Sauli Palmujoki graduated from Tampere University of Applied Sciences in 2016 with the qualification of guitar teacher. In addition to teaching guitar, Sauli has worked as a music teacher in upper schools and high schools. Sauli is a versatile musician who writes songs and composes music.
Children can start learning to play the guitar as early as at the age of 5. Adults can study the guitar in Taidetöölö too, at any age and level of proficiency in playing the instrument. We offer lessons in acoustic and electric guitar, as well as electric bass. The repertoire for adults is chosen in accordance with the student’s preferences. It can be classical, rock, or jazz. Taidetöölö’s teacher Itzam Zapata also teaches improvisation, composition, and flamenco technique.
At the first guitar lessons, a beginner learns to read sheet music and tablature and to produce their first sounds. As early as at the first lesson, the student will be able to perform a simple piece on the guitar accompanied by the teacher.
The guitar has a very beautiful sound that is pleasant to the ear, which you can easily learn to produce at your very first lesson.
Our 3-year old daughter has been learning piano with Irina, and we couldn’t be happier! She is the perfect type of teacher — patient, encouraging and creative — to help our child learn and keep her interest going. A lot of theory and practice goes into a seemingly short 20-minute lesson, but this is the perfect amount of time for a kid this age. We’re grateful for Irina’s ability to cultivate our child’s interest in learning a musical instrument, and look forward to her attending Taidetöölö well into the future.
Johanna was very enthusiastic teacher. She was always encouraging me. Great flute lesson with her.
Todella hyvät ja kehittävät tunnit tekivät soittamisesta hauskaa! 30 min soittoaikana kyllä tosi lyhyt, varsinkin kun soittajan vaihtumisen kuluu melkein puolet ajasta.Pääsin tosi hyvin alkuun tunneillanne viulun soitossa! kiitos siitä 🙂
Positiviista ja asiantuntevaa opetusta kaiken tasoisille. Voin suositella myös aikusille vasta-aloittelijoille.
Olen käynyt Johanna Kärkkäisen huilutunneilla: opetus oli ammattitaitoista, kannustavaa ja innostavaa. Jatkan mielelläni kunhan aikataluluni näyttävät rauhallisemmilta =o)
We enjoy lessons every times! Our daughter is quite young, but Irina could have devised how she like and is interested in the piano: doing many things in a lesson for keeping her concentration, and repeatedly practicing a bit difficult tasks. The lesson is good to get skills for piano and also for developing her intelligence.
Irinan taitavan ohjauksen alla heräsi uuteen eloon uskoni, että voisin vielä aikuisenakin kehittää joskus lapsuudessa hankittua vähäistä pianon soittamisen taitoani. Pääsin harjoittelemaan omaan tahtiin, joustavasti omassa aikataulussa ja sain juuri tarvittavan määrän opastusta, jotta pääsisin omaan sen hetkiseen tavoitteeseeni. Käytännön harjoituksen rinnalla Irina ei unohda myöskään musiikin teoriaa, jota annostelee sopivin määrin sen tullessa esiin.
As an adult student (now in beginning violin), I have taken many lessons in my life with lots of teachers. Natalia is my first music teacher, and she is one of the best teachers I have met. She is really good at knowing exactly what kinds of exercises I need to progress and to stay motivated. And when I am slow at understanding certain concepts or at being able to replicate certain finger positions or bow movements, she always comes up with creative and personal ways to explain and help me get it. That’s a real gift. Plus, she and Irina (and everyone at Taidetöölö) are just really nice people to work with!
Milla is wonderful. She is a very good teacher with real passion for what she does. :)Definetely worthy!
Kiitos ihanasta ja selkeästä opetustavasta Irina! Mielestäni (ja varmasti myös lasten mielestä) olet lämmin, ymmärtäväinen, taitava ja sopivia tavoitteita lapsille antava opettaja. Jatka samaan malliin.
I was glad that I found Taidetöölö in Helsinki that they would accept adult students as well. I enjoyed playing piano with Irina, and motivated by her all the time. Great experience, glad to know Irina and others. Thanks for the great time!
I really like my piano and guitar teachers: Thomas and Itzam. I enjoy every single of my lessons.
It’s great that here one can begin to study at any age. School is located in a nice district; it’s easy to get here by any transport. School has very friendly and positive environment. Teachers are competent, and nice with students. Timetable is flexible and should fit anyone.I am very happy that I found this school!
Ammattilaiset opettajat ja hyvä palvelu. Suosittelen!
Great experience. Very helpful team! Keep going!
