Mhyar has experience teaching guitar in schools in France, and in a private capacity to students of all ages.
With a big interest in popular music from around the world, Mhyar enjoys playing Brazilian choro, African rhythms and oriental scales using classical guitar techniques inspired byYamandu Costa and Derek Gripper.
