Guitar, Mandolin, Music Theory lessons by enthusiastic tutor and performer

Enthusiastic guitar tutor and performer.
I started playing classical guitar at the age of 6, and my formal musical education began at the age of 9 when I started attending a music school in Croatia. After 6 years of primary school, I continued studying classical guitar at a secondary music school in Varazdin, Croatia. During that period I received training in classical harmony, Counterpoint (polyphony), Solfeggio, Music history and gained plenty of experience in orchestral playing and choral singing. I decided to continue my musical education in Manchester where I was studying for an undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music and currently I am studying at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague. As a performing guitarist, I have successfully participated and won prizes in a number of international competitions in the UK, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Hercegovina. Although my studies are primarily related to classical music, I am comfortable playing and performing music in a range of other styles and genres. I am also experienced with mandolin and Croatian folk instrument called tamburitza.

Reviews (7)

very passionate and helpful teacher. I am excited to continue with my guitar lessons
This was my 7 year old son’s very first lesson. Antonio adjusted the class to his level, and my son left wanting more!
Antonio is an excellent teacher and experienced with guitar teaching. I feel quite relaxing during the course.
Highly skilled, friendly and dedicated. Only two lessons and I already improved so much. Very good teacher.
I began to learn the basics of classical through COVID and Antonio has been so very helpful and supportive in refining my technique and removing many of the bad habits I have picked up. The lessons are highly enjoyable and I recommend him to any aspiring or seasoned guitar player.

Violin Lessons for children, adults, or anyone who wants to learn the violin!
I started taking violin lessons at the age of 7. After years of training, I am currently continuing my violin studies at Utrecht Conservatory. I have also attended music theory classes for 6 years because it is very useful to have some knowledge of it when playing any instrument. If you would like, I would be more than happy to share some knowledge of music theory along with the violin lessons. Lessons are private and not in groups.

Gonçalo
Guitar and music theory lessons by a qualified and experienced teacher
I specialize in teaching about Music and how to play the Guitar. In class, I always make an effort to understand what are the goals and interests of all students, as well as their skills. This way we can address the issues at hand more effectively and make sure the student never loses his/her interest and focus in music and his/her instrument. I believe that an honest and friendly relationship between teacher and student is essential for this exchange of ideas to happen more clearly and fluently, so I do my best to make everyone feel comfortable enough to share their thoughts freely. I offer good and personalized classes. This means that there will be special care with your interest in music and guitar, all basic skills will be worked upon and strengthened, all specific requests and ideas will be addressed, both improvisation and interpretation can be developed, and exploring potential, achieving goals and having fun are main priorities. Come and enjoy learning more about Music and Guitar!

If you want to discover the instrument or perfect it, if you need theory support or practice help, I will adapt my methods to your needs to offer you quality musical time!

Music Theory for all ages - reading musical notes, music history, solfege, composition
Learning to read musical notes and get to know music in a fun way. This lesson is determined by the need and age group of the student - from musical games and music appreciation and beginner note reading and music-making, to dealing with musical material and musical analysis. I am a composer of music (classical, acoustic and electronic) who deal with music in many shapes and forms. I hold a Master degree in Composition from the Royal Conservatory The Hague.

Galit
learn Irish music on your Irish flute or your tin whistle
In this lessons we will work on Irish tunes alongside how to play your whistle, good posture and breathing technique. Irish music gives a great joy, it's rhythmical and flowing :) we will work on both playing by ear, but also reading the sheet music so you can always easily learn and play new tunes.

Javier
Enjoy the music! Bassoon, Basic Piano lessons and Music Theory.
Highly dedicated and passionate teacher. Age does not matter when it comes to learning, just enjoying it. Lessons for beginners to more advanced students. Always trying to keep a creative environment where the students can express themselves in all aspects. I believe that it is necessary to be constant. The ideal would be one hour or hour and a half a week, but that depends on the student availability. I would provide a personal adaptation. I like playing games, singing and coming up to most creative solutions for learning fast inside of a save space for questions and imagination of the student. It is very important to motivate the students regarding to their music tastes. I consider myself an involved and motivated musician. I am constantly trying to learn new styles and enjoy so much doing it. At the moment I am studying my second bachelor degree in music, specifically in Early Music. I am very flexible with schedules for lessons so coming to a common point should not be very difficult.

Janire
Horn, music theory and piano classes for beginners.
Highly dedicated and passionate teacher. Age doesn't matter when it comes to learning, just enjoying it. Lessons for beginners to more advanced students. I like to play, sing and find the most creative solutions to learn quickly within a space reserved for the student's questions and imagination. As a musician I consider myself a very motivated person to always try new things. I also like to play from old music to contemporary music, so any style is welcome to try. During my Bachelor's training in Classical Horn I have trained in different educational skills techniques as well as in teaching ensembles and basic conducting. In addition to horn classes, I can also teach music theory and basic piano skills. I am very flexible with lesson times, so reaching a common point shouldn't be too difficult.

Dennis
Campfire guitarist (with or without music theory and singing)
You want to be the person who can just pick-up a guitar and play a song everyone can sing along to? Do you want to be able to play (and sing) a song after hearing it once or twice? Impress your friends or your lover by playing their favorite songs. I teach you: - How to hold and play the guitar - How to play your favorite songs - The skills to learn guitar on your own - How to warm up (playing guitar or singing) - Breathing and singing exercises to improve your singing I might not be able to turn you into a pro. But I'll teach you the first steps to getting there yourself! A bit about me: I study for music therapist, so I know how to engage in converstation. If you have special needs, I know how to respect those and teach you how to deal with them (musically) My goal is to do this outside of my school hours, so I'm pretty flexible when it comes to weekends and evenings as wel! I'm a spiritual person; that means I'm also open for your religion (if you have one) ;) I'm 24 years old with an obvious passion for music. Hit me up if you have any questions. If you need help finding your first guitar I can advise you on that. Let's talk about your budget and options and we will settle on an agreement for the price of my advise.

Marie-Lou
Classical guitar lessons for all ages and all levels
Does music appeal to you that way? Can the sounds of the guitar completely enchant you? Would you like to learn to interpret those sounds yourself? Together with my students I look for what they would like to be able to do on the guitar. We discover the instrument and its music in its full glory: the warm sounds, the percussive attack and countless colorful chords. I myself have been playing guitar for 13 years and have just completed (September 2022) my master classical guitar at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven (Belgium). I am currently further specializing at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. I am extremely passionate about music and love to pass that passion on. No prior knowledge of music is required. Lessons can be held at my home, while traveling, or online!

Malena
Guitar, Piano and Singing Lessons for beginners: theory, practice, improvisation and composition
Music has always been my biggest passion and I really enjoy sharing it with other people. My main music genres are pop, rnb, ballades, a bit of jazz, and soul. I can read musical notes, but I mainly play by ear (which can be learned too!). I am into music theory and how it helps to understand what one hears and plays. When it comes to singing, I know some basic techniques and can help with pitch, harmonizing, control, and feeling comfortable/confident when singing. I can teach some basics about improvisation and composition
