Bitte mein Beschreibung auf Englisch Lesen. Ich vesuche Deutsch lernen, aber kann ich noch nicht auf Deutsch lehren. Vielen Dank!
I am offering guitar lessons for beginner, intermediate and advanced guitarists. I teach students songs they love in styles including jazz, rock, blues, folk, indie, pop. I ensure that students are using proper technique and learning music theory in order to provide a rounded learning experience.
In lessons I aim to get students playing something they know and love as soon as possible. Whether you are a complete beginner or advanced I can help you expand your knowledge and enjoyment of playing guitar whilst maintaining good technique, all in a relaxed and friendly teaching environment.
I make sure to get to know exactly what each student wants to achieve from their lessons and plan learning goals and materials to help make your guitar playing aspirations a reality.
I generally like to spend the first lesson learning about the students goals in their lessons and their musical influences. Then we can have a look at learning a song and I like to provide some exercises and warm-ups to help technique. From there we can put together learning goals and explore deeper aspects of music such as music theory and composition or improvisation. It really depends on what the student wants to focus on and what you enjoy playing most. I feel comfortable adjusting my teaching style to different types of learners and taking the time to get to know how you learn best and have the most fun playing music!

ABOUT THE TEACHER
I am an experienced and enthusiastic guitar tutor from England, living in Berlin. I have been playing and teaching guitar for nearly ten years. I play mostly jazz, I also play and teach rock, pop, funk, folk and indie music.
In lessons I aim to get students playing something they know as soon as possible in order to get excited about playing. I balance this with paying attention to proper technique and the theory behind what we are playing to get an understanding of how music works.
I have a real excitement for all types of music, whether it’s learning your first chords on guitar or working on improvisation or music theory. We'll go at the right pace for you and achieve your goals together.
I have experience with all ages and abilities of students, having taught in primary and secondary schools as well as private tuition. From complete beginners to preparing students for auditions to study music at university.
I love teaching and am very excited to help you play the music you love!
Bachelors of Music in Jazz Guitar, Leeds College of Music, 2013
I have previously taught guitar, bass, ukulele and band sessions to a large variety of students, from 6 years old to adults, mostly in the North of England. My previous teaching experience includes working for a large secondary school in Bradford where I planned lessons for and taught 20-30 students each day. I also worked for an agency, providing lessons for students aged between 6-18. Whilst working there I successfully put students through instrumental exams and helped to prepare one student for his university audition. I have also taught many private students of varying abilities.
