Piano and Music Theory (especially for songwriters)

I specialize in teaching music theory and piano, especially for songwriters, drawing from my background of classical piano, my MA in songwriting, and my career as a published singer/songwriter. I assign creative exercises as homework, and I try to not let any question unanswered!

For instrumentalists, we will look at the piano and some of its different techniques - classical, jazz, accompanying yourself, with focus on what the student actually wants to learn.
For songwriters, we will go through music theory basics, and then basic harmony until we will be able to construct own our songs.

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

I can teach students from all the levels playing either saxophone or piano. From jazz style to classical.

In an playfull way, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences.

Music Production / Computer Aided Music Course
No matter what genre you like, by taking my course you will learn how to manage the different stages of music production. I detail it in all aspects: mastery of the software, choice of sounds, structure, mixing, effects. The objective of the courses is the acquisition of artistic as well as technical skills. I adapt to different profiles: age, level, pace, style, goals. --- I give lessons via webcam on Google Meet which allow sharing of the screen, as well as the sound. This has the advantage of allowing people to share their screen and the sound of their software with me from their computer, and therefore promote learning even with busy schedules, or even upset in these times of health crisis and covers -fire. It also allows me to listen and advise in real time, as much on the creative aspect (composition, vocals, arrangements) as on the mixing techniques. I adapt to the needs of creation, so I encourage people to apply my advice directly and concretely, during the course.
