About Me

My name is Kay, I am from Australia and I began playing the saxophone at the age of 10 years old. I was admitted to the Victorian College of the Arts and attained my Bachelor of Music at the Conservatorium of Music in Melbourne. I also spent two year in France learning performative and learning technicalities of the Saxophone in Bordeaux - since 2015 I moved to Switzerland to further enhance my studies at the Zurich University of Arts in Master of Music Performance. Since being able to gain different perceptions and experiences through education, I have gained my own method through not only the saxophone and music but also through analysis of the body and movement.

I hope to also bring these aspects through my teaching methods and students can acquire different lessons in accordance to their needs of learning. I have also worked with many age groups and different levels. I believe that everyone has a different learning method and I would also like to introduce how music can be expressed and be enjoyed by everyone to share!

Luna
Harples and solfège lessons for each level. By an enthusiastic harpist. Student at the conservatory with experience in teaching.
I am currently a student at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. I am in my third bachelor. I have followed harp lessons for 13 years with various renowned teachers such as Eline Groslot and Annie Lavoisier. In this period I also gained a lot of experience as a concert harpist. With, among other things, the second prize in the competition Français de la Harpe (2017). And for 3 years I also give private lessons in harp and solfège. These lessons focus on both (young) children who want to learn harp and adults who want to start with harp. Each student is guided at his own pace and the lessons are adapted to the wishes of each student. Also, solfège lessons are adapted as much as possible to the pace of the student.

Ableton & MaxMSP Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing, and mastering. Max, also known as Max/MSP/Jitter, is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations. Depending on your interest I will show you how to use and customise each program to your needs, but also show you how to combine the two in order to get the best of the 2 worlds. Ableton and MaxMSP are a killer combo for anyone that wants to: - expand their musical instrument with electronic extensions - create custom made controllers for their live performances - create complex automations for live or studio use - produce music, compose, arrange - create automated VJ sets to accompany their live performance - create a live looping performance - control backing tracks for live performances - work on generative music - program art installations and much more I will give you sets & patches with examples to accompany the lessons, but also help you build your own creations in MaxMSP or Ableton.
