Guitar for beginner and intermediate students. Learn and easily master your instrument.

The guitar is a star and fascinating of musical instruments . Such a beautiful gadget that anyone would want to have a go at it, even if it's only to feel the touch of it.

The first time I saw the guitar that's how I felt but also I was at a loss what the various parts that form the instrument were, what exactly are they for and what do they do.

Many guitar fans are out there, some dreaming about playing the guitar but who seem at sea too as to where to start and how to go about it. For many the shape and the decorations on the guitar body is a great puzzle that needs answers.

In this introductory class my aim is to get you to derive more fun from, and deeper interest in the guitar as your favourite musical instrument.

In the end you will be fully enabled to give a good account of your guitar body parts both to yourself and to other curious outsiders so to speak. It should turn your learning to play the guitar proper more of a fun and enjoyable experience as any guitar student who come under my tutelage should testify.

About Me

Hey there!

Vick here, Musician/guitarist and most importantly your Guitar Mentor, from Africa based in Manchester UK.

My musical background is rooted in a variety of African traditional rhythms, as well as, in gospel music, Afro-pop music, and Afro-beat.

Also, I am massively influenced by world and western music styles such as western pop and rock music, reggae music, 12 bar blues, and acoustic folk music.

It's quite a rich palette of musical experience and influence, which I suppose places me in a good place so that, I will be able to craft a unique sounding sound, making a distillate out of such a rich palate.

As your Guitar Tutor my primary motivation is to enable you, my students, to teach by guiding, so that you should progressively acquire the needed guitar player skill and techniques, eventually leading you to the kind of playing and mastery that should surely enable you as a motivated student, to turn out as flexible as can adapt your guitar playing and music to fit into any genre you may choose to play with. Basics of Music Theory also helps a good deal!

In my guitar class one of my cornerstone performance and achievement goal is to, get my students to be able to manage the pressure that comes with this guitar learning adventure; get you to relax, have some fun, enjoy learning as they experience the thrill on the way to scoring their goal. And soon you should be enjoying your hard and won achievement if you kept on course and did not chicken- out.

Education

In the course of my life, I may say my education has been both in the formal and informal settings. I have learn a lot in between the classroom walls as well as in the open Uni.

Experience / Qualifications

3 yrs of guitar private teaching, a present rhythm and lead guitarist in a Manchester based Afro- reggae fussion band member, and 3 years of Private Guitar teaching experience. DBS qualified
The guitar is a fascinating and versatile musical instrument to play. I know how exciting and challenging it could be, to pick up a musical instrument like the guitar, and set yourself on a mystery journey of an advenrure, as you learn how to play with it. My aim, as a private guitar tutor is, to pass on to you a vital skill of which myself over the years have been on the selfsame journey as I keep learning and teaching. In reasonable time span, you should be playing your favourite tunes on the guitar, having great fun. In due time, l will also be helping you with the basic concepts of the Music Theory underpinning your guitar playing - a universal musical language that enables you interact seamlessly, and efficiently communicate with other musicians.

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

If you are a beginner and don't have all the equipment, don't worry, I own several guitars, two guitar amplifiers and many effect pedals, so even if you don't have all the equipment yourself we can have a fully productive lesson at my home. I have almost 20 years of experience in playing the guitar and great knowledge of the specifics of guitar playing in each individual genre that I am teaching. Whatever you wish to play, you will be able to master during lessons with me.

Personal Music Lessons(guitar, piano) for all ages
Dear prospective student, I offer lessons on classical and acoustic guitar, and on piano! The most important thing for me in my lessons is to give the possibility to my students to find theirselves through music. We will talk about what you like and we will adapt songs and styles to your preferences. It is important to enjoy what you’re learning! Then the lesson becomes more fun! In the lessons we can practice different skills based on what interests you. For example songwriting and improvisation. In this way you can emotionally connect with the material you play and find emotional growth! We can also practice your music theory skills so you know basic rules of music and understand a piece better! Or simply and nicely, play music together and improve your skills on your chosen instrument! If you are interested, contact me and we can set together goals based on your level and achieve great results!

How to become a guitar master! Stop being an eternal beginner!
I know what it means to feel like an eternal beginner. You learn new songs but you struggle each time there’s a new chord or a different strumming pattern. You would like to improve faster and you are not really sure if you are learning right. Although you are playing, you don’t get the results that you want. This was the exact same thing that happened to me many years ago. I was playing but I didn’t really have a clear understanding of what I was doing. It took me a while to understand that I had to invest in a high-quality teacher, not only someone who could play but also someone who had a background in teaching. My guitar lessons are designed so that you acquire a solid music foundation from the beginning! I see too many new musicians simply copying from youtube tutorials! I am afraid- that's not enough! Whether you are a beginner or advance player, you deserve to progress in your musical journey at the right place and in the right way. Get in touch if you want to:   ·       Acquire a solid music foundation; ·       Learn how to play iconic rock/alt-rock/blues/pop songs; ·       Learn new groovy strumming patterns; ·       Learn how to improvise; ·       Experiment with new techniques; ·       Understand and apply music theory concepts.

