In my age of 15, I started to play drum kit and engaged in music unprofessionally. Later on I finished teaching music undergraduate program in Dokuz Eylul University with classical guitar major. I have also vocalised classical guitar repertoire in many university and concert halls. During undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, I have made some masterclass workshops with famous composer and interpreters like Carlo Domiconi, PavelStaidl, Nora Bushman, Marco Socias, Victor Monge Serranito, Ricardo Moyano. I started teaching during university and I have been continuing teaching in this area for 20 years. I have given tutorials notably on classical guitar and some other instruments like electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and drum kit. My teaching experience has expanded beginning from primary school students to university students during years. Lastly I have given classical guitar tutorials in Mef University. I have also focused on popular music education besides classical music performance. I have made various classical music arrangements and compositions by continuing on my theory and harmony works. I have made motivation and group coaching on the genres as pop, jazz and rock by gathering my students together. I composed a musical called “Parents Meeting” in 2016 music and production of which were undertaken by me. I actively coached 12 primary school students during rehersals. This musical was put on the stage in İstanbul International School and got credit by audience. I have gained experience on certification exam education for many years in Turkish resresentative schools of A.B.R.S.M and L.C.M. I have prepared many students for the areas of classical guitar, drum kit, theory, electric guitar and bass guitar and my students have had succesful results. My music production and transcribership works upon which I have been educating myself for the last 6 years to enhance my personal development and to command on new technological trends; have brought positive conclusions. They have become not only extra material abundancy for my lesson contents but also professional hobbies that I enjoy besides music teaching activity. There have been many singles, album records, transcribership and compositions both for me and other singers by me. In the light of all these experience, making music with passion and transferring my experience to my students with the same passion have become my initial personality feature. Developing systems according to my students’ way of learning and being an inspiration for them have always brought positive conclusion in my teaching life. I will always be open to the platforms and opinions that help me enhance my music production process and experience with the same passion and excitement.
