About Me

University trained at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, CT, USA. I teach all styles of music, with exception of classical guitar. My approach is based off of music theory, as I believe it is very important to have that base of knowledge. (Teach a man a fish... You know the saying) My favourite students are the the ones who are willing to put the time in. Learning the guitar is a difficult, yet incredibly fun and rewarding task. But it takes hard work and practice.

I have played in bands for many years and have gained a lot of experience. I am very well versed in all guitar equipment and working with other musicians.

Education

Bachelors of Arts in Music- Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz @ Hartt School of Music, W. Hartford, CT, USA
Area of Study- Jazz Studies - Guitar

Private Lessons for many years prior

Experience / Qualifications

Semi Professional Guitarist and Musician with 20 years of playing and 6 years of teaching experience. I have played in bands for that entire time and can teach how the equipment is used and how to jam with others.

Georgios
Piano, Singing, Theory, Analysis, History, Solfège lessons
En tant que docteur de musique diplômé de 3 pays (Angleterre, USA, Allemagne) et publié par des titres musicologiques renommés (Perspectives of New Music, Lexikon des Orchesters) je crois pouvoir partager des idées nouvelles et intéressantes avec mes élèves. Ce parcours diverse a été possible à cause de ma motivation à explorer la musique globalement en refusant d'être indoctriné par des idéologies particulières qui souvant sont associées à un certain pays ou même par le sentiment de souffisance qui caractérise l'ignorance académique de certains étudiants aujourd'hui.

Aurélien
CNSMDP GRADUATE GIVES PIANO COURSES ALL LEVELS IN PARIS (possible in english)
My name is Aurélien. Admitted to the entrance examination at the National Conservatory of Music and Dance of Paris in 2015 while having started the piano at the age of 12, I gradually developed a unique method to progress effectively and reach a professional level in just a few years of practice. Its effectiveness has been proven for 2 years by my many students, whom I accompanied with passion in their beginning as in their preparation for conservatory competitions. My method is for adults as well as children. It is based on: 1) Ear education and physical relaxation, to learn in a natural way and not lose sight of the pleasure of playing and listening 2) The fundamentals of Harmony to finally understand how the pieces are built, and manage to learn them ten times faster than if you had learned mechanically note after note. What is the system used by composers? 3) Simple and effective technical tools to quickly overcome difficulties (independence of hands, placement of the body, etc.) See you soon ! :) PS: -Payment possible by CESU -Majoration possible if displacement of more than 30 min
