    Guitar Lessons - all ages and ability levels welcome!

    Hi everyone! My name is Curragh and I am a guitar teacher from the UK.

    Learning an instrument is hugely rewarding and a great investment, one that I believe is accessible to anyone. Perhaps you're intrigued by the guitar and want to give it a go... maybe you are a parent looking to relax for an hour and have fun or enrich your child’s development and give them a skill they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.

    A little about my background: I come from a musical family; I am a lifelong lover of music with a bachelor's degree in Jazz Guitar from Leeds Conservatoire and a BTEC diploma with distinction in Music Practice. I have played in many different ensembles and have attended the Bath International Guitar Festival in the UK, on a scholarship.

    My teaching philosophy is that the ears are just as important to train as the hands and I integrate this into my lessons. It is also important to enjoy playing and feel excited by it however, as this is the best motivator for students! It's how I learned after all...

    I am happy to teach absolute beginners through to advanced students, ages 7 and up. If you have a particular style of music you are interested in or some favourite songs you've always wanted to learn, we can cover them!

    If you are a more advanced and want to bring your playing to the next level, I can coach you so you develop your unique 'voice' on the instrument and have technique to burn.

    Piano Lessons in Berlin, Mitte with a Professional Musician
    I'm currently studying with Dr. Yossi Reshef, and teaching a technique based on a free wrist, loose arms, weight play, motion control, and deliberate practice methods. Maybe you have hurts or technical issues while playing? that is a clear indicator for a wrong technique. It is actually possible to detect all kind of hurts and lead them back to techniqual mistakes. I know how to analyze your hand, arm and wrist motions and solve problems for you, also difficult passages can feel much easier suddenly. I'm a classical pianist, specializing in a repertoire of classical composers, such as Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Beethoven, Schubert, and Mozart, but I'm open to all Genres of piano music, whichever you would like to learn. Depending on your goals, we create a schedule for you to reach it. It is not essential for me on which level you are right now, you can either play for the first time or further advance your piano techniques. Beside piano technique, I can also teach you how to accompaign yourself or someone else singing, and how to easily arrange a song for piano. We can practice at my studio in Mitte close to U Französische Strasse with a Steinway&Sons Grand piano, or in my studio close to U Kleistpark, where I can teach also early morning or late evening.

    Guitar lessons at your home or online through skype/zoom
    Do you have a guitar that feels lonely in your home ? Would like to be able to play some beautiful guitar music? If so, my goal is to give you everything you need to become an autonomous musician : technical skills, understanding of music theory, sight-reading (nothing to be afraid of!), and development of your very own musical sensibility - all while enjoying yourself. I'm a diplomed classical guitar teacher in France, finished a Performance Master in Basel Musik Akademie and am now pursuing a Music Pedagogy Master. My greatest joys are to perform and to teach, and generally speaking sharing my love for my instrument. I have 8 years experience in teaching and always strive to find better strategies and most adapted methods for every pupil that I meet, from 6 to 70+ years old. ===NEW ONLINE FORMULA=== With the lockdown situation, I now offer two different possibilites : - live video lessons, charged at the hour like an usual face-to-face lesson, at the frequency you choose ; - You send me as many videos and questions that you like; I answer under 24 hours with either text, scores and PDF material, video or audio recording, with the feedback and assignments you need, plus one check-in live 30 minutes call every two weeks, if you wish to. That's the good option if you like working by yourself on your own time, don't want to add appointments in your week, and want to get a lot of value. If you're interested in starting online classical guitar lessons with me, please send me a message so we can discuss which option would fit you best! I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

    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.

    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!

    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. Come and enjoy learning more about Music and Guitar!!
