    Composition Lesson
    Composition lessons are for anyone who wishes to compose music, for any instrument, emsemble and/or electronics music. My teaching method combines various approaches and styles, supporting practice with theoretical knowledge, and most important developing creativity and helping the student in making their imagionary visions come real. For each student a different palate of tools is offered, according to the student's musical wishes and ambitions. I teach the basis of western-music composition - theory, harmony, counterpoint, score-reading, solfege, rhythm, analysis and more. Further I suggest broad overview of world, jazz, pop, new/contemporary music, various styles in electronic music (popular and experimental), improvisatory compositions, graphic notation, text and game pieces, music for theater, film and dance and interdicsiplinary works which combine music with other art fields.

    Singing lessons from a professional Argentinian singer
    I'm a professional singer teacher from Argentina, with over 12 years of teaching experience. Graduated at the University of Music of Buenos Aires. I worked giving singing lessons in cultural centers, schools of music and also in my own studio. At the same time during my career I had many musical projects of different styles like rock, pop, jazz, tango and brasilero. I also worked seven years as a singer in a state orchestra of popular music of Buenos Aires where we performed around the country of Argentina and we give music workshops as well. Knowing your own voice, seeing your potential, setting goals, working and achieving them generates a feeling of freedom and absolute happiness. That is why I invite all the people who want to discover this incredible instrument that we carry with us, and those who already sing to continue training and surpassing goals. The course lasts one hour, where we practice vocal technique and work on a repertoire of songs looking for the best, natural and confortable way of interpretation. At my studio I have professional equipment to sing and record our classes. I give you lessons in English, Spanish and Italian! I'm looking forward to working with you and to hearing you sing!

    Adrian
    Guitar/Music Lessons with professional musician for all levels
    Guitar, Solfege, Ear Training, Rhythmic Training, Theory, Harmony, what you need! Learning Guitar starting in any level or preparing for Auditions, I can help you! A little about myself: I'm from Venezuela and I'm currently studying in Codarts. I'm a Jazz Guitar player. I've had experience from all sort of places, from Latin America to the US to Spain to The Netherlands, so I can offer a wide view about not only Jazz but music in general. I tent to focus specially on Technique, I want my student to discover a personal and deep connection with the instrument and knows it in broad sense. That means working on really knowing the guitar! I also emphasize my lessons on Ear Training and consider it an important skill for maximizing the student's playing experience. Rhythm is really important as well for any instrument. And I have a strong background in Music Theory and Harmony, since I'm not only a harmonist (guitar) but also I've studied the subject quite extensively.and I'm convinced it will enrich the student's playing and understanding of music. I will also focus on repertoire. My commitment is too always teach these skills/techniques in a practical way, so it makes sense to the student and therefore inspires her/him to discover more about music and enriches her/his playing!. If you are not a guitar player don't worry! I can teach all these subjects (except Guitar) to any kind of instrumentalist.. I will always adapt to the student's needs!
