I have been a professional musician and a guitar tutor for over ten years. I have had the opportunity to explore music in its full spectrum. Music is a form of art. Regular studying and consistent practise are important. However, there are other fundamental aspects that musicians and music teachers cannot underestimate, such as understanding the nature of a specific type of music, the connotations of its genres and styles, the poetry behind it, the historical and social backgrounds in which it has been created and developed and, of course, the crucial contributions of particular artists. As a guitar tutor I always keep these concepts in mind and I try my best to communicate them to my students as well as the passion and enthusiasm for playing music.

From Beginner to Advanced

Styles and Genres
The following are the musical genres I love to play and to teach about: Blues, Jazz, Rock & Roll, Soul, Funk and Reggae. I like to think of them as Roots music. It is true to say that the guitar techniques developed within those genres have been hugely influential for the progress of Pop music and that they are still used in current music.
Therefore I believe that learning about them is crucial for any sort of musical style and genre that one can be passionate about.
