Rockschool London Certified Guitar and Bass Guitar Instructor with 15 years of experience

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.

I have been teaching music for the past 5 years to students ranging from the ages of 7 to 65 and have found it be a wholly enriching experience! My timings are very flexible and I can give lessons at my residence, the student's residence (provided it is within 5 km of my residence), and via webcam.

Background

Arpan Kumar is a multi-instrumentalist and music producer capable of playing over five instruments with proficiency, including guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, and vocals. After completing Grade 7 of the prestigious Rockschool London examinations under the tutelage of Mr.Sonam Sherpa from the universally loved rock band Parikrama, Arpan has gone on to release multiple critically acclaimed albums himself with his band DEE EN and played at international music festivals such as NH7 Weekender, Magnetic Fields Festival and Ziro Festival of Music, amongst others. He is also the go-to session player for various artists, regularly playing at venues across the country.

He has also featured in a docu-series on the Doordarshan channel called "Bands on the Road" with his band DEE EN which focused on the band's gruelling month-long tour encompassing all seven states in the Northeast of India and documented their travels, experiences, and performances during that time.

DEE EN is a band based in New Delhi who have released 3 albums to critical acclaim from prominent media outlets such as Rolling Stone and Wild City and have performed alongside top international and domestic artists such as Lucky Ali, Opeth, Chet Faker, Indian Ocean, Kodaline, Sivamani and Ritviz. Their music is available on all streaming platforms.

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.

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).

Arpan's response

He is a very fast learner who is constantly inquisitive about various aspects of music theory. Classes with him go by like a breeze!

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!

Arpan is very patient and supportive, I’m so glad I found him. He's passionate and definitely teaches with his heart.

He’s always punctual and takes the time to be encouraging; makes you comfortable, regardless of your skill level.

I would highly recommend Arpan to anyone just starting out with guitar!

I've been getting lessons with Arpan for more than 10 months now and I have improved a lot. Arpan is a very professional and has immense music knowledge. I could easily apply the musical concepts on the songs that I already liked. Communicate your goals with him and he'll accordingly modify his approach.

I've known Arpan for a long time. He's always been really passionate about music. It's always a pleasure to see him play, discuss music with him and now learn to play from him. Learning from him is super fun as there's so much to talk about music with him. I would highly recommend him!

When you care about something from your heart and soul it shows! Arpan is extremely passionate about music and his dedication to it shows not only through his own creations but also through his love for teaching music. He is talented, patient and most importantly fully committed towards his art. What more can you ask for in a teacher!

Highly recommended. super talented, patient, hard working teacher. 5/5. Thank you so much for taking me from a complete amateur to a technically sound and confident musician!

Kunj

I took lessons from Arpan for about an year and that's when I grew the most as a guitar-player. He helped me get a hold of the basics but also tailored the classes to my personal preferences and taught me songs and skills I wanted to learn. He is well versed in many different genres from rock to jazz to blues

Y
Yuvraj

Mr Kumar has been the best music teacher I have ever had. Many concepts of mine were incorrect and vague but he always takes the time and patience to evaluate my approach to both guitar playing and music theory and then shows me simple and effective ways to get the results I want. Highly recommended!
