    How To Play Guitar - For Serious Learners of All Levels

    I believe that anyone can play guitar.

    We don't all arrive through the same path, and rarely with the same goals in mind, but I do believe we can all do it if we are willing to put in the time.

    Are you a parent looking for a teacher for a youth's first instrument?
    Perhaps you have always wanted to try the guitar but had countless excuses not to?
    Maybe you are already a player but you wish to improve and feel stuck playing the same things?

    Among other things, I can teach you:

    *How to play chords and scales
    *Music theory and how to apply it on the guitar
    *How to transcribe a guitar part
    *How to rearrange a song for the guitar
    *Sound and effects
    *How to improvise
    *How to accompany a singer

    Regardless of where you're coming from, or where you want to go with it - I will be happy to help learn this wonderful instrument.

    Giovanni started playing the guitar when he was 6 years old and he never stopped thanks to his passion and his devotion to music.

    Piano lessons - music theory and harmony - for any level
    I teach for all levels, from children starting from zero to students who want to prepare certifications at the Conservatories, passing through amateurs or simply curious of any age. I firmly believe in the importance of knowing how to read music and this is exactly what I teach first, obviously adapting the method to the age of my students: knowing how to read music is knowing one more language, which, if learned well, won’t ever be forgotten (like riding a bicycle!) and it is an invaluable wealth. Starting from that point I teach the position of the hand, the arm and the whole body at the piano, the fundamentals of the piano technique (giving great importance to the percussive movement of the finger and the distribution of weight), the understanding of musical language, the expression of the personality through the keyboard, the search for touch and knowledge of piano repertoire.

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.

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.
