Gero was born in 1988 close to Cologne, Germany. After several years of keyboard lessons and general music education, he took up playing the guitar in his early youth and soon gained prolific experience as a guitarist in Rock-, Pop-, Jazz- and big bands, as a session musician and as a guitar teacher. After living in Iceland from 2007 – 2008, he returned to Cologne where he began his studies in Jazz guitar at the Cologne College of Music from which he graduated in 2014.

With more than ten years of experience as a guitar tutor, both privately and at music schools, Gero is equipped to teach a wide range of musical styles to students of all age groups and skill levels.
Apart from teaching the guitar, he also gives lessons in harmony and improvisation, either combined with instrumental lessons or taught separately.
