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.

Very happy with Vinicius! He taught me (a complete beginner) very quickly how to play some of my favorite songs, which is very motivating. Like his approach and flexibility, It's a pleasure to practice guitar with him.
Very friendly, pragmatic, focussed, customer oriented. I feel well taught. Clear ecommendation.

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!

GUITAR AND / OR ZANGLES - Antwerp and surroundings - private
GUITAR and ZANGLES: For beginners and advanced, young and old. Everyone receives a personal lesson plan and objectives. You don't have to know theory. The lessons take place in a pleasant demo room. At your own pace I will get to know you the guitar and its possibilities so that you can quickly play your favorite songs. If you come to sing, I will lift you to unprecedented heights through my knowledge and years of experience. I like to coach motivated people who can make time to develop musically. I expect commitment and then it can go quickly. Several students of mine are now enjoying some success in the music bizz (not that this should be everyone's goal). Partly because of their perseverance but also because of the training they received. I am a music coach and guide you in a pleasant, successful way through an educational period. If you want more details or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Musical greetings, Danny

Apprendre à jouer à la guitare acoustique/électrique
Guitar lessons are always useful for all levels of guitar playing. the course content will depend on the level of the student and is entirely open to any preferences in songs or techniques the student wishes to learn. My course is designed in such a way that it focuses on the student's creativity with the guitar and works towards fine tuning what will eventually become the student's original song or composition. I encourage my students to tap into their creativity, since in my experience, I have found that this is where the pleasure and beauty of music tends to surface, when there are the least amount of boundaries possible. All styles of music are welcome!
