About Me

My goal as a teacher is to make my students love guitar and music in general.
I love to explore different kinds of repertoire and help my students to develop their own taste and sensibility.
For the youngest I propose a playful approach to the instrument and to the music theory, with games, toys and drawings.
It is important for me to make my students feel relaxed and to work in a friendly context.

Caterina stemt zich af op het niveau en de wensen van de leerling en is vriendelijk en geduldig. Ze verdiept de leerkansen bij elke oefening en heeft oog voor het leerproces op korte en lange termijn. Ze heeft oog voor detail zonder te ontmoedigen. Bravissima! :-)
It was really good beginning. I am looking forward for my next lesson!
Prima lerares, werkt op het tempo van de leerling.
Just had my first lesson with Caterina and that was a very nice experience. She took her time to learn what I want to get out of the lessons and then quickly picked in on that with simple but effective excercises. Off to a good start!
It was a nice start. I am really happy with the first lesson taught by Caterina. She is really helpful and explains the basics quite well.

Guitar lessons for beginners and advanced players in Leuven.
For beginners: During our guitar lesson you can bring your own songs that you want to work on or together we will see what the best songs are for you and what you can learn the most from. This ranges from the basic chords that make up most pop / rock songs to playing along with the melody or accompanying yourself while singing. So you can play what you always dreamed of in no time! For advanced users: Together we look at what you want to work on in terms of rhythm, soloing or improvisation. Which styles you are familiar with or which you would like to learn to play. These lessons are ideal for you if you want to broaden your knowledge of the guitar or if it feels like you've reached a plateau you can't get past.
