(Bass) Guitar, Music theory and Solfège in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht
Hello (future) musician! Do you also have a song in your head that you would like to play? Always wanted to play electric or acoustic guitar or bass guitar? Have you never touched a string, or are you advanced and looking for new challenges? I have been giving guitar lessons since 2007 with great pleasure. In addition to these private lessons, I worked at the Guitar Academy in Amsterdam, at Muziekles Den Bosch and at Art in Music in Utrecht, next to my work as an executive musician. I studied at the Rockacademie in Tilburg and Musicology at Utrecht University. Broad interests, reflected in the hoevelheid styles I play and education (from pop and rock to salsa, tango and gypsy to metal and jazz). I also give solfège and music theory. It does not matter how exotic your interest, I can help you get better! In addition, I can choose and arrange songs for you, so that there is no limit to your imagination: learn to play what you want to learn to play. These lessons are not given in a large, impersonal music school: lesson duration and lesson dates are discussed and are flexible. Personal and smooth, easier for everyone. Besides guitar enthusiast teaching is a big passion of mine, and I think that is essential to be able to offer good lessons. Whether I teach you how to play your first songs in a few lessons, or whether we are going to pick up some tough pieces, it is a pleasant and productive learning process. Lessons in Wittevrouwen, Utrecht or at extra cost at home. If you have questions, mail or call!

Guitar lessons (Acoustic, Electric, and Bass) and music composition
The Guitar is undoubtedly one of the most popular instruments of the modern age. It is so versatile and used in many genres ranging from Classical music, to Death Metal and even Electronic Music. I will teach you the basics of playing the guitar, and I'll spice it up later with my experience on composition and song-writing. We will learn by example through the famous songs that shaped our understanding of the guitar. Whether you prefer singer-songwriter style songs, or thrash metal we'll get there together. I will teach mainly using the guitar tablature format, we can do sheet music which is generally unneeded for anything besides classical, but I will need refresh my music sheet reading skills as I haven't had to read any in the last 10 years.

PLEASE DONT HESITATE ,FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT ME...MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP YOU FIGURE IT OUT... "Πάντα ήταν και θα ειναί χαρά μου να βοηθάω μαθητευόμενους στις κιθαροσπουδές και το στηρίζω εμπρακτα Όταν ξεκινάμε κάτι καινούργιο όπως η εκμάθηση κιθάρας ,τα πιο βασικά βήματα πρέπει να αναλύονται διεξοδικά και όχι γενικευμένα π.χ ''ανοικτες συγχορδίες" ... αυτό πολλές φορές δεν εξυπηρετεί.Ναι μέν φαντάζει ιδανικό να μπορούμε εξ' αρχής να εκτελούμε κάτι μέσα σε ολοκληρωμένο τραγούδι και αυτός είναι ο στόχος ωστόσο είναι ζωτικής σημασίας να αφομοιώνει ο μαθητευόμενος βασικές αρχές που εμπεριέχει η κιθάρα ... Το Μουσικό Εργαστήρι Κιθαροσπουδών & Τυμπανοσπουδών σας εύχεται καλή χρονιά γεμάτη υγεία και δημιουργία,σας περιμένω να γνωριστούμε να παίξουμε και να κατανοήσουμε τη φύση της μουσικής...

Guitar and bass guitar lessons and music theory from conservatory student
The most important thing about making music, in my opinion, is that you enjoy it. That's why I don't work with books, but I look at what you want to learn and how I can best teach you. Learning an instrument is different for everyone, so I adapt to the student.
