Nick G.

Nick - River Music School London

Tutor of Guitar and Music Theory

Nick's musical journey started in Greece. He started as a metal player and soon transitioned into fusion and jazz. He studied alongside Jim Politis for three years and then proceeded with doing a certificate with Berklee. His professional performing experience includes jazz, gypsy jazz and latin/funk ensembles.

 

In the lessons, Nick covers a comprehensive study of technique in both electric and acoustic guitar, as well as jazz theory/harmony and improvisation in funk, rock, blues, jazz/ gypsy jazz and fusion context. The goal is for the student to be able to confidently and effortlessly analyse harmonies, improvise and arrange for guitar in a variety of styles, making sure they can utilise both the polyphonic and monophonic side of the instrument.

"Being a guitar player for more than 10 years I have reached a point of stagnancy. I attempted to snap out of this situation by getting lessons with several teachers but nobody inspired me. Nick managed to motivate me and awake my desire for guitar again. As a teacher he has a lot of assets that make him special. He is organised, interactive and he has the value of listening. He teaches in a friendly student environment,his friendly attitude and his patience makes him very approachable." - Jim
