Private instruction
online and in Madrid (Chamberí)
Since 2005 I have been giving personalized instruction for adult guitarists of all levels, from complete beginners to professional musicians and guitar teachers. 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, RCM) or conservatory entrance (so far 100% success) and final exams. I teach in English, Spanish, Slovenian and German and have taught students from all corners of the world (
Argentina, Australia, Brasil, China, Germany, France, Finnland, Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Peru, UK, The Netherlands, Thailand, USA etc.).

I've been teaching online since 2015. Lessons can be taken on a regular basis (weekly or biweekly) or as single lessons. I use a High Speed Internet (300mb/s), Full HD WebCam and a professional microphone to offer the best possible quality. During the lesson I usually make annotations such as fingerings in music score via my Ipad which I then share live or/and after the lesson.
The students can choose between 60, 45 or 30min sessions. Several times a year an online students' concert is organized where everyone is welcome to play.
Both online and in-person lessons can now be booked directly via Calendly-see below. After choosing the desired time slot you will be taken to a short questionnaire to choose the duration of the lesson, indicate the pieces or topics you want to work on and provide any other relevant information. After the reservation you will be sent an email with further details such as payment options and Zoom or Skype meeting link. For other booking options or more information feel free to send me an email: info(at)sanjaplohl.com. I usually offer several free slots at different times every week.

Prices for lessons are:
60min 46€
45min 40€
30min 30€

Classical Guitar Corner Academy
In 2019 I joined the teaching staff of CGCA, the most comprehensive online school for learning classical guitar. Members of the academy can participate in weekly online coaching sessions with me and other four teachers.

Special thanks to Classical Guitar Blog for including me on their international list of guitar teachers.
