Classical Guitar, Composition and Music Theory Lessons

I am a graduate of Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with 10 years of experience as a music tutor and as a performing musician. I am an enthusiastic classical guitar, lute, composition and music theory tutor offering encouraging tuition to all ages and abilities.

In my guitar lessons we would begin with working on posture and technique; with careful regard for handling the instrument correctly, and how to make a well-rounded sound. The majority of the lesson would focus on the piece(s) of music that you are learning, with a view to improving your sound, technique and musical expression over a long term period. I will also offer practice plans to guide your practice between lessons.

Should you wish to pursue an academic musical path, this tuition includes guidance with preparation for your classical guitar or music theory examinations, where we would also work on developing your musicianship through aural training. You may also request lessons in composition, harmony, figured bass and composing a melody.

For students who do not wish to pursue an academic path through playing guitar, lute, composing music, or understanding music theory, my lessons can be suited to your individual ambitions while still aiming for the highest possible standard of musicianship and enjoyment. Should you wish to study acoustic or electric guitar I can provide tuition in these areas of guitar music.

If you are a singer or instrumentalist who is interested in guitar or lute accompaniment for your performance exam, workshop or masterclass, I offer basso continuo accompaniment on the lute for music from the baroque era. I can also provide accompaniment on the guitar for classical, romantic and modern repertoire.

I am happy to teach one individual or a group of students at one time, and I teach from home in a living space ideal for lessons and workshops. My VOG certificate is available upon request. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

About Me

As an active lutenist and guitarist I perform as a soloist, as well as in chamber music concerts and opera productions. I am a member of a variety of ensembles such as Camera degli Angeli, London Gala Orchestra, Sound a Parley, and Dellingr Duo, with whom I perform in the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. I also give talks to the public about early music and plucked string instruments featured in historical paintings. I am motivated and passionate about performing music to the highest possible standard, and making a positive contribution to cultural and musical life.

Experience / Qualifications

Music Tutor, Self-employed (December 2012–present)
Music Tutor, City of Cardiff Council (October 2008–February 2012)

My experience as a music tutor has largely been developed through my own private teaching, and I have successfully guided students through their performance and theory examinations for British examination boards such as ABRSM and Trinity. I have also gained experience in education through several British music education programmes designed to support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. This involved working as a guitar tutor for the City of Cardiff Music Education Service and as an orchestra coach for Making Music, Changing Lives. In these classes and workshops I gave tuition to pupils in small groups and individually on a weekly basis in classical, acoustic and electric guitar. During this time I successfully engaged them with the enjoyment of making music and expanded their existing knowledge of the subject.

Piano Lessons for Beginners and Amateurs. Classical, Pop, Improvisation and Own Compositions.
I am a professional classical pianist, accompanist, singer, and composer with a Bachelor's Degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and a Master's Degree at the Royal Conservatorium in the Hague. For 6 years now, I have been teaching students of all levels between 5 and 60 years old. Lessons are based on your level, interests, and goals. Together we can find out if you are keener on classical repertoire, or if you want to play your favorite pop-music, some beautiful soundtrack from a movie you like or compose/improvise new pieces. With my experience in teaching diverse genres, I will help you explore the music that you like. The central pillars I always work with are technique and creativity, which are much more connected than you would expect! While we advance, I also introduce the basics (or more deeply, if you are interested) of music theory to learn to communicate with each other in musical terms (chords, keys, score reading, etc.). And above all, the goal is to enjoy and have fun!

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 lessons in Brussels for Beginners and Intermediate - Acoustic & Electric - all ages are welcome!
Guitar lessons in Brussels. Playing guitar is not only fun, but it's also good for you. Put down that game controller for an hour a day, because playing guitar is a great way to exercise your brain. Did you know that studies show that playing a musical instrument both improves memory and activates creative thinking in the player's brain? Amplification and connection cables provided during lessons at the teacher's home. Students only need to bring their guitar and a desire to learn.
