"My philosophy in teaching:
relaxation and regularity"
Learning guitar through relaxation in Berlin //
Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Anaïs-Nour, I am a professional guitarist and composer living in Berlin. I offer guitar classes to all levels and ages.
For 9 years, I have been developing a special pedagogy consisting of teaching the guitar through the experience of deep relaxation. Making your instrument practice a moment of well being, reconnecting to your body and sensations is a core element of my method.
My goal is that at the end of our lesson, you feel confident, relaxed and happy to play the songs and repertoire you like the most.
I give to every student the maximum attention and follow up for an optimal progress, by preparing a customised program, always cultivating joy and lightness in learning.
Who I am //
Anaïs-Nour Benlachhab is a French guitarist and composer currently living in Berlin. After her degree in guitar and ballet at the Conservatoire Nationale de Région de Montpellier, she then earned a Bachelor's degree in musicology from the University Jean-Jaurès Toulouse II and a Diploma of Musical Studies in composition at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Toulouse.
She is currently pursuing her artistic and musical research completing a Master's degree in composition at the Hanns Eisler Hochschule für Musik of Berlin. Parallel to her graduate studies she follows her passion for teaching guitar to children and adults.
Her affection for transdisciplinary creation has led her to collaborate and compose for numerous projects with internationally renowned artists and cultural organisations.
Teaching method //
What makes my pedagogy special is the combination of relaxation exercises: breathing techniques, body scan, yoga stretching and more, with guitar right and left-hand techniques, synchronization, and musicality development.
By doing this, we prepare you to be ready to receive and process new information with efficiency, and you will finish the course fully relaxed and confident.
I continue to refine my pedagogy with all my students from who I learn as much as I teach them.
"My teaching philosophy in teaching:
relaxation and regularity"
Our modern life can be very exciting and stressful at the same time, which often results in a lack of creativity. Learning an instrument has a positive impact on our brain, it keeps us young, swift, and renhances our memory.
In the years I spent playing several instruments, I developed and refined my learning and teaching methods, which are based on relaxation and body consciousness.
Giving you the opportunity to make fast progress with the instrument and helping you find a mind and body balance, to feel good and confident, everyday a bit more.
By taking in a limited number of students, I make sure to focus on your individual needs and give you the necessary attention.
I strongly believe that everyone has talent and that creativity is essential in our life. With regular practice and good guidance, everybody can enjoy playing the guitar.
