Music Production Piano Song Writing Music Theory
I've been playing the piano for 26 years and I'm lucky to say that it has been my passion and my work in my whole life. My goal is the pass on that love for music to others regardless of age or experience. My youngest student ever started when he was 3 years old but one of my best students must be towards the end of his 40s (never asked:).
I have always made my bread and butter of some form of music-related jobs. It could be teaching at schools, playing gigs with other musicians (or solo) from big stages to small clubs but I wrote music for theatre performances too. As a hobby/side business I make music videos other musicians and myself. One of my biggest musical achievements is to have played as an opening act before Alicia Keys on the Dubai Jazz Fest with my all-time favorite swing band 'The Swing Revue'.

His classical training and professional education at three conservatories in Holland provide a thorough technical basis, but never stands in the way of his contagious enthousiasm. Having played solo and in various line ups for any imaginable event, this highly talented musician developped a unique blend of taste, flexibility, adaptabiliy and skill, which explains why he was, and still is, the first choice of Holland’s most popular stand up comedian Najib Amhali to bring Alexander along whenever he needs live musical back up. Resulting in touring the most prestigious theatres in Holland and Belgium (Carré, Ziggo Dome, Circus Theater etc.) over the last eight years, adding up to a staggering 600 sell out shows, and counting…Alexander has decided it is time to start passing on knowledge and experience to those who seek to develop their musicianship or to those who simply want to get acquainted to music. Beginners or advanced pupils: they're all welcome!Alexander teaches by his own methods, which adapts from student to student.

I am a professional singer / songwriter from the Netherlands. I have toured around the world with different bands and in 2020 I won the European Songwriting Award for a song on my album 'Hide & Seek'. My favorite style is pop/folk/americana, but I also love indie and soul music and whatever I'm in the mood for :)
I've been teaching for 12 years now and it gives me great joy to get the best out of the people I'm working with.
It works best when you have questions about something particular, so we can work on that. But I always look at the bigger picture, because people, music and performance have so many different layers. In the end it's always about freeing the mind and the voice so we get the best authentic experience of YOU!
One way to dive deeper into your musical story is to learn more about improvising. In a playful way you can discover a lot of great new songs ánd free your voice!
I can help you with your singing as well as your songwriting. Whether it's a vocal technique issue (I work with CVT and EVT and other techniques) or a lyrics or harmonics that doesn't seem to work out. Or maybe you have trouble accompanying yourself at the same time you're singing. You can ask me anything.
Or maybe you're worried about getting out there on stage... The most important thing is being yourself, but in a very focused way. This way you can transfer the best of who you are and the best of your music at that specific time and place. Everyone can do it.
I'm looking forward to meeting you!
Music Production Song Writing Music Theory Piano
About Me:Hi!I'm an English/Italian Artist, Music Producer, Songwriter & Mix Engineer based in North London.I am actively writing and performing original music, as well as regularly collaborating on many varied musical projects. I am always learning, studying and making music and I truly believe this is the key to continuous and enjoyable development. I also love to DJ and regularly perform DJ sets in venues in London.You can check my latest artist release here: https://linktr.ee/reverthefutureI enjoy many different styles of music and have benefited from having an extensive palette throughout my musical journey so far. I particularly enjoy Soul, Hip Hop, RnB, Ambient, Electronic, Grime, Folk, Blues and Jazz music. My ears are always open to new sounds and textures. I have experience in the analogue domain recording bands through large console desks playing many of these genres and more. The prevalence of DAW's in the last decade has allowed many great artists access to a professional recording environment using just a laptop and a few fairly inexpensive bits of gear. I am also very experienced in recording audio, sampling, programming and orchestrating music with MIDI. I began making my truest music with a DIY mentality using digital & analogue samplers and MIDI controllers. I am competent with Sound Design and I utilise the fundamental concepts which allow me control of the envelope, colour, timbre and the texture of my sound choices.The Sessions I Offer:I believe in teaching with an engaging, practical, hands on approach, allowing you to lead the way based on where you are in your development.I offer individually tailored lessons and sessions for creatives of any level :) I teach concepts in the following disciplines (beginner through to advanced):- Music Production- Mixing & Mastering techniques, mindset & creative approaches- Programming- Layering- Sound Design- Music Harmony & Theory - Songwriting techniques and insight into the processes I utilise for writing, developing and finishing songs. I can help you programme, layer and sculpt sounds, as well as help you utilise Dynamic Processors like Compressors, EQ's (Digital & Analogue) and other FX based forms of processing such as Delay, Reverb and Modulation in order to bring your ideas to life. These skills are essential for modern producer/songwriters, though In my opinion equally important is understanding your own relationship to music and how you can translate your feelings and emotions into sound. I operate day to day from my studio in Finchley. I am experienced in Logic Pro X, Ableton Live & Pro Tools. I play Guitar, Bass & some Keyboards and can help you on your journey towards using these instruments to compose music. I want to help you get the best from yourself and will always offer honest, detailed, constructive feedback on your songs, productions and mixes. I'm happy to provide you with written lesson recaps after our session.For some people one lesson might be all you need. For this reason some people come to me for one off lessons and return casually on an ‘as and when’ basis.All the best :)Cristian
Bass Guitar Music Theory Song Writing Composition Music Production
Hey everyone!I started officially teaching in 2020, before that I worked in audio post-production and compositions for video games (for Ubisoft, Epic Games, and a number of smaller developers). I have played over 400 gigs onstage as a bassist with over 80 bands until 2017; mainly rock/Metal oriented acts, but sometimes jazz, blues-rock, so mostly heavy stuff.During my conservatory years in Budapest where I was born, I worked hard to get my sound engineering diploma as well in London, which allowed me to later help build recording studios, and get into music- and audio production. Currently I have my own small-time production studio in Strasbourg (France), where I last worked on SFX design for Unreal Engine 5, but you can find my name beside projects like Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, The Crew, Watchdogs, a bit beside Fortnite too.Currently I'm producing albums of nearby bands, mainly Metal oriented ones, and I also work for the biggest amusement park in Europe composing music.I'm here to offer knowledge about recording, music and audio production (mixing and mastering as well), playing bass in studio or onstage, finding your tone as a musician, music theory, composition and arrangement in various styles, basic understanding of acoustics etc, the list is long.Beyond my wildest expectations (I never really aimed at teaching), this year I found myself enjoying passing the torch on many of the things I do fairly well, so I thought I'd give this site a shot.
