I’d definitely recommend Merel if your looking for guitar lessons. She’s listens and takes note of where you are at and creates personalised lessons accordingly.
She’s easy to get along with making a great experience.

Merel is geduldig en helpt je goed op weg, ze heeft me meer geleerd dan dat ik in 10 jaar heb geleerd met gitaar spelen. Wie overweegt om gitaarles te nemen zal aan Merel een goede hebben. Definitief een aanrader.

I have been taking lessons from Merel for five weeks and the experience has been fantastic! Merel is incredibly patient and considers the musical interests and goals of her students. At first I thought that taking lessons from an actual rock star (she definitely is one whether she considers herself to be one or not) would be intimidating, but I can’t imagine taking lessons from anyone else. Our lessons are the highlight of my week. Thank you Merel!
I promise I’ll try to practice more.😆

I started lessons with Merel in September 2020 and its one of the best decisions ive made! I mainly played acoustic and played some simple chords but felt I was a bit stuck as far progressing. I wanted to get more into the electric guitar and build up my confidence in my abilities and these lessons have been so amazing. I was in a car accident which caused my to develop arthritis in my left hand so some of my fingers are bent and it really impacted my confidence and how much I felt i could progress on guitar. After one lesson I felt a new sense of enthusiasm and excitement. Merel meets you at your level wherever you are on the guitar and teaches you in a fun, exciting and engaging way. Im really enjoying this experience, its got me excited about the guitar again and is helping me with my confidence too.
Merel is such an amazing musician and guitar player and her passion, energy and friendly nature make you feel some comfortable and at ease. For the first time I truly believe with practice you can master the guitar too. Thank you Merel looking forward to the next session 🙂

Mu playing has improved a lot since starting lessons with Merel, and I have learned that one doesn’t have to be thr fastest to be the best! I’ve also learned a lot about myself as a player and we are beginning to get into songwriting. Merel is very knowledgeable, patient and has realworld experience of the music industry and is one of the most versstile players I’ve seen. Would certainly recommend!
I signed up for guitar lessons with Merel back in September 2018, as I really wanted to work on my picking technique and needed help with that. It was also really convenient that she lives around the corner, so I could be there in just a couple of minutes!
And I must say it has been the best decision I’ve made in a long time. Not only were the lessons really helpful, they were also really fun. Merel has a great, approachable personality, which makes following lessons (and orders? lol) a breeze and something to look forward to. And yes, indeed my picking technique improved drastically, thanks to her tips and teaching! But it didn’t stop there, of course. Many other guitar techniques and even tips on recording were addressed and it has really helped me in my playing style. I can definitely notice the benefits when playing (and also recording) with my two bands (ONHEIL and Mask of Insanity).
Last, but not least, when the Corona virus struck, Merel was forced to use Skype only for guitar lessons. At first it seemed inconvenient, but it actually worked rather well. A good solution for a difficult time. In total I have had guitars lessons with Merel for 1 year and 9 months and only decided to stop, due to financial reasons (#fckcorona). When we live in better times again, I will definitely sign up for lessons again in a heart beat!
Merel, again, thank you for all your teachings, wisdom and good company. I will definitely apply all lessons learned on stage and on the albums. Rock on, stay safe and good luck with your band, Dear Mother!
