Aditya Gandhi | Concert Guitarist

Lessons

 
I started learning guitar with an enthusiasm which soon turned to disappointment due to certain reasons mainly unqualified teachers, I lost my interest day by day. Till I went to Aditya’s guitar concert for the first time. He was playing and I was regretting. I decided to share my story with him to find a solution.

After joining his Guitar classes, all my passion suddenly rebounded. I highly recommend him if you want to start you guitar journey. He is very well-disciplined, very motivating and professional.

To potential students,

I have been teaching privately for over 6 years now. In the past I have taught within institutes, such as Melody Makers Arts Academy in Dubai and other schools in India. But they have many restrictions, such as an inadaptive syllabus and standardied testing, which doesn’t give the students individual attention and path to creativity.

But more importantly I have been learning for over 13 years,  in USA, Scotland and India. I have learnt from teachers with varying backgrounds, styles, and techniques . There is an abundance of amateur teachers in India who transfer bad technique and habits and fail to ignite the joy of music in students. My goal is to filter this out for my students, through my own experience with numerous teachers over the years.

Learning an instrument is one of the most enriching experiences one can engage in. I offer lessons in different formats:


Private lessons in Ahmedabad, India

If you are in Ahmedabad and want to learn classical guitar, please get in touch. I only take on 3-4 students at a time so register your interest asap!

Online Lessons

Learn from me from anywhere. Online lessons are very common and have their own advantages, such as recording the lessons which can be played back, and connivence of scheduling. Email me to learn more

Lessons in other locations

I am constantly traveling for concerts and may be coming to your city. Email me if you are interested in taking lessons and I will try my best to accommodate you

Masterclasses and workshops

Some of the most inspiring moments of my learning have been through guest lectures and masterclasses, through musicians who break your daily learning routine and provide students with some fresh and unconventional lessons to ponder over.  

If you are an institution, such as a music academy, and interested in providing public or private masterclasses to your students please write to me. I can design a lecture/workshop to suit the level of your students, and musicianship lessons to suit all instruments. 


A core aspect of my teaching is to encourage students to share and contribute as musicians to society, rather than keep practising in an isolated room. Hence their progress is marked through recordings and performances which I help them with, so that they can share their creativity with their friends.

Another important aspect about my lessons is to learn theory through practice and experience. I encounter many musicians in India who display a disconnect between their theoretical ad practical knowledge. In my lessons a theoretical or analytical concept is learnt by the ears and not just on paper , leading to musicianship that goes beyond just the technicalities of the instrument. 

Aditya has a gentle and encouraging approach to teaching the classical guitar. His classes are tailor made to suit my skill level. He helps me set goals and with his calm nudging, I’ve seen a lot of improvement in my work. His exercises on improving my technique have helped me play more efficiently. I find theory lessons with him very interesting and he explains the concepts patiently and informatively. He is a very pleasant person and his classes are very engaging as he has a lot of knowledge to share in a non pedantic manner. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
