Plucklessons
Plucklessons - Guitar - Focus your expressive energy and transform it into music...
If you are looking to focus your creative energy and have tools to express yourself in the music, this can be a good option. My wish is to be able to offer the student the possibility of finding his way according to his concerns, understanding the instrument as a tool incorporated to the individual to express himself. If you are able to clarify your musical ideas, you will be more communicative when you play music. Communicative of what can not be expressed in words, like that potential that you don´t know yet about yourself... Since 2009 I work in the teaching of musical language with guitar from children to adults of all levels. I currently work in the Master of the Hochschule fur Musik, Basel. For now, I can offer lessons in English, Spanish and Italian. The Deutsch is coming soon. For any question, I am at your disposal. Welcome :)

Cécilia
Learn to sing! Singing for all levels in Basel and Basel-Land
As a singer, studying at the Conservatory, I provide singing lessons for all levels students: beginner, intermediate and advanced. I focus on vocal technique, good choice of the repertoire and interpretation. Learning singing and developping one's instrument requires regularity in the practice, the best option is thus to plan a lesson every week or every two weeks.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years 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.

Matt
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!
