Melbourne Guitar Lessons. Studio Visit. The Professional World of Recording

At the Creative Guitar School here in Melbourne located in the Eastern Suburbs, we believe students should have insights into the professional world from early stages in their  guitar learning.

We encourage and thrive for strong relationships with the professional community to expose career opportunities that can develop and focus creative potential .

Over 20 students explored the world of music production and all it´s processes from tracking , overdubbing mixing and mastering. They acquired knowledge in microphone techniques, signal processing and digital media .

We all visited the Black Pear Studios in Moorabin: A state of the art complex featuring a 72 channel SSL 4000 E series console  The studio has a collection of over 350 microphones, 350 vintage and boutique pedals, more than 130 top quality guitars and an endless supply of outboard signal processing gear.

It was a successful rewarding Friday afternoon for all attendees. Stay tuned for more.

Melbourne Guitar, concert, workshops, Eastern Suburbs

On October 15th  and 22nd from 5 till 7pm The Creative Guitar School located in Melbourne´s Eastern Suburbs and the TOORAK UNITING CHURCH will host a series of workshops targeting well being through music.


Contemporary lifestyle can limit personal interaction within the community there fore rendering a lack of expression and personal satisfaction.

I believe we all have a creative potential that can be expressed through music. When we express we feel better. When we interact with others as a team we feel better, when we accomplish a common goal with others we feel better.

These workshops target the stated outcomes. Participants will engage in a structured improvisation based on diatonic motif development striving to express through vocals, guitars percussion and other instruments they can produce at the workshop.

The Flamenco Sound

Generally since I have lived in Spain for over 32 years  I am considered  a flamenco guitarist. I must say that I love the flamenco melodic and harmonic colors but this is only one style of music that I thrive on.

I have learnt flamenco coming from a western background so I have had to relate to previous knowledge for it´s understanding.

Let´s make it real simple , you get the blues sound by playing the blue notes. Flamenco is very similar You get the flamenco sound by playing the flamenco notes. In Blues if you do not play the blues sound often then it sounds strange. In Flamenco if you do not play the flamenco sound, the notes that sound flamenco then it also sounds strange. Check out the following post . Advanced Flamenco, Melbourne Eastern Suburbs Guitar lessons

How to hold the guitar, beginner lessons and tips at Tom´s Studio. Melbourne

I believe we all must start off with the best tips that will assure us joy in our playing for a long time to come.

Guitarists engage in repetitive static positions. It is very common to suffer pains, strains, tennis elbow,cubital tunnel syndrome and many more injuries

THESE WILL NOT OCCUR IF YOU ENJOY YOURSELF AND FOLLOW SOME BASIC TIPS:
Do not play in a manner you do not like as this will cause injury and please follow this link to my Melbourne Eastern Suburbs Guitar Studio for all levels of guitar learning.

SPECIALISED GUITAR TUITION : TOMAS LORENZO

 

Tomas Lorenzo offers performance based individual and group guitar tuition for secondary education. Students learn in a group setting that is also an ensemble that performs.

A guitar world music ensemble is created for each participating school allowing guitar students of all levels to perform a selection of compositions that reflect the diversity of contemporary Australian culture.

Group tuition with performance orientation is a low cost effective manner of learning music creating a stimulating educational environment that quickly allows the students to understand and use the primary elements of music which are melody, harmony and rhythm.

Once the student is exposed to the joy of expression through music, once he or she feels good about what they are doing , once the student is given a task he or she can accomplish and play in a group setting , they will want to and need to know more.

My goal is to establish the individual tasks needed to achieve the enjoyment but with a clear defined educational goal of:

  1. Development of left and right hand guitar techniques
  2. Understanding of major scales, modes, and time signatures
  3. Bilateral Integration: Development of rhythmic coordination between the left and right sides of the body
  4. Melodic and harmonic recognition: both aural and applied to the instrument
  5. Songwriting analysis
  6. Style analysis
  7. Development of short term and long term memory capability
  8. To develop understanding of music in a group situation where team work is required to achieve the final performance.

Levels: All levels
