Learn to play the Blues

Volker Klenner is currently teaching at the public music school:

Musikschule Reichenbach an der Fils

He will teach the Electric Guitar / Modern GuitarStyles.

The lessons will happen to the stylistic interest of the students, but the so called "American Guitar Styles " - Blues / Country / R&B / Slide - will be the main topic. So, if you like the Blues and live in the Stuttgart area, there´s a possibility to "learn the Blues at school". And if you need - the lessons will be held in english language.
