« Perfect! Arpan is an incredible bass and guitar teacher. I reached out to Arpan after discontinuing guitar lessons 2 - 2.5 years ago. He is an expert in music theory and has been extremely patient with this slow learner to achieve my goals. My lessons with Arpan has been over Zoom/Skype. The learning experience has been better than I could have imagined. I strongly recommend Arpan. »

Guitar and bass classes conducted by Delhi-based musician Arpan Kumar (bass player for Dee En)

Methodology

I am comfortable teaching both beginner and intermediate/advanced students. Although there are differences in my methodology depending on the student's ability, there are two things I constantly focus on with every student: the Technical and Theoretical elements of music.

Beginners will be taught the CAGED guitar system so that they can learn and play a range of basic chord shapes and switch between them (the Technical element). This will enable them to play hundreds of popular songs within a few weeks! After they have gained this ability, they will be taught simple music theory concepts such as the Circle of 5th and Circle of 4th, as well as the ability to read sheet music (the Theoretical element). Combining these two elements together, students can develop a more holistic understanding of music and grow as musicians.

For intermediate/advanced students, my methodology will vary depending on the student's musical goals and interests. I can teach a variety of genres ranging from rock, pop, metal, Bollywood, jazz, RnB, and country.

During my time in law school, I taught guitar and bass to many colleagues who appreciated my patient nature and ability to explain musical concepts in a simple manner. Thus, I look forward to teaching students of all ages! My timings are very flexible and I can give lessons at my residence, the student's residence (provided it is within 10 km of my residence), and via webcam.

Background

I'm a law graduate from Jindal Global Law School but have always had a deep passion for music and thus decided to pursue music as a career instead. I've performed at internationally renowned music festivals such as Magnetic Fields and Ziro Festival of Music with Dee En. I also have a strong background in music theory having cleared Grade 7 of the Rockschool exams for guitar. During my time in law school, I taught guitar and bass to many colleagues who appreciated my patient nature and ability to explain musical concepts in a simple manner.

Arpan's CV

I am a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, keyboards, vocals) and have received Grade 7 certification from Rockschool in guitar. Currently, I'm playing bass guitar for Dee En, a Delhi-based psychedelic rock band.

Perfect! Arpan is an incredible bass and guitar teacher. I reached out to Arpan after discontinuing guitar lessons 2 - 2.5 years ago.

He is an expert in music theory and has been extremely patient with this slow learner to achieve my goals.

My lessons with Arpan has been over Zoom/Skype. The learning experience has been better than I could have imagined.

I strongly recommend Arpan.

Arpan's response

He is a very enthusiastic and patient learner. It is also fun to talk about various non-music related things with him since he is a very friendly person. Teaching him has been a pleasure!

Pranay

Arpan is a proficient Guitar player and it shows in his playing and songwriting. His holistic approach will be very beneficial to the students as his focus is not only improving the student as a guitar player, but as a musician. Check out his work on the various social media platforms that he's on.

Akshat

I have been in a band with Arpan for 3 years and have learnt a huge deal about how to listen to music and incorporate it into songwriting and playing. It's a very interesting experimental approach to learning which he advocates, not focussing solely on technically learning, but also finding your own sound. It would be a lot of fun jamming with and learning from Arpan

Ashrey

Arpan is an extremely skilled musician who makes sure that you learn in a manner that enables you to play what you want to hear yourself play. With technical expertise and versatile musical understanding, the classes go by like a breeze

Music is his passion.
He is very patient with his students.
He has a very friendly approach towards his students.
His disposition is very amenable.
And his understanding of music is superb!

Antara

Arpan plays the bass guitar with rigour and care, which agrees with his philosophy of every component in a music composition having its own personality. Conversations with him make one respect novelty, skill, and effort, in music. He is also extremely articulate, and explains well the work one has to perform to achieve a note. He is sensitive, and professional as a teacher, allowing people to work on their pace while providing instruction efficiently. The experience he has gained from playing with different bands, at music festivals and otherwise, is helpful for anyone looking for practical advice.

Shakun

He is passionate about music
He is a skilled teacher.
He teaches because of his love for the music . His basics about music are absolutely clear and his foundation is strong. You will enjoy the whole learning process and it won't be rote learning .
So enjoy the process.
Good luck !
