Learn how to sound like a pro-guitarist with minimum skills

Are you tired of reading tabs yet not being able to play your favorite songs on the guitar? Are you tired of putting a lot of effort into practice but still not meeting your guitar goals? Or do you just want to pick up a few songs on the guitar to impress your friends/colleagues without the hassle of committing to some serious music theory?

If your answers to all of this are a resounding YES! then congratulations, you're in the right place.

I believe the biggest lesson I can share with you about playing the guitar is: practice! and inspiration. Practise is critical, and you can't practice if you're uninspired.
Do you want to:

a. Learn easy songs and entertain people?
b. Play live or record?
c. Move on quickly to an electric guitar?
d. Get the blues/country vibes?
e. Get the flamenco (Phrygian) vibes?
f. Play percussive guitar?
g. Play instrumental guitar (no singing)?
h. Cover pop songs?
i. Compose?!?!?!?

On the very first meeting, we will discuss your desired guitar goals and realize if I'd be able to help you with them. If you do choose to go ahead with me for guitar classes, the curriculum will look something like this:

1. Music appreciation (this is important for being inspired! the more videos you watch the better! I have playlists you can follow for now and develop your own taste in guitar playing).
2. Finding your way on the fretboard.
3. Finger exercises.
4. Fingerstyle picking/ plucking (depending on the genres that inspire you the most now).
5. Scales, arpeggios, chords, and chord families.
6. Cover songs.
7. Music theory.
8. Keeping up with the tempo (not Kardashians 😛 )
9. Improvisation and play by ear (or eyes)

In professional classes, they'll teach you tempo way earlier but I think it kills the mood for learning. Hence, that is something I intend to cover later. Realistically, we can partially complete steps 1 through 6. Steps 7, 8, and 9 will indeed take a lot of time.

So, what are you waiting for? If you like my vibe and have a passion for music, feel free to join my classes!

Happy guitaring!

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

Vismay
Guitar for beginners / Intermediate players - Rock, Blues etc
* I love playing guitar whenever I have time. I have been playing from last 9 years with different genres - Rock, Blues etc. * I am actively playing in church / gospel rock / etc. * I come with my vast experience and would focus on music rather than theory. I am good with ear training of the music rather than reading notes and playing it perfectly. To me, dynamics is all about music. Just be involved fully into it.

I have studied Piano Performance and Musicology at top universities in the UK and graduated with distinction.

I design different lesson-plans for every single student depending on their levels, learning modes, interests, and abilities.

Johnathan
Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own intrinsic passion to the music they enjoy.

Giorgos
I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Guitar Classes Online for all ages and levels from an experienced teacher
Hi everyone, Many of us will, unfortunately, will need to stay at home in the coming days, including kids. I can give you and your kids lessons of guitar (classic, bass, rock) or ukulele at any time or day of your convenience. I am a professional musician with master degree and have over 18 years of teaching guitar experience for beginning and advanced students, children and adults in the university and private schools (including in Switzerland). I can also teach the theory and practice of music composition (jazz included). References are available. Music heals a lot of things, most effectively helps with boredom and anxiety. Lets all stay well and make some music!!! The languages spoken are English, German and Turkish.

Ambre
Private lessons of trumpet and solfege for all levels
I was a student for 6 years at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels while being accepted in one of the most prestigious conservatories in Belgium. In master 1 I had the pleasure of leaving for a year in Erasmus in Italy in Rome, artistic capital essential in particular musically. I have already taught the trumpet by giving private lessons and lessons can be done in French, English and Italian and also by webcam. I am currently an associate professor in a conservatory and a music school in France. My goal: to make you feel more than one with your instrument and to have fun when you practice it. Having known several pedagogical methods of teaching the trumpet across different countries, whether you are beginners, advanced, adults or children, amateurs or with the aim of becoming professional, I try to best adapt my different pedagogical knowledge according to your expectations. and above all without forgetting to share a maximum of musical happiness with you. Having finished the conservatory in music theory I can also give lessons in this subject. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to contact me on the site. Hoping to share a musical path with you, see you soon. Thank you
