This isn't a guitar lesson; this is a dynamite. Have you ever tried to play music reading a music sheet and at the same time wondered why this little dots that are occasionally accompanied by lines (I mean the notes) go together the way they go? Most probably not. But that's the point of doing philosophy alongside music. In this course we are going to learn music by questioning musical appearances. There are two goals: The surface goal is to learn how to play guitar. The music style will be up to you. Do you want punk, indie, black metal, classical or perhaps avant-garde-post-math-queercore? Chose your poison. The deepest goal is to never take two notes for granted. Each small melody, each phrase has to tell a story that hasn't been heard yet. The point is to discover it. As for qualifications, I have been studying guitar and philosophy half my life. I am currently a PhD candidate in Philosophy at UvA. I studied guitar in my hometown in Athens where I acquired soloist diploma in Classical Guitar from the Neo-classical Conservatoire of Athens.
