Theo Kummer


Théo started playing the guitar about 15 years ago, after he saw a guitar in a dream and since that moment he’s been living a real love story with this instrument. He studied guitar in Geneva with a few different teachers before going to South America to learn latin music, especially cuban music. He then moved to London and got his Bachelor in Music (guitar and production) from the LCCM in 2012. After coming back to Geneva and working as a music teacher and session musician and decided to start a master’s degree in music teaching at the “HEM” in Geneva, which he obtained in June 2019.

He now teaches private lessons in electric and acoustic guitar, ukulélé and piano. He’s specialised in Afro-American music such as Soul, Blues, Jazz, R’nB, Hip-Hop and many styles of African, Caribbean and Latin music.

He’s also collaborating with many different artists such as Dawn Richards (US), Karami (FR), X-men (FR), Ted Beaubrun, Classik Luvanga, Maeva (UK) or previously Sonia Grimm and Colors Record (CH). He’s played over 400 gigs and featured in a dozen of albums as a session musician, producer or arranger playing, guitar, bass and piano.

He toured in Egypt  in June 2017 with Classik Luvanga, in France with Penfield, in Haiti with Ted Beaubrun and in Switzerland with Sonia Grimm.

His music also appears on the swiss movie “Tapis Rouge” released in 2015.

Always looking for new adventures, he often accompanies various singers and he also just started a new improvisation workshop in Geneva called JamLab, looking to share his love and passion of music.

He now teaches guitar at the prestigious HEM in Geneva.
