Guitar lessons - focussed and inspiring tuition with expert teacher

I believe everyone should, at some point in their life, be exposed to a degree of music education. As a guitar player, I have spent 15 years playing and over 6 years teaching, and sharing this belief with audiences and pupils alike.

All of my guitar lessons are tailored entirely to the individual student.

Graded and non-graded pathways are both considered, and I work with each pupil to decide which course is right for them.

We can consider on any aspect of guitar and music making you like:

Chords / harmony
Solos / improvising
Strumming / rhythm
Technique / L/R Hand
Aural
Theory
Equipment / maintenance

I have a 100% success rate from my exam entrants, and have taken pupils to Grade 8 and beyond.

I am fully DBS checked, and trained in child safeguarding

Extra information

Your own guitar is strongly encouraged for independent practice, but one can be provided for the initial few lessons.

GUITAR AND / OR ZANGLES - Antwerp and surroundings - private
GUITAR and ZANGLES: For beginners and advanced, young and old. Everyone receives a personal lesson plan and objectives. You don't have to know theory. The lessons take place in a pleasant demo room. At your own pace I will get to know you the guitar and its possibilities so that you can quickly play your favorite songs. If you come to sing, I will lift you to unprecedented heights through my knowledge and years of experience. I like to coach motivated people who can make time to develop musically. I expect commitment and then it can go quickly. Several students of mine are now enjoying some success in the music bizz (not that this should be everyone's goal). Partly because of their perseverance but also because of the training they received. I am a music coach and guide you in a pleasant, successful way through an educational period. If you want more details or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Musical greetings, Danny

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade 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. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

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!