Classical Guitar, Mandolin, Music theory lessons by enthusiastic tutor and performer
Enthusiastic guitar tutor and performer. I started playing classical guitar at the age of 6, and my formal musical education begun at the age of 9 when I started attending a music school in Croatia. After 6 years of primary school I continued studying classical guitar at secondary music school in Varazdin, Croatia. During that period I received training in classical harmony, Counterpoint (polyphony), Solfeggio, Music history and gained plenty experience at orchestral playing and choral singing. I decided to continue my musical education in Manchester where I was studying undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music and currently I am studying at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague. As a performing guitarist, I have successfully participated and won prizes in a number of international competitions in the UK, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Hercegovina. Although my studies are primarily related to classical music, I am comfortable playing and performing music in a range of other styles and genres. I am also experienced with mandolin and Croatian folk instrument called tamburitza.

Eamonn
Guitar and singing lessons in Brussels with a professional singer-songwriter/producer (En/Fr)
Trained at the Music Academy International, I propose private lessons of Guitar, Singing, and/or Audio Production centered on amplified music (funk, soul, jazz, rock, blues, etc.) and adapted to the requests of each student. My classes are open to all, children and adults, beginners or advanced. I attach great importance to the understanding of the technical tools implemented in the interpretation of the pieces, a typical lesson is therefore divided between technical work with clear explanations and actual practice on songs to play or sing. If the student is interested, I also teach the more theoretical aspects of music, such as harmony (scales, chords, modes, improvisation), music theory, rhythm, ear training, and deciphering. I also offer coaching sessions. These are non-regular sessions to target work on specific aspects of the requested repertoire. Each lesson is accompanied by work material (paper or audio) to practice at home. For guitar lessons, an instrument can be made available, for singing lessons, I accompany the student on the piano or the guitar (it is also possible to use backing tracks when the key and tempo are right ) and for audio production, I can provide the software required to start on any operating system (Win, Mac, and Linux) (I don't work with pirated software). Classes are given in my studio in Etterbeek, 5-minute walk from La Chasse. I also teach group lessons for singing, do not hesitate to contact me for more information. Flexible schedule (daytime or evening).

Pedro
Guitar lessons for students of all levels in the Lake Zurich area
The program will be tailored according to the student goals. (leisure, professional development) focusing on; basic knowledge of the guitar, basic chords and more advanced chords, scales and modes, theory and practice of improvisation, study of a repertoire, right hand technique (fingers or pick), music theory and rhythm. An understanding of what are the goals and interests of student, as well as their skills is the most effective way to pass on knowledge.

Giorgos
I'm a professional classical guitarist, student at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels, and i give guitar, theory and solfege lessons
Hello everyone I'm Giorgos and i teach classical guitar! I the past, the guitar was considered a very royal instrument and is still considered one of the most widely used instruments to accompany with. The repertoire and possibilities are huge, and i like to structure my lessons based on what you like to listen to and to play. I've been teaching for a long time and i'm very comfortable with it, and i enjoy seeing people get passionate about the instrument. It's a great hobby and a great calling to follow! Depending on your knowledge level, you will learn how to play chords, basic pieces, technique exercises and etudes to forward your technique, right hand technique and rasgueados (special spanish flamenco "fan" strumming), and also you'll learn how to correctly read a score, we'll talk about scales and music theory, so as to not only learn to play the pieces, but also hear music in a different way with deeper understanding. I teach at my place, at yours, or via Skype and Zoom! I'll be happy to meet you ^^

Alex
Guitar lessons and music theory lessons in Rotterdam
Alex has a bachelor's degree from the Rotterdam Codarts conservatory. Besides that he also obtained a diploma in pedagogy at the Amsterdam conservatory. This combination makes it possible for Alex to convey his knowledge of music to his students in a pleasant way. Alex has enough experience, he has more than 10 years of experience in teaching music in music in Rotterdam and its surroundings. He has gained this experience by giving private lessons and classes at various music schools. Alex excels in providing acoustic guitar lessons and music theory lessons. If you are looking for the best guitar lessons in the Rotterdam area, then Alex is the right address. Read more on his website to get an impression of the lessons and the teacher. Alex's priorities through the lessons are development, motivation and interest. It's very important that there is a constructive evolution in the pupil's playing, a constant will to move forward, as well as pieces/songs that inspire him or her. It's important that the pupils learn through an efficient and personal method, but also through their own interest and repertoire (wishlist). In a teaching lesson the focus is put on : - guitar posture, technique and sound - timing and rhythmic feel - strumming and grooves - interpretation - theory and knowledge of music - improvisation - repertoire (on student's wishlist) There are three dimensions to a student's programme : scores, tutorials and coaching. Having a Master's degree in Jazz composition (Rotterdam), Alex designs the scores himself, making arrangements of pieces / songs in an accessible way, along with his method and exercises for guitar technique. The scores are written with a hybrid notation (music notation and tab notation), and with all the information necessary about the right and left hand. After having agreed on the pieces / songs to be worked on, the relevant score is shared and given at the lesson. The teacher goes through it, while he also plays it live to the pupil for even more reach. He then explains what needs to be clarified in order to prepare any homework. Finally, Alex creates a video tutorial about the piece or song that needs to be learned for the next lesson. This gives extra support when practising at home, in order to avoid any doubt and keep motivation up. A report is then created to keep track of what has been done as well as what needs to be worked on, in order to unlock technical requirements and complete a specific repertoire in a constructive and efficient way. Alex teaches in Rotterdam at home or at the pupil's own location ; lessons are in Dutch, English or French, for all ages and levels. The teacher mainly gives live lessons, where he works with his pupils on specific material (technique and repertoire). If for any reason a live lesson can't take place, it is of course possible to follow an online lesson. Lessons last 30 minutes or 45 minutes, weekly or biweekly.
