“Bertrand takes a holistic approach to guitar instruction that incorporates the fundamentals of breathing, ergonomics, posture, form to help build strength, agility, and healthy technique as the scaffolding for musical growth while inspiring students with his own infectious love of music across multiple genres. As a beginner folk singer-songwriter I took a fingerstyle guitar accompaniment class with Bertrand and found he was able to teach to multiple levels within the class and respond effectively to a range of student interests and questions. I came away from every session with new “tools” that helped free my own musical voice.” – SJ (student from Spring I 2021 semester)

Bertrand Laurence

Complete beginners and advanced players alike have gained powerful insights from Bertrand’s time-tested, easy yet empowering approach.

His philosophy: At any age and levels, while singing or playing, our bodies are our first instruments, so we focus on relaxation, effortlessness and flowing ergonomics. A relaxed playful, open mind-set makes focusing and learning much better, brain scientists agree.
