    Guitar Lessons - Gitaarles - Classical, Pop, Rock, Folk, and More - In English or Nederlands

    I am a Canadian classical guitarist and guitar instructor offering lessons in either English or Dutch. I am primarily educated and professionally active in classical guitar, but I teach in a variety of styles and genres. Every student has different goals, backgrounds, and abilities, so I teach each student with a custom-made approach. I work to help students develop strong guitar technique, musical knowledge, and literacy, and to be able to achieve their own goals with whatever music they want to learn and play.

    I have years of teaching experience, both in Canada and the Netherlands, so I am comfortable working with students of different ages and levels. I hold a bachelor of music degree and a master of music degree from the University of British Columbia. I am currently pursuing a second master's in guitar performance at Conservatorium Maastricht.

    I can teach in-home lessons or lessons at my studio, the price will vary depending on location, please contact me for exact pricing.

    Ik ben een Canadese klassieke gitarist en gitaarleraar die lessen in het Engels of Nederlands biedt. Ik ben voornamelijk opgeleid en professioneel actief in klassieke gitaar, maar ik geef les in verschillende stijlen en genres. Elke student heeft verschillende doelen, achtergrond en vaardigheden, dus ik geef elke student een op maat gemaakte aanpak. Ik werk om studenten te helpen een sterke gitaartechniek, muzikale kennis en geletterdheid te ontwikkelen en hun eigen doelen te bereiken met welke muziek dan ook die ze willen leren en spelen.

    Ik heb jarenlange ervaring met lesgeven, zowel in Canada als in Nederland, dus ik vind het prettig om met studenten van verschillende leeftijden en niveaus te werken. Ik heb een bachelorgraad en een master in muziek aan de University of British Columbia. Momenteel volg ik een tweede master in gitaarperformance aan het Conservatorium van Maastricht.

    About Me

    Michael is a Canadian classical guitarist who performs a variety of music, re-imagining historic and new works on the instrument. Michael fell in love with the classical guitar because of the variety of colors and textures available in its rich repertoire, and that’s what he strives to share with audiences around the world. He has performed as a soloist and chamber instrumentalist across Canada, the northwestern United States, and the Netherlands, and has been heard in solo recitals for guitar societies from Ottawa to Vancouver and the Tri-cities. He has been a soloist with the Ambrose Chamber Orchestra and the Calgary Arts Orchestra and has performed chamber music alongside artists such as Jonathan Crow and Joseph Johnson. Michael works to expand the repertoire for the classical guitar, both through transcription and commissioning new music, which is why he gravitates especially towards modern, contemporary, and baroque music. His debut CD ‘Sketches’, recorded in 2015, includes new music written for Michael by Toronto-based composer William Beauvais. In September of 2019, he will be performing a tour of concerts alongside the Canadian guitarist and composer Nathan Bredeson, where he will premiere new music he has commissioned in a program of all Canadian music for guitar. He also performs in Duo Tinüviel with soprano Jessica Turje, including in 2018 for the Mountain View International Festival of Chamber Music and Song. Aside from their regular performances in the Netherlands, they will be going in July of 2019 to perform and take part in the Camino Artes Guitar workshop in Carrion de Los Condes, Spain. Michael currently lives and teaches in Utrecht, the Netherlands, while he studies at Conservatorium Maastricht with Carlo Marchione.

    Classical Guitar methods and techniques, repertoire and basic theory
    I have been playing Classical Guitar for 14 years. I have always practiced the greatest repertoire from Ancient Music (Dowland, Sanz, Bach), Modern and Contemporary (Paganini, Tarrega, Villa-Lobos, Brouwer) while experimenting other genres (Blues, Rock, Ragtime, Progressive, Pop) and composing music myself. My goal is to valorise an activity that is both methodical and rigorous as well as creative and entertaining as Music itself.

    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.

    I give acoustic and classical guitar on every level and in most styles. On the piano I teach beginners and on average advanced students. I have extensive experience at various music schools in South Holland, as a private teacher at home and in my own studio.

Online lessons are actually just like regular lessons, but you can stay at home and play on your own instrument. All the music you need can be downloaded for free on a link that you get when you take lessons. I am flexible with teaching times, but moving is usually possible. Due to the time difference, the lessons are in the morning Dutch time. Up to about 14.00. I studied guitar at the Tilburg Conservatory and later piano during my conductor training at the SNK. I also have broad experience at primary schools as well as in secondary education as a specialist teacher music and music teacher.

    (Bass) Guitar, Music theory and Solfège in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht
    Hello (future) musician! Do you also have a song in your head that you would like to play? Always wanted to play electric or acoustic guitar or bass guitar? Have you never touched a string, or are you advanced and looking for new challenges? I have been giving guitar lessons since 2007 with great pleasure. In addition to these private lessons, I worked at the Guitar Academy in Amsterdam, at Muziekles Den Bosch and at Art in Music in Utrecht, next to my work as an executive musician. I studied at the Rockacademie in Tilburg and Musicology at Utrecht University. Broad interests, reflected in the hoevelheid styles I play and education (from pop and rock to salsa, tango and gypsy to metal and jazz). I also give solfège and music theory. It does not matter how exotic your interest, I can help you get better! In addition, I can choose and arrange songs for you, so that there is no limit to your imagination: learn to play what you want to learn to play. These lessons are not given in a large, impersonal music school: lesson duration and lesson dates are discussed and are flexible. Personal and smooth, easier for everyone. Besides guitar enthusiast teaching is a big passion of mine, and I think that is essential to be able to offer good lessons. Whether I teach you how to play your first songs in a few lessons, or whether we are going to pick up some tough pieces, it is a pleasant and productive learning process. Lessons in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht or at extra cost at home. If you have questions, mail or call!
