I am able to to teach music theory from the very beginning up until post-tonal theory. I specialize in teaching beginners with basics like recognizing all key signatures/circle of fifths, solfege, reading in different clefs, intervals, triads, and different types of scales. However, I am an experienced tutor in many levels of theory and can most certainly be of help for homework assignments and creating exercises to understand different concepts.

I was one of the first 4 Ableton certified trainer's world-wide and have been re-certified several times since. You can find my CT profile on the Ableton website.

I started the first US Ableton curriculum at the legendary Dubspot in NYC, where I was also teaching for 8 years, both in the physical school and online.
i've been teaching Ableton at Garnish Music since 2017 where I co-wrote the curriculum.

As a long time electronic music producer I'm familiar with Logic, Po-Tools and I'm also a Native Instruments specialist, having created curricula for sound design with Komplete and Maschine at the above schools.

Over the years I worked in many musical style, from hiphop to house, techno, synth wave and downtempo bass music styles, having been an active artist/producer with major label credentials myself since the beginnings of electronic pop music while also collaborating in the studio with many artists.

I speak English, German, French and also some Italian.

Heinrich is a great teacher and a great person!
He knows so much and is so enthusiastic and patient while teaching. He has a lot of experience and he is a warm-hearted person, definitely the kind of person you wanna spend your time with :-)
Demitri Kesoglides
Heinrich was hands-down one of the best music instructors I've ever had. He has such a celebrated history as a producer and engineer, yet he still remains humble in the teaching environment with his students. He also adapts to specific learning styles and knows how to get through to you if you have difficulty with a particular topic or module. He's also a geuine, great guy - once you are his student he has no problem helping you or giving you advice long after his course is completed. To this day my brother and I still consider him a friend and a mentor. Highly highly recommended!
Andrew
I learned Maschine and Native Instruments MK3 from Heinrich and he knows his stuff!!! He is very patient and very supportive. He is one of the few official Maschine experts who are available to teach.

Maschine is not easy to learn but Heinrich tried to simplify topics into something easy to understand. He was open and flexible to my learning style and how I wanted to approach my lessons. That's the biggest benefit to private lessons with Heinrich!

I read the review by Cezanne about Heinrich not having enough interaction with students and that was not my experience. In fact, I felt sometimes I got too much time with him (sorry Heinrich, sometimes you talk a lot haha!). Don't get me wrong, the things he had to say were very valuable, I can just be too eager sometimes to move on from a topic so that's really on me and not Heinrich. Any time I had questions, I could text him and if it was too much to text back, he would call me right away.

Heinrich is also very chill and relaxed when it comes to working with you to find a good time to meet up for a lesson.

In my one hour of comprehensive teaching, students learn extensively the techniques of the violin, including tone production, vibrato, musicality and pieces of music which are chosen from standard violin literature or Suzuki books. The whole idea is to get students to look at the whole learning process as a fun activity, and very soon they acquire the ability to produce beautiful sounds, correct intonation and strong vibrato. In addition to the above, I conduct some some ear-training exercises to improve intonation as well.

Carolina V.
He is very patient and has excellent communication skills. I have no knowledge of how to play the violin or music of any kind. After my first lesson I strongly feel he will be my private instructor for many years to come. I left with proper technique of how this instrument is to be cared for and good posture when practicing. He also informed me of the books we will be incorporating into my lessons. Most importantly homework is given and he is very patient and explains everything at your level.
Kira
I was very pleased with my first lesson with Nader. He is very kind and patient. We covered some basic points with what we'll be covering for my lessons with the cello. His instructions and explanations of technique is very clear I feel my lessons with him will be very beneficial and enjoyable.
Sean K.
Mr. Nader is an excellent instructor who always puts his students first. He customizes his lessons in accordance to each individual and patiently works with them so that they may achieve their optimum potential.

More than just a passive teacher of the violin, Mr. Nader dedicates his time and energy as a full time instructor of violin, cello, and music theory. Furthermore, Mr. Nader exhibits a level of knowledge, intellect, understanding, and culture rarely seen in the world today. When one walks into his music room, one will be struck with awe at not only the amount of books in Mr. Nader's library collection, but also the wide variety of subjects ranging from Music, Music History, Biographies, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many more. However, do not think that these books are just for display. Quite the contrary, one short conversation with Mr. Nader will show that he is well versed in all these subjects; a modern incarnation of the Renaissance polymath. Building off of his broad knowledge base, Mr. Nader not only teaches one how to play an instrument, he also teaches one how to cultivate oneself in Music and the culture from which it originates.

With a passion for Music and a yearn to pass on higher culture to the avid learner, Mr. Nader is the best instructor for all those who wish to learn Music along with its connection to the history, society, and culture from which it springs.

"I'm an adult with some music background. Jordan has been great, encouraging me in my progress and helping pay attention to the details of music. He's also guiding me in teaching my kids who are 5 and 7. They have some special needs. We tried having my boys take lessons from Jordan initially, they just weren't ready for formal instruction. Too many typical crazy kid behavior. So I am doing what I can at home and Jordan has given me great input to get them ready to eventually take lessons. I'm so impressed with Jordan. He has a great, positive, fun personality and he really knows is music!!"
