We won't learn reading sheets , although I can read, I'm not classical pianist, we can learn blues, jazz, pop, rock and some country too, depending on your preferences. Always trying to be as practical as possible, music is fun, it takes hard work, but once you understand a concept you won't need a sheet to create music.
We'll learn how to improvise in those styles, although we can investigate other styles if you would like to.
Hello, I am a professional musician. My history with the music starts with my dad, he introduced me to the guitar when I was 10, and I quite liked it, but the music was just a hobby by that time. It wasn't until the age of 16 that I decided to start playing piano, my vision about music completely changed and became a passion to me.
I started just taking what I learned from the guitar and applied it to the piano. One day I met someone that showed me the G blues scale. I learnt how to improvise, and so I started to develop my improvisation in other genres like pop, rock, jazz, etc.
Improvising made me feel great, because I could create my own music without a paper in front of me, and that is one of the things that I want to show my students. Improvising is the base of composing for those who love creating their own songs, and you don't need to know much music theory to create your own songs.
In 2017 I started a degree in Madrid called "Creación Musical" or musical creation in English. Unfortunately, I was only there for 3 months and I had to move to Belfast for personal matters.
Just a month after I arrived to Belfast I started a full-time job as a keyboard player in a wedding band called The Professionals. I have learnt a lot from them, they're great musicians.
I think the best way to learn music is playing with other musicians. I have been playing with other bands occasionally, but The Professionals is the band that I play with 95% of the gigs that I do.
These past years I have been teaching friends and family, and recently I started to give lessons here in Belfast with mgrmusic.com, all of them beginners, so I tried helping them to understand the piano in two basic parts: Chords and Scales.
With those 2 things, they could play any song that they wanted.
As a musician what I love the most is to play with a band, but I love teaching too. I love seeing how my students keep improving and enjoy music as much as I do.
