Friendly and Experienced Professional Musician Offering Beginner to Intermediate Guitar Lessons Online

I'm a firm believer in tailoring the lessons to the needs and interests of the student to ensure they make progress in the right direction whilst staying interested and challenged. This means that I'm interested in finding out how you want lessons to go, whether that be learning your favourite songs, learning new chords, studying technical skills, understanding scales, or something completely different.

My lessons are appropriate for beginner to intermediate students and I also teach songwriting and music theory lessons for those interested in learning.

Outside of classes, I'm open to discuss songs, technique, career goals, co-writing, learning resources or whatever else will help you develop as a musician.

I'm a professional songwriter, guitarist, and producer who has been playing since the age of six and have experience in an array of styles but predominantly focus on folk, indie-rock, pop, country, and R&B.

I'm an experienced tutor who has taught scores of students with a range of abilities, interests, ages, and backgrounds.

About Me

I'm a friendly professional songwriter with seven years of writing experience and countless co-writes in the tank. As a writer, I'm primarily concerned by the lyric and craft side of writing but, as often as not, also compose musical elements.

My specialties are in folk, Americana, pop/rock, and country but am also experienced in R&B, soul, rap, and indie-rock.

Education

MA Songwriting - The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance - Distinction
BA English and American Studies - Loughborough University - 2:1
A Level Business Studies, Economics, English Literature, Modern History.
AS Level Citizenship and Sociology

Experience / Qualifications

I've recently finished a Songwriting Masters' at ICMP in London, for which I received a Distinction, and am currently co-writing with a diverse range of artists for a number of professional projects.

In my Major Repertoire Project at the end of the course, I studied the roles played by the co-writer in writing sessions and this gave me a great insight into the collaborative process and equipped me to be a better-rounded collaborator.

In 2017 I completed my BA (Hons) in English and American Studies which gave me a solid foundation for lyric writing and my time as an editor on the student magazine gave me a sharp eye for song editing.
My lessons are heavily tailored to the needs and interests of my students, whether that be learning to write/edit/improve lyrics and melodies, a crash course in music theory, putting chord progressions together, finishing songs and developing productive routines, or adding some accountability and objective feedback to your process. Working as a professional songwriter and studying MA Songwriting has equipped me with a wealth of tools to sharpen the technical craft of a song and to harness the creative process to bring the best out of other songwriters. In lessons, I draw from this to help new writers develop their own unique voices. I'm a big believer in constantly writing and sharing so I like to set weekly briefs to encourage you to write in new ways and then give detailed and constructive feedback that will help you grow. I know from experience that sharing new songs can be unnerving so I take a lot of care helping people overcome this hurdle. Outside of classes, I'm open to discuss songs, technique, career goals, co-writing, learning resources, and other topics that will help you develop as a songwriter. I'm a professional songwriter with over nine years writing experience and countless co-writes in the tank. I regularly write with artists in the UK, around Europe, and in the US and have recently started taking my first production clients. As a writer, I'm primarily concerned by the lyric, form and structure side of writing but, with guitar as my main instrument, also usually write the majority of the musical elements. My specialities are in alt-pop, indie-rock, acoustic pop, and folk but also have experience in RnB and country.

Electric guitar: technique, theory, improvisation and expression
Being an electric guitarist requires a lot of technical skills, fine motor skills, knowledge of the instrument, but above all expressiveness. To be a great guitarist and perform on stage as Hendrix did, you will not only need a lot of practice, but also to be very clear about where you want to go and have the specific tools at hand to achieve this goal. Hello, my name is Sebastián, I have been a guitarist for 20 years, I have a master's degree in education and 10 years of experience teaching music. I have designed this course to cover various techniques (alternate picking, legato, tapping, vibrato, bending, arpeggio, sweep picking, chord inversion, etc.), theory (scales, chords, harmony), knowledge of the fretboard, improvisation, and expression.

Private guitar lessons for every level: from basic chords to out of the box improvisation
Hey! My name is Richard and I give private lessons to all levels. For guitar, it is important that you can improve yourself in a pleasant environment in a fun way where your interests are central. Do you want to delve deeper into a certain style? Do you want to create your own sound on your guitar using amps, and pedals, ...? I can help you with all that! Knowledge of solfège or music theory is not required, we can always discuss this in class if you wish, but that is certainly not mandatory ;) I have been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and for several years now I have been playing in professional bands with which I have been able to play on sugar rock, for example. The lessons would take place at my home in Mol or via webcam. If necessary, we can always agree on something else. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions and I will answer as soon as possible. See you soon! Richard PS: my specified hours are a guideline, if this does not suit you, you can certainly send us a message and we will try to arrange something :)

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.

Patric
Individual online lessons for guitar and ukulele
Since 2011 I have been teaching guitar, ukulele and music theory full-time as private lessons, online and since 2021 also entire classes at the adult education center in Mainz. I've been playing guitar and ukulele for over 25 years and during this time I've gained a lot of experience on stage and in the studio. My offer is aimed at young people and adults. No matter whether you are a beginner, advanced or returning to the sport. I don't believe in just showing my students what to play and practice. I want you later to be able to teach yourself songs with the help of your ears and to expand your knowledge and skills. We will learn songs that you like and work through them together by listening to individual passages, paying attention to what is happening in the piece and then together we will find a way to transfer it all to the instrument. I will then show you suitable exercises and give you instructions on how to practice difficult passages of the song precisely, neatly and orderly. Despite latency in the transmission in online lessons, it is possible that we can play together. So you can practice at home as if I was sitting right next to you.
