    Piano lessons Songwriting | Audio Production - The Stolk Method

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Piano (all ages):
    Learn to discover the piano in an intuitive and creative way on your level and from your interest. In addition to the basic, we dive into the world of:
    - Pop & Jazz: play songs directly, scales, diagrams, harmonies, melodies, rhythm, swing.
    - Improvisation: in this way you develop your ears in a playful way, your musical memory and musical vocabulary.

    Learn how to bring a Song consisting of text and music (piano / guitar) to life and to a higher level by gaining more insight into: structure, structure, dynamics, contrasts, harmony, melody, rhythm, groove ....

    Audio Production:
    Learn how to properly record an instrument and professionally produce a track in the in-the-box studio from start to finish.
    - Recording: microphone placement, levels, reflections space.
    - Mixing: editing, making balance, panning, making sound (plug ins)
    - Mastering: the whipped cream on the audio pie, loudness, RMS, dynamics.

    In my 'Stolk Method' the following components are central:
    learn to use your ears, stimulate creativity, develop musical memory, expand musical vocabulary, not just blindflight on music notation, develop rhythm and timing, extend harmonic and melodic knowledge, increase sense of form and structure.

    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    At the age of 10 I started playing the piano. In high school (havo for ballet and music) I went to study drums and also discovered the Vibraphone. At the age of 16 I started my studies at the Rotterdam Conservatory with as main subjects vibraphone and drums light music. Teaching and performing musician graduated in 1987. In 1989 I continued my studies at the Berklee College of Music in Boston where I was taught by Gary Burton.
    I had the privilege to work together with many good musicians and artists such as the trio Pim Jacobs, accordionist Art van Damme, the Metropole Orchestra, Flairck, Cor Bakker, Matilde Santing and Herman van Veen. In addition, I have set up my own groups: fusion band 'Line Out', vibraphone - marimba duo 'Mallet Unit' and the prize winning hardbop formation 'Vibes Unit'.
    Gradually I started to compose, record and produce music for myself and for others and that's how Stolk Music Studio (SMS) came into being.
    In addition to giving private lessons, I have taught vibraphone and jazz lessons at various music schools and conservatories in the Netherlands and Belgium. This was later supplemented with giving music workshops to children in primary schools.
    Today I am dedicated to giving private lessons for all ages in Piano (Pop and Jazz), Songwriting and Audio Production, which includes everything I have learned over the past 40 years and I would like to share this knowledge with others ...... ..

    Private lessons Music production (Ableton / recording / mixing)
    Ableton Live has been the standard in the world of music production for years. To make your own productions sound as good as possible, you have to master Ableton completely.
