Jazz & Brazilian music
Hi! My name is Juanfer Marrero, and I am a guitarist and composer from Sevilla, Spain, currently living in Rotterdam. I lead the band Echo Sister and the upcoming label Juanfer Marrero Projects. I also play for singer-songwriter Alexandra Alden and compose music for theater plays (Spanish and French companies mostly). I started playing the guitar at the age of 12, inspired by guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and John Frusciante. I discovered jazz when I studied in Barcelona at the age of 19. During my study I met and played with incredible artists like Gary Willis. In 2013 I moved to Rotterdam and studied Brazilian music at Codarts, where I explored another side of the guitar with music from masters like Badem Powell and João Bosco.
I’ve been teaching for the past 10 years. For me it is really important to adapt myself to the needs and expectations of the students. Since I’ve been exploring and experimenting a wide variation of music styles we can work with electric, acoustic or classical guitar, styles like pop, rock, funk, jazz and Brazilian music with repertoire of your liking.If you are also interested in expanding your knowledge of guitar gear, like effects pedals and how to use them, I’m a pedal nerd who expended a lot of time on sound design and ambience creation, so we can totally dig it!Last but not least I offer electric bass lessons for beginners. In these lessons you will learn to start grooving and practice your first songs.
