Learning to play guitar by playing the songs YOU love: what more could you ask for? Designed especially for electric guitarists, the guitar classes offer a range of material: chords, solo’s and melody as well as rhythm and various basic techniques. The classes consist of a maximum of six students and are formed based on age and level.
Popschool Den Haag offers guitar lessons for all levels and ages! Besides the basic techniques we’ll work on the music genres and songs that you enjoy. Together we’ll determine our goals, such as: learning to play in a band, accompanying singers on guitar or writing your own songs! You can also work towards auditioning for one of the many pop conservatories. Let us know what your goals are and we’ll get you started with the right teacher for the job.
Via the contact form you may sign up for this course at any time during the year; the fee will be reduced based on the number of months left in the course.
