Learn to play as a beginner or develop your playing with lessons that are fun and engaging in my dedicated music room with recording facilities.

With Michiel P
Hi, my name is Michiel Paulus. I do here two different classes. Guitar classes and NLP. NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming, below more about this. First the guitar part. I studied classic guitar in The Netherlands. Beside classic guitar I also teach other styles like pop, bossa nova (Brazil), chords and plucking. My teacher-ship started 37 years ago after I graduated Conservatory in the Netherlands. I composed a lot of pieces for the guitar special meant for students of all levels. To give the beginning student the joy of really playing some piece in a short time, most compositions are in notes as well well as in TABS. Some pieces are also arranged in chord-blocks or diagrams. The focus of my guitar lessons is the joy of playing guitar. While I was studying at the Conservatory I played in a lot of bands. First I started to teach guitar in my studio at home. Since a few years I also teach via Skype and Facetime (Apple). At this moment I already have students in The Netherlands, Sweden, Norwegian and Iraque. When I was offered to teach here at HowNow I was very glad they provide the connection via their website since Skype sometimes loose quality. After I graduated at the Conservatory I kept on studying. In the nineties I learned about NLP, neuro linguistic programming. NLP is the study of objective experience. In fact all we experience is objective, everything we see, hear, feel and think is colored or filtered by our believes, history, education etc. NLP learns how these filters work and how we can adjust these filters. NLP is used in many field like business, sport, education, coaching, training. The most important issue of NLP is modelling. That's how it started. the main question is what is the difference that makes the difference between a good salesman and an excellent salesman. The first classes will be about communication and how to improve your communication. Why are some salesman much more successful than others? Why are some teachers and trainers much better motivators than others? Even when they have the same school and university. NLP is about making conscious of patterns, everyone has more or less in his behavior and communication. Making aware and adjustable. I did all NLP courses starting with NLP practitioner, Master Practitioner, Post Master Practitioner, NLP Trainers Training, Ericksonian Hypnosis.

Guitar tuition tailored to YOU.

With Philip J
A guitarist since 1994, and a tutor from 2003, I studied at the Guitar Institute of Technology in London under acoustic maestro ERIC ROCHE. This proved an invaluable experience, not only for learning to play, but also how to teach. In 2003, I became a Peripatetic Tutor for ESSEX MUSIC SERVICES (which included vetting by the Criminal Records Bureau). In the first term alone, I was visiting ten schools across Essex, seeing some eighty pupils weekly. This was in addition to my private practice, serving students across Essex and Suffolk. I've also worked in the private school sector, serving as Peripatetic Guitar Tutor at ST MARGARET'S PREPARATORY SCHOOL, teaching electric, bass, and classical guitar, as well as successfully running the School Rock Band. My most recent school position was the Peripatetic Guitar and Bass Tutor at SAMUEL WARD ACADEMY. But it's not all theory, as I've has been striding the live stage for many years. Indeed, my first live band performance was to an audience of over two thousand, with the gig being webcast around the world. In original bands, such as Last Minute, and Rocket, I not only played, but sang & wrote as well. Along with covers bands work, I've also collaborated with and depped for bands on an ad hoc basis, lending me exposure to different styles, and the experience of playing to audiences of all sizes in locations across the country. All of this means I'm no stranger to the recording studio, something I've supplemented with continuing studies of recording & production, both with time spent at the London Centre for Contemporary Music, and privately. Speaking of recording, throughout 2016 I've been providing guitar tracks via remote session work for clients from Alaska to Vietnam, and all points in between!
