I am a second-year jazz & pop guitar student at Leeds College of Music offering guitar lessons in any genre except for classical guitar, as well as singing and music theory lessons.
Should you be interested in taking lessons I offer a free trial lesson. Please be prepared to tell me then who you are, what music you enjoy listening to and/or playing the most, what you've done musically in your past and what it is, that you want to learn in a certain time frame. If you've enjoyed your first lesson and want to continue taking lessons, I will sort out an unique teaching plan that best suits your musical aims for the future. Lesson options are either half an hour or hourly sessions max. 4 times a month.
Should you ever need to cancel a lesson, please let me know at least 4 hours in advance, otherwise I will need to charge you half of the lesson's price for lessons at mine and the full price for lessons at yours.
Please acknowledge that I am not able to travel to yours if you live more than 10 miles away.
Hagen is a passionate musician and teacher and goes above and beyond what is expected. A very nice and honest guy!
I have been giving music lessons since almost 6 years now for several students aged 6 to 18 in the UK and Germany. To me it is very important, that every student is happy with the outcome of my lessons and learns what he or she needs to learn, but also wants to learn. I sacrifice a lot of time to properly prepare my lessons specifically for every student and I am always open for demanded adjustments.
I am very looking forward to hearing from you!
An ambitious and passionate musician and highly organized and reliable student with over-average experience in guitar playing, songwriting, music theory and music performing. A kind and funny person, whose dream is to make a living out of going on stage and delighting other people with his music.
