhall School of Music - Classical Guitar and Theory of Music.
Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine - Degree in Biochemistry.
Highgate School - A levels and GCSE exams.

Experience / Qualifications

Played classical guitar for 30 years +.
Degree in Biochemistry,
Dip in Music therapy.
Music teaching.
Music composer and producer.
Write and producer music for BBC, radio 1, 1Xtra and TV.
Film scoring and audio post production.
Music Designer.
Music is so powerful, and learning to play an instrument even slightly fluently can open a whole other part of your life that can remain in the shadows. Ask any performer! :) It has huge benefits for social, personal, mental and physical health - you can lift peoples moods, and lose your self in beautiful meditation. My tutoring is tailor made for the individual's needs - the main area to cover are the little steps you take to get addicted to practicing, so that you can play without thinking. Along the way we can talk about units e.g. to cover specific styles, like classical, jazz or pop to improvising, reading music and learning some music you love. All it takes is a little patience and the world will change for you.

Drum lessons (ensemble playing, ear training and more!)
The drumset is one of the most important and powerful instruments in a music ensemble. It does not only provide the rhythm and groove foundation for all the other instruments - it also defines the sound of the band, the character of the songs, the volume... just like an orchestra conductor. In these lessons (which are of course personalized and open depending on the interests of the student) we will work beyond the physical/mechanical aspect of the drums (technique, coordination, etc) into the musical aspect, so we will spend some time listening and analyzing music together, working on ear training and music theory from a practical point of view.

Music on all levels: Bass guitar/Improvisation/Theory/Composition lessons
Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced player trying to expand on very specific topics, I am here to help you become a better musician. I believe the best way to learn music is to study what you love. Therefore, we will always look together for ways of making the process the most enjoyable and tackle different topics through your favorite artists. The classes can be very structured if that is what you like, or very loose: all that matters is your progress and enjoyment. Among other things, we can focus on: -Basic technique on the instrument -Learning songs of your choice, with a method that will allow you to learn songs by yourself later on. -Learn about different styles: Pop, Rock, Funk, Soul, Metal, Jazz... -Develop your understanding of music through the instrument (scales, arpeggios...) -Creativity, and improvisation through the use of the material we have studied together -Ear training and music theory -Rhythm, all the way from basic to very advanced -Basic compositional techniques, or fun ways to start composing

Music is a great way to express yourself and your feelings, it is an amazing tool to learn about your personality. As an art form, music has been around with us from ancient times. As a musician, you'll need to be able to know music theory and acquire technique. Through years of teaching I've developed a method of learning music in a practical and structured way, keeping the joy of making music as a main focus, as well as providing with all the necessary theoretical background. I teach music to all ages: my students currently are from 5 to 81 years old. And all levels: I have an individual approach for every student. You will learn how to play music, listen to music, compose your own music and more! Usually, my students are able to make music within a first week of learning and I have a lot of positive feedbacks and reviews from them! My lessons are: saxophone, improvisation, composition, Ableton Live, artist development.

Guitar and Music lessons from a CvA graduated teacher in Amsterdam
Learning to play the guitar can be an amazing experience at every stage of the process! My ultimate goal is to help my students to develop their skills and musical understanding by learning and playing music that they like. Therefore I adapt my teaching methodologies to the taste and needs of every student. Throughout every lesson, we will work on three main courses of development: technical aspects, theoretical knowledge, and performative practice. My classes are open for anyone who would like to enjoy exploring the universe of music: beginners and advanced, children and adults, you are all welcome to book the first lesson.

Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.

Gabriele
PRIVATE Music Lessons: electric bass, improvisation, composition, music theory.
The class I propose as a private teacher cover the following subjects: -Bass Guitar: we will cover elements such as technique (from basic to advanced), groove, timing, soloing, creating catchy basslines in different genres (Jazz, Pop, Rock, Funk, World Music, etc..) -Improvisation: idiomatic (related to music-genre) and non-idiomatic -Composition and Music theory: study of harmony, scales, melody, creative musical-writing. All these subjects are interconnected in the lesson! N.B. IMPROVISATION, COMPOSITION AND MUSIC THEORY ARE OPEN TO ALL INSTRUMENTALISTS!! The first lesson with a new student is always an opportunity for the student to express what he likes about music. During the first lesson I usually propose my favorite music to the new student, and the the student does the same. The first lesson is the first approach in knowing each other, so that I can tailor a study programme that fits perfectly my student. By developing the just-mentioned study programme I guarantee that practice is linked to pleasure, cuoriosity and discover! Regular practice is also ensured by giving the student exciting and challenging assignments, that at the same time are doable. In this way I guarantee both satisfaction and challenge.

Daniel
Learn Solfège, improvisation, composition and harmony
I am a multi-instrumentalist (saxophone, transverse flute, keyboard), composer and arranger (SACEM member since 2012), excellent improviser. This course will allow you quickly, whatever your instrument and your technical level, to understand and master the chord sequences and the articulation of musical language according to these sequences. In addition, you will learn the most frequent or rare harmonic structures used by composers. And, theory notwithstanding, you will learn to develop your ear to identify harmonic structures. This course also includes an introduction to the history of jazz.
