Over Yiannis V.
Hello! I am Yiannis, I’m a Greek Bass Player, Musician and Educator, active in the Dutch Jazz Scene.
Born and raised in the capital of Greece, after finishing his engineering studies there, I came in Rotterdam to pursue a Jazz Performance Degree in Codarts University of the Arts.
About the lessons:
In our first meeting we will discuss what kind of music you enjoy and why you want to learn an instrument.
If you already play for some time or have some musical experience, we will focus on building a more personal curriculum together.
The goal of the lessons is to provide to each student the knowledge necessary to play the music that they love in this instrument.
I use a combination of systems to form a basic curriculum, and on top of this basis we build together the individual lesson plan of each student.
The systems that is mainly used for beginners are:
- Double Bass: Simandl and Suzuki systems for the Double Bass, plus own compositions that facilitate this combination
- Bass Guitar: A combination of Books (Fundamentals for Electric Bass among others) and own material developed and organized to facilitate fast development of muscle memory and musicality
While learning any of these instruments, you are going to need some knowledge of music theory, solfeggio and ear training skills.
These fields are going to be discussed in the lesson and be part of the practicing routine of the student.
For advanced students, the lessons are mainly based on the goals of the student and the material that is taught varies significantly based on:
- Goals (improvising, comping, bowing etc.)
- Music idiom that the student wants to focus.
Don’t hesitate to book a tryout lesson, and don’t forget: We practice and play music because it’s fun and because we love it!
