DRUM LESSONS WITH CHRIS SENIOR AT SOUL STUDIOS

 

THE BENEFITS to learning an instrument have been proven time and again, not to mention, it’s just cool! Drums are a great way to increase your IQ, concentration levels, brain speed, coordination and to generally annoy neighbours by playing obnoxiously loud at inappropriate times! (Or if you’d prefer, you can just rent space in our studio to do this so as to maintain a good relationship with everyone in your street.

PRICE, £45 for the hour or £30 for 30mins and are payable in cash at the time with 24hrs notice needed for cancelation.

PIANO LESSONS WITH CHRIS SENIOR AT SOUL STUDIOS

 

We are offering two types of piano lessons here at Soul Studios

The first is the traditional method where you can learn the classical way with written sheet music, scales, music theory and graded exams (if you so desire). These lessons are everything you’d expect from a typical piano lesson – The only thing missing would be the old fashioned crack on the knuckles if you hit a bum note!

The second is one in which you may learn more freely, developing your own relationship with the piano. Without any written music or strict “rules”, simply learning to play it more from the heart, percussively, dynamically and however makes you smile! These lessons are more chord based with an emphasis on PLAYING and being creative rather than mimicking and with there being no right or wrong answer. Of course you’ll still learn some scales and little music theory, but it’s more about expression and creativity than playing Moonlight Sonata flawlessly to pass an exam.

Both have their own merit and both can be equally as enjoyable, it just totally depends on what approach you wish to take to the instrument.

The piano used is a wonderfully bright and responsive acoustic Kawai KX-15 upright. (If you know nothing about pianos, it’s a really nice “real” piano…. Nothing electric!)

PRICE, £45 for the hour or £30 for 30mins and are payable in cash at the time with 24hrs notice needed for cancellation.

SONG WRITING LESSONS WITH CHRIS SENIOR AT SOUL STUDIOS

 

Song writing can be quite a difficult thing to “teach”, because all of the best songs come from the heart.

However what we can do is coach you and help you develop your style and sound and give you the guidance you need to be able to get the songs you hear in your head out into the world. Generally song writing is done using one of two instruments, the guitar or piano – Not that it CAN’T be done in other ways, but either of these are a very good (and most common) starting point – so ideally when coming along for song writing lessons you are at least proficient on one of these instruments. (If not, while it’s not an impossibility, we’d need to discuss a starting point from a musical standpoint before starting lessons.)

Other than being a lot of fun and a great source of inspiration we’ll help you learn to structure your ideas, write lyrics, create solos and riffs and even build parts for the whole band (if this is something you aspire to). A lot of people struggle with getting started in this area which is why this is something we’re now offering to aid aspiring artists. Not only will you learn to song write but we can record your songs bit by bit and – even if you only want it just for you – eventually you can create your own album! PLUS we have contacts with many local venues where you can play open mics and gigs should this be something you’re interested in too.

There are few things more rewarding than creating something from scratch and writing a great song is one of those things that can rock the world – literally! – so if you think you’ve got some great ideas but need some help getting them out of your head and into the world we can help!

Song writing lessons are a minimum of 45mins long but ideally an hour and but can be done on an ad-hoc basis should you wish.

PRICE, £45 for the hour or £30 for 30mins and are payable in cash at the time with 24hrs notice needed for cancelation.
