I consider myself to be a perfectionist and I always try my best to provide an outstanding guitar lesson experience to my students. By keeping my sessions engaging, I strive to extrapolate certain skills and hidden talents and I always prepare my classes based on the musical tastes and set goals of my students. While I do follow a specific curriculum, I adapt it in different ways to suit each individual’s aptitude and potential. I believe that the ability to interpret and express music in their own style is a critical aspect of learning music. To this end, I expose my students to different music styles in order for them to cultivate and develop a unique style and technique.
For those interested in becoming performers, I can teach everything related to playing in front of big or small crowds. As a touring guitarist, I will share my experiences and teach all about live performances, guitar amplifier set up, pedals and pedal-board and inspire students to play with great confidence. Having recorded with several artists, I am also familiar with the latest recording interfaces.
I’m always realistic about the path and the time needed to achieve specific learning goals and do my best to deliver a professional experience while making the process enjoyable. I’m patient, flexible, and great at building a good rapport with all my students. My rates are very reasonable and I offer discounts on block bookings.
I am an experienced and very friendly music instructor that offers guitar classes to potential students of all ages and levels. Whether you are just starting to strum a guitar or you want to pass your exams, I aim to deliver an outstanding learning experience that meets your goals.
I’ve always been fiercely passionate about music and started playing classical guitar since I was 10 and gave my first lessons when I was a teenager. Fueled by my love for music, I began teaching in a music school when I was 20 while I was also studying for my Master’s in Music. I was later hired by one of the biggest music franchises in Toronto, Canada, to teach guitar and music theory. Since then, I have been teaching, touring, and recording albums and also organizing corporate functions and private events like weddings all over North America for the past 12 years.
I know Giampiero since over a decade. He is definitely a great tutor: patient, knowledgeable and helpful. He first makes sure to understand your goal and he will then guide you to reach what you want to achieve with ad hoc classes. He is very flexible and he adapts his teaching to your own pace and level. Highly recommended!
I started my guitar lessons with Giampiero when I was approximately 14 in Italy and he has always been an easygoing teacher, able to switch from a classic and scholastic method of teaching to a more relaxed one based on my requests. When he moved to Canada we stayed in touch and he has always been available to give me advices and tips via Skype and Facebook. After he told me that he was moving in the Uk where I live as well I decided to start lessons with him again to keep improving my skills.
Throughout my early years of guitar lessons as young teenager, I had slowly been learning the basic fundamentals of the music world at the academy I had been attending. Its was there that I had met Giampiero, and although never actually having him as my personal teacher, I was still privileged enough to share an occasional lesson with him and his student at the time. After my time at the academy, I had neglected music for a considerable amount of time when coincidentally I had luckily run into Giampiero once again, this time at my place of work. This was the moment that changed my musical life forever. From there on out, Giampiero had helped me develop into the musician I am today. He always had a great understanding of your strengths, but most importantly your weaknesses. His lessons consisted of ways to tackle your weak points, emphasizing the importance of technique and finesse. Understanding music theory is the tip of the iceberg, but understanding how to implement it in exciting ways that advance your progress based off your own way of learning. I thank Giampiero for everything that he has done for me, and hope that anyone questioning their next move in music will give him the same opportunity the grow as a musician.
Has a wonderful ability to relate to people. He has excellent skill, enthusiasm and professionalism, making me want to learn. I highly recommend him!!!
I had the privilege of studying with Giampiero De Angelis for about 2 years. In that time I was able to develop immensely and take my abilities to the next level. Giampiero’s knowledge and understanding of music and guitar playing are insightful and vast. His approach to tone, touch, technique and performance helped me realize the many possibilities of the guitar and music. The lessons were always a great time as Giampiero is very personable and friendly while still promoting a focused and informative learning environment. In the time since I have studied under Giampiero I have been able to peruse my music at the post secondary level. I am now a student at Berklee college of music and hope to graduate with a degree in performance and cultivate my professional career.
I am very grateful and fortunate that I had the chance to meet and study with Giampiero, though his mentorship and teaching I have been able to develop and continue to peruse my musical goals.
