Central Leader - - EDUCATION& TRAINING -

If you’d like to take your mu­si­cal as­pi­ra­tions to the next level, take some pro­fes­sional ad­vice from the friendly, tal­ented mu­si­cians at De­Base Mu­sic Cen­tre.

Re­cently re­lo­cated from Nel­son Street to their handy city fringe lo­ca­tion in Morn­ing­side, De­Base of­fers the great com­bi­na­tion of in­stru­ment tu­tor­ing and a live record­ing stu­dio.

In­di­vid­ual and group lessons in­clude prac­ti­cal and grade the­ory with one free record­ing ses- sion in­cluded at the end of each term.

The qual­i­fied tu­tors are all pas­sion­ate about their craft and teach most mod­ern in­stru­ments in­clud­ing gui­tar, bass gui­tar, key­board and pi­ano, drums, flute, vi­o­lin and vo­cals (pop and rock).

The beauty of De­Base is that they can of­fer a com­bi­na­tion of dif­fer­ent teach­ing meth­ods to suit in­di­vid­ual stu­dents and to take ad­van­tage of all the styles.

Gui­tar tu­tor and mem- ber of a few Auck­land bands, James Erceg teaches neo-clas­si­cal rock in the style of Yng­wie Malm­steem. Other gui­tar tu­tors can cover the gen­res of jazz, singer­song­writer, gypsy jazz and drift­ing.

Prom­i­nent drum tu­tor, Joe Brown­less, is in the band Heavy Me­tal Nin­jas who can of­ten be seen per­form­ing at Pow­er­sta­tion, re­cently as sup­port for Co­heed and Cam­bria.

Vo­cals tu­tor, Stks, has re­leased two suc­cess­ful al­bums in New Zealand and on iTunes and is work­ing on his third al­bum.

‘‘Our live record­ing stu­dio gives peo­ple a chance to show­case their tal­ents,’’ Says au­dio en­gi­neer, Ivan Wong. ‘‘We of­fer great re­sults at af­ford­able prices.’’

Their record­ing ser­vice for vo­cal or in­stru­men­tal also of­fers song ar­range­ments, even from a sim­ple mo­bile phone record­ing. In­cluded in the ser­vice is pro­fes­sional ad­vice for peo­ple to sing bet­ter, im­prove stu­dio and play­ing tech­niques to get the best out of a record­ing.

Space is avail­able for af­ter-school lessons and week­end study. Live record­ing stu­dio by ap­point­ment.
