Jan has been playing the guitar for over 24 years and studied formally at the world renowned Musicians Institute in Hollywood back in 2001.
By applying a mix of the teaching techniques used at his former school and his own approach to teaching Jan is able to tailor lessons to his students needs and goals, presenting exercises to develop techniques in the most efficient way possible.
A healthy combination of learning songs and techniques fuels his students inspiration to want to practice and progress on the guitar, both with their knowledge of chords and voicings, soloing and scales, and their application.
A favorite thing to do of Jan's students in their lessons is jamming along to him on drums to develop their timing and strumming skills, and off course because it is so fun.
A part of lessons is also the development of musicianship and theory, always in the context of either a cover song or an original song ( that Jan helps their students write and record ), to prepare ...
Learning an instrument in a music recording studio environment has many advantages and is a lot more fun, creative and rewarding. From your teacher jumping on different instruments for you to develop your independence and timing as a player and recording prepared projects you've been working on, to playing at a higher volume to get to know your gear's real sound, the rocking' memories you'll walk away with will fuel your inspiration to practice and improve fast. My focus is to help you achieve your goals on your instrument. With each individual student, I offer exercises, songs and techniques to practice that will help you to immediately begin seeing positive results. I believe that anyone can play an instrument and take their next step in music. It makes a big difference if you
