    GUITAR lessons from scratch for first timers [Flexible] [Money back guarantee]

    There are numerous courses to learn guitar out there, but none such as the one here.
    This course is meant for people who have never played a guitar and the course is structured in such a way that the student will learn all the skills he or she needs to get started on the musical journey to stardom!
    The course teaches all the basics, theory and practical, enough to get properly introduced to the guitar world and end up with skills required to play a ton of songs.
    The following will be taught in this course, and the hours will depend on the student's learning pace:
    1) Fret Theory and guitar basics
    2) Major and Minor Diatonic scale theories
    3) Chords - Open chords (21), Barre chords, Power chords and their variations
    4) Triad Theory - How to form a chord
    5) CAGE technique
    6) Solo basics - Pentatonic scale

    About me - I have been playing guitar as a rhythm guitarist in my bands for the past 8 years. I focus on original compositions and am completely self taught. So I know exactly what a student should learn while starting to learn guitar without losing interest early, and the student will be well prepared to continue to learn more advanced guitar playing skills like soloing from more conventional type teachers.

    Extra information

    Having a guitar for yourself is a plus. Else, I can arrange one but not guaranteed.
    Language of instruction is English (UK)
    If you are unsatisfied, I will not charge anything as I believe in a two way fair transaction.

    MUSIC / FLUTE / PICCOLO lessons for beginners and advanced students
    Hello everyone! If you love music and want to learn while having fun, you've come to the right place. I am an active professional flautist. I am currently studying for a Masters in Flute Performance. I have more than 15 years of studies and more than 6 years of experience in teaching music (introduction to music, music theory, music theory, intonation, listening, chamber music ...) and more particularly flute and piccolo. I also prepare for conservatory and / or academy exams. I have also played in many orchestras such as the "Orquesta Sinfónica de España". All ages and levels are welcome. Great availability of schedules. You choose the type of class, and your goals will be mine. Quality education assured. My main goal is to learn while enjoying the great pleasure of music. Together, we will find out what you are capable of and go as far as possible while having fun! Do not hesitate to contact me! I will wait for you!

    Inspiring violin lessons - all levels and ages welcome!
    I am an enthusiastic professional violinist and teacher. I can teach you classical violin, folk songs from Greece and Middle East, as well as your favourite pop tunes and tunes of almost any other music genre! Being well classically trained, I can help you build a solid violin technique and prepare you for giving your best during important music occasions such as exams, auditions, concerts etc. Also, being member of pop - oriental bands with concerts around Belgium, France and Greece, having played with several classical and contemporary music ensembles and orchestras, as well as coming from a family of musicians, my lessons are ideal for students who want to learn to be at ease when they eventually make music with others. :) All pieces can be taught either by ear, music scores or BOTH!! Teaching you basic and/or more advanced music theory to facilitate your violin learning if you don't know yet how to read and write music, can be easily done! My personal experience with music psychology and body movement techniques for musicians have enriched my knowledge and teaching skills. Extra attention is given during the lessons to not only help you build a strong and steadfast technique and develop your music ear, but also to acquire a confident presence and attitude for when you play for others! All is being done with gentle care towards your body's physiology and feelings, and consideration of your learning style. :)) Finally, I'm at your disposal in between the lessons, answering to any questions you might have and offering you support and guidance with your new insights! :D

    Electric Guitar, Improvisation, finger style, backtracking
    I have been playing electric guitar for 16 years and I was a member of several rock bands before. In my courses, I mostly focus on improvisation over bluesy, jazzy or simple rock chords. For those beginners, I start with some basics until we reach the required level to improvise. By taking the classes, you will learn how to accompany other instruments and enjoy together with other musicians.

    Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
    I teach Entry level/Beginner/ Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons with a focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms from a broad base of musical genres. Classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. Each lesson is designed to keep the student at the peak of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing their own technical skill. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their passion to the music they want to play. In the first lesson, we can get to know each other and you can get an idea for how the lessons will be taught while letting me know what elements you'd like to focus on in the future.

I believe everyone can sing, and I believe that everyone could sing greatly if they are patient and put work in it." - Dominyka "I promise that with our singing lessons you will learn more about your own voice and that you will develop your own sound as a singer. We work on warm ups/warm downs, breath support, vowel placement, vocal effects, vocal colour, dynamics, articulation, stage presence, high notes - power singing (belting), and so much more. My goal is to have a good time and spend our lesson's time wisely while we achieve the best results within singing.
