Bass and Guitar Lessons Amsterdam
Looking for a motivating and fun guitar or bass guitar teacher in Zaandam or Amsterdam? My name is Jose and I am a guitar and bass player from Santiago, Chile. As a Latin-American musician I grew up immersed in a wide range of styles and rhythms, listening to music coming from the US and Europe, as well as all the local music from the continent. In this way, I developed myself through playing diverse styles such as jazz, rock, pop, funk, hip-hop, samba and salsa.
Want to develop your guitar or bass guitar playing and learn more about specific music styles such as jazz, rock, pop, funk, hip-hop, samba and salsa?
Beginner to Advanced
Want to learn the guitar/ bass from scratch? Never played before but in love with music and curious to try? Or are you a more advanced guitar/ bass player seeking ways to improvise more freely, master your instrument and improve your playing? I gladly help you bringing your technique and musicality to the next level.
What can you expect?
The goals for our lessons will be set according to your own interests, striving to develop your playing by learning a repertoire, and using, for example: basic scales, chords, tabs, right-hand and left-hand technique, slapping, different types of picking techniques, reading music.
My studio is located in Zaamdam, not far from Station Zaandam. Depending on travel time, schedule and distance, guitar lessons at your home in Amsterdam can be discussed.
Either working on the fundamentals of technique or music theory, or developing more advanced playing in different styles and contexts, I always strive to bring insight and understanding over music practice.I believe this is a key factor in being able to connect with your creativity in a practical way.
Passionate to transmit
Being versatile has given me the opportunity to play with people from different cultures and, regardless of the styles I have played, there is always this magic and thrill that brings me tremendous joy when playing my instrument, this is something I love about music and that I feel passionate to transmit when teaching music.
Guitar Pedals and Effects
The electric guitar is an extremely versatile instrument and having this versatility allowed it to become one of the most influential instruments of the 20th and 21st century. A big contributor to this is the ability to modify the guitar sound by using effects such as reverb, delay, distortion and a shocking amount of many more sound effects. In our lesson together we start exploring on how to setup your pallet of sounds by trying out and experimenting with many different pedals both in hardware and software form. Curious?
