Trusted teacher: 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.

Trusted teacher: I specialize in Latin American music. My goal is not only to teach the student to play guitar (or to help him further), but also to get acquainted with various folk music forms from Latin America both in practice on the guitar but also through listening and researching the various forms. For the advanced guitarist to further expand his knowledge within the classical repertoire from Latin America with unknown works and for those who are interested, learning to compose is also one of my goals. Music on its width. Not learning to play songs but composing your own work.
Have you been curious how guitarists can come up with a solo on the spot and play for what seems like hours? That is exactly the point of this lesson. We will focus on you learning a few basic scales so that you can improvise over most rock and blues songs. Progressively, we will build your finger muscle strength, and correct techniques for playing. I have taught past students and got them to successfully learn the basics of improvisation that lead them to develop their own soloing style. This improvisation course is made for beginners.
Trusted teacher: *NOTE: This class is not currently available due to being abroad, Thank you for your interest! -Phil Music is a creative and fun way to express yourself.

By providing me with your favourite tunes, I will also walk you through the process of "reverse-engineering" the track in order to recreate the music at your own pace.

Trusted teacher: My name is Piotr, I am 27 and come from Poland. I've studied guitar first at the University of Arts in Graz, Austria and now doing a master degree at Conservatorium van Amsterdam. I can describe my approach to music best by paraphrasing a great composer and arranger Michael Gibbs: 'What most people want to hear is music that is very simple, but played extremely well'. In music there is a very thin line between what's easy and hard, what's simple and complex. If you like the idea I can help you navigate through the universe of music you like or hear regardless of the genre or your level of advancement. Here are the examples of problems I can help you solve: – arranging songs you like on the guitar, – improving technique by playing music you like, – upgrading the campfire chops (been there, done that!) – composing indie lines and sounds, talking about pedals, – learning to improvise, – learning jazz standards, – basics of recording and making demos and backing tracks, but I am more than open to follow your lead!

Trusted teacher: Music is so powerful, and learning to play an instrument even slightly fluently can open a whole other part of your life that can remain in the shadows. Ask any performer! :) It has huge benefits for social, personal, mental and physical health - you can lift peoples moods, and lose your self in beautiful meditation. My tutoring is tailor made for the individual's needs - the main area to cover are the little steps you take to get addicted to practicing, so that you can play without thinking. Along the way we can talk about units e.g. to cover specific styles, like classical, jazz or pop to improvising, reading music and learning some music you love. All it takes is a little patience and the world will change for you.
Trusted teacher: I've been giving individual guitar lessons to both beginners and more advanced guitarists since 6 years. I have a concept which gives comprehensive knowledge to guitarist and my goal is to train the student to be able to pick up melodies and chords by ear after some time (so except guitar playing which is always priority, a little bit of theory, ear training , exercises for knowing positions and scales, chord voicings, improvisation techniques, licks, riffs etc ..). So one of the goals is to give you necessary tools which should enable you to develop your skills without a teacher after some time. Possible genres: jazz, rock, pop, blues, latin, bossa nova, samba. Also, lessons by Skype are possible. I teach in English and German, also I can understand Dutch but I am not a fluent speaker. I prepared several students for the entrance exams for the conservatories in Vienna with very high success. I worked as a teacher in a primary music school, so I have experience in teaching kids as well.

Joris - Amsterdam$55
Trusted teacher: Guitar lessons for beginners are aimed at not learning wrong habits in the initial phase. The guitar is an easy instrument, but unlearning something that is not functional is always heavy. We immediately make music without having to read notes. Chords, rhythms and strumming, that's what it's all about! My name is Joris, I have been playing guitar for 30 years and I teach 7 of them. My sympathy goes out to those students who have fallen for the sound and shape of the guitar, who love music with all their heart and want to play for themselves, first and foremost!
