Notes:

Dear students!
I'm happy to offer a 30 minutes consultation lesson for half price, so I can see where you're at with your playing, and you can see what is I do. I can also recommend what you have to do over the next few weeks or months, and how that will affect you and how will you improve.

Online tuition experience:
I’ve been teaching a few personal students through Skype since 2 years now. I found that Skype is a very effective way of communication and a very convenient solution for giving lessons. It is been used by many professionals who tour around the world with their music for example and can`t have face to face lessons. What I`ve experienced so far with online tuition is that it`s a great methond and it works really well. I successfully helped one of my online/skype student to achieve great results in Grades. I would strongly recommend to everyone who finds it difficult to travel to the teacher`s place or if the teacher does.

Areas I teach:
I teach around Surrey and London areas as well!
Guildford and London tuition both available!
Teaching in London, Weybridge, Godalming, Guildford, Woking, Epsom, Petersfield, Liphook, Haslemer, Worplesdon.

Teaching Experience:
During the time I have spent as a part time music teacher, I have tried to learn as much as possible about all aspects of the educational and teaching process. I have consistantly sought the advice of more experienced colleagues in order to improve my teaching and have learnt how to organise a classroom, use resources and manage time effectively. I have produced my own lesson plans and adapted and improved them based on the feedback given to me by senior members of staff. I recognize the importance of varying teaching styles and content and have used a variety of VAK approaches and activities in my lessons, for example getting students to sing the melody I teach in order to help them memorize it. I believe I am empathetic to all the students I teach. I think it is important to recognize the students one teaches as individuals and respond to their individual needs-and I have done this during the time I have spent teaching. A student of mine was very nervious about a performance that he had to give in front of a large audience and concerned that he wouldn’t be able to memorize the piece due to its length. I was able to both reassure him and breakdown the piece into more manigable chunks that could be memorized more easily and with my help he was able to perform the piece successfully. During the past year I have learnt a lot about behaviour management strategies: moderating my tone and language to achieve the desired results; positioning myself effectively and using rewards and sanctions appropriately. Colleagues have commented that I have been very quick to adopt and act on their advice. I have been studying music (Academic level) and playing guitar on stage for the last 11 years and have been enriching and improving the lives of both young and adult people in the United Kingdom through music for the last 4 years. I was working as a guitar tutor for Minerva Academy, Oakleaf (teaching people with mental health issues), and I'm currently working for Hunter's Harmony, Beaufort music schools and privately. I also experienced nursery sessions and taught children for Ukulele, as well as successfully helped many of my personal students to achieve great results in grades. With a high level of stylistic awareness I'm open to performing any genre of music: from blues/jazz to rock/hard/prog-rock/rock'n'roll/funk/soul, r'n'b/reggae - with thorough knowledge of music theory and jazz improvisation approach - along with elements of Latin, or even electronic music. Acoustic, Electric are all able to be taught. I also have understanding in Sight reading, Ear Training, Songwriting, Lyrics writing, Harmony and Improvisation. All age and skill levels are welcome. Personal development and philosophical discussions with a cup of tea included!

Personal biography:
My name is Johnny (Csongor) Debreczy. I have been dealing with music since my age of fourteen, and by fifteen I decided to take up guitar/music as my professional career. I began my musical studies at Hang-szín-tér Music College, in Hungary. Here, I got introduced to other genres of music such as Jazz, Blues Folk, Classical, and by having the passion to become as good as I can be, I earned ”The Best musician of the year” award in 2011 college year. Soon, I started to write my own materials and formed my first band, Célpont. The band constantly toured around Hungary which gave me good professional live experience. After finishing the college at Hangszíntér, I obtained an N/SVQ Level 3 equivalent qualified jazz musician certificate, in which I received a distinction in both Music theory and professional practice. I continued to play at gigs with a function band called Smoking blues band, performed Jazz with several formations, and joined a Rock band called, Leaner. I spent hours and hours in studios, recording/producing my own materials as well as partipicating in other projects. I also began to teach in private lessons. In 2013, I moved to England to study in Guildford, at the Academy Of Contemporary Music (ACM). Here I studied with Carl Orr, Giorgio Serci, Jon Bishop, Nat Martin, Nicholas Meier, and many guitar professionals who were also mentoring and helping me in a professional level. In 2014 I formed my band Missmaze, an Alternative rock trio in which me being the main songwriter and singer. The band is currently working on a single to record and release in December, 2017.
