Music teacher offering guitar lessons online from beginners level to advanced.

Methodology

My name is John Gerritsen, I am a professional music teacher with more than 30 years of experience. I teach many styles of music (namely fingerstyles and leadguitar, flamenco, classical, blues, acoustic, electric, jazz and bass guitar). I teach pupils on an individual basis, from beginner's to advanced levels. I first find out what the need of the pupil is, and then teach them techniques, songs, chords and music theory needed for their styles. I teach formal lessons with exams (should the student wish for that). My lessons are practical, and I spend time ensuring that the student understands and knows how to apply all the principles and technique involved.

Background

I am a guitar teacher, with more than 30 years of experience in the field of teaching music. In 1977, I completed my BA degree with Unisa and in 1984 I earned my Diploma in modern music. I have been running my own music business, called Music School South Africa, since 1986. I teach music ranging from: piano, bass guitar, banjo, ukelele and singing. However, I specialize in teaching guitar. I am a specialist in teaching guitar styles from fingerstyles and lead guitar to flamenco, classical, blues, jazz, electric, acoustic to bass guitar. From beginners level to advanced.

John's CV

After completing matric in 1972, I completed my BA degree at Unisa in 1977. After working various jobs, I discovered that I wanted to follow a career doing what I am passionate about: Music! So,I decided to study music and in 1984, I earned my Diploma in modern music. In July 1986, I became the manager of a business called 'The Modern Music School". Since then, I have started my own business, called ' The Music School of South Africa', which I own and run. Today, I not only have more than 30 years of experience in the field of music, but also teach many instruments ranging from the guitar, piano, singing, banjo, ukelele and bass guitar. I am a specialist in teaching the guitar, and specialize in fingerstyles and leadguitar, flamenco, classical, blues, jazz, acoustic,electric and bass guitar. I can teach anyone, from a student on a beginners level to a student on an a advanced level.
