« Gerrit is an incredible musician and a talented teacher. It is clear that he dedicates many hours to his students, tailoring his lessons and teaching approach to their particular needs. I approached Gerrit with the desire to learn basic guitar to accompany my signing after I watched him perform jazz. He was friendly, easy to approach, and was not deterred by the fact that I was an absolute beginner and he was clearly an advanced guitar player. My preference in genre was also not jazz. Gerrit arrived to the first lesson fully prepared for what I had asked. He had a song carefully picked out for me based on my musical preference. In no time I was strumming along. Despite my initial intention to learn a few easy songs, Gerrit's deep knowledge of the instrument is transmitted through in every lesson. By the end of my time getting taught with him, not only could I play songs way beyond the level that I had initially set out to learn, but I had also accumulated a love and understanding for the instrument. I also had the privilege of watching a few of his other students perform at multiple events. Gerrit is always greeted with warmth and fondness and the performances are always of high calibre and versatile in genre. I highly recommend Gerrit as a music teacher. »

Guitar lessons in your home. All levels. Specialised or general lessons. Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop, Funk, Country, Folk.

Methodology

Learning any instrument is always a personal and unique journey.

My job is to help you on your way.

I listen to exactly what every student wants or needs from their music education, and I try my best to give them just that.

Lessons can be genre specific or general. I also offer specialised lessons that focus specifically on certain aspects like:

-Technique
-Sight Reading
-Ear training
-Improvisation
-Theory (always combined with either visual explanations on the instrument, or through ear training)

Background

I have been playing guitar professionally for more than 10 years.

I have been teaching students of all ages over that same time.

I have taught in schools as well as privately.

I have a degree in music as well as extensive performing experience.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £20/h
