Your teacher

Elise Hermans


Starting and advanced adults are the heart of the guitar class at Kunstenzoo. You can contact Elise to play together weekly (or another frequency of your choice), learn new music, or practice a specific technique or style. Before the lessons start, we make a number of agreements and goals during the trial lesson. This can be about how often you want to practice, whether you like to learn new things, or preferably learn to play more smoothly with what you can already do. Do you want to learn specific songs, or do you want to be surprised? It's all possible.​

Youth & children

For young people, we recommend that you first follow the starter course for young people for a year. (more info)
If you prefer to take lessons alone, you can count on a friendly and gentle approach during the lessons with Elise. The core of the first lessons is based on making and keeping agreements and goals. It's completely up to you how much time you want to put into your guitar playing, but a first big step in learning an instrument is to learn that the output you want should be in line with the input you're giving yourself. (the relationship between practice and expectations). 
You are always invited to talk about your own music taste, and Elise does her best to incorporate your musical interests into the lesson plan.

Volwassenen Startende en gevorderde volwassenen zijn het hart van de gitaarklas bij Kunstenzoo. Je kan bij Elise terecht om wekelijks (of een andere frequentie naar keuze) samen te spelen, nieuwe muziek te leren, of te oefenen op een specifieke techniek of stijl. Voor de lessen van start gaan maken we tijdens de proefles een aantal afspraken en doelen. Dit kan gaan over hoe vaak je wilt oefenen, of je graag nieuwe dingen bijleert, of liefst vlotter leert spelen met wat je al kan. Wil je specifieke nummers leren, of wil je je laten verrassen? Het kan allemaal.​ ​ Jongeren & kinderen Voor jongeren raden we je aan eerst een jaartje de starterscursus voor jongeren te volgen. (meer info) Indien je toch liever alleen les volgt, kan je tijdens de lessen bij Elise rekenen op een vriendelijke en zachtaardige aanpak. De kern van de eerste lessen berust op het maken van, en nakomen van afspraken en doelen. Het is volledig aan jou hoeveel tijd je in je gitaarspel wilt steken, maar een eerste grote stap in het aanleren van een instrument is om te leren dat de output die je wenst in lijn moet liggen met de input die je zelf geeft. (de verhouding tussen oefenen en verwachtingen).  Je wordt steeds uitgenodigd om te vertellen over je eigen muzieksmaak, en Elise doet haar best jouw muzikale interesses te verwerken in het lessenplan.​
