Learn How to Play the Acoustic Guitar From Beginners Level

I can start teaching you the basics and then have you strumming or plucking away in a short amount of time.
You have the option of choosing a song that you would like to learn and I will teach it to you. I can teach you how to read tabs (if you do not already know). I teach from the basics up until you are confidently able to play any song.
I am very patient when it comes to teaching. I have experience in guitar teaching and have taught people who were complete beginners, and helped them to be able to independently play any song they want.

Manuel
Private lessons of Flamenco Guitar in Geneva and in Valais.
We work the techniques, rhythmic styles and harmony typical of flamenco. Once the pupil has acquired a certain mastery of the instrument, he can learn to accompany song and dance in order to complete his learning; let's say that the accompaniment of song and dance is what will allow the student to live a real experience of flamenco and thus feed on the ingredients necessary to learn and understand all the richness and complexity of this art. The accompaniment of the song: At first, we will study rhythmic formulas on precise chords, then in a second time, we will play these formulas with the singer (recorded on audio tracks). In order to make learning more lively, the student will be able to accompany the teacher who will sing certain styles and will be able to participate in monthly workshops to accompany song and dance with a singer, a dancer and other students. The student can also film during the lesson to be able to work at home more efficiently.

Daniel
Flamenco guitar for all
With 18 years of experience teaching guitar and more than 20 years in socio-cultural animation, I have also successfully led many courses in schools with recognized pedagogical qualities such as The Rudolf School Steiner and the Active School, or in Andalusian associations in Geneva, Friborg, Nyon and Martigny. I also accompany the dance lessons of various dancers (living in Switzerland, Spain and France) regularly or during workshops in Spain and Switzerland: Ana la China (CH), Antonio Perujo (CH), Maud la Manuela (CH), Naomi Guerrero (CH), Melissa Salcedo (CH), Octavia de la Vega (CH), Jose Candela (Grenada), La Tati (Madrid), Carmen Ledesma (Sevilla), Manuela Carpio (Jerez), Ana Maria Lopez (Jerez), Raimundo Benitez (Grenada), Manuel Guitieres (Monpellier). My stage experience alongside local and internationally renowned artists (Enrique Bermuda "el Piculabe", Matias Lopez "el Mati", Juanillorro, Sandra Santisteban, Ana Barba, Melchor Campos, Paloma Pradal, Manolo Carmona "El Huelebien", Yolanda Almodovar, Andres Gil, Maria Bertos or Juan Manuel Cortes, Marta Themo, Stéphane Montangero) in organizations ranging from local associations to international flamenco festivals (Geneva, Mont-de-Marsan), as well as my apprenticeship with various masters ( Jose Manuel Tudela, Domingo Rubichi, Manuel Losada "el Carbonero", Agustin de la Fuente, Jesus El Guardia, Daniel Manzanas, Enrique Bermudez) and the fact that I played other musical styles (blues, rock, Brazilian music) for 12 years before diving into the world of flamenco make me a versatile guitarist and listens to others. Lessons: Over time, I have developed a method that adapts to the needs and abilities of each student to guide them progressively and playfully towards a growing autonomy. Thus, the student is led on the way towards the accompaniment of singing, dancing and composition. The technical, theoretical and rhythmic baggage it needs is introduced in a personalized way so that this last one lives it the way most in agreement with its mode of learning. Flamenco being of oral tradition we will not normally use music theory for its learning but mainly listening and imitation (however, if necessary I can also explain some rhythmic or harmonic particularities using this language for those whose understanding go through this). In order for everyone to remember what they have learned in the current lesson, I systematically devote a brief moment of video or audio recording with a slow take that includes a synthesis of explanations and a real-time take. If the student does not have anything to film or record, I can do it with my phone and send the file to him by e-mail. The latter finds in this way at any time a summary of each course. For beginners guitarists, I propose a grip of the instrument With traditional ultra - simplified melodic and rhythmic motifs, the first technical bases are thus acquired by playing rather than under the constraint of tedious exercises (which I can also propose if the student feels the need). We will gradually expand them according to the progress of the student.

John
Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level/Beginner/ Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons with a focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms from a broad base of musical genres. Classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. Each lesson is designed to keep the student at the peak of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing their own technical skill. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their passion to the music they want to play. In the first lesson, we can get to know each other and you can get an idea for how the lessons will be taught while letting me know what elements you'd like to focus on in the future.

Hernan
Berklee College of Music Graduate offers private lessons of Guitar, Harmony & Improvisation in Utrecht
The way I teach actually depends entirely on the student. The way I explain the concepts, plan and structure the lessons and approach each subject all depends on whether the student is a beginner, intermediate or advanced, and whether he or she has some experience on the subject. Each student has different needs and different abilities. It's just a matter of getting to know the student, in order to identify both the weaknesses and strengths on which to work.
