About Me

He has independently composed, produced, and released solo albums, as well as soundtracks for theatre productions and songs for other artists. He began his music career in 1992. He is also an accomplished singer and guitarist who has performed all over Europe and collaborated with numerous international artists.

Paolo has a unique writing style that has developed over the years whilst traveling around the world, through literary studies and ongoing poetic research.
This led him to win the first prize in poetry at the Pirandello Stable Festival in 2012.

He started his career in theatre and cinema in 1998 and alongside an intensive period of training in drama school, he spent seven years acting and improving his skills in stage directing at the Teatro Regio di Torino, working under the prestigious direction of Franco Zeffirelli, Josè Carlos Plaza, Ugo De Ana, Giuseppe Patroni Griffi, and John Cox.
Since 2002 he has written and directed a considerable number of plays and short films.


Paolo had various teaching jobs throughout his career like teaching Italian Literature, Humanities, Music, and Drama in primary/secondary schools and academies. He has an MA in Humanities and Arts from the University of Turin, a Diploma in Classical Guitar from Trinity College London, and he's in the process of getting an MA in Archaeology from UCL. Paolo is actually teaching Music in a secondary school in London.

I shared a Cubase project with Paolo and he provided very specific feedback and suggestions on my mix that I'm sure will improve the quality of my music production and my confidence in my sound. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
"I strongly believe that anyone can achieve great results and learn anything when they’re motivated and enthused. As we know education is often focused on passing exams but too often the joy of learning for the sake of just learning is missing. I can certainly help with passing exams, but in such a way that enthuses my students to want to learn more, developing their talent and curiosity. It’s important to me to create a nurturing environment to enable my student to explore their ideas without fear of failure, building confidence and ultimately excelling.

Jorge
Audio Production and Multitrack Mixing (Master in Advanced Music Technology and Bachelor in Science in Sound Engineering)
Music Producers and Sound Engineers, we use the expanded capabilities of studios to extend compositions into a device for arranging and composing (DAW: Logic Pro, ProTools, Ableton Live, OneStudio, Cubase, Reaper, Reason, etc). This has caused the recording studio to become a meta-instrument, to shape entire compositions. In my opinion, we are not any more composers of music, but we are composers of sound. As a music producer, not only the instrument played is decisive on the final result, but also the background elements, which can be heard or felt throughout the project, make such a big difference.

I own a small home studio with a humble amount of gear: mics, compressors, effects, pedals, synths, eurorack and amps. I teach in various ways but mostly online since there seems to be a higher demand and it's a very effective way to teach music production. The lessons are conducted via video call, all you'll need is a good internet connection and a decent listening setup, be it headphones or speakers. You're also very welcome in my studio for lessons in person and I'll also happily join you at your place if my travel costs and time are compensated for. ————— If you choose to be understood in Ableton, this will roughly be the program: - Overall view of Ableton's workflow. - Generating sound in Ableton.

As an artist I work under Malvae, I write, sing, produce, mix and master my own music reaching Viral charts on Spotify, features in Film like this upcoming documentary 'King Of The Streets' created by an Award winning filmmaker, (Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCqPBzs8PFo, Netflix series and with more than 3 million streams to date I am now looking for a few students to share my knowledge with. Occasionally I do client work for podcast series as an Audio Engineer, create music for film specifically, or provide mixing & mastering.

Whether you are just starting out or want to dive deeper into the process, book a lesson with me to see where you are currently standing and how I can help you take your music to the next level. I can teach you how to work with analogue gear ( I own a few synthesizers myself, including Prophet 6 , Moog DFAM, Minitaur, Ableton Push) I have been creating my music from samples I record all over the world with field recorders, manipulating these sounds into 90% of what you hear in my productions. I combine these sounds with synthesizers and my voice. It is how I found my own sound. But don’t worry we won’t have to go to the outskirts of the world to find your sound, I will show you all the tools and teach you to use them precisely so that you can recreate or transform any sound you may already have to make your productions stand out. Of course, we can also just talk about your music or receive feedback from me, it is up to you!

Eamonn
Guitar and singing lessons in Brussels with a professional singer-songwriter/producer (En/Fr)
Trained at the Music Academy International, I propose private lessons of Guitar, Singing, and/or Audio Production centered on amplified music (funk, soul, jazz, rock, blues, etc.) and adapted to the requests of each student. My classes are open to all, children and adults, beginners or advanced. I attach great importance to the understanding of the technical tools implemented in the interpretation of the pieces, a typical lesson is therefore divided between technical work with clear explanations and actual practice on songs to play or sing. If the student is interested, I also teach the more theoretical aspects of music, such as harmony (scales, chords, modes, improvisation), music theory, rhythm, ear training, and deciphering. I also offer coaching sessions. These are non-regular sessions to target work on specific aspects of the requested repertoire. Each lesson is accompanied by work material (paper or audio) to practice at home. For guitar lessons, an instrument can be made available, for singing lessons, I accompany the student on the piano or the guitar (it is also possible to use backing tracks when the key and tempo are right ) and for audio production, I can provide the software required to start on any operating system (Win, Mac, and Linux) (I don't work with pirated software). Classes are given in my studio in Etterbeek, 5-minute walk from La Chasse. I also teach group lessons for singing, do not hesitate to contact me for more information. Flexible schedule (daytime or evening).
