Lessons will be based on what YOU want to learn! Together, we will articulate these goals and create a curriculum to achieve them. Lessons and practicing should be fun, and my experience of teaching many many different students taught me that structured and goal oriented practice is necessary in order to play the music you want to learn.
Your part is to bring up this effort and practice regularly.
My part is to help you learn HOW to practice and master the instrument with proper technique.

About Ines T.

I have been passionately teaching guitar for more than 10 years and have been working as a Teaching Assistant in Classical Guitar at USC for the past three years. Before coming to the US in 2013, I taught individual and group guitar lessons at several music schools in Germany.

I have extensive experience working with students of all levels, from beginners to professional players. My youngest student so far was my 4 year old nephew, my oldest student was in his early 70's. Growing up in Germany, I have been playing the Classical Guitar for 25 years. Over the years I became a versatile musician playing not only Classical Guitar, but also electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and early instruments, like the lute and baroque guitar. I enjoy playing different styles of music from all time periods as they let me express in unique ways.

Ines has been a great teacher throughout college. Her emphasis on technique has greatly influenced how I approach guitar playing. Also, she taught me how important one's guitar tone is when playing a song the way the composer intended it to be played. It is very clear that I have improved as a guitar player while being her student and my guitar repertoire has expanded beyond just classical music.

Ines is an inspiring teacher for our nine-year old daughter. She is firm but flexible, patient, and a wonderful role model. Her breadth of performing and teaching experience allows her to choose repertory that is varied, fun, and challenging. Our daughter is always excited to have lessons with her.
