Over Matthias S
My name is Matthías and I’m a performer and composer of many types of music ranging from classical music to hip hop. I am a lover of all good music, and don’t value any genre over others. I believe we must all try to find joy and artistic satisfaction when playing or making music, even if you are just starting out, or are already an experienced musician. I see it as my mission to help others find that, and will teach technical skills and provide inspiration to get there. I look forward to setting your journey in motion and help you following it through with steady support!
All my classes can be given in Dutch or English!
-The clarinet is a beautiful and versatile instrument that works amazingly in so many types of music! I will give lessons in any style of playing. From beginners to advanced, we will explore repertoire based on your interests, set goals and I will guide you how to reach them. We will be working on technique, going through classical repertoire, or improvising, or working on a combination of styles!
-In live electronics lessons, we explore the possibilities of adding electronic effects to your accoustic instrument or voice, live looping, how to use midi controllers, and more in Max MSP and/or Ableton Live.
-In Ableton Live lessons we will explore the possibilities of Ableton Live as an electronic music producer, and how you can use it to make the kind of music you want! I will teach you techniques such as sampling, looping, beat-making, EQ, compressing and more.
In all my classes, focus can be put on solfege/ear training, music theory, composition, score analysis, performance, stage skills, practising methods and more, all depending on the level and needs of the student.
I am a professional clarinet player, live electronics performer, singer, composer, producer and teacher. I have 12 years of professional experience playing classical music, having performed as soloist with orchestras and won first prize at the First International Cyprus clarinet competition. I graduated in 2013 from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam as a classical clarinet player, and in 2016 as Master of Live Electronics, also from the CvA. My own projects include the Icelandic chamber orchestra Elja, experimental pop band Molino, my solo trip hop/ambient project Boy On The Moon, the icelandic balkan orchestra Orphic Oxtra and punk jazz group Blæti.
I started teaching clarinet at age 18, and it has been a joy for me to see my students grow as musicians.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and discuss your needs at our trial lesson!
