About Me

*NEW TO APPRENTUS, SEE PHOTOS FOR PREVIOUS REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS*

I started playing piano at the age of 5, guitar at the age of 9 and drums at the age of 11. I have been teaching since I was 15. Last year I decided to make it my primary focus and am looking to develop my client base further.

All ages, abilities and styles are catered for and I am happy to offer advice and guidance on anything from guitar string choice to complex music theory. I also have recording and production facility if you require additional learning aids, such as backing tracks.

As I always say, the best and most satisfying thing for accomplished musicians to be able to do is to “play it forward” to those in the earlier stages of their own musical journey.

Matt
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!

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am completing my Masters in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for almost 10 years now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time.

GUITAR and ZANGLES: For beginners and advanced, young and old. Everyone receives a personal lesson plan and objectives. You don't have to know any nuts.

I expect commitment and then it can go quickly. Several students of mine are now enjoying some success in the music bizz.
