I have been playing guitar for 35 years and it is my first instrument. I am open to all genres of music.

Beginners: learn the correct basic techniques and fundamental knowledge of the instrument. You can be creative and compose your own songs & music right from the very first lesson !

Improvers: polish your unique skills and style, correct bad habits, expand your repertoire and fill in gaps in your knowledge which are holding you back. Progress as fast as you want !

Experienced players: get positive encouragement, feedback, inspiration and a new perspective. I listen to where you’re at and offer insights and support.
