My name is Xabier Mera, a professional musician and guitar teacher with experience in educational environments with young people and adults.
Either if you're just looking to start for fun or improve your skills, I can offer commitment and good vibes.
Lessons will be at your own pace and according to your musical preferences.
If you are starting I can show you the fundamentals that will put you on the right track to learn your favorite songs or styles.
If you already play, I can give you some fresh ideas/techniques that will help you progress in your own style: Rock, Pop, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Funk, Bossa-Nova,Ö
Lessons can be at my place or, if you prefer, I will travel to you.
Learn in the right way how to play the songs you love or even your own compositions! Guitar Lessons professionally tailored to each studentís needs, with a friendly oriented approach.
I have loads of experience in artistic environments, either professional or educational projects,: singing and guitar lessons, choirs, bands, production and touring shows, running courses and festivals, events and live music.
I have a solid background in music theory, harmony, composition, etc. My main instrument is the guitar (jazz but also pop, rock, blues, etc.) but I'm also a singer and piano player.
If you think I am the guy who matches with your aims in music..... give me a shout!
Here are a few topics we can look into:
Chords (basic, 7th, triads,...)
Guitar Techniques (scales, arpeggios, finger-picking,...)
