About Me

My name is Yalçın Hasançebi. I am a classical guitar teacher, jazz musician (guitar and bass), and jazz composer, and educator. I have been teaching guitar in school (Collège du Léman) and privately along with developing my music career.
I have been teaching classical, bass, jazz and rock guitar for adults and children for over 20 years. Have experience of preparing children students for the ABRSM exam.
Combining my teaching career with my professional development as a jazz musician, I also try to motivate students to get a comprehensive knowledge not only of classical but also modern music development. I believe, that with my ability to create positive and joyful study environment, my language skills (I have full professional capacity of English and German, while Turkish is my mother tongue), my ability to set up friendly and open relations with students, their parents, my understanding of the cultural variance, and, most of all, my genuine motivation and interest towards music education, I can help you to get the results you want and have lots of fun while learning how to play guitar better.

Education

Master degree in Bahcesehir University, Jazz faculty. Have been developing my own playing skills through guitar classes with top-level Turkish and international guitar-players.

Experience / Qualifications

20 year of teaching experience in music school and university level (CK Music and Pianist Music School, BAU), teaching children (from age 5-6) and adults. Guitar teacher at Collège du Léman for individual and ensemble classes.

A very thoughtful and experienced teacher
Our experience with yalcin is extremely positive. he is a professional musician and he is able to teach and talk to young children. Since the first classes my kid could already put together some notes and it gave him confidence and will to play! He can also choose the right songs to keep him interested and amused! Yalcin is punctual, kind, accommodating.
excellent teacher
Follow my individually designed and creative program of ukulele teaching for adults and kids. You will be able to pick the tunes you like and soon enjoy playing them with confidence for your friends and family. Based on the experience the method works for everyone even without any music education or prep. Let me know if I could walk you through it!
Learning jazz guitar and improvisation isn’t always easy, but I can help you. I have been successfully playing jazz in solo and band projects for over 20 years, have vast recording experience and academic degree in jazz production and have been teaching jazz guitar for over a decade. I am designing my classes to individually address my students objectives, but also to make learning jazz guitar easy and fun. Whether you are just beginning to learn jazz guitar or you are already an experienced player having some difficulties on the way, my lessons will get you playing jazz guitar in no time! From the basics to learning how to transcribe licks from your favorite guitar players as a great way to expand your jazz vocabulary and learn the jazz language, learning guitar scales that you’ll need to know to get you started improvising, such as the major scale, the pentatonic and blues scales, the seven guitar modes, chord scales, the diminished scale, the altered scale, and many more, and of course learning and playing some jazz standards to bring all the technical material you have studied, such as chords, scales, arpeggios, and voice leading, together and actually start playing music. Write me or call to discuss the area you would like to work on specifically or follow my individually designed for you program.
We can start from the very beginning to help you on the bass journey - from tuning, left& right hand techniques, learning first grooves and major scales. But I also want us to continue on the more crafted curriculum when I can teach you some of the most important, core topics around bass like how EQ works and how to dial in a good sound, how to warm up correctly, proper hand technique, creating your own bass lines, an introduction to theory, scales and chord tones, and so much more!I I have been playing bass with major rock and pop bands in Turkey for over 10 years, but also was teaching bass to my students for about the same time and developed a unique program addressing all the ups and downs on the learning curve and focusing on the individual objectives and playing problems of my students. Will be very much happy to share my love and skills in bass with 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.

Apprendre à jouer à la guitare acoustique/électrique
Guitar lessons are always useful for all levels of guitar playing. the course content will depend on the level of the student and is entirely open to any preferences in songs or techniques the student wishes to learn. My course is designed in such a way that it focuses on the student's creativity with the guitar and works towards fine tuning what will eventually become the student's original song or composition. I encourage my students to tap into their creativity, since in my experience, I have found that this is where the pleasure and beauty of music tends to surface, when there are the least amount of boundaries possible. All styles of music are welcome!

Guitar, bass, piano and voice lessons at home
I have been teaching piano, guitar, bass and singing for more than 10 years to students of all ages, I like to work on a register oriented on the tastes of the student to ensure his motivation, while giving him the best bases and technical elements necessary for its progression. I work on the practice of the instrument above all, with moments devoted to the development of the ear as well as a little musical theory. I teach the basics of music theory, and use tablatures (guitar reference system) for guitar and bass lessons. I spend a lot of time in the studio and unfortunately take few students, but I still have a few places left! I also teach in english!

Manuel
Private lessons of Flamenco Guitar in Geneva and in Valais.
We work the techniques, rhythmic styles and harmony typical of flamenco. Once the pupil has acquired a certain mastery of the instrument, he can learn to accompany song and dance in order to complete his learning; let's say that the accompaniment of song and dance is what will allow the student to live a real experience of flamenco and thus feed on the ingredients necessary to learn and understand all the richness and complexity of this art. The accompaniment of the song: At first, we will study rhythmic formulas on precise chords, then in a second time, we will play these formulas with the singer (recorded on audio tracks). In order to make learning more lively, the student will be able to accompany the teacher who will sing certain styles and will be able to participate in monthly workshops to accompany song and dance with a singer, a dancer and other students. The student can also film during the lesson to be able to work at home more efficiently. Finally, distance learning courses are possible, via Whatsapp or Skype.
