Learning the guitar is a beautiful, thrilling and long journey. It actually never ends. What makes a huge difference though, is a helping hand, constant guidance and a well-organized plan to this journey, at least up to the point where you can create your own musical path.
I have been exploring many different systems and approaches for the past 15 years, and have well-organized and perfected my tuition material and approaches for more than a decade.
Given that a person is actually willing to sacrifice some daily time in order to gain musical knowledge, technical abilities and generally achieve his musical, guitar oriented goals, I will deliver the best tuition to help out in the shortest time period possible.
The last part doesn’t in any case mean that you ‘ll learn guitar in a “magic” way and avoid the workload and amount of practice hours, but what it does mean is that I will help you get to your goals from the fastest way, avoiding obstacles and increasing the quality of your practice routines.
