    Guitar lessons (Acoustic, Electric, and Bass) and music composition

    The Guitar is undoubtedly one of the most popular instruments of the modern age. It is so versatile and used in many genres ranging from Classical music, to Death Metal and even Electronic Music.

    I will teach you the basics of playing the guitar, and I'll spice it up later with my experience on composition and song-writing. We will learn by example through the famous songs that shaped our understanding of the guitar. Whether you prefer singer-songwriter style songs, or thrash metal we'll get there together.

    I will teach mainly using the guitar tablature format, we can do sheet music which is generally unneeded for anything besides classical, but I will need refresh my music sheet reading skills as I haven't had to read any in the last 10 years.

    Extra information

    Bring your good spirits, your favorite guitar if you have one. If not I can help you buy one, or you could practice on one of my guitars.

    About Me

    I am a software developer and a multi-instrumentalist; I play guitar (acoustic, electric, bass and ukulele), drums and keyboards. I have my own one-man-band project that I work on on-and-off. I've always enjoyed teaching. My fondest experiences have been things like teaching swing dancing and German to refugees, helping undergraduates with mathematics and programming.

    My approach to teaching is generally more hands-on with application of theory. I will dissect songs with you, and rhythm sections to show why this melody/rhythm is good as opposed to something else. I believe theory is indeed important, but in the end it has to be applied to an instrument. And the application is as fine an art as the theory. So I prefer to start from the application's side.

    Education

    I am a Data Scientist by profession, and I have a Masters degree in Computer Informatics with focus on NLP (Natural Language Processing). But music is much more fun to me, and I would love to make the switch soon if I can!

    Experience / Qualifications

    Music-wise, I have been playing guitar for 13 years, and drums and piano for 6 years.
    Drums, as with bass guitar are the backbone of any good song, and the foundation upon which the music is built. Despite not being as famous as lead vocals or lead guitar. Drums in my opinion is much more fun, at all levels of performance. I will teach you how to play the drums, how to fit the style to the genre and we will learn by practice by breaking down the famous classics, and explain what part drums played to make these classics so good. We will use my electronic drumset, which is not as good as the real thing but is definitely good for starters. There are ways you can practice at home without a drumset as well. And we can expand later and rent a studio room, where I can jam with you on the guitar even!
    Arabic is the sixth most spoken language in the world. Spoken by about 420 million natives, and many more that know it as a foreign language for religious reasons. Arabic is known for its encompassing vocabulary, beautiful poetry, and a sense for the melodrama! I will teach you either Standard Arabic or Egyptian (your choice), with a focus on the amazing sides of the language and the culture such as poetry, great movies, TV, and so on. And of course we will hopefully have great discussions in Arabic!

    Guitar Tutoring in Berlin for all ages and abilities.
    I am an experienced and enthusiastic guitar tutor from Leeds, England, living in Berlin. I have a bachelor’s degree in jazz guitar from Leeds College of Music although I also play and teach rock, pop, funk, folk and indie music. In lessons I aim to get students playing something they know as soon as possible in order to get excited about progress early on. We balance this with paying attention to proper technique and having one eye on the theory behind what we are playing to broaden your understand of how music works. I am actively engaged in playing within the music scene and have a real excitement for all types of music, whether it’s learning your first chords on guitar or working on improvisation or music theory. We'll go at the right pace for you and achieve your goals together. I have experience teaching all ages and abilities of students, having taught in primary and secondary schools as well as private tuition for adults. From complete beginners to preparing a student for their college auditions. Lessons are tailored to suit the needs of the student, in order to have lessons which push you to learn to the best of your ability whilst still being fun and musical.

    Marianna
    Classical guitar lessons in Berlin with professional musician
    Hello, My name is Marianna and I am 27 years old. I am currently pursuing my music studies in the Universität der Künste Berlin. From a young age, I got very passionate about classical guitar and started off at the age of 10 . I formally commenced my music studies at the State Conservatory Of Athens , graduating with the highest distinction. Along with my music studies , I studied International and European Economics graduating from the Athens University. During my studies , I was teaching private guitar lessons. This experience provided the ideal platform to continue my music studies in Brussels and now in Berlin I teach classical guitar using scores, not tablatures. All students from the very first lesson use the instrument . My method with my students is to develop bases to approach a musical score through the knowledge of solfeggio and theory . I am able to teach in English and Greek having also a basic knowledge of French and German. I can travel throughout Berlin Region. Thank you, Marianna
