« Jan has been fantastic to learn with. He has a wealth of practical knowledge and breaks it down so that each session moves at a regular pace while still developing through topics. He does this by building the foundation and linking the individual topics together to form the essential practical methods. I have found it to be a real struggle to find a tutor who is both a professional in the subject but who can also teach to a professional standard. Well... Jan has it all. »

Professional Film Composer is offering music production and composition lessons in London

Methodology

In my lessons, you have the possibility to learn all steps of music creation (from music history and theory to dramaturgy and conception, from composition/arrangement to producing and mixing.

In my composition/music production lessons, you can choose between working on your pieces or on technique based composition/music production assignments. I will provide you with feedback as well as the right tools and skills to either improve your work or to extend your musical horizon. Music is subjective which is why I am interested in developing and getting to know your "voice" in music.

My Music Theory lessons are a mixture of theoretical inputs and ear training assignments Hereby, I want to skill your ability to listen, understand, and analyze music and strengthen it with theoretical knowledge.

If you are interested in getting an insight "behind the screen" in my work as a film composer,
I give you the possibility to be a fly on the wall in my recording sessions or if you qualify maybe even to assist from time to time.

I am looking forward to getting to know you.

Jan has been fantastic to learn with. He has a wealth of practical knowledge and breaks it down so that each session moves at a regular pace while still developing through topics. He does this by building the foundation and linking the individual topics together to form the essential practical methods. I have found it to be a real struggle to find a tutor who is both a professional in the subject but who can also teach to a professional standard. Well... Jan has it all.

Jan is an inspiring tutor for our son, who is studying towards a Level 3 Music Production Extended Diploma. He has transformed our son's learning experience. Via Zoom tutorials mainly, he has lifted our son's performance to producing really excellent work, bringing out his talent, meeting his potential. Jan is willing to lay the foundations of music production and build from here. He will work from the basics to expert level. He is an excellent teacher in every way. He is patient, systematic, provides feedback after each session and learning points. He keeps our son on track. He is completely reliable and professional. Jan has collaborated with our son in real life (Covid safe) on his college project work, enabling professional level recordings of compositions, plus production time and experience in Jan's London studio. The music our son has produced, with Jan's support is startlingly good. Jan is a great role model. I hope Jan will continue to inspire and tutor our son in the months and years ahead.

I’ve been having film composition lessons with Jan for several months and his lessons have been so helpful and highly encouraging to develop my screen scoring abilities. He always prepares for the lesson with some interesting musical tools to help expanding my compositional techniques and skills. Also, as being a professional film composer, he gives me a clear advise based on his real-life experiences whenever I ask him about the film music career and the industry. I’m really enjoining the lessons. Highly recommended!

I had the chance to participate at several film music workshops hosted by Jan. He can not only share his knowledge and know-how in a very adequate and effective way but is also designing the lessons in a very entertaining and passionate manner. Mesmerising!

Jan is a very skilled composer and producer with many years of experience in the industry. I have known him for 2 years now and played for him on several projects. He has a wonderful manner of being and communicating with people and has taught me a lot about film composition. He is patient and has a lot of knowledge and I am confident that he will take you to the next level and beyond in your composition and music endeavours! Can’t recommend enough.
