Looking for a guitar teacher in Utrecht for your child or picking up guitar lessons after a break? Guitar teacher Michael Ibsen: I believe that each student should begin with a firm grounding in understanding the essential elements of guitar technique, as well as the building blocks of understanding guitar music (rhythm, melody and accompaniment, and reading tablature/notation).
Classical – Pop – Rock - Folk - Metal
Usually after learning the basics you can go several directions, towards classical guitar, fingerstyle/folk guitar, or pop/rock. The music will be based on what songs or styles you want to learn, with suggestions from the teacher. This should all be integrated as you will learn whatever music you want to play.

Your own Path
Most importantly each student will have a different path and style of communication and learning, and this is at the forefront of lesson planning throughout their studies.
My top priority in teaching is to help you experience the joy of learning an instrument, and to learn to love your own process of musical development as you gain the tools to express yourselves on the guitar. Of course, the end goal is to have fun while learning!
Beginners to Advanced
Generally for beginners, work will begin through methods and exercises to learn the basics, starting with simple melodies and chords. I’ll teach you to read notation as well as guitar tablature, to give you a well-rounded start. As a student progresses, or for those who can already play guitar, lesson materials will be adjusted from student to student, and can cover a variety of styles and techniques.
