    Guitar Lessons in Friedrichshain - Video in text! Rock, Jazz, Classical

    Hello,

    My name is Kevin, and I am a passionate guitar player from Austin Texas, based here in Berlin.
    I grew up studying classical guitar and playing rock guitar (Austin is a great city for rock!), before studying Jazz at the prestigious Thornton School of Music at USC in Los Angeles. I have been performing since the age of six, with solo and group performances in various cities across America, including Los Angeles, New York, and Washington DC. In addition to this, I have been teaching guitar for over 10 years. I am currently furthering my studies at the Universität der Künste Berlin focusing back on my first love, the classical guitar!

    As a teacher, my focus is always on the individual student: what are your specific passions, strengths, and weaknesses, and what are your goals? How can I tailor our lessons to get us there? How can we have fun? In addition to this, with all my students I work to cultivate a strong and reliable technical ability. A good technique is important. It lays a strong foundation for everything and gives you the tools to truly express yourself musically.

    I am happy to teach any style (except Reggae because... Nah just kidding) and all experience levels. Beginners are so very welcome! Here are some of my focuses:

    - Fingerstyle: classical and folk style
    - Plectrum style, strumming, and single note
    - Improvisation (and all of its many applications!)
    - Scales, chords, and arpeggios
    - Advanced application of music theory
    - Intuitive understanding of rhythm, along with odd time signatures
    - Ear training (identifying notes and chords simply by hearing them)
    - Music reading
    - Using equipment to craft tones for electric guitar (amps and effects)
    - Practical understanding of recording software, which is both a wonderful creative tool and vital for professional purposes.

    I teach out of my apartment in Friedrichshain/Prenzlauer Berg.

    So let's get started!

    Cheers,
    Kevin

    Classical guitar lessons in Berlin with professional musician
    Hello, My name is Marianna and I am 27 years old. I am currently pursuing my master in music 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

    Guitar and Music Theory Lessons by a Qualified and Experienced Teacher
    I specialize in teaching about Music and how to play the Guitar. In class, I always make the effort of understanding what are the goals and interests of all students, as well as their own skills. This way we can address the issues at hand more effectively and make sure the student never loses his/her interest and focus in music and his/her instrument. I believe that an honest and friendly relationship between teacher and student is essential for this exchange of ideas to happen more clearly and fluently, and so I do my best to make everyone feel comfortable enough to share their own thoughts freely. I offer good and personalized classes. This means that there will special care with your interest in music and guitar, all basic skills will be worked upon and strengthened, all specific requests and ideas will be addressed, both improvisation and interpretation can be developed and exploring potential, achieving goals and having fun are main priorities.

    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!

    Vinicius
    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.
