The Free guitar Lessons in Amsterdam is a unique project conceived by MusicVibes co-founder, Rafael Fraga, musician and composer: a weekly group guitar lesson, free and open to whoever wants to participate. Rafael’s aim was to create an opportunity for people in Amsterdam to share their passion for music in a relaxed and enriching atmospherePic frame FGL2, where people could learn the guitar/music from a professional musician. Totally for free! And so was born this special project. It’s directed to (absolute) beginners who like to have a first contact with the guitar and those with already (some) experience, but most importantly to those who want to enjoy making music together.

How it works

Each season of the Free Guitar Lessons includes 12 lessons followed by a final concert. To join use the form below.

And is it really for free?

Yes, participants don’t pay for the teaching.

Nevertheless, you need to cover an application fee of €50 (for administration expenses, rent, etc.) and a commitment fee: you pay €50 in the beginning of the season but if you attend at least 11 out of the 12 lessons and the Final Concert, you get your €50 back!


The lessons are conducted by Rafael Fraga, professional guitarist and composer, along with guest musicians.
