ISTANBUL GUITAR LESSONS IN ENGLISH - CLASSIC, ACOUSTIC OR ELECRTRIC
Hi Everyone, This is Ricco from Istanbul, Turkey. I am a professional guitar instructor who also is playing in various stages with different bands currently. I have a solid 10 years of guitar experience in all genres, from pop to rock & blues and so on. Besides playing electric guitar professionally with different bands, I am also giving professional hands-on guitar lessons for the guitar enthusiasts. There is one major rule for my guitar lessons which is ALL LESSONS ARE IN ENGLISH !!! This is why most of my students are either childrens of expats working in Istanbul or students studying in colleges and private schools whose official language is English. If you are interested in learning how to play guitar (either classic, acoustic or electric), please feel free to get in touch with me. After the first lesson If we both agree that we can move further, we shake hands and plan your progress together. Lessons can be done either in your own flat or mine, but the price per lesson may vary accordingly. Students may also use my own guitars which can be seen in the photos, my amp and pedals. Looking forward to hearing from you !!! Ricco
