Over Nikos C.
Born in Limassol, Cyprus in 1991, I started with guitar around the age of 16 and was mostly self-taught at that time. First through Rock/Metal music, I built my own band while composing original songs and eventually started performing in Rock clubs and festivals around the island.
Gradually the musical search moved into Jazz and the improvisational aspect of music.
In 2013 I enrolled in ArtEZ University of the Arts Arnhem where I obtained my Bachelor degree in Jazz & Pop Guitar Performance.
Through this time, besides leading my own groups with original compositions, being a side-man for various projects within Jazz, Pop and Free Improvised Music I has also performed for dance, film and art productions in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Currently residing in The Hague after finishing my Master’s degree at Codarts Rotterdam, I continue to compose new material and develop further in my musical journey with various band formations.
I can provide material on:
Guitar Technique: From scales, chords, arpeggios, sight reading, to fingerings, picking/plugging methods, speed and accuracy.
Rhythm: Timing precision/freedom, polyrhythms, odd meters and coordination.
Theory, Harmony and Composition: Using examples from Classical to Pop and Jazz music to learn how to use harmony in a functional but yet free and creative way.
Improvisation: How to improvise melodically over different chords schemes but also broader aspects such as building and breaking tension waves and telling an artistic story.
Most importantly having fun and learning songs!
Available for band coaching and group lessons.
Lessons take place in The Hague and surrounding areas and online through the online portal of Muziekonderwijs.
