Gitaarpedalen en effecten

Een grote ontwikkeling om het gitaargeluid te beinvloeden zijn de pedalen en effecten zoals Reverb, Delay, Distortion en veel andere geluidseffecten. Je gaat experimenteren met pedalen zowel in hardware als software vorm. Benieuwd?  Boek een proefles!

Muziek software en Ableton Live

De technologie verbetert iedere dag en integreert in het creatieve proces van live uitvoeringen op het podium of het maken van muziek thuis. Mijn lessen bieden inzicht in de creatieve mogelijkheden van Ableton Live. Je leert hoe je dit gebruikt als software voor opnames of als een krachtig effect als loop en sample unit. De lessen met Ableton kunnen gecombineerd of onafhankelijk van de gitaarlessen worden gevolgd.

Nice Teacher!

Nice teacher that helps when you are stuck and also tries to understand why. The lessons give motivation to keep playing and the pacing of the lessons is very nice.

A Refreshing Teacher!

I think my guitar teacher Michalis is such a refreshing teacher. One of the best I have ever met. With his approach he is able to immediately adapt to my playing level. He is able to fill in the gaps and he sees what is needed to support me in my development. He happens to be sharp, clear and well expressed in his explanation. With his great personality, musicality and knowledge he knows how to make and always keeps the lessons fun continuously pushing me to the next level. Thank you for everything so far!

Very professional!

When it comes to a supportive teacher, Michalis meets all the standards. He is calm, patient and adaptive to the students needs. He is very professional, which we can see from the quick progress that our son Alex is making. Because of the current situation with the pandemics we had to continue the lessons online and Michalis is sending us extra video guides which have proven to be very effective for the learning process! We just bought a new guitar for our son and he is super excited to continue with his guitar lessons.

I recommend Michalis!

During the last couple years that I've been having guitar lessons with Michalis, from being just a hobby guitarist I am now aspiring to become a professional musician and I really believe Michalis has all the tools and methods to help me achieve my goals. We are now starting my preparation to enter a conservatory and I am very happy to have such a supportive and knowledgeable teacher, I recommend Michalis to everyone!

Extremely Helpful Teacher!

I am a new learner and found Michalis to be a patient and extremely helpful guitar teacher. Cheerful and likeable personality and looking forward to extending my lessons to get better at playing the guitar.

Great Experience!

I already had some guitar experience when I started the course and was looking to improve my music knowledge and technique. The lessons are well structured and very personalized to my own needs. It's been a great experience so far, and I am looking forward to the rest of my classes!

Easy Going Teacher!

I'm learning for the first time in my life an instrument with Michalis. He is really patient and easy going, takes the time to explain how to play and how to act during playing, he also has a lot of tips and tricks that you only get when doing real lessons. He is really professional, passionate and knows his stuff. That really helps a lot and it's exactly what I was looking for!

I highly recommend!

I highly recommend Michalis' guitar lessons for all skill levels. Whether you just want to play your favorite songs or want to astound everybody with your technique, Michalis can adapt to your learning capacity and musical preferences. I barely knew how to play when I started about a year ago and I've made great progress under his guidance! - Mario

Passionate Music Teacher!

As a beginner it is really nice to have a teacher who takes time and explain really well. Michalis is very flexible with my difficult work schedule and we always find a good time during the week to have the lesson. He is teaching music with passion and the transition between a classic music lesson and real songs is nice. I recommend Michalis to everyone!     Sofiane

Really fun!

I signed up for lessons with Michalis because I needed some structure and direction in starting with an electric guitar (after a few not-so-successful weeks of trying to self-teach myself through youtube). We first had a trial lesson where we discussed what my goals were and what is the best way to approach the lessons. Over the 10 lessons, we explored different strumming patterns, music genres (punk rock, blues, funk etc.), practiced improving the rhythm and learned how to play a few songs - the solos and chords that seemed "crazy" at first but turned out to be doable thanks to Michalis breaking them down, giving feedback, and being patient with my countless attempts. Along the way, he explained some music theory and answered all the questions in a very approachable way. To sum up, the course was really fun and useful and I now feel much more confident in playing the instrument.

Joy to learning guitar!

Not only are Michalis's classes educative and attentive, he also brings joy to learning guitar!

Great teacher!

After not playing guitar for 10 years I picked up the guitar again. After getting frustrated about youtube videos(too easy or too hard) I started my lessons with Michalis. He really takes the time for you and always comes with new ideas on how to improve your playing. He listens to you and can quickly adapt to answer all your questions in an understandable way. Michalis always keeps in mind that a guitar lesson needs to be fun. In just 4 months of lessons I have learned more than in all the years before. If you are looking for a great guitar teacher Michalis is the one!

Great Guitar Teacher!

I'm really happy that we found such a great teacher like Michalis! My son really likes the guitar lessons and he is always looking forward to the next one :) Michalis is really patient which is important with kids and the classes are always fun and productive.  All in all we can only recommend Michalis to everyone!

Te gekke gitaarleraar!

Having played only a little bit of guitar in the past, with the help of Michalis I can now take it to a whole new level. Absolutely awesome teacher, very down to earth, I really enjoy the lessons and his valuable insights and tips. Highly recommend!
