Guitar lessons for all ages and all levels. The idea is to have fun!

I specialise in teaching guitar for all levels. Beginners are very welcome. My main aim is to get the students to enjoy playing and from there we can start to get deeper into theory, composition, improvisation and song writing. I also specialise in Brazilian guitar if that is anyone's passion.

About Me

Teaching is a great responsibility and honour. The idea is to create a relaxed and inspirational learning environment. I have over 20 years teaching experience as well as 25 years in the music business as a writer, producer and instrumentalist. Apart from learning to play the guitar, I also encourage the student to be creative with what they are learning and write their own ideas and come up with original compositions. Learning an instrument is about allowing your inner creativity to flow. It is all about enjoyment, meditation, focus, therapy and creativity.

I have a degree in Art History and French from the University of Sussex.
I have been studying Shaolin Kung Fu for the last 10 years.

Un prof-artiste très attentif. Il se met à l'écoute, évalue le niveau et répond au mieux aux besoins de l'élève.
My first lesson with Chris was very good - he quickly assessed my level and technique and provided some good exercises to work out. Chris is experienced and has a nice style as a teacher.
Every good advice on what a young student may want to learn.
My son Jeremy loves his guitar lessons with Chris. He practices 20 mins 5 days a week and always looks forward to the lessons. We think the best of Chris.
I specialise in writing and composing music for all levels. The student will need to have a music programme such as Logic or Ableton in order to be able to take this class. The topics we will cover are: Structure and arrangment. Rhythm. Harmony. Advanced Harmony. Bass Lines. Lyrics. Instrumentation. Arrangement.
Learn to play piano and read music. Beginners welcome! All styles from classical, jazz, latin and rock music covered. If the student requires, we will be looking sight reading, music theory and composition in terms of using and applying scales to create chords and melodies.

Mykola
Piano and vocal teacher with unique methods of teaching.
I teach my students according to a methodology that is based on physiological training. It includes a new: playing technique - which provides rhythmically accurate sounding of all notes regardless of the finger you touch the key with, allows you to maximize the volume range, allows you to control the sound as much as possible and play very quickly; the method of teaching singing - allows you to teach proper breathing, sing with an open and covered sound, natural vibration, corrects diction, develops a sense of rhythm, hear and sing accurately, teach vocal speech: maximally lengthen vowel sounds and shorten consonants; the method of teaching reading from a sheet - allows you not to disassemble the works, but to play immediately as we read books, look at the notes and hear music; special exercises to relax the muscles and prevent flirting hands, clamping ligaments (bird).

Guitar Lessons for Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced Players
It´s important to me to plan the guitar lessons based on your likings, goals and skills to make the learning as enjoyable and lasting as possible. Which genre do you like the most? Where are you making great progress and where are you still struggling? Based on your interests I teach acoustic/ electric guitar, pop, rock, blues and fingerpicking and if you want, I can teach you some classical/Jazz pieces as well, I´m not an expert at the last two genres though. Furthermore I will teach you the reading of tabs and sheet music. How are chords built and how do I write a song? With more advanced players I will dive right in to the wide field of improvisation. In a typical lesson we will play the guitar together (I will always have my own with me), put the song you´re playing on a speaker and play along, jam together, sing together (only if you want) and you will get a copy of the sheets so you can practice at home. If that sounds good, write me a message! I´m looking forward to hearing from you!

Jappe
Guitar lessons and music taught as a language (no basic knowledge needed)
Hi I'm Jappe, a 30 year old man with a huge passion for music and teaching. After my studies at the Jazz/Popsoul studio in Antwerp, I started teaching in the region. Soon I noticed that many people who have played guitar for years (sometimes 20 to 30 years) still lack a fundamental basis. This basis is essential for understanding the instrument. The guitar is a logical tool, if you follow some steps to see the "bigger picture". I have 15 years of experience and performed on various stages, including Street parties, Permeke Festival, Easywood Festival, Antwerp Tower and at the Mas in Antwerp. I also had the opportunity to study with some top guitarists from Belgium and the Netherlands, such as Frank Peeters, Ruben Machtelinckx, Peter Verbraecken, Koen Wauters and Paolo Loveri. The genres in which I have a lot of experience are: Pop, Rock, Blues, Boogie Woogie, Ragtime, Country, Funk, Jazz, Classical, Flamenco, Reggae and Latin. Both fingerstyle and traditional with the pick.

Medieval, folk and Celtic harp lessons
"I still remember the first time I heard the sounds of a harp, when I was 8, my grandparents took me to a concert in the little church in Gosselies. To pinch the strings, I was kidnapped by the magic sound that came from the heart of the woods.The longer the concert went on, the closer I got to the harp ... After harassing my parents for a year, I started To study this magnificent instrument, it immediately became a sacred object for me, and thanks to him, I could communicate my feelings, laugh, relax and find the desired balance. " My courses are based on the Irish teaching method so first of all to the ear, on the resources that the student has in himself and on the fact that one learns while having fun. I propose a harp lesson: - Medieval dedicated to teenagers and adults for false beginner and intermediate based on medieval music and rebirth, improvisation, arrangement of melodies, ... - Celtic for all ages from 14 to 70 years, beginner level, false beginner, intermediate and intermediate / advanced based on Celtic repertoire and Irish, Scottish and Breton techniques After a few lessons, the neo-harpists will play short and simple melodies until the end of the journey to play more complete melodies that provide accompaniment and use of both hands. Lessons are defined on the learning needs of individual students. Even if I use the Irish teaching method, I will provide the basis for reading the pentagram, for the integration of rhythm, the foundations of harmony so that the student can read a piece of music independently. I live in Italy, so I come back once a month in Belgium (sometimes more) for the courses in attendance (duration of the lesson in attendance: 90 minutes). Next dates for the courses in attendance: - a date at the end of February - once a month from May. For skype lessons (3x per month, lesson duration 60 minutes) see the typical week. Do not hesitate to write to me.

Piano Lessons with the Best Colombian Young Pianist!
Considered “Best Colombian Young Pianist 2018” after winning the first prize in the national piano competition in Colombia. I have a Master's degree from Liszt Ferenc in Budapest, Hungary, and a Master's degree from Columbus State University in the United States. Besides my career as a pianist, I have over 10 years of experience in teaching Piano, music theory, and history for all ages and categories. Even if you are a beginner we can make it! I have a personal method where I combine both classical and commercial repertoire depending on the student’s preferences. I usually play four hands with my students as well and organize at least one concert a year with all my students where they can meet and share their experiences. If you are an enthusiast about piano competitions, we can also work on that together. I will guide and support you through all the steps of the learning experience.

Alethea
Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory class for 6 years, because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.
