Private instruction
Do you want to bring your playing to the next level? You're welcome to study with me in Madrid (Spain) or online via Skype.
Since 2005 I have been offering personalized instruction for guitarists of all ages and levels, from complete beginners to professional musicians. During these years I developed an effective teaching method which helps solving all the common playing and musical problems and hence makes the playing more enjoyable.
I also assist in preparing performances/concerts, international exams (Trinity, ABRSM) or conservatory entrance (so far 100% success) and final exams. I teach in English, Spanish, Slovenian, German and Croatian and have taught students from all corners of the world (Europe, Asia, Australia, USA, Latin America).

My lessons are adapted to student's abilities and preferences. In general, they can include:

  • Technique (first comes the undestanding of each movement/technique, then we apply it to the specific exercises)
  • Interpretation of different music works from the repertoire (fingering, style, phrasing, articulation, etc)
  • Tone production
  • Efficient studying methods to spend your practice time wisely
  • Music analysis (harmony, structure, style) of played repertoire
  • Sight reading, music theory
  • Mental preparation for performances and exams
  • Body awareness exercises to reduce unnecessarily tensions
