About Me

My passion is music and helping students find their voice on their instrument and to help them achieve their goals; whether it’s playing songs, passing exams, understanding theory or preparing for a performance etc.
With infinite patience and empathy I focus on your strengths and weaknesses and will gently encourage you to broaden your repertoire, break down barriers and polish your skills. I am very good at identifying areas of improvement that will not only instil confidence but will also take your playing to new heights.

Education

I studied at the University of West London where I got my 'Masters Degree' in music and I am also RGT graded on guitar and bass guitar

My Musical Beginnings
My fascination for music began at an early age listening to recordings and going to as many gigs as i could. I was given an acoustic guitar for my 10th birthday and haven't put it down since. My interest was mostly in Rock as a child (with the big power chords and even bigger hair styles but don't tell anyone)! With this solid foundation, my tastes then broadened and after a few years of playing i started playing bass guitar. I have been learning both instruments even since, along with many other musical instruments and equipment.

Experience / Qualifications

Teaching Experience
With over 15 years of teaching a wide variety of students of varying levels and abilities at Chichester College, and now offering private music tuition, I understand that everyone picks things up at different speeds and has their own way of learning. I adapt my methods and approach to help achieve each students potential. I cover many different musical styles and have studied many of the greatest musicians in the world!

Performing Experience
I have been playing live professionally since the age of 14, from solo performance to full 8 piece bands and everything in-between. Folk, Country, Rock, Pop, Funk, Blues and Rock & Roll/Swing. In addition to venue gigs, I’ve also performed at many Festivals and occasionally, when my schedule allows it, fill in to help out other bands on short notice.

Session Musician & Studio Work
I studied Music Technology at college and went on to work as a Music Engineer at Whaus Haus Recording Studio for 5 years where i played with and recorded many great artists. Working in studio is a different experience from playing live, and takes additional skills. These skills can also be applied to your guitar learning or if you already have some musical experience and want to record some tracks, I now offer recording sessions in my studio.

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

Pedro
Guitar lessons for students of all levels in the Lake Zurich area
The program will be tailored according to the student goals. (leisure, professional development) focusing on; basic knowledge of the guitar, basic chords and more advanced chords, scales and modes, theory and practice of improvisation, study of a repertoire, right hand technique (fingers or pick), music theory and rhythm. An understanding of what are the goals and interests of student, as well as their skills is the most effective way to pass on knowledge.

Classical Guitar, Mandolin, Music theory lessons by enthusiastic tutor and performer
Enthusiastic guitar tutor and performer. I started playing classical guitar at the age of 6, and my formal musical education begun at the age of 9 when I started attending a music school in Croatia. After 6 years of primary school I continued studying classical guitar at secondary music school in Varazdin, Croatia. During that period I received training in classical harmony, Counterpoint (polyphony), Solfeggio, Music history and gained plenty experience at orchestral playing and choral singing. I decided to continue my musical education in Manchester where I was studying undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music and currently I am studying at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague. As a performing guitarist, I have successfully participated and won prizes in a number of international competitions in the UK, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Hercegovina. Although my studies are primarily related to classical music, I am comfortable playing and performing music in a range of other styles and genres. I am also experienced with mandolin and Croatian folk instrument called tamburitza.

Guitar lessons + Alternative playing styles and Genres
I am a guitar teacher from Edinburgh, Scotland with a strong focus on developing practical musicianship and enjoyment of playing the guitar. I can help you from the beginner level into finding your own style and relationship to music. The lessons heavily revolve around the musical areas that you are interested in, we will do things like look at your favourite guitarists and songs, breaking them down into their fundamental parts, and developing the class on how to understand what you are playing. I have many years experience playing in live bands and can help you in many ways with developing your playing for groups and performances. I can also help with the recording aspect of playing music, both solo and with groups. Here are some of the genres that I love to teach: Alternative and Classic Rock Air tapping, Opening Tunings Classical and Spanish Classical Heavier and Experimental Genres Ambient and Psychedelic with effects pedals Playing with Fretless/ 7 & 8 string guitar I like our lessons to be structured and goal orientated, we often have an online lesson diary together where I keep notes of everything we are doing in the lessons, where you can add your own notes and things you would like to work on. I find this is very useful to keep you progressing with the guitar at a good pace. Please just ask for more information :)
