About Me

I absolutely love my profession! The very definition of what it means to be a literate person in our society is rapidly changing because of technology. I enjoy working to support students’ communication skills in the classroom, on paper, and online. I want to make reading and writing relevant to my students’ lives; this requires that I think bigger than simple pen and paper assignments. I can also describe myself as friendly, enthusiastic and respectful. As a teacher, we can easily get respect from the students if they would feel respected first. First, English is a language and not a basis of intelligence. We might be better than our students when it comes to speaking and understanding English but they might be more intelligent and talented than us. It just so happened that our country has been open to different dialects when it comes to learning. I am enthusiastic because i want my students to feel that i am higly spirited and faithful that i can teach them well, they can adopt it and they will become better when it comes to verbal, written and comprehension of the language. I am friendly because I want to make my students feel that speaking English can empower them to share ideas and do business outside their nation and throught it, the opportunities that they can get are limitless.

ISTANBUL GUITAR LESSONS IN ENGLISH - CLASSIC, ACOUSTIC OR ELECRTRIC
Hi Everyone, This is Ricco from Istanbul, Turkey. I am a professional guitar instructor who also is playing in various stages with different bands currently. I have a solid 10 years of guitar experience in all genres, from pop to rock & blues and so on. Besides playing electric guitar professionally with different bands, I am also giving professional hands-on guitar lessons for the guitar enthusiasts. There is one major rule for my guitar lessons which is ALL LESSONS ARE IN ENGLISH !!! This is why most of my students are either childrens of expats working in Istanbul or students studying in colleges and private schools whose official language is English. If you are interested in learning how to play guitar (either classic, acoustic or electric), please feel free to get in touch with me. After the first lesson If we both agree that we can move further, we shake hands and plan your progress together. Lessons can be done either in your own flat or mine, but the price per lesson may vary accordingly. Students may also use my own guitars which can be seen in the photos, my amp and pedals. Looking forward to hearing from you !!! Ricco
