Working with bands as a coach and producer in studios as well is something that I have always enjoyed doing a lot. I have been coaching numerous bands at the conservatory Maastricht and the „Hochschule für Musik und Tanz“ in Cologne since 2001 as well as teaching band clinics at other conservatories and universities (f.e. Dresden, Mainz, Antwerpen, Leuwen etc) and music schools in many places.
In the competition Composition&Band concepts I’ve led the winner bands into the finals of „youth jazzed“ for the last 5 years.
Since I am in the comfortable situation to have a large open room to work rehearse and record I’m taking the opportunity to offer a band coaching – recording package at my place close to Aachen.
The Idea is to welcome bands here at the „country side“ at the guesthouse with guest rooms, bath and kitchen, where the musicians can stay, hang, cook out, and sleep for the duration of a band training weekend.
My role is to train, teach and record that band for two days (in exception one day is possible as well of course) and deliver a CD with material we have recorded under studio conditions. This Cd contains a rough mix of the tunes we worked on, which displays the progress as well as offers the use as demo tape. I also hand out the individual tracks so bands can do a separat mixing session with me or any external studio.
If this interests You and Your Band and you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me for further information!
