Learn Classical/Spanish or Pop/Rock Guitar in Amsterdam

As a professional performer and educator, I have been developing my music teaching business for over 8 years, through which I teach a wide range of styles, levels, and ages. Lessons are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each student, whether the focus is on classical guitar performance, chords, pop, jazz/blues, or Spanish-style fingerpicking. Music theory, composition, improvisation, sight-reading, and preparation for high school exams or University auditions are all options that can be incorporated into lessons.

I have plenty of experience with young children and teenagers as well as adults, from complete beginners to advanced players, and I am particularly encouraging of adult beginners or those who may be out of practice due to the time-consuming responsibilities of adulthood. My teaching philosophy is holistic in that I strive to help my students become well-rounded musicians with a range of listening, reading, improvisation, and analytical skills, while of course carefully choosing repertoire that will cater to the student’s taste as well as their abilities.

In the case of small children, I am happy to help the student develop a musical ear from a young age by teaching aurally and visually instead of exposing them to sheet music straight away. With adult or adolescent beginners I use a combination of visual teaching and easy reading tasks, unless the student wishes to focus more on pop music, in which case, reading music is not necessary.

Who Am I?

I graduated with Honours from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in classical guitar performance and spent 2 subsequent years in Berlin with an artist visa. As a professional performer and composer, altogether I have performed and/or had my work featured in festivals, venues, concert halls, and public events throughout Australia, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Morocco, the U.K., Japan, South Korea, Mexico and the U.S. I’m currently working on my Masters at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam while teaching part-time.
