About Bart

And I had not much of a voice. I didn't play that great guitar either - Leonard Cohen


I take lessons with Bart for many months. He is listening to my requests going in all directions and, at the same time, slowly brings me toward a better way to improve my skills. He also pays a lot of attention to the positioning of fingers and hands and arms and body, to ease relaxing and then play better.

Zo word ik telkens beter!

Bart speelt goed in op mijn ontwikkelwensen en daagt me tegelijkertijd ook technisch uit. Zo word ik telkens beter, in plaats van een beetje op hetzelfde niveau te blijven hangen.

Een fantastische gitaarleraar

Bart van Osch is een fantastische gitaarleraar. Halverwege 2017 heb ik nog nooit een noot of akkoord gespeeld, maar inmiddels heb ik enorm veel geleerd. Bart past de lessen aan op basis van je eigen kennis en tempo. Mijn lessen zijn bijvoorbeeld een mix van het spelen van akkoorden en noten, maar ook de theorie achter de gitaar en muziek. Erg fijn om te weten waarom een akkoord is zoals het is.

Great Teacher!

Two years ago, when Bart accepted me as a guitar student, he had not idea about how messy I can be. I keep rehearsing something close but slightly different than what we studied together. It is not a problem he just adapt and we can build on what I have done since the last lesson. Bart is a great guitar teacher keeping my motivation to the top by being positive, stating what direction will help me improving. The atmosphere during the lessons is relax despite him keeping focussed on my two hands, my fingers and the notes I play. I can only recommend him (providing that he keeps some slots for me).


Bart geeft echt goede gitaarlessen en is een fijne docent! Binnen een paar lessen merk ik dat ik al beter kan spelen. Ik keek in eerste instantie op tegen het leren van theorie, maar door zijn aanpak en de leuke opdrachten die hij als huiswerk meegeeft ben ik al een eind op weg. Ik lees nu noten, begrijp pentatonische toonladders en heb een betere houding waardoor ik langer kan spelen. Dat kon ik daarvoor allemaal niet! Hij heeft goed geluisterd naar wat ik wil bereiken als gitarist en daar zijn aanpak op aangepast. Ik kijk uit naar elke les en ga elke les met een gemotiveerd gevoel de deur uit!

Echt een aanradertje :-)

Ik denk dat ik nu beter kan spelen dan wat ik met zelfstudie zou hebben geleerd, dus echt een aanradertje :-)
