I offer guitar- and music theory lessons in Turku, Finland or via Skype. Topics covered in the lessons include improvisation, composition and arranging, sightreading, solo guitar, Alexander technique and maintaining the stylistic integrity of songs. There are no limitations on the style of music - my area of expertise is in jazz, blues and R’n’B/soul. The main goal of my lessons is to equip students with the tools that will allow them to eventually teach themselves. Lessons can be taught in English, Finnish or Swedish.
I have studied composition and arranging at Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA. Over the years, my teachers have included Mick Goodrick, Hal Crook and George Garzone. In addition to private music lessons and gigging, I teach at various schools in Southern Finland.
Players of all ages and levels, both acoustic and electric, are welcome. The lessons are held at my studio in Turku.
