Private music instruction with an experienced teacher and performer.
Lessons are tailored specifically to the needs and wishes of the students. Method books can be used by those who seek more structure; others may wish for more 'open form' lessons in which we explore ideas and techniques together. Students are welcome to focus on technique, note reading, ear training, improvisation, fingerpicking, soloing, songwriting... Also, the classical, jazz, folk, rock, blues, pop, and even avantgarde traditions can all be employed. I teach beginners to advanced students, in English or in German.
I have studied guitar, piano and trombone, beginning at age ten and going on to study Jazz and Classical Guitar at the University of North Texas (one of the best music departments in the United States), and later studying under jazz legend Connie Crothers in New York City. I have been teaching privately for over fifteen years, having had a large student base in Manhattan's prestigious West Village neighborhood before relocating to Hannover in 2015.
Lessons are offered at the rate of 25€ / 45 min, or 30€ / 60 min.
Lessons take place weekly at my studio in Nordstadt. I maintain a typical 24 hour cancellation policy, with allowance for holidays, vacations, and serious illness. There is no long-term contract, and both student and teacher reserve the right to discontinue lessons at any time.
