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 9 'O' levels (GCSE's) and 3 'A' Levels.
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.

Experience / Qualifications

20 years teaching experience.
I teach a music composition module for a degree course at Point Blank Music School.
I have released 10 albums over the last 20 years.

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.

Guitar, Piano & Music Production - beginners to advanced and all ages
I am a professional guitarist with over 20 years of experience in playing live and as a session musician. In addition, I have been teaching guitar, piano and music technology for over 10 years in schools and colleges. My guitar teaching method (Acoustic and Electric) includes rhythm and lead guitar, technique, music theory, notation – as well as preparing students for Trinity & ABRSM grades (all pass with a “Merit”!). All ages and levels are welcome. I also teach piano/ keyboard at beginner levels and that includes learning notes, scales, right & left-hand technique and also preparing for grades. * Music technology lessons are also available (recording, mixing, and software such as Pro Tools, Logic & Cubase). The lessons are tailored to every individual student’s needs, interests, age, level, and style. Hold a valid DBS check.

John
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.

Hernan
Berklee College of Music Graduate offers private lessons of Guitar, Harmony & Improvisation in Utrecht
The way I teach actually depends entirely on the student. The way I explain the concepts, plan and structure the lessons and approach each subject all depends on whether the student is a beginner, intermediate or advanced, and whether he or she has some experience on the subject. Each student has different needs and different abilities. It's just a matter of getting to know the student, in order to identify both the weaknesses and strengths on which to work.

Learn Piano and Improvisation and practice other languages :)
The most important matter that I could write here about is my passion to teach. I've been teaching already for more than 10 years, from kids to adults. I'm a classical pianist, but I am opened to other musical styles. What I want you to get from your lessons with me, is not only a huge knowledge of theorical stuff or a great technique, I would like to show you my musical world, the imagination and inner exploration that is required to understand and to love music in a whole new level. Once you have found them, it will be very hard to quit playing! The class duration: You can choose! 20 minutes (Great for the youngest : 3 years old) 30 minutes (Ideal for young beginners from 4 years old) 45 minutes (Intermediate+ adult beginners) 1 hour (Intermediate and combined with some Music Theory) I use different methods depending on: 1) The goals of my student 2) The language that we will use on class 3) Age and musical preferences: I start to teach children from 3 years old, we make games and they learn to play through musical stories that I have created throughout my pedagogical career.
