“Before I came to Gonçalo, I had had other teachers that did not have a structured approach and I was making only very little progress. After starting lessons with him, I felt an immediate improvement from day one. One of the most exciting things that made the difference for me was how fast I got the results I wanted. He also keeps my motivation in check so that I enjoy playing everyday. If you want are looking for guitar lessons in Zürich, you should definitely try Gonçalo out!” – Jana J.
“Thanks to Gonçalo I feel and sound much better playing the guitar, and it was quicker than I expected.
I started having guitar lessons recently and although it’s early I’ve already improved a lot, especially in my confidence. And Gonçalo is amazing, super patient and attentive to my needs.
I was stuck in my guitar playing until I met Gonçalo. It’s really worth the money and time you put in…. Thank you Gonçalo.” – Bruno P.
“I found Gonçalo’s website on the iternet. After the free trial lesson, I was convinced I had found the right teacher for me. As I had had guitar classes as a young child before, I could immediately see the difference in approach and how it would impact my learning and playing. Gonçalo showed me very interesting learning techniques and the use of very helpful apps and other interesting techniques.
His careful and considerate approach to teaching, as well as his positive attitude brought my joy to music back, after I had lost it for several years! I am extremely thankful for that!” – Brigitta K.

Frequently Asked Questions
I give class in a central location in Zurich, very near the main train station.
From there you can easily reach my teaching location by foot. I also develop materials and recording for my students that are willing to learn and review their lessons when travelling – don’t hesitate to contact me (or better yet, call to book a trial lesson), so that I can better explain you the details.
I offer a wide variety of programs and courses that address different needs, like for example private or group classes, courses that focus on specific topics like technique or improvisation, beginner’s courses and also programs where a student is able to come more than once a week. You are more than welcome to attend a free trial lesson with me, there we will understand what your needs are and will therefore find the right program for you.
I focus mainly on 2 aspects when teaching class: That you are able to achieve your goals as quickly as humanly possible without losing any quality in the process and that you have fun while going through the process. I choose to focus on this because learning the guitar is like a trip – and the traveller must feel motivated to practice and to play. I have come time and time again to the same conclusion, that a student, that constantly achieves his/her goals and that has fun during the process (most of the time) is the one that sticks to the process until he becomes the guitar player that he/she wants to be.
I personally think that each student benefits from taking lessons, regardless of playing level. If you feel unsure whether classes may or may not be beneficial to you, I highly encourage you to come to one of my trial sessions. In order to see if we could be a good fit, I like to get to know a student a little before we come to the conclusion that we would like to start classes together. If we come to terms with that, I will definitely be willing to show you how my classes will benefit you.
