    Professional guitar lessons - Cirque du Soleil!

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Wondering why take lessons with me? Here are 9 good reasons:

    1) Your first class time is FREE! *
    I have always appreciated the offer "try before you buy". It goes without saying. So the same thing should be applicable to guitar lessons too, right? It gives me pleasure to offer you the first free hour. In this way, you can judge what makes the difference between me and other teachers. And without spending a penny! * (1)
    2) I've been playing guitar for 37 years now.
    3) I have played professionally over the past 33 years, including 25 with Cirque du Soleil.
    4) I am 100% bilingual
    5) The guitar is my passion, my life.
    6) For me, teaching guitar is not work. It's a real pleasure!
    7) And finally (the most important point for me), over the years, I developed my own technique. My system has only ONE GOAL: PLAYING THE GUITAR! That means "we play a lot, and we learn the necessary theory.
    8) I teach 9 to 99 years old!
    9) I am a double graduate of Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA
    * FREE time is based on a first class of 2 hours min.

    So this is it! A first hour free with an experienced teacher who has his own proven method (whose name is "GuitarBloxx"), based on years of experience, and taught by a teacher who has fun teaching it!

    What is GuitarBloxx? It's a teaching method with ONE great goal: PLAYING THE GUITAR! What does that mean for you? This means that throughout the first few basic courses, the theory will be ONLY based on the game. "Hands on"! Do not just make notes! And yes, there are songs that are so easy to learn.

    From the first class, everything you learn will be based on a song that you learn at the same time! Fun songs to play (you can even pick from my list) AND learn at the same time. You will be able to show the quick results of your progress to your relatives and friends! I will also give you written notes (to do a little practice at home), and also "backing tracks" to immediately give you the feeling of playing in a group!

    All of this is included in my classes, and even more. Obviously, if you are intermediate or even advanced, the same principle applies, only the techniques taught and the songs that we learn differ. A little / a lot more difficulty, and with different goals.

    And what's even more cool is that as you move forward in the program, it's YOU who chooses the BLOXX that you want us to work together.

    In closing, you do not even have to own your own instrument. I have a ton of guitars of all styles that I rent to my students until they get theirs. And when they are ready to buy this first guitar, not only I offer to help them in their choice, but I also have a guitar store that offers the best prices.

    So, do not wait, write to me! It is with pleasure that I will answer all your questions. You can reach me at:
    info@guitarbloxx.com

    Send me your questions, and leave me a phone number if you want to talk about it.

    I hope to have some news soon!

    Acoustic / Electric Guitar Course - Beginner and Initiate
    * English Follow * I have been playing music since I was 4 years old. After a few years of piano conservatory, I finally turned to the guitar. Then, my experience in various groups of hard rock, metal and reggae made me discover bass and drums. I am able to play all these instruments and I would be happy to make you discover them occasionally. However, let's not lose sight of the essential: the guitar. I propose a course for beginner and initiate. You will be able to learn the basics of music theory, by which one is a little obliged and that it is better to do it at the beginning. This will give you tools to learn and understand music more easily. Then, obviously exercises practice guitar to exercise your fingers and possibly directly apply what you just learned in music theory. Last but not least, we will learn and play the songs of your choice, because it is still the most important! I play music since I 'm just a few years old in music school learning classical piano, I finally switch to the guitar. Then, I play among several bands of hard rock, metal and reggae. Thanks to that, I also learn how to play bass and drum. I'm able to play these instruments and I would be happy to see you if opportunity shows up. Anyway, let's go back to the guitar. I offer lessons for beginners or beginners. We'll review the basics of music theory, it will give you the key to easily understand music. Then, we'll practice and apply music theory on the guitar neck, mostly to train your fingers. And last but not least, we'll learn and play the songs you want to play!

    Beginner Guitar and Singing Lessons
    Hello everyone! I am a student at Polytechnique Montreal (20 years old) BUT I love music and especially Guitar. Are you new to guitar? It is not serious! I will teach you to read tabs, chords etc ... If you are motivated to learn how to 'scratch' as they say in jargon and well it was enough to say it! Even if you do not have a guitar, I can bring mine and you can get an idea of your interest in the instrument! I can also help you improve your singing if you want to sing + play the guitar. Thanks to you and long live rock'n'roll! Ps: I have already given private lessons. English is fine too!

    Rhythm guitar lessons and soloist, beginner level uninitiated to intermediate
    Guitarist of 6 years of experience, having already played in several groups and associations, often specialized rhythmic but also sometimes soloist. I myself learned with a particular teacher for the basics before continuing as an autodidact, but the best training remains to play in a real group. I can initiate you or consolidate your bases and make you practice by making you play with me. I always consider the tastes of my students because I think we must love what we do to want to progress, so I do not force them to work a style or a piece they do not like. I will teach you: - to read tablatures, - the basics of music theory such as scales, - the notion of rhythm and how to hold it, - different rhythmic and solo techniques. I have an electric guitar and an electro acoustic, whatever your style I can teach you and make you play on both. I also have an amplifier and two pedals, a distortion and a cry baby. Whether you know it or not, I'll teach you what you need to know about their use. My course is like this: In the first class I start with a bit of theory, about 30 minutes, then we will begin to play, and in each class I will go a little in theory (10-15 minutes), we will repeat the pieces already seen and I'll tell you will learn new ones by always going progressively to the technical level.

    music lessons, theory guitar solfege
    Hello, I propose guitar lessons or music theory. My goal is to encourage, to emphasize the capacities of each one in order to discover the instrument or the theory in an easy and logical way. The course will follow the tastes and style of the student and I promise a quick result, not necessarily at the level of technique (which depends on the taste of your interest in the exercises) but in terms of the overall vision of the instrument, harmony and music in general.
