    Guitar lessons. Learn to play guitar, ukulele or bass.

    I teach music online (Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp...) and in-person in Brussels and Waterloo, Belgium. Nearly 30 years of experience. 800+ students taught.

    All lessons are individual lessons (no group classes). The focus is on learning modern styles of the past, say, 80 years: rock, blues, jazz, reggae, singer-songwriter, folk, pop, country, bossa nova... rather than older classical or traditional Spanish guitar music.

    Also, I arrange band workshops, recording workshops, and learn to jam sessions, to get you playing with other musicians and performing/recording. This has resulted in two local rock bands... The Manneken Pistols and The KBH Boogie Band who both play regularly around Brussels and who were featured recently on Bruzz TV.

    Guitar lessons (acoustic & electric) for all ages
    The guitar lesson will allow you to have an initiation for a person who has no notion about it or who is not necessarily foreign to certain concepts related around the instrument. The work will be carried out in stages, taking into account the level of the student, the objective pursued as well as the time dedicated, all this in a structured, fun way and above all taking pleasure. It will be a question of basic elements such as the work of major/minor open chords, scales, the development of the musical ear and gradually going into the depth of certain styles such as blues, funk, jazz, bossa nova, samba, pop. , rock to dissect other elements enriching the game on the guitar. This progressive work put in place will consolidate the foundations for developing learning over time.

    I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
    Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

    Guitar workshops: personalized lessons / private training
    Folk or classical acoustic guitar. The teaching philosophy is adapted to the level of each individual, according to the pace of work and motivation. For example, for beginners: Technique of the plectrum or fingers, coordination and correction of the right and left hand. Learning basic chords, simple themes, simple rhythms, reading tablatures (…). For intermediaries: development of rhythm, construction of chords, writing of tablatures, basic notions of harmony (…). Depending on your goals, you can learn, if you wish, to play 60 to 80% of current music from the first lessons, which often use the same chords and the same techniques. The objectives take into consideration the following points: -Study of various playing techniques, chords, harmony, music of your choice, rhythm, with reading of tablature, teaching structured around the repertoire you like, technique of developing the musical ear - Discovery of the neck, notes and basic positions of open chords - Left / right hand coordination and rhythm exercises for the right hand - Learning of different pieces of your choice - Left hand control exercises, speed and precision - Learning arpeggios - Work around muscle memory - Learning improvisation, musical play with others - Ear training: use your ears to find chords, melodies, sounds and techniques used -Spend a pleasant moment of exchange, without unnecessary institutional pressure, while obtaining concrete results -Understand and discover the many facets of an exciting and user-friendly instrument - Benefit from personalized advice on your posture and certain pitfalls to avoid when starting alone -Adjust and clarify your self-taught knowledge - Learn tablatures / tabs & in English. Note : - Possibility to use the guitar available on site, during the test phase. - As our teacher is also a singing teacher, it is possible to combine the two disciplines: guitar + vocal instrument, and to work on synchronization, style and accuracy. - Possibility of offering this course (birthday, party, Christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. THE TEACHER : Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field, in renowned international public and private establishments, with careful pedagogy and methodology as the watchwords. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Friborg-Neuchâtel-Montreux-Bâle-Sion-Sierre-Morges-Bienne. But currently, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (ex: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). At your request, I therefore continue to offer them.

    Classical guitar lessons for all types of levels
    Graduated from various Conservatories in France and the Netherlands and rich in several years of teaching, I offer classical guitar lessons for all levels. My objective is to establish an exchange with the student, to seek with him the technical, musical, physical means, to develop a coherent musical discourse. My lessons are also a way for the student to conceive and then fully express all his musical abilities. I adapt to all types of repertoire depending on the choice of the student: South American music, classical, variety etc. Working mainly with scores, it also seems essential to me to introduce notions of musical training during lessons. I offer lessons at my home but can also come to the student's home.

    Classical guitar lessons and music theory in Brussels
    Hello, my name is Steven and I have been a musician since the age of 13. In 2008 I fell in love with the classical guitar for its soft sound, its versatility in the repertoire as well as the "school" side which allows you to develop your musical understanding as well as the different playing techniques, and this, thanks to centuries. of manuscript and schooling evolution. I studied in private lessons with Johan Fostier, conservatory teacher and world-renowned classical guitarist, as well as at several music academies from 2008 to 2017 before perfecting my training at the Ghent conservatory. I have been giving classical guitar lessons integrating music theory since 2015. Cordially.
