Voical and Performance Coaching in Various Genres!

Music lessons can often become mundane if you're learning from a standardized curriculum and not getting exactly what you want from it! I specialize in giving students very customized lesson plans based on their unique and individual needs. The concepts I cover range from basic jazz theory, to healthy vocal technique, to performance and songwriting. Within that I work with students on developing their unique singing style, learn basic piano to accompany themselves, learn harmonization techniques and various other aspects of being a well-rounded musician.

My main 2 goals for any student is to make sure they enjoy what every session offers and learn things that enhance their understanding of music and take them closer to their own goals. Every student's musical journey is unique and I'd love to be the one to guide them it!

Extra information

Having your own keyboard or piano is ideal (required if you'd like to develop accompanying skills), but not necessary to make great progress,

About Me

I am a very versatile teacher who loves working with students who are passionate about music, learning, and making progress. With the vast array of musical concepts I have knowledge and skills in, I can make music lessons a very fresh and interesting experience for students! I believe that each student aspires to improve different things and I love being able to enhance their basic knowledge of music, polish up on their niche and anything in between!

I am an active musician in Canada and have performed internationally as well. I practice everything I teach because I strongly believe in the methods that I have learnt and immensely benefitted from. In my experience I have students get disheartened from music lessons that just don't match their interests and needs so while I respect the merits of standardized courses I am excited to provide much more customized lessons for my students.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

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

Work your diction to have a beautiful voice and / or a beautiful accent / Paris.
This course is aimed at those who evolve in the French language and of which it is not the native language. But also to people with a strong accent and who would like to reduce it. The work that I propose is based on my speaking techniques from theater and singing and will allow you to have a beautiful diction, speak less quickly and more clearly. This course is also intended for professionals of the communication (singers, comedians, journalists, lawyers, doctors, lecturers) wishing to develop their oratory potential or to address a specific question. Looking forward to reading you.
