Improving every day
“It doesn’t matter at what level you are; there is always room for improvement! To learn music is one of the most rewarding experiences, and the first results will soon arrive! One of the key aims while learning is to connect and to have fun with it. Whether you choose to take guitar lessons, to learn music theory, or to know how to write songs, we will always focus on your musical interests, preferred bands, or favorite songs!”
Adrián Crespo Barba is an emergent Spanish artist and composer currently based in The Netherlands. His first musical steps started at the age of 12 when he began to take guitar lessons. In 2013 Adrián decided to study composition, graduating with honors in Contemporary Music Composition at Escuela TAI (Madrid) in 2017. After that, he moved to The Netherlands, where he also studied his Master of Composition at Codarts (Rotterdam), having graduated Cum Laude.
His music is a mix of many influences that goes from Radiohead to György Ligeti or the oldest flamenco forms, the latter being the main topic of his most recent works. Also, his way of thinking about art establishes ideas in common with artists from other disciplines, as he had worked with experimental choreographers, visual artists, or fashion designers. He has participated in different festivals in The Netherlands, like Red Sofa!, Grachtenfestival, Gaudeamus Muziekweek or November Music; and abroad, having premiered pieces in other European festivals and events such as Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in England, New Baltic Festival in Lithuania, or Crossing Borders in Italy. Since 2019, he is also a member of the AMEE (Asociación de Música Electroacústica de España).
“The guitar lessons course is designed for all types of levels and particularly focused on Blues, Rock and Heavy Metal. Posture, technique exercises, and basic chords for the very beginners; scales, and medium difficulty solos for medium levels; and improvisation concepts and extended chords for the experienced ones. You can choose between the electric or acoustic guitar (or even both!).”
Music theory lessons
“If you want to go deeper into your musical knowledge and to understand how music works, or if you are preparing your entrance examinations for a conservatory, these lessons are perfect for you. As in the case of the previously offered course, all kinds of students are welcome. Depending on your needs, we’ll learn how to read basic music sheets, how to understand harmony, how to listen, or instrumentation concepts.”
“To compose is my passion. The act of creating is the most beautiful thing for an artist, and I love to learn from the creations by other fellow composers and students. With this course, you’ll learn the complete process of music creation: from the basic structure of a pop song to the complex orchestrations of a large orchestral piece.”
