Information About Henri - St. Neots teacher - (3 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Henri:
I am 30 year old musician originally from Finland, I moved to Cambridge over 5 years ago to study. I am an avid cyclist, jogger and health enthusiast.
I split my time between composing film music, commercial jingles and composing and playing with a folk band based here in Cambridge. (Mandolin being my choice of instrument in this group) I also do the occasional session work with various artists and composers.
For the past 2 years I have been teaching adults, young adults and children with different skill sets and style preferences. I am very patient and punctual when it comes to teaching, and I do take it to heart how my students are progressing.
The way I learned to play guitar was through enjoyment of just playing and learning things that interested me. I would teach the student on their own terms in order to have 100% enjoyment of the instrument and music. Though, music theory is very important, everybody is different and everybody learns in different levels and speeds.
For the past 16 years I have been involved in many different groups from Jazz to Punk and so I have gathered a very deep insight on what each style needs theoretically and physically. I can give lessons on not only on styles like, Blues, Rock, Jazz, Folk, Latin music and pop but also on reading music, understanding chords and their functions (Functional harmony) and modes. Improvisation is a very big part of unlocking the true potential of a budding musician, this also can be taught up to a certain point.
