Working on songs
Many times working on songs, learning a piece of music is a great way to master various techniques and aspects of music. If you have a passion to learn a song but can’t quite make it sound like it really should sound I’d love to help. With my students we have worked on songs fom many artists: Iron Maiden, Metallica, Guns n’ Roses, Lenny Gravitz, Stevie Wonder… well even some Mr. Fastfiinger songs!

Something else?
- Feel free to ask and suggest.


One lesson is 50 – 60 minutes long and we proceed in pace that suits you. We can set a single lesson or set to meet every week if needed.
