    Guitar Lessons from NYU Master's of Music - Play What You Love!

    If you would like to learn the guitar and feel too intimidated to begin, you have found the right teacher. I offer one-to-one, individually tailored lessons in beginner and intermediate acoustic guitar in the comfortable, stress-free environment of my Prenzlauer Berg home.

    My name is Wei (female, 28) and I have a Bachelors of Music from King's College London and a Master's in Music Technology from New York University. I have been playing the acoustic guitar for 11 years and the flamenco guitar for 3 years. I am also lead singer in an indie band based in Berlin.

    I believe music is about what you enjoy playing and hearing. I will focus on teaching you the music YOU want to learn and to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible, while ensuring solid technique and skill.

    Additionally I can teach songwriting with the guitar.

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    About Me

    Hi! I am a guitar teacher and I give lessons in my apartment in Prenzlauer Berg.

    When I am not teaching, I am an abstract painter and singer-songwriter in an indie band.

    I believe that learning an instrument should be first and foremost an enjoyable experience. That is why I always aim to teach you what you as a student want to play. Practicing what you love also makes you more motivated which makes you learn faster. Of course I still work on building your technique, but this will be integrated into the songs you like to play.

    I look forward to teaching you!

    Guitar, Piano and Logic Pro X for any kind of students.
    I am a young professional graduated in Philosophy and specialized in blues guitar, but I can teach the basis of the instrument with any approach required by the student. I can also give basic piano lessons which can be helpful to understand the basis of theory of music through the analysis of the theory of harmony and rhythm. In fact I prefer a 360° approach to let the student understand the world of music from many perspectives. For those who are interested in music production I can also teach the basis of Logic Pro X and how to get the best from recording a guitar or any instrument.

    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 any nuts. 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!

    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.

    (Bass) Guitar, Music theory and Solfège in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht
    Hello (future) musician! Do you also have a song in your head that you would like to play? Always wanted to play electric or acoustic guitar or bass guitar? Have you never touched a string, or are you advanced and looking for new challenges? I have been giving guitar lessons since 2007 with great pleasure. In addition to these private lessons, I worked at the Guitar Academy in Amsterdam, at Muziekles Den Bosch and at Art in Music in Utrecht, next to my work as an executive musician.

Broad interests, reflected in the hoevelheid styles I play and education (from pop and rock to salsa, tango and gypsy to metal and jazz). I also give solfège and music theory. It does not matter how exotic your interest, I can help you get better! In addition, I can choose and arrange songs for you, so that there is no limit to your imagination: learn to play what you want to learn to play.
