What to expect from the lesson?
You can expect the lessons to be fun, productive and tailored to your needs from a qualified teacher.
We will start learning to read the pentagram notes, doing fingers exercises technique and practice pieces from the first lesson.
Books, Resources form the student area (on my website) and a personal Google Drive Folder will organise our lessons as best as possible.
The most important element is for you to enjoy the lessons and make the most of the time you have with me.
Whether you’re a complete beginner, an advanced player or anywhere in between;
whether it is your child’s first encounter with music or for your own leisure pursuits,
I am able to cater for all levels and ages.
The first trial lesson is free and it’s an opportunity for us to talk about your guitar lesson
goals and aims, look over the course materials and get you started.
Plan your learning
I will help you to plan your study and practice in most efficient way possible.
If you already know how to play guitar but you want to improve your skills, we can decide a program that suits your needs.
From the baroque to contemporary music, any kind of exams and auditions, we can tackle any repertoire that you are interested in.
Frequently asked questions:
What guitar styles do you teach?
I teach mainly classical guitar and modern music finger style.
I’m a beginner, how can I know if guitar suites for me?
If you are a beginner, my lessons will help you develop a good technique and knowledge about the guitar. This will give you the possibility to find out what you are more interested in and develop a good base knowledge even if you later decide to change teacher.
I’m an adult that has a busy schedule, do you think I can learn guitar?
Yes, absolutely! In terms of lessons, I will discuss which days and times are more convenient for you and accommodate where I can. I would encourage you to also practice in between the lessons and I will help you to plan your practice between the lesson. Regularly practice is the key word to achieve your goal!
My child wants to learn how to play the guitar, how can I know if this is the right course?
I have been teaching young students for more than 10 years. During this time, I developed specific techniques, games, materials and songs that meet the needs of my youngest students. The students learn how to play guitar, read music, play famous songs, learn rhythms and do a lot of composing and improvisation exercises.
I don’t read music; can I learn how to play the guitar anyway?
Yes. I believe learning how to read music is a great tool to learn how to play an instrument and helps you with the exercises and pieces. So, if you are interested, we can begin the lessons with learning how to read music from the basics and you will be able to improve quickly until you will be able to read music by yourself.
What extra benefits do you offer to your students?
A lot of benefits are on offer for my students. As a student you will get discounts for my books, free materials, advice for your music journey (which guitar to buy, other books, exams etc). You can also join to the students’ area on my website where you can find more exercises, videos, audio records, suggested guitar performance videos and more.
What age and levels of students do you enjoy teaching?
I teach students from early age (4-5) to all adults of all ages.
How much practice time should I do each day?
This is really personal and can change for every student. It depends on your age, if you are learning the guitar as a hobby or if you are experienced and want to play guitar as a profession. In general, if you’re learning guitar as a hobby, I would recommend 30 minutes per session. For those who want to be guitar professionals or take guitar exams, then I would recommend more time and effort.
How much is the fee for the lessons?
The price depends on how long do you want the lesson to be and whether it's online or face to face. Please check prices details here: Services.
Can I pay for my lessons monthly?
Yes, you can. Once you decided to sign up for lessons, we can discuss about payments policy. You can choose to pay after each lesson, within 48 hours, or a monthly payment.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you cannot make a lesson, you will need to let me know 24 hours before the lesson is due to start. You can decide to cancel or reschedule the lesson. Any cancellations done less than 24 hours will be charged at full price.
