Skype Guitar Lessons

Have one-on-one lessons using Skype on either African guitar or as a beginner using my Montessori Guitar Method. I am also happy to teach Montessori teachers or music teachers how to use my Montessori method for teaching their own pupils.

The lessons are a midpoint between oral learning tradition and written learning. No prior experience or preparation necessary. It’s all very relaxed and you will probably even learn something. Or at least be motivated to teach yourself. Contact me on derek@derekgripper.com to schedule a lesson.

I am mostly in Cape Town time zone – you can use this calculator to work out what times are good for you and let me know please in South African time. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
