Since 1998, Anders Miolin is Professor for the Guitar at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), Zurich, Switzerland.
This appointment is the culmination of more than 20 years of professional experience in music education, which Prof. Miolin has always been passionate about.
Anders Miolin has developed a comprehensive guitar teaching concept intended to benefit a guitar player of every level, beginner to professional. The concept is based on years-long experience of professional musicianship combined with knowledge from neuroscience, psychology  and ergonomics.
This concept aims to empower every guitar player to maximize their potential in the best possible way by making use of the knowledge from the combined fields of psychological and physiological science and music, in a way that enables them to realize their true potential and make the most efficient use of their practice time and mental and physical energy. Much experience- and theory-based attention is given to the subject of making the best use of one's resources and developing a healthy posture, thus preventing muscle strain and injury.
