I have been writing songs now for 30 years, including being asked to write lyrics for local charities and for special occasions. Songwriting theory and musical theory and compositions can often take the fun out of lifting and playing music - whether its a guitar, microphone, drum kit! These 1 hour sessions give the customer an opportunity to explore musical styles, rhythms, while personalising a song for their own use. Every song created will be supplied in an electronic copy, with the lyrics displayed in a certificate explaining the background to the song/ lyrics/ tune etc. Option1 : Tutor and customer discuss the scope of the song - whwether the song is to be personal - about someone, somewhere, a particular event - whether the song is to be uplifting or melancholy, with distortion, or smooth? These personalised songs can be so well received; especially with a copy of a certificate explaining why it was written, when it was written and for whom. Option 2: The Random Song - pick some random words and create a masterpiece; see the story come to life as the song verses merge into a meaningful chorus.... or let the fun begin, and let the children ( small and grown up) have loads of ideas which randomly converge into YOUR song! Can be done in person as part of a 'party' or online over Teams etc. No two sessions are ever the same; and multiple members can dial in if you want them to share in the Songwriting process! Please feel free to ask questions, I have sample certificates available, and would love to hear from you! Every session comes with an e version of the recorded song, and an electronic copy of the certificate, showing the lyrics and details of the songwriter, date created/recorded.

My name is Sander and I am a guitarist and singer with Hippotrakor and L'itch, and I really want to coach/inspire people with the aim of igniting their creative fire. Our lessons will start from your vision of music, and we ask ourselves the question 'Why did you start playing?'. Then we will reconcile your motivation with the learning process of your instrument. It's a bit of a different approach than with the classical music teacher, but don't let it put you off. I am trained as a remedial educationalist and teacher and also have six years of experience in the social sector. I can feel very well where your strengths lie and I am convinced that we can shape your trajectory together with those strengths. I have only mentored one student so far, but I can proudly say that since this year he has released his first own CD, started performing and has become a real ambient connoisseur.

Trusted teacher: I am an all around guitar player and that's my philosophy as a teacher. All genres of music can contribute to build your own style. I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. I started learning classical guitar when I was 15 when I was already performing live with school bands, singing and playing the guitar and drums. After school, I took electric guitar lessons, film scoring lessons and Jazz Arrangement. I have collaborated with many popular musicians, singers and bands in the Greek music scene over the years, playing live and on tour, as well as in the studio. I also compose original music for TV and radio commercials, theatrical plays, and have been a guitar tutor at many music schools. As a performer, composer and tutor I draw from across the musical spectrum – from Byzantine music and composition studies to rock/jazz and traditional music. I try to break down boundaries between genres, experiencing music as an unlimited soundscape. In 2014 I released my first solo album called “Portokali”

LeeLoo - Barcelona$57
Trusted teacher: Hi there! Do you want to learn to sing? Well look no further :-) Within your first few lessons, you will be singing in ways you never thought you could! If you are a beginner, we will unlock and overcome any challenges you are facing with singing, and if you are more advanced, we will work on giving you a wide variety of dynamic and style, to break any habit or tendencies to always sing the same way. No matter your level, we will work to build your own unique voice using your own natural nuances and ways that you emote. We will work to build soul and power to your voice! Finally, I specialize in edgy genres of music such as Rock, Alternative, and Metal! If you are interested in learning to add grit, distortion, compression and/or to scream safely, I can teach you this as well! I also have a huge background in classical, musical theater, jazz and R&B. Riffing and agility with technical accuracy are something I personally love working on, and will share tips and tricks to help you fly through notes effortlessly! Q&A: CAN ANYONE LEARN TO SING? The answer is YES. Depending on physicality, practice and time... everyone in their own time span can learn to sing efficiently and with power and emotion. I THINK I´M TONE-DEAF: Well, guess what? There is no such thing! Not being able to match pitches on command has nothing to do with inability or some kind of ¨disorder¨. It´s about muscle memory... we will learn this. I ALWAYS END UP SINGING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER OR SOUNDING THE SAME WAY... We will bust things like imitation and only singing the same riffs over and over, by building aware of how your own natural voice works and applying it to your singing voice. I HATE THE SOUND OF MY OWN VOICE! Well guess what? So do I! So does everyone, even professionals.. and listening back to recordings.. YUCK! (at first).. Everyone is their own worst critic. However, we can learn to analyze your own with a technical ear instead of a critical ear, as well as focus on how the notes feel, and the better they feel the better they will sound... trust me :) In our classes you will learn to sing with ease and, make what was once a challenge to you, very easy! I encourage versatility because I am a highly versatile singer 😊 We address breath support, sound placement, tone, pitch, muscle memory, flexibility, range, diction, dynamic and performance. I am a very technical teacher and I explaim everything in great detail and you will receive notes in an email each week with directions and exercises from the previous lesson. Overall, I LOVE to work with students of all styles and backgrounds, and will challenge those interested in developing technical skill, or ROCK OUT with and just have fun! I look forward to working with you!
