I am a brazilian musician graduated in classical guitar, with experience in jazz and brazilian music. Everything from bossa nova, samba, choro and latin music in general is my speciality. Have been teaching for 15 years now, i developed a way of teaching music based on what the student needs to develop his/her potential. It can be more practical and playfull, or theoretical and methodical.

Music lessons in a variety of genres, tailor-made for whatever the student (child or adult) requires. I can teach in a strict "classical" style or any song that the student might want to learn (as a composer I am quite savvy in arranging existing songs in any style and for any level). Input (daily practise) is required from the student for productive lessons and, if necessary, homework is given every week. I have experience with individual or group lessons.

Nicoló
Do you want to learn how to play saxophone in Amsterdam?
Music is the best way of communication in the world, the most international language and an easy way of sharing. Teaching means a lot for me; it allows me to pass on beautiful things I have learnt and at the same time to improve thanks to my students' feedback. Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results. We can work out many different topics together, such as learning tunes, technique, improvising, as well as approaching theory, reading, circular breathing, altissimo register and multiphonics... The lessons usually take place in my studio close by Javaplein in Amsterdam or by my house in Bos en Lommer. I work mornings and evenings as well as in the week end. Saxophone is fun! Contact me and get a first lesson as soon as possible, I am looking forward to meeting you.

Pablo
PROFESSIONAL GUITARIST OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN TEACHING - ONLINE GUITAR COURSES (SKYPE + TRACKS AND EXERCISES PERSONNALI
The Skype online guitar lessons allow you to make a personalized learning in any place that the student thinks comfortable. Thanks to my experience as a teacher, I discovered that online courses are a good option for students of all levels, offering the possibility to be personally followed on Skype plus digital sheets written each course and access to tracks recorded especially for the practice of all day. Method For more than 10 years of experience as a teacher, I developed several methods and exercises for teaching guitar and music (composition, improvisation, harmony, etc.) for students of all levels. Over time, I realized that the most important thing is to have the ability to adapt to each student. I think the main thing is that students get to find the motivation to practice regularly with pleasure to progress in this instrument. The most common is the use of songs that the student chooses and take advantage of this to work on more general concepts of music and guitar that are important to gain a solid foundation and without bad habits. For more advanced students learning is determined together to set a personal goal.
