Hello there! My name is Mikel Barandiaran, I'm a Spanish singer-songwriter, producer, arranger, composer and a million things more that has to do with music. But that is not important right now, you are the important individual in this conversation.
I want to tell you a bit about why I'm here:I feel music everywhere, in movement, noise, people, nature, animals, silence, etc. It would be an understatement to put music into a category of comparisson with other things for me, because is basically my natural state of appreciation towards life. But, I can say something: I just want to help the world listen to that music, that is everywhere. I want the chance to help you get into the world of music, I will teach you to learn about your own musical ability and influences. I'm not going to impose a genre, style, technique to you. I want to help you discover your own path and we will go on your own pace. Luis Alberto Spinetta, one of my favorite musicians, once said that we are just bridges that connect the rest of the people to music. I believe that we owe ourselfs and to music, being truth to our own being and open enough to let that magic flow through us and reach the rest of the world.
We will work not only in how to play an instrument, but music itself, theory, arranging, composing, songwriting, tricks and formulas, pop, experimental and advance harmonic techniques.
See you on our first lesson, and bring some tunes you like!

First of all I chose piano, but he teaches you all that is necessary to domain the instrument, from theory to ear training. And it is not annoying or boring, I have AD syndrome and I cant focus as good as I would like, but he has found a way to connect me to music and be more eager and pacient to learn, I’m having so much fun wirth this that I’m even considering taking guitar or bass too+ Read More

Excellent experience, he helped me fall in love with the instrument and the ways to find my own sound. Also got me into music structure and composition, so I could make my own songs. He actually cares about teaching
