GUITAR and DRUM LESSONS with Tutors: Karl Galea (Guitar) and Manuel Pulis (Drums)
GUITAR provides a vehicle for personal expression whilst at the same time developing fine motor skills and complex co-ordination. It promotes discipline, responsibility and commitment to working towards a goal. Above all else, guitar lessons will transmit a skill that can be shared with and appreciated by others. These classes are open to students aged 7 years up to adults.
Karl Galea is a guitarist active in various forms of music including jazz, manouche swing, funk, soul and folk. In 2008 he moved to London to study at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. After earning his Bachelor of Music Degree in 2011 he continued to work in London as a music teacher and session guitarist. Locally, some of his recent projects include the manouche jazz group Swing Nuages and also the Elata Quartet. He is a member of the polystylistic Maltese music group Kazinska, with whom he performed at Expo 2015 in Milan. He has appeared at the Malta Jazz Festival as part of the Fringe Youth Jazz Ensemble and continues to perform regularly with various jazz, funk and soul combos.
DRUM lessons are held on an individual basis and will include a variety of different aspects of drumming, from learning how to properly hold the sticks to understanding and applying ergonomic techniques and mastering the kit. There will be a focus on musicality, appreciating different genres, styles and concepts as well as learning how to read music notation.
Manuel Pulis is one of the most sought-after session musicians on the island, working with some high calibre musicians in Malta and abroad. Starting from working with pop, rock & hip-hop bands, a certain understanding of organisation, perseverance and motivation was developed. With the help of his previous drum teachers and mentors Manuel was able to attain a spot in the prestigious Siena Jazz University, Italy. While in Italy every opportunity was taken to play, produce or organise music, concerts and gigs. This led him to play in festivals around Europe and of course in Malta. Manuel has an understanding not only of what it takes to be a drummer, but more importantly a complete growing musician. While keeping ongoing projects both in Italy & Malta, after his studies, Manuel bases himself back on the Maltese Islands where he focuses primarily on music education, music production & composition, with an endless list of past and ongoing projects/bands.
